MORE MUSCLE FOR VIET NAM—Draft calls will be doubled to 35,000 monthly to raise U.S. manpower in Viet Nam to 125,000 men, President Johnson informed the nation in his televised White House press conference. A crack air assault and infantry unit also will be committed to the struggle, but there is to be no callup of reserves as yet.

Today, Pentagon sources said the Defense Department probably will ask Congress to boost the regular U.S. military forces gradually by at least 300,000 men through draft calls and recruitment. * * * It was learned also that the U.S. air attack Tuesday on two missile sites near Hanoi was partly responsible for Johnson's decision not to call up reservists now. 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.

By PETER ARNETT SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division, successors to the World War II heroes of Normandy and Bastogne, came to the war in South Viet Nam today. As 3,700 men of the lOlst's First Brigade began landing at Cam Ranh Bay, 180 miles northeast of Saigon, a U.S. spokesman said giant B52 jet bombers of the U.S. Strategic Air Command dumped 500 tons of bombs on suspected Viet Cong positions 35 miles southeast of Saigon. After the B52 raid — the sixth in South Viet Nam by the Okinawa-based bombers — several thousand paratroopers of the 173rd Airborne Brigade began Signing of Bill Expected Soon WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress has completed its work on the Social Security-health care bill and President Johnson is expected to sign it into law either Friday or Saturday. 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 hospital diagnostic services and home health visits to the 19 million Americans 65 and over. It also sets up a voluntary supplemental insurance plan 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 that much would pay an additional $103.20 more next year. combing the hilly area. By late today one Viet Cong had been killed, another captured, and there were no U.S. casualties, the spokesman reported. North of the border, a U.S. Air Force RF101 photo-reconnaissance jet was shot down and the pilot was presumed killed while photographing one of the two surface-to-air missile sites attacked Tuesday by 46 fighter-bombers. The site was 40 miles northwest of Hanoi. A U.S. spokesman said the weapon used apparently was conventional. + * * The paratroopers who landed at Cam Ranh Bay were greeted by the man their division who commanded when it dropped into Normandy to spearhead the invasion of France, Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor. It was one of Taylor's last official acts in Viet Nam. He leaves Saigon Friday, to be replaced by Henry Cabot Lodge. Among the arrivals was Taylor's son Thomas, an intelligence officer with the brigade. The landing came less than 24 hours after President Johnson announced U.S. forces in Viet Nam would be increased from 7,500 to 125,000 men. But a U.S. spokesman said the brigade was part of a six-battalion Governor of Maine Wins Close Vote for Conference Chairman By JACK BELL MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — The National Governors Conference installed GOP Gov. John H. Reed of Maine as its new chairman today in a 22-20 vote that cut across party lines.

This was disclosed today by space agency scientists in a report to the White House. The report covered findings on 18 previously unpublished photographs taken by Mariner 4 on its epochal voyage to the planet. The scientist who made the main report said that the findings "will profoundly affect scientific views about the origin of the solar systems," and specifically may shed new light on the history of the earth. Dr. Robert Leighton of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., said the latest released pictures of the red planet reveal 70 craters ranging in diameter from 3 to 75 miles. He said that if the rest of the planet area photographed Mariner during a is like the July 14 by period of 25 minutes, there must be "more than 10,000 craters (on Mars) compared to a mere handful on the earth."

On the battlefield, an estimated 192 Viet Cong guerrillas were reported killed in a big government operation launched Wednesday in the Mekong Delta 100 miles southwest o Saigon. 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. The sources said the plane from the U.S. carrier Bon Homme Richard, failed to pull out of a dive and was destroyed when it hit. The pilot was not seen to eject. The crash occurred about 65 miles south of Saigon. they had decided to "play it by ear" on the nomination of Reed. Several colleagues said Reed was not asked in the caucus to withdraw. Democrats outnumber Republican governors 33-17. Hatfield said his criticism of President Johnson's course in Viet Nam evidently worked against his choice for the chairmanship. Reed has given all out support to Johnson's escalation of U.S. military forces in South Viet Nam and the general course Johnson has been following in Southeast Asia.

No injuries or damages were reported. The quake was felt at military installations in the area. One report from Shemya said, "It was a real good one." The earthquake was another in a series of sharp jolts which of water makes the prospect of finding life there "less promising," he said. The scientist took the view that if life does exist on Mars in some promitive form — perhaps bacterial or plant life — Mars "may be the best, perhaps the only, place in the solar system for preserving primitive conditions." The report was presented at a White House ceremony in which President Johnson remarked that he was "a little bit relieved your" photographs didn't show more signs of life out there." He said he felt this way because he belonged to the generation which writer-actor-produc- eral Hospital said two boys died and that two girls and a boy remained alive in oxygen tents.

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.

Catton was cited in 1954 for his book, "A Stillness at Appomattox." 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 photographs of the planet disclose "no earthlike features such as mountain chains, great valley or continental masses" and there is no evidence of clouds. He sa'd from study of the photographs so far these inferences about Mars can be drawn: 1. In terms of evolutionary history Mars is "more moonlike than earthlike." ; 2.

No Difficulty Arising for SS LANSING (AP) — Michigan's Selective Service sees no difficulty arising from President Johnson's doubling of the draft quotas. Officials said Wednesday no new induction centers will be necessury 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' toe 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 ihere 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.

A Melbourne, Australia, doctor who furnished the hdrrnone 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 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 th'e regular military forces by 300,)00 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, prpbi ably mechanized infantry, to raise its division total to 17« More independent infantry brigades also are planned. Ah 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. But it is' considered likely further U.S. reinforcements, possibly as many as 50,000 more, may flow to the war zone by the end of the year.

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 for 718 men and the September order for 588. Lundquist said ,the pool of 19- year-olds totals about 7,000. He said the Michigan quota has averaged between 4 and 4.5 per cent of the national call and that he expected this proportion to hold Lundciuist said that if necessary married men without children in the 19 to 26 age group would be drafted., He said there are about 25,000 men in' this group.

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 confirm she has been receiving hormones but I do not deny it. We are writing up Mrs. Lawson's case as a matter of urgency for publication in the medical journals of New Zealand and Australia and in The Lancet in Britain." The Sun said the hormone treatment given Mrs. Lawson was pioneered about four years ago by Prof. Gemzell. The Sun quoted an expert on hormone treatment in Sydney as saying it was successful in about one of 10 cases of infertile women and that it caused development of an increased of ova. Pilots Die as Planes Collide Over Thailand BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — Two P1Q5 jet fighters collided over Thailand Tuesday. Both pilots were killed in the cra^h 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 reservr ists and National Guardsmen.- U.S. officials said Johnson decided against calling reservists and guardsmen to,the colors because he .arid 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. • * *:';•*• .
