Mayors urge President to cut defense, space spending Phoenix, Thnrs., June 18,1970 ALL EDITIONS The Arizona Republic 23 United Press International DENVER—The nation's mayors yesterday urged President Nixon to cut defense and space spending and use the money to cure the nation's urban crisis. The mayors passed a resolution, similar to one a year ago, urging the President and Congress to reorganize national priorities to "insure the domestic tranquility of this country and mount domestic programs on a scale equal to the dimensions of the problems." The measure was amended by Milwaukee Mayor Henry W. Maier to list specific areas in which the recommended cuts should be made. A similar resolution pissed last year by the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Pittsburgh called for the reallocate but did not mention specific areas. Maier's amendment,was a compromise and headed off an expected floor battle led by Cleveland Mayor Carl B. Stokes who wanted to specifically mention defense spending on the war in Southeast Asia. Other factions, originally headed by Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, wanted no mention of military spending in the resolution. TOTEIVf IT O X E IVl The amendment passed on a 71-46 vote afte* t hafthoto debate, and the conference then passed the "hftti&ritt JfttSrV ties" resolution on a show-of-hands vote, Although Stokes said the amended raohitf&n "did not go far enough," he thought Maier had attempted to satisfy several different views and favored passage of it. Opposition to Maier's amendment came from Birmingham, Ala., Mayor George G. Seibels Jr. who said the mayors did not have enough knowledge to recommend gtteh specific spending cuts. "I feel the people who are in charge of space, military and agricultural programs probably krtow what they are doing," he said. Several other southern mayors voiced support of Seibels. Stok« ?aid after the conference adjourned he Was gratified as to the overall results of the conference. "They did something positive," he said regarding passage of the Maier amendment, "and headed off a negative." .-£ The "negative" was an additional resolution sponsored trf Seibels and Mayor Henry Loeb of Memphis, calling for backing of Nixon's leadership in the Southeast Asia war. Although the war was not specifically mentioned by name, the measure urged the nation's mayors to strive to "promote these principles that bring our country to a just, honofabl* and lasting peace." f> O T E IVI ~-*~ *JT Q T E IV!
