WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Paratroopers and riot police sealed off Hue's two main Buddhist pagodas today and hauled away the coffins of two women who burned themselves to death last month in the Buddhist struggle against Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's government. Ky's men threw up barbed- wire barriers in front of the Dieu De and To Dam pagodas to prevent the Buddhists from holding a public funeral — and probably an antigovernment demonstration - in defiance ol a ban by the progovernment mayor and provincial chief, Lt. Col. Phan Van Khoa. The two bodies, of a nun and a 17-year-old girl, had been kept in the Dieu De pagoda since their immolations on May 29 and May 31. The nun was the first of 10 Buddhist suicides by fire which failed to arouse sufficient public horror to bring down Ky's government. Three Buddhist monks and about 20 soldiers of dubious loyalty also were arrested in the northern Buddhist stronghold, which Ky's forces seized two weeks ago after more than three months of rebellion. The soldiers detained included j nephew of the Buddhist extremist Thich Tri Quang, now under arrest in a Saigon clinic where he continued a protest fast for the 17th day. Officials said the monk's kinsman provided the Buddhist struggle movement In Hue with arms from the stocks of the Vietnamese army's 1st Division. U.S. troops fought the Communists at two points in the central highlands. No major South Vietnamese fighting was reported. Eight more Reds were reported killed in Operation Nathan Hale near the coast 240 miles northeast of Saigon when U.S. 1st Air Cavalrymen drew about 150 North Vietnamese regulars into a fight. The losses raised the enemy toll to 347 killed since Monday. Inland, the 25th Infantry Division killed 15 of the enemy in an encounter with a Communist force of about 150 near Pleiku The Tropic Lightning Division's kill figure since it began Operation Paul Revere May 10 rose to 425, the U.S. command reported.

Ark- High pressure over Kentucky continues to extend its shower depressing effects into Arkansas. Some light showers did occur in central and south Arkansas yesterday afternoon. Only three of the state's reporting stations, Little Rock, Pine Bluff and Clarendon, recorded measurable rain and neither one of these stations received over .2 of an inch. Yesterday's highs ranged from 84 at Fayetteville to 98 at Judsonia. Overnight lows were in the 60s. The five-day forecast, 6 a.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. next Thursday, calls for temperatures to average four degrees below normal in southwest Arkansas to four degrees above normal in northeast Arkansas. Only minor day-to-day changes. Normal high 88 to 93. Normal low 66 to 71. Rain will average Vt inch or less as scattered thundershowers most likely about the middle of next week. The forecast of 10 to 20 percent shower probability should not delude anyone into thinkinj optimistically about receiving «howers. This is still a very slim chance of any one locality receiving rain.

S. mili- ;ary establishment when 6,000 skilled and unskilled Vietnamese workers of the huge American construction combine went on strike in the Saigon area for iiigher wages. The walkout by workers of the Raymond-Morrison- Knudsen consortium affected such high- priority jobs as the expansion of Saigon's overcrowded port facilities and the busy Tan Son Nhut Airport outside the city. A company spokesman said the workers, whose wages range from 7 to 70 cents an hour, asked for increases matching promised by the government the raises of 20 to 30 per cent promised by the government last Saturday for civil servants and military men. He said the combine had offered 20 to 55 per cent, but the new pay scheduled must be approved by the Civilian Manpower Commission, the Joint Economic Council and the Vietnamese administrator of labor. Under the pressure of war and the U.S. military buildup prices have climbed 55 per cen n the past year, lacing serious burdens on the average Vietnamese. a) active political candidates; b) other well - known politicians; or c) people known to represent pecific causes or socio-political rends. RIOT (Continued from Page One) tested that the priest was a "man of God," the officer snapped,. "I'll P«* him with his God." At an angry rally in a church after the gassing, King called a night march in protest of the police action. However, the column of some 600 was kept within the Nr^jro sector, despite cries of "downtown" from the ranks. • More than 150 police officers stood guard at fiie courthouse during the late night march. It never came their way. Spectators at the tear gas at aek included John Doar, chief of the Justice Department's dv- 1 rights division, who bad con erred with Mayor Stanley Mat thews earlier about allowing ents to be pitched. Mayor Matthews denied reports that he once said the march could use the schoo grounds or a city park as a ten site.

Any of these types can apparently produce temporary demen- ia in the normal, red • blooded, act-conscious American, who, acking valid information to upport his prejudice, will either esort to invention or borrow rom the most cockamamie •umor (especially if the rumor iretehds to "details"). Example: I was having lunch me other day with a usually jerspicacious friend who was in own campaigning for office and ;wo ladies, who, to varying degrees, are bright, lovely to look at and nice to have around. So the talk went well. Everybody was in high style and the roast beef tasted all the better for it. Then, at about the point where the waitress enters and says, "Would you like some dessert?' 1 all scripts were thrown away and the plot went haywire. Somebody mentioned James Meredith. Then came the Inside Dope, muddy floods of it. To wit: 1) Meredith is a notorious narcotics addict. Evidence? "He was given ope all the time he was at Ole iss. My doctor told me so." mmm, I wondered, could this dope" perhaps have been tran- uilizers administered to help is poor, brave mystic hold lind and body together? (For the benefit of Martians sentence for attempted murder was: "It ain't my line of work." I have campaigned for years on the principle tiat sanity anc the English language are natural partners — that, if you pay attention to one, the other wil follow in good order. (I believe for example, that "Mein Kampf reads muddy because its au thor's ideas were muddy, anc that the King James version o" the Bible commands respec partly because it is written in eloquent English.) This principle seemed hand somely vindicated after this wild talk had oozed around the table, muddying the nuances o conversation, eliminating al topics finally save that of th< check. Everybody knows hov inspiring conversations abou table checks are. Nothing was really spoiled, ex cept my delight in a good con versation that bad lost its head The experience left me in .

There U hardly room to breathe, and I know we can afford better, but my mother refuses to move jecause Ellis lives downstairs. Ellis Is divorced and has five kids to support. Mother is divorced, too. Ellis is sort of a ladies' man who needs lots of watch ing. My father was a man like that, so I can't understand why Mother would want to make the same mistake twice. When I try to tell Mother we need a bigger apartment she says we can't move because she has to keep her eye on Ellis. How can a 13-year-old girl get her 33-year-old mother to be logical? THE DAUGHTER DEAR DAUGHTER: She can't. So don't try. All logic it useless against "love" and a toothache. So , quit nagging your mother.

Why does a conservativ friend tell me he "knows" Fidel Castro "paid" Lee Harvey Oswald to murder Kennedy? Why does a liberal friend tell me he "knows" the FBI and the Dallas Police Department 'paid" Lee Harvey Oswald to murder Kennedy? . Why does another friend inform me that Billy Graham is a secret lecher? Why, indeed? . I think the answer lies not in any deep - rooted wackiness nor in any basic dishonesty in the American soul.

Act 385 of 1965 also stipulated that the bank have at least $150,000 capital and surplus.
