LBJ Asks $1.7 Billion in Defense Funds Navy Will Take Draftees for 1st Time Since '56 Extensions of Duty Also Are Considered By KLTON C. FAY WASHINGTON (APi — The Navy .set out today to muster the first draftees it has used in a decade. It also is considering Involuntary extensions of duty Tor skilled men whose enlistments are expiring. The service is suggesting that Its total manpower be increased by about 35,000, but this figure Is still under scrutiny by both Navy and Defense Department officials. A Pentagon call for the biggest Army draft quotas since midpoint in the Korean War carried a provision for the Navy, to get 4.600 draftees in October. A Defense Department announcement Tuesday was the first official step putting into effect President Johnson's order to raise monthly draft quotas from the previous 17.000 level to as high as 35,000. * * * The department did three things: 1. Revised the 17.000 call for September, which was issued only 12 days ago, to a new total of 27.400 men. all for the ; Army. 2. Requested a quota ofi 33.600 in October, the biggest levy since the 80.000 monthly quotas at trie peak of the Ko- i rean War. 3. Specified that 4.600 of the October quota be for the Navy. The Marines and Air Force, as usual, requested no draftees. The Navy's last request for draftees was made for two months late in 1955 and one j month early in 1956 when the! number of volunteers fell to a' point where the Navy was under its required strength. Today, the Navy's need arises from several factors. More ships are coming into service, largely because of the requirements oi the war in Viet Nam, but also as part of a general buildup. * * * More men are needed to man such support craft as amphibious ships. They also are needed to fill out crews of ships under strength. And it is estimated that more men are needed for some of the shore stations which contribute directly to support of the Viet Nam conflict. What the Navy says it needs Is more technically trained enlisted men, able to take over the complex electronic gear on ships and to maintain and repair aircraft and their engines. The Navy, the Defense Department said in answer to a question, still has legal authority carried over from the Korean War to order involuntary extension of active duty, but ! only with the approval of the secretary of defense. The Army j and Air Force do not have this authority and would have to obtain congressional approval if i they wished to freeze enlistments.

Thomas G. Abernethy says a reported appeal to Negroes not to honor draft calls is treasonable and insulting to the President and people. The Mississippi Democrat referred to a report that the Mississippi Fredom Democratic Party, a predominantly Negro organization which is trying to unseat him and four other Mississippi representatives, had circulated such an appeal. Jackson, Miss., reports said the leaflet urged Negro mothers to keep their sons from honoring the draft and called on Negroes in the armed services to stage hunger strikes. Lawrence Guyat, executive secretary of the Freedom Democrats, said the statement was not an official policy statement of the group. Abernethy protested in telegrams to Johnson and Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey and also spoke in the House. Another Legal Hurdle Cleared Leonard Tilton of Montreal, who was a rear seat passenger in a car driven by Marvin Morrison, 19, of W. Hautanen Road, Ironwood Township, authorities stated. Miss Tilton's death is the third traffic fatality this year in an area comprised of Gogebic and Ontonagon Counties, Mich., and Iron County in both houses of state legislatures must be apportioned on the basis of population. Javits' proposal lost 85-12 on a roll call. Leaders hoped for a vote later in the day on Dirksen's amendment. It has the backing of Democratic Leader Mike Mans-! field of Montana, but Dirksen dscribed the outcome as "very iffy." It would permit geography and political subdivisions as well as population to be taken into account in apportioning one louse of a state legislature, if the people approved in a referendum. Javits' substitute also would lave permitted these additional factors to be used so long as any apportionment plan approved by the people bore "a reasonable relationship to the the needs of the state." With a two-thirds majority required for approval, opponents thought they had enough votes .o defeat Dirksen's meas- j ure. But they left the way open to filibuster against it if necessary.

The impact caused Miss Tilton to be thrown from t h e back seat through the windshield and onto the ground about 20 feet from the vehicle, according to th report. She was pronounced dead at the scene by County Coroner Robert Zielinski. Morrison and two other p a s- sengers in the car, De n n i s Saari, 18, of Erwin Towns h ip, and Miss Roberta Brown, 1 6 , of 117 S. Range Road, were seriously injured. The full extent of their injuries is not yet known, according to the attending physician. They are all being treated at Grand View Hospital. Morrison is reported to have sustained a fractured nose anc head lacerations. Saari received a fracture of the right thigh bone, arm and head lacerations and a concussion. Miss Brown is reported to have sustained a fractured pelvis. Because of the injuries, Acting Sheriff Prebish said he had been unable to talk extensively to any of the survivors to find out exactly how the accid e n t happened. The Saari youth was sitting in the front seat and Miss Brown was in the back seat at the time of the mishap, Prebish reported. The car, Prebish added, is a total wreck, the force of the impact causing the front end t o telescope. An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the accident is continuing, Prebish said.

Dirksen said he had asked Johnson at a White House conference about 10 days ago why the President was interfering in the reapportionment matter. "The President said he hadn't interfered, that he had promised me he wouldn't and that he hadn't," Dirksen told a newsman. "So I asked him what Humphrey was doing. He said he didn't know anything about it until tie read it in the paper. "I said, 'Well call him up then and give him hell and tell him to stop' " Dirksen said he didn't know if tHe call had been made but that lately Humphrey hadn't been around the Senate much "and he wasn't in the cloakrooms, either " Humphrey was in Miami Tuesdav to speak to the National Urban League. An aide to Humphrey said he knew of no such call from Johnson buc it could have been made without his knowledge. He said Humphrey hadn't been active recently in the reapportionment matter because he believed there were sufficient votes to defeat the Dirksen proposal. DEATH CAR—This is the car in which Miss Bonnie Tilton, 18, of Montreal, was killed in an accident late Tuesday afternoon on the Black River Road, a few miles south of Black River Harbor. The accident occurred when the driver, Marvin Morrison, 19, of W. Hautanen Road, failed to negotiate an upgrade curve and the car struck a tree near the roadside. Miss Tilton, who was a passenger in the back seat, was thrown through the windshield and onto the ground. She was found 20 feet from the car, Gogebic County sheriff's officers reported, and was pronounced dead at the scene by County Coroner Robert Zielinski.

The bill, providing far more generous raises than recommended by President Johnson, would make possible an even larger increase in October 1966 by closing what the Labor Department describes as the gap between government and private industry salaries. Also included was a provision that would substanially increase the $30,000 salaries of members of Congress starting in the next Congress. The fist-year cost of the bill was estimated at $739 million. Johnson had asked for a flat 3 per cent increase for federal employes, costing $406 million. within 30 miles of Red China today on a bombing mission over North Viet Nam, a U.S. military spokesman said. It was the closest announced strike ever to the Chinese mainland since the United States began bombing Communist targets in North Viet Nam last Feb. 7. Four U.S. Air Force F105 Thunderchiefs hit a group of railroad cars about 105 miles northwest of Hanoi near the town of Ba Ho, the spokesman said. He reported all planes returned safely. Pilots said they dropped nine tons of bombs on the targets, damaging 11 box cars. Meanwhile, U.S. B52 bombers made their second raid in three days on the mountainous Do Xa area 250 miles northeast of Saigon, the spokesman announced.

Military authorities announced that the U.S. manpower buildup in Viet Nam had reached approximately 80,000 as of July 29. This included 39,000 Army, 25,300 Marines, 11,200 Air Fores. 4,400 Navy and 100 Coast Guard Vietnamese government casualties during the week ending July 31 totaled 815 compared with 857 Viet Cong losses for the same period, a military spokesman announced.

HAAKINSOX WASHINGTON (AP) — Th« Johnson administration disclosed plans today to increase the nation's fighting forces by 340,000 and asked for $1.7 billion in additional emergency defense funds. Both steps are primarily because of the Viet Nam situation. However, the increased manpower does not mean the prospective despatch of that many additional men to Viet Nam. President Johnson asked Congress ior the $1.7 billion "to increase our military strength in Viet Nam." Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara outlined the proposed manpiwer buildup in testimony to a closed Senate Ap- priopriations subcommittee hearing. McNamara told the senators that the Communist Viet Cong now hold the initiative in Viet Nam. He predicted that South Viet Nam, with the aid of additional U.S. fighting forces, will win in the long, hard pull ahead. Both the President and his defense secretary asked blanket authority for spending the new $1.7 billion emergency funds. McNamara made it clear that much larger detailed requirements will be waiting for the new session of Congress in j January. I The 340,000 increase in the armed forces proposed by McNamara would lift them to 2,980,000 men by the end of next June 30 Johnson listed the additional $1.7 billion as an "emergency fund, Southeast Asia." Under the request, the money would be made available to the secretary of defense "upon determination by the President that such action is necessary in connection with military activities in Southeast Asia." Except for the amount, the request was a duplicate of $700- million emergency fund asked by the President on May 7 and rushed through Congress in two days. Even before the forr-i.l request arrived there were uidica- tions some senators favor a still larger total. "I think the Congress wants to be certain they have enough money," Sen., Leverett Saltonstall of Massachusetts, the senior Republican member of the Senate Armed Services and Appropriations Committees, said in an interview. Viet Nam meanwhile occupied official Washington on several other fronts: — Roving Ambassador W. Averell Harriman, who returned last night from a tour of Moscow and some Western European capitals, had an appointment to discuss his impressions with President Johnson and Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Harriman said on arrival he is quite sure the Soviets want a peaceful solution but "it's in the LANSING (AP) — The State Public Service Commission today reported that another legal hurdle has been cleared in the effort to start natural gas flowing to the Upper Peninsula.
