Courier N«wi - iitnrfry, Auffirt «, !96< MORE COMING U.S. Troop Strength Boosted to 290,000 By GEORGE MCARTHUR SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) _ A brigade of the U.S 4th Infantry Division, which won fame in two world wars landed in South Viet Nam today and was immediately airliftet to the central highlands, one of this country's major battlegrounds. The arrival raised U.S. troof strength in Viet Nam to aboul 290,000 men and highlighted a day in which ground fighting dwindled to sporadic and light actions. In the air, however, a U.S. spokesman said heavy strikes continued against North Viet Nam — where Red gunners fired 15 Soviet-built surface-to- air missiles at raiding Amer- can warplanes Friday. One of the most successful raids was a sweep at a 40-truck convoy heading south under cover of darkness. Strafing and bombing attacks set 25 of the trucks aflame in strikes Friday night and early today. * * * The military spokesman said the only fighting reported today was in ithe highlands west of Pleiku; ajid about five miles from the ; Cambodian frontier — an area where some-10,000 U.S. soldiers are hunting the Viet Cong. came The. light clash today when a reconnaissance patrol of the U.S. 1st Cavalry, airmobile, Division hit what was apparently a covering force of North Vietnamese regulars. Details of the action were scant, the spokesman said, but the U.S. forces were pressing on into the area. The 4th (Ivy) Division, based at Ft. Lewis, Wash., is commanded by Maj. Gen. A. S. Collins Jr. It is best known for its D-Day landing on Utah Beach in France in World War II. It also claims to be the first allied unit to reach German soil in that war. In World War I, it fought in the Meuse-Argonne campaign, among others. The rest of the division is expected to arrive in South Viet Nam in the near future. U.S. officials have predicted that 350,000 to 400,000 troops will be here by the end of the year.

Navy planes also attacked an oil depot 45 miles northwest of Vinh on the coast, and a large secondary explosion was reported. Throughout South Viet Nam Air Force, Navy, Marine and South Vietnamese fliers flew 615 combat sorties. * * * In other developments: —Communist sources reported that four American airmen in the hands of the North Vietnamese have condemned U.S. jolicy in Viet Nam and have called for a halt in the fighting.

He averaged about 100 miles a day. Most nights he slept at homes of friends along the way. He had problems with mountain climbing and pavement so hot that his tires stuck to it. He also had a screw that repeatedly came loose which he tightened with a dime because his screwdriver was too big. DeVocht carried a spare tire, pump, tube repair kit, screwdriver, wrenches and a sleeping bag — weight about 30 pounds. He spent about $40. He said, "I'm glad I did it, but I will never try it again." land. —Tran Kim Phuong, South Vietnamese ambassador to Malaysia, described as welcome and "very logical" the proposal of Thai Foreign Minister Thant Khoman that Asian nations take the inititiative in setting up a Viet Nam peace conference. But he said it was "very doubtful" that Red China and North Viet Nam would go along.

Cook, Atty Ad Litem 7-16, 23, 30, 8-6 NOTICE OF FILING OF APPLICATION FOR RETAIL LIQUOR PERMIT Notice is hereby given that the undersigned has filed with the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control an application for a permit to sell and dispense vinous or spirituous liquors for ApKtkottkfHf John R. Sinnock modeled the likeness of Benjamin Franklin from a composite of sketches and the bust sculptured by Jean-Anroine H o u d o n. The marble bust was created from life during Franklin's tenure as ambassador to France and just prior to Houdon's visit to the United States in 1785. Just how Franklin would react to having his portrait on a coin would be speculation, but the records show that he opposed the use of heads of any kind on currency. He proposed the space be devoted to thrift proverbs—something that would give the spender cause to consider the wisdom of parting with the coin. Franklin also bitterly denounced the eagle as an emblem of the United States, claiming it was a cowardly bird with a bad moral character, and he suggested thi turkey to be used instead. The tar key, according to* tanklin, was worthy of the ' loner and the only distinctly American bird. TfcFrcnkJin-libirty Bell hat bow beeema synonymous crer the yean. With respect to Ben's opinion of the eagle, Sinnock tried to omit it from the coin entirely. But the coinage laws of 1873 require an eagle on the obverse of all coins above the denomination of a dime, so the bird was placed to the left of the Liberty Bell but greatly subordinated to it. Here it may be noted that the Franklin half-dollar .is the only U.S. coin to carry the name of a private firm or individual. The firm of Pass and Stow recast the bell after it had been damaged in shipment and the Philadelphia Assembly ordered their names cast on the re- pa i red bell. The designer carried this detail into the final product and, by law, it may not be removed. Sinnock's initials JS are located under the shoulder. *** Cars driven by Herbert Scutt of Dover, New Jersey, and R. L. Wade, Sr., of 1420 W.

The demonstration Friday began in the racially tense area when four groups went to separate real estate offices to picket. When thei demonstrators milled into .Marquette Park.a scenic, recreation area, to form for the march, tfiey were met with jeers,. catealls, curses, rocks and bottles from the white resi-i dents, mostly youths. • More.than 2,000 whites milled around King after he was struck, screaming "white pow- er" and throwing rocks. They also stopped cars which brought the marchers into the area. Residents perched in trees and dropped eggs, fire crackers and rocks on the marchers. The marchers — white and Negro, men and women, priests and nuns — marched slowly and doggedly forward. Some residents stood on their front' porches "taking motion pictures of the scene. When the demonstrators knelt to pray, fire crackers were thrown into tiie kneeling group, and the crowd screamed obscenities' and waved banners. More than 1,200 helmeted policemen, swinging clubs, charged into, the bowling mobs of whites to disperse them.
