the Soviet Union yesterday.

first bilateral treaty between the
two countries since the days of the

the required two-thirds of those

by 44 Democrats and 22 Repub-
licans. In opposition were 23 Re-
publicans and 15 Democrats, 10
of them from the South.
Those advocates of easing world
tensions outvoted, those who
stressed Moscow's hostile role in
the Vietnam war.
Ratification was expected after
opponents failed Wednesday to
condition its acceptance upon an
end to the war in Vietnam.
Opponents contended it was
wrong to approve a treaty with
a nation furnishing arms to North
The treaty went through the
Senate without change and Soviet
acceptance is regarded as likely.
All attempts to attach condi-

week-long debate. Those condi-

Powell's attorney yesterday warn-

against arresting the former Har-
lem congressman for criminal con-
tempt during any Sunday visit.
In a telegram to the sheriff
attorney Henry R. Williams said:
"Any interference by you on any
Sunday with the person of Adam
Powell constitutes false arrest and
criminal assault subjecting you
to appropriate penalties under the
laws of the State of New York."
"Your office in its history has
never made a Sunday arrest," the
telegram said. "It is in the public
interest that you immediately an-

SAGINAW (P)-A milk hauler's
truck was sabotaged and dairies
began reporting difficulty in buy-
ing milk today as the National
Farmers Organization started a
milk holding action in Michigan
The drive was part of a nation-
wide NFO effort to keep milk off
the market in attempts to win a
contract boosting the farmers'
milk prices by two cents a quart.
The milk strike is viewed as a
symptom of farm unrest that
could have far-reaching political
implications in next year's presi-
If such unrest continues in the
next few months, it could have
an adverse affect on food produc-

J. Dodd's defenders sought with-
out success yesterday to put be-
fore the Senate ethics committee
a sheaf of statements swearing
that testimonial donors wanted
him to use their contributions in
any way he chose.

persons who attended fund-rais-

Sonnett made his move after
