Complied from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Factory use drops again
WASHINGTON - With goods selling slowly, U.S. manufacturers used just
69.4 percent of their factories' capacity last month, the lowest rate since the
1974-75 recession, the Federal Reserve Board reported yesterday.
The August factory-use drop of 0.5 percent below July was the 11th decline
in the 13-month recession, giving no hint that the downturn was ending.
Reagan administration officials - and some private economists, too -
have said better times should be coming before long, now that interest rates
have dropped a bit and many Americans have gained more spending money
from the big July 1 tax-rate cut.
However, government statistics this week showed industrial production
and now factory use dropping in August. There was also a 0.9 percent
decline in retail sales, a figure unlikely to encourage business executives to
increase production and hire back laid-off workers.
"These reports simply underscore the fact that the recovery is going to be
painfully slow in coming," said Allen Sinai, senior vice president of Data
Resources Inc. in Lexington, Mass.
Already weakened businesses face still more cutbacks in production and
capacity utilization, and probably more layoffs, too, he said.
Iran executes ex-minister
Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, convicted of plotting to overthrow the Iranian regime
he once zealously served as foreign minister, was executed by a firing squd
in Tehran, Iran announced yesterday.
The announcement was made by the official Islamic Republic News Agen-
cy, which said the 48-year-old former foreign minister was shot to death at
Evin Prison Wednesday night in accordance with an Islamic revolutionary
court sentence.
He had been convicted of masterminding a plot to assassinate Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini and other high-ranking officials, and topple the three-
year-old Islamic government.
He was quoted as telling the court the plan was not to overthrow the
Islamic form of government, but to "change officials in order to build the
Ghotbzadeh tried to negotiate the release of the American hostages in 1980
but was prevented from doing so because of his feud with the Moslem fun-
damentalists and lack of support from other moderates.
Unemployment claims soar
WASHINGTON- Jobless Americans filed more first-time claims for
government benefits in the week preceding Labor Day than at any other
time this year-a substantial leap which private economists say virtually
assures double-digit unemployment this fall.
Some 658,000 people filed initial benefit claims in the week ending Sept. 4, a
jump of 29,000 over the previous week, according to seasonally adjusted
figures released by the Labor Department.
It eclipsed the previous 1982 peak for unemployment insurance compen-
sation claims, when 640,000 pleas for relief were made in the second week of
January. That had been attributed by statisticians to a fluke resulting
primarily from the fact many people postponed placing their claims because
of the New Year's holiday.
U.P. residents rally in
Lansing to stop ELF
LANSING- A delegation of Upper Peninsula residents came to the
Capitol yesterday in hopes of stirring opposition in the more populous
southern Michigan to the submarine antenna Project ELF.
Spokesmen for Residents Concerned About ELF were joined at a morning
news conference by state lawmakers who explained pending legislation
aimed at blocking the project. A small rally attended by just under 100
people was held on the Capitol steps at noon.
Under current plans, ELF would consist of about 56 miles of above-ground
wires similar to telephone wires to be erected near Marquette in the U.P.
Navy officials say the antenna would permit them to communicate with
nuclear submarines running far below the ocean surface.
ELF and predecessor proposals have aroused considerable opposition on
environmental and health grounds.
Plan aims to save jobless aid
LANSING- A Milliken administration task force yesterday called for
saving Michigan's debt-ridden unemployment compensation system by
slapping new assessments on employers and workers, tightening eligibility
and curbing benefits.
Notably missing from the proposal-prepared by Commerce Director
Norton Berman, Labor Director William Long and Michigan Employment
Security Commission Director S. Martin Taylor-was a recommendation for
reinstating a one week wait for laid-off workers.

The package, designed to pay off the state's interest-bearing debt by 1986
and avert onerous penalty taxes on Michigan employers, is still likely to
prove highly controversial.
Michigan's unemployment compensation system will be $2.2 billion in debt
to the federal government by the end of this calendar year, officials predict.
