SAIGON, Viet Nam (2I)-American B-57 jet bombers rained ex-
plosives yesterday on suspected Viet Cong positions in a bloody fight
at the heart of the Cau Mau Peninsula. The shooting, which started
Sunday, was reported still in progress at sundown.
Among heavy casualties on both sides, six Americans were dead
or missing in the action near Vinh Loc, a region of rice fields and
swampy jungles 130 miles southwest of Saigon.
United States officials said more than 120 Viet Cong were killed
by a land, water and air assault of American-backed Vietnamese gov-
ernment forces. Among them was a Conimunist captain.
Initial reports indicated the government forces suffered more
than 60 casualties, including 16 dead. The twin-engine B-57 Canberras
flew 16 strikes in support of the at-

Amidst an indignant hullabaloo

fense Secretary Denis Healey con-
firmed that the Laborite govern-

the prized British project known
as the TSR-2.
He admitted that an option had
been taken out for the purchase
of the new American F-111, a
craft of broadly similar function.
The TSR-2 had been rated the
showpiece of the British military
aircraft industry.'
It incorporated a complex of
highly sophisticated machinery
designed to make the plane hug
even the roughest terrain and slip
under radar beams to dump a nu-
clear weapon deep in enemy terri-
But the cost, said Healey, was
too vast for the shaky Britain
economy to bear.

But he said the government had

En-lai was quoted yesterday as
saying that only those directly
involved in the Vietnamese con-

He contended that neither Red
China nor Communist North Viet
Nam had any direct role in the
i war, diplomatic informants said.
Ele appeared to be saying that if
the United States wants peace it
must talk with the Viet Cong
rather than with him.
Lingering Hope
Chou's reported statement dim-
med lingering hope among diplo-
mats of getting the Communists
to agree to an international peace
conference on Viet Nam on any
terms that might be accepted by
the U.S.
The Chinese leader's message
was conveyed orally to Secretary-
General U Thant by the Algerian
ambassador to the UN, Tewfik
Bouattoura, who said Chou gave
his views to Algerian President
Ahmed Ben Bella on a visit to
Algiers last week. Ben Bella in-
structed his ambassador to take
Chou's message to Thant.
The message was the first re-
ported direct response Thant had
from any Communist country to
a proposal in mid-February for
seven-nation exploratory discus-
sions on how to settle the war
in Viet Nam.
Diplomats say the U.S. turned
down the proposal in February.
Meanwhile, President Lyndon
B. Johnson is expected to make
a policy speech before the nation
tonight in which he will stress
