TWELVE PAGES SINGLE COPY 10 CENTS, Combat Infantrymen Land in Viet Nam Rusk Urges Increase In Economic Efforts WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dean Rusk opened the fourth U.S.-Japan joint cabinet committee conference today with a call for increased economic efforts by the two countries in Southeast Asia. He told the seven Japanese cabinet officers and their American counterparts that the two countries share a particular interest in Southeast Asia where freedom is threatened by aggressive neighbors. In response, Japan's foreign minister, Etsusaburo Shiina, said Japan has been taking "increased responsibility in the sphere of international economy, and in particular to our Asian neighbors." Shiina said that the progress [ already made in Japan-U.S. co-i Reserves Might Be Called, Belief NEW YORK (AP)—The New York Times said today that many high-ranking military officers and congressmen feel a limited call-up of reserves will soon be necessary to carry on the war in Viet Nam. A story by the Times' mill- i tary expert, Hanson W. Bald- > win, said a sizeable increase in i the 1966 defense budget also will i be needed. j He described the anticipated: increase in financial and man- ] power requirements as part of "preparations for a larger war role" by the United States. "Increased American casualties are foreseen, and there is an undercurrent of doubt in some quarters whether the United States public has been adequately prepared for such a heightened conflict," he wrote. The story cited indications by President Johnson that the U.S. commitment in Viet Nam "would have to go well beyond the present publicly announced goal of 75,000 men," and added:- i "In fact, officers say, forces' already in Viet Nam, plus those on the way or programmed, would bring the total of United States ground troops in South Viet Nam to somewhere between 100,000 and 150,000." Listing the various military units already there or due to go there, the report says: "Conventional battles are anticipated rather than the hit- and-run ambushes and the sometimes aimless 'search and destroy' patrolling of recent days. "The reasoning behind the United States assumption of combat responsibilities on the ground is based on a combination of factors, including the apparent ineffectually of the government forces, the growing strength of the Viet Cong and the belief that there is no other way to save the country." operative ties "will lose its firm basis unless it is accompanied by constant and strenuous efforts to bring about appropiiate solutions to each and every one as such problems that may arise between our two countries." Rusk said that wide variety of difficult problems could be expected from competition that develops between vigorous trading nations. "As old problems are solved new ones emerge," he said. But Rusk said that the United States and Japan must not let economic problems obscure the broader concern both countries share in the welfare of other countries of the world particularly in Asia. U.S. officials said that for the first time in years, little was being said to Japan about its Increasing trade with Communist China. Japan's trade with Peking this year will rise to $430 million, up about 40 per cent over 1964, according to the Japan- Communist China Export-Import Society. By comparison, U.S. trade with Japan is expected to exceed $4 billion this year and JFK Did Not Think LBJ Would Accept Vice Presidential Spot NEW YORK (AP) — The late John F. Kennedy offered the vice presidential spot on his 1960 ticket to Lyndon B. Johnson believing there was "practically no chance Johnson would accept," historian Arthur M. Schelsinger Jr. said today. The account, in Life Magazine, was taken from the historian's forthcoming book, "A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House." Schlesinger was Kennedy's special assistant in the White House. Kennedy decided the night of his nomination in 1959 to make the offer to Johnson the next day in the belief news of it "would reunite the Democrats, TOP JOB CHANGES IN CABINET—President Johnson has accepted the resignations of Eugene M. Zuckert, left, as Secretary of the Air Force, and Carl Rowan, center, as Director of the U.S. Information Agency, the White House announced. Dr. Harold Brown, right, the Pentagon Director of Defense Research and Engineering, will succeed Zuckert. Rowan has agreed to stay on until his successor is chosen. (AP Wirephoto) with trade only slightly in favor of the United States. In welcoming the seven Japanese Cabinet ministers, their wives and top advisers Sunday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Rusk praised Japan for "rapidly assuming responsibility and leadership to go with its position" as one of the great industrial powers of the world. This appeared the opening move by the U.S. delegation to win pledges of greater cooperation from Japan in economic projects that would supplement President Johnson's proposed $l-billion Asian development program. Much of the Japanese interest in the meeting this year is to make clear its concern that a rising spirit of protection Is by the United States could embitter relations and stunt the growth of trade. Japan is the largest overseas buyer of American products. The six-point agenda includes 'discussion of aviation, shipping, travel and fisheries. The Cabinet ministers will have a luncheon meeting with President Johnson at the end of their discussions, and will leave Thursday for Tokyo. 11 of 19 Crewmen on Downed Air Force Plane Rescued From Ocean Missing Boy Is Located GRAYLING (AP) — A 3Va- year-old parents' boy, missing from his Opposition to Plan Remains By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said today he doubts that recent compromises will soften opposition by some Senate liberals to a proposed constitutional amendment on legislative reapportionment.

(AP) — The Coast Guard and Air Force said today 11 men were rescued and eitht bodies recovered from the 19-man crew of an Air Force plane down in the fog- shrouded North Atlantic. A spokesman at Otis Air Base said one crewman, missing hours after all others had been accounted for, was alive and aboard a German destroyer. Lt. Cmd. William T. White, duty officer at Salem Coast Guard rescue station, said all survivors were taken aboard American and German destroyers. The four-engine, propeller driven radar picket plane took off from Otis last night. The bodies all were reported aboard the U.S. destroyer Barry out of Newport, R.I. Three survivors also were aboard the Barry. Helicopters from the U.S. carrier Wasp, on maneuvers in the area along with the German navy vessels, picked up most of the crewmen and deposited them on board one of the German ships. * * * i At least two men were picked up by small boats. Names of the survivors and other crewmen were not immediately available. The rescues were undertaken despite a fog which limited visibility to from 50 to 100 yards. The seas were reported as moderate, yet too rough for a sea Chevrolet Unvei Turbine-Powere By CHARLES C.

Appearing on ABC's radio- television program "Issues and Answers" Sunday night, Rusk was asked about the success of bombing raids into North Viet Rusk replied: "We had never suspected this in itself would be a decisive element but it is important that they have discovered that they are not going to please the older generation of professionals, improve the ticket's chances in the South and lay the basis of future collaboration with Johnson," Schlesinger wrote. But Kennedy's own staff was shocked at the possibility of Johnson on the ticket, Schlesinger wrote; the nominee himself was certain he was in trouble with party liberals who opposed Johnson and would make a convention floor fight against him. Kennedy was, in fact told by the labor-liberal leaders they doubted whether they could hold their own people in line if Johnson were chosen and predicted convention mutiny," Schlesinger said. Johnson was advised by his wife and nearly all his friends not to take the vice presidential spot if it were offered, Schlesinger said. Among those who advised him was the late Democratic House speaker, Sam Rayburn of Texas, he added. But despite all the advice, Johnson had other thoughts. "Whoever won the election, the post of senate leader would be very different under Kennedy or (Republican nominee Richard M.) Nixon from what it had been under (president D wight D.) Eisenhower," Schlesinger wrote of Johnson's thinking. Johnson could hardly expect be permitted thousands of to send tens of people into the to retain the power he had exerted with such relish and skill in the late 1950's. Beyond this, Johnson had long wanted to be 1,000'Big Red One Division Men Go Ashore 2,900 More Slated To Move in Tuesday By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Na.pj (AP)—The first large force,'61 U.S. ccmbat Infantrymen—3,900 men of the 1st Infantry Division —began landing in Viet Nanvto- day. ; The tirst 1,000 men of "Big Red One," as the division was known in World War II, landed at strategic Cam Ranh Bay, 1&) miles northeast of Saigon, and dug in on the sand dunes. --, The remainder of the famed division's 2nd Brigade will land elsewhere in Viet Nam Tuesday, a U.S. spokesman said. The landings will bring' the total of U.S. troops in Viet Nam to 71,000. The brigade commander, Col. James Simmons, said the first mission of his troops will be .to protect the U.S. Army's 35th Engineer group, which is working on harbor improvements at the. huge bay. ; *.- : ; "Later, when we get our feet on the ground, we'll get out ;here and find the Viet Cong," he said. .,y ;c There has been little Viet Cong action in the area of the bay in recent months, but.a big Communist buildup has been reported in the hills and moun- vehicle could be in general use by the early 1970's.

The German vessels, operating on maneuvers with the USS Wasp, are the former American destroyers USS Anthony, USS Ringgold and the USS Wadsworth.

Little more than an hour after the plane went down, a search See CREWMEN—Pag^f* 10. Estes repeated GM's contention that the turbine unit is best suited to commercial vehicles, rather than to passenger cars, as of now. Chrysler Corp. has been the main advocate of potential use of the turbine in autos and it currently has 50 experimental cars in the hands of the public on a loan basis. Chrysler officials said only a few weeks ago that they have made no deter mination as to whether the turbine car will be added to its sales line. * * * Ford Motor Co., like General Motors, has concentrated most of its turbine research work on its possible use in trucks. A Ford turbine truck recently completed a transcontinental trip and now is on display at the New York World's Fair. Estes took the wraps off a lot of material about the new turbine truck at Chevrolet's preview today. It is a glamor baby, from its name, Turbo Titan III, to its plush interior which includes carpeting and air conditioning. Estes, in his first news conference since taking over the leadership of the Chevrolet div* ision on July 1, said the GT-309 engine which powers the hew truck is a fifth generation gas turbine and represents more than 15 years of development. "An identical version of the turbine has been under test in a conventional Chevrolet truck for the past three years," he said. as heavy as powered diesel plained. "Because it has relatively few moving parts, it is almost vibrationless and should give substantially longer, more trouble free service with- an estimated normal life of at least 350,000 miles," he added. * * * Turbo Titan HI boasts a 280- horsepower gas turbine engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and functions best on kerosene or diesel oil, the GM executive said. The turbine engine has less than one-tenth as many parts as the conventional piston engine. In brief, compressed air and fuel are ignited in a combustion chamber, with the heated gas then ducted to turn the vanes of a turbine wheel which provides the vehicle's power. Estes summed up: "The turbine admittedly will be more costly than conventional engines at the outset and will have to offset that disadvantage by being more efficient, by doing a better job and by offering worthwhile advantages to the truck user that he can translate into terms of sound economics. "We are not at the point yet with the turbine, either in design or manufacturing costs, but we are confident we will be there before 'another decade passes." south to attack South Viet Nam and live in safety and comfort there in the north. "The idea of sanctuary is dead as far as this situation is concerned, and t.hat is some thing that all of the others who may be supporting Hanoi must take fully into account " Asked if that included the Red Chinese, Rusk responded: "Including everybody. Including everybody who elects to get into this war.' In military terminology, "to take sanctuary" is to hit an enemy, then run back into an area where you would not suffer a return blow. On the question of the five missile sites now being built near Hanoi, Rusk said: "Those missile sites at the present time are not interfering with the things that we feel are rquired to be done at the present time." He added, "We can't write the future until we know what the other side is going to do about the future." Rusk repeated previous statements that the sites are for surface-to-air missiles with a range of about 30 miles, and emphasized: "They are not operational and we have lost no Americans to these sites up to this point." a national and not a sectional political figure. "Now he saw what might be a last chance to break out of the Texas trap and become a national leader. He doubtless saw too, a chance to save the South from growing bitterness and is olation by leading it back into the Democratic party and th national consensus." The effect, in the end, Schlesinger said, was Johnson's ac ceptance; a final wavering on Kennedy's part because of the threatened floor fight, and a reassurance from an aide that the ticket would more than make up for liberal losses with Southern gains. / Kennedy's brother Robert, who engineered John F. Kennedy's campaign for the nomination, made the formal. offer to Johnson saying, -'he wants you to be vice president if you want to be vice president." But Robert was obviously unhappy about it, Schlesinger said. When it was all over, he was heard to comment," "my God, this wouldn't'have happened except that we were all too tired last night,"- the historian said.

(AP) — If the U.S. .spacecraft Mariner 4 could talk, it probably would say: "M-M-man, it's c-c-cold up here." The temperature on the shady side of the 575-pound, windmill- shaped craft is 130 degrees below zero Fahrenheit • It's so cold 132 million miles out in space — that's where Mariner 4 is today, only two days away from its July 14 picture-taking date with Mars — that one of its scientific instruments is chattering like a tropical monkey in a snowstorm. Its radio gibberish Is completely even to comput- unintelligible, ers. The instrument, called a solar plasma probe, is one of severa which scientists hope will provide more really new informa tion about Mars than the 21 pho tographs Mariner 4's television camera can take. The probe, designed to meas ure the hot, radioactive gases — called plasma — boiling of: from the sun, went haywire days after Mariner 4 wa launched Nov. 28.

But the farther the spacecraft went away from the sun in its curving voyage out to Mars, the colder it got. Weakened by the resistor failure, the plasma probe became more temperature - dependent than other parts of the craft. Eventually, decoding the gibberish took more expensive computer time than was feasible. Mariner 4 was designed to maintain an internal temperature of 55 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit despite the cold of space, absorbing just enough heat from the sun to supplement firm. Police said no one was injured. The explosions ripped apart three ice cream trucks used by the firm. Police said the blasts blew out windows in nearby buildings and awoke many families. A total of five mysterious explosions have occurred in the Chicago area since early Wednesday. Three of the blasts rocked the downtown section of the city. Police said that the explosives used in the latest blasts were rigged to the bumpers of the ice cream trucks. Two men were reportedly seen running from the scene of this morning's explosions and police were searching the West Side area. The third bomb blast occurred late Sunday night in downtown Chicago. No injuries were reported in that blast. Police said Sunday night's explosion occurred under a car belonging to an • employee of the Chicago Tribune. Three cars tains inland from it. U.S. sources said Communist strength may be as much as a regiment. Thirty U.S. Air Force planes made repeated strikes on ordnance depots north of Hanoi today, military spokesmen said. One mission took four F102s and eight F4s, with three other aircraft in support; "over 'the Yen Bai depot, 77 miles northwest of Hanoi.
