"Now. there, be it resolved that this National Association of Secretaries of Slate recommend that the Constitution of the United Slates be amended to insure the right of the individual states to organize their bicam- rral legislative bodies in such manner as the people of such slates may determine, so long as one house of said bicameral legislative bodies be apportioned on Ihe basis of population as nearly as may be practical." The resolution was presented by Wesley Bolin, secretary of state of Arizona. Martin, who attended the NASS annual convention in New York last week,; said that his committee's report covered a number of subjects on elections generally.

IN CAMPAIGN GOP Split Over Viet Nam Issue WASHINGTON (AP) - Many Republican leaders agree that the Johnson administration's conduct of the anti-Communist guerrilla war in South Viet Nam will be an issue in the presidential campaign. But they do not agree on what line of attack to follow. Some have called for an expansion of the U.S. effort in terms of geography and intensity. Some contend that present policy is all right but that a Republican administration could implement it better. And some have called for withdrawal of U.S. forces or a negotiated settlement. And at least one prominent Republican, Henry Cabot Lodge, has maintained that he does not see how Viet Nam could be an issue in this election. But Lodge, who quit as ambassador to the embattled Southeast Aiasn nation to help the campaign of Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania for the GOP presidential nomination, agreed Sunday that Viet Nam "is a legitimate subject to discuss and debate." But he still did not view it as a major issue. President Johnson and such administration spokesmen as Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara have made it plain in recent weeks that the United Stales will continue its efforts to support the anti-Communist government of South Viet Nam. And they have left the door open to carrying these efforts to North Viet Nam. Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, the front-running candidate for the GOP nomination, has contended that under present policies "We'll be fighting in Viet Nam for a decade, and, at best, we'll end up with a draw or a slow defeat." He has called several times for bombing of the Communist Viet Cong guerrillas' supply lines from North Viet Nam, Cambodia, and if necessary, Communist China. Scranton, Goldwaler's closest rival for the nomination, has i said "We must give all practi- ! cal support to efforts by I h e ! South Vietnamese to end the ! use of Laos, Cambodia and North Viet Nam as privileged sanctuaries."
