U.S. raids
rail lines
in N. Viet
SAIGON (A')-American flyers
using laser-guided bombs brought
down two railroad bridges in
North Vietnam close to the Chi-
nese frontier and blasted eight
more bridges and two fuel de-
pots elsewhere in the country,
U.S. military spokesmen said
The attacks Monday on the
pair of bridges on Hanoi's north-
east rail line to China marked
the second day of strikes within
25 miles of the Chinese border.
The bridges 55 and 60 miles
northeast of the North Vietna-
mese capital were knocked out
just hours before Peking warned
the U.S. raids constituted "grave
provocations" against China. Air
Force F4 Phantoms hit the pre-
viously unscathed bridges with
2,000-pound bombs guided by
laser beams.
Air Force, Marine and Navy
fighter-bsombers flew 290 strikes
over the North on Monday and
damaged or destroyed two fuel
depots within three miles of the
nort city of Vinh, the U.S. Com-
mand announced. American po-
lots also hit eight other bridges,
including one under construction
26 miles northwest of Haiphong,
the command said.
U.S. B52 bombers pounded
communist supoly dumps near
the North Vietnamese port city
of Dong Hoi yesterday for the
sixth straight day. The raids 21
to 60 miles northwest of the de-
militarized zone were aimed at
destroying war supplies destined
for use by North Vietnamese
troops in the South.
Hanoi's official Vietnam News
Agency claimed the North Viet-
namese air force shot down two
U.S. F4 fighter-bombers over the
North on Tuesday and captured
several American pilots. The U.S.
Command did not report any
Ground action was relatively
light in South Vietnam and little-
progress toward breaking the 68-
day siege at An Loc was report-
ed. Refugees feeling the provin-
cial capital 60 miles north of
Saigon came under enemy fire
and a government relief force,
remained stalled o u t s i d e the
devastated town.
Allied officers estimate only a
handful of communist troops are
tying up the drive northward to

Soviet poet takes U' post

On Prachechny Bridge, where you and I
resembled the hands of a clock
embracing at twelve before
parting forever, not just a day-
here on Prachechny Bridge today
a fisherman suffering from a Narcissus complex,
forgetting his bobber, gapes
at his tremulous reflection.
The river makes him young, then makes him old.
First youthful features ripple forth,
then wrinkles run upon his brow.
He took our place. Oh well, he's right!
Of late everything that's lonely
is symbolic of a different time;
and that is an order for space.
him stare peacefully into our waves
and even recognize himself. Now
the river belongs to him by right,
like a house into which someone moved a mirror,
but never came to live.


Students, faculty given voice
in deciding /U' budget matters

University students and fac-
ulty gained a voice in deciding
University budgetary matters
rec'ntly with the establishment
of the Office of Budgets and
Consisting of a steering com-
mittee and three substantive
committees - budget priorities,
long range planning, and pro-
gram evaluation - the office
was formed as an economic
advisory unit to the University
The steering committee, is re-
sponsible for controlling and
coordinating the actions of the

Bomb Crater 4 demand
end to digging charges

Three of the Bomb Crater
Four, and 18 of their suppgrters
confronted secretary to the Uni-
versity Richard Kennedy and
other officials yesterday in a
vain attempt to have charges
against them dropped.
The Bomb Crater Four were
arrested June 5 for digging sim-
ulated craters on the Diag. They
are presently freed on personal
recognizance bond. Their trial
is setfor July 20.
John Goldman, one of the
four, told Kennedy, "The Uni-
versity is the criminal in this
case." Fe demanded that Uni-
versity end its "sought-after
military research" as well as dis-
miss charges against the four for
"malicious destruction of prop-
Kennedy answered that the
University had no present plans
to drop charges. "I guess those
people who dug were adequately
warned beforehand," he said.

Goldman then began an at-
tack on the University's involve-
ment in war-related research,
prodding University officials for
statements on it.
Jay Hack, one of those arrest-
ed, told Kennedy he possessed
an Air Force document describ-
ing a University project on syn-
thetic aperture radar research
for weapons delivery systems.
This project. he said, had
been rejected by the classified
research committee, but the
University had started work on
it anyway. University guidelines'
state that projects must not
have the specific intent to in-
jure human life.
Kennedy refused to give an
opinion on whether he thought
the University was violating its
own rules in that case. He said
that policies had been estab-
lished to deal with research done
at the University.
"If the guidelines have been

substantive committees. It will
be chaired by President Rob-
ben Fleming, and will have one
vice president; two deans, five
faculty members, and two stu-
dents nominated by SGC as
"The task of the Long Range
Planning Committee is to pro-
pose goals for the University in
the 1980's and 1990's, and sug-
gest the sequence of steps
which will be necessary in or-
der to attain these goals," ac-
cording to a report to the pres-
ident's office.
To accomplish these goals,
the committee is responsible for
informing itself about the goals
and operation of the University,
and for identifying new oppor-
tunities for future expansion.
The Long-Range Planning
Committee. as well as the other
two committees, consists of nine
faculty members, as many as
two deans, up to two vicepresi-
dents, and three students ap-
pointed by SGC.
The Program Evaluation Com-
mittee is responsible for re-
viewing programs which are al-
ready in operation and making
suggestions for possible chang-
The Budget Priorities Com-
mittee is responsibile for sub-
mitting recommendations for
budgetary priority issues, taking
into account information and
plans developed by the Long-
Range Planning and Program
Evaluation Committees.
According to David Heebink,
executive secretary, the priori-
ties committee's first job will be
to decide what items should be
cut from next year's budget if
the State Legislature decides to
allocate less to the University
than requested.
SGC member David Smith,
(Grad.), who is on the Steer-
ing Committee, is very critical

of the composition of the com-
mittees. He said that "at least
five students should have been
allowed on each committee" in
order to "represent the full
spectrum of student views. Stu-
dents have gotten screwed."
Heebink said that although
the "final power rests in the
hands of deans, vice-presidents,
and department chairmen," the
committees will function as
"very strong advisory commit-
tees to the administration."

After weeks of genuine
international intrigue, be-
hind the scenes maneuver-
ing and mounds of paper
work, Soviet poet Iosif
Brodsky is preparing a
trans - Atlantic journey to
accept a teaching post at
the University.
A surprising sequence of
events led to thes32-year-old
poet's decision to emigrate to
the United States.
On May 10, Brodsky was
called before the Soviet Office
of Visas and Registration. There
Russian officials noted that
Brodsky had received an invi-
tation from Israel to emigrate
six months earlier and they
asked why he hadn't accepted.
They told the poet that if he
decided to leave for Israel, his

Shady character
Bobby Byrne, whose identity was kept secret until the hearing
started, tells a House Select Committee on Crime yesterday that
he and his friends had fixed horse races at "just about every
track on the East Coast." He said he could "tie up a race" in 10
days to two weeks and that he would use drugs to slow down most
of the field.
