Support for
Policy Given
But No Aid
Wilson, Brandt Voice
Approval of Tactics
WASHINGTON (R) - British
Prime Minister Harold Wilson and
West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt
both voiced support yesterday for
President Lyndon B. Johnson's
Viet Nam policy, but indicated
that they could not increase pres-
ent aid.
The two were in Washington for
talks with U.S. officials.
Wilson said' his government was
"heavily committed in Malaysia
and in an important peacekeep-
ing role in the Middle East."
Wilson was in Washington for
talks with Johnson, described the
talks as cordial and fruitful. Wil-
son commended Johnson's deter-
mination to resist the Communist
drive on South Viet Nam.
German-U.S. Aid
Brandt-speaking unofficially,
since he is not a member of the
Bonn government-said that West
Germany will help in President
Johnson's plan for economic de-
velopment in Southeast Asia.
In other action yesterday, Unit-
ed Nations Secretary-General U
Thant said he was heartened by
recent developments in the Viet
Nam crisis, particularly recent
statements by Johnson and Com-
munist North Viet Nam Premier
Pham Van Dong.
Thant said both seemed to
agree on the need to recall the
basics of the 1954 Geneva Agree-
ments on Viet Nam. Thant also
warmly welcomed the appeal of
17 non-aligned nations for uncon-
ditional negotiations on a solu-
"I believe this to be a sound so-
lution," he said yesterday. But
Thant ruled out a trip by him-
self to Southeast Asia at this time,
mainly because of Communist
China's firm objection to UN in-
tervention in the problem.
Indian Action
Meanwhile, India's Communist
Labor Movement announced yes-
terday it will send thousands of
volunteers to Viet Nam to fight
alongside the Viet Cong guerrillas
against "American aggression."

p: F
TAY NINH PROVINCE ('A' above) was the scene of the largest
air attack of the Viet Nam war yesterday. Over 200 planes joined
in a 'saturation attack' on what American officials said was a
Viet Cong headquarters located in a forest area. For the first
time in the conflict in Southeast Asia, United States planes from
aircraft carriers joined in the massive raid that was reported
"moderately successful" against Viet Cong ammunition deposits.

By The Associated Press
BOGALUSA, La.(P) - Negro pickets and white counterpickets
marched yesterday in front of midtown stores that negroes charges
with discriminatory hiring practices, bringing a stir of apprehension
from the Louisiana state capitol.
Negro signs read "We don't buy where we can't work." White
picketers' signs read "White man, give this merchant your business"
and "All these natives need is a witch doctor and drinks."

Six secondary explosions during
the methodical bombing and straf-
ing suggested the demolition of
Viet Cong ammunition caches.
For the first time, U.S. Navy
planes took part in a combat
operation within South Viet Nam.
Flying from the carriers Coral
Sea and Midway, they teamed up
with U.S. Army, Air Force and
Marine aircraft and South Viet-
namese fighter-bombers. Ground
fire was light.
Gen. William C. Westmoreland,
commander of U.S. forces in Viet
Nam, had called for a maximum
effort. The armada assembled for
the job exceeded even the most
massive used in the raids against
North Viet Nam, a 220-plane strike
force sent North last Friday.
Meanwhile, a 21-plane force
carried on attacks north of the
17th parallel.
