(NEA Telephoto) U.S. to Consider Calling Reserves Court Denies Rehearing to Dr. Sheppard Appeal to Be Made To Supreme Court CININNATI, Ohio (AP)—Dr. Sam Sheppard was denied a rehearing today of a federal court order to return him to prison on a life sentence for the 1954 slaying of his first wife. The split decision by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sets the stage for an appeal to he U.S. Supreme Court by the Planes Make Their Deepest Penetration of N. Viet Nam 42-year-old who won WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Defense Robert S. Me- Namara said today new U. S. troops increases in South Viet Nam would make it necessary to consider calling up military reserves, extending tours of duty and enlarging draft calls. McNamara, A m b a s s a dor- designate Henry Cabot Lodge, and Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, are to leave for Saigon tonight on a weeklong survey which is generally expected to result in a decision to make substantial Increases in the U.S. forces in Viet Nam. At a forenoon news conference, McNamara said the Communists have forces in the country which they have not yet used and he therefore predicted new Red military operations. "The Viet Cong are continuing to increase in South Viet Nam," McNamara said "They have forces in the country they have not yet assigned to combat. "We can expect further increases in Viet Cong operations because of forces not yet assigned to combat." President Johnson had disclosed Tuesday that calling reserves to active duty and enlarging draft quotas were, under consideration but said that no decisions would be made pending the return of the McNamara survey group. "We will do whatever is nee- Little Progress Seen for Talks By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH GENEVA (AP)—Despite Soviet agreement to return to the Geneva disarmament talks, conference officials say there is no immediate prospect for important progress before the U.N. General Assembly opens in September. But Britain announced Tuesday that as soon as the 17-nation conference resumes, it plans to submit a draft treaty to check the spread of nuclear weapons. It said the draft had been prepared in consultation •'with its allies. Soviet acceptance of a U.S. proposal to resume the talks by July 27 was announced by President Johnson in Washington Tuesday. The conference recessed Sept. 17, 1964. The Soviet bloc repeatedly had turned down American proposals "to revive the talks, saying it preferred to carry on the discussions in the 114-member U.N. Disarmament Commission in New York. The commission voted overwhelmingly last month for a resumption of the Geneva talks, and Western officials here believe this played a big part in the Soviet change of heart. The United States is reported willing for the first time to discuss the multilateral nuclear force: proposed for the North Atlantic 1 Treaty Organization at the conference. The Soviets have warned repeatedly that creation of the force wpuld raise "insurmouta- ble obstacles" to any treaty to prevent the spread of nuclear arms. The conference, which was first convened in March 1962, has been deadlocked for years over rival Soviet and (J.S. disarmament plans. essary," Johnson told a news conference. He also forecast that "new and serious decisions" will have to be made. McNamara said the purpose of the trip to Viet Nam is to review U.S. force levels, the num- -ber of American troops to "be assigned there under present plans, and. the level of equipment and'supplies for waging the anti-Communist war. "If forces "are increased in strength," McNamara »said in response to a question, "it wil be necessary to consider calling up reserves, and extending tours (of men now in military service) and increasing the draft calls." McNamara disclosed that the United States is considering a 60 per. cent increase in the num ber of helicopter companies in the Army. He also said stocks at modern high explosive bomb — nonnuclear bombs — are 50C per cent higher now than in 1961 and will be 1,000 per cen higher by the end of 1966. McNamara was asked wha method the Johnson administra tion uses in determining force in creases in Viet Nam—whether by long-range planning or by periodic discovery of greater need. He said both methods are used. McNamara did not give any figures on U.S. forces, which are known to have reached a level of about 75,000 now and are expected to go well over 100,000. He did, however, say that the Viet Cong forces —including reinforcements from North Viet Nam — total 65,000 Cleveland osteopath at least temporary reedom last July 16. Sheppard married Ariane Teb- benjohanns, a German divorcee he met by mall, two days after a federal district judge ordered rim released from Ohio Penitentiary on grounds he had not received a fair trial in the slay- ng of his first wife. The Sheppards have lived quietly in a Cleveland suburb, awaiting final action in the case. The appeallate court held by a 2-1 vote oh May 5 that Sheppard's appeal did not show a violation of federal constitutional rights. Today's denial of a rehearing also was 2-1. Sheppard's wife, Ariane, said he was in a neighborhood market when the word of the denial reached him. She added they had not yet reached his attorney, F. Lee Bailey, in Boston. 'We were prepared by Mr. Bailey that 95 per cent of such SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) — U.S. fighter-bombers made their deepest penetration of North Viet Nam today by attacking two trucks 37 miles north-northeast of Dien Bien Phu, a U. S. spokesman announced. The point appeared to be about an equal distance south of Red China's frontier. The spokesman said four U.S. Air Force F105 Thunderchiefs heavily damaged the two trucks during a reconnaissance mission. The raid was one of a series staged by more than 70 U.S. and South Vietnamese planes, largely against barracks, staging areas and military depots. Dien Bien Phu is 210 miles north-northwest of Hanoi. Ground and air action raged in the area of Da Nang, the air base center 380 miles northeast j of Saigon. More than 150 planes attacked a suspected Viet Cong headquarters. Red guerrillas overran a government outpost, killing 26 defenders. Between 150 and 200 U.S. and Vietnamese planes blasted a 1.5- square-mile area 40 miles south of Da Nang for three hours in one of the heaviest air assaults in central Viet Nam in months, a U.S. Air Force spokesman said. The pilots said they could Twenty-five miles southwest of Da Nang, a guerrilla force of unknown strength overran a government outpost at An Hoa, in Quang Nam Province, killing 26 in the garrison and wounding one, a U.S. Army spokesman said. Details were sketchy. It was not known if any Americans were involved. One U.S. Marine was killed and another wounded when about 15 Viet Cong attacked a Marine loading party on a beach about 10 miles southeast of Da Nang, military spokesmen said. The Marines called in tanks and the Viet Cong withdrew, the spokesmen added. There was no Craft Responds To 1st Command In Five Months Photo-Taking Is Due To Start Late Today PASADENA, Calif.

The appeals court clerk's office said Sheppard has five days in which to ask for another stay of the order to send him back to prison. A stay would be sought if an appeal is filed with the U.S. Supreme Court. Sheppard's lawyer vowed after the earlier decision to carry the case to the highest court.

Officials said that 9,000 troops of all kinds took part, including varied armored units, Alpine troops, navy and air force units. Following the parade De GjEicrne was host at a giant reception at the Elysee Palace. regular guerrillas and up to 100,000 irregular guerrillas. McNamara was asked whether the United States has any plans to take the initiative against the Viet Cong. He replied that the primary responsibility- for securing the independence of South Viet Nam against Red conquest "must be the responsibility of the South Vietnamese." Johnson, at his. news conference, refused in response to a specific question, fo rule out the possibility of a major land war in Asia because, he said, no ne can prophesy what the coming weeks or months will bring. But Johnson's assertion that new and serious decisions may be necessary amounted to an alert to the American people of possible grim news in the offing .

Weinman cited publicity about the case and pretrial remarks allegedly made by the judge who presided over the trial. But the appeallate court held both May 5 and today that Sheppard had failed to prove that 'he was deprived of federally granted constitutional rights." It said Sheppard's appeal showed no evidence that any pretrial remarks by the presiding judge field College. There was a terrific noise and suddenly the room was full of fog and chemicals," said the chemistry teacher, Dr. Robert Brailsford. "I couldn't see anything for a couple of minutes." Brailsford said the explosion which ripped through the summer school class of 25 students at the junior college Tuesday apparently was touched off unintentionally by a youth mixing noncompatible chemicals not included in the class experiment. All 24 students were taken to the hospital, but 13 were released after treatment for either cuts or chemical inhalation. . Brailsford said the youth, William J. Fox, 19, of Ridgecrest, realized what he had done and gasped "God forgive me" before he collapsed to the floor. Spokesmen at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital said Fox was in critical condition with burns and internal cuts from flying glass fragments. He lost his left hand. At Mercy Hospital, Joseph Hibbs of China Lake also was in critical condition. northwest of Hanoi was attacked again today by 21 U.S. Air planes, spokesmen said. It was one of the targets north of Hanoi that have been hit several times in attacks ranging deep into North Viet Nam. U.S. military spokesmen said the pilots reported they destroyed 20 buildings and damaged six others. Fourteen South Vietnamese and American planes joined forces today to attack the Minh Son army barracks about 30 miles northwest of Vinb. the spokesmen said. The pilots reported destroying two buildings and damaging two others. Other damage claimed by raiders on North Viet Nam included: The Bom XA staging area, 55 miles southwest of Vinh, direct hits on numerous structures in the motor pool and support areas; a radar installation miles north of the •> border, destroyed; the Ban Ban and Qui Chau ferry installations 110 miles southwest of Hanoi, moderate damage; a military supply depot 30 miles southeast of Vinh, destroyed; approaches to two river crossings in the same area, cratered; the Bom Ron Xa staging area 55 miles southwest of Vinh, heavily cratered.

(NEA Telephoto) \ British House Passes Law Against Hanging LONDON (AP) - The bill to abolish hanging as the penalty for murder went to the House of Lords today after final approval in the House of Commons by a vote of 200-98. The spokesmen said a militia force reported finding 21 Vieti Cong bodies in an area about 70 miles southwest of Saigon that was strafed Tuesday by two U.S. planes. They said South Vietnamese forces also claimed they had killed 15 Viet Cong and captured two others during an operation 15 miles southwest of Saigon. Government losses were given as one killed and eight wounded. The remaining 2,900 men of the U.S. 1st Division's 2nd Brigade began landing from the troopship Gordon at Vung Tay, 40 miles southeast of Saigon, and Air Force C130 transports were flying them to Bien Hoa to build up American strength around the big air base 15 miles north of the capital. The first 1,000 men of the brigade went ashore Monday at Cam Ranh Bay, a big harbor 180 miles northeast of Saigon where U.S. Army engineers are establishing a major base. The men from the "Big Red One" will bring U.S. troop strength around the Bien Hoa miles of space ordering warm- up of Mariner's instruments. Twenty-four minutes later an answer flashed back, signaling that Mariner was obeying. At 5:20 p.m., if all goes well, the 575-pound craft will start making up to 21 photographs as t flies within 6,000 miles of the Martian surface. Thursday it is supposed to send the photos back to earth — perhaps shedding light on the ancient question of whether the mystery planet has life. The warmup signal was sent with Mariner only 107,000 miles from Mars and traveling 9,970 miles per hour with relation to the planet. Its speed will increase to 11,000 m.p.h. by the time it flies by. The earth command, first since last Feb. 12, was transmitted from a tracking station at Johannesburg, South Africa. It started a light-sensitive scanner looking for the bright disk of Mars. And it started Mariner's camera making warmup clicks, although it will not actually take pictures until the scheduled time. Since February, the spacecraft's activities have been controlled by an 6n-board timer. The activity today climaxed a 228-day, 325-million-mile flight'. If everything works scientists expect to release Thursday night or Friday history's first closeup of the one other planet in the solar system believed likely to harbor some form of life. Reddish-tinged Mars, one- half the diameter of earth, is the only planet with surface markings visible in telescopes. It has white caps at the poles which could be ice, and vast desert-like areas around its equator. Between the polar caps and the desert are splotches of dark green that some scientists have speculated arevegetation.

McNamara announced today that military spending in the just- ended fiscal year fell $3.75. billion below forecasts. i McNamara credited this reduction, which brought defense spending to $47.5 billion in fiscal 1965, largely to his cost reduction program. He claimed in an annual progress report that this program saved $4.6 billion in the last fiscal year — more than double the, $2.1 billion saving he predicted one year ago. McNamara said the program is going so well that savings of $6.1 billion a year by fiscal 1969 and each year after that "have been set as our new long range goal." The program is in its fourth year. • McNamara stressed that "these savings are being accomplished without any adverse effect on our military strength and combat readiness." His third annual progress report on his cost reduction program was prepared for a news conference. McNamara said the program has three parts: "Buying only what we need to achieve balanced readiness," "buying at the lowest sound price" and "reduc- could prove once and for alii ing operating costs through whether the so-called canals are i termination of unnecessary oper- ,.-...,, _, intelligent - ations, standardization and con! solidation.' the handiwork of overly disappointed in the $200- million Mars gram.
