report
WASHINGTON (AP)- Defend-

campuses, a special Pentagon re-
port said Friday elimination of
the ROTC program w o u1 d de-
crease civilian influence within
the national defense system.
The report, answering campus
criticism and recommending con-
tinuation of ROTC, called upon
colleges and universities to play
stronger roles in Reserve Officer
Training Corps affairs.
The 61-page document w a s
drawn up by six college educators
and three senior military officers.
Secretary of Defense Melvin R.
Laird ordered the review last
spring in the wake of mounting
dissent over ROTC.
The committee conceded that

its study came during a period of
"unprecedented faculty and stu-
dent opposition to ROTC." Three
Ivy League schools - Harvard,
Dartmouth and Columbia - have
taken steps to curtail or d r o p
ROTC completely.
The committee rejected one
campus argument outright, that
concerning military influence.
The panel asserted that officer
education on civilian campuses
"strengthens our traditional civil-
ian participation in and influence
upon the military," whereas other
training approaches "yield more
to domination by the military or-
ganization acting on its own.
"Indeed, insofar as some critics
fear 'militaristic' influence in the
national defense system, opposi-

A $21.35 BILLION authorization for the Safeguard antimis-
sile system and other military hardware passed the House.
Passage of the defense procurement bill was the climax of a
stormy session in which the House defeated a series of efforts to cut
$2.2 billion from the measure.
The bill will provide for deployment of the ABM system, as well'
as authorize $1 billion for ship modernization and permit 'the pur-
chase of 23 more controversial C5A supercargo planes.

THE SOVIET UNION will delay arms control talks with the
United States.
French diplomats say the U.S. State Department may be opti-
mistic when it forsees an early start to strategic arms limitation talks'
with the Russians. They say Moscow sees more urgency in negotiating
Chinese-Soviet differences than in opening the arms talks which have
already been delayed for 15 months.
THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND voted to create
and distribute $9.5 billion in "paper gold."
The decision, at the close of the annual Fund and World Bank
meeting, brought indications that the next step may be to use the
good-as-gold Special Drawing Rights to relieve the plight of poor na-
tions.
Paper gold can be used directly only by nations with a balance
of payments deficit - those that import more goods than their ex-
ports will pay for.
BRITISH Prime Minister Harold Wilson ended a Labor
convention with the claim that the nation is paying its way again,
"with good times coming."
The six-million strong Labor party ended its annual convention
yesterday vowing to close ranks, quit quarreling, and concentrate onl
scoring a third straight victory against opposition Conservatives.
Wilson's government's five-year term expires in May 1971,
but he has the right to call an election at any time of his own
choosing. Consensus is that Wilson, with at least a year to go before
setting an election date, can close the gap of 8 points that the Labor-
ites trail Conservatives in public opinion polls.

PRESIDENT NIXON ended the threat of a nationwide rail-
road shutdown.
His executive order Friday creating an emergency mediation
board automatically binds members of four railroad shopcraft unions
to stay on the job and orders road operators to keep trains running for
60 days.
The administration's first formal intervention in a major labor-
management dispute was announced 12 hours before the strike-lock-
out deadline set by the parties after nearly a year of fruitless bar-
gaining on a wage contract.
U.S. MILITARY INTELLIGENCE sources believe the latest
hydrogen bomb tested by Communist China was dropped from an
airplane.
In announcing the Red Chinese atomic test last Monday, the
U,S. Atomic Energy Commission said the explosion occurred in the
lower atmosphere, but it did not specify the carrier.

BONN fr ---Willy Brandt emerged last night as the next
chancellor of West Germany.
Hi's Social Democrats and the small Free Democratic par-
ty formally combined in a coalition that brought an end to 20
years of Christian Democratic dominance under such leaders
as Konrad Adaenuer, Ludwig Erhard and the current chan-
cellor, Kurt Georg Kiesinger.
Brandt, 55, will be the first Socialist chancellor of West
Germany. Before W o r 1 d War II, in 1930, Socialist Herman
Mueller headed a German government,
