Senators to try
for pu lout date
WASHINGTON MA) - New Senate moves to set a date
for withdrawal of American forces from Southeast Asia
emerged yesterday after rejection by both House and
Senate of similar attempts.
Sen. John Pastore, (D-R.I.), told reporters he is draft-
ing an amendment that declares Congress wants all troops
out by July 4, 1972, without any mandatory features such
as a cutoff of funds.
First, however, the Senate will vote next Tuesday on a
bipartisan proposal that would cut off funds for U.S.
operations nine months af-
ter enactment, subject to an
agreement for releasing U.S.
prisoners. S Vietm

many requests for meetings.
However, as during the regular
academic year, he still meets
formally with his "cabinet"-
the seven vice presidents-once
each week.
And while he often works at
night during the regular year,
Fleming finds it generally un
necessary in the summer.
" 'im usually at the office the
same amount of time year-roni
but I don't work as inuch it nig
in the summer" he says. 'This is
because I have time to do icy
paperwork at the offie. Durig
the reguiar year, I save so rnaiy
meetings and other ac' ities to
occupy my days, that the nly
time I can do papesesi k is at
night."
Most of Fleming's major work
indicate to the American people
exactly how the Congress feels."
Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield said, "I think t he

this summer has involved execu-
tive appointments and budgetary
matters. He has spent much time
in Lansing lobbying for the Uni-
versity as the legislature pre-
pares its educational appropria-
tions for the upcoming fiscal
year.
In addition, Fleming says he
has been . closely involved this
year in Congressional matters,
since it is possible Congress
might adopt some kind of insti-

tutional aid formula, from which
the University would stand to
benefit greatly.
"Summer is partly a time in
which you try to catch up on the
backlog of problems which you
didn't have time to get to be-
fore, and partly a time to think
where you should b going in the
future," Fleming says.
Since his workisoed becomes
less as the summer progresses,
Fleming plans to take a vacation
or two before the start of the
fall term. Soon he will leave with
his family for England, where he
will attend a conference between
top British and American edue
tors. Then lie will go on to
Spain for ten days,. and backt
Ann Arbor.
Fleming likes the idea of keep-
ing the University in operation
throughout the year, and prediets
many more institutions will
shortly follow suit.
"My impression is that most
students and faculty members
like it more, too," he says.
"Yes," Fleming continues,
"the summer is certainly a more
relaxed, less pressured and more
informal time than the regular
academic year. The fact that the
weather permits us all so get
outside provides a pleasant vari-
ation on the theme of working."
But if the atmosphere is more
informal, Fleming's summer at-
tire does not show it. He gener-
ally wears a suit and tie to
work - just as he does during
the regular year.
