sence of a declaration of war to 60 days unless Congress orders an end to such use sooner Sen Jacob K Javits one of the chief architects of the war powers legislation said Monday it would mit the President to act militarily in the Cambodian situation But some congressional staff sources believe this authority is clouded by the congressional order to former dent Nixon to end involvement in Indochina by Aug 15 1973 That legislation said specifically that U.S military forces would be banned after that date on over or off the shores of Cambodia Laos and South Vietnam A House International
