Atchison Daily Globe (Newspaper) - August 20, 1967, Atchison, Kansas1 i Senate backers of Viet policy apparently a minority 1 1 j j Washington a sen ate support for president John son s Vietnam War course has eroded so sharply he apparently be hard put to Muster a majority for any Broad endorse ment of his asian policies. An associated press canvass which found 84 senators willing to express an opinion either publicly or private showed 44 willing to say they generally support what the president is doing and 40 who disapprove of his actions for one reason or another. A breakdown showed 27 democrats and 17 republicans Back ing the president. Those opposing his policies included 26 democrats and 14 republicans. Those who criticize the pres ident do so for sharply contrasting reasons because they include both the most convinced doves and most militant Hawks. Thus even though they list themselves As supporters some Hawks assert strongly their be Lief that Johnson should go All out militarily to bring the conflict to a Swift and victorious conclusion. On the other hand the doves complain that Johnsin is Esca lating the struggle dangerously by bombing near China targets is failing to get the South Viet namese to do their share and is leaving no opening for a negotiated peace. The substance of the com ments of individual senators indicates there is such wide spread dissatisfaction with the Way the War is going that it would be risky for the president to seek any formal endorsement of his position As he did in the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution in a gust 1964. In All tie Congress Only Sens. Wayne Morse d-ore., and Ernest , voted against the 1964 Resolution. But a number of senators including chairman . Fulbright d ark., of the Senate foreigner lations committee have said they would not support such a commitment now. Still there seems no likelihood that any attempt will be made to put into operation the machinery noted by Johnson at his news conference Friday that is available any time con Gress wants to rescind its 1964 action. Most of the senators Hadgis in their views to the associated press prior to the news Confer ence in which Johnson noted the 1964 Resolution Coulder Esclon ded by a simple majority vote in Congress without the necessity for his approval of action.

I have grave misgivings about the War from time to time but 1 am not a military expert and i won t pit my judgment against that of the sen. John g. Tower r-tex., made his reply to the canvass do you generally approve or disapprove of presi Dent Johnson s conduct of the Vietnam the occasion to announce he was leaving the ranks of those who approved to join those who disapproved.
