A U.S. military spokesman also reported that Viet Cong troops "continued harrassing on four of them. The strikes followed a nightlong string of aerial assaults by 28 jets and prop-driven planes from the carriers Coral Sea and Midway. A Navy spokesman said the planes unleashed 15 tons of bombs on a variety of targets, including bridges, trucks, junks and road-building equipment. All of the planes were reported to have returned safely.

But on this May 9 the accent was not on spiteful vindication so much as strength — sleek, mighty, scientific strength contained in the startling display of rocketry. Uncovered for the world to note and remember: —The 120-foot, pale green, "Brezhnev Blockbuster" — roughly like America's Titan-88. Commentators said it was similar to the 1.6 million pound thrust rockets which orbited Vostok and Voskhod — spaceships with a payload of up to si.x tons. Experts speculated such a rocket might carry a warhead of some 50 megatons or so. —The three-stage "Little Sister" — similar to Americas 59- foot Minuteman. Powered by cheap and "reliable" solid fuel, and launchable from underground silos, according to offi cial reports. —The "Iron Maiden" middle range rocket, cloaked in a sheath, mounted atop a dark, tracked vehicle. —A new anti-tank weapon, capable of firing six missiles, guided by radio signals. —A medium, low-silhouette tank. Identified as the T-62. U.S. to try moon surface landing shot in fall CAPE KEN-NEDY (UPI) America's next moon shot will be an attempt to soft land a Project Surveyor spacecraft on the lunar siu^ace this fall. Russia's new Luna-five moon probe follows by seven weeks the close of the U.S. ranger series that produced 17.239 close- up pictures of tlie lunar landscape with tliree successful television craft. The detailed pictures taken by Rangers 7. 8 and 9 showed that Uie moon's surface is smooth enough for Apollo manned landings, but it is up to surveyor probes to land gently on the limar surface to see if it is hard enough. The first of the spidery 2,250- pound Surveyors is tentatively scheduled for launch in late September by an Atlas-Centaur rocket. The shot, however, hinges on the successful test flight in July of an Atlas- Centaur booster. The first of the Surveyors will be an engineering test model and will carry only two television cameras — one to photograph the moon before landing and the otlier to scan the lunar surface after landing. Later Surveyors wiU carry another camera and will also be equipped with instruments to drill and sample the moon's crust, feel moonquakes, measure micrometeorites and study the strength of tlie lunar surface. Soviets latest moon probe streaks in space MOSCOW (UPD-Luna Five, the Soviet Union's newest moon probe, streaked through space today on an unspecified mission. Experts said the rocket could involve either close-up picture taking or an attempted soft landing. The official Tass news agency announced the launching of the moon shot Sunday but gave few details. The rocket is expected to reach the vicinity of the moon on Wednesday. If Luna Five does achieve a soft landing, it would steal yet another march from the United States in the race to land a man on the moon. American space scientists are planning an automated lunar exploration with the Surveyor Project before attempting any manned launchings. A terse Tass announcement described Luna Five as an "automatic station" equipped "with various measuring apparatus for conducting scientific research." It said the launching was "effected by a multi-stage rocket." "Tlie last stage of the rocket was first placed into an orbit of an artificial satellite of the earth and then, in accordance with the pre-set program, launched the automatic station on a trajectory toward the moon." But according to usual Soviet practice, the KremUn withheld specifics apparently until scientists were sure the mission was a success. The Tass announcement did not say whether Luna Five carried camera equipment for close up photographs. The vehicle weighs 3,427.2 pounds, Tass said. Hai Yen region of An Xuyen Province, about 100 miles south of Saigon. Hai Yen is the headquarters of the famed "sea swallows," a counter-guerrilla band of religious followers commanded by the "fighting father," Roman Catholic Rev. .\guyen Lac Hoa. Early today, guerrillas over ran an outpost about 45 miles have made good on its threat to send "volunteers" to South Viet Nam. The presence of Chinese speakers in Viet Cong ranks was reported Sunday by the commander of a South Vietnamese army battalion involved in a series of clashes with Communist forces during the week at Ai Sonan.iend in the Saigon area, southwest ofi The Peking regime rilla units. The statement by the South Vietnamese commander was the first on-the-scene report. At least 28 Vietnamese soldiers were killed and 46 others wounded in guerrilla assaults on the capital of Hau Nghia Province, two nearby towns and army outpost — all within 30 miles of Saigon. The Viet Cong also seized temporary control of Buon Sar village and a nearby strategic Highway 79 miles northeast of Saigon and ambushed the government relief force sent to drive them out. Guerrillas occupied the village Friday afternoon and col lected "taxes" from vehicles passing along Highway 20 for more than 24 hours before a government battalion drove them off. Capt. Vance R.

Navy Pilot Killed In the air war against North Viet Nam Sunday, the pilot of a U.S. Navy F8 Crusader jot was killed during a strafing run against a camouflaged truck near the town of Cu Due. The cause of the crash was unknown. Other pilots reported no anti-aircraft fire over the target. In another raid Sunday. 52 U.S. Air Force planes and 18 Vietnamese planes raided the city of Vinh Linh just north of the border. Pilots reported destroying or damaging 30 buildings. In Saigon, South Viet Nam's powerful Buddhist Center issued a communique urging the government to declare a 24-hour ceasefire in honor of the anniversary of the birth of Buddha next Saturday. The communique was signed by the Thieh (Reb.) Tinh Khiet. There was no immediate reaction from either the government or the "Liberation" radio of the Viet Cong.

WASHINGTON (UPD - The Senate leadership cautiously claimed today that a liberal- backed amendment to ban slate and local poU taxes will be rejected on a showdown vote Tuesday. The amendment to tlie voting rights bill is opposed by both Senate party leaders and by the administration on grounds it might make tlie measure un- conslituional.

The Ku Klux Klan staged a parade and held rallies Sunday at Anniston, Ala., a city whose officials are trying to forget the burning of a "freedom^ rider" bus on Mother's Day four years ago.

The officla Peking news agency reported that Gen. Lo Jui- ching, chief of the general staff of the Red Chinese army, said: "Our principle is: We will not attack unless we are attacked. If we are attacked, we will certainly counter - attack. We shall wipe out anybody who dares to attack us. "On whatever scale, the United States attacks us, we will reply on the same scale. We always mean what we say. We are fully prepared for war." The NONA dispatch, moni tored in Tokyo, appeared to confirm a reported statement made earlier by Red Chinese Communist chief Mao Tze-tung in an interview with American journalist Edgar Snow. Mao was quoted as saying that China will not go to war against the United States in Viet Nam unless its own territory is attacked. Scuba divers seek to recover plane crash victims OCEAN CITY, Md. (UPI)Scuba divers sought today to recover the bodies of Carole Tyler, former beauty queen and key figure in the Bobby Baker investigation, and a pilot who were killed Sunday when their plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. Miss Tyler, 26. a hazel-eyed beauty from Lenoir City, Tenn., was aboard an old single - engine Waco biplane flown by Robert H. Davis, 43, of Huntington, W. Va. Davis was stunt- flying when the plane plummeted into the sea about 200 yards off shore from Bakers' Carousel Motel. The Coast Guard said the wTeckage had been located in water about 23 feet deep. Rescue boats reaching the scene shortly after the crash could find no signs of any survivors. Baker flew to Ocean City from Washington in a chartered plane when he heard of the accident. He said that he was convinced Miss Tyler was aboard the plane after talking with her roommate. Baker, former secretary to Senate Democrats, was aboard one of the Coast Guard boats participating in the search operation when it resumed about 8 a.m. EDT. Miss Tyler's personal physician. Dr. Joseph Bailey of Washington, was with him. Miss Tyler's roommate was not identified, but motel em ployes said she was a girl named "Dee." Baker said that Miss Tyler, who was his secretary, had arrived at the swank motel several days ago and was doing some work for him there.
