U.S. to stand firm in war
THE MICHIGAN DAILY
i, V - ..
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Johnson said yesterday that while
America still hopes for peace
through the Paris negotiations,
"We shall not be defeated on the
battlefield while the talks go on."
The President's public notice to
Hanoi, in brief remarks honoring
the heroes of Khe Sanh, came as
U.S. and . North Vietnamese en-
voys at the French capital headed
into their third week of discus-
sions in apparent deadlock.
In a speech asking a Senate ap-
propriations subcommittee for
nearly $80 billion for U.S. armed
services next year, Secretary of
Defense Clark M. Clifford warned
the American people to be pre-
pared for a period of hard fight-!
ing while talking.
Clifford said North Vietnam's
infiltrating men and supplies into
the South instead of cutting back
in response to Johnson's March 31
bombing curtailment required
"more hard fighting".
He added: "These develop-
ments, while disappointing, should
not be surprising. The North Viet-
namese have consistently stated
their intention was to fight and
negotiate, and we must be pre-
pared, both physically and psy-
chologically, to do the same."
Johnson spoke at a White
House ceremony honoring the
26th Marine Regiment. These 3rd

earlier this year.
The President said the GIs at
Khe Sanh greatly strengthened
the U.S. initiative toward talks
with North Vietnam. "They viv-
idly demonstrated to the enemy
the utter futility of his attempts
to win a military victory in the
South," Johnson said.
"Allofdus in America hope that
the road to peace will lead
through the talks in Paris," John-
son continued, "but it is still not
clear that Hanoi is ready for an
early or an honorable peace."
Johnson said the flow of infil-
trators and of equipment from
North Vietnam "has never been
greater than it is now. There is
still very bitter fighting in many
areas of South Vietnam."
However, he said, "For our part
we shall seriously and soberly
pursue negotiations toward an
honorable and peaceful settlement
of the war.
"We have faith that an hon-
orable peace can be achieved in
Vietnam," Johnson concluded.
"But if there must be more fight-
ing before it comes, then we shall
not be found wanting."
A statement generally support-
ing the administration's position
was issued by a 14 man panel of
The group voiced fear that
many Americans have been mis-
led into expecting "too much, too
soon" from the Paris meetings.

gotiations required to end the
Korean war, the citizens panel

Congressional battle expected
over final terms of crime bill
WASHINGTON( A1) - The Senate voted 44 to 37 yester-
day to retain in the pending anti-crime bill a provision au-
thorizing emergency wiretaps up to 48 hours without a court
order. Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-Mich.), who moved to strike
the authorization, said it would "tempt even the most disci-
plined of policemen to do a little tapping no one may ever
But Sen. John L. McClellan (D-Ark.), floor manager for
the far-reaching crime legislation, said the amendment would
"weaken the. opportunity to get the most effective results
possible" from provisions to allow wiretapping in the investi-
gation or prevention of major crimes.
A Senate-House battle over final terms of the bill ap-
peared to be brewing, with Rep. Emanuel Celler (D-N.Y.),
saying he would never accept Senate passed provisions which
would weaken Supreme Court restrictions on use as evidence
of some confessions and police line-up identifications.
Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois
predicted the disputed provisions will be retained. Dirksen,
like Celler, is a potentials- -
member of the Senate-House #
committee to write final
terms of the bill, and he notedi ar L a
that Celler will be only one
member of the group. Failure a

pending bill specifies restrictions
