8 - Thurs., May 20, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts U.S. planes attack Reds with bombs and leaflets (Continued on Page 2) don't let the Chinese and Vietnamese Communists use your bones and blood to wage the war in the south." The Communists charged that the planes came much closer to Hanoi. Tass, the official Soviet news agency, said U.S. reconnaissance planes led by 12 jet tighter-bombers came within 12 miles of Hanoi. The Tass dispatch, dateUned Hanoi, said North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gunners opened fire. It made no mention of hits. An American spokesman reporting the leaflet raid said other U.S. planes bombed military targets farther south of Hanoi, including an ammunition depot, railroad bridges and rolling stock and an offshore radar station. The leaflet raid near Hanoi was part of the continuing American effort to bring the Hanoi regime to the conference WHOLESALE PRICES In glass bottles, Plostic cartons or 10-qt.

The daylight missions followed a pre-dawn strike in which four U.S. Navy jets raided a North Vietnamese truck convoy with a barrage of rockets fired under the light of parachute flares. In South Viet Nam, U.S. paratroopers on what was officially described as a training exercise fought a pre-dawn fire fight with Communist guerrillas nine miles from the big American air base at Bien Hoa.

HOLLY\VOOD (UPI) — "ABC Scope" Wednesday night presented a strong, frank, no-nou- sense television report on the taboo subject of venereal disease. Although the half-hour program of the weekly public affairs series could well have used double the time allotted to it, it wasted very little of the 30 minutes in establishing its point of the necessity of frankness in order to reduce the huge increase in the disease, especially among youngsters. The decision of ".ABC Scope" to tackle the subject came after a publicized controversy in which NBC-TV decided against doing a segment of its fictional i series, "Mr. Novak," on the had in fact attacked North Vietnamese territory last Monday and on May 12.

Pilots returning to the au"craft carrier Coral Sea from today's early morning mission said they hit the convoy 90 miles south of Hanoi and knocked at least five of the 15 vehicles. A Navy spokesman said no anti - aircraft fire or enemy planes were encountered. The clash with the Viet Cong was the first for the American with Dominican rivals (Continued from page 1> there was no report of casualties.

However, the viewer who shivers to think of the usual formula-type treatment of many controversial matters by video series is today perhaps thankful that "ABC Scope" rather than "Mr. Novak" handled the subject. Howard K. Smith, who was the host and narator, said near the start of the program that often when television discusses controvei-sial matters, parents are advised not to let the children watch. For this one, he suggested, "let tliem watch," the reason being the involvement of so many youngsters. Those interviewed included four oulpatients — a 28-year-old female graduate student who noted "it can happen in the best of families"; a IT-year-old high school boy: a married man who infected his wife, and a homosexual contribution to the disease was adding to the problem. Smith said it was generally considered "indecent" to talk about venereal disease. Yet the program made the point that tracing it is a main problem nowadays in order to help prevent its recurrence — but in addition to the social stigma that holds back frankness, there is the reluctance of some doctors to report such cases — and the "so what!" attitude of many young persons in this generation. As of now, the program noted, syphilis and gonorrhea together are the nation's No. 1 communicable disease. In addition, ABC- TV brought out in its work on the show, about 3,000 Americans contract VD every day, an estimated 12,500 die of the disease each year, and approximately 55 per cent of known VD cases in the United Slates "are accounted for by persons between the ages of 10 and 24."

Pakistani jetliner crashes, 121 dead six injured (Continued from page 1) and doing nothing to help the survivors." Only two other single plane crashes have taken a higher toll. The worst occurred June 3, 1962, at Orly Airport near Paris. A chartered Boeing 707 jet hurtled off the runway and crashed, killmg 130 persons, including 121 from Atlanta, Ga., who were touring European art centers. The sweptwing jetliner which crashed today was carrying 115 passengers and a crew of 12. It left Karachi Wednesday night, stopped in Dhahran in the Persian Gulf and was five minutes away from the Cairo Airport runway when it disappeared from radar screens. Airport tower officials and workers on the nmway reported seeing "a fireball" in the pre-dawn sky at the time of the disaster. The weather was clear. The flight had received wide publicity in Pakistan as the first direct commercial link between Communist Chma and the Middle East, a distance of about 5,000 miles. Pakistan Airlines began flying to Red Chma by way of Canton and Shanghai in 1963 but began its Karachi-to-Cairo run only last week. The same plane made the first official flight here one week ago Wednesday but today's trip was billed as tlie 'inaugural." Twenty - six newspapermen, most of them Pakistanis, v/ere aboard the iE-fated plane, along with some government officials. Authorities here said Hussein Shehata, first secretary of the United Arab Republic's embassy in Karachi, was a passen-' ger. Legislation to curb drunk driving suffers setback DELAYED ACTION PORTLAND, Mauie (UPI) When the local action group began its anti-poverty drive by an- aouncmg that eight months would be devoted to a study of the situation, tlie Portland Evening Express editorialized: "Poverty in Portland doesn't seem to be in any immediate danger." By De Van L. Shumway United Press International SACRAMENTO (UPI) — Gov. Edmund G. Brown's request for the legislature to make a "systematic effort" to curb drunken drivers in California today suffered a severe and perhaps fatal setback. The governor issued the call months ago — in his state-of- the-state message to the lawmakers, delivered in January. But late Wednesday the Sen ate abruptly killed two administration-backed bills aimed at controlling the drunken driver, despite a plea that California has been laggmg behind other states in trying to keep traffic deaths under control. The two bills, toughest of the session, were introduced by Sen. Randolph Collier, D-Yreka, veteran chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee. One bill would have forced a driver arrested on a drunken driving charge to either take a chemical test to measure the alcohol in his system or lose his driver's hcense for six months. The test could be taken of blood, breath or urine. The other would have set .10 per cent of alcohol in the blood — one part in one-thousand — as the pomt where a person is presumed drunk. Between .10 and .05 per cent, it left thej question open. Below .05 per cent there was a presumption o£ sobriety. The bills were based on an "implied consent" concept—that by driving, a person automatically gives his consent to take a drunkenness test if an officer has "reasonable ground" to consider the driver drunk. Collier had postponed floor action on the bills in an effort to gain support. But when debate began. Sen. Fred Farr, D-Carmel, offered amendments to increase the amount of alcohol a driver might have in his system before he is presumed drunk to .15 per cent. Suddenly, Farr withdrew his amendments. He said he had just learned that the American Medical Association supported the percentages in the legislation. The Senate then began debate. Sen. John C. Begovich, D- Jackson, broke in to move that the bills be "indefinitely postponed" — equivalent to killing them. Moving swiftly, the Senate on a voice vote resoundly approved the motion. Only two or three scattered "no" votes were heard. Other legislative action: Work week — -Assemblyman John L. Burton, D-San Francisco, dropped his fight to enact a statewide 35-hour work week. Burton asked members of the Industrial Relations Committee to send his 35-hour bill to a between-sessions study committee. Meanwhile, the .Assembly Civil Service and State Personnel Committee Wednesday approved, 5-4, a bill by Assemblyman Charles W. Meyers, D-San Francisco, to establish a 35- hour work week for state em­ ployes at a cost of $100 million a year. But the measure faced a fight in tlie Ways and Means Committee. Housing — The Assembly Finance and Insurance Committee cleared legislation creating a new state department of housing and community development. The bill by Assemblyman Willie L. Brown Jr., D-San Francisco, would abolish the present state Division of Housing. Lie detectors — The Assembly Industrial Relations Committee killed a bill by Assemblyman John T. Knox, D-Richmond, aimed at preventing private employers from using lie detectors to quiz their present or prospective employes. LONG HOME SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (UPI) — Howard H. Holmes, an engineer from nearby Goleta. has won his two-year battle with county officials to build the home he wants in Isla Vista Near the Ocean.
