SEN. ROBERT HUBER (R-TROY), has announced the
final report of his special committee to investigate colleges and
universities, will not be released until after the August primary.
"To release the report prior to the primary would cast a shadow
of possible political motivation on the report," said Huber, who is
Opuosing Mrs. Leonare Romney in a bid to become the Republican
candidate for U.S. Senate.
Huber said the report, financed by $59,000 in state funds, will
be written by a special eight-member committee. A lengthy, two-
volume report detailing findings of the group which handled research
for the committee was released and reported on earlier this year.
U.S.-SOUTH KOREA CONFEREES have agreed to shift
more planes to the Asian nation and modernize its military
forces but broke up without a timetable for American troop
withdrawals.
Before the two-day defense meeting U.S. military officials said
a timetable would be worked out for departure of one-third of the
62,000 troops in South Korea.
South Korean President Chung, Hee Park, commenting on the
talks, said in Seoul he is strongly opposed to troop cutbacks for four
or five years. Earlier, the country's premier, Chung Il-kwon, said he
and his cabinet would resign if troops were withdrawn.

THE SOVIET UNION JOINED yesterday in saying that
Egypt, in effect, accepted the U.S. peace proposal for the Middle
East.
What Egypt said, in the words of President Gamal Abdel Nasser
in Cairo, was that Egypt approves and accepts what the United
States suggested but "we don't expect it to achieve any results be-
cause of Israel's attitude and its foolishness."
Secretary of State William P. Rogers had proposed for the United
States that Israel and the Arab states stop shooting and start talking.

Laborer throws tear gas into
Parliament during session

Nutrition expert blasts cereals
for containing 'empty calories'

LONDON (P)-Tear gas bombs
exploded yesterday in the House
of Commons, smothering the
ancient chamber in acrid smoke.
They were hurled from the
visitors gallery by a young man
who cried: "Belfast. See how
you like it!"
Members, eyes streaming with
tears, fled and the house was
closed down indefinitely.
Two bombs bounced and roll-
ed on the floor of, the vaulted
chamber, spewing clouds of
dense smoke and touching off
two small fires.
Attendants grappled with the
young man as he waved his arms
and shouted. Visitors scrambled
back from the struggle.
The man was identified as a
laborer. His angry words ap-
parently referred to the tear gas
used by British troops in quel-
ling rioting in Belfast, capital
of Northern Ireland, during the
past year of feuding between
Protestants and Roman Cath-
olics. Iobert Mellish, chief whip
of the Labor party opposition,
said: "It was right under my
feet,the first one. I thought it
was a hand grenade.
"I ran. I went like a bomb. I
wasn't going to read about my
bloody obituary in the Times."
That first bomb squirted un-
der the Labor opposition front

bench. The second came near it.
The twin explosion touched off
a fire.
Attendants nearer to the fire
snuffed it out with their jackets
while others carried the mace,
symbol of the ancient authority
of Parliament, from the cham-
ber.
Order papers littered the
green benches of the House, just
as they were discarded by MPs
as they fled from the chamber.
No one was hurt in the rush
to get out. Even 69-year-old Dr.
Horace King, speaker of the
House on the dais at the front
of the chamber, escaped from
his seat with the help of atten-
dants.

Due for debate later in the
day was the case of Bernadette
Devlin, member from Northern
Ireland now serving a six-month
prison term forvrioting and in-
citing riot during Catholic-Prot-
estant violence.

WASHINGTON (P) - A nutritional specialist
yesterday told Senate investigators that nearly
all of the most heavily advertised- dry cereals
contain only empty calories that can keep people
fat but not healthy.
In fact, said Robert B. Choats, 40 of 60 major
types of cereals he has studied have about as
much nutritional value as a shot of hard liquor.
This testimony by a citizen-lobbyist who runs
a small Washington consulting firm sent a
snap-crackle-pop through the breakfast cereal
industry.
Most of the big firms defended their products
and some of them implied that Choate doesn't
know what he is talking about.
"Leading nutrition authorities in the nation
just do not agree with Mr. Choate," said a
spokesman for the Kellogg Co.
General Foods said Choate "has made a great
many technical errors" in his testimony and "has
made a number of wrong assumptions about the
food industry and food marketing."
"These can/be corrected," General Foods said,
"if and when the industry is given an opportun-
ity to provide the right information to the sub-
committee."-
Aides of the Senate consumer subcommittee
which heard Choate said the cereal makers will
be given a chance to testify Aug. 4.

Choate told the subcommittee iheaded by Sen.
Frank Moss, (D-Utah), that "If a family likes
dry cereals and can afford them, there are several
with respectable nutritional content."
"But," he said, "it is apparent in this first of
several food industry analyses that we humans
are viewed not as beings to be nourished but as
suckers tb be sold."
Choate said a frequent defense of the dry
cereal makers takes the form of describing a
certain cereal's nutrient value in combination
with the milk and sugar it is supposed to be eaten
with.
But he said his studies showed that those cer-
eals he ranked in the bottom 40 would fail as
a complete meal even if the amount of cereal
was doubled.
A consultant to the White House, the Depart-
ment of Health, Education and Welfare, and
congressional committees, Choate said his analysis
showed cereals to be primarily a calorie source.
He said the nutrient value of 4 of the 60 are
so low "as to remind this observer of the term
'empty calories,' a term thus far applied to al-
cohol and sugar."
"Calories," he added, "are a measure of the
energy volume of food, but food must contain
more than calories if one is to remain healthy."
