   Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Ada, Oklahoma                               Funds Increase For Colleges Next Year---But Don't Meet Requests OKLAHOMA CITY 18 of Oklahoma's state universi- ties and colleges got less than they asked for as the Board of Regents divided million in education funds Tuesday, But thanks to about mil- lion in new money, they all re- ceived more than they had to The University of Oklahoma received the biggest share of the funds, million, which was million short of the million the university had asked for. Oklahoma State Uni- versity received the next larg- est appropriation, millon. OSU officials had requested million. However, the new Tulsa Ju- nior College actually fared best of all the schools. Regents ap- propriated to the Tulsa school, which was more than even the legislature had asked for them and was only short of what the school officials had asked themselves. After funds for special projects were allocated, regents had only million of the million in new money to distribute among all the state schools. Regents dis- tributed the remainder by giv- ing each of the 18 schools about 27 per cent of their requested budget increases. "Each institution shares in the new money to the same de- gree, proportionately, that he (sic) had shared in the original request for said Dr. E. T. Dunlap, chancellor. However, to meet that 27 per cent figure, regents had to re- ject a request for the Southwest Center for Safety Ed- ucation and Research at Okla- homa State University. They also cut from to the amount of money for tick re- search at OSU. They further rejected a 000 request for a conservation and aviation program at South- eastern State College. Finally, they turned down a al- location to increase enrollment at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center. Regents were East Central's allocation amounts to The amount requested was 538. This year's allocation is more than last year's._____________________ told the increase could be made without the new money. However, regents did set aside for support of communi- ty junior colleges. Midwest City's Oscar Rose Junior College will get Altus Junior Col- lege will get Seminole, Poteau, El Reno, and Sayre junior colleges will split Dunlap said the support funds represented state aid equal to 52 per cent of per capita cost spent at state junior colleges. The leg- islature passed a bill increasing state aid from 50 to 75 per cent of per capita cost. Dr. Dunlap said, however, that there was not enough money available to give full three-fourths aid. The board did approve a pro- posal to increase enrollment fees at community junior colleg- es from to to bring them in line with regular junior colleges.

The Senate debate on Cambodia is likely to last until U. S. troops have been withdrawn, according to a news item today. It would be just like the Senate to solve the Cambodian problem by July 2.

After Blackmun became the first high court nominee in eight rist is eligible to assume the post at any time, although Blackmun's office and the high court said no time has been set. In Rochester, Blackmun took the news of the Senate in typical low-keyed fashion, saying "I'm just not up to making any ver- bal statement." But in a written statement, Blackmun said "I am troubled by an awareness of the awe- some responsibility of this new assignment. I sincerely hope that I have the character and years to win unanimous Senate others were Arthur J. Goldberg and Byron R. telephoned his congratulations. "The President is highly pleased and gratified that the Senate has acted so expeditious- ly to confirm Judge said deputy White House press secretary Gerald L. Warren. Unlike the bitter fights over Haynsworth and Carswell, Blackmun's nomination was put to a roll-call vote following speeches by liberal and conserv- ative senators, all in praise. One, Sen. Ernest F. Rollings, D-S.C., threw jabs at Northern liberals who led the fight against Haynsworth. He accused the Senate of us- ing a double standard by ap- plying a stiffer test to Southern nominees. Nixon, in turning to Blackmun, had accused the Sen- ate of discrimination against the South. The six senators who did not vote were Birch Bayh, D-Ind., a leader in the fight against Hayn- SAIGON (AP) The U.S. Command announced today the first American troop withdraw- als from Cambodia. At the same time South Vietnamese forces launched a drive along Highway 1 toward the capital of Phnom Penh, 50 miles away. Associated Press correspond- ent David Rosenzweig reported that a South Vietnamese ar- mored column accompanied by U.S. advisers pushed up High- way 1 from the provincial capi- tal of Svay Rieng to Kompong Trabek, 25 miles to the west. The armored column linked up with South Vietnamese marines driving up the Mekong River, then engaged about 600 enemy troops three miles beyond Kom- pong Trabek in heavy fighting. The announced purpose of the drive was to clear Highway, 1 for the repatriation of Viet- namese in Cambodia. Informed sources said the ini- tial U.S. troop withdrawals from Cambodia totaled fewer than 2, 000 men. The command first announced that elements of the 3rd Bri- gade, 9th Infantry Division, had to South Viet- namese troops are operating in- side Cambodia on more than a dozen fronts on both sides of the Mekong River. Allied headquarters said American and South Viet- namese forces have killed more than North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops and seized nearly weapons and hun- dreds of tons of ammunition in Cambodia since the drive began two weeks ago. South Vietnamese losses were Dut at more than 350 troops killed and about wounded. In action inside Cambodia Tuesday, a column of South Vietnamese tanks pushing North from Svay Rieng met re- sistance from dug-ir enemy in sworth and Goldwater. Carswell; R-Ariz..

U.S. Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird said in Wash- ington earlier that several thou sand American troops already had been withdrawn from Cam- bodia. Sources said the 9th Division unit had secured Ba Thu, about a mile inside Cambodia, after the North Vietnamese base area had been seized by South Viet- namese.

The South Vietnamese drove :he enemy from Kompong Trach today and joined up with South Vietnamese marines who had been fighting along the Me- kong River. In the. afternoon the South Vietnamese engaged the enemy again, this time three miles north of Kompong Trach. Enemy forces were estimated at 600. U.S. 25th Division infantry- men in the Parrot's Beak north- west of Tay Ninh and 2% miles inside Cambodia, came under heavy North Vietnamese fire which killed five Americans and wounded 44. Thirteen enemy were killed. On another front inside Cam- bodia, more than 200 miles northeast of Saigon, troops of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division suffered two killed and five wounded. They uncovered a munitions stockpile that included 200 riflesj'J.5 .50-caliber machine guns, ami 200 pistols. In Saigon, two terrorist at- tacks were reported. Viet Cong agents threw a grenade at a truck filled with South Korean sailors, then opened fire with ri- fles. One Korean was killed and four wounded.

A group of young people had tried to organize an "Oklahoma Musical Arts Festival" to be held in Wintersmith Park. However, the park board turned down their application for use of the park, the lodge and amphitheatre because of the absence of any responsible sponsoring organization. After the park board's refusal, a resident of the Pickett com- munity offered his land, a six- acre tract, for the festival. See "Rock Festival" Page 2) National Legion Chief To Make Ada Address Milton Patrick, Skiatook, na- tional commander of the Amer- ican Legion, will be the guest speaker at a banquet in Ada May 20. He will be speaking at the 16th anniversary banquet to commemorate the founding of McCall's Chapel School. The banquet, which is spon- sored by Ada's American Le- gion, Post 72, will be held at 7 p.m. in the ballroom of the East Central Student .Union Building. The Rev. Ray Lindsay, direc-- tor at McCall's Chapel, said the banquet is not a benefit. Ticket charges, are made only to handle the ex- pense for the affair. The Rev. Lindsay will serve as master of ceremonies. P. H. Allen, local American Legion commander, will introduce Patrick, the national com- mander. The theme for the banquet is "Dignity, Happiness and Self Worth for the Mentally Retarded." entirely cleared, using outside forces. The protesters remained in the end zone throughout t h e ROTC review, but broke ranks and surrounded some of the ca- dets as the cadets were leaving the field. After a plea over the public address system by OU President Dr. J. Herbert Hollomon, the demonstrators fell back and let the ROTC students leave the field. The only incident of violence occurred when a student with a cast on one leg jumped from the stands and kicked a seated pro- tester in the face with the in- jured leg. OU authorities led him out of the stadium, and the demonstrator said he would file charges. Most of the protesters chant- ed anti-war slogans, some ob- scene, and sang patriotic songs throughout the hour and one-half of the review. Demonstrators carried placards with slogans such as, "Veterans for the South Oval on the main j that all U.S. losses in Cambodia campus.

Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said the opening round, set late today or Thurs- day, involves an amendment to cut off funds for U.S. operations in Cambodia effective June 30. That is the deadline an- nounced by President Nixon for withdrawal of the American forces he sent across the border to destroy Communist sanctuar- ies and supply depots. In a preview of the long de- bate ahead, five critics of U.S. policy appealed in an unprece- dented network television broadcast for public support of legislation to compel American withdrawal from South Viet- nam. That broadcast, and the Sen- ate timetable designed by Mans- field, are part of a campaign, Democratic sources said, to gain votes for a phased cutoff of appropriations to finance U.S. military operations in Cambo- dia, then in Laos, then in South Vietnam itself. Meantime, two Republican senators, GOP Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania, and Rob- ert J. Dole of Kansas, intro- duced proposals to put the Sen- ate's stamp of approval on the U.S. thrust into Cambodia by authorizing such action to pro- tect the lives of American forces in Vietnam. The measures are designed to Sixth General Dies In Action In S. Vietnam SAIGON (AP) Maj. Gen. John A. B. Dillard, commander of- the U.S. Army Engineer Command in Vietnam, was killed Tuesday when the heli- copter in which he was flying was shot down by enemy gun- ners, the U.S. Command an- nounced today. Dillard was the sixth Amsri- can general killed in action in the Vietnam war and the second in a little more than a month.

But a flap developed quickly over whether Scott's proposal had the Nixon adminis- tration's backing. Scott indicat- ed it did, the White House indi- cated it didn't.

'Peace Now.': One group carried a large American flag, and some car- ried small flags. They applaud- ed, jeered and shouted their now-familiar slogan of, "1-2-3-4, We don't want your Tho demonstrators had CHERYL LYNN BENHAM woman at Shawnee, a young mother and her 7-year-old daughter in Oklahoma City, and a University of Oklahoma senior and his teen-age girl friend at Norman. The weapons, too, were differ- ent in each hatchet, a knife, and a gun. But a weird senselessness runs through each of the killings, and possibly a strange sexual as- pect. Each of the victims was hacked, stabbed or shot multiple times, far more times than nec- essary to kill. The first victim was the el- derly Shawnee woman, 77-year- old Mrs. Willie Willmpn Norton, who apparently surprised an in- truder in a hallway of her home early on the morning of April 21. When her husband rushed into the hallway, aroused by her cries, lie saw a well-dressed young man standing over his wife with what appeared to be a hammer. The intruder fled, and police later found a bloody hatchet only about 100 feet away. And only 30 minutes later, four blocks away, an intruder of the same description risked reach- ing across a sleeping dog and a sleeping husband to touch an- other Shawnee woman, asleep in her bed. The intruder fled when the husband awakened. Shawnee police also found tools and other items, apparent- ly taken in a series of burgla- ries near the Norton home, strewn about yards and streets of the neighborhood. Police Study Burglary At Marion Fenton Officers today were still in- vestigating a weekend burg- lary of Marion Fenton Pontiac, 315 E. Main. A total of about in cash and uncashed checks was taken. Of that amount, was in cash. Detective Capt. Doyle Cran- ford said entry into the build- ing was made through a win- dow at the back of the building. The money and checks were taken from a desk drawer in the office._____ Twelve days later Mrs. Patri- cia Henderson Riggs. 26, and her 7-year-old daughter were stabbed to death in their north- west Oklahoma City home. The woman had suffered "numer- ous" stab wounds, and the little girl was stabbed 12 times, police said, but Mrs. Riggs' 5- year-old son, asleep in another room, was not harmed. Apparently neither the woman nor the little girl was sexually molested. This past weekend David Sloan, 21, of Amarillo, Tex., and Sheryl Lynn Benham, 19, of Ok- lahoma City, were killed some- time after leaving a fraternity party in Norman late Saturday night. Their bodies were found in the trunk of an auto on the western outskirts of Norman Monday. Each had been shot 10 times, and police said it apparently was done with great delibera- tion after they had been put into the trunk. Miss Benham's body was nude except for a blanket around her legs, but polke could not deter- mine whether she was raped. Laboratory findings are expect- ed next week, _______ One American survived the crash but was seriously injured.

Wellington, who has been a member of the club for 13 years, will take office in Sep- tember. H. A. Blackburn is the new vice president. T. K.
