legal basis for its actions In thefollowing an alysis these issues are explored by John M Hightower Pulitzer Prize winning reporter of The Associated Press By JOHN MHIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON AP In the spreading Senate debate over Vietnamese war policy the hawks and the doves agree on one issue They feel the United States is drifting into a bigger and much more dangerous conflict and they want to know whatPresi dent Johnson plans to do about it The twofront attack on his policy from those who want it softer and those who would get tougher threatens a severe challenge to Johnsons war leadership in the weeks ahead But it is also a challenge to the meaning of 10 years of vio lent history For U S interven tion in Viet Nam has built from the beginning a record of disap pointed hopes rising costs and drift into a war both dangerous and undeclared Sen JW Fulbright DArk chairman of the Foreign Rela tions Committee and a critic of Johnsons policies told Secre tary of State Dean Rusk a few days ago that he doubted the existence of an adequate legal base for what he United States is doing in Viet Nam going back to the start of the policy 10 years ago Yet Fulbright said that the raising of questions does not necessarily mean opposition to policy but primarily a desire for clarification There is a lack of under standing of the situation in Viet Nam Fulbright said All I am asking for is a clarification of United States policy Behind some of the senatorial attacks on Johnsons policy seems to lie concern over the fact that the shooting conflict has never been declared by Congress as a war is not being fought under United Ntions sponsorship as was the war in Korea and involves an open ended commitment which could mean war with Communist Chi na some day perhaps evn nu clear war with the Soviet Union Johnson has every confidence as he has made clear publicly and privately that he has all the authority he ijeds to con duct military operations and commit more and more forces as he judges necessary He also recognizes that Congress has the power to deny its approval of what he does and to withhold money But administration officials generally see the leadership issue as posed in more subtle terms Some at lease believe the debate now developing may help to clarify policy and meet unspoken but presumably wide VIET NAM Turn to Page 2 Incoriielevel would be fixed WASHINGTON W A blueribbon commission recommended to President Johnson and Congress Thursday that every American family be guaranteed a minimum annual income The annual cost of such a plan was said to range from billion to billion dependingon its scope As many as 35 million Americans could be affected if a minimum income level was fixedat a year This was but one of dozens of ambitious recommendations that grew out of a yearlong study by a 14member National Commission on Technology Au tomation and Economic Prog ress The group was created by Congress and appointed by Johnson to study technological unemployment and related problems Many of the commission find ings are certain to arouse con troversy Perhaps anticipating to insure these deposits said todays more
