(UPl Coblephoto) Forty U.S. in No. Viet Nam bomb SAIGON (UPI)-Forty U.S. Navy planes bombed targets in North Viet Nam today in another raid that underscored American determination to press on with the air war against the Hanoi regime. It was the second consecutive day of air strikes on North Vietnamese territory following a six-day pause to watch for signs of Communist readiness to negotiate a settlement. There were no signs. In South Viet Nam, a large force of U.S. Army paratroopers swept through the Vietnamese countryside today in an area known to be crawUng with Communist guerrillas. Today's air raid inflicted "severe damage" on military barracks and a mihtary radio station, according to an American spokesman. Navy pilots operating from the aircraft carrier Coral Sea reported three buildings de-| stroyed and the supply area heavily damaged in an attack on barracks at Hoan Lo, about! 40 miles north of the border with the South Viet Nam. The spokesman said a separate strike on the Chanh Ho region, near Hoan Lo, destroyed a power house, damaged another building and left the administration building in flames. A total of 50 tons of bombs and rockets were dumped on the two targets. Pilots said they encountered only light anti-aircraft fire. No enemy aircraft were sighted and all planes returned safely to the Coral Sea from the 45- minute raid, the spokesman said. First of War The operation by the American paratroopers was the first of the war for the 173rd Airborne Brigade, a combat-ready unit which arrived in So u t li tal.

Judge Perluss said Proposition 15. passed by the voters 2-1' last November, violated free speech sections of the U.S. and the California Constitutions. The suit challenging the proposition was filed by the owners of Subscription Television. Inc.. which had operated in Los Angeles and San Francisco until i the measure was approved. Perluss noted that the proposition, now a part of the state constitution, did not actually ban pay-TV. It simply outlawed making a charge for the service. "This is like saying you can distribute newspapers but you can't make a charge. It would be ridiculous to say this is not violating fredom of the press," he said.

"I'm all for such an inquiry at this time." Burns said. "I think it's the proper way to proceed but I'm not proposing to force a legislative inquiry over ever yonc's opposition," said Unruh. The committee apparently would look into the December free speech student demonstra- tins at the university's Berkeley campus and study other administrative problems.

Exploding car kills youth in Pennsylvania HAZLETON, Pa. (UPI) - It was election day and Michael Ruggiero. 17, was home from school. Mike's mother had to do some grocery shopping so he decided to give her a lift in dad's car. Jlike walked to the firehouse where his father, a power shovel operator for a strip mining firm, was on duty Tuesday as an election judge and got the key to the 1958 model car, parked only half a block aw^ay. The youth turned on the ignition and the car was blasted to bits in a puff of black smoke. Mike was killed instantly. An FBI team joined Hazleton and state authorities today in an effort to fmd out what type of explosion caused Mike's death. Authorities were unable im.- mediately to determine a motive in the case. They said neither Ruggiero nor his had any known enemies nor had either received any Lhreats. The blast rocked a residential area and sent bits of metal flying in all directions. Mike, one of eight Ruggiero children, was a member of the high school track team and tuba player in the band. He was scheduled to be graduated June 7. The brigade was sent from its KJaneohe Marine Corps Air Station home base last March for dilty in the Far East. Most of the brigade units are now in South Viet Nam under command of the Third Marine Amphibious Force. Last week the dependents at Kaneohe were advised that the transfer is permanent and the I unit will not return to Kaneohe. It will lose its identity and will be replaced in Hawaii by anoth- I er First .Marine Brigade, i .^s soon as the permanent transfer orders are formally issued, the 6.000 dependents still in Hawaii will have 60 days in which to make their decisions. The Marine Corps figures there are about 1,700 families invoh'ed in the transfer and a conference was held Tuesday with representatives of Honolulu's major moving firms. They estimate that they would have to move about 30 families a day to complete the transfer. It will be difficult, one mover said, but it can be done. judiciary subcommittee Katzenbach said a new gun law is needed because mail order sales of firearms "make murder easy."
