ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE NEWS SERVICE IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 12, 1965. SIXTEEN PAGES SINGLE COPY 10 CENT1 U.S. Sends 2,400 More Men to Viet Nam Rusk Explains U.S. Policy at NATO Meeting Asks for Backing of 15-Narion Alliance LONDON (AP)—Secretary of State Dean Rusk explained U.S. policy in Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic to the Atlantic Alliance allies today and asked them to show how these delicate problems could be handled any better. Rusk, newly arrived from Washington, went into a secret session of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization conference hoping for understanding and backing from the 15-nation alliance. The NATO foreign ministers met for an hour and 15 minutes in a semisecret session—one in which the substance of their remarks were relayed later to newsmen. Then came a secret session limited to delegation heads and one with press offi cers and other delegation members excluded. * + * Diplomatic sources said Rusk, in his talks with the Atlantic allies, intended to stress the diplomatic complexities of the Viet Nam problem. Rusk is expected to tell other members that the Viet Cong seems to be massing its forces, presumably for the seasonal offensive the Communists often launch with the coming of the monsoon season. Because of the explosive situation in the Dominican Republic, Rusk originally had planned to leave the London conference to Undersecretary of State George W. Ball, who deputized for him at Tuesday's opening session. Then Rusk flew in from Washington overnight. Informants said several developments at the opening NATO session Tuesday prompted the change of plans. * * * One development was the unrest voiced over the Viet Nam and Dominican Republic situations. Several foreign ministers expressed uneasiness over these American policies. Maurice Couve de Murville of France said the Vietnamese war would lead to conflict with Communist China or the Soviet Union. Another factor was a complaint by British Prime Minister Harold Wilson that high-pressure sales campaigns by American arms manufacturers were shutting Britain out of the alliance's arms market. He warned that Britain might have to consider the effect on its reserves of hard currency. * * * This was taken as a threat to cut British forces in West Germany, which are assigned to NATO, unless the cost of their maintenance is eased by arms sale to West Germany. The United States, Britain and France formally reaffirmed that they share with the Soviet Union the responsibility for a final all-German peace settlement. The decision had been announced Tuesday. President Charles, de Gaulle's government had wanted the declaration to reflect France's new line — that it was mainly for Europeans to work out a solution of the German problem. This would have excluded the Americans. A sudden retreat by Couve de Murville Monday night opened the way to agreement to the relief of the whole Atlantic alliance. RATION TIME—Under the watchful eyes of U.S. troops, Dominican women line up at one of the numerous stations in Santo Domingo where American food supplies are being handed out to relieve civilian privation during the civil struggle.

The talk aroused speculation that the rebel leader would meet soon with Brig. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barreras, president of the rival civilian-military junta. Msgr. Emanuele Clarizip, papal nuncio to the Dominican Republic, sat in on the talk between Caamano and Martin and said later he was "highly optimistic" of a settlement of the 17-day-old civil war. Caamano, however, in an address over the rebel-held Radio Santo Domingo said: "I will not take a step backward in spite of the enormous U.S. force." He derided the junta as "an inoperative force" and charged anew that President Johnson sent 20,000 soldiers and Marines to the Dominican Republic on the false assumption that the country was threatened by a Communist takeover. Caamano has refused to meet with Imbert until he purges several leading officers from the armed forces. His chief foe is Brig. Gen. Elias Wessin y Wessin, commander of the San Isidro training base, who directed the forces that opposed Caamano's rebel forces. U.S. Embassy officials said j Monday that Wessin had agreed I to resign but later changed his i mind. Imbert said Tuesday he I would accept Wessin's resignation "if it is his wish." The unofficial total of American dead in the Dominican Republic rose to 14. A U.S. Army lieutenant was killed and seven other paratroopers were wounded Monday night when they were caught in sniper crossfire. The rebels contended the paratroopers were five blocks outside the U.S. policed international safety zone. A U.S. spokesman said they were inside the zone. U.S. forces brought up a 106mm field gun and blasted two rooftops where the snipers were believed hidden. At least two Dominican civilians were reported wounded. A rebel spokesman charged that U.S. troops have killed 22 unarmed civilians and wounded 11 since May 3. The Organization of American States ordered part of its peace mission back to the Dominican Republic from Washington in a new effort to find a settlement. The OAS decided because of the Dominican crisis to postpone an inter-American conference of foreign ministers set for May 20 in Rio de Janeiro.

Sen. Carl O'Brien, D-Pontiac, committee chairman, said his committee backs the contention of the State Conservation Department that the some $250,000 spent yearly on bounties does little to control predators. "It's been proven long ago that these bounty payments are a waste of taxpayers' money and could be better used in other outdoor areas," such as fish restoration programs," O'Brien said. O'Brien said his committee deferred action on a bill to repeal the bounty on coyotes because this was a different situation.

The group, guests of Field Enterprises Inc., owners of the mill, toured the facility and saw its new seven-story boiler, which replaces the five boilers used before.

"I never expected such a drastic move to turn a ship 90 degrees in poor visbility, that's poor seamanship," Haaland said. Haaland said he heard a "long screaming blast" from the Cedarville's whistle immediately prior to the collision. He said he ordered his engines in reverse at that moment and the ship was barely underway at the time of impact. Divers Tuesday brought up the bodies of two more victims from the Cedarville, which lies some 80-90 feet beneath the surface. The bodies of Arthur J. Fuhrman, 29, a watchman, and Wilbert W. Bredow, 49, a steward, both from Rogers City, were found still clad in foul weather gear and life jackets. Both leave wives and two children. The body Assam, 38, a Resident Asks ay Raises for rederal Workers Increase of 3 Per Cent Is Proposed WASHINGTON (AP) —President Johnson asked Congress today to give pay increases cost- ng $853 million a year to military personnel and federal white-collar workers. Johnson, in a special mes sage, proposed a three per cent across-the-board pay raise for all civil service workers, postal employes and members of the foreign service. The only ones within the executive branch excluded from the proposed increase would be the top policymaking officials and some 600,000 blue-collar workers whose pay already is geared to prevailing wages in the communities where they are based. For military personnel who have had at least two years of service, an average increase of 4.8 per cent in total compensation — base pay plus allowances and fringe benefits — was proposed. Enlisted men who have served less than two years would get an increase averag ing 2.7 per cent. In another major proposal Johnson asked Congress to au thorize a government wide sala ry review every four years tha would compare federal pay with compensation offered by private industry. Johnson said that after such a study the president . should to authorized to propose changes in salaries for top positions in the executive, legislative and judicial branches which woul go into effect automatically un less disapproved by either hous< of Congress. This would permit member of Congress to approve pay in creases for themselves withpu being put in the spot of having to vote directly on the issue. The President also plans t send Congress within the week three other measures — on authorizing overtime pay fo postal workers now excluded from it, another to provide sev erance pay to those losing thei jobs due to such development as base closings, and a third tc underwrite the moving costs o transferred personnel, military and civilian. Urging prompt consideration of his proposals, which he sale would produce results tha would "more than justify thei costs," Johnson said his pla: would help "attract and retai: in federal service the best talen in America." The President said he wants the proposed pay increases to go into effect next Jan. 1. Of the $853 million of annual increases, $447 million would go to military personnel and $406 million to civilians.

Rider Killed SHORES (AP)— St. Clair Ban on Poll Tax Provision Sought By JOHN BECKLER WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican led the charge today as the Johnson administration fought to have the House Judiciary Committee strike an outright ban on state and local poll taxes from the voting-rights bill. Rep. William M. McCulloch of Ohio, senior Judiciary Republican, was fronting for the Democratic administration for a good reason: the Democratic chairman wouldn't. Rep. Emanuel Celler of New York is siding with other liberals — and fighting the White House — on this issue. President Johnson needed plenty of Republican help Tuesday to keep liberals from attaching a poll-tax ban to the bill in the Senate. He got it on a 4945 vote, largely because GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen supported him as he has consistent ly on civil rights legislation. Twenty - five Republicans joined 24 Democrats to defeat the ban, proposed as an amend ment by Sen. Edward M. Ken nedy, D-Mass. The late Presi dent John F. Kennedy's brother was backed by 38 other Democrats and 6 Republicans, including the assistant GOP leader Sen. Thomas Kuchel of California. Celler predicts the poll-tax amendment will be kept in the bill by the committee. As chairman he has considerable influence. But even if he succeeds in bucking the White House, the administration could make fight of it again farther down the legislative road — in House-Senate conference, for instance. The 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has banned the poll tax in federal elections. Virginia, Texas, Alabama and Mis sissippi are the only states that still require poll-tax payment; for voting in state and loca elections. Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzen bach contends a flat legislative ban on the poll tax would be of doubtful constitutionality. In stead, the administration is backing a provision that would bring an early court ruling. In any event, the Supreme Court already has announced it 1. It can sit on the surface and radio back to earth data of a kind that it has not been possible to obtain from photographs made by craft that crashed into the moon. 2. It will show whether a man can land on the moon with presently available types of space systems. Tass said that "elements of the system of soft landing on the moon are being tried out for the first time on the automatic station Lunik 5." An earlier version of this announcement said only that the spacecraft carried equipment for a soft landing. Previous Soviet and American moon shots have either crashed into the moon, stopping the flow of radioed information, or missed it. * * * Scientists have said that once a soft landing is achieved, electronic devices could analyze substances on the moon's surface and send the information back to earth. Such information could be a big factor in the continuing controversy over the moon's origin. Scientists have said, too, that similar soft landings on the planets could establish if life exists there and perhaps reveal the origin of the solar system. Tass said that according to telemetric measurements, the systems aboard Lunik 5 were working normally.

Surut, 40, of New York City. said would be the Army's "largest single concentration of firepower in the country." He said it is the first Army artillery sent to Viet Nam.

The demonstrators, gathered here from throughout the country, left Mount Vernon Methodist Church in Washington at 10 a.m., walked along 10th Street, down Constitution Avenue, crossed the 14th Street Bridge, and finally reached the main entrance of the Pentagon in nearby Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington. Leaders of the delegation said the group would maintain a silent vigil until 6 p.m. to serve as a witness for a peaceful settlement in Viet Nam and as a memorial to victims of the conflict. Luther King Jr. King was not expected to attend the vigil. The spokesman said the group is concerned mainly about the "human, moral — not the political — aspects" of the war in Viet Nam. He said the demonstration was organized for four purposes, which he put this way: "To express the sincere desire of the American people for a peaceful settlement in Viet Nam. "To express concern at escalation of the war, especially U.S. bombing of North Viet Nam. "To register our hopes that the United States will continually press for a settlement through unconditional discussions with all concerned parties. "To support and encourage President Johnson in a program Sky Diver Sued By Government LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a move to take "the profit motive out of such dangerous stunts." the federal government is suing Rod Pack, 26, who jumped from an airplane last Jan. 1 and picked up a parachute from a companion in the air. Pack, of North Hollywood, shared in proceeds from film sales after his chuteless dive near Arvin, Calif., on New Year's Day. He left the plane at 14,600 feet. At 4,000 feet he passed sky diver Bob Allen, 25. of North Hollywood. Allen handed him a closed parachute and Pack slipped into the harness and pulled the rip cord. The civil suit filed Tuesday by U.S. Atty. Manuel Real seeks $3,000 in punitive damages from Pack and an identical sum from the pilot, Harold L. Hanes, 41, of Van Nuys, Calif. The complaint alleges that it is illegal to jump from an airplane without a parachute; that no person may allow another to jump without a parachute and that such action is a hazard to air traffic. Allen was not mentioned the suit. ported.

Before the landing, one Marine on guard duty was wounded as the Viet Cong hat- assed the Marine positions. No Communist activity was reported during the landing. The landing heightened speculation that the entire 3rd Marine Division on Okinawa eventually would be committed to the fight against the Viet Cong. : The Chu Lai Marines, now up to regimental strength, are expected to begin ranging the countryside in search of Communists. ..',-• The Marines at Da Nang, who now total about 9,000 men, have been assigned more than 100 square miles of additional territory west of the air base to be cleared of Viet Cong. Originally the Da Nang Marines were said to be assigned only defense positions around the air base.. To the south, the battle for the provincial capital of Song 9e appeared over as an estimated 1,500 Communist guerrillas pulled back into the hills after a fierce daylong struggle that cost the lives of five American military advisers and 27 of the Vietnamese defenders. The Viet Cong overran Song Be, 74 miles north of Saigon, early Tuesday and held it for seven hours until U.8. ajr strikes opened the way for Vietnamese troops to retake the town of 15,000 people. Thirteen Americans and 66 Vietnamese were wounded. A senior U.S. military adviser, Lt. Col. John O.
