'Hre other three nominated pictures were "The Conversation," "Lenny" and "The Towering Inferno." Jobs Story Told by Labor Chief WASHINGTON (UPI) Labor Secretary John T. Dunlop says public service jobs created to combat unemployment are going disproportionately to the better educated workers. In a recent conversation with several reporters, Dunlop also commented that the public service program provides jobs in a part of the economy little affected by unemployment — the civil service. AFL-C10 President George Meany insisted after a look at March unemployment statistics that "the job-creating bills now pending in Congress must be passed immediately despite any implied threat of a presidential veto." But Dunlop suggested that spending more money on public service job may be solving the wrong unemployment problem. Unemployment in government "is already relatively low," he said In March unemployment among government workers was 3.9 per cent while it was 11.4 per cent in manufacturing, 18.1 per cent in construction. Some cities, Dunlop, said have been laying off civil servants, then rehiring them using federal funds for public service jobs. Dunlop said the jobs created in the program "were filled disproportionately by more educated members of the unemployed population " UPI later checked Labor Department data and found that during July througn December, 1974, 27.5 per cent of workers holding public service jobs had education beyond the 12th grade level. Yet this portion of the population accounts for only 17.4 per cent of the national unemployment's ranks. At the other end of the scale, only 78 per cent of the workers in public service jobs, financed by federal funds, completed the 8th grade or quit school sooner. Yet these early school dropouts accounted for 14.5 per cent of the total unemployed. Another group of school dropouts, those with education levels of at least 9th, 10th, and llth grades, account for 32.7 per cent of the total unemployed but only 19.2 per cent of the public service jobs. Workers who completed the 12th grade accounted for 45.5 per cent of the public service jobs but only 35.7 per cent of the total iinemployment., families left homeless in the Warren County area near Vicksburg. Maher said it would take at least the rest of the week to get 200 trailers located in the four-county flooded area north of Vicksburg. The Army Corps of p;ngineers estimated that about 370,000 acres of land are covered in Issaquena, Sharkey, Yazoo and Warren counties. The corps Jacobsen Ups the Figure On Alleged Bribe Money WASHINGTON (UPI) - Jake Jacobsen, who testified initially that he paid $10,000 in bribery money in 1971 to then Treasury Secretary John B. Connally, said under cross - examination the total figure might even have gone as high as $15,000. Jacobsen, the chief prosecution witness in the Connally bribery trial, acknowledged under cross examination by defense attorney Edward Bennett Williams Monday that he had once told the prosecutors about, three $5,000 payoffs to Connally. But the former Associated Milk Producers lawyer said he did not testify to the third payment because he did not remember the details. The trail recessed Monday before Williams explained why he — and not the prosecution — raised this aspect of the case. It was thought that Williams could be trying to show that Jacobsen's memory was hazy on the matter, thus damaging the witness' credibility with the jury. Prison Uprising Leader Gives Views on Action NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) — corrections officials. The leader of 11 prisoners who The hostages wore released held 12 hostages in a Tennessee unharmed about 5:00 p.m. after State Prison counseling office for Corrections Commissioner Her- eight hours Monday said the man Yeatman agreed to set up a group was just trying to get committee, including inmate attention to air their grievan- members, to investigate a list of ces. 12 grievances. "We weren't trying to take predicted that total would jump to nearly 600,000 acres by the time the Mississippi River reaches its anticipated crest of 50.6 feet at Vicksburg Saturday. "We estimate that if the water reaches where it did in 1973, some 1,400 homes will be affected," state Red Cross Director Eugene Jones said. The foot of snow at Arizona's Hawley Lake did not affect many persons because the lake is a summer recreation area. However, the National Weather Service warned of possible frost during the night in some fruit growing areas of the state, which could cause losses to agricultural interests. The weather service said a severe blizzard was expected to continue today in Montana and Wyoming, where heavy snows fell Monday. Six inches or more of snow was expected to fall in Montana east of the Continental Divide, complicated by winds of up to 50 miles per hour. A tornado near Pep, Tex., Monday knocked over farm buildings and ripped the roof of a local church. At Lubbock, Tex., winds gusted to 60 m.p.h. and several funnel clouds were sighted by residents. Funnel clouds also were reported near Canyon, Tex., but there were no reports of damage or injuries. The Texas storms were touched off by a blustery cold front that entered the western part of the state. A freeze warning was issued for southwest Texas. Fiery Rail Accident Confirmed MOSCOW (UPI) - A Lithuanian newspaper reaching Moscow today confirmed reports of a fiery rail crash which local sources .said may have killed hundreds of commuters. The regional Communist party newspaper Tiesa Sunday gave no details but carried a black- bordered message offering sympathy to relatives of those who died "tragically" and announcing an investigation. Lithuanian sources said the packed commuter train—traveling from the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, about 600 miles northwest of Moscow, to nearby Kaunas—ran into a military transport train carrying gasoline. Americans Showing Skepticism On the Success of the Tax Cut By RICHARD HUGHES UPI Business Writer A survey shows many Americans are skeptical over how successful the tax cut will be in fighting the recession. The quarterly report on consumer confidence by the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center said 23 per cent of the persons interviewed think the tax cut is a bad idea and 55 per cent think it will not help end the recession. "The image was still largely one of confusion and inaction, with many people worried that the government would ... take back from the consumers whatever they might receive in tax reductions," the survey said. Director Jay Schmiedeskamp and George Katona, founder of the widely watched survey of consumer attitudes, said Americans remain greatly worried about the prospects for business conditions and unemployment, while showing some optimism about lower prices and interest rates. The $22.4 billion rebate on 1974 taxes and reduction on 1975 taxes could have a "substantial, favorable impact simply because people have been impatient for the government to take some action on the economy," the CORAL THEATRE American Fork Show 7:30 p.m. "The Towering Inferno" over the prison," Dock Walker told a news conference called at the prisoners' request.
