Gromyko at
White House
President Johnson,
Soviet Minister Talk
In Closed Discussion
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Johnson and Soviet Foreign Min-
ister Andrei A. Gromyko had yes-
terday what the White House de-
scribed as a "frank and wide-
ranging discussion in a business-
like atmosphere."
The two, meeting at the White
House for an hour and 45 minutes,
discussed a number of subjects of
*R mutual concern, White House aide
George Christian told reporters.
Gromyko came and went from
the White House through a back
door so that the crowd of waiting
reporters were not able to see him.
Improve Relations
The meeting was expected to in-
Selude discussion of Johnson's pro-
posals for improving elations .be-
tween the United States and the
Soviet Union and to get Moscow's
reactions to the proposals John-
son made Friday in a New York
Christian said he could not list
the subjects the two men discuss
Before Gromyko left, Johnson
invited Democratic congressional
leaders to meet brietly with the
foreign minister, Christian said.
Shook Hands Only
Christian said, in response to
questions, that the legislators real-
ly only shook hands with the for-
eign minister without engaging in
discussions with him.
They were waiting for a sched-
uled meeting with the President.
Gromyko left the White House
R for the State Department.
Gromyko carefully avoided ma-
king a side trip to Washington last
year when he attended the United
Nations General Assembly in New
York, as if underlining differences
between the two countries over
Vietnam. He is reported to have
-agreed immediately to come and
see the President this year.
Meets Rusks
In addition to the President and
the Soviet foreign minister, Secre-
tary of State Dean Rusk, Ambas-
sador-at-Large Llewelyn Thomp-
son, presidential advisor Walt W.
Rostow, and Soviet Ambassador
Anatole Y. Dobrynin participated
in the conference.
Thompson, the administration's
No. 1 Soviet expert, was recently
appointed the new U.S. ambassa-
dor to Moscow.
Although A m e r i c a n officials
cautioned against attaching too
much importance to Gromyko's
change of attitude, they appeared
to agree that some guarded op-
timism concerning Moscow's in-
terest in the Johnson proposals
was justified.
*I Proliferation Issue
Moreover, some officials pre-
dicted that Monday's meeting
could bring two specific issues
closer to an agreement: one is a
treaty to prevent the spread of
nuclear weapons, the other an
agreement guaranteeing that the
moon and other celestial bodies be
used for peaceful purposes only.
There was, on the other hand,
little hope that the meeting would
change the Soviet position on
Yet Vietnam obviously 'was a
big issue Johnson wanted to dis-
cuss, urging Gromyko that his
country stop watching the war
from the sidelines and exert its
undeniable influence on Hanoi to
sit down and negotiate.

There was, American officials
believe, a slight change in the
Soviet position in this regret. Ear-
lier, Moscow insisted that the
United States must get out from
Vietnam as a precondition of a
negotiated settlement.
Recent comments in Moscow's
government-controlled press indi-
cated that the Soviets would be
satisfied if the United States
stopped the bombing.
Beyond the Vietnam issue there
were signs of renewed Soviet in-
terest in talking about other prob-

Civil Rights Moderates Meet
To Exorcise Black Poluwer

NEW YORK ((P)) - Negro

the civil rights movement say they

"Black power is a menace to

Negro who is fighting for civil

of the National Association for the

"What we have in mind," said
Dr. John Morsell, assistant nation-

"The NAACP will work with oth-

NEW YORK ((D))-Rep. Adam
Clayton Powell's three-year legal
battle to avoid paying a $160,000
libel judgment led to his convic-
tion yesterday of willful contempt
of court.
An all-white jury found the Ne-
gro congressman from Harlem
guilty of illegally evading five se-
parate court orders in the pro-
tracted libel action.
Powell, a Democrat, laid the
groundwork for an appeal of the
verdict in advance when he and
his lawyers boycotted the trial,
claiming the State Supreme
Court lacked jurisdiction in the

the jury's verdict is 30 days in

Powell owes $160,000 in libel
damages to a Harlem widow, Es-
ther James, 68, as a result of a
jury's 1963 decision that he libeled

Since the original libel verdict,
the case has been in eight differ-
ent courts, and more than 70 judg-

ous times.
During the legal proceedings,
Powell five times ignored court
subpoenas for his appearance to
undergo financial examination -
once in 1963, twice in 1964 and
twice last year. Powell claimed
that as a congressman he was im-
mune to the subpoena.
Last Aug. 12, State Supreme
Court Justice Ilrving Saypol cited
Powell for criminal contempt. He
directed that a jury trial be held
to determine the extent of Pow-
ell's "willfulness" in ignoring the
