Niw York Timti NiWI Striill WASHINGTON A group of young Republican House mem- bers advised President Nixon in a report that many of the na- tion's most respected institu- tions of higher learning are in danger of destruction unless there is an end to campus vio- lence. The report, presented to the President at White House ceremony, warned particularly against legislation that would cut off federal funds to the uni- versities in reprisal against the actions of a minority of stu- dents. It said that any action that reated innocent and guilty stu- dents alike could drive the vast Officials to Pick School Site Friday The Board of Education will meet tomorrow night at to select a site for the proposed "super" high school.

Bernotas CONCORD, N. H. (AP) Gov. Walter Peterson has taken to television to appeal for passage of his proposed increase in the state legacy tax, which he says is needed to balance the state budget. Peterson urged Voters to "support us in our efforts to fund a truly hold-the- line budget." "We Will Fall Back" He said Wednesday night that unless his proposal is passed by the Senate, to increase the in- heritance tax from 10 per cent to 12 per cent and extend it to lineal, as well as lateral descerv dants, "we will fall back." The governor has estimated the increase In the tax would yield about million in the and suffici- ent to balance his proposed bud> get of about million. "Let's riot let our state slip he said. He said the legacy tax would be "the least painful way of solving the current fiscal pro blems." Peterson made the ap- peal on WMUR-TV in Manches- ter. The governor remains "cauti- ously as if his fav- orite phrase about the state's fi- nancial picture. He told the voters in his tele- vision1 appearance' that New Hampshire Yankees want top value for their dollar but at the same time the state, the fastest growing in New England, needs to "maintain on an even keel not to fall If the Senate approves the House-passed legacy tax in- crease, he said, it will be suffi- cient to meet his budget. He continued to stick to his posi- ion that his is a hold-the-line budget. For 'instance, he said he would like to see the University I of New Hampshire end up with the million appropriation he recommended, even though it will mean "a moderate in- rease" in tuition. The House's budget calls for S23.6 million for the university; ;he Senate's million: The budget is now in a com- mittee of conference trying to arrive at a compromise of the Senate's million figure, the. House's budget which is about million lower. The report of the conference committee Is expected about June 26. The House passed Peterson's earlier version of the legacy tax, increasing it from 10 per cent to 15 per cent and limiting it to lateral descendants. If the Senate approves the newer version, the House would tiave to agree' to it, of have it Ironed out in a conference com1 mittee. The Senate Wednesday gave Peterson a vote of confidence when it cleared his proposal to drop the exemption in the 5 per cent rooms and meals tax from 1 to 16 cents. Peterson has estimated the change would provide mil- lion in additional revenue as the state's 60 per cent share 'of the money.' An attempt to postpone the bill indefinitely was defdated 13- 9. The bill then was passed on a voice vote. Peterson, called the action major .step toward the solution majority of moderates into the arms of: the minority hard core revolutionaries who are bent on the complete destruction of higher education in the United States. The significance of the report lay not so much in these find- ings, for somewhat similar con- clusions were contained in a report released June 9 by the National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Vio- lence, headed by Milton S. Eis- enhower. What was viewed by many as significant was that the find- ings had been agreed, to by 22 5'oung Republicans representing a wide spectrum of political and social ideologies, ranging from moderate to ultraconserv- ative. Their findings are expected to help stem the mounting de- mands among many in Con- gress for restrictive legislation dealing with campus violence. The report asserted .in the strongest terms that violence was not to be tolerated on the campus any. more than in the community. But it warned against reactions that were either too lax or too brutal and indiscriminate, since the result could be to make radicals of the majority of moderate stu- dents who are now united only in questioning the promise and performance of America. The report, without using pre- cisely those words, called for an assertion of the moral lead- ership of the presidency to rec- ognize and treat areas of stu- dent concern recognized as le- gitimate by its authors.

RYAN NEW YORK (AP) Clark M. Clifford says that in view of changes in the world situation, the United States can and should reduce the fighting in Vietnam and, by the end of 1970, withdraw all ground combat troops. Clifford served President Lj'n- don B. Johnson through 1968 as secretary of defense. His state- ment, at times scorchingly criti- cal of the Saigon government, argues that the basic U.S. objec- keep the Communist North from seizing the South- has been largely accomplished.

Muskie Pushes for Cease-Fire By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) Sen Edmund S. Muskie has urged President Nixon to take a new initiative toward ending the Vietnam war by proposing a cease-fire. The Maine Democrat said in an interview though he supports peace efforts being made by the President, the time has come for a fresh approach. Additionally, the 1968 vice presidential nominee said, a proposal by former Defense Secretary Clark M. Clifford to withdraw troops this year from Vietnam "would show that we are really serious about negotiations." But Muskie said, "I think the President should propose a cease-fire. It would involve some risks, of course, but if we are ever going to end the war we will have to take risks. 'Each side would regard It risky to stop fighting.
