By MERRIMAN SMITH UPI White House Reporter WASHINGTON (UPD—Presi­ dent Jolmson told Congress today he wants $700 million more over the next two months to finance U.S. military operations against "Communist aggression" in both the Dominican Republic and South Viet Nam. The President, in a briefing ,for more than 100 key meni- Burbank, (jlenda]e, Los,bers of the House and Senate, said "When we are attacked, we must not turn tail and run. We must stand and fight." He said the new American firmness against North Viet Nam "may well have already brought us closer to peace. But as long as no settlement is choice but to continue the same course. The President said that congressional approval of his request would tell the world that the United States would "spend every dollar, take every action, walk the last mile to see that people have the right of self-deter m ination.'' Makes Other Points Johnson also made these other points at his White House meeting with members of six congressional committees: —U. S. intelUgence reports had indicated that another revolution might be expected elsewhere Monday, but "it didn't come through." He did not name the country, although the inference was that it was in in sight, he said, there was no j Latin America. reported massing up to 12,300 men for an all-out assault. They would be opposed by up to 19.000 .Americans. .A. U.S. military spokesman reported the discovery of Soviet-made hand grenades and the capture of a rebel two-man miniature submarine laden with heavy and light machineguns and underwater demolition supplies. Observers believed the arms might have come from Cuba. The spokesman said the rebels were massing north and south of the international refuge zone held by the Marines and that they had at least three tanks. They also had three caterpillar bulldozers tliey were believed arming as tanks. .A military spokesman said the rebel strength included at least 300 rebel Dominican army troops and 12,000 armed civilians. He said some of them, armed with 50 caliber machiue- Tlie two-man submarine apparently was smuggling in arms for the rebels. The spokesman said seven Americans had been killed thus far in the operation, and 43 wounded. The latest intelligence reports said the rebel leadership included hardcore Dominican Communists, and tlie spokesman said there were reports of Cuban Communists among them. In Washington President John son said 58 men with known Communist backgrounds were among the revolt leaders. The spokesman placed the main rebel buildup for a possible all out attack near Cheekpoint Charlie on the outer tip of the Marine perimeter near the U.S. Embassy. Opposing the rebels he said the Americans now had 14,000 troops ashore and about 5,000 in Navy ships offshore. They in- The briefing indicated the rebels w-ere bringing in arms from sea. possibly from Cuba but the spokesman did not identify the nationality of the captured submarine. He said the American military had discovered a rebel supply of heavy and light m.a- chineguns, explosives and underwater demolition supplies. The rebels have frogmen trained by the United States but there were no reports they were in action. The .Army said it sank a rebel gunboat Monday night in the Ozama. A spokesman said, "They were taking potshots at us and we finally got tired of it and sank them." It was the second gunboat destroyed since the U.S. military moved in. The spokesman reported rebel machinegun fire today in Santo Domingo itself with the rebels firing across the Ozama River at U.S. forces who returned the fire. He said there from had been only sniping during tlie night. The spokesman said more paratroopers had moved up north of the Duarte Bridge on the east side of the river to extend the area of American control and that tlie rebel area had been sealed off. The .Americans had carved a 3 '/2 -mile long corridor through the rebel-held portion of the city so supplies could be brought in. The military said 2,000 paratroopers were strung out along the route and that Marines also were guarding the route. The French consul reported two French warships speeding here from Martinique, apparently to evacuate French nationals. The military spokesman reported three paratroopers had been killed and 30 wounded in action and three Mai-ines killed and 19 wounded in action. One paratrooper identified only as an enlisted man was reported killed in a hand grenade explosion at the San Isidro Airbase; a paratroop officer was critically wounded in the explosion and two others suffered lesser hurts.
