Meeting reporters in the sun- drenched White House rose gar- den outside his office, Johnson made these pronouncements: 1. Civil rights demonstrators like those "who seemed insist- ent on being rude" during the President's trip Wednesday to the. New York World's Fair "serve no good of promoting the cause (hey profess to support or of disrupt- ing that cause." Won't Be Slopped Saying, "I pitied John- son declared the civil rights cause will not be slopped "ei- ther by fanaticism or rude- ness." 2. More military bases will be closed and noncombat activities will be curbed to save an addi- tional million a year. Secre- tary of Defense Robert S, Mc- Namara will announce the de- tails Friday. 3. The President would like to confer now with presidential as- pirants to get suggestions on "the wise course to pursue" in foreign policy. To Talk Problems Johnson said, "I just don't know who speaks for the Republicans and added, with respect to South Viet Nam, "some of them want more war in that area and some want more appeasement." He said he wants eventually to "talk over the problems of the world" and try to unite on what is "best for our country." 4.

He will meet governors of the Appalachia stales at Huntington and, perhaps, hold another news conference afterward. 6.

And he ex- pressed hope "that we would see some other flags in (here, other to help in a unit- ed attempt to whip the Commu- nist guerrillas.
