Viet Nam 230 Tons of Bombs Dropped on Targets SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) — More than 160 U.S. Air Force and Navy planes staged five raids against military targets and road communications in North Viet Nam today, raining more than 230 tons of bombs against a variety of targets. The largest raid was carried out by 40 United States Navy A4 Skyhawks from the carriers Coral Sea and Midway. The planes dropped about 100 tons of bombs on the Vinh military air field, 160 miles south of Hanoi. This was the second strike against an airfield in the three- month air war against the Communist north. Earlier Vietnamese air force Skyraiders hit the air base at Dong Hoi air field near the frontier. A spokesman did not say whether any Communist aircraft were /on the ground. A U.S. Marine was killed when Viet Cong guerrillas fired on a group of leathernecks touring hamlets just outside Da Nang air base, handing out chewing gum, candy and school books. * * * In two separate incidents in central Viet Nam, Communist land mines killed a U.S. Army Special Forces man and seriously wounded two other American soldiers. A Marine spokesman said an eight-man group headed by a lieutenant colonel went to the Le My village complex with five Vietnamese, including the regional and village chiefs and interpreters. The Marines had no trouble in the first hamlet, but as they entered the second, they drew heavy fire from a house, where an estimated five Viet Cong riflemen were hiding. Attacking the house, the Marines lobbed a grenade inside, apparently without injuring the Red guerrillas. One Marine enlisted man, a scout, ran to the rear of the house to head off any guerrillas leaving the back way. Marine spokesmen said he was fatally wounded by one rifle bullet in the chest. About five Viet Cong ran from the house and the Marines opened fire. One of the Communists stumbled and fell, but got up and escaped with the others. It was believed that a company of Marines was sent into the area afterwards in an effort to track down the Viet Cong. Le My village is near Red Beach Two, where the American Marines made their original landing in force two months ago. It is known as a Viet Cong area. The Marines have been making repeated patrols and have been carrying out extensive psychological warfare' efforts to win over the villagers. * it * The Army casualties from Viet Cong land mines were suffered by U.S. advisers accompanying Vietnamese troops. Two U.S. Army Special Forces enlisted advisers were on an operation in Binh Dinh Province, 300 miles northeast of Saigon when one of the Americans stepped on a mine and was killed. The blast wounded the other American, who was evacuated to a field hospital. In Vhu Yen Province, 230 See PLANES—Page 10.

Francisco Caamano's leftist rebels to help restore peace and national unity. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrerra Friday night was named president of the new group, which called itself a "government of national reconstruction." Imbert described Caamano as "a good personal friend" with whom he was ready to talk at any time. Caamano, on the other hand, claims that his forces speak for the Dominican Republic as its legitimate government. He has said that his rebels will accept no coalition government formula involving the military junta. "We could not do this, not after defending the constitution at the cost of nearly a thousand lives," Caamano said. Other members of the new junta are Julio Pospigo, 61, a lawyer, book publisher and mayor of Santo Domingo in the regime of exiled ex-President Juan Bosch; Carlos Grisolia Poloney, 51, a provincial governor under the deposed government of Donald Reid Cabral; Alejandro Zeller Coco, 41, an engineer; and Col. Pedro B. Benoit, air force officer and holdover from the three-man junta which resigned Friday. * * * Imbert, 44, did not explain why the military junta resigned, but said the new group was appointed and sworn in by Supreme Court President Julio Acuello. Called "/Tony," Imbert is one of two survivors of the band of plotters who ambushed and killed Generalissimo Rafael Leonidas Trujillo in 1961. His stature as a result of the Trujillo assassination is regarded as significant in the loyalist move to broaden the area for a possible agreement with the rebels. Imbert, a longtime friend of Bosch, was instrumental in Bosch's overthrow. He ascribed to the complaint of Gen. Elias Wessin y Wessin and other military leaders that Bosch had been too soft on Communists. . Pospigo's present political alliances are unknown, but some Dominican loyalists attending the swearing-in ceremony in the heavily guarded National Congress building said they considered Pospigo a militant in Bosch's Dominican Revolutionary party. This would add to the loyalists' search for broad support. The leader of the party, Jose Francisco Pena Gomez, bitterly denounced the new regime, however. In a broadcast over rebel radio Santo Domingo, Pensa said General Imbert should not risk his prestige in a "shady deal" against the interests of the Dominican people. He said that no government could exist without the support of the people. ' * * * Businesses in the city have slowly reopened this week but operations are far below normal.

Concern Over Reds' Subversion Produced Decision, OAS Says By BEN F. MEYER WASHINGTON (AP) — Latin Americans said today growing concern over Communist subversion produced the historic decision of the Organization of American States to establish an armed force for use in the Dominican Republic. They said Washington made no attempt to strong-arm them. "There was absolutely nothing incorrect in the attitude of U.S.' officials regarding support for Washington's proposal to establish this force," said Rodrigo Jacome, Ecuador!s OAS ambassador. "There 'was positively no pressure exercised, much less threats, and certainly there were no rewards mentioned." A similar statement came from Chile's OAS ambassador, Alejandro Magnet. "There was no pressure whatever put on me by either side in the conference," he said. Asked Sheik Is Seized, Rioting Erupts SRINAGAR, Kashmir (AP) — Bloody rioting erupted here in Sheik Mohammed Abdullah's home town today when it was learned "the Lion of Kashmir" had been seized by Indian police in New Delhi. Indian police killed at least four rioters in firing on huge crowds of demonstrators surging through the streets. Police vehicles were burned, and an Indian government spokesman said "a number of policemen were injured" in the riots. In New Delhi, an Indian government spokesman said an unidentified U.N. observer, in Kashmir to police the India- Pakistan cease-fire line, was manhandled during the rioting, but was not seriously injured. At least 55 persons were arrested by reinforced police units that patrolled the city. Abdullah's supporters declared a general strike and roaming mobs stoned any bus or shop that did not observe it. Abdullah was sent into exile in south India, presumably because he conferred with Premier Chou En-lai of Red China in Algiers on a tour abroad advocating independence for Kashmir. The state now is divided between India and Pakistan. Romania to Permit West German Fair BUCHAREST, Romania, (AP) — Ignoring objections from Communist East Germany, Romania has opened her fair grounds to a mammoth West German industrial exposition. The fair,. opening later this month will be the first solo exhibit of West German industrial might behind the Iron Curtain. The exposition is part of a West German drive to boost trade with Eastern Europe. Over the past year 'the Bonn government has opened trade missions in Romania, Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary. if had heard of any threats or offers of reward, he replied: "Absolutely not." They and other delegates agreed both proponents and opponents of the proposal worked hard seeking votes, but that thii is a normal and legitimate activity. * * * Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay voted against the proposal. Venezuela abstained Fourteen nations voted for it. . The concern over the spreac of communism was underlinec Frida'y nighTby' a special OAS peace-seeking team which trav eled to the Dominican Republic The five-man group, headed by Ambassador Rfcardo Colom bo of Argentina, reported to j special OAS meeting that Com munists have infiltrated the Do minican rebels. The mission reported, how ever, that it was difficuli to measure the Communis strength. Costa Rica asked the OAS to send a high commission to the Dominican Republic to seek a solution to its political crisis The delegates took no immedi ate action as their meeting wen into the early morning hours but the majority seemed in fa vor of Costa Rica's idea. The United States was the original sponsor of the proposa for creation of the inter-Ameri can military force. Its oppo nents, led by Mexico, said i would resent intervention in the internal affairs of another coun try. They also criticized the Unit ed States for having sent troops into the Dominican Republic whatever the reason. Some o these troops will be absorbed by the OAS contingent when it goes to the Dominican Republic. President Johnson's assertion that hemisphere countries mus not allow Communists to over another country in Latin America as they did Cuba was regarded as strengthening the position of those favoring the inter-American force. * * * The President sent W. Averel Harriman on a quick tour o Latin America to talk to severa key leaders, and in Washington Thomas C. Mann, undersecreta ry of state; Ellsworth Bunker U.S. ambassador to the OAS Ward P. Allen, John L. Topping and other State Departmen Latin - American specialists talked up support. Teodoro Moscoso, former head of the U.S. Alliance fo Progress agency, was sent tc Caracas to present the Washing ton viewpoint to the Venezuelan government. Vice President Hubert H Humphrey conferred with form er President Romulo Betancour of Venezuela, former Presiden Jose Figueres of Costa Rica and of Puerto Rico 4 and Johnson former Gov. Luis Munoz Marin conferred with Betancourt and Munoz Marin when they arrived here. But the circumstance tha gave the United States a basi bloc of 10 or more votes to star on, Latin-American diplomat said, is that there is much more recognition today for the theor that communism is a real dan ger to Latin America and tha the Communist effort is strong er.

However, Edmund Bailee, a farmer who was one of the jurors and voted for conviction, said: "It would have had to be on manslaughter because we could not have come that near to a conviction at all on any higher charge.' Manslaughter carries a penalty of one to ten years in Alabama. Flowers, the state's chief legal officer, said he expects the crewcut Klansman to be called to trial again in the fall te'rm of court in September. Two other Klan members also charged with slaying Viola Li- uzo of Octroi t, Mich., are awaiting trial. The charges against them also have been carried over to the September term. Those defendants are Eugene Thomas, 42, and William Orville Eaton, 41, both of Bessemer, Ala. The three Klansmen also are under federal indictment on civil rights charges. They are free on $50,000 bond each on the federal indictments and $10,000 on the first-degree murder counts in State Court. No trial date has been set on the federal charges. * * * Flowers expressed belief that even though the jury went home without a verdict in Wilkins' trial, it may serve as a deterrent to Klan members bent on racial violence. "They know now that there was one FBI undercover agent in their ranks," the attorney general continued, "and there may be others. They're really going to have to reconnoiter and take inventory." The two jurors who insisted on acquittal were Dan Lee, a Fort Deposit mechanic, and Billy R. Cheatham, office manager for a large lumber fabricator. See ATTORNEY — Page 10. Richard A. Tyson's prayers were answered. His wife and young son were not among the 13 numbered dead today from tornadoes that tore through Minneapolis suburbs—nor even among the 400 injured. But Tyson's trailer at Fridley Terrace was one of 280 mobile homes and more than 200 other residences destroyed when perhaps six twisters ripped into the earth at 24 separate locations to the southwest, west and north of the city during Thursday's supper hour. "There are some efforts today to replace partnership with suspicion, and the drive toward unity with a policy of division. "We will go all together if we can. But if one of us cannot join in a common venture, it will not stand in the way of the rest of us." The President chose the 20th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe for what aides called his first major policy speech on Europe since his inauguration Jan. 20. The Early Bird communications satellite carried the address across the Atlantic, and it was broadcast to the American people. In outlining a six-point agenda of "urgent and unfinished business" for the Atlantic community, Johnson said, "First we must hasten the slow erosion of the Iron Curtain." "We must work toward an agreement with the Soviet Union," he said. "Our firmness in danger has shown that the door to conquest in the West is forever closed. Thus, the door to peaceful settlement is now open." Johnson also repeated a U.S. pledge to work for the right of self-determination of the German people. Germans on both sides of the Iron Curtain, he said, "must be allowed freely to choose their own future." Boats, Planes Continue Hunt For Survivors 3 Are Known Dead In Straits' Mishap MACKINAW CITY (AP) — Boats and planes continued today to look for more survivors of Friday's freighter collision, but rescue workers believed that the seven seamen still missing had perished in the frigid waters of the Straits of Tyson described the moments of terror before he found his family safe: "I saw my trailer and three others picked up by the twister. I saw the roof of a house fly past and hit a transformer on a telephone pole. It was just like the Fourth Of July." Homeowners and rescue workers continued to dig through mountains of wreckage today, fearful that they might uncover new tragedy. One dead child, Gregory Magsam, 4, was found in the cellar of his wrecked home at Mounds ..View Friday. Another 4-year-old, Lori Ann Abraham, died hours after her. mother succumbed during the storm. The child's month-old sister is missing and presumed dead. The damage, estimated by insurance spokesmen at upwards of $10 million, prompted President Johnson to extend wind disaster status—and the hope of federal aid for reconstruction— to the region. Picking up the splintered wood and shattered dreams was a heart-breaking business for many. "I'm kind of glad grandma isn't here to see all this," said Jennie Boll, surveying pulverized homes at Island Park along Lake Minnetonka. Her mother — grandma — Mrs. John Iverson, 80, survived the storm, but died of a heart attack immediately afterward. A neighbor, Roger Latterle, emerged from his torn home with muddy shoes. "My family's all right, and I say to hell with everything else," he said. Many residents strode about with cameras, taking pictures to substantiate insurance claims. The state insurance department established three information centers and companies sent- 40 claims agents into hard-hit Fridley alone. Johnson's references to France appeared to reply to De Gaulle's April 27 speech, in which the general — without naming the United States — stressed his country's independence of Washington and its refusal to accept American leadership. Said Johnson: "The peoples of the Atlantic will not return to that narrow nationalism which has torn and bloodied the fabric of our society for generations. . . "The kind of nationalism which would blight the hopes Tmd destroy the dream of European unity and Atlantic partnership is in the true Interest of no free nation on earth." In listing the erosion of the Iron Curtain as the first of six items of unfinished business, Mackinac. Three men were known dead as a result of the mishap in the fog-shrouded straits, the narrow stretch of water which separates Michigan's two peninsulas. "No one could survive the cold water this long," said Dr. Nicholas Lentini, chief of surgery at Cheboygan Community. Hospital where five injured men were treated. All the victims were member! of the 35-man crew of the U.S. Steel Corp.'s 588-foot Cedarville, a limestone carrier.

"I'm incredibly lucky," said Anthony W. Romys, 49, a Great Lakes seaman for nearly 20 years. Romys said he was asleep on an upper deck of the Cedarville and, awakened by an alarm bell, leaped into a lifeboat.

Second, the President listed working for the reunification of Germany. "The shame of the Eastern zone must be ended," he said.. "It serves the real interest of none." Third, he said "we have a wide range of economic problems to resolve" and declared: "Despite obstacles we will continue to press for greater European integration and a freer flow of trade across the Atlantic." Fourth, he called for a new effort to help the underdeveloped nations. "We are the rich nations in a world of misery," Johnson said, adding this warning: "If we fail to help now, then some day the tides of unrest will be surging along our own coasts. In fact, they already are there." Fifth, the President said: "We, must work out more effective forms of common defense. All Atlantic nations who wish to do so have a right to share in collective nuclear defense, while halting the spread of nuclear weapons."

Six Nations Fail to Agree BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) — The six European Common Market nations have still not agreed on a proposal for a world trade agreement on cereals, due May 17 at the Kennedy Round of trade talks in Geneva. The controversy centers on a minimum import price, which the market's executive commission wants to fix at about 5 to 10 per cent above the present world market price. It argues that such a policy would enable underdeveloped nations to take part in world trade. West Germany wants to maintain the present world market price, at which major exporters like the United States and Canada sell. France wants the preference price set at 20 to 25 per cent higher than the world market rate. reported in the low 40s. The collision brought tragedy for a second time within seven years to the Lake Huron port town of Rogers City, Mich. The freighter Carl D. Bradley, a sister ship of the Cedarville, broke in half in a furious Lake Michigan storm and lost -all but two of her 35-man crew Nov. 19, 1958. Most were Rogers City men. . The Cedarvllle's three dead were wheelsman Stanley Haske, 36, father of five children; Edmund H. Jungman, 51, deck watchman, father of three, and Reinhold S. Radtke, 48, third engineer, father of seven. Both Haske and Radtke lived in Rogers City. Jungman lived In the inland town of Frederic- One of the missing men lived in Petersburg, while the other six were from Rogers City. The Bradley Transportation Co. of Rogers City operated both the Cedarville and the Bradley for U.S. Steel. The Cedarville, bound for Gary, Ind., with a limestone cargo, and the Topdalafjord, heading for Port Arthur, Ont.. for a grain shipment, smashed together at 9:55 a.m. Fog was so thick that visibility was reported at barely 50 feet. The straits were reported calm at the time. The Cedarville's plunge to the bottom of 80 or 90 feet of water came quickly. A spokesman for the Mackinaw Bridge Authority said the Cedarville sent a radio "May Day" distress call at 10:10 a.m. and she sank at 10:19. The TopdalsfJord, with her bow reported smashed, anchored for examination and thea proceeded to Sault Ste. Marie. The Coast Guard searched the straits all night. Planes were ordered to join the hunt with the first daylight today. Witnesses said the Cedarville was hit on the port side approximately amidships by the Norwegian vessel's bow. The Cedarville was reported approaching the straits and was about to make its turn into (he channel proper when the collision took place. Woodrow Jarvis, free lance writer and photographer of De- Tour, Mich., quoted an unidentified Cedarville survivor as saying his ship "gave a shudder" after the collision and then "went straight down—like a stone.'
