CAMBODIA DENIED yesterday that U.S. or South Vietnam-
ese forces have a right to pursue National Liberation Front (NLF)
or North Vietnamese forces into Cambodia.
A government statement said Cambodia will protest all violations
of Cambodian soil "by foreign armies, from whichever camp they
may be."
The White House disclosed Saturday that U.S. commanders in
South Vietnam are free to order troops into Cambodia in pursuit ofa
NLF or North Vietnamese forces during a battle, but no exercise
of this policy has ever been reported.

U.S. CASUALTIES in Vietnam soared yesterday and Wed-
nesday during a series of shellings and ground attacks.
The U.S. Command said the worst of. the fighting appeared to
be over. Incomplete reports said 61 Americans, 101 South Vietnamese
and 522 NLF and North Vietnamese troops were killed.
It was also reported yesterday that 79 Americans were killed
last week. With that battle toll, the number of Americans killed so
far in Vietnam rose to 41,136.

ISRAEL AND SYRIA fought a day-long air, tank and artillery

filtrations across the border this year.

It was uncertain whether Goldberg, a former Supreme Court
justice, Ambasador to the UN, and Secretary of Labor would accept
the designation. Members of his staff said he had prepared a state-

THE BEEF SUPPLY of the nation is critically short, a con-
gressional report said yesterday.
The report said the nation's meat supply is not keeping pace
with demand, and the result is higher retail prices. It suggested that
the basic import quota be adjusted each year according to estimated
demand as well as cattle production.
A "MARCH FOR VICTORY" is planned for Saturday in
Washington to challenge President Nixon to win the Vietnam
Dr. Carl McIntire, chairman of the march committee, predicted

"the Moratorium march and the entire hippie concept of immediate
and total withdrawal." Withdrawal is "surrender," McIntire said.

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - White Panther
leader J o h n Sinclair, sentenced
last August to 9%-10 years in
prison for possession of two mar-
ijuana cigarettes, was denied bail
again yesterday here in U.S. Dis-
trict Court.
Judge Fred W. Kaess ruled that
he had no jurisdiction to rule on
Sinclair's petition for freedom.
Sinclair has asked to be freed onj
bond while awaiting appeal of his
August conviction.
Justine Ravitz, Sinclair's at-
torneynhas filed an appeal brief
with the State Court of Appeals,
but no date has yet been set for
Ravitz also said that he will ap-
peal the denial of b a i 1 to the
Sixth Circuit Court.
In making h i s ruling, Kaess
noted that it. is not a Constitu-
tional right for a prisoner to re-
ceive bail after conviction - itl
is up to the discretion of the state
courts. The State Supreme Court,
with one dissenting, ruled that
Sinclair was not eligible for bail.
Kaess said that he did not want
to interfere with the discretion-
ary powers of the state courts,

and added that the Federal Dis-
trict Court would be flooded with
appeals similar to Sinclair's if he
were to free the White Panther
Over one hundred White Pan-
ther supporters showed up for the
trial, at which Sinclair had been
expected to make an appearance.
However, Sinclair had been re-
turned to Marquette prison after
having been transferred to South-
ern Michigan prison at Jackson
for his supposed appearance yes-
Kaess said he' did n o t know
why Sinclair was not present, but
ruled that his presence was not
necessary for the hearing.
Following Kaess' ruling, the
White Panther supporters moved
to the front steps of the Federal
building, where they waved White
Panther Party banners at passers-
by while chanting such slogans
as "Free John!"

The announcement gave no de-

W eifare
WASHINGTON () - The wel-
fare systems of 39 states failed
to meet federal standards com-
pletely as of Jan. 1, the welfare
department disclosed yesterday.
Some of the apparent violations
involved compliance with congres-
sional provisions and Supreme
Court decisions made as long as
three y e a r s ago enlarging the
rights of persons receiving publio
assistance. All of t h e states in
question hadnot met deadlines
for compliance.
Other violations were related to
more minor bureaucratic provis-
ions that do not affect the na-
tion's ten million welfare recip-
ients directly to any great extent.
The government's scorecard of
welfare compliance is current to
Jan. 1. The situation in s o m e
states may have changed in the
past three months, federal offic-
ials cautioned.
"Nevertheless, there are a num-
ber of states fighting us tooth and
nail," said one knowledgeable
welfare department official. "This
is a serious problem."
T h e National Welfare Rights
Organization; which has prodded
the government to insist on what
it terms law and' order in state
welf are regulation, called on the
welfare department to enforce its
new findings.
"It is one thing to list states
with flagrant abuses," said George
Wiley, executive director of the
organization that represents wel-
fare recipients. "It is another to
really bring individual states in
line with federal law."
