LBJ Talks Firm on Viet Nam Outlook By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson is talking confidently under a gloomy umbrella. He is more frank about Viet Nam than President John F. Kennedy was and shows nibre realism about it than used to be exhibited by Robert S. Mc. Namara, who is his secretary of defense and was Kennedy's. Although this country pumped billions of dollars in economic and military aid into South Viet Nam under President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Kennedy, that :.country was in danger of being lost to the Communists because the American-backed dictator President Ngo Dinh Diem did not put in the reforms the United States insisted upon. You didn't hear much about it from Kennedy. Apparently he felt that if Diem went, all hope went, until at last he cracked , down shortly before Diem was assassinated. After things picked up. that event Gradually American forces there were built up. McNamara seemed to have such a poor understanding of I static. about 291,000 American troops in South Viet Nam and Westmoreland said more than that will be needed, although he didn't say how many. But he did reveal there are 280,000 enemy Viet Cong In South Viet Nam. The North Vietnamese are sending in more all the time. Astrological k Forecast * w ty CARROLL fo determine your forecast, note paragraph opposite dates, whlcb *nclude your birth date WEDNESDAY GENERAL TENDENCIES: Many fresh new beginnings that can be important, especially in the Near-East countries, can be a great importance in the days ahead even though they take a time to mature and in our individual life we also can place in motion some interesting plans that require modernization of occupations that have become what was happening meanwhile, and of what lay ahead, that as late as 1964 he told Congress even if the war didn't go well ••this country should still with"draw most of its troops by 1965. He said the Vietnamese had the primary responsibility for winning the war, which was true. But that always had been .true. And if the South Vietnam• ese had been left to themselves, the Communists would have overwhelmed them, which was exactly what this country didn't want. 1 And there were McNamara's seemingly endless expeditions to Viet Nam for a look-see and his returns with statements almost always sunny, like "things are progressing very well out there" or "the Vietnamese are on the right track" when, as it turned out, things weren't and the Vietnamese weren't. Over the weekend the American commander in Viet Nam, Gen. William C. Westmoreland, flew to Johnson's Texas ranch and talked with him four hours about problems, present and future. Then the men met with reporters. Then — this was the confident part — Johnson said the Communists will not defeat the American forces in Viet Nam and that a victory for them is not only "improbable" but "impossible." Then he * stood * under this gloomy umbrella: Although he said the Reds can't win, he admitted he doesn't know when they finally will stop trying to. Or, as he put it: "The single most important factor now is our will to prosecute the war until the Communists, recognizing the futility of their ambitions, either end the fighting, or seek a peaceful settlement." And further, because no one can say when the Communists will admit they can't win, no one can say now how many more Americans will be needed in Viet Nam to convince them.

America pro* J&y^ '£•;',;; :: AIIWantDccentMqfe iyail Van S&urtn (McNaafai DEAR ABBY: My brother, who just came back from the navy, told me that he and some of his buddies were sitting around talking about what kind of girls they wanted to marry. And 9 out of 10 men said they wanted "nice, pure" girls. But what puzzles me is this: I just finished my sophomore year at college, and some of us girls were sitting around the sorority house talking about what kind of men. we wanted for husbands, and almost all the girls said they wanted an . ^'experienced" man. This doesn't : add up. Or does it? FRANKLY PUZZLED DEAR PUZZLED: Regardless of what they say, in their hearts, decent men or women prefer other decent men or women when it comes to marriage. "Experience" can mean emotional maturity, proper motivation' and surenets of purpose in a man, and not necessarily "skill thru'practice" in the art of love-making. If it doesn't in this case, then your sorority sisters are talking clinical Gibberish that would puzzle anybody. Including me. DEAR ABBY, My husband is a professional, man and I know that he is attractive. I handle all the social arrangements. My problem .is what to do about women who tele- hone my husband fat his office on the pretense that they can't reach me at home. My husband is a good, trustworthy man and when this happens *he asks me to return the lady's .call, and when I do she .seems so crestfallen. I know- that some women use this foursome get together scheme to get next to somebody else's husband, but how.does a wife combat It? ' • JUST THE WIFE DEAR WIFE: She doesn't. She lets her husband Held the wild ones. . ; DEAR ABBY: How can I make' my older sister realize that she is robbing herself and her husband of the' joys of parenthood? They have been: married for 11 years and are, still childless, altho I know they both love children. I am sure the problem is my sister. She is so modest she won't even have a chest X-ray taken. Shouldn't someone talk to her about it? She is 33 and her husband is 36 and they aren't getting any younger. She keeps saying, "One of these days I may go to a doctor." What do you think? YOUNGER SISTER DEAR SISTER: I think that when your sister becomes sufficiently concerned and eager to have a family, she will go to a doctor with no coaching from the sidelines. . DEAR ABBY: My mother says that you are the one I should write to because if -you put this in your column a lot of people might see it and change their ways. I am 12 years old.
