Regulatory reform
A House subcommittee charged in a report re-
leased yesterday that waste, delay and misman-
agement abound in four federal agencies that di-
rectly affect people's lives: The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), the Federal Communica-
tions Commission (FCC), the Consumer Product
Safety Commission and the National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Rep. John
Moss, chairman of the Interstate and Foreign
Commerce Committee's supervisory and investiga-
tions subcommittee, said the agencies fail to serve
the public "largely because of submission to the
pressure of special interests and from the execu-
tive branch:" The subcommittee recomended re-
moving the FDA from the Health, F cation and
Welfare Department and taking NTSA's motor
vehicle safety programs out of the Transportation
Dept. It suggested putting those regulatory pro-
grams, along with the consumer agency, in a
new independent regulatory commission.
All God's chillun got bombs
Princeton University senior John Phillips has
picked up an "A" on the paper he wrote last term
for his arms control class. The 34-page report
based entirely on public documents and unclas-
sified material-is a design for a 125-pound, beach-
ball-sized nuclear bomb with one-third the power
of the Hiroshima explosive. Phillips' goal was to
demonstrate that anyone, including terrorists, could
build such a device if they could get their hands
on about $100,000 worth of plutonium. According to
a California nuclear scientist, Phillips' bomb would
be "pretty much guaranteed to work." Phillips
said the key to triggering the plutonium in his
bomb is a top-secret, super-sensitive explosive
made by the DuPont Company for Army atomic
tests. He discovered the name of the explosive by
telephoning DuPont and asking them. A Princeton
professor has warned the resourceful student not
to speak with reporters or, presumably, men with
foreign accents.
Pennies from ieaen
A small, white and red airplane circled Rome's
Piazza Venezia yesterday and scattered hundreds
of banknotes in an apparent reaction to stiff
austerity measures decreed by the government.
Traffic screeched to a halt and motorists raced
out of their cars as soon as they realized that what
was raining from the sky was not publicity leaf-
lets but money. "There were hundreds of bills,"
said one passerby. "In a matter of minutes, they
were all gone, even from the roofs of buildings."
The bills ranged in value up to nearly $12. Romans
saw the bizarre stunt as an angry reaction to save-
the-lira austerity moves (and subsequent price
hikes) passed by the Italian government Friday.
Better late than necr

"We have enough powder to talcum everybody
in Spokane, twice" says Chief James Barbour,
senior chief of command at the U. S. Naval Re-
serve Training Center in the state of Washington.
The only problem is. the stuff is more than 30
years late. The invoice on a shipment of 25 one-
pound cans of talcum powder received at the
cente- last week said it was sent on Sent. 25, 1943.
The original consignee was the now-defunct U.S.
Naval Supply Depot, whose scuba divers may have
needed the talcum powder before they put on their
suits. The invoice indicates the shipment was Part
of a 200-pound order, the bulk of which, we as-
sume, ditd find its way onto those divers.

Hua ft
By The Associated Press and Reuter News Service
PEKING --Premier Hua Kuo-feng appeared
to have succeeded Mao Tse-tung as chairman of
the Chinese Communist Party and leader of the
world's most populous nation.
Wall posters were plastered up in Peking streets
yesterday proclaiming the appointment and a high-
ranking Chinese official told two foreign visitors:
"Mr. Hua has succeeded."
BUT LATE LAST NIGHT there was still no
formal announcement confirming the rise to su-'
preme power of a man who came to prominence
in Chinese politics only this year.
Asked to confirm Hua's appointment, a Foreign
Ministry spokesman told reporters blandly that he
would note their questions.
According to observers, the news from Peking
leaves no doubt that the Mao protege - virtually
unknown a year ago - is taking over at the rela-
tively young age of 57 with a firm hand. He suc-



ceeds to all of Mao's old titles: chairman of the
party, chairman of the Military Commission -
meaning he has the army's backing - and head
of the party Politboro.
HUA IS WIDELY VIEWED by analysts as a
stabilizing influence in the power struggle between
moderates and radicals in the party. His appoint-
ment is also seen as a reaffirmation of Mao's
policy of continuing enmity toward "revisionists"
who follow the "capitalist road" and toward the
Soviet Union.
A large, genial man, Hua is a native of Mao's
home province okHunan. He first caught Mao's eye
as an agricultural specialist and local administrator
After helping in the investigation of the late
Defense Minister Lin Piao, accused in 1971 of plot-
ting against Mao's life, Hua was given the post
of public security minister.

vice chairman of the party when Mao personally
sacked Teng Hsiao-ping, 72, who was close to Pre-
mier Chou En-lai and had been expected to take'
over after Chou's death last Jan. 8.
The official Chinese news agency Hsinhua an-
nounced Friday night that a memorial hall will
be built in Peking to house Mao's body, which will
be embalmed and displayed in a crystal sarcopha-
That announcement also said Hua was named
to take charge of compiling, editing and publish-
ing Mao's complete works.

42 10

Senior co-captain Rob Lytle rushed for
180 yards and Harlan Huckleby scored three
touchdowns as undefeated and top - ranked
Michigan rolled to its fifth straight victory
yesterday, a 42-10 thrashing of intra - state
rival Michigan State.
Fullback Lytle started his day - the best
of his career-with a 75-yard sprint for Michi-
gan's first touchdown and later added a 45-
yard run on a fake punt. Huckleby, effective
but less spectacular, finished with 126 yards
in 23 yards, one of them a 38-yard touch-
down jaunt.

THE WOLVERINES, who entered the game
the nation in rushing offense, total offense and
ing, had another big day against the typicallyt
Spartan defense. Michigan rushed for 442 yards,
ed 93 passing and' lowered its scoring average
slightly - to 46.8 points per game.


And it could have easily been worse for the Spar-
tans as Michigan twice failed to score from the one-
foot' line. Michigan State's only scores were set up
by Wolverine turnovers deep in their own territory.
"We did three things today that I didn't like,"
said a happy but predictably dissatisfied Bo Schem-
bechler. "We fumbled twice and didn't score when
we had the ball on the one before the half. I was
very, very distraught with that.
"BUT I WILL SAY THAT 42-10 over Michigan
State is a very good win. This was a big game for
us. It's always been a big game, a traditional game
-it means a lot."
Across the way, an. upset Darryl Rogers criticized
his ,Spartans, who are now 1-3-1.
"They (the Wolverines) are better than we are,"
he said, "But we were expecting a better performance
from our players. Overall, they just ran right at us
- they took it to us. I think the two goal line
stands were nice, but besides that, we didn't play
up to our potential."
MICHIGAN STATE'S brightest spot was its pass-
ing game, as junior quarterback Eddie Smith hit 24
of 46 (with two interceptions) for 251 yards. He was
aided by a stout offensive line that didn't allow a
single sack by the Wolverines.
But Smith's passing wasn't enough to break Michi-
gan's domination of the game. Twice the Wolverines

trade at

The scalpers were out in force for yesterday's crushing of
Michigan State; but the year's biggest home game saw many
tickets go unsold - bitter reminders of a bad investment for
their owners.
For a game with the Wolverines' bitter state rival, the ticket
prices'were surprisingly low. Most scalpers were, asking as little.
as $15 for a pair of seats and $7 for singles.
LIKE MOST capitalistic endeavors, scalping depends on supply,
demand and a fine sense of timing. Regular scalpers like to show
"A dude in a Cadillac cruised by and peel-
ed a ty-dollar bill of his bank roll for a
pair of fifty-yard-line seats. That's a dollar
a yard."
-Scalper Dan Hendrix
up at the stadium about 10:00 in the morning, since prices tend
to drop as game-time approaches.
"A ticket worth $10 at 10:30 is only going to be good for $6
or $7 at 11:30 or 12:00," said one scalper. Another said he had
made an early sale of fo:ir tickets together for $40.00, but couldn't
g-t rid of a leftover single for $4.00 at 1:15, a scant fifteen
rni.utes before ,he kick-off. Timing, it seems, is the most important
element of the scalper's trade.

County receives grant

A new program to combat

The new program, which will
