McNamara's Viet Trip to Gauge New War Needs Air Force Secretary, U.S. I.A. Director Quit Mass Walkout Threatened by British Medics SWANSEA, Wales — (JP)British doctors Saturday threatened a mass walkout from the national free health scheme unless they are permitted to charge consultation fees—and thus discourage hypochondriacs and malingerers. A resolution to this effect was passed by voice vote at the annual conference of the British Medical Assn. after one of the 500 delegates, Dr. Alan L. Bussey, told the meeting: "Let there be no mistake By Fred S. Hoffman (AP Military Affairs Writer) WASHINGTON — (/P) — Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara will take a close look this week at U.S. strategy and tactics in Viet Nam, seeking to gauge what reinforcements will be needed to blunt the Communist offensive. This, in sum, is the purpose of McNamara's first on-the- spot sizeup of the South Viet Kiltie Buses Collide, 2 Hurt NEWVILLE, Wis. — — Two Racine residents suffered minor injuries Saturday morning when two buses carrying the Racine YMCA Kilties Drum & Bugle Corps were involved in a rear-end collision.

He is to leave Wedtnesday night with a small party of top officials, including Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The mission will take about a week. Scheduled to go with the defense chief are the newly designated ambassador, Henry Cabot Lodge, and William P. Bundy, assistant secretary of state for Far Eastern affairs. President Johnson said Friday the U.S. military buildup will exceed the 75,000 men so far announced. It could go go beyond 100,000 men by late summer — more than four times as many Americans as were in Viet Nam at the first of the year. Big Troop Buildup? Some sources suggested a possible speed-up in a tentative plan calling for more than 129,000 U.S. troops to be in Viet Nam as of Oct. 1. Ultimately, the total may go much higher. The assessment of Communist gains is a somber one. In the past six months, the Reds have cut virtually all the important road and rail communications. They have isolated (Turn to Page 2A, Col. 3) the present system of free access has resulted in a national soup kitchen of health." Bussey asserted that giving patients free access to their national health doctors "is only feasible if there are enough doctors to man it." "There are not enough doctors," he declared, "and the position worsens every day. Another delegate, Dr. D. L. Williams, said a certain amount of abuse of the right to free visits to doctors was expectable but "we now know that we do 16 per cent of our work on 4 per cent of our patients." Williams said this has "corroded the idealism of general practice and interfered with the service given to the genuinely sick." Representatives of the association have been negotiating with the Health Ministry for months for improved pay and working conditions. The ministry already has turned down one plea that general practitioners be permitted to charge for consultations. Dr. J. C. Cameron, chairman of the B.M.A. committee which has been carrying on the negotiations, asked the delegates: "If I go back and say to the Health Ministry that you are insisting on such payment and the answer is again 'no' are you prepared to make this a resignation issue?" There was a loud chorus of Scientists are hopeful that the pictures of Mars taken from the Mariner 4 satellite may help them determine if the planet can sustain life.

Pitfalls Await Mariner Camera Editor's Note — After 228 days in flight, Mariner 4 will pass behind Mars on Wednesday. Then comes tlie great moment. Will the camera work, will the pictures get back okay, will they answer the riddle of life on Mars? Don't hold your breath — it may be weeks before you know. By Ralph Dighton Associated Press Science Writer PASADENA, Calif. — (/P) — One of the most exciting mysteries of space — does intelligent life exist, or has it ever existed on the planet Mars?—may be answered this week. The U.S. spacecraft Mariner 4, now a record 131 million miles from earth and at last report functioning well, is scheduled to fly past Mars about 7 p.m. (Racine time) Wednesday, July 14 snapping pictures 100 times better than any ever made with telescopes. Scientists say these photographs, outlining details a small| as 1.5 miles in diameter, could show whether the long dark lines seen on Mars really are canals and whether the oasis-like smudges at their intersections are complexes of structures like our cities. But the pictures most likely to show such details may not be released to the public for weeks or even months. Propulsion 'yes" from the delegates.

Early Release Possible There is always the chance, sure may force earlier release of pictures. Especially if word should leak out that the photographs, indistinct as they may be, contain evidence of tool-using beings. Dr. Robert Leighton, Cali- of course, that mounting pres- fornia Institute of Technology physcist and chief of the team chosen to study the photographs, says the first one or two may show only the "limb" or edge of the planet, at the start of a 4,000 -mile- long sweep from north to south. These would be taken from a height of about 7,000 miles, at an angle. The best photographs. Core Area Survey Shows Interest in Joining Improvement Moves More than one-third of about 300 families interviewed in a canvass of 18 square blocks on Racine's near-north side have expressed interest in being part of a community improvement group. Carroll A. Dickinson, executive director of the Urban League which made the survey, said Saturday this expressed civic mindedness might be a starting point in initiating a project directed at making improvements in the area surveyed. 25% Are Transients The area is bounded, in general, by St. Patrick St. on the north, Frederick St. on the west. State St. on the south and Douglas Ave. on the east. Basic aim of the canvass was to find out "what we can do to help better assimilate this segment of our population," Dickinson said. The survey, conducted last month but still being analyzed, also showed: 1. At least 25 per cent of the inhabitants in the area are transients. 2. Many of the residents are interested in learning another skill. 3. Most of the people quizzed have grievances—and they named them. Report Findings Thursday Dickinson said the findings will be discussed Thursday at 7:30 p.m. with the advisory board to the City Council's C o m m i t tee on Community Improvement "so the group can begin to make judgments on what geographic area they want to make an impact on, the money needed and the people required." Dickinson said many of the volunteers who helped make the survey are members of Minority groups as are a large Lumber of the residents. Of the 40 canvassers, the majority were Negroes, about a half dozen were Latin American, and five or six were white. He said the survey showed that at least 25 per cent of the persons in the core portion of the survey area have lived there less than two years. In addition, there is a high degree of renting and a correspondingly high incidence of neighborhood instability. Interest in New Skills Many of the people reside in the city very briefly, Dickinson added, and do not feel a part of Racine; they are just here to work. He said that many of the Negroes questioned said they were not using services offered in the Vocational School, but that many voiced an interest in training to acquire another job skill to raise their earning power. List Complaints Most frequent dissatisfaction was expressed over the large number of bars in the area, children making too much noise, property not being kept in good condition, poor street lighting, and cars buzzing through the streets, the survey showed. Further studies in other areas of the city, as well as more concentrated ones in the same section, will depend on the wishes of the mayor's study group, Dickinson said., snapped 1,000 miles closer to the surface with the camera pointing nearly straight down, would be withheld from im mediate publication. If the first-released pictures are as meager as Leighton expects, about all that the world will glean immediately from the $1000 million Mariner program will be some scientific tidbits about the density of Mars' atmosphere and the intensity of radiation trapped in its magnetic field, if the plane has one. Radiation Hazard That radiation, incidentally, may become a hazard in the final hours of Mariner 4 's approach to Mars. Because Mariner 4 would be the first earth craft to report from the vicinity of Mars — the radio on Russia's Zond 2, launched two days after the U.S. vehicle's takeoff Nov. 28, failed weeks ago — no one knows whether Mars has a magnetically trapped zone of radiation like the so-called Van Allen belt around earth. Some scientists believe Mars' magnetic field could hold enough trapped radiation from the sun to confuse or damage Mariner 4 's electronic control systems. With its aiming devices blinded, the camera might be pointing in some other direction as it flies past Mars. Mars' atmospheric density — a key clue in determining whether life could exist — will be measured by calculating changes in radio-signal strength as Mariner 4 swings behind the planet. The signal, aimed at earth, will have to go through the Martian at(Tum to Page 2A, CoL 3) LBJ Accepts Resignations of Zuckert, Rowan JOHNSON CITY .Texas — (JP) — President Johnson waded through a batch of resignations and appointments Saturday and in the process lost his U.S. Information Agency director and named a new secretary of the Air Force. And on a day of mingled work and relaxation around the LBJ Ranch, Johnson predicted that July 9 — the date of Senate passage of a health and hospital care bill and House passage of a voting rights measure — "will be the Everest of this session." The president described House action on a measure designed to reinforce the right of the Negro to the ballot as "a victory for every American who believes the strength of our democracy rests on the right of every citizen to share in its direction." But the top ranking Negro I in the executive branch ot ithe goverranent^ GatV T, Rowan, is stepping out as director of the U.S. Information Agency to resume a career in journalism. Rowan was one of Johnson's first major appointees and, presidential aides said, the first to leave. He was sworn in as head of the U.S.I.A., which spreads information on America through foreign lands, on Feb. 28, 1964. No successor has been chosen.
