Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Study Criticizes Army's Deployment Plan in Europe WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. military forces are poorly positioned in Europe to turn back the most likely avenue of a Soviet attack, according to a Brookings Institution staff study. T h e research organization said Sunday that U.S. ground forces should be revamped to counter the possibility of a short, intense was in which Russia would commit massive forces aimed at swift conquest of Western Europe. The study said American army forces now arc geared for relatively slow mobilization and a protracted war in Europe. The study, by army Col. Rich ard D. Lawrence and Jeffrey Record, said positions covered by American, British and other allied troops are a legacy of post-World war II occupation zones. They proposed moving two U.S. divisions from Southern Germany into the Northern German plain, now covered largely by the British, to con- Gallup: 51 % Favor Nixon Impeachment PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -Fifty-one percent of the persons responding to a recent survey by the Gallup poll say President Nixon should be impeached by the house of representatives. However, there is a five percent drop from the number approving of impeachment by the house to the number wanting Nixon’s removal from office by the senate, the latest Gallup poll shows. The Gallup survey, taken in mid-July of 1,555 adults, showed the public 51 to 30 percent in favor of the house voting impeachment. Nineteen percent offered no opinion. In the survey, 46 percent responded yes 38 percent no and 16 percent had no opinion to the question, . . Do you think Nixon’s actions are serious enough to warrant his being removed from the presidency, or not?” The public’s view on both the house impeachment and senate removal from office questions has not varied much in the last four surveys, according to the Gallup organization. In a June survey, 50 percent said Nixon should be impeached, with 32 percent disagreeing and 18 percent offering no opinion. On the question of removal from office, 44 percent said last June the President should be removed from office, 41 percent disagreed and 15 percent offered no opinion. In an April study, 46 percent said Nixon should be removed from office, 42 percent disagreed and 12 percent offered no opinion. front large .Soviet forces that| could be expected to move in through that front in the event of war. Measures proposed in the study, including a greater com-! bat-to-support troop ratio with an accompanying reduction of almost 22,000 U.S. soldiers in Europe, would save about $1.2 million a year, the authors said. They recommended the army revamp its forces from 13 and one-third regular divisions and eight in the national guard to eight regular divi sions and 13 others made up of mixtures of regular and reserve troops with readiness goals of v arying lengths. The more integrated active reserve organization would allow a faster mobilization and buildup in NATO in event of a war threat, the study said. Under present war planning, four and one-third regular army divisions stationed in Germany would be reinforced by another three and two-thirds divisions, for a total of eight, in the first 30 days after mobilization. Another proposal envisioned stationing the bulk of six U.S. divisions in Germany on a regular basis, instead of the present four and two-thirds.

The workers, who had been on strike since Friday, overwhelmingly approved a new contract Sunday. The pact was hammered out in negotiations between United Auto Workers and GM negotiators Sunday morning. But the nation’s biggest automaker was still crippled by strikes involving 13,500 UAW workers at its St. Louis and Lordstown, Ohio, assembly plants. Another 2,150 GM workers have been laid off indefinitely because the parts they produce won’t be needed until the two lengthy strikes are settled. “more optimistic than ever” tide of impeachment voted out EPA i.s reassessing its DDT ban about the stratified charge en- by the house judiciary commit- and may soon recommend a gines, which spread combustion tee i.s too vague and unsatisfac- more liberal policy for its use. over a longer period of time to t o r y “in several strategic ------------- obtain a more efficient burn,    ways,” an expert on constitu- “These engines have two tional law says, rather important character- prof.

Kuwait Shuns Oi Aid Push by U.N. UNITED NATIONS (AP) -Kuwait, one of the wealthiest oil-producing nations, has bluntly declined to contribute to a U.N.-sponsored emergency aid program for countries hardest hit by swollen fuel prices. “Kuwait, being dependent on a depletable source of income, has to endeavor to achieve development and growth . . . Accordingly, Kuwait finds herself in a position that does not allow her to contribute to the special fund,” declared a Kuwaiti note to Secretary-General Waldheim released over the weekend. Meredith Plans To Appeal Ban JACKSON, Miss. (AP)—James Meredith says he will appeal a Mississippi election commission ruling barring him from running for congress as an independent this fall.

Meredith led a five-man race in the primary but withdrew to run as an independent in November. July 29 Rain Hits Town Again WAYNESBURG, Pa.

Paper Calls for Nixon To Resign DENVER (AP) - The Denver Post has called on President Nixon to resign immediately, saying any attempt he makes to prove his innocence “can only be at the expense of the national well-being.” Sunday in an editorial, the Post noted “the best he could hope for would be technical exoneration. The most he could hope for would be a feeble grasp on power for another two years.” Heavy Shelling SAIGON (AP) — Communist forces kept up their attack along the northern coast of South Vietnam Monday, heavily shelling the Da Nang air base and the area around it for the second time in IO days, the South Vietnamese military com mand announced.
