exact number of agents but the present total is believed about 400 There already has been some increase in the Secret Service since the assassination of Pres ident John F Kennedy Dillons statement said the program of further expansion has the approval of the Presi dents Committee on the War ren Report Shortly after the investigating commission headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren issued its report on the assassination President Johnson appointed the committee of Cabinet offi cers to study presidential pro tection The Warren Commission crit icized both the Secret Service and the FBI with

authorizing and promptly un dertaking air strikes either against Communist supply lines rom North Viet Nam to South Viet Nam through the neighbor ng kingdom of Laos or against Communist concentration points for men and supplies in the north Taylor recently declared that the outcome of the conflict is now very much in doubt But he said he thought attacks on targets in Redheld territory would probably make the Chinese and North Vietnamese qmmunist leadership realize that the conquest it seeks in the south will become too expensive because of impending damage in the north The ambassador is reported to believe that such attacks might thus compel the Hanoi regime to reconsider its policies and enter into negotiations on terms more favorable to South Viet Nam than are now consid ered possible Another benefit Taylor is be lieved to see in strikes to the north is that they might have heartening effect upon military and antiCommunist elements hi the south Government instability has been for months one of the mos serious problems in South Vie Nam Though Taylor praised Jobless rate in Iowa down Alltime low of 19 per cent DBS MOINES Ioyment in Iowa hit an alltime ow of 19 per cent
