Page iO THE BATTALION THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1979 Committee: keep troops in Korea United Press International WASHINGTON — American troops would suffer immediate and substantial casualties in war even if President Carter s withdrawal of fighting ground forces from South Korea was already complete, a Se nate group told the president Tues day. we have a chance to complete the overall reassessment” of North ver sus South Korean military strength. Carter’s withdrawal plan calls for leaving U.S. jet fighters and 9,000 airmen as well as 7,000 Army sup port troops, even though he would pull all the ground combat forces out by the end of 1982. The Armed Services Committee met with President Carter, urging him to halt withdrawals because new intelligence judgments indicate North Korea is more powerful than previously thought. The group said the continued mili tary presence as well as thousands of American civilians living in South Korea, would limit U.S. ability to stay out of a war and lead to “im mediate and substantial casualties.” Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., said in a news conference that to go ahead “would decrease deterrence, and any time you decrease deterrence you increase chances of war.” Nunn said U.S. combat forces are needed in South Korea at least “until Nunn said the new intelligence judgments, based on reevaluation of satellite photos, SR71 intelligence plane flights and other data, give North Korea 25 to 30 percent greater military capability than previously believed.

John D. deButts, chairman of American Telephone & Telegraph Co., has been conducting a cam paign for just that. Under deButts’s leadership, the United Way, the league whose name virtually all community funds are known by today, has formulated a national corporate development program aimed at increasing com- DANCE & BEER BUST BAMBOO INN 3 1 A miles W. of Bryan on Hwy. 21 FEATURING “NUTHIN MUCH” BAND, COUNTRY-WESTERN.

Traditionally, the biggest givers to United Way have been working people, through campaigns con ducted in offices and plants. United W'ay figures show the workers still give about 48.7 percent of the money raised; corporations, about 25 per cent. For years the corporate gifts and the contributions of rich individuals were lumped during a local cam paign in “the big gifts division” and this division was run rather haphazardly compared with the care- ful programming of the campaign among the workers. DeButts’s efforts, based on a guideline worked out by a team of Bell System economists, already have succeeded in raising corporate gifts. The formula fills a thick pamphlet, but it works something like this: A company has 43,000 domestic workers. Its average annual wage in 1976 was $10,525. It earned $3,700 per employee before taxes. The for mula produced a contribution guideline factor of $18.75 per em ployee or $806,250, which deButts’s group said this company should do nate to United Way campaigns in the cities where it operated. The con tributions coming from the custom ary campaigns among workers in the company’s factories and offices also were collected as usual. The deButts group already has persuaded 117 companies, many of them on the Fortune 500 list, to adopt the contribution guidelines. The companies also have company wide employee campaign commit ments.
