"Westmoreland said it was 'absolutely inaccurate" that recent severe fighting in Vietnam's central highlands indicated that the Communists were taking the initiative in the war. "We beat them to the punch ivery time," he said. Westmoreland denied the administration has put pressure on him to turn out more significant military victories before the next presidential election. "I put pressure on myself constantly to do the best job possible" in keeping pressure on enemy forces in Vietnam, he iaid. Johnson is holding the high- level conferences at a time when he says the Vietnam war could cut even deeper into his public support. "I may wind up with a poll of one per cent before it's over with," he is reported to have said recently. But underlining his determination to pursue his stated goal of peace with honor in Vietnam regardless of public opinion, he used this quote from Lincoln during his toast Tuesday night at a White House reception for Prime Minister Eiaaku Sato of Japan: "Let. us have faith that right makes might,.and let us...dare to do our duty as we understand it." Johnson said "it Is taking time and patience to win peace in the world. But it will be won if we have the faith to uphold Lincoln's first principle." • S.S. Bill (Continued From Page 1) creases would average nearly 19 per cent. — Increact total btntfits paid by $3.5 billion next year and $5.8 billion in 1969. Under present law, $25.5 billion in Social Security benefits would be paid out in 1968. — Boost maximum taxes for individuals, and for employers who must match employe contributions, from the present $290.40 a year to $352 in 1968 and $422.40 in 1969. A House-passed Social Security bill calls for a 12% per cent minimum over-all boost in benefits and a $6 hike to $50 in the minimum monthly benefit. Mansfield expressed confidence the bill would clear the Senate and go to conference with the House before the Thanksgiving recess scheduled to begin a week from today. Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen told newsmen meanwhile he expects Senate action to be completed on the bill by week's end. The Finance Committee greatly liberalized the version passed by the House in August, putting it much more in line with administration recommendations. A floor fight on the bill has been pledged by a group of Republicans including Dirksen and Sen. John J. Williams of Delaware, senior GOP member on the Finance Committee. They said in committee minority reports they would seek to substitute the lower House- approved benefit and tax levels for the Senate panel's version. The Republicans complained the tax increases next year will not be sufficient to cover proposed additional 1968 benefit increases. U.S.-Vietnam (Continued From Page 1) • Sato (Continued From Page 1) tion would threaten their security. The Japanese leader told Johnson this judgment was based on an 11-nation tour he made in the past several months to Southeast Asia and the Southern Pacific, diplomatic sources disclosed. The 66-year-old prime minister winds up a two-day round of negotiations and consultations today with a second meeting with Johnson at the White House. A joint communique was to be issued. In their first session Johnson and Sato conferred for two hours with only interpreters present. Diplomatic sources said obviously the future of Okinawa and the Bonin Islands was discussed. Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Japan's Foreign Minister Takeo Miki held business talks in an adjoining room while Johnson and Sato conferred in the President's oval study. Rusk and Miki reportedly were concerned mainly with a nuclear nonproliferation treaty, peaceful uses of atomic energy, the outer space treaty with the Soviet Union and Southeast Asia security problems.
