Only France sounded a discordant note. U.S. Under secretary of State George W. Ball told Uie opening session of the SEATO ministerial council that the United States would welcome a peaceful solution to the Viet Nam conflict but would "fight on" rather than sign a "meaningless agreement" with the Com- mimisls. The council is holding a pines voiced firm support of U.S. actions with Pakistan taking a more reserved line by not specifically mentioning Viet Nam. But shortly after Ball spoke, France officially advised the council that it would disassociate itself from any joint action by SEATO and any of its conclusions on Viet Nam and Indochina as a whole. The French stand was spelled out by Achille Clarae, the "observer" sent by France instead of its foreign minister.

Hannibal, Mo., 20 miles south of here, also braced for a new crest. Two downtown blocks already were submerged and floodwaters began to stagnate. The Mississippi was expected to crest at 24.6 feet Tuesday at Quincy and Hannibal, the last two population centers in the path of the tenacious month-old flood. Each of the three previous crests here has broken a nearby dike, flooding a total of about 60,000 acres in the Ilinois farming counties of Pike, Henderson and Hancock.

The case was brought to the court by Louis Zemel of Middlefield, Conn., who applied without success in 1962 for a passport to go to Cuba as a tourist. Zemel sued in federal district court in New Haven, Conn., to get a ruling permitting him to go. He said he wished to satisfy his curiousity about the state of affairs in Cuba under Fidel Castro and thus become a better U. S. citizen.

The State Department said it was not in the best foreign policy interests of th United States to permit unrestricted travel to Cuba.

"The evidence establishes beyond the shadow of a doubt that South Viet Nam is the victim of deliberate aggression—a Communist 'war of national hb- eration'." Ball said the Communist attempt to explain the fighting as a civil war was "a hollow disguise." He said the United States did not enjoy bombing North Vict Nam and added thai the U.S. didn't like keeping thousands of its citizens under arms either. Ball earlier dismissed the fact that French President Charles de Gaulle, an outspoken critic of American policy in Viet Nam. sent only a nonparticipating observer to the three-day SE.-^TO meeting. He said the French boycott "simply ratifies a situation existing for some time." Top-level delegates were attending from the United Stales, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines. Pakistan and Thailand. The opening session was held at the banqueting house in Whitehall. British Prime Minister Harold Wilson opened the council session by warning that Communist aggression in Southeast .Asia must not be allowed "to make further headway" while peace efforts were being initiated.

Tieburg tells of losses due to farm labor lack SACRAMENTO (UPI)- State Employment Director Albert Tieburg says "tremendous losses" are in store for the Salinas Valley strawberry crop this year due to a lack of laborers —and he put the blame squarely on U.S. Labor Secretary Willard Wirtz. Tieburg made a quick tour Friday of the 2,000-acre Salinas strawberry growers' fields and called Uie situation there "a wasteful, needless disaster." He said only 900 acres has been picked. "They were just loaded with berries and already more than half of them were rotten." Tie­ burg said, "I'm siu-e this is typical in the Sahnas area." "They needed three :thousand workers and they had 300. It just makes you sick to see this kind of waste," he added. "No matter how many pickers they get now it's too late to prevent tremendous losses." The labor shortage is the result of the lapse of the Mexican bracero labor import law last December—and the failure of drives to recruit help from the domestic labor force. Tieburg said Wirtz' belated approval last week of 1,500 bra- ceros for California farm fields was too little, too late. Peace keeping forces Un'ifed States asks OAS members to send troops Tieburg said he felt when: WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United Stales proposed today that other members of the Organization of American States (OAS) join in sending peacekeeping forces to the Dominican Republic. The U.S. proposal was made by Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker at a closed session of the inter-American organization. He proposed that other governments make their military, naval and air forces available to the OAS to assist in carrying out the mission of its five-man peace committee. The OAS met today to "keep the situation under review" and to receive reports and recommendations from the peace committee. It also decided to keep the U.N. Security Council informed of developments in the Dominican Repubhc. President Johnson, who has ordered U.S. armed forces into the Caribbean country to help prevent establishment of another Communist government in the hemisphere, kept in close touch with the developments I there.

A backwater dike at Pleasant Hill, 111., south of Hannibal w^as strengthened by volunteers to stem the threat of a break which officials said woud inundate five miles of farmland. Water began lapping at a new 20-inch broad rim atop dikes guarding a rural Illinois area across from Hannibal. Sightseers compicated flood fighting work in some areas. A woman sightseer fell through a wooden sidewalk in Hannibal and broke her ankle. Dike workers stood by a long threatened levee at Niota, 111., about 60 miles north of here, using walkie-lakies to call for help in case of breaks. Wirtz made his recent tour oi the stale's farm fields to size up the labor silualion he "saw .some situations that are really foreign to him." Tieburg said some camps which Wirtz criticized were the "exception." "Then he made the surprise visits to tliree camps, he asked one of our officials to take him to housing that our man didn't think was too good. I'd say he wanted to see a bad one," Tie­ burg said. jcials planned to give the llousi Banker dies NEW YORK (UPI) — Arthur S.

White House press secretary George E. Reedy said the Pres ident was following events in the rebelUon - wracked Caribbean country and was bemg kept fully informed on developments there. Johnson told the nation Sunday night he had ordered an additional 4,500 troops to the Dominican Republic, bringing the total to 14,000, to protect U.S. citizens and other foreign nationals, distribute food and medicine and aid in sanitation measures. But he also said in his televised speech that "the American nations cannot, must not. and w-ill not permit the establishment of another Communist government in the Western Hemisphere. Reedy was asked today if the President's statement reflected we have done and why we have done it." Reedy said.

McNamara, and congressional leaders of both parlies. The day before, it an all-day session of the Organization of American Slates here, his tough Dominican policy had come under fire from a number of Latin American nations, angered at what they termed "unilaterial intervention."

The final two hours w-ere taken by a floor fight, mainly over boosting dues from S2 to $5 a year. They were kept at S2. But the delegates acted in comparative harmony by o\'er- whelmingly electing Fred W. Nagel Jr., 57-year-old Susanville rancher, as chairman for a one- year term. Nagel, who maintains a second home in Beverly Hills, immediately told newsmen his choice to meet Democratic Gov. Edmund G. Brown's third term bid—if it comes—was actor Ronald eagan.
