U.S. Remains Quiet To De Gaulle s Viet Speech Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News - Friday, September *, U6t- Faff Thm By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States cannot accept timetable for pulling U.S. forces out of Soutli Viel Nam without a corresponding timetable for ending North Viet Nam's drive against the South. vocating a U. S. pullout from Viet Nam. De Gaulle said peace negotiations would have to depend on an advance U.S. commitment to bring Home American troops "within a suitable and definite time limit." And French President Charles I This proposal was branded de Gaulle has apparently failed to get any sign from Hanoi that she would quit her southward push. This assessment has been reached in Washington after a reading of the full text of the here as unrealistic and unacceptable because De Gaulle did not apply it to North Viet Nam, too. And since De Gaulle said the time'is not ripe now for such an outcome and because he said speech De Gaulle delivered in [ France sees no prospect for suc- Cambodia Thursday stating his views on how to try to bring peace to Southeast Asia. The French president was regarded here as having added nothing to his previous policy statements except perhaps in injecting a time element in ad- cess in offering to mediate at the time, it was believed here that he had founil that Hanoi is sticking to a tough line. 'De Gaulle made his Phndm Penh speech, highlighting a three-day visit, after a 35- minute private talk with North Viet Nam's top diplomats at the Cambodian capital. No official account of this meeting has yet reached Washington, reached Washington. The U.S. government Thursday swallowed its displeasure at the anti-American tone of De Gaulle's remarks behind "no comments" at the White House and State Department'. * * * President Johnson and his foreign policy advisers had not yet read the text, it was explained. After the text did become available — none' was supplied bj the French government to U.S. officials — the Johnson administration decided again to shun public comment. However, a State Department spokesman noted that the U.S. government repeatedly has stated — as he put it — "we do not desire to retain U.S. troops in South Viet Nam after peace is assured." And U.S. officials said Hanoi had rebuffed many U.S. efforts for a reciprocal withdrawal or scaling down in the fighting. Privately, it was assumed that De Gaulle was making his trip to revive »'ie French image in the Southeast Asia area and to lay grounds for playing a peacemaking role at such time as a settlement might become possible. However, Washington doubted that with France herself having withdrawn her physical presence from Southeast Asia more than a decade ago, Peking and Hanoi would pay much attention to French words now. And De Gaulle's language did not endear him to the U.S. government, either. Governor Wallace May Get Guidelines Weapon By REX THOMAS MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) —Gov. George Wallace, ben on another challenge of U.S. authority, gets a new weapon from the Alabama Legislature today to defy school integration guidelines. A bill forbidding city and county school boards to make any agreement to comply' with the federal guidelines has gone back to the House for concurrence. The House, where the measure originated, was in recess when the Senate rewrote it In tougher language Wednesday and passed it. Until the Houss reconvenes today to complete legislative action the bill could not be sent to the governor for his certain signature. Final passage of the anti- guidelines measure was expected to bring to a close the six- week-oid special session called to appropriate additional school funds, with no mention at the [outset of the impending new j showdown over desegregation. Still more state funds are appropriated in the new act to reimburse schools for part of the federal money they might lose by refusing to comply with the guidelines. Wallace, who stood in the doorway of the University of Alabama three years ago in a dramatic but unsuccessful attempt to block the enrollment cf two Negro students, chose the federal guidelines for a new confrontation. The guidelines, which have caused considerable controversy in the South, call for speedier integration of faculties and classrooms with an alternative being a loss of federal funds. He contended — and the new state act also says — that the integration rules laid down by the Health, Education and Welfare Department violate federal as well as state law and that HEW has no authority to order BONN, Germany (AP) - Lt. Gen. Johannes Steinhoff, credited with shooting down 167 Allied planes in World War II, today accepted the uneasy command of West Germany's air force. He had hesitated for 10 days. His predecessor, Lt. Gen. Werner Panitzki, quit in a row with defense Minister Ka-Uwe von Hassel over tlie American- designed F104G Starfighter. West German Slaughters have had 62 crashes since they went into service, and there lias been bitter criticism in press and Parliment. S t e i n h o f f 's acceptance strengthened the position of Von Hassel, who is in deep political trouble because two other top generals have also quit, chiefly because Von Hassel authorized union organization of the armed forces. NAHA, Okinawa ,'AP) - Typhoon Alice slammed 140-mile winds into Okinawa today, killing one person and injuring 15 others. To the north, rescuers searched for 26 South Korean fishermen missing at sea. The Koreans disappeared in high seas when 13 fishing boats sank. The bodies of 12 others were recovered. Officials at the Naha airbase said damage to the U.S. base might run into millions of dollars. All aircraft were flown out before the storm hit. The injured included one unidentified American servicemen cut by flying glass. An Okinawan was killed when his house collapsed. AMSTERDAM, The Netherland (AP) — The Dutch Parliament probably will approve a proposal by Premier Jo Cals to double Queen Juliana's salary to five million guilders—?1.4 million—a year. Even opponents are on record as saying she deserves the raise but they claim it is "psychologically inopportune" to grant it during the current drive to cut government spending. Supporters say salaries of the 279 persons directly employed by the queen have tripled since 1961 and she now has a personal payroll of $1.1 million a year. faculty integration or to assign pupils to correct racial imbalance. Critics, including Republican Rep. James D. Martin, have warned that the new act will invite a federal court order to integrate all Alabama schools at one time. Martin is the GOP nominee for governor, running against RIOT (Continued from Page One) workers must travel on their way to work at industrial plants. . ..•:'.'• Some buses carrying white workers were stoned during the course of the day. A trip through the neighborhood showed many stores with smashed windows boarded up. Later the street and adjacent blocks were sealed off but they were expected to be open to work-bound traffic today. There were reports of trouble in the West Side area again Thursday,night but nothing of a serious nature developed, police said. Two Negro juveniles were shot and wounded but police said they were attempting to break into a residence "beyond the riot area." Mayor Hall said he saw "no indicaion of outside agitation" in the disturbances. He said the National Guard would remain in Dayton "as long as we need them."

(AP) No Navy flier should be without | his baby bottle in combat, experts say. It's part of pilots' survival gear. Lt. Cmdr. Robert Brown, I commander of the North Island ! Naval Air Stateion Survival School, said the 8-ounce plastic baby bottle is filled with water. When a pilot is forced down, he would take a few swigs from the bottle to help calm his nerves. "The water helps wash away the stimulus of fear and helps the pilot think rationally," Brown said. BATESVILLE, Ark.
