Prof. notes

Wilbur Cohen, dean of the education school and former secre-
tary of Health, Education, and Welfare, said yesterday in testi-
mony before a congressional committee on consumer economics,
that the new Nixon- administration budget would have an ad-
verse impact on virtually all aspects of society. "In all my 38
years of budgetwatching, I have never seen such a poor set of
budget justifications sent to the Congress," said Cohen. Another
well-known University personality, economics Prof. Gardner
Ackley, former chairman of President Johnson's Council of Eco-
nomic Advisors, again advocated yesterday "a permanent ma-
chinery for the continuous monitoring of wages and prices and
for moderating their rate of increase." Ackley spoke to the New
York chapter of the American Statistical Association.

Radical chic
SAN FRANCISCO - If Tom Wolfe could see the "radical
chic" set now? No longer is it "in" to entertain Black Panthers,
according to Texas millionaire H. Ross Perot, but now it is
.POWs. Perot is throwing a $250,000 party for ex-POWs from
North Vietnam's Son Tay prison camp and the Green Beret
commandos who made a futile effort to rescue them 30 months
ago. Perot is paying for the Green Berets to be flown to San
Francisco- from bases around the world, and POWs from hospi-
tals around the US. Everyone who is anyone will undoubtedly
be there.

Today's going to be a good Friday. Good for watching

Support for the BAM demands
touched off a massive student
strike in March, 1970. The central
issue of the demands was a ten
per cent black enrollment goal by
the 1973-1974 academic year, and
services to aid the newly enrolled
minority students.
The University agreed to meet
the demands.
Yesterday, however, the admin-
istration projected a total black
enrollment of 8.6 per cent for the
fall-1.4 per cent short of the goal.
Total minority enrollment - in-'
cluding American Orientals, Amer-
ican Indians, and Chicanos-is pro-
jected to reach 10.8 per cent.
Pat Wilson, an undergraduate ad-
missions counselor who has work
ed with the program, blamed the-
failure on a number of factors.
"This is a selective institution," C
said Wilson. "We cannot and will
not take every minority student
who applies."

2 citycops
charged with
assault in $5
million suit
Local cab driver and sometime folk singer
Joseph Harrison yesterday filed a $5 million
lawsuit in Federal District Court charging
two members of the city police force with
assault and battery and false imprisonment.
Harrison, in a personal interview, said
patrolmen Jay Brooks and Walter Willard
"brutally attacked me without provocation."
In the alleged attack Harrison's left wrist
and little finger of his right hand were
broken, after the officers reputedly beat him
to the floor of his front porch.
Willard and Brooks were investigating a
complaint that Harrison and several friends
violated an anti-noise ordinance by playing
excessively loud music during a jam session
on the evening of April 11.
Around 8 p.m. the officers came to Har-
rison's home and warned him he was dis-
turbing the peace. Harrison said he adknowl-
edged the warning and went hack inside.
Shortly afterwards Harrison stepped out
again and the police ordered him to approach
their car.
"I asked them to come up on the porch
since I had no shoes on," Harrison said.

{ Mitchell
and Dean
WASHINGTON () -- Atty.
Gen. Richard Kleindienst an-
nounce+ yesterday he has
withdrawn from the Water-
gate investigation because it
involves friends and asso-
ciates. His announcement fol-
lowed reports that President
Nixon's campaign deputy ac-
cused John Mitchell and John
Dean III of planning the
Democratic party bugging.
The charge that Mitchell and
Dean helped the Watergate plan-
ning were attributed to Jeb Ma-
gruder, formerly the No. 2 man in
the Nixon campaign organization.
Dean, the President's official
lawyer, did not respond directly
but told newsmen he will not be-
come a scapegoat in the case. His
statement apparently took the
White House) by surprise. '
The allegations were published in
yesterday's Washington Post.
Kleindienst, who replaced Mit-
chell as attorney general when
Mitchellsbecame Nixon'scampaign
director, said he turned the probe
over to Asst. Atty. Gen. Henry
Petersen because it "relates to
persons with whom I have had
personal and -professional relation-
"It would be entirely inappro-
priate for me to exercise control
over the sensitive matters beiag
developed by the Department Pf
Justice,"sthe attorney general said.

The New York Times last night

attended three meetings at which

cussed, but he rejected the plan
at all three meetings.

conspirator in the case and Mag-
ruder- attended all the meetings
with Mitchell, the Times said.
Mitchell was quoted by the Times
as telling friends he rejected the
idea of bugging the Watergate

the class of '73, who saw the

or this year's
WASHINGTON (UPI) - The super-tight job market of the lastl
years is beginning to loosen up a bit, according to the Carnegie
mmission on Higher Education. But spring college graduates still
't do nearly as well as their counterparts a decade ago, who could,
k and choose from numerous job offers.
The commission's report on "Graduates and Jobs: Adjusting to a
w Labor Market Situation" and its informal telephone survey in
rch of several dozen colleges and universities drew several specific
clusions about this year's job market for college grads-most
peful, but some discouraging. The report, however, emphasizes its
w that a college education is still worth it.
Among the brighter conclusions:
-Prospects are good for persons entering health care fields, par-,
ularly for highly specialized nurses and medical doctors;

te a to open up
'o11ege graduates
-Prospects generally are favorable in accounting and in salaried
managerial positions;
-Community colleges are having good luck placing graduates it
law enforcement fields and students with technical training in such oc
cupations as lab technician;
-The sharpest increases in the number of job offers to graduate
this spring are in engineering, in contrast with the 1970 situation wher
unemployed engineers were going orb welfare; and
-Job prospects are improving in public administration.

Now for the bad news:
-Prospects are least favorable for students preparing for teach- Ves
ing occupations in elementary and high schools, with the exception of
bi-lingual teachers in areas with concentrations of Spanish-speaking "
