Tlie pilots streaked in, smashed anti-aircraft sites and let; home with no reported losses. U.S. spokesmen said the dummy planes appeared on the Hoa Lac MIG base 20 miles west of Hanoi which the bombers Wednesday hit for the llth time. Pilots bypassed the decoys parked in plane reventments and blasted a nearby surface-to-air missile (SAM) site. There was no immediate repori of any American planes lost in the Wednesday raiding.

In South Vietnam's la Drang Valley, scene of some of the war's bitterest battles, U.S. infantrymen tattled all day Wednesday against North Vietnamese invaders. Military spokesmen said 35 American were killed and 31 wounded, most of the casualties coming from one company. Darkness fell before American troops could sweep over the battlefield near the Cambodian border and conn! Commiinisi corpses. WASHINGTON (A'Pl)- Presiden! Johnson arranged confe.-entes today with his top strategists and his combat commander on how many more American troops will be sent to Vietnam. Gen. William C. Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam and an overnight guest at the White House, presumably presented his case for 100,000 additional troops. Johnson, however, was not expected to give Westmr'eland that many additional men. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara says 20,000to 30,000 more American (rbops will be sent to Vietnam in Ihe nest three months. Johnson, meeting at mid-day with the National Security Council, planned to confer with Westmoreland and probably McNamara, a member of the Security Council, later in the day.
