WASHINGTON P --Supreme Court Jus-
tice WiUiam Douglas says his eight col-
leagues went beyond the law and the
custom of the high court by overturning
his decision on U.S. bombing of Cam-
Douglas' dissent attacks the legality of
the decision to allow continued bombing
that was reached by Justice Thorgood
Marshall, with the endorsement of the
seven other justices.
"THE COURT has unquestioned power
to reverse me; and although I disagree
with the court's action on the merits, that
is not the point of this dissent," Douglas
wrote in a dissent dated Aug. 4.
He accused the other members of the
court of resorting to "a Gallup poll" type
of inquiry to overrule him illegally.
Last month, a U.S. District Court judge
n Net'York roled the Cambodia bombing
unconstitutional and ordered it halted.
The U.S. Circuit Court in New York
blocked the effect of that decision until
it could hear a government appeal.
OPPONENTS OF the bombing then went
to Marshall asking him to reinstate the
district court order. Marshall refused.
They then moved on to Douglas who was
vacationing at his Goose Prairie, Wash.,
retreat. On last Saturday morning, Doug-
las reinstated the district court order, in
edest ordering a halt to the bombing.
,That order stood for less than seven
hours, The government hastily fashioned
a counterotion td olt Soordav after-
noon Marshall blocked the effect of the
district court order. While Marshall acted
alone, lte noted that all the other justices
save Douglas, agreed with him.
Douglas said at least six members of the
AP Photo court must sit to overturn the affirmative
aciton of a single justice.
"WHATEVER MAY BE said ton the
ptain John merits, I am firmly convinced that the
ris of New telephonic disposition of this grave and
e dg ,th- crucial constitutional issue is not per-
ue a bath- missible, "Douglas said in reference to
Marshal's contact with the other justices.
The central question turned on just what
Douglas did Saturday morning.
For one thing, he removed the stay
which the circuit court had placed on the
lower court order. But more importantly,
in his eyes, he had also issued an order
specifically reinstating the judgment of
n the district court.
jtHUS, DOUGLAS maintained, the court
took an illegal shortcut to overrule him.
's credit of- "A Gallup poll type of inquiry of widely
tion by the scattered justices is I thik a subversion of
but a denis- the regime under which I thought we
wo or three lived," Douglas said.
The legal tangle began with a suit
would make filed by Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman (D-N.Y.
S to receive and three Air Force officers who sought
OTC courses, to stop the bombing. On Wednesday, the
and Princi- U.S. Circuit Court in New York ruled 2-I
resently LSA in favor of the bombing which is scheduled
TC's Aerody to end Aug. 15 by congressional mandate.

Reduced in enrollment and prestige dur-
ing the campus anti-war movement, the
University's Reserve Officers Training
Corps (ROTC) program may regain some
lost ground this year.
In the works, according to Air Force
ROTC chairman Marvin Grunzke, are pro-
posals to re-extend credit to LSA students
for several ROTC courses here. The Air
Force branch is also pushing to begin an
ROTC program at the University's Flint
campus, Grunzke. says.
