Titan 3C Launch Is Resounding Success Astronauts, HHH Fly Into Paris For Air Show Vice President Sets Talk With De Gaulle PARIS (AP)—U S. Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey and the Gemini astronauts flew into Paris today for the International Air Show and—for Humphrey— a meeting with President Charles de Gaulle The vice president and astronauts Edward White and James McDivitt arrived from Washington aboard President Johnson's special jet at 2:55 p.m.—9:5o a.m. EST. But what started out as a visit to the air show, and a chance for Frenchmen to see Ameri ca's space twins, developed i surprising political turn. While their plane was higl over the Atlantic, American of ficials announced that Hum phrey and De Gaulle would meet Sunday afternon at the Elysee Palace. There was immediate specu lation that Humphrey might trji to set up a meeting between De Gaulle and President John son. Other observers though Humphrey probably was only paying the courtesy call expected of the visiting vice president .of an Allied nation. De Gaulle and Johnson had a conference when the French president was in Washington for the funeral of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963, but they, have not met since. There was no announcement of what Humphrey and De Gaulle will discuss. But it was considered almost certain that they would talk over the sharp policy differences b e t w e e n Washington and Paris on the Viet Nam crisis, the Dominican Republic and the North Atlantic Alliance. With President Johnson's praise and thanks still ringing - in their ears and with special medals given them by Johnson, the astronauts and Humphrey took off from Andrews Air Base No Enemy Casualties Found After Air Attack on Viet Cong Jungle Scribe Soys Jungle Apparently Swallowed Up Bombs From Raid EDITOR'S NOTE — Two hours | after U.S. B52 bombers poured bombs down on reported Viet Cong concentrations in the jun- gled "D" zone north of Saigon, AP Correspondent Malcom W. Browne and several other newsmen flew over the area. Here is Browne's report.

BROWNE OVER D ZONE, South Viet Nam (AP) — A few plumes of smoke rose over the vast green jungle 25 miles north of Saigon today, but otherwise there were no signs visible from the air of the huge bombardment by U.S. Air Force B52s a few hours earlier. The jungle apparently had swallowed up the bombs. There seemed little doubt that In the President's a.m. EOT. Before they got jet at 4:27 aboard the sleek Air Force One, Humphrey told newsmen they were going as observers and to let other people see them and 'I hope very pleasant they richly de- they enjoy a weekend which serve." Besides Humphrey and Astronauts James A. McDivitt and Edward H. White n, the party included two top space officials — Charles W. Mathews, head of the Gemini program, and James E. Webb, administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The astronauts' wives went along but their children were left behind — at the White House where the families had spent the night The children were to go home to Texas later today. Johnson announced the trip to Paris at a State Department reception Thursday night. Humphrey was asked if the appearance of the space twins was America's answer to the huge new Soviet transport displayed in Paris several days ago. "No, we are not trying to compete," Humphrey said. "We just want to give people the chance to see these great men. Earlier this week the Soviets drew wide attention at the Paris air show by unveiling their giant new transport plane said to be capable of carrying 720 Reds Not Interested, ' Secretary Reports By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dean Rusk reported to the Cabinet today that some potential paths'to peace in Viet Nam remain open but that Hanoi and Peking do not appear interested in peace at this time. "We do not see at the present rime active interest on the part of Hanoi or Peking to bring this matter to a peaceful conclusion," Rusk said. He spoke to newsmen after a session of more than an hour with President Tohnson and the Cabinet, reviewing the international situation and ways of seeking a Viet Nam solution. Rusk also satf that he believed today's raids on suspected Viet Cong positions by Guam-based B52 bombers were worth the effort He said the matter was briefly touched on .luring the Cabinet session. Rusk noted that ground troops were now examining the outcome of the bombing. Rusk declined comment on whether B52s would be used to bomb Comunist North Viet Nam, which so far has been hit only by much smaller U S. and South Vietnamese planes attacking, specific targets like bridges and railroads. Secretary of S. McNamara $524 Million School Aid Bill Is on Its Way to Gov.

The $524 million school aid bill cleared its last legislative hurdle and was on its way to Gov. George Romney for action. The House concured in Senate changes to the bill, already passed by both chambers.

However, Rusk did all the talking for the group when it wound up its meeting. Johnson told a 93-minute news conference. Thursday that he welcomed this initiative , "We' are very happy they have made this suggestion,' he said. "We have talked to them, communicated with them about it and they will have our full cooperation.' But Johnson volunteered at another point that someone who contacted top officials of Communist 'North Viet Nam in be- iialf of the United States reported as recently as June 7 "they are not now interested in any negotiations of any kind " Johnson said he got a similar report from the same source, not identified, on Feb. 15 The President, who did not go into detail on the peace ideas placed on the Cabinet agenda, made it clear in response to a question that he does not favor negotiation with the Communist Viet Cong guerrillas in South Viet Nam. He said they represent no government. Asked if he was thinking about asking Congress for a broader mandate to prosecute the Viet Nam war. Johnson sak he has ample power ?s commander in chief and that a resolution Congress passed last August authorized "all necessary measures." In one of the opening statements at the presidential talk- fest — his longest news confer ence to date — Johnson condemned recent violations of the cease-fire agreement in the Dominican Republic, He said unprovoked attacks jn 'American and Brazilian troops there "appear to have 'been premeditated by element: which seek to prevent the estab See REDS—Pace !• now provides a specific list of services.

If probation studies are com pleted within that time, all fou will appear before Herland; again and their sentences af firmed, reduced or suspended This could result in their free dom by September. The three men, all New York City residents, were convicted by a jury Monday on charge of conspiring to blow up the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell and the Washington Monu ment and smuggling dynamifc from Montreal to New York. Sentenced to two consecutiv five-year terms were Robert 5 Collier, 28; Khaleel S. Sayyed 22; and Walter A. Bowe, 33. Michelle Duclos, 26, was giv en a five-year conditional sen tence for her part in the scheme to dramatize the Negroes' struggle for equality. there were casualties on the ground, however, and many of them undoubtedly were civilians. Several sticks of bombs struck near the edge of, open patches in the jungle, within a few hundred feet of cultivated rice lands and clusters of huts. There seemed to be no damage to the huts. But there were no people or animals visible on he ground. After the armada of eight-en- ine bombers had flown past, mall B57 twin-jet fighter bomb- rs swept in on runs over the ame zone, pouring more )ombs, rockets, napalm (firebombs) and cannon shells into he foliage and clearings and along streams. The crash of bombs from the B57s shook planes flying past at 2,000 feet. Cannon shells twinkled in bright sparks on the jungle roof, and napalm canisters sent fireballs billowing up through the greenery briefly. But the smoke from each blast dispersed quickly, leaving scarcely a trace. Trees in the area are 100 or more feet tall. In the jungle the anopy is impossible from the suits. The Viet Cong have an enormous system of tunnels an bunkers in the area. All efforts by government forces have failed to liquidate the network. Many of the bunkers are deep enough to hold up even under direct hits by artillery shells and heavy bombs. The big hope of the Air Force was to catch a large number of Viet Cong troops concentrated in the open or under the trees. The Air Force also may have been counting on the surprise effect of the raid. All past raids have been made at low altitude, and planes have made their strafing and bombing runs by diving. The Viet Cong might not have been prepared for an area attack by high-flying planes. How successful the raid may have been probably will not be known for days, if ever. From the air, however, the bombing did not seem to have SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP)—Scores of U.S. planes — including 27 B52 heavy bombers making their debut in combat—rained tons of bombs, napalm and rockets into three square miles of Viet Cong jungle today. Ground troops that searched the area founc; no enemy casualties from the big air attack, military spokesmen said. Two of the giant eight-engine bombers were lost in a collision over the South China Sea.

Vietnamese ground units clashed briefly with an estimated 20 Viet Cong in the bombed area, killing one guerrilla and wounding 10 others. The troops also reportedly destroyed about 6,000 pounds of rice, but no other major results were reported. The object of the mission was to catch a large concentration of Viet Cong believed to be in the jungle. Some reports said it was believed accompanied by Chinese Communist advisers. Two other Americans were killed and a third was wounded today in the Da Nang area, a U.S. military spokesman reported. He said one of the dead and the wounded man were victims of a U.S. Marine artillery round that fell short. The spokesman did not know the circumstances of the other death. The B52 jets of the Strategic Air Command flew 2,200 miles from Guam to make their first air strike in any combat. They rained high - explosive 1,000- pound and 750-pound bombs on the "D" zone jungle, a Viet Cong stronghold where the Communists were reported massing for a sneak attack. After the B52s, a squadron of B57 twin-jet fighter-bombers plastered the area with explosives, fire bombs, rockets and cannon shells. The Air Force declined to evaluate results of the raid until after a careful ground check Three 60-man units of Vietnamese troops and about a dozen U.S. advisers were sent in to reconnoiter, and an estimated platoon of guerrillas opened fire on one of the units. Helicopter fire helped drive off the Red attackers. The ground troops were pulled out of the area after 'severa hours. They brought three worn en and four-children with them but reportedly found no bodies Informants at Bien Hoa Ai Base, 15 miles north of Saigon said the B52s had missed part o the designated target area.

William F. McKee as head of the Federal Aviation Agency but only after hours of angry debate. At one point Thursday, it appeared the Senate had voted 35 to 33 to send the bill back to the Commerce Committee. But a switch of several votes saved the measure which was alter apprpved 46 to 20 and sent to the White House for Johnson's signature. The bill would waive the requirement that the head of the FAA be a civilian and permit McKee to draw $8,404.36»£in retirement pay in addition to the $30,000 annual salary. big excise tax cut bill is President Johnson's desk.

The launch was the loudest and one of the most spectacular ever witnessed here. Two minutes later the flight control center reported the solid boosters had cut off as planned and jettisoned, and the first stage of the central cylinder had ignited. The Titan 30 was heavily instrumented to provide data on the first firing of the combination. Of special interest were how precisely in.unison the two solid rockets burned, the vibration they created, their separation and the Ignition of the center rocket. ••••,.• The Air Force hopes to develop the Titan 3C as a workhorse, quick - reaction booster for a series of manned and unmanned military payloads. > The major project is* • manned orbiting laboratory—a space station that would keep astronauts in orbit a month or more to determine if man can effectively perform military tasks in space. ; • The astronauts would try to determine whether they or automatic satellites can better per- from such duties as reconnais- surveillance communications, and inspection and perhaps destruction of enemy satellites. • Two unmanned laboratories are scheduled for launching aboard Titan 3C rockets late next year.
