New jobless sag seen by top economy men

The unemployment rate in 1982 may climb to 9 percent - the level of the 1974- 75 recession and the deepest economic slump since World War II - according to both Murray Weidenbaum, the chairman of President Reagan's Council of Economic Advisers, and Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldrige.

But Mr. Weidenbaum added that he expects the second half of 1982 to be one of the most vigorous periods of economic growth in recent years.

The current jobless rate is 8 percent.
