College Viet
Parley Nears
Compromise Likely on
Blast of War Policy.; I
Walkout Averted
Debate continued late into last
night on resolutions to be pre-
sented in the final session of the
first National Student Conference
on Vietnam at Cornell University.
The session was scheduled to end
Two main groups among the 45
Eastern college and university
delegations represented were back-
ing opposing resolutions on gov-
ernment policy in Vietnam. As
formal presentations bogged down
in parliamentary points a con..
promise resolution appeared in-
creasingly imminent between the
majority favoring censure of the
government and a minority de-
fending Administration policy.
Marcus Raskin, co-director of
the Institute for Policy Studies in
Washington, spoke to the confer-
ence yesterday afternoon, calling
for the formation of a new na-
tional student union to replace the
National S t u d e n t Association.
M Raskin, a critic of the Vietnam
war, pointed out the irony of the
deception in a society that sup-
ports the war but decries Infiltra-
tion of student organizations by
the Central Intelligence Agency.
Walkout Averted
A walkout by approximately 20
of the 140 delegates who were
sponsoring the motion to support
U.S. policy was averted Friday
when the minority group was as-
sured of a fair hearing of its reso-
lution. The delegations of Ford-
ham University and St. John's
University, Brooklyn had charged
that the conference, advertised as
the "first attempt at sober, un-
emotional campus dialogue on
Southeast Asian policies," was in
reality "stacked" by critics hos-
tile to American policy.
The most probable resolution to
be passed at tonight's final session
is one calling for peace moves, im-
mediate cessation of bombing and
a firm commitment of the U.S. to
withdraw its military forces from
Vietnam. Main supporters of this
resolution are Columbia, Pennsyl-
vania and Colgate universities,
Barnard, Smith Mount Holyoke
4 and Harper colleges.
The harassment and jeering of
a State Department spokesman.
Daniel Davidson, on the opening
lecture Wednesday drew com-
plaints from some of the students.
Fair Speaker Balance
Mark Belnick, a Cornell student
chairing the conference, said an
attempt had been made to obtain
a fair balancebofspeakers but that
supporters of the Administration
position had been "scarce and also
expensive." Of the 11 guest speak-
ers, only three were considered
favorable to the Vietnam policy:
M of the government. They were
Davidson, Prof. Wesley Fishel of
Michigan State University who
spoke last night, and Prof. Milton
I. Sacks of Brandeis University'
The pro-Administration resolu-
tion introduced read: "We say
with President Kennedy: 'The
United States like the Republic
of Vietnam, remain devotedto the
cause of peace -and our primary!
purpose is to help maintain
(South Vietnam's) independence.'
If the Communist authorities in
North Vietnam will stop their
campaign to destroy the Republic
of Vietnam, the measures we are
taking to assist . . . defense efforts
will no longer be necessary."

The game of subletting summer
apartments is now being played by
many University students. During
the next two months severalathou-

a market that is flooded beyond
Several sublet services which
try to match apartments with
summer tenants are presently
' available to students. The opera-
tion of these services follows a
simple basic pattern.
The winter tenant fills out a
card describing his apartment and
files it with the sublet service.

response to the service has been
far greater by those trying toj

claims that there are well over 100
apartments listed with the service,

summer sublets will become great-
er as the summer draws nearer.

NSA Agrees
To Inquiry
Link Newspaper Guild
To Philadelphia Fund
Called CIA Front
J By The Associated Press
Top officials of the National
Student Association concurred last
night with demands for a full-
scale investigation of the relation-
ship of the Central Intelligence
Agency with private groups.
Some members of Congress and
students associated with NSA have
called for such an investigation
following disclosures of CIA In-
volvement with several founda-
tions and student groups.
These revelations have led to
the questioning of possible CIA
involvement with other groups, in
particular the American News-
paper Guild. Officers of the Guild
said yesterday the union has re-
ceived over $1 million from various
foundations for overseas activi-
ties, but to its knowledge, none of
it has come from the CIA.
Published reports have said that
the Guild receives funds from
foundations which do not list their
incomes. One of the foundations
named, the Andrew Hamilton
Fund of Philadelphia, was report-
ed by the Washington Post as
"identified yesterday by govern-
ment officials as a CIA front."
The Guild said it would investi-
;gate its relationship with all
foundations, and "will immediate-
ly terminate its relationship with
any found' linked to the CIA."
Meanwhile, NSA officials .said
they will turn over their organi-
zation's records to the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee, pend-
ing an official inquiry.

the NSA supervisory board to re-

In other developments, Internal
Revnue Service offices in Wash-
Iington and Austin, Texas, have
offered conflicting stories about
the existence of a fund named as
a money pipeline from the CIA to
the NSA. Ramparts magazine list-
ed the San Jacinto fund of Hous-
ton as one of five foundations
that dispensed CIA money.
IRS officials in Washington were
reported as denying the existence
of the fund, but the district of-
fice in Austin said the Washington
office had declared it tax-exempt
two years ago.
Also, an official at the Univer-
1sity of Oregon said yesterday the
