King Knocks'
U.S. Policy.
In Viet War
Violence Hinders
City Ghetto Reform;
Reflects Sick Society
NEW YORK (IP)-Martin Luther
King, Jr. said last night that the
United States is on the wrong side
of a world revolution and urged an
admission "that we have been
wrong from the beginning of our
adventure in Vietnam."
He called theUnited States "the
greatest purveyor of violence in
the world today," and pleaded for
a greater understanding of the
drama and fears .of newly emer-
ging nations.
In a major policy speech linking
his, criticism of the war with his
position as a civil rights leader,
King said his increasing opposi-
tion vas sparked in part by his
slum organizing campaign in
northern cities over the past three
years.
'Desperate, Rejected'
"As I have walked among the
desperate, rejected and angry
young men I have told- them that
Molotov cocktails and rifles would
not solve their problems," King
said, "maintaining my vonvictions
that social change comes most
meaningfully through nonviolent
action.
"But they asked, and rightly so,
what about Vietnam? They asked
if our own nation wasn't using
massive doses of violence to solve
its problems, to bring about the
changes it wanted.
"Their questigns hit home, and
I knew that I could never again
raise my voice against the violence
of the oppressed in the ghettoes
without first having spoken clear-
ly to the greatest purveyor of vio-
lence in the world today-our own
government."
King's remarks were in a speech
prepared for delivery in New
York's Riverside Church, at a
meeting sponsored by a year-old
antiwar group, Clergy and Laymen
Concerned About Vietnam.
U.S. Initiative
King called again for the United
States to take the initiative in
ending the war and repeated his
five recommendations, including
a unilateral cease fire, as end to
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
to the bombing, and negotiations
with the National Liberation
Front.
But he also called on "all min-
isters of draft age to give up their
ministerial draft exemptions and
seek status as conscientious ob-

jectors."
The head of the Southern Chris-
tian Leadership Conference re-
peated what he told The Asso-
ciated Press two weeks ago: that
he planned to step up his fight'
against the war because it was
draining the domestic programs
needed to fight poverty and seg-
regation.
Last night, he said the war is
but a symptom of a far deeper
malady within the American
spirit," a focus on "things" instead
of people.
Increasingly, said King, "by
choice or accident," the United
States has taken "the role of those
' who make peaceful revolution im-
possible by refusing to give up,
the privileges and the pleasures
that come from the immense prof-
its of overseas investment."
In Vietnam, he said, the more
sophisticated soldiers, surely real-
ize that we are on the side of the
wealthy and the secure while we
create a hell for the poor" . . . that
"none of the things we claim to
be figthing for 'ate really in-
volved."

GOVERNOR GEORGE ROMNEY met yesterday with leaders of a migrant worker group seeking
higher wages and improved working conditions and educational opportunities for their children.
Romney sympathized but refused to commit himself to any specific program while promising to
seek the appointment of a migrant to the labor department's proposed new commission on migrants.
MONSOON CLEARS:
U.S. Air Activity Increases;
J"Johnson Fears M ilitary Bill

SAIGON (P)-The end of the
Monsoon season will probably
bring more U.S. air action in
North Vietnam, U.S. officers pre-
dict while in Washington President
Johnson worries about having "his
hands tied" in.fighting the war.
Johnson complained yesterday
that Congress was forcing him to
tie his own hands as commander
in chief .when he signed a $12.2-
billion supplemental appropriation
for the Vietnam war.
The presidential p rotest was
over an amendment written into
the money bill that would interfere
with Pentagon plans to cut diown
on Air National Guard and Re-
serve Air Force units.
"While similar restrictions" have
been included in the Defense De-
partment appropriations bill in
recent years," Johnson said, "I am
becoming increasingly concerned
about them because of the un-
desirable rigidity they impose on
our military structure."
The $12.2 billion provided in the
bill is to finance military opera-
tions for the remainder of the
fiscal year which ends June 30.
It boosts military appropriations
for the year to $72.14 billion.
Johnson felt the Senate amend-
ment .would require the Pentagon
to 'maintain at least 25 Air Na-
tional Guard airlift groups and 40
Air Force Reserve airlift and troop
carrier units unnecessarily.
The Senate Appropriations Com-

mittee report on the measure
made it clear that the aim of this
provision is to block plans to de-
activate three Air National Guard
and eight Air Force Reserve air-
lift units.
Johnson said the changes the
bill blocks "involve the modern-
ization of the active Air Force
strategic intertheater airlift capa-
bility- and the re-equipment of
Reserve force elements with newer
aircraft released from the active
forces, the result of which will be
an increased and much more ef-
ficient strategic airlift capability."
In Saigon, U.S. officers hinted
yesterdaw they expect the all-time
high of 175 missions to be ex-
ceeded before the end of April.
U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine
pilots, flying under the best
weather conditions in weeks, ham-
mered North Vietnamese storage
areas, bridges, trucks and cargo
barges in 147 missions Monday.
Presumably more than 400 planes
were involved.
Two instances of alleged confes-
sions by captured American pilots
to bombing civilians in North Viet-
nam have come to light in the
past two days.
An American photographer who
visited North Vietnam writes in'
Life that he heard a "confession"
delivered from behind a closed
curtain in an alert, sincere voice.
He said when the pilot was pro-
duced, however, he appeared to be.

"vacant" and "like a puppet." 4
ABC showed a Vietnamese film
of two Navy pilots who, during the
course of a discussion, "confessed"
to dropping napalm on civilians.
Three lip readers who went over
the film said they were unable to
match the lips of the two pilots to
the dialogue during the allleged
confessions.
In Washington, the Defense De-
partment declined specific com-
ment yesterdaytand reiterated that
U.S. policy is to bomb only mili-
tary targets in North Vietnam.
The spokesmen asserted anew that
some civilian casualties are in-
evitable in war.
The question of treatment of
American captives has been raised
again by the puppet-like behavior
of an American pilot in Hanoi be-
fore a shocked group of foreigners.

As Red Guard rallies continued

he must be overthrown "ideolog-
ically and politically."
But the articles never mention-

NEW YORK - Johnny Carson
announced his resignation from
his Tonight show yesterday, claim-
ing his contract was breached by
NBC's use of re-runs since a strike
of network performers began a
week ago.
However, NBC refused to accept
the resignation, saying it had a
right to substitute his old tapes.
In a statement, the network said
it "looks forward to Johnny's re-
turn to the Tonight program
when the strike is over."
Meanwhile, the striking AFL-
CIO American Federation of Tele-
vision and Radio Artists asked the
multimillion national membership
of the AFL-CIO and independent
unions to boycott the products
of sponsors who advertise on the
struck networks.

WASHINGTON (iP) - Members
expect Sen. Thomas J. Dodd (D-
Conn), to be rebuked in a report
being drafted by the Senate ethics
committee staff for transferring
testimonial dinner and campaign
funds to his personal bank ac-
count.
Dodd acknowledged in the com-
mittee's public hearings which
ended March 17 that $150,785 pro-
duced by a series of fund-raising
events went into his personal ac-
count.
The ethics committee, which de-
cided earlier neither to exonerate
Dodd nor to recommend his expul-
sion from the Senate, has not
agreed yet on the language it will
use in recommending that the sen-
ator be reprimanded.
But a majority obviously is un-
willing to accept Dodd's thesis
that since his first election to the
Senate almost every action he has
taken has been political. The Con-
necticut senator said his con-
science was clear in the use of

what he called "personal-political"
funds.
Chairman John Stennis (D-
Miss), is determined to get action
on a code of ethics covering staff
members. He told the Senate re-
cently the committee's work on
provisions of a code of conduct
had been sidetracked by the Dodd
investigation.
The committee's staff is report-
ed to have drafted some critical
observations on Dodd's trip to
Germany at the expense of the
Internal Security subcommittee at
the time Julius Klein of Chicago,
registered agent for foreign busi-
ness interests, was having some
difficulties with German clients.
The committee chairman indi-
cated that the question of a code
of ethical conduct for senators is
something that will have to be
thrashed out after the Dodd re-
port is made. He said the question
of requiring senators to make pub-
lic their outside incomes, for ex-
ample, is a "very difficult" one
that needs extensive study.
