SAIGON ()-The aircraft car-
rier Enterprise, nuclear-powered
pride of the U.S. Navy, hurled
jets against Viet Cong targets yes-
terday in her combat debut. Good
and bad luck mingled for this big-
gest of the world's warships.
Sleek planes of the 85,000-ton
"Big E" flew 124 missions against
Red guerrillas and their installa-
tions in South Viet Nam.
But two were lost-one downed
by guerrilla fire and the other
ditched in the South China Sea
after failing in five attempts to
land on the 4%-acre flight deck
on returning from its assignment.
All the four crewmen involved
Lose Two Planes
Two other American planes, a
Navy A-4 Skyhawk and an Air
Force F-105 Thunderchief, were
lost in widespread air operations.

down during raids on two bridges
in North 'Viet Nam's Red River3
Valley, one 35 miles and the othei
50 miles north of Hanoi.
A spokesman'said no parachutes'
were spotted by other raiders andI
the two pilots were believed to
have been killed. Returning crew- 1
men said they spotted four 'sur-
face to air missiles in flight in
the area where the F-105 was
downed, but none scored hits.
American spokesmen announc-
ed U.S. Air Force planes attack-
ed two missile sitess 25 and 401
miles northeast of Hanoi on Wed-
nesday. Heavy dust and smoke
prevented an immediate assess-'
ment of the damage.
Ground operations remained in
a relative lull, with fighting lim-
ited to small, sporadic incidents.
Loss, of the two Enterprise
planes recalled the ill-starred first
war mission of another big Ameri-
can military element, the Guam-
based B-52 jet bombers of the
U.S. Strategic Air Command.
Of 30 of the' eight-engine gi-
ants assigned to the initial sat-
uration bombing of a Zone D jun-I
gle area north of Saigon last June
18, two collided and crashed at
sea, killing eight crewmen.
The carrier operation was rough
in spots and an undercurrent of
agitation<was evident among per-

British Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart met with Soviet Premier Kosygin in Moscow yesterday. He
expressed hope in a speech on Soviet television that an international peace conference could be con-
vened on the Viet Nam war. In Johnson City, Texas, Secretary of State Dean Rusk said that he was
open to Stewart's suggestion and willing to take part in any peace conference at any time.

To Avoid Inflation,
Back War Effort
JOHNSON CITY, Tex. (M) -
President Johnson predicted yes-
erday another record year for the
U.S. economy in 1966, called for
inited support of American forces
n Viet Nam, and repeated what
he has said many times:
"This nation is ready to -talk.
unconditionally, anywhere, with
peace as our agenda."
Speaking by telephone to a
losed meeting o fthe business'
ouncil in Washington, Johnson,
y clear implication, asked for
restraints on wages and prices.
Johnson said confidence is no
onger enough to keep the econ-
omy growing while avoiding in-
flation. There must also be co-
operation among business, labor
and the government, he said.
"Working together, they can
build and sustain an economy un-
matched in the history of man,"
"Thus with confidence in our
future, with cooperation across the
board, with common sense, un-
selfishness, and wisdom, business,
labor and government have sus-
tained the longest peacetime ex-
pansion on record-58 months of
58 Month Expansion
During this 58-month period,
Johnson said, "we have been able
to avoid inflation. Our prices have
remained more stable than those
of any industrial nation in the
The 58-month period coincides
with the John F. Kennedy-John-
son Democratic administrations.
Johnson told the business coun-
cil, an unofficial government ad-
visory group which includes many
of the biggest names in American
business, "we have built a sense
of national confidence because we
have committed our government to
the well-being of every sector of
"We are the government of all
America. We have made it clear
that we support a fair profit, a
fair wage and a fair price," he
"We understand the complex
workings of our society. We know
that if one sector falters ,the oth-
ers will soon falter as well."
While forecasting another rec-
ord year for the economy, John-
son said he and his economic ad-
visers "are ever alert to danger
signs" and if any are sighted
"we will act accordingly."
Turning to the war in Viet Nam,
Johnson said "Your boys, our boys,
fight to preserve freedom and de-
fend justice in the rice paddies.
"They have put the, needs of
their government and their coun-
try ahead of their personal de-
sires and personal hopes. We must
pray, not only for their safe re-l
turn, but to unite behind them
as they unite among themselves.
