House OKs Senate bill to

ban Cambodia, Laos

bombing
WASHINGTON 4'- The House all but
completed yesterday a cutoff by Congress
of all funds for the U.S. bombing in Cam-
bodia.
It shouted approval of the Senate-passed
cutoff after dramatically rejecting on a
tie vote of 204 to 204 a proposal to delay
the cutoff until Sept. 1.
PRESIDENT NIXON will have ten days
after he receives the bill containing the
cutoff to either halt the bombing or veto
the measure.
It first must go back to the Senate for
final approval and then go through a form-
al printing procedIre that takes one or two
days before it goes to the President.
At the California White House, spokes-
man Gerald Warren noted the administra-
lion had strongly opposed the legislation
but said he would "withhold comment on
what the President tay do."
SENATE MAJORITY leader Mike Mans-
field (1-Mont.) said he doubted Nixon
would veto the $3.4 billion second supple-
mental money bill to which the cutoff was
attached -- but iowed that if the bill is
vetoed the mone will not be reapproved
st the Senate.
The Iiouse apprveelthe Senate's amend-
ttment prohibiting use of any money the
liPentagon has for "combat activities in,
over or from off the shores of Cam-
bodia or in or oier Laos."

Photo the bombing cutoff originally approved by
the Senate 63 to 19, said President Nixon
would "throw this nation into a consti-
tutional impasse if he continued the bomb-

Supreme Court rules
in a historic ruling yesterday the Su-
preme Court said tax deductions for par-
ents of private school children violate the
IF irst Amendment provision on separation
of church ind state. Also struck down
were programs providing tuition reim-
bsirsetient to parents and state payment
for state-ordered tasks like attendance
keeping. Catholic leaders throughout the
country have condemned the ruling and
said they will seek new ways of aiding
parochial school children. In another im-
portant ruling, the Supreme Court rejected
Nixon's appeal to make people living in
communes ineligible for food stamps. The
court said the law requiring that all mem-
bers of a household must be related in
order to receive food stamps was invalid.

que declaring that prospects are favorable

tween the United States and Russia. Brezh-
nev, fresh from his talks with Nixon,
starts meetings today with President Pom-

ination.

The trial date for a lawsuit filed against
Ann Arbor's controversial non-returnable
bottle ordinance has been rescheduled for
November causing a five-month delay in
the case, City Attorney Edw t Pear re-
vealed during last night's City Council
meeting.
Responding to questions raised by Coun-
cilmember Jerry DeGrieck (HRP - First
Ward), Pear confirmed that the hearing
had been shifted from this Wednesday to
November 7.
THE CITY ATTORNEY'S office prev-
iously indicated the court decision could
set constitutional precedents influencing
other attempts to enact similar legisla-
tion.
The ordinance requires retail merch,-,nts
within the city limits to collect deposts
on all beer and soft drink containers theya
sell and redeem such containers presented
to them.

WASHTENAW COUNTY JAIL
New sheriff brings reform

By KATHLEEN RICKE
Within ninety days, twenty-five selected
inmates of the Washtenaw County Jail
may be moving into a new residential
penal center.
The center, financed by a federal grant,
will serve as an alternative to the present
jail system by allowing inmates to work
at regular jobs and attend classes during
the day, returning to the center at night.
TTHE RESIDENTIAL center is one of
the reforms that has been planned by
newly-elected Sheriff Fred Postill and his

administration since Postill took office in
January.
Some of the other changes already in
effect at the jail include: a complete re-
hauling of the meal planning by a trained
dietician, construction of a library inside
the jail, provision of a television for
every cellblock, installation of time clocks
which must be punched by the corrections
officers every half hour to assure that they
have been on the cellblock, medical care
available daily for inmates, as well as
psychological counselling, and nightly
classes for inmates in academic and oc-

cutpsutional subjects.
"Many of the problems that we en-
counter are inherent in the present penal
system," says Molly Reno, a reresenta-
tive of the Inmate Services Pruogram,
"bitt we are working on a co-mmunity-
based alternative to prison."
"PRISON GIVES A guy nothing-sends
him back to the same lack of having that
pat him there in the first place," she
claims.
