ANTIWAR DEMONSTRATION LEADERS of the planned
April 24 protest said yesterday that President Nixon's speech on
Vietnam withdrawal was a hoax on the American people and an
"outrageous display of cynical double talk."
Jerry Gordon and other antiwar protesters spoke at a newscon-
ference called to answer Nixon's speech Wednesday in which the
President rejected appeals to set a date for ending U.S. involvement.
In his speech, Nixon said the American people should hold him
accountable if he did not end American involvement in the Vietnam
war, as he promised during his 1968 campaign.

PRESIDENT NIXON'S PILOT said there have been three
bomb scares on presidential flights.
The most recent threat was on Nixon's last flight to California
when a man anonymously called American Airlines reservations at
Rockefeller Center in New York stating he planned to blow up the,
plane. The other occurences were at Dublin and Berlin.

Draft board members in more than a dozen states have
resigned in protest over the conviction and sentencing of Lt.
I William Calley, saying they disagree with the verdict and
want no part of a system they claim is unfair.
Selective Service System officials interviewed in an
Associated Press survey said the resignations would have
little or no effect on upcoming inductions. And they stressed
only a few members of the nation's 4,102 draft boards were
involved.
Calley, 27, was convicted last week of premeditated
murder of Vietnamese civilians at My Lai and sentenced to
life imprisonment. The conviction and sentence are subject

Latest reports said the rebels

Associated Press correspond-
ent Dennis Neeld said that at least
25 million persons - a third of

East Pakistani commanders are
confident of eventual victory if
they can hold out until the mon-
soon rains began in June which
would make army movement im-
possible.
However, officials in Chuadanga

U.S. for what they say has been

to automatic appeals and Pre-
sident Nixon has announced
he personally will make the
final military decision. Nixon
also ordered Calley released
from the military stockade
pending appeal.
The resignations were scatter-
ed. Four of New Mexico's 16 4
draft board members resigned.
There were two reported resig-
nations in Pennsylvania, three in
Texas, about half a dozen in In-
diana, eight in Iowa, six in Ar-
kansas, eight in Nebraska, one in
Utah, five in Illinois.
Dr. Edward J. Sawyer, 77, a
member of the Newton, Mass.,
board for 30 years, resigned say-
ing, "I feel that I can no longer
be unbiased in my position in ex-
pediting draft in the military
service which penalizes both for
obeying and disobeying orders ...
Through the Calley conviction, the
military is telling subordinates all
down the line, 'Maybe you should
obey and maybe you shouldn't.
The decision is yours.'
Several draft board members
said that although they did not
agree with the verdict, they would
remain on the job.
In Michigan, where 10 draft
board members were reported to
have quit, a Selective Service
spokesman said, "Our position is
these men have not resigned. We
expect to confer with them and
hope to resolve their feelings."
Nixon's announcement that he
will make the ultimate decision in
the case involving Calley, sentenc-
ed to life imprisonment for t he
killing of Vietnamese civilians at
the village of My Lai, has brought
some critical comments from var-
ious members of Congress.
Ten congressmen yesterday call-
ed Nixon's intervention in . t h e
Calley case "extremely improvi-
dent."
They applauded a protest of
Nixon's action by the Army pro-
secutor of Calley and noted that
the country must look beyond the
ultimate solution of this case to
the total context of policy and
conduct of the war at the time of
My Lai.

Milliken
Nixon act
LANSING UIP) -- Gov. William
Milliken s a i d yesterday he be-
lieves President Nixon did n o t
abuse Judicial processes, by saying
he would make the final judg-
ment on sentencing of Army Lt.
William Calley.
"I do not think the President
was interfering with the judicial
process, but I believe that if, we
ever make Lt. Calley a hero of this
nation, then heaven h e 1 p us,"~
Milliken said.
Capt. Aubrey Daniel. 3d, pros-
ecutor in the army courtmartial
of Calley, had charged Tuesday
that Nixon's intervention in the
case weakened respect for the le-
gal process.
Nixon last week ordered Calley,
who faces life imprisonment, to
be released from confinement
pending review of his conviction
of murders at My Lai.
In a related' development, the
State Senate Wednesday voted for
a second time to urge that Nixon
grant executive clemency to Cal-
ley.
The Senate voted 28-8 for a res-
olution containing the appeal. It
will be forwarded to. the White
House if adopted by t he. State
House after committee study.
A minority of lawmakers op-
posed the bill, charging it was be-
yond the; Legislature's competence
and business.
Sen. Basil Brown (D-Detroit)
complained that Calley's release
from confinement after being
convicted was incongruous in light
of repeated denials of bail to An-
gela Davis, self-proclaimed, com-
munist who faces charges of mur-
der complicity in a California Jail
break.
