Nixon troop move
WASHINGTON (A The Justice
Department yesterday told the
Supreme Court President Nixon's
dispatch of troops to Cambodia
was based on foreign policy ques-
tions and political issues that are
beyond judicial review.
The departnient made the as-
sertion in opposing a New York
soldier's plea for a temporary in-
junction to bar his shipment to
Speaking for the government,
Solicitor General Erwin N. Gris-
wold said the soldier, Pfc. Malcolm
A. Berk of Queens, cannot chal-
lenge the legality of an action by
the commander in chief, even on a
claim Nixon violated the Consti-

tution by acting without a dec-
laration of war.
"The determinations of the
President to take such action was
nc'cessarily made in the light of
the circumstances actually exist-
ing," Griswold said.
"This involved delicate ques-
tions of foreign policy of the sort
which have long been treated as
raising poliiical issues not meant'
for judicial re-examination." j
Griswold cited several decisions
to support his position, including'
a ruling by the Supreme Court in
1950 in an enemy alien case.
Last Saturday Justice Byron R.'
White temporarily blocked Berk'sa
shipment to Vietnam. Griswold's
memorandum opposed issuance of
a temporary injunction by Jus-
tice John M. Harlan, who has
supervision over the case.
Berk's suit was brought earlier
this month by Theodore C. Soren-r
sen, a candidate for the Demo-
cratic senatorial nomination in
New York. The hearing is sched-I
uled for Wednesday in the U.S.
Circuit Court in New York City.-j

Hussein made a major concession to
the guerrillas Thursday, when he dis-

WASHINGTON (JP)--Nixon administra-
tion forces indicated yesterday they may
make just one further Senate effort to
tone down proposed restrictions on U.S.
operations in Cambodia.
It would be aimed at a provision that
could block U.S. financial support for ef-
forts by Thailand and other Asian na-
tions to send troops and advisers to
bolster the shaky Cambodian govern-
But debate would not likely be pro-
longed, and the Senate, weary from five
weeks on the issue, is expected to take
final, favorable action next week on the
Cooper-Church amendment curbing funds
after July 1 for U.S. operations and mili-
tary aid in Cambodia.
That would throw the issue to a Sen-
ate-House conference, where House con-
ferees will try to delete any restrictions
on presidential authority in Southeast
The Senate meanwhile turned to other
aspects of the military sales authoriza-
tion bill-vehicle for the Cooper-Church
amendment-and defeated two moves
that opponents said could have hampered
U.S. efforts to aid Israel.
By a vote of 56 to 6 it rejected a pro-
posal by Sen. John J. Williams (R-Del)
to strip all of the money from the bill
and require item-by-item requests for
shipments of military arms and equip-
Then it voted 59 to 1 against a second
Williams amendment to delete a provi-
sion expressing congressional support for
arms credits for Israel.
Sen. Robert P. Griffin (R-Mich) the
assistant Republican leader, said in an
interview he plans to "do a little work
and see where the votes line up" before
deciding whether to challenge the Coop-
er-Church provision proponents say is
intended to prevent the United States
from underwriting the use of Thai mer-
cenaries in Cambodia.
Griffin said he had debated whether
it would be futile to call up any further
amendment after Thursday's 52-47 vote
against a key administration-backed
amendmient to dilute the Cooper-Church
But he said additional soundings con-
vinced him he should bring . up the
amendment. As the provision now stands.
he said, "It means we can't help any-
body who wants to help Cambodia."-
A vote on the amendment could come
Tuesday or Wednesday.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. 1P)- The "San
Diego 15," a group of reservists who have
refused to comply with the Marine Corps'
haircut policy, face military trials today.
Six of the reservists have demanded
special court martials' and, -if convicted,
could face six-month prison sentences
and bad conduct discharges.
The other nine will be tried by lesser
summary court niartials in which only
one officer will hear each case. The trials
are scheduled for nearby Camp Elliott,
where the 4th Tank Battalion holds its
weekend drills every month.-
Among the defendants is David Lopez.
