He made the announcement of the time and place of the opera- tion himself after attending Sun- day morning church services here, 15 miles from the LBJ Ranch. Johnson said he considers the surgery relatively minor, and expects to be in the hospital onlv \a verv few davs.\ After k » » that, he said he will return to Texas for most of the remainder of the year. Johnson announced that he has signed the so-called foreign investors' tax bill — described by its critics as \the Christmas tree bill\ — which carries a provision for voluntary taxpay- er financing of presidential campaigns. He disclosed also that he has vetoed a District of Columbia crime bill. In an accompanying statement he said he dis- approved the measure because be feels that in an effort to ex- tend police powers it would lead to complications and confusion and actually make tbe police- man's job harder. Speaking of his operation, Johnson said the understanding Ion presidential inability which he reached with Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey two years ago will be operative during and after the surgery. This authorizes the vice presi- dent to act in emergencies when the President is unable to do so. Presumably this would be oper- ative white Johnson is under anethesla or not fully recovered from te effects — a period esti- mated at a couple of hours. Humphrey's authority would be limited to meeting emergencies and would not apply to routine business. The President, with Mrs. Johnson sitting alongside, told a news conference at the Freder- icksburg Municipal Center, \I feel fine.\ He plans to fly back to Wash- ington on Monday morning and enter the hospital Tuesday after- noon. At the time Johnson disclosed a week ago last Thursday that he faced surgery, doctors said the type of throat growth he has is common among singers and others who use their voices a great deal. They a^ded that such polyps usually are noncan- cerous but Johnson's will be routinely tested after the opera- tion.

Proponents estimated that it can provide up to $30 million each to the Democrats and to the Republicans for the 1968 White House race although it would not provide funds for les- ser contests. Its supporters argue that it frees the presiden- tial candidates of the need to seek large sums from powerful individuals and groups who might later demand: favors in IflUi'U. * 3^#?%'-\**v •'•''Hi ';<• <~ • ' < ' v : *s *V&.

Romney said Sunday he hasn't decided whether to seek the Republican presidential nomination. And Barry Goldwater said if Rom- ney does hell face a major sell- ing job within the party. The former Arizona senator and 19M GOP standard-bearer put his own position this way: \I wouldn't say that I am against him. But I'm urging him to get out and clarify his position/' Interviewed on the NBC tele- ^iskm-radio program \Meet the Press\ the newly re-elected Michigan governor said be be- lieves President Johnson \would have been beaten this year if be had run.\ And he added he thinks the Republicans have several men who could defeat Johnson.

Both sides claimed they inflicted heavy losses. After more than three hours of combat, U.N. observers ob- tained a cease-fire and the Isr- aeli troops withdrew. • * • A few hours later, a Syrian army spokesman in Damascus j said, shooting broke out on the Syrian-Israeli border and was still going on. During the Israeli strike in Jordan, Jets of both nations clashed in dogfights. The Israel- is said one Jordanian plane was shot down. Jordan claimed it destroyed two Israeli jets and damaged a third. At tte United Nations in New York, Ambassador Muhammad H.

An Israeli spokesman ac- knowledged stiff resistance from the Arab Legion in the town of Samu, one of three ob- jectives in the attack, but claimed the legion was beaten back. He gave Israel's losses as one killed and 10 wounded. Israel announced that tbe raid, said to have been in bri- gade strength, was in retaliation for sabotage forays. Three Isr- aeli troops and an army com- mander were killed Saturday and six wounded in tbe same area where their car hit a land mix:. In New York Arthur J. Gold- berg, US. ambassador to the United Nations, deplored what he called \the large-scale retali- atory raid\ by Israel and also deplored \the terrorist incidents in Israel which preceded this raid.\ Prime Minister Levi Eahkol erf Israel said in a statement that the attack was a \wanting raid.\ He said Saturday's mining incident li was all tbe graver because it came only a few days after the Security Council erf the United Nations completed Ks consideration of a series of out- rages committed by tbe armed forces erf oar northern neighbor, Syria, or by terrorist bands trained and organized in that country and operating with the knowledge and encouragement of the Syrian government.\ • • • • -.', Esbkol expressed determiaa* ! tion to check any attacks against Israeli citizens and add* ed: \We trust that the lesson will not go unheeded in Damas- cus.\ The fighting with Jordan [ boiled up about 30 miles south of Jerusalem in the bulge of Jor- danian territory west of (he Dead Sea.
