MEARS Associated Press.Writer WASHINGTON (AP) With a 'dramatic and unprecedented televised veto, President Nixon has rejected a budget-boosting billion education-health money bill, warning "we can spend ourselves poor." Nixon told the national radio- TV audience Monday night appropriation though politically popular was "the wrong amount for the wrong purpose and at the wrong time.'1 "The the President said during the 11-minute speech, "is not whether some of us are for education and healUt and others against it The question is: How much can the Reaction licrc, Pg. 1-B federal government afford to spend on Uicsc programs this Then, after lining Hie reasons he said counted against the ap- propriation that exceeded his recommendations by bil- lion, Nixon, witltthe TV camera focused tightly on his right hand, signed the veto message first of his administration. Never before had a President wielded his veto pen before tele- vision cameras. And it seemed unlikely any bill ever had made so swift a round trip between Capitol Hill and the While than a day. In reaching past the Demo- cratic-controlled Congress lo argue his case before the na- licn, Nixon assured a White House-Capitol Hill showdown. The confrontation has building for more than a month, since Congress first defied Nix- on protests and fashioned the S19.7 billion appropriation for ihc departments of Health, Edu- cation and Welfare, Labor and tile Office of Economic Oppor- tunity. Final congressional action came. Monday in tire House, which settled a side issue by voice vole and rushed Uie con- tested appropriation on lo Ihe President. Nixon's retort was swill: "I believe that Ihe increase over the amount I recommend- ed, Ihe increase which is con- tained in this bill passed by the Congress, is not in the best in- terests of all the American peo- ple because it is Ihe wrong amount for the wrong purposes and at Ihe wrong lime." As he has from the beginning, Nixon called the appropriation inflationary. And as they'have from tbe beginning, Democrats insisted it is not. Former Vice President Hu- bert H. Humphrey restated a Democratic contention that Con- gress actually cut the Nixon budget by billion, even count- ing the increased health and ed- ucation spending. Humphrey DRUG PROBLEM HERE CITED said Ihe appropriation "is clear- ly not and urged Congress to override the veto. It will take a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senale lo override Nixon. The first try will be Wednesday in Ihc Mouse, which originated Ihe bill. The adminislralion needs 145 House voles to sustain Hie veto. House Republican Leader Ger- ald R. Ford of Michigan said the American people want il lhat .way. He said Nixon had presented Ihem a convincing case.

In its findings, the grand jury noted: "We would emphasize Lhal these numbers, though lavgc, are based to some extent on informalion which may or may not be (actual as to actual implication. "At present there docs not appear to be an 'organized' effort to promote drug usage in this area. Still, the numbers are staggering and should be of concern lo all. "We are concerned lhat evidence of hard drug as LSD, heroin, mcs- caline, melhaphelamine and Ihe beginning lo appear among our young, and particularly among Ihc high school age youth. "THE PROBLEM is nol confined how- ever, lo high school age youth. There are indications of drag abuse among the junior high school age students, allhought to a lesser degree. "Indications are that some students are engaging in physically injuring acts .such as sniffing glue, paint and aerosol mixtures. The truth of these matters is amply sup- ported by Ihc fact that narcotic-related con- victions in our courts have involved students from the high schools in Abilene as well as all of Ihe local colleges."
