  • Description

    ON THE LAST FULL DAY OF HIS ASIAN TOUR, PRESIDENT JOHNSON VISITED SOUTH KOREAN AND AMERICAN TROOPS, CONFERRED WITH PRESIDENT CHUNG HEE PARK, AND WATCHED A DISPLAY OF TAEK WON DO - A COMBINATION OF KARATE AND JUJITSU. ADDRESSING MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES 36TH ENGINEERING GROUP NEAR THE NORTHERN FRONTIER, PRESIDENT JOHNSON SAID - "MIGHT DOES NOT MAKE RIGHT".

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON WENT BY TRAIN FROM SEOUL WITH PRESIDENT PARK TO A SOUTH KOREAN ARMY CAMP. HE WATCHED A DEMONSTRATION OF TAEK WON DO, IN WHICH THE SOLDIERS SMASHED TICK TILES AND BRICKS WITH THEIR FEET, ARMS, HANDS, FINGER TIPS, AND EVEN THEIR HEADS.

    THEN HE WENT ON TO CAMP STANLEY, HEADQUARTERS OF THE ENGINEERING GROUP, WHERE MEN OF THE UNITED NATIONS COMMAND, INCLUDING BRITISH ROYAL MARINES AND TURKISH AND THAI CONTINENTS STAGED A MARCH PAST. HE TOLD THEM - "WE ARE GOING TO STAND UP AND SAY THAT MIGHT DOES NOT MAKE RIGHT". THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT AMERICA HAD 200,000,000 OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION. "AND IF MIGHT DID MAKE RIGHT THEY WOULD WIPE OVER THE UNITED STATES AND THEY WOULD TAKE WHAT WE HAVE GOT, AND WE HAVE GOT WHAT THEY WANT, AND DON'T THINK WE HAVE NOT." HE WENT ON - "SO WE HAD BETTER ESTABLISH THE RULE WE ESTABLISHED IN EUROPE WHEN WE WENT IN THERE, THAT NO DICTATOR JUST BECAUSE HE HAS POWER CAN SNUFF CUT FREEDOM AND LIBERTY. WE HAD TO SHOW IT CANNOT BE DONE IN KOREA. WE MAY HAVE TO SHOW IT CANNOT BE DONE IN OTHER AREAS OF THE PACIFIC. WE ARE SHOWING RIGHT NOW THAT IT CANNOT BE DONE IN VIETNAM. IT IS BETTER TO DO IT THERE THAN IN HONOLULU."
    PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S TALKS WITH PRESIDENT PARK WERE DESCRIBED AS INFORMAL AND A JOINT COMMUNIQUE WAS EXPECTED TODAY.
