Sate Conducted by LIVESTOCK LTD. TAMH, AITA. OAKVJCMSCN, Uc. No. JOHNNY OMM.TON, Lie No. 293 region as big as Italy, has six to live, its officials say. Without huge grain handouts and without rain, the remaining cattle will die. Tens of thousands of peasant farmers and nomad herders will starve. The eastern fifth of Ethiopia will turn into a dust bowl. Drought is affecting seven of the country's 14 provinces, where nearly two-thirds of the 26 million Ethiopians live. Some qualified observers say or more have starved to death, double the estimated toll less than a year ago and more than in the six-country West African drought. Says National Relief Commissioner Shimelis Adugna, 38, a social worker named by Ethiopia's new government this month to boss the drought-relief bureaucracy: "The government has given me a free hand, and I intend to act swiftly. Even if there is no rain, I think we will be able to avert further major loss of life." Aid personnel say the tons of relief grain needed for 1974 is assured. But foreign relief experts and many Ethiopians think the odds are stacked against against the estimated three million Ethiopians that are going hungry. Aid so far appears to have reduced the visible human effects of the drought in some areas. But a Western relief expert who has travelled widely in Ethiopia says another wave of starvation that would dwarf the 1973. crisis may develop within two months. "Nothing has been done in Harrarge although the govern- ment knew the situation months ago. The government doesn't have the transport to handle even the grain on hand. It's going to have to rain wheat to save these people." NEVER DRINKS The tiny kangaroo rat of the desert lives its whole life without taking a drink. It obtains water through digestion of air-dried seeds. Report on Nixon homes 'political witchhunt9 WASHINGTON (AP) A House of Representatives subcommittee's report that million in taxpayer money has been spent on President Nixon's homes "is absolutely the subcommittee's senior Republican member said Friday. The Republican, Representative John Buchanan of Alabama, charged a "political witchhunt" and accused subcommittee Democrats of dis- tortion and unfairness in the report approved Thursday on the president's homes in San Clemente and Key Biscayne. The White House earlier called the report a deliberate deception. What began as a subcommittee investigation on government spending on all presidents' homes, Buchanan said at a news conference, "has degenerated into the worst political witchhunt that 1 have seen in all my time in Congress." Chairman Jack Brooks (Dem. disclosed brief highlights of the report Thursday before his government activities sub- committee approved it on a straight 6-to-4 party line vote. Brooks told reporters he does not consider the report a shocker, but rather a delineation of facts that came out during his subcommittee's public hearings in October. The report makes no accusations against Nixon, Buchanan said.
