(AP Wirephoto) San Salvador Students Demonstrate Against LBJ By PAUL FINCH Associated Press Writer SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — More than 2,000 jeering students denounced President Johnson as the "Murderer of Vietnam" and promised a massive protest demonstration today when the U.S. chief executive arrives for a summit conference with five Central American presidents. Police and National Guard units did not interfere with a students' march Friday night, but Col. Alberto Medrane of the National Guard pledged that he would not let the demonstrators disrupt Johnson's motorcade from the airport later today. The students yelled "Get out of Vietnam," distributed leaflets urging people to "decorate" Johnson's face with eggs and carried placards referring to the summit meeting as "The Dragon and five mosquitos." They are not Communists, just students," said another National Guard officer. "Look at the students in . the United States, they are doing the same thing these days:" Earlier Friday four separate 21-gun salutes boomed as host President Fidel Sanchez Hernandez greeted President Joaquin Trejos Fernandez of Costa Rica, Anastasio Somoza of Nicaragua, Jilio Cesar Mendez Montenegro of Guateamala and Oswaldo Lopez Arellane of Honduras. After their first meeting the five issued a declaration expressing concern over possible restrictions by more developed countries against Central American exports and urging that their countries pass jointly-a tax on imports into Central America. Each president supported economic integration of the-five coffee and sugar republics, currently faced with large foreign trade deficits. Johnson will spend two days here, and will briefly visit the capitals of the other 'four parti' cipating presidents before returning to Washington on Monday. U.S. officials hope his 5,900-mile journey will spur economic progress in the Central American Common Market anc help create similar economic mergers in other parts of the world. Mrs. Johnson and daughter Luci Nugent will accompany the President. They will join other first ladies at a picnic m the countryside and visits to a crater lake and some volcanic ruins. CHICAGO (AP)-Mayor ftich- i afd J. Daley has set up a meet- ng in his office Monday for officials of Illinois Bell Telephone Co., and leaders of the striking nternational Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. "I think there will be some good news," Daley said Friday night. The strike, which threatens to disrupt the Democratic National Convention scheduled Aug. 26 n Chicago, began its 59th day oday. Daley did not explain his op- imism for next week's negotia- ions but he indicated he had some suggestions which could end the lengthy walkout of 11,000 1BEW workers. There were several other developments in the deadlock Friday: Illinois Bell president James W. Cook rejected an invitation to speak at strikers' rally Sunday. Cook told Robert E. Nickey, an IBEW representative, "My appearance at your meeting is not needed to 'sell' our proposal. I believe it will sell itself." Bell has offered wage increases totaling $26 a week over three years. The IBEW is demanding a pay boost of $19.50 a week for the first year and an additional $10 a week for the remaining six months of the ex isting contract. Bell posted $10,000 reward Life in South Vietnam Better Than in North, Defectors Say SAIGON (AP) — "Dear Uncle Ho," life in South Vietnam is better than the suffering in the North, says a letter purportedly signed by 55 North Vietnamese defectors and currently being beamed over government propaganda broadcasts. Addressed to Ho Chi Minh, the 78-year-old North Vietnamese president, the letter was said today to have been signed by 55 former soldiers of the Quyet Thang—Determined to Win- Regiment who volunteered for an infiltration assignment into the South last month. i It is being broadcast by the Voice of Freedom, a government radio station that beams propaganda exclusively to North Vietnam, and by Radio Saigon which reaches listeners in the South. Saying they wanted to address "some sincere words" to Ho, the defectors, according to the broadcast, wrote: "With an absolutely zealous patrio'tism we responded to your appeal by energetically volunteering to go to South Vietnam, kill Americans and save our fatherland and our people from the domination of imperialism. "We have remembered your advice well. That advice was that when arriving in South Vietnam, we would be heartily welcomed and supported by the people in South Vietnam and that the troops of the South Vietnamese government have been badly demoralized and that if we were captured by them we would be killed immediately. "But oh, dear Uncle, your advice is contrary to the reality that meets us here. When our troops came to any place here the people abandoned their houses and properties, and then carried their children and evacuated. They ran from us. They also refused to furnish us with supplies and food. "The soldiers of the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) have a very high spirit of fighting and were also very kind. They defeated us, but even so gave us kind treatment with humanity... They cared for our wounds and gave us food and recreation and let us watch television, movies and exercise in sport, etc... "Besides all this we would like to present to you the following: The GVN (government of South Vietnam), ARVN troops and South Vietnamese people have initiated a benevolent open arms policy, welcoming our comrades to rally because of the clemency of this policy. "The standard of living in South Vietnam is very high. Here people are leading a happy comfortable and easy life, full of animation."

The commission announced the new policy Friday and proposed at the same time a new rule under which broadcasters would be required to file with renewal applications a statement showing what they are doing to promote employment and programming aimed at minority groups. A- spokesman for the National Association of Broadcasters in Washington said the organization would have no comment until it could study the commission's notice. The FCC estimated it would take four to six months to put the proposed rule into effect which would allow for filing of petitions by all interested parties and possible public hearings. Henry Geller, FCC general cations that they are pledged not to discriminate against anyone on the basis of race. The FCC said complaints a station is discriminating on the basis of race in programming and hiring will be. referred to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or to the appropriate state fair employment group, whichever has jurisdiction. The FCC said it will act itself when substantial complaints are lodged against a station which fall undre neither federal nor state civil rights provisions. In its notice, the commission said the federal equal employment law applies to all employers with 25 or more employes. Between 80 and 90 per cent of television stations fall in this category but it covers only 10 per cent of radio stations, the FCC said. Shipley Addresses Demos in Godfrey U.S. Rep.
