Yesterday's story on the New York Summer
Intern Program referred to the program as the
New York Media Interns Program by mistake.
Also, the date of the mass meeting is October 17
at 7 p.m. in Aud. B of Angell Hall.

ley at 3 p.m. . . . At 3:30 and 7 p.m. the India

Pre-meds abroad
Over 500 American college students will leave
the country during the next year, to study at
medical schools in Europe, according to the non-
profit Institute of International Medical Educa-
tion. These pre-medical students will join more
than 4,000 Americans now enrolled in medical
schools abroad, the Institute says. Increased gov-
ernmental and private insurance programs are
one of the several reasons for the continuing short-
age of physicians in the U.S. the Institute says, and
with the limited enrollment in American medical
schools, almost half the doctors employed by
hospitals in this country are graduates of foreign
medical colleges.
Prime rates drop
The nation's two largest commerciad banks and
some smaller banks lowered their prime lending
rates yesterday by one quarter of a percentage
point to 11% per cent, effective Monday. The
move was part of a pattern of lower rates in the
money market where banks buy the funds they
loan to businesses. The latest reduction in the
prime rate from its record 12 per cent, pioneered
last week by Chase Manhattan bank and Morgan
Guaranty Bank of New York, was adopted yes-
terday by the bank of America of San Francisco,
the nation's biggest bank, and the First National
City Bank of New York, the second largest. Al-
though the prime rate is not directly tied to per-
sonal and small business loan rates, a movement
in the prime often indicates the direction of other
loan rates.
A September cold wave caused hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars in damage to crops across the
Midwest and East, oficials reported yesterday.
They said soybeans and corn were hit the hard-
est with damage also to tomatoes, Kentucky's to-
bacco crop and New York State grapes. The cold
weather brought frost to states like South Dakota
as early as Sept. 3 and there was freezing report-
ed in late September in most of the northern Mid-
west. The result, officials say, was the destruc-
tion of crops like corn and soybeans that are norm-
ally planted late and which in some areas were
planted later than usual this year because of heavy
spring rains. The only good news was a predic-
tion of short range benefits to beef consumers and
a positive effect on the eastern apple crop.

Prostitutes protest
Twenty Geneva prostitutes yesterday lodged a
protest with the Swiss supreme court against a
parliamentary decree that bars them from plying
their trade during the daytime. The prostitutes said
they had lost half their income since parlia-
ment gave its ruling five weeks ago. One said
yesterday that the decree was apparently passes
with the aim of protecting Geneva schoolboys. "I
think that's confusing the problem. Children see
worse on the television and at the movies," she
commented, "We must be allowed to work auring
the day. Some of us cannot work at night because
of family commitment . .."

Doctor to
tell gov't.
of dope 's
Robert DuPont, a top govern-
ment drug official, will tell
Congress Monday of new evi-
dence of harm from long-term
use of marijuana, his executive
assistant said yesterday.
DuPont is director of both the
White House Special Action Of-
fice for Drug Abuse Prevention
and of the National Institute on
Drug Abuse. His assistant, Rich-
ard Bucher, said that DuPont
would testify Monday that:
"WITHIN the last two years,
continuing research has turned
up evidence of changes in basic
cellular mechanisms and initial
research indicates that there
may be adverse immunological
and genetic implications for
long-term or heavy marijuana
"In addition, marijuana has
been found to have adverse ef-
fects on reaction time a-id on
mechanical performance, con-
sequences of particuflar con-
cern in connection with mari-
juana use and driving."
Bucher said he could not ex-
plain the references to cell
changes or genetic implications
but said he believed tne ad-
verse immunological e f f e c t s
meant lowered resistance to di-
sease. DuPont could not be

Highest figure in
more than 2 years
WASHINGTON (Y-The nation's unemployment rate
rose to a 21%-year high of 5.8 per cent in September, its
biggest increase since January and a reflection of the
sluggish economy.
The Labor Department said yesterday that 440,000
Americans joined the jobless rolls last month,, bringing
the total number of unemployed across the country to
5.3 million.
A WHITE HOUSE spokesperson called it "a big jump" but
said it was in line with forecasts made earlier this year. Demo-
crats in Congress called for bold action and AFL-CIO President
George Meany said President Ford should fire his economic
advisers left over from the Nixon administration.
Ford has indicated he will propose an expanded public service
jobs program to hire the unemployed when he goes before Congress
next week with his new economic program.

FIRMLY GRIPPING the arms of his wheelchair former President Richard Nixon, followed by
his daughter Tricia, leaves Long Beach Memorial Hospital Medical Center yesterday. Doctors

snread throughout the economy
last month. It is expected to in-
crease further, rising above 6
per cent next year, administra-
tion officials have predicted.
The government reported
heavy layoffs in manufacturing,
wholesale and retail trade and
in construction, where the job-
less rate last month rose to 12.4
per cent, its highest level in
fouir years.
The four-tenths of a per cent
rise in September's unemploy-
ment rate matched last Jan-
ilary's increase at the height of
the Arab oil embargo.
SINCE October, when the job-
less rate dropped to a 3 -year
low of 4.6 per cent, the number
of unemployed persons has risen
by_ 1.2 million.
In a statement, Meany said
that Ford, as he gets ready to
announce his economic pro-
gram, "must remember that
these aren't percentages but
people-human beings whose
living standards are being de-
stroyed by a continuance of
Richard Nixon's disastrous eco-
nomic policies."

Nixon returns home

after hospitalization
LONG BEACH, Calif. OP) - Richard Nixon, in a wheelchair
with his phlebitis-stricken left leg propped up, left the hospital
yesterday. Travel restrictions-imposed by his doctor made it un-
likely that he would take the witness stand anytime soon in the
Watergate coverup trial in Washington.
"An extreme potential danger still remains," said Nixon's
doctor, John Lungren. He said Nixon, 61, was "literally physic-
ally exhausted" from the tests he has undergone since being hos-
pitalized Sept. 23.

his 5% years in office.
The agreement would allow
Nixon to destroy any of his
papers after three years, and
any of his tapes after five years.
But the tapes would have to be
destroyed upon Nixon's death
or no later than Sept. 1, 1984.
MEANWHILE, the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee voted to
allow Nixon only $200,000 of the
$850,000 President Ford had re-
quested to help Nixon make the
transition to private life.
The House already has ap-
proved the $200,000 figure, which
includes the pension and mini-
mal staff expenses allowed all
former presidents, as well as
$100,000 for such items as post-
age and communications.
The committee also specified
that Nixon's tape recordings
must be preserved until Con-
gress passes legislation deciding
how they should be handled.
THAT SAME provision was
approved by the House Wed-
The bill passed by the Senate
is based on the premise that
Nixon's tapes and papers "con-
tain additional evidence relat-
ing to the Watergate crimes."
Thus, the Government Opera-
tions Committee wrote in ap-,
proving the bill, "the ultimate

LUNGREN SAID the former

months for his phlebitis. Lun-
gren said that while taking the
drug, Coumadin, Nixon is in
danger of hemorrhaging if he
should suffer an injury or "phy-
sical trauma of any kind," such
as an ulcer.
Lungren held a news confer-
ence 30 minutes after Nixon lift-
ed himself from the wheelchair
and into a waiting black limou-
sine to be whisked away with
his wife, Pat, and daughter,
Tricia, to the seclusion of his
San Clemente estate.
"I would say that the time of
him being able to travel safely
would be from one to three
months depending upon how
well he responds to the anti-

ficulties in obtaining access to

OTHER changes Kelley said

Kelley is currently seeking re-

Kelley hesitated to call for the
legalization of marijuana, say-

scientists on this issue." He
added that he felt all the facts
about the drug are not known.
