Portuguese Guinea granted independence LISBON, Portugal (AP) Portugal begins the liquidation of its rebellious African empire today by signing a grant of independence for Portuguese Guinea, informed sources say. The new nation will be called Guinea-Bissau.

Secret talks on the agreement began last Friday in Algiers. Sources said that Foreign Minister Mario Scares and Overseas Territories Minister Antonio de Almeida Santos were to sign the independence agreement in the Algerian capital with leaders of the rebel movement in the West African territory, the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and the Cape Verde Islands. THE SOURCES said the government had begun to fly home some 10,000 Portuguese military personnel and their families from the territory. Portugal had a total of 25,000 troops in the colony, including native forces. The government has said some will remain after independence to insure an orderly transition of power.

Guinea-Bissau is the first part of Portugal's African holdings to get independence because it is of no economic value to Portugal, and Portugal's stake there is its smallest in Africa. The military regime that threw out the heirs of the Salazar dictatorship last April has also promised independence to Angola and MoumbJque, the two major Portuguese African territories. The rebel movement proclaimed the rebel republic of Guinea-Bissau last September. In advance of the independence agreement, Soares earlier this month asked the other members of the United Nations to recognize it and facilitate its admission to the world organization. The U.N.

Security Council on Aug. 12 recommended that the General Assembly admit Guinea-Bissau, and this will be accomplished at the assembly session opening Sept. 8. It was the first time in U.N. history that the council had recommended a territory for membership before it became independent.

A TOTAL of 107 nations have now recognized including Canada and the nine members of the European Common Market. Although the United States has not gone that far, it voted for its admission to the United Nations and indicated at the time that it would extend recognition soon after independence was granted. Sandwiched between Senegal and the republic of Guinea on the coast of the West African bulge, Guinea-Bissau has an area of 13,948 square miles somewhat smaller than Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. It has a population of 530,000, mostly poor farmers producing rice, millet, peanuts, coconuts, palm oil, copra and hides. church of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Wood predicted "inflation will taper off toward the end of the year." C. Jackson Grayson, who headed the Federal Price' Commission under Nixon, said he approves of Ford's calling of an economic summit and of the new President's plans to cut the federal budget. He said the new monitoring agency might have some influence over wages and prices, but "I am not for the jawboning that is in this monitoring agency. I think that sort of threat to the American economy will actually hi some cases increase prices rather than decreasing them." Taking a day off from the office Sunday, the President went to church, played 18 holes of golf and relaxed at a party with members of the press who traveled with him as vice president.

Many of you will encounter discrimination in employment." The Virginia chapter of NOW is sponsoring a candlelight vigil tonight just outside Arlington Cemetery.

(Continued from Page One) "tobacco smoking was the single most important factor" responsible for the highest concentrations of carbon monoxide. Smokers had three or more times the amount in their blood as nonsmokers.

High levels of the gas reduce the amount of oxygen the blood can carry through the body. It can cause drowsiness, blurred vision and reduced metal alertness. Extremely high levels in confined places can be fatal. GEOGRAPHICAL location, occupation and meteorological conditions also were found to influence carbon monoxide concentrations in the blood. Three-fourths of those studied in Denver, Los Angeles and Chicago had greater than 1.5 per cent concentrations.

In New York and Washington, D.C., 35 per cent were measured ut that level. The researchers found that city dwellers consistently had higher blood carbon monoxide concentrations than persons living in suburban and rural areas. Among occupational groups, taxicab drivers generally had higher levels of carbon monoxide than others. and Cornelia Kelly Hood Saturday afternoon.

(Independent Staff Photo) Posse (Continued from Page One) Authorities said the three shot and killed two persons who testified against some of them at previous trials. Earlier, Erath County Dist. Atty. Bob Glascow had labeled the convicts as "dangerous dudes." "We're sure they came to Texas for revenge and vengeance." By Sunday evening, more than 200 armed officers began to tighten a circle north of this Central Texas town in search of the three Colorado state prison escapees who traveled farm roads from the plains of West Texas 130 miles east to Stephenville. "WE ARE STILL assuming that they are in he area," Glascow said.

He said authorities had evacuated 12 or 15 farms in the area. The three who escaped Thursday night were wanted in connection with the. shooting deaths Saturday of rancher T. L. Baker and Mrs.

Ray Ott. Authorities said both victims had testified against two of the convicts in previous burglary cases. Colorado prison officials said one of the convicts had sworn to kill a number of persons involved in court cases that sent him to prison. The three were identified as Jerry Ulmer, 22, convicted of burglary; Dalton Williams, 29, serving a 40-to-60 year term for robbery, conspiracy and assault, and Richard Mangum, 22, serving three to five years for car theft. Authorities said rancher Baker had testified at burglary saying the man burglarized his home and stole several guns.

Mrs. Ott had testified in a trial in which Ulmer was convicted of burglarizing the Ott home. Baker was shot Saturday at his ranch. Mrs. Ott was gunned down later in the day at her home.

"They had to be looking for that house," Glascow said of the Ott residence. "It is isolated and off the highway. It's not the kind of place you would stumble across."

"This makes the Snake River the richest river in the state of Idaho. In fact, there is a rumor that all the trout are turning to gold." The first skycycle landed in the canyon last November and was not recovered until last month. Sunday's launch came without fanfare or advance warning. A spokesman for the Knievel stunt said a third skycycle was being completed in Sacramento, Calif. "I feel that under circumstances like this, when you are trying to do something that nobody else has attempted, you must have failures to achieve success," said Knievel.

"And the third time is the charm. So, there will be no more tests and everything is go for Sept. 8."
