Controversy over Fuller I
WASHINGTON ( -- President Nixon's offer to pull all
U.S. forces out of Vietnam four months after an interna-
tionally supervised total Indochina ceasefire and release
of American prisoners was endorsed by the House Foreign
Affairs Committee yesterday.
Chairman Thomas Morgan (D-Pa.) joined the minority
and said, "I believe there is an excellent chance we can
change it on the floor to order U.S. withdrawal, without
$' pinning it on a total Indochina cease fire."
As adopted by a 19 to 18 vote, the amendment became
the first end the war proposal ever approved by the com-
mittee. However, it does not go nearly as far toward a con-
gressionally mandated end to the fighting as have several

The Fuller Rd. Pool contro-
versy finally cause to an end
last weekend when the Univer-
sity transportation department
quietly initiated bus service to
the recreational facility.
The battle over whether the
transportation department should
provide service to the pool has
raged since last October when
residents of Northwood apart-
ments on North Campus first re-
quested the stop be installed.
Disagreement flared into the
open last month when the North-
wood tenants, impatient with the
lack of progress on the question,
staged a "ride-in" on the bus
demanding it stop at the pool.
The action was followed by a
flurry of administrative memos
between the Housing and trans-
portation departments and a
