The Colombian motion was sent to a working committee for study, on a motion by Chile. . The Chilean move came after delegates from a dozen nations expressed belief the Colombian motion, which was backed only by the Dominican Republic and Uruguay, should be incorporated into a conference statement reaffirming all basic principles of the charter of the Organization of American States (OAS). Diplomatic sources said the section condemning the U.S. action probably would be stricken from the overall resolution. U.S. chief delegate W. Av-erell Harriman seconded the Chilean motion to put the Colombian motion into the hands of a working commission. The Colombian resolution urges the 20 member nations of the OAS to reaffirm the principle of non-intervention. Cooler Co vers .. Lincoln Tent 432-l377.Adv.

There is a suspicion they've gone too far this time, however. There is a wire several inches long in the right thigh of Harry Wilson's leg. Now, Harry says it was put there by doctors the summer between his junior and senior years in high-school. But doggone, you have to believe the TV folks must have done it. Maybe it was Ben Casey or Dr. Kildare or just one of those nurses who were in on it. Somehow, they seem to signal Harry during TV games. Harry comes to play every day. But on television he really comes on, like Thursday for instance when the Steubenville Stomper led Nebraska to a 21-9 victory over Oklahoma before 52,865 fans in Me-, morial Stadium. Rescue Ships Abound When Iceberg Hit Bremerhaven, Germany Ufi The captain of a German trawler which hit an iceberg in heavy seas off Greenland told his home office there is no "acute danger of loss of life."

The company said it has been . in contact with Capt. Hans Neumann, who told them the ship is able to pump off water leaking into the vessel. Wife Charges Draft Dodging San Jose, Calif. (UPI) -Karen M. Wilson, 22, Mountain View, Calif., filed a complaint in superior court asking that her six-month marriage to Kenneth Wilson, 22, be annuled on grounds of fraud. She charged her husband married her only to dodge the draft. The couple was married last summer just before President Johnson withdrew draft exemptions for married men.

There have been better days in terms of yards gained, -but the way , the 160 yards of hard-earned turf were covered by Wilson Thursday will remain forever etched in the deliriously happy minds of the Corn-husker faithful who watched their heroes wipe away the final vestiges of the past. It was the first perfect season by a Nebraska team since 1915. Already Coach Bob Devaney had finally erased the prideful need to cling to the Rose Bowl team of 1941 as he has taken Husker teams to three straight bowls. A fourth, at Miami against Alabama, is upcoming. With his team trailing, 9-0, after a fumble-plagued first quarter on this chilly afternoon, Harry led his team on the comeback trail by gaining over half, the distance on a 65-yard march Zambian Power Line Blown Up Salisbury, Rhodesia (UPI) An explosion Friday wrecked an electric power pylon and blacked out the rich copper belt in neighbor ing Zambia. Rhodesias rebel Premier Ian Smith called it sabotage and said it could have been caused by Communists, "Chinese or otherwise." The explosion around 2 a.m destroyed a tower on the line from the Kariba Dam power complex to Kitwe in northern Zambia and interrupted cop per belt supplies. The dam is on the Zambesi Kiver which forms the border between Rhodesia and Zambia. 4 A government statement said electricity supplies to the Zambian capital of Lusaka had not been affected and about 75 of copper belt needs were now being met with pow er generated by coal and from the neighboring Congo. bmith said he was ex tremely sorry to hear of such sabotage" and deplored the damage to Zambia he said "can do no one any good."

Then, in the third period, he unloaded one of the all-time great runs, a 66-yard-er for the touchdown after being trapped by OU defenders. Five minutes later Harry climaxed this unbelievable day by hauling in a 38-yard scoring aerial to post the decisive edge. Perhaps it should have been expected. For it was the televised Minnesota , game last year when the rookie Ohioan turned in a clutch performance by snagging two passes and making a couple of first downs in a tight game.

Both are nuclear-powered. The Enterprise, world's largest warship, and the Bainbridge are the first nuclear- powered surface ships to op erate in western Pacific waters. They joined ships of the U.S. Seventh fleet already in position in the South China Sea. U.S. Navy officials said the arrival of the Enterprise and the Bainbridge is the first step in transferring all four of the Navy's nuclear-powered big ships to the Pacific fleet. The guided missile cruiser Long Beach and the guided missile frigate Truxton are scheduled to join the Pacific armada sometime next year. The Enterprise is commanded by Capt. James L. Hollo-way III. It is the flagship of Rear Adm. Henry L. Miller, commander of Carrier Division Three. The skipper of the Bainbridge is Capt. Hal C. Castle. Harvesting Rice A Navy spokesman said the Enterprise will have Alameda, Calif., as its new home port, The Bainbridge will have its port at Long Beach, Calif. The Philippine government has granted permission for the Enterprise to enter Philip pine waters and use American base facilities at Subic Bay. In ground action, a task force of several thousand American, Vietnamese and Australian infantrymen continued a campaign to protect the rice harvest in a Communist-dominated area 25 miles northeast of Saigon. The troops were also conducting a civic-action program in the area, giving medical aid, food and clothes to peasants of Viet Cong threatened villages. The operation is in its fifth day. U.S. Air Force B52 bombers struck suspected Viet Cong targets in Binh Tuy Province about 75 miles northeast of Saigon. Elsewhere around the country, action against Communists slacked off even further than on the Thanksgiving Day lull. Vietnamese field commanders reported their quietest day of the month with no casualties due to enemy action.

Ap proximately 2,000 German orphans were to dine with en listed men. , Page 2 p age 8 TEN CENTS Will Seek Soviet Terms London UP) Prime Minis' ter Harold Wilson pushed ahead with a concerted diplo matic drive for a world nu clear pact and for a way to ena tne war in Vietnam. Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart flies to Moscow Monday to probe the Soviet Un ion s terms for a world oact 10 nait tne spread of nuclear weapons. At the same time Stewart will seek to get the Soviet Un ion to join Britain and recon vene the 1954 Geneva confer ence which settled the French-Indochina fighting and divid ed the former French Colony mio camDoaia, Laos and North and South Vietnam. Britain and the Soviet Union were cochairmen of the con ference. Wilson's aims in the field of nuclear weapons were dis closed by high British sources. His preparations for Vietnam peace soundings were announced by the prime nun ister in the House of Commons. For British Ears When Wilson goes to Washington to meet President Johnson Dec. 17, he hopes to be able to put before the President the first results of British probings of Moscow's views. In Johnson City, Tex., the White House regarded Wilson's remarks on Vietnam were meant for "domestic consumption" to placate British antiwar elements. The administration attitude is that Wilson knows very well where Johnson stands that the President is determined to do everything necessary to halt aggression in South Vietnam but at the same time that he holds himself in readiness to enter unconditional discussions aimed at a peaceful settlement. Change of Attitude Wilson made it clear to the House of Commons that he believes the Communist regime in North Vietnam remains the major stumbling block to the holding of a n y peace conference. He said the peace soundings to be made in Moscow and Washington have the aim of staving off "a major war in Asia, or worse." "In our desire to get negotiations," Wilson said, "we shall ' continue to probe for any change of attitude which can bring the parties to the conference table." He did not say whether Britain plans to raise any new points on the Vietnam problem or make any new proposals on how the conflict could be ended. -Dominican Rebels Were 'Powerless' Washington (UPI)-A former captain in the rebel forces in the Dominican Republic says they were "powerless" and virtually without arms and ammunition at one point last summer. According to Juan Isidro Tapia Adames, the 16,000-man inter-American peace force present on the island could easily have overpowered the rebels last June in the small sector they held in downtown Santo Domingo. Adames testified before the Senate internal security subcommittee last month in Miami. His testimony was just made public.

New Stock Christmas record albums at Walt Music, 1140 "0."-Adv 'Body Counts' At Issue Guideline Of Success Questioned By JOHN T.WHEELER Saigon iffi How accurate are announced claims of Viet Cong killed in battle in Vietnam? Why are such figures as enemy body counts used at all? These questions are being raised anew in the wake of the bloody la Drang VaUey Dauies. The validity of Saigon and Washington announcements of the enemy dead has been ques tioned oy Dotn u.s. officers and correspondents in the field. In some cases in the past the counts have unquestionably been inaccurate and frequently they appear inflated. Some U.S. officers warn that the statistics, even when accurate, can be misleading. New Guideline The loss of a town, the break-through of an opponent's defensive positions, the crossing of a key river defense line, the failure of a massive attack to carry these were some of the guide-lues in past wars. Despite its escalation to a full-scale war, the Vietnamese conflict still is essentially a battle for the allegiance of people and the destruction of oposing forces. Although . north Vietnamese units are operating in up to divisional fitrength, they basically are ob serving the rules of guerrilla war: Strike when you are certain of success, retreat when confronted with a superior force. The mere holding of terrain can mean .nothing. A body count has been practiced from the earliest days of the war here. Ex-President Ngo Dinh JDiem's commanders, fearful of. palace wrath and desiring to show how effective their troops had been, inflated the figures. Pressure Develops Pressure developed for an accurate count, and figures submitted by American advisors became a guideline. Last summer a U.S. officer who helps prepare official statistics for President Johnson and the Pentagon said that during one six-month period the U.S. body count exceeded that of government estimates by several thousand. He said Vietnamese commanders gleefully pointed this out and suggested that oerhaps it might be better to go back to the old system. By this time the United States was vastly more committed to the war. U.S. troops were pouring into the country and there was pressure to show that things were going much better because of the bigger American commitment. Estimates In August, American troops had their first major engagements. Saigon demanded enemy counts quickly. In the field, unit commanders counted the bodies in front of their positions and took estimates from squads and platoons. . In many instances, estimates of spotter plane pilots after air strikes and artillery bombardment were thrown into the "confirmed body count" figure. Some pilots have privately said they were making only rough estimates and were unable to tell in many cases whether the bodies were civilian or military. They also could not be sure whether they were dead or live Viet Cong. But what the men in the field called the confirmed body count was only a fraction of the 1,209 Saigon claimed. Combat units made derisive jokes about the count submitted to headquarters. The current kill ratio , by U.S. command figures stands at just under three Comma-nists to one allied dead. The French average was 2.5 to one in their favor. They lost the war when Ho Chi Minh's biggest bet paid off at Dien Bien Phu. COMIC Dictionary 196S. by Evaa E .
