Resubm its Little Change, Johnson Requests Extension
In Russians For Arms Control Agency

Livil Jiglits Program,


Urges Action
By Congress
Despite Riots
WASHINGTON () - President
VJohnson asked Congress yesterday
for virtually the same civil rights
program he sought last year.
In his message, Johnson urged
Congress not to use recent big city
riots and the views of extremists
as an excuse for refusing to enact
the civil rights legislation.
The President called for:
-Stronger federal criminal laws
to protect citizens from violence
while exercising such rights as
voting and attending desegreated
-Greater authority for the
Equal Employment Opportunity
-Nondiscriminatory jury selec-
tion at both federal and state
-Open housing.
Equal Justice and Opportunity
"Lawlessness must be punished
0--sternly and promptly," he said.
"But the criminal conduct of some
must not weaken our resolve to
deal with the real grievances of all
those who suffer discrimination.
Nothing can justify the continued
denial of equal justice and oppor-
tunity to every American."
Those close to the President who
are knowledgeable about civil
rights remain optimistic about the
greater part of the President's
One high ranking source fore-
cast passage at this session of Con-
ress of these key parts of the civil
rights program:
Prohibit Force
-A federal law thatwould pro-
hibit the use of force to prevent
the exercise by minorities of such
rights as voting, registering to vote,
attending previously segregated
A puble schools, obtaining a job or
service at public accommodations.
The Senate currently is consider-
ing this measure, which has been
approved by the House.
-Wider power for the Equal
Employment Opportunity Com-
mission to permit it to order em-
ployers and labor unions to stop
discriminatory practices.
-Wider power for the Equal
Employment Opportunity Commis-
sion to permit it to order employ-
ers and labor unions to stop dis-
criminatory practices. If the com-
pany or union refused, the Com-
mission could seek enforcement in
the courts. Neither the House nori
the Senate has acted on this pro-i
-Legislation to make certaini
that federal juries are selected on,
a random basis such as voter lists
,and other objective standards.
This already has received Senate
But the administration sees ai
tough fight for adoption of two
other proposals:
-State jury selection: to requireI
random selection of juries in the

Soviets Remain Firm
On Vietnam as Talks
With Britai Close
MOSCOW ()--Prime Minister
Harold Wilson said yesterday So-
viet leaders stuck to their hard,
line on Vietnam in his talks in the
Kremlin but he insisted a political,
settlement must be found.
Shortly before taking off on his{
return to London, after a 51 hour
visit, the British leader said
neither side had changed its viws
on Vietnam. Britain supports U.S.
policy in general.
"It is no secret," Wilson said,
"that explorations about Vietnam
are going on outside the context
of our talks here in the Kremlin.
I don't want to say anything that
would make them more difficult."
Wilson stated that the Soviet
Union maintained its support of'
North Vietnam and condemnation
of the United States as an aggres-
The problem, Wilson continued,
was "how we can get this problem
away from the military line-be-
cause there will never be a mili-
tary solution to this problem-and
back to a political line that must
be the solution to a fine and
honorable settlement."
"Neither the Soviet nor the Brit-
ish government has sought to ne-
gotiate nor have we the authority
to negotiate, but we have our job
to do jointly or separately," he
That job is trying to encourage
peace, Wilson indicated.
"I will be able to tell President
Johnson the exact positions of the
Soviet Union on not only Vietnam
but all important questions," Wil-
son said.
- The prime minister will meet
with Johnson in Washington on
Feb. 8.
Wilson said the Kremlin talks
covered' every major issue of world
afairs, and besides Vietnam in-
cluded the tense Middle East,
European security and favorable
progress at Geneva toward a treaty
banning- the spread, of nuclear
Concerning the Middle East,
Wilson declared,
"We must all use our influence
with our frineds, who may be on
opposite sides in this Middle East-
ern situation, to secure the success
of the mission" led by the UN
special representative} Gunnar
Under a UN resolution of Nov.

by Arab Israeli tension and par-
ticularly last June's war.

WASHINGTON (R) - President
Johnson asked Congress yesterday
to extend for three years the. life
of the Arms Control and Disarma-
ment Agency, declaring "the ulti-
mate test of our century" is con-
fining nuclear power to peaceful
Johnson noted the agency's key
role in installation of the Wash-
ington Moscow hot line and in the
new treaty aimed at banning nu-
clear weapons from space. Then he
"Now the energy and perserv-
erance of the agency has brought
us close to the next great step for-
ward: A treaty banning the spread
of nuclear weapons."
The agency is due to expire June
30 unless Congress keeps it alive.
The President, in letters to the
presiding officers of the House and
Find H-Bombs
off Greenland
WASHINGTON ,)-Pieces of
one or more of four hydrogen
bombs aboard an Air Force B52
that crashed Sunday off Green-
land have been found, the Penta-
gon reported yesterday.
But "it still has not determined
whether parts of the plane or of
the four nuclear weapons carried
on the plane went into or through
the ice," the Defense Department
said. Left unanswered was whether
the bombs are imbedded in the ice
or are on the surface.
This was the first official con-
firmation of reports that the num-
ber of nuclear bombs aboard the
plane totaled four.
The announcement did not make
clear precisely where the parts of
the hydrogen bombs were found,
but indivations were that this was
on the thick ice cover over North
Star Bay where the plane went
The Pentagon said earlier search
teamis using dog sleds and heli-
copters found scattered debrisand
fuel burns near the impact site
about seven miles southwest of
Thule, Greenland. It said scientists
had detected what is described as
low level alpha radiation there.
The Pentagon has refused to
discuss the size of the bombs, but
sources indicate they were 1.1
megaton hydrogen bombs-the
equivalent explosive force 1.1 mil-
lion tons of TNT.

Senate. urging its continuance, agreed to a complete draft of a
said: proposed nonproliferation treaty.

"If men can join together with'
their neighbors to harness the
power of nuclear energy for peace-
ful progress, they can transform
the world. If not, they may well
destroy the world."
The agency's director. William
C. Foster, is chief U.S. negotiator
in talks with other nations, espe-
cially the Soviet Union, aimed at
halting the spread of nuclear wea-
Johnson's message noted that
the United States and Russia have

"We believe such a treaty rep-
resents the most constructive way
to avoid the terrible dangers in the
criminal waste which all men rec-,
ognize would flow from the furth-
er spread of nuclear weapons."
Johnson said.
The President added that such
a treaty would not end interna-
tional tensions, nor, eliminate the
shadow of nuclear war but said "it
will reduce the chances of nuclear
disaster arising from local dis-

Detroit Mayor
To Ask Curb
On Gun Sales
DETROIT (I)-Detroit Mayor
Jerome Cavanagh said Tuesday
night he expects within a week
to submit to Common Council a
gun control law "to curb the arms
race that has been going on in this
Calling the measure "contro-
versial," Cavanagh said it is nec-
essary if we are to restore sanity
and balance to our community"
and to "avert the truly terrifying
prospect that these stockpiling of
weapons might be used in a sense-
less outpouring of hatred."
The ordinance, similar to New
York City's, would require persons
to register all shotguns and rifles.
At present, Detroit requires regis-
tration only of small firearms.

For a long time, North Korea's
regime has been publicly grumbl-
ing about the continued presence
of U.S. forces in South Korea,
implying from time to time that
the Soviet Union by no means
was doing all it could about the
If the North Koreans intended'
to maneuver Soviet power into a
more active espousal of their
cause, they may have considered
that the time should be now,
when U.S. forces are thinly
spread around the world and the
Americans are, deeply committed
in Southeast Asia.
The North Korean Communist
party, while publicly bowing to
Moscow's ascendancy in world
communism, has chosen to strad-
dle the fence in the feud between
pro-Moscow and pro-Peking ele-j
ments of the movement.
The party in 1966 issued what
many interpreted as a declaration
of independence from both sides
so far as the basic dispute was
concerned. This however, did not
prevent the North Koreans from
complaining frequently to Mos-
cow about the situation on their
peninsula. The grumbling grew
into a debate in the pages of the

Bolshevik anniversary last No-
vember, President Choe Yong-
kon of the North Korean Polit-
buro pointedly told the Russians
"Aggression of U.S. imperialism in
Vietnam is directed not only
against the Vietnamese people,
but is a challenge to the socialist
countries and the liberation
struggle, and a threat to peace
in the whole world."
