night displayed a wide smile after he had addressed the organization at its convention in Miami Beach Fla MIAMI BEACH Fla AP President Johnson says he will not be deterred influenced or inflamed by his Vietnam war critics regardless of my polls and regardless of the elections Departing from his prepared text in a nationally televised and broadcast speech to the AFL-CIO convention here day the President I am going down the center of the my duty as I see it the best of my country The representatives of labor roared their approval when Johnson said he would ways be ready to hear and act on any proposal for ending the Vietnam war And their volume increased when he But in the meantime I want you to I want all Americans to I am not going to be deterred I am not going to be influenced I am not going to be inflamed by a bunch of political selfish men who want to advance their own interest The President also had harsh words for congressional licans terming them wooden soldiers warring on progress He asked the representatives of the house of labor to help crats elect great Congress in 1968 convention gates officials and guests interrupted Johnson's jibes at the Republicans with cheers applause and laughter The people know that the old Republican buggy can only go one Johnson said That old lican buggy has been colliding with us all year of GOP efforts in Congress to block or alter his proposals on education antipoverty medical care and Social Security The President's pledge to stand firm on his Vietnam cies drew renewed backing from AFL-CIO President George Meany We support you

the former White House guideline that until last year attempted to hold wage hikes to 3.2 percent a year Johnson's greeting in the plush hotel convention hall bore the trappings of a political meeting with delegates waving signs reading We Support Johnson in Vietnam and All the Way with LBJ as a band played Hello Dolly which Johnson supporters translate as Hello The speech climaxed a long AFL-CIO convention marked by total support for Johnson on virtually all issues except for a handful of gates who want the labor ation to be neutral on the nam war Repeating offers to negotiate peace if Hanoi will come way Johnson said of U.S war critics It is easy to agonize and moralize on the television to pin your heart on your sleeve or a placard on your think that you are helping to stop war Makes
