WASHINGTON (UPI) Shifting further
away from nuclear power, the
administration said Thursday it is canceling
all contracts for a plutonium breeder reactor
and adding $37.5 million to the budget for
conservation, solar power, coal and
President Carter, however, ended a 1974
ban on government sales of reactor fuel at
home and abroad and called for a new,
uranium enrichment program to create such
Energy officials said the nation will need
between 300 and 400 atomic power plants by
the end of the century, more than five times
the number now in use, but 100 fewer than
the Ford administration predicted last year.
The President's new spending plan for
fiscal 1978 would add $4.5 million to
conservation research, $12 million to coal
and natural gas programs, $10 million to
solar heating and solar electric efforts, and
$10 million for heating homes with
It also would provide $1 million for a one
year study of the environmental impact
caused by increasing amounts of carbon
dioxide from burning fossil fuels.
Money for those increases would be
provided by a $176 million cut in nuclear
spending, including the indefinite
cancellation of the breeder reactor
demonstration and of programs related to
the reactor fuel cycle.
The revisions to Carter's spending plans
for fiscal 1978, the second set of changes he
has ordered in energy programs since taking
office, reflected the new emphasis of strict

Look, but don 't eat
By KAREN MILLERS
THE TITLE OF Jean Kerr's book Please
Don't Eat the Daisies can be a legitimate
warning to people who get a sudden hunger
for daisies or other plants plentiful in spring.
Ox-eye daisies are known to poison cows
when eaten in sufficient quantities, resulting
in tainted flavors in milk and milk products
and in reduced quantities of milk. They also
can be poisonous to humans.
Last week Dr. Shirley Osterhout, director
of the Poison Control Center at Duke
University, warned that many plants
common this time of year can be poisonous if
eaten. She said 200 persons were
hospitalized in the past year from eating
parts of poisonous plants, and she
particularly cautioned parents of young
children about possible dangers.
Dr. Arthur McBay, chief toxicologist for
the UNC medical examiner's office and
professor of pharmacy, said he does not see
poisoning from plants as a problem.
wWe have more kids sniffing airplane
cement. We have more kids drinking
alcohol," McBay said. He said he knew of no
deaths of children from plant poisoning,
stressing that physicians are especially
thorough in determining the cause of death
in young children.
"That's our business," he said. "We're not
missing them (cases of poisoning)."
McBay said he did know of one case in the
past several years of a young man who died
after eating Jimson-weed seeds. However,
his death was not purely accidental, because
he was deliberately collecting the seeds.
"He was trying to get a high," McBay said.
Normally, the leaves, flowers and fruits of
the Jimson-weed can cause dermatitis or
irritation of the skin similar to that caused by
Ritchie Bell, professor of botany at UNC,
agreed that poisoning from plants is a rare
"People get struck by lightning, too, but
that doesn't mean they should stay in bed,"
He said poison ivy creates the worst
problems among poisonous plants. His
advice was to "look, but don't eat." , . .
For those who still have an urge to chew
on a plant, some they should try to avoid are
lilies-of-the-valley, larkspurs, foxgloves,
English ivy and narcissus.
A few that cause dermatitis and shouldn't
even be handled are Jacks-in-the-pulpit,
hemp, asparagus, wild carrot and some types
of primroses and buttercups.

WASHINGTON(UPI) Budget Director
Bert Lance put a relatively modest price tag
on President Carter's controversial national
energy package Thursday, saying it might
cost the government $7 billion to $ 1 5 billion,
total, through 1985.
It was the first official estimate of what the
plan might add to federal spending, and
Lance said he expected about $1.2 billion to
$2.6 billion of that expense would occur in
the fiscal year that begins in October.
A Treasury official said most of the $7
billion to $15 billion would be spent
stockpiling the billion-barrel emergency
crude oil reserve Carter wants established.
That amount would hardly dent the
federal budget, but Capitol Hill reaction to
Carter's proposals suggests his grand design
for enforced energy conservation will face
tough sledding at any price.
Republicans began zeroing in on the hard
hitting unpopular taxation features and the
uneven economic impact on various
geographic regions. Some Democrats did
the same, and even the favorable comments
had the flavor of faint praise.
House Speaker Thomas O'Neill professed
"wholehearted" support for the program
Carter outlined in a televised address to
Congress Wednesday night. But he added:
"The only thing I've got to say is he's going to
have to give us some help along the line."
The House began setting up special
machinery to deal with Carter's proposals,
and anticipated Republican counter
proposals by establishing a bipartisan "ad
hoc Committee on Energy" to coordinate the
work of committees with jurisdiction over
various parts of the package.
In the Senate, Democratic leader Robert
Byrd said he would make passage of some
sort of energy bill based on Carter's
proposals top priority for this session on
Congress. But Republican leader Howard
Baker said it was "by no means certain"
Congress could produce so comprehensive,
and controversial a bill before the
adjournment scheduled for October.
Baker asserted Carter's call for punitive
taxation of gasoline consumption, fuel
guzzling cars, domestic crude and other
items would impose $70 billion in new taxes.
"1 don't think the people will accept that,"
Carter himself had only a one-line
comment for reporters at the White House.
"I think we'll get it passed."
Lance, chatting with reporters at the
Treasury Department, said the Council of
Economic Advisers has estimated that the
inflationary impact of Carter's energy
package would be lA or lA of one percentage
point per year for the first four years the
higher figure if Congress approves the
nickel-a-gallon annual gasoline tax, and the
lower one if it does not.
Of all the provisions in the package, that
seemed to have the least chance of becoming
In the article Tuesday dealing with
communes in the Chapel Hill area, the Daily
Tar Heel incorrectly identified The Way as a
commune. The Way is an International
Biblical Research and Teaching Ministry,
with fellowships that meet in communities
and college campuses around the country.
There are two fellowships that meet in
Chapel Hill. Six of the members are students
at UNC and live together in one house.
"We're a group of students with a common
interest in Christian living and Biblical
teaching," Susan Schoenheit, a member of
The Way, said.
"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?
Psalms 2 and Acts 4:25
THE VOICE OF RETRIBUTION: "FOR I THE LORD THY
GOO AM A JEALOUS GOO, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF
THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN UNTO THE. THIRD
AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME:
AND SHOWING MERCY UNTO THOUSANDS OF THEM
THAT LOVE ME, AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS." From
the Second Commandment, Exodus 20:5, 6.
Perilous it is indeed to a man's well being in this life to
his peace, his reputation, his best Interest to do wrong.
Possibly the wrong doer may not suffer himself, yet most
certainly his children, and his children's children will pay the
penalty of his misdeeds. Man is undoubtedly so constituted,
whether regard be had to his physical, social, intellectual,
and moral nature, as to make him a happy being. The right,
the unperverted use of all his powers and susceptibilities
would not fall to secure to him a high and continual state of
earthly happiness and prosperity. And not only Is the human
machine Itself so fitted up as to accomplish such an end, but
the whole external world, the theater In which man has to
live, act, and enjoy, is fitted up In beautiful harmony with the
same benevolent end. Every Jar of human happiness, every
arrest or curtailment or extinction of It, Is the fruit of
transgression or perversion. The violation of a natural law is
as sure to be followed by retribution as the violation of a
Divine Law. The history of Individuals, families, com
munities, nations, Is full of such retributions!
The domestic peace and prosperity of the good old
patriarch Jacob was sadly marred. He is compelled to
- become, at an early age, an exile from his father's house to
, flee before the aroused wrath of his brother to suf for a long
oppression and wrong in the family of Laban, his kinsman;
and no sooner Is he relieved from these domestic afflictions,
than suddenly he Is bereaved of his favorite wife Joseph Is
violently torn from his embrace by his own sons and at
length Benjamin, the only, object on which the affections of
the aged father seemed to repose, must be yielded up to an
uncertain destiny, and his cry is heard: "All these things are
David was a good man, yet he sinned a great sin. And his
sin was of a domestic character. And how grievously was he
afterward afflicted in his domestic relations. His subsequent
history remains the sad memorial: The Voice of God an
nounced, The sword shall never depart from your house!"
His son Amnon raped his half-sister Tamar. Absalom, her
brother killed Amnon! Later on Absalom usurped his father's
throne and drove him out, etc., etc. Yet David was a "man
after God's heart" a man after God's heart in the way he
repented and accepted the severe Judgment of God, remin
ding one of the words of Job: "Yea, though He slay me, yet
will I trust Him!"
Pilate vacillating between the monitions of conscience
and a miserable time serving policy, delivered up Jesus to be
crucified. He believed Him to be Innocent; yet that his own
loyalty to Caesar might not be suspected, he did violence to
his conscience and condemned the innocent He must
secure his friendship of Caesar, though It be at the expense
of the most appalling crime. 8 ut how miserably he failed; and
there was in the retribution which followed a striking fitness
of the punishment to the crime. He hesitated at nothing to
please his imperial master at Rome. Yet but two years
afterward he was banished by this same emperior Into a dis
tant province, where, in disgrace and abandonment, and
with a burden on his conscience which was as the "burning
steel, he put an end to an existence which was too wretched
to be borne"!
