effort to destroy the "objectives
and forces" of North Viet Nam
probably would result in massive
Chinese intervention in the war.
Expgssed Reservation
Kennedy expressed some reser-
vations about the course Johnson
is pursuing. He said, for example,
that he, has such reservations
about the resumption of the bomb-
ing of North Viet Nam because he
is unsure of its limitations and
The c-monmittee wound up its
public sessions Friday with an in-
vitation from Secretary of State
Dean Ryusk to Congress to vote on
Viet Narn policy "if there is any
doubt" about it. Chairman J. W.
Fulbright (D-Ark) said he sees no
need for further public hearings.
The committee is to decide at a
meeting tomorrow whether to ask
Secretary of Defense Robert S.
McNamara and Vice President
Hubert H. Humphrey to appear at
closed session. Both have declined
to testify publicly.
Focus on Bill
The major focus of the policy
dispute shifts to the Senate floor
tomorrow in consideration of a
$4.8 billion Viet Nam military
authorization bill.
Kennedy said that in the un-
conditional discussions the Presi-
dent has expressed willingness to
undertake, both sides would bring

Kennedy said of the Viet Cong
and its political arm, the National

"There are three things you can
do with such groups: kill or re-

Wilson is due here tomorrow for
his first visit to the Soviet capital
singe he became prime minister in
October 1964. He will meet with
Premier Alexei N. Kosgyin and
other Soviet leaders during his
three-day stay.
Izvestia said London is appar-
ently giving top priority to "jus-
tifying the aggressive actions and
intentions of the United States
and West Germany -- no matter
how dangerous this may be for the
cause of peace."
The paper warned Wilson that
his support of U.S. actions in Viet
Nam could not be isolated and
ignored. It said this "has, poisoned
to a considerable extent British-
Soviet relations."
Izvestia threw out veiled taunts
about alleged lack of British in-
dependence in foreign. policy and
loss of influence in Western coun-
cils. It also reminded Wilson that
he and his party had taken a less
pro-American line before they
came to power.
It indicated that the Soviet lead-
ers will bend their efforts during
Wilson's visit to get him to make
a "more sober estimation of the
dangerous consequences of the es-
calation of the war in Asia by
American militarists and the re-
venge-seeking demands of Bonn."I
