NEW ORLEANS, La. (/) - A
conference of the nation's may-
ors overwhelmingly reversed its
stand yesterday and endorsed
President Nixon's policy on Vi-

by Democratic Mayor Richard
Daley of Chicago.

The mayors cheered, stomped
their feet and shouted as Daley
climaxed the Vietnam debate
by saying, "In the name of God,
let us stand behind the Presi-

end it tomorrow."
Daley said, "No one will do
more to work against a Repub-

,than I will, but I don't think

out in the public because of
what was going on because of
this situation in Vietnam."
It was a rare and dramatic
appearance by Daley on the
floor of the conference. He was
not present last year when the
mayors voted for the first time
in their history to call for U.S.
withdrawal from Vietnam by a
specific date - Dec. 31, 1971.
A group of liberal big city
mayors tried to update that
resolution by changing the date
to Oct. 1, 1972, and adding a
provision that withdrawals be
condit'- 'd on release of U. S.
prison. .s of war by that date.
The pro-Nixon resolution
stated that, "All United States
air, land and sea forces shall be
withdrawn from South Vietnam
by a date certain and not later
than four months after the
conclusion of an internationally
supervised ceas" -fire throughout
Indochina, the release of all
prisoners and an accounting for
all those missing in action."
J. Marsh Thomson, an aide to
Vice President Spiro Agnew who
was among the federal offic-
ials here lobbying for the Presi-
dent's position on the war and
other issues said, "This is what
we hoped for. The mayors have
reacted overwhelmingly. T h e
vote was by cities of all sizes
and was bipartisan. The initia-
tives taken by the President last
year were recognized by the
Mayor Robert Harris said in
attacking the pro-Nixon reso-
lution, "We haven't accounted
for everyone missing from the
first World War. That provision
is not realistic."
Harris added tl, " did not
