Of Vietnam

War

By The Associated Press
PLEI DJERENG, Vietnam-In
the tangled Vietnam underbrush
it was impossible to see more than
a dozen yards ahead.
Suddenly an automatic rifle
snapped two quick bursts. Two
North Vietnamese soldiers-alone
and apparently lost-dropped dead
in their tracks only 30 feet from
a U.S. column.
The American company cheered
the lieutenant who had cut them
dwn. Capt. Richard E. Ator, Ta-
coma, Wash., the company com-
mander, was less pleased.

"I wish we hadn't killed them,"
he said. "He should have aimed
at their legs to wound them. Then
we could have questioned them.
We want information badly. In
one month our battalion has taken
only one prisoner, despite daily
fights with the NVA North Viet-
namese army."
The American troops were acting
Plei Djereng points up an out-
standing feature of the war in the,
c e n t r a 1 Vietnamese highlands
along the Cambodian border: the
need for intelligence about what
the North Vietnamese are up to.
In Giong Dinh a Vietnamese

woman ignored the crying baby in
her arms. She stared in hatred as
the American infantrymen with
shotguns blasted away at chickens
and ducks. Others shot a water
buffalo and the family dog.
While her husband father and
young son were led away the torch
was put to the hut that still con-
tained the family belongings. The
flames consumed everything-in-
cluding the shrine to the family
ancestors.
The American trops were acting
under oreders: destroy everything
of any use to the Viet Cong along

the main Communist infiltration
route from the delta and Cam-
bodia into War Zones C and D.
Leave the Viet Cong nothing to
eat, no shelter. Remove all civilians
who could give the enemy a help-
ing hand.
The area had been so thor-
oughly dominated by Communist
for so long that pacification, "win-
ning the hearts and minds of the
people" was considered out of the
question by higher headquarters.
The GIs didn't have much stom-
ach for the job. but orders were
orders. The job was done in an

area involving more than 100
square miles.
The scene near the Cambodian
border only 30 miles west of Sai-
gon was part of a new and more
brutal tone in the war.
Intelligence sources and prop-
agandists alike report that such1
issues as land reform, ending of-
ficial corruption and favoritism,
and a better break in general for
the peasants, are no longer vitalI
in the minds of the countrysides
Vietnamese.
"Now it's simply a question of
how to stay alive and hold ontot
what you can for the poor guy1

out there in the rice paddies," a
well-qualified American source
said.
"Our propaganda now doesn't do
much more than question the
VCs' ability to protect and hold
their areas and to say that our
side can," a senior propagandist
said. "We don't promise much else,
except to imply that things are
getting better on the government
side."
Viet Cong propaganda, on the
other hand, has virtually dropped

NFO Offers
New Pact To
Processors
Union Members Join
Picketers; Farmers
Continue Milk Strike
CHICAGO UP) - Labor Union
members joined farmers on picket
lines in Tennessee yesterday as
the National Farmers Organiza-
tion offered four-month contracts
to processors,
At least three plants closed, two
in Nashville and one in Ports-
mouth, Ohio, on the ninth day of
the NFO milk-withholding drive.
Oren Lee Staley, NFO president,
sat dthe contracts would be simple
documents, increasing payments
to farmers by two cents a quart
and omitting the complicated for-
mula for seasonal price variations
and other standard, clauses.
The NFO's campaign seeks to
add two cents to the prices paid
to farmers, now generally eight to
10 cents a quart.
Nashville milk processors were
reported to be planning court ac-
tion to halt picketing of their
plants by locals of the Meat Cut-
ters and Teamsters unions. Both
locals, which represent milk truck
drivers, ordereda an end to de-
liveries.
A sniper's bullet shattered the
windshield of a milk truck outside
the Purity Dairies plant in Nash-
ville while the driver, William
Bruce, headed out to make de-
liveries .to grocers.
Bruce said 15 or 20 pickets, rep-
resenting the NFO and the Team-
sters Union, were near the plant,
but he saw no weapon.
The Scioto County Milk Pro-
ducers Association in Portsmouth,
Ohio, announced it was shutting
down operations. The association
has seven trucks, which collect
about 112,000 pounds of milk each
day from. 150 farms. Four of its
seven directors are members of
the NFO.
Staley, at NFO headquarters in
Corning, Iowa, stated that the
holdout will go on indefinitely if
milk producers spurn the contract
offer.
At the end of the initial four
months, under the proposal, agree-
ments could be renewed for a full
year unless either party gave no-
tice of intention to cancel,
No milk shortage was reported
in Nashville as unionists and
farmers teamed up. But A. J.
Glasser, president of Purity Dair-
ies, said their common front" will
paralyze the whole industry if it
is allowed to continue."
The Pure Milk Association, an
organization of 10,000 farmers in
the Chicago area, reported milk
receipts were 10 per cent, below
normal Thursday. Earlier, they
had. been off as much as 20 per
cent.

Attention on'Other War

SAIGON () -- Violent deaths
swung attention yesterday to "the
other war," the joint effort by
the Saigon government and the
United States to pacify the coun-
tryside and improve the lot of
South Vietnamese civilians.
Communist terrorists surprised
a team of the government's paci-
fication workers sleeping in a
hamlet school 12 miles southwest
of Saigon Thursday night and
sprayed them with gunfire. They
killed five and wounded six.
Eight American educators sur-
veying Vietnamese high school and
college problems on a tour spon-
sored by the U.S. Agency for inter-
national Development-AID-per-
ished with their pilot in the crash
of a twin-engine plane into a rain-
shrouded mountain near Da Nang.
Group Leader
The leader was Dr. James Al-
bertson, 41 president of Wisconsin
State University's Stevens Point
branch. The group was due to re-
turn to the United States in mid-
April.
In the political field the Con-
stituent Assembly which wrote
South Vietnam's new constitution
formally handed it over to the
military government, which is
charged with putting it into ef-
fect.

Election Date
Vietnamese sources said that the
election is tentatively set for Sept.
3 and it is supposed to speed up
the election of a}two-house parlia-

President Johnson referred to it
at the Guam conference Monday
as "country building" and said it
was beginning to take effect.
The American and South Viet-
namese participants at Guam were
reported in a joint communique
to have found that, "the pacifica-
tion and rural development pro-
gram was now beginning to show
encouraging results, despite Viet
Cong efforts to disrupt it by terror
and intimidation."

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN,

States May
Face More
Redistricting
House Bill Would Set'
Limit oni Differences
In District Population
WASHINGTON (A)-At least 34
of the 50 states may have to re-
shape their congressional districts
by 1972, including most of the
states which have redistricted 're-
cently to equalize districts under
Supreme Court rulings.
At least 16 states stand to gain
or lose House seats by the 1970
census, according to present pro-
jections; and half of these have
recently reapportioned.
In addition, another 16 states
would be forced to reapportion
if Congress passes a bill, approved
this week by a House Judiciary
subcommittee, to restrict states
to a 10 per cent population devia-
tion between the la'gest and
smallest districts.
Only four of the 35 states with
more than two House memnbers
stand to keep the same size House
delegation and already fall within
the 10 per cent limit. They are
Arkansas, Kentucky and Mary-
land, which recently have reap-
portioned, and Mississippi which
didn't need to.
Under the House , proposal,
whose principal author is dep.
James C. Corman (D-Calif); states
would have to bring congressional
districts within a 30 per cent de-
viation limit for the 1968 election,
and within the 10 per cent limit
for 1972, after the 1970 census.
Six states curently have de-
viations over 30 per cent. They are
California, 69.4 per cent; Georgia,
31.9; Louisiana, 66.9; Ohio, 34.1;
Washington, 41.2; and West Vir-
ginia, 31.9.

ATHENS Greece (M)-The hunt
for members of a Soviet ring spy-
ing on Atlantic- alliance bases.
swung from Italy to Greece and
Cyprus yesterday. Three per-
sons were reported arrested and
a Soviet diplomat was expelled
from Cyprus.
Reliable sources said one person
had been arrested by Greek coun-

terintelligence agents, but there
was no official confirmation. An
Athens newspaper reported that
officers of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization had arrived
Thursday night to help track down
leads on the spy ring.
In Cyprus, the government con-
firmed that two Cypriots had been
picked up there, and it was be-

lieved they were part of the es-
pionage network.
In addition, authoritative sour-
ces in the Cypriot capital of Ni-
cosia said a Soviet diplomat and
an employe of the Soviet airline
Aeroflot had been deported for
spying on NATO facilities on the
Mediterranean island.
The case broke in Turjin. Italy,
with the arrest of Giorgio Rinaldi,
a parachutist, his wife, and their
chauffeur, Armando Girard. They
were charged with spying for the
Soviet Union.
In Lausanne, Swiss police said
they had evidence the spy ring was
active in Switzerland, and a
spokesman said, "The possibility
of arrests cannot be excluded."
The Cypriots arrested in Nic-
osia were identified as Vikentian
Boutros and David Shahabian.
Boutros was said to work for the
Cyprus Telecommunications Au-
thority at a radio station handling
diplomatic traffic and all overseas
telephone calls. Shahabian re-
portedly was employed by the
British Royal Air Force at the
Nicosia airport.

DETROIT (P)-A U.S. Senate
sub committee will throw its in-
vestigative spotlight on Detroit
next month in a two-day hearing
on wiretapping 'and electronic
eavesdropping.
The probe will be headed by
Sen. Edward Long (D-Mo) who
has issued subpoenas to two re-
tired police officers and at least
six other policemen. The hearing
will be held April 4-5.
A committee investigator re-
portedly has turned up evidence
the police department was in-
volved in bugging and wiretapping
in 1962, 1963 and 1964.
There is no Michigan law
against wiretapping, but courts
have barred evidence obtained
through such eavesdropping.
A committee source said evi-
dence has been uncovered that
scores of telephones were tapped
in Detroit at one time, presuma-
bly to pick up information on
gambling, tax evasion and other
illegal activities.
Police Commissioner Ray Gir-
ardin said one of the first orders

he issued when taking office in
December, 1963, was that there
would be no wiretapping.
"I've met with an attorney from
Sen. Long's committee, and I've
cooperated in every way I can"
Girardin said.
If the hearings indicate there
was wiretapping after he issued
his orders he said, there would be
a trial board hearing for the police
officers involved.
