Johnson Ends Career WASHINGTON (AP) - Gen. Harold K. Johnson, whose appointment as Army chief of staff made a big splash four years ago, quietly leaves the Pentagon for civilian life today. The only formal event slated for Johnson's last day was a White House ceremony at which President Johnson was to give an award to the retiring general. Gen. Johnson asked that there be no big Pentagon show marking his retirement. The mild- mannered officer long ago stopped his people from rendering him honors during such things as base inspections or other visits. Johnson, now 56, was a survivor of the Bataan death march and was held prisoner by the Japanese for three years in World War II. While Johnson marks his final days with routine administrative chores, his successor, Gen. William C. Westmoreland, the former commander in Vietnam, will be arriving at Andrews Air Force Base. Then at 9 a.m. Wednesday "Westy" will be sworn in during a 5-minute ceremony scheduled in the office of Secretary of the Army Stanley R. Resor. 6IVE ITTOYOU,BURLING^yOU INSPIRE!?

Surprise Bus Strike Hits Windy City CHICAGO (AP) - A surprise strike of Chicago Transit Author rity (CTA) drivers sent an estimated 200,000 riders scurrying for other transportation during the morning rush hours today. CTA officials said the walkout was unauthorized and apparently was confined to the city's South and West sides where about 650 buses were idled. A CTA spokesman said the company had received no demands from the union and knew of no reason for the walkout. Officials of the Amalgamated Transit Union, to which the drivers belong, said they were investigating the work stoppage. Pickets appeared at five CTA garages on the South and West Sides early this morning, virtually halting all bus service emanating from those terminals. Bus riders waiting on street corners for transportation to their jobs were told of the strike by cruising police patrols and advised to turn to subway and elevated train service. CTA officials said.subway and elevated service was increased in some areas after the walkout began. Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, July 2, the 184th day of 1968.
