Stevenson as chief of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations. Administration officials said that so far no consideration has been given to naming a successor for Stevenson, who died Wednesday in London. But it was expected that Johnson mlghc wish to fill the position soon after the ambassador's funeral because of the pressure of coming events at the United Nations. Francis T. P. Plimpton, No. 2 man in the U.S. delegation, will take over Stevenson's duties temporarily until a successor is named. Johnson's comparison Wednesday of Stevenson with Lincoln in his accomplishments was interpreted as indicating the President looks upon the U.N. assignment as one of the most important world opinion. in shaping Although the field of possible 20 nursing home days. The other Senate provision accepted by the conference authorizes 175 home health visits, whether life exists on the planet most like earth. The fly-by climaxed a 228-day, 325-million-mile curving voyage Mariner had passed beyond Mars and into interplanetary space. Each picture takes eight hours to relay. Two a day are expected. When will it be known if the system worked? "We hope to be able to tell if we've got something before we get the first picture complete," said Dr. Pickering. Mariner keeps the pictures on tape just as videotape for television shows is stored. A timer starts radioing the data to earth as a stream of digits received at tracking stations at Goldstone, Calif., Johannesburg, South Africa and Woomera, Australia, the successors is wide, the numbe of Americans who might rank with Stevenson in world recog nition is not too large. For this reason there was some speculation that the Presi dent might want Secretary o State Dean Rusk to transfer to the U.N. post. Undersecretary of State George W. Ball is another who has had wide contact with top ranking diplomats and heads of other states, as has ambassador at large Llewellyn E. Thompson Jr. Some talk centered on Ralph Bunche who has long represent ed this country in U.N. posts and is one of the first Negroes to ris< to such high rank in U.S. diplo macy. At present he is under secretary of the U.N. Those who thought the Presi dent would be likely to pick a knowledgeable diplomat whc was a close personal friend men tioned the name of Thomas C Mann, Latin-American exper who is undersecretary of stat for economic affairs.

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam AP) — Viet Cong guerrillas tilled two Americans and at east 20 South Vietnamese roops today in an hour-long barrage attack on a government :ommand post 35 miles north of Saigon, eyewitnesses reported. The guerrillas laid down their barrage with 81mm mortars and 57mm recoilless rifles on he Vietnamese unit engaged in road, clearing operation along Route 13 in an area controlled by the Viet Cong, informants at he scene said. There was no ground assault, and all contact apparently was broken off after the barrage ended. A relief force was lifted into he area by helicopter several hours after the pre-dawn battle. It found the bodies of the Vietnamese soldiers and the two Americans scattered around the command post at the edge of ;he tiny village of Bau Bang. One wounded American also was found, and there were at east 20 wounded, witnesses said. The wreckage of at least five armored personnel carriers that had been positioned around the :ommand post lay strewn over the area. Earlier reports said that the government force was hit by a battalion of guerrillas. A battalion usually numbers between 300 and 500 men. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara was en route from Washington to Saigon for a week-long inspection visit. I was learned in Washington that the trip would heave a bearing on a unanimous recommendation by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to boost the strength of U.S forces in South Viet Nam to 179,000 by the end of the year, 104,000 more than the 75,000 now scheduled for Viet Nam. changing we must change our plans," McNamara told a news conference Wednesday.

This recommendation by the Joint Chiefs of Staff will be considered by top U.S. officials in Sources told The Associated Press the joint chiefs would include the remainder of the 1st Infantry Division in the new projections for a buildup to meet growing Communist strength. One brigade of that division landed in Viet Nam this week after traveling from its home base at Ft. Riley, Kan. A buildup as big as 179,000 men could well bring at least a limited mobilization of reservists and National Guardsmen to replace regular troops drawn into the growing conflict in Viet Nam.

The Selective Service spokesman said the Defense Department has given no indication as to the number of men that will be sought in the September draft call. The August call is for 16,500 men, down slightly from the call for 17,100 for July. Other recent monthly calls have been: June 17,000, May 15,100, April 13,700 and March 7,900.

There were tentative plans for a service in the National Cathedral Friday. Among those accompanying Humphrey were Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz, Undersecretary of State George W. Ball and Stevenson's sons, Adlai III, John Fell and Borden, and the wives of Adlai III and John. After the Washington service, the body will be flown to Springfield, 111., to lie in state. It was there Stevenson served as governor of llinois from 1948 until 1952. On Sunday, the body will be taken to Bloomington, 111., where the statesman grew up. Funeral services and burial in the family plot will take place Monday. Leaders across the world mourned the loss of the urbane intellectual whose moving eloquence and sparkling wit made him a noted speaker and formidable debater. President Johnson ordered flags flown at half staff until after the funeral of his longtime friend and political col'eague. "America has lost its most eloquent spirit, its finest voice. The world of freedom and human dignity has lost its most articulate champion," Johnson said. Johnson urged Americans to "weep for one who was a friend and guide to all mankind." "His sudden deach was a blow to us all," said British Prime Minister Harold Wilson, in a message to Johnson. He recalled that Stevenson had visited him on Saturday and "I was impressed once agair by his wit, his wisdom and his friendship for this country." Sorrow spread through the U.N .headquarters in New York. where Stevenson had been the voice of the United States for more than four years.
