Allied Forces Kill 1 Enemy Troops SAIGON (AP) - Allied! forces killed more than 300 enemy troops in four battles in the northeast corner of South Vietnam Tuesday, but enemy pressure on the besieged U.S. Marine base at Khe Sanh slacked off. North Vietnamese gunners who have poured an average of 350 shells per day into the Khe Sanh base, in the northwest corner of the country, fired only 35 shells Tuesday.

There had been some expectation that the North Vietnamese surrounding Khe Sanh would make a major move today to mark the 14th anniversary of the beginning of the siege of Dien Bien Phu, another isolated base whose loss was the last straw for the French. The U.S. Command had no word on action today at Khe Sanh, but there was no indication from newsmen there that there was any unusual activity. About 25 miles east of Khe, Sanh, South Vietnamese infantrymen and armored cavalrymen reported 194 enemy soldiers killed in a two-day battle that ended Tuesday night five miles north of the U.S. Marine headquarters at. Dong Ha. Their losses were 39 killed, 91 wounded and 12 missing.

Tuesday, the issue was not quite clear, Apparently, this excommuni cation has never been enforced in Nevada. Silas ,E. Ross, the senior of past grand masters of Masons in Nevada, and a member of the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite, said that since the turn of the century he has known many Catholics who were members of Nevada Ma sonic lodges. "To my knowledge there nev er have been any excommunications," he said. "The Catholic Church's ban applies all over the world, but only in the Latin countries and southern Europe has the line been firmly drawn." The church's attitude has never been a problem as far as Freemasonry is concerned, Ross said.

The Most Rev. Joseph Green, Roman Catholic Bishop of Reno, was not available for comment His chancellor, the Rev. Charles Righini, said no official state ment had been received by the church here from the Vatican on this question. Tuesday, Vatican officials were working on a statement concerning the church's atti tude toward the Freemasons. Prelates in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith drew up a statement for release and then withdrew it because some church authorities were not satisfied with the wording. Another statement was ordered Sources in the Vatican's press office reported that the first statement said: "The attitude of the Church toward Freemasons is not changed. Nor has any instruc tion been issued on the matter. The statement was drawn up in the congregation in answer to requests for comment on re ports that said the church had quietly dropped its automatic excommunication penalty. Freemasonry, dedicated to the ideal of universal brotherhood has long been condemned by the Catholic Church, which considered it antireligious. Automatic excommunication for masons became a part of Catholic canon law in 1918. weeks. Three miles to the east, U.S. Marines battled for eight hours with an estimated 600 North Vietnamese and counted the bodies of 35 enemy soldiers afterwards. Ten Americans were killed and 23 wounded. The 3rd Marine Division has Its headquarters at Dong Ha, 11 miles south of the demilitarized zone. Tuesday's other heavy fighting was below Quang Tri City capital of South Vietnam's northernmost province, eight miles south of Dong Ha. Fresh enemy units have been reported crossing the DMZ into the area recently. In a battle which continued Into the night, soldiers of the U.S. 1st Air Cavalry Division reported killing 59 enemy soldiers and seizing one suspect southwest of Quang Tri. U.S. casualties were withheld while the clash went on. Other units of the division fought southeast of Quang Tri and reported killing 16 North Vietnamese, with one American killed and 20 wounded. About 80 miles farther south, government infantrymen overran a Viet Cong command post near Quang Ngai City and reported killed 86 guerrillas. A government spokesman said U.S. Army helicopter gun-ships sank 21 sampans carrying Viet Cong supplies near Hoi An, north of Quang Ngai. The Americans are relying a great deal on their planes to keep any major assault on Khe Sanh from getting started. B52 bombers raided enemy positions near the base four times Tuesday night and today. They also struck suspected enemy strong- points in the A Shau Valley, near the Laotian border across the country from Da Nang. Other B52 raids came in Binh Thuan Province, 89 miles east of Saigon and on the central coast southwest of Tuy Hoa.
