WASHINGTON (P)-A cam-
paign by dissidents to disrupt
the Army and draw large num-
bers of soldiers into antiwar
activities has fizzled so far,
Army officials said Tuesday.
They claimed efforts to get
many servicemen to join protest
demonstrations during what
was called "National GI Week"
just before election "didn't get
off the ground."
"The antiwar people distri-
buted a few leaflets around
Army posts, but nobody paid
attention to, them," one officer
Officials said that the last
six months have seen an inten-
sification of "dissident-type

"It could be a problem, but
not yet," officials said.

To date, the matter has been
left in the hands of local com-
manders, who have authority
to declare off limits any places
where activities harm the mo-
rale or well-being of troops.
Last summer, the Army began
checking on three coffee houses
sponsored by antiwar groups.
They were the UFO at Co-
lumbia, S.C., near Ft. Jackson,
the Mad Anthony at Wayne-
ville, Mo., near Ft. Leonard
Wood and Oleo Strut at Killeen,
Tex., near Ft. Hood.
"The commanders took a look
at these places and decided they
were not so significant as to re-
quire calling attention to them
nationally by declaring them off
limits," Army officials said.
"We would be concerned if
there was any real campaign to
encourage desertion, for exam-
ple," one officer said.

CODE OF ETHICS:
91st enate first to demand
disclosure of outside income
WASHINGTON ()- The new
Senate convening in January
will be the first whose members
have to make even a partial
disclosure of their outside
sources of income.
Under a code of ethics incor-
poratedrinto the Senate rules
last March, the first financial
reports will have to be filed by
next May 15.
The disclosure requirements,
developed by the Select Com-
mittee on Standards and Con-
duct-the ethics committee-
grew out of the cases of Sen.
Thomas J. Dodd (D-Conn.), and
Robert G. "Bobby" Baker, for-
mer secretary to the Senate's
Dodd was censured by the
Senate in June 1967 after a
finding by fellow senators that
he had used at least $116,083
in political funds for personal
Baker, who became a millon-
aire while on the Senate pay-
roll, was convicted in January
1967 of income tax evasion,
theft and conspiracy. He has
Under the new code of ethics,
two types of financial reports
must be filed each year by all
members of the Senate and by
Senate officials and employes
whose salary is over $15,000 a
year. Aides to individual se-na-
tors are included in its pro-
A confidential statement, in-
cluding a copy of the federal
income tax return for the pre-
ceding year and a listing of
assets, liabilities, client fees,
gifts and other data, must be
filed in a sealed envelope with
the comptroller general.
The other report, to be filed
with the secretary of the Senate
and to be available for public in-
spection, must list contributions
received during thepreceding
year and the use to which they,
are put. It also must give the
amount and the source of each
honorarium of $300 or more.
The code sets out specific
limits on the contributions a
senator may accept and the use
he may make of them.
It provides that a senator or
a candidate for the Senate may
accept a contribution from a
fund-raising event in his behalf
if he expressly gave his approv-
al for the event and receives a
complete accounting of the
source, amounts and disposition
of the money.
Similarly, he may accept a
contribution from an individual
or an' organization if he ac-
counts for it completely.
Contributions also may be ac-
cepted from a political party
even if the funds were raised at
an event for which he did not
give his express approval, pro-
vided the event was sponsored
by the party to raise money for
Except for campaign ex-
penses, contributions may be
used only for specifically desig-
nated expenses related to the
operation of a senator's office.
The confidential statements
to be filed with the comptroller
general must include not only
income tax returns but also all
fees of $1,000 or more from
clients, business connections,
property interests of over $10,-
000, beneficial interests in trusts
with a value of more than $5,000
and gifts of $50 or more.
These financial statements
are to be kept sealed by the
comptroller general unless the
bipartisan ethics committee, by
majority vote, requests access
Within a reasonable time aft-
er that, the senator or employe
involved must be told of the na-
ture and scope of the inquiry
into his affairs.
The rules also provide that a
sealed report may be first open-
ed and examined only by mem-
bers of the committee in ex-

Students initially said they would prolong the three-day
old strike for 24 hours however. The strike had been scheduled
to end yesterday evening, but after a late compromise yester-
day students said the strike would end at noon today.
NORTH VIETNAMESE TROOPS attacked a U.S.
camp north of Saigon yesterday in their second strike
within a week.
The attacks apparently reinforced the view that fighting
in South Vietnam will continue regardless of what goes on
at peace negotiations in Paris.
Officials said it was likely that yesterday's attack and a
Nov. 14 assault were reactions against the allies closing in on
Viet Cong bases along infiltration routes to Saigon.
The South Vietnam government said it sent a letter of
protest to the International Control Commission calling on
it to condemn North Vietnam for the attacks.
ITALY'S.CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS appealed for
quick formation of a new cabinet yesterday to end the
country's government crisis.
Party Secretary Mariano Rumor, considered the likeliest
man for premier, told the party's national congress the es-
sential thing is "to get moving." He asked for an end to in-
decision and for "serious and constructive dialogue with the

AN ESTIMATED 78 men trapped deep in a West Vir-
ginia coal mine have little hope of being rescued.
Leslie Ryan, inspector at large for the West Virginia De-
partment of Mines, said there is "not a chance in the world"
to save the miners who were trapped after a chain of explos-
ions rocked the mine early yesterday morning.
Heat, fire and smoke prevented rescuers from entering
the shafts where workers reported a dangerous rise in the
concentration of methane gas.
COMMUNIST STUDENTS in Calcutta demonstrated
yesterday against' Robert S. McNamara, world bank pres-
Students and police clashed at the airport when McNa-
mara, former secretary of defense, landed. Demonstrators
also set fire to three trolley cars and a shop near Calcutta
University and paraded through the streets shouting "Go
back McNamara. Hangman McNamara go to hell."
Students hurled stones at the police during the demon-
strations, and took refuge on the roofs of university buildings.
Officials reported more than 60 pers.ons including several
senior police officers were injured in the fighting.
ITALIAN STUDENTS battled police yesterday in
front of Turin University.
Demanding basic university reforms, students tried to
break through police cordons surrounding the school. At least
30 persons were injured in the ensuing fight and twenty stu-
dents were arrested.
Authorities said this was the worst clash in the demon-
strations which began four days ago.
