Page 4 College Station, Texas Friday, May 1, 1970 THE BATTALION _ U.S. Assaults Essential, Nixon Says (Continued from page 1) relations with the United States will be doing so on its own re sponsibility and at its initiative and we will draw the appropri ate conclusions.” Congressional leaders were briefed by the President and some Cabinet members immediately before the speech. There was no evidence they had been consulted before the decision was made. Nor was there any evidence that U.S. allies, other than South Vietnam, had been consulted. In formed officials said Premier Lon Nol of Cambodia, who had asked Nixon for arms and military sup plies, had not asked for U.S. troops. In fact, Cambodian offi cials said the U.S. action would be protested. Nixon’s decision drew immedi ate fire from Senate advocates of disengagement from the war and from foes of any expansion in such criticism as “unbeliev able,” “reckless” and “sad.” But Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania call ed on the nation to “trust the President who alone has all the facts.” The President announced his fateful decision in these words: “In cooperation with the armed forces of South Vietnam, attacks are being launched this week to clean out major enemy sanctu aries on the Cambodian-Vietnam border.” The first attack started and had already been announced Wed nesday. It was an offensive by South Vietnamese forces, with U.S. air and logistical support and about 100 American advisers, into a projection of Cambodian territory, known as “the Parrot’s Beak,” that reaches to about 35 miles from Saigon. It was the second attack Nix on announced as starting Thurs day night, Washington time, which carried the wallop of mas sive surprise. None of the advance hints about his speech, even from military sources, had envisioned a decision to send U.S. ground troops across the Cambodian border. But Nixon said he had con cluded a combined American- South Vietnamese operation was necessary. Panel to Present Drug Abuse Talks Yarbor ough-Bentsen (Continued from Page 1) Both candidates have filed counter-complaints with the Fair Campaign Practices Committee in Washington, D.C., on several counts of unfair tactics. Yarborough claims that two television spots, “Violence 30” and “Violence 60”, falsify, misrepre sent and distort his position on the presidential candidacy of Sen. McCarthy and his stand on the moratorium last fall. Bentsen replied that the tapes refer to Yarborough’s endorsement of McCarthy’s candidacy and of the moratorium which are “undisputed facts.” Bentsen also claims that Yarborough has made personal attacks on Bentsen’s family and referred to him as “an insurance promoter who bilks the public,” a “tax dodger,” and a “war profiteer.” He said that these are inflammatory charges with no basis in Fact. Whoever wins will face another tough battle with the winner of the Republican primary, either George Bush or Robert Morris, in the November general election. The G.O.P. has designated Yarborough’s seat as one of the nation’s 12 most vulnerable. A panel discussion of drugs and drug abuse will be conducted for Bryan-College Station families at 8 p. m. Monday in the A&M Consolidated High School audi torium. The presentation, part of “Operation Drug Alert,” is spon sored by the College Station Ki- wanis Club in conjunction with the Bryan-College Station Toast master Club. Panelists include Dr. T. T. Wal ton Jr., local physician; John Godfrey, Brazos County proba tion officer; Gerry Geistweidt, president of the Texas A&M Uni versity student body and mem ber of the statewide Crime and Narcotics Advisory Commission. The panel will be moderated by Gene Sutphen. Walter H. Parsons Jr. of the Kiwanis Club said “Operation Drug Alert” “has inspired the Kiwanis Club as no single pro gram has in the past.” The club has mailed a booklet entitled “Deciding About Drugs” to 1,100 local parents. Parsons said the publication is being furnished in hopes that parents will take time to learn more about the problems that confront their children. He emphasized the 50-minute panel program Monday is de signed for the entire family. “Tonight, American and South Vietnamese units will attack the headquarters for the entire Com munist military operation in South Vietnam. This key control center has been occupied by the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong for years in blatant violation of Cambodia’s neutrality.” “This is not an invasion of Cambodia,” Nixon said in appar ent anticipation of dispute over whether he was violating Cam bodia’s territory and neutrality. “The areas in which these at tacks will be launched are com pletely occupied and controlled by North Vietnamese forces. Our purpose is not to occupy the areas. . . .” A White House official said the offensive had been under con sideration for about 10 days. Mil itary necessity was advanced as one reason why the President kept the consideration secret. Nixon said he had three op tions in dealing with the new sit. nation in Cambodia and the Co®, munist troop buildup. One was to do nothing, whitl he said would have jeopard®: American troops remaining fc South Vietnam after the nes withdrawal. The second choice was to gin massive aid to Lon Nol’s araj, but he said the Cambodians coili not use it quickly and effectivtlj, But he announced that togetfo with other nations he did m name the U.S. would supply snal] arms, and other equipment wiiiti “the Cambodian army needs ani can use now for its defense.” “Our third choice is togoti the heart of the trouble,” Nim said. “That means cleansing major North Vietnamese and Vis Cong occupied sanctuaries whitl serve as bases for attacks both Cambodia and American as!
