Indonesian Crisis Felt In England LONDON PI) Rhodesian Trime Minister lan Smith conferred with British Primp Minister Harold Wilson today in a showdown meeting on Smith's demand for independence for the white-ruled African colony. All indications were the talks would collapse before nightfall and plunge the British Commonwealth into a major crisis. African members of the Commonwealth have threatened to bolt it if Smith gets way. The United States intervened Thursday to let Smith know it backed British demands for a Rhodesian government ruled by the Negro majority. Smith was quoted today as saying he was at American faihire to understand his views The two prime ministers met at No in Downing Street Each as pledged to a no surrender attitude Diplomats said only concessions by Smith could prevent the first unilateral declaration of independence by a British colony since America did it in 1776. Smith wants continuing white rule for Rhodesia.

A force of 80 state troopers, double the usual complement of police, stymied the attempts by pulling some of the Negro youngsters off the road when they lav down and by grabbing when they charged the line of officers. It was the 11th consecutive day of racial demonstrations in Crawfordville. Today's demonstrations took place as the state troopers were changing shifts and the 40 policemen going off teamed up with 40 others replacing them to thwart the bus- boarding attempts. There were no arrests and no violence. An escort of eight patrol cars moved through town and accompanied the buses out of Crawfordville to nearby Greene and Warren counties. Tali (Crawfordville) County elosed its only white school in an effort to prevent integration. Most of the Negro pupils have boycotted their ow'n segregated high school. A federal tribunal is scheduled to begin a hearing Tuesday to decide whether the county should be ordered to reopen the white high school, or if Negro pupils also may be transported to predominantly white schools in adjacent counties. Meanwhile, the head of the powerful National Education Association (NEA) reported he may call on his organization if necessary to help fight alleged discrimination in this racially tense town.

The Cabarrus coroner's office said an autopsy showed that Mr, Goldstons death was caused by a heart attack. He apparently had become ill while on the house working on a television antenna.

At the exact hour Castro was offering to let Cubans opposing his regime depart if the U. S. would welcome them, State Department authorities were trying unsuccessfully in Congress to pave the way for de facto recognition of the Cuban government by quietly changing the immigration laws. Specifically, Abba Schwartz, administrator of the Bureau of Security and Consular Affairs, attempted to obtain authority to automatically permit the 270,000 Cuban refugees now in the U. S. to change their status from to American after two years residence. If this State Department amendment had been written into law, it would have put Congress on record as supporting the finalization of the Communist occupation of Cuba. according to legislators opposing it. Knowu privately as amendment, the little publicized measure was slipped through the Senate without debate after being rejected in the Judiciary immigration subcommittee. It was finally shelved for this Congress when a majority of the conferees, ironing out differences in the Senate- Housc versions of the President's immigration program, vigorously objected to its inclusion. Instead, these legislat voted to turn the amendment over for further study to a 15 member special commission that President Johnson and Congress will join 11 name to consider Latin American immigration problems.

A vote was scheduled to table motion to consider the repeal bill. The vote was expccted to be an indicator of Senate sentiments for the bill and chanccs for ending the filibuster. While the administration is believed to have enough support to pass the House-approved bill, it apparently lacks the required two-thirds majority to end the debate and bring the bill to a vote. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana engineered the test vote. On the basis of outcome he will decide whether to make a try for cloture. The bill would repeal section 14-B of the Taft-Hartley Act under which states may enact laws banning agreements. Nineteen states have such laws.

Physicians Hopeful Of Outcome WASHINGTON (UPI) Surgeons removed President gall bladder today in a operation. They also found and removed a The President was reported after the two hours and 15 minutes of surgery at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Mrs. Johnson and their daughter Luci were at the hospital. White House Press Secretary Bill D. Moyers said the family physician, Dr. James Cain, had reported that his words and as The surgery began at 6 a.m. EST and ended at 8:15 a.m. EST. Moyers gave the first report on the completion of the operation at 8:25 a.m. EST to reporters assembled in the hospital auditorium. Johnson remained in the operating room immediately after the surgery. He was to be moved to a third floor suite later to recuperate for the next 10 to 14 days. Mrs. Johnson had a room across the hall. Remove Gall Stone In his initial announcement, Moyers said the surgeons found a gall stone when they removed the gall bladder. He explained that they also had discovered and removed a kidney stone from the ureter, a tube canceling the bladder and kidney. There had been no advance word that the President was suffering from a kidney stone. He has a record of kidney stones, however, and the surgeons had stated they would explore other nearby organs. Doctors said earlier it was possible the President might be See JOHNSON On Page a Tear Gas Used To Rout Reds SAIGON of U.S. paratroopers and Australian infantrymen used tear gas today to flush Communist guerrillas from hiding in a major offensive against the Viet Cong stronghold northwest of Saigon. The ground forces were supported from the air by B52 jet bombers. Troops from the 173rd Airborne Brigade had permission from Gen. William C. Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Viet Nam. to use the gas against the elusive guerrillas. The Americans and Aussies advanced behind mortars, grenades and a solid wall of automatic weapons fire in the drive only 20 miles from Saigon, The approval for use of tear gas was made despite criticism from some quarters after its use in an operation a few months ago. Most officers feel tear gas is more humane than grenades in probing the hundreds of bunkers and foxholes in which guerrillas hide. Guerrilla Stronghold A U.S. military spokesman said only will whether the battle develops into one of the major engagements of the war. U.S. forces have tried for months to get the Viet Cong to stand and fight in the area. The held by the Communists is a three-sided stronghold pointed at Saigon. It is believed the most heavily- fortified rebel area in South Viet Nam and reportedly serves as headquarters for Viet Cong leaders. U.S. and Vietnamese planes meanwhile flew 401 combat sorties against targets in Communist North Viet Nam during the last 24 hours, the U.S. spokesman disclosed. The targets in North Viet Nam were in the vicinity of historic Dicn Bien Phu in the northwest and Vinh on the coast, the U.S. spokesman said. BUI Schultz Furniture Mart Open Tonight Until 9
