Although the three are acquainted, they worked independently in developing similar findings about viruses and cancer. Baltimore said he was “very happy and very shocked” when he learned he had received the award in a telephone call from his wife Alice, a virologist who was in Copenhagen, Denmark, attending a leukemia meeting. He was in New York where he is a visiting professor at Rockefeller University. Baltimore then called his cowinner at Madison, Wis., with the news. “I’m overwhelmed and I’m honored to receive this award,” Temin said. He said his present research is attempting to “understand the relationship of the laboratory tumor viruses to natural cancer, which primarily does not appear to involve infective viruses.” Baltimore said, “We still don’t know whether viruses are involved in human cancer but the work helped us get the question in better focus.” In london, Dulbecco said he was taken by “complete surprise” and had not even known he was nominated. Temin was one of his students at the California Institute of Technology in the 1950s while Baltimore was part of Dulbecco’s research team at the Salk Institute at ta Jolla, Calif. WASHINGTON (AP) - The main outline of the proposed 1977 federal budget, including $28 billion in proposed spending reductions, should be decided within the next month, according to Budget Director James T. Lynn. Lynn said heads of government agencies and departments will begin reviewing their spending plans, including the reductions President Ford wants, with the Office of Management and Budget in the next week or two. If they are unable to agree, agency heads will be able to appeal to the President, who “will take them seriously,” Lynn said in an interview Wednesday. Among steps required to get within Ford’s 1977 budget ceiling of $395 billion may be cutbacks on growth in programs “that are generally called entitlement programs,” Lynn said. These include programs for the poor and elderly. Entitlement programs are those that increase automatically when the cost of living goes up or when new beneficiaries qualify, such as Social Security, food stamps, veterans benefits, aid to dependent children, Medicare, retirement benefit and child nutrition programs. Lynn said OMB has sent each agency head a spending ceiling Pancake supper is here Nov. 6 The annual Brownwood Kiwanis Club pancake supper will be held at Nov. 6 in the coliseum, president Bennett Ragsdale announced today. Tickets to the event were distributed to members at their luncheon today and are now on sale for $1 each. Wendell Dodds is general chairman of this year’s pancake supper. Serving will begin at 5 p.m. Nov. 6. Proceeds from the annual event are used to finance various Kiwanis Club youth activities projects and programs. for next year, including suggested reductions in programs that may be necessary to get within the ceiling. But he said agency heads are being encouraged “to come back with their own set of initiatives which may or may not be the same.” tabor Secretary John T. Dunlop said the White House did not suggest specific cutbacks for his department, but proposed over-all reductions that are “appreciable.” “They came to me and said, ‘Save us X dollars. Please let us know how you do it,’” Dunlop said. Ford urged on Wednesday that Congress agree to the budget ceiling he wants for next year to accompany $28 billion in tax cuts. “Without a change in programs, or any new program” half the American people will be supported by the other half in the year 2000,” he told a meeting of the National Association of Food Chains. Ford also said he thought “very encouraging” economic statistics would be released soon showing that the nation’s economy is on the way “to a sensible, long-range answer” to its problems. The government is scheduled to announce Monday the nation’s economic performance in the third quarter, as measured by the Gross National Product, and administration officials have predicted it will show much greater growth than anyone has predicted, possibly as much as an annual rate of IO per cent. tfc.

BROWNWOOD AREA -Partly cloudy and cooler tonight, clear to partly cloudy Friday. Low tonight in the 50s, high Friday in the 70s. Maximum temperature here Wednesday 76, overnight low 55. Sunset today 7:04, sunrise Friday 7:42. Variety still keynotes HPU homecoming events Cooler weather moves over area Showers were light and widely scattered over Mid-Texas this morning in the wake of a cool front which tumbled temperatures into the 50s over the area. Chances for more showers were fading this morning and forecasters said it should be only partly cloudy by tonight and clear to partly cloudy Friday. May had .30 of moisture from a shower this morning while sprinkles were recorded in Brownwood, De Leon and Duster. It should dip well into the 50s in this area tonight with highs again remaining in the 70s. It was 55 here this morning about daybreak after a Wednesday afternoon maximum of 76. Cool weather is expected to linger in Mid-Texas through the weekend but there is no mention of chances for moisture during the next five days in the National Weather Service 5-day forecast issued today. A cool front approaching the coastal plains of Texas and a tropical depression steering northward in the Gulf of Mexico set off fresh rounds of showers, light rain and occasional thunderstorms today. That depression, about 350 miles south-southeast of New Orleans near dawn, was credited for the moisture along the coast. Hurricane experts, keeping a close eye on it, reported the top winds still were 35 miles per hour and it was expected to keep shoving toward the north-northeast .

Dog story triggers rush of phone calls “We lost track after the first 50 telephone calls,” Jerry Clark, officer in the Brown County Humane Society said this morning. He was referring to the Bulletin’s Wednesday story concerning the doberman pinscher abandoned and left in a fenced backyard of a vacant house. A new home was being sought for the animal who had been under the recent care of neighbors and members of the humane society. “It was not a question anymore of finding a home for the dog but rather who to give her to,” he said. The calls began almost immediately after the Bulletin was delivered Wednesday afternoon. Calls came from both city and county residents, all offering a home for the abandoned animal. Finally Clark said he decided to give her to a young man whose doberman pinscher had recently died. Clark and the humane society are grateful for the tremendous response the Bulletin story had and along with the society’s president John Barkey and other officers pledged continued efforts to fulfill obligations of a humane society.

(Bulletin Photo) WASHINGTON (AP) - A new federal safety standard under consideration for power lawn mowers would add $44 to the price of bottom-of-the line models appealing to young married couples, manufacturers told a government agency today. A Stanford Research Institute report commissioned by the industry projected that the complex standard would put 15 to 20 lawn mower manufacturers out of business, depress sales by 20 per cent and cost consumers $367.5 million the first year. The proposed new standard was prepared by Consumers Union for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in an attempt to reduce the estimated 198,000 injuries attributed annually to power mowers. F ier this week the federal Co..,., ii on Wage and Price Stability suggested that the standard not be implemented until consumer benefits at least match the increased costs. The Stanford analysis showed an average 34 per cent price increase for walk-behind mowers, which account for 82 per cent of sales, and a 13 to 17 per cent price boost for more expensive riding mowers and lawn tractors. About $44 would be added to the average 1975 price of $110 for manual start push mowers and $160 for manual start self-propelled mowers, the Stanford institute said. Another $33 would be added to tile average $270 price for electric start self-propelled mowers and $23 to the average $95 price for electric power mowers. The biggest cost burden would be borne by young fami lies buying a mower for the first time. They would have to pay 50 to 70 per cent more for mowers now in the $60 to $90 price range, the report said. Executives of both small and large mower manufacturing firms were scheduled to meet with the commission to discuss the cost impact on them. The industry produced about seven million mowers last year and had sales in excess of $1.2 billion. Adverse economic conditions drove at least two large mower manufacturers out of business this year ;
