ESTHERV1LLE DAILY NEWS, FKL, JAN. 26, 1973 Page 5 Johnson's Programs Fall With Nixon's Budget Ax By STERLING F. GREEN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Much of what remains of the Great Society of Lyndon B. Johnson may not long survive him. Many of the domestic programs and agencies by which the 36th president hoped to abolish poverty and rebuild the ghettos are sentenced to death or dismemberment under President Nixon's budget ax. Government sources said pri vately the Office of Economic Opportunity, conceived by Johnson as a major weapon of his "war on poverty," would be broken up and its remaining functions shifted to other agencies if Congress concurs. Nixon's fiscal 1974 budget message, ready for delivery to Congress on Monday, reportedly will call for total outlays of around $268 billion or $269 billion. That would be a relatively small increase from this year's Questions Supervision After War Experience First year Brownies of troop 296 received their Brownie pins during a troop 'Pin Party' with their mothers present Wednesday afternoon.

Rogers heads for Paris today following sessions with key for-' eign ministers on international policing arrangements for the" Vietnam cease-fire. Rogers will join his counterparts from North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong's Provisional Revolutionary Government in signing the; historic agreement to end the • Vietnam war. The pact will be.' signed Saturday at 10:30 a.m.; and 3:30 p.m., Paris time. -i On the eve of his departure by Air Force jet, Rogers conferred with Foreign Minister." Adam Malik on Indonesia's-i. plans for helping supervise the/! truce that is slated to go into effect at 7 p.m. EST Saturday. Indonesia is a member of the I planned International Control Commission along with Canada, Poland and Hungary. Each is* sending about 290 men to South Vietnam. Malik told newsmen Indonesia's first contingent, of 02 men, will fly into South Vietnam Saturday night. This could make it the first ICC group to arrive. And the Indonesian leader was optimistic about prospects for success of the four-nation watchdog force, totaling 1,160, in holding down cease-fire violations. "My feeling is that if all parties sign the agreement with sincerity, and it appears to be so, it will be workable," Malik said. Canada's foreign ministur, Mitchell Sharp, was more reserved after his session with Rogers. Canada will begin sending its 288-man group to Saigon-this weekend, he said, but will decide after 60 days whether the contingent is effective or should be withdrawn. "Our doubts arise out of our membership in the ICC in Vietnam" under the old 1954 Geneva agreements, Sharp said. "It has been a farce, and we don't want to repeat that." The old ICC was stymied by straitjacket procedures and obstructionist tactics by the parties. WASHINGTON (AP) - "If we couldn't keep track of North Vietnamese infiltration with all the people and equipment we used, how is the international commission going to do it with so much less?" The Army officer asking this question expressed the disbelief of many U.S. military professionals about the effectiveness of the machinery being set up to supervise the Vietnam cease fire. Behind them" are years of frustration trying to cope with a flow of North Vietnamese infiltrators into South Vietnam. Some officers recall there were 54 Green Beret camps spread all along the border; there were various kinds of exotic sensors and night-vision devices, and still the Americans never really could control infiltration. The new International Control Commission, made up of Canadians, Poles, Hungarians and Indonesians, will have six teams posted at wide intervals along the hundreds of miles of , South Vietnam's border with Cambodia and Laos and the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Vietnam. Another • seven: teams will: be tabbed for duty at additional inland points of entry to be chosen later. Still another seven teams, which will be concerned with return of prisoners for the first 60 days of the cease-fire, could be reassigned after that time to inland border surveillance. That would add up to a pos sible 20 teams, most of them numbering eight men each, to watch over a long inland border masked to a large extent by deep jungle. The plan also calls for 26 oilier teams of the same size to be based throughout South Vietnam to prevent troops already in the country from violating the cease-fire. Over-all, the international commission will number 1,160 officers and men. But about half will be at headquarters keeping records. Supplementing the international group will be a temporary joint military commission made up of representatives of the United States, North Vietnam, the South Vietnamese and the Viet Cong. After U.S. troops are withdrawn and all prisoners exchanged within 60 days, this four-party group will disappear and a smaller commission composed only of military men from the rival Vietnamese sidis will replace it. This joint-Vietnamese military commission, which is supposed to conduct preliminary investigations of truce violations, will also have 26 small teams spread throughout South Vietnam. The peace agreement and its many implementing documents are silent on any enforcement authority for the international commission or the joint military commission. $250-billion target, considering economic and population growth and the fact that defense spending may rise despite the peace agreement in Vietnam. Holding down the budget is made possible, officials said, by Nixon's heavy ax work on funds for housing, health, education and social programs, subsidized public-service jobs, work training and community services. Some of the targeted programs, such as the Rural Electrification Administration, date back to Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, but any of the housing and urban programs are legacies of the "Great Society" hopes of the man who was being buried today in his native Texas. An 18-month moratorium on new approvals of subsidized housing for low-income families was announced Jan. 5 by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The budget reportedly will provide no funds for new approvals in fiscal 1974, starting July 1. Officials said the budget will reflect a theme of the President's inaugural address last Saturday, that Americans henceforth can expect less from their government: "Let each of us remember that America was built not by government, but by people—not by welfare, but by work— not by shirking responsibility, but by seeking responsibility." Science, technology, space and atomic-energy programs also reportedly are due for paring. The White House Office of Science and Technology is being abolished; its functions will be moved to the National Science Foundation. The rise in federal financing of civilian research and development, which was a priority item a year ago in Nixon's campaign to rebuild U.S. competitiveness in world trade, is expected to level off or decline. But the economy blade will fall most drastically on the urban programs by which past administrations have tried to cope with poverty, unemployment, overcrowding, inferior schooling, disease and other big-city ills. Expect First POW Return To Begin Early in March By ROBERT A. DOBKIN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials say they believe Hanoi's first turnover of U.S. prisoners under the peace agreement probably will take place in about two weeks. Under the cease-fire accord to go into effect at 7 p.m. EST Saturday, the Communists are expected to free U.S. prisoners in roughly equal-size groups at four 15-day intervals as the United States pulls its 23,000 troops out of South Vietnam. The U.S. officials, who are • working on details of the POW. release, said they anticipate the initial group will be freed toward the end of the first 15-day period. "Operation Homecoming" to speed the return of the men is all set to go into quick operation, they said. U . S , medical-evacuation action. teams are slated to fly into Hanoi in U.S. planes and ferry the men to Clark Air Base in the Philippines for their first post-Imprisonment treatment. This differs somewhat from negotiator Henry A. Kissinger's account Wednesday that the evacuation craft probably would fly to Vientiane, the Laotian capital. Administration sources say Kissinger may have had in mind a reported Hanoi desire to have American planes fly out via the usual commercial air-corridor route across Laos, rather than heading in the other direction directly toward the Philippines. The North Vietnamese are to supply prisoner lists in Paris Saturday. By U.S. count there are 59> held captive in Southeast Asia, plus 1,334 listed as missing in Showbeat Haynes' E.S.P. Spawns E.T.A. Newsmen Plan For Russians KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The next time the Russians come to town, two Racine Journal Times staffers will be prepared. The two toured the ship Nemirovich Danchenko when it put in to this Great Lakes port. The 395-foot cargo ship, carrying a crew of 43, was loaded with thousands of tons of cattle hides, then upped anchor for Montreal. The two newsmen went aboard for a visit with Capt. Semenov Vitaly and two members of his crew and for a sample of Russia. "I think that we shall become good friends," Vitaly told his two guests as they drank vodka, ate salted mushrooms and munched on hard candy put up by Chief Officer Victor Pyhtin's wife in Murmansk, the ship's homo port. "My English is very poor," the captain said, "but I'd like to make you know that we are very happy to be in America." A part of the Arctic Lanes shipping fleet, the Danchenko, named after "Russia's greatest theater personality" sails regularly from Murmansk to the European continent and Canada, Vitaly explained. Victor Gregarin, a sailor for 29 years and the ship's chief engineer, is the only one of the three officers who had been to the United States before. "1 was in the Russian Navy during World War II and crossed the Atlantic with American ships in convoys from New York," he related. "Our hope is that we will become good friends again, as in those days." The only problem encountered thus far, they report, is that reporters and photographers coming aboard the vessel have put a dent in the vodka, mushroom and cigarette supply. By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD—(N E A)— To most of us, the initials ETA, if they are familiar at all, mean Estimated Time of Arrival. But Lloyd Haynes, the benevolent educator of Room 222, is working on a new definition. Haynes has started a program he called Education Through Aviation. It is designed to help "under-achievers" become intrigued with the learning process, by teaching them something new and exciting — the mysteries of airplanes. He has assembled a group of volunteers who gather at Santa Monica Airport. Using airplanes, loaned for the purpose, the volunteers teach the youngsters the basic principles of flight—aerodynamics, weather, flight rules, navigation, radio communication. The object isn't to make aviators or mechanics of thern but to stimulate their intellects. Haynes says that, exposed to a curriculum which interests them, they improve drastically in such basic matters as reading and math. He is a licensed pilot and aviation is his great off screen thrill. Onviously, it was his interest in flying which sparked his ETA brainchild. The actual genesis of the idea is clouded in the mysteries of the mind. "I'm the kind of person," he says, "who believes that things happen subconsciously. This idea just came to me — I didn't consciously think of it." On another level, a more personal level, he had a similar experience. He found himself dreaming about a certain girl. A girl he had never met. And then he finally met her and today Saundra is his wife. ' Lloyd Haynes "I'm the kind of person who believes that Uiinyx happen subconsciously." "I had been having this dream for a long time," Haynes says. "1 saw this girl —her long hair, her lace, although not any precise fea tures. At the time, I was going with another girl, mostly out of habit," One night, at a party, there she was. They didn t meet but both later compared notes and they had both noticed each other, both "felt something." Saundra, sometime later, was in a beauty parlor and read in a fan magazine that Haynes was going to be married. Even though she had never actually met him, that news was a shock to her, somehow. She dropped the magazine and screamed. She couldn't explain it rationally, but she screamed. After that, they happened to be dining in the same restaurant one evening. The man Lloyd Haynes was with noticed the girl at a nearby table and said, "That looks like a girl who's just right for you." So Lloyd looked and there she was. He went over and introduced himself and got her phone number. "For several weeks," he says, "all we did was talk on the phone. Somehow, I just couldn't ask her out. Hut finally I did and six months later we were married. "We couldn't help but get married — it was meant to be. 1 had dreamed about her and there she was." He has two step-children and they call him father. He says he doesn't want any more. "I'm 38," he says, "and I really don't have that ego thing of wanting any children of my own. I've always gotten along well with kids and there are many 1 know who call me Uncle Lloyd." Perhaps his rapport with children, coupled with his rapport with airplanes, is what sparked his subconscious mind to come up with the idea for Education Through Aviation. Whatever caused it, he's delighted. "I'm' doing something worthwhile," he says. "I'm contributing. And that's what we're here tor."
