ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS. MON., JAN. 8, 1973 Page 3 Congress Preparing Effort To Regain Budget Control WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress is preparing to begin its organized effort to get better control of the budgetr-and in the process to regain some of the power which, its members contend, has slipped over the years to the White House. The 16 House members of a special committee created by the last Congress to devise effective legislative budget machinery have set their first meeting for Wednesday, Rep. Al Ullman, D-Ore., said. Ullman is author of the provision creating the committee, enacted when Congress turned down President Nixon's request for sweeping authority to cut back funds the legislators had already authorized. Ullman said he will propose establishment of permanent budget committees in both House and Senate, composed of senior members of the two taxing and spending committees in each body. These committees would be charged, he said; with examining the president's spending proposals and developing, within 60 days, a congressional budget that would set limits on all appropriations. The regular congressional committees then would take over and produce the money bills for the various government activities. At the end of the appropriating process, the budget committees would make a final review, recommending cutbacks and adjustments or, if the state of the economy required it, modifying the original budget ceiling. Ullman acknowledged, in an interview, that the last attempt to establish an effective con- Oath of Office Democrat Dick Clark, 43, of Marion, was sworn in Wednesday noon as Iowa's 29th U.S. Senator. He is shown above, in a re-enactment of the ceremony, receiving the oath of office from Vice President Spiro Agnew. Harold Hughes, Iowa's senior Senator, hosted a reception for Clark and his family later in the day. gressional budget, in the 1940s, failed. But, he said: "This year, I think we can do it. We have a lot of support both in Congress and in the country. Members are finally facing up to the realization that we have to provide a mechanism for responsibility. . ." Ullman said he hopes the full special committee, including the 16 Senate members, can meet by the end of the week and begin work on its recommendations. It has all year to develop them, but a preliminary report is due Feb. 15. Meanwhile, Rep. Henry S. Reuss, D-Wis., another member of the committee, circulated a draft of a proposal somewhat similar to Ullman's. Reuss, however, would bring the Joint Economic Committee, which studies the over-all economic condition of the country, into the budget-making process, and would call for recommendations on taxation as well as spending. The World of o Glance Laird: Bombing Allowed Total Troop Withdrawal Iowa's Safest Israeli Raid DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)The Iowa Highway Patrol says the weekend just ended may be the safest in recent months on Iowa streets and highways. No traffic fatalities were reported from Friday evening through midnight Sunday. U.S. Cotton WASHINGTON (AP; Touring trade teams say foreign demand for U.S. cotton appears to be picking up as the result of a larger crop in 1972 amd resulting lower prices which have made the fiber more competitive. The trade teams visited buyers in Asia and Europe last November and December. Their findings were summarized by the Agriculture Department. "Sales prospects have increased in both the Far East and Western Europe, and long- term prospects in Eastern Europe are encouraging for U.S. cotton traders," the USDA said. Expansion into Eastern European markets, however, depends on resolution of a number of trade questions between the U.S. and countries involved, the department said. Legislature DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The 1973 Iowa Legislature must decide how to spend federal revenue sharing money for the first time, House Speaker Andrew Varley, R-Stuart, said Monday. In his opening remarks shortr ly after he was unanimously elected speaker as the 1973 legislature got underway, Varley told the 100 House members that although all were elected under a partisan political system, "the vast majority of the issues we face will be bipartisan." In the Senate, which convened about the same time as the House, Lt. Gov. Roger Jepsen presided, but did not make any opening remarks. Jepsen is expected to preside until Thursday when Lt. Gov.- elect Arthur Neu, R-Carroll, is formally inaugurated. "It is logical that given a set of facts," said Varley in his opening statement, " the solutions to most problems would be the same without regard to political affiliation. Good government is good politics." TEL AVIV (AP) - Israeli planes raided army and guerrilla bases in Syria twice today and shot down five Syrian MIG21 jets, the Israeli military command announced. Damascus Radio admitted the loss of three planes and claimed Syrian pilots shot down two of the Israeli raiders. But Israel said all its jets returned unharmed. Day in Court WASHINGTON (AP) - The Watergate affair, one of the spicier issues of last fall's presidential election, has finally reached its day in court. Seven men go on trial today on charges of breaking into the Democratic party's national headquarters. The trial could take up to three months to complete, with the jury sequestered to insulate it from the anticipated glare of publicity. Because of the controversy and high interest in the case 1,000 prospective ju- rory have been called. Woodsy Owl WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department wants Congress to give Woodsy Owl a legal patent of sorts so the U.S. Forest Service symbol of environmentalists can prosper like his cousin Smokey Pear. Woodsy was created in Sept. 1971 as a symbol of the forest service and gives the advice "Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute" to trekkers, campers and other visitors to the national forests. Smokey, who fights forest fires, was given congressional protection as an official government symbol some 20 years ago. As a result, Smokey dolls and other paraphernalia cannot be made and sold without some of the proceeds being turned over to the forest service. Patrick Sheehan, the forest service keeper of Smokey and Woodsy artifacts, publicity and promotion, says royalties from Smokey have totaled more than $1 million, with a record $200,000 turned over to the agency last year alone. "So far Congress hasn't given Woodsy the same protection, but we're hoping," Sheehan says. WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird, the first Cabinet official to face Congress since last month's heavy bombing of North Vietnam, said today that Vietnamization has made possible the total withdrawal of U.S. forces once POWs are released. •'The South Vietnamese people today, in my view, are fully capable of providing for their own in-country security against the North Vietnamese," Laird said in a final report to Congress prepared for the House Armed Services Committee. He said the Saigon government's ability to defend itself makes possible a settlement in which American war prisoners could be returned and the South Vietnamese would have a chance to survive as an independent nation. Laird's 104-page report reviewed his four-year stewardship of the Pentagon and his recommendations for the future, but made no reference to the recent heavy bombing of North Vietnam. But as the first high-level administration official to go before Congress since the bombing was broadened on Dec. 16 Set Nursing Course at Iowa Lakes Nurse aide - orderly training programs for the area have been announced by the Department of Adult and Continuing Education of Iowa Lakes Community College. The courses are designed to prepare individuals to perform procedures that assist the patient in meeting his basic needs. The program will enable the students to develop skills and will provide an educational background that will prepare them to function as members of the total health-care team. A class is scheduled to meet in Estherville at Holy Family Hospital Saturday, July 23, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for four weeks. Other classes will be starting at Spencer Municipal Hospital and Palo Alto County Hospital on June 11, Dickinson County Memorial Hospital on July 30 and St Ann Hospital in Algona on Monday, Feb. 5. The 120-hour program consists of 60 hours of classroom instruction and 60 hours of supervised clinical experience in a hospital and nursing home. and then restricted to below the 20th Parallel Dec. 30, Laird was certain to be questioned ' closely on the matter. The defense secretary said the equipment and training provided Saigon in the Vietnamiza­ tion program, of which he has been an architect, "has significantly enhanced the prospect for successful negotiation, but should negotiations fail, Vietnamization makes possible the complete termination of American involvement in the war." This, he added, is contingent on the safe return of American POWs and an accounting of the missing in action. Laird, who leaves office Jan. 20, apparently believes that even if President Nixon's efforts to reach a broader peace settlement for Indochina fail, .South Vietnam is now strong enough to hold on even with tin presence of an estimated 140,000 North Vietnamese troops within its borders. One of .Saigon's principal objections to the proposed peace settlement is its failure to provide for withdrawal of Communist forces. Since he last reported to Congress nearly a year ago on Soviet weapons developments, Laird said, the Russians have for the first time tested a big and improved new intercontinental ballistic missile.
