Sam Brown, chairman of thi ISA supervisory board, told a news! conference that some o he NSA officers were aware o he student group's association with the CIA and gathered sen sitive information "and report ed it to their CIA counterparts.' The information, he said dealt with personalities and pol tics in student organization; ibroad, rather than hard intelli [ence. Brown reported some of the dealings with the Central Intelli- ;ence Agency at the close of an anergency session of the NSA ward prompted by disclosure iat the CIA had subsidized VSA overseas programs for 15 ears. Brown said the CIA had used ome 20 foundations and indi- idjials as cover to channel unds into the NSA — the larg- tion, the newspaper said, was est college student organization in the country. Brown, a Harvard divinity udent, said the board was shocked at the ethical trap young men of great integrity were placed in" by the intelli gence agency. Earlier in the day, a House Armed Services CIA subcom mittee praised the CIA action and said it had been needed to combat Communist influence in student groups overseas. The espionage agency made no attempt to exert direct con trol over the student group Braw.n said, but did have "mon subtle influence." The CIA also "may have at tempted to influence selection o officers," Brown said. Over the years, Brown said only a few NSA officers were taken in on the CIA secret. These included, he said, mosi of the presidents and interna- ional vice presidents, officer* who served for one year and some staff members. He said that before being told of the CIA connection, these /ouths were required to take an aath of secrecy and were warned that "violation of the iath could lead to jail penalties f up to 20 years'."

LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP) - A clear majority of the House committee investigating Adam Clayton Powell Jr. was reported Friday to favor seating him with a stiff censure motion, probably including a fine or withholding some of his pay. Although these thoughts have not wholly crystallized, most members of the select commit- ;ee are understood to believe :his is.the most severe action it s practical for the House to ;ake. A money penalty against Powell would be to cover government funds he allegedly con- 'erted to his own use. To expel him, they feel, would make him a martyr and proba- >ly would mean the House would have to deal with the matter again if, as expected, he Harlem Democrat won a pecial election for his vacated eat. Although the nine-member ommittee has taken no votes nd reached no firm agree- nents on recommendations to e submitted to the House next 'hursday, the general' outlines f a consensus have emerged. But the situation is described s still fluid and subject to hange when committee ses- ions resume Monday. What concerns the members ie most, reliable informants eport, is the need for unanimi- y and a strong argument to ersuade the House that the recommended action is both constitutional and the strongest practical penalty that can be imposed on Powell. At the moment, a small minority of the committee still is reported to be holding out for a recommendation to expel Powell, but members on both sides of the aisle hold out the hope a unanimous decision can be reached. Eight of the nine committee members are understood to feel the House could, if it wished, exclude Powell from his seat without even giving him the oath of office. But they are likely to reject this course for it could lead to a protracted court battle.

The car, tcr found abandoned north of e city, was stolen from Indi- napolls, would require a two-thirds majority, while one to exclude him would take only a simple majority. Members are pretty well agreed that stiff action is warranted against Powell on at least three counts: Evidence of defiance of New York courts in a long-standing and still-pending damage judgment case; audit reports indicating Powell and other staff members of the Education and Labor Committee often flew to Miami at government expense en route to his fishing retreat at Bimini in the Bahamas; and testimony by his estranged third wife that indicated Powell banked and spent without permission paychecks made out to her in a period Please Turn To Pag* 2, Colurnn 4 Theft Warrant ssued; Suspect Returned Here Leon Franklin Snow, 23, o Indianapolis, was extradited Torn Newport, Ky., earlier this week on a Madison County Circuit Court warrant issuec ifter investigation implicatec lira in a theft.

Republicans have said such a trip is necessary to give Riom- ney opportunity to state his position on national issues and to give him exposure necessary to secure delegate support at the 1968 GOP National Convention. "A lot of people expect me to deal with national issues as if I were in a national campaign," Romney told newsmen. "I'm not in a national campaign." Asked if he was unhappy with the situation, Romney commented, "There is nothing I can do except recognize it exists." Asked if he intended to make any policy statements on the Vietnam War, Romney said, "It might be interesting to wait and ie. "I have a very heavy schedule and will be asked a lot of questions on domestic and other matters," he said. "I expect to deal with them as I go along." Romney said the trip came ibout as a result of requests by Republican governors in Alaska and New Mexico and Republicans in Utah, Idaho and Arizona or help with Lincoln Day fund- aising affairs. "I simply combined them," Romney explained. Rjmney's trip has run into caustic criticism from Democrats in the slate legislature. Asked his reaction to this Romney commented: "I don't think the people of Michigan expect the governor to stay in Michigan all the time. "I don't think there is a more urgent problem for Michigan and other states than bringing about profitable federal-state relationships," Ttomney said, adding, "This trip is not unrelated."

Unsolved in the conference was the question of what percentage of the state sales tax and state gross income tax should be diverted for relief. Conferees originally started .kinking in terms of one-fourth of the revenue. Then they reduced it to one-eighth.
