White House Conferences on Viet Strategy Continue for Third Day By EDMOND LE BRETON WASHINGTON (AP) — White House conferences continue today on Viet Nam strategy and the demands it may make in manpower and money. No conclusions have been announced, but already in Congress the feeling appeared to be spreading that expanded lighting may force another look at the budget and derail any program to wrap up President Johnson's domestic legislation by Labor Day and go home. For the third straight day Johnson's schedule was given over to intensive talks'with secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, who returned Wednesday from Viet Nam, and other top military and civilian officials. Press "Secretary Bill D.."Movers said after Thursday's,, all- day session there was no telling how long the talks will continue, but "conclusions and recommendations will be forthcoming after all the evidence, including all the recommendations and weighed." Moyers confirmed that much of the discussion centered on "manpower requirements for present and future needs." There has been unofficial talk of sending 100,000 more American] troops to reinforce the 75,000 now in Viet Nam, and of calling up some reserves and National Guardsmen as well as extending Romney, Kelley Agree on Vote On Constitutional Amendment By PHILIP DOPOULOS ATHENS, Greece (AP)—More than 100,000 shouting demonstrators marched through the streets of Athens today In a mammoth funeral cortege for a left-wing youth killed In a political riot. 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. Police, who gave crowd estimates, reported scores of per- sons fainted in the heat. The scene was chaotic at the cemetery!, where thousands jammed the grounds, trampling graves and knocking over tombstones. The demonstrators cheered the cathedral where the body of 25-year-old Sotirios Petroulias lay. 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 LANSING (AP)—Gov. George Romney and Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley today urged that voters be given a chance to approve a constitutional amendment giving the governor power to fill judicial vacancies. The joint announcement came as an unusual show of agree- the constitutional is approved by th ment between the Republican governor and the Democratic attorney general, frequently at odds, on other issues. Both agreed, however, that the constitutional mandate that such judicial vacancies be filled by election—with retired judges serving in the interim — haci proved unworkable hi the past year and one-half. The agreement was reported reached earlier between Romney and Democratic legislators. Romney and Kelley said they will urge the legislature to submit the proposed constitutional amendment to the voters for action when the lawmakers return to Lansing July 29. If approved by two thirds of the membership of both houses, not later than 60 days before the scheduled Nov. 2. general election, the proposed amendment could be voted on then. Some reports said that in return for Democratic support, Romney Thursday signed a bill ships. If amendment 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.

Legislators were to vote on the constitutional amendment 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 unanimqus consent to take ifup £rnmediately on the Senate floor. At the hearing, marked with praise of Goldberg, the nominee Asia. Red China even now may be testified fronting that the the crisis con- 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 thai 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 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. 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 Evidence Found In Mail Robbery BOSTON (AP) The Boston Herald said today in a copy-: righted story that postal authorities have enough evidence to obtain six indictments in the $1.5 million August 1962 Plymouth mail truck robbery.

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." jHowever, Schultze said he sees no need to raise taxes.

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 Republican or Democrat. What remained unexplained however, was the timing of the vote, especially since state election officials estimate that a special statewide election would cost $350,000.

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."

Air Strikes Are Stepped Up By RONALD I. DEUTSCH SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — The United States ment 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 vots was 245 to 158, with 24 Republicans joining 221 Democrats to make up the majority 110 Republicans and 48 Demo crats voting against.

One proposed amendment, which was defeated, would have barred the administrator of the program from holding any other federal job.

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 en- have 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.

At least six persons took part in the robbery. An airplane, a code scramb ling device, throat microphones 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.

Two organizations 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 Narn, 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, who calls himself "liaison delegate of the Thailand Independence Movement;" and Mrs. Quinim Pholsena. She is not a Thai but the widow of a leftist foreign 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. imperialists." 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 clandestine radio called "Voice of Thailand."
