December 14. 1976 PAGE 12 HAYS DAILY NEWS Holiday Greetings A passerby walks beneath the giant Christmas message someone painted on the plastic that envelopes the Southwestern Bell construction project.

Hospital Notes Vera, a mysterious woman of unknown whereabouts, has been wished a merry Christinas in a most unorthodox fashion. Someone unafraid of heights painted "Merry Xmas Vera" on the clear plastic that protects the northwest wall of the Southwestern Bell Telephone building project at 10th and Fort. The plastic traps heat to allow bricklayers to practice their trade in cold weather. Ron Bradshaw, foreman for R.D. Anderson Construction Co., said someone apparently climbed the scaffolding to paint the red-lettered message on the inside of the plastic.

Ken Mai Southwestern Bell manager says he's a bit unhappy that the painter scampered around the skeletal building, which will house a new electronic telephone switching system. "But you can't keep (trespassers) out," he added. Tea Break Costs British Factories LONDON (UPI) — Abuse of the traditional tea break is partly to blame for the inefficiency of Britain's factory construction workers, a government report said Monday. The National Economic Development Office report, based on a study of 18 British and foreign construction sites, said British construction projects take longer than foreign ones, manning levels are considerably higher, productivity is lower and less of the working day is spent actually working. Of the traditional tea breaks and rest periods, the report said: "These matters have long been determined by custom and practice and are at the discretion of the parties on site, but the observation suggested more abuse of these allowances on British sites." 'Saints' Spend Time In Jail LAKE CHARLES, La. (UPI) — Two men calling themselves Jesus Christ and Brother Francis will serve five days in the city jail for hitchhiking on a highway. The men, later identified as Michael John Reed of Brookline, Mich., and Frank Ray Edwards of Santa Barbara, Calif., told arresting officers Monday they lived in Heaven and listed their occupations as saints. Brother Francis also said he was a street preacher. The men were found hitchhiking on Interstate 10 wearing long flowing gowns with their heads wrapped in lurbans.

C KANSAS CITY LIVESTOCK awaited the international oil cartel's crucial decision on prices. . The Dow Jones industrial average, down nearly five points earlier, was off 2.58 to 971.66 shortly before 1:15 p.m. EST. The blue-chip average, which gained 1.09 points Monday, has climbed more than 50 points in the past month, making its stocks vulnerable to profit taking. The NYSE common Stock index was down 0.15 to 56.20 and the average price of a common share was off nine cents. Declines led advances, 745 to 539, among the 1.-812 issues crossing the tape. The 530 unchanged issues reflected investor uncertainty! The three-hour turnover amounted to about 12,590,000 shares, compared with 13,330,000 traded during the same period Monday. The NYSE high-speed transaction tape ran six minutes late in the first half hour. Wall Street observers said they expected the ministers of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to raise oil prices by about 10 per cent at their Qatar meeting Wednesday. That would add about $12 billion to the industrialized world's petroleum bill. Qatar's oil minister said price increases " were inevitable because western Lesson Is Dangerous BONCHURCH, England (UPI) — Mrs. Joseph Orna may be having second thoughts about learning to drive. Police said she ended her lesson Monday by driving over a 250-foot cliff and landing in an apple tree. Joseph Orna was teaching his 49-year-old wife to drive when the car went out of control near their home, police said. It went across the road, over the sidewalk, through a fence and over the cliff. Only the apple tree 50 feet down the slope saved the car from rolling another 200 feet to the base of the cliff — where there was a row of houses, police said. Mrs. Orna was hospitalized with cuts on her arms and legs. Her husband, 68, was reported in fair condition with a broken arm and facial cuts. Meanwhile, Rep. Thomas O'Neill, the next House speaker, said the Carter administration would await the results of Christmas retail sales before making any decision is made on steps — including a tax cut — to stimulate the sagging economy. William Lilley, acting chairman of the Council on Wage and Price Stability, told a Senate Committee a prenotifi- cation policy, which the incoming Carter administration is considering, would eventually lead to wage-price controls. Carter vowed not to impose controls. Carter was scheduled to hold a news conference at 2:30 p.m. EST to announce some more members of his cabinet. W. Michael Blumenthal was expected to be named Treasury secretary. Some investors retreated to the sidelines to await the outcome of the news conference. Analysts said profit taking was not surprising in light of the market's recent gains. Many investors, in addition, were selling for tax purposes. Monday's churning action indicated there were numerous currents working in the market. McDonald's, the fast-food firm that could be hurt by oil price hikes that inhibit auto traffic, led the Big Board active list, off l'/4 to 51'/4 on 295,600 shares, including a block of 105,300 shares at 50'/fe.
