Reagan says controllers may seek other US jobs

In a move he said was based on ''compassion,'' President Reagan announced that striking air traffic controllers fired in August can seek reemployment by the government, but he still barred them from returning to their old jobs in airport control towers.

The move was seen as an attempt by Mr. Reagan to improve his poor relations with American labor.
