    Background: PRESIDENT JOHNSON ARRIVE AT THE BETHESDA NAVAL, HOSPITAL LAST NIGHT (THURSDAY) READY FOR HIS OPERATION WHICH WAS PERFORMED EARLY THIS MORNING.

    THE 37-YEAR-OLD PRESIDENT LOOKED IN GOOD SPIRITS AS HE ARRIVED AT THE HOSPITAL. A PANEL OF LEADING SPECIALISTS WERE STANDING BY READY TO CARRY OUT MAJOR SURGERY FOR THE REMOVAL OF THE PRESIDENT'S GALL BLADDER. AT MIDNIGHT, A FEW MINUTES AFTER HE ARRIVED, DOCTORS MADE A NUMBER OF ROUTINE TESTS TO PREPARE HIM FOR THE OPERATION IN THE MORNING. MRS.
