VACCARO WASHINGTON (APl^ — The Senate has passed an administration-opposed "cold war" GI Bill of Rights measure. The issue of educational allowances and home loan benefits for post- Korean veterans now is up to the House. The Senate rejected Monday Republican proposals to restrict the aid to veterans of combat zone service and then passed the bill, 69 to 17. The House failed to act on a similar Senate measure in 1959, but Sen. Ralph W. Yarborough, D - Tex. told reporters Chairman O 1 i n E Teague. D-Tex.. of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, has announced plans to hold early hearings on the new bill. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield indicated he expects favorable House action this year, when thousands are serving in Viet Nam Mansfield supported the bill, although the • Budget Bureau, Defense Department and Veterans Administration opposed it. Sen. John G Tower R-Tex., voted for the measure on final passage, expressing hope that the House will convert it "into the Viet Nam GI Bill we so badly need." He had participated in efforts to restrict the benefits to men who served in arc-as ot hostilities.'An amendment along these lines, offered by Sen.

Vietnamese fighting bachelors, $135 for veterans with one dependent and $160 a month for veterans with more than one dependent, would be conditioned on more than 180 days of active duty or discharge for service-connected disability. The same eligibility would apply for applicants for loans and guarantees for the purchase of homes and livestock. If a serviceman dies from service- connected disabilities, his widow could apply for such loans and guarantees. The education allowance would provide IViz days of school aid for each day of active service, but with an over-all limit of 36 months. The loan features would not provide aid in starting businesses — except for the help In acquiring farms and livestock — as did the earlier GI bills. The government would guarantee 60 per cent of loans from banks and others up to $7,500 on residential real estate, and would provide a 50 per cent guarantee up to $4,000 on nonresidential real estate. Infantry'Division's 2nd Brigade at Bien Hoa were among highlights of the day. Four suspects, including two boys, were reported arrested after discovery and disarming of a claymore bomb planted at the entrace of a stadium where Taylor and senior Vietnamese officials were attending a Unity Day celebration.

Water from the Platte Rive Vacation to Include Some Allied Capitals WASHINGTON (AP) — The tones—that roving Ambassador W. Averell Harriman is taking has been stretched to include several Allied capitals Harriman has been talking informally with Soviet leaders in Moscow. The State Department said Monday he will leave there probably before the end of this week and go to Brussels, Bonn, London and Rome McNamara said he would recommend to President Johnson that the United States "fulfill the commitment of our nation to defend Viet Nam." He declined to elaborate, but during his visit both U.S. and South Vietnamese officials here recommended that U.S. troops in the country be increased. On the battlefront, an outnumbered Vietnamese special forces garrison fought off a powerful Viet Cong attack in a "valiant stand" early today but suffered "an awful lot of casualties," a U.S. spokesman reported. He said Americans were among the dead. Six U.S. special forces advisers and 200 Vietnamese made up the garrison, at Bu Dop, due north of Saigon and five miles from the Cambodian border. The Viet Cong repeatedly assaulted the camp, the spokesman said, but did not penetrate far into it. The biggest assault was launched at 8:30 a.m., the spokesman said. The Viet Cong hit the north wall of the camp, swarming across a moat and Want-Ad to Buy Used Crib Locates One 1st Day-Ad Cost Only $1 When you want to, ..purchase a-used item—use a' result-getting Daily Globe Want-Ad like (hfi ;on'e:-' : ''• .,, WOULD LU<5B.

The vote was a unanimous 410 The Senate has not yet acted. As passed by the House, the raise would average 10.7 per cent, with low-ranked enlisted personnel averaging 13 per cent and officers 7.2 per cent. Debate on the measure, twice as costly as proposed by the Johnson administration, was concluded Monday with no spoken opoosition. Only the fact that some members were in Illinois attending Adlai Stevenson's funeral held up Its formal passage.

The Viet Cong also hit the 1st! Division's 2nd Brigade near 1 Bien Hoa early' today with mortar and small arms fire for the second day in a row. U.S. casualties were described as light. Three Americans were killed by a Viet Cong attack on the unit Monday. In Saigon, four suspects, including two young boys, were reported arrested after what appeared to be an unsuccessful from 132 miles to 69,570 miles! from the earth. The planned orbit' was from 121 miles to $63,250 miles. The Pygmy satellite was to remain in the elliptical path. But the twin Sentries were to be jockeyed at high altitude outposts to reinforce America's space patrol in policing the limited nuclear test ban treaty. 'Within seconds after the Atlas-Agena blasted off, a smaller rocket, launched from . the cape, darted skyward to study the Atlas-Agena's exhaust. Because of a complex flight plan intended to station the twin satellites at the high point of the orbit, Air Force officials said they wouldn't know until about 10:00 a.m. Thursday whether the mission was completely successful. The nuclear detection satellites, each weighing 524 pounds, were to join four others already patrolling the skies. They were launched in pairs in 1963 and 1964. The earlier satellites have Instruments which peer millions of miles into space.
