SAIGON A)-U.S. jets bombed
4 Hanoi Friday while 5,500 or more
allied troops spread across the
demilitarized zone in an advance
aimed at wiping Hanoi's infiltrated
regulars from the southern half
of that buffer territory.
This was a ground-breaking
move for U.S. forces, but the Unit-
'ed States described the thrust into
the zone as a purely defensive
measure against the buildup there
of North Vietnamese forces.
"It it not in any sense an in-
vasion of North Vietnam," a State

The U.S. Command announced
the Hanoi target, hit for the first
time, was a power plant in a
built-up area only 1.1 miles from
the Communist capital's center.

south of the Red River, which cuts

A U.S. spokesman said he couldn't
confirm it was within the city

Operation Hickory
Operation Hickory, launched by
U.S. Marines and South Vietnam-
ese soldiers at dawn Thursday
from shell scarred positions south
of the demilitarized zone, took
the spotlight in the ground war.
Though they halted at the fron-
tier which divides the six-mile-
wide zone, the operation seemed
to raise a possibility that allied
forces might eventually strike
across into the Communist side
of the zone if not deeper into
North Vietnam.
President Johnson is understood
to have approved the demilitarized
zone invasion personally some days
ago. At his hurriedly called news
conference Thursday, however, he
gave no hint of the military op-
eration, then underway, while re-
affirming that U.S. goals in Viet-
nam are strictly limited.
Soviet Propaganda
Soviet propaganda quickly open-
ed up against the DMZ operation.
The official news agency Tass
spoke of this "new, grave provo-
cation" and warned that Moscow
will actively pursue its policy of

'helping defeat what it termed
U.S. aggression.
Just what this might mean by,

ment in the war remains to be

Egypt Takes Over Po A ogIreiFote

BEIRUT, Lebanon (M--At a
time of rising crisis, Egypt's sol-
diers took over posts on Israel's
frontier from U.N. forces yester-
day and the United Nations hauled
down its flag in the Egyptian-
ruled Gaza Strip.
The U.N. Emergency Force,
which had been keeping the peace
on the border since the Israeli-
Egyptian war in 1956, ceased all
operations. .
Egypt, which says Israel threat-
ens to attack its ally Syria, has
built up troops and armor on the
frontier. Israel has countered by
taking what it calls appropriate
steps along the border, but denies
it plans any aggression.
A dispatch from Cairo said
Egyptian troops had taken over
all the U.N. post along the 145-
mile frontier between Israel and
Egypt. This was confirmed in Ot-
tawa by Canada's foreign sec-
retary, Paul Martin, in the House
of Commons. Canada contributes
800 men to the 3400 man U.N.
To mask further troop move-
ments, Radio Cairo announced
that the Sinai Peninsula was a
"forbidden area" to U.N. forces.
The peninsula, a desert waste,
makes up most of the frontier be-
tween Israel and Egypt.
For more than a decade, these
forces have been standing watch

Pro-Communists Have March
To Humiliate British Leaders

HONG KONG W)-Thousands
of screaming pro-Communist Chi-
nese marched on Government
House again yesterday in an ap-
parent effort to humiliate British
rulers in this colony on Red Chi-
na's doorstep.
At one time 7,000 workers, stu-
dents and bank employes were
shouting abuse at Gov. Sir David
Trench. Some cried "American
running dog Trench" and "Dirty
rat Trench."
They brought notes calling Sir'
David the "mean culprit in racial
suppression of the Chinese," sim-
ilar to protests they had made
Thursday in the first demonstra-
tion outside the governor's office.
This was a reference to police
action against rioters last week
in the teeming Kowloon section
opposite Hong Kong Island. After
police 1 roke up demonstrations of
striking artificial flower workers
the Communists used this to spur
the Chinese to riot.
Except for an outbreak Wednes-
day, Kowloon has been quiet since
last Saturday. The riots broke out
May 11.
Sir David so far has refused
to receive any delegations bringing
protest notes. So the Chinese past-
ed the notes on gates and walls
of government house which had
been scraped clean of notes posted
the day before.
Military guards and police
watched the milling Chinese but
made no effort to intervene. There
was no violence.
The Chinese chanted quotations

from Mao Tse-tung, the party
chairman in Communist China,
and called on the British "imme-
diately and unconditionally to ac-
cept the five demands" made Mon-
day by China's Foreign Ministry'
to Britain.
These demands include punish-
ment of police, compensation to
those injured in the rioting, release'
of those arrested and a halt to all
"racial suppression against Chi-
nese." Britain has ignored the
There has been speculation that
Red China has provoked the riots

in an effort to force Hong Kong
to crack down on Chinese Nation-
alist activities and to prevent the
use of the crown colony for rest
and recreation leaves of U.S. serv-
icemen from Vietnam.
Whatever the reasons, the dea-
onstrations made the Hong Kong
stock market so jittery that of-
ficials again refused to give any
quotations. The jitters also affect-
ed the Hong Kong dollar. Dealers
were listing 5.83 Hong Kong dol-
lars for $1 U.S. for buying and
5.95 for selling, up 10 and 19 Hong
Kong cents since the rioting broke

Dodd Gets 3-Week. Delay
In Senate Action on Censure

mas J. Dodd won a three-week
delay in Senate action on his cen-
sure case yesterday and opened
a new effort to convince his col-
leagues he is not guilty of finan-
cial wrongdoing.
Accepting the Connecticut Dem-
ocrat's plea for time, Senate lead-
ers agreed to put off until June
13 the debate on the censure re-
solution recommended by the Sen-
ate ethics committee.
Dodd said he would use the time

Secretary-General U Thant de-
clared yesterday that despite a
situation fraught with danger of
war between Israel and the Arabs
he had no choice but to yield to
Egypt's demands for withdrawal
of the U.N. Emergency Force from
Egyptian territory.
Moves were under way for a
meeting of the U.N. Security
Council to deal with the situation.
Paul Martin, the Canadian for-
eign secretary, said in Ottawa his
country would seek a meeting of
the Security Council. Canada holds
that the emergency force can be
disbanded only by the General
Assembly, which created it.

politically raised funds to personal
use, and billed both the Senate
and private organizations for
seven trips on official business.
The six-member ethics commit-
tee called that conduct which
"tends to bring the Senate into
dishonor and disrepute."
The Senate had been scheduled
to take up the Dodd case next
Dodd said the delay would not
change the nature of his defense,
but would enable him to present
it more thoroughly.
"It's an arduous task to tie my
defense in to the report andto
every page of the hearings," the
white-haired senator said.
Dodd's new defense move was
a memorandum sent to his 99 col-
leagues, contending there was
nothing improper in the way he
used the $116,000.
In what amounted to a restate-
ment of the stand he has taken
from the beginning, Dodd said:
"My position is that substan-
tially more than $116,000 was in-
tended as a gift to be used at my
discretion. My position is, further,
that the funds I received are more
than offset by what I paid out
to discharge politically connected
debts and to cover unreimbursed
costs directly connected with hold-
ing public office."
Sen. Russell B. Long (D-La),
Dodd's only declared defender in
the Senate, said a New Orleans
laywer named Eberhardt Deutsch
has volunteered to assist the Con-
necticut senator.
Long said Deutsch is at work on
a memorandum contending that
Dodd has been denied due process
of law.
Dodd's memorandum contended
that the $116,000 cited in the
ethics committee report was pro-
duced by testimonial affairs, and
he insisted the money was intend-
ed as a gift to him.
