with control of the Office of Stu-
dent Services (OSS).
Reacting to Fleming's letter,
Student Government Council last
night called the delay in appoint-
ing the new vice president an at-
tempt at "blackmail."
In a unanimous resolution, SGC
argued Fleming is trying to force
it to agree to the bylaw draft sup-
ported by the Regents by delaying
the appointment of a new vice
president.
The resolution added, "SGC wel-
comes the president's belated rec-
ognition that conflict and con-
frontation are the only way to
settle questions of principle and
states its willingness to meet him
on a field of battle of his own
choosing, preferably the Regents
meeting of Feb. 18-19."
SGC had already urged students
to disrupt Regents meetings if the
bylaw draft is not revised accord-
ing to student demands.
The disagreement over the na-
ture of OSS centers around a
number of changes the Regents
recently proposed in ~ a student-
faculty draft of the bylaws, in-
cluding:
-Revision of a section which
would give a student-faculty board
the authority to make policy bind-
ing on the vice president. The
regental draft provides for the
vice president and the board to
"jointly" set policy.
-Revision of a section which
would require the vice president
to obtain the approval of his policy
board when appointing directors
of the various units within 08.
Under the regental draft, the vice
president would be obligated to
seek the policy board's advice only:

breaking 15 month lull

SAIGON (A') - U.S. warplanes
blasted an enemy ihissile base
yesterday in the first outbreak of
aerial warfare over North Vietnam
since Lyndon Johnson halted the
bombing 15 months ago in the
last days of his presidency.
The base was hit in the midst
of action that cost the United
States a fighter-bomber and a
helicopter, the U.S. Command re-
ported. The copter was downed by
a North Vietnamese MIG; the
fighter-bomber was hit by ar anti-
aircraft shell.
In Paris, the North Vietnamese
delegation to the peace talks ac-
cused the United States of "a braz-
en provocation . . . by the Nixon
administration."}
In a reply a U.S. State Depart-
ment spokesman acknowledged
that reconnaissance planes a n d
accompanying protective craft fly
over North Vietnam but denied
that U.S. bombing of the North

guns and planes, a search for the
men is under way, the source said.
The U.S. Command turned aside
all inquiries, saying information on
aircraft losses outside South Viet-
nam must be cleared through
Washington.
Hanoi radio claimed U.S. war-
planes launched a series of at-
tacks deep inside North Vietnam
Wednesday and said three were
shot down.
Official sources conceded that the
FH105 was one of three fighter-

bombers on a mission in the vi-
cinity of North Vietnam's Mu
Gia Pass. The pass is at the head
of the Ho Chi Minh trail over
which Hanoi sends men and ma-
terials through Laos to support
the war in South Vietnam.
The sources did not know the
nature of the mission but said the
planes may have been attacking
surface to air-SAM-missile sites i
guarding the trail. They said some'
SAMs were fired at the planes but
these apparently missed. ,
