Redlands Dally Facts 2 - Tuesday, May 11,1965 Viet Cong force overruns capital of province (Continued from Page 1) wood on cemetery grounds outside Saigon's military hospital. Tile wounded lay in long rows • in the hallways of the hospital. In air action against North Viet Nam today, U.S. Navy jets flew a dawn mission from the decks of the carrier Oriskany, scoring three' direct hits on a highway bridge 80 miles south • of Hanoi with nine tons of bombs. The counter-attack in South Viet Nam was aimed at Communist fortifications on a river bank Sli miles northeast of Song Be. Guerrilla forces dug in on the southern bank of a horseshoe bend in the Song Be River seven hours after they completely overran the town in one of the most determined Viet Cong attacks of the war. Heavy fighting raged through- 3ut the morning. Using Everything An American military spokesman said the Air Force was using "everything we can get a hold of" to attack the Communist entrenchments. Two U.S. Air Force B57 bombers were riddled by Viet Cong ground- fire and the navigator aboard one was slightly wounded. A Skyraider fighter-bomber was shot down but the pilot was rescued. American pilots flying strikes from the Vien Hoa airbase near Saigon said the Viet Cong seemed to be using "quad fifties" as anti-aircraft guns, weapons never before reported in guerrilla hands. The "quad fifties" are four 50-caliber machineguns aimed and fired simultaneously from mobile platforms. Invade Mess Hall Bold Viet Cong shock troops attacking in the darkness of the early morning invaded the mess hall in the U.S. military advisory compound and fought a close-range gunbattle with American soldiers around the dinner tables. Several guerrillas were killed in the mess hall duel. Other guerrillas captured five armored cars from the Vietnamese battalion garrisoned in Song Be and turned their weapons on government soldiers, then used the vehicles to attack [he airstrip just south of town. Withering Communist fire prevented airborne evacuation of the American and Vietnamese casualties. It was the first time in four years that the Viet Cong had managed to overrun any of South Viet Nam's 45 provincial capitals and authorities feared the assault may be the opening shot in a full-scale Communist offensive in the central mountains.

(NEA Telephoto) may reach moon vicinity today MOSCOW (UPI)— The Soviet Union's latest space probe, Luna 5, was expected to reach the vicinity of the moon today if all goes according to plan. The space shot remained shrouded in secrecy. The last position given for Luna 5 was late Sunday. At that time the Soviets aid it was 68,200 miles from earth on the 250,000-mile journey. (In Washington, American space experts said the 3,254- pcund spacecraft should be capable of landing scientific instruments on the moon. In the least, it would be able to take photographs of the lunar surface in similar fashion to the U.S. Ranger moonshots.) Western experts here speculated the Russians might attempt either a soft landing on the moon or a maneuver to bring Luna 5 back to earth af ter orbiting the moon. Soviet authorities were silent on Luna 5's progress, apparently waiting to see whether the probe would be successful.

"You mean it's better to have loved and lost. right before your birthday?" Picl(ering feels Russians seek to step ahead PASADENA (UPI)—Dr. William Pickering, who headed America's Ranger moon program, has speculated Russia's Luna 5 was meant to push the Soviets a "step ahead of us" in moon exploration. Pickering, director of the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said Monday there were three mam possibilities concerning Luna 5: A lunar land, an orbital mission or a fly-by mission. However, Pickering said, he did not expect Russia would be trying a project similar to the the successful Ranger program, which three limes sent back to earth clear pictures of portions of the moon's surface. The Surveyor, the next step in the U.S. moon exploration, is scheduled for a soft landing on the moon in late 1966. "The history of their space flights," Pickering said, "show, tliey invariably try to step ahead of us, although they don't always succeed. ToJ; Cli'nf Walker big hit with natives in india even Tieburg asks Wirti for more braceros By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Olijit Walker, the scourge of American Indians during his television Western days, took on the India Indians in a recent movie and emerged second only to the Taj Mahal as a tourist attraction. The 6-foot, 6-inch actor towered over the natives of Mysore who followed him around as if he were a roadshow Gulliver. Walker's picture, "M a y a" co-stars a white elephant which was also dwarfed by the muscular actor. Even the tigers in the picture suffered inferiority complexes when the 250- pound star hove into a scene. All in all, it was about a stand -off whether the tigers would eat Walker or vice-versa. "There were plenty of tigers and elephants over there, but no horses, thank the Lord," said Walker, in recollection of his saddle sore days aboard old Paint In the "Cheyenne" series. But if Clint was pleased by the absence of oat burners, you can bet the Indian horses were equally joyous, considering Walker's bulk. And as for eating tigers. Walker might have welcomed tiger steak. He was forced to subsist on bananas, oranges and coconuts to avoid eating the searing curry dishes and drinking native beverages. "I lost some weight over tliere on my diet," he said. "But you just can't afford to take chances with the food. You can come down witli a hug and it takes years to recover." The big guy wasn't critical of India, however. "I loved the Indian people. They're interesting, hospitable and easy-going. And I got along with them very well. Most of them didn't speak English and I wasn't able to learn their dialects, but we communicated with sign language and smiles." Because Walker was a physical oddily among the shorter people of southern India they never tired of dogging his footsteps. Cole Porter left 100 songs unpublished NEW YORK (UPI) — Death did not end the fabulous outpouring of Cole Porter's songs. The late songwriter's' publisher Chappel & Co., disclosed today that Porter left more than 100 unpublished songs in his Waldorf Towers apartment when he died last October at 72. The trustees of Porter's estate will decide whether or not to publish them. "The material is a rich musical heritage," said Dr. Albert Sirmay, chief editor of Chappell. "There are a dozen excellent songs and enough music for one or two excellent Broadway scores." Sirmay found the songs in a searcli of Porter's manuscripts undertaken at the request of the fongwriter's attorney, John Wharton. The attorney is trustee Df the estate and co-executor with the United States Trust Co. Df the Cole Porter musical and literary trust. Wharton said he had copies made of all of Porter's manuscripts and sent the originals to Yale University as provided in the songwriter's will. The attorney insured the unpublished works for SIOO.OOO. Wharton said he already has received a number of bids for the unpublished songs, which bear such titles as "My Louisa," "Hip Hip Hooray and Andy Jackson," "I Can Do Without Tea In My Teapot," and "Just Another Page in Your Diary."

Tom McNamara, a co-owner >f the firm, said the farm had been "swamped" with workers whose names and Social Security numbers should have been taken by state employment officials. Many were turned away, he said, because "we just :ouldn't process them." Glenn Brockway, the Labor Department's regional head, said in San Francisco that the inability to process workers "seems a rather odd excuse in ilie middle of a labor crisis."
