decide this week whether tov re sume the bombing of North Viet Nam But any major new esca lation of the Vietnamese war such as bombing Hanoi is con sidered unlikely at this time Secretary of State Dean Rusk said Sunday night the decision on renewed bombing is still to be made He refused to say what he favored or predict what course Johnson would choose The President is caught be tween advocates of totally con tradictory proposals Many for eign governments some mem bers of Congress some officials in the administration favor pro longing the pause Others in cluding military leaders and top American officials in Saigon would like to start pounding North Viet Nam again quickly Rusk said Johnson is taking all elements of the situation into consideration including the fact that we must do all we can to assure the safety of our own and Allied forces fighting the Com munists in South Viet Nam Some military planners are reported to have put up propos als that the United States not only start bombing again but change the restrictions which existed all last year in order to allow attacks on Hanoi the cap ital and Haiphong the port of North Viet Nam It is understood that Johnson has no such intention of broad ening the war at this time However officials said that the new look at policy and strategy now getting under way could possibly lead to changes in his thinking about what is needed Rusk said Sunday night in an NBC radiotelevision interview on Meet the Press that the escalation of conflict depends on the aggressor Johnson had said last week that be wants to keep the war limited if possible On Capitol Hill Senate Demo cratic Leader Mike Mansfield said he hopes the President will continue the bombing pause as long as there is a faint glim mer of hope for peace negotia
