To live on $39 to $52 per month per person. 2. To deprive their children of adequate food, clothing and shelter. 3. To deny their children of the dignity and security that comes from having two parents in the home. 4. To let their children fend for themselves without adequate babysitting or Day Care serv- ' ices being provided. 5. To discourage their children from having friends in the home because it is poorly furnished. . 6. You, by the budget action, demand and require that welfare recipients live without hope or pride. For the little saving of 1 i cents a week, can you really do this in good conscience? You have succeeded in cutting children and families off of the welfare rolls! But are you prepared then to assure them all of: 1 . Decent Housing in a reasonable price range. 2. Jobs that payali vmg wage. 3. Education and training for those pushed out of the school system. 4. Day Care services for all children at reasonable prit.es. On behalf of the low income families of Wisconsin, we urge you to think of their welfare. fam Ceeftty KeW Start Cerent neviurf (wnirf (eoMmnrtv Attien (enmittien leer i Cltwch Women United Welfare lijkl Oraeniialiens Antef kee AiteiietiM ( University Wsmen lC frteanh at Seeti Medoon NeinhteilMee1 Center AutknritrA anil jinirl jitr h prirntr rnnlrihuHnm.

By EDWIN Q. WHITE LONG BINH, Vietnam UD - T-ie United States Army an nounced Sunday that Col. James Campbell, an Army spokesman who criticized the military newspaper Pacific Stars and Stripes as a "Hanoi Herald," has been reassigned. The Army indicated that a speech which Campbell wrote for a Pacific information offi cers' conference was the reason for his transfer. The Army said the opinions in the speech "do not reflect the opinion of this headquarters." CAMPBELL, WHO had been chief U.S. Army information officer in Vietnam since Feb. 14, was scheduled to take over as editor of Pacific Stars and Stripes in January. There was no immediate disclosure of his new assignment, other than it would be within U.S. Army headquarters, Vietnam (USARV), here in Long Binh, 15 miles northeast of Saigon. Lt. Col. Ross Johnson, deputy chief of information at Army headquarters, declined to say whether plans for Campbell to take charge of Pacific Stars and Stripes might be changed. In a statement Sunday, the Army said: "Col. Campbell has been reassigned within USARV headquarters. The opinions attributed to Col. Campbell-in the Associated Press article reference to the publication of treasonous arti- I cles and the general lack of sup- Jr "foV.

JOHNSON, WHO said he would serve as Campbell's replacement until the chief information job is filled by a 'full colonel, the rank prescribed for it, said the speech criticizing the newspaper originated with Campbell and had not been sanctioned by a higher level of , command. Campbell greeted newsmen c h e e r i 1 y at his house-trailer quarters at Long Binh but said he could not comment on his reassignment. Johnson delivered the speech written by Campbell to a closed session of the U.S; Pacific Com mand information officers conference in Taipei on Sept. 3. Campbell did not attend - the conference. Last Thursday, however, Campbell told the Associated Press: "I stand by all I said in the speech. It remains the view of USARV." IN THE SPEECH, Campbell had said: "I think this conference will be interested in learning that the Pacific Stars and Stripes has earned for itself the title of 'The Hanoi Herald.' Perhaps this may seem a bit harsh, but we of U.S. Army Vietnam feel that there is more than just a bit of justification for it." Campbell, in the speech, described as "treason" one battle report by a Stars and Stripes re porter. He pinned a similar label on an Associated Press story about an Army unit that refused for a time to move into action. Criticizing the Pacific Stars and Stripes account of one bat tle action and the use of num bers of casualties in U.S. infantry company, Campbell said: ' "Whether these figures are true is completely beside the point. It is my contention that such irresponsible reporting is absolutely devastating to the morale ... of all soldiers. It is also my contention that such reporting in the Stars and Stripes, of all publications is of tremendous aid and comfort to the enemy." "NOBODY IN USARV is trying to muzzle the press. But USARV does insist that the Stars and Stripes accept the responsibilities of reporting. "Nobody expects Stars and Stripes to be a smile sheet and report only tapioca news. But the Army does expect and is not getting a fair shake from the Stars and Stripes." Earlier Sunday in Tokyor where Pacific Stars and Stripes is published, Lt. Col. Jesse N. Townshend, editor-in-chief, said he considered the criticism unjustified. ' "I consider it as a complaint of an individual, and he's got a right to his opinion," Townshend said. "He undoubtedly was emotional about it. "Stripes reporters follow instructions laid down by higher headquarters which state that they are to report in a fair, impartial, objective, accurate, and balanced manner." ..
