Senate rejects Korea troop withdrawal

(Continued from Page1)
Senate Republican Leader How-
ard Baker.
"I do not think it should be
taken as legislative intent that
this in any way approves-tacit-
ly or directly-an endorsement
of a policy of withdrawal."

Byrd agreed but fought suc-
cessfully to prevent striking of
the language from the bill en-
tirely, lest this be interpreted as
a direct repudiation -of the Car-
ter policy.
THE SENATE voted 68-26 to

table an amendment by Sen.
Robert Dole (R-Kan.) which
would have sent the legislation
back to committee with the im-
plied instruction to strike refer-
ences to reduction of U.S.
ground forces.
At the White House, presiden-

tial Press Secretary Jody Powell
applauded rejection of the Dole
amendment, which Powell said
would have been a "repudiation
of the President's policy on
Korea."
Powell said that Carter sup-
ports consultation with Con-

gress, commenting the Presi-
dent "has already indicated he
would just love to do that."
AND BYRD himself said he
believes that the withdrawal and
reduction of troops should come
gradually on a phased basis. It
should be carried out in close
consultation with Congress and
the U.S. allies-particularly Ja-
pan.
Senators struggled with the
wording of the Byrd amendment
through more than four hours of
debate.
SEN. GEORGE McGovern (D-
S.D.), the bill's floor manager,
supported the original wording
and called the President's with-
drawal plans "responsible and
prudent."
But other senators expressed
doubt whether withdrawal might
encourage a North Korean in-
vasion of the South, "point a
dagger" at Japan, stir up Japa-
nese militarism and pose a po-
tentially costly decision on what
to do with the returning troops.
Baker said he was "frankly
appalled" at finding that the
bill contained language in sup-
port of the proposed withdrawal.
Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz.) said, "I am convinced
that this action can lead to war
in South Korea."
Goldwater said C o n g r e s s
should ask the President to state
formally what Goldwater called
"this rather ridiculous Korean
withdrawal" policy.

Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) Vice President Chris
Bachelder expressed MSA's
concern to the Regents about
mandatory student participa-
tion in the HiMO. Bachelder said
students may have some "ser-
ious reservations" about the
proposal and asked that stu-
dents be given a voice on the
committee researching the pro-
posed HMO.
Also yesterday, Don Canham,
Director of the Board of Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics,
spoke to the Regents about re-
arranging the Athletic Board's
make-up to allow another seat
for a woman alumnus. A report
wil be written on this subject
for next month's Regents meet-
ing.
During the Public discussion
session yesterday, a group of
students protested against the
University's involvement in
South Africa through their stock
portfolio.
The Regents meet again this
morning at 9:00 a.m. for a vot-
ing session.
