(NEA Telephoto i Rusk Says U.S. Faces Crisis in Viet Nam WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk said today the United States is facing s crisis in Viet Nam because the Communists are "not interested in discussing" a peaceful solution of the war. "We are in a crisis situation, we are not sending you home in any comfort," Rusk told Boys' Nation, a ^roup of 100 young men—two from each state. The Boys' Nation, sponsored by the American Legion, is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Rusk addressed the group in Mine Project Contract Given WHITE PINE — As part of Copper Range Company's p r o- gram to double copper production at its White Pine mine, a contract has been awarded to the Bechtel Corporation for the scoping engineering. The work is to begin immediately and will be completed by the end of this year. In announcing the contract, R. C. Cole, president of White Pine Copper Company, a division of Copper Range Company, said, "Bechtel will make an appraisal of plant, process, equipment and other facilities needed to increase annual copper production from the present 134,000,000 pounds to an estimated 270,000,000 pounds. Bechtel will develop an economic evaluation of planning, scheduling, estimat- i ing and cost control, and will analyze every phase of the expansion program with the exception of actual mine develop-; ment and production which will be performed by White Pine! personnel." White Pine, located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is the largest mine operation o f Copper Range Company, a major United States copper p r o- ducer. In a statement made earlier this year James Boyd, president of Copper Range Company, said that the copper ore reserves at White Pine probably contain well over ten per cent of the total known United States copper reserves of a grade that can be profitably mined under current economic conditions. Bechtel Corporation is one of the largest organizations in the world exclusively offering c o n- a brief extemporaneous speech. The United States is "not the gendarme of the universe. That is not our role," Rusk said. But he added that the United States has a 10-year-old commitment in South Viet Nam. ! "The integrity of American! pillar of peace, it has to do with i Uie quality of American commit- j ment all over the world." ] The secretary recalled vari-! ous attempts the United States, ! the United Nations and a number of non-Communist countries; have made to bring the other side to the negotiating table. "Thus far these were frustrated by the attitude of Hanoi ; and Peking," he said. The issue in Viet Nam is very simple. Rusk continued. This is, he explained, that "tens of thou- ! sands of trained and armed men ! were sent down" to South Vietj Nam to take over that country. This is the "central and inescapable fact, the only fact responsible for the presence of U.S. forces in South Viet Nam," Rusk declared. WASHINGTON (AP)—The old j age health insurance bill is finally ready, except for putting agreements into formal language, for a fast final whirl through Congress. Along with the new health j considered ; plan go a 7 per cent increase in i present Social Security benefits and other liberalizing changes in the existing program. Because it's a revenue measure, the House is the first stop for the compromise completed Wednesday by a conference committee of the Senate and House. Conference Tells Education Needs By G. K. HODENFIELD AP Education Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Out of all the background papers, formal speeches, panel discussions and comments that made up the' White House Conference on Ed-i ucation, one agreed opinion stood forth clearly today: i There is much that remains to! be done in education, and the federal government must continue and expand its efforts to help. President Johnson officially closed the two-day conference Wednesday when he told the 709 invited participants their dis- | cussions would be used "as the j basis for the evolution of new programs, actions and legisla- j pay $356.40 each. That stop, Speaker John W. McCormack, D-Mass., said, will be made Tuesday. Then it's over to the Senate and finally President Johnson for his signature. Approval all along the line is a cinch. The rest of this week, congressional aides and Welfare Department and Social Security Administration staff members will put into legislative language the decisions reached by the I conferees. The bill has three main provisions: Expansion of the 30-year-old Social Security system to provide hospitalization, nursing home care, home nursing services and out-patient diagnostic services for all Americans over 65. A voluntary supplementary federal program of insurance to cover major doctor bills, some dental surgeon services and some other health costs of older Americans. They would pay premiums of $3 a month, matched by federal funds. A 7 per cent increase, retroactive to last Jan. 1, in all cash benefits under the current old age, survivors and disability insurance program. With this broadest expansion of the Social Security system since its inception come progressive increases in Social Security taxes: A worker earning at least $6,600 next year will pay $277.20 and his employer a like amount. i In 1967 and 1968 they each will • pay $290.40 and by 1975 the rates ; will climb to where they will GRIM REPORT — Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, flanked by Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge and Gen. Earle C. Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at an airport press conference, warns that more U.S. troops in South Viet Nam may mean a boost in draft quotas and reserves call up. Within hours of McNamara's return to Washington, President Johnson convened a top- level White House conference to hear a report on his tour of Vietnamese battle zones.

The areas of greatest concern were school desegregation, j dropouts, the decline of the big| city schools, and preschool programs for deprived children of the urban slums. In all these areas, and in others, the federal government was asked to step up its efforts and its financial expenditures to get things moving.

George Romney today signed two controversial birth control measures into law. The bills, sponsored 'by Rep. William Ryan, D-Detroit, provide family planning information to recipients of public welfare and set up clinics for women on medical assistance. The bills, which have immediate effect,, require the state social welfare commission to notify orally or in writing wel-iernment — "your concern and fare recipients that advice and mine is how we can remedy the ' in viet Nam mav necessitate the Former Vice President Richard M.

They also prohibit suggesting or persuading welfare recipients to accept or reject such services. The measures supercede birth control policies adopted by the social welfare commission, the Kent County and Detroit welfare agencies. Detroit had permitted caseworkers to initiat discussion of birth control—a key issue in the stormy legislative course of the serious defects of our present system, and how we can equip it to meet the new challenges which are already engulfing our nation and our world." He drew * * lengthy applause when he round of declared, callup of Reserves, extended enlistments and increased draft calls.

Johnson drew another burst of applause when he suggested creating a system of internships, as a memorial to Adlai Stevenson, to provide periods of service in the United Nations for young men and women from all over the world. Stevenson, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., died July 14 in London. Action Is Urged By Sen. Nelson WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 100 county and city officials in northern Wisconsin were urged today by Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., to lay the can congressional leaders this week to chat with them about party affairs, including the lean condition of its coffers, and such matters as the GOP position on Viet Nam. Asked at a news conference Wednesday whether he thinks the 1960 party nominee is likely to become a candidate again, Senate Republican Leader Evrett M. Dirksen replied: "He didn't say." But Dirksen went on to note that Nixon is topping all other potential GOP aspirants in the public polls. The Illinois senator intimated he thought the polls reflected party sentiment rather accurately. Nixon's leading position at this point is credited to the fact Top Level Talks Continue Today At White House Senator Says Reds Talk of 20 Years WASHINGTON (AP) — S ate Democratic Leader Mik« Mansfield says it is "anticipated on our side" that the war in Viet Nam may continue for 10 yearn — while the Communist side talks of 20. Top level White House talks resume today, with military emphasis on what the Montana senator called "an ordeal of indefinite duration and Increasing sacrifice which will persist until the problem can be resolved at the conference table." Mansfield spoke in the Senate Wdnesday night at the end of • long day during which the high-est officials of government reviewed the word Secretary of Defense Robert S.

He said a commission will be created soon after enactment of the Bill and the upper Great Lakes region could then begin to combat problems of unemployment and a sagging economy on an organized, multi-state oasis. of 7 Killed, ISO Hurt in Riot ATHENS, Greece (AP) Greece's new premier today 1 threatened tougher measures I ggainst supporters of ousted!

Woman Is First to Sail Alone From California to Hawaii former vice president acceptable as a candidate. Most party liberals, with the possible exception of Sen. Thomas H. Kuchl, R-Calif., wouldn't object to Nixon. The former vice president also is displaying a new affability with the press. This is an attribute that a survey made under the sponsorship of House Minority Leader Gerald F. Ford, R- Mich., and 11 GOP colleagues said Nixon lacked in the 19606 campaign and his unsuccssful 1962 race for governor of California. The survey, which urged Republicans to take advantage of what it said was President Johnson's "inability to deal effectively with the press," said Nixon's "bitter denunciation of the prss" following his dfeat in California was "an intemperate outburst to be long remembered by the candidate, the press and the pubic."

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) —U.S. closer today to the Red Chinese border than ever before on an air strike over North Viet Nam, a U.S. military spokesman said. Three Air Force F105 Thun- derchiefs bombed a highway bridge only 41 miles from . the Chinese frontier, the spokesman said. The raiders destroyed the bridge 105 miles northwest of Hanoi and also cratered the Yen Bay railroad yards 80 miles northwest of the Communist capital. • * * * The pilots reported heavy Communist groundfire, but the spokesman said all planes returned safely. In raids last week, U.S. bombers hit targets 43 miles from Communist China. In the only other raid on North Viet Nam reported today, eight F4 Starfighters destroyed 20 buildings and damaged numerous others at the Dong Cao, Then barracks 60 miles inside Communist territory, the spokesman said. . He also reported heavy aif action against the Viet Cong in South Viet Nam and scattered clashes on the ground. The Viet Cong kept up pressure on troops of the U.S. 1st Division Wednesday night for the fourth consecutive .night. American casualties again were reported light and the infiltrators were repulsed. * * * Beginning about 9 p.m. guerrillas fired mortars and small arms at 1st Division positions east of the big Bien Hoa air base 12 miles north of Saigon. "It didn't last very long and American casualties were very light," a U.S. spokesman said. Through most of the night, a Nam government forces of about 500,000, he said, and that is a "totally unacceptable ratio," for guerrilla war. There was unofficial talk of sending 100,000 more U.S. troops to booster the 75,000 already there. The White House talks Wednesday included contributions by the heads of the Statt Department, Central Intelligence Agency, U.S. Information Agency and other nonmilitary officials. Today, however, the principal participants were to be McNamara and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, pointing to work toward decisions on such matters as the number and composition of additional forces that may be sent overseas and a possible callup of some reservists and National Guardsmen to replace them. Mansfield told the Senate "there is talk of a reserve cal- lup, ; extended enlistment, added defense appropriations and the like. It is even anticipated on our side that the war may go on for four or five or even ten years and Ho Chi Minn, president of North Viet Nam, lifts stated in the last day or so that he is prepared for a war of 3D years duration." Mansfield called for an effort to reconvene the 1962 Geneva conference to discuss the affairs of Laos, Cambodia, South Viet Nam and North Viet Nam. A Republican spokesman, however, asked, "is it enough to say that we are fighting to get the enemy to come to a confer- enc table?" Rep. Gerald R.
