38 ' Wilmington, Del., Evening Journal November 16, 1972 ILS., Cuba To Talk on Hijackings? ' Havana Broadcast Spurs Optimism WASHINGTON iffl - U.S. officials are very encouraged by a strong Cuban signal on opening negotiations toward ending aircraft hijacking, but they emphatically deny this could lead to a normalization in relations. ,' The Cuban signal came yesterday in a broadcast from Havana, saying "the government of Cuba is willing, and without delay, to take such steps which might lead to the adoption of a broad agreement" on hijacking. Even before this broadcast was monitored in Washington, State Department spokesman Charles W. Bray told news-m'en , "We do have the irripression now that there may now be a basis for reopening negotiations" on the issue. ' BRAY described the impression as based on unspecified i'straws in the wind" as seen in previous actions and state-m e n t s by Premier Fidel Castro's government following two recent hijackings of U.S. airliners to Cuba. From the American viewpoint, the obstacle to past efforts to reach an accommodation on hijacking prevention was Havana's demand that the United States return Cu-Earis who fled to this country, 1. 1 n yesterday's broadcast, Havana criticized past American policy concerning Cuban omigration and acts by anti-. Castro elements based in the United States, but it did not repeat the demand for extradition of "illegal Cuban Emigrants." DAILY RECORD U.S. District Criminal Court Sentencing: Judge James L.

Latchum held that composition of the grand1 jury which indicted the defendants di4 not violate provisions of the Jury Selection and Service Act of 1966 and the terms of the plan of the Court for the Random Selection of Grand and Petty Jurors. i Civil - THIS omission was seen by some U.S. experts as indicating the seriousness of the Cuban proposal. - Cuba, one official said, doesn't want to be known as a haven for criminals and is willing to deal with the United ' States on that basis. This is particularly true, he said, because the two most recent hijackings involved accused murderers, bank robbers and rapists. But the American experts say there is no sign Castro wants a better relationship with Washington and they say President Nixon is not in the mood for a change either.

By LEROY POPE NEW YORK , (UPI) - A wave of construction of budget motels, charging less than $10 a night for single occupancy and sometimes as little as $11 for a couple, is cutting the cost ' of travel in the United States. . Day's Inns of Atlanta, which operates 28 budget hotels, says in newspaper advertisments "Mr. salesman, if you paid" more than $8 for your room tonight, you paid too much! Laventhol, Kreksten, Hor-wath & Horwath, statisticians of the lodging industry, named eight chains of budget motels in operation with a total of 206 motels and seven other chains 1 organized to operate, budget motels that haven't yet built any. Lowest cost of those already In operation are Motel' 6 of Santa Barbara, Calif., with 96 units at-$6.60 a" night and Scottish Inns of America, Kin- ston, Tenn., 26 motels at $6 a night. Econo-Travel Motor Inns of Norfolk, Va,. with 28 establishments, charges $7.50 a night for. a single room afco in 'the $8 class with Day's is Thr-rift Inns of Newport News, Va., with five motels. Happy Inns of Orlando, Fla., and Chalet Motor Lodges of Nashua, N.H., with 11 units between them, are around $9 and Imperial "400" of Engle-wood Cliffs, N.J., charges an average" of $10 at its 104 units. . BUDGET motels that have been organized but not yet in business include Friendly Inns . Kemmons Wilson and Wallace Johnson of Memphis, founders of Holiday Inns, didn't go too far with the junior inn venture partly because they ran into bitter opposition from Adolph and Joel Krisch. They control American Motor Inns of Roanoke, -Va., the largest single Holiday Inn franchise operator.

It has some little fiber glass cabinette junior inns with rates as low as $6. Krekstein, Horwath & Horwath and the company.'s motel expert, said the budget motel .is the greatest competitive threat the motel and hotel industry faces. He said the budget motels appeal primarily to salesmen and "to the family en route to a destination, including campers."

Like Foreign Policy Laird Sees Gain For Sharing Plan KANSAS CITY (UPI) -Looking toward the next four years of the Nixon Administration, Defense Secty. Melvin R . Laird today predicted "tremendous" increases in the application of the President's domestic revenue-sharing philosophies. Laird said rever was very close in concept to the Administration's "Nixon Doctrine," foreign policy, which calls for other nations to do more for their own defense. In a speech prepared for the Associated Press Managing Editors' annual meeting, Laird called passage of the revenue-sharing bill just before Congress adjourned last month "a major milestone." "THE next four years will, in my view, see tremendous strides in implementing this new philosophy here at home," he said. Laird said he felt qualified to talk about domestic pro grams because of his 16 years as a Republican congressman from Wisconsin, during which time he rose to become the ranking member of the House Health, Education and Welfare Appropriations, Committee. He said that now, "more than at any other time in our history," there is a close correlation between domestic and foreign policies. "Revenue-sharing the President's solution to many domestic problems has marked similarities in concept to increased burden-sharing under the Nixon doctrine in national security policy," Laird said. "THE unifying thrust in both domestic and foreign policy is an underlying trust in the ability and willingness of others to do a needed job local officials and local citi- ' zens in America, governments, and their citizens in other nations.'.' Laird told the managing editors that he is "hopeful and confident that the great initia-t i v e s which have been undertaken by our President will lead to a peace that will last." DIJON, France (AP) The first electric-powered automobiles to look like real cars instead of beach buggies or props for circus bears will go unglamorously into service next year in Dijon. Only the standard engine and transmission have been replaced in a series of 80 wor-k a d a y Renault R4s that Electricite de France, the state-owned utility monopoly, is modifying to serve as repair and customer relations cars. IT wants to push the idea that autos that don't make smoke or noise have grown out of the futureland sections of amusement parks and into something solid enough that is repairmen can start driving in June. "As far as we know, there's no other experimentation with electronic cars on this scale. Obviously, it's costing us, but we feel we are getting in right at - the beginning of something that will have tremendous growth," said Pierre Wolf, the monopoly's research director, in introducing the cars in Dijon. Turning the starter key in the remodeled R4s brings the disarming novelty of power and motion without noise. The transmission is anchored to second gear, but the car accelerates rapidly, the engine working itself up to the drone of a souped-up electric razor. THE source of power is 18 regular automotive batteries placed across the width of the car where a back seat normal ly would be. The batteries drive an electric motor linked! to each axle. The weight of the batteries close to 800 pounds and their cumber-someness is one of the big disadvantages of the car. The cars' range in city driving is 40 to 48 miles without recharging the batteries. Electricite de France says this corresponds to the normal in-town daily mileage of its vehicles in Dijon. The cars have a top speed of 40 miles per hour. Recharging the batteries takes 10 hours, but Electricite de France maintains this is unimportant because the cars normally would be out of serv- 1 The first electric ear to look like Back seat full of batteries AP Wlrephoto car ice and garaged at night. The cost in electricity works out to about 2 cents per mile. "THERE'S a great deal of research going on to get a greater yield from the batteries," says Wolf. "We have enough faith in the program to have projected building 250 of the cars for our own fleet by 1975." The choice of DiJon, a city of 150,000 in the center of France, as a test center is probably most honestly explained by the presence of Robert Poujade, the French government's minister of environment, as mayor or Dijon. Anchor Hocking' Dividend Told A quarterly dividend of $1 per share on the $4 cumulative preferred stock of Anchor Hocking Corp. has been declared by its directors, payable Jan. 1 to holders of rec-. ord Dec. 6.

Remington Arms Reports .7 Ford Rejects Holiday Bid DETROIT (B-United Auto Workers union members at Ford plants will not be getting a four-day Thanksgiving weekend. In turning down a union request to switch the Dec. 17 paid "bonus holiday" to Nov. 24, Ford said yesterday that a strong demand for Ford products makes it essential to keep the factories producing at peak performance. The "bonus holiday" was a product of 1970 contract negotiations. dates iue? darnings uro) The Du Pont Co.'s Remington Arms subsidiary yesterday reported improved sales but lower earnings for the first nine months of the year. Sales through Sept. 30 totaled $106,299,000, about 8 per cent more than the sales of $98,462,000 during the same period last year. Net income through Sept. 30 was $7,324,000 (including a nonrecurring gain of $134,000), a decline of about 12 per cent from the net income of $8,318,000 during the same period last year. Remington said the figures reflect higher operating costs and expenses associated with the opening of a new plant in Lonoke, Ark. Per-share earnings for the first nine months of this year were $1.02 (including 2 cents a share from the nonrecurring gain), compared with $1.13, (including 6 cents a share from the nonrecurring gain), for the comparable nine months of 1971. A quarterly dividend of $1,125 has been declared by Remington directors on the preferred stock, plus a year-end dividend of 20 cents a share on the common stock. Both dividends are payable Dec. 15 to holders of record Nov. 21. if there is no bar or nojes-taurant in the motel. Jft-his 1972 report on motel industry trends, Lesure pointed outjhat, the operating costs of motels' without restaurants or-bars are usually at least 20 percent below those of the full service motels. ; Lesure told United Press International - the big JWotel chains provoked the budget hotel movement in two ways. They built too many fancy mo-. tels and, when occupancy began to fall off two years ago, they tried to compensate by raising room prices sharply. THE $18 and $20 a night rale for double occupancy was already common two years' ago. But during 1971, this rate was puslhed up to $22 and even as high as $27 including sales taxes. Single occupancy rates' at the more elaborate motels have ranged from $14 up this year. Lesure said a 2-per-cent increase in occupancy rates the first four months of 1972 helped the standard motels somewhat but that competi tion from the new budget chains is becoming a real challenge. Production Up Sharply In October Economy Growth Seen Continuing WASHINGTON (F)-The Fed-e r a 1 Reserve Board . says industrial production rose sharply in October, indicating the nation's.economy is continuing to expand. ' J The board said its index of output by the nation's facto-r i e s , mines and utilities, increased .9 per cent last month. That brought the index to 116.7 per cent of the 1967 base. ' - , The biggest output gains were in consumer goods, equipment and materials. Pro-d u c t i o n of automobiles increased by 7 per cent and production schedules indicate another gain in auto output this month. . - The October gain brought the index to 9.3 per cent higher than it was at this time last year.
