MILITARY SHIPMENTS to Greece will resume full-scale,
the Nixon administration announced yesterday.
The United States suspended delivery of major military items to
Greece after a coup in April 1967 established an authoritarian regime
there.
The announcement yesterday said that "although the United
States had hoped for a more rapid return to representative govern-
ment in Greece, the trend toward a constitutional order is establish-
ed."
Officials acknowledged that Greece will now receive $56.million
worth of aircraft, tanks, helicopters, armored personnel carriers,
mortar and artillery equipment, and tank ammunition.

WASHINGTON (R) - The government yesterday announc-
ed standby emergency measures for transporting freight and
passengers in the face of a 'nationwide railroad shutdown
threatened for tonight.
The provisions to use new or additional truck and bus
services were announced by Interstate Commerce Commission
Chairman George M. Stafford as Labor Department officials
continued efforts to head off the rail strike.
The latest dispute involves a demand by the AFL-CIO
United Transportation Union for the restoration of some
20,000 locomotive firemen's jobs.
Earlier this year, President Nixon invoked the 60-day
legal provision under the Railway Labor Act to delay a shut-
down in this particular dispute. The union and industry then
voluntarily negotiated for a >'

AN AMERICAN COMMANDER in Vietnam said yesterday he
is applying strong pressure on North Vietnamese troops in four
provinces east of Saigon.
The purpose of the strategy, according to Lt. Gen. Michael S.
Davison, commander of the U.S. 2nd Field Force, is to allow the SouthI
Vietnamese to take over the area and to facilitate President Nixon's
withdrawal program.
Davison said he was trying to put his divisions into a position
such' that their withdrawal would cause "the least disruption to the
Vietnamese."'
THE UNITED AUTO WORKERS yesterday ordered 50 per
cent par~cuts for union officers and international representatives,
as the strike against General Motors moved into its second week.
The economy measure was taken by the UAW's 25 member execu-
tive board.'
Meanwhile, negotiations between the union and General Motors
were held for the first time since the strike began.

SOUTHERN GOVERNORS yesterday adopted a one-sen-
tence statement opposing busing to achieve racial balance in
schools.
The simple statement, adopted by a vote of 10 to 2, read: "The
Southern Governors Conference opposes'the busing of school children
from one neighborhood to another for the avowed purpose of attempt-
ing to achieve numerical balancing of the races."
"It's too little too late," said Georgia's Gov. Lester Maddox. But
he was among those who voted for the statement at the final business
session of the two-day conference.

THE SUPREME COURT yesterday received the Nixon Ad-
ministration's arguments opposing a motion by Massachusetts
to haye the court declare the :ietnam war unconstitutional.
The government filed a brief with the court, stating that not all
wars need a formal declaration from Congress. Should the court hear
the case, the government said, the nation could be put in an em-
barrassing straightjacket.

DR. SIDNEY P. MARLAND was named yesterday by Presi-
dent Nixon to serve as the U.S. Commissioner of Education.
Marland moves into the post once held by James E. Allen, who
was' elbowed out as education commissioner and assistant secretary
of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare' after he criticized
the U.S. military operation in Cambodia.
Nixon did not fill the assistant secretaryship.
Marland, 56, is president of the Institute for Educational Devel-
opment in New York..
Marland's appointment must still be confirmed by the Senate.

Clean car~
b Ilpasse
In'Senate
WASHINGTON (A) - Passing
the toughest air pollution control
bill ever considered by Congress,
the Senate yesterday told the auto
industry to produce a nearly pol-
lution free car by 1975 or face
a possible assembly line shutdown.
The bill, geared to a p olic y
judgment on minimum steps
needed to safeguard public health,
does not take into account eco-
nomic or technological feasibility.
It now goes to an uncertain
but likely prolonged conference
with the House which earlier pass-
ed a'weaker measure.
'The Senate bill, passed 73-0, is
largely the work of Sen. Edmund
S. Muskie' (D-Maine), and his air
and water pollution subcommittee.
It includes national air quality
and emission standards and en-
forcement tools aimed at curb-
ing pollution from all sources.
- But it is aimed particularly at
curbing noxious and potentially
dangerous emissions from what
Muskie termed "that pollution
monster, the automobile.
The' bill authorizes expendit-
tures of more than $1.1 billion over
three years, chiefly for research.
It also would allow the filing
of citizen suits to enforce com-
pliance.Criminal penalties of up
to two years in jail and a $50,000
fine are set for wilfull and con-
tinued violations.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (A) - Vice
President Spiro T. Agnew yes-
terday assailed "the puddle-
headed philosophy" of Federal
Communications Commissioner
Nicholas Johnson.
Agnew's remarks launched the
second swing of his campaign
to aid Republican congressional
candidates. He spoke in behalf
of Rep. William O. Cowger of
Louisville, a moderate Republi-
can who is being opposed for a
third t e r m by a{ Democratic
war critic.
Most of Agnew's text was de-
voted to an attack on Johnson,
the FCC member who had chal-
lenged Agnew's.Las Vegas, Nev.,.
speech on t h e impact of the
"drug culture" on American
popular music.
Johnson's contention that in-
creasing drug use is related to
unjust forces in American so-
ciety, Agnew charged, "is the
sort of fatuous nonsense being

perpetrated on t h e American
public by t h e superpermissive
officials that have been allowed
to take so much control of our
government."
Quoting Johnson's reference
to "the repressive, absurd and
unjust forces in our society that
drive people , to drugs," Agnew
declared:
"There it is, my friends, in
all its pristine majesty -- the
puddle-headed philosophy of
the radical-liberal run ram-
pant." He called it "dangerous
nonsense because by blaming
everybody, it holds nobody re-
sponsible."
At no point in his text did the
vice president-name the FCC of-
ficial, an appointee of former
President Lyndon B. Johnson,
and the commission's most out-
spokendcritic of the broadcast-
ing industry.
Responding to Agnew, John-
son stated in Washington, "I

have noted the wire service re-
ports of Vice President Agnew's
personal attack on me with in-
terest.
"Certainly the broadcasting-
industry will be amused to hear
that I am a 'super permissive'
government official," he s a i d
and added, "I am prepared to
stand on the-text of my Sept. 17
speech."
Agnew's criticism of John-
son as a public official was link-
ed to a contention that "a
group of unwilling men still
dominate the Senate of the
United States . ."
Noting t h a t Sbakespeare's
Hamlet complained "the time is
out of joint," Agnew declared,
"The political Hamlets are with
us in force - vacillating, waffl-
ing, wringing their hands, wal-
lowing in alienation, blaming
society f or inadequacies in
themselves and others."
