* Evacuation Issue Before Congress Monday, April 14, 1975, THE HERALD, Prove, Utah -Page 5 (Continued from Page 1) Saturday, with the fuse on the Vietnam situation looking short, and burning. Over the weekend, senators fretted publicly over the vision of U.S. troops once more battling Vietnamese — and possibly even mutinous South Vietnamese. They differed over what powers the President already has to use troops in such an evacuation, but none quibbled with the assessment one Pentagon official gave a newsman: "The Phnom Penh evacuation was child's play compared to wtiat we could face in Saigon." In besieged Phnom Penh Saturday, a U.S. helicopter fleet, guarded by 316 Marines evacuated 276 Americans, Cambodians and third country nationals in just 2 hours and 25 minutes. The Marines never fired a shot, nor were they fired upon. Finally, a Marine hauled down the American flag, folded it neatly into the military triangle, helped close the iron embassy gates, and left. But for a Vietnam evacuation, the senators foresaw chaos and possibly bloodshed if Congress authorized Ford to dispatch the troops needed to oversee an evacuation on the huge scale he says may be necessary. The President asked authori- ty to send troops to Vietnam "for the limited purpose" of evacuating the estimated 6,000 Americans still in the country and up to 200,000 South Vietnamese whose lives might be endangered by a total Communist takeover. Sen. Jacob Javits, R-N.Y.. suggested Sunday such a massive evacuation of South Vietnamese would require perhaps a full division, 18,000 to 20,000 Marines. Other estimates in Washington ranged as high as two divisions, or 40,000 troops, and Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., said the Marines might well face two "problems" in any really large scale evacuation. "One, the possibility of the (South) Vietnamese turning on our own people, and this could be a very catastrophic situation," said Jackson. "The other would be an attempt by the North Vietnamese, with the very large force they have in the Saigon area, to undertake direct military action against the American forces." Jackson and Sen. John Sparkman. D-Ala., chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said in separate interviews they believed Ford has several contingency plans ready for a Vietnam evacuation. They gave no details. Leaders Clamp Full Curfew on Capital (Continued from Page 1) photographer said only helicopters flew in suport of government troops trying desperately to plug the holes in the city perimeter. The U.S.-supplied gunships fired electric Catling machine guns and rockets at the advancing rebels, but the effect of their raids was unknown. Inside Phnom Penh, there was no panic. People obeyed the curfew, partly because Radio Phnom Penh threatened arrest and courts martial for those on the streets. It was the Buddhist New Year's Day in Phnom Penh, but little joy. A Cambodian air force pilot defected to the rebels with his T28 fighter-bomber and bombed the high command headquarters in downtown Phnom Penh during a meeting of the nation's new ruling committee, which has pledged to fight on. An official announcement on Phnom Penh Radio said there were no casualties among Cambodian government or military officials but that a building Sadat Gives Views on Middle East WASHINGTON (UPI) Egyptian President Anwar Sadat feels President Ford should start all over again in his Middle East policy. Israeli Foreign Minister Yigal Allon, hinting of new U.S. pressure to reach a settlement, isn't so sure. Neither country seemed willing to accept any more of Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's "shuttle diplomacy" seeking an interim agreement. Ford's reassessment of foreign policy turns to the Mideast today. He called to the White House his ambassadors to Egypt, Herman Eilts; Jordan, Thomas Pickering; Syria, Richard Murphy, and Israel, Kenneth Keating. In his speech to Congress last week, Ford made this reference to the Mideast: "The active role of the United States must and will be continued. The drift toward war must and will be prevented." near the downtown high command was destroyed and seven persons were killed. Later radio reports said insurgent shells also hit the high command headquarters, again causing no casualties. (Unofficial reports reaching Saigon via private radio said dissident government troops were responsible both for the bombing and the shelling. • (The radio reports said government troops turned their guns on the capital's northern defense line in apparent dissatisfaction with policies of the new leadership committee.) Heavy shellfire hit the northern perimeter of the capital and artillery and rockets slammed into the airport. The insurgent forces effectively closed the airport and moved to within gunfire range of the western edge of the capital itself. UPI newsmen at the scene said the rebels had moved into Pochentong village between the airport and Phnom Penh, and into northwestern suburbs of the tity. The city and the airport are connected by a four-mile-long road. Viet Reds (Continued from Page 1) miles south of Zuan Loc and three miles north of Trang Bom where some 200 dug-in North Vietnamese have cut Highway 1. The reports said airborne troops around Xuan Loc seemed relaxed and in good morale. The paratroopers moved their comand post, however, because of heavy mortar fire. Officers said two Communist forward observers were killed this morning, diminishing the effectiveness of incoming fire. A government plane dropped a single 10,000-pound bomb late Sunday on a suspected Communist troop position northeast of Xuan Loc, military sources said. Military sources said five Communist tanks and 14 trucks had been knocked out by airstrikes after being located by reconnaissance planes. Refugees fleeing down Highway 1 toward Saigon said the North Vietnamese had constructed deep bunkers to withstand the heavy bombardments by planes, tanks and artillery.

LOGAN - "Fifty per cent of every marriage is a man. Why then are family life classes always taught and mostly taken just by women?" asks Dennis Barrett, a student at Utah State University. Mr. Barrett, a home economics major, will be student teaching in some area of family life this summer in the Ogden School District. His decision to major in home economics was derived from a desire to teach cooking, n field in which he has worked as a professional. "And when I made the decision on teaching, I learned the only way to do it on the secondary level in Utah was to major in home economics," related Barrett. But in taking the courses for his degree. Barrett became interested in the family life subjects, and to form an opinion that the topics were just as vital to men as to women. "I've really enjoyed the family and child development classes. They've helped me to better understand my own two children. And as for the sewing classes, men should be able to at least operations fund also will be discussed. Provisions for the budget changes were made by the last state legislature. The board also is scheduled to consider updating charges for rental of school facilities. The board will meet at 9 a.m. at the district headquarters, 50 N. Main, American Fork. BRYCEB.ORTON Acting Dean To Receive ' Honor Dr. Bryce B.

Along with Bob Sadler, Bountiful, he will represent the approximately 40,000 4-H'ers in Utah at the conference to explore issues and programs of concern to youth. "Merril will have an opportunity to communicate face-to-face with members of congress and officials of more than 35 federal and private agencies to gain a fuller understanding of the roles of government and national organizations," announced Gerald Olson, Utah State University 4-H supervisor. He has been active in 4-H for 10 years, served on the Utah County 4-H Youth Executive Council, and was co-leader of the Palmyra 4-H Livestock Club.

A special feature of this year's conference will be a "Bicentennial Bazaar" when delegates will share program ideas for celebrating the nation's 200th birthday. Heritage tours and an evening at the Kennedy Center are also included in the program. Conference delegates represent the broad spectrum of 4-H members in rural, suburban and urban communities of the nation and from Canada.

They will perhas be on their own before marriage, and after marriage there may be a period of time when their wife is in the hospital or away from home for awhile," he added. "I don't buy the situation where the man comes home and does nothing but sit around while the wife does all the chores, especially if she works also," Mr. Barrett said. "So why shouldn't potential husbands and fathers learn skills and attitudes in family life areas?" he asked. Mr. Barrett was formerly active in rodeos and still does a little riding when he finds time, and also trap shoots. He sees no compromise to his masculinity by being in what is currently a woman's field - a field he hopes will open up to men in the future. Before coming to USU, Barrett attended the Southern Nevada Vocational Technical Center School of Culinary Arts. He then had his own catering service for awhile. He also worked for J. C. Penney's when they went into the restaurant business and for Dixie College's food service.
