Dominican Cease-Fire Appeal Rejected Senate to Vote On Amendment To Rights Bill Proposal Designed To Mollify Liberals WASHINGTON (AP) —The Senate votes today on a proposal that Congress declare the poll tax has been used in some states to deny Negroes their voting rights. Offered by Republican and Democratic leaders as an amendment to the voting-rights bill, it is designed to mollify liberals who tried to have poll taxes for state and local elections flatly outlawed in the pending legislation. They already have been outlawed in federal elections by constitutional amendment. Sen. A. Willis Robertson, D- Va., led a blistering attack on the proposed amendment, accusing Senate leaders of "marching down the hill" after beating down the attempt to ban the poll tax. * * * Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach and some strong supporters of the measure have said to outlaw state poll taxes by statute could be unconstitutional. They proposed instead that the voing bill provide for a quick court test of the tax. The amendment for a congressional declaration is sponsored by Sens. Mike Mansfield and Everett M. Dirksen, the Democratic and Republican leaders. It would declare the constitutional right to vote is denied or abridged in certain states by making poll-tax payments a condition to vote. Voting on the amendment was expected in midafternoon and despite some stormy vocal criticism, it appeared certain of adoption. Meanwhile, Rep. William M. McCulloch of Ohio, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said the way the bill now stands it could produce illegal ballots that might sow the seeds of revolution in the United States. McCulloch is backing a voting measure generally in line with one proposed by House Republican leaders. This would guarantee voting rights anywhere iu the nation where qualified people have been kept from casting a ballot by racial discrimination, he said. * * * "It has no tricky triggering provision," McCulloch asserted. He also claimed it would make sure only legal ballots are counted in an election. The administration's bill, he said, would not. He is concerned some voters might be challenged on grounds of residency or other technicalities after having been registered by federal registrars. Without legislative safeguards to make sure only qualified people vote, McCulloch said the way would be open for election of officials — even a president — by votes which later could prove invalid. Chief feature of the voting- jights bill is provision for the suspension of literacy tests and the appointment of federal registrars in wide areas of the South, but much of the debate has swirled around the poll-tax issue. Mansfield was counting on the amendment to unite the bill's supporters and clear the way for passage of the bill late next week. He said he plans to file a petition Thursday or Friday to try to shut off debate. r**. ROYAL VISITOR—Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by W.

The bill, Katzenbach said, is designed "to help the states protect themselves against the unchecked flood of mail-order weapons to residents whose purposes might not be responsible, or even lawful." The principal provision of the bill would prohibit unlicensed persons from transporting, ship- Signs Point to Rough Battle on Labor Proposals President Might Get Caught in Crossfire By JOHN BECKLER Vietnamese Planes Kill 85 Viet Cong in Attack Today The spokesman said a U.S. | hours after a six-day suspension forward air controller observed | O f air strikes against the Com'- tlie Viet Cong assembling in company strength in a mountain munlst North.

Said Katzenbach: "It is impossible for me to understand the NRA's view of what battle is being fought and what the stakes are. in my view we are all joined in. a nationwide battle — a battle against rape and robbery and muggings and murder — and the stakes are public order and safety for every citizen. "In a country in which more than half the 8,500 murders each year are committed by firearms, many of them assuredly obtained by mail congressional action is called for now," the attorney general said. He contended the NRA's argument that the measure could lead to elimination of "the private ownership of all guns" is "not conceivable.

The proposed legislation would require retail gun dealers to limit sales of hand guns to residents of their states, raise the annual license fee for dealers and manufacturers and give the secretary of the Treasury discretion on who should be licensed to manufacture, import or deal in deadly weapons covered by the Federal Firearms A «f ACL. Katzenbach also referred to the mail-order, Italian-made rifle used by Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. "As long as I live," he said, "I can never forget that it was a mail-order rifle— sent to a post office box, that had been rented under an assumed name, by a man with an established record of defection, and mental instability—that killed President Kennedy." Kennedy's brother— Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y. — is a cosponsor of the legislation and is to testify Thursday. to 4.5 million workers, requiring payment of double time for some overtime, providing federal benefits for the long-time unemployed and repealing section 14B of the Taft Hartley Act. That's the section that permits states to outlaw the union shop in collecive bargaining agreements. Nineteen states have such laws. Organized labor has made repeal of 14B its No. 1 political goal, and it can't be too happy over the way Johnson made the request to Congress. He used hundreds of words arguing for his minimum wage, double time and unemployment insurance proposals, but devoted only the last sentence of his message to 14B. He was recommending its repeal, he said, "with the hope of reducing conflict in our national labor policy." Any such reduction will come only after greatly increased conflict in Congress, particularly the Senate. If anything can revive the Republican-Southern Democrat coalition that civil rights legislation has sundered, it is a proposal to repeal 14B. Ten of the 19 states with laws banning the union shop are in the South. The rest are in Republican strongholds in the West and Midwest. Although labor strategists claim a bare majority of the Senate in favor of repeal, getting the bill to a vote over the determined opposition of such a sizable opposition is bound to be extremely difficult. In the House, with its big Democratic majority and its debate-limiting rules, victory is more likely. "But Johnson is going to have to get in and fight if he really wants it," said a Democrat who will have to help handle the bill. The prospect for Johnson's other proposals is not much better. Congress showed no enthusiasm for the double-time or minimum-wage-extension provisions last year, and bills for federal unemployment insurance standards have a long history of failure. Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz launches the fight for repeal of 14B before a House Labor subcommittee Monday. It could be the start of a long, hot summer for Johnson in his relations with Congress.

The easing is attributed to: the Arab world split over Tunisian President , Habib Bourgui- ba's moderate views toward Israel, successful Israeli armed attacks on Syrian projects to divert the Jordan River, and Israel's armed forces — now completely mechanized and strengthened with American antiaircraft missiles and other new weapons. 'Premier Levi Eshkol in an Independence Day speech May 6 cautioned his countrymen, however, that nothing as yet has happened to justify any slackening in Israel's efforts to "create the military potential required to avert war and repel aggression." These efforts, he said, should be continued "much' as we should like to draw encouragement from every manifestation which may hold out hope for a change toward peaceful coexistence" with the Arabs. Eshkol and other leaders warned the Arabs after they announced plans to divert the Jordan River to prevent the Israelis from getting their share of the water. "Any violation of our water rights will be interpreted as a violation of our territory," said Eshkol. There seems little doubt the Israelis will continue to smash at any Arab construction equipment used in the Jordan diversion scheme. Two such Israeli attacks — the most recent last Thursday— on Syrian diversion operations near the Israeli border have been termed successful here. Israeli artillery and tank fire hit bulldozers and other equipment. The first attack in March halted diversion operations. When the Syrians resumed work, the Israelis hit the site again. Also in their favor, say Israelis, is the disunity in Arab . lanKS. Income $230.9 Million LANSING (AP) — State Treasury* income during April was $230.9 million and outgo was $210.3 million. The treasury balance at the end of the month was $278.01 million. The spokesman said 30 Sky- hawks, Skyraiders and Skywar- riors, supported by 10 F4 and F8 Crusaders, pounded the targets for 45 minutes with missiles, rockets and 50 tons of bombs. Pilots reported light ground fire and said no enemy planes were sighted. All the planes returned to the carrier safely, the spokesman said. U.S. Marines carried out their first amphibious assault in South Viet Nam today, moving across the Ca De River to hit Viet Cong-held Truong Minh village. A burst of machine-gun fire wounded one Marine in the operation 9 miles from Da Nang, but the guerrilla fled and no further contact was madet In the village, the Marines found only 12 women and children and one old man. There were many booby traps, trenches and bunkers. At least two U.S. Marine jet squadrons based in the Philippines have been put on the alert for duty in Viet Nam, possibly this month, a high military source reported. They will bring U.S. Marine strength in South Vieet Nam to nearly 16,000 men. Vietnamese sources said a six-battalion operation against the Viet Cong near the border with North Viet Nam was called off today without making contact with the Communists. The operation started Tuesday. It was reported bad weather hampered air strikes accompanying it. Since the air strikes so far have not done sufficient damage United Nations' ] t, Request Turned Down by Junta Rebels Are Willing To Consider Truce By ROBERT BERRELLEZ ;. SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — The Dominican junta, scenting victory in the civil war, turned thumbs down Tuesday night on a United Nations appeal for a cease-fire. The rebels said they were witting. Jose Antonio Mayobre of Venezuela, U.N. Secretary-General U Thant's envoy, told special Dominican a news conference to the North bring them to Vietnamese to the conference table, there was speculation that the raiders may seek more important targets, possibly in the industrialized Hanoi-Hai- phong region. So far the bombings have been directed against military barracks, ammunition depots, air fields, bridges and road and railway traffic. The northernmost point hit was a bridge at Dong Phuong, 65 miles south of Hanoi, on April 3. The air strikes against the Communist North were resumed after a six-day pause during which the United States reportedly sent out feelers to North Viet Nam for peace talks. Hanoi evidently rejected them. State Department spokesman Robert J. McCloskey said in Washington the United States was disappointed at the failure of North Viet Nam to respond in any way to the suspension. "If the other side saw anything in it," McCloskey said, that Gen. Antonio Imberl Barrera, the junta chief, "indicated he thought he was winning and therefore could not talk of a cease-fire." Mayobre said Col. Francisco Caamano Deno, the insurgent leader, had expressed willingness to accept a truce. imbert's forces were pressing a tank-led offensive to smash rebel pockets north of th U.S.- controlled east - west corridor across Santo Domingo. if * * Commodore Francisco J. Rivera Caminero, the armed fprces secretary, claimed the drive was progressing steadily. But there were signs the junta forces were running into stiff resistance on the southern flank of the eastward push. Sharp explosions jolted the capital waterfront arousing fear that Tuesday, the Junta troops were shelling the rebels' main stronghold in the downtown area. The junta blamed the blasts on dynamiting .by U.S. troops in an area east of the Ozama River, but this could not be confirmed by U.S. authorities. A U.S. attempt to woo away the junta's military support failed when the Dominican armed forces refused to abandon Imbert. The United States reportedly hoped to. force the junta out to set the stage for formation of "a coalition government acceptable to both the rebels and the military forces opposing them. Rejecting what he called official U.S. pressure, Rivera Caminero said the military would only accept a new government of 'national harmony" composed of the junta and "all democratic parties in the country." ; The rebels have refused to participate in any government with the junta. Two of President Johnson* special envoys, Undersecretary of state Thomas C. Mann arid former ambbassador John Bartlow Martin, returned to Washington Tuesday night. * * * ' ;; .

WHALEN NEW YORK (AP) — Silver cartwheels are scheduled to roll out of the Denver Mint soon, but they'll probably roll right into the pockets of souvenir hunters and speculators and never be seen again.

Benjamin Stack, a partner in Stack's Coin Co. and a member of the U.S. Assay Commission, said: "I'm absolutely stunned Those silver dollars will never even get into the collectors' hands, much less the public's. The speculation will be tremen- dous. It will be an absolute mess." The speculators would be betting on an increase in the price of silver or in the numismatic value of the dollars. The Silver Users Association, an industry group, also believes that the new silver dollars would disappear immediately. Even silver producer interests indicated surprise at the order for minting them. The Treasury and Federal Reserve System said they have not yet worked out a plan for distribution. Coins normally go through the Federal Reserve System to the nation's banks. President Johnson gave the go-ahead to make the silver dollars over the weekend, noting that Congress appropriated $600,000 for the minting last year and adding: "It has always been my intention to carry out the will of Congress as soon as feasible." The silver-producing states of the West traditionally have been vocal in demands for silver dollars. Silver, however, is in such short supply that even if the United States eliminated silver from all coins, industrial demand would still far outstrip the production of mines. The government's dwindling stockpile has been filling the supply gap. The Treasury is expected to disclose soon its recommendations for reducing or eliminating silver in dimes, quarters and half-dollars. The Mint turned out more than 855 million cartwheels between 1794 and 1935, but none is in general circulation today. Coin dealers ask as much as $1.50 for even the most common specimens. Johnson directed the Denver Mint to produce the silver dollars by June 30. Fern Miller, superintendent of the mint there, said she doesn't know yet when production will start. tp camouflage American intensification of the war and to deceive world opinion.

The four points include withdrawal of U.S. troops from Viet Nam. Senior Western officials in London said the United States made its peace approach to Hanoi through a third country. The country was not identified, but there was speculation that the British consul-general in Hanoi was the go-between. The officials reported the United States suggested the air attacks would be halted indefinitely if Hanoi made some comparable gesture. Presumably Washington would have _ Ellsworth Bunker told the OAS Council in Washington "there is reason to believe" that able men are available to serve in a new Dominican government which would exclude Communists and other extremist elements. At U.N. headquarters in New York, the Security Council was scheduled to hear today from Ruben Brache, representative of the rebels, and Guaroa Velazquez, representing the junta.
