VIET WASHINGTON (UPI) - Congressional Republicans, growing restive with the Johnson administration's war policies, tocV a dim view today of any new U.S. troop buildup in Vietnam. Sen. Clifford P. Case, R-N.J., said in a prepared Senate speech he was opposed to increasing the number of American troops in Vietnam barring "i clear demonstration by our defense experts of an overriding military necessity. "This conclusion is by no means mine alone," Case said. Sen. Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., joined Case in opposing "any new infusion of manpower in order to escalate the struggle beyond the point at which we wage it. "I would not favor any increase which resulted in escalation of the struggle in Vietnam," Javits said Sunday. Case, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the United States must reserve "the right to withdraw from Vietnam" if the Saigon government balks at U.S. policy objectives. Case said there has been talk "in high circles within our government and elsewhere" that the United States mustaccept whatever the South Vietnamese do because "our prestige is already so deeply involved we cannot withdraw." China Proclaims Revolt in Burma The feeling of many members was that Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara would bring back from Vietnam a request for more U.S. troops; that this would trigger a demand from President Johnson for more revenue; and that this in turn would embroil Congress in a late-session wrangle over whether' to raise taxes, cut spending, or both.

Ahead are the most turbulent negotiations in more than two decades and the possibility ot a strike. The union is militant, and is backed by a strike fund that could rmch $65 million before the Sept. 6 expiration of Ihe contracts. Reuther first calls at General Motors to present his "laundry lisl" proposals to GM Vice President Louis G. Seaton and Earl R. Bramblett, the company's chief day-to-day negotiator.
