WILLIAM SENBERG LAKE WORTH - William Senberg, 85, of 3215 Gulf- Johnson, Rusk Confer WASHINGTON (AP) -President Johnson met Monday with Secretary of State Dean Rusk and with the National Security Council, but the White House said no special events required the meetings.

By KEN GREEN Staff Writer Pop singer and television personality Perry Como dropped his musical pursuits Monday, if only momentarily, as he disputed the purchase price of his Tequesta winter home in Circuit Court. Como sat passively beside his attorney, Phil O'Connell, as he listened to builder Hank Keene claim he still owed him $53,760 on $356,000 home. Keene of El Portal Drive, Tequesta, contends in a civil action the singer has failed to make the payment since completion of the residence on Feb. 15, 1967. Como, in a counterclaim, contends he was intentionally deceived by the builder into thinking the home could be constructed for $150,000 and that Keene failed to follow the prescribed plans, resulting in unnecessary changes and additional expenses. "The architect wrote the music and I decided to play the tune," Keene testified as he defended his price. He said changes were constantly made during the one year and 10-month construction period, but by Perry's wife, Roselle, and the architect. Keene denied that Como had made up to 40 calls complaining that workmen were not on the job or that work was not progressing rapidly enough. "There wasn't any hold up on our part," he said. The builder testified that when he began construction it had not been his understanding to construct the home in the $150,000 range. But Keene admitted Como was visibly upset six months after the house had been started when told it might cost up to $285,000. The builder claimed the contract called for construction at cost plus 10 per cent contractor fees and 5 per cent overhead. CHINCH BUGS?
