Swift presidential approval was expected for the $7.5-billion measure which follows the main lines of Johnson's housing recommendations to Congress earlier in the year. The bill, given final congressional clearance by a 251-168 House vote Tuesday, provides new money and authorizations for the major government housing programs over the next four years. The rent subsidy proposal makes available S350 million over a four-year period to help some of the families eligible for public housing. in effect, the program would provide an alternative for publicly financed housing develop- them.

While the congressionally approved legislation went along with the principle of subsidies, a new departure advocated by the President, it changed the application significantly. The original proposal was designed to help those with income too high for low-rent public housing but too low for privately built homes and apartments at the going rates. A family receiving the subsidy would have to pay 25 per cent of its income for rent. 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 entirely. or be eliminated 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 names 'of the dead were withheld until next of kin were notified. which the American Natural system will purchase at least 170 million cubic feet of gas a day to be supplied by Trans Canada from western Canadian reserves. McElvenny said a total of 57 million cubic feet of this ga will be purchased by Michigan Consolidated to provide additional gas service in the Upper Peninsula and to supplement its gas supplies. The remainder, he said, will be used by the American Natural system to supply growing market demands in the areas it serves in Michigan Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois and ! Missouri. The new pipeline is scheduled for completion in 1967. Prior' to that time, however, McElvenny said the American Natural sys tern will assist Trans-Canada in providing increased supplies o gas from western Canada re serves 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 wil increase to 735 million cubic feet daily in the fourth year McElvenny said. pressures. Perhaps a large section of the Communist world has banked on years of U.S. involvement in a costly Vietnamese war. Peking, at least, seemed to be gambling on it. Red China could afford to be patient, to look upon attrition as a useful tool against the United States and at the same time against Soviet influence in Asia. Up to now, at relatively small expense, Red China seemed the principal beneficiary of a prolonged war.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — Gov.

Prior to the President report 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 response 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. Ridgway, 70, was former U.N. commander in Korea during the fighting. SupremeGourt 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 his first choice for the high court vacancy. Like Goldberg, Fortas is a Jew. Thus the' appointment carries 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 spec ulation that Fortas would taki the job. Johnson said today that Forta told him time and again he would not accept any government ap pointment. But Fortas finallj agreed, he said, that a call t the. court is not one that any American can reject. m Viet Nam, th governors were expecting him to announce ar. enlarged draft on American 'esources and manpower.

Heath's two declared rivals, Reginald Maudling and Enoch 'owell, withdrew from the race. ["he 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 required the winner to poll both a majority and 15 per cent more ;han the runner-up. Although he lad the majority, Heath lacked the 15 per cent because Maudling polled 133 votes. But the .atter bowed out and to fully support Heath.

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 measure Tuesday but held up the fi- death and desolation have lecl to the same conference table where others could not join us at so much smaller cost." Johnson said his first goal in Viet Nam is to "convince the Communists that we cannot be defeated by force of arms.M •; In a key passage on the dispatch of increased American manpower to the jungle war, the President said: -• "I have today ordered to Viet Nam the Air Mobile Division^ and certain other forces which will raise our fighting strength from 75,000 to 125,000 .men. .•Additional, forces will be needed later and they will be sent.

The $6.5-billion bill contains broad new health protection available to all 19 million Americans 65 or over as a matter of right and at small cost. It also increases all present Social Security checks — for retirees, .disabled persons and family survivors — by 7 per cent, retroactive to Jan. 1. Checks going to 20 million beneficiaries will be increased. Everyone is guaranteed an increase of at least $4 a month. An individual who has been receiving the present retirement minimum, $40, will get- $44. One who has been receiving the maximum, $127, will have his check increased to $135.90. Couples in which the wife also is of retirement age get 50 per cent above the single person's figure in each case. The pay-roll tax is increased to help pay for the benefit expansions. The health program is in two parts: 1. A basic plan financed under Social Security covering hospital stays, posthospital nursing-home care, outpatient hospital diagnostic services, and some health visits. 2. A voluntary supplemental insurance plan covering doctors' fees for services at home, in the office or the hospital, as well as some other services not included in the basic plan.
