SENATE UNIT OK:
WASHINGTON 0 - Warren E. Burger won swift Senate
Judiciary Committee approval yesterday to be chief justice
of the United States.
Thirteen senators agreed unanimously after the white-
haired judge assured them he does not think the Supreme
Court has the power to legislate or to amend the Constitution.
The Senate, now in recess, can complete the confirmation
process tomorrow, although Democratic Leader Mike Mans-
field of Montana said action next week is more likely.

NEWARK, N. J. () -- For-
mer Gov. Robert B. Meyner, a
Democrat, and Rep. William
T. Cahill, a Republican, won
their parties' gubernatorial
nominations yesterday in New
Jersey's primary, and will face
each other in the November,
Meyner coasted to an easy vic-
tory'over five rivals, leading his
nearest opponent by a margin of
more than 3-2. He withstood dual
. challenges from the Hudson Coun-
ty Democratic machine, the area1
between Neward and New York
City, and a new coalition of lib-
Cahill defeated Rep. Charles W.
Sandman Jr. in a tight race in a
field of five GOP candidates.
Sandman, the only unmistakable
conservative in the Republican
race, suffered an earlier disap-
pointment, losing a neck-and-neck
contest in the 1965 GOP primary.
Republican leaders were jubilant
at the outconte. "We're in better
shape now than anytime in the
past 16 years," one high ranking
official said. "This is the strong-
est candidate we could get." ..
Supporters of Meyner also ex-
pressed confidence the Democratsj
would win in November.
With about 80 per cent of the
vote counted, Cahill polled 112,-,
259 votes to 103,712 fo Sandman.
The next closest rival trailed the
two South Jersey congressmen
by well over 50,000 votes.
Eleven candidates sought the
nominations, six Democrats and!
Meyner, considered by many a
conservative, particularly in fiscal
matters, was the clear Democratic
favorite. His edge was based large-
ly on widespread voter recognition
developed in his two terms as gov-
ernor from 1953 through 1961.
Rivals charged that Meyner, 60,
would not bring a fresh approach
to current problems. The former
governor said he is° prepared to
tackle the problems of the 1970's,
with a new outlook.

dates are former State Sen. Ned

NEW INFORMATION BOOKLET
rcommi~ttee rolls its own.
By CAROL PINTEK
"The psychological effects of grass and
acid are a really personal thing," says one
student drug user. "It's something no
booklet can describe. People should en-
close samples if they want to teach what
a high feels like."
But the University has attempted to ex-
plain the turned-on experience with words
alone in a new pamphlet entitled "In-
formation about Drugs."
Put out by an ad hoc committee from the
Office of Student Affairs, the Drug Edu-
cation Committee, the booklet will be
given to all incoming freshmen\ in their

LSD. What about DMT and DET? The
difference between organic and inorganic
drugs should be noted," he adds.
The section describing the psychological
and physiological effects of marijuana is
totally unclear and value-ridden, says
Schwartz. "There is not much clinically
that has been said about marijuana."
Recent studies contradict many of the
pamphlet's conclusions, Schwartz main-
tains, but the new studies are as inconclus-
ive and inadequate as the previous ones,
Several student drug consumers' also
have found' the pamphlet inadequate and
objectionable. "The cover of the booklet
