Miss Taylor had left a birthday party in Point Breeze after telling several persons she was going to visit a boy friend 15 blocks away on Ked-ron Street, Homewood.

"There is no i Nixon said, "that more students have actually gone into teaching during the last 12 years as a result of this legislation, and no clear reason to think that its extension will increase military enlistments. This administration therefore prefers that the money that would be spent in canceling the loans of some student be used instead to make more loans available for all." Having lodged his specific objections to the bill, Nixon warned that he might veto a subsequent appropriations bill providing funds for the programs authorized under the legislation signed today particularly if Congress failed to revise some of these programs to meet his criticisms. "When the education appropriations bill comes to my desk," he said, "I will evaluate it by the criteria which I have mentioned in this statement and in my message to Congress concerning a-tion. Is the level of funding a 1 i 1 1 and responsible? Does it concentrate funds where they can do the most good? Does it expand our efforts lo discover what works and what does not work in education? Does it satisfactorily reform programs such as aid to impacted areas and the other outmoded programs?" The authorization bill establishes the guidelines for various educational programs and sets a ceiling on appropriations; the actual expenditures will be based on subsequent appropriation bills. For the past several years, education appropriations have been roughly half the authorized limit. Nixon warned that his signature on the authorization bill was not to be construed by Congress as a "commitment to seek or approve this unrealistic level of appropriations." OBLONG ElASTtC COVERS FOR.

The effects of alcohol itself are sometimes enough to bring on the disease. A "normal" dose of sedative could kill you if you've been drinking. Alcohol has a neutralizing effect on pheno-barbital, he said, such that the liver does not metabolize it as usual, and ordinarily "safe" dose can be toxic. Fat metabolism Is disturbed, paving the way for arteriosclerosis and heart disease. Protein synthesis Is also damaged. This drinking man's cham-ber-of-horrors was displayed by Dr. Chen See last night in one of a series of lectures on alcoholism sponsored by the United Mental Health Services of Allegheny County. He spoke at the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health. In an Interview, Dr. Chen See warned that blackouts-memory lapses for periods when you've been drinking are a sign that irreversible brain damage has taken place. But, Dr. Chen See confessed, he does do a bit of boozing himself, on occasion a few cocktails with friends." The occasional drink won't hurt you, he consoled, if your liver is sound and your general health is good. Library Helpless TUCSON, Ariz.
