President Briefs Senators

WASHINGTON (P) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson gave senators
what one of them described as
a "frank and candid" briefing on
Viet Nam yesterday, and the chief
executive told reporters later:
"We're there to stay."
After meeting an hour and 45
minutes with about 40 senators at
the White House, Johnson told
newsmen he sees no substantial
division in the nation or Congress
over his Viet Nam policies.
House members will attend a
similar briefing this week, and on
Aug. 17, Johnson disclosed, he will
meet with representatives of busi-
ness, labor and the professions for
another exchange of views.
"We're there to stay," Johnson
said at an afternoon press brief-
ing. "We're going to do what we
need to do to, resist aggression.
When aggression ceases, resist-
ance ceases."
While Johnson spoke at the
White House, scores of demon-
strators against United States
policy in Viet Nam were being
arrested outside the capitol.
The senators heard from, and
then fired questions at Johnson
and his top advisers, including
Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, retiring
U.S. ambassador to South Viet
Sen. John Sherman Cooper (R-
Ky) described the briefing as
"frank and candid."
Sen. Jacob K. Javits (R-NY)
called it "the best and most ef-
fective briefing we've had at the
White House since I have been
going there."
But Javits asked whether such
a briefing takes the place of the
debate he has sought on Viet
Nam, said "I don't think it's the
same thing at all. . . . I feel it

The Council acted on several
related issues last night at its
regular session.
Mayor Wendell Hulcher gave
formal commendation to the com-
mittee for its work, Communica-

While the council was slated
to act on an amendment adding
the 180-foot ceiling for high-rise
buildings to current statutes, the

Significant of Council's interest
in informing developers of its in-
tentions was a motion passed au-
thorizing the city administrator to
consult with developers of a high
rise at Maynard and East Wil-
liam Streets. The administrator
was authorized to act in respect to
current ordinances and the un-
official information given in the
report. This would include the sub-
ject of the amendment left un-
considered by Council.
The Council acted out of 'fear
that the Maynard-East William
development might not provide
sufficient parking space when
completed. No construction has
been begun on the building.
Consider Amendment

Council can consider the amend-
ment for second ,reading and ap-
proval at will. It awaits further
comment from the City Planning
The comments made by develop-
ers have in general expressed fear
that their investments will be
lost as hasty and superficial legis-
lation is created. One developer
felt that by passing this legisla-
tion, the Ann Arbor City Council
would encourage "prairie dog and
pigeon roost architecture."

PRESIDENT LYNDON B. JOHNSON briefed senators yesterday
on the scope and direction of the War in Viet Nam at the White
House. Most senators were satisfied with the briefing and in-
dicated support of Johnson's policies.

Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont);
majority leader, said the meeting
showed no indication of any shift
in Viet Nam strategy. He said
Johnson answered questions "with
vigor and candor."
Describing the briefing, John-
son said Secretary of Defense
Robert S. McNamara reviewed the
military situation in Viet Nam,
what the men there are doing,
what the plans are, and what the
conditions are as he sees them
Secretary of State Dean Rusk,
Johnson said, went over the po-
litical situation and efforts in the
past and effort now in line with
the presidential offer to engage in
unconditional discussions in the
search for peace.
Johnson said Arthur Goldberg,
U.S. ambassador to the United
Nations, reviewed conversations
with UN Secretary General U
Thant and representatives of
many countries, plus letters ex-
changel by the President and U
Thant on trying to bring peace
in Viet Nam.
The President - said "I would
w a r n any would-be, hopeful
enemy of the United States not
to believe this nation is divided."
Sen. Karl E. Mundt (R-SD)
said the briefing covered a wide
front, but "I heard nothing new
or startling." But Sen. D. J.
Inouye (D-Hawaii) termed the
session "the most encouraging two
hours I have spent at any White
House briefing."
This was an obvious reference to
demonstrations staged the last few
days outside the White House.
"If the people of the United
States could have been sitting in
the room," Inouye said, "I am con-
vinced there would be very few

picketings and demonstrations on
this matter."

of senators received during a 90-
minute session at the White

Organization of American States
(OAS) yesterday appealed to the
contending factions in the Domin-
ican crisis to agree on a provi-
sionalgovernment, but the peace
formula quickly ran into opposi-
tion from both sides.
The OAS proposal-calling for
a provisional government headed
by lawyer-diplomat Hector Garcia
Godoy, with elections to follow
within nine months-was objected
to by the rebel constitutionalists,
who had been expected to endorse
Col. Francisco Caamano, who
heads the rebel group, told a news
conference the proposal was a
"surprise" and that many of the
features had not been discussed
between the OAS committee and
the rebels. He promised to outline
the objectionable features to
rewsmen today.I
The civilian military junta
made no immediate comment, but
some of its members privately said
the proposal wasanotnacceptable
because its form amounted to ani
Earlier, United States Ambas-
sador Ellsworth Bunker told news-
men he foresaw a quick accept-
ance of the reconciliation formula.
He termed the proposal "equitable,
fair and reasonable.".1
It was also learned from reliable
sources that the OAS committee
had suggested to both sides that
an answer on the formula by
Wednesday would be welcome. I
The OAS document, called "the
act of national reconciliation," was
presented to the factions yester-
day morning by the OAS negotiat-
ing committee and also was dis-
tributed throughout the country
by truck and planes.
Some members of the civilian
military junta privately expressed
criticism of the document which
provides for a general amnesty
and the return of rebel officers to
the armed forces. They saidt
Dominicans should be given an
opportunity to settle their own
affairs without foreign pressure.
Garcia Godoy, who would pre-
side over the provisional regime,
said he expected the formation of
the government to be announced
probably late this week.'
He told reporters two or threeI
years would be better to prepare
the country for elections, but the
population is impatient.
"In any event," he added, "I
don't intend to stay on one day
longer than nine months."r
Garcia Godoy said his govern-
ment would include nine ministers.
He declined to disclose any names
but said it was not yet certain
whether the cabinet would include
a military man.
The OAS team, declaring the
Dominican Republic is "on the
point of ruin" after more than
three months of internal strife,
proposed that there be no further
payment of salaries to military
men or outside economic aid until

SINGAPORE W)-Premier Lee'
Kuan Yew charted a neutral
course yesterday for newly inde-
pendent Singapore and said he
hoped for diplomatic relations
and trade with Indonesia and
trade with China.
His statement brought an angry
blast from Prime Minister Tunku
Abdul Rahman in Kuala Lumpur,
capital of the Federation of Ma-
laysia. Warning against diplomat-
ic relations with Indonesia, -which
has sworn to crush Malaysia, Rah-
man told a news conference:
"If they do that, the obvious
intention is to harm our inter-
ests. We can't allow that to hap-
pen. We would take action."

To Still Be
High Dorm Fees,
Broken Contracts
Lower Fall Demand
Estimates of overcrowding in
University residence halls have
been lowered because of with-
drawn and terminated contracts
for the fall, Eugene Haun, Direc-
tor of Residence Housing said
Steps were taken this 'semester
by a committee of residence hall
administrators to prepare for pos-
sible overcrowding. Furniture was
purchased and installed for 306
students. Every student who sign-
ed a residence hall contract was
planned to be assured of a per-
manent space. That expectatior
has been realized.
Haun said that the residence
hall system is prepared to house
students who planned on movin
into new structures that are no
completed by their expected fa
Last fall, 460 students could not
be accommodated when the3

Single Accommodations
Haun said that the figure o1
306 came from single accommoda-
tions converted to doubles and
doubles, to triples. His committee
planned the installation in ac-
cordance with state and local
housing regulations.
A figure of near 800 extra stu-
dents was expected, but was not
realized. Many students that an-
ticipated living 'in University
housing withdrew their applica-
tions at the increase in room fees
Haun expected further decreases
in the figure from additiona
withdrawals and freshmen not en-
tering the University as expected.
He spoke of a need for adapt-
ability in the housing system so
that it can accommodate stu-
dents in emergency situations, ar-
riving on campus without housing,
and in other ways without room-

dents are to be housed in usual

will be able to find work in the
residence halls, though it is not
expected that the number of em-
ployes will be greatly increased.
The increase in students was
forseen at least seven years ago,
when Bursley Hall, a proposed co-
ed dormitory was completely plan-
ned. Due to a state fiscal crisis,
no funds were available for con-
struction, and the work was not
New Structures
Two new structures for upper-
class and graduate student hous-
ing, Cedar Bend I & II will be
completed by August, 1966. In
addition, Bursley Hall, now under
construction, will be completed
some time thereafter.
Overcrowding is a common prob-
lem in American universities, Mr.
Haun stated. While the Univer-,
sity was forced to provide several
hundred temporary spaces last
fall, Michigan State was over-
crowded by nearly one thousand
students. Other school facilities
are overworked to as great an
extent as residence halls ,but they
serve a vital function in provid-
ing living, study and entertain-
ment space at a student's most
critical stage, he concluded.

ATHENS (AP) -- King Constan-

monarch once again with the
prospect of returning George
Papandreou to power or calling

The deputies of Papandreou's
Center Union Party stood behind
him and refused to let the party's
deputy leader, Stephanos Stephan-
opoulos, try to foim a new gov-
ernment. Stephanopoulos, given a
mandate by the king last night,
said he would give it back to Con-

out of 50 governorships. At this

debate the deputies voted 116 to
26 to support Papandreou's de-
mands and to deny permission for
Stephanopoulos, or any other
party leader, to become premier.
Because Papandreou had agreed
to the caucus and urged his fol-
lowers not to demonstrate, it ap-
peared he might be relenting to-
ward the king. But once the cau-
cus got under way it became clear
Papandreou had maneuvered to
show the king that the Center
Union Party was remaining united
and that Stephanopoulos was not
available for the king's mandate.
Stephanopoulos told the caucus,
according to party officials, that
he had "no ambition to become
premier" and that he did not
thank the king for the mandate
because he felt the king "knew
that a government could not be
formed without the Center Union
Party." This was implied support
for Papandreou.

Officials said Papandreou told
the caucus the king was abusing
his right to name premiers, and
that he should call on party lead-
ers, who "are chosen by the

He implied that the king, instead
of bowing to Papandreou or call-

Stephanopoulos told n e w s m e n,
planned to "revert to a third,
