SECRETARY OF STATE William Rogers defended U.S. sup-
port of anti-communist forces in Laos.
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Rogers
expressed surprise that members of Congress were unfamiliar with
U.S. involvement in the Southeast Asian country.
In response, Senator J. William Fulbright (D-Ark), chairman
of the committee, charged the government with taking action in
Laos without proper congressional authority.
In a related development, Sen. John Sherman Cooper (R-Ky)
announced he would seek to amend forthcoming appropriations bills
to bar any military operations in support of local forces in either
Laos or Thailand.
FIGHTING IN LEBANON continued as Arab guerrillas and
Lebanese soldiers clashed near the Syrian border.
The Lebanese government last night denied reports that it had
asked for a 24-hour cease fire. The reported proposal had already,
been accepted by Al Fatah, the main guerrilla organization.
Palestinian guerrillas and the Lebanese army have been locked
in combat since the army attempted to reassert Lebanese control
of the guerrillas' operations. The guerrillas have used Lebanon as a
staging point for raids against Israel.
An Egyptian spokesman said last night, that Lebanon has agreed
to limited freedom of action for the guerrillas, if it does not contra-
dict the country's "security and sovereignty."
The Lebanese government's major concern is that guerrilla raids
might prompt Israeli reprisals.
GENERALISSIMO FRANCISCO FRANCO announced a wide-
ranging shuffle of Spain's government.
Franco, the country's undisputed ruler since the Spanish Civil
War, relieved 13 of the 18 ministers in his Cabinet. He also relinquish-
ed one of his two positions-President of the Council of Ministers-
to Vice President Luis Carrero Blanco. As chief of state, however,
Franco remained in full control of the government.

Odumegwu Ojukwu, leader of
Biafra, has offered to nego-

Maj. Gen. Yakubu Gowon, the

Gowan indicated yesterday that
the federal government's decision

SEATTLE (P) - Behind the
weathered red walls of a tumble-
down building in Seattle's Uni-
versity District, doctors and
nurses are volunteering time to
treat and counsel alienated
young people on their own terms.
Eighty per cent of the youths
who climb the wooden steps to
the Open Door Clinic use illicit
drugs. But the ailments for
which they come to the free
medical facility range from drug
addiction to the common cold.
The patients say they want
nothing to do with Establish-
ment hospitals or doctors.
Neither will they accept medical
treatment from anyone who
criticizes them for using mari-
juana, LSD, amphetamines, or
The Open Door Clinis is one
of 10 such free medical facilities
in cities around the nation.
The Seattle clinic, started two
years ago on a stake of $87, is
the only which has been able
to operate continuously, its di-
rector says. The others are staff-
ed irregularly, depending on how
much money is donated to pay
for medicine, electricity and
But the Seattle clinic faces
insufficient government funding
programs and pressure from po-
lice to provide information on
patients who use drugs.
Clinic director Al Weese says
clinic physicians do not file re-
ports with police on patients
who use illicit drugs.
"If we did," says Dr. John
Green, a member of the clinic's
board of directors, "the kids
wouldn't come near us."
The notice also lists five other
witnesses who "will place the de-
fendant on the premises of J & J
Cycle Sales," in Ypsilanti, from
approximately 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Two more witnesses, the notice
states, "will place the defendant
on the premises of Roy's Squeeze
In Restaurant from approximate-
ly 2:30 to 3p.m."
At yesterday's pre-trial hear-
ing, Conlin also said he would set
the trial date at another hearing
Dec. 17. He added that the trial
would not begin before January.
