They believe the meeting of- fers little hope of Viet Nam peace initiatives. Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen gave this GOP viewpoint in an interview: "You're not going to stop the war there at this point." Dirksen, who has supported the President's course in South- east Asia, indicated he suspects the seven-nation Manila meet- ing in mid-October might wind up with a promise for the exten- sion of the "Great Society" to all of Asia. "That is where we Republi- cans will come he said. "We will want to .know how it is proposed to finance an exten- sion of the Great Society bene- fits to the whale world." Sen. J.W. Fulbright, D-Ark., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he Guard Called Up Rioters Shake San Francisco hoped "they will do something new" but indicated he doesn't think they will. He said the session sounded like it would be "an expanded Honolulu meeting" where "our boys" would make up "a cozy group." Fulbright, a critic of John- son's Southeast Asia policies, called again for a pause in the bombing of targets in North Viet Nam. He said Hanoi, Pe- king and Moscow all regard the bombing as a symbol of an ex- panded war. The White House denied re- cent reports that there might be a pre-election halt in the air at- tacks. In support of this, an offi- cial said there is no sign that the Communist side is willing to de-escalate ths fighting, a con- dition U.N; Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg laid down for any cessation of the bombing. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., said in a prepared Senate speech that while the meeting is desirable as a show of unity over Viet Nam policy, "it would be unfortunate if the Manila conference, like the Honolulu conference, promised much and accomplished little." "The gap between the re- forms pledged at Honolulu and the reforms carried out by the Saigon government still remains embarrassingly he said. "Therefore, I urge the Presi- dent to clarify his objectives and to make sure they are attainable, and not to raise ex- pectations that cannot be ful- filled." He said the Communists' re- jection of recent U.S. peace overtures may result in "mounting pressures for escala- tion of force in Viet Nam." Dirksen told a news confer- ence that unless there is some "awful blunder" at Manila, he does not believe the President's visit to Asia will affect the Nov. 8 congressional election results. "I think the people have made up their minds (about Viet their views have hard- ened and I don't believe any last-minute developments will change their he said. Invitations to the Manila meeting were extended by Phil-. Ippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos to leaders of Australia, South Korea, Thailand, Zealand, South Viet Nam and. the United States. All accepted. Republicans have been plug- ging the idea that an all-Asian, conference, might be able to take the initiative in seeking peace in Viet Nam. But Dirksen said the Manila meeting falls short by not including India, Pakistan and Japan among par-, ticipanls.

At the same time more than miles to the east, the 10th tropical storm of the season Judith, boiled up in the tropica Atlantic. Satellite pictures showed tha Judith grew to storm intensity not far south of the spot where Inez began her long and mur- derous journey. Gales began lashing the vaca tion island of Puerto Rico dur ing the morning and were ex pected to keep it up during most of the day as the tightl; coiled storm whipped about 7 miles south.

It also is near Candle- stick Park, the home of the San Francisco Giants. Triggering the riot was the shooting of Matthew Johnson, 16, a Negro who was killed by Patrolman Alvin Johnson after the youth and a companion fled on wot from a stolen car. The policeman said he shouted re- peatedly for the youth to stop and fired three warning shots before the fatal shot hit he youth in the back. Mayor John F.

Faubus Teases Rival Candidates LITTLE ROCK (AP) Gov. Orval Faubus told the two men fighting to succeed him Tues- day night that he will leave an unprecedented amount of sur- plus funds for the incoming governor. "That he quickly added, "if I don't call a special session and use part of it." Faubus, Jim Johnson and Winthrop Rockefeller were all together for a banquet at the state Welfare Department's meeting. It was the first time Johnsen and Rockefeller had met in pub lie since Johnson won the Democratic gubernatorial nom- ination. They even shook hands. Faubus' failure to assure the two that he wouldn't call a spe- cial session brought varied re- actions from Johnson and Rock- efeller, according to a guest at the banquet. The guest said Rockefeller laughed and Johnson smiled and shook his head. A highlight of Faubus' speech was his announcement that a new Welfare Department budg- et, which has his blessings, in- cludes a annual increase in the salary ef county welfare directors, as well as increases for other Welfare Department employes. The new salary for directors would be compared to when he took office in 1055, Faubus said. Johnson, who like Rockefeller made brief remarks to the about 850 Welfare Department employes at the banquet, said jokingly it appeared that Wel- fare Commissioner A. J. Moss had gathered the forces his department to put pressure on the two candidates te go along with the proposed budget. "I surrender, I'll go along with all these Johnson quipped. Rockefeller praised Faubus, his opponent in 1964, for Wel- fare Department accomplish- ments in helping the aged and children. He pledged to contin- ue working for progress in the welfare field. Johnson called on those at the banquet to help him win the Nov. 8 general election against his Republican opponent. that's what I wanted to do ge lome as quickly as possible."
