Antagonism between the two countries developed after the attempted coup Oct. 1, which the Indonesian army's leaders say was planned and directed by the pro-Peking Indonesian Communist party, the PKI. For weeks Sukarno stubbornly resisted demands from the army and anti-Communist or ganizations to reshape his for eign policy. Now it seems that Sukarno has conceded. This was indicated Thursday by first Deputy Premier Suban- drio, the foreign minister, who usually speaks for Sukarno, in RAF Planes Now Landing In Zambia LUSAKA, Zambia (AP) British Royal Air Force planes began landtag today in Zambia as negotiations continued on the stationing of British ground troops in rebellious Rhodesia's northern neighbor. A Britannia transport carry- Ing equipment arrived this morning in Lusaka, the Zambian capital, and several Argosy freight carriers followed. Lusaka is 85 miles from the Rhodesian border. A squadron of Royal Air Force Javelin jet fighters, waiting in Kenya since Wednesday, was scheduled to land later in the day at Ndola, one of the main towns in Zambia's rich copper belt. Ndola is 300 miles north of Rhodesia. Under an arrangement accepted Thursday by President Kenneth Kaunda, Britain will send additional four-engine transports to Ndola to beef up Zambia's air defenses. Informed sources said the RAF planes and Zambia's airports would be under British control. They declined to say how many men of the RAF regiment would accompany the planes. In London, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson told the House of Commons: "The presence of the Royal Air Force will be a very important factor in helping cool down the situation." Their official mission Is to provide air defense for Zambia — so that other African nations won't send planes in. Cubans Would Fight U.5. In V. Nam-Castro HAVANA (AP) - Prime Minister Fidel Castro said today many Cubans would be willing to fight against the United States in Viet Nam. "There are many in this country who would gladly enlist to fight there against the criminal soldiers of Yankee Imperialism," Castro said. "The day volunteers are asked, there will be thousands — millions from all parts of the world." Castro's statement in a speech to a teachers' graduating class seemed no more an indication that he intends to send men to Viet Nam than similar previous declarations. Castro also said that Ernesto (Che) Guevara "is alive and well" but shed no new light on the disappearance of the former minister of industries who was one of the chief architects of Castro's revolution.

LBJ Feels Restraint Can Head Off Inflation By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) -In citing Viet Nam war needs as a reason for businessmen to hold the price line against inflation, President Johnson linked the two tilings that the executives have closely tied in their own minds of late. For many business leaders have feared the Viet Nam mill- weeks has built up fear of a new inflationary surge. The rising cost of living and higher wholesale and materials prices have fed such fears. So, too, in its own way has the debate on the merits or perils of rising interest rates. President Johnson's plea to hold the wage-price line was addressed to the business council, a group of top executives of tary buildup was the spark that (American industry, meeting in could set an orderly but highly -•>.... °. expanded economy into a boom.

But American planes kept up their attacks on North and South Viet Nam with undiminished fury. Communist snipers shot down a U.S. Marine helicopter carrying a crew of four Americans and nine Vietnamese troops south of the big U.S. air base at Da Nang, 380 miles north of Saigon. All aboard were presumed dead. The 'copter was in a flight of eight seeking out the Viet Cong. U.S. spokesmen also reported that a propeller-driven Skyraid- er from the carrier Bon Homme Richard was hit Thursday over North Viet Nam and crashed into a peak 40 miles northwest of Dong Hoi, a railhead near the 17th Parallel frontier. The pilot was listed as missing. The nuclear-powered carrier Enterprise sent up 118 planes on her second day of combat. The Big E's planes dropped 102 tons >f bombs on suspected Viet Cong troop concentrations and supply dumps in South Viet Nam. Spokesmen said 60 structures were destroyed and 65 damaged. \ i Of the pause in the ground action, a U.S. spokesman said: "We've had these lulls before. We're beating the bushes for the Viet Cong. When they want to start it up again, they can." The only ground action reported was a minor clash involving patrolling U.S. Marines near Da Nang. Spokesmen said there were no Marine casualties. Guam-based B52s roared over Washington. He said the line could be held and all of the Viet Nam war needs met, if government and business and labor cooperate. The spending on the war, now estimated to add perhaps $5 billion more to government outlays could be taken in today's giant-sized next year, stride by economy. Businessmen admit that. What they've worried about it is that even without this stimulant, the economy shows every sign of growing to the point of full employment and full use of production capacity. Government spending in other fields than the Viet Nam war also is rising, and seems likely to go higher. This would be a stimulant in itself to the economy. It's the possibility of an economy working at capacity — with labor shortages developing here and there and with no idle factory facilities to draw on — that arouses the fears of overheating. That is, at some point added upward pressure could set The President does urge businessmen to resist the temptation to raise prices. They have been pleading that their raw materials and production costs have been going up faster than mechanization can provide a counterbalance. Also some are tempted because competition in their industry has slackened as buying demand grows and idle facilities are put to work. The government also urges labor unions to hold down wage demands, so as not to push up production costs enough to make prices rises inevitable. And the President wants the banks not to raise interest rates for their eager borrowers, and thus cool some of their ardor. These guidelines, he says, would prevent inflation. And he thinks the Viet Nam war expansion needn't be either the excuse or the cause of overheating the already bubbling economy.
