Ship Sinks After Straits' Collision Today President Signs Bill to Finance Viet Nam War Cites Determination To Resist Aggression WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson signed today a special $700 - million appropriation to finance the war in Viet Nam and said it was a message of American determination to resist aggression in Southeast Asia. Johnson signed the bill in the East Room of the White House just three days after he asked Congress for the funds. "It is not the money but the message that matters. And that message is simple — that message is clear," he said. "We will do whatever must be done to ensure the safety of South Viet Nam from aggression. We will use our power with restraint and with all the wisdom we can command. But we will use it." Johnson said that "once this message is clearly understood by all there will be greater hope for peace." * * * The money bill sped through the Senate Thursday, com pleting congressional action in almost unprecedented time, but some thunderbolts were hurled at the White House. Despite the chorus of Senate warnings that passage of the bill did not mean Congress was signing any blank checks for administration policy, Johnson treated it as the evidence of solidarity for which he asked. To Americans fighting and dying in Viet Nam, Johnson said, the measure declares: "We are going to give you the tools to finish the job." The President said the money will be spent for helicopters, ammunition and planes. "We will lay aside these weapons when peace comes— and we hope it comes swiftly," he said. "But that is in the hands of others besides ourselves. For months we have waited for a sign—a signal—a whisper—that our offer of unconditional discussions has fallen on receptive ears." He said no sound has been heard nor any signal sighted. After reading his statement, and before signing the appropriation Johnson added some verbal applause for Congress, saying: "You have acted promptly, you have acted wisely, you have acted patriotically." * * * Congress should "resent being led around like a* dog on a least and given 48 hours to pass bills which the administration seeks to gird up its shaky policies,' stormed Sen. Ernest Gruening D-Alaska, one of three senators who voted against the appropriation. And Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R- N.Y., mirrored the concern of several who voted for the bil when he said: "I hope the President will not let this vote go to his head. We are voting to uphold the President in this particular action but we are not voting for the President to do everything in violation of our consciences am full consent." Still, the President got the swift and overwhelming approv al he sought, and he plans to sign the appropriation into law today.

George Romney today handed the legislature a "do-it-yourself fiscal reform kit" of .12 tax proposals and 7 possible budgets for the next three years. Romney met with 25 lawmakers in the second of a series of meetings on fiscal reform and the state's revenue needs in the next three years. Keeping an earlier promise to present alternate plans, he drew up budgets that ranged from a stand - still spending plan that would wipe out the state's surplus in two years, to a plan that would leave the state $307 in debt by July 1, 1968. His tax alternates, tied to the various budgets, included reductions or repeal of the business activities tax, property and sales tax relief and several approaches to income taxes. Rep. George Montgomery, D- Detroit, chairman of the House General Taxation Committee and a champion of fiscal reform, dubbed the Romney proposals a "do-it-yourself kit." * * * "And a do-it-yourself kit is next main point of discussions will be spending targets for the next three years, he added. "We have to find revenue sources without resorting to patchwork consumer taxes," Montgomery said, "and logic takes you back to an income tax every time." * * * The income tax alternatives ranged from 2.5 to 3.5 per cent —some allowing a $1,000 exemption, some without. Romney and Montgomery repeated their previous theme that fiscal integrity (keeping the state solvent) is more important than fiscal reform alone. Retaining integrity without a fiscal reform program would mean stop-gap, patchwork tax increase proposals. Although the state treasury surplus is on its way to a predicted $104 million, Romney has told everyone who will lis- just what we added. need," Romney "Fiscal reform is nearer now than it was week ago," a month ago or a Rmoney added. it's "But that doesn't mean close by any means." He praised a move by Rep. Roy Spencer, R-Ithaca, Thursday to limit property tax assessments to 40 per cent of true cash value. The move was backed by Montgomery as a means of forcing fiscal reform. "This is one approach to property tax relief we could very well use," Romney said. Using the Romney alternate budgets and alternate tax plans as a starting point for discussions, the graup will meet again "the early part of the week after next," Romney said. The ten that within two years the surplus will be gone. Revenues, he says, are not increasing as fast as population- oriented costs. His proposed general fund budget for this year is $788 million, but will be up to $925 million in three years just from population expansion, says the Republican governor. Enough tax bills are in the legislative hopper to provide a vehicle for almost any kind of fiscal program — but lining up favorable votes would be another matter. * * * . Some House members tried Thursday to commit the legislature to fiscal reform by in effect cutting local property tax revenues by up to 20 per cent. But the House delayed for two weeks a decision on the bill amendment in question. In the Senate Thursday, Sen. Stanley Rozycki, D-Detroit, introduced a resolution calling for a moratorium on new taxes for one year while a legislative committee studies taxes. LANSING (AP) — The Senate again delayed action Thursday on a proposed tough new water pollution law. Sponsors of the measure yielded somewhat with an amendment removing municipalities from criminal penalty provisions of the bill and then lost narrowly in a move to strike out a provision which exempts certain mining activities from law. Action now cannot come before, Monday night. Present law provides legal remedy only against polluters who are found to be acting willfully. It never has resulted in a conviction. The Senate bill would make illegal any discharge of any substance which changes the character of water. Sen. Gerald Dunn, D-Flushing, the bill's chief sponsor, said Thursday he was agreeing to removal of local governments from criminal provisions of the law in the wake of a concerted drive by the Michigan Municipal League and its members. Sen. S. Don Potter, R-Lansing, charged that the bill would still be far too expensive. He said Lansing would have to spend $100 million to $150 million adjusting its sewage system and that the cost might run to $2.5 billion in Detroit. He said industry might have to spend $6 billion to comply. Sen. Carl O'Brien, D-Pontiac chairman of the conservation committee, said "I deny every figure Sen. Potter has men tioned.' The Wrong Turn Blamed for Deaths Of 4 Marines in Dominican By LOUIS UCHITELLE SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Another wrong turn into rebel territory was blamed today for the deaths of four Marines, bringing the U.S. death toll in the Dominican fighting to at least 13. U.S. sources said three Marines were killed Thursday after a patrol wandered accidentally into the insurgent-held sector of downtown Santo Domingo. Two others were wounded and one died after he was taken to the aircraft carrier Boxer. A rebel spokesman said one insurgent was killed and two wounded in the encounter. The rebels at first accused the United States of violating the cease- fire arranged Wednesday by a peace commission of the Organization of American States. Later they said they believed the Marine patrol had taken a wrong turn. Two U.S. newsmen who had been observing the clash from a taxi were caught in the crossfire and wounded slightly. They were Al Brut and photographer Doug Kennedy, both of the Miami (Fla.) Herald. A U.S. military source said the newsmen had passed through a rebel checkpoint and were approaching the U.S. lines When the insurgents opened fire on the Marines and the Marines fired back. The source said it was probable that U.S. gunfire wounded the newsmen. Another Marine patrol took a wrong turn Wednesday into rebel territory. After sharp firing the rebels captured two of the Marines but released them Thursday to Commission. the OAS Peace The commission returned them to American authorities. In other incidents Thursday, snipers wounded two U.S. paratroopers and hit a helicopter, wounding the pilot in the legs. A flurry of sniping activity broke out near the U.S. Embassy during the afternoon, but it died down quickly. Sec MARINES — Page 12 . controversial mining amendment was tacked on the bill earlier this week by Sen Joseph Mack, D-Ironwood, who pleaded that the Upper Peninsu la mining industry might fold i mine tailings could not go into water. Dunn and O'Brien tried to re move the amendment, and a] though the Senate voted witt them 16-15, they were four vote short of the 20 needed at the fi nal stage of debate. The Senate Appropriation Committee, meanwhile, pro duced its first major budget bill recommending $19.6 million fo public health functions of th state. This is about a half-millio: less than recommended by Gov George Romney. The Department of Health absorbed most of the cut which committee chairman Garland Lane, D- Flint, said was scattered across various functions. 6,000 More Men Go to Viet Nam SAIGON, South Viet Nam AP) — A flotilla of landing :raft brought 3,000 U.S. Marines and 3,000 Seabees ashore today at Chu Lai, 52 miles south of the big Da Nang air base. The ,eathernecks will guard a combat airfield which the Seabees ivill construct. There was no contact with the Viet Cong during the landing, but far to the South the Communist guerrillas staged a savage attack on a Roman Catholic town, inflicting 105 casualties. Eighty-one U.S. Jets attacked bridges and barracks in North Viet Nam today. Main attention was given to the Than Hoa highway and railroad bridge, 80 miles south of Hanoi. A spokesman said the bridge remained standing, but its approaches were badly damaged. One F105 fighter-bomber was shot down at sea. The pilot was rescued. U.S. officials in Saigon reported three raids by 10 U.S. Navy planes Thursday over North Viet Nam. The sorties were aimed at railroad traffic, ferry boats, bridges and trucks. Pilots reported good results, but specific details were not given. All planes returned to their carriers, officials said. The Marines and Seabees landed at Chu Lai in perfect weather, and 'the Seabees went to work at once building a 4,000- foot airstrip to be used for operations in central Viet Nam. Intelligence sources have said a North Vietnamese regiment is operating in the foothills and mountains to the west of Chu Lai. After construction is completed, the Marines will move REBEL LEADER—Col.

Minnesota Tornadoes' Death Toll Rises to 12 By GALE TOLLIN MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The death toll rose to at least 12 today from a string of tornadoes that spewed death and destruction over this heavily populated area, injuring more than 300 and causing millions of dollars in damage. . Police said two more bodies were found in the suburb of Mounds View as coroner's aides began the grim task of searching the rubble where dozens of homes stood before Thursday night's twisters hit. Several of the dead remained unidentified. More than two dozen suburbs lay in the path of the winds that skipped to the ground and lifted, only to come down again over sections to the southwest, west and north of Minneapolis during the supper hour. Heavy rain and two-inch hailstones preceded the twisters. Utility lines were flattened, in many sections dangerously crossing highways lined with homeward-bound workers. Dozens of accidents were reported on the highways. * * * Hundreds of homes were damaged and many were destroyed. Gov. Karl Rolvaag called out Four persons died at Spring Lake Park, one at Mounds View and one at Norwood. The injured in twisters that hit Fridley, Spring Lake Park and Mounds View were brought to Mercy Hospital at Coon Rapids in a continuous stream. After two hours, the hospital's administrator, Robert Van Hauser, pleaded with ambulance drivers and motorists to take their injured to other nearby hospitals. * *' * Van Hauser estimated that 1 Men Reported Missing; One Body Is Found Limestone Carrier Hit by Freighter MACKINAW CITY (AP) — Two ships smashed together in the fog-shrouded Straits of Mackinac today and one, the 588- foot limestone carrier Cedarville, sank. Coast Guard radio reports from the area said 26 survivor* were picked up, one body was recovered and seven men still were missing.

Sheppard was sentenced to life imprisonment. Attorney F. Lee Bailey of Boston said at a news conference here mailed the Thursday that he appeals court a request for a rehearing. Bailey also said he had asked for a 20-day extension — to June 14 — in addition to the 20 days already allowed to answer the appellate court order. The "ultimate aim is to get a new trial" for Sheppard, Bailey said. Sheppard was freed last July by a federal judge who ruled his constitutional rights were violated during his trial.

HIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials said today the United States hopes to begin withdrawing some of its 20,000 troops from the Dominican Republic within a few days as contingents from other American nations move in. Final decisions on the timing and number of withdrawals are yet to be made by President Johnson. Officials indicated they would be shaped in considerable degree by the speed and size of forces contributed by other countries to the peacekeeping operations of the Organization of American States. The OAS voted early Thursday to set up an inter-American military force in the Dominican Republic. Two countries, Paraguay and Venezuela, announced they were ready to contribute military units. The Costa Rican Security Ministry said later Thursday that country would send 10 to 20 men from its police j organization, since U has no regular gentina ering units. There was a matic quarters army.

About a dozen homes were damaged and several persons injured. Then it circled around Lake Minnetonka's west side and moved over the lake to the east side. Dozens of lakeside cabins and residences were smashed and scores of residents were injured. The tornado then traveled northeastward hitting Fridley, Spring Lake Park and Mounds View before it left the area.

The Cedarville belonged to the Bradley Transportation Co. and was built in River Rouge in 1927. The Bradley line suffered a heavy, loss in November of 1958 when its 600-foot limestone carrier, the Carl D. Bradley, cracked up and sank in a Lake Michigan storm.
