(Telegraphoto-Harrigan) Steps to Overhaul Agency FDA Commissioner Ousted By G. C. THELEN Jr. WASHINGTON (AP) Secre- tary Robert H. Finch of the De- partment of Health, Education and Welfare has prescribed a treatment of ouster, upgrading and overhaul for his ailing Food and Drug Administration. For openers, the agency be- let from all sides from critics will have a new chief: Dr. Charles C. Edwards, a one-time Iowa surgeon turned American Medical Association official and management expert. Dr. Herbert L. Ley Jr., the present FDA commissioner, and two of his top associates, Win- ton B. Rankin and J. Kenneth Kirk got the gate Wednesday. Finch also restored the FDA's former automony within HEW, freeing it from subordination to the umbrella Consumer Protec- tion and Environmental Health Service. Reduce Bureaus Furthermore, the Food and Drug Agency will be streamlined along what is de- scribed as "product" lines. The present six bureaus will be re- duced to three: one for foods, pesticides and .product safety; a second for drugs; and a third for veterinary medicine. Structural changes aside, Ed- wards undoubtedly holds the key to the FDA's future success. While declining to talk specif- ically about cures for the agen- cy's ills, the 46-year-old, dapper grey-haired Nebraska native of- fered this general statement of policy in an interview: "Success of the FDA will mean a hard-nosed manager bringing in other hard-nosed managers as well as the best possible scientific talent. "The game has to be played rough. I firmly believe in mak- ing a decision, sticking with it and not wishy-washying around. "And I don't intend to be a pat- sy lor the pharmaceutical indus- try. Voluntary compliance is fine up to a point, but I intend to carry the big club at all he said. Edwards took pains to erase the impression left at a news conference that he would be soft on the pharmaceutical industry. He said then: "I feel we have to .move more in the direction of working with industry." His emphasis on "hard- nosed" management fits with a common complaint of HEW top- siders that Ley was indecisive on such sensitive issues as the safety of the artificial sweetener cyclamates. Democrat Picks Opponents; Peterson 'Beats' Thomson DURHAM, N.H.

(AP) Al- though the 24-hour sit-in at the University of New Hampshire ended without incident, the school has obtained a court in- junction to prevent similar fu- ture demonstrations. About 15 members of Stu- dents for a Democratic Society ended their sit-in on the third floor of Huddleston Hall late Wednesday. An equal number joined them in front of the building to hand out leaflets hear student speakers. The demonstration was to pro- test campus interviews by Gen- eral Electric Co. recruiters. The protesters said they were in support of the workers in the current strike against GE. The Stratford County Court injunction Wednesday night names nine persons but applies to all future demonstrators against recruiters on campus. The injunction also prohibits "committing any other act which will obstruct the orderly process of the university." Named in the injunction were Joseph Bom-ing and Katherine Phenix of Durham; Jann Laa- man of Newmarket and Buffa- lo, N.Y.; Robert Speirs III of Exeter; Vincent Stahley Jr. of Salem; Timothy Hopkins of Newmarket; Linda Roberts of Wellesley, Mass.; Eric McEach- ern of Portsmouth and Wind- ham; and Jefferson Brummer of Portsmouth, who is not a UNH student. mary contender Meldrim Thom- son. The former congressman made the remark in an inter- view to be televised tonight on the state's educational network. The Laconia real estate agent said the Democrats haven't come up with a candidate yet but that Manchester attorney Emile Bussiere who in 1968 was defeated narrowly by Peterson for the governorship, has been discussed in some party circles. "I haven't talked with Huot said, adding, "the name lias been brought up not in an official way (and) there are other people." Huot was asked about reports Concord attorney and former state Banking Commissioner Vincent Dunn, who was de- feated by Bussiere in the pri- mary, also might run. Huot's answer was, "I hear the rum- ors."

Huot also said he didn't think the Democrats were party to a reported Republican attempt to have Peterson appointed to a job in the Nixon administration. Several high Republicans would like to remove Peterson as a re-election contender, ac- cording to the reports. The Democrats, Huot said, would rather face Peterson than the Orford book publisher, de- feated in the 1968 Republican primary. DEMOCRAT Page 2 Area Fortunate Rain Not Snow It's beginning to look a lot like there's been a swap-off between Santa Claus and the Easter Bun- ny. And, unless Santa's elves can whip up an ark before Christ- mas Eve, that may be just as well. Santa will find it tough going in a sleigh, since the Greater Nashua area has had 2.49 inches of rain this month, with nary a speck of lingering snow. Yester- day's downpour alone dropped 1.27 inches of rain. And, the tem- perature at 7 a.m. today was a highly unseasonal 54 degrees! If all this rain had been snow, there would be 2-Vi feet of the white stuff. But, since the weath- er forecast calls for cloudy and cooler weather, with no' snow in immediate sight, somebody had better teach those reindeer how to swim!

Its first major dent into the syndicates is expected next week- in a round of indictments by federal grand juries in four North- eastern cities. Meets Success Justice Department officials describe the effort against or- ganized crime as the most suc- cessful of several of its anti- crime programs. And Asst. Atty. Gen. Will R. Wilson, chief of the depart- ment's criminal division, said, In an interview, the most "defi- nite results in the form of indict- ments" are still to ably next spring. "There's been a determined Wilson "to come to grips with the heart of the rackets problem in our big cit- ies." The progress of this year's an- tiracketeering campaign cannot be measured in terms of arrest and indictment statistics, he in- sisted, since many of those re- sult from investigations begun under former Atty. Gen. Ram- sey Clark. His proposal to deal with crime in Washington, B.C., is bogged down in Congress, and supporters say there's no chance of passage until the new session next year. No appropriations for anti- crime programs have obtained final congressional action, leav- ing the Law Enforcement As- sistance Administration, the agency established to adminis- ter the 1968 Safe Streets Act, un- certain about how much money it will be able to channel to the states next year. Taking note of the pending or- ganized crime cases, Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell said Wednes- day indictments expected in one city within 10 days will "break up the largest gambling syndi- cate in history." He did not specify the place, but he said federal investigators have found "a large group" of Internal Revenue Service em- ployes in one state "to be con- trolled by the Mafia." Other of- ficials said he referred to New- Jersey. The organized crime program and more vigorous antinareotics drive are the main reasons cit- ed by government prosecutors for budding optimism about law enforcement prospects in the 1970s. Even FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, normally a prophet of rising crime rates, is now say- ing the problem may be con- tained within the next few years.

Nixon summoned the Demo- cratic and Republican floor managers of the bill, Sens. Rus- sell B. Long, D-La., and John J. Williams, R-Del., to the White House this morning for a last- minute conference to spell out his objections to the bill. The Senate cleared the way for the expected final passage Wednesday night, disposing of the last of scores of amend- ments and barring further floor additions. Favor Cotton Plan One of the amendments ap- proved by a 65-30 vote of the Senate was one introduced by Sen.-Norris Cotton, R-N.H. aimed at restricting imports of certain goods to protect the shoe, tex- tile and electronics industries in New England. The measure passed lover ob- jections from the Senate's free trade bloc. Both Democratic leader Mike Mansfield and Re- publican leader Hugh Scott voted for the Cotton amendment. The proposal, unsought and op- posed by the White House, would allow.the President to establish quotas on foreign imports if he found they "disrupt the domestic or cause "injury to industries, firms, or workers in the United States." The quotas could only be imposed on goods from countries that restrict the SEN. NORMS COTTON importation of American-madi products. Sen. Jacob K. Javlts, R-N.Y., attacked the Cotton amendment as having no place in a tax bill and putting the Senate on record in favor of a protectionist trade policy at a tune when freer trade was desirable. The amendment also was op- posed by Secretary of Commerce Maurice H. Stans who said that the administration did not want the authorization the amendment carried. Passage sends the Tax He- form to conference with the House almost immediately, where leaders say there is lit- tle doubt many of the Senate amendments will be stripped away. Rep. Wilbur D.
