' The Pentagon was also ' shocked over the 'use of satel- lite troops in the invasion. It ' had been assumed that, the ""Russians considered satellite soldiers too unreliable to use for anything except logistical support. Yet Poles, Hungarians, Bulgarians and East Germans participated in an invasion of a sister satellite with no apparent hesitation. The hoIe Soviet operation has caused some agonizing reappraisals inside the Pentagon. ''. CAMPAIGN STANDARDS . THIS COLUMN has found much to criticize in the conduct of Congress; It is only fair, therefore, to report " changes for the.,better." In the past, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has accepted 'campaign cash under the table from special interests seeking to , Influence legislation. . ' Bagmen for the oil companies, for instance, would slip money to the committee with instructions that it be passed out to Senators who had agreed to vote for the oil depletion allowance. The ' records of contributions were deliberately vague. ; These practices were abruptly abandoned after Maine's ruggedly righteous Sen. Ed Muskie took over the chair manship. He talked it over with Democratic .Senators up for re-election, who agreed to take the high road in their campaigns. " He asked Washington attorney Berl Bernhard, who has a strong sense of ethics, to . help keep the Democratic in-, cumbents on the right side of the law. Then Muskie laid down stern ethical standards. He insisted that every contribution must be identified and that every transaction must be made by check. He made certain even that the Interest on. the $650,000 which, the committee had in was properly recorded. .He asked .Bernhard whether the Interest was taxable. Back came a memo from the attorney assuring him: "Since it is the intention of the committee to Use all of its funds for political campaigns and related purposes, rendering the contribution non-taxable, income in the form of interest from these gifts, if - applied for campaign purposes, considered non-taxable.' MUSKIE'S ETHICS MUSKIE ALSO sought advice on how to handle contributors who insisted that their money . be earmarked for .their favorite Senators. ' "Each contributor," suggested Bernhard, "shoold be asked to accept the concept this his contribution is re-' ceived with the understanding that the committee recognizes the donor's preference, but is under, no obligation to disburse the funds as requested." ' This became the rule, and it was soon put to the test. The AFL-CIO submitted, along with a generous contribution, a list of eight Senators who should -get the money. Muskie amiably refused to give anv guarantee. Another time, the Senators seeking re-election decided to spend a quiet weekend on Maryland's ''Eastern Shore ; mapping strategy. Someone i offered to get a corporation to fly them to the shore in a i private plane. Muskie flatly rejected the idea, and they all paid thrlr own expenses. He also decreed that con trary to past practice, each incumbent will get an equal - share of the campaign kitty. It was Muskie's quiet rcpu---lation for Integrity, as much as anything, else, that made him Vice President Humphrey's choice for a running mate.

THIS WAS the Soviet military occupation of Czechoslo-' vakia which added more than a dozen Communist army divisions to the lineup against the Western NATO nations and, according to some mili-tary analysts, changed the balance of power in Europe.

Weighing 200 and plenty, she would have much preferred to cut them down, however, when ' the State Athletic Commission refused to grant her a wrestling license. Insisting that the refusal was due to discrimination and the mid-Victorian con-, ccpt of womanhood possessed by the men on the board, Teena swayed hec delicate frame into court and demanded that the license be issued to her. "Under the law," she told the judge, "men can no longer treat women like dainty pieces of porclain that belong home on the shelf. Now, what's good for the goose is tood for the gander. The Iqual Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment says that men and women must be treated the same! If men can get a license to wrestle, so can women." ' . "You can't treat them the same," was the answer of the Athletic Commission, "because obviouslv, thev are not the same. If they were, then , we'd really have a problem." IF YOU WERE THE JUDGE, would you direct that Teena be given a license to wrestle? This is how the judge ruled: NO! He held that the 14th Amendment dbes not require that all persons be treated alike; that a state may classify its citizens provided that the classification ts not arbitrary and that ail persons in the class are treated the same. The Constitution does not demand that things which are different in fact be treated as though they were the same, concluded the ludee. Thus, despite the possible mid-Victorian attitude of the Athletic Commission, there docs exist a reasonable difference between men and women lo justify the Commission's refusal to eive Teena a license1 to wrestle.

I assume "likewise" to be a colloquialism. If it is, does it relate to a particular section of the United States 6r to a certain social andor educational level? , Don Vasquez, . Mexico D.F., Mexico. A Sorry' but "likewise" is not only not a "colloquialism," it has been well established according toithe Ox-, ford Dictionary at least since 1449. It was originally a contraction of "in like wise," meaning "in the same way" which is still its basic meaning. I think what may have led to your misunderstanding is the use of the phrase "Likewise, I'm sure" by radio and TV comedians in answer to such .salutations as "Glad to meet you." In such use, the line is always delivered with a nasally Bronxish accent, so that it certainly sounds slangy, -even though it actually is not. DEAR MORRISES: As an "old fashioned" English teacher I've taught that pronouns containing "each" "every." "one," and 'body" were singular. The trend, even among the educated, is to use "evervone" with a singular verb out a plural pronoun referring o "everyone.". Example: "Everyone who IS done may leave if THEY wish." I contend that this usage is wrong. Some of my colleagues claim that the meaning intended is plural, therefore "they" is permissible. Who's right? PafWacha, Clarkson, Neb. A According lo Porter Pcrrin ("Writer's Guide and , Index to English'-')., "in the early development of the language, 'every, 'everybody' 'everyone.' were treated as singulars and are often so . used today. (However) very often these words are treated as collectives. "A very immediately following 'everyone' or 'everybody',' is usually singular, but a pronoun referring back to it from , a little distance is likely to be plural: 'Everybody is taking . off their hats.' To make such expressions conform to Formal American written usage, it is often better to change 'every- ' one' to a more accurate nlural or collective than to chance the later pronoun,: 'They ' all are taking off their hats' or 'the crowd are taking off their hats.'"

Presumably, they could be eliminated without too much loss. Rota, however, is the key base to supply, refit and service U.S. Polaris submarines in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. ' More than a year ago Spain indicated she was 'raising the price tag. While never-officially announced, these are said to be Spain's chief demands: An increase from $50 million to $1 billion in military aid over the next five years. She wants to modernize her army, navy and airforce, including F4 Phantom jets, a second Hawk antiaircraft missile battalion and radar picket ships. U.S. SUPPORT in the increasingly bitter dispute between Britain and Spain over Gibraltar. Early this year, Spain warned the United States the U.S. Sixth Fleet would lose its hospitality privileges at Spanish Mediterranean ports if it continued to use Gibraltar as a port of call. The Ralph McGill Column (Cont. from preceding page) It is interesting, in this connection, to recall that when Senator Eugene McCarthy spoke to "the kids" across from the Hilton Hotel on the -day following Mr. Humphrey's nomination, he, too, urged them to go back home and work within the processes of party politics. The hard core shouted, "No, No!" Now, the man whose name many of these and other young voters were chanting at the convention has himself declared for his party's nominees. He declares them "best equipped" and asks support for them. There will be no fourth party nominee, . For the more rebellious young Americans, there is, anil was, no commitment. They were not "for" McCarthy or Kennedy. Their commitment has been described as to "a vague, often unar-ticuloted 'thing' ' they have created." THE STUDENTS for a Democratic Society and other radical groups making up the coalition of protest against the Vietnam policy wish to destroy the system, not reform it by due process. They say so with commendable honesty. For the others there is the choice of Humphrey-Muskie, Nixon-Agnew, or George Wallace. It is tme'of the incomprehensible mysteries why Hubert Humphrey's consistent record of achievement, his knowledge and performance is not well known. Here is a man who would willingly giye his life for peace. Here is a man who probably knows more about . government than any man in government. Here is a man whose whole life is a record of decency and achievement in the field of human rights. Were it not for this, Ted Kennedy would not have made his decision. by Brickman RI6HT7 - . 9-11 BUCKLEY- On The Right (Cont. from preceding page) . of Catholic spokesmen to do the best they can to acknowledge that consequences , of Catholic teachings are visited i not only on Catholics but also-on others, and that although the community of the generous will concede tnat that is some-' times good, some. .will argue that that is sometimes bad: as in the present instance. Over- Eopulation, for instance in atin America, will not Become an exclusively Catholic problem. A prominent Jewish theologian, Dr. Will Herberg, writes about the population explosion that, after all, there are at .. least three known ways of coping with it. One is contraception. A second is abortion.' A third, and far and away the most efficient is infanticide. 'It is sure, painless, and it enables the parents or society to select which children,. boys or girls, are to be preserved. Moreover, infanticide was practised, for nprhans a thou sand years, by the most civilized people of antiquity, the Greeks." So why pot.? . "Because and only because it. runs counter to our moral convictions. In other words," says Dr. Herberg, "approval or disapproval of any particu-. lar method of population control, including contraception, is- basically a moral, not primarily a medical or a demo-graphical question."' Accept that structural insight, and the argument can go forward. Refuse to accept it, and you will sound punchy. THE CATHOLIC Church is in great ferment, as everybody knows. As not everybody knows, the efforts of the re-newalists are in -many cases driving Catholics away from the church. "Catholic renewal-" ists," observes Protestant theologian Martin Marty, "engage in overkill when their attempt to reform the church leads to their removal from it."' The crisis of authority is the derivative crisis. It is more important by far, ultimately, than the popualtion explosion: because if moral authority and moral considerations, indeed if , all of religion, is extirpated from the face of the earth, there will then be, and for the first time, good reason' for wishing that there should be an end not merely to the population explosion, but to population. TULLY Whirligig (Cont. from preceding page) since the dawn of the nuclear age. But his emphasis oh American interest gets to the gut of the issue. This is that the brutalizing of Czechoslovakia is irrelevant. The treaty is not a payoff to the Russians. It does not, as some foolish politi-' . cians have suggested, require either nation to disarm. It is. not a bilateral agreement but one among scores of nations, many of which already have-ratified it. - The yes-b.ut-ers are chanting that the U. S. should employ hesitation in ratifying the pact to apply diplomatic leverage on the Soviet Union. This is sheer tomfoolery. Sure, the Russians want the treaty. That's why they signed the ruddy thing. But they know that we also want "it, and so does most of the rest of the world, notably excepting the paranoid rulers of Communist China and Gaul-list France.-The pragmatists in the Kremlin are not about , to be moved, except possibly ' to mirth, bv this campaign on CaDitol Hill to force Uncle Sam to bite off his nose to spite his face. Admittedly, Russia's primary interest in the treaty .is lo bar, a Germany armed with -nuclear weapons. After Czechoslovakia, the West Germans have made It plain thev'll take their time about signing up. This is, presumably, their privilege, although the exercise of it hardly makes them popular in Washington. But there is no reason why the United -States. should join the West Germans in thus at--temntinc lo .sabotage the. pact. Aside from the hard fact that it is our particular babv., there is the question of whether we want to give aid and comfort to the -German mi'Marists. " ' The trouble with Americans, and csncciallv those on the Left, is that we have not learned to anply a practical . .rye to the Russians. Whenever' there Is the slightest thaw in Moscow, we tend to . see It as the budding, if not the ripening,, of romance. We have not matured to the point whore we expect the zigs and zags of Soviet foreign oollcy as a fact of life, and yet remain determined .to do what business we can with the Russians,' without illusion. A treaty which would restrict the spread of nuclear, weapons is just as desirable today, after Czechoslovakia, as It was yesterday. It will be just as desirable tomorrow, even if the Russians move.
