GOP House Leader Griffin Raps Anti-Cambodia Supporters By CARL P. LEUBSDORF Attocitttd Pr«i Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Asst. Republican Leader Robert P. Griffin charged today that Senale supporters of curbs on U.S. activities in Cambodia are giving "aid and comfort to the ene- Cahill said he asked if American troops would be built up again should the takeover program fail. He quoted Rogers as saying: "No. A time comes when a boy learning to ride a bicycle must ride alone. In South Realism Holts Shakespeare Play SALVADOR, Brazil (AP) Performances of Shakespeare's Macbeth were suspended after a goat was killed on stage in the witches' scene, to the dismay ol the audience. Authorities reported a nervous young actress played the sacrificial elemerl too realistically while patrons covered their eyes and ears. SEOUL ~~Korea~has $159 Vietnam, that time is next million in foreign loans. Griffin, Michigan Republican, made the assertion after Republican Leader Hugh Scott praised his Democratic counterpart, Mike Mansfield, for stressing that sponsors of the Cooper- Church curbing amendment are trying to work "in concert" with the President by backing up his determination to get U.S. forces out of Cambodia by July 1. Seeki Consensus "I am hopeful we can work out a consensus rather than a confrontation," said Scott who has been working to resolve the issue. He indicated that any restrictions effective after July 1 might be helpful in reaching an accommodation. But Griffin charged that the pending amendment "cuts off options and ties the hands of the commander in chief in areas where he has responsibilities and does make what are essentially battlefield decisions. "I know it is not the intention of the sponsors to aid the enemy," he added. "Of course it is not. But it does aid the enemy. "Tins is very dangerous ground," the Michigan Republican continued. "It gives aid and comfort to the enemy. We shouldn't do it." Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, said he hopes for "an accommodation," adding "there is nothing here to compromise." He is cosponsor of the proposed amendment wilh Sen. John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky. White How* to Stind In spite of Mansfield's statement, there has been no indication the While House intends to back off from its stand that, as commander in chief, the President has the unrestricted right to use American troops as he did in sending U.S. ground forces into Cambodia. Administration supporters, npparently outnumbered if the issue came down to the showdown stage, have sufficient numbers to keep the debate going for a long time--possibly right up to the June 30 date set by President Nixon for withdrawal of the U.S. force currently in Cambodia. "There are a lot of us who want to discuss this pretty thoroughly," Sen. Gordon Allotl of Colorado told reporters Tuesday, but added "I'm not talking In terms of a filibuster. "We'll just debate as long as we have to to help educate the public." he said. Earlier in the day, Mansfield pointed out that if opponents of; the fund-cutoff proposal, sponsored by Sens. John Sherman Cooper and Frank Church, delay a vote "it will hold up legislation in which the administration is interested, appropriations and the like." Republican Leader Hugh Scott was reported by aides to be engaged in "very delicate" negotiations in efforts to find a compromise that would water down the Cooper-Church proposal, which would bar funds for "retaining" U.S. forces in Cambodia. 47 In Favor The Associated Press lists 47 senators in favor of Cooper- Church, five others leaning in favor, and 34 opposed with the rest undecided. A basic problem in devising a compromise is that all of the possibilities suggested so far pive authority to the President to order U.S. troops into Cambodia or Laos, or Thailand, or all of them, if needed to protect U S forces in South Vietnam. Since this was the stated purpose of the current operation in Cambodia, those opposed to it are unwilling to go along with any such authorization. Although administration supporters have insisted the amendment would restrict the President's powers, senators backing the proposal say that, while it requires congressional approval of further ventures into Cambodia, it does not interfere with any constitutional powers of the president. In another development, New Jersey Gov. William T. Cahill said he was told by Secretary of State William P. Rogers that additional U.S. troops won't be sent to South Vietnam, even if Vietnamization fails. Vietnamization-the takeover of the war by South Vietnamese soldiers-is expected to gam valuable time as a result of the current operation in Cambodia.
