Senate repeals Gulf of Tonkin
resolution for second time
WASHINGTON (P) - The Sen-f
ate of the United States, no
stranger to rhetoric or to repeti-
tion, outdid itself yesterday, de-
bating at length and then repeal-
ing a resolution it repealed less1
than a month ago.a
"I have been in the Senate for
16 years and I thought I had seen1
pretty much everything," com-
mented Republican Gordon Allott,
of Colorado. "But this is truly re-
"It's another f o r m of yoga,"
said Republican Leader Hugh
Scott of Pennsylvania.
"The present resolution is not
redundant," countered Sen. J. W.
Fulbright (D-Ark.) who is chair-
man of the Foreign Relations
Committee and was behind it all.
The object of Republican deri-
sion and Fulbright's earnestness
was a resolution to repeal t h e
1964 Tonkin Gulf resolution which
former President Lyndon B. John-
son used as legal authority to send
U.S. combat forces into the Viet-
The resolution w a s approved
and sent to the House on a 57-5
vote after about two hours of de-
bate that fluctuated between out-
right spoofing and high-minded

The Senate already had voted
to repeal the Tonkin resolution,
approving an amendment to that
effect 81 to 10 on June 24. That
amendment to a military sales
bill, however, ruffled the feathers
of Senate doves, notably Ful-

That was the high side of the

Scott: Last night I suggested a
limitation of debate on this reso-

than that and I wonder whether

am disposed to make an agree-
ment at this time.

REYKJAVIK, Iceland (/P)-Police sifted
through the ruins of a wooden cottage
yesterday seeking the cause of fire and
explosion which killed Iceland's prime
minister, Bjarni Benediktsson, his wife
and a grandson during the night.
Flags were flown at half staff through-
out Iceland in mourning for the 62-year-
old government chief who had wielded
a powerful influence on the politics of
this northern island nation. Johnson Has-
stein, minister of Justice and Industry,
took over as acting prime minister.
A priest who lived nearby saw the flam-
es coming from the cottage Thursday
night in Tingvellir, 40 miles from Reyk-
javik, and turned in the alarm.
A party of Danish tourists also saw
the fire and hastened to the scene, but
by the time they reached the house, it
was an inferno. A few minutes later, an
explosion lifted off the roof.
When a fire brigade arrived from Reyk-
javik an hour later, they found only ruins
and the charred remains of the prime
minister, his 50-year-old wife, Sigridur,
and grandson, Benedikt.
Martin Sweig, left, suspended ad-
ministrative assistant to House
Speaker John McCormack, is ac-
companied by his lawyer Paul T.
Smith as they leave Federal Court
in New York Thursday night. A
jury had just found him guilty
on one count of perjury and ac-
quited him on five other perjury
counts and one conspiracy count
in his influence-peddling trial.
Dr. Hale Dougherty of Anaheim, Calif., is credited with originating the Spiro
Agnew wristwatch. He, his wife and 10 children work around the clock to fill
orders. The watches are made in Switzerland and Dougherty distributes them.
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (A) - At a
stormy session, the World Youth Assem-
bly yesterday rejected leftist demands for
expulsion of representatives from South
Vietnam, South Korea and Nationalist
The assembly approved the recom-
mendation of its 18-member steering
committee that no one should be expelled
and that all participants already regist-
ered should be accepted. Some leftists
sought also expulsion of Greece and
Similarly the assembly endorsed the
committee's proposal to ,make new bids
asking Communist China, North Viet-
nam, North Korea and the Provisional
Revolutionary Government of South Viet-
nam to send representatives. They have
rejected previous invitations.
Lars Thalen, 26, of Stockholm, a vet-
eran of socialist youth organizations at
home, presided over the assembly session
as chairman of its steering committee. He
said the committee had come up with its
recommendations endorsed by a major-
ity after a marathon nine-hour meeting
that ended at 5 a.m.
When the assembly declined to accept
the recommendations of the steering com-
miteee as a whole he conducted votes on
'separate items by voice, the raising of
hands or calling on delegates to stand.

porters won out in their demands that

The assembly of about 600 delegates
ended up endorsing in main the recom-
mendations of its steering committee.
Thalen's deft handling was credited with
gaining that objective.
Wearing a white open-neck shirt in
keeping with the informal dress of most
male participants, Thalen spoke out in
exasperation when whistles and boos
greeted some speakers.
"I think this is fantastic," he declared.
