UN Members Study Viet Nam Situation Beaming Truman Sees LBJ Sign Medicare Bill Ceremony Is Held In Truman Library By FRANK CORMIER INDEPENDENCE, Mo. lAP) — "Mr. President, I'm glad to have lived this long," said a beaming Harry S. Truman, moving Into the spotlight for a sentimental moment at the age of 81. Then, at President Johnson's elbow, Truman witnessed the signing into law Friday of legislation for health care of the aged such as he proposed 20 years ago. The S6.5-billion bill also increases old age payments and otherwise broadens the Social Security System, raising pay roll taxes to pay most of the cost.

"It was Harry Truman of Missouri," said Johnson, "who planted the seeds of compassion and duty which today flower into care for the sick and serenity for the fearful." Truman said the new law will provide dignity, not charity, "for those of us who have moved to the sidelines." Though visibly tired after the excitement of the afternoon, Truman rode the dozen miles with Johnson from the library to Kansas City Municipal Airport to see the President off on the flight to his Texas ranch, where the President and his wife are spending the weekend.

Fourteen Viet Cong were ™ da >' »0 »««i north- ment in Tin By H. L. SCHWARTZ III PITTSBURGH (AP) — ' The United Steelworkers and the basic steel industry, facing the threat of a strike for the second time in three months, were outwardly confident today they could beat a Sept. 1 deadline. The Steelworkers' 163-member wage policy committee, branding the industry unrealistic, inflexible and penny-pinching, voted as expected Friday to serve 30 days strike notice Aug. 1. Despite the harsh statement, union President I. W. Abel said "certainly a contract can be written in less than 30 days." Chief industry negotiator R. Conrad Cooper labeled the union statement "the tired old tactic of blaming us." In a prepared statement he said strike notice "would not persuade the companies to grant demands that are not in the best interests of em- ployes, companies, customers and the nation." Cooper, however, held out hope in off the cuff remarks that settlement, could be reached in time to avert what would be the nation's first steel strike since the crippling 116- day shutdown of 1959. Committee Approves Urban Department WASHINGTON (AP) — A measure to give the nation's cities a place in the President's cabinet has received the approval of the Senate Government Operations Committee. The House - passed proposal would create a department of housing and urban- development, primarily from the Housing and Home Finance Agency and its satellites.

Vietnamese losses were "very light." * * * In the heaviest of three raids against the north, four U.S. Navy^ A4 Skyhawks from the carrier Independence hit a transportation terminal 60 miles south of Hanoi. Pilots reported two railroad cars derailed, one truck damaged, a warehouse hit and a railroad spur damaged. Fires were reported in the area after the strike. U.S. and Vietnamese war planes flew more than 500 sorties in South Viet Nam during the 24-hour period ending this morning. About 275 Viet Cong were killed but the figure was an estimate, not based / on body count. Prime Minister Nguyen Cao Ky was quoted today as saying the South Vietnamese armed forces would be increased in the near future, and that the buildup would continue until victory. Ky did not elaborate, however, in the Interview with a Vietnamese language daily newspaper. The South Vietnamese armed forces now total about 500,000, including the- popular forces stationed in the country's 44 provinces. * * .* American spokesmen announced these other developments: — In the air war, four Marine A4 Skyhawks dropped six tons of bombs Friday night on a suspected Viet Cong clandestine radio station 40 miles northwest of strategic Da Nang air base.

Use of Chinese Troops Proposed WASHINGTON (AP)— House Republican Leader Gerald R. Ford of Michigan joined Sen. Jack R. Miller, R-Iowa, today in advocating the use of Nationalist Chinese forces in South Viet Nam. Forft, in a program with Miller taped for radio-television use in Iowa, said he thoroughly agrees with those who say, "We ought to use the Chinese Nationalists for this purpose." Ford repeated his insistence that Congress must "make a thorough investigation" before President Johnson makes any decision to call up the reservists to fight in Viet Nam. ' Miller told Ford he thought the idea of calling in "thousands and thousands of more American troops when there are ready willing and able fine Na- tionlaist Chinese troops to be used in South Viet Nam" is something that ought to be "very, very carefully considered." Ford, in agreeing said the Nationalist Chinese "are orientals, they are good fighters." He added that "Most military experts would agree that the United States should not become bogged down in a large-scale ground war in the jungles and swamps of Southeast Asia." More Than 100 Officers Stand By at Americus Negro Leaders Plan More Demonstrations By JOE ZELLNER AMERICUS, Ga. (AP) — More than 100 state troopers and city policemen armed with riot guns stood by today as Negro leaders planned more demonstrations in this south Georgia city, the scene of a slaying and racial violence, the past two weeks. Funeral services were to be held late today for Andrew A. Whatley Jr., a 21-year-old white man killed by shots fired from a passing car Wednesday night. Two Negroes have been charged with murder in the slaying. Benjamin Van Clarke, a field worker for Dr. Martin Luther King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference, led the last of three marches on -the courthouse Friday night after city officials ignored an ultimatum demanding an immediate meeting of a biracial committee, which has been formed to help ease racial tensions here. Mayor T. Griffin Walker said he would reply to the ultimatum today. Negro leaders said that downtown stores would be picketed in an effort to get merchants to bring pressure on city officials. Speaking to a group of about 200 demonstrators who made the third march to the courthouse Friday night, Willie Bolden, another SCLC field worker, asked the Negroes to boycott the merchants. He told the crowd that King would address a rally Monday night. ' • • The three marches Friday were made despite a plea from Bodies of Two Dallas Coeds Are Found in Vacant Field By GARTH JONES AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) — Crime detection experts said early today a eVa-hour autopsy showed Susan Rigsby had been strangled by a powerful attacker. Justice of the Peace Jerry Dellana, conducting the inquest, said results were inconclusive as to what caused the death of Shirley Ann Stark. The sun-blackened bodies of the two sorority sisters who vanished 12 days ago were found Friday sprawled in a weed-grown vacant field near the northern edge of Austin. Dellana said pathological tests and X-rays detected no broken bones or skull fractures and no sign of violent blows being struck the nearly nude bodies. Col. Homer Garrison, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said some fingerprints were obtained from one body. When asked if the dresses on the bodies were the same they wore when last seen, Garrison replied: "There are some things pertinent to the current investigation they are not ready to reveal." The black-haired, 21-year-old beauties were last seen driving on a street near the University of Texas campus July 18. Both were from Dallas. Rose was aided by two Dallas dentists who had done work for the young women, Dr. R. M Brumage and Dr. John L. Mitchell. Late Friday night Brumage positively identified Miss Stark by a bridge he placed in her mouth in 1962. About 2 a.m. today Mitchell added identification of Miss Rigsby. "There is no question about it," Mitchell said. "The dental charts and X-rays both make it positive." Quiet shock was the reaction in the Dallas homes of the two at word the search for them had ended. "It hurts so.much to go in her room and know she won't be back to wear the clothes in the closet or sit and talk to me late at night, " said Mrs. J. Neill Kinard, the aunt and guardian with whom Miss Stark made her home. * * * "A settlement would be almost immediately possible if the parties could settle the hard core problem, namely — how much?" he said. Cooper and Abel, appearing at separate news conferences, confirmed that the union is seeking wage and benefit increases of about 18 cents an hour per man and that, the industry, has offered nine cents! The length of a contract is apparently not a big issue. These are virtually the same positions both held when an interim contract was signed last April 28 averting a May^ 1 strike. Steelworkers now earn an average of $4.40 an hour in wages and benefits. Cooper said negotiations had reached the point where only the nine cent difference needed to be resolved. The wage policy said the industry had been "inflexible" also in the major .contract issues of pensions, insurance and supplemental unemployment benefits. The union won 11.5 cents an hour in the interim contract, but Cooper said Friday that the cost of a short-term agreement was less important than the cost in a long-term contract. He had said last April that the House Group To Visit U. P. LANSING (AP) — The house towns and counties committee is going off by itself for three days next month to study and familiarize itself with county home rule, says Chairman Rep. Francis Beedon, D-Muskegon. Except, it won't exactly be by itself, he said: "we've decided to take our families along to the Upper Peninsula—at the members' own expense, of course." The committee, which now has R county home rule bill under consideration, will spend the mayor and City Council for an end to demonstrations after the death of Whatley, a Marine Corps recruit, who was shot as he stood at a gas station with several other white youths. The last march Friday took place after Clarke said he would call off demonstrations temporarily if the biracial committee would go into session. When the ultimatum was ignored, the Negroes began their third march to the courthouse. It was made under heavy police guard and completed without incident. Willie Ricks, a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, told the group of marchers: "I think that if we can't build Americus, we should tear it down." U.S. to Send Group To UN Conference . WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is planning to send a delegation next week to a U.N. conference in Ulan Bator, capital of Mongolia. The United States does ' not recognize the remote Asian country which is nestled between China and Russia and is considered pro-Soviet. Mrs. Gladys Tillett, American i representative to the U.N. Commission on the Status of Wom- <?«r,,in«r nf g *?^ r OT .f sser - > en, will be the U.S. delegate to Serving of strike notice was the Aug . 3 _ 17 seminar on ,, the routine, a necessary move for the union to protect itself under provislona of the interim contract. That pact called for either side to serve notice of termination on or after Aug. 1. One other factor crept into the situation Friday. President Johnson conferred with Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz and ordered him to keep close tabs on the negotiations. Neither Cooper nor Abel made it clear, but it was presumed that top-level talks would start on a daily basis Monday. FDR Jr. Seeks Ruling On Employment Ads WASHINGTON (AP)—Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., head of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, says he's seeking expert help to determine whether "Help Wanted—Male" and 'Help Wanted — Female" ads Aug 23-25 in the U.

The act,' mainly aimed at racial discrimination, also bars Job discrimination on the basis of sex. Roosevelt's commission has the job of overseeing the part of the 1 law that deals with discrimination in employment. participation of women in public life." s Officials Ordered To Stop Violence BOGALUSA, La. ,(AP) — This city's ranking police officials were under federal court orders today to stop civil, rights, violence or face jail and $100-a-day fines. U.S. Dist. Judge Herbert W. Christenberry issued the ultimatum Friday to safety Commissioner Arnold Spiers and Police Chief Claxton Knight. He gave them one week to make changes which would insure protection to civil rights demonstrators. Spiers and Knight, along with a rookie city policeman, Donald Penton, were cited for civil contempt. The charges came after a series of attacks on civil rights pickets by angry whites. Christenberry told the police earlier this month in a sweeping injunction that they had to protect the marchers and pickets. His orders followed closely recommendations made by U.S. Asst. Atty Gen. John Doar. The plans include training .classes for officers and signed' statements by each policeman of compliance with the orders under penalty of disciplinary action. Although Spiers and Knight wouldn't comment on the orders, their attorney Jack Martzell said some of the plans are already being carried out. Segregationists and klansmen were summoned to a rally tonight at nearby Cross Roads, Miss., the third Klan conclave in 20 days. The rural Mississippi Community is just across the Pearl River from Bogalusa. This papermill community has. been the target of civil rights activities for more than six months. A doctor and nurse went with a minister to the home of Mrs. Robby Rigsby, Susan's mother. Friends asked newsmen to step outside onto the front porch. "She really had some faint hope they might be found alive," said Katie McKenna, a college friend of Miss Rigsby. The bodies were discovered shortly after noon Friday, ending one of the most baffling missing person hunts in recent Texas history. Chester Guynes, member of a city surveying crew, set up his transit a few feet off Cooper Lane in a vacant residential development area just outside the Austin city limits. Guynes noticed an odor and walkd another 20 feet into the weeds. 'I walked right up on one body," Guynes said. ' "I turned around and went back to the other boys and said, 'We've found the girls."' Police found .the other body about 12 feet away. Scattered weeds and grass had been spread over them. There had been no attempt to dig graves. Both bodies were on their backs, dresses pulled up under the arms. Texas Ranger Capt? Clint Peoples said there were no shoes jr other personal belongings One wore a ring and the other earrings. Kalamazoo Girl Is Winner Of Miss Michigan Contest MUSKEGON (AP)—A brown- haired, blue-eyed college junior who became an American citizen just six weeks ago will represent Michigan in this year's Miss America Pageant. Esther Lynne Smith, 19, of Kalamazoo, a native of Vlaar- dingeti. The Netherlands, said she entered the Miss Michigan contest here "just for the experience "I didn't expect to win," she said. "T can't feel a thing. I'm numb." Miss .Tnith, the reigning Miss Western Michigan University, won out over 48 other state beauties, She came to the United States with her family nine years ago. Her victory brought her a $1,000 scholarship; a wardrobe worth $2.000 and the use of a 1965 Oidsmobile convertible for one year Esther, a voice major at Debate Decision illBeMadeby Security Council Action is Prompted By Request of U.S. : UNITED NATIONS, N.T.. (AP) — Prompted by a U.^ request for help In finding V peace formula for Viet Nam, U.N. Security Council members began conferring today on whether to launch a debate on the Asian conflict. There was speculation that nonpermanent members of tbjt ll-nation council might reviv£, earlier attempts to hold a session on Viet Nam. They sounded. out the United States and tft> Soviet Union about a Viet Naih debate last February when thjs U.S. air strikes began against North Viet Nam. Both big po^. ers were reported cool. ' Nonpermanent' council mera- jers are Bolivia, Ivory Coast 7 , Jordan, Malaysia, Netherlands and Uruguay. It was not d^closed which ones have be6ii pushing for debate on Viet Narrt.

" "The United -States stands ready," he said, "to collaborate unconditionally with member's of the Security Council in . $he search for an acceptable forrqu- la to restore peace and security to that area of the world. ;, * * * Thdre were no obvious foot prints or tire, tracks. A .27-inch rain fell in the area Thursday. The bodies were about a half- mile from the spot where a bundle of dresses and other clothing of Miss Rigsby/ and Miss Stark was found in a roadside ditch July 20. The night of July 21 officers found Miss Stark's bright yellow sports car abandoned, dustfy but undamaged, behind an apartment house near the university. There was a spot of blood on the front passenger seat but ho other mark of violence. Closer examination showed the undercarriage of the car had been scratched and scraped, as if driven over rough, plowed grounc : The clothes and the abandoned car had been the only definite clues until the bodies were found.

The new Miss Michigan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Smfth, has four brothers and four sisters. She's fourth-oldest. Her tattler is a manufacturing representative for a corn oil and starch firm in Decatur, 111.

Negroes Told To Defy Draft JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A militant civil rights group that called for Negroes to defy the draft has expanded its urgings to "freedom school" classes of teen-age Negroes. .Ranier Selig, a Freedom Democratic party worker from Chicago, said today he had instructed nearly 50 students in McComb, in "the evils of the bomb and what we can do to stop this war in Viet Nam." Selig told a newsmen he devoted an all-day session of his freedom school class to the Viet Nam war. Selte said the antlmllitary feeling had been "sort of in the air for quite a while, but only when we put in in writing did it catch on." The writing was a leaflet passed out in Negro communities across, the state urging Negro mothers to stop their sons from honoring the draft and asking Negroes in the armed services to stage hunger strikes. The leaflet was reprinted in the Freedom Democratic party's official newsletter and posted on the headquarters bulletin board. In theory, these provisions would make it possible for the council to call on South. Viet Nam, North Viet Nam, the United States, the Soviet Union , ; and Communist China to confer f On peace in Viet Nam. : 2 Koreans Given ,'» Death Sentences SEOUL, Korea (AP.) — Two South Korean army colonels were sentenced to death today after a courtmartial b o a r d found them guilty of plotting to overthrow the government of President Chung Hee Park.
