Lodge Denies He's Resigning Ambassador Post muNDAY, JUNE 15, T964, J BE WISE—USB CLASSIFIED SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP)-U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge today termed "totally untrue'' a Washington report (hat lie was resigning within 30 days. "There is no truth at all in that." Lodge said through a spokesman. Lodge rppeatrnly has denied similar reports in the past. On one recent occasion he said "I am not resigning but I don't plan to stay here the rest of my life, either." The New York Times had reported that lx>dge had asked to be relieved within 30 days for reasons of health. The '\Vhite House in Washington said Pres- ident Johnson had received no letter of resignation. I The Columbia Broadcasting j System reported from Saigon j that Lodge said the report that i : he had submitted his resigna-1 tion was "totally untrue." j The American Broadcasting! Co. said Lodge, talking Sunday j night in Saigon with ABC correspondent Charles P. Arnot, denied published reports that he i was returning to the United States before the Republican i National Convention. Lodge j made no mention in the taped j interview about resigning, an! ABC spokesman said. i Lodge, 61, won New Hampshire's Republican presidential primary on write-in votes and now has 46 delegates who say they will vote tor him on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention opening in San Francisco July 13. Lodge's son, George Cabot Lodge, reported Sunday that he had informed the ambassador on Friday that the draft Lodge movement was supporting Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania, who entered the GOP presidential race that day. "My father sent me a telegram saying he was delighted by the decision to support Scranton. He said, 'Please tell Gov. Scranton how happy I am,' " the younger Lodge reported. The Times dispatch, by Max Frankel under a Washington dateline, said: "Lodge told President Johnson that the resignation was prompted by reasons of health, which he did not specify. The timing of the request dated Saturday, will assure his return home no later than one day before the start of the Republican convention. . . . "Mr. Lodge's move will free him of the restraints of the Foreign Service and enable him to participate in efforts to deny the Republican presidential nomination to Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona." Asked about the New York Times story, White House press secretary George E. Reedy said Sunday night that Lodge's post "is a presidential appointment and the President has received no such communication." Lodge, the 1960 Republican candidate for vice president, had denied repeatedly he planned to leave his Saigon post. Despite his refusal to discuss politics. Lodge's supporters entered him in several presidential primaries. After winning New Hampshire's 14 votes, he added 30 from his native Massachusetts and one each from Alaska and Ohio. Lodge was named to the Sai- gon post last June 27 by President John F. Kennedy. In 1952, Kennedy had captured Lodge's Accountant's Pay Is Mother's Pies !
