WASHINGTON (R) - President
Johnson announced yesterday the
resignation of John W. Gardner
as secretary of health, education
$ and welfare. Gardner is the second
Cabinet officer to resign within
Gardner's resignation c a m e
amid signs he has become increas-
ingly discouraged by the way the
Vietnam war has limited domestic
programs he considers essential to
the nation's well being, although
the White House said Vietnam
had nothing to do with it.
The resignation, which Johnson
announced at the White House
with "deep regret," followed the
Nov. 29 announcement that Rob-
ert S. McNamara would leave his
M job as secretary of defense. Both
United Nations Ambassador Ar-
thur J. Goldberg reportedly will
resign early this year, and other
major resignations recently have
included the budget director and
the chairman of the Council of
w Economic Advisers, the Interstate
Commerce Commission and the
Civil Aeronautics Board.
Return to Carnegie
Gardner, 55, said he will return
March 1 to the Carnegie Corp.
whose presidency he left two and
one half years ago on a two-year
leave of absence. He said he will
serve Carnegie as a consultant on
a special project.
The President did not name
Gardner's successor, but there was
speculation that the job might
be filled for the remainder of this
year by Undersecretary Wilbur J.
SCoh~en, who has served as a top
assistant to the last three secre-
As secretary, Gardner has en-
gineered major reorganizations of
the Public Health Service and
other department units and has
4 nearly completed a reshuffling of
the entire health operation.
Word of the resignation came
as a surprise even to some of
Gardner's closest associates, al-
though they would not have been
surprised to see him resign at the'
end of Johnson's current term in
The White House said the an-
nouncement was made sooner
than expected because of news
stories speculating that the res-
ignation was coming. .
A spokesman for the secretary
had issued a statement Wednes-
day saying Gardner had not sub-
mitted his resignation and was
not dissatisfied with the new
budget, due to be announced Mon-
Gardner fought for a higher
department budget than Johnson
would agree to. And he is reported
to have complained to friends
after recent talks at the LBJ
ranch in Texas.
Nor was Gardner happy about
cuts ordered by Congress which
will reduce Welfare Department
spending by $550 million between
now and July 1.
Gardner's discouragement with
the nation's progress in solving
its domestic problems-especially
in the cities--has been no secret.
In a speech Dec. 27, he said,
1 "It does not seem to me that
either the Congress or the public
is fully aware of the alarming
character of our domestic crisis.
We are in deep trouble as a people.
And history is not going to deal
kindly with a rich nation that
will not tax itself to cure its
While Congress has balked at
Johnson's plea for a 10 per cent
tax surcharge, Gardner said re-
cently he thinks an even greater
increase is needed if urban prob-
lems are to be met.
Depends on the giant. If the
giant happens to be Ford Motor
Company, it can be a distinct
advantage. See your placement

The commission also denied Mc-
Carthy's contentions that under

its rules regarding personal attacks

CBS and NBC, previously had re-
