LBJ to to his " By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson's decision to deliver his State-of-the-Union message at a prime night television- radio hour on Jan. 4 indicates he plans a rousing sendoff for his "Great Society" program. The White House announced Tuesday that the President will address the 89th Congress at 8 p.m. GST on the day it convenes. That would follow a precedent set by Franklin D. Roosevelt in speaking at the same hour on Jan. 3, 1936. The difference will g/Ve a rousing sendoff Great Society' concept he that Johnson will be talking to a new Congress where FDR was addressing the second session of a Congress that had been at work a year. White House press secretary George Reedy said the unusual step was being taken because "the President considers this not onJy a report to Congress but a report to the American people." Republicans were quick to note that the President had selected a prime television viewing hour. They suggested that Johnson was planning to try to rush through a legislative program. S*n. Bourke B. Hickenloopcr of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, said he didn't know of any emergency that would require the President to come to Congress on his first day and force the holding of a night session. Sen. John G. Tower, R-Tex., said he thinks "it's just politicking" for the President to speak at night. "I suppose he wants to exploit prime radio and TV time and make a big show of it," Tower said. However, Sen. Milton R. Young, R-N.D., said he didn't think it was a bad idea. "It's a bit unusual but I think it will be all right," Young said Sen. Jack Miller, R-lowa quipped that "coming at such a late hour, I trust his message will be illuminating." Sen. Margaret Chase Smith R-Maine, said "the novelty o the hour is intriguing." In response to other questions Reedy said he didn't think i would be wise to anticipate tha Johnson might include in th State-of-the-Union message anj figures on budget expenditure for the next fiscal year, as hi did last year. i;8 Christmastime , . . anytime!

HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army is advising reservists to sit tight and wait for the switch to the National Guard. "Army reservists have nothing to do in preparation for the move., except to continue to serve in their jobs and capacity, until" the conversion is completed," it said. Defense officials said Tuesday the National Guard will be expanded to a 550,000-man force wholly on a volunteer basis and that a Reserve unit could make the change to the Guard if 60 Glob«-G»i«He, Mason City, la.

In response to a series of questions, the Army among oth or things confirms reports that the conversion is due to be completed by March 31, 1966. It will begin next July 1. These were some other questions the Army answered: Q. What happens to men who have amassed retirement points? A. Individuals who are transferred to the active standby Reserve may continue to amass points for retirement although at a somewhat slower rate. If the individual is transferred to the inactive standby Reserve, he will not accrue further retirement points although he does not lose those which have been previously amassed. Q. Wh*t happens to the college ROTC prosmms? Will all graduates go Into th* Guard? A. Nothing happens to the college ROTC program as a result of the restructuring action. Graduates will go into the Guard only on a voluntary basis. Those who do not want to go into the Guard will remain members of the Army Reserve — in a manpower pool not subject to regular drills but liable for possible summer training. Q. What choices now are open to draft-ag* youths who have been able to enlist In the six- month Reserve program, go on active duty for that period and serve out th« rest of their six- year Reserve obligation with either Guard or Reserve units? A. Under the proposed change, an individual has the opportunity to enlist for Reserve unit service only in the National Guard.
