Require Congress' OK

ched a campaign yesterday to require.
the approval of a special congressional
committee before the president could
use nuclear weapons to respond to a
conventional Soviet attack on Western
Jeremy Stone, director of the 5,000-
member Federation of American
Scientists, argued that by using nuclear
weapons first, a president would, in ef-
fect, be declaring general nuclear war
and inviting an atomic attack on the
United States through escalation.
"WITHIN hours of the president's
first use of nuclear weapons, nuclear
retaliation could lead to the end of the
United States," he wrote in the fall
issue of Foreign Policy magazine.
Stone drew the support of a leading
constitutional scholar, Raoul Berger.
The former Harvard professor said
only Congress has the legal power to
declare war.
"Those who espouse a contrary
theory just want to have an unbridled
presidency, and what that led to is
Watergate," Berger said at a news con-
ference with Stone last week.
BUT THE Pentagon disagreed with
Stone's contention that the Constitution
prohibits the president from using

consent of Congress - if a NATO ally
is invaded.
The Defense Department's general
counsel, Chapman Cox, wrote Stone
that the alliance has succeeded in
deterring attack because the ootential
aggressor is convinced that the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization "is indeed
ready to use any of the weapons it
possesses, including nuclear weapons."
Involving Congress "would threaten
NATO's ability to deter Soviet
aggression" and "tend to undermine
NATO's deterrance policy," Cox added.
IN AN interview, Stone said all recent
presidents have threatened to use
nuclear weapons first in the event of
conventional hostilities in Europe. But

Stone said he did not question the
president's authority to use nuclear
weapons if the United States was under
nuclear attack.
But he said in a conventional war in
Europe, -the president would have
"hours and days" to consult with his
advisers and with the allied gover-
nments. "Obviously, there would be'
time enough to consult with Congress
itself or with a special committee ap-

Special to the Daily
DETROIT -- Vice President George Bush headed
the list of special guests at the Republican convention
here yesterday, but just before his speech a very
special guest made a unique motion on the convention
:Draped in one American flag and carrying another
in his trunk, Jack the Live Elephant was slowly
making his way through Cobo Hall. Although Jack
appeared happy to be his party's mascot,. he wasn't
too proud to relieve himself right in front of a group of
THAT MESS was quickly covered up with
newspaper by convention organizers, and the 1,800
people in the hall turned their attention to Bush's
words. Another interesting observer in the hall - this
one talked and only walked on two legs - was Arch-
duke Karl von Habsburg, a law student at Salzburg
University in Austria.

Von Habsburg, whose grandfather was the last
emperor of Austria-Hungary, said Bush gave "an ex-
cellent speech." He said he was particularly im-
pressed by Bush's statements on defense. "It was
good that he mentioned the stationing of the missiles
in Germany."
In his work with the German parliament, von Hlab-
sburg said he has sampled the opinions of West Ger-
mans on the deployment of American Pershing II
missiles and found that the well-publicized demon-
strators who oppose the missiles do not represent the
majority of Germans.
"THAT GROUP of demonstrators can be paid to
demonstrate on anything, and will say anything," he
explained. Von Habsburg is confident that Bush and
President Ronald Reagan are seen as friends in West
"Germans are fond of the American executives,"
he said. Germans are also fond of the support from
the American military, according to the law student,.

but he believes the European countries should help
carry the burden of defense.
"I think it's ridiculous for 220 million Americans to
defend 250 million Europeans, we appreciate the
American military support, but I think Europeans
should work better together to improve th ir defen-

elephant, listen to speeches, or bump into the gran-
dson of Austria - Hungary's last emperor, there
were plentyi of other things to do around Cobo Hall.
TH ERE WAS a $25 per ticket reception where
delegates, but not the elephant, could drink vodka,
wine, cognac, or gin and listen to Bush drum up sup-
port for the Republican Party of Michigan and urge
delegates to give their time to the presidential cam-
paign to ensure a Reagan-Bush victory.
Following the luncheon the delegates returned to
the convention floor for the nominating speeches and

spends the money. "They appropriate

The administration will continue to
spend money on defense until it no
longer becomes necessary to spend the
money, he said.
Bush said he would favor holding a
constitutional convention which could
r-equire a balanced budget. However he
said this convention should be limited to
one issue - the budget - and not school
