WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — U.S. B52 bombers made their seventh reported strike in South Viet Nam today, dropping their bombs in the northernmost raid so far announced for the jet bombers. A U.S. spokesman said 30 of the Strategic Air Command's eight-jet bombers dropped 500 tons of bombs during a 45- minute raid on "Viet Cong installations in Quang Tin Province, approximately 350 miles north northwest of Saigon." The raid was carried out at the request of the South Vietnamese government "against a suspected Viet Cong base near the Doxa," the spokesman said. The Doxa is a mountainous, mist-shrouded area north of Kontum that the Viet Cong has controlled for years. U.S. Marines and South Vietnamese troops joined in a regi- mentalized strike that overran the Viet Cong-dominated village of Chan Son, 10 miles south of the Da Nang air base. Striking in the face of sniper fire, they killed 25 persons, including about 5 civilians, and rounded up 80 suspects. The B52s flew today from their base on Guam. Last week they made a raid southeast of Siagon from Okinawa after being moved there because of a typhoon threat to Guam. On the ground, a big U.S. sweep southeast of Saigon ended today with meager results. The Viet Cong battalion supposed to be in the area was never found. Thuan Province 95 miles northeast of Saigon. Vietnamese casualties were reported "light" in both operations. Viet Cong guerrillas made scattered mortar attacks across | South Viet Nam Sunday. Government casualties were reported "moderate." Communist forces opened fire on 15 government positions south of Saigon. They also hit three outposts south of Hue, 390 miles north of Saigon, and knocked out 30 feet of a highway bridge and a section of railroad bridge near Da Nanag. A small U.S. Marine patrol near Da Nanag was caught in an open rice field by sniper fire. Cong guerrillas killed and three Three Viet were reported captured in the operation which sent nearly 2,000 American paratroopers and 1st Division artillerymen into the field last Thursday. The ground operation was preceded by the B52 bomber strike from Okinawa. Five Americans were wounded when one of their own artillery rounds fell short. Helicopters brought two battalions from the 173rd Airborne Brigade back to the Bien Hoa base before noon. A 1st Division battalion returned by helicopter and road convoy. Communist guerrillas continued a flurry of attacks against outposts south of Saigon in Long An Province. In all, 26 Viet Cong actions, mostly mortar harassment, were reported in the past 48 hours. A platoon of government troops suffered "extensive" casualties in a sharp clash at one of the outposts. A spokesman said no conclusions were being drawn from the increase in Viet Cong activity near the capital. "Perhaps the enemy wants to test our reaction," he said. Thirty-seven Viet Cong were reported killed in two government operations in the northern part of the country, 20 in Quang Ngai Province 330 miles northeast of Saigon and 17 in Binh "Home Rented Right Away"-For Rent Ad Cost Advertiser $1!

The guerrillas also fired on a South 'Korean military camp at Di An, near the Blen Hoa air base, Sunday night but no casualties were reported. U.S. war planes continued bombing raids against targets in North Viet Nam and suspected Viet Cong installations in South Viet Nam. Forward artillery observers claimed 230 Viet Cong were killed by air strikes in South Viet Nam during a 24- hour period ending Sunday. The government opened a mass military trial in Saigon today of 21 persons charged with undermining the war effort by signing various peace petitions. The tribunal has the power to impose death sentences. Defendants include Nguyen Long, an attorney who headed the now defunct "People's Self-Determination Movement," which advocated a cease-fire. One of two women on trial is Pham Thi Thanh Van, whose father was deported to the Communist North with two other peace movement leaders earlier this year. A U.S. spokesman said that James S. Killen, director of U.S. economic aid to South Viet Nam, is leaving his post to rex- turn to Washington. Kellen, 57, has administered the foreign aid program since July 1964. The spokesman did not say when Killen would leave his post. U.S. military commanders gathered in Honolulu today to discuss the 50,000-man buildup planned for Viet Nam. Among those attending were Gen.

Eisenhower has expressed disappointment with the United Nations' position on South Viet Nam. "I am disappointed that the United Nations has not shown the initiative to get the facts and marshal world opinion behind South Viet Nam's fight for life," he said. Eisenhower, winding up a Wisconsin vacation Sunday, called for support of President Johnson's policies in the Viet Nam conflict. The former president said the White House has facts not available to the public, adding: "It is futile and difficult for the private citizen to talk about what should be done in Viet Nam. To develop opposition in times of crisis is to split the country." Eisenhower made the comments to a newsman as he and his wife left nearby Woodruff by private railroad car to return to Gettysburg, Pa,, after a 13-day vacation in the Northern Wisconsin lakes region. A crowd of about 200 turned out in cold and rainy weather for the departure. The former president said, "I hope people come to see me because I was square with them as president and kept the country prosperous and at peace. I'm glad they aren't throwing rocks." The vacation was his sixth in the Minocqua area since World War II. He stayed at the private estate of New York art dealer Howard Young. "I had a wonderful time loafing, shooting and fishing," he said, adding he caught nearly the limit of bass in each of four outings. Asked if he would return in 1966, Eisenhower, 74, replied, "I can't predict a year ahead. At my age you can't plan that far away." ' retain a total veto on their use. Non-nuclear nations participating in the NATO force would be given some say In advance planning and would be consulted before nuclear weapons assigned to the force were used. The draft would make clear that such planning and consultation would not be a treaty violation. Soviet delegate Semyon K. Tsarapkin already has brushed aside this limitation on the Atlantic force, terming it meaningless. He has told the conference repeatedly that the Soviet Union will sign a treaty to restrict the spread of nuclear weapons only if it explicitly outlaws the proposed Atlantic force or any other arrangement giving West Germany "direct or indirect" control over nuclear weapons.

But we keep telling them that any treaty they sign will limit the eventual shape of the force." The treaty draft would bar the five nuclear powers — the United States, Russia, Britain, France and Red China — from supplying nuclear weapons or know-how to any other nation or group of nations. The world's non-nuclear powers would agree not to manufacture or acquire nuclear weapons. The proposal arose from a British plan submitted to the NATO council in Paris July 26. The four Western delegations at the disarmament conference — the United States, Britain, Canada and Italy — are working out a compromise version.

Replying to a nesxsman's question regarding the Mansfield report, Johnson said: "That was the result of a man who broke my confidence, and not only broke it but distorted it. I would brand it untrue and perhaps malicious." Johnson said the man-he was talking about was "one of the prominent members of another party" who had participated, In one of the White House conferences that preceded the President's Viet Nam decisions. There was no list of Republicans attending the meetings, but Ford, Senate GOP leader Everett M. Dirksen and Sen. Bourke B. Hickenlooper of Iowa were known to have been on hand. Dirksen couldn't be reached for comment. Hickenlooper said he had no idea what the President was talking about. Johnson said the unnamed Republican had held a background session with newsmen, meaning he gave them information but declined to be identified as the source. "Most of the people you deal with respect the confidence, but once in a while an inexperienced man, or a new one, or a bitter partisan has to play a little politics," Johnson said. Ford was chosen at the start of the current congressional session to serve as House Republican leader. Asked if the incident would affect future bipartisan consultations, Johnson said, "No, I'm not going to provoke any fight." He told newsmen Mansfield did not mention reserve forces in a written memo "and it was not in any of his discussions." • Ford's statement: "I am deeply concerned by the White House comment. Sen.
