Then he added: "The prob- blem is to make sure the other side fully understands that we mean what we say." Rusk and McNamara were scheduled to see Johnson late in the day after the President's return from a speaking trip to ! New England. j McNamara was asked wheth- i cr there are any plans [or ex- jpanding the Vietnamese wnr into North Viet Nam. He declared that "no plans have been recommended to the President for approval and none has been approved." This stopped short of denying that plans have been made by military experts, but it was in effort in South Viet Nam and supporting m6re effectively the government of Premier Nguyen Khanh. Officials returning with the two Cabinet officers declined to say exactly what steps would be proposed to Johnson for achieving the purpose Rusk stated of making Communist North Viet Nam, Red China and the Soviet Union aware of U.S. determination not to let Southeast Asia fall to Red conquest. NcNamara flew from Washington to Hawaii last Sunday. Rusk went there from India where he served last week as President Johnson's special representative at funeral services for Indian Prime Minister Nehru. He said his time in India had been a "sad but deeply moving experience." He expressed admiration for the manner in which the new Indian leadership had acted to fill the gap created by Nehru's death.

They will aim to smash the 558. A short while before, Gov. Edmund G, Brown—who endorsed political aspirations_ of former j Cranston — commented, "The people now appear to have told us they prefer Salinger." Cranston remarked, although not conceding, "If Salinger is the winner, as it appears, I will be supporting him." Cronsfon, Salinger and Brown i all predicted the party would close ranks to defeat Republican winner George Murphy, the former actor, in November. The portly 39-year-old Salinger, whose campaigning on the image of the late President Kennedy apparently paid off, said he'd be out at 5 a.m. today launching his general election campaign. Cranston had taken an early lead, but Salinger quickly caught up, The NBC and CBS television networks gave him the nomination about 9 p.m. Tuesday. Murphy, 61, beat out San Francisco financier Leland Kaiser and former Kansas Gov. Fred Hall, actor George Murphy, the Republican winner. Salinger, who bounced into the race on the last possible day and couldn't even vote for himself, because he's not registered in California, rode to victory on ballots from populous Los Angeles County. The latest returns from 30,199 of 32,861 precincts gave Salinger 1,067,312, Cranston 952,230. Earlier, Sallinger was buoyed by telephoned best wishes from President Johnson and Mrs. John F. Kennedy. That led him to cautiously claim victory before the belated Los Angeles County results finally started rolling in. Arriving in San Francisco from Los Angeles after midnight, the former White House press secretary told a crowd of 700 admirers at a Nob Hill hotel: "Let me say that it appears as if we have won the election. taken be done;'in the trouble area are up to Johnson.
