By The Associated Press
Richard M. Nixon, saying the
United States has become a "law-
less society," has endorsed legis-
-lative proposals that would au-
thorize some forms of wiretapping
in major crime and national sec-
urity cases.
The former vice president
charged the Johnson administra-
tion had been "lame and ineffec-
tual" in dealing with "a stagger-
ing 88 per cent" rise in crime
over the past seven years.
Nixon, a candidate for the Re-
publican presidential nomination,
also charged that the Supreme
Court is "seriously hamstringing
the peace forces in our society and
strengthening the criminal forces."
He said in a 6,000-word state-
ment issued by his New York of-
fice that "If the present rate of
new crime continues, the number
of rapes and robberies and assaults
and thefts in the United States
today will double by the end
of 1972.
"This is a prospect America can-
not accept. If we allow it to hap-
pen then the city jungle will cease
to be a metaphor . . . This nation
will then be what it is fast be-
coming-an armed camp of 200
million Americans living in fear."
Nixon said his remarks were not
meant to apply to city riots which
he termed a "special problem."
He said poverty played a heavy
role in causing crime but that its
importance had been "grossly ex-
aggerated" by the Johnson admin-
He said doubling the conviction
rate-now roughly one conviction
for eight arrests-"would do more
to eliminate crime in the future

Rocky's veterans
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller called
yesterday for a comprehensive
"post-Vietnam plan" to provide
employment and education for
veterans returning from the war
in the Far East.
In a speech prepared for de-
livery at Kansas State University
and later at Kansas University at
Lawrence, Rdckefeller said:
"I propose that a national post-
Vietnam planning committee be
established now. Such a com-
,prehensive planning effort be-
tween government, business and
labor is essential to assure the
creation of the eight million new
jobs that will be needed in this
country by 1970."
The first objective, he said, is
"to see that young people coming
back from Vietnam have every
opportunity to go on with their
education, to get good jobs, and
to establish themselves on the
basis of equality in civilian life."
The second and third goals
would be to "smooth the transi-
tion of industry"' from war to
peacetime production, and to
channel wartime productive capa-

RFK on Vietnam
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy of New
York told the United Auto Work-
ers yesterday that as a Democratic
presidential candidate "I am con-
cerned, first, that this nation
must adopt a foreign policy which
says, clearly and distinctly, no
more Vietnams."
"We have responsibilities in the
world, but they are not to be po-
licemen of all the world," Kennedy
said in a speech prepared for d-
livery before some 3,000 delegates
for the UAW's 1.6 million mem-
"W ecannot and we must not
take as our mission tha suppres-

Kennedy said.

WASHINGTON (A) - Senate-1
House conferees adopted formally
yesterday a measure to boost
taxes $10 billion and cut federal
spending $6 billion - thereby
moving President Johnson closer
to a thorny choice.
The White House \ said it did
not* know if President Johnson
would sign the tax surcharge bill,
coupled with a mandatory spend-
ing cut.
He has said such a cut would
exceed the level he deems wise
and hence would be against the
national interest.
Press secretary George Chris-
tian was asked if Johnson would
sign the legislation in the form
agreed upon late Wednesday by
Senate-House conferees.
Johnson had given his blessing
to a $4 billion federal spending
slash in the new fiscal year that
begins July 1. However, he told a
news conference last Friday that
he thought a $6 billion cut would
bite too deeply into essential pro-
Christian said yesterday the
presidential statement of Friday
still reflected Johnson's views.
Meanwhile, Sen. Mike Mansfield
of Montana, the Senate Demo-
cratic leader, said the House-Sen-
ate conference committeemen who
recommended the $6 billion in
spending cuts should spell out
just where those cuts should be
Mansfield said he thinks any
such cuts would likely hit both
public works projects and the
government's urban programs.
t He said that if. the country is
in such dire financial straits, con-
sideration, should be given to re-
'imposition of luxury taxes, a raise
in the corporate income tax to 52
per cent, imposition of credit con-
trols such as were applied in the
Korean war period and possibly
wage and price controls.
By ordering spending cuts and
not spelling out where they should
be made, Mansfield said Congress
would be "giving the President a
responsibility that should be ours."

Koreans have moved the captured
U.S. intelligence ship Pueblo from
their port of Won son to another

The North Koreans seized the

peace envoy Gunnar V. Jarring
met Egyptian Foreign Minister
Mahmoud Riad yesterday to dis-

conference table.
Informants said Jarring men-
tioned the feasibility of direct
contacts between Arabs and Is-
raelis as a way of resolving the
dispute. Riad emphasized that
Arabs would under no Mircum-
stances sit face to face with I,s-
rhelis at the same conference
table, they added.

LINCOLN, Neb. (0) - Sen. Eu-
gene J. McCarthy has toughened
his references to Sen. Robert F.'
Kennedy as the campaign warms
for votes in Nebraska's presiden-
tial preference primary next
"This has been coining on," the
Minnesota Democrat told news-
men who queried him about the
new harder line approach.
McCarthy made the hop from
Indiana to Nebraska Wednesday,
addressed a crowd from the steps
of the courthouse in Grand Is-
land, talked to several hundred
farmers at a livestock auction and
drew about 1,200 at Hastings Col-
His references to Kennedy grew
sharper as the day wore on.
McCarthy called attention re-
peatedly to his own agricultural
committees of the Congress, while
picturing Kennedy as a stranger
to agriculture and its problems.
McCarthy invited attention to
support he has given meat import
control legislation - a subject of
interest in Nebraska where live-
stock raising and feeding repre-
sents a major industry. Kennedy
opposed the legislation, McCar-

thy said, "despite the fact that
the senator from New York hasj
favored import quotas on textiles."'
"We shall be hearing much this
week, I suspect, from Senator
Kennedy about his concern for
the farmers of Nebraska," McCar-
thy said.
McCarthy accepted a Lincoln
television station's offer of an
hour of prime television time Sun-
day night for a debate with Sen.
Kennedy or Vice President Hu-
bert H. Humphrey, or both. He
even urged his Grand Island audi-
ence "to help encourage", Kenne-
dy to join in the debate.
McCarthy, Kennedy and Pres-
ident Johnson are Democratic
ballot entries in Nebraska but
Humphrey is expected to receive
a substantial write-in support.
A Humphrey spokesman in
Washington, noting the vice pres-
ident'is not entered in the Ne-
braska primary, said Humphrey
"plans to be in Washington Sun-
day night."
"I think we will pick up
strength in Nebraska," McCarthy
said. "I think we will do all right
