Mitchell then called newsmen into his office and said the report's conclusions were based on raw- and in some instances inaccurate- data. He said its release was premature and had been submitted to the Cabinet panel as a working paper rather than a final report The attorney general said Leonard's figures of 97 per cent depended on a number of "imponderables," such as the outcome of pending suits and negotiations between the govern* ment and Southern school districts. Leonard said there are 72 segregated or dual school systems in 11 Southern states that are not under court order, voluntary planning to desegregate, or being sued by the department Dying Son's Mail Returned By Army VERMILION, Ohio (AP) For more than three months while their son lay dying of wounds in hospitals in Vietnam and Japan, Dominic and Mary Kotora wrote letters faithfully. This week, Kotora said he got the letters back- they had not been delivered. Kotora said the package of 114 u n o p e n e d letters-- including some from other family members-- was returned to him from the U.S. Army mail terminal in San Francisco. Kotora was told the Army was investigating to try to find out why the letters were not delivered. Spec. 4 John Kotora, 21, was wounded Jan. 28 when the helicopter he was aboard was hit by enemy fire. He d'xl May 3 of stomach wounds. WASHEVGTON (AP) - President Nixon has endorsed a Senate amendment Sen. Frank Church says would "largely emasculate" his proposal to restrict future U.S. operations in Cambodia. Nixon made the endorsement of the amendment by Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W. Va., in a letter to Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott "The Byrd amendment reaffirms the constitutional duty of the Commander-in-chief to take actions necessary to protect the lives of United States forces and is consistent with the responsibilities of my office, Nixon wrote Scott after a White House conference Thursday. "Therefore," the President said, "it goes a long way toward eliminating my more serious objections to the Cooper-Church amendment" Nixon referred to a proposal by Sens. Church and John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky., to cut off all funds for U.S. operations in Cambodia after June 30. Byrd's amendment looms as the key to the current Senate fight on U.S. involvement in Cambodia, which has entered its fourth week. Other sources indicated a vote may come next Thursday on the Byrd amendment which would in effect authorize the President to repeat the current U.S. attack into Cambodia if he finds it necessary to protect American troops in Vietnam. The President also wants the pending restrictions changed to authorize U.S. financial support for military operations by Thai or other Asian forces to bolster the beleaguered Cambodian government headed by Lon Nol. Nixon cited the doctrine he outlined last year at Guam "establishing a policy for Asian nations to defend themselves, with American material assistance and technical help . . . ." Scott said in a statement am extremely pleased with the letter and I have twice discussed its contents with the President." It was understood this referred to a telephone conversation after Nixon's speech Wednesday night and Thurs- day's meeting at the White ·louse. Neither change is believed acceptable to Church, D»Idaho, and Cooper, cosponsors of the pending proposal, which is itself an amendment to military sales authorization legislation. Debate on the measure entered its fourth week Thursday with Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield reiterating he will not lay it aside for other administration-backed legislation, including the House-passed bill to increase the federal debt ceiling by $18 billion. Congressional failure to pass this measure by the end of month could leave the govv - ment unable to pay its bills. Before Nixon's support for the i Byrd a m e n d m e n t became j known, Church said in an interview it will be "the most critical vote we face." "It looks very close," the Idaho Democrat said. Republican sources said sup. port for the Byrd amendment is "in the 40s," while Cooper- Church backers said their strength is "in the 50s." An earlier amendment to water down the Cooper-Church measure failed 54 to 36, but both ;ides expect the vote on Byrd's amendment to be closer. Asked about its effect Church 2«iu "It would largely emasculate the amendment leaving only those restrictions against sending American personnel" such as advisers and instructors for the Cambodian army. As it now stands, the Cooper- Church amendment bars funds for retaining U.S. forces in Cambodia after July 1 and puts limits on aid and use of airpow- er, including providing "persons to engage in any combat activity in support of Cambodian forces." By limiting the latter restriction to U.S. personnel, the administration would open the way for American financial backing of the Thai volunteers scheduled to be sent to Cambodia in a few weeks. The Byrd amendment adds language to the Cooper-Church proposal authorizing the President to take "such action as may be necessary to protect the lives of United States forces in South Vietnam or to facilitate the withdrawal of United States forces from South Vietnam." This is unacceptable to hardcore Cooper-Church backers. Mail Carrier Admits Failure To Deliver MAM (AP) - EJt.~ailine» Edward Foy pleaded guilty to violating postal laws by dumping 435 pieces of third class mail - advertisements and sales pitches addressed to "occupant"- in a trash can. The 49-year-old Fort Lauderdale man told postal inspector* he just got tired of delivering the mail to "no one in particular." U.S. Dist. Judge C. Clyde Atkins placed Foy, who resigned from the postal service, on two years' probation.
