Weapons Found

In Dead Viet Congs' Possession)

U.S. Forces
Count Cache
Marines Wounded
In Action in North
SAIGON (MP)-Government forces
checked over a considerable haul
of Communist supplies yesterday,
including Russian-made rifles and
machine guns, from a two-stage
battle in the deep south that lit-
tered rice paddies with Viet Cong
Six or seven other Marines were
wounded. The patrols estimated
they killed or injured 20 of the
Viet Cong.
The action began about 6 a.m.
Thursday whena government pa-
trol ran into a Viet Cong force
in a swampy area near Bac Lieu,
a city of 14,000 on the coastal
plain that leads to the South
China Sea.
Far to the north, guerrillas
jumped two United States Marine
1 patrols operating in Communist-
infested territory~ outside the Da
Nang air base and one of the
Marines was killed. He had just
obtained a six-month extension of
his enlistment so he could stay in
Viet Nam.
For the second day in a row
there was no announcementhere
of any air raid on Communist
North Viet Nam. But Radio Hanoi
and the New China News Agency
declared there were extensive at-
tacks Thursday.
Dispatches from Saigon report-
ed that no bombing attack against
North Viet Nam had been ;an-
nounced yesterday or today.
But ,in Washington, the alleged
two-day lull in air strikes against
North Viet Nam stirred up specu-
lation that the Johnson admin-
istration may be reinforcing its
new. bid to the North Vietnamese
Communist leadership to get into
talks on ending the war.
A White. House spokesman said
a lack of bombing attacks was
"operation" -- evidently meaning
that it was the result of a mili-
tary decision and not a political
*r maneuver.
,Meanwhile, Premier Alexel N.
Kosyginv said yesterday that in
spite of, the tense situation in the
world he did not think there would
be a nuclear war.
He made the comment to In-
dian journalists who asked him
about the new Chinese nuclear ex-
plosion and Viet Nam.
Kosygin's remarks at a recep-
tion given by ylsiting Prime Min-
ister Lal Bahadur Shastri of In-
dia tended to water down the -So-
viet, line that nuclear war might
erupt from American actions in
Viet Nam.
"Under the present circumstanc-
es, I do not see a direct threat of
nuclear war now," Kosygin said.

Rights Drive To Shift Tactics

Associated Press Staff Writer
SELMA-Martin Luther King,
Jr., anticipating passage of the
federal voting law, is shifting the
emphasis in his civil rights cam-
paign to other problems.
More than anything else during1
his just concluded checkup tour
of Alabama's Black Belt, he dwelt
on what he calls the cancerous.
evil of segregation.
King spoke of voting rights as
he has from the outset of the
four-month old struggle, but no
longer did he beckon his follow-
ers to march on the courthouse as
he did earlier.
He pointed out the chance to
register as voters will make it im-
perative for illiterate Negroes to
learn to read and write. To meet
that challenge, he said, clinics will
be started here shortly to teach
those "Who haven't had these ad-
vantages of an education."
Outlines Problems
King spelled out some of the
other problems his civil rights
campaign will tackle in the weeks
and months to come.n e
He told a predominantly student
audience at nearby Camden yes-
"Negroes are tired of living in
slums and broken down houses.l
They aretired of getting the worst
jobs ... tired of living as share-
croppers and not being able to
own their land . ."
Thus it appeared that the civil
rights struggle is turning now in
thie direction of employment,,hous-
ing and poverty resulting from
one of the first projects, he
said, is finding a way to get fed-
eral funds to put the poverty

Ervin Loses
Bid To Alter
Voting Bill
WASHINGTON (A') - Southern'
senators, charging the voting
rights bill would give the vote to
people who couldn't mark their
own ballots, lost yesterday a bid'
to preserve some of their states'
literacy requirements.
The outcome was never in doubt.
Even Sen. Sam J. Ervin, Jr. (D-
NC), who proposed the amend-
ment, conceded it wouldn't be ap-
"I have nothing on my side but
the right," Ervin said with a wave
at Democratic leader Mike Mans-
field (D-Mont). He added, "I'm
afraid my good friend has got
the votes on his."
Ervin was right, and the amend-
ment was turned down on a 53-14
roll call vote.
It would have let southern states
covered by the bill apply-without
racial discrimination-tests requir-
ing a voter applicant to prove he
could read and write English.
"I don't see how a man can mark
his ballot if he can't read," said
But Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-
Mich) said any literacy require-
ment could be used to deny Ne-
groes their voting rights.
"No matter how fairly it might
be applied .. ." he said, "it would
work in certain areas an unfair-'
ness on the Negro.
"The same tests in many areas
have been applied In the past, but
not as a test of literacy, rather
as a means of excluding Negroes
from the rolls," Hart added.
In five southern states and parts
of two others, the Johnson ad-
ministration bill. would rule out
literacy tests and similar voter
requirements, while authorizing
federal registration of voters.
Production UP*
To New Hihh
tion's April industrial production
moved up' to a record level but
the amount of, increase was con-
siderably' below the average of
recent months, the. Federal Re-
serve Board reported today.
The federal reserve index of in-
dustrial production went up from
140.5 to 140:8. This means that
total output of the nation's fac-
tories and mines was 40.8 per cent
higher than the 1957-59 average.

King charged that the legisla-
