White House, Pentagon: No Comment
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Secretary of Defense Robert S. Mc-
Namara will be selected as president of the World Bank on
Wednesday, it was learned last night.
McNamara, defense chief since 1961, will resign from
President Johnson'k cabinet to take the $40,000-a-year tax-
free post, succeeding George Woods.
The selection of McNamara will be formally accomplished
when the board of directors of the international lending
organization meets tomorrow.
By custom, the United States nominates a candidate for
president of the World Bank. The role goes to the United
States because it is the largest single financial contributor to
the bank. McNamara's nomination was forwarded to the bank
last week.
It was understood that President Johnson concurred in
the move. The selection of McNamara for the World Bank
job had been reported earlier by the Washington Post and
the New York Times.
The Indian Nations radio network in Oklahoma also',said

that Dow had been hurt by a boy-

recent colkc-e demonstrations had'
hindred i ecruiting, and th;i t the

But C eflett denied Gers'acke"s
statement contending it was
"twisted by a reporter."
"The reporter asked an opened-
end question as to whether we
would continue to produce na-
palm in the future," Coslett ex-
plained. "As far as the president
is concerned we have no change
of policy."
Coslett admitted some "long-
term damage" due to recent dem-
onstrations, but added, "We have
not been able to measure any ef-
fect on sales."

Supports Campaign
S The Associated Press
J. McCarthy'(D-Minn), yesterday
scheduled a news conference for
Thursday at which he is expected
to-announce he will seek the Dem-
ocratic presidential nomination as
an anti-war candidate.
In this connection, McCarthy
made publicca list of critical state-
ments he has made a'bout Presi-
lent Johnson's Vietnani policies,
beginning in January, 1966. This
seemed intended as a campaign
paper to document his opposition
to the presidential course.
Clear Indications
McCarthy has given clear in-
dications that he plans to enter
some presidential primaries in an
effort to muster a significant pro-
test against Johnson. He has said
he doesnnot expect to defeat the
President for nomination but
hopes to influence Johnson to
change his policies.
Meanwhile, McCarthy got his
first open ally in the House. Rep.
Don Edwards, a California Demo-F
zrat, pledged to try to swing his
state behind McCarthy.
The Minnesota senator listed as
his first "significant break" with
the President on foreign policy a
Sept. 30, 1965 Senate speech in
which he complained that he, and
his colleagues had not been con-
sulted about Johnson's decision to
send troops to the Dominican
McCarthy was one of 16 senators
who wrote Johnson Jan. 27, 1966
opposing resumption of the bomb-
] ing of North Vietnam which had
been suspended for a month.
UN Move
On Jan. 31, 1966, McCarthy ap-
plauded Johnson's move to bring
the Vietnam question before the
United Nations, but said he be-
lieved the step would have been
more effective if it hadn't been
taken simultaneously with the re-
sumption of air attacks.
As one of those who voted for
the Tonkin Gulf Resolution in
1964, McCarthy told the Senate
March 1, 1966 that it did not give
the President any more power than
he already possessed. He '-said it
ought neither to be rescinded nor
