WASHINGTON (A) - The government issued a hurry-up report
yesterday showing a slight unemployment decline of 78,000 in April.

Meany stressed that employment figures failed to improve as
much as usual from March to April, a fact noted in the report from
the Commerce Department. Both also noted that the rate of unem-
ployment, seasonally adjusted, increased from 7 to 7.5 per cent of the
