Along the border, North Vietnamese troops today bombarded U.S. Marine positions with mortars and artillery causing a reported 47 Leatherneck casualties. Com munis I Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) located just north of the border had forced the B52s to stay well south of the DMZ. But recent American air attacks apparently knocked out the sites. The B52s struck near the Marine base at Khe Sanh Sunday night in support of Leathernecks sweeping through an area said to be housing a new Communist buildup. Officials estimate the North Vietnamese have at least five divisions poised in their fight for the key Northern provinces. Khe Sanh was recently the focal point of heavy fighting. Until the missile threatforced them to stay away, the highflying bombers had been striking almost daily along the DMZ. Each of the planes can carry up to 60,000 pounds of bombs, including giant burrowing blockbusters that explode deep underground to destroy Communist trench and tunnel systems. In the air Sunday, American jets raided the industrial heart of North Vietnam for the second straight day.

Conviction Upheld Mop-up Action Reported United Press international The Russians charged today that an Israeli armored column s u p p o r t e d by paratroopers dropped during the night had reached the Syrian town of Sheikh Miskin, 31 miles Inside Syria, in a major violation of the cease-fire. Israel reported only that scattered firing and small scale firefights marred the truce. It said snipers were being mopped up in captured Syrian towns, that some clashes took place along the Suez Canal with Egyptians fleeing home and that Israeli troops wiped out a band ot Jordanian soldiers which "got into Israel." While the Israeli government turned to the difficult task of rehabilitating Its new won territories and holding them against resentful Arabs and the cautious big powers, a government spokesman gave some results of the six-day war which cost 679 combat dead and 2,563 wounded. He said the Israelis had captured 300 useable Egyptian tanks and vast quantities of supplies in the Sinai Desert and were incorporating them into the Israel armed forces. The tanks were mostly Russian T54s. The destruction of more than 300 Egyptian tanks had been reported previously. The spokesman reported the destruction of four of the nine brigades in the Jordanian army and said that captured Ameri POST OFFICE PROBLEMS are the subject of Rep.

The big park at the southern tip of Lake Pend Oreille was the scene of the Girl Scouts' world roundup In 1965, and Boy Scouts from LDS-sponsored troops gathered here last year. Since then four contracts totaling $576,139 have carried on the work of improving the park in readiness for the world Scout assembly here this summer. Close to half the money was furnished by the Federal Bureau of Outdoor Recreation. Gov. Samuelson slressedthat 90 per cent or more of the Improvements being made in the former U.S. Navy base obtained by the state for a park are of a permanent nalure. Only relatively small details are being added specifically for the Scout gathering. "And the Jamboree here," he said, "will make Idaho known all over the world." Wall fiodgers of the national · Boys Scout organization, in charge of physical preparation of the area, said mosf major work is completed now and only details remain. Rodgers, with assistant Joe Banks, has been at the site since early February. The improvements have Included: --Construction of an outdoor amphitheater of 50,000 spectator capacity. --Construction of a sanded swimming area at Beaver Bay, with a paved access road, parking area and bathhouse. --Added docks, toilet facilities and water facilities, utilizing a former Navy water tower. --Construction of a park headquarters building. --Fertilizing and seeding a (Continued on Pg. 2, Col. 7) NEPH1, Utah (UPI) - Eight persons died early Sunday in a grinding two - car head - on collision of U.S. Highway 91, four miles south of Nephi.

Speaking at a meeting sponsored by the Nampa Local of the United Federation of Postal Clerks, McClure said he believes there are abuses in the postal service field. "I'm not satisfied that second and third class mall pay their own way," he stated. "Costs of providing service are given to us only by the Post Office Department. Anyone knows if you've 'got the only pencil in the game, you're going to win." McClure said he has sought an independent source of information on post offices. "I've written on four occasions to the Post Office Department to ask a study be conducted by some outside agency on the cost, of services, I've been told all four times it wasn't necessary. . . that Negroes Set Fire To Tampa Stores TAMPA, Fla. (UPI)-Hun. dreds of Negroes fought police with guns and rocks and burned * * * Guards, Police Rout Rioters PRATTVULE, Ala. (UPI)About 150 National Guardsmen and state troopers surrounded a tiny house jammed with 25 Negroes early today and ended a five-hour battle of sporadic gunfire. Four men were reported wounded In the fighting which began when snipers opened fire on police after black power leader Stokely Carmichael was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct. Three ofthe wounded were policemen and the fourth was a dog handler Sheriff Philip Woods said. The troops, sent in by Gov. Larleen Wallace with orders to shoot to kill ll attacked, surrounded the concrete block house in the Negro community known as Happy Hollow and ordered the occupants out. and looted stores in downtown Tampa early today in a savage protest to the slaying of a Negro youth by police. One officer died of a heart attack ui the violence. At least 14 persons were injured, most not seriously by the time calm returned to the area before daybreak. Gov. Claude Kirk flew in for a two-hour conference with Mayor Nick Nuccio and other city officials. He flew back to Tallahassee as dawn was breaking and said only that he was "disturbed by the events of the night." Fires lighted the skyland and heavy smoke billowed over the city. Sheriff Malcolm Bread announced the 12-block riotarea would remain sealed off and said "any persons congregating In this area in groups of three or more will be asked one time and one time only to disperse and if they don't comply, they will be arrested." In addition to the violence in the six-by-slx-block zone in the Central Park area, Beard said minor violence broke out In heavily Negro West Tampa. they know the cost." Commenting on Postmaster General Lawrence F. O'Brien's suggestion that the Post Office Department be turned over to private enterprise, the freshman Congressman from Payette said the only change In operation that can make any difference is the way the organization is run. "I suspect he really wants to wipe the whole board clean and start over again with a new set of rules, because It makes no sense in any other context," he said. "I think it's safe to say Congress is not receptive to his proposal." The postal workers are attempting to obtain legal status for their unions, revision ofthe Hatch Acl, which prevents Civil Service and postal employes from participating In political activities, and higher pay. McClure told them he realizes "there needs to be some adjustment in pay level. What it will be I don't know yet. "As far as the Post Office and Civil Service Committee (of which he is a member) is concerned, you're in good shape. When it hits the floor of the House, that's a different matter." McClure said this committee has heard a lot of discussion about trying to change the "narrow area" in which a man canprogress in the postal service. "The Civil Service director thinks something can be done In this area, but he doesn't have any suggestions." Speaking frankly, McClure told thepostalworkerstheyhave built some self-defeating factors Into their regulations. "You try to limit all jobs to the same degree of responsl- bilily," he slated.
