Fulbright d ark., in referring to the 1964 legislation that opened the Way to escalation of the Vietnam War. Fulbright. Chairman of the foreign relations committee teamed with sen Mike gravel Dalaska tuesday to Block action on a 1560-million foreign Aid Bill despite a set of tight restrictions on 255 million earmarked for Cambodia. Neither senator would indicate when be might permit a vote. But Senate democratic Leader Mike Mansfield set aside some time today for continued debate before calling up an appropriation measure containing funds for the supersonic transport plane.

Forces from Southeast Asia or to Aid in the release of americans held Pris Oner of War a the restraints in the Aid Bill approved monday by the foreign relations committee include a prohibition against ground combat troops and advisers in Cambodia.

Polish Crews rioting 4.5 percent reasonable a full employment still Means some jobless an. A news analysis by Sterling f. Green associated press writer Washington a the term a full employment is. In Vogue with today a economic Sears and policymakers. But the magic words done to always mean what they seem to say. For example an avowed goal of president Nixon a economic policy is full employment by mid-1972. Yet some of his advisers admit they a be reasonably Happy if by that time there were a Many a 3.5 million men. And women still looking for jobs. And the president wants to balance the a full employment budget for fiscal 1972, starting next july 1. He May do that but be could still have a real financial deficit of $1.6 or $12 billion. What does full employment mean then in customary Washington usage nowadays it Means getting unemployment Down to about 4 per cent of the labor Force. That would still leave at least 3.3 million people Paul w. Mccracken chairman 0� the presidents Council of economic advisers told questioners he thinks of 4 per cent As Quot the midpoint of a full employment other knowledge that anything 4.5 per cent and maybe a Little More would be a reasonable goal for mid-1972 and that would represent a a Olid gain because Many expect the rate to climb above 6 per cent in 1971 before it starts Down. Few think it will get As Low a 5 per cent anytime next year. The term full employment became embedded in the language during the great depression of the 1930s, when it was a pie in the sky target of the Roosevelt new Deal. The definition was vague but it was achieved in world War ii. Over achieved in fact because the wartime labor shortage was As acute As the tire or meat shortage. R in Many respects the country a War production Effort was limited by Lack of labor. Even so there was still 1.2 per cent unemployment to 1944, the year of Peak Home front Effort this was Leas than what the experts Call Normal a a frictional unemployment. Frictional unemployment represents newcomers to the labor Force who Haven to yet found work workers who quit to Hunt another Job some who were Laid off but Hope to be called Back others who Are Idle because of weather or who Are waiting for a Call to work from a Cannery lumber Mill or other seasonal or sporadic employer.
