In, Allendale Sit-i Protests
By The Associated Press
ALLENDALE, S.C.-Thirty-eight, including nine whites, were ar-
rested yesterday in Allendale, South Carolina, as state troopers
and local officers broke up a threatened all-night sit-in demonstra-
e tion at the Allendale County Courthouse.
And. in Philadelphia, Martin Luther King said that "if the
North is not eternally vigilant, it wont be long before the South
runs ahead in race relations."
The persons arrested, in Allendale were among a crowd of about

Labor Wins
By 13Votes
Over Tories
Socialists Achieve
'Breathing Period'
LONDON (P)-The Labor gov-
ernment won a House of Com-
mons confidence vote last night
after an angry confrontation be-
tween Prime Minister Harold Wil-
son and the new Conservative
leader, Edward Heath.
By a margin of 13 votes, Wil-
son's Laborites defeated a mo-
tion introduced by Heath express-
ing no confidence in the govern-
ment and deploring Wilson's han-
dling of the nation's affairs.
The count of 303-290 was an-
nounced to the cheers of the La-
borites, who had been roused by
a stand-up exchange between Wil-
son and Heath.
At one point the two leaders
were on their feet, with the cham-
ber in uproar, pointing their fin-
gers accusingly and in anger at'
each other.
The effect of the Wilson gov-
ernment's triumph will be to give
Laborites a respite, because Par-
liament recesses Friday until late
October. For months th ruling
party has had to be on its toes,
day and night, not daring to lose
a crucial Commons vote for fear
of being forced to resign.
In hs first speech since being
installed as Conservative leader,
Heath introduced the censure mo-
tion. He made Britain's economic
woes the theme and dwelt main-
ly on the way, as he put it, that
Labor since taking office nine
months ago, has undermined world
confidence in this country's abil-
ity to pay its way.,
Wilson more than once hit back
Addressing himself to Heath and
Reginald Maudling, Wilson said
he had discovered since taking of-
fice that the Conservatives them-
selves had planned much the same
type of emergency economic ac-
tion as had been taken by Labor.
Beyond the uproar little that
was substantially new emerged
from the debate.
Chancellor of the Exchequer
James Callaghan forecast that
Britain will, barring accidents, be
back in the black by the end of

he appeared to rule out the need
for devaluation of sterling as one
remedy. But some drastic actions,
Callaghan indicated, might have

credit again, and he listed at leash

SAIGON (P) - A fleet of 30
United States B52 jet bombers
sought yesterday to destroy a sus-
pected Viet Cong base near the
Doxa, a mist-shrouded area in the
central highlands between govern-
ment centers at Kontum and Da
A U.S. spokesman said the
eight-engine Strategic Air Com-
mand craft, flying from Guam,
dumped 500 tons of bombs on
"Viet Cong installations in Quang
Tin Province, approximately 350
miles north-northwest of Saigon,"
in a 45-minute raid.
Air attacks north of the border
included strikes at the Thanh Hoa
railroad bridge, 80 miles south of
Hanoi, and two strings of barges
10 miles farther south.
Thanh Hoa
North Vietnamese gunners shot
down a U.S. Air Force F105
Thunderchief on the Thanh Hoa
mission. The pilot was seen to
parachute successfully, newsmen
were told, but efforts to rescue
him failed and he was listed as
Radio Hanoi declared four of
the raiders were downed.
In the ground war, U.S. Marines
and Vietnamese troops teamed up
for an attack that overran the
Communist - dominated village of
Chan Son, 10 miles south of the
Da Nang Air Base.

U.S. PARATROOPERS examine an area Sunday near Long
Cat on a mission to survey results of heavy bombings by Air
Force B-52 bombers in this jungle area. No Viet Cong installa-
tions were found in the bombed-out areas on this mission.

They killed 25 persons-among
them from three to five noncom-
batants who had failed to heed a
loudspeaker warning to leave-and
captured 80 men suspected of
serving as guerrillas.
Viet Cong ground fire downed
three U.S. Army helicopters in-
volved in the operation, but a
spokesman said there were no
casualties among the, American
or Vietnamese troops. Together
the Marines and the Vietnamese
made up about a regiment-per-
haps 1,500 men.
Farther s o u t h, government
forces were on the move in two
sectors. A spokesman said they
killed 20 Viet Cong in Quang
Ngai Province, 330 miles north-
east of Saigon, and 17 in Binh
Thuan Province, '95 miles north-
east of this city. Government cas-
ualties in both cases were de-
scribed as light.
U.S. and Vietnamese planes
flew more missions against sus-
pected Viet Cong concentrations
and there was a body count on the
result of one raid by two B57
Canberras. Ground forces said the
Canberras killed 60 guerrillas.
Viet Cong Moves
Viet Cong bands staged a flurry
of attacks on outposts in Long An
Province, south of Saigon, and in
one case inflicted extensive cas-
ualties on a platoon of govern-
ment troops.
These were among 26 Viet Cong
actions, mostly mortar harass-
ment, reported in the'Saigon area
over a 48-hour period.
Asked about the increase in
Viet Cong activity near the capi-
tal, a spokesman said "perhaps the
enemy wants to test our reaction."
The B52 raid was the seventh
and most northerly in a series
launched June 18. The U.S.
spokesman said it was carried out
at the request of. South Viet
Nam's government. The Viet Cong
have controlled the Doxa for years.
No Findings
As in most of the past strikes,
however, there was no immediate
finding as to the results. The most
obviously effective was the fourth.
This was a raid July 17 on Mang
Yang Pass, 240 miles north of Sai-
gon, t h a t helped Vietnamese
troops re-open Route 19 from
coastal Qui Nhon to Pleiku, an
inland base, to supply convoys.
The Viet Cong, however, blew
up a bridge yesterday to close the
route again at least temporarily.
Results from the sixth B52
strike, the blasting of a rocky,
sector 35 miles southeast of Sai-'
gon last Thursday, were meager.
In all, three Viet Cong were re-
ported killed and three captured.

Five Americans were wounded
in the sweep. They were hit by
fragments of one of their own
artillry shells that fell short.
In operations related to the war:
-A reliable source said police
agents have broken up a Viet Cong
intelligence network in the Da
Nang area and arrested four per-
-Twenty-one persons went on
trial before a military tribunal in

Wheeler Arrives for Asian Talks

HONOLULU (P)-Gen. Earle G.
Wheeler, chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, declared yester-
day that United States air strikes
reaching within 35 miles of Com-
munist China's border definitely
were not intended to test Chinese
Wheeler arrived here by jet
plane from Washington for a
strategy conference on deploying
50,000 more American troops in
Viet Nam.
President Lyndon B. Johnson
announced last week the decision
to boost U.S. forces there from
75,000 to 125,000 men.

Wheeler went into conference
with Gen. William C. Westmore-
land, head of the U.S. military
forces in Viet Nam, and Adm.
U.S. Grant Sharp Jr., the Pacific
military commander.
"We will be discussing the
problems in implementing the
President's decision of last week,"
Wheeler told the air field news
Sharp said the manpower build-
up of 50,000 men could not be ex-
pected to be accomplished over-
night, and Westmoreland didn't
give a definitive answer on how
long it-will take to move 50,000

more fighting men to Viet Nam..
"But, the buildup will move
a 1 on g rapidly," Westmoreland
said. "That's one of the purposes
of this conference."
Sharp added that another deci-
sion will be made on the assigning
of aircraft necessary for the boost
in U.S. troops.
Wheeler said the 50,000-man
increase in American strength will
help operations in Viet Nam.
"Certainly it will help, there is
no question about that," Wheeler
said in reply to a newsman's
question. "How mtch, it is im-
possible to tell."
Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, the
retiring U.S. ambassador to South
Viet Nam, flew 4here Saturday
from Saigon with Westmoreland.
Taylor flew on to Washington
last night to make his final reports
to the President. He did not par-
ticipate in the military manpower
deployment talks.
Taylor called the boosting of
American forces a "great encour-
agement" to the South Vietnamese
people. "This shows a deepening
of America's willingness to aid,"
Taylor said.

told a House Armed Service sub-
*Vance did not identify the units
and a Pentagon spokesman said
no final selection has been made.
Vance told newsmen the idea is
to pick them from the proposed
realignment of the Reserves to be,
brought about by a merger of
Army Reserve units into the Na-
tional Guard.
The merger has had a difficult
time in Congress. But the deputy
secretary urged that the commit-
tee quickly approve the disputed
proposal and said the Pentagon
doesn't agree with suggestions the
merger be put off.
However, Vance said that the
plan to merge air reserve forces
into the National Guard is being
scrapped' temporarily.
