Air Raids on Laos Supply Routes
To Continue; No War 'Escalation'
WASHINGTON (MP-The United States intends to continue air
strikes against strategic targets on the Communist supply routes run-
ning through Laos into South Viet Nam. But officials yesterday de-
nied, publicly and privately, that there were any U.S. combat activities
over North Viet Nam.
The largest and most recent attack in Laos took place Wednesday,
when an important bridge was destroyed over the Nan Mat River
southeast of the road-junction town of Ban Ban. About two dozen
supersonic jet fighter-bombers, F-
100's and F-105's, swept down on

Johnson is expected to ask for
$55 million to run the agency over
the next four years, with stepped-
up disarmament research.
Noting that four years ago the
United States became the first
nation to establishan arms con-
trol and disarmament agency, he
said its "record of achievement
since has refuted the doubts of
those who questioned whether
there was effective work for such
an agency to perform."
"While the journey toward
peace remains long," Johnson said,
''we have begun to take the first
steps-and we have found others
of the family of nations willing to
walk with us."
The President's letter to House
and Senate was accompanied by
one from agency director William
C. Foster saying:
"The work of the arms control
and disarmament agency has be-
come an integral part of our over-
all national security' . . . arma-
ments alone can no longer in-
crease security; the unchecked in-
crease of these weapons of mass
destruction can only diminish our
