Last Tango in Stillwater
Richard Nixon waltzed into the night years ago, but students at
Oklahoma State University are bringing him back for one last dance.
The OSU Student Republicans, of all people, are hosting a "First An-
nual Nixon Memorial Trick or Treat Dance" Nov. 1 and are giving
away a tape deck and 60 minutes of erased tape as a door prize. To
promote the event, club member David Rumph, made up to resemble
Nixon, will ride in the school homecoming parade today. "We've got a
long black car and are going to. have six guys dressed in dark suits
walking along side," said Matt Steward, president of the club. Seward
said the recent promotional effort has doubled membership in the
college Republican club, and local merchants report brisk sales of
Nixon masks. But although state Republican Chairman Rick Shelby
has said he may attend, the original Trick or Treater has refrained
from expressing himself on the subject.
Sam on sex
r s n~"I think sex is the most impor-
tant thing on earth," former Sen.
Sam ervin told a Kansas City
crowd Wednesday in his earthly
manner. But that doesn't mean
the Senate Watergate committee
chairman favors the EquaL
Rights Amendment (ERA). "The
ERA is not necessary because the
Supreme Court now holds that
,ys r;, every law in the land-federal or
state-which makes any distin-
ction between the rights of men
and women in unconstitutional
.,r unless the law is based on
reasonable grounds for the
y protection of women," Ervin
said. The ERA will die unless 38
states ratify it by March 22, 1979.

On the outside...
Looks like another mundane foorball Saturday. The high will be only
58, and unfortunate post-game boozers will need all the alcohol they
can get into their bloodstreams because it may snow tonight. Yes,we
keep saying that. But our forecasters, bless their souls, say the over-
night low will dip to 310 with a slight chance of rain or snow. Tomorrow
will see a high of 570.
Viewers of fake trial
find Oswald guilty

Ehrlichman sentence trimmed

WASHINGTON (UPI)-John
Ehrlichman yesterday was granted a
reduction in his sentence for the
Watergate Plumbers break-in and
-could leave federal prison in two weeks.

Ehrlichman had been serving three
concurrent terms of 20 months to five
years for perjury and violating the civil
rights of Daniel Ellsberg's psychistrist.
U.S. District Judge Gerhard Gesell
yesterday trimmed that to 42 mon-

Two win Nobel prize
for economic studies

ths-making him eligible for parole
Oct.28 after one year in jail.
GESELL'S ACTION came after
Judge John Sirica on Oct. 4 granted
Ehrlichman a reduction to 1-4 years
from his original Watergate cover-up
sentence of 30 months to eight years.
Sirica had specified Ehrlichman's sen-
tence run concurrently with his term
for the plumber's conviction.
Ehrlichman, John Mitchell and H.R.
Halderman-President Richard
Nixon's most trusted aides-received
the sane sentences for, conspiracy, ob-
struction of justice and perjury in the
cover-up. Sirica reduced that to 1 to 4
years when they apologized and admit-
ted guilt via dramatic recordings taped
in prison.
Halderman and Mitchell will be
eligible for parole June 20, 1978.
BUT SINCE Ehrlichman voluntarily
entered prison Oct. 28, 1976 at Stafford,

Ariz., while awaiting the outcome bt
various appeals, Gesell's decision
means he could be freed in two weeks-if
the Parole Commission agrees.
Ehrlichman was convicted July 12,
1975, for violating the civil rights of Dr.
Lewis Fielding, Ellsberg's psychiatrist.
Ellsberg had leaked the Pentagon
Papers to nev('s media.F
The leaks so infuriated Nixon- th t
Ehrlichman formed ,the, so-called
"White House Plumbers."
THE PLUMBERS most notorious ac-
tivity occurred Sept. 3, 1971,-thre
months after Ellsberg, who worked for
the Brookings Institution, leaked the
top-secret Pentagon Papers on the
origins of the Vietnam War.
With Ehrlichman's approval, Ber-
nard Baker, Eugenio Martinez and
Felipe. DeDiego broke into the
Fielding's Beverly Hills office, seareh-
ing for confidential files they hoped
would publicly discredit Ellsberg.,

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP)-A
retired British professor and a former
Swedish cabinet minister, both in their
70s, won the 1977 Nobel economics prize
yesterday for their "pathbreaking con-
tributions to the theory of international
capital."
Cambridge professor emeritus
James Meade, 70, and Beertil Ohlin, 78,
former Swedish liberal party leader
and one-time commerce minister,
shared the $145,000 prize in the last
Nobel award to be made this year.
Earlier prizes were given in Stockholm
for literature, physics, chemistry and
medicine and i Oslo for
peace.
THE BRITON and Swede were
cited for classic works written between
thekarly 1930s and 1950s. The Swedish
Royal Academy of Sciences said their
studies have gained actuality and im-
portance with. the increasing in-
tegration of the world ecomony in the
past two decades.
"It has become increasingly clear
that problems related to the allocation
of resources, business cycles and the
distribution of income are very. much
international problems," the academy
said.
Meade in particular was cited as "the
leading pioneer in the field on inter-
national macrotheory and international
ecomonic policy."
THE ACADEMY said Ohlin "has
developed a theory that demonstrates
which factors determine the pattern of
foreign trade and the international
division of labor on the one hand, and on

electrocuted
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP)-Three
fraternity brothers building a float for
the Oklahoma State University
homecoming celebration were elec-
trocuted yesterday when part of the
float's decorations came into contact
-with a high voltage line, fire officials
said.
Authorities said they had reports of
other injuries and a fire at the Alpha
Gamma Rho fraternity house about a
block off campus.
Th victims were not immediately
identified.

the other shows what effect foreign
trade has on allocation of resources,
price relations and the distribution of
income."
A leading Swedish ecomonist, Prof.
Assar Lindbeck, summed up their
work: "Ohlin is the originator of the
modern theory of trade. Meade ap-
plied the theory to ecomonic policy
problems. He is also the originator of
stabilization policy."
Meade was on his way to the University
of Buckingham when the announ-
cement was made. "By the time I
arrived everyone seemed to know about
the prize except myself, "he said. "I
was completely overpowered."
