Courier Wewi - Tueidty, Junt », 19M- f»» 8evt» US Troops Home Going By ROBERT BERRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) - A battalion of U.S. paratroopers begins boarding ships today to start the withdrawal of the 8,000-man Inter-American Peace Force from the Dominican Republic. The artillery battalion from •he 82nd Airborne Division— about 1,100 men—is expected to take two days to embark. The States voted last week to withdraw the entire six-nation cen- tingent within 90 days. The force was created by the OAS to help restore stability and constitutional government in the wake of a Dominican civil w»r that began in April 1965. The vote for withdrawal followed the election of Joaquin Balaguer as president in the June 1 general election. Balaguer Is to be Inaugurated Friday. The United Stales has 6,800 men In the force. The rest are from Paraguay, Nicaragua, Honduras Costa Rica and Brazil. The evacuation was to begin from Red Beach, a palm-fringed cove about 10 miles west of Santo Dominga where 400 U.S. Marines made the first U.S. landing after the outbreak of the fighting April 28, 1965. President Johnson ordered the tjvg during Marines in to protect American i Domin j can lives and property. He later charged Communists had taken over the revolt and ordered the Marines reinforced "to help prevent wether Communist (state in this hemisphere." U.S. troop strength reached its peak May 15, 1965, when 22,500 men were stationed on Dominican soil and another 8,000 in Navy craft offshore. The force later was put under the OAS flag, and U.S. strength was reduced gradually as contingents from other countries arrived. The force kept the warring, factions in check while OAS mediators helped negotiate the installation of a provisional government. The government of Provisional President Hector Garcia-Go doy reportedly faces an unresolved protocol problem connected with Vice President Hubert H. Humphreys planned attendance at the inauguration. Dominican officials want Dominican insignia painted on the U.S. helicopter that will bring Humphrey from the airport to Santo Domingo. Protocol demands a Dominican craft be used but the country does not have a helicopter available. U.S. officials reportedly rejected the request but have asked Washington for a final decision. U.S. securily officials insist Humphrey use the helicopter instead of making the 16-mile journey by motorcade.

Their latest approach of accusing President Johnson of not telling the American public the whole truth about what is happening in Southeast Asia could reflect the mixed opinion campaigners of both parties have found among the voters. Several senators who have been out on the hustings recently have come back with the general opinion that their people are greatly disturbed about the war but don't want it broadened and dont want the United Sates to get out. Their findings do no seem to support the view attributed to Johnson that the hawks - those who want te war acceleraed — are growing in number. In criticizing the President Monday for not telling all about Viet Nam, the Republican Policy Coordinating Committee failed to renew its proposal of last December (or a 'Kennedy- type" of quarantine against North Viet Nam's principal port of Haiphong.

Daily Record Supreme Court Edict Traps Its Key Figure By JAMES MARLOW "AP News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - At 26 Ernesto Miranda is in a box — one of the strangest in America history. He won a landmark decision from the Supreme Court but, as a by-product of his victory, faces 20 years in jail. He will stay there unless the court can be persuaded to consider his case again. But, if it does, this will be the first time the court ever encountered a problem like Miranda's. His is not a pretty story but here it is step by step. In 1963 he was arrested in his Phoenix, Ariz., home, taken to a police lineup, and there identified as the man who had committed two crimes eight months apart, a rape and a robbery. Police then questioned him in a private room for about two hours. In Kiat time written confessions crimes.

It might have seemed logical to assume that now his lawyers could appeal that its June 13 ruling would not his robbery conviction and ex pect the court automatically to throw that one out, too, and for the same reason: That the confessions to the rape and robbery, although separate, had been made under identical circumstances in the same two hours of questioning which the court, in the rapt case, had decided violated his rights.

But After Dodd Denial Committee Quits along with the recent advocacy by Gov. George Romney of Michigan for bombing of oil depots in the Haiphong area. Romney perhaps would become a contender for the 1968 GOP presidential nomination if he wins re-election in Michigan. Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen who generally has supported Johnson's Viet Nam course, announced the coordinating group's finding that "it is time that the President and the administration tell the American people the whole truth" about Viet Nam. Dirksen said he had heard some things during a recent White House briefing of leadegs of both parties that he thought could be told to te public. But he wouldn't tell what they were because he said he couldn't violate a pledge ot secrecy. "We try to be circumspect," Dirksen said. "We don't demean the commander in chief and President of the United States before the whole world." As for the war, Dirksen Mid "we are all working for the same boss and for the same ostensible goal - to get this thing over with on an honorable ba- ite." U.S. intelligence men attributed the lagging morale to the success of spoiling operations conceived by the allied command to keep the enemy off balance, the persistent bombardment of enemy strongholds, including raids by the huge Guam-based B52 bombers, and seizures of Communist food and supply caches during allied sweeps. A U.S. intelligence officer cited the case of a North Vietnamese company commander who surrendered to the U.S. 1st Cavalry, Airmobile Division during operation Nathan Hale, last week after his men took a severe pounding. "He was scared to death when he came in," said the officer. "He wanted to go home. He made recordings for us calling for his troops to give up." Anxious to reap the benefits of any sag in enemy morale, Gen. William C. Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Viet Nam, has ordered psychological warfare stepped up to encourage the Communists 10 give up. He is particularly eager to overcome the "Communist fiction" that captives will be killed or ill- treated by the Americans. While U.S. military operations continued, the Viet Cong struck back by exploding a mine in a restaurant in the Saigon suburb of Binh Duong, 12 miles north of the capital. Two Vietnamese civilians were killed and 12 injured when the bomb went ofl during the lunch hour. The ter rorist escaped on foot.

The police admitted he had not been told he could have a lawyer before they questioned him at all. And had the police clearly told him he didn't have o answer any question?

Dodd testify he went to West Germany in 1964 on official Senate business — not in behalf of a lobbyist friend. The committee's hearings into charges against Dodd of misconduct in office are expected to resume after July 15. The white-haired Connecticut Democrat told the committee Monday he made the 1964 trip "for the sole purpose of looking into the Stashinsky case" — the case of a Soviet agent imprisoned in West Germany for the killings of two Ukrainians. But Dodd also said he was "perfectly willing" to help his friend Julius Klein just as he would anyone else he felt had is to testify. But chairman John C.

Dodd testified that as vice chairman of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee he made the six-day trip in April 1964 to gather more information about the case of Bogdan Stashinsky because of his long and deep interest in "the Soviet terror apparatus." Earlier in the hearings James P. Boyd Jr., Dodd's former administrative assistant, said he regarded this "as a cover up and no more." Boyd swore that Dodd has told him his purpose was to help Klein, that "Julius has been pressing me would be all right for him to be away for a week or so. He testified that he had been trying to arrange an interview with Stashinsky for several months »nd felt that the time of his trip was as convenient as any could be.
