Red China, on the otlier hand, has been attacking the idea put forward by Indian President Sarvepali Radhakrishnan w i t li mounting fury. Peking charged India with selling to "U.S. aggressors" and v "betrayal" of tlie Afro-As countries. The result, in the view of some U.S. officials, is likely to be increased sympathy for the U.S. position in Viet Nam as Red China continues to resist any proposal for endmg the fighting. Late last month, Radhakrish­ nan proposed a ceasefire in both North and South Viet Nam and the establishment of an Afro- Asian force to police the border between the two sections of the divided country. This would form a basis for negotiations in which represent- aties of the two sections would decide what they would want to do about tlie future of Viet Nam. The Tndian plan, which has been distributed to a wide number of interested nations, passed almost unnoticed in the rush of developments in the Dominican Republic. Radhakrishnan first!

Bold Reds attack factory S.AIGON (UPI)-A bold force of Communist guerillas masquerading as South Vietnamese Marines attacked a textile factory on the outskirts of Saigon today. Other Viet Cong units engaged government forces in heavy fighting 100 miles southwest of the capital. At Da Nang, site of the big U.S. air base, guerrillas tried a new harassing lactic against American Marines. A Viet Cong sniper shot a 13-inch arrow at a Leatherneck sentry. The wound was minor and the Marine was treated and returned to duty. The daring, daylight attack on the factory near Saigon was staged by an estimated platoon of guerrillas wearing what appeared to be Vietnamese uniforms. Five Vietnamese soldiers assigned to protect the plant and three civilians were wounded. The disguised guerrillas struck just as most of the em­ ployes were leaving for lunch. The plant is located in an in- Johnson: Red China shall never succeed in Viet Nam By MERRIMAN SMITH UPI White House Reporter WASHINGTON (UPO—Presi­ dent Johnson said today the Viet Nam conflict was part of a Chinese Communist drive to take over all of Asia and he pledged: "They shall never succeed." Johnson discussed the role of Chinese Reds in a While House I lies.' for unconditional discussions. And it would clearly be in the interest of North Viet Nam to come to the conference table. For them, continuation of war without talks means only damage without conquest. "Communist China apparently desires the war lo continue whatever the cost to their al- talk to an audience of editorial cartoonists. His remarks were televised and broadcast to the nation. "Their target is not merely South Viet Nam—it is Asia," he said of the Chinese Communists. "Their objective is not the fulfillment of Vietnamese nationalism. It is to erode and discredit America's ability to help prevent Chinese domination over all of Asia. In this they shall never succeed." Johnson in his speech renewed his call for unconditional peace talks and emphasized dustrial complex only five mUesjh's proposal of a massive South from downtown Saigon. The President said there was greater need than ever for peace talks and the setting up of the aid program because no purely military solution was in sight for either side. Johnson reiterated his readiness to talk peace, then devoted most of his 20-minute speech to the U.S. proposal for "a massive, cooperative development effort for Southeast -Asia" which he first unveiled in a speech last month at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He reported that his personal representative, Eugene Black, easi Asian aid program in i was making "rapid progress" The fighting in Bac lieu prov -l "''-^ J-j-'^^^^I^-fl:? j - ince southwest of Saigon involved an estimated battalion of!

Officials said reports .still had not been received from six subdivisions of the disaster area and from several hundred oO- shore islands. The tidal wave gloss over any apparent failure. "The launching of the automatic state Luna-5 is another step in our movement on the path lor a man to reach the moon," Red Star said. The article detailed the "serious engmeering problems" that must be overcome in a soft landing: the pull of the moon's gravity, the difficulty of turning on the retrorocket braking system in time, correction of last minute course mistakes^and the actual braking of the inoonship '0 a feathery landing. "To exercise the soft landing of apparatus on the moon it is necessary to slow down the speed of its fall with a braking system," Red Star said. "B u t this is not the most difficult part of tlie task. The main thing is to work out an automatic system of guiding the landmg." This left Western observers in the position of being able only ation of a system for a soft- landing on the moon's surface." Russians learned of the landing two hours later on a late- evening newscast. The Russian man-in-the-street was disappointed by the Luna news. "I must admit I'm crestfallen," said a Moscow office worker. "I thought we would hear something more. The report doesn't sound too encouraging, does it?" A student said, "it doesn't look like we have really reached the moon — too bad. But we are still ahead o£ you in space." (British scientists at the Jodrell Bank radio telescope station said flatly, "our interpretation of this is that it made a crash-landing on tlie lunar surface.")

Johnson said: "We are ready had found increasing enthusiasm at the United Nations for carrying forward the development plan. Part of the plan is an Asian development bank which the United Slates has been studying as a possibility. Johnson said this country was prepared to participate in and support the Asian bank to help finance economic progress. "And I reaffirm our desire to join with every other industrialized country, including the Soviet Union, in helping this great Asian project," he added. "I call on every industrialized country, including the Soviet Union, to create a better life for the people of Southeast Asia," he said. "Surely the works of peace can bring men together in a common effort to abandon forever the ways of war." Johnson spoke of Communist terrorists attempting to destroy humane programs of assistance in such fields as medical care and agricultural improvement. "Communist terrorists have made aid programs a special target of attack," he said in his prepared remarks. ".Agricultural stations are destroyed and medical centers burned. More than 100 Vietnamese malaria fighters are dead or miss­ ing. Our own aid officials have been wounded, killed or kid­ naped. "These are not the accidents of war. They are pari of a deliberate campaign — in the words of the Communists—'to cut the fingers off the hands of the government.' " Despite "circumstances of staggering adversity," Johnson said, economic and human progress had continued and would go on. "We intend lo continue and 'mcrease our material help to Viet Nam," he said. Johnson ticked off a long list of improvements which the South Vietnamese have made since 1954 with American as- stance. He cited doubled rice production, heavy increases in pig and corn output, establishment of new medical clinics and surgical facilities, heavily increased school enrollment and establishment of more than 700 new or rehabilitated factories. He strongly praised the Vietnamese people for making such improvements even while harrassed and attacked by the Viet Cong guerrilla forces.

Weekenders not enough Sfrawberry growers absolved of blame S.AN FR.ANCISCO (UPD—The Salinas Valley strawberry growers who turned away hundreds of potential workers tlie past weekend, while claiming to need 2.000 Mexican braceros. have been absolved of blame by tlie federal government. Glenn Brockway. the regional administrator of the U.S. Labor Department's Bureau of Employment Security, said Wednesday niglit that the growers just could not process all the persons who turned up last Saturday lo work in the strawberry harvest. The regional administrator said that as a result of the investigation he was giving the growers "a clean bill of health." Tlie growers, he said, were "overwhelmed" by the large numbers last Saturday. He said about 3.000 persons showed up at Salmas Strawberries, Inc., but only 1,300 were hired there. Brockway also disclosed that three steps would be taken tliis weekend to avoid a recurrence of last Saturday's incident. —Those who registered last weekend but did not got to go to work would be placed imme- diatly this weekend. —Portable personnel processing stands will be set up at numerous locations. —.And Cahfornia employment depai-tnient and federal farm ! labor officials will be on hand 'to help out with the personnel i processing. Jones fefis Sukarno of his leaving Jakarta JAKARTA (UPI) — Retiring U. S. Ambassador to Indonesia Howard P. Jones, will depart May 29 for tlie United States, the American Embassy announced today. Jones conferred today with President Sukarno to inform him who his successor would be. The new ambassador has not been officially announced. Jones, U.S. representative in Jakarta for the past seven years, is resigning from the for- ign service to becme chancellor of the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii. The United Slates was the tai-get again Wednesday of new demonstrations. Several hundred Indonesians, said to be members of tlie left wing government youth front, paraded in front of the American Consu­ late in Medan, North Sumatra. They were de m on s t r a ting against the American seizure of an Indonesian vessel in California. Police prevented the demonstrators from entering tlie consulate en masse. However, the U.S. Embassy here said a small delegation met with the U.S. consul. The seizure of the ship has prompted new Communist Party calls for a full break in Indonesian-U.S. diplomatic relations. The state-owned J a k ar t a Lloyd Company announced they would demand compensation from the American government. Communist-dominated harbor workers have threatened to retaliate by seizing any American ship. However, there have been no reports that the threat has been carried out. .Ala., sid it was obvious that Luna 5 was part of Russia's plan to place a man on tlic moon. "The Russians are interested in the moon perse," Uie former German scienfist said. "I am convinced they have a well-charted plan to land a man on the moon, but I cannot speculate as to when. I don't think tliey have the hardware to land a man on the moon now—but neither do we." The two -scientists were among a group attending an aerospace seminar at the Staller-Hilton Hotel. Pickering declined to forecast any troubles for the Surveyor soft landing on the moon. Russia apparently tried but failed to make a soft lunar landing with Luna 5. "Our Surveyor is on schedule. I believe," Pickering said. In a luncheon address. Von Braun said the United Slates is advancing on schedule with its plan to attempt a manned moon landing by 1970. Garcia German. Thunderstorms in Southeast By United Press International Thunderstorms continued to drum the Southeast today while scattered showers roamed the South Atlanfic coast. .A cold front pushed across the Midwest, sending temperatures below freezing in Michigan. Near 5 inches of rain drenched Rotan, Tex., Wednesday, flooding streets and forcing some 50 families from their homes. Hail also fell during the 90-minute deluge.

There was no immediate report from the loyalist military junta on the reported action but there were unofficial reports of skirmishes in that area Wednesday. Garcia also reported that 43 loyalist junta troops under lieutenants named Piantini and Echavarria who had been guarding a nail factory on Maximo Gomez Ave. defected to the rebels.

I ally only estimates — not firm There were some hopes thai very small token units of Latin .American military or police forces might be sent to the Dominican Republic by tliis weekend. Bui it appeared that considerably more organization and time would be needed to put together a hemisphere force which could in any meaningful way take over the role of the American Marines and paratroopers now in the country under U.S. command. There remained a possibility, however, of an early token withdrawal of some of these 22.000 U.S. troops even before a hemisphere force was created. This was discussed last week in the pledges. They came from about 10 countries. Brazil's estimate of about 800 was the largest. The majority were under 100, with the tentative offers ranging as low as 20. As of Wednesday m'glit only Honduras had made a formal offer of forces to Dr. Jose A. Mora, secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS). It did not say how many men might be sent or how soon. The OAS passed a historic resolution one week ago to set up the hemisphere's first joint peace-keeping force. It has yel to announce any plans or details for establishing the "unified command" called for in the resolution. Kennedys in London for dedication ceremonies LONDON (UPI) — 11 was a kind of "homecoming" for Robert and Edward Kennedy. For Jacqueline Kennedy it was a time to remember happier days. \nA for little Caroline and John Jr. it was a time to learn. The Kennedy family arrived here Wednesday night to attend ceremonies dedicating Britain's John F. Kennedy Memorial — a simple monument at historic Runnymede. Queen Elizabeth 11 wiU unveil the memorial Friday on hallowed ground where King John signed the Magna Carta 750 years ago. After the ceremony, Mrs. Kennedy, the Kennedy brothers and the two children wUl have tea at Windsor CasUe with the Queen and Prince PhUip. Sens. Robert and Edward are no strangers to England. They lived here during the war when their father, Joseph P. Kennedy, was U.S. ambassador to the court of St. Jame's. Mrs. Kennedy has been a frequent visitor to London. Her sister. Princess Lee Radziwill, lives in London in a big house not far from Buckingham Palace. Today. Mrs. Kennedy took the children to the palace to watch the colorful changing of the guard ceremony. Princess Radziwill and her two children went along. The master of the palace household, Maj. Sir Mark Milbank, was informed by police when the Kennedys lined up outside the railings to watch and immediately invited them inside. The children were given soft drinks in the little rooms by the privy purse door where the visitors book is kept. Then they walked into the forecourt to see the new guard march in. For Caroline, 7, and "Joiin- John," 4,- it was something of a new experience — flying to London from New Y'ork in a special White House jethner. It is probable that Mrs. Kennedy has carefully explained the significance of the Runnymede memorial to the two children, telling how the Magna Carta stands as one of the historic touchstones of freedom and justice. KENNEDY MEMORIAL - Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy and children John Jr. and Caroline are in England with other members of the Kennedy family for the dedication by Queen Elizabeth of a memorial 1o President Kennedy. The site is Runnymede, the meadow where the Magna Carta was signd 750 years ago. (NEA Telephoto)
