Both houses must consider a bill to set up a Department of Corrections while some type of compromise must be reached on a bill establishing procedure for holding a constitutional convention. There is also a possibility of further action on Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller's request that Lynn A. Davis be made immediately eligible for reappolntmant as State Police director. One bill, under which Davis could without question serve again in mid-July, passed both .houses last week. Two new bills were introduced in the House Friday while the Senate has .before it an unamended administration bill. All three, if passed, would make Davis eligible immediately. , .... jjj l (from page one) if. As for Eisenhower, it is to be assumed Johnson was not unmindful of the political implications of his friendly meeting with the only living ex-Republican president in this election year. "I really honestly believe he has been as helpful to me as any one person since I've been President," Johnson declared. At the outset of his visit to the Eisenhower home at the El Dorado Country Club In Palm Desert, Johnson was accompanied by Lt. Gen. Lewis W. Walt, deputy commandant of the Ma- rlnes and a Vietnam veteran, and Walt W. Rostow, the President's special assistant for national security affairs. These men, Johnson reported, briefed Elsenhower on crises in Vietnam and Korea for about an hour, Johnson, who has had many kind words recently for the U.S. commander In Vietnam, Gen, William C, Westmoreland, Invoked Eisenhower's name in de« fense of the general. He said Elsenhower told him he would never substitute his own judgement as a military commander for the man on the ground— Westmoreland being the man on the ground. Reporting that Eisenhower spoke highly of Westmoreland, Johnson said the former chief executive told him the Vietnam commander bears the greatest responsibility of any general he ever heard about In history, Johnson said he asked If this meant greater responsibility than Eisenhower shouldered as allied commander In Western Europe In World War H, He said Eisenhower replied he meant just that because "j ai« ways knew where the enemy was," In his own public speeches along his route, Johnson struck a theme of perseverense ta Viet. As he told crewmen the Constellation; "Men may cJebate-B- men may dissent men may disagree^ an4 £04 forbid that a tjme should come when men of this land may not, *'P ut. there comes 3 time when men must stand— and for Amert lea, that time has now come," Declaring that "the enemy be, lievessrhe thinks*-that our wij| is vulnerable/* Johnson sat<j "quite certainly we toow thai the enemy is going to fail; we Ijgye taken ' " U,S,PLANES (from page one) mand expresses its regrets and offers assurance that all possible measures will be taken to Insure that such Incidents will not recur in the future." There was no Indication that the North Koreans fired on the planes. North Korea called the commission meeting. The senior Communist delegate, Maj. Gen. , Pak Chung Kook, charged that "a. formation of American military airplanes" Intruded Into North Korean air space north of Panmunjom for four minutes and engaged In "hostile acts and reconnaissance." Pak claimed that U.N. forces had committed 36 other armistice violations between Feb. 13 and Feb. 18, but Smith denied all these.

Since then he's been told his father died a year ago, leaving him about $4,000, Wescott, 51, has had marriage proposals, and appeals from Inventors, college students, ministers and many claiming to be particularly needy.
