TEN PAGES SINGLE COPY 10 CENTS. 6 Million Budget Proposed for State U.S. Warplanes Sink or Damage 15 Enemy Boats Bombs Dropped on Military Barrgcks By RONALD I. DEUTSCH SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) — U.S. warplanes sank or damaged 15 boats today in an air strike about 120 miles inside North Viet Nam. A U.S military spokesman said the vessels opened fire on the four U.S Air Force Thun- derchiefs just before they attacked The planes dropped eight tons of bombs on the boats .during the 30-minute strike. In another raid over North Viet Nam, the spokesman said 25 F-105 Thunderchiefs hammered several targets about 130 miles southwest of Hanoi near the Laotian border. They destroyed three buildings at the Muong Sen communications site and seven military barracks. The planes dropped 30 tons of bombs on the targets. Light automatic weapons 'fire was encountered, but all the planes returned safely, the spokesman said. • Two U.S. Navy Al Skyraiders cratered both approaches to a three-span steel bridge in an attack along Route 7 about 150 miles southwest of the North! Vietnamese capital. Both planes returned safely to the carrier Midway. In air strikes inside South! Viet Nam, the spokesman saidj U.S. Navy planes flew some 70 ; sorties Friday against Viet Cong; positions in the southernmost Fourth Army Corps area. In the 1st Army Corps area. 15 U. S. Air Force F?00 jets splashed 45 tanks of napalm and poured 750 pound bombs into a reported Viet Cong concentra^ tion 14 miles west of the Quang Tri Province capital. Quang Tri is only 20 miles Irom the border with North Viet Nam, and senior corps officers were fearful that the Viet Cong were preparing a major follow up to their successful meat- grinder operation in another part of the corps area two weeks ago. Pilots claimed they set fire to an ammunition storage area, destroying 21 structures and damaging 13 others in the raid. Six other FlOOs hammered a suspected Viet Cong area with napalm and bombs near the U. S. Marines' outer defense perimeter along the Chu Lai beach head, 53 miles south of Da Nang. In another attack, two FIDO's were sent to Nam Dong outpost west of Da Nang shortly after midnight when the government post was hit by a large Viet Cong force. Using napalm, bombs and cannon, the planes blasted at enemy positions around the outpost and the attack was broken off with no government losses. Viet Cong casualties, if any, were unknown. - At Da Nang air base, two U.S. Army men were reported injured, one seriously in the accidental firing of a 2.75-inch rocket from a launcher on a helicopter. Authorities said three maintenance men were checking the launcher's firing system when a malfunction caused a rocket to lire.

(NEA Telephoto) Determination of U.S. to In Southeast Asia Is Unshaken Taylor Heads Back To Saigon Tonight WASHINGTON (AP) — U. S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor heads back to Saigon tonight with U. S. determination to remain in Southeast Asia unshaken by rising political and military pressures. After consultations with the President, his top State and Defense department advisers, and congressional leaders, Taylor was to carry President Johnson's counsel to the Vietnamese military who have taken power back into their hands in Saigon. Administration officials indicated f ,he political change would not slacken the war effort. Top American authorities did not look on the present political crisis in Saigon in the same way as they have the outright coups Generals Return to Power in South Viet Nam's Government in the past. This was because Premier Phan Huy Quat had served notice earlier that he had called the military in to mediate a constitutional impasse between himself and the chief of state,! President Pham Khac Suu. Quat, Suu and other members of the civilian government resigned but agreed to stay on in caretaker roles. Taylor and other government leaders appeared far more concerned, with the, military test with the- Viet Cong developing during the current rainy season. Taylor predicted sharp fighting over the next two months. The pattern of. Communist attack in recent battles apparently is designed to achieve a quick tactical advantage by superior numbers over smaller lorces, rather than to hold any specilic territory. The Communists have pulled their attacks with the advantage of surprise in places of their own choosing, but it is held unlikely that the Viet Cong will be able to hold positions for any length of time: It is expected that initial reports will reflect government losses, officials said, while a longer priod ol time will be required belore the enemy losses are known and reported.' But this type of fighting will exact very heavy casualties among the Viet Cong, it was predicted SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Mounting public pressure and an internal feud were climaxed today by the resignation of South Viet Nam's tour- month-old civilian government, which returned power to the generals. It marked the eighth change of government in the war-torn country since strongman President Ngo Dinh Diem was overthrown and assassinated less than 20 months ago. Prime Minister Phan Huy Quat and Chief of State Phan Khac Suu, who had clashed over a Cabinet shakeup, agreed, to stay on in caretaker roles with other members of the govern' ment. But the National Charter and the Legislative Council were eliminated and a highly placed source said that "at this point we are starting absolutely from scratch." Although the situation was still'fluid, Maj. Gen. Nguyen Van Thieu was serving as a spokesman for the military leaders. Thieu was deputy prime minister and defense .minister in the Quat cabinet. Brig. Gen. Nguyen Cao Ky, the flamboyant commander of the Vietnamese air force, also was viewed as having a strong voice. But there were no clues as to what form the new government would take.

It came after three weeks ol mounting pressure lor Quat's resignation Irom Roman Catholics and other dissident elements. A high government source emphasized that the development should not be interpreted as another coup.,. : In the lace of growing opposition, Quat this week had turned to the generals to help solve the crisis. The source said he believed the generals had been reluctant to step into the situation, but agreed to take over because ol a sense ol responsibility they lelt stemmed Irom the Nov. 1, 1963 military coup that ousted President Diem. Asked it there was any possibility Of a return to complete civilian government in the foreseeable luture, the source said: "The problem right now is to win the war." The source said Fr i d a y night's decision "represented progress" and, d e s p ite the vague state of affairs, "there is no instability." Authorities said no martial law had been imposed, but noted that street demonstrations are banned under the state ol emergency that has existed lor nearly a year. Three government marine battalions, about 1,500 men, had been posted in the capital as security as the military leaders met with Quat Friday. The capital appeared normal, although more police than usual patroled the streets this morning. A massive Catholic anti-Quat demonstration had been planned today, but it was called oil. Senate Reduces Foreign Aid Bill By $200 Million Across-the-Board Cut Is Approved WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has voted a $200 million across-the-board cut in President Johnson's foreign aid authorization bill. The action came late Friday on an amendment by Sen Wayne Morse, D-Ore., to reduce authorizations for each of the next two years from $3,443,170,000 to $3,243,170.000, which carried 40 to 35. Sen. Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., the majority leader, announced after the vote that the leadership planned to keep the Senate in session Monday night in the hope of completing action on the bill. Morse charged the program had resulted in billions of dollars of waste through mismanagement, and called it "a stinking mess." But he was defeated earlier, 54 to 26. when he sought to cut it by $443.170,000 to an even $3 billion. He announced he will call up more amendments Monday seeking to cut the program on a "country-by-country basis." The $200 million cut was the first opponents had succeeded in making since the bill reached the Senate floor a week ago Friday. Astronauts Prepare for Round Of Receptions, Celebrations By HAROLD R WILLIAMS AP Aerospace Writer HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — America's space twins prepared today for what fellow astronauts have called "the toughest part of the mission"—the inevitable round of receptions, parades and celebrations Astronauts James A. McDivitt and Edward H. White II relaxed at their homes near the Manned Space Center in Houston, resting for the busy week ahead. It starts Monday with a ticker tape parade in Chicago There's a homecoming celebration Tuesday at the University of Michigan, and hometown' wel- comings Wednesday in Jackson. Mich., for McDivitt, and in San Antonio, Tex., for White McDivitt and White got a big surprise Friday — a "little Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, was defeated, 53 to 38, Friday on an amendment to cut military assistance by $115 million, from $1,170,000,000 to $1.055,000.000. He argued that the United States is .providing military equipment lor opposing lorces ol Pakistan and India as well as opposing forces of Turkey and Greece, and that the cuts should be taken from those programs. •The Senate, by a 42-39 vote, also put a ceiling of 15 per cent on the amount of U. S. development loan funds that can be transferred to international agencies for lending. The amendment was offered by Sen. Frank J. Lausche, D-Ohio. Only Thursday, the Senate rejected an amendment by Sen. Ernest Gruening, D-Alaska, to keep the ceiling on transfer authority at the existing 1 per cent, instead of the 20 per cent recommended by the Foreign Relations .Committee. ' The Morse amendment would allow the administration to distribute the $200 million cut among the various foreign aid programs as it chooses. While the bill has been cut $200 million, this reduction has been partially offset by previous Senate action adding $89 million to the measure to launch President Johnson's economic and social development program in South Viet Nam, Thailand and Laos. Suspect in Bank Holdup Gives Up KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — "I'm tired of running. I want to surrender." Duane Pope, 22 years old and fresh out of college, said it twice Friday, first to the president ol his college and then in a telephone call;to police. By surrendering, Pope ended a nationwide search that began a week earlier when the president and two employes of a Big Springs, Neb., bank were shot to death during a holdup. The FBI took charge ol Pope shortly after his surrender and within 90 minutes had him arraigned before U.S. Commissioner Lee Cisel. He then was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond. The FBI would not comment on what, if anything, Pope said about the June 4 robbery ol the Farmers State Bank ol Big Springs when $1,598 was taken something" from President Johnson in the way of promotions. They changed their gold major's leaves on their Air Force tunics to the silver of lieutenant colonels. The President's first visit to the Manned Spacecraft Center resulted from a decision made by McDivitt and White They had been given a choice of receiving the presidential congratulations at the center or the LBJ Ranch. They chose Houston so fellow employes at the center could share the congratulations Johnson's announcement of the on - the - spot promotions brought shocked expressions to the spacemen and their wives. The astronauts became majors only last December. While speaking before 4,000 space center employes who sweltered under a hot Texas sun, Johnson also promoted Air Force Majs. L. Gordon Cooper and Virgil I. Grissom to lieutenant colonel. Grissom was command pilot for the first manned Gemini mission. Cooper is scheduled to command a seven-day mission in late August. The promotions came after McDivitt and White relived their space feats during a two- hour news conference televised and broadcast nationally. White said he had no sensation of falling when he stepped from the speeding Gemini capsule lor his walk 105 miles above the earth. "I will try to describe it as best I can to you," said White in answer to a newsman's question. "There was absolutely no Unexpected Cuts Made by House, Senate Groups Fight Is Expected On U-M Reduction By DICK BARNES *nd AL SANDNER Associated Press Writers LANSING (AP) — House and Senate spending committees, slashing in unexpected places Friday night, came up with a surprisingly low $816 million state spending plan for the coming fiscal year. Senate Appropriations Committee chairman Garland Lane, D-Flint, projected the mid-1966 state surplus at $92 million— $20 million more than Gpv. George Rornney predicted in his January budget message.
