LBJ Still Hacking At RFK's Viet Remarks Kythevffle (Arfc.)' Courier News - Saturday, March 4, 1967 - Pugt riv» WASHINGTON (AP) - The Johnson administration, drawing support from some Republican leaders, is continuing its assault on Vietnam peace moves proposed by Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. "Hanoi has made it quite Clear that it is not interested in a temporary pause," Secretary of State Dean Rusk said Friday of Kennedy's proposal that the United States suspend its bombing of North Vietnam and initiate peace negotiations. The New York Democrat told the Senate Thursday the bombing could be reconsidered and possibly resumed if time and events proved the Cramunists do not want peace. But Rusk, after appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Friday, said Hanoi seems to have "closed the dbor" on the Kennedy's kind of peace approach. Johnson made it clear as Kennedy was speaking that the bombings would continue. He previously had said "military and civilian leaders are doing what they believe is best to protect the safety, lives of our men there, and to try to bring about a halt to the war and the aggression." Senate Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen said "I'm entirely with" Johnson. Dirksen said Kennedy "has treated father lightly efforts by the President over a considerable period of time t6 bring them to the peace table, stop adding reinforcements, stop infiltrating." "But my God," Dirksen added, "there's been no response What reason is there to think there'll be a response now." Rusk said there Is no assurance the Cormmists want peace, despite their demands for a permanent and uncondi- tional end to the bombing. "I would prefer that the enemy show some evidence of good 'aith before unilateral cessation of bombing," said Sen, Charles H Percy, R-I11. But he also said administration statements on the terms for end to the bombing are "simply too vague to be practical" and urged Johnson to be more specific about peace talks. Have him (Johnson) name a time and a place," Percy said, and tell the Communists that "providing you show up to negotiate, we will stop the bombing.. .and so long as you continue to negotiate in good faith, we will not bomb." Percy said it would be unfortunate if Democratic politics affected the search for peace, a reference to the long-standing intra-party coolness between Johnson and Kennedy.

He was convicted three years ago today at Chattanooga, Tenn., on a jury-tampering charge. At Chattanooga Friday, U.S. Dist. Judge Frank W. Wilson refused to delay imposition of Hoffa's sentence until April 1. He acted one day after Hoffa's attorneys filed an appeal saying he was needed at negotiations on new nationwide Teamsters contract. The old contract ex- Wilson, in a memorandum opinion, said there was no reason to believe Hoffa's continued freedom would "materially alter the situation," and that the needs for his services did not constitute "proper grounds" for delaying his sentence in the first place. While Hoffa might have many union responsibilities, Wilson added, "the greatest of these is his responsibility unto the law and unto the orderly processes of justice."
