I<A¥ WASHINGTON (AP) —President Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara sat down today for a full-dress conference on Viet Nam, sur- •ounded by a top administration officials. McNamara returned today rom Viet Nam, and told newsmen the ratio of Viet Cong to government forces is "totally unacceptable." He appeared ready to recommend an increase in U.S. strength in South Viet Nam lo offset the ratio. But rhe White House said today's meeting was not a decision-making session but one of deliberations. Press secretary Bill B. Moyers said it may be some time, perhaps a matter of days, before the deliberations and discussions are finished and any announcements of results can be made For the time being the question of increased U.S. military reinforcements in Viet Nam and the possible expansion of the draft and calling up of Reserves were left in suspension. Vietnamese Conflict Poses Critical Question for LBJ By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER | WASHINGTON (AP) — Perhaps the most critical question the Vietnamese conflict poses to President Johnson today is how to send about 100,000 more U.S. troops into South Viet Nam in the next several months without taking over the anti-Communist war. For years the official U.S. stance in the Southeast Asian conflict has been one of advising and assisting the South Vietnamese forces in the defense of their own land.

Military officials said South Vietnamese forces suffered 735 casualties during the week, including 240 killed, 340 wounded and 155 missing or captured. Viet Cong losses were 419 killed and 28 captured, the officials said. The United States kept up its air war against North Viet Nam today while scattered action was reported on the ground in South Viet Nam. One U.S. Air Force plane crashed at sea 100 miles southwest of Saigon after being hit by gunfire but the pilot was picked up unharmed, a spokesman reported. The spokesman said 150 Communist guerrillas were killed in the Viet Cong attack Tuesday on million will be realized immedi-jthe Vietnamese special forces officials" this morning. McNamara told newsmen that the Viet Cong guerrillas now total about 165,000 and that this compares with about 500,000 South Vietnamese government forces. Officials have said in the past that a ratio of at least 10 to 1 is necessary to offset the hit-and- run tactics of the guerrillas. McNamara was asked about his Saigon statement that he had seen a deterioration in the situation since his last visit 15 months ago. His reply centered on the intensified attacks by the guerrillas, especially in the increase of terror activities against the civilian population. Then, he added that the situation is not all black. He said that "the Viet Cong themselves are suffering very high casualties." By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Floodwaters fell slowly in northwest Missouri today, but an alert was out for the lowlands along the Missouri River to the east of here. But there was a respite from the torrential rains that sent streams to record high levels Monday and Tuesday, leaving seven dead in storm-related incidents and causing damage running into the millions. No significant rain is expected in the next few days. The Missouri River is forecast to crest at 27 J /2 feet tonight at Waverly about 60 miles east of Kansas City. This would be 9Va feet over flood stage and within a foot of the record stage set in 1951. Still raging today was the stem of the Platte River, which rises about 120 miles due north near the Iowa line and bends across the northwest edge of tin Kansas City metropolitan ares into the Missouri River. The Platte hit a record cres 16 feet above flood stage earl today at Agency, Mo., 50 mile above its mouth. A northeasterly branch, th have have into attack operations against the Viet Cong guerrillas, this formal policy position has appeared to some officials to become increasingly inadequate. The problem seems certain to grow more difficult at the numbers and actions of U.S. forces increase. One specific issue which i arises in this connection is the issue of command, as the United States assumes larger and larger responsibilities for the conduct of the war. Some kind of joint structure would appear 1,0 be a logical necessity. The roles of U.S. and Vietnamese forces would appear to be increasingly those of allies. In a joint command system the United States, with its greater ultimate resources of arms and men, would surely have to as- ume primary responsibility. Romney Says Bill Did Not Provide Careful Planning Sen. Mack Expresses Bitter Disappointment LANSING (AP)—Gov. George Romney today announced a veto of a senate bill which would i have forbidden the State Conservation Department to block the extension of state highway M 107 through the Porcupine Mountains State Park. Romney, who took a six-mile hike through the park earlier this month, said any road through the wilderness area would need careful planning — Top administration policy makers, however, are reported xtremely reluctant to take any uch step.

In addition, there are immediate questions of morale and o; measures to encourage the South Vietnamese leaders and which the bill did not provide. In a veto message to the senate, Romney said the bill "simply strips a state department of its rightful responsibility and calls for extension of a particular road that conceivably could result in t he worst solution to- the problem that proponents seek to correct. * * * "It is shot-gun legislation," the governor said, "lacking the specific restrictive approach re* quired.

The dominan idea of the Johnson administra tion in planning expanded mil tary pressures on the Cornmu nists is to try to encourage and reinforce South Viet Nam' sense of independence and self reliance. How this can be done in actual practice will be considered by Johnson and his top military and diplomatic advisers in conferences beginning today upon the return from Saigon of Secretary of Defense Robert 8. McNamara and Ambassador-designate Henry Cabot Lodge. Administration officials have no doubt that the President will order very large increases in the number of U.S. forces in South Viet Nam. As these increases become effective they may radically alter the nature of the war in the sense that American forces will undertake more and more attack operations against the Viet Cong. mnn pxnlanaHrm tnrtav was that' said tnis new service will result, inon explanation today was mat,.,, o ,.„ 1Q „,.,„„„ ,,. afo ,. or) ,,r.H™ edge with harassing actions.

The June 30 figure was $2. billion less than the estimate o six months ago. Federal spend ing during the year was fixed at $96.5 billion with receipts ol $93 billion. Summing up arguments pro and con, he said: > "Proponents of this bill believe that such a project would open the park to many who cannot now enjoy its full wilderness appeal and at the same time enhance business in the Immediate area.

Romney said he is not totally positioned with one side or the other. * * * His recent hike, the governor said, reminded him that It must be preserved as a wilderness retreat. He suggested, however, that a scenic road or highway might be built without sacrificing the special wilderness significance of the park. One possible approach, he said, Is a skyway across the escarpment overlooking Lake Superior and elevated between the park's peaks. "But such a road," he said, "would require special planning; it would be very expensive, and it would need the complete understanding and cooperation of everybody Involved, including the State Conservation Department." None of these goals, he said, would be accomplished by the bill at hand. "This bill neither insures construction of any road, if the right one, nor does it consider the preservation of the park," Romney said. "And it does not provide for plans or studies of a road." ;: Mack expressed "bitter disappointment" at the veto. He charged the veto was caused by "ill-founded opposition from persons who clouded the real issue by misrepresenting the facts." * * * "This was to be an access road—not a four-lane highway— as was charged by our opponents from the Lower Peninsula," Mack said. "This road would have enabled millions of persons to enjoy the scenic wonders of the 96 square miles of the Upper Peninsula affected." Mack said the road would have had a significant economic impact on the Upper Peninsula. He said the veto represented "another example of broken promises by influential Lower Peninsulans when it comes to helping the Upper Peninsula out of its economic plight." '<••• Mack said, meanwhile, that he is launching an all-out campaign to win a new, four-lane east-west highway through the Upper Peninsula. He said r>e Is asking the governor and all legislators to support this highway proposal. The proposed highway. Mack said, would run from the Mackl- nac Bridge to the Wisconsin border and would be of "tremendous benefit" to the econo* my of the Upper Peninsula.
