ACCORDING TO records of an OSS Policy Board
meeting on December 7, 1970, OSS provided $9,000 to
establish WCBN on the condition that "whatever
committee is to be supervisory over operating policy
for WCBN be composed of at least 50 per cent studen-

WORKERS AT the station argue that if the Broad-

who can be on the station and who can't, the committee
should open itself to the 50 per cent representation
originally specified by OSS.'

Floyd Miller, who sits on WCBN's Board of Direc-

Carter: U.S. has
proof of Cuban
role in Zaire

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter insisted yesterday there is "no
doubt" that Cuba helped train
Katangan rebels who invaded Zaire,
and he implored Cuban President Fidel
Castro to forbid further incursions.
"I would like very much for Mr.
Castro to pledge himself. . . to prevent
any further crossing of the Angolan
border which would permit future in-
vasions of Zaire," Carter told a
nationally broadcast news conference.
He also urged Castro to stay out of
Ethiopia.
DESPITE Castro's vigorous denials
of having aided the Katangan rebels,
Carter declared: "We have firm proof"
of Cuban involvement.
Castro has said publicly that Cuba
was not involved in the invasion last
month of mineral-rich Shaba Province,
and he contended that Carter has been
"confused and deceived" by his ad-

visors.
But Carter insisted yesterday that
Castro, who has admitted having ad-
vance knowledge of the invasion, could
have taken steps to prevent it.
"THE FACT IS that Castro could
have done much more had he genuinely
wanted to stop the invasion," the
President said.
Carter said the United States will not
consider any retaliatory measures such
as new travel or trade restrictions
against the Cubans, but will continue to
"acquaint the world with the hazards of
continuing involvement of the Soviet
Union and the Cubans in Africa."
Asked whether he was willing to meet
with Castro, Carter replied,
"NO, I DON'T' think it is ap-
propriate.
Speaking of the U.S. role in Africa,
Carter said he would not commit troops
but would "through peaceful means
provide strength to nations that do want
to be autonomous and see African
problems solved by African people
themselves."
In an opening statement, Carter
asked Congress to end the three-year-
old embargo against selling arms to
Turkey. He contended the embargo "is
not contributing to a settlement of the
Cyprus dispute."
CONGRESSH AD GOOD intentions
when it created the embargo, but lifting
it now "is essential to our hopes for
peace and stability in the eastern
region of the Mediterranean," Carter
said.
The President said he would seek tax
credits for both Greece and Turkey,
adding that he hopes the embargo will
be lifted by the end of the year.
Turning to his battle against in-
flation, Carter called anew for
congressional restraint on federal
spending. The President threatened to

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter said yesterday the federal
government won't open its treasury to
California communities that will lose
local revenues because of that state's
taxpayer revolt.
"I don't think there is any possibility
of our passing specific laws just to deal
with California ... We have no in-
clination to seek out California for
special treatment just because they
have lowered property taxes," Carter
said at a nationally broadcast news
conference.
EARLIER, Carter's chief budget ad-
viser, James McIntyre said the tax-
payer revolt that started in California,
but which may spread to other states, is
probably directed at Washington too.
"Looking to Washington for a bail-out

isn't going to be a viable or feasible
solution in the future," said McIntyre,
who is director of the Office of
Management and Budget.
It was the Carter administration's
first official assessment of the Califor-
nia initiative used by voters June 6 to
slash taxes. The measure limits proper-
ty taxes to one per cent of market value
and is expected to cut property tax
revenue by about 57 per cent.
Meanwhile, California Gov. Edmund
Brown urged the President to give in-
centives to states that save taxpayers'
money, instead of providing matching
grants only to states that spend tax
dollars on certain federally approved
projects.
"WHILE WE'RE not running to
Washington with our hat in our hand, I

would say that if the President wants to
have a balanced program, he should
give matching funds not only for state
and local spending, but for state and
local tax saving and right now the
federal program is the reverse," Brown
said.
"We are paid to spend more of the
people's money. We are not encouraged
to save and to husband the very scarce
public resources that we have."
Carter said the federal gwvernment
will monitor developments in California
very closely and did say, "We will ob-
viously help them" if a.crisis develops.
But he said a $5 billion state budget
surplus should help the state avert
serious problems for the next few mon-
ths at least,
