Breault resigns
The county's Federal Grants Administrator Robert Breault
resigned, his post yesterday, under what he described as "pres-
sure" from certain County Commissioners. Breault's resigna-
tion was seen as the result of a drive by Democratic commis-
sioners, who now control the board, to remove remaining Re-
publican appointees. Ilreault said, "The way things have been
around here . . . you spend half your time defending yourself
instead of doing your job."
Dunham to speak
Sir Kingsley Dunham, internationally-known British geolo-
gist, will be the commencement speaker at the University's. grad-
uation ceremonies May 5. Dunlham, who has served as a scien-
tific adviser to tlhe British government, will speak on "The Uni-
versity and the Environment." The activities will be held in
Crisler Arena.
Dope note
WASHINGTON-According to a former highly-placed narc,
Federal agencies fight with each other over who gets credit for
a major bust with as much zeal as they pursue major drug traf-
fickers. And, according to former Drug Abuse Control Bureau
director John Finlator, such squabbles hurt the Feds' work.
"There is a built-in incentive for an agency and its director to
focus on the lower level of the heroin traffic where penetration is
easier and arrests and seizures are easier to come by," says

Offshore drilling resumes
WASHINGTON-The Interior Department has quietly started
clearing the way for resumption of offshore oil drilling inside an
area once proposed as an oil-free "sanctuary" of Santa Bar-
bara, Calif. Interior Department spokesmen said yesterday the
department has no legal right to continue blocking oil opera-
tions in the sanctuary. If the control-loosening process is carried
to completion, exploration and development off the Santa Bar-
bara coast could resume within a year. It was halted by former
Interior Secretary Walter Bickel in January, 1969.
No-Doz nirvana
ROSEVILLE-"I can take sleep or leave it." With those
words, 18-year-old Marshall Maynor is beginning a wide-eyed _
assault tomorrow on the world's record for sleeplessness. The
Guiness Book of Records lists the record for remaining awake
as 11 days, 18 hours and 15 minutes, set in 1968, and Maynor
thinks he can beat it. "Many people think I'mp crazy," he says.
Sexy airwaves subdued
WASHINGTON-Broadcasters of a radio program that fea-
tured women describing their experiences of oral, sex were hit
with a $2,000 fine by the U. S, Government yesterday. The
Federal Communications Commission said it slapped the fine on
the Sonderling Broadcasting Corporation for obscene and inde-
cent discussions of oral sex on a talk show. The proposed fine
of radio station WGLD of Oak Park, Illinois, is the first since the
government watchdog agency announced late last month it
would investigate and crack down on "topless;" broadcasts. The
crackdown is designed to check a growing trend of no-holds-
barred discussions of sex by listeners who are invited to tele-
phone in and talk about their sexual experiences and love lives.
Venice wins reprieve
ROME-Parliament yesterday. gave the final go-ahead to a
historic law for saving Venice from sinking into the sea with its
heritage of architectural and artistic wealth. The bill, which
allots the equivalent of $15 million to the giant task, got its final
approval from the Senate (upper house) after languishing In
Parliament since November 1971. The money will be spent over
five years to restore damage from pollution and decay, and to
start massive public works projects to stop the lagoon city from
being engulfed by the Adriatic Sea. At present, parts of the city,
Including Saint Mark's square, are covered by high tides each
winter. The city has sunk on its foundations about 5% inches
since 1908.a

Senator ......
f X011 S
Hubert Humphrey, (D-Minn.) said
yesterday the administration's jus-
tification of President Nixon's bud-
get cuts would not be sufficient for
a "sophomore debating course."
In releasing the White House Of-
fice of Management and Budget
(OMB) report justifying 108 bud-
get cuts, Humphrey said the ad-
ministration was being "clever,
diabolical, deceptive," in dealing
with Congress on the budget issue.
Asked if he was accusing Nixon<
personally of deceiving the Con-
gress and the public, Humphrey,.
said, "Mr. Nixon must take re-
sponsibility, but in many of these
items I think the President was
not fully informed by his staff."
The material sent to the Joint
Economic Committee to justify
budget cuts "consists of undocu-
mented assertions, descriptions of
programs, inconsistencies, errors
of logic and fact and a great deal
of extraneous material," Hum-
phrey told a news conference.
Humphrey said- the administra-
tion's estimated $17 billion savings

cludes $8 billion in "political cos-

clared $2.7 billion saving in social

Executive privilege deal deni

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Both the White
House and Sen. Sam Ervin (D.-N.C.) yes-
terday denied repbrts of an agreement for
presidential aides to testify i the Senate
Watergate investigation, but the White House
said there had been communication on the
Amid growing Republican pressure on
President Nixon to cooperate in Ervin's in-
quirv, presidential press secretary Ronald
Ziegler told reporters the White House was
conducting "ongoing communication" with
thQ committee on whether the aides would be
allowed to appear.
But as for a published report that ground
rules already had beenworked, Ziegler
said: "It is incorrect to state that any de-
cisions have been made." ,
And Ervin said of the report: "I can't cer-
tify that. I know of no-agreement."
The senator did say on Thursday, however,

that he thought White House aides now
were prepared to testify voluntarily.
Both Ziegler and Ervin, who heads the
special Senate committee investigating the
bugging affair, were responding to a Chicago
Tribune story which said arrangements had
been made for testimony by "any Nixon
administration official whose name has been
linked publicly to the Watergate case or who
was in a position to have pertinent knowl-
edge of President Nixon's re-election cam-
paign activities."
Their statements came as convicted Wat-
ergate conspirator James McCord Jr. met
again in private with staff investigators of
Ervin's committee.
McCord and his legal counsel declined to
comment as they left the meeting, and chief
committee counsel Samuel Dash said he had
cautioned them against saying anything
about the testimony.

Rep. John Rhodes (R-Ariz.) c
the House Republican Policy
joined in growing demands by
makers that Nixon soften his stan
tive privilege and allow aides t
they know about the Watergate b
Sen. Howard Baker Jr. (R-Tex
Republican on the Watergate
also urged Nixon to cooperate.

Congress overrode all of Nixon's
planned vetoes of several spend-
ing programs, a 15 per cent tax in-
crease would be necessary.

evidence that this would lead to

Police release facts
on extortion attempt
Police yesterday released some details of the failed ex-
tortion attempt Thursday night that led to a two-hour
evacuation of University Towers and a bizarre game of hide-
and-seek between police and a suspect on US 23 north of town.
According to Police Lt. Richard Hill, the management of
University Towers was contacted by telephone shortly before
8 p.m. Thursday night by an anonymous man who said he
would destroy the building with a bomb unless he was paid
