MONDAY. FEBRUARY 5, 1973 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PA6E1 Muskie threatens 'crude IT · - i ,, ·« action in spending fight I WASHINGTON (UPI) - -.Congress may'be forced to use ;"crude means" to win the'es- ;calating battle between President Nixon and. lawmakers over; the setting of federal spending levels, Sen. Edmund Muskie, D-Maine, says'. '., On the other hand, John D. Ehrlichman, Nixon's top domestic adviser, says that if Congress appropriates funds over a presidential veto, the administration will refuse to spend the money it considers wasteful. ^The spokesmen for the two sides in* the fight to control spending made their views clear during interviews yesterday. . l;''Most of the instruments that are available to us as a Congress in trying to check executive authority are-very' crude -- such things as impeachment or the outright refusal to appropriate any money for a particular department," Muskie said. "But we may have to use some of those instruments from time to time." - "But it is not going to advertise what if may use. It's going to be as selective as the President has tried to be in John. D. Ehrlichman We won't spend wastefully "I think what we have to demonstrate to this President is that this is a determined Congress -- determined to reassert' its constitutional authority and responsibility and that it doesn't dismiss some of these crude means," he said. expanding his authority at the- expense of the Congress and the people." Muskie and .Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., were ques- · ·tiqned about the. federal spending hassle on ABC's "Issues and 'Answers." EhrUehmari, interviewed on. 'UPI's "Washington Window," said Nixon's power to im"pound funds is not impaired if he first vetoes an appropriation on the grounds it is too costly and Congress later 'overrides the veto by the required two-thirds majority in both the Senate and House. "The Congress appropriates but the President is charged by law with expending and the laws impose on him the duty to make savings and to spend only at a rate which is not wasteful," he said. Ehrlichman 'insisted the President welcomes congressional participation in determining domestic policy. Infection risk claimed Eye. makeup perils cited by researcher LOS-ANGELES (UPI) -- More than half the eye makeup used by American women may be contaminated by bac- "teria and fungus, can cause infections and in some cases severe loss of vision, a Georgia researcher reports. "When one considers that ^millions of women are using eye cosmetics on a daily or occasional basis, the fact that a significant percentage of the makeup in use may be contaminated with micro-organisms, some capable of causing severe eye infections, then the problem seems of some importance," said Dr. Louis A. Wilson. Wilson, an associate, professor of ophthalmology at the "Medical College of Georgia in Augusta; addressed a science writers seminar sponsored by Research to Prevent Blindness Inc. Wilson said that "to date, 1,031 eye cosmetics (mascara, eye shadow, eye liner, and similar'cosmetics)'from 460 women have been evaluated for bacterial and fungal contamination." He said he found fungi in 10 per cent of them -- 155 samples -- and. half were contaminated by bacteria. · ' · He noted that federal regulations will soon require that ointments frequently applied to the eye region be sterile when dispensed. "Should similar regulations be applied to cosmetics applied to the same area?" he.asked. The major danger appears,to come from scratching the. eyeball with an infected applicator brush, he said. .. ' 'Two cases of cornea! laceration, one bacterial and one fungal, have been seen" at his school that could be blamed on such scratches^ he said. . · . ··' . OPEN DAILY 9 to 9 ioelow Suddenly.
