PRESIDENT NIXON launched his special summit series with
allied leaders yesterday with a White House conference with
Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
Although economic issues ranked high on the agenda - with
Canada pressing for removal of the 10 per cent import surcharge -
other items ranging from expanding the East-West relations to
consideration of Asian policy, were also up for review.
Nixon will see at a one-a-week clip French President Georges
Pompidou, Britain's Prime Minister Edward Heath, West German
Chancellor Willy Brandt and Japan's Prime Minister Eisaku Sato
between now and January 1.
THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION yesterday
warned against the use of hexachlorophene for bathing babies
and adults, citing new studies questioning both the safety and
effectiveness of the germ fighter.
The agency ordered warning labels on soaps and skin cleansers
containing three per cent or more of the chemical and sent a sep-
arate warning to 100,000 physicians and other health professionals.
The FDA action was based on studies by the National Academy
of Sciences National Research Council, one of which showed that
baby monkeys who bathed with a three per cent solution developed

The North Vietnamese First Division has been marauding to thea

and two of Cambodia's main highways.
IN AN ADDRESS to 350 corrections specialists from across
the nation held in Williamsburg, Va., Atty. Gen. John Mitchell
revealed yesterday the creation of a National Corrections Academy
to reform American prisons, which President Nixon called "col-
leges of crime."~
The Academy will offer training for local, state, and federal
corrections personnel as an "effective means for upgrading the pro-
fession and assuring that correction is more than a euphemism for
detention," Mitchell said.
The corrections specialists met in the restored Virginia colon-
ial capital for a White House-sponsored National Corrections Con-
BOMBS AND GUN battles burst in Northern Ireland again
yesterday, ruling out any annive-sary celebration for the treaty
that was supposed to settle the Irish question 50 years ago.
As three prime ministers assembled in emergency meetings in
London on how to stop the violence, two bombs ripped apart a five-
story carpet factory in central Belfast and ignited a raging fire.
The treaty signed Dec. 6, 1921, created an Irish free state, now
the independent Irish republic, which has been wracked for the past
28 months by a terrorist campaign on the part of the insurgent Irish
WASHINGTON (M -- Lewis Powell Jr. was confirmed yes-
terday to succeed the late Hugo Black as a Supreme Court
The vote was 89-1, with Sen. Fred Harris, (D-Okla.), voic
ing the sole dissent.
Harris said he opposed Powell, a wealthy and conserva-
tive Richmond, Va., lawyer, because he believes the nominee
is an "elitist" who lacks compassion for "little people".
Powell is the third justice nominated by President Nixon
to win the Senate's approval and the first Southerner.

Abba Eban, Israeli foreign
minister, told the U.N. General
Assembly his government ac-
cepts a proposal by nine Afri-

"in order to reach a peace
Eban reiterated that Israel is
not prepared in advance of ne-
gotiations to give a commitment
on troop withdrawals from ter-
ritory occupied during the 1967
Eban dealt at length with six
proposals for Mideast peace
submitted to Egypt and Israel
by presidents of Senegal, Ca-
meroon, Nigeria and Zaire after
recent visits to Jerusalem and
Cairo. Five other African heads
of state associated themselves
with the proposals.
Describing the African peace
mission as "an impresivepat-
tempt to unfreeze the deadlock,"
Eban said, "It is evident that
Israel's affirmative reply to the
negotiation proposals submitted
by the heads of nine African
states offers a possibility for re-
solving the deadlock in negotia-
tions without prior surrender by
either party of its rights, claims
Eban appealed to the assem-
bly to face the "hard test" and
not to let "majority strength"
perpetuate the deadlock.
"If it opens the way to free
and unprejudiced negoiation it
will meet the test with a conse-
quent elevation of its efficacy
and prestige," he said.

on's nomination of Assistant
Atty. Gen. William Rehnquist to
fill another court vacancy created
by the retirement of Justice John
Rehnquist, 47, has come un-
der attack from some liberal
Democrats in the Senate for his
record on civil rights and civil
liberties, but supporters of his
nomination are confident he will
be confirmed by a wide margin.
The Senate Judiciary Commit-
tee endorsed the nomination by
a 12-4 vote.
Powell, 64, is a former presi-
dlent of the American Bar Asso-
ciation and of the American Col-
lege of Trial Lawyers. His nomi-

preceded the vote that "Mr. Pow-

"Indeed," Jackson said, "the
reception accorded his nomination
is a rebuff to those who suggest-

Mr. Powell's stature," Jackson
added in an obvious barb direct-
