Thant made the pledge in an ac-
ceptance speech that followed his
election by secret ballot in the
General Assembly for a new term
to expire on Dec. 31, 1971.
The vote was 120 to 0 in the
121-nation assembly with one bal-
lot declared invalid.
Yields to Pressure
The 57-year-old Burmese dip-
lomat bowed to pressures from all
the major powers and virtually tne
r entire U.N. membership in accept-
ing another term. He made known
11 months ago that he was con-
sidering stepping down after his
first term expired Nov. 3.
The outcome was particularly
gratifying to U.S. Ambassador
Arthur J. Goldberg, who played
a leading role in the efforts to
persuade Thant to remain. He is-
sued a statement saying the United
States was "highly pleased" by the
council action. President Johnson
was among world leaders who
asked Thant to take a new term.
The council declared on its be-
half that it fully respected Thant's'
position on _world problems and
basic U.N. issues as mentioned by
him in his Sept. 1 statement.
A communique issued by the
council shed light on some of the
reasons for Thant's change of
Thant noted "with particular
appreciation that, for its part, the
Security Council respects his posi-
tion and his action in bringing to
the notice of the organization basic
issues confronting it, and disturb-
ing developments in many parts
of the world."
In the opinion of many U.N. dip-
lomats this strengthened the arm
of Thant in seeking a solution to
the present crisis in Viet Nam and
the growing threat to peace in the

At the same time, Johnson said

day that Secretary of State Dean
Rusk will go along as well as Sol

Organization of American States.
No matters of momentous im-
port are expected to come up. In
fact, little time for formal talks is
likely to be available.
Asked for the assessment of the
economy for 1967-whether pros-
perity would continue, what
chances there might be for a slow-
down or recession-Ackley anwer-
ed: "Of course prosperity will con-
tinue. We will have an expanding
Sees No Recession
"I certainly see no reasonable
prospect of a recession.
"We are also looking forward
to increasing price stability.
"We don't expect a repetition
of the large increase in farm and
food prices we had this year."
The economy, he said, should
be on a moderate course that will
sustain jobs and incomes and pro-
duce a moderate growth that will
not bring on bottlenecks.
One item of presidential busi-
ness yesterday was the 'elease of
a report from a commission John-
son appointed last year to study
the patent system and recommend
ways of improving it.
The commission came through
with wide-ranging suggestions for
changes, including some Cimed at
reducing the cost of patent litiga-
tion and at establishing "a uni-
versal patent, respected through-
out the world."
The cochairmen were Dr. Harry
Hunt Ransom, chancellor of the
University of Texas, and Judge
Simon Rifkind of New York.
Meanwhile, in Washington the
Labor Department reported yes-
terday that more Americans held
jobs last month than in any No-
vember in history.
Total employment climbed to 75
million while the nation's jobless
rate edged back to a 13-year low
of 3.7 per cent, the Bureau of
Labor Statistics said. Assistant
commissioner, Harold Goldstein,
of the Bureau of Labor Statistics
said before the White House state-
ment that the November job fig-
ures indicated renewed pressures
on the nation's tight labor supply.
