LBJ Asks Highway Beautification Funds One American Dies in Viet Cong Ambush Another Wounded, Third Is Missing By PETER ARNETT SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — One American was killed, another was wounded and a third was missing today following a Viet Cong ambush 60 miles northwest of Saigon. In the air war, U.S. warplanes battered military installations and transport facilities in North Viet Nam on a round-the-clock basis. The Americans were ambushed Tuesday as they were traveling in a jeep from the Special Forces camp at Ben So; to Tay Ninh. An irregular South Vietnam ese strike force made contad with the Viet Cong, and a re gional company accompanied by two American advisers wa sent into the area. In the firefight that followed 11 Viet Cong were reported killed. South Vietnamese losses were four killed and four wounded. The American who was killed an enlisted man, was the 386th American combat death in South Viet Nam since December 1961. This is one more than the American battle dead in the Spanish- American war.

Their place is being filled by Latin-American soldiers arrivng for the new peace force of the Organization of American States. Within a week the Latin Americans in the Inter-American Force will total about 1,700 men. An equal number of Americans are expected to leave the divided country. Fighting in Santo Domingo between troops of the military- civilian junta and rebel forces has come to a halt. But U.S. officials admitted that a political solution was not in sight due to the junta's insistence that the rebels surrender and that it become the country's only government. McGeorge Bundy, President Johnson's special envoy, was returning to Washington today after 10 days of intensive but futile efforts to bring the rival factions together. About all the two sides have Rusk Believes Reds May Have 2nd Installation Near Hanoi WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dean Rusk said today there may be a second Soviet installation in the vicinity of Hanoi, North Viet Nam, armed with what he termed missile-associated equipment. He told a news conference this represents a deepening of the Soviet involvement in support of Communist North Viet Nam. Rusk did not go into detail that extremists or Communists— when asked about reports there are more than one surface-to-air missile installations near the North Vietnamese capital. But he acknowledged that "there may be a second site in the immediate Hanoi area. We be Impoverished with less than yiU VCtl O.

Rusk said that "we understand in one that there is present missile - associated equipment." Rusk also said the Communist threat in the Dominican Republic has been "very substantially reduced." He also foresaw a further pullout of U.S. forces from Santo Domingo soon. His generally favorable rejport on the Dominican situation came four weeks to the day after President Johnson first sent Marines into Santo Domingo.

An undisclosed number of Robert Waldron, R- Pointe, minority leader, FlOSs hit two North Vietnamese river boats, three barracks and eight bridges near Vinh, accord- Ing to initial reports. A U.S. spokesman said all planes returned safely despite heavy antiaircraft fire over Vinh. Navy planes made raids during the night. Twelve planes from the carrier Midway bombed a barracks area at Quan Lan, 150 miles south of Hanoi. Pilots reported barracks buildings and supply and storage structures were 70 per cent destroyed. Ten planes from the carrier Coral Sea dropped flares to illuminate targets in three separate sorties. Pilots of two Al Sky- raiders reported they hit two trucks on Route 7 and another on Route 116, about 125 miles south of Hanoi. Despite antiaircraft fire, all planes returned safely to the carriers, spokesmen said. U.S. authorities in Saigon said cast the lone dissenting vote. He protested that the bill would cost the state a possible $90 million over present expenditures, meaning new taxes or fiscal reform. "I have no real, sincere ndication from you (Speaker Joseph Kowalski, D - Detroit) ,hat we intend to use anything other than the present state surplus to finance the bill," he said. Rep. Mrs. Lucille McCollugh, investigations were on to identify four attacked a South still going planes that Vietnamese army post just south of the border with North Viet Nam Tuesday. U. S. military spokesmen and the Vietnamese commander at Da Nang had said the plane were Communist MIGs. Bui American military authorities in Saigon said they were U.S jets that had gotten off course. Five Vietnamese were wound ed in the raid. On the political front, dispute developed over the ap pointment of two new ministers to Premier Phan Huy Quat's three-month-old government. Reliable sources said Chief of See AMBUSH—Page 2. chairman of the tion Committee, House Educa- sponsored the bill. She said "the state is now closer to paying its fair share of school costs. We are moving up toward 50 per cent of the cost for the first time in years, taking the burden off the property tax payer. The trend in recent year has been toward a 60-40 split between the state and local units," she said. Rep. David Holmes, D-Detroit a Negro, tried to amend the bill to conform to federal school aid regulations to. withhold aid to districts in which racial or religious discrimination is prac- would get enough additional funds to enable them to spend about $380 per pupil providing they are making a total effort" in taxation to meet the state average of 14.5 mills. This would cost the state $23.25 million next year. The bill would pay 75 per cent of allowable costs for special education and transportation 'to encourage local programs to educate exceptional boys and girls," Mrs. McCollough said. The bill also allocates $4 million in special aid to school districts "educating large numbers of disadvantage^ youth." It also raises the deductible millage factor from 4.25 mills to 4.6 mills. Deductible millage is the factor used to spread school aid on a relatively equal basis to both rich and poor districts. Republicans agreed on is that any new government should be strongly anti- Communist and should not be a right-wing dictatorship. U.S. officials said OAS Secretary-General Jose A. Mora would now have, charge of negotiations. Deputy U.S. Defense Secretary Cyrus Vance, who came here with Bundy, is remaining to help Mora. Bundy and his team of negotiators have been trying to promote a coalition government headed by Antonio Guzman, agriculture minister in the government of exiled President Juan Bosch. The rebels have welcomed the idea, but the junta has rebuffed it. The junta president, Gen. An- Johnson said that in addition to saving lives of foreigners he wanted to prevent a Communist takeover. Reporting today with "considerable satisfaction on what has been accomplished so far," the secretary of state said: — The threat of a takeover by has been very substantially reduced although not completely eliminated. The threat has been reduced because it is now clear to everyone that the Dominican solution will not be through violence but through democratic processes. — The Brazilian commander of the inter-American force at Santo Domingo will be reviewing his needs and Rusk hopes a substantial number of the ap proximately 21,000 American troops still there can be withdrawn soon. However, some will stay on for some time under the Organization of American States banner. — A number of the Western Hemisphere's foreign ministers will meet in Washington Thursday to review the Dominican situation and consider, among other things, what arrangement might be made for a standby inter - American force which could be rushed to trouble spots while the OAS is going through its consultation process. — "In Paris they might give more attention to the fact that he countries of the hemisphere re dealing with this problem.

His amendment was withdrawn because he did not "want to jepoardize the bill" in a floor fight.

VACCARO WASHINGTON (AP) — House passage of a one-year, $3.37-bil lion foreign aid authorization bill has set the stage for a show down with the Senate over the future course of the program. Senate leaders said they wil push for early passage of a dif ferent version — one which ex tends the program for tw years, at $3.35 billion a year — and calls for termination of foi eign aid in its present form aft er that. The House passed its one-yea measure — with no provisio for termination — by a vote of 249 to 148 Tuesday. It did so after rejecting, 219 to 177, a Republican attempt to cut $131 million from the development loan section. Sen. J. W.

The negotiations for a coalition regime are a difficult process, but most Dominicans believe that a democratic —nol extremist — solution is the answer. Rusk devoted • his opening statement at the 40-minute ses sion with newsmen — his firs since March 24 — to the Domin ican crisis. Rusk denied that the United States failed to consult the OAS quickly enough before landing American troops at Santo Domingo. He said the U.S. government had to act urgently and its consultation with the OAS was prompt after the troop order was issued. In connection with the contention of some critics that U. S. intervention benefited one Dominican side or the other, Rusk By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tornadoes, some causing p- perty losses, moved into Missouri, Wisconsin and the Chicago area today, after a night of violent storms and a number of tornadoes in the Great Plains.

And he sought fund! lor highway beauttllcation. In a letter to officials of the Senate and House, Johnson put forth these sweeping and conf-j troversial proposals one day- after the close of a White House conference on natural beauty. The most controversial of the presidential recommendations was his plan to control outdoor advertising. "In general," he told Congress, "such controls would re? quire that no advertising sign* be erected in areas within 1,000 feet of the pavement and visible; to the passing motorists. Exist-:, ing signs would have to be : removed by July 1, 1070." , , Johnson said that, If Congresa agrees, no states could receive federal highway aid after Jani. 1, 1968 unless they control billboards along Interstate and primary roads — the most heavily traveled highways. Billboards still would be permitted, however, along routes zoned or used primarily for commercial or industrial purposes. : In proposing controls over Junkyards, Johnson said: "I recommend that as a condition of receiving federal aid, states must exercise control along the entire Interstate and primary systems.

The President said some states might lack adequate police powers to control outdoor advertising and junkyards. "Where this Is the case," he said, "the federal government would be authorized to pay its share of the cost of purchase or condemnation." in submitting a package of four bills Johnson was doing just what the 1,000 delegates to the natural beauty conference wanted. Johnson, who called the two- day conference, wound it up with a big reception at the White House and a lengthy speech pronouncing his own dedication to the cause of natural beauty. -Chairman Laurance Rockefeller and four panelists had reported to the President some of the scores of recommendations for expansion of scenic highways, protection of waters, reclaiming lands and wildlife and a need to educate Americans on nature's beauties. Johnson said he wants governors to follow up with similar conferences in every state. Two are scheduled in California and Massachusetts. The President said he aimed "to keep the fruits of this enormous effort from being dissipated." "I intend to make full use of your work," he told the delegates at the White House, "and I hope local oflclals in every state will do the same." Johnson told about his blltof, saying: "We have not been idle while you were working." He said he was determined that the government be "a model and • pacesetter in this field."
