Red Stronghold
LANG SON, Indochina-(/P)-Five
thousand French Union parachute
troops yesterday captured and
wrecked Lang Son, the key relay
point for Red China's supplies to
the Vietminh, in the most daring
4 raid of the seven-year-old Indo-
chinese War.
The red-bereted raiders, drop-
ped in full daylight from transport
planes provided by the United
States, swiftly routed scattered de-
tachments of the Communist-led.

THEN THEY speedily took up
the job of destroying military bar-
racks, supply depots and bridges
that had been battered by French
bombers and fighters for three
weeks. They blew up huge stores
of supplies and ammunition.
' Bridges over the Ky Cua River
linking Lang Son with China
were dynamited and B26 bomb-
ers ripped fresh gaps in the
highways over which the French
say the Vietminh has been get-
ting more than 3,000 tons of
war equipment a month.
The parachutists are not here
to stay. Lang Son, 85 miles north-
east of their headquarters city of
Hanoi, is too deep in enemy terri-
tory. It is 30 miles across the
jungles from French lines. Gen.
Rene Cogny, land commander in
the north, said the men were be-
ingwithdrawn since they had ac-
complished their mission.
THIS DISPATCH did not say
whether the raiders would head
out by air or by land. A French
officer in Caigon expressed belief
they would withdraw through the
jungles. He forecast they would
have to do some hard fighting.
The raid underscores the aim of
Gen. -Pierre Navarre, the new
French commander in chief, to
try to end the war within the
next 18 months.
Vermont Man
Faces Ouster
BURLINGTON, Vt.- () -For
ignoring an ultimatum to answer
.aSenate investigating committee,
Prof. Alex P. Novikoff of the Uni-
versity of Vermont was suspended
from his position on the faculty.
The university trustees gave the
40-year-old professor of biochem-
istry until midnight Thursday to
t consent to tell the Jenner internal
security subcommittee his activi-
ties prior to 1948 when hescame to
the university.
Failure to comply, the trustees
said in their June 20 announce-
ment, would automatically sus-
pend Prof. Novikoff.
Since the issue of the ultimatum,
Prof. Novikoff has remained silent.
Although he testified before the
Jenner committee last April that
he had not been a Communist
since 1948, he refused to answer
committee questions about his
activities prior to that year.

The Reds asked for and got a

clear their position that it was
time for an armistice.

Officers in the area said they

The Air Force put its heaviest
effort yesterday into bombing the
