However/ Paul Rogers, attorney for the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, charged the amend- a n h o u r-long meeting at the White House Thursday with Finch alumnus ment "seriously weakens" the!

The university heads went on to assure the academic community nationwide that in their discussion with Nixon: "We were heard and we made clear the truth as we believe it to be."

The spokesman added that 35,000 protesters are expected to demonstrate against the war and the four student deaths at Kent State University last Monday.

President Nixon is reported to have said Thursday that destruction of North Vietnamese bases in Cambodia would gain 8 to 12 months of time before enemy troops would be able to rebuild the bases for use against South Vietnam. Nixon spent about an hour with members of the Citizens .Committee for Peace with Freedom in Vietnam, including some who recently made a fact-finding tour of Indochina. The seven-man fact-finding team completed its three-week trip April 20 and submitted its report on April 29. The committee recommended that Nixon "take firm, immediate steps to secure the safety of American troops in Vietnam which, with mounting concern, we see as seriously imperiled by current developments in Cambodia." strate against the widening of the war in Indochina. The two girls sat down with Tricia in the White House library and told about it afterward. Miss Holmes said: "She (Tricia) suggested we write to congressmen and senators and tell them how we felt. We told her we've been doing that for five years." And' one senator wrote back "thank you for 'your attitude" after bcing written a scathing letter, Tricia further suggested, ac- coring to Miss Holmes, that there was "a personality gap" rather than a generation gap and suggested that "any student in the United States who has any idea of how to bridge the gap between students and the administration should write those ideas to the White House." ' "After we told her what the strike was about and that millions of American students don't trust their government," Miss Holmes said, "she seemed shocked." Miss Holmes said they asked Tricia, '-'Why did he (the President) call us bums?" Tricia said it was "taken out of context, that he was just talking about" students wHo burned books," Miss Holmes related.
