CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATORS accused the Division
of Biological Standards (DBS) of allowing 32 ineffective vaccines
to stay on the market for over ten years.
A General Accounting Office report also said the DBS released
flu vaccines for three years even after tests proved their potency to
be less than one percent of standards.
The report urged removal of ineffective biological products from I

THREATENED STRIKES by the United Transportation Union
(UTU) against Penn Central Railroads and the Sheet Metal Work-
ers Union against the Association of American Railroads may
cause President Nixon to invoke a "cooling off" period, press
secretary Ronald Ziegler said yesterday.
Under provisions of the Railway Labor Act, Nixon can create
an emergency board to look into rail disputes and make any strike
illegal for 60 days.
Invited from the nursing
school and high school rosters
of Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Man-
chester, Dexter and Saline,
most women at the meeting Fri-
day indicated that the Army was
almost their only alternative.
"I don't have the money for
college," remarked one 16-year-
old, who said she wanted to go
into psychiatric nursing.
A University nursing student
concurred, saying she wanted to
take the burden of her educa-
tion off her father.
"I'm a materialist," another
"The Army is not for rich peo-
ple," Tasey commented. She

my job now" and in the excite-
ment of Army life. "I have
ideas of spies and stuff", com-
mented one high school sen-
ior. Another said she hoped tc
"learn responsibility, see the
world, and meet new people" in

A 30-DAY FREEZE on the prices of fresh meat and poultry
was announced by Grand Union Co., the country's tenth largestI
There was no immediate indication that other major food re-
tailers would take similar action.
Should there be any declines in wholesale prices during the 30
days, Grand Union said its retail prices would be reduced accord-
ingly. Grand Union president Charles Rodman said that "by holding'
the price line on meat for a month we are doing something positive
in the fight on inflation."
RALPH NADER'S Aviation Consumer Action Project peti-
tioned the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) yesterday to penalize
the nation's major airlines for their late flights.
The research group stated that all airlines made their schedule

which is one per cent below the minimum requirement set by the
Citing Delta and Eastern Airlines as the two most tardy, the group
suggested airlines pay a penalty to their customers equal to the'
price of the ticket for a cancelled flight and $25 to each passenger
for each half hour a flight is late.
By REBECCA WARNER
"The most beautiful girl in the
world. A U.S. Army Nurse."
This is one of the slogans de-
corating publicity posters and
pamphlets at the local Army re-
cruitment center as the Wo-
men's Army Corps (WAC) and
Army Nurse Corps (ANC) step
up a recent campaign to increase
their strength, doubled in the
past two years.
In sharp contrast to the care-
free atmosphere of Army re-
cruitment films and publicity,
however, was the attitude of
women at a WAC and ANC open
house Friday night.
High school students and Uni-
versity nursing degree candidat-
es, they were generally more
concerned with training and pay
opportunities than with Army
men, swimming pools and chap-
eroned dances. Almost none said
they would prefer the Army to
college if they were able to af-
ford further academic training.
Surrounded by a generous sup-
ply of party food, the 50 to 60
women attending the openhouse
saw three Army films and talk-
ed to about 10 uniformed Army
recruitment officers, male and
"No you don't have to get vjur
hair cut" and "Yes you can get
married," Sergeant Alice Tasey
told a group discussing WAG.
Another officer, Lieutenant
Paula Stalbaum, who returned
recently from a nursing assign-
ment in Da Nang, passed around
a height and weight require-
ment chart when several wo-
men expressed the fear that
they would not meet Army

Army "I felt like a real wom,.,n,"
commented one movie's typical

her. "They needed a smile," she
Publicity also stressed t h a t
femininity need not be lost by
enlistment. "As an officer in
the Army Nurse Corps y u are
truly a professional woman, but
no less a woman than you can
be in any other pursuit, ' bub-
bled one pamphlet.
WAC's may work in any of
96 job specialties ranging from
food service and clerical work
to "intelligence analysis" and
psychological warfare. Few WAC
jobs are highly trained however,
most requiring from 6 to 13
weeks of specialty training.
The Army offers women op-
portunity for promotion, respon-
sibility, and continuing educa-
tion, its publicity emphasizes.

FRIDAY and SATURDAY: Jan Nemec's
REPORT ON THE PARTY AND GUESTS
From the same period as the Czech films as Closely Watched Trains, Shop On Main Street, and Fifth
Horseman Is Fear; Nemec's Party and Guests is a searing allegory about the people's willingness to
conform to fascism. A picnic is interrupted by a mad guest who persuades the others to join in his-
"dame" of insults, humiliation, and torture, when one guest declines, he is chased with dogs and guns.
"It is certainly one of the best Czech films ever made, and Nemec is clearly one of the most powerful
and universal young directors at work."-Renato Adler, NKY. Times

Once upon a time, Gaius Petronius, ARBITER ELEGANTIAE to Nero's court, wrote the world's first novel, the
SATYRICON, now extant only in fragments, and long suppressed or expurgated in this country until a decade
ago. Fellini takes parts of this, and in perhaps his greatest film, follows two handsome pagan hippies through
picaresque episodes in a pagan world-as it was in Nero's time, and as it may be in ours. (For an excellent
article, see Gilbert Highe':'s "WHOSE SATYRICON-Petronius's or Fellini's," Horizon magazine, Autumn 1970,
