ed diplomatic recognition of East Germany in a speech yesterday.
Brandt also used his state of the nation address to throw cold
water on East Germany's demand that Bonn loosen its ties or end
its membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
He noted that East Germany's partners in the Warsaw Pact
military alliance, which includes the Soviet Union, appeared to be
more flexible than East Germany in responding to Bonn's initiatives.
The statements by Brandt will probably dampen speculation
in diplomatic and press circles that West Germany might be moving
toward a reconciliation with the communist regime in East Germany.

PRESIDENT NIXON has ordered further substantial cuts
in his budget for the coming year.
While the exact nature of the cuts was not revealed, administra-
tion sources say the new adjustment could be as large as $2 billion.
Nixon made the request at a cabinet meeting Tuesday, which
suggested to some that by seeking spending cuts he might be tryingt
to avoid raisirig taxes in a congressional election year.
MICHIGAN SENATE DEMOCRATS yesterday named George
Fitzgerald of Grosse Point Park as their minority leader.
Fitzgerald, 68, succeeds Sen. Sander Levin of Berkley who step-
ped down to consider the possibilities of entering the race for
governor in this fall's elections.
A five-year veteran of the senate, Fitzgerald was labeled a
compromise candidate by some who saw him as acceptable to both
conservative and liberal wings of the party.
Fitzgerald denied the charge, but said, "I don't like to see the
caucus get wound up in conflicting opinions and ideologies."

FEDERAL SECURITY AGENTS have begun investigating
the possibility of sabotage at an Atomic Energy Commission
plant severely damaged by fire last spring.
An around-the-clock investigation has been ordered to determine
whether the May 11 fire was started deliberately. Part of the reason
for the probe is a series of what the AEC called "troublesome" events
since the fire.
The plant is a critical link in the country's nuclear weapons'+
production system, as the sole producer of plutonium, a vital in-+
gredient in some types of warheads.-
Actual news of the fire was withheld by the government and
released the same day that Apollo 11 landed -on the moon. Stockpiles1
of plutonium are allowing warhead production to continue, but the
plant must be operable by April to avoid any subsequent delays.

DEMONSTRATORS AGAINST the war in Vietnam were
arrested in Oakland, Cal. and Los Angeles yesterday for allegedly
blocking the entrances to selective service induction centers.
Nineteen men and women were arrested in -each city. Police said+
some had to be lifted bodily into a van, but that most cooperated+
when told they were under arrest.t
PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU of the Congo indicated 7
yesterday that he may be ready for a reconciliation of the two
Congos whose relations have gone from bad to worse in the past
few months.
Mobutu returned yesterday from Yaounde, where he helped cele-
brate the 10th anniversary of Cameroon independence. While there,
he apparently made a reconciliation with Jean Bokassa of the Central
Africa Republic, patching up a year-old rift.
Upon returning to the Congo, Mobutu said, "If Ngouabi had been
there we could have been reconciled with him as well." Marien,
Ngouabi, president of the People's Republic of Congo, charged Mobutuy
a few months ago of trying to instigate a plot against him.

Supreme Court
WASHINGTON (A - The Supreme Court yesterday ruled
6 to 2 that public schools attended by about 300,000 students
in five Southern states must be desegregated by Feb. 1.
Chief Justice Warren E. Burger and Justice Potter Stew-
art objected, saying the court should have heard ,argument
before acting so that "the varying problems" of individual
school districts could have been explored.
The decision reversed a Dec. 1 ruling by the U.S. Circuit
Court in New Orleans that the 14 school districts involved
could postpone desegregation ?

There were a number of ob-

The court's usual unanimity in

And Justices Hugo L. Black,

Harlan and White represent a re-
treat from the court's ruling in
a Mississippi case last October
which stipulated that every school
district is obligated to terminate
dual systems at once.
Yesterday, in a separate decis-

Davis, who helped found Johns
Hopkins' contraception research
center in 1963.
Citing reports that listed more
than 50 separate possible side ef-
fects from the. pill, including fatal
blood clotting, Davis said that even
if these were ignored "the nagging
specter of cancer remains."
"Breast cancers," he said, "have

dangers are manifested after pro-

smaller, less likely to be rejected
and has proved 99 per cent effec-

Two other witnesses -- Dr. Mar-
