Johnson Denies Reports
Of Administration Split

Pleads for Restraint

WASHINGTON (P) - President
Johnson said Friday there is no
deep division in his administration
on the conduct of the war in Viet-
nam. And he almost snorted at a
suggestion Secretary of Defense
Robert S. McNamara might be at
the point of resigning.
Johnson told a news conference
that while there is not complete
agreement on everything among
himself, MeNamara, Secretary of
State Dean Rusk and the military
high command, there is a sur-
prising and a very agreeable
amhount of unanimity-including
agreement on all the 300 targets
picked for bombing in North Viet-

replied in measured tones: ~
"Absolutely not. That is the
most ridiculous, nonsensical re-
port that I have seen, I think,
since I have been President. Any-
one who knows Secretary McNa-
mara would know that on the face
that was not true.

ing one point of view against es-
calation and the Joint Chiefs of
Staff another position In favor of
hitting additional targets.
While he was knocking down

a questioner that reports that
there might be "some kind of a
new peace move around about the
time of the Vietnamese elections"

one's head."

Last August, Ackley called in-

The senator and the President

"In my opinion, the differences
between the Joint Chiefs of Staff

been exaggerated," Mansfield said.
"Basically, they are more alosely
