to Montgom ery Sunday The Army official would neither confirm nor deny that troops have been brought to Maxwell Air Base at Montgomery Sources in Selma said two battalions of regular Army troops had already reached Selma for use if needed JOHNSON CITY Tex U Johnson Satur day federalized the Ala bama National Guard be cause of the danger of do mestic violence during the planned five day voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery Ala Presidential Press Secretary George E Reedy announced the decision during a predawn news conference In a proclamation the Presi dent said he took the action be cause there a substantial likelihood that domestic vio lence may occur in connection with the march scheduled to start Sunday Johnson previously had warned that he would federalize the Guard if Alabama Gov George C Wallace didnt Reedy didnt say but it ap peared that federal troops also might be used to augment the Alabama militia Johnson had said that if it were necessary for him to ac tivate the Guardsmen he would support them with whatever military troops might e necessary And his order Saturday pro vided that the Secretary of De fense could use such armed forces of the United States as he may deem necessary It was the fifth time since 1957 that a president has federalized a state militia during a racial crisis Alabama also was in volved in two of the previous orders In calling up Guard John son issued two documents One was a proclamation set ting forth the background and noting that Wallace had refused to provide protection for the marchers as directed by Feder al Judge Frank M Johnson Jr The other was an executive order giving the Secretary ot Defense the necessary author ity The order provided for the uss of any or all of the states Army and Air National Guard thus raising the possibility that Ne groes might be among the march protectors The National Guard Bureau in Washington said there are no Negroes in the Army Guard but that the Air Guard includes two Negro members The march is meant to dram atize what civil rights leaders say is the states discrimination against Negroes and their vot ing rights The 50mile march originally was scheduled March 7
