Viet Peace Talks Make No Headway By STEWART HENSLEY WASHINGTON (DPI) — Administration officials today reported no movement whatsoever toward a formula for peace negotiations in the South Viet Nam war despite a flurry of diplomatic activity on several fronts. President Johnson, they said, found that a "special message" from President Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana boiled down essentially to a renewed appeal for the United States to stop its bombing attacks on North Viet Nam without any concessions from the Communists. Discussions at the United Nations Friday by the six nonpermanent members of the Security Council, joined at o n e point by U. S. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg, were reported to have made no headway in the quest for a means of bringing an end to the fighting. And a complete assessment of roving U. S. Ambassador Harriman's recent talks in Moscow with Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin made it clear the Kremlin' does not intend to try to persuade Hanoi to stop fighting and start to North Viet Nam for greater assistance hi the war. The appeal, reported by Radio Hanoi, called for troops that had been sent to the North from South Viet Nam when the country was divided in 1954 to get ready to return. The United States position on this, officials said, is that regular North Vietnamese units have been infiltrating to the South for some time. Administration spokesmen have said that a regular North Vietnamese division is now hi South Viet Nam. Greensburg find.) Dafly News.jatunjajr.JW 7.1965 PAGE EVER HAPPEN TO TOU talking.

Officials viewed t h e threat, issued by the Soviet news agency Tass hi the form of an authorized statement, as merely a continuation of the line the Russians need to follow in their struggle with Communist China for control of the international Communist movement. Officials also said they saw no reason for concern in an appeal by the political arm of the Communist Viet Cong The Almanac By United Press International F fr. n fronton 1 JES Aug. 7-8, 1950 A son was born to Mr. and Patterson, 1:56.2.

I9&jgojj ridiu res News in Brief WASHINGTON (UPI) - The White House has dismissed Republican Leader Gerald R- Ford's latest gambit in the partisan debate over U. S. policy in Viet Nam with a short but sharp one sentence statement. "There is nothing"! can contribute to any Republican desire to go to war," replied Press Secretary Bill D. Moyers Friday in answer to a question about Ford's suggestion that President Johnson declare war on North Viet Nam. Mpyers also referred newsmen to a statement by House Democratic Leader Carl Albert who assailed Ford for what he termed "foolhardy" and "useless" suggestion. OAKLAND, Calif. (UPI) — A human cowcatcher of policemen and sheriff's deputies silently strode in front and alongside a troop train Friday as it moved through a chanting crowd of 300 persons protesting United States action in Viet Nam.

It was the second day in a row that attempts to halt the train, loaded with troops bound for "somewhere in the Pacific,' failed. MOSCOW (UPI) — Western observers in Moscow concluded today that the Soviet Union's first official reaction to the U. S military buildup in Viet Nam did not appear to go beyonc previous Kremlin statements on the crisis in Southeast Asia. In an officially authorizec statement Friday, the news agen cy Tass said Russia will con tinue to supply military aid to Communist North Viet Nam. "American invaders alread v feel the results of this assist ance," the Communist news agency added. This was interpreted here as a possible reference to the down ing of an American plane over North Viet Nam, reportedly 05 a Soviet missile. EDGARTON, Mass.

HUBER'S Southeast Comer Square First Voting Rights (DPI). — The Johnson administration strikes into the fieart of the Deep South todSy in its first action under hisf&rie legislation to guarantee Negroes-the voting rights to which they have been entitled for a century. Justice Department lawyers were scheduled to file a suit in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Miss., challenging the constitutionality of the state's poll tax. Tie suit was one of several planned uttder a provision of the new law, which is aimed at ending all discriminatory voting requirements. Johnson said the statute wbuld "strike <sway the last major shackle'*; of the American Negro's cha'ins of oppression. ,' The Chief Executive signed the bill into law in a 1 ceremony at the Capitol attended by civil rights leaders and members of Congress. Signs BUI Hfe sat at a polished hardwood desk some historians believe hid been used by Abra^ ham Lincoln exactly 104 years before to sigh a bill freeing Negroes who were forced to work for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Before the Signing, Johnson stood beneath a statue of Lincoln in the vaulted Capitol r Rotunda and told the nation that today's suit in Mississippi was the start of a legal process which "will very soon prohibit any state from requiring the payment of money in order to vote." Johnson said similar suits, calling for three-judge federal ?anels to decide the constitutionality of poll taxes, would be filed Tuesday in Texas, Alabama and Virginia, the other states which still have poll taxes in state and local elections. The President also ordered Justice Department attorneys to work through the weekend to designate by Monday morning counties where the 'bill's, key provisions for federal registration of Negroes will be put into effect. Action By Tuesday By Tuesday federal examiners were to be at work'.registering eligible voters in 10 to 15 coun- ties. It was understood these -would be areas of "hard core" discrimination in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. . The law also covers Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia and parts of North CaroliBa. In all the areas affedted, literacy, and other qualification tests will be suspended. Although the provisions of the' bill will not go into effect until it is published in the Federal; Register next week, its, enactment was felt immediately on: the civil rights front. WASHINGTON (DPI) - The' voting fights bill President Johnson .signed into l^w Friday is the strongest Congress has. approved since the post-Civil War period, to guarantee Negroes the right to the ballot. For the first time, Congress has bypassed the courts for direct and automatic federal action in areas where the government has found a traditibh of voter discrniiinati&n. Provisions of Law Briefly, the new law: —Strikes down, without prior court approval, literacy and other voter qualification tests used throughout Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Virginia and in 34 counties of North Carolina. —Authorizes the government to appoint "examiners" to register eligible Negroes, as well as poll watchers and judges to make sure they actually are permitted to vote and have their votes counted. —Empowers federal judges in other areas to suspend literacy and other tests and to order appointment of examiners if the government can prove Negroes are being denied the right to vote. —Imposes imprisonment up to five years of $10,000 fines or both for any effort to intimi- AEC CONDUCTS TEST WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Atomic Energy Commission Friday exploded another low-yield underground nuclear device at its Nevada test site. It was the 16th U. S. weapons-development nuclear test of 1965. A low-yield explosion is equivalent to less than 20,000 tons of TNT. date prospective Negro voters or civil rights workers trying tb help them. —^Declares poll taxes to .be unconstitutional and directs the Justice Department to seek prompt court action outlawing then- payment as a condition for voting in state orjpcal elections in Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and Virginia, the only states where they still exist. Congress' automatic formula for federal action applies to .any area with literacy or other tests where less than half the .yptihg- age population was registered or actually' voted last November. : V - • The law is based on the 15th Amendment to the Constitution, Which says: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state oh 'account of race, color of previous condition of servitude. "The congress shall have the poiwer to enforce this article by appropriate legislation." 10 EXTRA YEARS? A baby bom today can look forward to a life expectancy of almost 70 years.
