Scientists Jubilant Over Picture Signals Received From Mariner 4 Conferees Agree On Hospital Plan WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate-House conferees, settling one big difference over the new Social Security-health care measure, have agreed on a 90-! day hospitalization plan for the' elderly. I The agreement came Wednes-i day at the first conference ses-J sion to iron out variations of bills passed to set up the $7.5 billion program. The basic health plan of the House version provided 60 days hospitalization for each spell of illness, with the patient paying the first $40 of the hospital bill. The Senate changed this' to provide unlimited hospitalization with the patient paying $10 a day toward the cost after the first 60 days. It retained the House plan for the first 60 days. The conferees drew a compromise which keeps the first 60 days with a $40 deductible and adds 30 days with the $10-a-day payment. This, sponsors of the bill said, will cover over 95 per cent of hospital costs for elderly persons. The basic health plan, tied in with Social Security, will be available to the 19 million persons 65 or older. The conferees accepted two other provisions in the Senate bill dealing with nursing home care after a hospital stay and the number of authorized home health visits. The first provision allows 100 days of nursing home care with the patient paying $5 of the cost of each day after 20. The House would have provided as few as 20 nursing home days. The other Senate provision accepted by the conference authorizes 175 home health visits, compared with 100 in the House version. But the conference kept a House requirement that these visits be authorized only aftei a three-day hospital stay. By RALPH DIGHTON PASADENA, Calif. (AP)—Scientists received from Mariner 4 today what they said were just the kind of Mars picture signals they hoped for. Late today or early Friday they plan to make public what should be the first close-up photograph of the unknown planet's surface. It could indicate whether Mars harbors. life, solving a mystery that has intrigued man for ages. Mariner 4 flew past Mars Wednesday night and its signals hinted at trouble in the camera's tape recorder. But this morning, transmitting from beyond Mars en route to an orbit around ( the sun, the windmill - shaped 575 - pound spacecraft began relaying the first of a hoped-for score of photos. ' Signals came in line by line at the rate of one line every 2Vfe minutes. In all, it required 8 hours, 35 minutes, for all 200 lines of the picture to be received. Jubilant scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which built and controlled Mariner, said "the raw data is exactly what we expected." 1 They said the transmissions should produce "a valid picture." Two hours after the start of signals 35 lines had been received, and one expert said a definite pattern was showing. The photo program called for Mariner to take up to 21 pictures as it passed within 5,600 miles of Mars, store them on tape, then play them back starting today. After analyzing this morning's transmissions, experts said they are optimistic about receiving as many-as 20 photos. The pictures were planned to be 100 times better than those from earth telescopes, showing objects as small as IVa miles across, a,nd perhaps indicating whether life exists on the planet most like earth. The fly-by climaxed a 228-day, 325-million-mile curving voyage from earth. The spacecraft both ' Wednesday and today was about Johnson Is Expected to Name Successor to Stevenson Soon By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Politicians speculated today that President Johnson may want to choose an American with world standmg to succeed Adlai E. 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 might 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 in shaping world opinion.

"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.

'Mariner gave .an additional successors is wide, the number 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 represented this country in U.N. posts and is one of the first Negroes to rise 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 who was a close personal friend men tioned the name of Thomas C Mann, Latin-American expert who is undersecretary of state for economic affairs. Many members of Congres doubt that Johnson will choose one of his close unofficial advis ers for the U.N. job.

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam AP) — Viet Cong guerrillas (tilled two Americans and at east 20 South Vietnamese roops today in an hour-long >arrage attack on a government command 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 the 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 command 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.

HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation's military chiefs have recommended unanimously that in the strength of U.S. forces South Viet Nam be boosted to 179,000 men by the end of the year, it was learned today. This would be more than 100,000 above the 75,000 U.S. force i projections now scheduled to be in South Viet Nam. This recommendation by the Joint Chiefs of Staff will be considered by top U.S. officials in the light of what Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara determines during his week-long inspection visit to Viet Nam. McNamara left Wednesday night. Sources told The Associated Press the joint chiefs would include the remainder of the 1st Infantry Division in the new for a buildup to meet growing Communist trength.

He said this would apply even in an all-out mobilization — and nobody is talking about all-out mobilization." "We can load 'em in faster ;han they can take 'em until they get geared-up," he added. 'We can handle without any difficulty a situation calling for larger draft calls than the buildup in 1961-62 during the Berlin crisis, when the monthly calls got as high as 25,000 and were at the 20,000 level a couple of months." Asked if any moves are under way to tighten up on draft deferments, the spokesman said "none whatsoever." The Selective Service spokes man said the Defense Depart ment has given no indication a to the number of men that wil be sought in the Septembe draft call. The August call is for 16,50 men, down slightly from the cal for 17,100 for July. Other recen monthly calls have been: June 17,000, May 15,100, April 13,70f and March 7,900.

They have submitted to de- ense officials tentative estimates totaling more than 200,00 citizen servicemen. The breakdown: About 120,000 guardsmen and reservists, 'including six infan- ry brigades.

He was 65. : ••: The- coffin was removed from a catafalque at the U.S. Embassy for the trip to the airport, where President Johnson's personal plane was waiting. Humphrey, Stevensons' sons and the U.S. delegation had arrived in Johnson's plane three hours earlier. Stevenson's flag-draped coffin up is still in the early stages and that the totals of men the services have estimated they would need to back up the regular forces could be scaled down. In the Berlin crisis four years ago, President John F. Kennedy ordered about 150,000 National Guardsmen and reservists to active duty. They served for 10 months. A possible callup may hinge on the McNamara mission, as will the future shape and size of the U.S. commitment in Viet Nam. McNamara acknowledged at a news conference Wednesday that U.S. plans for committing troops have been fluid and have been altered repeatedly by events. The situation is changing and as it changes we must change our plans," he said. "At any given time we assign forces to South Viet Nam in relation to a military plan that has been established and approved by the appropriate constitutional authorities. "That plan remains in effect and we supply forces in accordance with it until the situation changes. Changes in the situation are beyond our control."

"His sudden deach was a blow to us all," said British Prime Minister Harold Wilson, in a message to Johnson.
