Ford Jr. said today he has suspicion that information on a Viet Nam conference between President Johnson and congressional leaders last week "was leaked from the White House." The House Republican leader, regarded as the apparent target Heath Loses His 1st Verbal Duel LONDON lAP) — Two leading British newspapers said today that Edward Heath, making his parliamentary debut as Conservative party leader, lost a verbal duel with Labor Prime Minister Harold Wilson. "He lost by a knockout," the independent Times -oL-iondon said. "When it comes to the art of infighting, Mr. Wilson has no peer. By the same token, Mr. Heath has a lot to learn." "Disappointmenet was sadly and generally registered by Conservatives when they heard their new leader," said the conservative Daily Telegraph. The House of Commons debate Monday night centered on a motion by Heath expressing no confidence in the Labor government and deploring Wilson's handling of the affairs of state. With the 10 Liberal members abstaining, the government defeated the motion 303-200. Heath accused the Laborites of destroying confidence by over dramatizing the extent of Britain's financial crisis and by using piecemeal measures to ease it. The new Tory chief avoided verbal fireworks in his first major speech as party leader. And Wilson brought the packed benches to a fever by taunting the previous Conservative government with having secretly prepared every kind of emer- of Johnson's blast at "a promt-1 nent member of another party" over the reports, did not elaborate. But in a television interview iTODAY — NBC) he did deny anew that he was the source of the controversial accounts. At issue was a published report that a memorandum read at the White House session by Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana influenced Johnson's choice not to call up National Guard and reserve units. Johnson said that was untrue, and took the view that the leak was in "perhaps malicious" form. Ford said most of the significant information on the meeting had leaked from other sources by the next morning and much of it was given at a Pentagon press briefing the following day. "I broke no confidence," Ford asserted. He said he thought it would be best to drop the whole thing. That part of his comment today was about the same thing he had said Monday. Ford denied mentioning the Details of Viet Buildup Settled At Conference Military Leaders Have Secret Meet t : HONOLULU (AP) — Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said today a strategy conference of military leaders here had settled some details involved in deploying 50,000 more American troops in South Viet Nam. "We were able to settle some of the details of implementing : the President's decision and I i feel we are on a sound basis for j carrying out the President's decision," Wheeler told a news conference after the secret eight-hour conference. Demonstrators Are Arrested At Chicago, Allendale, S. C. By PATRICK E. O'KEEFE t CHICAGO (AP) — Sixty-five civil rights demonstrators, most of them Negroes, chanted and sang around the South Side block where Mayor Richard J. Daley lives and were arrested Monday night. Residents of the all-white, middle-class neighborhood were out in force to watch as police hauled the marchers away in police vans.

It's always unwise to tell the enemy what you're planning to do," he said. In the talks, working out details of the build-up announced last Wednesday by the President, also were Gen. William C. Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in South Viet Nam; Adm. U.S. Grant Sharp, Pacific military commander in chief, and a score of other military leaders from Washington, Pearl Harbor and Saigon. Wheeler said the United States had several alternatives in gaining the troops necessary for the build-up. "After all," he said, "the military power of the United States is quite ample.

He issued a let's-get-on-with-the-work statement in which, however, he did contend that the main opposition to Johnson's military decisions comes from congressional Democrats, especially in the Senate. And he said Communist leaders would be happy to see a name-calling contest develop. The White House refused any countercomment. Whether it was a case of mistaken identity remains unclear, but Johnson used one of the world's greatest forums, the presidential news conference, to Questioned about plans in Washington affecting National Guard units, General Wheeler said, "I'm sure this is a matter the Army is attempting to sort out right now." He declined to name units that might be called, but added, "However, I would say they are well located."

They made the same march Sunday night, but there were no incidents. After they had walked around the block a few times, Police Capt. Howard Pierson stepped forward and three times asked them to disperse. Some 15 marchers left and the remaining 65, led by Gregory, were herded into vans and hauled away. Police said they would be charged with disorderly conduct. "Do not go limp. Do not give the police any trouble. We have not broken the law," Gregory told his followers. As the vans pulled away, some 500 white persons who had been watching threw objects at the vehicles. Inside the vans, demonstrators chanted: "We want our freedom." Pierson said he had not contacted the mayor, who reportedly was inside his red-brick bungalow, before making the arrests. After the arrests, four plainclothes policemen stationed themselves in front of the mayor's home, which is guarded front and rear 24 hours a day by uniformed men. The white crowd was dispersed by police. The demonstrators were hailed with catcalls and jibes as they entered, the mayor's neighborhood.

Strom of the State Law Enforcement Division said an additional 50 troopers were ordered to Allendale Monday night "as a preventive measure." In Columbia, U.S. Dist. Atty.

McNair, who was reared in this farming town of about 5,000, said, "No one will be allowed unlawfully to demonstrate or disrupt activities in any courthouse in this state."

Ford told a news conference Monday he wasn't going to be "baited into a verbal donnybrook" with the President. He said that to do so "would play into the hands of Hanoi, Peiping and Moscow." Sen. Karl Mundt, R-S.D., called Johnson's statement a "rather intemperate attack," but. immediately added he thought a "breakdown in communications somewhere between the White House and Jerry Ford's office" was responsible. In an ABC radio news interview, Mundt went on to say the affair emphasizes that Republicans should be consulted more before plans for Viet Nam are made, "but I don't think that either Jerry Ford or Lyndon Johnson wear hairshirts to the point where one particular disenchanting experience is going to create a permanent schism between them." for said the past Peking's seven efforts with disorderly conduct.

There is new hope, too, that maybe 7-month-old Tina can be kept alive until medical science finds a cure for cystic fibrosls. Now, University of medical experts say brosis victims live into their 20s, but others die before they are five. The burden-easing came almost overnight, with the publicizing of the Lillie family's sacrifices for little, newly arrived Tina. It takes $70 worth of medicine a week to keep Tina alive. That's a lot of money for a fireman's family, even if he does drive a truck on his "days off." Of course there are doctor bills on top of medicine. Now Tina will get her medicine free. Mrs. Pearl Lillie began work Monday as a drill press operator at a Ypsilanti auto trim factory. Tina's father, Eldred, - 36,; mucus. knew what they were.
