Johnson has been the target, of a swllelng' flood ol criticism from Congressmen and other sources. This reached Its bitterest pluli last weekend when Rep.

And Marine Resolution only yesterday the Marine occasion. However, some White House udes said the President has been Increasingly concerned over persisting reports of dirferences between Johnson and secretary of State Acheson. One daily confidant of the President said that while Mr. Truman will defend to the limit an appointee from outside attack he is concerned because of published reports of Defense Department criticism of the secretary of state. "Of course this you may be sure,' one White House aide said, "the President feels that Secretary of State Acheson has borne up lo this case with supreme dignity and'will remain in the cabinet after Johnson has gone." How long oJhnson will stay on the job. this source said, is this only question. He added that he may step out sooner than most people realize. Mr. Truman told * news conference on Aug. 3 that both Johnson and Acheson, who also has oeen a target of congressional and other attacks, would stay as long as tic Is President. And only last week—a/ter John'-, son had said he had no intention of quitting unless Mr. Truman asked him to do so—the President, reaffirmed that he wanted to keep Johmon. Since that time, however, more than one White House official has reported, the President now feels that way only about Acheson.

The county's August draft call was for 75 men. Miss Saliba explained that the number to be in- dueled does,.not Indicate that .=. large number failed to pass their physical examinations. Not- all who passed are being Inducted at this time, she said. Actually, the procedure Is tantamount to having two quotas set up —one for the number of men to be examined, and another for the men actually Inducted. Selective Service has made It a practice to call for examination ^nany more men than actually will mm Inducted. This Is to compensate 'Tor those who fail to pass their physicals antt others who are found to have married or become otherwise exempt, since they registered for the draft.
