Oh man reported from Da Nang that 8 to 12 of the rockets, believed to be 122mm. hit within or just north of the huge U.S. airbase. Another salvo of rockets landed somewhere between 3rd Marine Division headquarters and the I S., naval supply base, which is across the river SAIGON (AP) - At least 30 heavy rockets and a number of mortars slammed into the big military base at Da Nang late Tuesday and early Wednesday after the enemy shelled three provincial capitals and six other towns.

GIVHLVING The Parent-Teacher Association of the Southboro Elementary School will sponsor a "Book Fair" at the school Monday and Tuesday. The event is designed to enhance each child's personal library and arouse a greater interest in reading. The books will be on display during this "book week" in the school library. Mrs. Martha W. Thuss, Southboro librarian, will familiarize the children with the books. The price range of the books will be from 25 cents to $3.

LESSONS FOR CHRISTMAS! Thuc said information indicated the enemy planned "tour days and four nights of harrassment" to set the stage for a major ground attack, with Da Nang the possible target. South Vietnamese officials say the recent upsurge in action in the area around Da Nang and in the coastal lowlands to the south marks the beginning of a "winter offensive." South Vietnamese officials said the attacks Tuesday night on the provincial capitals and towns raised to 68 the number of such violations of the bombing halt agreement since President Johnson announced an end to all attacks on North Vietnam Oct. 31. In the worst of the latest attacks, government headquarters reported 19 persons killed and 20 wounded in Phu Vinh capital of Vinh Binh Province in the Mekong Delta, 90 miles south of Saigon.

Her-shev has advised local draft boards to allow drafted graduate students to finish out their school term before they are required to report for induction, Selective Service headquarters said Tuesday.

Many first-year graduate students declined to enroll even though their 1-A status could make them eligible for the draft at any time. Hershey's new policy was intended to ensure that the students' investment of time and funds for tuition, housing and books would not be lost by the arrival of a draft notice while the students were in the middle of a term, a spokesman said. But the affected students will have to report for induction when their semester, quarter or trimester ends. Hershey's advice, in the form of an advisory to state draft directors, is not binding. But his advice is usually followed by local and state boards. His advisory, dated Oct. 24 and published Tuesday in the Selective Service newsletter, reads: "When college students are ordered to report for induction during a school term in which they are satisfactorily pursuing whole-time postbacca-laureate courses, considera DOWNTOWN.
