WASHINGTON (P) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson warned Soviet
leaders through an unusual public
statement yesterday that continu-
ed attacks on the United Statesj
embassy in Moscow could damage
American-Soviet relations.
The statement, designed to un-
derscore official protests already
made here and in the Soviet capi-
tal, reflected growing tension be-
tween the world's two biggest1
powers, resulting from their in-
creasing involvement in the con-

flict in Southeast Asia.
{ "The President," said Press
v . Secretary George E. Reedy, "takes
,. a most serious view of the fact,
that police protection furnishedl
,p . the American embassy in Moscow
yesterday was wholly inadequate,{
despite prior notification to theI
Soviet government of an impend- 1
ing demonstration."
Press dispatches said that about'

ed the U.S. embassy building with1
ink and broke a reported 200 win-
dows with stones and icy snow-j
balls.

dents being watched by Soviet
police, lined up at intervals in

diplomatic relations, informants i

"The civil rights picture has
taken a turn for the worse lately,"
Congressman Weston Vivian (D-

interview last night.
"Some people felt the 1964 civil

clared.f

the law, perhaps it would be suf-

to be doing that."

civil rights law, local authorities
apply federal standards to qual-

state's for the latter.
"In this way, the local authori-
ties maintain the discrimination
they've always had in the local

crucial," Vivian commented.
