Rogers claimed Rogers as- that this shows "tremendous progress" for President Nixon's strategy. Tliis was the most sweeping claim made about progress in the war since the. Nixon admin- \istration came to office pledging to avoid over-optimistic f;redictions. .It came on the 'threshold of anti-war moratorium demonstrations across the nation this week. · What these demonstrations ought to register,'said Rogers,'is "support" for the President, not "coercive" action against, him. Rogers in his.. first major television'interview as secretary of state (Meet the Press, NBC- TV), said .North Vietnamese infiltration into South Vietnam is way down . . . by two thirds this year." He said "their total troop strength (in South Vietnam) is down 25, 30, 35 thousand" in the last six or seven months and "the rate of combat activity is less than it has a great number ol been for months." With U.S. combat forces due to be reduced by "20 per cent" at the end of this year, and with U.S., South Vietnamese, and enemy casualties all down, said Rogers, "It is fair to say, I think . . . that this war is being de-escalated by President Nixon 'and that is tremendous progress." But Rogers acknowledged no recent progress and he saw no immediate prospect of any in What is country needs is a good 1-cent sale!

He said it is "quite un- ikely" that "there will be any irogress until it is clear that 'resident Nixon's, policy is sup- jorted by the American people. On other topics, .Rogers told iis questioners: --The United 'pleased" that States is Communist China agreed last week with the Soviet Union about heir bitter border disputes. We were very concerned" that hese serious tensions "might esult in armed conflict. "Eas- ng these tensions might give he United States "opportunity 0 develop closer relations with loth countries. --When Soviet Foreign Minster Andrei Gromykp recently said his country will "soon" respond on a time and place for he long-delayed. U.S.-Soviet strategic · · arms ' limitations .alks/ Rogers' understood Win ,o mean "in the next two. or hree months . . ." Rogers said 'I think his refusal to give us 1 time is related to the discussions -they were having · will he Chinese." --He has "no reason-to think' hat the United Arab Republic Iself has repudiated . the 'Rhodes Formula" for conducting negotiations to end the Arab-Israeli war through a U.N. ntermediary, which the Unitec Stales' -and Soviet Union "developed." A Cairo newspaper on. Sunday reported the UAR repudiation. In questioning on Vietnam jolicy, Rogers iold his interviewers that the President does nave a "a schedule" which 'may vary" with events tha ! ''contemplates the complete removal of the troops in Viet nam," but "lie -doesn't plan ;o announce it . . . to the enemy." Sen. Edward W. Brooke (R- Mass.) said in an interview with United Press Internationa! Sunday that President Nixon will announce more "subslan- ;ive cutbacks" in Vietnam troop strength before the end of this year, in response to increasing impatience with the war. Brooke, a member of thi Senate" Armed Services Com mittee, said "I am privy to some information" and "I'n not just' talking about 10,000 ti 25,000 troops." Brooke sale the troop " reductions woult 'generally continue right inli 1970." Rogers would say only lha the Nixon administration doe. not intend the present rate o troop withdrawal "to remain constant." It has been at the rate of 10,000 troops a month with 60,000 U.S. troops due ti leave South Vietnam by Dec. 15 All the importance tha Rogers attached Sunday to thi decrease in enemy infiltration into South Vietnam, the dro; in enemy combat strength, am the reduced level of fighting was in marked contrast to thi assessments given to thesi factors by U.S. military leaders When a newsman of- the pane f questioners noted that "there eemed to be- some confusion the administration earlier bout whether it meant anything t all" Roger grinned and said e never thought there was; "1 lought there was some contu- ion on the part of the press." The sharply differing inter- retations inside the administra- lon, nevertheless, have been nmistakably evident. In August, when the State Department characterized these ownward trends in enemy ac- ivity as "significant," the De- ense Department declined to mploy that terminology. U.S. military. leaders, in Vietnam InT refuse to do so; they main- ain that the reduced enemy activity is because the enemy las been hurt and the lowerec nfiltration rate is only "cycli cal," with a new offensive lore- cast this winter. As recently as. last Thursday defense Secretary Melvin R in assessing the situa duced "level- of violence am nfiltration," saying it.was stil eing looked at "very carefully' ,o assess its "impact," ant lurpose.

GIBSON PHARMACY -- 3635 W. 10th St. Haynsworth Jr. lo serve on the lupreme Court' bench. But the Bar Assn's Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary approved Haynsworth jy a split decision. Its earlier ·ecommendation in favor of the iouth Carolina appelate court judge last month had been unanimous. It.was only the second time since 1956, when the commitle in its present form started considering Supreme Courl nominees, that there had been less than unanimous report. The recommendation -- made after a six-hour meeting in Manhattan -- was in the form of a letter to Sen. James 0 Eastland (D-Miss.), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. It was two paragraphs but clearly the letter containec ammunition for both Haynsworth supporters and detrac tors. 'The committee met todaj and carefully reviewed the matters which have come to its attention since its original re ort on Judge Haynsworth to he United States Senate Com mittee on the Judiciary," the key paragraph stated. "It has concluded by a substantial ma ority that such matters do not varrant a change in that report." Former Federal Judge Law rence E. Walsh, an assistant attorney general during the Eisenhower administration anc now one of President Nixon's jersonal representatives to the Paris Peace talks, signed the etter. Walsh, the Bar Associ ation committee's chairman ndicaled not less than two thirds of the members of the 12-man committee had support foes charged the South Carolina judge should not have cast deciding vote in a case in of a textile corporation that was a customer of that company. But when the committee met Sunday, the charges ranged much further. came amidst a controversy Court ethics.

However, was learned that no formal vote was taken and one or two mem XTS were quite firm in their opposition. "All the matters were viewed in depth before the committee," Walsh said. When asked about debate, he replied: "Discussion has gone on from 11 until after five. You can make your own conclusion." When the committee first called Haynsworth "highly ac ceptable" in September, the only. allegation . of impropriety concerned, the Judge's one- think it is very significant. We are accepting it -and that is why we are de-escalating the war." Asked if he believes "the enemy also is de-escalating?" Rogers replied, "well; yes, certainly, because the combat activity is down and their troop strength has been decreased." \foucleanup as we clean out.
