THE WITHDRAWAL OF 25,000 TROOPS from South Viet-,
nam will begin with the puilout of 9,000 troops from the Mekong
Delta, the U.S. command said yesterday.
Besides the troops from the politically sensitive delta region,
7,000 marines will be pulled out of the northern areas of South Viet-
The departure of the men will begin with an airlift before mid-
July of a 900-man battalion, the command said. The remainder of the.
16,000 men now designated for withdrawal will be pulled out by the
end of August.
ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER GOLDA MEIR told Britain yes-
terday her government unalterably opposes big power intervention
in the quest for peace in the Mideast.
Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart countered for the British gov-
ernment with the warning that negotiations among the Soviet Union,
Britain, France, and the United States probably offer the last chance
to head off a new war.,
The encounter, Mrs. Meir's first foreign mission as Prime Minis-
ter, came as British lawmakers built up pressure on the government
to explain why it is selling heavy arms to Arab states while denying
weapons to Israel.
Mrs. Meir has said the Big Four talks give Arab leaders the ex-'
cuse not to deal directly with Israel and she repeated this to Stewart
yesterday. She has argued that in the late 20th century it should be
inconceivable for great powers to settle the fate of shaller ones.
A SENATE JUDICIARY SUBCOMMITTEE approved yester-
day a bill designed to prevent a wide-open constitutional conven-
Thirty three of the required 34 states have submitted petitions
requesting a constitutional convention concerning reapportionment
of state legislatures.
The bill restricts any convention to the subject named in the
states' petitions and forbids a convention from m a k i n g general
changes in the constitution.
Sen. Sam J. Ervin (D-N. Carolina), chairman of the subcommit-
tee, says that this bill is necessary "if we are to avoid the threat of a,
major constitutional crisis."1

The Radical Caucus is sponsor-
ing an Education Program begin-
ning next week a n d running
through Oct. 21 which members
hope will consolidate the campus
left and precipitate discussion
throughout the University and the
"The program is primarily for
radicals to get together and dis-
cus political issues," said Marc
Van Der Hout, a member of Rad-
ical Caucus a n d Executive Vice
President of Student Government
Council, "but anyone who is in-
terested is welcome to participate.
The more divergent opinions that
are expressed, the more stimulat-
ing the discussions will be."
"We want to discuss more deep-
ly the issues that are concerning
political activities," he said. "We
want people to think about what
they are doing when they sit-in or
take similar protest action."
tThe education program seeks to
utilize an informal type of forum
and bolster it with reading lists
and a discussion leader to provide
a structure in which fruitful com-
munication may result.
The reading lists have been the
biggest problem in organizing the
program. The undergraduate li-
brary has refused to place the nec-
essary boots on-closed reserve be-
cause the program is not given
for credit. Even if the books were
on reserve, they could not be used
by students who are not registered
for the summer term.
The caucus has asked Assistant
Dean James Shaw of the literary'
college to formulate a procedure
to make the books available
Until this is done, the readings
are available for use in the Radi-
cal Caucus office on the second
floor of the Student Activities
The first meeting of the pro-
gram, which is to be held Tues-
day, June 17, at 8 p.m. on the
third floor of the SAB, deals with

over a variety of subjects includ-
ing Third World Liberation and
Imperialism, Reform or Revolu-
tion and Perspective of the Stu-

men's Liberation in addition to

gram. SGC has donated up to $150

WASHINGTON OP) - The gov-

It said the entire question rest-
ed with the executive branch and
the judicial branch is not "com-
petent" to decide whether s u c h
wiretaps are justified.
The argument came in a me-
morandum filled- by the Justice
Department in U.S. District Court
in Chicago. It was in answer to
motions seeking government dis-
closure of information gained
about eight antiwar demonstrators
indicated in connection with dis-
orders during the 1968 Democra-
tic National Convention.
Contending it can wiretap for
domestic intelligence purposes
without court approval, the de-
partment said, "There can be no
doubt that there are today in this
country organizations which in-
tend to use force and other illegal
means to attack and subvert the
existing form of our government.
"Faced with such a state of af-
fairs," the memorandum asserted,

ly his oath," will utilize electron-
