Senate Panel Approves Fund Cut tor Cambodian Actions By LAWRiNCI L. KNUTSON Afwcitttd Press Writer .1 .- . WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved overwhelmingly-Monday legislation barring funds; for all future U.S. military action in Cambodia--on the ground, the sea and in the air. The panel also acted to limit the 'Defense Department's freedom of 'action under a military sales bill and voted to plug what one senator called "a loophole big enough to drive the whole Pentagon; through." The actions came as Senate Senate in about a month. Democratic leaders scheduled a month ofidebate on a series of foreign-policy measures, most of them centered on the President's constitutional power deploy U.S. combat forces overseas. The Cambodia amendment was sponsored by Sens. Frank Church. D-Idaho and John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky. It would forbid specifically the use of funds to retain U.S. forces in Cambodia, the supporting in any way the presence of U.S. advisers in Cambodia, and (lie conducting any air combat activity in support of Cambodian forces.

"This is where the action is,' he declared. "This is where we have a chance to stop the war.' Sen. Edmund S.

CORNELL Aitoctetod Prtw Writtr WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon briefed the nation's governors Monday on the Cambodian military venture and opened up the possibility he may .put on a telethon beamed at campus unrest. Prior to the final breakup of the closed meeting, newsmen heard a report that it generated a bit of heat between Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and Democratic Gov. Frank Licht of Rhode Island over the issue of student disorders. However, Licht told newsmen later that he had no clash with anyone at the session. He said he relayed to Nixon the views of some Rhode Island college presidents and students and "I indicated to him that we ought to have some means of communication with the students." Licht said Agnew did not re-1 spend to his statement. And in the end Nixon got a standing ovation for his efforts to bring the governors up to date on both the military and domestic problems even if his listeners were not unanimously for his policies. For something hours the President, Agnew and key administration officials from the Cabinet and White House met with executives of 43 states and three territories in the State Dining Room, of Uie White House. Nixon said at would discuss the economy as well as Vietnam and Cambodia, but Gov. Kenneth M. Curtis, D- Maine, said he never got around to the economy. Concentration The concentration Cambodia and student' opposition and disorders which, in part at least, spring from the presidential policies and actions m Indochina. Secretary of State William P. Rogers talked to the governors about the diplomatic situation and Gen. John Vogt, executive secretary of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, covered the military operations in Cambodia. A lengthy question and answer session followed. Gov. John A. Love, R-Colo., chairman of the National Conference of Governors, told reporters afterward it was a very useful meeting, hopeful for "the President as well as for the governors. It was Gov. John M. Dempsey, D-Conn., chairman of the Organization of Democratic Governors, who mentioned to newsmen that a telethon was discussed as a means of establ- so he could communicate with students. And Gov; Love, in response to a question about Nixon's response to the telethon idea said: "He indicated he'd be willing to. do anything he can do to increase communications." M«d* Clear Love said, too, that Nixon had made it absolutely clear he was not seeking a governors' resolution of support for his Indochina policy. In the past, some governors' conferences have gone on record favoring the policies of earlier administrations. Dempsey called the meeting with the President and the administration team "most constructive and informative." And he said one important thing was that "the President gave us an opportunity to be heard. He listened to us ... and we in Connecticut are very pleased that in the days ahead some communication will be .established between students, their faculties and the President himself." Dempsey said he thinks it was Gov. Francis W. Sargent, R- Mass., who suggested a telethon. Gov. Raymond P. Shafer of Pennsylvania, chairman of the Republican Governors' Association, said Nixon made it clear at the outset he was not asking the governors to either agree or disagree with him. "I think every governor there," he said, "felt that the President is pursuing peace for the world." Both Shafer and Dempsey joined Love in telling newsmen there was no heated exchange between Agnew and Licht. It was Gov. David F. Cargo, New Mexico Republican, who I left the White House session was on I early and said on the way out more helpful than anything they could do. "The vice president," he said, like three the outset he that Agnew had expressed himself forcefully and that Licht at one point "laid it on strongly" in criticism of the vice presi- Steel Prices PITTSBURGH (AP) - U.S. Steel Corp. announced Monday t is raising prices by at least (6 a ton on all steel sheet products.

Thirteen were promoted to ful professor, 25 to associate professor, and 11 to assistant profes dent. Covered in Depth Shafer said the problem of communications with students was covered in great depth and he possibility of establishing xjrmanent channels was discussed as a means of disolving conflict. Love said lhat if he understood the sense of the discussions, it was agreed that the MS'IC responsibility for creating communication channels was at the stale level -- on Ihe gover- ors.

(AP) More than 500 students, faculty members and administrators at St. John's College sent a letter Monday to President Nixon saying, "We cannot subscribe to ir- raticna! and violent methods of dissent since they imply an abandonment of the fundamental principles for which a college or university should stand." "We doubt whether confrontations can advance the cause of reason. Nor will the welfare of the country be advanced by a national strike of students or the closing of our colleges and universities." The letter expressed "deep concern over the most recent expansion of the undeclared war in Soulheast Asia. "Many of us recognize that we do not have the necessary background or facts to assess the wisdom or necessity for the original American involvement in Indochina or for the subsequent escalation of the fighting. We are not experts on power politics, communist subversion, political vacuums or military strategy. "However, we share a repugnance for the conflict which has devastated this area of the world for nearly Iwo decades. We earnestly want to believe you when you publicly commit yourself and our government to withdrawal of our armed forces as rapidly as is consistent with safety and prudence." The letter said students and faculty at St. John's hoped that "our actions may commend themselves to students and faculties in other colleges and universities and may prove to have a sobering effect in a period of campus turmoil and national cli- ision." The college has 350 students at its Annapolis campus and 291 at its campus in Santa Fe, N.M A spokesman said signatures were obtained at both campuses last Thursday and Friday by posting a copy of the letter in the coffee shops. The letter originally ·· was drafted by Dr. Richard 'D. Weigle, president of the 275-year-old college, and later modified by delegate councils that met las' week. The councils are composed of student leaders and one student representative from each dormitory. The liberal arts college is per haps best known [or its curriculum based on the great books of Western civilization, which requires an identicial four-year program from every student. Four-year courses in both Greek and Latin also are mandatory. jpeakers are scheduled: 'Larry Scott, chairman of Citizens, fpr School District Six Bond .giecV ion; H.
