the capital itself.
The U.S. mission said this was
an attempt to win a battlefield
victory in hope of insuring North
Vietnam's success at the Paris
peace talks.
Residents fled from their burn-

and communications were unin-

Rockets touched off many fires
in a shantytown area about half
a mile square. Several parked oil
trucks were also set blazing by the
rockets, sending a column of black
smoke over Saigon.
The Viet Cong seized several
major buildings and turned them
into strong points. Vietnamese
rangers tried to knock off the
strong pointsand brought up two
tanks. One tank was disabled by
enemy fire and towed away.
At one point, the Viet Cong
seized an apartment house, trap-
ping marines on the third floor.
The building was set afire and at
least some of the marines escaped.
Fires also broke out in the
northern suburb of Gia Dinh,
which came under rocket attack.
At the day's end, officials report-
ed 19 civilians had been killed and
56 wounded in Cholon and Gia
Dinh. Military casualties were not
given.

WASHINGTON (P) - Pres-
ident Johnson urged Hanoi yes-
terday to substitute construc-
tive work toward peace for
"fantasy and propaganda" at
the Paris conference table.
Johnson pledged at a news
conference that the United
States will "continue patiently
to see whether the Paris talks
shall yield anything in the way
of constructive results."
But so far, he said, "The
other side has been using the
occasion of these talks for ob-
viously very wide-ranging prop-
aganda.
Meanwhile in Paris, the
United States is pushing hard
in the peace talks to restore a
nonmilitary buffer zone be-
tween North and South Viet-
nam. There was a hint yester-
day that Hanoi's agreement to
this might lead to an end to
all U.S. bombing of the North.
The prospects for North Viet-
namese agreement at the mo-
ment seem dim, with the pre-
liminary talks still in their first
stage of oratorical battle.
Ambassador W.Averell lar
riman has been insistently
hammering on the theme of the
demilitarized zone. He has rep-
resented ae re-establishment of
the six-mile-wide arms free
buffer zone as a prospective
"major step forward" which

could produce significant re-
sults.
A US. spokesman was asked
whether re-establishment of
the zone would be a sufficiently
positive North Vietnamese con-
cession'to permit ending what
Hanoi..calls "the bombing and
all other acts of war" by the
Americans against its soil..
Spokesman William J. Jordan
said "the United States would
heartily welcome the re-estab-
lishment of the zone. As to
whether it would be sufficient
to end the bombing that would
have to be judged by the Presi-
dent and his advisers on the
basis of all the circumstances
prevailing at that time."
The Paris talks, bogged down
in a battle of words, recessed
Monday until Friday.
Johnson said the North Viet-
namese have been unwilling "to
enter into serious, quiet dis-
cussion of the conditions for
ending the bombing or any oth -
er matters of substance."
Nevertheless, Johnson offered
no threat to step up again the
bombing of North Vietnam,
even in the absence of any
signs of actionsfromHanoi to
reciprocate in holding down
the pace of the war.
In contrast, there was no in-
dication, either, of how long
Washington's patience would
continue.

WASHINGTON UP) - The Navy said yesterday an oil slick
was spotted five days ago along the homeward ecourse of the
missing nuclear submarine Scorpion.
This would have been two days after the 252-foot vessel
sent a routine message to its home port of Norfolk, Va.,
where it was.headed with its crew of 99.
Capt. John F. Davis, in charge of the Navy's massive
search in the Atlantic Ocean, told reporters: "With the pas-
sage of time we are more ap---- - -

sibilities are." H
"We atach at this time no -~ o s n

Davis said.
He said the oil slick report, b ill

significant observations, doesn't
