Senate compromise clears

THE ,ARMY announced yesterday that soldiers who wear
their uniforms in this week's anti-war demonstrations in Wash-
ington will be arrested and face possible court martial.
A Sept. 12 directive from the Pentagon bans servicemen from
demonstrating in uniform and forbids them to engage in protests
"when violence is likely to result."
Because the Justice Dept. has said that violence is expected in
Washington some military authorities feel that they may also be
able to deal with servicemen who participate in civilian clothing.
The armed forces police detachment of the Military District of
Washington has been assigned to watch for violators of the rule,
who could incur maximum punishment of two years at hard labor
plus a dishonorable discharge.
HEAVY FIGHTING erupted near the Cambodian border as
North Vietnamese troops attacked an American artillery base
after a day-long battle with South Vietnamese mercenaries a mile
The fighting centered near the town of Bo Due, 83 miles north
of Saigon, where up to two North Vietnamese regiments may be
massing. Field reports said the allies lost 15 men with 75 wounded
while 80 North Vietnamese were killed.
The U.S. artillery base, three miles from Bo Due, was hit for
the second time in four days, leaving at least five Americans killed and
THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT decided not to appeal a court
decision that will hamper cutting off federal funds to racially
biased school districts.
A ruling by the New Orleans Apellate Court had objected to the
Department of HEW's policy that proof of discrimination in pupil
and faculty assignments is sufficient evidence that all programs con-
ducted by the school district are discriminatory.
The Department of HEW will now lhave the additional burden of
finding whether each school program receiving federal funds is in
violation of the law instead of basing cutoffs on discrimination in
one particular area.

Nixon Vietnam plan
WASHINGTON (/P) - Waving flags, banners, and placards, sev-
eral thousand persons turned out yesterday for a Veterans Day rally
at the Washington Monument to proclaim their support for President
Nixon's Vietnam policy and denounce its opponents.
"Let there be no mistake: the silent majority is no longer si-
lent," Lee Edwards, coordinator of the "Freedom Rally," shouted into
a microphone on the monument grounds.
National Park Police estimated the overwhelmingly white crowd
at 7,500, somewhat short of the 10,000 hoped for by the organizers.
Edwards, on the other hand, estimated 15,000 were present.
Earlier, about 3,000 persons climbed the long hill into Arlington
National Cemetery for the traditional laying of the presidential wreath
at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
dent Nixon's proposal f or a
draft lottery cleared its ma-
jor Senate obstacle yesterday
as advocates of broader draft
reform agreed to drop their
efforts this year in return for
a commitment to hearings
and possible legislation in
The agreement was reached at
an hour-long meeting in Demo-
cratic leader Mike Mansfield's of-
fice, opening the way for Senate
approval of the House-passed
measure, possibly before Thanks-
Sen. John C. Stennis (D-Miss),
chairman of the Senate Armed
Services Committee, told reporters
"I feel greatly encouraged that a
bill can move along and will pass
the Senate without amendments."
The House bill would repeal a
sentence in the 1967 Selective
Service Act that forbids use of a
lottery if 19-year-olds are drafted
Stennis and Sen. Margaret
Chase Smith of Maine, the rank-
ing Republican on the Armed
Services Committee, both pledged
they would hold comprehensive
hearings next year with a view
toward reporting new draft legis-
lation to the Senate. The present
draft law expires June 30, 1971.
The Nixon administration had
said it would switch to the 19-
year-old draft next year and de-
clared it would use other, more
complex methods, if Congress did
not permit a lottery.
The aim of the changes is to
limit a young man's liability to one
year, either the period he is 19 or
the year after expiration of a col-
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of
Massachusetts, the assistant Dem-
ocratic leader anda key advocate
of broad draft reform, said Sten-
nis' pledge "gives me the kind of
assurances I would need to sup-
port the repeal and the institution
of a random selection system."
He also said Stennis' promise
on hearings and action "made a
strong impact" on those at the
meeting, including several other
senators who have sponsored draft
