loses his credibility
THE SPECTRE of the credibility' gap is upon us again.
The recent revelation by a Cambodian army officer,
and confirmation by several American news oorrespon-
dents, that United States phantom jets h a d attacked
Communist forces in Cambodia with napalm and bombs
in support for the Cambodian army casts serious doubts
as to whether or not the Nixon administration has been
telling the American people the truth about its current
actions in Indochina.
When Richard Nixon was running for the Presidency,
one of his major campaign weapons was charging the
Johnson-Humphrey administration with deceiving t h e
American people on the war, as well as on other issues of
the day. After succeeding Mr. Johnson, Nixon diligently
attempted to avoid the same mistake.
NOT SURPRISINGLY, he has failed. T h e Cambodian
bombing is only the most blatant deception. When the
President announced that American forces would leave
Cambodia June 30, he also declared that U.S. planes would
act in Cambodia only as "continued interdiction opera-
tions against enemy lines of supply and communications
The use of American jets to carry out bombing in
support of Cambodian troops, no matter how desperate
the situation for the Cambodians, constitutes a new esca-
lation of the Indochinese conflict. The people of the Unit-
ed States are entitled to know the tuth about the status
of the war in Southeast Asia, and deserve more than the
denials of the truth and the half-truths supplied by the
United States command in Saigon, the Pentagon and the
Once again a U.S. President has abused the trust of
the American people.
Here we go again
Governor Milliken, usually a very quiet and reserved
governor, in fact, almost invisible, has suddenly declared
an all-out war on pollution and drugs-a very popular
position this year. It's odd that he never spoke out quite
so loudly before Sander Levin made such a good showing
in the Democratic gubernatorial primary.
By DONALD KUBIT
The screen version of the suc-
cessful off-Broadway play The
Boys in the Band is.now showing
at the Campus theater. When the
play opened, before the days of
gay liberation, it was met with
strong reaction by people who
thought it immoral to discuss
homosexuality. Now, gay libera-
tionists are opposing this film on
the grounds that it does not give
an honest representation of their
cult. They are right.
The Boys in the Band is an
antiquated view-of homosexuality.
The "boys" are guilt-ridden, frus-
trated indviduals, who ban to-
gether because deviants seek so-
lace in company. Perhaps, this
was the case five or ten years ago,
but the gay movement has aban-
doned the closet and is one of the
most active and aggressive move-
ments in America. The population
of over 4,000,000, homosexuals is
making their presence known.
The fault of The Boys in the
Band is that it shows trapped men
trying to.escape what their society
has labeled erroneous. Hostility
nurtured by guilt permeates their
gathering and in the end we are
shown men broken and befuddled.
The main event is a birthday
party thrown by debt-ridden Mi-
chael (Kenneth Nelson) for his
best friend-enemy Harold (Lean-
ard Frey). The guests include a
conglomeration of stereo-types in-
cluding a, flaming queen, an ex-
husband, a black handsome athlete
type and so on. The frivolity is
cooled when a straight (Peter
White) invades the premises in the
form of the hosts ex-college
After the straight has gotten
over the shock that his old buddy
is not what- he expected, Michael
decides they should all play a
telephone game, which will create
even greater anxieties and frustra-
tions. The result backfires on the
host and we see him for all his
Roman Catholic inhibitions. The
party has turned into a dissecting
table and the guests go their sepa-
rate ways, presumably back into
the shadows of the street.
The original Broadway cast re-
creates their respective roles and
the camp humi'r of gay bars is
repeated with a humorous and
cutting intent.. This brand of
humor is quick and decisively fun-
ny and it establishes the fact that
gays are capable of laughing at
As a movie The Boys in the
Band is an example of improper
directing. The intimacy of the
stage production is destroyed by a
camera technique that seeks in-
tensity by searching troubled
faces. But in lingering too long,
it fails to catch the reactions of
the other characters on stage.
What Director William Friedkin
has done is merely film the play
as he would see it if he was sitting
in the theater, thus he gets stuck
on items he believes to be the most
interesting, and misses the rest of
As a movie with brilliant wit
such as Cliff Gorman's portrayal
of the "flaming faggot" The Boys
in, the Band is enjoyable. How-
ever, as a perceptive look at homo-
sexuality, Mart Crowley's venture
is behind the times.

Circumventing the Senate
By BILL ALTERMAN
LAST WEEK'S signing of a new
defense agreement between
the U.S. and Spain is just one
more example of how this country
manages to get itself into trouble.
According to the treaty, Spain
will allow the U.S. to use its bas-
es inareturn for military and eco-
nomic aid to the Franco dictator-
Back in 1953 when the treaty
was first agreed upon, the state
department decided to term it an
"executive agreement" because as
such, it doesn't need approval of
Sen. William Fulbright (D-
Ark.) who was very unhappy with
the treaty, demanded that it eith-
er be submitted to the Senate for
approval or that public hearings
be held. State department offi-
cials informed congressional aides
'that "plans for an early signing
were being put off and therefore
there was no rush" in deciding
how to handle the proposal.
But, having temporarily delay-
ed any possible hearings, the
state department suddenly re-
versed its stand and made plans
to sign the treaty as soon as pos-
WE THUS HAVE the state de-
partment going ahead and mak-
ing policy on its own - deliber-
ately circumventing the -constitu-
tionally required approval of the
Nixon cannot afford to have the
treaty publicly debated. Many in
the Senate are actively opposed to
our ties with Spain, and at a pub-
lic hearing they might be able to
swing public opinion against the
administration's- stand. Having
dealt the administration this blow,
the Senate would be in a much
stronger position to reclaim their
perogative to make foreign policy.
As it is now, that policy is made
by a small homogeneous g r o u p
which lives in an outdated world
where Franco was one of the no-
blest allies of the U.S.
SIXTEEN YEARS AGO we also
viewed South Vietnam's President
Diem as our ally-he was against
communism and for democracy.
Coming just after the McCarthy
scare, the American public was
willing to go along with the deci-
sion to involve U.S. advisors in
Vietnam. At that time it seemed
like a good investment.
As the years passed, however,
our aid to Vietnam snowballed and
with it the government's propa-
NOW WE ARE involved in
Spain. Like the Vietnam of the
last decade, the U.S. Army is slow-
ly becoming entrenched. History
repeats itself as we continue to
solemnly sign military aid pacts
which deepen the U.S. military
It is because of the debacle in
Vietnam, that the administration

vestigations into the Spanish com-
mitment. The public is not in the
mood at the moment to allow for
any situation that clearly might
lead to more Vietnams. So the ad-
ministration, which still thinks
this is the era of "creeping com-
munism", will silently renew our
commitments to any country that,
professes anti-communism - no
matter how fascist or dictatorial
that country may be.
Unfortunately, if the present
policy continues, someday the U.S.,
armed with its military commit-
ments, will again battle a revolu-
