Johnson Discusses
Policy Problems
WASHINGTON (P)-President Lyndon B. Johnson held his first
news conference yesterday since the end of April and announced
that 2000 Marines were being withdrawn from the Dominican
Republic, and a message was being sent to Congress asking for $89
million in economic aid to Southeast Asia.
He also announced plans to address the UN General Assembly
at a commemorative session in San Francisco the last week in
After a flare-up of fighting in which Communist forces dealt
heavy losses to the South Vietnamese, in the war there, Johnson

PARIS (P)-The United States,
has proposed that a committee of
four or five NATO members be
set up to study nuclear policy and
procedures for the Atlantic alli-
ance to give America's allies a
bigger voice in nuclear decisions.
Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc-
Namara advanced the proposal to
j a session of the defense ministers
of NATO. It apparently was a new
U.S. effort to meet demands of
France and other NATO partners
for a voice in the life-and-death
decisions which might face the
West in a future crisis.
Should Meet
McNamara said the committee
should meet as promptly and fre-
quently as necessary to study:

preme Court ruled yesterday on
legislative reapportionment dis-
putes in New York, Illinois, Cali-
fornia and Idaho involving widely
different aspects of its "one-man,

The court, preparing to start its
summer recess after next Mon-
day's decision day, cleared up
without hearing arguments all of
its pending reapportionment cases
-Refusing 8 to 1 to hold up a
special election in New York state
next Nov. 2. A federal district
court ordered the election over ob-
jections by the state Supreme
Court that 15 more legislators
would be elected than the 150 the
state consitution prescribes;
The dissenter, Justice John M.
Harlan, wanted to grant a quick
high court hearing on the issue,
declaring "I am wholly at a loss
to understand the court's casual
way of disposing of this matter
and I can find no considerations
of any kind which justifies it;"
-Ruling 8 to 0 that the federal
court in Illinois step aside for a
reasonable time but keep watch
to give the state agencies a chance
to redistrict the Illinois state Sen-
ate on a population basis;
-Upholding unanimously-but
three justices "reluctantly" - a
federal court order that California
must reapportion its Senate by
July 1 on a population basis even
though the state's voters three
times have rejected efforts to
change the present alignment;
-Unanimously refusing to in-
tervene in a suit by two Idaho cit-
izens challenging the fairness of
the state's new legislative reappor-
tionment law passed on March 25.
In the civil rights field, the
court acted on major appeals by:
-Agreeing to review at its next
term the dismissal of federal con-
spiracy indictments against six

strategic and tactical nuclear
-Methods for quick consulta-
tion among NATO members on
any decision to use nuclear forces.
This could include "hot lines" be-
tween NATO capitals.
McNamara said the U.S. wants
to join other NATO nations in
working-outemeasures to provide
greater "nuclear participation" for
members so desiring.
He said this would be in addi-
tion to anything the alliance might
do about the controversial pro-
posals for a Multilateral Nuclear
Force (MLF) or an Atlantic Nu-
clear Force (ANF). Both projects

However, Groening considers

He indicated that "We might

"The Communists," he said, "did
not in our judgment originate this
revolution. But they joined it and
they participated in it. They were
active in it, and in a good many
places they were in charge of it."
Johnson Doctrine?
At that point he was asked
whether he had in mind enunciat-
ing "a new Johnson doctrine un-
der which American troops would
be used to prevent the establish-
ment of a Communist government
anywhere in the Western hemis-
"No," the President said. "I am
afraid that the people that have
branded the Johnson doctrine
were unfamiliar with the fact that
the nations of this hemisphere
have repeatedly made it clear that
the principles of Communism are
incompatible with the principles
of the inter-American system, just
as President Kennedy made it
abundantly clear. That is the
basis of our own attitude on the
matter. I am sorry I got some
folks excited by it."

This is because, regardless of
whether the 'U.S. was right in en-

policy - such as the withdrawal
recommended by many adminis-

of U.S. promises and commitments
to the Vietnamese and would have
disastrous effects on the security}
of many countries, including the
U.S., Humphrey said.
A withdrawal "would only weak-j

for all of Southeast Asia."
Referring to the 1930's, Hum-
phrey said that the two para-
mount lessions of the era were
-"You can never appease an
aggressor. Hitler taught us this.
-"Racism is a consumate evil.
The war taught us this also."
Non-Communist nations are
threatened more every year by "a
new sophisticated form of war-
fare" that is becoming a major
challenge to U.S. security, Hum-{
