Labor-backed anti-war groups
sponsor meeting in Cleveland

You. can't get ever ything you want .
Alice Brock chats with a neighborhood child in the yard of her
home in Lenox, Mass. where she disclosed she is scrapping her
plans to open a second "Alice's Restaurant." She says she can't
live down her reputation as a dope-taking, free-loving woman as
portrayed in the movie. "Alice's Restaurant," a highly successful
Arthur Pen movie starring folk singer Arlo Guthrie. Local
citizens had expressed the rear that the restaurant would become
a hang-out for "hippy" types. Mrs. Brock said she has no plans
for ever going into the restaurant business again.

An "emergency" national anti-
war conference called for this
weekend by a Cleveland peace
group has been backed by a num-
ber of labor leaders, among them
Gus Scholle, president of the
Michigan AFL-CIO.
The "National Emergency Con-
ference Against the Cambodia-
Laos-Vietnam War" will open to-
day at Cuyahoga Community Col-
lege in Cleveland and will last
through Sunday. The purpose of
the conference is to. organize sum-I
mer and fall offensives for the
anti-war movement.
Scholle and 12 other area lead-
ers, including Tom Tunner, presi-
dent of the Metropolitan Detroit
AFL-CIO and Grady Glenn, pres-
ident of the UAWs Ford Local
600 in Dearborn have written a*
letter endorsing the conference
and encouraging the labor move-
ment to become involved in pro-
tests of the Vietnam War.
"The American l a b o r move-
ment," the statement from the
union officials reads, "can no
longer avoid comning to grips with
the unconstitutional, undeclared
war in Southeast Asia, except at
its own peril and at the peril of
the United States . . . the time
has come for responsible union
leaders not only to speak out but
to act."
The Cleveland conference or-
ganizers have said the number of
laborrunion officials endorsing the
conference has risen to 22.
Scholle spoke at a press confer-
ence held by the Detroit Coalition
to End the War last month to an-
nounce the conference. He de-
clared at that time that labor
leaders have a "moral responsibil-
ity" to help organize protesters.
Vice President Spiro Agnew will
be speaking Saturday night at a
$250-a-plate R e p u b 1 i c a n fund
raising dinner, and will be met by
a demonstration organized by
planners of the conference. I

WASHINGTON (R ')- Although
President Nixon has said "the
great majority" of U.S. forces
would be out of Cambodia by now'
authoritative sources say half the
number of American troops sent
into that nation is still there.
The President also has promised
to have all American troops out

sources said about 10,000 American
troops remain in Cambodia "still
searching, still sweeping and still
removing enemy supplies" from
the jungle sanctuaries along the
South Vietnamese border.
In his May 8 news conference,
Nixon said: "The great majority
of all American units will be out
by the second week of June."
The Defense Department has
said the U.S. troop level in Cam-
bodia reached 20,000 men soon

The White House denied this

pledge. A spokesman contended
the President had merely voiced
an expectation based on field re-
ports from Saigon.
Since the Cambodian operation
began with the announced purpose
of cleaning out communist sanc-

Pentagon have used different fig-
ures on the number of troops in-

LONDON (PA--Edward Heath will become prime minister
at the head of a new Conservative government, on the basis
of incomplete but indicative election returns available at
dawn today.
It was evident that the Conservatives had made a stun-
ning comeback in yesterday's election, with Heath setting
the pace in much the way that Harry S. Truman pulled suc-
cess out of predicted defeat in the 1948 U.S. election.
The outcome was one of the greatest electoral surprises
in many years, and the pollsters who had Harold Wilson going
back to No. 10 Downing St. were hiding their heads.
As prime minister, Wilson had a 65-seat majority in the
House of Commons when he called this election in an effort
to give Labor a total of 10
years in power.
But on the basis of results de-
clared early today Wilson had lost
his majority. Computer projections
