BIG DOUBLE FEATURE
THE SKIRMISHING between President Nixon and the Demo-
cratic Congress over legislation for his new economic policy is
about over, with Nixon apparently the winner.
The big Democratic retreat was on a tax-cut Nixon said he would
veto unless it were stripped of extra tax reductions and a plan for
financing presidential campaigns with public funds.
Senate-House conferees knocked out some $12 billion of tax
cuts the Senate had added and also whittled down the campaign
financing plan to such an extent that the White House strongly im-
plied Nixon would sign the bill.
A BILL AIMED at raising price supports on feed grain and
wheat by 25 per cent this year and next year was approved by
the House Agriculture Committee Thursday over opposition by
the Nixon administration.
The bill would raise rates on surplus corn and wheat by 20 and
30 cents per bushel respectively.

"BO WIDERBERG'S 'JOE
HILL' IS SPLENDID
Joe Hill, the man:
Joe Hill was a banjo-playing
drifter who became an organ-
izer of the radical "Wobblies.
In 1915, he was indicted for
murder and executed.
Many felt he was framed.
It has fallen to Bo Widerberg,
director of "Elvira Madigan",
to tell this uniquely American
story. In "Joe Hill" he chooses
not to concentrate on the
political being or musician but
concentrates on Joe Hill the MAN.
Robett M. Bryn asked New York State Supreme Court Justice
Lester Heltzman Friday to extend his guardianship to all human
fetuses scheduled to be aborted in the city's 18 municipal hospitals.
Last week Holtzman appointed Byrn legal guardian for an un-
born baby and thus barred the unidentified expectant mother from
having the abortion she was awaiting in Queens Hospital.

TALKS ON LONG-TERM WALL PASSES for West Berliners
deadlocked yesterday. East Germany claimed new Western de-
mands interfered with a special Christmas pass arrangement it
was ready to announce.
West Berliners have not been permitted to visit East Berlin since
May, 1966. Christmas passes are a burning issue for many of the

The stalled talks also postponed signing of agreements in the
other part of the all-German dialogue, those on Berlin transit access

Inspectors prowl around the wreckage of a two-plane collision which occured near the Raleigh-Durham,
N.C. airport yesterday. Two men were killed as their light aircraft crashed into an Eastern Airlines

Nortleast Cam-bodian front hit
By The Associated Press
North Vietnamese troops are
creeping closer to Cambodian
fortified positions on the north-
east front in covered trenches,
similar to the tactics they used
17 years ago to defeat the
French at Dien Bien Phu.
The Cambodian high command
reported battles at two points
northeast of Phnom Penh where
the Cambodian front along a 30-
mile stretch of Highway 6 col-
lapsed last week.
French photographer J e a n
Duquesnay said that N o r t h
Vietnamese troops were digging
covered trenches closer and clos-
er to Cambodian positions just
north of a town 47 m i1e s
from the capital. This conceal-
ed their movements from d i v e
bombers, which hit close to the
government defenses with high
explosives and napalm.
Trenches of this kind w e r e
used by the Viet Minh prede-
cessors tohthe present N o r t h
Vietnamese and Viet Cong fight-
ers in the battle for Dien Bien
Phu in 1954.

bombers on the Hi Chi Minh

radar sites within the country,

The raids raised to 85 the num-
ber of reported strikes by U.S.
aircraft in the heightened tech-

Vietnam this year.
Massive supply buildups are re-
ported in the pass areas as the
North Vietnamese begin their
dry season effort to move sup-
plies down the trail.
B52s struck Friday in Cambodia
and South Vietnam, the com-
mand reported. Two missions in
South Vietnam were flow n
against North Vietnamese infil-
tration routes and supply dumps
in the central highlands, where
an enemy buildup is reported
Meanwhile, while the U.S. has
been increasing its bombing of
North Vietnam, the North Viet-
namese have cut down on non-

DETROIT W) - General Mot-
ors Corp. announced yesterday it
is advising the owners of m o r e
than 6.6 million Chevrolets to take
them to dealers for installation at
company expense of restraints to
offset engine mount failure.
The recall-believed to be t h e
largest in auto industry history
- affects owners of approximate-
ly 6,682,000 1965 through 1969
regular-size Chevrolets and Novas
as well as 1967 through 1969 Ca-
maros, and certain light trucks.
Industry soutrces say that when
the mounts foul the accelerator
can be jammed open, sending the
car speeding out of control.
The company said only vehicles
with V8 engines are involved, add-
ing that this excludes all Chev-
elles, Corvettes and six-cylinder
About two weeks ago, consumer
advocate Ralph Nader accused the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration of "callous disre-
gard for the safety of the own-
ers and paggengers" in its hand-
ling of the reports of defective en-

he accused General Motors of
"corporate irresponsibility" in not
moving to correct the defect.
In a letter to the National
Highway Traffic Administration
GM said it "does not agree that
these engine mounts constitute a
