SINGLE COPY 10 CENTS, Dom 1 U.S. Gives OAS (6 Million to Pay Workers Move Puts Pressure On Dominican Junta By LOUIS UCHITELLE SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — The United States gave the Organization of American States a new lever against the bankrupt Dominican Junta today by making it paymaster for government em- ployes. OAS Secretary-General Jose A. Mora announced that Washington has given his organization $6 million to pay the salaries of government workers loyal to either the junta or rebel factions. ' Mora said troops from the newly created Inter-American Force have been stationed inside the bank to prevent the junta from using the funds to pay salaries. ' * * * No reason for the move was given, but it was presumably aimed at pressuring the junta into negotiating with the rebels to form a coalition government. An attempt by special envoys of President Johnson to get the rebel and junta factions to set up a coalition headed by the former agriculture minister Antonio Guzman, has been rejected by the junta president, Oen. Antonio Imbert Barrera Inbert denounced the plan as a "frank intervention in the internal affairs" of the Dominican Republic. Imbert assailed the coalition formula before several thousand cheering followers Thursday at a rally in front of the National Congress Palace in||8anto Do- rnrnl^'" ~&w& k *>-x — Imbert accused the OAS of exceeding its authority in occupying the government's Central Bank without permission of his junta. * * * Imbert told U.S. officials Wednesday the junta needed $3.5 million to meet government payrolls in the next two weeks. Since he took over a little more than two weeks ago, the United States has given the Dominican government $3,95 million to keep it from collapsing. The money came from pesos accumulated by the United States in Dominican payments for U.S. supplies Economists reported that with no revenue coming in, the $3.95 .million has been used up. President Johnson announced that he is issuing orders to withdraw 1,700 more U.S. troops from the Dominican Republic.

(AP) — A bad battery cell today forced postponement of a practice flight for next week's orbital mission b y astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White. Officials said there was a possibility the trouble could delay the June 3 launching. Mission director Christopher C. Kraft'Jr., said a decision whether to postpone the astronauts' trip would be made late Saturday or Sunday after the battery had been changed and several evalution tests had been made. At %6fMftM< ^'Agency headquarters in Washington, however, it was indicated that there would be a postponement. The agency announced that a news conference would be held ! at Cape Kennedy at 4 p.m. EST on "flight plan changes." Information officers declined to explain the significance of this wording but conceded that it indicated that changes in the Gemini 4 flight plan would be outlined. The battery problem turned up today shortly after McDivitt and White began running through a rehearsal for their four-day orbital trip. The battery is located in an equipment section attached to the base of the Gemini 4 spacecraft. It is one of six similar batteries which provide power to vehicle systems during flight. Each of the six batteries has enough power for 400 hours, so with one out the spacecraft still would have 2,000 hours of power. The flight requires only about 100 hours, but officials said they want to be on the safe side in case several should fail in flight. batteries 042 troops.

"This will require disconnecting several bolts and electrical connections." Kraft said that it was hoped that the battery could be replaced tonight and the simulated flight rescheduled Saturday.

Romney Says Tax Reform Not Dead By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP)—Gov. George Romney, despite legislative action and supporters' pessimism, declared consider year." today that "I do not tax reform dead this He conceded tax reform apparently would not come at the current sitting of the legislature but said he hasn't given up on fiscal revision at a fall session. He would not speculate on whether he might summon legislators back to the Capitol if they don't come of their own volition. Romney, stressing the need for fiscal reform throughout a news conference, said "I knew before the session opened what some are just learning — that presumed support for tax reform by the Democratic legislature is just not there." He again defended his refusal to present a specific reform program. "If I were only interested in playing politics, I would have proposed a program and then run around the state blaming the legislature for not passing it "But that would be costly for the state. I'm not interested in creating a political issue. I'm interested in results."

Nations Shy Away From Act CAIRO (AP)—The 12 other na- Eight of the occupants were killed outright and the ninth died three hours later in the base hospital. Aviators from the company rushed to the scene and pulled the three injured men from the wreckage. Wreckage was strewn over a large area. First reports said one of the helicopters was returning from Saigon with an Army helicopter crewman who had been injured several days ago in the foot by a Viet Cong bullet. He was returning to his unit. The other ship reportedly was leaving the helicopter pad outside the Vietnamese 3rd Corps headquarters. "They met at the same place," an eyewitness said. The helicopters collided about 50 feet up. One burst into flames. The other appeared to break up in the air, then caught fire. On May 16 a series of explosions smashed through lines of U.S. and Vietnamese bombers at the other side of the Bien Hoa base, killing 26 Americans and injuring more than 100. U.S. officials said that also was an accident, but an investigation is still under way. U.S. and Vetnamese air force planes pounded three radar sites and one ferry in North Viet Nam with bombs and rockets today. Heavy antiaircraft fire was reported at some points, a spokesman said, but all planes returned safely. Twelve U.S. Thunderchiefs hit the Hon Nieu and Hon Matt radar sites, located about 10 miles offshore 130 miles north of the border, with over 30 tons of 750- pound bombs. A spokesman said heavy damage was inflicted to both sites, but that smoke and fires in the area prevented further damage assessments. Attacking with mortars and recoilless rifles, Viet Cong forces overran a government outpost 15 miles southwest of Saigon, killed 24 regional force troops and wounded 12. U.S. military spokesmen said an unknown number of regional troops also were missing following the attack on the outpost at Mea Thanh Ha. One Viet Coevering, deputy commissioner of the State Revenue Department, convinced legislators the bill, sponsored by Rep. E. D. O'Brien, D - Detroit, would have imposed the tax on all income over $200 for every self - employed grocery store owner, barber or cab driver. Repair amendments, inserting a sliding scale of net-to-gross income, were offered. But after hurried conferences, it was decided to hold the bill, and another in the package, over for final action today. The final deadline for passage of bills in the house of origin comes at midnight. Said Karoub: "The way it stands now, every ma and pa grocery store, every gas station owner and barber, and every other self-employed person will incorporate and py himself a salary equal to the amount of his net income in order to void the tax." Otherwise, he added, the owner would pay the tax, while his employes got off free. He gave this example: A gas station owner with one employe earns $10,000 a year. He pays the employe $5,000 upon which there is no income tax, then pockets the remaining $5,000 only to find he must pay the flat five per cent. "I'm firmly convinced not a single member of the House, not the sponsor, not the Revenue commission, not the tax experts, not anybody, realized what this bill would do," Karoub said. Democrats ran into trouble with their fiscal program earlier Thursday with a revolt within 7 to 9 cents per pack and providing for implied consent to drunken driving tests. Bills providing for county rule and agricultural marketing acts won approval Thursday. A home rule bill, defeated consent bill out of committee.

Once home rule was disposed of Thursday, the lengthiest debate concerned a bill which would have permitted municipalities to waive the one-year residence requirement when hiring policemen or firemen. Some Democrats tried to win -amendments prohibiting use of the waiver if a municipality's salary schedule did not match the area average. When the amendment failed they helped defeat the bill by two votes. The Senate approved 24-8 a bill prohibiting the Conservation Department from blocking extension of M-107 through to the west boundary of Porcupin? Mountain State Park in the western Upper Peninsula. Backers of the bill said Conservation Department policy against extension of the highway was hurting the area's economic development. Opponents said it would harm the wilderness park. of the penalty provisions of the Hutchinson Act against striking public employes, a 30-year-old bounties on red foxes, bobcats forces .of and coyotes, and a bill estab- lising an Indian affairs commission.

It would apply to those pickers who work on a contractural, piece work basis. The tabulation of popular votes would be speeded up under terms of a bill, sponsored by Rep. Richard A.

Committee Concludes Hearing On Communism in Illinois CHICAGO (AP) — The House Committee on Un-American Activities has concluded three days of hearings on communism in Illinois, marked by an abundance of demonstrations and a lack of testimony. Only two witnesses, both FBI informers, testified. Nine others pleaded constitutional protection against testifying or walked out of the hearing room. During the final day of hearings Thursday, police and federal marshals arrested 38 demonstrators, some for singing in the hearing room, others, for raising a commotion outside the building. Two demonstrators suffered head cuts trying to break through police lines. Rep. Edwin E. Willis, D-La., committee chairman, said the committee had received a rounded picture of Communist activities. Willis said the committee had acquired additional information of Communist operations among youths and peace groups and of agitation- in the housing field and in civil rights groups. Willis said committee contempt action would be recommended against two witnesses who walked out Thursday after refusing to testify. One of the two witnesses, Dr Jeremiah Stamler, 45, prominent heart disease specialist. was characterized by the committee counsel as "one of those in charge of setting up the Communist party underground" in the early 1950s. The committee counsel, Alfred M. Nittle. raised the point while questioning another witness, Laura Bough, 34, ol San Francisco. She refused to answer. When Dr. Stamler went on the witness stand, he gave his name and address, but refused further testimony. An assistant, to Dr, Stamler ir the research division of the Chi cago Board of Health, Yolands Hall, also walked out after de dining to answer questions.

Michigan's 30-year-old bounties on red foxes, bobcats and coyotes The repeal failed every measures, which year in recent addition to 1,600 he said been withdrawn over the two days. .••••.• i And Johnson said he has instructed Lt. Gen. Bruce Palmar, commander of U.S. .forces in the Dominican Republic, "to discuss possible further withdrawals" with Gen. Hugo Panasco Alvim of Brazil, commander of the Organization of American States forces in the revolt-torn Caribbean country. Johnson said the necessity for quick action is one of '"the new realities" made apparent by the Dominican situation. The President has been criticized in some quarters for not advising o t h er hemisphere nations before announcing his decision April 28 to send military forces to the Dominican Republic. Today, in discussing the Communist threat within the hemisphere, Johnson said: "We know that when a Communist group seeks to exploit misery, the entire free inter- American system is put in deadly danger. We also know that these dangers can be found today in many of our lands. There is no trouble anywhere these evil forces will not try to turn to their advantage. We can expect more efforts at triumph by terror and conquest through chaos." . The President, speaking of U.S. goals, said, "We want for the peoples of this hemisphere only what they want for themselves —liberty, Justice, dignity, a better life." Johnson said that more than a few agitators were needed "to bring on the' tragic and cruel bloodshed in the Dominican Republic." He said they had "additional help and a deeper cause." The President associated the "deeper cause" with areas where the poor and the oppressed find difficulty entering tt" gates of opportunity. In this situation, he said, the United States must try to "narrow the gap between the rich nations and the poor—and between the right people and the poor within each nation." Johnson called this "the heart of the purpose of the United States." In urging new international machinery, Johnson gave no details of what he had in mind. However, it was believed he felt that the multlnatlon fpjrce _. . .... i now trying to keep peace "and The coyote bill passed 63-, promote stability in the Domon- ican Republic might serve as a precedent for inter - American efforts if other nations face similar upheavals.

The bills would repeal the $5 bounty on fox and bobcat pelts and the $15 and $20 bounties on female and male coyotes. Wolf bounties were repealed in 1959 when Michigan's rapidly diminishing wolf population was placed under state protection. The state bounties last paid year, $254,000 backers the repealer measures said, and $4 million from the game and fish protection fund since bounties v/ent into effect in 1935. Rep.
