Prof. Simpson killed
Prof. John Simpson, chief of the Medical Center's Outpatient
Neurology Clinic, died Thursday from injuries suffered in a car
accident near Toronto. Simpson's wife Harriet and son Douglas
also suffered injuries. Simpson joined the University in 1962 and
was a member of Senate Assembly, the faculty representative
body. Funeral arrangements are being made by the Muehlig
Funeral Chapel.
South of the border
Are there plans afoot to start a Latin American branch of
the University? We know nothing except that another University
administrator is off to sunnier climes. Vice-President for Re-
search Charles Overberger is "consulting" this week with the
staff and students at the Macromolecular Laboratory of the
Federal University of Rio in (guess-where) Brazil. He joins
President Robben Fleming, who is down south until the end of
Busing note
The University's commuter buses will service the I-M Bldg.
on Hoover Ave. in both directions starting Monday. Previously,
you could only catch a bus there on your way to Crisler Arena.
Now you can catch a bus there to go to Central Campus.
The University Club's Happy Hour was a little bit happier
yesterday when it was the scene of a drinking contest between
the Student Counseling Office and The Daily. Contestants par-
ticipated in three events: taste discrimination (or "can you tell
the difference between light and dark beer when blindfolded?"),
a "relay race" in which team members tried to see who could
down two pitchers of beer the quickest, and an individual chug-
ging contest. The results are a bit foggy now except for a club
official's verdict: "If I knew you people were going to do that,
I would have put you on the opposite side of the room." (For
further details, see Page 7.)

Safety last?
SAN FRANCISCO-Americans must learn to live with the
"risk" involved in pesticides and other farm chemicals-or face
even higher food costs in the future, Secretary of Agriculture
Earl Butz told the National Canners Association yesterday. Butz
criticized scientists and those "who dwell unduly on the safety
issue" regarding the use of chemicals in the farming industry.
"Farmers are criticized for using herbicides, pesticides, and
nutrients essential for bountiful crop production." If those who
criticize "have their way-if they make us absolutely safe-
the time could come when we don't eat meat. We' go through life
taking risks, even when we cross the street, drive down the road,
step into the bathtub, jog or climb a ladder. The only reason
we can sustain 210 million people in this country with a high
protein diet is that we have modified the 'environment," Butz
said in his speech.

The weather picture
It couldn't last, could it? Get out and enjoy the morn-
ing (still predicted for the 50's), because it's supposed to be
raining by nighttime. By Sunday morning, that rain should
be looking like snow flurries, with the low in the 30's.
The weather people are using words like "temperatures
in the teens" and "snow" to describe the outlook until
Tuesday when a "warming trend" is predicted. Oh well,
how sweet it was!


Nixon administration yester-
day confirmed it plans to
dismantle the Office of Eco-
nomic Opportunity (OEO)
thereby cutting 2,000 people
from the Executive Office
The uprooting of the antipover-
ty agency, a cornerstone of the
late President Lyndon Johnson's
Great Society, was acknowledged
by Roy Ash, budget director for
President Nixon.
"There will be many other re-
ductions over and abovethe
OEO," Ash said at a White House
briefing called to explain the
elimination of three smaller Ex-
ecutive Office agencies: the of-
fices of Emergency PreparednessJ
and Science and Technology and
the National Aeronautics and
Space Council.
In a message to Congress, the
President said this was the first
step in a sharp reduction in the
overall size of the Executive Of-
fice. He said it would help him
in his job.
The three branches will be dead
within 60 days unless Congress
objects. White House Press Sec-
retary Ronald Ziegler said drop-
ping the three offices would cut
389 jobs and save about $2 million.
Ash and Ziegler said the event-
ual goal is to reduce the Execu-
tive Office from the 4,250 people
who worked for it last June to less
than. 2,000. Elimination of OEO
will cut out some 2,000 of these
jobs, Ash said.
Thedeathdof OEO, Johnson's
pet program for helping 'the na-
tion's poor, evidently is reflected
in the fiscal 1974 budget to be pre-'
to 1 sented to Congress next Monday.
Most of its programs presumably
ri Iwill be divided among various
federal agencies, with the Depart-
ment of Health, Education and
Welfare getting most of them. The r
legal-service program, a bone in
the throat of conservatives since it
provides lawyers to combat gov-
ernment programs in court, will
be left without a home. Vw J

By AP, UPI and Reuters
President N i x o n yesterday
proclaimed a "national day of
prayer and thanskgiving" to
begin when the Vietnam cease-
fire goes into effect while U.S.
B-52 bombers carried out the
heaviest bombing of South Viet-
nam in nine months.
Nearly 400 Vietnamese civil-
ians were reported killed in fight-

soldiers reported killed, 615
wounded and 34 missing.
Two U.S. servicemen were also
killed yesterday-possibly among
the last to die before America's
12-year-old military involvement
ends in Vietnam.
One man was killed in a rocket
attack against Bien Hoa Air
Basenorth of Saigon, the other
in an apparently accidental
crash of a small U.S. helicopter.
A command spokesman said
yesterday 407 sorties were flown
during the past 24 hours against
communist positions and supply
dumps and in support of South
Vietnamese troops fighting on
the ground.
B-52 bombers also dropped
nearly 1,000 tons of explosives

Shortly after the cease-fire, the
