TOP ISRAELI OFFICIALS yesterday denounced Egypt's new
peace offer despite warnings from Egypt's President Anwar Sa-
Sadat is reported to have said that fighting will resume by the
end of the month unless Israel responds to his proposal.
Sadat's proposal offered an extension of the present cease fire
and the reopening of theSuez Canal provided that the Israelis pull
back troops from the banks of the canal and withdraw from part of
the Sinai Peninsula.
PAKISTAN'S AIR FORCE yesterday continued bombing raids
on rural towns in East Pakistan.
e Indian press reports said Sheik Mujibur's "independence forces"
were still active in the East.

ing troops guarding power stations in many towns. It added that wide-
spread power failures followed the attacks.

SPACE -CENTER OFFICIALS have proposed a four shot pro-
gram to fill a four year void in manned space flights after 1973.
The proposed project would send astronauts into orbit to map
the United States, study earth resources and fight pollution by mak-
ing environmental measurements.
It would include one shot a year and would use surplus Apollo3
spacecraft which one official said "are going down the drain anyway."?
A BLUE RIBBON COUNCIL recommended yesterday that
Social Security benefits be adjusted automatically to the rise in
the cost of living.
This proposal would require a change from present Social Se-
curity law under which Congress sets the level for benefits each year.'
Among other recommendations of the council were an extension
of medicare benefits to all those receiving Social Security benefits due
to disability and raising the maximum amount of earnings taxable;
for Social Security from $7,000 to $12,000.
JOSEPH VALACHI, who disclosed the inner workings of
the Cosa Nostra, died yesterday of a heart attack at the La Tuna !
Federal Correctional Institution in El Paso, Texas.
Valachi became famous in 1965 when he informed on former
associates by disclosing the secrets of the Cosa Nostra as well as
identifying many of the organization's leaders before televised
Senate rackets committee hearings.
At the time of his death he was serving a life sentence for
murder. Prison doctors said the death was unexpected as Valachi
was not in ill health.
THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE'S director said yester-
day that childhood leukemia probably could now be listed among
the relatively few cancers that are curable.
Speaking before the 13th Annual Seminar for Science Writers spon-
sored by the American Cancer Society, Dr. Carl Baker said it was tooi
early to be absolutely sure about the cure potential for leukemia. '
In the strongest statement made yet by a government official,
however, he said a large percentage of children could be cured of the
disease by drugs.

SAIGON (Al) - A South Vietnamese spokesman yesterday
claimed that Saigon forces wrecked a veteran North Viet-
namese regiment in three days of fierce fighting at a fire
base in the central highlands.
"We can say that the eighth North Vietnamese Regiment
has been put out of action," said Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien in
announcing that the North Vietnamese were repulsed blood-

More than two hundred adver-

was characterized as slick gov-
ernment propaganda promoting
the Nixon administration's posi-
tion on the war.
"It seems clear that one of the
few battles the Pentagon h a s
won is the advertising and pub-
lic relations battle," said David
McCall, president of the New
York advertising firm of La-
Roche, McCaffrey and McCall.
The projects' founder said he
started the project largely out
of concern for the peace move-

He said the admen would be
asked to turn out commercial
messages by May 1 promoting
an end to the war.
At that time, he said, the
commercials will be examined by

He said any advertising ac-
cepted would have to meet the
test of "truth and fairness."
"Project Unsell" is aiming at

Hawaii's law, passed last year,
permits a woman who, has been a
resident of the state for 90 days to
have an abortion through the 24th
week for any reason.
The Alaskan law, which became
effective despite the governor's
veto, is similar to Hawaii's law,

Passed by a statewide referen-

Washington's liberalized abortion
law permits a physician to per-

on a woman through the fourthj
month of pregnancy.
The law, approved by 50 per
cent of the voters, has a residency
requirement of 90 days.
States following the ALI guide-
lines are more restrictive, making
it difficult for women, even resi-
dents, to obtain legal abortions.,
Because of the restrictions, abor-
tion reform proponents believe the
ALI guidelines to be outdated.
One objection made to ALI
guidelines is that most states re-
quire approval of bureaucratic hos-
pital boards before the woman can
have the abortion.
