And analysts say more increases are expected as long as inflation continues, bringing the under $3,000 automobile ever closer to extinction. _ GM announced on triday the increase would take effect when 1975 models go on sale m September. The announcement said 1975 model car and truck stickers will carry an average 9 6 per cent increase -- about $480 _ on the base price, including S130 for emission control equipment. Tacked on to that will be a $20 boost in snipping charges. ' The company would not give a by-model breakdown on the increases, but its least expensive model, the subcompact Chevrolet Vega, would sell for $2,8.00 without options if it carries the average increase. With options, state and federal taxes and dealer preparation charges, most Vega buyers could easily pay more than $3,000. The new model increase compares with an average $73 boost GM put through on its 1974 models last September.

Munson said m his petition and brief that the court had no jurisdiction in the case. Cooper is a Marxist who until recently taught history at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He filed .suit against Munson in May, saying :he was in danger of being prosecuted under the state's criminal laws concerning communism'and tha advocacy of revolution. The suit challenged the laws and asked Judge G. Thomas Eisele of U.S. District Court for a declaratory judgment ruling them unconstitutional. Such suits can be heard in federal court only if the plan- tiff, in this case Cooper, finds himself in danger of being prosecuted under the laws that are challenged. Munson- said that Cooper was in no immediate danger of being prosecuted under the state's anti-communist laws, but Cooper contended Munson himself had threatened lira with prosecution. Eisele ruled Aug. 2 that Cooper was in danger of prosecution under the challenged statutes and he agreed to hear the case.; Obituary union spokesman said.

No..reason was given for the adjournment, but evidently the ministers cancelled the session when a key report failed to arrive from Cyprus. A joint commission of British, Greek; Turkish and United Nations officers on Cyprus had agreed fo terms on Thursday on demarcation lines between Greek and Turkish forces. But their report did not reach Geneva in time to be taken up on Friday. Greek sources in Geneva said the Greek delegation still had reservations about some aspects of the cease-fire report. In addition, they said, Greece is not happy with the decision to draw the line according to on Aug. 9.

"As clearly stated in the U.N. Charter and the world declaration of human rights, we believe the peoples of world concur in their wish to secure conditions in which human dignity is respected, t h e freedom of thought preserved, and the freedom of political activity assured," their petition said. It said acting upon this belief, they requested Park to assure opposition leader Kim Dae-jung complete freedom of movement including the freedom to go abroad, and to release other prisoners, including dissident poet Kim Chi-ha. The petition was handed to Foreign Minister Kim Dong-jo, who said he would convey it to Park. Kim Dae-jung was kidnaped in Tokyo and returned to Korea a year ago. He has since been living in semiseclusion at his Seoul home. He has not been allowed to travel to Japan to testify on his abduction or to the United States to take up a fellowship at Harvard University. He was put on trial in June in connection with alleged election law violations in 1967 and 1971. IMBSLlira MRS.

Chinese Papers Expect Continued Open Policy HONG KONG (AP) - Three newspapers said today that the Ford administration is expected to continue the policy of opening relations with China. They expressed confidence that former President Richard Nixon's resignation will not mean a change in US .policy toward China. The newspapers - Ta Kung Pao -- often accurately reflect Peking's thinking. All pointed to President Ford's retention of Henry Kissinger as secretary of state and to bipartisan support in Congress for Nixon's China position as evidence the policies will continue. So far, the only resignation news reaching the Chinese people through Peking's official Hsinhua news agency was a brief item citing "a report from Washington. In the Soviet Union, Nixon's resignation was given extensive coverage in the government third of its front page to Nixon's resignation speech, biographical material on Ford and his statement on Thursday and the chronology of events leading to the resignation. Reports in the Soviet media stressed statements by Ford indicating he would continue the policies of U.S.-Soviet detente pursued by Nixon.
