WASHINGTON ( -) - Three
Democratic senators said yester-
day no useful purpose will be
served by papering over deep di-
visions on Vietnam policy in the
name of national unity.
They offered what added up to
a rebuttal of President Johnson's'
contention that dissenters and
demonstrators are hindering tie
war effort and attempts to get
peace.
Johnson told a news conference
Wednesday that antiwar demon-
strations, such as that at the
Pentagon recently, do not con-
tribute to the peace in Vietnam;
nor help the men fighting there.
Dangerous Dissent
Senate Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana said the
right of dissent is being abused by
those who utter "vile expressions
of hatred" toward Johnson but
the war has "fostered deep and '
dangerous divisions at home. I
"It serves no useful purpose toI
blink at that fact in the name of
unity," he said. "A unity that is
surface-deep will impress no oneI
except ourselves. And in that re-
spect it is likely to be as mislead-
ingly dangerous as a beauty that
is skin deep."
Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore.)
condemned those who engage in
illegal demonstrations. But he
said supporters of the President's
Vietnam policies have the duty to
see to it that legitimate channels
of protest are kept open."
Forbidding Freedom
"Here the administration is in
serious trouble," he said. "Far
from demonstrating that repre-
sentative democracy affords dis-
senters full opportunity to com-
municate and to change public
- - - - - - -_ _ _ - I

policy where they can make a
convincing case, the administra-
tion is rapidly closing those
channels."
Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy (D-
Minn.) said this is not the time
to ask for Democratic party unity
on Vietnam.
"The recent projection of the
Vietnam issue by the secretary of
state to include all of Southeast
Asia, if not a confrontation with
Red China, makes debate of the
issue especially important," he
said.
Present Facts
Mansfield, who has opposed
escalation of the war, said there
is no use arguing the question of
how or why the United States
became involved in Vietnam.
"The fact is that we are in-
volved and the questions which
we must examine and re-examine
are how the conflict can be pre-
vented from spreading and how
it can be brought by negotiations,
as soon as possible, to an honor-
able conclusion," he said.
Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore.), a
persistent critic of Johnson's
Asian course, complained that
"hardly a day passes without
someone in high office denounc-,
ing the demonstrations and those
who engage in them."
Morse criticized Secretary of
State Dean Rusk for refusing to
appear publicly before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.

GARY, Ind. (A'} - Plans for a
National Guard peace - keeping
force for Gary's racially tense
mayoralty election Tuesday hit a
snag yesterday when a county
judge issued an order prohibiting!
mobilization of the troops.
Morgan County Superior Court
Judge Noble Littell cited an 1895
Indiana law barring the calling
out of troops within five days of
an election except in case of riot
or "imminent danger" of riot.
Discounts Any Danger
The judge discounted the "im-
minent danger" mentioned in
Gov. Roger Branigin's directive of
Thursday ordering troops into the
area.
But Indiana Atty. Gen. John
J. Dillon said he will ask a state
high court to dissolve the lower;
court order
"I know of no authority in any
court in the United States. let
alone the Morgan Superior Court,
to enjoin the governor when he is
acting as commander-in-chief of
the militia under the Indiana
Constitution," Dillon remarked.
"I will take the appropriate
legal action to dissolve this order
when the courts open Monday,"
he said.
There were reports that some
troops already were moving into

the Gary area of northwest In-
diana, but they could not be con-
firmed.
Littell filed his order at Mar-
tinsville, a small city south of
Indianapolis, on a complaint sign-
ed by Ralph Lett, a lawyer in,
nearby Mooresville. The county is'
one of those affected by the gov-
ernor's call for National Guard
troops.
Gary Elections;
The race in Gary, a steel-mak-
ing center of 180,000 population,
about 55 per cent Negro, pits
Democrat Richard G. Hatcher
against Republican Joseph B.
Radigan. Hatcher beat the in-
cumbent, A. Martin Katz, for the
Democratic nomination in the
May primary.
Reports have circulated for
weeks that the voting may trigger
rioting.
Justice Department attorneysl
filed suit Friday in U.S. District!
Court at neighboring Hammond
accusing John G. Krupa, county :

I

Democratic chairman, and other
officials of purging voter lists to
"decrease the Negro vote but not
the white vote." Krupa, in addi-
tion to his party post, is county
clerk and secretary of the county
election board and board of can-
vassers.
'Vote Unfair'
Earlier in the week, Hatcher
filed suit in U S. District Court
seeking an injunction delaying
the election, saying a fair vote
was impossible. He, too. cited
what he called discriminatory
purging of the voter lists, among
other things.
A hearing before a three-judge
panel is set for Hatcher's suit
Monday.
After Hatcher filed his suit,
the county election board restored
more than 5,200 names which had
been erased Oct. 25. Krupa said
the county attorney had advised
that the three-judge federal panel
would order the names restored.
