Wonts More Federal Help Clinton Pledges To Work For Education Bill Clinton of Fayclteville, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Congress in the 3rd District, said Saturday that, if elected, he would give the highest priority to improving the quality of education. "I favor a substantial increase in the federal contribution for education," Clinton said, "but I also believe that the degree of federal control should be reduced by giving local school systems the right to decide how to spend their funds regardless of the source." In releasing his platform, Clinton also said he thought Congress must work to change the federal tax structure. Such change, he said, should bring about a more equal distribution of the tax burden among persons of different income levels. He said Congress should fight inflation by substantially cutting the proposed federal budget which exceeds $300 billion. Congress also should start planning future budgets by considering the projected rate of inflation, he said Clinton also said Congress should strive to move toward a balanced budget. "President Nixon has increased our national debt bv mnre t h a n the four previous presidents combined and the cost of financing this debt promotes inflation." Clinton said. He also said Congress needed t o reduce the federal bureaucracy. ON OIL He said Congress also should force the major oil companies to disclose their reserves and nventories. should pass an excess profits tax and close tax loopholes. This, he said, wouM e n c o u r a g e investment i n research and development of American energy resources. He also contended that Arkansas had lost much federal aid as a result of Nixon's policies. On another subject, Clinton said if President Nixon is impeached and removed from office or even if he is only impeached, then the President would be further crippled and Congress would have a greater responsibility in governing the country. "I think Congress has been too weak for too long," Clintoi said. "I think that part of the problem we've had is that the Congress which is supposed to be the checking and balancing institution of our government and is supposed to limit the abuse of power and the concentration of power has not done thut. They have not been willing to take care of their own house, or to watch the other people enough." Hurrying Music TORONTO (AP) - Veteran band leader Benny Louis wants to see piped music installed in the Toronto subway system and the Toronto Transit Commission is interested. Louis, who has been asked by the TTC to submit a report, says the speakers could be arranged in such a way that travelers who didn't want to listen to the music or news reports could easily move out of earshot. He said the system would cost $100.000 to install and $60,000 a year to operate.

Better Watch Those Martinis They're Hard On The Stomach HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) -Those two or three martinis you have before lunch or dinner may make you feel great, but they also may be killing off part of your stomach, according to two medical researchers. Dr. Linda L. Shanbour, a University of Texas physiologist, and Larry L. Tague, a research associate, said studies of animals show that rapid consumption of cocktaiIs causes the lining of the stomach to erode and start bleeding. The researchers based their comments on laboratory studies done with dogs, but Dr. Shan- bour said she felt the effect "probably occurs in humans also." The alcohoi itself is not doing the mischief, the researchers said in an interview. But it breaks down a complex transportation system within cells which normally carry acids into the stomach. As a result, the acids si art acting on the gastric mucosa, or stomach lining. Within 30 minutes after consumption of two or three martinis, they said, parts of the stomach lining is rotted away by the acid and hemorrhagmg occurs. "If it were not for the rapid ttenerative capacity of the gastric mucosa," said Tague, "Ihe incidence of perforation and bleeding would probably cause ethanol (alcohol) to be classified as a poisonous mate rial." The damage is healed within 48 to 72 hours, they said, but will recur with the next binge of drinking. Erosion of the stomach mem brane may be the primary cause of gastritis, an ailmen! she described as "one of the major symptoms of the daily drinker." Morning-after habits of man} drinkers merely aggravate the ailment, s;iii Tague. Most drinkers suffering a hangover will reach for an aspirin-based drug. Instead of aspirin, Dr. Shan hour said the morning-after the drinker should reach for some bland foods -- milk, potatoes bread or hard boiled eggs Food, particularly protein-rich food, will help the damagcc stomach lining repair itself, she said. The researchers presented , paper on their laboratory Mm: ings during the convention hert Saturday of the Texas Medica' ' sociation. lorrhwwt Arkonw.
