Concerning the foreign forces in

370,000, the communique said:
"They shall be' withdrawn, after

Those forces will be withdrawn as

U.S. sources, calling this a
significant signpost for U.S. policy,
noted it would take at least six

Viet Nam, mindful of past experi-

While offering a road to peace,
South Viet Nam's allies vowed
that the country would not be
conquered by aggressive force.
"We shall continue our military

NEW YORK (A-The state Ap-

Clayton Powell, (D.-N.Y.), guIlty
yesterday of willful failure to com-
ply with a lower court order in
a long-standing libel Judgment
and sentenced him to 30 days in

The court overruled 4-1 a Sept.

Justice Sidney Fine. He had found

before the court to give an ac-

The majority decision of the
court, the state's second highest,
spoke of the "long and ugly rec-
ord in this matter."
"This failure to obey a sub-
poena is consistent with the deb-
tor's cynical refusal to honor his
own promises," it said, "together
with a total disregard of any and
all process that has been served
against him."
