Sen. Irooke denied
Hanoi visa request

Nine men who came too late and staved too long.
VIENTIANE, Laos (P)- - Sen.
Edward Brooke (R-Mass.), long
an opponent of the war in In-
dochina, was rebuffed yesterday
in his attempt to visit Hanoi to
discuss its need for rehabilita-
The North Vietnamese embassy
advised Brooks that Hanoi of-
ficials welcomed his initiative
but were very busy and had no
time for him in the next few
weeks. He had been waiting here
for a visa, and had hoped to fly
to Hanoi today. Reporters plan-
ned to accompany him.
For several years the Massa-
chusetts .senator spoke out
against the war and sponsored
various amendment to cut off
funds and call an end to the

embassy replied: "Perhaps in a
couple of months."
Brooke is on a fact-finding
tour of Indochina preparing for
Senate consideration of any pos-
sible requests for approval of
aid to the area.
He told newsmen he was disap-
pointed but had not given up the
principles of nondiscriminatory
aid for all Indochina.
"I am not bitter," he said.
"But there were many questions
I wanted to explore, such as their
needs for food, what they intend
to do to bring about an end to
hostilities in Indochina gener-
ally, whether they would accept
United Nations assistance, the
machinery for distribution of
aid, and whether it would be
multilateral or bilateral."
Brooke commented that Viet-
nam aid "is just not popular and
aid to North Vietnam is less pop-
ular." It would be very difficult
he added, for Congress to pass
any substantial aid to Hanoi un-
til his questions are answered.
This week the U. S. Senate
voted 88-3 to bar reconstruction
aid to Hanoi unless Congress
gives specific prior approval.
Brooke said he hoped Hanoi's
rejection of his visit did not
mean that the communications
which had opened between the
two countries had now closed.

Rains swell waters
along the Mississippi
By AP and UPI
A storm system carried more rains into soggy regions of the lower
Mississippi Valley yesterday, aggravating flood conditions from Ar-
kansas to Louisiana.
"We're still sitting on a powder keg," said a spokesman for the
National Weather Service at St. Louis, where conditions improved
during the day. "If we could get a week of no rain, we'd be in good
Up and down the river and across the breadth of its intricate sys-
tem of tributaries, Officials estimated that more than seven million
acres were under water. Some of that was valuable farm land.
Boats and National Guard trucks were used to evacuate families
from their homes. Thousands of emergency workers patrolled levees
and helped with rescue activities along the swollen river from St.
The river, nearing its highest stage in 30 years, was at 49.5 feet
at Vicksburg and expected to crest at 50 feet Sunday. This was a
slight increase over the previous crest forecast of 49.7 feet.
The major threat to Mississippians, however, was caused by back-
water from other rain-swollen streams such as the Yazoo and Sun-
flower Rivers which will not be able to flow into the Mississippi.
Six persons have died in the floods - five of them in Illinois and
Missouri and the sixth in a tugboat accident in the lower Mississippi,
where four persons are still reported missing. The waters have driven
more than 4,000 families from their homes in an area from central
Missouri to the southern tip of Illinois.
The Wounded Knee agreement
also calls for Indian militants to
leave the village and submit to
arrest after receiving word that
the Washington meeting was un-
derway. Means said the telephone
call to disarm may be made when
the meeting begins at 9 a.m.
EST - but added that it may not
be made for several Saturdays.
A meeting is to be held in Wash-
ington next month between Indian
leaders and White House repre-

A SPECIAL SHOWING
of KENJI MIZOGUCHI'S
(TALES OF THE SILVERY MOONLIGHT AFTER THE RAIN)
Like his Japanese contemporary Ozu, Kenji Mizoguchi was a
relatively late discovery of United States film audiences. Now,
since several of his films have been made available in this coun-
try, he has been recognized as a master of the cinematic arts
and Ugetsu stands as one of his finest achievements.
UGETSU: A Distinguished Film by a Unique Artist
"Ugetsu" is a story of ancient
Japan - the late sixteenth
century - when the country ~
was overrun by feudal war
lords and life was cheap. Its
two heroes, a pottery maker
and a peasant farmer, hope
to profit from the incessant s,;.;v;::;;;,: ( :"> ka, .

that the rewards are far less
than the cost in terms of

lence of rape and plunder
