news briefs
By The Associated Press
SECRETARY OF STATE William Rogers reported to President
Nixon yesterday on his Middle East mission. Nixon called the trip
"useful in making progress toward the eventual solution of the prob-
lems in the area and in carrying the momentum of the discussions."
Joseph Sisco, assistant secretary of state in charge of Middle
East affairs, cautioned meanwhile against too much optimism that
settlement of the Suez canal issue is near.
"We are not on the brink of any settlement on the Suez canal,"
he told reporters. "This is an ongoing process that will take time."
A FORMER ARMY sergeant who says he saw Americans
massacre 30 women and children in a Vietnamese village in 1969
said yesterday he would not divulge the names of enlisted men and
low-ranking officers involved in the incident.
The former sergeant, Daniel Notley, said revealing the names
would enable the Army to make them "scapegoats" as he said it did
in the case of Lt. William Calley Jr.
Notley told a news conference he wants to put the responsibility
for the murders in the upper echelons "where it belongs."
THE CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION accused the federal govern-
ment yesterday of substituting empty promises for effective en-
forcement of anti-discrimination laws-at a point when "time is
running out."'
The commission reserved its harshest criticism for the Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban development, but said the blame for what
it called ineffective and unaggressive civil rights action must be
shared "by everybody from the President on down."
POSTAGE RATES are going up again despite a suit by maga-
zine and newspaper publishers charging that the increase is not
legal unless apiroved by the Postal Rate Commission (PRC).
The U.S. Postal Service, however, says the boost comes under its
authority to make temporary increases in postal rates pending a
recommendation of PRC.
The proposed increases will raise first-class mail to eight cents,
air mail to 11 cents, post cards will go up to six cents and some fourth-
class rates will increase by 10-20 per cent.
HAITIAN EXILE LEADER Paul Colas of New York yesterday
was granted a visa to enter Haiti in his attempt to "resolve the
problems of Haitian exiles."
Colas arrived in Miami yesterday after rumors spread in Haiti
and among Haitian exiles living in other nations that Haiti's 19-year-
old president, Jean Claude Duvalier, and his family were planning to
leave the country.
Col. Max Dominiquem, Haiti's ambassador to France, returned
to Paris Saturday after a four-month stay in Haiti. Duvalier saw him
off at the airport, and this apparently started the rumors that he
planned to leave.
A PETITION for the impeachment of President Nixon was ac-
cepted on the Capitol steps yesterday by Rep. Ronald Dellums
The petition bears the signatures of 400 Harvard Law School stu-
dents and calls for the impeachment of Nixon on the grounds he
exceeded his constitutional authority in waging the Vietnam war with-
out a declaration of war by Congress.
made a personal appeal to Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko
to agree to the release from prison of 77-year old Rudolf less.
After World War It, Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, was convicted by
the Nurenberg tribunal of crimes against peace and sentenced to life
imprisonment in Berlin's Spandau Prison. He is the only prisoner
left in the jail, which is guarded in turn by British, French, Soviet
and U.S. troops.
The Russians have continuously rejected the pleas of their allies
to release Hess on humanitarian grounds.
