The second Soviet guided mis-

The new arrival pulled within
a few miles of the America's task
group within sight of the Greek
island of Crete. A sister ship
moved at times within 500 yards
of the carrier.
Send Radio Message
At one point, the Russians ap-
parently sent a radio message
over an international frequency to
6th Fleet ships. Seemingly unable
to interpret the message, the
America radioed back what was
believed to be a request to have

Yesterday morning officers said
the America and her task group
of about half a dozen destroyers
and a cruiser generally were hold-
ing to an area about 75 miles
southeast of Crete.
The only sign of any possible
offensive measures being taken
was the loading of half a squadron
of A4 Skyhawk attack planes with
six 500-pound bombs or two air-.
to-surface Bulpup missiles.
On an alert status on deck are
three Phantoms equipped with two
heat-seeking Sidewinder missiles
and two Sparrow homing missiles,
both for air-to-air use.
The task group seemed to be
marking time, sometimes shifting
positions south of Crete merely
to keep on the move.
Censorship placed over news

day was lifted later.

Tries To Lure Moscow
Syria's United Nations delegate
commented that the Arabs would
remember for a long time those
who did not help them.
The Arabs seemed to try to lure
Moscow into greater involvement.
Some interpret the charge of U.S.
and British air support for Israel
as an indication of this. But Mos-
cow hewed to a line of caution,
failing even to report the Arab
charge in its own press in 24 hours
after the charge was voiced.
The Russians must feel more or
less obliged now to make appro-
priate sounds, to condemn Israel
as an "aggressor" and to make
demands on behalf of the Arabs.
If any major nation emerged
unscathed, it was France. But
Arabs know that French popular
sentiment and French-built planes
were in Israel's side. They still'
harbor anger at France for its as-
sociation with Britain and Israel
in the Suez war of 1956.
President Charles de Gaulle
managed to steer clear of a French
commitment this time. His stock
now might rise among the Arabs.
Moscow seemed to find it ex-
pedient to hedge its bets. So long
as the crisis did not erupt into
war, Soviet policy could make
gains with the Arabs.
Supports Security Council
When war came and the Arabs
started taking a drubbing, Moscow
went along with a Security Coun-
cil resolution calling for a cease-
fire. At least for the moment Mos-
cow dropped its insistence that
positions of June 4, the eve of the
war, be restored.
The Soviet Union had problems.
It wanted to maintain foreign
policy gains made in Europe 'in
recent times. Involvement in the
risk of a showdown with the
Americans in the Middle East
would, at the least, bring back the
arctic temperatures of the cold
war and set the Russians back in

CANJILON, (N.M.) UA' - The
New Mexico National Guard pull-
ed its troops out of the search
yesterday for an elusive band of
defiant Spanish-Americans who
shot up a county courthouse and
wounded two officers this week.
About 25 state police officers
remained in the northern New
Mexico countryside, however, seek-
ing to pin down the raiders.
They were believed to have been
members of an organization which
laid claim to hundreds of thou-
sands of acres of land in the
Southwest under old Spanish land
No Longer Useful
"I think the guard has outlived
its usefulness there," said Repub-
lican Gov. David F. Cargo, 39,
concerning the decision to with-
draw nearly 400 National Guard
troops from the Canjilon area.
The sparsely settled area, in-
habited largely by Spanish-speak-

Although the weather over much
of the north was fairly good, the
number of missions was well below
the normal 125 or more. No reason
was given for the decline.
While the air war ebbed, the
U.S. command reported the loss of
the 573rd plane over North Viet-
nam. A Navy Crusader jet was
shot down by Red ground fire
northeast of Vinh.
Field reports to command head-
quarters listed such items as a
clash in the Mekong delta, where
'a few guerrillas were machine-
