Dovtr CHARLES RUGGLES Ohio unemployment rise reported COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-the Ohio Bureau of Employment Services reported Wednesday what is termed a "definite" rise in Ohio Unemployment in; November, along with a simllai 1 trend across the nation* i Bureau researchers said more unemployment looms at least through February. The bureau calls it a "seasonable pattern," with outdoor construction workers most affected. The bureau said Ohio's rate of unemployment last month was 4.8 per cent of the work force — highest level for any November since 1962. The comparable national rate was 5.5 per cent which was the highest figure for November sltieci 19*1. The state bureau said a combination of factors is to blame- fewer orders, curtailed factory production, labor - management disputes, consumer caution. and seasonal layoffs. More than 77,000 Ohio workers were listed as dispiltants In tabor . management troubles in Ohio in November. Directly affected were manufacturers of motor vehicles and equipment, hardware, metal stampings, machinery and industrial chemicals. Factory employment — excluding workers on strike—was down one-tenth from November 19.69. Weekly payroll of factory production workers totaled $141.3 million in November, low^ est level since November 1967, despite higher hourly rates. Costs of this unemployment are unknown, bureau statisticians said. Unemployment compensation replaces only a fraction of wages lost, for a limited period of,time, and not everyone unemployed is eligible. Benefits paid under Ohio Unemployment Compensation law amounted to nearly $119 million during the first 11 months of 1970 — more than double the amount paid in some months of 1969. Chavez free tor holidays SALINAS, Calif. (AP) Farm labor leader Cesar Chavez was free today to spend Christmas with his family after 20 days in a jail cell for contempt of court in continuing a nationwide lettuce boycott. The California Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered Chavez released on his own recognizance pending a hearing by the high court on his claim that an injunction he was accused of violating deprived him of constitutional rights. . The high court's 6-1 ruling also allows Chavez and his AFL-CIO United Farm Workers Organizing Committee to continue the lettuce boycott until the court has held the hearing, lor which a date is still to be set. In a news conference at the Monterey County jail steps shortly after his release, the 43- year-old Chavez, who has a chronic back ailment, said he felt well, was well treated by deputies and was "not bitter at all, about his jail term. "But no matter how well you're treated inside and how much support you have outside, a jail is still a jail," Chavez said. THE JOYS OF CHRISTMASiARE- PEST SEEN THROUGH CHILDREN'S EYES...
