Johnson commented informally on his health, sleeping habits, golf game, cconomy-in-gov- ernmcnt and sundry other topics during a walk around White iiouse grounds Saturday with about 50 newsmen and photog raphers. The President, wearing a cocoa colored silk suit, pale yel low shirt and bow tie, interrupted his walk to shake hands with tourists at the White House gate and play with his two beagles. But he was careful not to pull the dogs' cars. The peripatetic news conference began after Johnson completed a conference with cabi net officere and agency heads on economy - in - government. Stepping from his office into bright spring sunshine, he invited reporters to take a stroll with him. During the 45-niinute walk Johnson said laughingly that his feelings had been hurt by newspaper stories that there was no one in Washington he could beat at golf. He said the reason the reports disturbed liim was because they were true. Hoffa defense blasts Kennedy statement CHICAGO (UPD-Attorneys for Teamsters Union leader James Hoffa today demanded mistrial or continuance in Hoffa's S20 milUon fraud trial because of remarks made my Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy. Defense attorney Maurice J. Walsh told Federal Judge Richard B. Austin that Kennedy's remarks here Friday were prej udicial. Austin overruled the motions for a mistrial or continuance, and again turned to the painstaking task of selecting a jury for the trial of Hoffa and seven associates. Kennedy commented on the Hoffa case during a question and answer session with law students of the University of Chicago. Kennedy was quoted in Chicago newspaper as saying that when he was attorney Said his reading mostly is 1 for the Senate rackets commit- On other subjects, Johnson: —Said he had recently lost four or five pounds by not eating as much of his favorite'a foods. —Praised Defense Secretary Robert S. McXamara who, he said, had produced savings in the Defense Departm.ent at an annual rate of S2.6 billion. —Voiced enthusiasm about the savings made in various other government departments. He said he also was pleased at the general reaction to his speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce last week. —Said he awakes almost each day about 6:45 a.m., but stays in bed for another two hours reading or resting. Seldom goes to sleep at night before 1:30 or 2 a.m., although he does get into bed about 11 p.m. He watches a late night news program on television, then reads for two hours or more. connected with work, but he turns occasionally to non-fiction, particularly biographies. He seldom reads fiction because of a childhood incident. .•\s a boy, he had asked his mother if some fictional stories he had been reading were true. Told that fiction was not fact. Johnson said he immediately developed a distaste for any thing untrue. Eichmann's aides deny helping kill Jews FRANKFURT, Germany (UPI)—AdoU Eichmann's two aides today pleaded innocent to helping kill 437,000 Hungarian Jews but admitted taking suitcase full of extortion money from the victims. "But I don't feel guilty at all," said e.x-Gestapo Lt. Col. Hermann Krumey. "Me? I had nothing to do with Krumey except one time when we picked up the suitcase of money together," testified the second defendant, ex-Gestapo Capt. Otto Hunsch. Both defendants appeared hurt when Chief Judge Arnold Schmidt pressed them about charges they first extorted Police hunt stolen tiger ATL.4NTA (UPI) — AUanfa police said Sunday night they still did "not have the tiger by the taiL" The tiger in question was a nine-week-old one stolen late iturday from the Atlanta Zi Valued at S1,000, the tiger as bemg kept in a nursery in the cat building out of the pub- must have known where to find it. Five years ago, someone stole an alligator from the zoo . it later turned up in a money from the Jews of Hungary and then helped Eichmann ship them to the gas chambers of the Auschwitz death camp. Eichmann was in charge of Adolf Hitler's wartime program to exterminate Jews. He was convicted and hanged in Israel for mass murder. "I never took part in any deportation of Jews (to Auschwitz). And I never gave any or ders for that," Krumey said. Judge Schmidt: "W h a t about extorting money?" Krumey: "Well... I only got into the act when the money was picked up " Judge: "You knew the Jews were being deported?" Krumey: "Well, yes. But didn't know tliey were being liquidated. When I finally learned they were being killed, I tried to help where I could Judge: "How about you Husche?" The former Gestapo lawyer, accused of tricking Jewish leaders into paying money for salvation they never got, said Eichmann never told him the truth. Judge: "Did you know Jews were being killed?" Hunsche: "Yes, but I didn't know Auschwitz served the purpose of liquidating them. I only found out after the war ... I wondered and asked Eichmann. He told mc Ausch witz is Germany's main armament center." tee he became familiar with corruption in the Teamsters Union and decided to do something about it. "This matter was not dug up by newspapers." Walsh said. "The remarks were made by a government official who came to this territory to make his prejudicial remarks." Walsh said, "This is a novel situation, where a government official who is practically the prosecutor in this case would come to the area to make remarks that are prejudicial." Connally, Yarborough lead in Texas D.^LLAS (UPI)—Gov. John Connally and Sen. Ralph Yarborough, D-Tex., increased their winning margins today in the Democratic primary as the total vote passed the 1.55 million mark. Latest returns from the Tex as Election Bureau, issued at 9 a.m. from all 254 counties, 195 complete, showed Connally with 1.061,748 votes and Yarborough with 856.781. Don Yarborough got 450.275 to run second to Connally with less than 30 per cent of the total while Gordon McLendon gathered 637,901 in the hard- fought Senate race. Republicans turned out 135, 339 strong to put George Bush and Jack Cox in a runoff for the GOP Senate nomination among four contenders. Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., wound up with a three-to-one margin in the presidential preferential poll—not quite as big a victory as backers hoped for. The size of the Democratic primarj- compared with the Re publican showing must have made President Johnson feel good about his November general election chances in his home state. The presidenUal hopes of Goldwater, who did not bother to campaign in Texas, were endorsed as expected by a whopping percentage of GOP voters. He got 19 votes in Johnson's home precinct at Stonewall, Tex. Letter carriers join searcli for Fronczak baby CHICAGO (UPl)-Police and federal agents were joined in their search for the kidnaped Fronczak baby today by the na tion's letter carriers. The infant, Paul Joseph, was bom eight days ago at Chicago's Michael Reese Hospital and kidnaped the following day by a woman posing as a nurse. Sirs. Dora Fronczak, the dark-haired, 28-year-old wife of an aircraft mechanic, still was confined to her hospital room, .-i frustrating one-week search left police with few clues. Authorities expressed hope that the baby and his kidnaper eventually would be found. Helping them were the nation's 175.000 letter carriers, a vast network of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and a new- sketch of the kidnaper. Russ remove best missiles from Cuba WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Soviet Um'on is reported to have removed its best SA2 antiaircraft missiles from Cuba and replaced them with earlier, less effective models. Just how useful the older versions might be against high flying American U2 reconnaissance planes is not explained, but they clearly would not 'be capable of the performance of the more advanced SA2 mis silcs. Sources reported the switch at a time when the Russians are believed to be turning over to Premier Fidel Castro control of the air defense system in Cuba manned by Soviet troops since 1962. The sources could not be identified. Their report also coincided with receipt of information in Washington that more Russian forces have been preparing to leave Cuba. The United States has declared that its reconnaissance flights over Cuba will be con tinued regardless of whether Castro gets control of the missile sites- Castro has said he would not tolerate continued overflights and Washington has warned him against interfering. If the Cubans gain control of the air defense system on the island and fire missiles at U.S. reconnaissance planes, Wash­ ington is prepared for swift retaliation. It was understood that retaliation would not necessarily be limited to knocking out the single site or sites from which the missiles might have been launched. Precise plans obviously are secret. The antiaircraft weapons were taken into Cuba in 1962 when the Russians precipitated a crisis by placing on the island, ballistic missiles capable of reaching targets about 1,000 miles away. President John F. Kennedy forced Soviet Premier Nikila S. Khrushchev to withdraw the ballistic missiles and some obsolescent IL28 bombers. Five U.S. sailors killed in U.S. base at Cuba WASHINGTON (UPI)- Five U. S. Navy men were killed Saturday night at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, when they entered a mine field and set off explo-, sions within the confines of the U.' S. Naval Base, the Navy announced today. The announcement said that Guantanamo Bay authorities could "only speculate as to the cause of the tragedy" because there were no witnesses. The mine field, the Navy said, is impossible to enter without climbing a barbed-wre fence and is surrounded by warning signs. The Navy men were from the crew of the Boxer, a former aircraft carrier now used as an amphibious assault ship. All the dead were enlisted men. None was a resident of the Far West. Quote of Day WASHINGTON — William P. Bundy on the possibility of sending two military police units to South Viet Nam: '.. .It would be primarily for the protection of our own people." Soviets accuse Peking of racist wall MOSCOW (UPI)—The Soviet Union today accused the Peking regime of building a "Chinese wall between white, yellow and black nations." The Soviets declared that such "racist" policies would meet the same fate as that of Hitler's Germany. "The very appeal to theories and ideas of racial coloration is not new," an official government statement declared, adding: "It is not necessary to mention the names of those who tried to base their policy on such man-hating principles and how they ended." This was as an obvious reference to Nazi Germany's racist policies. In the strongest charge oi "yellow supremacy" yet hurled by the Russians at Peking in the deepening Sino-Soviet dis pute, the statement said: "To speculate on slogans of racial solidarity is the same as building a certain Chinese Wall between white, yellow and black nations, betwen socialist countries and coimtries of Asia and Africa." Court refuses to look into Negro charges W.\SHINGTOK (UPI)- The Supreme Court refused today to look into Negro charges of racial discrimination in Gary, Ind., school zoning, which the city says is based solely on residential patterns. The brief order leaves standing two lower court decisions against the complaining parents, who were represented by the legal defense fund of the .National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The implications of the case go deeper than other school segregation cases to come before the high court thus far, because race is not mentioned in any law or regulation. The petition to the court said about 97 per cent of Gary's 23.000 Ne gro students are attending schools that are predominantly Negro. Also Negro and white teachers are placed in schools where the majority of the children are of their own race, according to the complaint. In other actions today, the court order that public school teachers and administrators must be assigned without racial consideration. The order also barred discrimination in construction of schools, the budgeting of funds and school mamte- I nance. —.-Agreed to decide whether an individual must acknowledge belief in a supreme being qualify as a conscientious ob jector in the military draft Three separate cases were ap pealed to the court with two federal appeals courts differing on the issue. —R u 1 e d unanimously that John Coleman, a Negro sen fenced to death in Alabama, is entitled to a hearing on his claim that Negroes were syste matically excluded from both the grand jury which indicted hira and the trial jury which found him guilty of murdering a white man. —Reversed the conviction of a Norfolk, Va., woman on prostitution charges on grounds police had obtained evidence by planting a microphone in her bathroom.

Indonesian forces ready to crush Malaysia JAKARTA, Indonesia (UPI)—, Indonesia's armed forces and volunteers are ready to crush Malaysia and help the people of the British-sponsored federation "gam their independence,". President Sukarno said Sunday. "Malaysia should be crushed entirely and returned to the people," Sukarno told a crowd of 400.000 persons assembled in park facing the American Embassy. The address had been advertised as a "special command" by Sukarno to Indonesian volunteers who have vowed to back his "crush Malaysia" policy, but he did not order ithem into action. Police and combat troops in full battle gear were posted around the U.S. Embassy building but Sukarno told the crowd to go home after his speech and not make any trouble. There were no incidents. Sukarno repeated his "go to hell" statement against American foreign aid.
