PRAGUEOP-A key figure
in Czechoslovakia's liberalization
drive lost his post last night in
what seemed to be a dramatic
gesture by the new Prague lead-
ership to pacify the Soviet Union.
Virtually on the eve of its show-
down talks with the Soviet polit-
bureau, the Czechoslovak party
presidium ordered Lt. Gen. Vaclav
Pichlik, a chief target of Soviet'
attacks against the new regime, to
Freturn to army service from an
important party position.
The presidium abolished the po.-
litical department that controls
the army, the security police and
the judiciary. Prchlik had headed
the department.
The development came after
the Soviet Union was reported to
have stopped the flow of Russian
tourists to Czechoslovakia as
Prague's reform-Communist lead-
ers prepared for a showdown with:
top Kremlin officials.?
The tourist ban could be inter-
preted as adding an economic
phase to Soviet political and mili-
tary pressure against Czechoslo-
vakia's liberalization drive.
In Moscow, the Soviet Union
announced more military maneuv-
ted Press ers and stepped up its propagan-:
border da campaign against Czechoslo-
vakia's reformist leaders by link-
ing them with Mao Tse-tung.
Premier Alexei N. Kosygin met
in the Kremlin with Czechoslovak
Foreign Trade Minister Vaclav
Vales to discuss trade between the
two countries.

over-all budget

The University announced yesterday budgets for all op-
erating funds totalling $232,399,351 for 1968-69, up $21 mil-
lion from last year.
The general fund, which includes faculty salaries, stu-
dent services and general administration was set at nearly
$104 million by the Regents in June.
Announced yesterday were the budgets for the several
other funds which make upr .

Asked at a news conference if
that meant Rockefeller had prom-
ised the vice presidency to Percy,
Klein replied: "There is some in-.
dication of that."
Later he added that he did
not know.
Klein noted that Percy had
publicly expressed interest in the
vice presidency, and that Nixon
had made no commitments.
Percy's action appeared to in-
terested politicians virtually to
eliminate the Illinois senator as
a potential vice presidential nom-
inee on a Nixon slate.
There had been wide specula-
tion that if Nixon were nominated
he might pick a youthful running-
mate of liberal tendencies who

momentum now building up be-
fore our convention."
The Illinois senator told a news
conference audience that nobody,
including Rockefeller and Nixon,
had ever talked to him about the
vice presidential nomination.
Percy made it clear that he
bases his support of Rockefeller
primarily on the latter's proposals
for a negotiated peace in Vietnam.
The Illinois junior senator was
careful, however, not to criticize
Nixon. He declined to comment
on the former vice president's
Vietnam position.
Percy said he doesn't think that
Rockefeller is the only Republican
who can win in November "but he
has the best chance." He pledged
his support for the nominee, who-
ever he is.

the University total expendi-
The largest of these is the ex-
pendable restricted fund which is
expected to amount to $71 million.
This fund includes sponsored re-
search projects of which gover-
ment contracts make up over 70
per cent.
The remainder of the restricted
fund goes for libraries, extension
and off-campus educational pur-
poses, and student aid through,
scholarships and loans.
The next largest expenditure is
the auxiliary activities fund - of
$57.5 million which includes self-
supporting operations such as the
University hospital and the res-
idence halls. It also includes the
mental health activities budget
of $6.5 million. This budget pro-
vides funds for state supported
operations of the hospital's psy-
chiatric units and the Mental
Health Research Institute.
The expendable restricted fund
anticipates $52 million in federal
government grants and contracts.
Another $13 million is expected in
gifts, grants and income on the
University's endowment funds.
The self-supporting activities'in
the auxiliary fund include an ex-
pected expenditure by the hospi-
tals of over $30 million, residence

$11.8 million, and other expendi-

The six-mile square area in-
cludes most of the Hough neigh-
borhood which was the scene of
looting and burning in 1966.
The Rev. Baxter Hill and some
50 other black leaders were with
Stokes when the curfew announce-
ment was made.
The Rev. Mr. Hill said; "We're
turning the community back to
the mayor." The Negro leaders
voted yesterday to end their pa-
trolling and they thanked Stokes
for his confidence in them.
Gen. Del Corso told newsmen
that the Guardsmen in the area
"would shoot only if a looter was
caught and resisted arrest. I
don't anticipate that there will
be a necessity for shooting."
Earlier yesterday, Stokes said,
"We do not think the danger has,
passed." Less than an 'hour later
his words were reinforced by an

a poster which read: "End this
war on black America and this
war on the ghetto. Please sup-
port black America."
In 'contrast to the 10 dead and
19 wounded in three hours of
sniper fire Tuesday night, the
Negro mayor reported three fires,
36 stores logted and 13 arrests
Wednesday night.,
The guard was returned to a
dozen or so locations where citi-
zens' patrols had not been able
to prevent 'looting Wednesday
night, Stokes said.
In place of the soldiers and
white officers, Negro police and
about 500 concerned Negro cit-
izens patrolled from dusk to dawn,
counselling against the looting
and fire bombing that many
groups of teen-agers said they
were itching to start.
"I feel we owe a great deal to
the citizens of the community
and its black leadership, who pre-
vented more trouble," the 41-year-
old mayor said.
In an interview in Washington,
Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark blamed
a handful of violent extremists
for Tuesday's shootings in Cleve-
land, and said he is surprised
similar incidents have not hap-
pened elsewhere.
But Clark said there is no evi-
dence of any national conspiracy
involved in any big-city disturb-
