CHET HOLIFIELD, chairman of the House Government Oper-
ations Committee said yesterday it will be impossible for the Con-
gress to act on President Nixon's proposal to merge seven govern-
mentdepartments into four before the 1972 elections.
The California Democrat accuse'd the President of attempting to
create a situationtpermitting him to be critical of a Democratic Con-
gress just before the elections.

THE NATIONAL URBAN COALITION festerday issued an al-
ternative federal budget, hoping to stir public debate on rearranging
national priorities.
Their counterbudget for the years 1972-1976 is a 399-page document
developed by a special staff.
It calls for a gargantuan cut in spending for national defense and
military assistance and an increase of similar proportions in funds for
health, income support and education.

OPPONENTS OF THE SST lost one of their strongest argu-
ments yesterday when Boeing Co. specialists working on the giant
craftsannounced they can produce an acceptably quiet airplane.
A Boeing official told newsmen that this information will be ex-
tended formally to the Department of Transportation next Friday.
Calling attention to the stringent Federal Aviation Administration
noise level rule, the Boeing spokesman said "we couldn't get a relaxa-
tion, so I guess we just worked harder and found the solutions."
The necessary changes were complex, but involved basically a re-
duction in specific thrust to produce a quiet air flow moving at lower!
velocity.

LOS ANGELES c-A small piece of telegraph tape be-
wildered and frightened millions of Americans yesterday.
From a strategic military communications center inside
a Colorado mountain, the tape erroneously told the nation's
broadcasters the nation was under a presidentially imposed
state of emergency.
What did it mean? World War III? A missile attack? A
disaster? Or just someone making a mistake?

since Orson Welles' famous 1938 "War of the Worlds" broad-

POPE PAUL VI told Roman priests yesterday not to fear the
current questioning of the priest's role.
The pontiff, speaking before the priests of Rome at the Lateran'
University, said this attitude could turn out to be good for the Roman
Catholic church.
While for the first time conceding validity to sociological studies on
priestly troubles, Pope Paul nevertheless reaffirmed the church's teach-
ing on the ecclesiastical state of celibacy.

NEW YORK CITY is planning to build what it says will be thej
nation's first major pollution free solid waste disposal plant.
The installation will employ a new method of waste disposal that
bakes, rather than burns, garbage and industrial wastes in an oxygen-,
free kiln.
Termed- pyrolysis, the new method converts the refuse to gases,
with only about 5 per cent of the original bulk left as inert, inorganic
char residues which may be recovered as metals, activated carbons4
and other reusable resources.

AU HAZARD BALTHAZAR
FRANCE (1966)
Regarded as Biesson's masterpiece-it was voted
the Best Film of 1966 by Cahiers du Cinema. The
story is of a donkey Balthazar and is actually a com-
mentary on the lines of the people who own, love,
beat, and exploit him and each other.

WASHINGTON (P) - The 12
black House members renewed
yesterday their request to the
three television broadcast net-
works for free time to respond
to President Nixon's State of the
Union address.
They said the right of free
speech, the separation of powers
between the executive and legis-
lative branches, and the equal
time provisions of the broadcast-
ing code all support their claim.
An earlier request by the black
congressmen, w h o boycotted
Nixon's speech, was turned down
by the three networks.
This time the representatives
buttressed their case with a long
discussion of the legal and con-
stitutional issues they say are at

stake, and which they are pre-
pared to take to the Supreme
Court to be resolved.
The document was addressed to
Leonard H. Goldenson, president
of the American Broadcasting
Co., with copies sent to the
heads of the Columbia Br,.ad-
casting System and the National
Broadcasting Co.
It was signed by the 12 black
representatives, all Democrats:
Reps. Shirley Chisholm, of New
York, William L. Clay, of Mis-
souri, George W. Collins, of Illi-
nois, John Conyers, Jr., of Mich-
igan, Ronald V. Dellums of Cali-
fornia, Charles C. Diggs Jr. of
Michigan, Augustus F. Hawkins
of California, Ralph H. Metcalfe
of Illinois, Parren J. Mitchell of

Maryland. Robert N. C. Nix ofk
Pennsylvania, Charles B. Rangel
of New York and Louis Stokes of
Ohio.
They said the State of the
Union address is, in essence, a
partisan statement by a presi-
dent designed to assure the coun-
try that it is prospering under his
stewardship and that of his
party.
"Because it purports to be a
comprehensive review off trte im-
portant issues confronting the
nation it is significant both for
the issues it includes and those
it omits," they said.
"When the President omits a
subject, it must be assumed that
he feels it is not of great im-
portance."

But union sources indicated they'
apparently would have little choice
except to do so if Nixon imposes
a freeze and creates the board un-
der the Defense Production Act
which expires March 31.
Union leaders have said they
could not agree to any voluntary
plan to limit their members'
wages, and that any role they took
in government action to reduce
construction costs would have to be
forced by the White House.
Hodgson said both sides agreed
to make no comment on yester-
day's meeting "until after I've had
an opportunity to discuss this mat-
ter with the President next week."
However, Hodgson had told news-
men earlier this week that "we're
going to have to do something" to
curb construction costs.

The Strategic Air Command
(SAC) also ignored the alert and
dispatched no attack aircraft after
it was received.
"All we know is what we read
on your wire, that alert w a s
strictly for radio stations," s a i d
MaJ. Bill Corbin, director of in-
formation for SAC at its Omaha,
Neb. headquarters.
"We did nothing here at SAC."
Corbin added.

of Alaska
Morton disclosed his feelings
Friday to a Senate Appropriations
subcommittee. He said any decis-
ions "are not going to be made
on a profit-loss factor inherent to
any economic group.
Only last month the department
issued an environmental impact
statement saying t h e pipelitie
should be built because the nation
needs oil.
Morton, however, impressed with
the conservationists' argument's,
said that he thought Alaska had
acted hastily in selling the leases
because it could n o t guarantee
fedaaral approval of the pipeline.
If it is determined the &I is
needed "we still are going to do
everything we can to protect tte
environment and I'm a long way
from deciding that, this pipeline is
the way to do it," he added.
