Daily News (Newspaper) - June 9, 1969, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania PAGE 12 THE DAILY NEWS Monday June 9 1969 Withdrawal Is Called Tokenism WASHINGTON UPISen George S McGovern DSD says President Nixons nounced plans to withdraw 25000 American troops from Vietnam is tokenism But other congressional reaction was guarded or favorable It kind of fits the advance prediction McGovern said Sunday I dont see that as anything more than token action It doesnt fundamentally change the character ofour involvement Its a very very small reduction one that I am grateful for but I dont regard that as a fundamental change In our policy he said McGovern who has called for withdrawal of US forces from Vietnam said former Defense Secretary Robert S McNamara on a trip to Vietnam two years ago expressed the opinion American forces there were swollen beyond what was actually needed Therefore the notion of withdrawing 25000 or even 50000 troops to me is tote nlsm McGovern said In contrast House GOP Leader Gerald R Ford of Michigan said the announce was good news He said it Is undoubtedly the first of a series of steps aimed at giving greater and greater responsibi lity to the South Vietnamese Sen John Stennis chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a supporter of a hardline policy in Vietnam said he was pleased Nixon thinks he can withdraw the troops Im really not surprised Stennis said Im really not too hopeful the South Vietna mese forces will be able to rapidly assume this burden of fighting and be effective 1 wouldnt think it is merely tokenism but I do think the President is feeling his way Stennis said Sen J William Fulbrlght D Ark chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and long a critic of US involvement in Vietnam said he would not have any comment until he had studied the text at the communique issued by Nixon and South Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu at the conclusion of their Midway talk Leaders At Annual UCC Meet In Huntingdon

Sheares II con ference chaplain Washington Window WASHINGTON UPI Sen Barry M Goldwater RAriz who once ran for the presiden cy himself wants a constitu tional amendment to make it easier for mobile Americans to vote for president Sen Edward M Kennedy D Mass who may be running for the same office in the future also wants to relax state residence requirements to let more citizens vote for pres ident But he thinks the states can be forced to act by federal law Both Goldwaters proposed amendment and Kennedys bill which has 26 cospon sors in the Senate would allow new residents of a state to vote for president after they have lived there for 30 days State Action Slow The state could make this change in their own laws but many have been slow to move A commission named by President John FKennedy on registration and voter participa tion came up with a report in 1963 urging such action Sixteen states in 1968 allowed citizens to vote for but not for state and local and members of 31 days of residence Thirtyone allowed the vote after three months But Mississippi law carried a twoyear residence require ment and 15 states and the District of Columbia still required one year Three states had a sixmonth residence requirement An estimated onesixth of the population moves from one state to another over a 10year span Census Bureau estimates supplied to Kennedy indicated that 53 million citizens were disqualified to vote in 1968 state and congressional elections by residence requirements Be cause of the easier residence requirements for presidential voting in some of the states only 19 million were disquali fied to vote for president The Census Bureau estimated only 280000 would have been disqualified by a 30iay res idence requirement But those who want to shorten residence requirements for voting in presidential elections acknowledge that a longer stay may be justified to vote for members ofCongress and candidates for state and local office Popular Election A provision in a proposed constitutional amendment ap proved by the House Judiciary Committee would permit Con gress to set uniform residence requirements in all states for voting in presidential elections This is the amendment that would provide for popular election of the president instead of the present Electoral College system None of these proposals to promote a greater turnout of voters would reach a much larger segment of the popula tion which failed to vote in 1968 The 1968 turnout was about 72 million women were triple that of last year In the new contract the emphasis will be
