It lasts an hour and covers the current and potential shape of the post-Vietnam U.S. military establishment. The program, scheduled for last June, then pre-empted, updated and rescheduled, doesn t touch on Congress and Pentagon thinking about whatever military threat China may pose in future years. It instead concentrates on the potential threat of Russia, what the United Stales hss or wil! have to meet it, and how, and the running debates over the ever-rising cost of the U.S. military machine. Despite the show's China omission, "Peace and the Pentagon" is well worth the viewing time, particularly because it contains rarely seen film of Soviet armor, missile and naval power--including shots of one of Russia's new helicopter carriers now in the Mediterranean. Such rootage adds strong, important visual impact and puts the show several notches above television's usual whither-the- military essays, which often ieem exercises in unreality. I have reference to those epics which mostly roll oul eading poabahs to defend the efense budget of $12 trillion, len bring on leading critics to ay it's worth but $10. trillion, ien let both sides: debate the ifference with vigor . as -the riewer seeks out "Highway Parol." This show doesn't escape that rap, particularly in one segment in which Paul Warnke, a )efense Department chieftain n the Lyndon B.

(AP) Georgia's manufacturing em ployment has more than dou .bled the national average dur Ing the last decade but the state still ranks lowest among Southeastern states, according to the Bureau of Labor Statis tics. Brunswick A. Bagdon, assist ant regional director of tin BLS, reported the state's rat of increase in the period from 1953 to 1973 was 36.2 per .cent compared with the national av erage of 16.6 per cent. However, all eight states in the Southeastern region wer among the top 15 leading indus trial states. Georgia ranked 14th in manu factoring employment in 197 with 494,300 workers. Bagdon said the significan development is that the South east is becoming industrially important. He pointed to the re gion's population boom as factor in opening new market and attracting new manufac turers. Among Southeastern stales Florida had the highest per centage increase in manufac turing jobs with 63 per cent Following in order were Mis sissippi 62.4 per cent, Kentuck 55.9 per cent. Tennessee 51. per cent, North Carolina 42. per cent, Alabama 40 per cen and South Carolina 39.3 pe cent. The'greatest increase in th 29 leading industrial states sur veyed occurred in Arkansas where employment increase 68.1 per cent.

'Such were/the developments lat - prompted a recurring ne among the economists who : advised President Ford 'hursday to seek a looser mbon- y supply. But the President, for all his power.rcan only persuade when t-comes to regulating the mon- y supply. That chore is en- rusted to the Federal Reserve ioard,. known as the Fed.

'Tight money means lower de m and for goods and a down ward pull on rising prices. · The Fed has three tools for tightening the money supply. ' One-is to increase the amoun of money banks must hold reserve to back up their depositors'^ "accounts. Currently, the Fed, requires the nation's biggest banks ; to,maintain reserves to 18. per cent of customers' checking a c c o u n t balances. That's up-by half a percentage point since November 1972. The second tool is the discount rate,,or the interest the Fed charges^member, banks to borrow 'money.
