The attack was felt to be a strong demonstration of the '.'no retreat" policy; without the attack some mobilization might have been used to display national determination. Viet Nam dominated the news conference and set its somber tone when Johnson spoke of "the most agonizing and the most painful duty of your President." This, he said, is the duty of sending young men away from homes, work and happiness, despite the tears of their families, into a zone of war. Johnson also announced the first big assignment for the new ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur J. Goldberg. It is to ask the international body to use all its resources to bring peace in Viet Nam. The President's only other news was of two appointments: —Abe Fortas, a Washington lawyer and long a friend and adviser of Johnson, to the Supreme Court vacancy left when Goldberg became ambassador. —John W.

The Senate gave final approval Wednesday in a 70-24 vote that climaxed a 30-year fight to give elderly persons health care under Social Security. The measure must become law by midnight Saturday if the Social Security Administration is to be able to carry out its plan of making the increased Social Security payments effective with September checks. The $6.5-billion bill gives broad new hospital and nursing home care plus outpatient hos- services and to the 19 million Americans 65 and over. It also sets supplemental covering doctors' fees for services at home, in the office or in hospitals at a cost of $3 per month per person and a similar payment from the government. And it increases all present Social Security checks — for retired and disabled persons and family survivors — by 7 per cent retroactive to last Jan. 1. This will give 20 million persons increases of at least $4 a month. Social Security taxes will be increased to pay for the new programs. The wage base on which the tax is paid will go up from $4,800 at present to $6,600 next year. An employe earning trjat much would pay an additional $103.20 more next year.

He said he did not treat the Heavier Draft Calls, Recruiting Drives Planned Over 300,000 Men Likely to Be Added By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Defense Department probably will ask Congress to boost the regular military forces by 300,000 men or more in a gradual buildup through heavier draft calls and recruitment of volunteers. Sources disclosed this today as it became clear President Johnson had chosen a relatively slow course of girding for the long haul in Viet Nam, rather than a quick buildup using reservists and National Guardsmen. A boost of 300,000 regulars would swell U.S. military strength to about three million men. Much of the increase would be applied to the Army, sources said. Among other things, the Army will get one more division, probably mechanized infantry, to raise its division total to 17. More independent infantry brigades also are planned. An Army division totals about 15,000 men, a brigade about 4,000. * * * Johnson's move increasing the U.S. military commitment in Viet Nam by 50,000 men, to a total of 125,000, falls short of expectations.

A U.S. spokesman said the Viet Cong toll had not been confirmed by body count, but U.S. advisers at the scene concurred in the estimate. Government losses were described as "light to moderate." There was no word of casualties among Americans with the government forces. U.S. and Vietnamese war planes made 75 strikes in support of the ground operation, the spokesman said. Elsewhere in the delta a U.s Navy F8 Crusader bomber crashed into a field today while on a stafing run against the Viet Cong, U.S. sources said.

Johnson used the occasion to renew the apppeal for peace which he has been working into public statements whenever the chance arises. He said the American people 'are determined that men and nations shall hold steady to that course upward toward the sun of sanity and toward enlightenment and reason instead of war." At the end of the ceremony Johnson presented National Aeronautics and Space Administration medals to three key members of the Mariner team: —The Distinguished Service Medal to director William H. Pickering of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. —The Outstanding Leadership Medal to director Oran Nicks of NASA's lunar and planetary program —The Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal to Jack N. James of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Leighton said one of the photographs revealing craters is "one of the most remarkable scientific photographs of this century." Referring to another photograph covering an area in Mars south polar regions, he said some of the craters "appear to be rimmed with frost." Leighton said Mariner's pho- quotas. Officials said Wednesday no new induction centers will be necessary nor will any major change in policy be required. At the same time, Lt. Col. Robert Lundquist, Selective Service operations officer, said any specific effects could not ' be forecast until detailed orders came from Washington. Michigan recently has been drafting an average of 1,000 men a month. These have included some 20- year-olds Lundquist said the pool of 20-year-olds is large and there is a question whether an expanded draft will extend into the pool of 19-year-olds. The rate of induction was reported about on a level with the rate jf new names being added to the pool. The general pool includes about 76,000 men between the ages of 18 and 35. These men are classified as 1-A, subject to call. Lundquist said draft boards have encouraged eligible men to enlist in the reserves or in the service branch of their choice before being drafted. Present policies call for the induction of only single men between 20 and 26, Lundquist said. He said presently there are 19,000 men in this group. For the month of July, Michigan had orders to draft 673 men The August order has been lor 718 men and the Sep- woman but been flown from Uppsala. This treatment of infertile women consists of administering a drug produced from hormones from the human pituitary glands at the base of the brain. The method was pioneered five years ago by Gemzell. Experts say the dosage for each individual varies and that there is no certain method of determining exactly how much hormone is required to produce an ovum. The Sydney, Australia, Sun reported today that Mrs. Lawson, the mother of the New Zea-1 land quints, also had been given doses of a pregnancy-inducing hormone devloped by Dr. Gemzell. A Melbourne, Australia, doctor who furnished the hormone extract to the Auckland hospital at which the Sun said Mrs. Lawson was treated commented: "The dosage of the hormone is so critical that too much can cause multiple births." The National Women's Hospital in Auckland, where Mrs. Lawson's babies were born, refused to comment on the reports. Members of the Lawson i family were not available for I comment. j The Sydney Sun's report said ' Mrs. Lawson volunteered to take the hormone a year ago after she had experienced difficulty in becoming pregnant and was one of 15 such volunteers in a research unit at the National Women's Hospital. The Sun quoted a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the hospital, B.G. Bonham, as saying: "We are under instructions not to discuss any medical aspect of Mrs. Lawson's case. Therefore I cannot con- ered likely forcements, further U.S. rein- possibly as many as 50,000 more, may flow to the war zone by the end of the year. The new strengthening of forces in Viet Nam is well below what would be needed to bring about a 10-1 or even an 8-1 margin of superiority over the Communist guerrillas infesting the country. Some experts say such a ratio is essential. To reach a margin of 10 to 1 or 8 to 1, another 650,000 to 900,000 Americans would have to be poured into Viet Nam to reinforce the 550,000 South Vietnamese troops and the Americans already there or due to arrive under current plans. The buildup in South' Viet Nam is beginning to drain the strategic reserve of regular Army divisions based in the United States for use around the world.

Pilots Die as Planes Collide Over Thailand BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — Two F105 jet fighters collided over Thailand Tuesday. Both pilots were killed in the crash near Udorn in northeast Thailand. A U.S. military spokesman in Saigon announced Wednesday that two F105 jets collided and crashed while returning to home bases after a strike against missile sites. He did not disclose their home base. tives for rebuilding this strategic reserve — either by a combination of the heavier draft and stimulated enlistments or by callups of thousands of reservists and National Guardsmen. U.S. officials said Johnson decided against calling reservists and guardsmen to the colors because he and his advisers concluded such action was not necessary at this time. Plans for calling reservists are on the shelf, but the possibility they may be ordered up later remains. When intensive planning for a . possible muster began several weeks ago, the armed services put in tentative "shopping lists" totaling more than 220.000 guardsmen and reservists. Pentagon authorities hope that enlistments in all the services will increase under the spur of sharply increased draft calls. it it * The draft will rocket to 35,000 inductions a month starting probably with the October call. This is the biggest monthly quota since late in the Korean War. Draft officials said they would have no trouble delivering the extra men, but it may be more difficult to get deferments. For months, 17,000 men have been drafted monthly. This was a big jump over the 3,000 level of last February, but it wasn't due to Viet Nam — it was because enlistments fell off as rumors spread that the draft would he ended.
