Sagging Confidence In a niove designed tojrestore sagging investor confidence in the beleaguered company, Sir Eric Wyndham White, a former — director gfineraL-of— the— trade regulating General . Agreement on Tariffs and -Trade, was elected temporarily to replace Cornfeld. Sir Eric, a 57-year-old relative IOS newcomer, acquired an international reputation as an unexcelled practitioner of compromises and consensus in the Kennedy round negotiations in the mid-sixties which sue cessfully slashed free world tariffs. Named temporarily to succeed Cowett was Richard M. Hammerman. A ten-year IOS veteran, Hammerman led the company's successful insurance branch before taking over leadership of the crisis committee -formed three weeks ago. Need Managers Both Sir 'Eric and Hammerman were reliably reportet as favoring a European solution to the IOS crisis, brought on bj vestments and a lack of liquic cash in the parent company. The pro-European faction reasoned that Europeans mab up the vast majority of the 900, 000 IOS investors and thereb; needed managers of their own continent to restore public con fidence in the company. At this point company as sets have sunk from $2.3 to $2 billion, partly as a result of falling world stock markets, but mainly ag a consequence of massive redemption Af tnal fond plans by panicky tevestofs. ... ^ With his team of 16,060 super alesmen, GOfnfeld — who likes 6 be called Beffiie — built a $2 Billion mutual funds empire and massed a personal fortune of 140 million. Private Jets With his wealth, Cornfeld xnight three private jet air- jlanes, two Swiss castles and ame known for all-night par-, ies. Cornfeld's life style was lav- sh. First, he bougnt_a castle hat once belonged to a hirteenth century crusader and hen he added a $500,000 Lake Geneva chateau bought from the U.S. government. Girls Everywhere He spent $1 million renovat- ng the chateau and added gold bathroom fixtures, including a amous golden toilet ( seat. In lis jets he also commutes to his apartment in Paris, a ownhouse in London and a ho;el sufte in Manhattan. Miniskirted girl aides abound sverywhere around Cornfeld — at his company's home offices, on his many trips and at his parties. Cornfeld's informality has spread to the company offices where the word ."sir" is never heard and executives shout to each other through doors that arc always kept open. Mom m* . t ^i f Mod Calves By Ed Meaghef ® Th« L6j Ano«l«s timei ONTARIO', CALIF. ~ The tender scene of a cow nursing her calf. is not often found around commer c i a 1 dairies nowadays. \ Calves usually are x taken from their mothers a few hours after birth and hand-fed by dairymen from nipple buckets. But the C. S. Musser & Sons dairy here and a few other dairies around the United States have takea-the ultimate step — they're feeding their calves mechanically. This is the mod dairy scene today: Two facing rows of 60 individual~pens^-Gentle eyes-in-faces- of placid innocence contemplate each other across eight feet of intervening space. The calves are waiting for mama. The only mama they'll ever know. Some mama! 140-GaIlon Tank A circular metal tank which holds 140 gallons of milk and an djoining wooden structure with eed troughs — the whole mounted on tracks and' profiled by an electric motor. Projecting from opposite sides of the tank, within easy mouthing distance of the >enned youhgsters, are rubber lipples with protective nose guards. Eight oes not fall short of motherly efinements. . Sit Feedings Daily It feeds each calf si'* times a ay, ever? tout hours' around he clock. It is lit up a* night. The milk is warmed only al he instant of feeding by a thermostatically controlled Heater. — Only one man is required andle the feeding of the alves, according to Hawes. After six W eight weeks the calves are parted from their mechanized. midwife and tent to group pens for more growing up. After a while, if feminine in ender, they will join the dairy erd. And meet the milker. Me- hanical, of course.

In calvus are fed ic uf by the ii each metallic side, mommy at the same time. The machine moves down one pen every three minutes. Not a tender sight, perhaps. But efficient. _ Leo Hawes, superintendent o! the Musser dairy, said the calves are taken from their mothers about 12 hours after birth. They are then hand-fed, but not for long. They are in troduced to the pens an< mechanical mama at the ag of two days. "We have to show them where the nipple is," said Hawes. "Most of them catch on within a matter of hours."
