-I ·i ·3 The Idaho Free Press The News-Tribune, Thursday, January 30,1975 -1 For recall of employes Auto industry's leaders optimistic WILLIAM T. CAI'PS 111. president of J. Capps Sons Lid., of Jacksonville. III., examines pislol slugs ol various caliber which were repelled by his new line of butlcl proof ' (Ui'Il'hoto) sports wear. Capps is wearing one of the products, a bullet proof ves( lined with several layers of Kevlur material originally designed for use in aulo tires. DETROIT (DPI) - One of every four aulo workers is on indefinite layoff, but the aulo industry is optimistic that some employes could be called back to their jobs as early as March. The optimism that the open- ended layoffs may have peaked at 177,000 was generated by January production, which is al a M-year low, and increased sales prompted by cash rebate programs. "I hope (hat by March or April, we will see some recall of people on indefinite layoffs and Postage rip-off detailed WASHINGTON (UP1) - Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino, II Calif., explained in the Congressional Record a way to . "rip o f f " the U.S. Postal Service by m a i l i n g letters w i t h o u t stamps. -... ·' It works this wayThe sender ·. writes his own name where the 'yaddressee's name n o r m a l l y "appears and the addressee's name in the upper left hand corner. When the letter is dropped into a - m a i l box without a postage stamp, the Postal Service "returns" it to the intended receiver after s t a m p i n g it "returned for postage." While readers of the Congressional Record chuckled, Postal Service officials did not. A top official personally delivered a letter to Lagomarsino pointing out that deliberately depositing mail without postage was a criminal offense subject .to a fine of up to $300. Lagomarsino said he revealed 'the "no-postage postage stamp" just to call the Postal Service's attention to it. then a gradual improvement in (he spring," Robert J. llamp- son, a Ford Motor Co. official, said Tuesday. iiampson, executive vice president (or Ford's Norlh American automotive operations, said production planners see less downtime at the company's plants in Ihe coming months. Ford this week had 33,125 workers on open-ended layoffs and another «,.)50 on temporary layoffs. American Motors Corp. said it plans Io idle 3,000 workers for one week starting Monday at (he Kenosha, Wis., plant that employs 10,000. The layoffs mean AMC, smallest of Ihe major automa- kers, will have 3,850 workers on temporary layoffs and another 450 on indefinite layoffs --the first for AMC since the sales slump began in September, 1973. General Motors Chairman Thomas A. Murphy has said his company probably will begin recalling some of Ihe 93,000 workers on indefinite layoffs this spring. January production is expected to total about 4-10,000 cars, (he fewest buill since the industry Uirned out -110,857 in January of 1961. The low production was needed because the worst postwar sales slump built up an inventory of 1.7 million cars entering January, a figure lhat didn't drop despite higher mid- January sales. Industry analysis said much of the improvement came in the 'small cars on which automakers are concentrating their $200 lo (GOO cash rebates. While (here will be fewer temporary plant closings in February, analysts said, the real signs of a rebound won't be seen until the number of in- definite layoffs drop. During last winter's energy crisis, indefinite layoffs peaked at about 115,000 workers by the end of February. The auto companies began recallini those workers in early spring but still had close to 40,000 idl« when massive layoffs began las fall. j Sunny Side Up exual ittitudes hanging ZALES (EWILIRI Our People Make UsNumbcrOne Our diamond duos are made to be valued dearly.

Dr. Amilai Elzioni cautioned t) al it is difficult to assess the e: tent of such changes. 1e said there are signs that p rls of the sexual avant-garde a e seeking ways to draw a li io between "sexual freedom a id sexual frenzy. 1 ' I'What (his will lead to is not _ cl far," he said at a news con- ft ;ence preceding a symposium 01 human sexuality at the an- ni al meeting of the American A isociation for the Advan- ci ment of Science. ['It seems that a return to erday and a re-celebration of i the traditional family is not c iccivable," he said. "First of al it never existed exactly the we have it in the textbooks. Tl ere was quite a large amount of p r e m a r i t a l sex and ex- Ir marital sex and all kinds of st I going on forever, as far as records show. But what is conceivable is a seirch for new positive defini- tijns," he said.
