Kennedy, LBJ Clash Over War Panel

Napalm Use in War Increases,
Reaches Unparalleled Volume

WASHINGTON (P)-Sen. Rob-
ert F. Kennedy and the Johnson
administration have exchanged
politically explosive charges over
the New Yorker's proposal to stay
out of the presidential race if U.S.
policy in Vietnam were revised.
High administration sources la-
beled as an ultimatum Kennedy's
proposal that President Johnson
appoint a blue ribbon panel to
work on war policy revisions.
They said Johnson spurned it as
a totally unacceptable political
deal.
Kennedy acknowledged Sunday
he proposed the commission, but
called published reports on it dis-
torted and blamed that on White
House leaks to news media.
Charged Kennedy, who entered
the race for the Democratic pres-
idential nomination on Saturday:
"This incident reveals in the
sharpest possible terms why the
American people no longer believe
the President and the White
House; Why the credibility of our
political leadership has been so
critically eroded and why it is
clear that the only way we are
going to change our policy in

Vietnam is to change administra-
tions in Washington.
In a 1,500 word statement, Ken-
nedy said he told Secretary of
Defense Clark M. Clifford last
Thursday that his candidacy
wouldn't be necessary if Johnson
accepted the commission proposal.
Kennedy put it this way: "I
made it clear that if it (the com-
mission) were more than a pub-
lic relations gimmick, if both the
President's announcement of the
commission and its membership
signalled a clear-cut willingness
to seek a wider path to peace in
Vietnam, then my declaration of
candidacy would no longer be
necessary."
But the administration source
said Kennedy demanded that any
statement announcing the com-
mission indicate that Johnson had
"grave doubt of the wisdom of his
past course and that was why
this reappraisal was necessary."
The source said Kennedy want-
ed to be on the commission and
presented to Clifford a list of oth-
er possible members.
Johnson immediately rejected
the proposal, the source said, on
grounds it smacked of a political

deal, cast doubt on his Vietnam
policies, might encourage North
Vietnam to think U.S. resolve was
weakening and furthermore rep-
resented an attempt to usurp
presidential authority.
Newsweek magazine quoted a
White House aide as calling the
proposal "the damnedest piece of
political blackmail" he had ever
heard of.
Kennedy, saying he was sur-
prised that "the traditional rules
of confidence governing White
House conversations are no longer
respected by the White House it-
self," charged published versions
of the affair "fall so short of the
truth that I believe the American
people are entitled to the facts."
Kennedy said Johnson had first
appeared interested in the pro-
posal but later rejected it, in part
- said the Senator - because he
didn't want Keninedy on the com-
mission.
Kennedy said subsequent talks
between the White House and.
Theodore Sorensen, the former
aide to President John F. Kenne-
dy who presented the proposal
to Johnson, made it clear that:
So long as Lyndon B.

Johnson was President our Viet-
nam policy would consist of only
more war, more troops, more kill-
ing and more senseless destruction
of the country we were supposed-
ly there to save.
"That night I decided to run
for President."
That night was Thursday, three
days after Kennedy said Sorensen
first broached the matter with
Johnson after responding to what
the Senator said was a presiden-
tial invitation to visit the White
House.
Kennedy said the commission
idea originated last February with
an unnamed "Democratic politi-
cal leader who is a friend of mine
and supporting President Johnson
for re-election." The New Yorker
said Sorensen. "did not get this

But compared to its early, ex-

reached a peak of sophistication in
killing effectiveness. The chemical
compound has been refined to the
point that its extreme tempera-

liquid steel.
Air Force statistics reflect the
napalm escalation in Vietnam:
2.131 tons dropped in 1963: 1,777
tons in 1964: 17.659 in 1965: and
54.620 in 1966.
Its ugly nature and increased
use have made napalm an anti-
