U.S. AIR FORCE F-105 THUNDERCHIEFS yesterday attacked
early warning radar stations at Vinh Son. Earlier attacks have
hit radar at Tiger Island and Vu Con, shown here. One plane
was lost in the Vinh Son raid, btit the pilot was rescued.

LOWNDESBORO, Ala. )--Rain-soaked civil rights marchers,

muddy noll near here after 'plodding 11 miles through heavy
showers.

LONDON UP)-Britain will ques-
tion the United States govern-
ment about the use of napalm and
nonlethal gas in Viet Nam and
about U.S. Ambassador Maxwell
D. Taylor's statement concerning
escalation of the war there, British
Prime Minister Harold Wilson
said yesterday.
The Laborite leader, whose gov-
ernment has officially approved:
the' U.S.-Vietnamesefight against
the Viet Cong and its extension
to air strikes on North Viet Nam,
answered critics in the House of
Commbns.
Wilson said Britain wants an
explanation of a remark by Taylor
that was represented here as a
declaration the United States in-
tends to wage "war without limit"
in Viet Nam.
He referred to a speech by the
ambassador before the Saigon
Lions Club Monday. Taylor told
the club no limit exists to poten-
tial escalation of the war, and he
said the United States may enter
the ground fighting directly if
necessary.
Wilson advised uneasy members
of Parliament that English For-
eign Secretary Michel Stewart,
making a round of official calls
in Washington, would raise the
question of the use of gas and
napalm fire bombs against the
Communists.
Stewart said yesterday he had
expressed to U.S. Secretary of
State Dean Rusk "the very grave
concern"felt in Britain and other
countries about the use of nause-
ous gas against Communist guer-
rillas in South Viet Nam .
Meanwhile, the New York Times
reported a U.S. military spokes-
man announcing another Air Force
attack on radar stations at Vinh
Son, said that U.S. planes for the
first time have engaged in un-
planned attacks on North Viet
Nam.
All earlier raids have been pref-
aced by careful photography and
detailed planning. Today's attack
involved planes searching for tar-
gets themselves and so could rep-
resent some "escalation" in the
air war.
Yesterday's principle target at
Vinh Son was an early warning
radar station some 60 miles north
of the 17th parallel. Returning
pilots reported that the radar sta-
tion had been "virtually destroy-
ed."
Also for the first time, no formal
statement on the purpose of the
raid was issued. An embassy
spokesman said only that the at-
tack was "our response to their
continued aggression."

The 12-shot manned Gemini
program, which costs $1.2 bil-
lion, will hold the spotlight again
in June, when the U.S. is to
try its first spacecraft emergence
test, similar to last week's Soviet
feat. Astronaut James A. McDiv-
itt, who will be flying with Ed-
ward H. White, is to at least
partially exit from the craft. How-
ever, Gemini operations director
Christopher C. Kraft, Jr. Indicat-
ed yesterday there was a possi-
bility McDivitt might leave the
vehicle completely as the Russian
astronaut, Alexei Leonov, did.
4 Days Aloft
McDivitt and White are to stay
aloft for four days in a trip in-
tended to provide significant med-
ical and scientific data. It will
also be the longest U.S. manned
space flight so far.
Astronauts L. Gordon Cooper
and Charles Conrad are to mak
the third flight late this year, a
seven-day mission, also to gather
medical and scientific data. Both
tests also will practice the vital
maneuvers needed for the sixth
Gemini flight-the first American
attempt to link the Gemini craft
with another orbiting satellite.
The exercise will involve precise
steering from which the first three
flights are to lay the ground-
work. A total of six rendezvous
missions are planned in the pro-
gram, all aimed at perfecting this
vital. maneuver for Project Apol-
lo manned lunar landing. A two-
man voyage of 14 days also is
planned.
Apollo Program
The National Aeronautics and
Space Administration hopes to
complete the Gemini flights by
the end of 1966 to clear the way
for the first manned earth orbit
flights in the Apollo program.
Apollo aims at landing two men
on the moon in 1969.
U.S. space officials dispute the
current status of the U.S.-Soviet
space competition.
Dr. Robert 'Seamans, assistant
administrator of NASA, declared
"I don't accept the premise we are
behind the Russians. In many
things we are doing, we are well
ahead," while the Soviets "are
doing some things before us. Ours
is an extremely good program."
On the other hand, many space
officials were saying after last
week's Soviet space spectacular
that the U.S. may be up to two
years behind the Russians. These
experts also noted that Russia is
apparently planning an all-out
effort to reach the moon ahead of
the U.S.
Soviet Capsules
It is known that the Soviet space
capsules are larger than the
American ones, while the thrustE
of the Russian launching rock-
ets are many times greater than
the U.S. rockets. Whether this
means the Soviets will be able tc
reach the lunar target first is
doubtful, some experts say. '
The mdst reasonable assump-
tion at the present time is that
the U.S. and Russia are approx-
imately at the same point in the
space race although they are per-
forming important tests and ex-
periments in a different sequence
these experts add.

It was the misadventure that
led to the nickname for yester-
day's ship, the "Molly Brown;"
Officially christened Gemini 3, she
was named after the Broadway
musical, "The Unsinkable Molly
Brown,", in the hope that she
would float the astronauts until
they could be picked up by the
carrier Intrepid.
The shot had an all-star watch-
ing cast.
President Johnson looked on by
television in Washington. Vice-
President Hubert H. Humphrey
was here to give pep talks and
congratulations in person.
Orbit Change
The spacecraft changed its path
on the orbit, gradually dropping
down so it began going around
the world in an almost perfect
circle, from 97 to 105 miles high.
Originally the orbit had ranged
from 100 to 142 miles above the
earth.
Grissom and Young became the
18th and 19th members to enter
outer space. Of these, 10 men and
one woman have been Russians.
Russia was first with a multi-
manned flight when three of
their Cosmonauts went into outer
space last Oct. 16. Five days ago,
two more Russians were shot into
outer space, and one of them
scored a dramatic and historic
first by stepping out of his craft
and floating freely on his own.

order ringed the camp of the
marchers for the third night.
Rev. Martin Luther King, lead-
er of the Alabama civil rights
drive, left the march before it
started yesterday. He went to
Cleveland, Ohio, but planned to
return today.
March leaders said hundreds
more would join the demonstration
today on the four-lane stretch
which starts one-quarter mile
from last night's camp.
King has called for thousands
to march the final leg of the
pilgrimage tomorrow.
Rev. Ralph D. Abernathy, King's
closest associate, also dropped out
yesterday and returned to Atlanta.
There he described the march as
"the greatest demonstration for
freedom in the nation since Ab-
raham Lincoln signed the Eman-
cipation." At a news conference
Abernathy said that after the
march ends Thursday Negro lead-
ers will mobilize voter campaigns
in 10 counties of the Alabama
"black belt."
Abernathy said he plans to go
to Louisville, Ky., for a program
he hopes will raise $6,000 for the
voter drive.
A nun and several priests joined
yesterday's march.
In Montgomery, Police Commis-
sioner L. B. Sullivan at a news
conference appealed to all citizens
to go about their business and
stay away from the demonstra-
tion.
Twelve white and Negro pickets
-yesterday tried to walk on the
sidewalk in front of the capitol.
State troopers kept them off the
sidewalk and city police ordered
them out of the street.
