The marchers' parade permit expired at 6 p. and they left without the caskets. A state truck carried them away.

In Selma, two civil rights leaders called off mass meet-! gress for authority and funds to build a new U. S. Embassy in the South Vietnamese capital. The request may go to Congress today. There is no reason to doubt that Congress will do what the President wants swiftly comply with his request.

IT WAS not known if Mr. Johnson's statement was the extent of the American response to the attack on the embassy.

Fearing the worst, Jeff surrendered himself to school authorities and confessed that he'd ordered the helicopter on the unauthorized mission. A Navy spokesman exonerated the boy, however, explaining that the helicopter was investigating radio interference caused by a metal garage door nearby.

The pilot was exchanging calls with three radio cars on the ground the day before and talked with no one else, the spokesman said. Although Jeff heard the pilot and thought the pilot was responding to his orders, the pilot's replies were simply coincidental, said the Navy. He never heard Jeff, the spokesman said, and never went to San Francisco, either. But he didn't say if Peterson ever got that call. THE TARGETS were all in the area of Vinh, a coastal city about 160 miles north of the 17th parallel and the same distance south of Hanoi.
