Wilson avoided mentioning the French leader by name. But his target was clear to the foreign ministers from the 15 nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The prime minister said the keynote of NATO "must be interdependence" and added: "Indeed our willingness to accept the implications of interdependence must grow, not diminish, as we work to make the alliance more effective and bring it into line with changing world requirements.

With this he downgraded the nuclear power of France and Communist China as well as Britain's. "The sheer facts of thermonuclear weaponry," said Wilson, "to say nothing of the hard lessons of economics, mean that outside the two major nuclear nations, the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R., there cannot be a genuinely independent nuclear power capable of sustaining thermonuclear war or of providing a;Garnett had done anything globally credible nuclear deter- j compatible with his status "And the effects of modern nuclear warfare, no less than the realization that isolationism is impossible, even for the most powerful, mean that no nation, however great, can think in terms of going it alone, without i of the Foreign "Ministry's Amer- allies and without regard to I ican section, said Garnett should world opinion." i leave in "a reasonable short two raids against North Viet Nam today.

Two Skyhawks from the carrier Oriskany reported three direct hits on a railroad bridge about 13 miles south of Thanh Hoa. All the planes returned safely to their bases, the spokesman said. The heaviest American casualties were suffered in Song Be, a provincial capital near the Cambodian border. Government i forces reoccupied the town under cover of a heavy air attack by U.S. Air Force jets, but the Communists dug in along a river northeast of the town. A major battle appeared to be developing. Communists groundfire hit one American propeller-driven fighter-bomber in the engine, forcing it to land. An Army helicopter picked up the pilot unhurt 15 minutes later. "We're really pouring the air on them. We're giving them everything we can lay our hands on," a U.S. military spokesman in Saigon said. Twenty Vietnamese soldiers were reported killed and 50 wounded. There was no estimate of Viet Cong casualties.

Belgian Foreign Minister Paul-Henri Spaak. president of the NATO Council, and NATO Secretary-General Manlio Brosio of Italy joined Wilson in calling for a new dedication to unity within the alliance. Spaak said recent developments in Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic showed the world still had a long way to go to gain true peaceful coexistence. The Belgian foreign minister said the NATO alliance had kept peace in Europe, where the last two world wars had originated. i For that reason, Spaak said, "it would be a great mistake to destroy, or even to undermine, however slightly, this alliance which has achieved its goal, safe-guarded liberty and kept the peace." NATO sources said the ministers would be occupied almost exclusively during their three- day meeting with political topics.

Head of Junta Will Accept Resignation of Gen. Wessin By ROBERT BERRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (APi—The head of the civilian-military junta said today he will accept the resignation of Brig Gen. Wessin "y Wessin, archfoe of the rebels, it it is offered. Brig. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barreras, president of the junta, said in an interview he Knew nothing of Wessin's resignation, reported Monday by the U. S. Embassy as a peace overture to the rebels. Later the embassy said Wessin had reconsidered. "The question of Gen. Wessin's resignation is a matter between Gen. Imbert and Gen. Wessin," a U.S. Embassy official said in a statement. "We did understand from official sources that Gen. Wessin was going to resign at 4 p.m. Monday. We now understand that he Is reconsidering his decision," the statement said. The United States had pressed for Wessin's retirement as a peace gesture toward the rebels, whose forces he fought with planes and tanks before the arrival of U.S. troops. Many Dominicans held him responsible for the air bombardments of Santo Domingo that took more than 1,000 lives. Col.

The Americans have been expecting a major attack for months on Song Be. The town was created by the late President Ngo Dinh Diem, who opened up Phuoc Long Province, a desolate area near Cambodia. The attack followed three days of intensive Communist activity in the northern Mekong Delta. Two Americans and about 50 Vietnamese were killed in a battle Sunday and Monday in Hau Nghia Province, 50 miles south of Song Be.

Two Proposals Are Adopted by Big Majorities 6 Men Are Elected To Trustees Board Gogebic County voters, in • special election Monday, overwhelmingly approved proposals to separate Gogebic Community College from the City of Ir o n- wood Public School District and establish it on a county-wide basis. In one of the greatest outpouring of electors in an election involving education, the voters approved by onesided margins the establishment of a countywide community college and authorized the levying of a tax to support the new institution. They also elected six men to serve on the new college's first Board of Trustees. Elected to he board were Roy R. Ahonen. Rutger F. Erickson, Charles E. Gotta and Raymond J. LutwltzU all of Ironwood, and the Rev. Rudolph Kemppa i n e n and arl E. Kleimola, both of Wakefield. Proposed plans for the new institution call for the college, which has been operated by the Ironwood School District since its founding in 1932, to be separated entirely from the local district and moved out of its present location in Luther L. Wright High School to a new site to be selected by the Board ot Trustees which will have sole administrative authority ov e r the new college, following a period of transition during which control of the college will pass from the Ironwood Board of Education to the new board.

Military officials have said privately they believe the impression became widespread that the cials studying the draft and oth-! draft would be ended. This, they said, has caused a drop-off in enlistments in all services because many enlistments are believed to be made with the er means of getting manpower necessary to maintain t h e armed services at their required strengths. This study, it is understood, will show that the draft must be continued at least until 1970. younger than the minimum age of 18. This might spur youths in those brackets to enlist. Calculations by the group of 30 specialists conducting the draft study suggest that the U.S. forces will remain at about the present level — 2.7 million — at least until 1970. A hefty across-the-board pay increase which might attract and hold a force of career servicemen apparently ranks fairly In another peace gesture, Imbert on Sunday dismissed eigW officers considered offensive to the rebels.

"I am completely sure that a dictatorship of the left is infinitely worse than one of the right," he said. U.S. forces reinforced their encirclement of the rebel-held a^ea of Santo Domingo with 105mm howitzers, six smaller cannon and an additional 15 M48 tanks. A U.S. military spokesman said the artillery was "tuned on rebel targets.'

In Washington, the five-nation peace committee of the Organization of American States ignored a rebel ultimatum suspending peace negotiations.

Only 789 votes were cast against the proposal so that it carried by more than a 6-1 margin. Under state laws the new college district will be authorized to provide collegiate and non- collegiate level education, including area vocational-technical education programs which may result in granting of diplomas and certificates, including those known as associate degrees. By almost the same margin, the voters authorized the new Board of Trustees to levy a tax up to one and one-half mills on each dollar of assessed valuation, as equalized, of real and tangible personal property in the county. The proposed maximum levy would amount to $1.50 on each $1,000 of valuation. That proposal was adopted by a margin of 4,709 to 992. The first proposal for the establishment of the college carried in every one of the 14 voting precincts in the county, while the tax levy proposal was favored in all but one precinct. Watersmeet Township was the only precinct to register a majority vote against the levy and that was by a margin of just three votes, 66-63. Ahonen was the leading vote- getter in the field of 18 candidates for the six positions on the Board of Trustees. The unofficial returns gave him a total of 2,523 votes. Gotta was the runnerup with 2,448 votes and he was followed by Lutwitzi with 2,360, Kleimola 2,272, Rev. Mr. Kemppainen 2,253 and Erickson 2,186.
