House Trims $7 Billion
From LBJ Budget Plan

WYASHINGTON MP)-The House
passed last night a bill designed
to cut government spending an
estimated $7 billion in the year
ending June 30.
Fighting to hold down proposed
cuts in President Johnson's bud-
get, administration supporters
were defeated again and again in
a complex struggle that ended
with Republicans and southern
Democrats triumphant.

Security, welfare and medicare
programs.
This provision was sponsored by
Rep. Jamie L. Whitten, (D-Miss).
Added to it was another limi-
tation that was backed solidly by
Republicans, headed by Rep..
Frank T. Bow of Ohio. It would
set what Bow called an absolute
ceiling of $131.5 billion on spend-
ing this year-a cut of not less
than $5 billion, but estimated by

ney said. Twice before, governors
conferences have issued declara-
tions of Vietnam support.
A three-quarters vote is required
to adopt a resolution. Thus the
Republicans have morehthan
enough strength to block the en-
dorsement filed by Utah Gov. Cal-
vin L. Rampton. Conference action
will come tomorrow.
The GOP state executives, who
have half the votes aboard ship,
obviously were wary of any action
which Democrats might file away
for use in the 1968 White House
campaign.
Reagan, again insisting he is not
a candidate for president, refused
to flatly renounce White House
ambitions. New York Gov. Nelson
A. Rockefeller said Tuesday, "I do
not want to be president."
GOP Statement
The Republican decision on
Vietnam was announced after a
caucus by Gov. John A. Love of
Colorado.
He read a GOP statement that
said: "Next year, the presidential
election year, will be the time of
a great deabte on the foreign pol-
icy of the United States. At that
time the policies of the President
will be fully and appropriately an-
alyzed and subjected to searching
scrutiny.
"Accordingly, we Republican
governors do not see that the na-
tional interest would be served by
discussion among governors at this
National Governors Conference of
the subject of Vietnam.
Rampton submitted I the Dem-
ocratic resolution 'which he and
Gov. John B. Connally of Texas
drafted.
The key passage proposes that
the "National Governors Confer-
ence reaffirm to the President, to
the American public, to the serv-
icemen and women of the military
forces of the United States and its
allies its resolute support of our
commitments and responsibilities
in the world, including our support
of the military defense of Vietnam
against aggression and our con-
tinuing search for a .meaningful
solution assuring peace and stabil-
ity in that area."

The official position was that
there has been no real change in
U.S. policy which holds that mil-
itary expenditures "'should not
get in the way of over-all econ-
omic development" in Latin Amer-
ica.
Nevertheless, last August the
United States urged Western Euro-
pean allies not to sell arms to
Latin America and it specifically
vetoed the sale by Britain of six
Canberra jet bombers to Peru.
Later in the summer the United
States opposed the sale by France
to Peru of 12 Mirage fighter-
bombers.;
Indications are that the United
States would still like to keep the
1,400-m.p.h. Mirage out of South
American skies. Officials said pri-
vately they hope Peru might find
the U.S. offer of F5s attractive.
At the time the Peruvian-French
deal was reported, a State Depart-
ment spokesman tartly remarked,
"We think economic and social
development have a higher prior-
ity now than this sort of thing."
