    AS DELEGATES TO THE SEVEN-NATION SUMMIT CONFERENCE ON VIETNAM FLEW HOME TODAY (WEDNESDAY) IT WAS REPORTED THAT PRESIDENT JOHNSON OF THE UNITED STATES HAD CALLED ON THE OTHER SIX NATIONS, IN SECRET SESSION, TO SEND MORE TROOPS TO SOUTH VIETNAM TO FIGHT THE VIET CONG. A SIDELIGHT OF THE NOW ENDED TALKS WAS A HUGE ANTI-JOHNSON DEMONSTRATION BY FILIPINO STUDENTS ON MONDAY NIGHT OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY.

    ABOUT 500 STUDENTS GATHERED OUTSIDE THE EMBASSY, CARRYING PLACARDS WITH SLOGANS SUCH AS "JOHNSON THE BUTCHER" AND "LBJ LEAVE VIETNAM AND PEACE WILL COME", AND CHANTING "HEY, HEY, LBJ, HOW MANY KIDS DID YOU KILL TODAY". FILIPINO TROOPS WHO RINGED THE STUDENTS AT THE EMBASSY ACCOMPANIED THEM AS THEY LEFT TO CONTINUE THEIR DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE THE HOTEL MANILA, WHERE PRESIDENT JOHNSON WAS STAYING, AND WHERE A MAJOR CLASH TOOK PLACE BETWEEN THE STUDENTS AND THE AUTHORITIES.

    (IN THE CLASH, THE STUDENTS HURLED STONES AND OTHER MISSILES AT THE TROOPS AND POLICE, WHO RETALIATED BY OPENING FIRE OVER THE CROWD, WHICH HAD SWELLED TO ABOUT 3,000 AND CHARGED IT WITH SWINGING RIFLE BUTTS. SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE INJURED, INCLUDING TWO WHO WERE SHOT.)
