! Must Remove Ourselves From Vietnam: Monfort By RON STEWART ! Tribune Staff Writer · A near full house at Ihe College Center ballroom on the Colorado Stale College campus Wednesday heard Kenneth Mon\ fort, Greeley cattle feeder and meat packer, say "we must remove ourselves from Vietnam now." MonFort, in a speech that, was not announced until Wednesday, was the main attraction at Moratorium Day activities at the college. Earlier Monfort spoke at Ihe Colorado School of Mines. Monfort presented his position on Vietnam and his remarks were enthusiastically received by the crowd of students, faculty members and a few of what he. called the "over 30" crowd. Face Home Problems A standing ovation was given the former State representative who was defeated as -candidate for U.S.!Senate last fall. Monfort told the crowd that the United States should remove itself from Vietnam in order to "face our problems at home and preserve riot only our nation and people, but also lo preserve tlie Vietnamese themselves." · 'This 'war has killed some 38,000 Americans and it has cost over $100 billion," Monfort said. "It has corrupted the Vietnamese and destroyed their land. It lias led to such great division within cur nation that only (he inherent Tightness of our American dream has allowed us lo remain intact. Con tinuation of this war and no the loss of face involved ir withdrawal poses the very rea threat lo--this nation." Monfort prefaced his remarks by saying that he guessed he was "square." "I'm definitely a country boy ·nd I slill believe that America is the noblest attempt by man to govern himself, he said "And ' I fervently believe tha; it is the American destiny to show this world how to live in freedom, in peace and with equality to all." Monfort told the crowd that those urging withdrawal now have no monopoly on dissent. Not Political "The fact that this moratorium exists has created dissent, 1 Monfort said. "President'Nixon has said it will not affect him. Several Congressmen have called we who participate traitors. And our Vice-President's statements have once again given us reason to pray for the well- being of our President." Monfort said that the issue was not a political one now. A year ago, he said, the question on withdrawal was why. Now, he said, the question is only how and when. Monfort used a quote from Mark Twain saying, "An inglorious peace is better than a dishonorable war." "I consider this a dishonorable war," Monfort said, " a war that we proclaim as aiding self-determination in a nation where we admit that a hasty withdrawal will bring an overthrow of the government, although government troops outnumber the enemy two to one. I consider this a dishonorable war because those that we keep in power allow corruption to (Continued on page 6) The Weather 1:30 p.m. temperature: 34 (CSC report as of 6 a.m.) High Wednesday _ 43 Low ...: 17* Barometer^ 30.16 rising Precipitation ·.. none Total for year 15.93 Normal through Oct. 11.65 The highest temperature ever recorded here on Oct. 16 was 82 degrees in 1943.

Swoboda's game-winner came in.the eighth-inning scoring Cleon Jones, who also had doubled. The laughing stock of baseball For the' first seven years of their existence when they failed to climb above ninth place, the irrepressible Mets went from rags lo riches in their eighth season by winning four straight ;ames from the once-favored Orioles after losing '(he first sic. The mets, who overcame a !£ game Chicago Cubs lead lo vin the Eastern Division and hen swept Atlanta three straight playoff games for the National League pennant, came out the befuddled Orioles. After pitcher Dave-McNally's two-run homer and a solo blast by Frank Robinson in the thir inning had put' the_ Mets in hole, - Donn Clendenon began ill final comeback with a two-ru: homer in the sixth. Then, light-hitting Al Weis, .215 hitter during the seaso with only six homers during seven-year major league . c reer, homered in the seventh fo a tie.

By FRANK COLOHAN Tribune Staff Writer The city was ordered Thursday not to place a controversial zoning proposal on the ballot for the Nov. 4 election, and Cily Attorney William A. Boh- Icndcr recommended a short time later the matter not be appealed lo Ihe State Supreme Court. The prohibition concerning. placing the proposal on the bal- j lot was contained in temporary j and permanent injunctions; granted by Judge Earl Wol, vinglon of Sterling in District "The discoveries for which Court here Thursday morning, the award was given first of all Allegations Sustained imply a deeper insight into the . .. ., nature of viruses and virus dis- , '" 8TM""!"!, lhcr injunctions cases.

The court issued the permanent injunction so that, if llui city desired, it could make an immediate appeal of the decision to the State Supreme Court. Advises Against Appeal However, Bohlender a short time after the decision was announced, sent a letter to Mayor Dorothy Zabka and Cily Council advising against an appeal. The letter said: "It is my opinion that the case concerning placement of the zoning issue on the ballot does nol merit an appeal fo a about an increased understanding of the mechanism of inheritance and of those mechanisms · t h a i control the development, certified staff members will| growU , and function of tissues have lo achieve a higher degree I fmc | org ans," the awarding body after the eighth step in order 'said.
