(AP) — A U.N. committee on colonialism, pushed Communist nations, has decided that Puerto Rico has a right to independence from the United States. Over U.S. charges of interference in its domestic affairs, the Special Committee on Colonialism voted 12-0 Monday to recognize "the inalienable right of the people of Puerto Rico to self- determination and independence." Ten«nations on the 22-member group abstained. The committee asked a working group to study how to extend to Puerto Rico the provisions of the U.N. Declaration Against Colonialism.

They had more applause for Cuban Ambassador Ricardo Alarcoh, who has made a personal campaign out of branding the United States a colonial power occupying the Caribbean island. "The final stretch in the road of independence has begun," declared Juan Mari- Bras, a leader of the Puerto Rican independence movement. Marl-Bras said the action clearly classified Puerto Rico as a colony. But a U.S. spokesman said the wording of the resolution was ambiguous. He stressed that the matter was being referred to a working group and that no report was asked until 1973. I n Washington, State Department officials said tfle decison was "an insult to the people of Puerto Rico, who have chosen to live in a democracy under a constitution of their own choosing in free association with the United States." China and the Soviet Union gave the Cuban ambassador support in the debate. Chang Yung-kuan, the Chinese delegate, said Puerto Rico "is, in fact, a colony of the United States and the Puerto Rican people's struggle for national independence is a just one ..." The action applies only to the committee and not to the United Nations as a whole. A year ago Alarcon tried to bring the Puerto Rican question before the 132-natioa General Assembly, but failed by a wide margin to get the necessary vote to put it en the agenda.

Elliott said today that the second installment on city real estate and personal property taxes are due Thursday, but should be paid directly to the county treasurer's office in Edwardsville.

"It keeps food on my table," he explained With a Ph.D in literature from the University of Turin in Italy and another in Spanish from Florida Stale University, Lena said ha applied to 1,300 American and Canadian universities during the past two years for a teaching job — and didn't get a single offer. "They all sent back very, very kind letters, all telling me that because of cuts in their budget they had no job forme," Lena said. Lena showed up in his work coveralls and a straw hat Monday at a news conference in a local Baptist church called by Sen. Ed Gurney, R- Fla. Gurney summoned reporters to announce a federal program to find jobs as congressional aides for out- of-work senior citizens. After Gurney finished his announcement, Lena rose from his seat and described his educational background. "It has been impossible for me to find a job," he sa;d. "Is there anything in your program for people like me?" Gurney, appearing stunned, first replied, "I'm not sure the program was designed for anyone with problems such as yours." However, after consulting with an official of the Jobs for Older Americans program, he told Lena there might be a spot for him. Lena studied and taughi languages in Italy, Uruguay and Sweden before coming to America in 1967 to work on a doctorate at Florida State. Corbett's trial is delayed until after election SPRING FIELD — Sangamon County Circuit Judge J. Waldo Ackerman today granted a request from State Rep.

After listening to objections from Assistant State's Attorney Arthur Inman, Judge Crime rate up sng JL rr 1 in Illinois WASHINGTON (AP) Crime in Illinois increase J only slightly in 1971, well below the national increase of 7 per cent, the FBI reported Tuesday. An estimated 274,320 crimes were committed in Illino's lust year compared with 260,588 in 1970. More than two-thirds of :hc j Illinois crimes occurred in Chicago and environs, an area which encompasses the counties of Cook. Du Page, Kant 1 , Luke, Mcllenry und Will. The crime index per JUU.IW population wa.s 2,450.? in 197!, compared with 2,347.1 in 1970. Ankerman moved Corbett's trial from the scheduled Sept. 5 date to Nov. 13 — after Corbett's race for election to the state senate. Ackerman earlier had said he would probably move the date but insisted on Corbett being present and personally asking for the change in his trial "In view of the fact that this is important to you personally," Ackerman told Corbett, "1 wanted you to be here and. make the decision." Ackerman explained that ho felt the delay coulcl hurt Corbett politically and the judge did not want to be responsible for hurting him unfairly. Inman said the right of the public to know whether the people do have enougii evidence to convict Corbett should outweigh any unfairness which an earlier trial would bring to Corbett. Robert H e c k e n k a m p . Corbett's attorney, accused Inman of manuevering 'he trial so that it would be held before Corbett's election for slate senator. Inman denied the charge. Corbett is charged with allegedly violating ihe state purchasing act in the selling of cars from a family auto agency to Secretary of State Paul Powell wh^le Corbett served as a legislator.

Ford, GM denied car price hikes WASHINGTON (AP) - The Price Commission today denied requests by Ford and General Motors for price increases on their 1973 models. Commissioner Chairman C. Jackson Grayson Jr. said the request of the two giant automakers was being denied because the commission has determined that the increases could push the profit margins of the two firms beyond permissible limits. The decision meant that consumers could expect to avoid a price hike on GM and Ford ears at least until November. Grayson said that the two companies may resubmit requests after profit figures are in for the second quarter of their fiscal year. Ford, in a request revised this week, had asked for a $59 or 1.79 per cent increase.
