A PHOTOGRAPH copyrighted by Life Magazine shows a
National Guardsman aiming a pistol towards students at Kent
State University.
The photograph was taken at about the time Ohio National
Guardsmen fired rifles at Kent State students May 4. The guardsman
with the pistol appears to be an officer.
An Ohio National Guard official in Columbus said yesterday that
there is no indication that any weapons but the M1 rifles carried by
enlisted men were fired in the incident which killed four students and
wounded nine others.
JUDGE HARRY A. BLACKMUN'S nomination to the Su-
preme Court appears certain of confirmation.
When his nomination was brought up in the Senate yesterday,
there were only relaxed words of praise for the 61-year-old member
of the 8th U.S. Court of Appeals who was nominated to the Supreme
Court on April 15. This atmosphere was in marked contrast to the
tense and quarrelsome Senate which turned down President Nixon's
earlier nominations of Clement Haynsworth of South Carolina and
G. Harrold Carswell of Florida.
Because of the number of absent members, the Senate agreed
to postpone voting until 2:30 p.m. today. Both Democratic Majority
Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana and Republican Minority Leader
Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania said they knew of no opposition to Black-
mun.
VOTERS IN NEWARK, New Jersey will choose a mayor to-
day from among six candidates.
The candidates include incumbent Hugh J. Addonizio. who has
been indicted and is awaiting trial on federal extortion and income
tax evasion charges: two blacks and a militant white law and order
advocate.
None of the candidates has polled more than 34 per cent in
opinion surveys. The winner must have one more vote than 50 per
cent of those cast, so a runoff election is expected.
THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR plans to double
the number of inspectors of offshore oil operations in the Gulf
of Mexico by the end of this month.
Secretary of the Interior Walter Hickel had pledged the increase
in inspectors last March 25, after an investigation of a fire on a
Chevron Oil Co. platform had uncovered hundreds of violations of
federal regulations.
The department is seeking supplemental appropriations to pay
the new inspectors' salaries for the two months remaining in the
current fiscal year, and has already started hiring the additional 17
inspectors.
THE SUPREME COURT was asked yesterday to halt con-
struction grants to church-related colleges and universities.
Attorneys for the Connecticut Civil Liberties Union and the
American Jewish Congress said in an appeal that the 1963 Higher
Education Facilities Act did not permit grants to church-run colleges.
and even if the law authorized such grants, they are an unconstitu-
tional advancement of religion.
The 1963 law authorized federal funds for construction of facili-
ties "urgently needed" for the expansion of institutions of higher'
learning. The act specifically excluded "any facility which is to be
used for sectarian instruction or as a place of religious worship,"

IN SENATE:
Funds barred for-
action in Cambodia
WASHINGTON li -- The -Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee yesterday overwhelmingly approved legislation bar-
ring funds for all future U.S. military action in Cambodia -
on the ground, the sea and in the air.
The panel also acted to limit the Defense Department's
freedom of action under a military sales bill and voted to
plug what one senator called "a loophole big enough to drive
the whole Pentagon through." -
The actions came as Senate Democratic leaders scheduled
a month of debate on a series of foreign-policy measures,
most of them centered on the President's constitutional pow-
er to deploy U.S. combat forces overseas.

SAIGON ( - Completing a
60-mile run up t h e Mekong
River, about 30 South Vietna-
mese navy vessels docked at
the capital of Cambodia yes-
terday on an announced mis-
sion to unload supplies and
bring thousands of Vietna-
mese back to their homeland.

left South Vietnam on Saturday

South Vietnamese and U.S.-train,

strategic ferry landing at Neak
Luong on Highway 1.
In the group of vessels t h a t
reached the capital, Phnom Penh,
were five landing ship tanks -
these were expected to bring back
some of the 200,000 Vietnamese
living in the capital.
South Vietnamese sources re-
ported that six U.S. Navy advis-
ers went along to Phnom Penm
with the vessels. A spokesman for
the U.S. Command in Saigon said
he had no such information.
In Washington, a White House
spokesman said there is no change
in President Nixon's policy that
American personnel would not go
.beyond 21.7 miles into Cambodia
"and there have been no U.S4
personnel beyond t h a t," the
spokesman made that statement
in response to a question about
the report that advisers were in
Phnom Penh.
At the Pentagon, a spokesman
interpreted the flotilla's mission
as a relief operation rather than a
military exercise after the vessels
passed the limit set for combat
activity.
He said that if the South Viet-
namese expedition runs into ene-
my attack on the way back fro
Phnom Penh, he assumes the
South Vietnamese forces would
act to save the situation.
The vessels that reached Phnom
Penh were the lead element of a
flotilla of some 140 ships and
boats dispatched from Can T1%,
the military headquarters in
South Vietnam for allied forces in
the Mekong Delta.
The boats at Phnom Penh can
carry 5,000-10,000 refugees, sour-
ces said. Other boats in the flotilla
presumably will reach Phnom
Penh later.
The dispatch of the flotilla to
Phnon Penh to pick up refugees
apparently stems in part from a
campaign quietly launched by the
new Cambodian government to rid
the country of its Vietnamese i-
tizens, who may number as many
as 500,000.
Police and army troops in Cam-
bodia have been rounding up Viet
namese. Last month, Cambodian
soldiers killed hundreds of Viet-
namese in the provinces, claiming

The Establishment includes thousands of responsible business

actions. The Indo-China War has distorted our economy, stalled
