Summer school isn't what it used to be. V
We've compressed over 330 courses in fully accredited graduate
and undergraduate programs into easy-to-take day or evening
sessions.Over a short two month period.
Because the staff at Roosevelt has planned-your courses won't
interrupt what you have planned (work or mellow moments).
The sun feels great on your back while reading at the beach.
An interesting way to get something accomplished-we think.
A little class now could give you a lot later.
Firstsummerterm begins June 22.
Second summer term begins August 3.
Evening classes begin June 22.

PRESIDENT NIXON proposed to Congress yesterday legis-
lation to strengthen the authority of the Coast Guard in protect-
ing against oil spills.
Nixon also requested ratificiation of three international agree-
ments to combat oil pollution in international waters and said he
would seek a $35 million appropriation to establish an already author-
ized revolving fund to clean up oil spills.
The President's proposal would allow the Coast Guard to "control
vessel traffic in the inland waters and the territorial seas of the
United States."
It would also empower the Coast Guard to regulate handling and
storage of dangerous cargoes on the waterfront, to set safety require-
ments for waterfront equipment and facilities, and to establish safety
zones or other "controlled access areas" in and near U.S. ports.,
FIRST CLASS MAIL will no longer be moved by air in all routes
of 150 miles or less, airlines spokesmen announced yesterday.
According to the president of Air Transport Association, Stuart
G. Tipton, the action taken by the Post Office Department is "an
example of false economy," which will "result in a deterioration of
the quality of frst class mail service at the time when the U.S.
postal service is in need of improvement."
The Post Office denied this charge saying "We expect no serious,
significant effect."
The regular 10-cent air mail service, which assures a letter of prior-
ity movement by air, will not be affected.

ARTHUR J. GOLDBERG, the former U.S. ambassador to
the United Nations, called yesterday for the immediate admission
of Red China and the divided countries of Germany, Vietnam and
Korea to membership in the United Nations.
Addressing a special national convocation opening the observance
of the United Nation's 25th anniversary, the former delegate called
for universality of membership to strengthen the U.N. and urged
all countries to turn to the U.N. with "a will to make it work" rather
than to rely on unilateral actions.{
He referred to the U.S. involvement in Vietnam and Cambodia
as a "tragedy" and a "mistake," adding, "Our government should ask
itself not how the U.N. can help it do what it wants to do in Vietnam
-but how to conform its Vietnam policy to its U.N. commitments.
COMMUNIST CHINA'S FIRST SPACE SATELLITE has stop-
ped sending signals, Germany's BochunmInstitute reported yester-
day.
Director Heinz Kaminski said failure to pick up any signals from
the satellite since Saturday indicated its transmission power had
either broken down or been used up.
Kaminski said the institute received signals regularly from the
satellite after its launching April 14, but that the solar batteries used
to transmit may have had a life of only about three weeks.
LENORE ROMNEY says her husband's decision to help fight
inflation by returning 25 per cent of his $60,000 salary as secretary
of Housing and Urban Development already has resulted in some'
penny pinching.
"We're being extra conservative these days," Mrs. Romney told
newsmen in Detroit, Tuesday. "We don't take vacations, we don't
have a maid, and George helps me with the dishes," she added.
Mrs. Romney, who seeks the Republican nomination for the U.S.
Senate in Michigan, had no comment on whether she would follow
her husband's lead in returning part of her salary if she is elected.
"I'm not in this campaign for the salary," she said. "I just want to
make my voice heard."

SAIGON A -- Thousands of
South Vietnamese infantry-
men plunged into Cambodia
on a new front yesterday in a
drive to smash the last of the
known North Vietnamese and
Viet Cong sanctuaries near
the border.'
Their target was the Communist
command's B3 front, which con-
trols all North Vietnamese d
Viet Cong operations in the
tral Highlands provinces of South
Vietnam.
The assault troops, acco,,,pand
by U.S. advisers, met no resistance
by midafternoon. At last repOrt
they were consolidating night de-
fensive positions about 10 mles
inside Cambodia.
It was the 13th front opened
by the allies since the Cambodian
offensive was announced officially
at the end of April. The new oper-
ation centered in an area 110125
miles northeast of Saigon.
In southern Cambodia, a 10,000-
man South Vietnamese task force,
thrusting north from the Mekong
Delta in tanks, armored vehices
and 20 navy vessels, stormed A
North Vietnamese base camp and
smashed a fleet of 100 sampans,
military spokesmen said. Ninety-
six North Vietnamese and Viet;
Cong soldiers were reported killed
while South Vietnamese losses
were 8 killed and 25 wounded.
The new operation raised to be
tween 25,000 and 30,000 the num-
ber of South Vietnamese troops
now fighting in Cambodia along a
600-tulle stretch of border frth-
the Central Highlands to t. e
southern Mekong Delta, More
than 10,000 Americans also are
operating across the frontier
The allied commands repotd
that 8,338 North Vietnamese ad
Viet Cong have been slain in Cam-
bodia so far and more than 130,
enemy weapons, 1,500 Ion of
munitions and nearly 3,000 tons of
rice cap.ured.
The Americans have lost 162
men killed and 664 wounded.
South Vietnamese casualties were
reported at 580 killed and 2,007
wounded.t
An Associated Press coriespnn
dent reported from Southern
Cambodia that officers hoped the
operation would cut off the fl w
of supplies to North Vietname e
and Viet Cong units in the moun-
tains region of South Vietnam.
Farther north, armored troops
of the U.S. 25th Infantry Divis-
ion clashed twice yesterday with
North Vietnamese in the Fh
hook area near the Cambodiah
town of Mimot.
Field reports said a company of
Americans suffered light casual-
ties, when it was attacked by small
arms and rocket-propelled gre-
nades.

WASHINGTON (A - A brief-
case brigade of 1,200 lawyers
spread out over Capitol Hill to-
day to lobby for an end to the
war in Indochina. Practically all
were from New York, with some
from Philadelphia, Washington
and a few from other cities.
The lawyers, most of them
young, gathered first on the steps
of the Capitol for welcome speech-
es from New York's Republican
sehators, Jacob K. Javits and
Charles E. Goodell.
Javits told the crowd their ac-
tion was "probablyrunique in the
annuals of our country."

"I pay tribute to you for what
you're doing," Goodell said t
Both said they hoped' President
Nixon will take action toend the
twar,. Goodell added, "But we've
gone through seven years and I
think Congress has to act."
Francis Plimpton, former U.N.
ambassador and president of the
Association of the Bar of the City
of New York, told the group it
must emphasize that Congress not
only has the right but the duty
to act to end the war,
The lawyers carried briefcases,
and only a scattering w o r e the
peace buttons that war protesters
usually wear.
Led by Plimpton and Ramsey
Clark, former U.S. Attorney Gen-
eral, the attorneys broke up into
teams for visits to each House and
Senate member. Some admkinis-
trative offices were also included
on the schedules which each pro-
tester carried.
Meanwhile, some 1500 local law-
yers set up a noon session in a
church to plan a separate pro-
gram.
Congressional offices have been
filled for 2 weeks with students
lobbying for an end to the war.

A TRADITION ENDS

Speaker
By The Associated Press
Speaker of the House John
W. McCormack announced yes-
terday he will not seek reelec-
tion to Congress in November.
The 78-year-old Massachusetts
Democrat told newsmen he had
made his decision to retire prior
to the 1968 election, adding,
"Mrs. McCormack and I have
been looking forwardto a period
of rest and relaxation."
"On May 29 I will have been
speaker the second longest in
the history of our country," Mc-
Cormack boasted yesterday,
adding, "the exception being my
late dear friend, Sam Rayburn."
The speaker rose to power in
the classic tradition of the lowly
toiler in the wards who, through
hard work and loyalty to the
party organization, made it to
the top.
Once a fiery, energetic floor
leader who helped shape the
momentous legislation of the
New Deal, he became in the last
few years the symbol of what
many feel is wrong with Con-
gress-that it is too old, too deaf
to new ideas, too concerned with
old loyalties to meet new chal-
lenges.
Despite mounting demands
by younger members for a larger

role in running the House. Mc-
Cormack stayed with the elosed-
door, close-crony, don't rock-
the-boat approach he inherited
from his predecessor, Sam Ray-
burn, in 1962.
Still hale and hearty despite
his age, McCormack resented
criticism that he was too old
and refused to concede to ac-
cusations that he was out of
tune with the times.
More than by such criticism,
he was shaken last year by dis-
closures that his trusted chief
aide, Martin Sweig, was under
investigation for using the
speaker's office to influence
government decisions.
Sweig, along with Nathan
Voloshen, a close friend of Mc-
Cormack's, was indicted on in-
fluence-peddling charges and
the forthcoming trial is known
to bear heavily on McCormack's
mind.
An austere man who has given
much of his salary to charity,
McCormack prides himself on
his reputation for honesty. He
has insisted he knew nothing
of Sweig's and Voloshen's ac- {
tivities.
McCormack suffered another
personnel blow when his wife
became seriously ill recently.
They will celebrate their 50th
wedding anniversay next month.
Their devotion to each other is
a Washington legend.
McCormack came to the na-
tion's top legislative office by

the rough road of Soutth Boston
Irish Democratic politics.
The son of a bricklayer and
stonemason whodied when
McCormack was 13, the future
speaker finished the eighth
grade and then went to work
as a $3-a-week messenger, sup-
plementing his earnings with a
paper route.
A consistent bread-and-butter
liberal, McCormack supported
innumerable social measure
during the Roosevelt New Deal
and the subsequent years. At
the same time, he has backed
incumbent presidents consis-
tently on foreign policy-up to
and including the present furor
over President Nixon's Cam-
bodian decision.
His party loyalty, however,
has never been questioned. He
and the Kennedys held allegi-
ance to different political clans
within the Massachusetts Demo-
cratic party and brushes result-
ed. The most searing was Ed-
ward M. Kenedy's victory in a
Democratic senatorial primary
over Edward McCormack, the
childless speaker's nephew,
But McCormack, who 1ad act-
ed as a kindly party elder to the
young John F. Kennedy, never
wavered in his support of Ken-
nedy as President.
For more than a year after
Kennedy's assassination McCor-
mack was next in line to Lyndon
B. Johnson for the presidency,
as the succession law stood then.
