SIXTEEN PAGES SINGLE COPY 10 CINTf. Johnson Throws Down Gauntlet to Reds Gov. Rom ney Warns of Need for New Taxes LANSING CAP)—Gov. George Romney warned Michigan citizens today that new taxes will be needed to provide adequate state services, avoid, deficits and safeguard the state's fiscal integrity. At a Governor's Conference on State Finances he told a cross - section of citizenry the same things he's been telling the legislature this year—that the treasury surplus will be gone in two years, that new revenues will be needed and that fiscal reform should come now, not when crisis threatens. Romney asked special support Captain of Ship Gives Testimony for his proposed $200,000 citizen commission study of Michigan's continuing financial 'requirements and policy. He reviewed for the conference the alternative spending and revenue projections he prepared for legislators last week- including several possible income tax plans and a potential 1967-68 general fund budget of $925 million compared with his proposed $788 million for 1965-66.

HIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson is known to believe he has all the authority he needs to take any further steps he considers necessary in shaping future U.S. strategy in the war in Viet Nam. As to whether the authority is adequate to cover a Korean- type conflict, with American troops engaged in large-scale ground combat, Johnson takes the position that he has more than enough, but that the question of ground war at present is hypothetical. The President has emphasized to associates, officials said today, that he is not seeking any further expansion of the conflict but rather makes decisions as the need arises to move toward his declared goal of a peaceful settlement based on the security : and independence of South Viet Nam. * * * Questions of presidential powers have arisen at various times as the United States expanded its role in the Vietnamese struggle. They were sharply focused in February when Johnson ordered air strikes against military targets in North Viet Nam board, "We have instructed the C ing. 2.

The judges said Murch's process not only has brought greater for their and again this month when he asked Congress for a special $700-million appropriation. The bombings began as retaliation for stepped-up guerrilla attacks in the South and have continued in an effort to slow! the flow of arms and reinforcements from Communist North Viet Nam to Viet Cong guerrillas in the South. Beyond these immediate objectives, the larger aim of U.S. strategy is to put North Viet Nam under such danger of destruction that its leaders will abandon their support of the Viet Cong and make peace. Three months after the air strikes started, however, U.S. officials say they still have no indication from Hanoi of any interest in peacemaking on terms acceptable to the United States and South Viet Nam. How long the conflict will continue at its present level is unknown and administration officials from Johnson down refuse to speculate on future developments. * * * The United States in the last few weeks heavily strengthened its forces in Viet Nam to a present total of about 45,000 men. No one here will rule out further escalation of the fighting. The source of Johnson's authority to order new actions is said by administration officials to be the constitutional powers vested In the president, particularly his power as commander in chief of the armed forces. Johnson is known to believe that President Harry S Truman had full authority to send U:S forces to fight in Korea in 1950 Like the Southeast Asia conflict, the Korean struggle was an un declared war. Truman galled it a police action under the United Nations.

Joppich said his ship slowed to half-speed, or some 12 miles an hour, shortly before sighting the Norwegian vessel. However, when asked the maximum speed of the Cedarville he said it was about 12 miles an hour. Officials questioned this apparent contradiction and Joppich replied, "I really can't figure this out. I don't know why it should be that way." He said he ordered the engines full speed ahead when he sighted the Topdalsfjord and ordered his ship steered hard to the right in an effort to avoid collision.

' Johnson has a well-worn copy of the August resolution which he carries in his coat pocket and pulls out to read to those who question him about his authority. The wording was worked out jointly by administration officials. There are two key sec* tions. The first says simply Congress "approves and supports the determination of the President, as. commander in chief, to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression." The second section says: "The United States regards as ; vital to its national interest and i to world peace the maintenance of international peace and security in Southeast Asia.

Johnson threw down t gauntlet to the Red Chinese I: a television-radio address or American efforts in Viet Nam. The President prepared his talk for a meeting with editorial cartoonists in the East Room of the White House. ' Repeating his offer to engage in unconditional discussions designed to end the Viet Nam War, Johnson said this would "clearly be in the interest of North Viet Nam." But he said "Communlit China apparently desires the war^to continue, whatever the cost to their allies." ; 'Their target is not merely South Viet Nam. It is Asia. Their objective is not the fulfillment of Vietnamese nationalism. It is to erode and discredit America's ability to prevent Chinese domination over all of Asia," Johnson said. '• "In this they shall never succeed." , , ,:••Johnson began by saying "the war in Viet Nam has many faces"—the first being the face of armed conflict, terror and gunfire, in this connection, he said: "The Communists In Viet Nam are slowly beginning to realize what they once scorned to believe: That we combine unlimited patience with unlimited resources In pursuit of ah unwavering purpose." r The President summed lupftis determination \ by saying; Vyjre will not abandon our ^commitment to South Viet Nam>" ; 'The second face of the < war, he said, is the quest for a political solution.
