T h e Democratic County Committee did not vote to go , along with the Republican committee in setting up ' ' c o m m o n ' ' polling places.! which means the use of one set of hooks and one set of officials.

Cambodia (AP) -- The Cambodian military command today reported .'outbreaks of fighting north and southeast of the capital. Government troops battled rebels around Po Sangh village, a suburb of Phnom Penh, eight miles southeast of the capital. An estimated 2,000 Khmer Rouge forces have overrun six government outposts in the area in the past month. North of Phnom Penh, its were up 39 per cent over 1973's first quarter at $708 million. Exxon said the figure would have been higher if it hadn't created a special reserve to protect against possible future tax bills. It wouldn't s a y how big the reserve actually was, but some estimates put it at about $400 million. Texaco, the second biggest oil company, said its profits were up 123 per cent at $589.4 million -- after creation of a $143 million reserve against possible meet stiff rebel Kruos village. 11 - -- - - government forces continued to ·fire around ...,,-. _- miles from the capital along vital Route 5. Intelligence sources reported . an estimated 1.500 Khmer Rouge troops moving into the area from rebel-held Oudong 12 miles to the north. Their apparent aim was to attack Prek Phneou and its vital fuel depot nearby, sources said. About 700 government soldiers, backed by armored units, were sent to head off the insurgents, the sources said. · Military sources reported . continued fighting north and east of the besieged Longvek .' maintenance camp and training center. About 2,500 men are trapped inside the camp and the gov- · eminent has said it cannot evacuate them. : ' Police reported that an apparent assassination attempt on Cambodian Prime Minister Long Boret on Friday left nine persons dead and 32 injured. Boret left a wedding reception ; in the capital five minutes be~ fore a grenade was tossed into · the crowd, police said higher crude oil prices. Gulf said its profits were up 76 per cent over 1973, Standard of California 91 per cent and Shell 52 per cent. ROLL-BACK PROPOSAL Before midweek, the House Commerce Committee had approved a proposal to roll back the price of 80 per cent of domestically produced crude oil and impose stiffer price regulations on imported oil. The measure was proposed by Rep. Bob Eckhart, a Texas Democrat who said he was partly inspired by the first- quarter profit figures. Some oil men contended the gains reflected comparisons with 1973 figures that were lower than they should have been. Experts inside and outside the oil industry noted the figures reflected not only actual profits on sales but the simple fact that oil in company inventories is worth more now than it was a year ago. A barrel of oil which might have cost $3.40 in March 1973 cost more than $6 this past March. Accounting methods used by the oil companies translate this higher value into profit. Chairman H.J. Haynes of Standard of California said his company would have shown virtually ho gains over 1973 without such inventory profits. Before oii prices began climbing, the industry had argued that higher profits were and Elm Springs. Four outlying townships wil vote at the County Courthouse in Fnyettevile.

Weed s a i d Friday night he was working on a plan involving the money, which has been put in escrow by t h e Hearst Corp. The firm offered $4 million if Miss Hearst was safely released to her parents by May 3. "One of the things I have been doing in the l a s t eight days is to try to get together a specific proposal for this $4 million, to throw this thing out and just let everyone understand what the SLA is throwing away in return for Patty." he said in an interview with KO- TV. Weed was engaged to Miss Hearst when she was dragged f r o m a Berkeley apartment :hey shared on Feb. 4. The SLA, a terrorist group, claimed responsibility for abducting her.

Riley Said Not Limiting Funds Given Campaign LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Mrs Bob Riley said Friday her hus band was limiting financla contributions to his gubernato rial campaign to $99, but Rl ley's administrative aide late said Mrs.'Riley was incorrect. Linda Newkirk, the aide called a reporter after Mrs. Rl ley had made her remarks anc said no limit was needed "be cause we're not appealing t the big money people." Mrs. Newkirk said the con fusion apparently stemmed from the fact that when a con tribuior donates $99 to the Ri ley campaign he is awarded a decal. Mrs. Riley had made the comment during an interview when she was discussing the type of campaign her husband would conduct. She said her. husband wouli open his campaign financing books to the public. Mrs. New kirk said this was correct. Saying her husband wantec to run a modestly-financed campaign, Mrs. Hiley added "When someone receives large contributions, you obviously are involved with the contributions pretty heavily." David H. Pryor, one of Ri ley's opponents, has said he would limit his campaign contributions to $1,000 each. For mer Gov. Orval E.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- Sweden and the United States will exchange ambassadors next month, thawing a period of frosty diplomatic relations that began when Premier Olaf Palme severely criticized the American bombing of North Vietnam. Count Wilhelm Wachlmeister, newly appointed Swedish ambassador to the United States will be installed May 6, a Foreign Ministry spokesman announced Friday. The position has been vacant since February 1973. The U.S. Embassy announced that Robert Strausz-Hupe, the new American ambassador to Sweden, would arrive in Stockholm May. during the last week of His predecessor, Jerome Holland, left in August 1972 to take up a post at the New York Stock Exchange.

GM's nur slmro earnlijgs limned in at 41 cents, worst performance since 1948, , But the company's {op two executives for'ecasl the; firm would make a substantial, comeback in the not-tc-dlstnt future. ' '· /; v"As the economy strengthens In the months ahead and consumer confidence returns i so will car buyers." said Chairman nichard .C, Gerstehberg and President Edward N. Cole. "Welcome strengthening of the market camq too late to improve first quarter results." QUARTERLY EARNINGS GM's quarterly earnings represented the second consecutive drop from year-earlier levels, coming after the firm posted record sales and profits for tn* first nine months of 1973. GM's latest earnings compare to $817 million, or $2.84 a share, In the first quarter of 1973. DUrlng last year's filial quarter. GM reported a 22 per cent decline in profits. '. The automaker's 1973 profits of $2.4 billion were the second largest of any U.S. corporation, trailing only Exxon Corp. Gerstenberg and Cole attributed the severe earnings decline to "unremitting increases in costs" and a sharp slump in large car sales. · ' ".. . the cost of material, services and labor climbed to historically high levels, and there is every indication that these costs will continue to escalate in' the months ahead," they said. COSTS REDUCED Costs- were reduced through production cutbacks and layoffs of thousands of employes. However, they said "costs could not be reduced or eliminated as rapidly as volume fell." So far GM has escaped a labor problem that is plaguing Ford: Refusal of overtime by ^yo^kers under a newly won op:ion on voluntary overtime negotiated last year b y the United Auto Workers Union. The action has cost Ford mil- ions of dollars in potential sales as a result of weekend lalts in production. Ford officials say the firm has lost the production of 9.000 vehicles since the p.act took effect Feb 3 and an estimated.$4.million in overtime has gone begging. · GM officials, and those at -nrysler, say they haven't been affected because of different production schedules.
