Pleased With
War Effort
Back from Viet Trip;
Indicates No Change
In Present Operations
SAIGON, South Vietnam (W)-
Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc-
Namara said yesterday night "the
rate of progress has exceeded out
expectations" in military opera-
tions in Vietnam over the last
year. He suggested the swelling
U.S. war effort will be pursued
along its present lines.
"I saw nothing that in any way
indicates a substantial change in
the rate of operations, the tempo
of operations, or the type of opera-
tions in the months ahead," Mc-
Namara said in a statement on
completing a fourday tour, his
eighth visit to this war-torn coun-
"I saw nothing that indicates
any need for a change in the rate
of deployment of U.S. forces in the
months ahead."
Another B52 raid on Communist
forces within the old demilitarized
zone between the two Vietnams,
offical acknowledgements of the
1i loss of three more American planes
elsewhere, and minor skirmishes
aground marked McNamara's final
hours in looking over a war that
now claims the direct attention of
328,000 U.S. servicemen.
In Washington, Sen. John Sten-
nis, (D-Miss), said U.S. combat
forces for iVet Nam may climb to
more than 500,000 by next year.
Stennis, chairman of the watch-
dog Senate Preparedness subcom-
mittee, said one general believes
as many as 750,000 men will be
needed. Stennis said Congress may
be asked to supply supplemental
appropriations of $17 billion to
cover the rising costs.
Informed sources said adher-
ence to current policy means to
extension of the 12-month tour of
duty for American troops in Viet-
Certain pilots and selected, spe-
cially qualified staff and advisory
officers are called on for longer
service and some combat personnel
stay voluntarily on. But military
commanders and Defense Depart-
ment officials agree that an ex-
tension for the enlisted men would
be unwarranted and would have
an adverse effect on morale.
"I never come here without
being impressed by the morale and
the performance of the U.S. roops,
both individually and collectively,"
McNamara said.
In speaking of allied military
efforts, he said:
"The pressure on the Viet Cong,
measured in terms of the casual-
ties they have suffered, the de-
struction of their units, the 'neas-
urable effect on their morale, has
been greater than we anticipated."
Reports show 41,620 Viet Cong
and North Vietnamese have been
killed since Jan. 1, against 10,633
Americans and South Vietnamese
servicemen dead in combat. A de-
cline in enemy morale is reflected
in part by a rising number choos-
ing to surrender.
McNamara p r a i s e d Premier
Nguyen Cao Ky's government for
its efforts to curb the inflation
that spiraled menacingly last
spring, and the leadership of Brig.
Gen. Nguyen Duc Thanh in pro-
moting the rural reconstruction or
pacification program.
He made this point:
The Vietnam government met it
"very courageously, very wisely,
very forthrightly when it devalued
the piaster" from 73 plasters to
the dollar to 118 last June. It has

been successful. As you know, it
has stemmed the inflation, damp-
ed it down. We are very pleased
with the results, because the risk
of inflation is a leavening factor
affecting the future deployments
of free world forces."

UN Security Council Session
To Discuss Israeli Charges

The U.N. Security Council was
called into urgent session today
to take up Israel's charge against
Syria of open incitement to war.
Israeli Foreign Minister Abba
Eban requested on Wednesday
that the 15-nation council take up

the newest Middle East crisis. He'
charged that sabotage groups were
being sent from Syria on missions
of murder into Israel.
The 12-nation Arab group
charged yesterday that Israel was
seeking the urgent meeting of the

Two U.S. Researchers
Recipients of Nobel Prize

SWENDEN VP)-Two U.S. re-
searchers in cancer were jointly
awarded the 1966 Nobel Prize for
Medicine, crowning a long list of
their achievements and honors
dating back to 1910. The awards
were announced yesterday.
Dr. Charles Huggins, 65, a pro-
fessor of surgery at the University
of Chicago; and Dr. Peyton Rous,
85, a pathologist at Rockefeller
University in New York City, will
share the cash prize of $60,000.
Each will also receive a gold
Huggins was cited for his dis-
c o v e r i e s concerning hormonal!
treatment of cancer of the pros-
tate. Rous was selected for his dis-
covery of tumor-inducing viruses.
In Chicago, Huggins said: "I, of
course, am pleased by this honor
and the news that my hero in
medicine, Dr. Rous, will share the
Nobel Prize in Medicine for 1966
with me, my wife, my family, and
my research colleagues at the Uni-
versity of Chicago."
The awarding faculty of the
Caroline Institue noted that Hug-j
gins' greatest achievements in the
medical field dated to a series
of articles in the late 1930s, which!
later opened new paths for the
treatment of certain types of can-
cer in human body.
Huggins established in a num-
ber of experiments on dogs that
the functioning of the prostage
gland was entirely dependent on
the production of male sex hor-
mones, or androgens, in the tes-

The institute said Huggins also
proved that female sex hormones,
estrogens, could neutralize the an-
drogenic reaction and thereby
bring about atrophy of the pros-
Huggings was the first to intro-
druce nontoxic, nonradioactive
derivates of a known composition
in thehtreatment of cancer and
through this he became a pioneer
in chemothei'apy, the awarding
body said.
The institute, noting that in
1910 Rous discovered the first
virus that evokes malignant,
growths of the sarcoma type in}
hens, said: "The significance ofI
Rous' initial discovery in 1910 has'
been enhanced with every passing
year since the isolation of leuke-
mia virus in mice in 1951, and its
real importance and bearing have
only been comprehended in the
last 10 years."
The institute said it is remark-
able that the Rous virus, previous-
ly believed to be limited to poultry,
has been found to evoke tumors in
a large number of animal species
including mammas.
This started a trend that seri-
ousy shook previous conceptions
and raised an opinion in favor of
virus theory, once the stepchild of
cancer research.

create suitable conditions for
massive aggression against Syria.
They made the charge in ad-
vance of todays meeting which
had accused Syria of trying to stir
up a new war between Israel and
the Arab nations.
Burhan Hammad, secretary of
the Arab group and. member of
the Jordan delegation, said that
thegroup had decided at a meet-
ing to throw its unanimous sup-
port to Syria. The members are
Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait,
Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi
Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Egypt and
Arab View
Hammad said: "In dismissing
the Israeli complaint as artificial
and faked, the Arab group ob-
served that Israel seeks to achieve
two goals: the creation of suitable
conditions for the perpetration of
massive aggression against Syria
and other Arab states, and the es-
tablishment of a calculated atmos-
phere at the United Nations dur-
ing its discussion of the Palestine
question in the Special Political
Committee next week"
The Israeli complaint was based
on incidents along the Syrian-Is-
raeli border. Israel blamed a sabo-
tage group, El Fatah, of Palestine
