port for his nomination to the Supreme Court.
Sen. John Sherman Cooper (R-Ky), stated that he will vote for
Carswell's confirmation and against recommitting the nomination to
the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The Nixon administration also made public yesterday a telegram
supporting Carswell signed by 11 of the 18 judges sitting on the U.S.
Fifth Court of Appeals with him. The telegram expressed confidence
in Carswell" from the standpoint of integrity, fairness, and ability."

Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled for April 6; and opponents
of the nomination claim 39 Democratic votes, in favor of recommittal.
A BOMB exploded in a New York tenement yesterday, killing
one man and injuring a second.
According to fire officials, the home-made pipe bomb was
similar to those which demolished a Greenwich village town house
March 6, killing three members of the Weatherman faction of SDS.
Police said at least three unexploded bombs were also removed
from the tenement, which authorities described as "another bomb
Since explosions damaged three mid-town Manhattan sky-
scrapers March 12, police said they have investigated more than
2,000 bomb scores and have recovered 14 "bomb devices" in the city.
A PARAGUAYAN DIPLOMAT was freed yesterday by mem-
bers of a left-wing organization which' had kidnapped him.
Members of the Argentine Liberation Front, a small group of
militant leftists, held Waldemar Sanchez, a Paraguayan consul, as a
hostage for four days while they demanded the release of two political
prisoners held by the Argentine government. They released Sanchez
"for humanitarian reasons" without gaining the release of the
It was the first time a government has defied the demands of
groups of Latin American terrorists, who have kidnapped five other
diplomats since September, freeing all in exchange for the release
of political prisoners.
The Front had threatened to kill Sanchez if the prisoners were
not released.
AN EASTER PARADE in Northern Ireland erupted into a
fight between Roman Catholics and Protestants yesterday.
Police and troops quickly separated the rock-throwing factions in
Armargh, where the first Northern Ireland parade of the Easter
weekend took place. About 1,000 police and military had been stand-
ing guard when the skirmish broke out.
All police leave has been cancelled for the weekend, in antici-
pation of the 15 other parades scheduled in Northern Ireland today
and tomorrow.
CAMBODIA'S STATE RADIO yesterday called on all army
reservists and veterans to return to active duty.
The broadcast was a reaction to anti-government demonstrations
near Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capitol. The radio accused the -Viet
Cong of organizing the demonstrations "to come and trouble our
The political situation in Cambodia has been tense since Prince
Norodom Sihanouk was overthrown as head of state two weeks ago.
He is now in exile in Peking, forming a "liberation army."
The state radio also renewed a government appeal to the Viet
Cong and North Vietnamese to meet with a Cambodian delegation and
arrange for withdrawal of 40,000 North Vietnamese and 16,000 Viet
Cong troops on Cambodian border soil.

ISRAELI WARPLANES have been trying to halt installation
of Soviet-built anti-aircraft missiles in Egypt.
Yigal Allon, Israeli Deputy Prime Minister, said yesterday that
halting the installation is a "defensive necessity" for Israel.
It was the first public confirmation of Israel's attempts to prevent
installation of 15 Soviet-built SAMS missiles, which Egypt has re-
portedly received along with 1,500 Russian soldiers to help operate
the weapons.
Increased air activity over Egypt in the past week has indicated
Israel's objective. Israeli pilots have claimed to have knocked down
nine Egyptian MIG21's since Wednesday.

Official reactions were varied yesterday towards the first major
operation of South Vietnamese troops in Cambodia on Friday.
The troops, supported by U.S. helicopters, penetrated about two
miles into Cambodia's Kandal Province in a sweep of a known Viet-
cong sanctuary. They encountered about 300 North Vietnamese sold-
iers in a dense woods just across the border and by nightfall reported
that they had killed 53 and captured one.
Informed sources in Saigon said yesterday that South Vietna-
mese officers consulted with Cambodian officials before the attack.
In Washington, however, senior officials denied prior knowledge or

Airlines to
fight work
By The Associated Press
As traffic jams at a few key
airports intensified the impact of
a work stoppage by air traffic con-
trollers, the air line industry yes-
terday threatened a suit against
what it called an illegal strike.
Meanwhiledin another major
labor dispute, postal workers
agreed to a government request to
put off until tomorrow a bargain-
ing session originally scheduled
for yesterday.
The wage issue will be the only
one before the negotiators tomor-
row morning. After three days of
strenuous discussions last week,
Postmaster General W i n t o n
Blount agreed with the. unions
that other thorny problems, in-
cluding President Nixon's demand
for far-reaching postal reforms,
should be sidetracked until agree-
ment on the amount and timing
of salary increases.
Both sides talk of an early
settlement of the issues which
sparked wildcat strikes by postal
workers in major centers and sent
troops to man New York's City's
huge post office ten days ago.
However, the negotiators won't
be working against a firm settle-
ment deadline. One union head
said Friday there would be a re-
newed walkout if no agreement
was reached by Thursday, but the
parent ALF-CIO insisted that was
not the case.
In the air work stoppage, the
air controllers, represented by the
Professional Air Traffic Control-
lers Organization" (PATCO), face
a damage suit that the Air Trans-
port Association, representing the
nation's scheduled airlines, said it
would file tomorrow.
The government already has
obtainedgcourt orders against
PATCO officials who face a con-
tempt-of-court hearing this week.
However, air operations in the
New York and Chicago areas were
near paralysis yesterday in the
grip of the. w o r k stoppage by
PATCO, which is protesting what
it views as overwork, under-pay,
under-staffing and obsolete equip-
Unable legally to strike against
the government, the traffic con-
trollers in centers which direct
big jetliners between airports
have been reporting that th e y
were too ill to work. A number of
controllers who work in airport
towers also h a v e stayed away.
Many airports reported normal or
near-normal staffs but many of
those felt indirect effects of tie-
ups at Chicago and New York.
At the air traffic control center
at Islip, N.Y., which directs traf-
fic approaching the New York
City airports, 128 of the 143 con-
trollers scheduled to work Satur-
day called in sick.
In Chicago, t h e other major
trouble spot, only 63 per cent of
the air controllers reported for
work. Kansas City had only 51
per cent reporting.

University s e c u r it y proce-
dures, especially in d o r m s,
should be changed.
That's the report of the Uni-
versity Security Committee, a
group of housing officials and
students who have found that
thefts and other crimes in Uni-
versity housing have increased
substantially in the past few
Thefts of personal posses-
sions have been reported this
year by the residentsdirectors
of at. least ten dorms. Several
cases of assault were also re-
ported at Oxford Housing and
one case of armed robbery oc-
cured at Mosher Hall.
To insure adequate and uni-
form security, t h e committee
recommends that each dorm be
staffed with a trained security
man seven nights a week.
Otherrecommendations in-
clude the locking of all doors
other than the main entrance
at night, the preparation of a
security manual to be distrib-
uted to all present staff, and
the posting of more "No Tres-
passing" signs.
The report states that the
thefts appear w e 11 organized.
The committee believes many of
them are due "in large part to
persons who are not residents of
the dorm."
According to resident direct-
ors of Stockwell, Markley and
Couzens, a group of high school

girls swept across campus dur-
ing January stealing clothes and
The dorm living situation,
with open accessibility and
freedom of movement, presents
unique problems in security
maintenance according to sev-
eral resident directors.
One official at Stockwell
points to unlocked doors as an
important b r e a k in security.
Ruth Drey, who w o r k s at
Markley, feels that large coed
dorms are very hard to police.
"Whenever you have people
coming in and out it is almost
impossible to challenge them,"
she says.
Opinions vary as to the ef-
fect on theft of open visitation
policies. A resident director at
Jordan Hall believes that the
recently adopted twenty-four
hour opensvisitation policy has
not increased theft. However,
the Security Committee report
states that "open visitation
hours has aggravated the situa-
tion by making access to the
building much easier."
The Security Committee re-
port will now be submitted to
the office of University Hous-
ing and the Board of Gover-
nors of Residence Halls.
The Security Committee says
that the main problems n o w
facing the University will be
the hiring of qualified security
men and the securing of funds.
