(UPI) President Johnson Sunday began a week of serious foreign policy decisions including selection of 15 to 20 new U. S. ambassadors.

"This became known on high authoritv Sundav as the Chief up there reported Executive, who has been at his ranch since last Sunday for a working holiday, continued a series of year-end decisions on, his forthcoming budget and legislative program. The President still had some judgments to make about the federal spending program for fiscal 1966 he discussed at the ranch last week with eight Cab- inet members and other high aides. He particularly had de- cisions pending on totals for foreign aid, government build- ing programs and other "house- keeping matters handled by the Jeneral Services Administra- tion, and the poverty program."

He is known to consider edu- cation among the top priority items in the "Great Society" he is trying to fashion within the budgetary and legislative decisions he now is considering. And his intention remains one of seeking unhurried beginnings to that program next year so that, there will be a basis for greater gains later.

The big item to be decided this week is the tie-breaking vote measure, now in the House Rules Committee. If legislators approve the measure, it would get a court test as the lieutenant governor could cast the' deciding vote whenever the Senate lines up on a party basis on a bill. Speaker Roger Cloud expects the bill might be out of com- mittee Tuesday but Democrats thought it might take a day or two before it could get to a floor vote. In other activity by legislators this week, Senate Republicans may caucus and pick officers for the forthcoming session. It is up to Sen. William Ded- dens of Cincinnati to call a cau- cus but he has delayed while apparently trying to line up strength to get the post of pres- ident pro-tern. Also in the run ning for the post is Sen.

Civil Defense officials report- ed that one man in the isolated area suffered a heart attack but hey were unable to reach him. Racing rivers washed out the side of a mountain in nearby Del Norte County, tippling huge chunks of earth into the Smith River Canyon 15 miles from the coast. The U.S. Office of Emer- gency Planning (OEP) feared lie rapidly flowing waters might undercut the mountain. Army Engineers were dis- patched to survey the scene. Meanwhile, thousands of cold, weary and mud-splattered refu- gees began the long task of mopping up. The Red Cross in Washington D.C.. said more than suffered flood losses to their homes, farms or busi- nesses. The breakdown was 617 in California, in Ore- gon, 365 in Idaho and 149 in Washington. Robert C. Edson. American Red Cross disaster director, de- scribed the floods as the worst disaster in the northwest in 10 years. Damages in the flooded areas was expected to reach at least million, according to OEP Director Edward McDermott. He estimated that a total of families may be homeless. In Humboldt County on the northern California coast, search teams probed the flood- ed Eel River Valley for sign; of four men missing in the crash of the Marine copter.

The other four were U.S. hel- icoptermen wounded by Red gunfire that shot down their aircraft. One of the wounded Ameri- cans was a college student vis- iting his parents during the Christmas holidays and work- ing as a free lance photogra- pher. A spokesman for the U.S. military headquarters said the two incidents occurred in the Mekong delta southwest of Sai- gon. They came just three days after a Christmas Eve .errorist bomb explosion, that killed two Americans and wounded more than 100 other Americans and Vietnamese.

Bucher's parents are employes of the U.S. government assigned to South Viet Nam. The youth had been accredited as a free- lance photographer and was on a trip through the Mekong delta when he was wounded. Bucher was evacuated to the Saigon Navy hospital where his condition Sunday night was described as "good."

Christmas Holiday Traffic Toll 507 By United Press International The Christmas holiday traffic death toll climbed steeply Sunday, then slackened. Safety officials were optimistic it would stay below the record for a three-day Christmas weekend. The death count appeared headed for a total between 500 and 600.

The death rate appeared headed for a new record dur- ing most of the holiday and safety officials feared the worst Sunday as roads became con- gested with travelers on their way home. But the rate dipped late Sun- day. A bright sun over most of the nation cleared highways of snow, decreasing driving haz- ards.

And later in the period, Brown dashed 23 yards around right end to the Baltimore 14 and that set up Groza's field goal from the 10.

Security Council that Algerian and Egyptian army officers are leading Congolese rebels along the northeastern frontier of the Congo. He said his government con- sidered "the actions perpetrat- ed by these two states as a veritable declaration of war." The letter was dated Dec. 4 but sent only Saturday night. It asked the Security Council to :nsert the new complaint in the Congo's earlier charges that the Sudan, Algeria and the United Arab Republic were supplying arms to the Commu- nist-backed rebels. The earlier complaint said the three nations were interfer- ing with the Congo's internal affairs by smuggling arms to the rebels across the Congo-Su- dan border. Reliable sources said govern- ment troops have, in fact, cap- tured large numbers of foreigjn- made arms from the rebels, in- cluding standard Soviet infan- try rifles, assault weapons, light machine guns 'and Com- munist Chinese heavy automat- ic machine guns. Reliable sources said the ef- fect of these modern weapons have been felt in rebel attacks on government-held positions in the northeast Congo. However, there was no evidence that for- eign soldiers have been used to direct the actual fighting. Africans Dealt Blow In U.N. UNITED NATIONS The bitter Congo debate which ms occupied the Security Coun-r. cil through December has dealt African unity a blow from which it may take years to re- cover.
