The. Boys' Nation, sponsored by the American Legion. Is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Rusk addressed the group in 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 the quality of American commitment all over the world." The secretary recalled various attempts the United States, the United Nations and a number of non-Communfet WASHINGTON (AP)—The old 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 plan go a 7 per cent increase in 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, for- Mine Project Contract Given side to the negotiating table. | and comments that made up the "Thus far these were frus- 1 White House Conference on Ed- trated by the attitude of Hanoi I ucation, one agreed opinion and Peking," he said. | stood forth clearly today: WHITE PINE — As part 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, estimating and cost control, and will analyze every phase of the expansion program with the exception of actual mine development 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- clucer. 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- sulting, engineering, design and construction services. About 2,000 employees are headquarterd In San Francisco and other offices are located through out the world. They are currently engaged in the design and construction of many large-? c a 1 e developments in such areas as mining, ore dressing, oil refining, power plants, pipel i n e s , hydro-electric projects and dams, and metallurgical and chemical plants. The issue in Viet Nam is very simple, Rusk continued. This is, he explained, that "tens of thousands of trained and armed men i were sent down" to South Viet i Nam to take over that country, of! This is the "central and inescapable fact, the only fact responsible for the presence of U.S. forces-in South Viet Nam," Rusk declared. 2 Birth Control Bills Are Signed LANSING (AP)—Gov. 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- are .recipients that advice and reatment is available. * * * They contain the stipulation hat financial aid may not <be made dependent on the request or or acceptance of family lanning assistance. They also prohibit suggesting "persuading welfare recipients Used Electric Range Sold IstDay-Want- Ad Brings Two Calls!

The measures supercede birth ontrol policies adopted by the ocial welfare commission, the :ent County and Detroit wel- are agencies. Detroit had permitted caseworkers to initiat discussion of birth control—a key issue in the stormy legislative course of the wo much-amended bills. Kent County prohibited such nitiation and the state commission policy permitted it with certain "safeguards." * * * The policy setting bill does not allow social workers to ini- date. discussion — but it allows them to discuss the subjecl with welfare " recipients.

' It would apply in cases o; neglect, exploitation, a b u« e cruelty or abandonment of children which are not serious enough to warrant petition of 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 discussions would be used "as the basis for the evolution of Hew programs, actions and legislative proposals — wherever such proposals are appropriate." + * * The conference touched on every aspect of education, from the tintest tots to graduate students seeking their Ph.D.'s. The areas of greatest .concern were school desegregation, 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. Johnson told the conference participants — leaders in education, business, labor and gpv- ernment — "your concern and mine is how we can remedy the serious defects of our present system, and how we can equip it to meet the new- challenges which are already engulfing our nation arid our world." * * * He drew a lengthy round of applause when he declared, 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 considered 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 conferees. The bill has three main provisions: Expansion of the 30-year-old Social Security system to provide hospitajization, 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. In 1967 and 1968 they each will pay $290.40 and by 1975 the rates will climb to -where they will pay $356.40 each. This year a- maximum of $4,800 in income was taxable for Social Security, with the maximum tax on employer and em- ploye $174. Under current "law the maximum in 1966 and 1967 would have been $198, and in 1968, $223.20. GRIM REPOET — 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 meah a boost in draft quotas and reserves call up.

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. Republicans Ask For Information WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican congressional leaders called on President Johnson today to tell Congress and the American people why the crisis in Viet Nam may necessitate the callup of Reserves, extended enlistments and increased draft calls. "We do not shrink from doing what the situation calls for, bu' we ought to be told and the American people ought to be alerted," Sen. Everett M. Dirk sen, R-I11., the Senate minority leader, told a news conference "If this situation is deteriorat ing, we should be told precisely how grave it is, and precisely what our experts think should be done." Rep. Gerald R. Ford, R-Mich. House minority leader, speak ing at the same news confer ence, said he personally feel the President should come be fore Congress and ask authority before calling up Reserves.

Asked at a news conferenc 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 SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) —U.S. war planes ^lew closer today to the Red Chinese border than, ever before oh an air strike over North Viet Nam, a U.S. military spokesman said.
