NEWARK, OHIO, MONDAY, MARCH 8, 1965 AMERICAN TRIBUNE 28 PAGES 7 CENTS Johnson Asks Congress: no arm San Mai fire WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson asked Congress today to ban sale of mail order firearms, tighten controls over drugs, and strengthen safety in the streets as part of an attack on crime as a national problem. "Crime will not wait while we pull it up by the roots," Johnson 6aid in a special message to the House and Senate. "We must arrest and reverse the trend toward lawlessness." Various bills will be submitted to carry out this idea, some of them still in a vague stage. For example, the presidential message made no reference to legalizing wire tapping in some instances, although this could be wrapped into legislation the Justice Department will lay before the lawmakers. But Johnson said that he is proposing legislation to prohibit shipments of firearms in interstate commerce except among importers, manufacturers and dealers licensed by the Treasury Department. "Mail order sales to. individuals would thus stop," Johnson said. It was a mail order rifle which assassin Lee Harvey Oswald used to strike down President John F. Kennedy. In the field of drug control, Johnson proposed that Congress regulate the use of sedatives and stimulants he called them dangerous drugs without impeding their medical use legitimately. "Senseless killings, robberies. and auto accidents have resulted from the radical personality changes induced by the indiscriminate use of these drugs," Johnson said. As for narcotics users, Johnson emphasized efforts to restore them to a productive role in society. He endorsed a proposed law, to be submitted shortly by the Justice Department, for a fed eral civil commitment procedure for users likely to respond to treatment and become re habilitated. And he proposed giving offenders a maximum opportunity for return to a normal life. The President said he also will be passing along to Congress a proposal to soften requirements for mandatory minimum penalties when sentences are imposed. In broad terms, Johnson recognized that combatting crime is, in many instances, a state and local responsibility. But he also recognized that there is room for federal activity and assistance. Many of the President's rec ommendations were in keeping with what he had said on this issue during last year's presidential campaign and in his State of the Union message to Congress. "Our system," Johnson said, "rejects the concept of a national police force. The protection responsibilities lie primarily with state and local govern ments. Yet, crime is no longer King Bloody Undaunted By ama Melee merely a local problem. He said steps have been taken in response to a growing concern about crime, but the crime rate increases and the time has come to check it. "I believe the way to do so," he said, "is to give new recognition to the fact that crime is a national problem and to in tensify our crime prevention and crime-fighting at all levels of government." Taxi War May Be Brewing The first chapter of what may turn into a battle between taxi companies began in municipal court this morning when Robert Isner, Heath Cab Company owner, filed charges against the Yellow Cab Company, Newark. Isner charged Josie and Ralph Montanaro and Robert Wenzel, co-owners of Yellow Cab, 42 S. 2nd St., with picking up a passenger and doing business in Heath Village. Yellow Cab has been denied a franchise to do business other than drop passengers in Heath by the village council.

Ruby Granted Sanity Trial; Set March 29 DALLAS, Tex. liP District Judge Joe B.

But until now there had been no American ground combat formations in South Viet Nam. A direct clash with U.S. Marine units could result if the Red Viet Cong should try to attack the vital air and naval base on the A major fight also could develop if Marine patrols make contact with guerrillas operating around the base area. The Marines are likely to establish a defense perimeter with outposts, radio communications, and patrols roving the area. Some of the Marine patrols are likely to reconnoiter beyond their defense perimeter and, in doing so, could get into shooting scrapes with the Viet Cong. If a major U.S.-Communist ground clash should flare, it would carry with it both an op portunity and a danger. The opportunity: To deal a sharp and telling blow to the Viet Cong and to demonstrate to the Communists the risks they face if the United States should broaden its ground-war involve ment. It may be that the landing of the Marine battalions is one more U.S. signal designed to tell Red North Viet Nam and Red China that this country is determined to keep South Viet Nam free. The danger: If the Marines should suffer a setback, US, prestige would be damaged throughout Southeast Asia and elsewhere. month-long murder trial which ended in the death verdict for Ruby March 14, 1964, said a jury will be empaneled to de termine the sanity of the man who killed presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Judge Brown said after to day's 30-minute hearing that hej was granting the motion for a sanity trial "to comply with orders of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals." Ruby was well-dressed in a dark blue suit and appeared in relatively good health at today's hearing. "Hi, how are you," Ruby said to a newsman as deputies esocrted him into the courtroom. His cheeks had color and he seemed to have earned some weight since his last public appearance. Ruby, a former night spot op erator whose 54th birthday is March 25, has not been outside the Dallas County Jail for more than 10 months. He was convicted last March 14 for the slaying of Oswald. It took place in the Dallas City Hall basement Nov. 24, 1963, two days after the assassination of President Kennedy. Oswald was being moved from the city to county jail. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, highest tribunal in the state on noncivu matters, issued instructions two weeks ago for Brown to find out whether Ruby is sane. It deferred hearing ar guments on an appeal of his conviction until this information is provided by the trial judge. Defense counsel has contended Ruby's mental condition has deteriorated during his stay behind bars. Dist. Atty. Henry Wade has said his staff will argue Ruby is sane. U.S. Guarding Russian Embassy After Attacks WASHINGTON (AP) - Extra police have been stationed around the Soviet Embassy after five anti-Castro Cubans splattered black liquid on it in a surprise bottle-hurling pro test. The Cubans were arrested promptly charged with interfering with the property of a for eign government and jailed overnight. They said they were protesting last week's violent student demonstration against the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and also the continued presence of Soviet troops in Cuba. The State Department reported that a telephone call of pro test had been received from the Russian. The official who received the call expressed the department's regret at Sunday's incident. It was understood that the subject of compensation had not been discussed in this initial exchange, said to have been at a relatively low diplomatic level. Last Thursday hundreds of screaming Red Chinese, Viet namese and African students stoned and splattered ink on the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Red army reinforcements were required to quell the disorder aft er the demonstrators had beat en back poice and scuffled with soldiers. American diplomats, who have contended that the Soviet government provides insufficient protection for the U.S. I building, filed a protest. The Soviet government apologized and promised compensation. U.S. officials pointed out recently that no such demonstrations are permitted here. District of Columbia law forbids demonstrations within 500 feet of an embassy. A three-man detachment of police had been assigned to the' Soviet Embassy here since last Thursday. The five men arrested were Castro Cubans who came here from the New York metropolitan area to picket the embassy.

The Marine deployment brought blasts from the Red Chinese and the left wing of Britain's Labor party. Konni Zilliacus, a Laborite member of Parliament, said the landings amounted to "systematic and deliberate escalation... straight international aggression and nothing else." He said the U.S. action could touch off another Korean War or possibly a world confict. Peking's official New China News Agency said a few thousand Marines "can in no way retrieve the United States from its desperate predicament on the South Viet Nam batUefield." The U. S. Marines landed by sea and air in South Viet Nam today to strengthen the defense of the key Da Nang air base against attack by the Communist Viet Cong. One battalion of 1,400 Marines came ashore from four 7th Fleet transport ships standing half a mile off the coast 380 miles north of Saigon. See MARINES, page 14 3 Yanks Wounded In Battle SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Heavy fighting broke out in Binh Dinh province 265 miles northeast of Saigon before dawn today and at least 33 government troops were killed. Three U.S. Army men were wounded, one of them seriously. Twenty-four Vietnamese troops were reported wounded. Reports indicated 57 Viet Cong bodies had been found on the field and that a substantial quantity of enemy equipment had been captured. The fight began when some 400 Viet Cong attacked a Special Forces camp with mortars, re-coilless rifles and small arms. Government planes droDoed flares to light up the area all night for the defending forces and planes. Most of the enemy dead were found entangled in the barbed wire around the camp. The Viet Cong apparently broke off the fight shortly after sunrise, but sporadic fighting continued all day. Scattered cashes were re ported throughout most of the rest of the country, including one five miles from Saigon Sunday night. In that engagement, about 20 Viet Cong overran a hamlet after the defenders were forced to withdraw. The Viet Cong later also withdrew.
