Aides Given Word On Policy in Asia WASHINGTON TAP) - President Johnson has passed the word to aides that along with the assignment of his new top command team to South Viet Nam, he wants the whole U.S. mission in Saigon beefed up as much as possible. In taking a new look at the Southeast Asian crisis because of the resignation of Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Johnson is said to have determined that the time has come for the United States to make a major effort, as some officials phrase it, "to turn the war around." Some (op authorities believe the firm leadership of South Vietnamese president, Maj. Gen. Nguyen Khanh, is beginning to show results, that improved U.S. techniques in training South Vietnamese forces is also showing results and that the ill effects in disorder and damaged morale of the political upheavals of last fall and winter are beginning to be overcome. President Johnson, it is understood, had expected that Lodge, the kingpin of the U.S. organization and effort in South Viet Nam, would remain on the job until August. But Lodge decided for what he has called purely personal reasons that he had to leave almost at once. He said he wanted to help Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton in his effort to win the GOP presidential nomination. Johnson an- nounced Tuesday the acceptance of the resignation which Lodge submitted last Friday. At the same time, and according to a principle that had previously been adopted that there should be no gap between Lodge and his successor, Johnson announced an unprecedented combination of talents and experience would be sent into the U.S. Embassy at Saigon— with Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, leaving the chairmanship of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to become ambassador, and Deputy Undersecretary of State U. Alexis Johnson to become deputy ambassador. Already on the scene was Lt. Gen. William C. Westmoreland, who a few days earlier had taken over as chief of U.S. military forces from Gen. Paul D. Harkins. Well-informed officials now say that a new and probably "big name" director of U.S. economic assistance also will be sent to Saigon on top of a routine change of personnel which was already scheduled. Joseph L. Brent, director of the aid mission, is being replaced by Stuart H. Van Dyke, formerly a director in Turkey. Both men are long experienced in foreign aid operations overseas and both rank high in their agency, according to officials here.
