ALL EDITIONS 41 The Arizona Phoenix, Than., Jane 18, Senate balks on Thailand jet proposal United Press International WASHINGTON - The Senate rejected a proposal yesterday to provide Thailand with modern Jet fighters to protect itself against Communist air raids. An amendment by Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C., to permit the Defense Department to give Thailand the planes directly, without going through the congressional foreign aid process, was defeated 45 to 36. The vote put the Senate another step closer to a showdown on legislation introduced by Sens. John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky., and Frank Church, D-Idaho, to cut off funds for future U.S. military operations into Cambodia. Although no time was set for the final vote, Senate leaders were aiming for next week. The Thurmond and Cooper- Church proposals were offered as amendments to a $300 million foreign military sales bill that has been" before Congress for five weeks. Thurmond's amendment would, have cleared the way for the Pentagon to supply the "international fighter" directly to Thailand without the necessity of getting congressional approval through a foreign military aid bill. The plane is specifically designed for the use by small countries unable to handle faster, more sophisticated jets like the F4 Phantom flown by U.S. pilots in Vietnam. Although the United States is paying for the plane, it would be obsolete for use by U.S. forces. Congress already has given the Defense Department authority to provide the international fighter to Vietnamese forces, which receive military assistance from the United States outside the foreign aid program. Church said there was no argument about giving the plane and other war materials to the Saigon government as a necessary step to enable the South Vietnamese to take over a greater burden of the war. "That is the battle front," Church argued. "But, if., the authority were extended to Thailand, we would be saying Thailand has been incorporated into the battle front." Thurmond contended that Thailand needs the plane to defend itself from possible Communist air strikes without relying on American forces. He said this policy of Asian self-reliance was the very one that critics of the war in Southeast Asia have been demanding and which President Nixon has adopted. Stennis sees amendment on war limitation WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. John Stennis, D-Miss., suggested yesterday it might be necessary to amend the Constitution to spell out the authority of the President and the gray area of undeclared wars. He said he could foresee difficulties if Congress sought to put a 30-day limit on a military action ordered by a president. "The trouble is," Stennis said on the CBS Radio program, "Capitol Cloakroom," "once you start in a war and get in for 30 days, you are well into a war, irretrievably so." He said a limitation might be on conditions rather than time. It is a difficult matter, he said, adding that he had tried unsuccessfully at times to put something down on paper. "But I believe out of this debate we will get some declaration," he said. "Jt may require some constitutional amendment." Stennis, who is opposed to the pending Church-Cooper amendment to prohibit reentry of U.S. troops into Cambodia, said there is a chance that the "troops might have to be sent back into that country after the scheduled June 30 withdrawal. "There is always that chance," he said. Stennis said he doesn't see much chance of further significant defense budget cuts for fiscal 1971 but is hopeful for reductions in 1972 as troops we withdrawn from Va \fihui Soviets release famed molecular biologist from mental hospital New Yflfk Thnes Service MOSCOW—Zhores A. Medvedev, the biologist whose forced detention in a mental hospital touched off strong protests from leading Soviet scientists and writers, was provisionally released yesterday and permitted to go home. Friends of Medvedev said that they understand that authorities have not given Medvedev a clean bill of health, and have reserved the right to have him re-committed to the hospital in Kaluga, not far from his home in Obninsk, about 60 miles southwest of Moscow. Medvedev, who had made his scientific reputation in the Soviet Union for his research in molecular biology, had run afoul of authorities for his writings, unpublished here, complaining of restrictions on Soviet scientists' ability to communicate and travel freely abroad. He was fired from his job as head of a laboratory in Obninsk, an atomic research center, last year and was without a job for nine months. He was seized at his home on May 29 and taken without any court order to the Kaluga mental hospital. There, he was examined by at least five different teams of doctors, his friends have reported. His forced confinement led not OPEN DAILY 10-10 - SUN. 10-6 only to protests on the legality of the action but assertions of his sanity from such leading scientists as Pyotr L. Ka- pitea, Andrei D. Sakharov, Mikhail A. Leontovich, physicists; Boris L. Astaurov, a geneticist, and Vladimir A. Engelhardt, a biochemist. They are all members of the Academy of Sciences, a very prestigious body. In addition, Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, the novelist, wrote a passionate attack on the detention, comparing it to the gas chambers, and other literary figures who knew Medvedev added their complaints. 4 Mexicans Jailed for smuggling heroin SAN ANTONIO, Tex.
