with Prime.Minister Harold Wilson, of Great Britain, follow-

Douglas, who had temporarily
blocked the Army from sending
the men to Vietnam said the issue
was not the power of Congress
"but how legislation shall be read,
in order, if possible, to avoid cre-
ating a 'credibility gap' between
the people and their government."
The reservists lodged two major
claims: That in being called up
for 24 months as units they were
not given credit for active duty
time some already had served as
individuals, and that they could
be called up only in time of war
or of national emergency declared
by Congress. .
Their appeals presented the first
challenges to the 1966 law which
authorized Johnson to mobilize
the reserve for Vietnam action.
Until the law was enacted re-
serve units could be called to ac-
tive duty only in time of war or of
national emergency.
The Supreme Court also was
asked yesterday to order that the,
names of presidential hopeful
George C. Wallace and candi-
dates for the Socialist Labor Party
be on the -Ohio ballot on Nov. 5.
Charles S. Lopeman, chief coun-
sel in the Ohio attorney general's
office, said any decision which
could be complied with in Wal-
lace's case must, be issued by the
court before Oct. 15. But he said it
would be impossible to get Socialist
Party names on the ballot this
year. f
Wallace,' presidential candidate
of the American Independent Par-
ty, is a write-in candidate in
Ohio-as are Socialist Party can-
didates-but Wallace's name has
been printed on the ballot on the
theory that it will be easier to
delete it than it would be to insert
it should the Supreme Court rule
in his favor.
