PIGEONS AID POLICE CUTTACK, INDIA (REUTERS) — Pigeons are in great demand as police messengers in inaccessible areas of Orissa State in eastern India. Pigeons carried 12,386 police messages in 1969. PROTEST IN SPAIN CORDOBA, SP4IN (REUTERS) T- Thirteen Roman Catholic bishops in southern Spain have denounced social conditions in the region and protested that workers receive insufficient wages. The I^wPWells said the teachers'were paying rent, and that the church facilities were available to any other similar groups that wanted to rent them. No talks Set Superintendent 'Leland said the number of grades taught in the system today will depend on the number of teachers available. He said there were no meetings scheduled between, the teachers' association and board ;o discuss the impasse, which centers on pay for experienced teachers. The Iowa Association of Classroom Teachers joined the Iowa Slate Education Association Thursday in support of the striking Keokuk teachers. Michael Fleming, executive director of the classroom teachers' association, said the "ethical and professional considerations and obligations outweigh the legal obligation of the injunction." Fleming said the Keokuk School Board's refusal" to" accept the settlement proposal of an impartial mediator "will result in low morale, lack of trust, and a deteriorating colleagueship" in the 3,800-pupil school system.

Blackmun to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The letter, addressed to Senators Harold Hughes and Jack Miller, reads, in part: "Judge Blackmun .... is well qualified for the position by his intelligence, judicial craftman- ship and judicial temperament. The problem of conflict of interest inherent in a judge's hearing a case involving a corporation in which he owns stock disturbs us. However, Judge Blackmun has, himself, indicated that in light of current opinion/ it is unfortunate "that he heard three cases involving companies in which he held stock. t'This attitude, the insignificance of the holdings involved . . . inclines us to believe Judge Blackmun's actions are not disqualifying.". MOBILE HOME ZONING VOTED By Jon Van Zoning for an 86-space mobile home court at South Uriion Street and Kenyon Avenue was approved by the Des Moines Plan and Zoning Commission Thursday night. —The mobile home park on the city's south side, will be developed by Economy' Homes, Inc.

MORE LAYOFFS AT Cl FIRM By a Staff Writer CEDAR ' RAPIDS,- IA. Some 1,000 former employes of Collins Radio Co., are receiving unemployment com pensation payments, it was disclosed Thursday. Jhe State Employment... Security Commission ran a temporary office in the plant cafeteria for three days this week to handle a new group of compensation applications and job applications. Collins officials confirmed Thursday that 450 more em- ployes were laid off last week. This means a 3,000- man reduction below the peak of 11,700 reached last October. A Collins spokesman - said most recent layoffs involve production workers. He blamed the layoffs on "business conditions resulting from the continuing general slowdown in the economy." The Collins layoffs are part of a growing unemployment problem. Employment Security !otnmission records show that for each week in March an average of 1,420 persons received unemployment checks in the Five-county area served by the Cedar Rapids office. This compares with an average of 686 for each week in March a year ago". April figures were not available.
