SEEK UNITED EFFORT

Dems propose

PRESIDENT NIXON yesterday described a Senate vote to
halt development of the supersonic transport as "a devastating
mistake."
Scrapping the U.S project, he added, would cost the government
many millions, eliminate at least 150,000 jobs and perhaps "be a mor-
tal blow to our aerospace industry."
The Senate voted 52-41 Thursday to deny a Nixon request for
an additional $290 million to develop and test fly two prototypes of
the giant craft designed to fly 1,800 miles per hour.
A BIG FOUR COMPROMISE eliminating divided Berlin as
a source of East-West conflict could open the way for general
Western recognition of Communist East Germany, allied diplo-
mats said yesterday.
This report signals a new attitude on the part of NATO mem-
bers, who have never before been prepared to talk about acknowledge-
ment of East Germany's sovereignty.
The change is a direct result of West German Chancellor Willy
Brandt's efforts to normalize relations with its East European neigh-
bors.

EAST PAKISTAN sources said yesterday Indian police and
citizens attacked the enclave of Batigrach on Wednesday,
killing 300 persons and injuring 700.
They said that women were kidnaper, houses burned and property
looted. Among the dead were women and children, they added.
This occurs at the same time that Pakistanis are both recoveringI
from the devastating cyclone of Nov. 12-13, which killed hundreds of!
thousands, and voting in an important election to return the country
to civilian rule.

AN ISRAELI ARMY PATROL clashed with a group of{
Egyptians who had crossed the southern sector of the Suez
canal yesterday morning.
A military spokesman said that one Egyptian was killed and
there were no Israeli casualties.
It was the first time that forces from either side of the canal
had attempted to cross the waterway since the cease-fire went into
effect Aug. 7.
POPE PAUL'S NEXT TRIP may well be to an East European
communist country, Vatican sources said yesterday.
Such a trip would re-emphasize the Pope's continued efforts at
establishing a dialog with communist countries, and would follow
the pontiff's recent journey to the Far East.
There were indications, though, that the 73-year-old Pope would
not have enough time to take another lengthy trip, if rumors that he
plans to abdicate within two years prove true.

WASHINGTON (A') - Senate
Majority Leader Mike Mansfield
urged President Nixon yesterday
to join with congressional Demo-
crats in an effort to curb infla-
tion and unemployment. Other-
wise, he said, the issues will pro-
duce political bickering and "the
nation will suffer."
Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.)
1o n g a critic of administration
economic policy, said Nixon had
taken the first step toward using
the power and prestige of t h e
White House to curb prices and
thus halt inflation.
Mansfield, from Montana, de-
scribed as piecemeal t h e steps
Nixon announced to reduce oil
prices, and to curb costly wage
settlements in t h e construction
industry.
Proxmire endorsed the steps
Nixon is taking to increase the
supply of oil and thus lower its
price.
"These are steps I have long
advocated," Proxmire said in a
statement. "I endorse the Presi-
dent's actions, and I believe they,
will help stop price rises and get
the economy moving again."
"The words were a little strong-
er than usual," Mansfield said of
Nixon's speech to the National As-
sociation of Manufacturers. But
he noted that Nixon had singled
out two industries for special in-
flation-fighting steps.
"Senate Democrats are willing
and eager to work with the Presi-
dent to face up to the economic
issue and to keep it from becom-
ing partisan," Mansfieldsaidrin
an interview. "It will become par-
tisan if the administration and
Congress don't work in tandem to-
gether."
Specifically, Mansfield recom-
mended a wage-price freeze of 30
to 60 days as a first step toward
providing "t h e firm foundation
for a permanent policy."
The White House has rejected
repeated Democratic calls for
wage-price controls.
In addition, Mansfield said,
Nixon should invoke authority al-
ready voted him by Congress to
reduce interest rates.
Sen.-George D. Aiken (R-Vt.),
said Tuesday that the economic
situation already has reached the
depression stage. "I think it has
reached the proportions of a de-
pression," said Aiken, the Sen-
ate's senior Republican.

NEW YORK CITY residents were forced to travel in the big
city without the aid of taxicabs yesterday, as 36,000 cab drivers
continued to strike.
"We ain't rollin' nothing" was the word from the city's largest
taxicab fleet owner. The drivers are seeking raises to bring them
to parity with subway and bus workers, who earn $175-$200 a week,
compared to the taxi drivers weekly pay of $150.
Most Manhattan inhabitants seemed pleased when questioned
about the disappearance of the frenetic yellow automobiles. "Beauti-
ful," said a traffic cop. "Get rid of the buses and we'll be all set."

MADRID (AP) - West German
officials received a communication
yesterday from kidnaped Eugene
Beihl, saying he was well. Beihl
was abducted .Wednesday to pro-
test the military trial in Burgos
of 16 young Basque nationalists.
Demonstrations against the trial
continued in Spain, as about 15,-
000 workers defied the govern-
ment's state of emergency, decreed
Friday, and stayed on strike in
Burgo's province of Guipuzcoa to
protest the trial. A hunger strike
continued in Barcelona.
West German consulate officials
in Bilbao said they received a post
card in an envelope from Beihl,

U.S. STUDY IN VIETNAM
Report hits refugee programs

kidnaped by Basque terrorists, say-
ing he was well and "humanely
treated."
There was no indication of where
he was being held. The post card
was mailed in Vitoria, provincial
capital of Alava Province, about
60 miles south of San Sebastian
where Beihl was kidnaped four
days ago.
The kidnapers are said to have
warned that Beihl will face the
same fate of the Basques b e i n g
tried. Six of the defendants face
death sentences.
The government imposed the
state of emergency, allowing ar-
rests without warrants, in an at-
tempt to break up the sympathy
strikes and other disturbances.
The reports from Guipuzcoa
Province said that despite the con-
tinued walkout of the 15,000 there
were no disorders. But police were
reported making dozens of ar-
rests.
In Barcelona, 16 young men and
women entered the third day of
their "hunger strike until death"
in an attempt to halt the court-
martial of the Basques, advo-
cates of autonomy for their- re-
gion.
The 16 hunger strikers include
well-known local lawyers, doctors
and journalists. They occupied the
Spanish headquarters of the Uni-
ted Nations Association Wednes-
day and pledged to go without food

Ann Arbor police to
add two patrolwomen

unless the cases are transferred to
a civil court."
"We do not belong to any poli-
tical party," said Marcos' Plames,
30, a lawyer hunger striker. "We
all feel this is an issue of basic
human rights."
The seven-man court-martial in
Burgos rejected a petition from
one of the defending lawyers that
the trial be adjourned until norm-
ality is restored in Guipuzcoa Pro-
vince.
The defendants, who attend ses-
sions manacled and escorted by
armed police, include two Catholic
priests and three women.

WASHINGTON (IP) - Congressional investigat-
ors yesterday criticized the way U.S. and South
Vietnamese officials are handlfng programs in-
tended to assist millions of war refugees.
Findings of the General Accounting Office
(GAO) reflect "the warped sense of reality and
progress which pervades so much of our country's
activities throughout Indochina," Sen. Edward M.
Kennedy (D-Mass.), asserted in releasing the
report GAO made to the Senate Refugees subcom-
mittee he heads.
After years of war "and a continuing rhetoric
of progress" from official quarters, Kennedy add-
ed, the GAO report "finds a situation which con-
tinues to deteriorate" in the attempt to obtain a
successful pacificaion program keyed to rehabili-
tation of war victims.
On refugee facilities, the GAO reported there
are "considerable shortfalls in construction and
adequacy of needed facilities, such as housing,

classrooms, wells, medical facilities, medical serv-
ices and sanitation facilities."
Reporting on a temporary refugee camp at
Thanh Tay in Quang Nam province where 6,000
refugees have been since 1967, GAO said:,
"We found that the shelters were crudely con-
structed and that these people were living in very
crowded conditions. The camp was surrounded by
a fence and barbed wire . . . guarded by Vietnam
government military.
"We were informed that these people were all
Viet Cong sympathizers. We observed some wells,
one classroom, no latrines, and no medical facili-
ties. The people and their clothes were very dirty.
"The U.S. refugee adviser stated that these
people had received their 30-day food allow-
ance and that no other assistance had been pro-
vided them by the military."
This year, GAO added, about 64 per cent of the
refugee resettlement budget had been allocated to
provinces by June 1 but only 12 per cent had been
spent by province chiefs.

Two women-will begin training
this month for positions as patrol-
women with the Ann Arbor police
department.
The women,- who will graduate
fromtraining school in March of
next year according to a police
spokesman, will bring to three the
number of women police officers
on the force.
There are 186 male officers pre-
sently serving with the depart-
ment.
The spokesman said that the
women will undertake normal pa-
trol duty after graduation from
training school but will be used
specifically in cases where "women
are particularly qualified," such as
cases involving female suspects.
The women will be uniformed
and will carry side-arms and will

work together in a mobile unit.
The only woman officer pre-
sently working on the force is not
a patrolwoman, but a police-
woman. The difference, according
to the spokesman, is that a police-
woman works in plainclothes oh
detective assignments, while a pa-
trolwoman will undertake basically
the same duties as a male officer
on patrol duty.
The decision to hire the women
was taken after extensive investi-
gation of the experience of other
police agencies with women per-
sonnel, the spokesman said. He
cited the New Orleans Police De-
partment which assigns several
women to patrol duty.
The women who are entering
training school will receive an ex-
tensive ten-week course in driv-
ing, marksmanship, law and other
subjects.
