"Nostalgic, huh?" Today In Washington WASHINGTON (AP) — A national commission has recommended against a new government order that would allow welfare applicants to sign a simple declaration of need instead of undergoing a lengthy investigation. "In our judgment it is premature to impose such a mandate, despite the mounting criticism of the eligibility determination process," the commission said in a report Tuesday. Called the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations^ the panel counts among its members Vice President­ elect Spiro T. Agnew. Object of its criticism is a new order issued in the past month by the Health, Education and Welfare Department which would substitute a declaration of need for what some feel is the degrading investigatory process welfare applicants must now undergo. The commission said states should be left free to experiment with, their own eligibility systems. The substitution becomes effective in June unless rescinded by the incoming administration.

(AP) — Ed Clinch received a coconut for a Christmas present Wednesday from an anonymous donor. He expected it. It was the 21st consecutive year a surprise visitor made the delivery. Sheriff Willard M. Koeppel of Peoria County delivered it to Clinch, 52, a park district foreman, at his home and remained mum as to who recruited him for the errand. Previous deliveries have been mace by the mayor of Peoria, the county coroner, the FBI, a Marine Corps recruiter, a policeman and a newspaper reporter. The coconuts have come by helicopter, parachute jumper, ambulance, police car and fire truck. "My children have been raised with this thing," Clinch said. "At Christmas they look forward to the coconut more than Santa Claus." Clinch thinks the coconuts may have some connection with his World War n Air Force service in the Pacific but the trail ends there. tended guard drills or otherwise quickly after the Dec. 8 blast at Pahute Mesa. was called on to perform as a guardsman."

"Many hairstyles of the younger set obstruct both forward and lateral vision," says Philip C. Wallwork, ALA safety director. "A regulation requiring hairnets for the hairy set may prove as sensible as the regulations requiring helmets for motorcyclists." The problem could also be solved by mandatory haircuts, or perhaps even a hairstyle with peepholes. But that, he thinks, may be too drastic a step. NEWS BRIEF STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — First Lt.

IAP ) — To avoid further risk, authorities today closed a sister span to the Anclote River bridge that collapsed Tuesday, killing one person and injuring five. The Florida Highway Patrol, reporting that all persons in volved in the collapse were accounted for, said the decision to close U. S. 19 south of Tarpon Springs to all traffic was precautionary in nature. "With the collapse of the oth- ei bridge, traffic had become extremely heavy on this one and it was too much for it to bear," a patrol spokesman said. By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) — When Julie Nixon and David Eisenhower said they wanted their wedding Sunday to be a private affair, they really meant it. The guest-list for the marriage of the daughter of the President-elect to the grandson of the former president is still a secret—although it has been learned there are few political i or public figures included. Information about Julie's wedding gown, her attendants' dresses, the single-ring ceremony at Marble Collegiate Church an dthe reception at the Plaza Hotel will not be released until the last minute. And there will be no news coverage allowed either of the cere- money or the reception. | "Julie said she did not want , anyone watching that wedding j who was not a personal friend or someone she knows," Mrs. Gerry Van der Heuvcl, Julio's ! mother's press aide, said Thursday. Mrs. Van der Heuvel did give out a few tidbits—including the fact that the ceremony will be broadcast, via closed circuit television, to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower who is in Walter Reed Army Hospital recuperating from a series of heart attacks. She also said that David's sister Barbara Anne, who war, married Nov. 16, will be a bridesmaid and her husband, Fernando Echavarrha -Uribe of Bogota, Colombia, will be an usher. Julie was one of Barbara Anne's attendants. Asked about parties for the bride, Mrs. Van de Heuvel said there would be a luncheon given for Julie Friday at the Cosmopolitan Club by Susan Harvin of Houston, Tex., who will be B bridesmaid. The rehearsal will be Saturday afternoon, by which time the church will be decorated with Christmas greenery and red and white poinsettias the Nixons requested for the platform at the head of the aisle. The rehearsal dinner, given by David's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Eisenhower, will be Saturday night at a Manhattan restaurant.
