FILIPINO YOUTHS stormed the U.S. embassy in Manila
to protest American imperialism.
Earlier yesterday a rally involving between 15,000 and 20,000
students, laborers and farmers was held in downtown Manila.
After the five-hour program, reportedly led by a group called'
Nationalist Youths, 2,000 demonstrators marched to the embassy.
Hurling stones, sticks and fire bombs, they entered the embassy
compound and shattered windows in the main office building before
U.S. Marine guards dispersed them.
Police did not come to the embassy until about an hour after the
disturbance started.
U.S. Ambassador Henry Byroade, who was absent from the com-
pound at the time of the attack, assailed the lack of police protection.
He called Filipino President Ferdinan E. Marcos to request police aid
after hearing about the disorder.
No one inside the embassy was injured by the attack,
U.S. B-52 BOMBERS flew in support of Laotian ground forces
for the first time.
Informed sources in Saigon said that for 36 hours ending early
yesterday all B-52 strikes in South Vietnam were suspended and about
60 planes were sent against both North Vietnamese targets in the
Plain of Jars area and enemy supply bases in eastern Laos.
U.S. bombers have previously attacked the Ho Chi Minh trail
in eastern Laos.
Attacks on Laotian airfields caused the B-52 attacks.
At Xieng Khouang airfield the North Vietnamese attacked for the
second time in six days. In the Laotian capital, Vientiane, this was in-
terpreted as heralding the start of the dry season offensive.
Long Cheng airfield was attacked for the first time since it became
a supply base for troops on the Plain of Jars.
Sources said 36 North Vietnamese were killed at Long Cheng and
government casualties were light.
step towards easing tensions with East Germany.
Brandt accepted an invitation from East German Premier Willy
Stoph to meet with him in East Berlin. The decision was made after
consultations with the three Western allies, the United States, Britain
and France.
If held, the meeting would be the first between the chiefs of
the two German governments since the country was divided at the
end of World War II.
PRESIDENT NIXON'S welfare revision and extension will

Since Congress reconvened in January, the committee has con-
sidered the plan in closed session.
Sources close to the panel said the original unfavorable reaction
to the Nixon plan has been replaced by a mixture of attitudes among
members that will probably add up to a favorable majority. A vote
is expected within two weeks.
The biggest innovation in the administration proposal is exten-
sion of the welfare system to provide a minimum income for an
estimated 15 million of the "working poor"-families whose bread-
winners have either regular or intermittent jobs but do not earn
enough to bring their famllies above the poverty level.

BIG-FOUR EFFORTS to establish a Mideast cease-fire may
soon collapse.
Official word reaching Western capitals from Moscow indicates
the Russians will oppose the American proposal for a cease-fire be-
cause they feel it equates what Moscow considers Israeli aggression
with Arab defensive measures.f
For several months diplomats from the United States, Britain,
France and Russia have met to ease tensions in the Middle East.

OPTIMISTIC TESTIMONY on Vietnamese pacification met
both encouragement and skepticism from a Senate committee.
John P. Vann, head of the pacification program in the Mekong
Delta, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the program has
begun to meet its objectives.
Vann said the pacification program has gained popular support
since 1968 by providing better security in the countryside. This has
forced the enemy to rely on North Vietnamese troops rather than
on South Vietnamese recruits, Vann said.
Committee chairman J. William Fulbright (D-Ark) said reports
of progress were encouraging but past events made him skeptical.
But Sen. Clifford P. Case (R-NJ) said he was impressed by Vann's5

tPresident presents first State
of World address to Congress
WASHINGTON (M - President Nixon yesterday told Con-
gress in his first State of the World message that Russia's
growing force of intercontinental nuclear missiles has created
"a serious threat to our retaliatory capability."
Nixon presented his proposed expansion of the Safeguard
ballistic missile defense program as the best immediate re-
sponse to the Soviet build-up.
He also expressed hope that eventually he could nego-
3 tiate a limitation or reduction of nuclear missiles with Russia.
By the end of this year, Nixon reported, Russia will have
an estimated 1,590 missiles capable of reaching the American
*~mainland against an estimated 1,710 for the United States.
Five years ago, in mid-1965, he said, Russia had only 331 such
missiles to 1,398 for the Unitedy

blackmail, or acts which could es-

Nixon a l s o announced during

He said the United States re-

Although a breakthrough in the
talks could "come with little

The President said the United

AMHERST, Mass. (P) - About
200 black students, saying there
is a "meaningless dialogue" be-
tween the students and the Am-
herst College administration, seiz-
ed five campus buildings yester-
day and demanded the right to
"determine our own programs,
policies and direction."
The programs alluded to in the
demand concerned what the black
students feltwas an administra-
tion promise for a black studies
department with a full time black
The possibility of such a de-
partment was discussed during a
one-day moratorium on the cam-
pus last spring. Two black studies
courses have been instituted.
Prosser Gifford. dean of t h e
faculty, issued a statement, saying
that the college was ready to meet
with spokesmen for the black stu-
A subsequent statement, issued
by a group of sympathizing white
students, said the takeover makes
necessary "a meaningful response,
not just from the administration,
but from students and faculty as
well. This event clearly demon-
strates that this community has
not yet given sufficient attention
to theconcerns of black students."
Classes continued as scheduled

however, when a proposed student
strike in support of the blacks
failed to gain momentum.
Campus police briefly closed off
the campus to outside students,
but left their posts as morning
classes began.
The students occupied the Rob-
ert Frost Library, the Science
Center, Converse Hall, the admin-
istration building, the black cul-
tural center and the school finan-
cial office building.

WASHINGTON () -- The Sen-
ate voted yesterday to require
equal enforcement of school de-
segregation. throughout the land,
giving the Deep South a major
civil rights victory.
In the climax to a week of of-
ten bitter debate, the Senate ap-
proved 56 to 36 a proposal spon-
sored by S e n. John C. Stennis
(D-Miss.) that opponents charged
will halt the march to fully.de-
segregated schools.
It would require uniform deseg-
regation action in the North and
South alike.
The vote followed two attenpts
at Republican compromise and 'a
new communication from the
White House that both' sides,
claimed as support.
Rejected in the late hours, 48
to 46, was a proposed substitute
by Sen. Hugh Scott (R-Pa.) which
Southerners said would leave vir-
tually u n t o u c h e d widespread

The defeat of t h e substitute
came after the White House: had
sent word it favored the Scott
proposal over Stennis' language.
The vote marked a mayor vic-
tory for the Southerners in their
drive to blunt the push now on
in their region to end the last
vestiges of legal dual school sys-
It apparently meant that the
Senate would adopt the Stennis
amendment as a rider to a fed-
eral aid to education bill.
The Stennis amendment seeks
to require that the government

Southerners had made it clear
they hoped the Stennis amend-

parents with the same type of
pressure for cross-city busing to

The result, they predicted,
would be a slowing down' of the
school integration drive.n
The Scott substitute also called
for a uniform national policy on
school desegregation.
