Dominican Rebels Reject Surrender Bid U.S., Vietnamese Planes Hammer Military Targets Pilots Say Bridges, Vehicles Destroyed By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON. Viet Nam (AP) — American and Vietnamese warplanes began pounding military targets in North Viet Nam at midnight and continued the aerial hammering through the day. Returning pilots reported destruction of bridges, highway and railroad vehicles, military emplacements and one large Junk. A U.S. spokesman said the planes encountered light to moderate groiindfire but that all planes returned safely without sighting enemy aircraft. One Navy jet pilot was killed Sunday when his plane failed to pull out of a strafing dive on a truck during raids on North Viet Nam. Two American soldiers were killed and eight wounded in a six-hour battle with the Viet Cong 30 miles west of Saigon. It was one of several attacks during the weekend in the Mekong River delta. Navy aircraft from the carriers Coral Sea and Midway began the/day's attacks, dropping 12y 2 tons of bombs. They reported damaging four bridges, four trucks, one large junk and one roadgrader. U.S. Air Force FlOSs and FIDOs took to the air at noon and in a "highly successful" raid dropped a span of the Ha Tinh Bridge on north - south Route 1, 150 miles south of Hanoi, dropped a span of a bridge nearby and then destroyed the Tho Hgoa Bridge, south of Ha Tinh. At the same time, 16 FlOSs cruised over highway routes, destroying one truck, three boxcars near Route 1 and three small bridges. Vietnamese Skyraiders concentrated on bridge targets. DISAPPEARS SEEKING BROTHER—Donald Dawson, right, 25-year-old California merchant marine officer who has been seeking his brother, U.S. Army Lt. Daniel L. Dawson, left, in the jungles of South Viet Nam, is reported now apparently a prisoner of the Viet Cong guerrillas. Daniel, pilot of a spotter plane, was lost over the jungle in November. Donald has been in the area since January seeking trace of his brother. He intended to rescue Daniel if alive, or bury him properly, if dead. Donald has not been heard from since he entered the jungle on Easter expecting to return in a week or 10 days. (AP Wirephoto) Captain of German Ship Tells Of Hearing Screams for Help SAULT STE. MARIE (AP)—I Station for assistance and a "I saw the shadow of the^ ship go under and heard the hissing as it sank. After that all I could hear were the terrifying screams of the Cedarville crew calling for help." This was German Capt. Werner O. May's remembrance of the collision Friday of the Cedarville and the Norwegian freighter Topdalsfjord in the Straits of Mackinac. Capt. May, 42, testified in Cleveland, Ohio, at a Coast Guard investigation into the disaster which killed two Cedarville crewmen and left eight others missing and presumed dead. Meanwhile, officers of the Topdalsfjord recounted the fogbound collision at a Coast Guard In the Mekong delta fighting, | hearing nerei about 60 mlles the Viet Cong inflicted heavy casualties on the Catholic refugee settlement of Hai Yen. Then, early today, they attacked a nearby outpost and threw mortar fire on the town. Three Vietnamese soldiers and seven civilians, including five children, were reported wounded. Heavier casualties were suffered in a Viet Cong attack on an outpost 45 miles southwest of Saigon early today. Thirteen defenders were killed, 7 wounded and 4 captured. The battle west of Saigon began early Sunday when a Communist • mortar barrage descended on the capital of Hau Nghia Province. The first of the Americans to die and one of the American wounded were advisers sent in by helicopter with a government relief force. Sunday evening, a bullet hit another U.S. Army adviser in the face, killing him. Two advisers were wounded and three U.S. Army helicopter crewmen were lightly wounded.

Seven professional divers worked into Sunday night in the 38 degree water attempting to locate the bodies of the eight missing crewmen from the U.S. Steel Corp.'s limestone carrier. Capt. May's ship, the German freighter Weissenburg, was the first to reach the scene of/the disaster. He and his crew picked 27 men out of the water. Two of those rescued later died. May said his radioman heard a "Mayday" call from the Cedarville and radioed the two ships he was coming. He said he alerted his crew to man lifeboats and followed a radar signal to the scene. The German crew pulled a near-lifeless body from the water and applied artifical respira- ation. The man was kept alive for two hours and died just before a doctor arrived, Captain May said.

The chief mate of the Topdal sfjord, Karl Fagerli was recall ed to testify here again Sunday He was asked if, from the time the Cedarville was first sighted the collision could have been averted. Fagerli said it would not have been possible. Jan A. Gronstol, second of ficer of the Norwegian vessel told Coast Guard officials he was on the bridge watching the radar just prior to the collision He said he saw an object on the screen too large to obtain a bearing. He said he ran to a passage way off the bridge to warn the captain, Rasmus Haaland. The captain ordered the engine roorr to reverse the propellers, Gron stol said, ringing "hard astern' on the engine room telegraph Gronstol said he then heard the helmsman repeat the orde "hard astarboard", turning the wheel completely to the right Together, the two manuever would turn the ship backward in a counter-clockwise circle. Captain Haaland did not ap pear at the hearing. His docto told hearing officers Haaland was still confined to bed due to extreme exhaustion caused bj overwork and lack of sleep. The hearing here is scheduled to continue today with the Top dalsfjord's radio operator and chief engineer expected to tes tlfy. U.S. Steel Corp. hired seven divers to join the land, sea and air search for the eight missing men. The diving party included four "hard-hat" men, in metal helmets and carrying full equipment, and three scuba divers. No decision has been made about attempting to refloat the Cedarville, U.S. Steel officials said. The vessel, with some 35 feet of water over her bridge, is not regarded as a menace to navigation. Applause for Stalin Upsets Soviet Leader Unrehearsed Tribute Erupts in Kremlin By GEORGE SYVERTSEN MOSCOW (AP) — A burst of spontaneous applause for Joseph Stalin reverberated out of the Kremlin during the weekend and across the Soviet Union. The unrehearsed tribute erupted suddenly after a fleeting mention of Stalin as the Soviet's World War II armed forces commander in chief in a speech on the 20th anniversary of V-E Day by the new Soviet Communist party leader, Leonid I. Brezhnev. The crowd's reaction seemed to strike Brezhnev like a thunderclap. Obviously surprised, he stumbled over his text. He quickly recovered his composure and abruptly cut off the demonstration by resuming his reading. * * * The manifestation indicated that, despite nine years of de- stalinization, there may be many more fans of Stalin than the Soviet leaders suspected. The crowd gathered in the 6,000-seat Kremlin Palace of Congresses auditorium was similar to the hundreds of Soviet audiences before whom Nikita Khrushchev had denounced Stalin as a bloody tyrant. Many were representatives of the Soviet Communist party and government elite who professed complete sympathy with Khrushchev's vituperation toward the late dictator. A majority of the audience, however, were ordinary men and women who fought under Stalin's command during World War I. Outside Santo Domingo, Rest Of Dominican Republic Quiet By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Teeming rain drenched Santo Domingo today, and people even grasped at the fact of the rain in forlorn hope for a good omen. The downpour broke one of the worst droughts in recent memory. There are those who say the lack of rain had something to do with exploding the time bomb of rebellion here. Outside Santo Domingo, the rest of this little Caribbean country is quiet. There have been only occasional disorders elsewhere. The Dominican Republic's second city, Santiago, is Tornado Strikes Nebraska Town PRIMROSE, Neb. (AP) — Spurred by Gov. Frank Morrison's promise of all possible aid, National Guardsmen, volunteers and residents of this Nebraska community dug in today to clear the debris left by a tornado that ripped a 300-yard path Many charged of into them combat probably shouting the battle cry: "For the Motherland, for Stalin." Many were taught hymns to Stalin in schools and nurseries. They still know by heart verses giving thanks to Stalin for everything from their daily bread to the onset of spring. * * * Small groups gathered in Red Square after the meeting to discuss the applause for Stalin. Many openly • repudiated Khrushchev's charges against the former Kremlin ruler. Others bitterly criticized Khrushchev. The comments are typical of the warm sentiments toward Stalin frequently encountered by Russian-speaking foreigners in informal contacts with ordinary Russians. Khrushchev's successors are on record in favor of continued destalinization. They recently made it clear that Stalin's positive contributions, particularly during World War I, would be acknowledged, but that his mistakes and tyrannical methods would not be forgotten. The Kremlin audience gave further evidence of the ease with which Russians can accept yesterday's villain as today's hero and vice versa.

The governor visited the community Sunday during an air tour, of the tornado-stricken area. He called the storm one of the worst in the history of the state. reported back almost to its normal workaday pace. The capital, the nation's pollt- cal heart, is an armed camp divided into sectors controlled by rebels who call themselves constitutionalists and American soldiers and Marines who are here on what is advertised as a mission to keep the peace. Somewhere in between are the forces controlled by a new junta whose members are trying to look attractive to the constitutionalist rebels while threatening to launch an all-out attack against them. The United States, one hears, would deplore such an attack by the new junta. Yet it was the United States whose massive military intervention here prevented the rebels from taking over the country and eliminating those represented in the new junta. The United States brought troops here with the announced purpose of protecting American civilians. The U.S. government also suspects that Communists and Castroites have moved into commanding positions among the constitutionalist rebels and has been exhibiting determination to "prevent another Cuba." At this moment, the United States represents itself in the Dominican Republic as an agent of the Organization of American States with the mission to keep the peace and thus unable to take sides. But the exchange of casualties is with the rebel side, and the sniper's bullets — often so professionally directed as to suggest careful training in the Havana style — comes from the rebel side. The rain The twister, one of at least 20 reported within a 100-mile radius of Norfolk in northeastern Nebraska, left four dead and nine injured in Primrose alone. No other deaths were recorded but as reports filtered in from more than a score of other communities, it appeared the injured list would be at least 25.

(AP Wirephoto) S. Dakota Mas Heavy Snowfall DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) Snowplows pulled out of what was supposed to be summer storage were back on the highways today, attacking drifts left by a 31-inch snowfall in the west central South Dakota mountain country. The snow, which caught the area by surprise, started Saturday morning and didn't let up until noon Sunday. Deadwood had 30 inches and Lead, less than a mile away, measured 31 inches. The snow .drifted six to seven feet high in places. People who had gone to their fishing cabins Friday found themselves trapped by snow- clogged roads. Eight couples who haJ attended a dinner at a country club five miles from Lead shoveled and pushed their cars for W^ hours before getting home. Some areas lost electricity when trees toppled across power lines. Thawing temperatures followed the snow. "it isn't as bad now," said a Deadwood resident, "the drifts were over our heads, but now it's below our shoulders." Insurgents Say They Are Set to Repulse Attack Warning Issued by President of Junta By LOUIS CCHITELLE SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — The Dominican rebels have rejected • surrender invitation from the new military-civilian Junta with a reply that they have the morale and manpower to withstand attack. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barren, president of the five-man Junta, warned Sunday that his forces were ready "as of now" to move against the rebels. But he said no attack would be launched until every effort has been exhausted to evert bloodshed. U.S. sources said Washington would counsel against any renewal of fighting between tte opposing Dominican factions.' Imbert invited the rebels to lay down their arms and tear* the country if they wanted to. Col. Francisco Caamano Deno, the rebel chieftain, Issued this reply from his headquarters in the rebel-held southeast portion of Santo Domingo: 7 ' "We have defeated their best troops and the best from the national police force. Do they think that with reserves from the interior they will be able to defeat a people whose morale is higher than it ever was?" The rebels have charged that eight truckloads of Dominican troops were brought in from the countryside and are bivouacked in the zone occupied by U.S. troops. Although there were no official figures available on the size of forces available to .the Junta, Imbert said his troops were capable of moving against the by George Adams, 73, son-in- so ^, e th ° u ght Jt to be. law of one of the men who founded Primrose in 1902: "This town, like other small towns, was dying, but this tornado sealed the coffin.

I'm going to pile the family in a car and head west. A man would be nuts to live in tornado country."

HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — Army instructors will have to clean up their language — that's an order from the top. Gen. Harold K. Johnson, Army chief of staff, recently circulated an order to this effect and told his commanders down to battalion level he was concerned that the continued use of off-color language would harm the Army's image. Johnson, who has been known to rebuke aides who used even mild cusswords, said "I am fully conscious of the fact that we cannot regulate sin." However, he added: "I do not believe that we need blink at or condone those instances where the impropriety of the actions of , our leaders and instructors can MANILA, Philippines (AP) —; be interpreted clearly as offen- More than 30 warships archive to many of the individuals gathering in Manila Bay for the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization's exercise Sea Horse. Ships of the United States, British, Australian and Thai navies — including three aircraft 1 carriers — are taking part. who are subordinate to them." The Army chief of staff said he had witnessed during a recent trip a training demonstration in which the soldier-demonstrators used offensive language. He said he had received expressions of concern from one senior commander "that many of our young instructors feel that it is smart to use suggestive or off color stories." "The use of off color or suggestive stories has been justified to me as essential for establishing audience rapport or for rekindling interest in a presentation," Johnson said. "I would only comment that any individual who must resort to such practices should review his ability as a public speaker or instructor." Johnson reminded his commanders that the impressions carried away by men who serve only a single enlistment "contribute materially, for better or worse, to the image of the Army among the general public." Thus, he concluded, all commanders responsible for instruction or training should "take the necessary action to prohibit the use of .offensive language and off-color stories in our service schools and as a part of training." his wife and seven children were injured. Sara died several hours later in a hospital, three dead were Loesen, about 62, Mrs. Lorrell who operated a creamery; her son, Wayne, 36, who had come from Omaha to spend Mothers Day with her, and Myrtle Barry, who was killed as she attempted to take refuge in a sidewalk culvert. Aside from Primrose, the principal damage was to farmsteads, power and telephone lines. The tornado alley reached from Hebron on the Kansas border to the South Dakota line on the northeast and was well over 100 miles wide. The drought had been bad. The Dominican Republic leans heavily on four crops — sugar, cacao, coffee and bananas — and all have been in deep trouble. The drought raised the frustration level. Dominicans had been fighting with Dominicans before the explosion of April 24. Water had been scarce — even drinking water — and people had been snapping at one another. Now perhaps the drought is broken and now, perhaps, the political storm might ease. But, as they say here, who knows? It is not a matter of governments. Governments mean little in this tortured little island where most people regard one as not much better or worse than another. No government ever has been popular in the public and no Dominican Re- government is likely to be. The history of this island is too mixed up with greed, corruption and poverty for that.

'V'V Caamano's high command has estimated there are 20.000 civilians and 3,000 armed forces officers and enlisted men ready to defend the rebel cause. The rebels are hemmed in by the L-shaped zone occupied by U.S. troops, and have their backs to the Caribbean Sea. A strengthening of U.S. positions took place Sunday without official explanation. Units of the 4th U.S. Marine Expeditionary Force and' 82nd Airborne Division installed 105mm howitzers in a field in front of the Embajador Hotel, the seaside resort in suburban Santo Domingo which has been an evacuation center and American headquarters area. Bulldozers scooped out huge holes for the howitzer emplacements and the cannon were set up facing east — toward the rebel area. Access routes to the hotel also appeared to have more troops than usual. The rebels returned three American Seabees they captured Friday. They were Mike D. Monk, 29, Vandemere, N.C.; Ellard C. Dana, 40, Virginia Beach, Va., and Donald E. Martin, 27, Wichita, Kan. Dana said they got into rebel territory while trailing a lost Jeep. He said they were well fed, guarded part of the time by a teen-age girl with a machine gun and "invited to a big fiesta that will last for 30 days once this war is over." Imbert announced that eight top - ranking military officers had been separated from their commands "for the good of the country" and that most of them had left the country. The officers had long held top jobs in the Dominican's armed forces and were considered a source of aggravation to younger officers leading the rebellion. Imbert wouldn't say outright that the move was a concession to the rebels, but answered a question by saying this was "as far as we'll go." In San Juan, exiled ex-President Juan Bosch said U.S. military intervention in the Domin- traffic death count began at 6 p.m. Friday and ended at midnight Sunday. The victims included: William Lark, 21, of Toronto was killed Sunday in a two-car collision on U.S. 41 in Houghton County. Police said Lark's car skidded on a curve into the path of another vehicle.
