Clark to Head Rehabilitation Of Watts Area WASHINGTON (UPD-nPresi- dent Johnson is sending the No. 2 man in the Justice Department—a man who ranks tops in presidential esteem—to Los Angeles to assist in rehabilitating the riot-ten Watts section. Johnson announced Wednesday a his news conference that Deputy Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark would head the task force that will seek to soothe racial unrest and erase the causes of last week's riots. The President was asked if he "had in mind "any action which might avert further tension" in Los Angeles. He replied by announcing Clark's mission, saying that Clark and others would "proceed to Los Angedes at a very early date." He added that "details of their work and their program will be announced as soon as they are available," More about the task force, including its composition, was expected to be announced shortly, possibly today. By naming Clark to head the task force, the President indicated the seriousness which he attaches to the Los Angeles situation. The 37-year-old deputy attorney general is a long-time family friend of the President. It was his friendship with Johnson, then vice president, which helped Clark win his 1961 appointment as assistant attorney general. But friends say his promotion this year to deputy attorney general was based strictly on his government record.
