(AP Wirephoto) Aldermen Prune City Budget By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER The municipal money tree which this year has blossomed into a record million outlay will be only lightly pruned as it undergoes final aldermanic approval tonight. Final Session In a final review session at- tended by nine of the 15 aldermen last night, was culled from the budget. The aldermen also hope to reap i few thousand more dollars in cuts by eliminating a portion of salary accounts for fire depart- ment posts which have not been filled yet. In the informal session, cuts agreed to included: for alteration of a sand bay at the city garage on Bast Hollis Street into a repair shop; for consultation fees to expand City Hall offices; to install a radio system for the Department of Public Works; from the capital ex- penditure account for purchase of a safety van for the police de- partment, reimbursable by the federal government, because it duplicates an allocation for the same purchase In the police de- partment account; from the salary allocation of the public health di- rector because he started work in February while the allocation represents payment on a 12- month basis; from the travel allow- ance of the dog catcher which had been raised from to but which most aldermen felt should be raised only to School Budget The dent wrought in the school budget by Mayor Den nis J. Sullivan was a topic of discussion, with several of the aldermen reporting their enthusi- asm for having the budget cuts restored had been dampened by Board of Education members. Alderman Sherman Hortoh Jr. said when he first heard of the mayor's school budget cuts he had been concerned since educa- tion of children is considered a top priority. But when he spoke about the situation to several members of the school board, Horton said, he was told a transfer could be Congress Hails Troop Cutback Plan By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) Hawks and doves in Con- gress are beginning to fly a common- course toward withdrawal of U. S. troops from-Vietnam, even though they still may disagree oh when more cutbacks should take place. Almost Unanimous Doves such as Sen., John Sher- man Cooper, K-Ky., and hawks such as. Sen. John Spafkman, D-Ala., are almost unanimous in hoping that President Nixon's decision, to pull back U.S. troops is only the beginning. once a dirty word -to .Vietnam doves because it meant increased U.S. involve- ment in the war, is now taking on a new use. Both hawks and doves speak of "escalation" of troop withdrawals. .Sparkman, consistently a sup- porter of war policies, said he was disappointed that at least U.S. troops were not going to be moved out of the war area. "But if the situation works out, perhaps we can escalate the withdrawals, just as the in- put of troops was he said. The Alabama senator, a sen- ior member of the-Foreign. Re- lations Committee, .said .any such withdrawals would have, to depend, on .whether there was any response from Hanoi. Cooper, long a dove, said in a separate interview he hopes for such a response which might lead to progress in the-Paris ne- gotiations. "But if there is no such re- sponse, we should continue to arm the South Vietnamese and by stages withdraw all of our he said. Sen. John G. Tower, R-Tex., found reason to believe that what he said is the growing mil- itary capability of Saigon's troops will "enable us to make significant reductions in the numbers of American troops in South Vietnam without down- grading our military posture or sacrificing our military initia- tive." Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., a recent critic of mili- tary pressure on the enemy dur- ing the Paris talks, said he hopes Nixon's decision to pull out men signifies a change in policy which will be followed by additional with- drawals and a reduction in the level of fighting. But the assistant Democratic leader-declined to join Sens. Eu- gene J. McCarthy, D-Minn., and George S. McGovern, D-S.D., in calling the troop pullout inade- quate. Sen. Hugh Scott, R-Pa., the assistant minority leader, chid- ed doves for criticizing Nix- on for not going far enough in the pullout. He said they were getting a beginning of what they demanded and now were .com- plaining about it. Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird said Monday "we will only pull out when South-.Viet nam can replace U.S. forces." He said the troops to be withdrawn this summer will consist mainly of regular com bat yeterahs in both Army and Marine units. .Most would be brought, back to States, he said, although some may be sent to Okinawa.or Ha- waii to bolster U.S. forces there. Commission Warns on Acts To Punish Campus Militants By JOHN BERBERS York Times Newi Sirvici National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence warned today against the enactment of legislation that would punish either students or colleges in the controversy over campus disorders. "Such efforts are likely to spread, not reduce the difficul- the commission said in its first policy statement since it was appointed one year ago by former President Johnson. Any legislation.regarding cam- pus unrest, the Commission said, should "assist the univer- sities themselves to deal more effectively with the tactics of obstruction" by strengthening the First amendment Rights of free speech, assembly and pe- tition for the redress of griev- ances. At the same time, the Com- mission urged the colleges to Pope Pleads for Brotherhood of Man By GERALD MILLER GENEVA (AP) Pope Paul VI paid an historic visit to this traditional center of Protestant- ism today and appealed for uni- versal economic justice and the brotherhood of ail mankind. The Pope's 12-hour visit had two purposes: to underline the Roman Catholic Church's con- cern for the working man uy a speech to the International La- bor Organization, and to drama- Jlze the Church's concern for -the cause of Christian unity by a visit to the headquarters of the World Council of the world's leading collection of Protestant churches. Speaking to the ILO's 50th an- niversary meeting, the Pope be- the delegates from 121 nations to "hear this cry of Borrow which still rises up from suffering humanity." He pleaded for the protection of man "stunned by the growing contrast between the prodigious increase of the goods at his dis- posal, and their distribution, so easily made unjustly, between man and between peoples." miserable proletarian condition, in which the lack of food is al- lied with social degradation to create a state of real insecurity, both personal and family? "You have understood this. It is labor as a human, prime and fundamental fact which consti- tutes the vital root of your or- ganization and makes it into a magnificent tree The Pope cautioned the ILO delegates: "In this stormy hour of man- kind's history, full of peril but also filled with hope, it is up to you, for the greater part, to build justice and thus to ensure peace. and the chance for a life of meaningful endeavor. "This world of tomorrow will have to be built up by the youth of he said, "but it is up to you to prepare them for this.

"So threatening is the situa tion, so essential is the need for understanding and calm ap- praisal, that this Commission feels compelled to speak now rather than to remain silent until publication of its final re- port next the statement said. It was a carefully balancec statement, acknowledging that citizens are "justifiably angry' at the disruption of colleges across-the country by a minori- ty of students but acknowledg- ing .the need for change am more student involvement in pol icy and condemning the exces- sive use of police force against protesters at a number of col- leges.

Keefe met with Sullivan last week to ask him to reconsider the cuts. Keefe said the mayor took the matter under advisement. Expected Response He added that was the response they expected from the mayor and there are no expectations he will restore the cuts. At the Board of Education meet- ing May 26, .the board discussed eliminating bus service school students as a way of coping with the budget reduction. Some members had favored run- ning the department in: the red. C3ty Garage Plan Discussion on-the alloca- ion for alteration at the city ga- rage and the allocation 'or consultants fees to expand City Hall centered on the lack of an overall program for tion of municipal offices. "What slays me, is that no- body has a plan of where we are Alderman Donald L. Ethier said, "but we are faced with considerable allocations all pertaining to City Hall expan- sion.-" He noted that the budget also contains for the first phase of an air conditioning installation at City Hall and to reno- vate the third floor auditorium into offices. Added to this, he said, was the bond issue resolution-for purchase of the Neverell proper- lies which will be before the al- dermen tonight for afinal vole. "I'm in a tizzy, I just don't know how to vote on Elliier said, explaining there was no plan to follow for the City Hall ex- pansion. Whether the allocation for a con- sultants, fee should be made be- fore a program is solidified or after was another question treat- ed at length.

Sullivan informed them that the proposed expenditure was for al- .eration of the sand bay. This precipitated more discus- sion on the plans for building a new DPW garage proposed in the wst and the lack of planning for immediate future. Sullivan said he did not like to hire consultants but he had in- cluded the for consultants fee because "it always seems to end up that we do get a consult- ant." Questions as to' why the Plan- ning Department could not pre- pare an overall plan for tlie ex- pansion of City Hall triggered a round of discussion oh the under- staffed condition of the city plan- ner's and the city engineer's of- fices and how. each officer is swamped with day-to-day busi- ness. Aldcrman-at-Larg'o Donald H.
