Report Turk Air
Raid on Cyprus
Turkey Issues Denial; Greek Navy
Mobilized; Makarios To Go to UN
By The Associated Press
NICOSIA-The Greek Cypriot government charged four Turkish
air force sabre jets attacked Polis village and hit an Italian ship
there yesterday, but Turkey firmly denied it.
The Turkish government said its planes flew over the embattled
eastern Mediterranean island yesterday .and would be back today,
for reconnaissance, but insisted no bullets were fired.
On being told in Athens that Turkey had attacked Cyprus,
Greek foreign minister Stavros Costopoulos said:

The Office of Student Affairs
has asked Student Government'
Council to clarify the procedures
involved in scheduling and approv-
ing student-sponsored events.
Requesting the clarification,
John Feldkamp of the OSA said
yesterday he, believes SGC does
not understand that it has the
final say in approving events.
But in the meantime, Feldkamp
is informing all student organiza-
tions with -events planned for the
fall that SGC still has to approve
The confusion stems from the
fact that before an organization
can put on an event, it must go
through a two-step process -
scheduling and approval. First, the
event must be assigned a date
which doesn't conflict with other
student events or vacation periods.
Second, it must be approved for
its purpose, planning and fi-
Last December, Council set up
a University Calendaring Commit-
tee in most 'ambiguous terms,
Feldkamp reports after a thorough
perusal of SGC minutes.
T h e student-faculty-adminis-
trator committee, according to
Feldkamp's interpretation, appears
to have been empowered to carry
out "scheduling" functions-as-
signing time, place and date to
student as well as non-student
He feels that SGC retained the
power to carry out "approval"
Thus, the sponsoring group
would have to go to both calendar-
ing committee and Council before
its event would become official.
But Feldkamp explained yes-
terday that SGC members don't
seem to understand these proced-
ures. Apparently, some questions
exist as to whether the calendar-
ing committee does not both
"schedule" and "approve."
Student organizations w h i c h
had their events scheduled last"
spring by the calendaring com-
mittee may be equally confused.
So, Feldkamp has .informed these
groups that they still have to file
petitions with SGC for "approval"
Advising Council to straighten
out the issue in the fall, Feldkamp
wrote SGC President Thomas
Smithson, '65, recently: "Our of-
fice feels that some formal clari-
fication is necessary to fully de-.
fine what was delegated to the
University Calendar Committee.

UNITED NATIONS-The United
Nations Security Council yester-
day authorized its president to in-
vite both North and South Viet
Nam to take part in debate on the
new Southeast Asia crisis.
But the invitations were worded
to leave the door open for both
sides to submit statements instead
of sending delegates to appear in
person. This raised the prospect
that the council will shelve fur-
ther debate unless there are new
developments in Southeast Asia.
Council President Sivert A. Niel-
sen of. Norway informed the 11-
nation council that there was gen-
eral agreement among the mem-?
bers on dispatch of the invita-
As worked out in private con-
sultations by Nielsen with coun-
cil members, the invitations said
the council would welcome the
views of both Communist North
Viet Nam and Western-supported
South Viet Nam, either through
taking part in the debate or in
a form preferable to them.
No objection was voiced by any
member to the wording of the in-
vitations, and Nielsen said they
would be dispatched at once by
the UN Secretariat.
At the previous council session
on Wednesday the Soviet Union
proposed sending an invitation to
North Viet Nam, or allowing it to
transmit information. The United
States said it had no objection,
but that South Viet Nam should
also be invited.
Informed sources said that no
indications had been received by
the Soviet Union that Hanoi
wanted to take part in the debate.
Some diplomatic sources'-said that
the Soviet Union wanted the in-
vitation worded so that North
Viet Nam had a choice.
South Viet Nam is not expected
to take part in council debate
unless North Viet Nam does so.
If the invitations to send dele-
gations are accepted the council
was prepared to hear them, prob-
ably early next week.
WASHINGTON (P) - Both
houses of Congress gave .President
Lyndon B. Johnson a vote of con-
fidence yesterday in the !Viet
Nam-Southeast Asia crisis.
By a vote of 414 to 0 the House
adopted a bipartisan resolution
backing the President's actions as
commander in chief of the armed
forces, and the Senate followed,
with an 88-2 endorsement..
The opposition votes were cast
by two. Democrats, Sens. Wayne
Morse of Oregon who has repeat-
edly denounced U.S. policies in
Southeast Asia as a threat to
world peace, and Ernest Gruen-
ing of Alaska.
Sen. Barry Goldwater of Ari-
zona, the-GOP presidential nom-
inee, joined fellow Republicans in
voting approval and support of
Johnson's decision to strike back
at North Viet Nam.
The resolution-Morse said it
gives Johnson blanket "author-
ity to wage war"-says:
"The Congress approves and
supports the determination of the
President, as commander in chief,
to take all necessary measures to
repel any armed attack against
the forces of the United States
and to prevent further aggres-

The 228-190 vote victory was
the second successful stage in a
fight for passage by the bill's
backers. The first battle was
won earlier in the day, when the
bill's leadership quickly turned a
35-vote defeat into a 28-vote vic-
In the first battle, Rep. How-
ard W. Smith (D-Va) had moved
to strike the enacting clause and
thus kill the Senate-approved,
$947.5-million measure. On a tell-
er vote, with only 305 member6
on hand, the motion carried 170
to 135. Republicans and conserva-
tive Southern Democrats-combin-
ed in the majority.
But the immediately following
roll call vote brought out 117 more
members-and put them all on
record-and in thi test the lead-
ers won by 225 to 17.- /
After today's final vote, the bill
goes to a Senate-House commit-
tee, where differences between the
House- and Senate-passed meas-
ures will be ironed out.. House
leaders appear confident their ver-
sion will be accepted promptly and
sent to the White House.
The basic aim of the legislation
is to break the cycle of poverty
which keeps many families dis-
advantaged for generations. Near-
ly half of the money would be
spent in trying to help younger
persons lift themselves out of this
cycle. But it wraps in several oth-
er programs as well.
Republicans have called the
measure "an election-year gim-
mick" to gain votes for Demo-
crats. While praising the goal, the
GOP members have argued the
bill is poorly drawn.
Some Southerners oppose it in
fear that its programs would
hasten racial integration in their
states. To counter this, the bill
was altered to permit governors to
veto programs in their states.
And Rep. Phil Landrum, Geor-
gia Democrat who was floor man-
ager for the bill, contended the
enactment of the Civil Rights
Bill of 1964 has made academic
