Target date for operation of the first trains under corporation control would be Mar. 1, 1971. Any railroad not entering into a contract with the corporation would not be able to discontinue any passenger train until Jan. 1975. The corporation also would be barred from dropping any of its service before that same date. Commuter lines would not be directly eligible for takeover, 3ut would share benefits if they were part of an intercity line that was.

Rockefeller said Wednesday he respectsthe rights of students to dissent, but indicated tacit approval of President Nixon's Cambodian policy which sparked the latest student protests across the nation. Noting he had sought the Republican presidential nomination unsuccessfully in 1968.on a peace platform, Rockefeller nation raises the gravest constitutional 'and international legal questions. In addition, it was done without prior congressional consultation, which we had received every assurance would be forthcoming." Culver said the U.S. move into Cambodia heightens international tensions, reduces the prospect for peace negotiations, makes Russia and China more determined in Indochina, and threatens the success of the U.S.-Soviet strategic arms limitation talks. Perhaps most important, said Culver, the President's action "has to be carefully weighed in its .consequences to the stability and tranquility of our own nation at this most difficult time in our history." The continued war poses an "increasingly apparent threat to our survival as a free and prosperous nation," he said. Republican Gross said Wednesday that the President assured the congressmen "he's taken this action to protect, the lives of our servicemen and the South Vietnamese. I've got to take his word for it. I do think, however, that he's being optimistic. I hope with all my being that he's right that this war can be a closed our in eight or nine months." Gross said, however, that he has always believed "the real sanctuary is North Vietnam, not .Cambodia. That is the sanctuary that ought to have been eliminated in 1965. SENDS LETTERS ON PROPOSAL CONGRESS- Continued from.Page One against enemy strongholds in Cambodia. Both the Reid and Findley amendments were to a $20.2- billion military weapons authorization bill for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Speaks to Committees Mr. Nixon-told four congressional committees Tuesday he plans to have all U.S. troops out of Cambodia by then. Reid said his amendment would have prohibited the President from reintroducing troops into Cambodia after that. Calling the Findley amendment "another Tonkin Gulf Resolution," Reid argued it would give the President congressional authority to launch U.S. strikes throughout Cambodia, and into Laos in the name of protecting U.S. _troops hi South Vietnam. -The Tonkin Gulf Resolution approved by Congress in 1964 gave President Johnson specific authority to "take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against U.S. forces and to prevent further aggression" in Vietnam. Findley said in a letter to all House members hTs^rnen~dmehT would Have granted Mr, Nixon "no power" whatever" but only recognizes his authority as commander-in-chief, over which Congress has no control,,to take action he deems necessary to protect lives. / .
