Earle G. Wheeler. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, are to leave for Saigon tonight on a weeklong survey which is generally expected to result in a decision to make substantial increases in the U.S. forces in Viet Nam. At a forenoon news conference, McNamara said the Communists have forces in the country which they have not yet used and he therefore predicted new Red military operations. President Johnson had disclosed Tuesday that calling reserves to active duty and enlarging draft quotas were under consideration but said that no decisions would be made pending the return of the McNamara survey group. "We will do whatever is necessary," Johnson told a news conference. He also forecast that "new and serious decisions" will have to be made. McNamara said the purpose of the trip to Viet Nam is to review U.S. force levels, the number of American troops to be assigned there under present plans, and the level of equipment and supplies for waging the anti-Communist war. "If forces are increased in strength," McNamara .said in response to a question, "it will be necessary to consider calling up reserves, and extending tours officials say there is no I <£, "^ now ln military serv ' Little Progress Seen for Talks By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH GENEVA i AP)—Despite Soviet agreement to return to the Geneva disarmament talks, con- Immediate prospect for important progress before the U.N.

The Soviet bloc repeatedly had turned down American proposals to revive the talks, saying it preferred to carry on the discussions in the 114-member U.N. Disarmament Commission in New York. The commission voted overwhelmingly last month for a resumption of the Geneva talks, and Western officials here believe this played a big part in the Soviet change | of heart. The United States is reported willing for the first time to discuss the multilateral nuclear force' proposed for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization at the conference. The Soviets have warned repeatedly that creation of the force would raise "inaurmouta- ble obstacles" to any treaty to prevent the spread of nuclear arms. The conference, which was first convened in March 1962, has been deadlocked lor years over rival Soviet and U.S. disarmament plans. McNamara did figures on U.S. are known to have reached a level of about 75,000 now and are expected to go well over 100,000. He did, however, say that the Viet Cong forces —including reinforcements from North Viet Nam — total 65,000 regular guerrillas and up to 100,000 irregular guerrillas. McNamara was asked whether the United States has any plans to take the initiative against the Viet Cong. He replied that the primary responsibility for securing the independence of South Viet Nam against Red conquest "must be the responsibility of the South Vietnamese." Johnson, at his news conference, refused in response to a specific question, to rule out the possibility of a niajor land war in Asia because, he said, no ne can prophesy what the coming weeks or months will bring. But Johnson's assertion that new and serious decisions may be necessary amounted to an alert to the American people of possible grim news in the offing. McNamara and 6th graph 10"!

Sheppard married Ariane Teb- benjohanns, a German divorcee he met by mail, two days after a federal district judge ordered him released from Ohio Penitentiary on grounds he had not received a fair trial in the slaying of his first wife. The Sheppards have lived quietly in a Cleveland suburb, awaiting final action in the case. The appeallate court held by a 2-1 vote on May 5 that Sheppard's appeal did not show a violation of federal constitutional rights. Today's denial of a rehearing also was 2-1. Sheppard's wife, Ariane, said he was in a neighborhood market when the word of the denial reached him. She added they had not yet reached his attorney, F. Lee Bailey, in Boston. "We were prepared by Mr. Bailey that 95 per cent O f such appeals are rejected, but we felt we had a good case and were hopeful'they would rehear the case with the full bench," she told The Associated Press. "What I am more concerned about right now is that he will be able to stay free on bond. There's no question about our appealing to tne Supreme Court." The appeals court clerk's office said Sheppard has five days in which to ask for another stay of the order to send him back to prison. A stay would be sought if an appeal is filed with the U.S. Supreme Court. Sheppard's lawyer vowed after the earlier decision to carry the case to the highest court. He be- appeals court, but this was denied today. Sheppard has consistently denied killing his pregnant wife, Marilyn, contending she was slain by a bushy-haired intruder in their suburban Cleveland home July 4, 1954. He said he was knocked unconscious by the intruder.

S. spokesman announced. The point appeared to be about an equal distance south of Red China's frontier. The spokesman said four U.S. Air Force F105 Thunderchiefs heavily damaged the two trucks during a reconnaissance mission. The raid was one of a series staged by more than 70 U.S. and South Vietnamese planes, largely against barracks, staging areas and military depots. Dien Bien Phu is 210 miles north-northwest of Hanoi. Ground and air action raged in the area of Da Nang, the air Twenty-five miles southwest of Da Nang, a guerrilla force of unknown strength overran a government outpost at An Hoa, in Quang Nam Province, killing 26 in the garrison and wounding one, a U.S. Army spokesman said. Details were sketchy. It was not known if any Americans were involved. One U.S. Marine was killed and another wounded when about 15 Viet Cong attacked a Marine loading party on a beach about 10 miles southeast of Da Nang, military spokesmen said. The Marines called in tanks and the Viet Cong withdrew, the spokesmen added. There was no of Saigon. More than 150 planes attacked a suspected Viet Cong headquarters. Red guerrillas overran a government outpost, killing 26 defenders. Between 150 and 200 U.S. and Vietnamese planes blasted a 1.5- square-mile area 40 miles south of Da Nang for three hours in one of the heaviest air assaults in central Viet Nam in months, a U.S. Air Force spokesman said. The pilots said they could not estimate the damage because 90 per cent of the area was dense jungle.

Sheppard had fought his case unsuccessfully through various courts until last July 16, when U.S. Dist. Judge Carl Weinman in Dayton ordered him freed on grounds he had not received a fair trial. Weinman cited publicity about the case and pretrial remarks allegedly made by the judge who presided over the trial. But the appeallate court held both May 5 and today that Sheppard had failed to prove that "he was deprived of federally granted constitutional rights."

Cut in Military Costs Reported By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara announced today that military spending in the just- ended fiscal year fell $3.75. billion below forecasts. . McNamara credited this reduction, which brought defense spending to $47.5 billion in fiscal 1965, largely to his cost reduction program. He claimed in an annual progress report that this program saved $4.6 billion in the last fiscal year — more than double the $2.1 billion saving he predicted one year ago. McNamara said the program is going so well that savings of $6.1 billion a year by fiscal 1969 and each year after that "have been set as our new long range goal." LONDON (AP) — Adlai *. Stevenson collapsed in the street outside the U.S. embassy today and died in St. George's Hospital. He was 65. The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations was on a short visit to London and had just left the Embassy on Grosvenor Square when he was stricken. He had kept up a busy schedule here, visiting friends and political contacts. Cause of death was not immediately announced. Earlier today Stevenson had conferred with Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart at the Foreign Office. On Sunday he lunched with Prime Minister. Harold Wilson at Chequers, the country home of British prime ministers. He had arrived here from Paris on Sunday and had been expected to return to the United States this weekend. During his trip to Europe Stevenson also attended the meeting of the U.S. Economic and Social Council. The man who was the Democratic Presidential candidate in 1952 and 1956 did not appear to have been in poor health. Monday night he was interviewed on British Broadcasting Corp. television about U.S. policy in Viet Nam. To viewers, he seemed his usual selfpossessed articulate self. He collapsed on a mild, surjny day, with the temperature in the 70s. He collapsed on the sidewalk in front of the Sportsman's Club, International halfway between the embassy on Grosvenor Square and Park Lane. "Apparently passersby called an ambulance but we do not yet know who it was," said a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy. Stevenson had been visiting London for talks with British officials.
