candidate to take advantage of Johnsons offer of special in telligence briefings on the world situation for presidential aspi rants Briefing the New York gov ernor for nearly two hours were Secretary of State Dean Rusk Secretary of Defense Robert S McNamara and Central Intelli gence Agency Director John McCone Rockefeller told reporters the intelligence estimates were helpful in bringing his informa tion up to date but did not change his opinion as to the for eign policies which he thinks should be followed Specifically in reply to a question he said it is stili a fair statement to say that he believes the American people are not getting the full story on Viet Nam Rockefeller he stands on his criticism of the way the administration is dealing with the war in Viet Nam He has proposed that the South Vietnamese pursue the Communists into North Viet Nam when they flee across the border and that the South Viet namese bomb supply bases across the boundary in North Viet Nam When Rockefeller reached the White House he was promptly escorted to Johnsons office While posing for photographers in the presidential office he and Johnson discussed the progress of civil rights and

for some time although the four state route over existing highways was opened officially Friday Signs directing tourists over the 600mile trail thirough scenic and historic sections of north ern and eastern Iowa wont be ready for nearly two months And there is some question whether the planned signs can be used at all without jeopardiz ing federal highway appropria tions Gov Harold Hughes said be fore he left for Chicago for the opening ceremonies that I am naturally disappointed that the signs arent on the highways But Im not surprised or dis satisfied This was a joint ven ture with three other states and these things are hard to work out It was nobodys fault We wanted to go ahead with the opening even though the signs arent up because we hope to attract some of the families taking early vacations Hughes said the questions raised by federal authorities about the signs would be dis cussed when he and the gover nors of Illinois Wisconsin and Minnesota open the trail which is a joint venture with the states and the American Petroleum Institute The US Bureau of Public Roads at a meeting in Madi son Wis last week decided the signs designed for the trail did not conform with federal mark ers and would be unacceptable on UShighways Wisconsin has decided to go ahead with the erection of the signs but Minnesota officials plan to wait for a clarification Hughes office saSd The 425 signs planned for tht on their own Signs a rent up icin i 11 trail through Iowa have not yet been ordered The Highway Commission had planned to award contracts for the signs at its May 27 meeting The contracts call for the signs to be delivered by June 27 but the markers still would have to be erected and the trail in Iowa probably could not be fully marked until mid commission officials said The dispute with federal high way officials could set the plac ing of signs back even longer but Hughes said he could see no reason why the signs could not be erected along highways There are signs for similar trails in at least 30 states he said Despite the problems with the signs Hughes said he is still op timistic that the tourist trail will attract vacationers to Iowa and other Midwest states He fs hoping the trail will en courage families to visit Iowa areas they might otherwise overlook and thereby pump tourists dollars into the states economy during the vacation season He said pamphlets listing the attractions in the four states through which the trail winds have been distributed to travel agencies and will be made avail able to anyone who asks for them Iowa attractions listed in the pamphlets include the Herbert Hoover B i rt h p 1 a c e at West Branch the Indian Settlement at Tama the Maquoketa Caves scenic areas along the Mississip pi River the old
