ROONDUP (Continued from Pa^ One) at 5:38 a.m, yesterday and was investigated by the Hayti Police Department, the Sheriffs office said. Entrance to the lounge was gained through the back door which the thieves forced open, authorities said, • BLYTHEVILLE POLICE RECOVERED a 1962 Chevrolet which was reported stolen Friday night, Police Chief George Ford said today. The vehicle—owned by Tenie Cook—was discovered abandoned Saturday morning about three miles west of Camtheisville and a 21-year-old Blythevilie man has been arrested as a suspect in the case, authorities said. The man will be charged today with auto theft, police said. the bombing, one officer said: "I don't know of any military men who have changed their minds." Some uniformed professionals recalled that, during a four-day Lunar New Year bombing pause last year, American reconnaissance planes spotted trucks and barges flocking southward with an estimated 25,000 tons of war gear—many times the normal movement. They said they fear the same thing will happen now, contending that the supply flow must be interdicted all along the supply route, not just at the bottom of the funnel. Johnson's order comes at. a time when skies are clearing over the North after the months-long monsoon, creating weather conditions for more intensive bombing. Only a few hours before Johnson's speech to the'nation, retired Gen. Maxwell. D. Taylor, a top presidential adviser, declared himself against a bombing pause. "I have always opposed that ... because I think in the long run it would not be remunerative unless there are clear indications which are not apparent now," said the former JCS chairman and U.S. ambassador to Saigon. Taylor said, "I would be always afraid of backing away from an issue such as the bombing because I think it would convey the impression of weakness and uncertainty here at home." When Secretary of Defense Clark M. Clifford was before the Senate Armed Services Committee for confirmation in late Jan- _uary.,..he~ said, "I do jot" favor cessation of bombing of North Vietnam. "Up until now, I have felt that it would be damaging to Our cause," Clifford said at that time. But he indicated the time might come when conditions might change.

It is the type of action that always happens in time of crisis that some Americans do what they think is best for the interests of their country.
