The nearly 300 Vermont reservists returned Home saturday. De Gaville leaves on Viet Nam peace ambitions by k c. Thale London up a the Western Alliance already badly shaken by Frances go it alone policy in Europe has come under severe pressure from yet another key ally West Germany. The Bone of Contention is the projected inter Allied nuclear Force which if established would give the Federal government a say in nuclear strategy. But agreement on such a Force seems a Long Way off. West Germany feels frustrated by Anglo american indecision on this score and is also becoming suspicious of alleged British moves towards unilateral nuclear disarmament in Europe. The forthcoming West German general election sept. 19 is a major Factor behind the stepped up Campaign in Bonn against Anglo american nuclear policy. The Campaign coincides with current United states and British efforts to get a nuclear nonproliferation agreement with Russia. The russians have said All along that conclusion of such an agreement is conditional on the scrapping of All plans for a nato nuclear Force. The russians Back their demand with the argument that West Germany is itching to get its fingers on the nuclear trigger. The latest clamor in Bonn for German participation in Allied nuclear strategy has tended to toughen Moscow a stand. The fact is that the United states and Britain have so far been unable to agree Between gemini-5 flight proves Man is space capable Paris up a French presi have to involve neutralization Dent Charles de Gaulle has of All Southeast Asia and with chosen to leave the world still drawl of All United states guessing about his peace Mak forces from Viet Nam and that Long ambitions in Viet Nam. This can be achieved Only he May lift the curtain a lit through peace talks in which communist China would take part. In All this de Gaulle a own ideas no longer seem As far decides the to Rne Apar it rom these or Stdeni Johnson As they did a year ago. In fact French officials concede Washington can not very Well do much else than what it is doing in Viet Nam now namely watch for every Braet is we Tori Quot he so talks pm fable Opportunity for peace talks and at the same time tie in his sept. 9 news conference. But for the time being he is playing it close to the Vest to ensure the maximum Impact of and when he is Ripe to intervene. De Gaulle a decision not to reveal his hand now became Clear after cultural affairs minister Andre Malraux reported to him and the French with chinese communist party chief Mao tse Tung and other peking leaders. A statement read by information minister Alain Peyre Fitte after wednesdays Cabinet beef up its military position so As to be Able to negotiate a from strength when the time comes. What does disturb de Gaulle meeting with All indications of according to French officials is de Gaulle a personal author the total Lack of Contact be slap described Malraux stalks tween the United states and As a of great the statement insisted Malraux did not go to China to discuss a possible Viet Nam peace settlement. But it spoke twice of the a a realities of present Day China and stressed the a a importance attached by France to China a role in the world. Otherwise it gave no real insight into what took place in peking or into de Gaulle a future plans on Viet Nam. There seems Little doubt however that de Gaulle remains convinced the Only possible ultimate settlement would communist China. It is Here officials say that he believes that ultimately he can play a peace maker s role by acting As go Between Between Washington and peking. But this is a Long term Prospect. Malraux stalks with Mao tse Tung and other chinese communist leaders apparently showed no readiness on peking a part to negotiate. On the contrary he was said to have found them completely unbending. So though de Gaulle remains convinced the Viet Nam War must be settled some Day at the conference table he still appears unsure How to bring communist China to it. One thing is certain according to French officials a de Gaulle will make no Public move in this direction until he is reasonably convinced it will succeed. Until then he will continue watching and playing it close to the West.

Yukon. Cached men Between 19 and 26 was a mistaken one. Few of those drafted Are Likely to see service in Viet Nam itself where the troop commitment is mainly made up of voluntary enlistees. But draftees will be needed to fill gaps in the ranks caused by transfers to Viet Nam from . Commitments elsewhere. There Are a total of about 17 million men in the United states in the current draft eligible age Range of 18 to 26. Draft officials said however that the number of Able bodied single men in this total who would meet All the various requirements for the draft will be insufficient to meet demands. The officials said that the first to go into uniform would be an estimated 160,000 Young bachelors Between 19 and 26. They said that starting in november local draft boards would be ready to begin putting into effect in their callus president Johnson a recent order that men married after aug. 26 be treated the same As bachelors. By Early next year some childless men married before aug. 26 Are Likely to be called the officials added. Selective service director Gen. Lewis b. Hershey expressing contempt for Young men who rushed out on the eve of the aug. 26 deadline to get married in an attempt to beat the draft has said the government was considering drafting them anyway. He added however that they would be Only a a drop in the bucket among the total number of eligible. Under the orders issued by Johnson last month for a troop buildup monthly draft Calls have so far been doubled to about 35,000, and with the first increases coming this month. Based on these figures officials said indications Are that the draft will provide about 400,000 men for the military next year. The army will get the bulk of these men but the Navy has asked for 6,000 men in october and probably will panties Driver Milan Italy up a bus Driver Angelo Ferruzzo splashed a group of people waiting at a bust Stop on a rain soaked Street tuesday.

Today a schedule for the gemini twins called for More of the routine medical tests they have faced since their sunday splashdown and More of the a a debriefings needed to prepare for future space flights. One result of the gemini 5 flight was revealed tuesday. President Johnson approved a new policy that will promote Conrad from a lieutenant commander to a commander in the Navy. Cooper was promoted to a lieutenant colonel in the air Force last month. Berry said their flight gave a medical go ahead for the two week gemini 7 flight expected to be made by astronauts Frank Borman and James Lovell in january. The flight surgeon also reaffirmed his immediate conclusion after the gemini recovery that Man can stay in space Long enough for flights to the Moon and Back. The first Moo shot is set for 1969. Themselves Cai How to Settle the problem. The two Western nuclear nations Are agreed that West Germany and other nato allies should be Given some degree of responsibility in nato nuclear policy. But they differ on just How this can be done without giving West Germany a Finger on the trigger. They just want Bonn to have a Finger on the a safety Britain has of late made it Clear it wants to retain a veto in any nato nuclear Force and so does the United states in principle. At least some of Germany a influential politicians oppose an Anglo american veto and want majority Rule in any inter Allied nuclear Force. The United states recently put a plan to the russians in Geneva for a nuclear non proliferation treaty which it Felt left the door open for an eventual inclusion of West Germany and other allies in some form of nato nuclear Force. The russians rejected it. Former Federal Chancellor Konrad Adenauer a who still leads the ruling Christian democratic party in Bonn a was outraged by the american plans alleged vagueness and termed it an outright betrayal on the part of the United states. Since then the former Federal defense minister forceful Franz Josef Strauss has added his Sharp criticism of alleged Allied duplicity and feet dragging. German suspicion has been heightened by Britain a latest decision to replace some of its nuclear artillery with the British army of the Rhine with conventional weapons. This has led to charges Britain is engaged in some form of unilateral nuclear disarmament in Europe that will leave West Germany dangerously exposed to soviet missile Power. Vigorous assertions Are being made in Bonn that German interests Are being neglected by wavering allies. And Allied diplomats think that something will have to be done pretty soon if the process of erosion in nato is to be halted. President s Church coins a ecumenical by Merriman Smith up White House reporter Washington up a Back stairs at the White House president Johnson a Hometown Church is becoming known As an Active demonstration of the ecumenical spirit. The first Christian Church of Johnson City tex., last sunday had in its congregation in addition to the president and his wife such Well known catholics As the younger daughter of the first family Luci 18, and Lawrence f. Of Brien the new postmaster general to be. Also on hand was ambassador Arthur j. Goldberg of the jewish Faith and a capacity crowd of protestants. Few churches even those much larger can boast such ecumenical attendance. It should be said for Luci and her recently embraced catholicism however that before she went to the Christian Church in Johnson City she at sweeps Backer is a candidate from Vav Winooski Winooski up a Democrat James Shea has announced his candidacy for one of the 15 seats Winooski and Burlington will share in the re apportioned House. Shea who fought hard for a Bill that would have set up a state sweepstakes in Vermont is a former mayor and councilman of Winooski. Another Shea sponsored Bill that went Down to defeat in the 1965 session was a measure that would have placed Cable television companies under the jurisdiction and regulation of the Public service Board. Shea indicated that of he wins he will has 3 another crack at the sweepstakes Bill which has gone Down of defeat in two successive sessions. Tended mass at the Catholic Church in Fredericksburg. Luci is growing into a most attractive and level Heade. Young woman. She seemed a bit put out last weekend when the newspapers of the nation printed one of her longer poems this one dedicated to her fathers 57th birthday. It was a rather intimate poetic work which Luci never expected to see published when she wrote it. When reporters thronged the lbs ranch last sunday for the presidents news conference during a Post conference social hour Over Coffee and cookies the president was asked How his daughter came to produce an entire volume of poetry. The president grandly turned the question Over to Luci who was standing nearby. She did not want to discuss it but her father had pushed her into the Center of attention and she had to say something. After debating with herself for a moment she came up with a quite Lucid explanation saying that like Many Young people she had scribbled poems for her own interest since she was eight or nine years old. She said her father was a most difficult person for whom to find gifts. Thus on his 57th birthday she decided to have her girlhood poems bound. She gave him the volume last Friday As he celebrated his birth Day on the ranch. Her Story had no big punchline then. Was no laugh or Point of drama. But what made it interesting was the sure footed and no nonsense manner in which she explained her poetry. Not once was she at a loss for words. And not Many teen age girls could conduct themselves so coolly in front of a group of highly professional reporters and photographers. Want More. The marines also Are considering taking some draftees. Exactly who will get called depends on a number of factors including statutory requirements and manpower situations in the specific areas administered by local draft boards. Of the total of 17 million men in the proper age group Only about 2 million Are in the unmarried or childless married categories classified a a or available for the draft. Officials say pre induction tests could Cut this Pool by More than half. Then More than half a million men classified As 1a Are in the special consideration married class who because they were married before aug. 26, will still be Given preferred treatment under an executive order issued two years ago by the late president John f. Kennedy. About 300,000 i a a Are 18-year-Olds who under a 1951 draft Law provision cannot be called until All other Las have been drafted including men past the present draft cutoff age of 26 who have been granted a deferment at one time or another.
