President To Press War In Viet Nam By STEWART HENSLEY WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson, determined to press the anti-Communist war in Viet Nam with "increased efficiency," climaxes his strat ;gy talks with Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor today at a National Security Council session. The 'President has ruled out any overly "dramatic" moves .or the time being, although reserving full freedom of action to meet anything which may develop. His primary emphasis is on more effective use of manpower and military equipment already in the field. But some additional war material for U.S. forces and economic aid for the South Vietnamese will be sent. Taylor - was meeting this morning with congressional military and foreign policy groups prior to the White House conference. .. ' Busy Schedule His schedule called for him to deliver a first-hand report on the Viet Nam war to a joint session of the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees and then repeat the performance for the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services Committees. Present plans call for Taylor to return to his bomb-scarred embassy in Saigon early next week. The President conferred for about .two hours late Thursday with Taylor, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Defense Secretary Robert S. -McNaraara, Director John A. McCone of the Central Intelligence Agency and other top aides. Just prior to the meeting, Johnson told a hastily called news conference that he had detected no signs the Communists were willing to "negotiate under conditions that would be ^effective." Continue to Help Therefore, he declared, the ,United States must, continue to help South Viet*Nam press the anti-Communist struggle with increased vigor to prevent "that little nation from being; swallowed up by aggressors." Earlier in the day Rusk had received an obviously unacceptable appeal from 17 "neutralist" nations for immediate peace talks "without prior conditions." He promised to "study" it and reply. He did not' immediately reject" it, but restated U.S. demands that the communists "end their aggression" before there. is any consideration of negotiations.

Negroes Planning* New March In Camden, Alabama CAMDEN, Ala. (UPI) — Negro demonstrators today planned their fifth attempt in three days to march on the town square, Mayor Reginald Albritton and his "rescue squad" were expected to block their way again. Negro leaders said no effort would be made to get-past any barriers thrown up by Albritton, who used smoke bombs to turn back one march Wednesday. Daniel Harrell, a field secretary for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), said he hoped more Negro adults would participate in the march protesting voter registration procedures in Wilcox County. The marchers' goal is the courthouse on the town square. 'We haven't had many adults in our marches (because) most of the men are.out plowing the fields now," Harrell said. Albritton and his deputies, armed with clubs, guns and tear gas, confronted more than 100 Negroes Thursday and the marchers turned around after a 25-minute debate with the mayor about voting procedures. Later, Albritton turned back about 100 Negro high school students who made a halfhearted march toward the town. Albritton told the first group of marchers that "if you want to vote, come down Monday when the registrar's office is open, but don't come into the city like a herd of cattle."

France, Britain Open Talks On Chilled Relations •PARIS (UPI) — President Charles de Gaulle and British Prime Minister Harold Wilson opened diplomatic talks today aimed at improving chilly relations between the two countries. British sources said there was a "relaxed and friendly" atmosphere. It-was-the first meeting between British and French lead ers since De Gaulle vetoed British membership in the European Common Market in 1963. The last such Anglo- French meeting was in 1962 when the old "entente cordiale" was beginning to fade. In their two hour meeting today with only interpreters present they discussed a broad field of problems including East- West relations, NATO and the Middle East and Africa. British sources said they concentrated on matters on which there is "possibility of constructive cooperation."' This apparently meant they held back for the time being from discussion of the Viet Nam crisis and other troublesome problems. However, the British sources said Wilson and De Gaulle "did not-gloss over differences." The two leaders were meeting without any fixed program or agenda. Wilson was accompanied by British Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart, who met French- Foreign Minister Maurice Couve de Murville while Wilson talked to De Gaulle. De Gaulle was expected to argue that the Common Market crisis resulting from his blackballing Britain from membership now has subsided and that the two countries should seek to put their relations on a friendlier working basis in- every field. But the 'two leaders faced a formidable number of disagreements on such questions as the Common Market, relations with the United States, NATO, the gold standard and Southeast Asia.

Johnson Digs Deep To Pay Income Tax United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — With that April 15 day of judgment approaching. President Johnson has had to dig just as deep as millions of other Americans to pay this year's tax' bill. In an off-hand remark at a White House ceremony Thurs lay, Johnson disclosed that he recently borrowed money to pay his taxes. "This year," the President said with a smile, "I borrowed 'he money the other day to pay h» government a tax of S100.- 000. •"They have a procedure where they pay it to the President with th • >fft hnni and take it out with th? right." The chief executive apparently was referring to his basic vearly salary, which totals $100,000 without expense allowances. At a later news conference. Johnson said he had a tax bill of about $100,000 which he owed on 1S64 income and on his first quarterly tax estimated for 1965, due by April 15. Not Enough Withheld The President indicated that not enough money was withheld from his paycheck to cover taxes. "A good deal (of tax) was deducted in your check that comes to you each month," he said. For the remaining taxes, Johnson said, "I borrowed a portion of it and had a portion of it." The President's joking comments on hjs taxes pointed up a nationwide problem. Because of under.--withholding by the government last year, many taxpayers are finding themselves farther in- the hole on their income taxes than ever before. The Treasury claims that reports of under-withholding are greatly exaggerated.- But the problem is serious enough for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to consider ways of helping taxpayers who did not have enough taken out of their pay last year. Reason For Dilemma The main reason why withholding did not take as much as usual out of paychecks last year was the $11.5 billion tax cu;. Congress put the cut into effect over a two-year period, dropping withholding from 18 to 14 per cent the first year. But the actual tax was reduced to only 16 per cent the first year with the rest of the cut to come the second year. The result was that many persons who were not aware.of the mechanics of the tax cut got caught up short when they* figured out their income tax. There are no figures available, but President Johnson is expected to have a lot of company among taxpayers who are borrowing money to pay their taxes. In Johnson's case, however, '.he pinch is not quite as tight as it seems. In addition to his basic salary, he receives a (Continued on page 6) Launches Double Airborne Attack Against Viet Cong Mother of Frieda O'Banion Dies Mrs. Mary Jane O'Banion, 86, succumbed at 7:10 p.m. Thursday- at her home at 2C5 N.

(UPI) — Reward money for Birmong- ham's bomber "tiend" rose to $50,000 today and police rode the streets in unmarked cars on guard against new outbreaks in a wave of terror. A bomb blast Thursday broke the pre-dawn silence .near the city's, ''dynamite hill" and injured a 13-year-old Negro boy. Two time bombs' were found later ticking away at the homes of Mayor Albert Boutwell and :ity councilwoman Nina Migli- inico but were-disarmed before they exploded. -They were the eighth and ninth unexploded time-bombs found in the city within, the past 11 days. Inspects Damage Gov. George C. Wallace flew fnto Birmingham 'Thursday for a personal inspection of the lamage at the home of Negro nublic accountant T. L. Crowell whose son, Weymouth, received a cut on one of his hands from "lying debris when the bomb 2xpIoded in a garage at the rear of the residence. Wallace called the homing the work of a "fiend!" "We hope to impress upon the people doing this they might get caught. . ..that they're going to get caught.,, .they're bound to get caught," Wallace said. "I appeal to anyone who has knowledge of this to come tc the police. If you want to heir your .state, your country, your governor, this city, then I urge you to come forward." .

MALLOY United Press international SAIGON (UPI)-The government shattered the week-1 o n g lull in the South Vietnamese war with a double airborne offensive that intlicted major defeats on the Viet Cong, a military spokesman said today. The actions cost 29 American casualties and five helicopters shot down. U.S. helicopters flew Vietnamese troops into an area about 30 miles from the big U.S. air base at Da Nang, 300 miles north of Saigon in one action and into a guerrilla-infested area 20 miles to the west of Saigon, in the second. Surprise was achieved in both attacks and the Reds suffered heavy casualties. A spokesman for U.S. military headquarters said Vietnamese and American military estimates placed the number of Communist dead at 323. Normally the number of wounded would run double or triple that amount, perhaps as many as 00.'. Government losses were reported 181 kilted, wounded, missing or captured. In the past Viet Cong intelligence has learned in advance of such large scale operations and the guerrillas have fled into the jungles before the operation could be mounted. This time they were caught and had to stand and fight. Large Scale Battles The large scale battlesin Hau Nghia Province near Saigon and Quang Tin Province were the first in more than two weeks—guerrilla attacks slackened noticeably after the start of air attacks against the north. American military officials judged it significant that the lull was broken by "government-initiated actions" rather than V'iet Cong assults. While South Viet Nam was mounting the twin offensives. President Johnson was meeting with Ambassador .Maxwell D. Taylor in a National Security Council, session in Washington with new determination to press (he war against the Viet Cong. Washington dispatches said Johnson's • primary emphasis ivas on more effective use of manpower and military equipment already in the field rather :han some overly dramatic moves for the time being. The actions reported today appeared to be evidence of this. Peace Moves Reported With the war tempo increasing in Viet Nam, new peace moves reported around the vorld. The latest report came rom London and said Britain "iad asked a dozen.nations for suggestions on approaches to peace in Viet Nam "m view of the "dangerous . . . internation- i\ tension now existing." Moscow still had made no di- •ect threats but its news media vas keeping up a steady stream •f anti-American propaganda. The latest in the army newspa- ier Red Star today said the ise of "poison gas" was a prep- iration for the introduction of even more horrible war tactics.
