AN OFFER BY THE SOUTH VIETNAM GOVERNMENT
yesterday to return 343 sick and wounded prisoners to North
Vietnam was called "a farce" by the North Vietnamese.
The proposal, advanced at the Paris Peace Talks, was also
termed a ploy to steer attention away from the U.S. attempt to bring
the war to all of Indochina by the North Vietnamese.
Saigon had hoped that the gesture would be met with reciprocity
but the North Vietnamese called the prisoners "illegally arrested
patriots," and continued to blast U.S. presence in South East Asia.
A BILL which would allow private citizens and conservation
groups to sue public or private agencies for contributing to pol-
lution was sent yesterday to the floor of the state House of
The controversial bill, vehemently opposed by the state's major
industries and the state Chamber of Commerce, was approved by
the House Conservation Committee, and endorsed by the Milliken
The bill allows a court to grant temporary or permanent injunc-
tions against agencies' policies if they are determined to be causes
of "pollution, impairment or destruction" of the state's natural
The bill's current wording differs from the original bill proposed
by University law Prof. Joseph Sax in requiring the plaintiff, not
the defendant, to prove his case.

THE FOUR NATIONS that defeated Nazi Germany opened
a new round of talks on the status of Berlin yesterday.
The British, U.S., and French ambassadors to West Germany,
and the Soviet envoy to East Germany met for three hours in West
Berlin, and agreed to meet again April 28.
A communique issued after the meeting did not disclose the site
of future meetings, but it was understood that the dialogue would
continue in the old Allied Control Council building, in West Berlin.
NORTH VIETNAM AND THE VIET CONG closed their
embassies in Cambodia yesterday.
The closings came as Laotian and Cambodian officials expressed
fear that Hanoi may be expanding the Vietnam war throughout the
Prince Norodom Sihanouk, Cambodia's deposed chief of state
added to these fears, saying in Peking that he and Cambodians would
Join as a united front with the Laotians aqd Vietnamese to fight
"U.S. imperialists and their lackeys."
The Laotian Premier, Prince Souvanna Phouma, charged that
the current North Vietnamese offensive was prompted by a "desire
for hegemony by North Vietnam."
Air traffic slow
as strikes, snow
holld down planes
WASHINGTON (A)-- Getting from one place to another
by air was slow, but possible, 'for most Easter weekend trav-
elers yesterday - even though some key air traffic control-
lers elected to stay home.
There were not as many absentees in the flight control
centers on the second day of the controllers' demonstration
as there were the day before and there was an accompanying
reduction in cancellations and flight delays.
The controllers, members of the Professional Air Traffic
Controllers Association (PATCO) say they are overworked,
undermanned, underpaid and lack modern equipment. The
immediate dispute concerns transfers of three men from
Baton Rouge, La.

WASHINGTON (P) - Defec-

publicans and a surprise com-
mitment from a veteran South-
ern Democrat yesterday buoyed
hopes of senators seeking to
block confirmation of 0. Har-
rold Carswell as a Supreme

his freshman colleague from
Oregon, Sen. Robert W. Pack-
wood, disclosed in a statement
that he is prepared to v o t e
against confirmation of the 50-
year-old federal appeals court
judge from Tallahassee, Fla.
The Oregon senators disclos-
ed their stands a few hours af-
ter Sen. J. W. Fulbright of Ar-
kansas broke the thus-far solid
Southern support for Carswell
and told the Senate he will vote
for recommital - a move aimed
at killing the nomination.
The t h r e e announcements
raised to 32 the number of sen-
ators who oppose Carswell's
nomination. Forty senators have
announced support f o r Cars-

Opponents engineered t h e
move to try to send the nom-
ination back to committee Wed-
nesday after supporters failed
in their effort for a quick vote
on Carswell's nomination.
Only a few weeks ago, the
opposition felt Carswell's ap-
proval was a virtual shoo-in.
However, the list of negative
votes steadily grew in past
weeks as anti-Carswell forces
chipped away at what t h e y
called the judge's lackluster
But while these developments
boosted the growing hopes of
the anti-Carswell forces, their
jubilation was somewhat curb-

which officer did the clubbing."
The incident took place in front
of the Administration Bldg. March
Hamblin says he was in :the vi-
cinity of t h e Administration
Building and the Union driveway
taking pictures when a large num-
ber of protesters surrounded a po-
lice squad car and "about four
police officers" who had a black
student, Veronica Banks, in cus-
She had ,been picked up for al-
legedly throwing a brick through
a plate glass window.
Initially, the confrontation be-
tween the protesters and the po-
lice "was mainly a verbal thing,"
Hamblin asserts. However, after
some time had passed, Hamblin
says more police came from the
AdministrationB u i l d in g and
started directing people, away
from the surrounded squad car
and officers. "It was then that
t h e police began to 'solo'," he
claims. "They broke ranks and
started clubbing after they had
met some resistance."
"I then circled around to get a
better camera angle and suddenly
I felt a dull thud on the side of
my head and I went down on one
knee," Hamblin says. Although he
says he didn't see the policeman
in the act of clubbing him, Ham-
blin says he saw an officer stand-
ing over him when he got up. "I
managed to get a picture of him
but I'm not sure that that was
the same officer who clubbed
me," Hamblin explains.
Hamblin Claims that his press
credentials were in full view.
"When things got hot and heavy,
I pulled them out of my pocket
and put them between my teeth.
Its easy to yell 'press' that way,"
One major factor in disruptions
of service yesterday was a snow-
storm that dumped a foot of snow
on runways of Chicago's two air-
ports. At least 700 flights can-
celed at Chicago and this had as
much effect on the total system
as the absenteeism, which w a s
worse in New Y o r k, Cleveland,
Minneapolis and Oakland, Calif.
There was sharp disagreement
between the Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration and the government
over effectiveness of the strike.
John H. Shaffer, administrator of
the FAA, and F. Lee Bailey, at-
torney and executive director of
PATCO, held back-to-back news
Shaffer said 17 per cent of the
controllers reported sick Wednes-
day and 14 per cent yesterday and
that not a single air traffic fa-
cility was closed.
"I think you can see from these
figures t h a t those people who
have tried to shut- down the sys-
tem have fallen flat on their col-
lective faces,"he said. "Traffic is
moving - with some delays in
some parts of the country to be
sure - but it is moving."
Bailey displayed a map showing
what PATCO classes as danger
zones because of inadequate staf-
fing. The zones embraced virtual-
ly all major air traffic lanes and
all 21 air route traffic control
centers which are responsible for
spacing planes safely.
He said the map meant that
flying was hazardous in the prin-
cipal traffic zones of the United
States. At South Bend, Ind., he
said, two airliners narrowly miss-
ed collision because of inadequate
PATCO has long contended that
its ,members were overfatigued.
Bailey. told newsmen he had in-
structed chapters everywhere to
obey the federal court injunction
issued Wednesday against a strike,
but he said the government can-
not require controllers to work if
they are fatigued.
Shaffer added that after the
absenteeism is over, the FAA
won't talk with PATCO alone, be-
cause there are other unions that
represent the controllers.

WASHINGTON (/P) - T h e
chief negotiators on pay increases
and other benefits for the nation's
workers left the bargaining ses-
sions yesterday to consult separ-
ately with higher authorities.
Spokesmen declined to charact-
erize the action as indicating ei-
ther progress or deadlock, but
there had been forecasts earlier
that agreement could be reached
Postmaster Gen. Winton M.
Blount went from the conference
room to "consult with other offic-
ials of the administration," a
spokesman said. He did not rule
out the possibility 'that Blount
would call at the White House.
The chief negotiator for the
postal unions, James C. Gildea,
left to report to George Meany,
president of the AFL-CIO, and
Asst. Secretary of Labor W. J. Us-
ery went to confer with Secretary
of Labor George P. Shultz.
Other officials of the Post Of-
fice Department and the postal
union heads remained in session to
discuss what spokesmen described
as "technical problems."
Most of the troops which Presi-
dent Nixon had called in Monday
to help handle the mail-were start-
ed homeward and the Post Of-
fice Department declared the sit-
uation normal. There were s o m e
workers absent, as there always
are, officials said, but they were
not on strike.
Senate and House conferees
working on a new postal pay bill
agreed meanwhile to take no ac-
tion until negotiations between
Blount and representatives of the
postal unions produce a settle-
ment or break down.
"Any action we might take could
only warp or louse up the bar-
gaining downtown," said Rep.
Gale W. McGee (D-Wyo.), Chair-
man of the Senate Post-Office
Committee and head of the Sen-
ate conferees. "That is the only
reason for the delay."
The Pentagon announced that
the 2,700 regular military troops
and 15,000 of the 25,000 National
Guardsmen and reservists assign-
ed to help handle the mail are
being relieved of that duty.

To All Students and Teachers of French-Announcing the Most FAN-
TASTIC OFFER Ever Made for a FRENCH DICTIONARY in the United
To those of you who have been using various French dictionaries-some, perhaps, on
the basis of a name only, without regard to content, we are pleased to announce d
very special offer which will never again be repeated.
LE PETIT RO0BERtT
is considered to be the most outstanding dictionary of French language in the world
by many scholars. This very same book has been sold, until now, in the United States,
for $19.50. Its price in France is 80 francs, and if you were to order it directly from
France, you would wait about six weeks and would end up paying about $16.50, in-
NOW, for a limited time only-until June 15, 1970-in order to introduce this fan-
tastic French dictionary to American teachers and students of French, we are offer-
ing it at the unheard of price of $9.95. You may order as masy copies as you wish,
remembering that after the 15th or June, the price will be raised to $1.3.95. And even
at $13.95, LE PETIT ROBERT will still cost you less than it does anyone in France.
Because of this incredibly low price, all orders must be accompanied by payment,
adding 50 cents for the first book, and 35 cents for each copy additional. Taxes
should be added where applicable.
