    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Pat Nixon has this bit of advice for the
nation's football widows:
    ''Get in there and join your husband; that's what I do.''
    Mrs. Nixon took part in the Tournament of Roses parade here Monday
before attending the Rose Bowl game in which the University of
Southern California beat Ohio State University 42-17.
    She told newsmen that, when the President, who is an avid football
fan, is prevented by his busy schedule from seeing a game, ''I make
it a practice to try to keep up with what is happening so I may fill
him in.''
    NEW YORK (AP) - Comedian Imogene Coca has undergone surgery for
partial face reconstruction and an injured right eye following a
Florida auto accident.
    Miss Coca, onetime television comedy partner of Sid Caesar, was
flown here from Florida for the operation at the Manhattan Eye,
Ear and Throat Hospital.
    Doctors termed the operation Monday a ''success.'' They said
''results were excellent and the prognosis is good.''
    MILAN, Italy (AP) - Countess Wally Toscanini, daughter of the late

    Police said Monday that the countess was in Venice at the time
of the robbery.
    HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Actor Edward G. Robinson, 79, is reported in

dives, clinched the national college football championship with a
42-17 victory over Ohio State in the Rose Bowl Monday.
    Cunningham plunged over Ohio State's defenses from inside the two
yard line all four times as the Trojans snapped a 7-7 halftime tie
and went on for the convincing triumph.

 Pat Nixon Bjt 350
AP Special Correspondent
    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Pat Nixon had some bowl day advice Monday
for those millions of housewives frustrated by husbands who keep
glued to the television screens for the weekend and holiday football
    ''They should get right in there and join him - that's what
I do,'' the First Lady said in an informal interview during a visit
here to attend the Rose Bowl game between her alma mater, Southern
California, and Ohio State.
    The President's wife said there were misconceptions about how much
football Nixon gets to see.
    ''He loves football - and so do I,'' she said. ''But he usually
works while he watches and there are constant interruptions. When he
has to go to the telephone, I make it a practice to try to keep up
with what is happening so I may fill him in.''
    Mrs. Nixon flew in Sunday night from Camp David, where the
President watched his favorite Washington Redskins and the Miami
Dolphins win their way into the Super bowl. She checked into the
Pasadena hotel which is the Ohio State headquarters.
    ''Going up an elevator I heard all those Ohio State people
talking about the game and predicting what they were going
to do to Southern Cal,'' she said. ''It was all I could do
to keep my mouth shut.''
    ''But today I'll be cheering my lungs out for the Trojans.''
    Mrs. Nixon, who was graduated from the Southern California's
School of Education in 1937, rode in the Rose Bowl parade behind
the Southern Cal band and in front of the Trojan float. She
was escorted by Dr. John Hubbard, Southern California president,
and Mrs. Hubbard.
    ''I am sure we will win,'' Mrs. Nixon predicted before the game.
    The President's wife acknowledged that if one doesn't like
sports, one might get lonesome around the White House.
    ''Take Julie, for instance. She has to look at a lot of baseball,''
Mrs. Nixon said, referring to her younger daughter, Mrs. David
    ''David, you know, is wild about baseball.''
    And the President? While his wife prepared to watch the Rose Bowl,
Nixon was entertaining at the White House. His guest Redskins
Coach George Allen and his family.

New Year Roundup 350
    The New Year came one second late for revelers around the world
this year as observatories adjusted their clocks to more precise
alignment with the earth's rotation.
    Not many noticed the extra second, of course, but Russell Brown was
in a quandary.
    Brown presides over the annual lowering of the illuminated ball on
the Allied Chemical Tower in Manhattan's Times Square, the symbol
for millions of American television viewers of the passing of the
old year.
    ''God forbid anything should go wrong in the world for a full
second,'' he said, laughing. ''But 11:59:61 is going to look very
funny at the bottom of everybody's TV screen, right?''
    Celebrations by ordinary citizens around the world today were
expected to coincide at times with New Year's messages for 1973 from
heads of state.
    Many Chinese were to spend the day in movie houses, watching a
color documentary film on the meeting of Chairman Mao Tse-tung and
Mrs. Nguyen Thi Binh, the Viet Cong's chief negotiator at the Paris
peace talks.
    Calls for an end to war in 1973 were heard from such heads of state
as Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin, who demanded ''the earliest
signing by the United States of an agreement on a cease-fire and
restoration of peace in Vietnam.''
    Indonesian President Suharto called on all ''disputing parties''
in Vietnam to eschew violence in favor of ''good will and honesty.''
    Denmark's young Queen Margrethe had a special New Year's message
for Danes, her first since succeeding to the throne after her
father's death last January.
    In light of the Vietnam bombing halt Saturday, she said in her
message: ''The news of the last 24 hours leads us to hope that peace
may now finally come to that unfortunate country.''
    Meanwhile, many Americans planned to spend the day in front of
television sets watching the traditional Tournament of Roses parade
and the Rose Bowl football game matching Ohio State and the
University of Southern California.

    In Taipei, President Chiang Kai-shek of the Nationalist Chinese
regime on Taiwan reiterated his call for recovering mainland
China, which the Communists have ruled since 1949.
    The 85-year-old Chiang said the Communist leaders on the
mainland are ''not really Chinese but only appear to be.''
    Israel began the new year by boosting pensions $2.50 to $29
a month for the elderly and setting controls on basic food,
drink, medicine, haircut, taxi and kindergarten prices. Prices
on cigarettes and cars were freed from controls. In Rome,
celebrating Italians ran out of supplies of the traditional
fireworks they like to pitch from open windows.
    Police had seized large quantities of explosives in a drive

Rose Parade 220
    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Mrs. Richard M. Nixon and actor John Wayne
head the cast for today's 84th annual Rose Parade, which is expected
to draw one million persons and a worldwide television audience of
300 million.
    Parade-watchers, many of them vacationing college students here for
the Rose Bowl football game between Southern California and Ohio
State, started jockeying for curb space to watch the parade as early
as Friday.
    Hundreds traditionally see in New Year's on the curbs - some
bringing sleeping bags and portable heaters to make the sub-50
degree night temperatures easier to take.
    The weatherman promised a midday temperature in the 60s.
    Wayne was chosen grand marshal in keeping with the ''movieland''
theme of the parade, officially known as the Tournament of Roses.
Mrs. Nixon will ride in the parade with Dr. John Hubb
rd, president
of the University of Southern California.
    Since the event is known for its use of fresh flowers, Southern
California's recent December heat wave posed a problem - causing
chyrsanthemums to bloom prematurely.
    The solution?
    ''We had to bring in a lot of colored mums from Florida,'' said
the co-owner of one of the parade's major float-building firms.

Rose Parade Lead a008
    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Mrs. Richard M. Nixon and actor John Wayne
head the cast for today's 84th annual Rose Parade, which is expected
to draw one million persons and a worldwide television audience of
300 million.
    High winds delayed positioning of the parade's 59 floats.
    Winds with gusts up to 45 miles per hour were forecast for
parade time, but forecasters said the gusts should subside
later in the morning.
    The first floats were supposed to be in position at 9 p.m.
Sunday, but the move was postponed because builders feared
the wind might wither flowers or even topple floats. The first
float was finally moved into position at 10:15 p.m.
    Violence broke out while thousands spent the night on the
parade route. A 33-year-old man was stabbed to death in one
incident, and, in a second incident, 18 to 20 youths were booked
for assault against an officer or assault with a deadly weapon
following what officers termed a ''miniriot.''
    The dead man was identified as James K. Marshall of Bellflower,
Calif. Police said he was stabbed by five or six youths about
2:30 a.m. and died several minutes later at Huntington Memorial
    In the second incident, officers said they were pelted with
rocks and bottles when they answered a disturbance. When they
tried to arrest two youths, officers said, they were ''ganged''
by others at the scene. Three ofifcers suffered slight injuries.
