Gaulle Explains Decision to Johnson;
intends U.S. China Policy Out of Date

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The decision
by French President Charles de
tsaule to recognize Red China
places new strains on Washington-
Paris reations. it is a, ove strong-
ly Oposed by the United States.
Why is he going through with the
recognition? His reasoning is cov-
ered in this article.)
AP Diplomatic Affairs Writer
WASHINGTON-French Presi-
dent Charles de Gaulle has sent
word to President Lyndon B.
Johnson that he decided to recog-
nize Red 'China primarily because
he felt it unwise in a rapidly
changing world to ignore any
longer the largest and most pow-
erful nation in the Far East.
De Gaulle's argument, made
nown to the State Department
and White House through various
diplomatic channels, boiled down
to a contention that the United
States policy of trying to isolate
the Communist mainland of Chi-
na from the world of allied na-
tions is unproductive and out of
The latest and perhaps most
comprehensive presentation of de
Gaulle's views on this alliance-
straining issue was made by Ca
nadan Prime Minister Lester B.
Pearson w'hen. he conferred here
Wednesday with Johnson.
Pearson came here following a
visit to Paris last week during
which he had several talks with
the French leader.
Expect Announcement
France is expected to announce
recognition. next week and. take
immediate steps to establish full
diplomatic relations with the Red
regime in Peking. Next Friday de
Gaulle is scheduled to hold a news
conference and the prospect is
that he will set forth his position
on the China question at that
As now understood by top Unit-
ed States officials, his views cover
these major points:
1) He feels there is 4 vacuum
In Western policy in the Far East
because of' a lack of effective con-
tact between the Western powers
and the Red Chinese leadership.
Thus he has argued that the
Western powers will gain in the
long run from having France
move into the gap.
United States officials have ar-
gued with the French that Britain
has had diplomatic contact with
Red China from the beginning of
the Peking regime 13 years ago
and this has made no real differ-
ence in Chinese policy. But de
Gaulle's associates have answered

AFLe-CIO President August Scholle
contends that the formula, based
80 per cent on population and 20
per cent on area is in violation of
the United States Constitution be-
cause it denies the principle of

ment on a new districting plan by
its Jan. 31 deadline.

on this point that the French ac-
tion will introduce a completely
new element into Red Chinese
considerations at a critical point
in world history.
Power Conflict
2) De Gaulle sees the split be-
tween Russia and Red China as
a tremendous power conflict rath-
er than an ideological struggle

over Communist doctrine as many
Western experts ordinarily de-
scribe it. He feels it is important
for the West to have maximum
contacts with both sides in thisl
struggle, not just with the Soviet
3) Under terms of the under-
standing which he has reached
with Red China for establishing
{ : r;;x ?- :33ca 5::Y;'+."v?;;:' -" Kta -' - v:+;

recognition, de Gaulle believes he
may be laying a basis for a two-
China policy since the Chinese
did not lay down the condition
that recognition covered also their
claim to Formosa.
Formosa is the island base of
the Chinese Nationalist govern-
ment which is recognized and
strongly supported by the United
States. There has been consider-
able talk over the years of the
possibility that a two-China poli-
cy could open the way for recogni-
tion of the factual situation that
the Communists control the main-
land and the Nationalists control
the island. Both the Communists
and Nationalists have in the past
rejected this.
Work for Neutrality
4) Once relations are establish-
ed, de Gaulle believes it should be
possible to use French influence
in Peking to work for Red Chi-
nese acceptance and support of a
true policy of neutrality in South-
east Asia-where the East-West
conflict now centers in South Viet
Other Western leaders, particu-
larly United States policy-makers,
sharply dispute the reliability of
any Red Chinese neutrality pledge
since the neutralization of Laos
is still in controversy and United
States officials think any partial
neutrality measures would be us-
ed by the Reds as a new spring-
board for conquest.
State Department authorities
argue that proposals to neutralize
South Viet Nam, for example,
would make no sense unless Com-
munist North Viet Nam was also
neutralized and this is considered
to be out of the question.
Bargaining Position
5) De Gaulle believes that rec-
ognition of Red China is directly
in line with' the policy of his
government for re-establishing a
position of French influence in
Southeast Asia. And he sees the
possibility that expanding trade
and other ties between France
and the Communist Chinese
mainland will provide a bargain-
ing position for this.

Seeks Aid
Lyndon B. Johnson has urged
Congress to enact a far-reaching
$540 million aid to education pro-
gram as part of his 1965 budget,
according to the Washington Post.'
Among Johnson's proposals are
more provisions to help 'college
students, with $45 million ear-
marked for loans, graduate fellow-
ships and subsidized part-time
campus jobs.
The President requested Con-
gress to approve those portions of
the Kennedy education program
not passed last year, including
grants for public schools. He also
budgeted funds to put into effect
programs for vocational education
and college construction author-
ized a few months ago.
Supplemental Appropriations
He proposed supplemental ap-
propriations to the programs at
once and full appropriations for
fiscal 1965.
The public school aid program,
to increase teachers' salaries and
build more classrooms, died in the
midst of bitter debate last year
when backers of parochial schools
insisted on also receiving aid. The
church-state issue is expected to
come up again and some observers
feel the outcome i, dim for passage
of the program.
However, Johnson has tied this
controversial program to another
request, which may fare better in
Congress. That proposal asks for
aid to states and local school dis-
tricts to cope with educational
problems in city and rural slums
as part of his "war on poverty"
$540 Million Request
About $540 million is asked for
both programs. The anti-poverty
portion would finance research
and demonstration projects in
teaching slum children.
Johnson's proposed budget also
calls for $2.2 billion for the Office
of Education, $1 billion more than
this year.

Business Bosses Drive Dallas



As Nehru's Assistant
Associated Press Staff Writer
NEW DELHI-Lal Bahadur Shastri began his duties yesterday
as deputy-and political heir apparent-to ailing Prime Minister
Jawaharlal Nehru.
A mild-looking but toughly effective man standing 5-2, Shastri
moved into the office next door to the vacant office of the 74-year-
old prime minister.
Ranks of the ruling Congress party closed in almost unanimous
support for Shastri, who is 59. A believer in the ideological mid-

The experiment, Hunt conclud-
ed, would produce dedicated and
prosperous men working quietly
for the good of the people.
In the author's home city, such,
an invisible government has ex-
isted since 1937. It is called the
Dallas Citizens Council.
Few of the 234 businessmen'
who make up the Citizens Coun-

its negation of democracy. Yet the

Of Measure
By The Associated Press
Working against time, the two
rival party leaders in the House
said Thursday they feel they can
get enough votes to give immed-
iate effect to a bill to set up a
new State Court of Appeals, al-
though key Senate Republicans
expressed some doubt.
If the bill is not given immed-
iate effect, the state will not get
a new appelate court system by
Jan. 1, 1965, as intended by the
new Constitution. It would nor-
mally not take effect until 90
days after adjournment, which
would delay establishment of the
court system by a full year.
Meanwhile, the first minimum
wage bill of the session, calling for
a wage hour of $1.50, was filed
'for introduction in the House by
Rep. Edward Michalski (D-De-
troit). He also introduced a bill
providing that denial of a job to
any person on account of his age
would be an unfair labor practice.

Because the Citizens Council
has in the last decade become
particularly impressed with the
importance of education, that ap-
proval will almost certainly be
Found Lack of Authority
Little appears in the newspapers
about the workings of the Citizens
Council, although, as one of its
officials said, "Membership on our
board of directors is the first
thing that's usually mentioned in
an obituary, before the church the
man belonged to or what business
he was in." The group is not to be
confused with the segregationist
White Citizens Council common
in the South.
The Dallas Citizens Council was
formed after the centennial cele-
bration of Texas independence,
.held in Dallas in 1936. The busi-
nessmen of the city had worked
hard to raise $3.5 million for the
event, but the experience had
shown them how loosely organ-
ized their city was.
R. L. Thornton, Sr., one of the
five living founders of the Citizens
Council, explained later that the
backers of the centennial had
been slowed by the lack of au-
thority they constantly encoun-
tered. After a meeting, delegates
had to report back to their com-
panies before making financial

"We needed people," Thornton
said, "Who could say 'yes' or 'no'
right away, to determine if a pro-
ject could be done quickly and
efficiently. In fact, I wanted to
call it 'Yes-Or-No,' but I was
Thornton served as Mayor of
Dallas for eight years and as

president of the Citizens Council
for six. The current Mayor, Earle
Cabell, is eligible for the Citizens
Council, not because of his elec-
tive post, but because he is the
president of a dairy.
In hailing the election last week
of John Stemmons as the new
president of the Citizens Council,
one newspaper laid out an agenda
of civic business for him worthy
of a mayor or of a governor.
Must Be Invited
Three rules were established for
membership in the Dallas Citizens
Council: The member must be the
chief executive officer of a busi-
ness, he must be genuinely con-
cerned with the good of the city
and he must be invited. Hunt is
not a member.

Reuther Views
Excess ProfiIS
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Automobile manu-
facturers can raise wages, cut
prices and still make a good profit,
Walter Reuther, president of the
United Auto Workers union, said
Anticipating new contract nego-
tiations this summer, Reuther
said his union wants to take its
gains out of the "greater profit-
ability" of the industry.
He said that car manufacturers
can cut prices of cars and trucks
$200 and still make an 18 per cent
profit after taxes.
G e n e r al Motors, Ford and
Chrysler spokesmen declined to
comment on Reuther's remarks,
saying they wanted to study the

Nehru has told Shastri to take
over most of the work. Although
Shastri is not given the title of
deputy prime minister he now
amounts to that.
Some well-informed sources said
that from there on an intrigue
developed and intensified in the
cabinet sub-leadership. This is
how it' went.
Home Minister Gurzarilal Nanda
and Finance Minister T. T. Krish-
namachari returned to New Delhi
from Bhubaneswar and told Pres-
ident Sarvarell Radkhakrishnan
that Nehru had told them to
handle routine matters for him.
However, Nehru never gave such
instructions, and they virtually
took over.
For the last two weeks there
has been a subterranean struggle
in which Nanda sought to keep
Shastri out of the cabinet so as
to preserve his own importance.
But as early as a week ago it be-
came clear that Shastri would
move into deputy prime minister
status and Nanda had lost.

Reorganization Bill Introduced

ment will take on a streamlined
new look if a bill introduced this
week by Senators Gerry Brown
(R-Schoolcraft) and T h o m a s
Schweigert (R-Petoskey) becomes
The bill would reorganize the
functions of about 125 state agen-
cies, commissions and offices un-


der 15 major departments.
One of these new departments
would give a "director of licensing
and regulation" authority over
the work being done by 23 separ-
ate boards and by the racing com-

over some licensing or certifica-

The new Constitution gives the
Legislature until the end of next
year to put all executive and ad-
ministrative offices "within not
more than 20 principal depart-
ments." Failing that, the task
would fall to the governor.
Some of the agency transfers
would mean a surrender to the
