When the genera! arrived in Vietnam his lask was to straiglilen out the South Vietnamese army. The American commitment then was limited to an advisory role. But a string of Viet Cong wins in the next eight months led Westmoreland to cable Washington that only a large number of American grot/d troops could head off a Communist victory. As more U.S. troops flowed in, the morale and fighting spirit of the Vietnamese army dwindled, and U.S. units quickly assumed the major role in the war by default. Jn the beginning Westmoreland had a blank check for troops, installations and equipment, an aide said. This ended | in 1965 when the general asked for between 100,000 and 200,000 troops. He got 55,000. In February he asked for 200,000 and Washington reports indicate only 35,000 will be approved.

(AP) 'Adopt a cop," a Negr« leader is advising minority groups here. If they do this, says Donald McCullum, "people in the ghetto will begin to see him as a human being charged with doing a job for us." And, said the local president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the policeman "will see us as concerned human beings and not just as crime statistics." He said police should be invited to community meetings and the likes.

Dr. Sumpter M. Riley Jr. was appointed Friday superintendent of the Lima district of the Methodist Church, becoming the first Negro to head a Methodist district in Ohio.

He had been minister of the Cory Methodist Church in Cleveland the last 10 years. (Continued from Page One) I'll remain in my post," If Johnson had promoted Westmoreland to the prestige of chairman of the Joint Chiefs, grounds for regarding Westmoreland's relief as a repudiation would have been virtually nonexistent. But the President implied strongly that Westmoreland wasn't considered for the chair j manship, regarded as the top military position. , Johnson said Westmoreland was considered for the post of commander-in-chief of the entire-Pacific area and for the Army staff chief job—but' the President did not mention Westmoreland in connection with a possible replacement for Wheeler. ••.'.• The President said he had persuaded Wheeler to stay on another year beyond the normal expiration of his four-year hitch on July 2. This meant Johnson hadn't yet found the man he wants in that slot. And Adm. U.S. Grant Sharp, who reaches the mandatory retirement age of 62 next month, will remain in uniform an extra two months, until July 2, to allow time for naming Ms successor. Asked ; whether Westmore- land's relief implies any change in strategy in Vietnam, Johnson replied: "The strategy and the tactical operations have nothing to do with the: appointments as SUCh. '•':. ' ' ..•• "I do not know .at this .time who the commanding general of our troops there will be.

'. Authoritative sources have said there will be a moderate increase and military sources have indicated this; reinforcement may total about 30,000 more men. Commenting on • the Westmoreland shift, Republican presidential hopeful Richard M. Nixon said in Janesville, Wis., the : move is constructive .and appropriate. He called it sound to "take a fresh look" at 'the military situation.. . "I don't see political motives" in Johnson's action, Nixon said. Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey said' in Milwaukee that Westmoreland "is one of our most capable officers." "The general has- been in Vietnam a long time, arid he is being giyen ,«ne ri of the highest positions' in'military service," Humphrey told a news conference.
