It also shows an increasing tendency for employes to balk at relocation because of their spouse's careers, Transfers could slow more, said J.,1.

Kurbegovic Won't Talk To Police LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A man accused of being the "al phabet bomber" refuses to tall with police, just as he has foi years with other people whi thought he was a mute. His landlady, however, sail h e ' h a d talked frequently wit! her and was articulate, and po HcÂ« said other persons also hai heard htm speak. Muharem K u r b a g o v i c ' double life came to light o Wednesday as authorities pre pared to charge him with mur der in an Aug. 6 bombing whic killed three persons at Los An geles International Airport. The 31-year-old Yugoslavia immigrant was arrested Tue day night, and police said the are convinced he is the foreign accented man who claimed re sponsibility for the airpo bombing in telephone calls an tape recordings and threatene a wave of bombings in publ places. They said he apparently acted out of.vengeance against police because he was arrested once for lewd conduct and because of it was refused permission by the Police Commission to run f. dance hall. In his .tapes, the "alphabet bomber'.' demanded that .immigration and .sex . law* bÂ« rÂ£ pealed. " Â·'Â· .-'Â·: The muteness Kurbegovie exhibited for years among some people puzzled police. They said he refused to answer their questions and seemed to go into trances. Â· : But police said he showed no signs of muteness whÂ«n he defended himself in court in 1971 against the lewd conduct charge,, which was dismissed. At" RPM Industries, where Kurbegovic was a blueprint en gineer for two years, workers said they had never known him to speak. Immigration authorities also regarded him as a mute.- - . Tile, "alphabet Â· bomber' was so named because he said he was 'going to plant bombs in location* to spell out, the name ol an organization he called "Aliens of America." Police said they found "al most a truckload of explosives' in his Hollywood apartment. Thorne said that throughout e moving industry he hears umors of declining business. Van line rates have risen 15 er cent in the last year, boost- g average per-move cost tor tlas corporate customers from ,318 to $1,494. Cost-conscious firms have re- ponded by slicing "moving ex- as" such as -reimbursement motels, house hunting arid ransportation. Cuts averaged 2.4 per cent, from $1,932 in 972 to $1,500; Thorne said in an iterview on Wednesday. He said 37 per cent of the ompanies polled had' one or more employes refuse transfer 1973. One reason is that wives are aking their careers more se 'ously. Thorne found. Thorne said he has conducted IB survey for 'the past seven ears but hadn't seen the need i ask about the reluctance o; 'ives to move until a year ago, :e said this year he found thai per cent of the companies esponding had problems talk ng wives into moving because f their own jobs. "Let's face it, a move--any move--is going to be tough fo a family . . . and wives whi vant to hold onto their jobs jus ncrease the problem," Thorn said. "It's more than a little scary Our business generally follow he general, economy by a year There was'-.a recession in 196 and we felt it-bad in 1965^ we're really worried ove 1975." .. .

He said the a tual number of shipments July dipped July 1973. in 6 per cent from Farmers To Get S500 Million bi 'Disaster'Subsidies WASHINGTON (AP) - luch rain last spring Too and ought this summer will mean i estimated $500 million in overnment subsidies.to strick- n farmers under a natural dis- sfer clause put into new farm Â·gislalion by Congress Last ear. The Agriculture Department aid on Wednesday that farm- rs who produce wheat, corn, orghum, barley or upland colon may be eligible for the pay- icnts to "recover some of heir losses' from weather this ear. If the $500 million estimate is orrcct, it would boost farm ubsidies this calendar year to t least $800 million, a spokes- nan said. Earlier, the USDA ad expected total payments, ncluding a lower level ot dis- ster subsidies, to be less than 600 million. However, the 1974 farm sub- idy total will be the smallest ince 1360 when $702 million vas paid. The payments :limbed to a record ot nearly $4 billion in 1972 and then dropped to $2.6 billion last year as government acreage curbs were relaxed and commodity prices' soared. The new farm legislation went into effect with 1974 crops and uses a "target price" method of computing regular payments to farmers when cash market prices fall below the target levels. But since commodity prices are above the target levels, no regular payments will be made to farmers for 1974 production of wheat, feed grains and cot ton;-The disaster payments are authorized separately in the law to help compensate farm for drought cau,ses. losses from and other floods natura Four Area Cigarette Machines Vandalized Cigarette machines were the mly things disturbed in the overnight burglaries of four Tayetteville area service sta jons.
