Jobs Without Work Make Men Miserable H . . , CHIC AGO (AP) - The salary Is $150 a week. The hours are 9a.m. to 5 p.m., and the em- puyes do nothing all day. Kince April 1, some 40 em- ijpyes of the Burlington Northern Railroad have been at the iothing job at full pay. Many :igiy they are miserable. I jjm. ££|rhe employes pass their work- ay in a nearly barren room on e second floor of a downtown fice building. Metal chairs are e only furniture, and the work- |rs must get along without ta- ples,wastebaskets, ashtrays or . clock. the feelings of many when she said: "I'd prefer my regular job back." Their regular jobs were as clerks for the railroad in Chicago. But with a merger of four former railroads early in 1970 followed by fiscal belt-tightening and reorganization, the em- ployes found themselves without work-but not without jobs. The company and the union had agreed that no employes would be fired due to the merger unless they received severance pay. A rail spokesman said the cost of releasing the employes with severance pay would be prohibitive. The spokesman added that jobs can, and will, be found for the workers in the Cicero rail yards and that their retraining will begin soon. On April 1, there were 61 clerks, mostly in their 20s, sitting idle. But the company transferred 21 to the yards in Cicero. Of the rest, eight to ten are occasionally asked to fill in for sick or vacationing workers.

Parole Board reviews possible parole today for former Texas wheeler-dealer Bille Sol Air Force Warns Pilots Alamo City Skies Dangerous SAN ANTONIO (AP)-An Air Force officlalhas warned pilots in the San Antonio area to be on guard against an- increasing number of near-collisions in the air here. CoL Hoyt S. Vandeberg Jr., commander of the 3510th Flying Training Wing at Randolph Air Force base, said the problem has become Randolph's "number one priority project." Randolph fliers reported 27- near collisions in 1970, Vandenberg said, and five more during the first three months of this year. "With an average of almost 3,500 daily movements in and out of just the major airdromes in the San Antonio area," he said, "it becomes the responsibility of every pilot to be alert to the possibility of a mid-air collision." He called on aircraft owners and pilots to "join us in an in- tensified educational effort. The importance of recognizing the high mid-air collision potential in the Randolph vicinity cannot be overemphasized." Notices of the hazards have be en sent to all pilots in the San Antonio area, Vandenberg said. One reason the Pentagon cited for closing Perrin Air Force Base by June 30 was a severe air space limitation problem. Officials attributed it to a heavy volume of civilian air traffic over Perrin, located between Denison and Sherman, Tex. A Federal Aviation Agency spokesman said he was aware of some near •collisions at San Antonio but no statistics were available here. The area north of Randolph is particularly dangerous since it involves much air traffic from both Randolph and San Antonio International Airport, he said.

EDWARES AIR FORCE BASE,Calif. (AP) - Air Force investigators are continuing their examination of the wreckage of anF 111 to determine why the swing-wing fighter-bomber crashed and why its ejection system failed to save the two crewmen. I The jet crashed in the desert Saturday the 18th Fill to go down in 4% years. The failure of the plane's ejection pod parachute resulted in the death of the two Air Force officers on board. The parachute mechanism is supposed to open automatically, but an Air Force spokesman said the parachute didnt begin to open until just before the pod hit the ground. Maj. James Hurt, 34, of Indianapolis, Ind., the plane's commander, and Maj. Robert J. Furman, 31, of New York City, were found inside the ejection capsule 100 yards from the plane wreckage 12 miles south of Death Valley National Monument while on a flight test. It was the second time two Air Force pilots have died after usingthe capsule mechanism to eject from the Fill, The other incident occurred near Mandeville, La,, last January. An Air Force official said the re are no plans to ground the Fill to check the ejection system. About 230 of the ,$9 million planes were grounded in 1969 when a structural flaw was found in_the plane's wing. But the aircfaff7 built by General Dynamics Corp. of Fort Worth, Tex., was pronounced structurally sound in July 1970 after being modified. An Edwards spokesman said more details of the crash may be disclosed later this week. UNITED ROOFING GO. FREE ESTIMATES WHITE-SNOWCAPS Keeps your gravel on the roof, not in the grass.

Central and South America Into the United States. Judge Sarah Hughes, the federal jurist hearing the case, called lawyers into her office for a conference shortly after Robertson refused to come to court. At one point, last week, Robertson rushed off the witness stand and refused to testify further, Robertson, 48, formerly was head of a Dallas aviation concern. Earlier In the trial, Dr. Mary L. Cannon, a Dallas psychiatrist, testified about an examination she made of Robertson on the court's order. She said that at that time Robertson was not delusional although he had been in Beverly Hills Hospital with a nervous breakdown in 1962. The diagnosis at that time was schizophrenia. "I was baffled because when I examined him, I could find no evidence at all in my examination of schizophrenia," Dr. Cannon said. The doctor also testified that some years earlier, Robertson had been on the drug, preludin', an amphetamine called "speed" or "goof balls." She described his present mental condition as ."mild depressed." The doctor said he has average intelligence and there "was no evidence of hallucinations or delusions." She said at the end of the meeting he asked her if she considered him insane. She did not say how she replied. HURRY-GIVE AWAY PRICES! EVERYTHING MUST GO!!!
