THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION'S inflation-fighting pro-
gram has been seriously jeopardized by approval of the coal
miners' wage hike, some members of the House-Senate Economic
Committee said yesterday.
The Pay Board's approval Friday of the raise "puts the whole
stabilization program into the greatest possible jeopardy,' said the
committee chairman, Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.}.
"If you have 9, 10 and 15 per cent settlements, we're better off
without a Pay Board," Proxmire added.
ELLIOT RICHARDSON, secretary of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare, announced yesterday a plan to
phase out the 5,500 member commisioned-officer corps of the
Public Health Service and the post of U.S. surgeon general.
Richardson also endorsed the recommendation that federal doc-
tors and other health profesionals be absorbed into the regular civil
service system.
According to Richardson, the changeover will be made gradually,
and he added that a vigorous and positive recruitment effort must
be developed to attract physicians, dentists and other health per-
sonnel.
The commisioned corps draws 96 per cent of its staff from young
doctors and dentists fulfilling their draft requirements outside the
armed services.
SEN. GAYLORD NELSON's (D-Wis.) two proposals to slash
the business benefits in the $27million tax cut bill yesterday were
easily defeated in the Senate.
Similar Democratic efforts had been made earlier in the debate,
but were defeated by much narrower margins.
There were indications that some Democrats switched to favor
the business booms in an effort to make it less likely that President
Nixon would veto the bill if a Democratic-sponsored presidential
campaign fund financing were attached to it.
The Senate will vote tomorrow on whether to add the tax-cut
bill to the controversial presidential campaign financing plan.

Vietnamese
ops gather

SAIGON ) - At least 15,000 South Vietnamese troops,
massed on both sides of Cambodia's border yesterday for pos-
sible offensive thrusts aimed at relieving North Vietnamese
pressure on hard pressed Cambodian forces.
Informants returning from border regions said they saw
large-scale movement of infantry and armor at three differ-
ent locations 30 to 55 miles northwest of Saigon. Field reports
added that some South Vietnamese troops had moved up
from the Mekong Delta in the South.

JUDGE GEORGE BOLDT, Pay Board chairman, being quizzed
yesterday by the Joint Economic Committee of Congress.
Phase2 plan faces
hostile labor, Senate
WASHINGTON (A)- - Phase 2, the first American venture
into peacetime wage and price control, ended its first week
knee-deep in troubles.
It is confronted with hostility from labor, intervention
by Congress, uncertainty in industry, and widespread confus-
ion and skepticism among the general public.
President Nixon was virtually snubbed at the convention
of the AFL-CIO, whose president George Meany had laid
down an ultimatum: "If the President doesn't want our mem-
bership on the Pay Board on our terms, he knows what he
can do." Nixon flew to Bal Harbor, Fla.,

Any major South Vietnamese
thrust into Cambodia would un-
doubtedly receive heavy U.S. a I r
support. American planes and heli-
copter gunships already are fly-
ing more strikes across the bord-
er because of what, official U.S.
sources called a deteriorating mili-
tary situation in Cambodia.
North Vietnamese forces, w h o
have fought their way within rock-
et-shelling distance of Phnom
Pneh and are attacking on the
northeast front, are known to be
resupplied from hidden bases in
the border region.
The Cambodian command feels
a South Vietnamese offensive
against these supply lines would
relieve enemy pressure on Phnom
Penh and divert Communist-led
forces battling 20,000 Cambodian
troops on the northeastern front.
"It would certainly help us," said
Cambodia's chief military spokes-
man, Lt. Col. Am Rong, in Phnom
Penh.
Cambodia has asked Saigon for
two artillery battalions, an en-
gineer battalian and heavy equip-
ment to rebuild bridges destroyed
in the fighting northeast of
Phnom Penh.

Egypt troops
readied for
Israel war
CAIRO (P) - President Anwar
Sadat told frontline troops yes-
terday "that there is no longer any
hope at all in peaceful solutions"
in the Middle East and Egypt has
decided to go to war, the official
Middle East news agency reported.
"Perhaps this is Allah's will that
I should get this chance for meet-
ing with you now to tell you that
our decision is fighting . . ." the
agency quoted Sadat as saying.
"We were convinced that the
battle was coming ... and now it
has become certain to us that hope
has died and there is no longer
any discussion around it."
The agency said the decision was
taken after what Sadat termed "a
period of elusiveness and Israeli
stubborness." He added: "I have
come to tell you that the time for
battle has come, that there is no
more hope...
Meanwhile Tunisia is disturbed
by President Habib Bourguiba's
suggestiofi of a future federation
between Israel and its Arab neigh-
bors.

SENATE DEBATE
Govt. opposes troop cuts in Europe

WASHINGTON (VP) -Striving
to defeat a move in the Sen-
ate to cut back U.S. troops in
Europe, high administration of-
ficials say that the Atlantic al-
lies now shoulder a larger share
of the West's common defense
burden and that bringing GIs
home would not save much
money.
The central administration ar-
gument - disputed by Senate
Majority leader Mike Mansfield
(D-Mont.)-is that a onesided
U.S. troop pullout now would

torpedo NATO's current effort
to negotiate a mutual force re-
duction with the East European
Soviet bloc.
The issue is headed for a Sen-
ate floor fight soon in the wake
of the Senate Appropriation
Committee's 14-13 approval
Thursday of a Mansfield amend-
ment to the $70-billion defense
money bill.
The amendment would reduce
U.S. troop strength in Europe
from 310,000 to 250,000 by June
15.

Backers of the Mansfield pro-
viso say that large scale U.S.
troop deployment in West Eu-
rope no longer can be afforded
by a financially troubled Uncle
Sam, and that the allies are fail-
ing to carry their share of the
load.
However, the Administration
argues that NATO members are
upping their defense outlays by
an average 11.1 per cent this
year.

told the union delegates nis anti-
inflation plans would succeed with
or without them, and added: "I
know exactly what I can do. And
I am going to do it."
Only the Price Commission ap-
peared to have made a strong
start. It forced Nixon's Cost of
Living Council to back down on
liberal rules for new-car price in-
creases. Then it announced it may
refuse to approve price boosts pas-
sing on to consumers the full,
amount of pay increases approved
by its sister agency, the P a y
Board.
Leary of inflation, Pay Board
Chairman, C. Jackson Grayson
said, "What I do not want to do,
and none of the commission wants
to do, is to create a permanent re-
gulatory control body over the en-
tire economy."

We want to talk to you
about a career in law .. .
without law school.
When you become a Lawyer's Assistant, you'll be
doing work traditionally done by lawyers-work we
think you'll find challenging and responsible. And
Lawyer's Assistants are now so critically needed that
The Institute for Paralegal Training can offer you a
position in the city of your choice and a higher salary
than you'd expect as a recent college graduate. You'll
work with lawyers on interesting legal problems-and
the rewards will grow as you do.
A representative of The Institute for Paralegal Train-
ing will conduct interviews on:
