Planes Attack North Vietnamese Soldiers WOUNDED BY BOOBY TRAP—A First Infantry Division soldier, wounded by a booby trap in a guerrilla infested area, is carried out of a South Viet Nam jungle on a stretcher. The soldier is out of action, but the war in the jungles continues against an elusive and dangerous enemy. LBJ, Governors To Discuss Viet A family receiving the subsidy i ican .

The subsidy would then make up the difference between this payment and the rent needed to obtain adequate housing in the specified kind of project. If the family's income increased, the subsidy \ would decline or be eliminated entirely. Reliable sources say that apart from the specter of a new missile confrontation, the Kremlin feared that Soviet-U.S. strains would force big military budget increases, setbacks to the consumer economy program, the use of Viet Nam indefinitely by the Chinese as a stick to beat Moscow for lack of total support to a revolutionary cause, and enhancement of Chinese chances to spread influence at Moscow's expense. Something new was added when the missile bases were bombed. Red China already is crying that "a showdown between the people (meaning the Communists) of the world and U.S. imperialism is inevitable." In effect, Peking tells Moscow: "Put up or shut up." Crash of Navy Plane Kills 4 HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) All four men aboard a U.S. Navy patrol plane were killed when it crashed into the sea Monday just after taking off from Kindley Air Force Base. The four-engine plane, a T3A Orion, burst into flames and narrowly missed some oil tanks before it plunged into 50 feet of water. The names of the dead were in Michigan, Illinois and Missouri. The new pipeline is scheduled for completion in 1967. Prior to that time, however, McElvenny said the American Natural system will assist Trans-Canada in providing increased supplies of gas from western Canada reserves to eastern Canada. In the first year that it is completed, the Great Lakes pipeline will have a maximum daily delivery of 455 million cubic feet. The deliveries will increase to 735 million cubic feet daily in the fourth year, McElvenny said. withheld until notified. next of kin were Chancellor to Head Voice of America WASHINGTON (AP) —President Johnson named NBC newsman John W.

Premier Tries To Stall Vote ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Premier George Athanasiadis Novas sparred for time today in an effort to mobilize a majority in Parliament for the vote of confidence his government needs to survive. So far his chances of winning the vote looked slim. The new premier, named by MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Grant Sawyer of Nevada announced today that the country's governors will hold a three-houi conference at the White House Thursday with President Johnson on the Viet Nam situation. Sawyer, chairman of the National Governors Conference, told his colleagues to be ready to leave-early Thursday afternoon for. a 5 p.m., Washington time, briefing by the President.

The debate could last three or four days. Generals Favor Greater Force By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Some retired American generals who fought the Communists in Korea believe greater force is needed to bring victory in Viet Nam. Four of the generals say there should be a single armed forces command for U.S. and South Vietnamese troops. One of the generals, Edward M. Almond, favors use of atomic bombs if "needed to protect our troops." Gens. Mark Clark and John E. Hull say there is no present need for such a weapon in Viet Nam. However, Clark says he might change this view if there is increased participation by an outside Communist power, such as Red China. The four generals — Almond Clark, Hull and Matthew Ridgway—made their comments on Tuesday's 12th anniversary of the Korean armistice, in re sponse to an Associated Press survey. Clark, 69, was supreme Allied commander when he signed the Korean armistice in 1953. Almond, 72, commanded the 10th Army Corps which was hit by the first Communist attack in Korea. Hull, 70, succeeded Clark as commander of U.N. forces in the Far East. Supreme Court Justice Named WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson today named Abe Fortas — quoted two days ago as saying he wanted no government job "from president on down" — to be a justice of the Supreme Court. Fortas, 55 and a Washington lawyer, will succeed Arthur J Goldberg, who formally resigned Monday to become U.S ambassador to the United Nations as successor to the late Adlai E. Stevenson. Johnson said Fortas was hi first choice for the high court vacancy. Like Goldberg, Fortas is a Jew. Thus the appointment car ries on the tradition of having a justice of that faith. Fortas is a close friend and unofficial adviser to the Presi dent. His service to president —official and unofficial —dates back to New Deal days. The appointment was John son's first to the Supreme Court The White House sought only two days ago to puncture speculation that Fortas would take the job. Johnson said today that Fortas told him time and again he would not accept any government ap- on Viet Nam, th governors were expecting him to announce ar. enlarged draft on American 'esources and manpower. Vice President Hubert H Humphrey told the governors a much Tuesday night in carefullj screened words at the black-tie dinner that marks the socia peak of their annual conference Humphrey cautioned the gov ernors that the decisions John son will announce at a Washing ton news conference today wi touch the lives of thousands o American families. Humphrey pledged the gover nors that "we are not going fr falter" in opposing an effort ta; aggressors in South Viet Nam t "demonstrate that murder ani terrorism — and not peacefu coexistence — is the path o eventual Communist triumph." The governors were to take look at the Johnson administra tion's antipoverty program to day.

Heath's two declared rivals, Reginald Maudling and Enoch Powell, withdrew from the race. The withdrawals came after Heath, on a first ballot of Conservative members of the House of Commons, won 150 of the 298 votes cast Tuesday. The party's new rules re- ventional ground fire and two others crashed after colliding near their home base as they returned from the raids.

Although he had the majority, Heath lacked the 15 per cent because Maudling polled 133 votes. But the latter bowed out and promised to fully support Heath. New trials emerged for Prime Minister Harold Wilson's Laborites, who rule with a majority of only three votes in Commons. Wilson's financial executive, Chancellor of the Exchequer James Callaghan, announced a series of urgent economic meas ures. Callaghan ordered tighter controls on mortgages and installment buying, cuts in government spending both at home and abroad, and a general squeeze on public and private spending. His purpose was to accelerate the process of balancing Britain's trade and so maintain the value of the pound sterling. The new program was sure to cause grumbling among the voters. Heath, 49, will make his first real assault on the government as opposition chief next Tuesday. Up for debate is a Conservative motion deploring the 7 per cent increase in the cost of living since Labor turned the Tories out last October. If the government loses the censure vote, it will have to resign.

He said: j "I have directed Ambassador ' Goldberg to go to New York im; mediately and to present to the , secretary-general a letter from I me requesting that all the re- I sources, energy and immense ! prestige of the United Nations ! be employed to find ways to i halt aggression and bring peace in Viet Nam."

The Senate passage, by a vote of 69 to 24, completed congressional action on the measure. Its final passage climaxes a fight that began in 1935, with the writing of the original law, to include health care for the elderly Benefits under Social Security. The House passed Tuesday, 307 to 116, the compromise version of legislation embodying the greatest single expansion of Social Security ever voted. The health-care portion ends a generation of effort in Congress to write such a provision into the Social Security System. The Senate took up the meas- nal vote until today som absentees could nand. Sponsors said they were tain Johnson would sign the bill this month, probably Thursday or Friday, so that the increases in present Social Security benefits can come in September.
