Approved 85-4, the Senate's version setting defense appro- priations at billion was some billion less than asked by the Pentagon. The House has approved ?70 billion. An addi- tional ?2 billion for military housing and construction will be covered in other legislation. Senate galleries were cleared and chamber doors bolted Mon- day for debate that led to a ban on using money for "introduc- tion of American ground troops in Labs and Thailand." The vote on this amendment was 73-1? after two hours of secret discus- sion, only the fifth time since World War II the chamber has been closed.

Current donations amount to 688.W, still a long way oft from the required in 1968 to help all the area's needy. But the requests for help to the Salvation Army are not run- ning behind last year's pace sayi Captain Charles Sargent, local of- ficer in charge. Those needing the Salvation Army's holiday gift of a food order, a clothing order and a new toy for each child, are numerous as ever. The requests come from the needy, the unfortunates and the forgotten elderly. Often, they are from widowed or fami- lies where the father has desert- ed, and the welfare check is just enough to cover the bills. There is nothing left for Christmas. Or perhaps the request is from the working father of a large family of 10 or more children whose wages are not sufficient to support so many people and have extra during the holiday season. Wherever the requests come from really doesn't matter. What does matter is that these people are hi need they need assist- ance from an affluent society that can well afford to give it to them.

Sullivan strung up five more vetoes today in an attempt to block the library construc- tion project, purchase of the Neverett property and installation of a 40-unit radio station for the De- partment of Public Works. Vetoed by the mayor were three resolutions which wrapped up the con- troversy ridden library project. Match Donation They provided a two-part funding plan to put up the city's to match the sup- plementary donated by Eliot A. Carter and awarded for the taking of six properties in the Park Street area for construction of the li- brary. The Neverett resolution made a second trip to the mayor's desk, where it was already vetoed, to clear up legal diU ficulties hindering the sale of in bonds to finance pur- chase of the Garden Street property. Transfers within the DPW budget to to finance the radio installation were authorized in the fifth res- olution vetoed by Sullivan. All of the Vetoed measures will return "to the Board of Al- dermen Tuesday night for an- other vote of approval. The meeting will be the board's final session before its tenure expires Dec. 31. Sullivan said the radio system resolution would be vetoed con- ditionally. He said he is not opposed to the installation of a radio system but favors 20 units to start instead of 40. The partial Installation, he said, would allow the DPW to gauge maintenance and repair costs be- fore committing itelf to a com- plete system. A contract award for purchase of the system was considered by the finance committee last night but no final action was taken be- cause the committee lacked a quorum. Sullivan said he would issue a statement later today to explain further his stand on the library vetoes. He has opposed further appro- priations for the library because of long-range costs anticipated for the joint library-arts and science center project. Trustees Comment In another development, the Board of Library Trustees an-' swered charges leveled against it by the advocates of the Hill Pond site for the new library!

Warns Hanoi The President coupled his an- nouncement with a renewed warning to North Vietnam that he will take "strong and effec- tive measures" if he finds that "increased enemy action jeop- ardizes our remaining forces in Vietnam."

"A winning position in the sense of obtaining a just peace (whether negotiated or not) and of maintaining an independent, non-Communist South Vietnam has been achieved but we are not yet Nixon quoted Thompson as saying. Nixon did not say he agrees that a "winning position" hai been achieved. But White House officials did not quarrel with the assessment. GIs Page!
