A source in a position to know President Jotnson's mind gave that picture Sunday. As is traditional at the be- ginning of a presidential term, all cabinet members and under- secretaries and assistant secre- taries are putting in their resig- nations. Some To Go "A good number" of the res- ignations of undersecretaries and assistant secretaries will be taken up by Johnson, an in- formed source said. Nevertheless, this source said, "there will be plenty of excep- tions." For example, Johnson is known to think highly of Under- secretary of State George Ball and Deputy Secretary of De- fense Cyrus R. Vance. Both will be slaying on. Career Promotion Johnson has instructed his talent scouls to look both with- in and outside the government for people qualified for high-lev- el jobs. The promotion of William J. Driver to he Administrator of Veterans Affairs is cited as an example of Johnson's desire promote people from the career service. Driver will be the first career man lo hold the lop VA job.

The man lo fill at leasl one of these jobs has been decided upon, but Johnson Is witholding an announcemenl pending completion of the usual security check.
