De Gaulle
U.S. in Asia
State Department Cool
To French President's
Remarks on Viet Nam
PARIS (A')-President Charles
de Gaulle insisted yesterday that
the United States should get out
of Viet Nam. He said the war can-
not be won militarily and can only
lead to heavier expen and moun-
ting criticism.
Meanwhile, State Department
officials reacted i c i1 y to De
Gaulle's advice. Officials said that
De Gaulle's remarks represent "no
substantial change of his previ-
ously expressed position."
Spirit of Friendship
The French president, 75, said
he was giving his advice in the
spirit of friendship. But he said
he found it "absolutely detestable
for a little people to be bombaded
by a very great nation." He de-
clared it is up to the United States
to make the first moves for bring-
ing an end to "this deadly enter-
Further, he declared, the United
4 States must recognize that no
treaty and no settlement can be
valid in Asia without the parti-
cipation of Communist China.
He said the United States must
fully understand this implies
diplomatic recognition of Red
China and her admission to the
United Nations.
End Fighting Quickly
He said it would be to the ad-
vantage of the United. States to
end the fighting as quickly as
possible, even if it did not result
in the political situation they
hoped for.
De Gaulle spoke with supreme
confidence as he addressed about
800 reporters in an ornate recep-
tion room at the Elysee Palace in
his semi-annaual news conference.
He upheld the rightness of
French foreign policy. He lauded
French independence - independ-
ence principally from American
domination-which is the -corner-
stone of his actions.
Opinion Known
What De Gaulle thinks about
the Viet Nam war and what he
thinks the United States should do
there have been known since early
September when the French head
of state, together with Cambodia's
Prince Norodom Sihanouk, sug-
gested that this country proclaim
a "schedule" of its withdrawal
from Viet Nam.
The United States and its allies
feel they complied with this re-
quest at the recent Manila seven-
power conference when they re-
solved that all their troops would
leave Viet Nam within six months
after North Viet Nam stopped ag-
gression. Withdrawing without
that, or complying with De Gaul-
le's advice to let the Vietnamese
"settle their own manner and by
their own means," would be tant-
amount to yielding to Communist
aggression, A m e r i c a n officials
Chides West Germany
In addition, De Gaulle chided
West Germany for being more
friendly to the United States than
to France. He cautioned French
voters they had better give his
supporters a majority in next
spri g's legislative elections or risk
seeing the country slip back into
His chiding of West Germany

Erhard maintained only a shaky

grip on the Bonn government.
Four cabinet ministers of the Free
Democratic party quit Thursday
in a budget row and some mem-
bersof Erhard's Christian Demo-
cratic party are eager to see him
replaced by someone more friendly
to De Gaulle.
Patriarchal Advice
De Gaulle seemed yesterday to
be giving his patriarchal advice7
mainly to Americans. Calling outt
the list of the most prickly dis-I
putes between France and the
United States, he said:t
"It seems that what we are un-
dertaking, and the attitudes that
we are taking, are finally useful
for everyone; and especially our
American friends. What we areI
saying and doing for Viet Nam,
or for NATO, or for the monetary
system, I very sincerely think it
would bet to their advantage to4
want it, and to do it themselves.",
De Gaulle appeared in excellent
health. His hour and a half of al-t
most uninterrupted monologue;
was fully the equal of past per-
formances on these occasions.
Ignores Question
Questions from the floor were
grouped into general subjects for
his discourse. He ignored a ques-t
tion about the possibility of a
meeting with President Johnson.I
He proudly declared that "in
five months, no headquarters, noI
unit, no base of any allied armyf
will remain on our territory."

French President Charles de Gaulle is seen during one of his rare press conferences yesterday at
the Eylesee Palace in Paris. Some main topics of the session revolved around the American com-
mitments in Southeast Asia, and German relations in Europe. In some flag waving, he lauded his
own country's independence, and told Frenchmen they never had it so good.

report said.

SAIGON, South Viet Nam (P)-
An earthshaking explosion ripped
up an ammunition dump yester-
day night in a supply area for two
U.S. infantry divisions.
First reports said two American
soldiers were killed and 10 in-
The blast blackened a surround-
ing jungle and broke windows in
Saigon, 12 miles away. U.S. au-
thorities on the scene said they
expected a heavier casualty toll.
,Large numbers of American troops
are stationed in the area, just off
the main highway from Saigon
to Cap St. Jacques. There also is
a large American hospital there.
U.S. troops had just finished a
hunt-and-kill mission against Viet
Cong guerrillas in the area. The
explosion, at 9 p.m., sent a huge
orange ball rolling into the night
sky. In Saigon it looked like sun-
It came after South Vietnamese
officials reported sharp battle ac-
tion between Viet Cong fighters
and government forces in the
Mekong delta, south of the capital.
Viet Cong terror squads also were
active there.
American ground, action cbn-
tinued in a lull. The U.S. Com-
mand reported American planes
flew 95 bombing missions over
North Viet Nam, about 30 or so
below the normal daily average.
B-52 bombers from Guam hit at
Viet Cong troops and camps in
two places.
On the Political Scene
The crisis in Premier Nguyen
Cao Ky's military government ap-
peared resolved.
Informants said the crisis in
Ky's regime seemed over. They
said Ky replaced two dissident
ministers and talked five others'
out of quitting their jobs.
The seven ministers resigned
last week, charging that Ky's gov-
ernment was dominated by offi-l
cials who came from North Viet
Nam when the North and South
were partioned in 1954. They also
complained that Brig. Gen. Ngu-
yen Ngoc Loan, national security
chief, was ruthless in carrying out
his duty.

The informants said Ky named
Thai Ton, to be the economic
minister, replacing Au Truong
his financial adviser, Truong
Thang. He also replaced Youth
Minister Vo Long Trieu by naming

The U.S. Command said enemy

411th American plane reported
lost over the North in the war.
The pilot is listed as missing.

NEW YORK (P)-"Black power"
leader Stokely Carmichael, called
for draft re-examination, said yes-
terday if he is classified 1-A, "I'm
not going to go."
Carmichael, just before leaving
by plane for San Francisco for a
meeting, said when asked on what
grounds he would refuse military
service: "I don't care which it is.
I'll go to Leavenworth."
Carmichael has been undergoing
consultations with draft officials,
which were completed yesterday.
Higher Law
Carmichael, chairman of the
Student Non-Violent Coordinating
Committee and the leading advo-
cate of black power, cited the
Nuremberg war crimes trials after
World War II and said there is
a higher law than the law of the
U.S. government.

Congress Increases Budget,
While Claiming Economy'

WASHINGTON (A)-The 1966'
Congress gave a good demonstra-
tion of how to appear to cut fed-
eral spending while actually in-
creasing it, budget experts said
Many economy speeches were
hearlI in the Senate and House
during the session, and Congress
claimed after adjournment last
Saturday that it had cut President
Johnson's budget request by $883
Technically Correct
This was technically correct, if
only action on the 15 appropria-
tions bills passed during the year
was considered.
But as administration budget
officials point out, and congres-
sional experts agree, the legis-
lators took many other actions
which will have an upward im-
pact on spending this fiscal year.
The Budget Bureau's tentative
estimate so far is that these could
force an increase of $2.5 billion or
more in Johnson's planned spend-
ing program for fiscal 1967 which
began July 1.
Senate Republican leader Ev-

erett M. Dirksen of Illinois, re-
porting to his colleagues on a
White House session early this
month, said: "You 'should have
heard him on the budget. He ful-
minated like Hurricane Inez.
Dirksen on this occasion led a
successful fight to slash $750 mil-
lion which Johnson had not re-
quested from the antipoverty bill.
Many legislators assert that
some cutbacks asked by Johnson
were proposed so that Congress
could be blamed for exceeding his
Sharp Reductions
For example, he recommended
sharp reductions in direct govern-
ment loans for needy college stu-
dents and in funds granted to im-
pacted areas where schools are
crowded because of the children
of federal personnel.
Congress rejected these cutbacks
with the result that this money
bill exceeded the budget by about
$400 million.
It refused also to go along with
reductions Johnson proposed in
such popular programs as school
lunches, school milk and aid to
land grant colleges.

Malaysians Demonstrate
As Thailand welcomed the Pres-
ident, demonstrations erupted in
Malaysia against Johnson's visit
there tomorrow. Students at the
University of Malaya in Kuala
Lumpur, burned an effigy of the
President after putting a big sign
outside the campus saying "Come
and watch the burning of Presi-
dent Johnson."
As night fell in the Malaysian
capital, 50 Chinese marched on a
hotel used by U.S. troops resting
from the war in Viet Nam and
bombarded it with slingshots,
bricks and stones. No Americans
were injured.
As police strove to head off de-
monstrations when Johnson ar-
rives Sunday, the government
radio called on, the people for
"something extra, something spe-
cial in our welcome to show our
appreciation of the sacrifices
which so many young Americans
have made in Asia."
Johnson expressed belief that
some day even Communist China
and North Viet Nam "will join our
Pacific brotherhood-in peace. We
look forward to that day."
Ignores Missile Test
He ignored publicly Peking's
announcemnet of Red China's
first test of a missile withisnu-
clear warhead. Sources with the
presidential party declined com-
ment on the Chinese announce-
ment pending further intelligence
on what happened.
At a glittering banquet with the
king and Queen Sirikit as hosts,
the President spoke of the right
of every people to determine their
own destiny. Thailand and the
United States are allies in helping
South Viet Nam, he declared.
Long Time Ally

ally and at present is the basefor

FTC 'To Investigate Effect
Of Chance Games on Prices

eral Trade Commission has start-
ed an investigation of promotional
"games of chance" in the retail
food industry to determine wheth-
er they raise prices and impair
Legality Questioned
The commission, in announcing
this last night, said it is inquir-
ing into the legality and competi-
tive effects of "so-called 'sweep-
stakes' and other games of
The FTC called on retailers to
discontinue voluntarily any pro-
motional practices that are unfair
or increase prices to the house-
The commission said it is par-
ticularly concerned that these
promotional schemes, now exten-
sively used by retailers throughout
the country, may have increased
the retail price of food and have
had the effect of substantially cur-
tailing price competition.
Objectives of the investigation,
which the commission described as
intensive, were described as:
p Todetermine whether these
promotional schemes constitute
unfair and deceptive practices in
violation of laws administered by
the commission.
* To determine their economic
consequences, including increased
costs to food retailers and higher
prices to consumers, and their
impact on competition in food

* To provide a factual basis up-
on which the commission may
take such effective corrective ac-
tion as may be required to enforce
the law.
Guidelines Needed
While the commission's action
was unanimous, one of its five
members, A. Everette Maclntyre,
said he is disappointed that the
commission "has not acted other-
wise to provide the food retailing
industry promptly with guidelines
so that it may be better informed
regarding the commission's views
about what may or may not vio-
late the Federal Trade Commis-
sion Act."

Want "emonstration
A report from Yugoslavia's Tan-
jug news agency in Belgrade said
Peking's millions greeted the an-
nouncement of the nuclear tri-
umph with giant demonstrations,
beating drums, and by displaying
portraits of Mao.
The first Chinese nuclear mis-
sile showed China has advanced
more quickly in nuclear weapons

Asked if he believed his law was
higher, Carmichael replied: "Cer-
tainly it is."
Carmichael said he expects to
hear in about five days whether
he will be reclassified, snd did not
want to make known details of
his plans until his Selective Serv-
ice board issued its statement.
Public Protest
A Selective Service official dis-
closed that the draft exemptions
of both Carmichael and actor
George Hamilton were being re-
assessed by local boards because
of mounting public protest.
Hamilton is due for a physical
examination Nov. 7.
"Yes, this definitely was the re-
sult i of public protests," said a
high official of the New York
headquarters of the Selective
Service. He asked that his name
not be used.
In Washingtin, the Selective
Service said that in recent months
more letters have been received
regarding Hamilton's draft status
than regarding anyone else. After
that, most protests are about

as 1-A, and less frequently about
He is currently classified as 1-Y
by his local board because in the
past he has failed to meet current
standards for induction.'
Routine Examination
A spokesman for the New York
Headquarters~ of the Selective
Service said Carmichael has been
called up for re-examination sev-
eral times-a routine practice for
men in his category. The most
recent re-examination, he said
was 9 to 12 months ago.
