Destroy Viet
Torpedo Boats
SAIGON - Two United Staten
Navy Skyhawk pilots slashed yes-
terday a flotilla of six North Viet-
namese torpedo boats, perhaps
massed for an attack on United
States 7th Fleet warships, and said
they destroyed four. It was one of
the stiffest such actions of the
war.
The speedy, 50-ton torpedo
boats, which ordinarily cruise
alone or in pairs, were spotted in
the Gulf of Tonkin off the mouth
of the Thanh Hoa River, about 80
miles suth of Hanoi.
Two American ground sweeps
that started Oct. 11 were ended:
-United States Marines wound
up a multibattalion search-and-
destroy operation called Medina in
the southern section of Quang Tri
Province. They said they killed 54
of the enemy and seized 26 sus-
pects. Marine casualties were 34
killed and 225 wounded.
-The United States 9th In-
fantry Division's mobile riverine
force called off a drive in the
Rung Sat Special Zone, centered
about 20 miles southeast of Sai-
gon, from which guerrillas have
harassed shipping between Saigon
and the South China Sea.

ANTI-WAR SPEAKERS set the tone of the Washington mobil-
ization yesterday at a rally held at the Reflecting Pool, seen here
from the Lincoln Memorial. A crowd estimated at 60,000 by police
and 200,000 by rally leaders stretched from the Lincoln Memorial
to the Washington Memorial in the background.
