Heavily-armed riot police and troops kept watch over the vast crowd. They were under orders to crush the first sign of violence by followers of fallen premier George Papandreou. The crowd cried denunciations of the new Greek government, but under the threat of military intervention, the demonstration and burial took place without clashes.

Budget Director Charles Schultze told a Senate-House fiscal subcommittee Thursday "military spending will clearly be higher than the President estimated in January." Schultze said the Viet Nam situation has upset plans to finance some administration domestic programs. It had been hoped, he said, to cover about half of a $4.3 billion rise in the cost of projects "allied to the President's Great Society concept" by savings elsewhere. But the budget director said "events in Viet Nam have overrun this forecast." however, Schultze said sees no need to raise taxes. Jury Finds Jim Brown Innocent CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP)—A jury found football star Jim Brown innocent today of assault and battery against an 18-year- old girl in a motel room here last month. The seven women and five men deliberated an hour and 20 minutes before returning the acquittal verdict in Municipal he | Court where the Cleveland Browns fullback has been on tri- ships. If the constitutional amendment is approved by th voters at a special election next Nov. 2, Romney would be able to appoint nine of the judges to fill the "vacancies" created by the new law. Sources in the executive, legislative and judicial branches of state government, who declined to be identified, said, an agreement had been reached. Their accounts of what happened varied, however, and some denied a deal had been struck. Others indicated Romney's office had hinted to Democrats interested in the new judgships that constitutional difficulties might by found in the bill, forcing Romney to veto it. Legislators were to vote on the constitutional amendment proposal, which would then be put to the voters in the special November election. Approval by a two-thirds vote is needed in each house, meaning bipartisan support is necessary. The constitutional change could not take place in tim to affect the filling of four posts in Wayne County. They are to be filled by a special election, Nov. 2. But legal experts said that if the voters approved the change, it would become part of the constitution 45 days after the vot— taking precedence over the bill, which says that the remaining three Wayne County posts and the six outstate judges were to be elected in November, 1966. Some Democrats said they have favored gubernatorial appointment all along — without any concern as to whether the man in the governor's chair at the moment was a Republicar or Democrat. What remained unexplained however, was the timing of the vote, especially since state election officials estimate that a special statewide election woulc cost $350,000. Senate Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen told newsmen Thursday Congress must face the question whether the President needs additional legislative authority or funds to meet Viet Nam requirements, and this may upset hopes for adjournment in early September. He said he and the Democratic leader, Sen. Mike Mans- al since July 12. Brown had testified he "didn't lay a finger on" Miss Brenda Ayres, who accused him of slapping her on the face, stomach and hip and having sex relations with her after giving her whisky. He said Brenda knocked on his motel room door at 3 a.m 2 ° wanted to talk, and Goldberg Wins Senate Approval WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate, acting with record speed, today confirmed Arthur Goldberg's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Confirmation by voice vote came after the Supreme Court justice told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the issue of world peace "transcends every issue our country and mankind has to face." The committee, in a session lasting less than 40 minutes, voted its unanimous approval of the nomination. Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield won unanimous consent to take it up immediately on the Senate lloor. At the hearing, marked with praise of Goldberg, the nominee testified that the crisis confronting the United Nations "must be solved and the work of the United Nations must go on." The Supreme Court justice, former secretary of labor and labor lawyer, was President Johnson's surprise choice to succeed the late Adlai E. Stevenson in the nation's top ambassadorial job. Goldberg, testifying briefly, pledged that in the post he would carry on the struggle for world peace and for "human rights and social justice for all men everywhere." ions fainted in the heat. The scene was chaotic at the ceme- ,ery, ( where thousands jammed the grounds, trampling graves and knocking over tombstones. The demonstrators cheered ihe cathedral where the body of 25-year-old Sotirios Petroulias .ay. Petroulias was asphyxiated Wednesday night during a battle between police and thousands of Papandreou supporters in which more than 150 persons were injured. The government of Premier George Athanasiadis Novas gave permission to hold the service at the cathedral. But the government placed armed forces in the Athens area on full alert against any violence. After a 40-minute service at the cathedral, Papandreou left by a side street and the coffin was placed in a gilded hearse for the procession to the cemetery. More than 50,000 chanting demonstrators followed the hearse through the sun-baked, crowd- lined streets. The riot climaxed a week of demonstrations touched off July 15 when King Constantine fired Papandreou and made Athana- siadis Novas premier. The 25- year-old monarch broke with Papandreou over the 77-year-old leader's campaign to purge politically active officers from the armed forces, most of them conservatives or royalists. Athanasiadis Novas, who is 72, charged Thursday night that Papandreou provoked the crisis to cover up involvement of his American-educated son, Andreas, with a left-wing military group known as Aspida. The premier charged that Papandreou was "aiming to obstruct the investigation of As pida which is now being carried out by justice authorities without outside influence." Unconfirmd reports said four army officers are being held for questioning in connection with the investigation of Aspida. The organization is said to be working inside the armed forces to make a neutral nation of Greece, now a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Ike Is Near Watersmeet MINOCQUA, Wis. (AP) — "Gone Fishing" was the report again Thursday as former President Dwight D. Eisenhower vacationed in northern Wisconsin's lake country. His wife told a newsman: "He just loves this country." Eisenhower visited a 14,000 acre private club near Watersmeet, Mich., but his catch, if any, was kept secret. Technical Problems Plague Rehearsal for Space Flight CAPE KENNEDY, Fla.

House Approves More Poverty Program Funds Senate May Be Slow In Considering Bill WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has voted to double — to $1.9 billion — the funds authorized for President Johnson's antipoverty program. But the legislation the House passed Thursday despite Republican efforts to limit it faces slow going in the Senate, where it may have to compete for right-of-way with a controversy over reapportionment of state legislatures. The victorious House Democrats had their closest call when Republicans fought to retain In the law a provision giving governors the right to veto certain poverty projects. The bill would eliminate this veto power, which opponents said is arbitrary and discriminatory and has enabled some state executives to override the wishes of local communities in shaping programs. * * * A Republican-backed amendment to continue the veto power lost 155 to 150 on a nonrecord vote and then 227 to 178 on a roll call. On passage of the bill itself the vote was 245 to 158, with 24 Repuolicans joining 221 Democrats to make up the majority, 110 Republicans and 48 Democrats voting against. Republicans argued that the program in its year of existence has become entangled in local politics and patronage and has been poorly administered. One proposed amendment, which was defeated, would have barred the administrator of the program from holding any other federal job. Sargent Shriver, chief of the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO), also is director of the Peace Corps. There were unsuccessful attempts to cut the funds, tighten state control over programs and clip the authority of the OEO. * * * Two of the farthest ranging of the poverty programs are the Job Corps, which under the bill would provide training and basic education in residential camps for 80,000 youths, and VISTA, the so-called domestic Peace Corps, which would enroll 5,000 volunteers to work on antipoverty projects in 200 communities. Other programs, and the goals that would be set for them by the bill, include: Neighborhood Youth Corps for youngsters living at home to gain work experience, 300,000 Red China May Be Set To Activate New Front By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent Costly and bloody though it is, the war in Viet Nam may be only the curtain raiser of a struggle involving all Southeast Asia. Red China even now may be ready to activate a new front. This may depend upon whether Peking believes the Communists in Viet Nam are clos to victory or to a settlement which would mean exclusion of the U.S. presence. The stage for the new front is U.S. Air Strikes Are Stepped Up By RONALD I. DEUTSCH SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — The United States stepped up its air strikes against suspected Viet Cong positions in South Viet Nam today and flew at least six bombing missions against North Viet Nam, a military spokesfan an nounced.

Evidence Found In Mail Robbery BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Herald said today in a copyrighted story that postal authorities have enough evidence to obtain six indictments in the $1.5 million August 1962 Plymouth mail truck robbery. The Herald said authorities nave delayed bringing the case before a federal grand jury as they make a "frantic, last- ditch attempt" to recover about $500,000 from the largest cash robbery in United States history. The Herald story said the man who planned the robbery is believed to have kept a lion's share of the loot, or a half million dollars. Other members of the gang split the remainder. At least six persons took part in the robbery. An airplane, a code scramb ling device, throat microphone and hidden automobile anten nae are being used in the hunt the Herald said in a story by Stanley Eames. The robbery took place as the mail truck was taking bank deposits from Cape Cod to the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston. One bandit wearing a police uniform stopped the truck and others tied up the truck crew and drove off. The robbery netted $1,551,277. The Herald said authorities recently began using a light plane to watch a man living in a western Boston suburb who is believed to have masterminded the robbery. He is one of nine suspects, the paper said. "Every fair morning," the story said, "as early as 7 o'clock, a light plane laden with advanced communications equipment arrives over the suspect's residence. "It circles, sometimes for as long as three hours, waiting for him to leave his home" in one of his two Cadillacs. "The moment either car leaves the house, the plane radios several unmarked cars in the neighborhood, and gives the direction the suspect is taking. . ." The Herald quoted its source as saying the suspect knows he is being followed. The Herald said the cost of the investigation has exceeded the cash loss in the robbery. William White, chief postal inspector for New England, was quoted as declining comment on the investigation. being set in Thailand. Two or* ganizations already exist there, the Thailand Patriotic Front and the Thailand Independence Movement. The patriotic front to that of the National Front for likely would have a role similar Liberation of South Viet Nam, formed in 1960 as a political cover for the Viet Cong. The independence movement would be similar to the Viet Cong guerrilla organization. Leaders of the patriotic front now are in Red China. These include Phayone Chulanont, described by Peking as a lieutenant colonel; Mon Kon Nanakon, ho calls himself "liaison dele- ate of the Thailand Independence Movement;" and Mrs. Quinim Pholsena. She is not a Dhai but the widow of a leftist 'oreign minister of Laos who was assassinated in 1963. Mon has been broadcasting to Thailand, issuing violent diatribes against the government of Premier Thanom Kittika- chorn and "the U.S. imperial- sts." He says the war in Viet Nam is "similar to our struggle against the U.S. imperialists.'.' Peking evidently is financing a big propaganda drive against the Thai government through a ilandestine radio called "Voice of Thailand." This campaign began to gather steam late in 1964, adding to Thailand's troubles in its impoverished northeast provinces, a dust bowl region close to the Communist Pathet Lao area. The government says Chinese agents infiltrate regularly across the Mekong River. In the Communist announced forma- December, propaganda tion of an independent national movement. In northeast Thailand there have been killings, principally of officials of th Bangkok government. Reliable sources say armed Communists roam mountain areas, recruiting in much the same manner as the Viet Cong in South Viet Nam. U.S. state Department reports tell of growing evidence that Thailand now is an important Red Chinese target, that terrorism has ben noticeably increased, along with recruitment, propaganda and subversion, the latter financed by big Chinese purchases of Thai currency in Hong Kong. talked until he went to fiplrt nlan an parlv rnnfprpncp' " lcjr Lallvcu ul1 " 1 llc wc ">- LU »Rh'.T±?.,T y Conference1 play golf about 5 a.m., leaving with Johnson. ™ IT i t' n ,. inin.,1 th» «~rm her $5 for taxi fare home Dirksen later joined the GOP * *«,*«,« a,™,.,* «„< 5 Ford ninn j™ calling on Johnson The defense argued injuries on Brenda's body in pho- L,fV, fi « h«« for fho miH ' to 8raphs introduced by the pros- tell thei nation how far the mill- bution had been ^ mcie £ by J? 1 ?.,. 8 ^ 1 !? 11 has deteriorated i someone other than Brown.

(AP)—A Chum of Jack (Murph the Surf) Murphy, the man involved in the Star of India sapphire theft, and a former Playboy Club bunny were caught with $150,000 worth of stolen jewels Thursday after somebody tipped police. Richard Duncan Pearson, 34, and Mary Elaine Denison, 22, were charged with the Sunday burglary of Miami's big Jordan Marsh department store. Police arrested Pearson as he opened a bus station locker which held the bag containing the jewels. The locker was five lockers away from the one which held the star of India, stolen from the New York Museum of Natural History Oct. 29, 1964. Miss Denison was arrested in a car outside the bus station.
