Today In Washington By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS : WASHINGTON (AP) Senate Labor subcommittee has voted to include about 30,000 farm workers in sugar beet and cane production in the federal Minimum Wage Act but rejected inclusion of another 200,000 farm workers. : About 29 million workers now are covered by the act, which currently sets the houny wage minimum at $1.25. he subcommittee has voted to raise this minimum to $UO in February and to $1.60 by February 1968. The House exempted the sugar industry workers when it passed a bill to expand the act's coverage by more than 8 million workers. The subcommittee rejected an amendment Friday by Sens Harrison A. Williams Jr., D- N.J., and Robert F. Kennedy D-N.Y., that would have changed the House-passed bfi to bring in farms using 300 man days of agricultural labor per three-month period. Under the House bill, only workers on farms using 500 man-days per quarter are included.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield says 30,000 American troops and dependents now in France should be brought home rather than be transferred to other European nations. The United States is transferring the troops because of France's withdrawal of military forces from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the removal of the NATO headquarters from French soil. v Mansfield told the Senate Friday the troops no longer are needed-for the defense of Eu rope and should be brought home to vase the balance *f payments deficit.

One source estimated the depot near Haiphong can hold about 30 per cent of North Viet Nam's oil and fuel stocks. He said the depot covers an area about one mile by two miles in extent, and that while within a couple of miles of the city it has relatively few people living near it. Since this is a vital installation, North Viet Nam's military forces have positioned a thick antiaircraft defense around it. North Viet Nam gets all of its oil from the outside, with much arriving by ship at Haiphong. During the past three months, U.S. Air Force and Navy planes have been smashing at North Viet Nam's oil storage depots with mounting intensity. Such attacks were flown at least 28 days since April 1 with 14 of those days in June alone. Just this week, American fighter-bombers struck at near, ly a dozen oil sites over a three- day span. Most of the targets were north and northeast of Hanoi. Some were close to Vinh and Dong Hoi in the lower section of North Viet Nam.

By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) _ Giant B52 bombers pounded enemy supply areas in the central highlands today as U.S. troops continued two separate, large-scale operations against Communist forces. Elements of the U.S. 25th Infantry Division clashed with North Vietnamese army regulars in the highlands near the Cambodian border for the third straight day and reported killing 53. This brought the Communist toll to 90 for the past three days. About 800 men are taking part in the action begun on May 10 and known as Operation Paul Revere. Meawhile, the U.S. 1st Cavalry (Airmobile), Division's Operation Nathan Hale went into its sixth day in an area about 240 miles northeast of Saigon. Two U.S. Navy planes were shot down by North Vietnamese ground fire. In South Viet Nam, Communist ground troops shot down a U.S. transport helicopter, killing six aboard. Two were wounded infantrymen whom the four- man crew was trying to evacuate. The craft was one of a dozen hit while flying a battalion of air cavalrymen to support the Nathan Hale operation. Two other choppers had to be lifted out of the area by a huge CH47 Chinook helicopter. The others hit were able to make it out under their own power. The battalion was added as the operation went into its sixth in 1963. On the political front, Premier Nguyen Cao Ky celebrated his first year in office with a four- hour visit to Hue, a hotbed of antigovernment agitation. The anniversary actually was a week ago, but Ky held off his visit until loyal troops re-estab lished government control in the city which has been a spawning ground for Buddhist and studenl efforts to depose Ky's military regime, Ky and his chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Cao Van Vien, pinned rank insignia on a group of newly promoted soldiers and handed out awards for valor. The promotions and decorations were given for a major victory over the Viet Cong this week in three days of hard fighting about 30 miles north of Hue. More than 300 Communists — including many North Vietnamese soldiers — were killed. Ky gave the Vietnamese 1st Division major credit for the victory. The division, headquartered in Hue, had been split by the political turmoil. Ky later drove to the Thua Thien Province headquarters and spoke to 200 civil servants. Radio Hanoi broadcast a claim that Vietnamese about 1,500 South and allied troops including 1,255 American servicemen were killed or wounded in engagements since May 16. The broadcast quoting the Viet Cong's Liberation Press Agency said 300 American and 200 South Vietnamese soldiers were killed, wounded or captured in an encounter June 8 Jim McKay is due to start for| tillery and suppor t elements. day and brought to five thej along H j ghway 13 te Thu Dau number of battalions involved.
