Wayne Morse, one of the first members of congress to speak out against U. S. involvement in Vietnam, died Monday at the age of 73.

The vote was 346 to 40. The final decision on whether to allow live broadcast coverage was up to the committee itself. Committee approval was expected. The committee is scheduled to begin debating articles of impeachment against President was reported by committee members to have said Doar’s case would bo insufficient for conviction of President Nixon in a senate trial. Committee members quoted Garrison as saying the committee should place itself in the position of “a prudent prosecutor” and not start a case it can’t win in the senate.

Defeat by Packwood Morse was ousted by Republican Bob Packwood, who claimed a narrow margin of victory. Four years later, Morse, then 71, was beaten handily in a race against Sen. Hatfield (R-Ore.). Two months ago, Morse again won the Democratic senatorial nomination — and the right to challenge Packwood — by defeating state Senate President Jason Boe. 44. in Oregon’s primary election. Morse was known for his unpopular views and unwillingness to compromise on issues. Tonkin Opposition He and former Sen. Gruening ( D - A I a s k a ), who died last month at the age of 87, were the only two senators who voted against the Tonkin gulf resolution in 1964. President Johnson used the measure as a functional declaration of war in Southeast Asia. Morse’s age was a major campaign issue during the May primary, but he countered by saying that many great U. S. senators had performed their best service after they were 70 years old. But, he added, “I think everybody realizes that it isn’t to be expected that I would run for re-election in 1980.” Once Republican Morse, once a Republican himself, switched to independent in 1952 when he and party leaders agreed that he was too liberal for the G.O.P. Three years later, he became a Democrat and was re-elected in 1956. His detractors claimed that Morse, who earned the nickname “Tiger of the Senate,” was too cantankerous and too much of a loner to accomplish anything for Oregon in a single six-year term. In 1944, when Morse first ran for the senate, his campaign slogan was “Principle above Politics.” Three decades later, the slogan was basically the same: “I shall work and fight for the restoration of integrity in our own government.” Son of Farmer The son of a Wisconsin farmer, Morse was born in Madison on Oct. 20. 1900. He earned A B. and M A. degrees from the University of Wisconsin, a law degree from the University of Minnesota and a doctor of jurisprudence at Columbia university- Morse taught at Wisconsin, Minnesota and Columbia, then moved to Oregon in 1929 and became dean of the University of Oregon law school at the age of 31. case for impeachment was based on inference was chal-1 ,    lenged by some members who!

Press International Fighting raged in Cyprus Monday even after passage of a 9 a.m. CDT cease-fire deadline accepted by Greece and Turkey. U. N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim reported a Turkish air raid on Nicosia an hour and 15 minutes after that time. UPI Correspondent Michael Keats said in a dispatch from Nicosia that the deadline came and went with no sign of relaxation in the fighting. The Greek Cypriot radio said Turkish planes striking shortly before the deadline bombed a hotel in the port of Famagusta and killed a number of persons including 20 foreigners. It did not say what nationality the foreigners were. Other dispatches spoke of    a Turkish breakthrough to the Turkish Cypriot quarter of Nicosia. Ankara radio said an Athens coup overthrew the Greek government Monday but the Greek embassy in Washington said tho report was    totally unfounded. UPI correspondent John Rigos reported from Athens that the Greek military Junta remained in power and the city was normal.

One Ehrlichman Count Scrapped WASHINGTON (UPI) - U. S. District Judge Gerhard Gesell Monday threw out the conviction of John Ehrlichman on one perjury count. Gesell s^id that the statute under which Ehrlichman was charged and convicted on that count — a federal law against lying to the FBI — “was not properly invoked in this case.” U. S. Plays Key Role in Agreement WASHINGTON (UPI) - For the second time in two months, the U.S. played a key role in defusing a Mediterranean conflict that threatened to spread beyond the boundaries of actual combat. First it arranged a troop disengagement between Israel and Syria, and Monday, using the same style of shuttle diplomacy, American diplomats won agree ment for a cease-fire in Cyprus. According to Presidential Adviser Alexander Haig, the midnight state department announcement of the cease-fire was the result cf “intensive (day-long diplomatic activity” by President Nixon, Secretary o: State Kissinger and Undersecretary Joseph Sisco, Kissinger’s man-on-the-scene in Cyprus Assistant Secretary Robert McCloskey, who announced the cease-fire here, said Kissinger 'spoke with Nixon by telephone three times Sunday evening Nixon is at San Clemente. Calif. The Greek and Turkish agree ment amounted to acceptance o! a proposal by Kissinger, Mc Closkey said: Kissinger was in frequent con tact Sunday with Sisco, who has been shuttling between Athens and Ankara in an effort to get the two governments to senc representatives for talks in Lon don at the suggestion of Great Britain. in    the evacuation operation, he said, stressing that Russian naval units normally keep watch on U. S. ship activities. Generally, F’riedheim said, there has been no significant change in the disposition of the 59-ship Soviet fleet in the Mediterranean, or of the bulk of the U. S. Sixth fleet.

N. is doing a magnificent job in trying to arrange a cease-fire and I am still hopeful that this can be arranged. “My advice to you is very short: Keep calm and stay indoors and take no chances.” The cease-fire, largely a triumph of Secretary of State Kissinger, appeared to have turned the two NATO allies from the brink of war toward the negotiating table. British Foreign Secretary James Callaghan announced in The convictions in another; bondon that Britain, Greece and to be evacuated, or whether they would be taken off later.
