SAIGON - Up to 5,000 North Vietnamese
troops backed by tanks overran a South Viet-
namese base yesterday, inflicting heavy losses
and pushing the remnants of the fleeing gov-
ernment forces into a tight pocket, the Saigon
command said. It said half of the 369-man
ranger battalion defending the isolated Dak
Pek border camp 300 miles north of Saigon
and 12 miles from the Laotian border were
either killed, wounded or missing after all-
night human wave assaults. Lt. Col. Le Trung
Hien, chief spokesman for the Saigon com-
mand, said the base was used for tracking
North Vietnamese troop movements.
WASHINGTON - The Senate settled its bit-
ter school busing controversy yesterday voting
for new standards designed to limit court bus-
ing orders but allowing judges to issue such
orders as they see fit. The compromise, adopt-
ed 47 to 46, states that the new limitations in
the bill are not intended to limit the power
of the courts to order busing if this is neces-
sary to enforce the equal rights amendments
of the Constitution. The principal new limita-
tion is a congressional policy finding that pu-
pils should not be bused beyond the next near-
est school to their homes.
SAN FRANCISCO - Two witnesses were
jailed yesterday for refusing to testify before a
federal grand jury investigating a Symbionese
Liberation Army bank robbery involving news-
paper heiress Patricia Hearst. Paul Halverson,
a graduate student, said that President Nixon
has set a precedent by refusing to comply with
court subpoenas. "I am making the same
arbitrary decision," he said. The second wit-
ness, Cynthia Garvey, declared that the grand
jury was not a legal institution and that she
would not cooperate with it.
COLUMBUS, Ga. - Attorneys for William
Calley filed motions yesterday in federal court
requesting all eyewitness accounts of the My
Lai incident obtained in 1969 and 1970 by John
Ehrlichman, former aide of President Nixon.
The motions are among several filed recently
in U.S. District Court here seeking previously
undisclosed government and Army reports con-
cerning the slaying of Vietnamese civilians at

this morning
My Lai in 1968. The defense is attempting to
have overturned Calley's court-martial con-
viction for the slaying of Vietnamese civil-
LAS VEGAS - A convicted killer who au-
thorities said gained his freedom by switching
identities with another inmate has been ar-
rested, the FBI said yesterday. An FBI spokes-
man said Wallace Rhodes, 25, was arrested
near a relative's home shortly before midnight.
Rhodes of Henderson, Nev., had been the ob-
ject of a nationwide search since he was in-
advertently freed in Dallas on May 2. Au-
thorities said he went free after an identity
swap involving three prisoners and at least
two aliases. Prison officials said the inmates
hatched the scheme about a month ago when
Rhodes and inmate Richard Rusk, 24, were
waiting to be transferred to the federal prison
in Marion, Ill., from Ogden, Utah. Rhodes was
to serve a 10-year term for kidnaping, and
Rusk was supposed to wind up in Dallas where
he faced narcotics charges. But the two men
switched places, and Rhodes eventually was
freed by a U.S. magistrate in Dallas.
Former Detroit Mayor Jerome Cavanagh,
hospitalized three times in recent months, has
indicated he may resume his campaign for
the Democratic nomination for governor in a
few weeks. "The doctors tell me that by the
end of May I'll be in sufficiently good health
to be back at work and in sufficiently good
health to make a decision to run or not,"
Cavanagh said. Cavanagh, 45, was admitted to
the hospital (St. Joseph's Mercy) in January
for treatment of hypertension and high blood
pressure. Later this spring he had one kidney
As indicated yesterday, the cool air will
return again today. In spite of the efforts of
the tropical air to the south of us, the polar
air to the north will dominate our weather
if only by a slight margin. Showers and thun-
dershowers will be in our area through to-
night. Maximum temperatures today with
mostly cloudy skies 65 to 70 with minimums
tonight 48 to 53.
