The incident raised the specter

the two major powers backing op-

posal that would have the effect
of juggling millions of dollars, one
way or the other, in the world's
grain trade.
The Common Market conference
was a step toward meeting a dead-
'line Sunday for completion of
work on the Kennedy Round of
negotiations to lower tariffs and
other obstacles to international
The American proposal, ad-
vanced in Geneva Monday night,
is to let the United States, mem-
bers of the Common Market and
other nations keep control of their
own grain crps and their own for-
eign trade on grain.
The idea is to sweep away an
elaborate structure of quotas and
subsidy controls which the confer-
ees had been considering as part
of an international grain agree-:
ment. It came as a shock to Com-
mon Market representatives. They
favor a cartel like system under an
international treaty to share
markets and regulate price sup-
ports for farmers.
Jean Rey, the Common Market's
chief negotiator in Geneva, re-
ported behind closed doors to a
meeting of his organization's
council, a cabinet minister or his
representative from each of the
member countries-France, West
Germany, Italy, Belgium, the
Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Rey will get his final instruc-
tions and return to Geneva today.
Negotiators there have agreed that
unless the last issues are settled
by Sunday, there will be no time
to complete the job. President
Johnson's authority to slash Amer-
. ican tariffs in half will expire
June 30.

Several hours later in Washing-

mitted to the Soviets later.
Official government pronounce-

WASHINGTON A') - Congres-
sional hearings on President John-
son's proposal to block a rail strike
showed signs yesterday of expand-
ing into a fullfledged study of the
administration's contention that a
strike would cause a national
Rep. Harley O. Staggers (D-
W. Va), chairman of the House
Commerce Committee, said he was
not convinced by Secretary of
Transportation Alan S. Boyd's let-
ter Tuesday night and testimony
yesterday that a strike "would af-
fect virtually every segment of the
American economy and cause im-
measurable hardship for most
Staggers delivered a tongue-lash-
ing to Boyd because the secretary's
letter was released to newsmen be-
fore Staggers saw it.
Warns Pentagon
The chairman said he had in-
formed the messenger who had
delivered it that the Pentagon
should stay out of rail disputes
unless they want to testify.
He said he might call Secretary
of Defense Robert S. McNamara
to testify on the effects a rail
strike would have on the defense
The possibility of an appearance
by Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark also
was raised after Boyd told Rep.
Brock Adams, (D-Wash), that
Clark had said the President would
have no authority to seize the rail-
roads after the present no strike
order ends.
Reject Union Proposal
The Defense Department, mean-
while, rejected a union proposal
for meetings next Monday to plan
continued rail shipment of essen-
tial military material in the event
of a strike.
"It would appear that a meeting
as you proposed is not now neces-
sary," said V. F. Caputo, the De-
fense Department's director of
transportation and warehousing
policy, in a letter to G. E. Leighty,
chairman of the Railway Labor
Executive Association .
Caputo said the extension by
Congress of the strike deadline
to June 19 made such a meeting
unnecessary now.
"We will continue, however, to
follow closely developments in this

matter, and should they indicate urge pasage of Johnson's proposal

SAIGON (A)-Ellsworth Bunker,
the new U.S. ambassador who
turns 73 today is making a good
first impression on both Vietnam-
ese and Americans.
Sources in the American mission
say Bunker has taken a firm hold
pof Embassy reins since he arrived
April 25.
"He's not afraid to delegate au-
thority-and to find out for him-
self what's going on if they don't
tell him," said an insider.
Some idea of Bunker's outlook
was disclosed in his initial talk to
leaders of the U.S. military and
civilian effort. Bunker listed these

objectives for the United States
in Vietnam:
-A just, durable and honorable
-A chance for the Vietnamese
people to choose freely the form
of government they wish.
-Help for the Vietnamese to
build their own political institu-
tions and a viable economy.
-Demonstrate U.S. obligations
under the United Nations Charter
and the Southeast Asia Treaty Or-
ganization to resist aggression.
--Help develop regional organ-
izations through which Southeast
Asian countries can carry out
economic undertakings and other
forms of mutual cooperation.
Bunker has met Premier Nguyen
Cao, KY several times for conver-
sations described as "very cordial
and warm."
The Vietnamese press has been
generally favorable.

Haiphong yesterday and staged
the first attack of the war on the
Kien An airfield, a MIG base 5%/
miles southwest of the North Viet-
namese port.
A U.S. spokesman announced a
A4 Skyhawk was shot down and
the pilot was missing. The Sky-
hawk was the 536th American
combat plane officially listed as
lost over North Vietnam.

Hanoi broadcast a declaration
that five planes were shot down,
four over Haiphong. It said the
Americans raided "a number of
populated areas and economic in-
stallations" in the city.
One of the American attacks
was the third of the war inside
Haiphong, a city of 400,000 that
is a major industrial center as
well as the chief point of entry
for North Vietnam's seaborne sup-
Briefing officers announced
this target was an electric plant
first hit April 20. This powered a
cement factory described as turn-
ing out 95 per cent of the cement
produced in North Vietnam. The
second raid within the city was
on the cement factory itself April
25. Maps show both these instal-
lations 1.1 miles northwest of the
city's center.

TOKYO (P) - Reports quoting
Peking wall newspapers indicated
yesterday that Red China was
caught up in a new wave of blood
spattered revolutionary confusion
involving hundreds of thousands
of supporters and opponents of
the Communist party chairman,
Mao Tse tung.
Bloody fighting has been re-
ported raging for a period of weeks
in such key areas as the provinces
of Szechwan, Honan, Shantung
and Sinkiang, the latter the site
of China's nuclear installations,
and in several major cities includ-
ing Peking itself.
Reports from the wall posters
put up by Red Guards-sometimes
inaccurate but often on the orders
of the Communist party Central
Committee - suggested that the
forces of Mao and his heir ap-
parent, Vice Chairman Lin Piao,
are trying desperately to crush
those supporting President Liu
Shao Chi and the party general
secretary, Teng Hsiao ping, but
that the resistance remains stub-

born. The reports were relayed by
Japanese correspondents based in

the province was posted in one

WASHINGTON -- A group of
youthful antiwar demonstrators,
who kept an overnight vigil in-
side the Pentagon, showed no sign
yesterday of giving up.
Sixteen young men and women
squatted outside the offices of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff to discuss
strategy as the vigil continued.
About a dozen spent the night in
the corridor, surrounded by gov-
ernment security officers. Normal-
ly, only persons holding special
passes are allowed inside the Pen-
tagon between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m.

However, authorities chose not
to evict the demonstrators Tues-
day night. Instead, they cordon-
ed them off and kept watch over

LONDON (MP-Parliament gave
overwhelming backing last night
to Prime Minister Harold Wilson's
decision to try again for British
membership in the European
Common Market.
The formal application for mem-
bership in the six nation commu-
nity will be submitted to its Brus-
sels headquarters this morning.
The six are France, West Ger-
many, Italy, the Netherlands, Bel-
gium and Luxembourg.
Long negotiations will follow
with President Charles de Gaulle
of France holding the key to the
outcome. He vetoed Britain last
time. If the application is accept-
ed, the British people, their way
of life and their island nation's
place in the world faces profound
After a three day debate the
government decision was approv-
ed by the 630 seat House of Com-
mons 488-62, a majority of 426.

Opponents included members of
Wilson's own Labor party and op-
position Conservatives in rough-
ly equal numbers.
An earlier attempt by Conserv-
ative back bench opponents to
block the bid was thrown out 487
to 26, a majority for the govern-
ment of 461.
First Application Fails
Britain's first application to join
failed in January, 1963, when
France applied the veto. De Gaulle
held that Britain was not suffi-
ciently European - that it still
clung too tightly to a special re-
lationship with the United States.
This time there were hopes that
de Gaulle -might be more sympa-
thetic. French Information Min-
ister Georges Gorse, speaking to
newsmen yesterday after a cab-
inet meeting with the general, ex-
pressed his satisfaction with Brit-
ain's move toward Europe and said
this was what France always had
