NATURAL SCIENCE AUDITORIUM
U.S. STEEL CORP. announced price increases of 7.7 per
cent yesterday on a broad range of products to be used in the
autoand appliance industries.
The announcement followed by just three days a ruling by the
Federal Price Commission in Washington granting U.S. Steel per-
mission to raise prices across the board an average of 3.6 per cent.
A spokesman said the 7.7 per cent increase, applied to "less,
than half of out total products and does not affect the rest of the
GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS reported yesterday that most
of the DDT used in the world remains unaccounted for and that
man is extremely lucky not to have absorbed more than he has.
Nearly 6.2 billion pounds of the pesticide have been manufactured
and used worldwide since 1942, the report said, but only about 11.9
million pounds can be found in the tissues of all humans, plants,
animals, fish and birds on the planet.
THE NATO ALLIES closed ranks yesterday in the face of a
Soviet military buildup around the world.
The 15 NATO members set about patching up old differences
with a series of new compromises covering political, economic and
military issues that have nagged them for years.
At the center of NATO's re-emerging unity was a political agree-:
ment' to delay the start, of talks with the Communist countries on
European system of security. These exchanges will begin, the allies
said in a communique, only after the Soviet Union signs and seals
a Big Four accord on divided Berlin.
A BROADER, more intensive $1.6 billion attack on cancer
will be launched under a bill sent to President Nixon yesterday.
The bill gives an enlarged budget to the 34-year-old Nationalj
Cancer Institute and mandates it to step up its research into the
causes of and a cure for cancer.
It also contains provisions designed to give the cancer agency
direct access to the White House in getting support for its effort.

The vessel, the Heering Kirse, was several hundred miles north-

did not know whether any other members of the 36 man crew left:

WASHINGTON (R) - The Senate confirmed yesterday
President Nixon's nomination of Asst. Atty. Gen. William
Rehnquist to be a Supreme Court Justice. The vote was 68-to
26. On the roll call 30 democrats voted for Rehnquist's nom-
ination and 23 against; 38 republicans voted for and three
against. The dissenting republicans were Jacob Javits (N.Y.),
Edward Brooke (Mass.), and Clifford Case (N.J.).
Opponents, who challenged Rehnquist's commitment to
civil rights and civil liberties, gave up the fight after the Sen-
ate rejected, 70-22, a motion(1 --

Ariz., lawyer, will replace retired
Justice John Harlan. Powell, 64, a
former president of the American
Bar Association, will succeed the
late Justice Hugo Black.
Nixon; in announcing the nom-
inations on Oct. 21, described both
Rehnquist and Powell as judicial
conservatives and indicated he
hoped their appointment would
strengthen the "peace forces" in
Rehnquist's nomination quickly
ran into opposition from civil
rights and labor leaders. Bayh and
some other liberal democrats in
the Senate joined in the effort to
block his confirmation.
Supporters of the nomination
said opponents had failed to make
a case and called Rehnquist out-
standingly qualified to serve on
tht Supreme Court.
The vote on confirmation came
speedily after the overwhelming
rejection of Bayh's motion to cut
The House voted overwhelming-

Nixon's economic control powers
and to compromise the touchy is-
sue of retroactive pay.
Nixon also signed a bill cutting
individual and business taxes by
$15.8 billion over three years, hil-
ing it as in inflation-controlling

expected to give the bill quickap-

House and Senate on Thursday.
In a related economic develop-

yesterday approved the actions of
four federal reservebanks reduc-
ing the discount rate for 43/ to

S TheHouse supported the full
extension of economic powers re-

proposals for an earlier cutoff.
