6 TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 1964, Loke Chorlcs American Pr|s» LBJ Says Southeast Asia Future at Stake KG Officials Elected*! '•' 'a ' r> .. I Teachers Ignore Plea, M I t's Seek Pay Boost Now WASHINGTON (AP) ~ President Johnson said today the aim of Honolulu talks on southeast Asia is to promote the "efficiency and effectiveness" of American moves to stem the Communist tide in that parl of the world. Johnso;i said the future of all of southeast Asia is at stake in Laos and South Viet Nam. It is not just jungle warfare but a struggle for freedom on all fronts, he said in a statement read to a news conference. It was the President's first meeting with reporters since May 9. Citing peace as the aim of American policy, Johnson said the United States will "keep its word" to help the people of South Viet Nam maintain their freedom. In this connection, he read a letter which former President Dwight D. Eisenhower sent to the president of South Viet Nam in 1954 spelling out American policy. "It was a good letter then and Us a good letter now." he said. Johnson, who met witli sonic 25 reporters in h i s office, declined to be drawn into any extended discussion of southeast Asian problems. He said lie thought that should await cd>m- plction of the Honolulu talks' by top military, diplomatic and intelligence officials. However, when Johnson Was asked about a weekend statement by Hep. Melvin R. Laiircl, H-Wi.s., that the American government has laid plans for tarrying the Vietnamese war into the northern part of that d>un- try, Johnson replied: "I know of no plans that Have been made." On other topics, Johnson: —Emphasized that the Urlited Stains intends to maintain aerial surveillance of Cuba, although lie left open the possibility that reconnaissance trieth- ods might be revised from time to time. —When asked to comment on the possibility that Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy might seek the Democratic Senate nomination in New York, said Dial's a matter for Kennedy and the people of New York to decide. —Declared that the economy is responding well to the 1964 tax cut. and that the January forecast of a $623 billion national output this year will be Additional Deputy Sought in Parish A resolution asking support for a bill in the legislature which would permit appointment of an additional Ward 4 deputy marshal was approved today by the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury. The resolution stipulates the jury will support the bill if the maximum salary for the deputy is $1,800 and the jury will pay only half the salary. An assistant deputy was appointed in the past for the West Lake area. It was reported that the new deputy will assist particularly in the Carlyss community. The jury voted to send a get well cart to Ward 5 member Johnny Miller who is in the hospital. Rex Smelser, director of Sowela Technical Institute, presented J. W. (Bill) Rosteet, jury president, with a gavel and board at the meeting. Both were made at the local institute, Smelser said. He added that similar gavels are presented to state and national officials. The jury deferred action for 30 days on a rezoning case in Ward 4. McLemore Lumber Co. has asked that its property be rezoned to help business expansion. Re-investment of $200,000 of parish surplus in short term notes was also approved. Lloyd Bordelon, associate County agent, presented each juror with a copy of "Louisiana, a Lucrative land." The brochure is printed in connection with the Louisiana County Agents Association. It contains information and pictures of Louisiana industry and agriculture. "This is one of the first things we've gotten free in many years and I know the jurors will appreciate it." Tom Watson of Ward 3 said. I. T. Tritico, a member of the Ward 3 Planning Commission, spoke to the jurors on attendance and membership on zoning boards. "Members should accept their commissions and play their part on these boards," he said. Tritico also said progress is being made on a mental retardation training school at the former Chennault Ah- Force Base. "We have the money and the facilities for the center," he added. A request for mobile telephones for two parish coroner automobiles was taken under advisement by the jury. The jury rejected bids taken Monday for installation of sewerage lines in two blocks of Greinwich Terrace. It decided to study the matter before any action is taken. A number of legal and other questions were involved. Rules and regulations for the Lake Charles Municipal Airport were adopted. The jury voted to ask the state highway department to blacktop East McNeese Street adjacent to Louisiana 14 and to expedite surfacing of the Old Town (Green Acres) Road. ; Rights to a shell bank at the '' site of the proposed industrial I canal were waived by the jury. !The rights were given in 19l9 i and are presently holding up canal progress. : In order that the Intracoastal Canal might be slightly deep: ened, the jury voted to "ask the : federal government to pay for relocation of pipelines and similar structures. I Parishes will acquire neces- I sary rights-of-way, but tn,e struc- j ture removal is holding up the jplan, according to Rodqey Vin' cent, parish engineer. The Louisiana Intracoastal Seaway Association is also sponsoring a similar move. The jury voted to ask the 13 Southwest Louisiana parishes to support a legislative bill asking for funds for the Southwest Dis- I trict Fat Stock Show he)d annually at McNeese State College. "realized or bettered." He also said that "no inflation is in sight." —Reiterated his confidence (hal Congress will "pass a good bill" in the civil rights field. —Announced that the balance of payments deficit in the first five months of the year was running at $500 million to $600 million compared with a $3.6 billion average for the last six years. The improvement in the balance of payments plus heavy Soviet sales of gold added $97 i million to American gold stocks | in the first, five months of the • year, he said. i Johnson said that at his breakfast meeting with Democratic congressional leaders, he emphasized the administration's plea for a temporary national debt limit of ?324 billion. The temporary ceiling of $315 billion is due to drop to $309 billion on June 30. Johnson said | that wouldn't be high enough because the debt itself is expected to total $311.8 billion on that day. "The debt limit is not a magic formula for promoting economy in government," he said, adding that frugality must be achieved through appropriations and tight management. In discussing Southeast Asia, Johnson contrasted American policies with those of the Communists. "It is others who make war I and we who seek peace," he ' said. And at another point he said "it is others—not we" who have brought terror to peasants and ignored agreements to promote stability. The President was questioned about reports that some American military equipment being used in South Viet Nam—notably helicopters—is obsolete. Johnson replied that he has no worry "about the quality of the equipment or the quality of the men handling it." He said military authorities are using the equipment they think best. And he said it is only normal for flaws to crop up from time to time in any piece of machinery. In his o p en i n g announcements, Johnson said he had sent a congratulatory message to Lai Bahadur Shastri, the new prime minister of India. He declined to say whether he was pleased with the selection, i saying that is a matter for the Indian people to decide. But he said his relationship with Shastri "has been good."

BATON ROUGE (AP)-Louisiana educators plan lo move ahead with passage of the $48.8 million pay raise-for teachers and other school workers. A decision to continue the strtiggla for the raise followed a meeting Monday of educators with Gov. John J. McKeilhen. The governor said the educators reported to him on the gravity of the situation, and he urged them again to give him more time to find the needed pay raise money. The teacher pay raise bill by Rep. Lawrence Gibbs, Ouachita Parish, remained in his House Education Committee. , The Senate took a companion ; measure from the Senate Education Committee and put it in the Senate Finance Committee, headed by Sen. B. B. Ilayburn, Bogalusa. President Frank L. Miller of the Louisiana Teacher Associa- tion said the LTA planned to move ahead with passage of the teacher salary schedule bill. On the basis of the talks with McKeithen, he said, he had good reason to believe the United School Committee salary schedule would be implemented during the 1964-Gn school year. Rep. Eugene McGehcc, East Baton Rouge, won 99-2 Housu passage of his constitutional measure calling for a hearing before any stale official can be addressed out of office by the legislature.

Jamar Adcock, Monroe, chairman of the committee, said he would try to arrange a hearing for ihe various code of ethics measures at 2 p.m. Monday. There was no indication of the time for hearing several bills to redraw the Senate's /districts. j Calcasieu Parish iSchool Board Is |Meeting Tonight The Calcasieu Parish School Board will meet today at 7:30 p.m. in the school board office.
