Cross then was taken to the Travis County Jail where he was held without bond. ?ec/s Set Up Steady Barrage Against Vietnamese Outposts n Minister Alex Quaison- Sackey of Ghana, diplomatic sources said today. The letter, from Ghana President Kwame Nkrumah, con- ained nothing to brighten the irospects for peace negotia- ,ions, it was understood. Quaison-Sackey would not talk to newsmen about its contents. The message, delivered at the White House Friday, had aroused considerable advance speculation because, only a day earlier, Nkrumah had received a communication from President Ho Chi Minh of North Viet Nam, with whom he is friendly. * * * Quaison-Sackey, who is also president of the U.N. General Assembly, met with Johnson and, the White House later indicated, received assurances the United States has no present plans to bomb Hanoi, capital of North Viet Nam. U.S. officials have repeatedly said as much. Presidential Press Secretary Bill D. Moyers said Quaison- Sackey reported Hanoi had expressed concern about a visit from Nkrumah because of possible bombings. Moyers said Johnson had told the envoy "That concern was unnecessary because there is no U.S. mili tary action against Hanoi . . "not a bomb has fallen there'." But when asked whether this meant there is no plan to bomb the city in the foreseeable fu ture, Moyers said, "I would no read into the statement any thing beyond what is obvious." He said Johnson also had told Quaison-Sackey "that the quick est way to peace is for aggres sion from the north to cease.' There was no discussion o: peace negotiations, Moyer; said. He told newsmen the de tails of the correspondence be tween Johnson and Nkrumah will be made public after John son replies to the communication ne received. * * * Nkrumah is one of the four Commonwealth peace envoy picked last month by the Lon don Conference of Common wealth Nations to explore the possibilities of peace in Viet Nam. Hanoi immediately said i would not welcome a vsit by the four. The Communsts re ceived, however, Kwesi Armah Nkrumah's special envoy, who brought back to Accra a specia message from Ho Chi Minh. Nkrumah apparently indi cated in his letter to Johnson he would go to Hanoi himself. In addition to being a member o the Commonwealth team, he was one of the 17 heads of state and prime ministers of non aligner nations who signed an appeal last March in Belgradi for peace talks on Viet Nam The appeal was swiftly rejected by the Hanoi regime. a car containing a mother and| Dist.

He said he "absolutely" whether the statement men tioned any sexual assault on the women. In a statement to Austin police early in the investigation, Cross said he had dated Miss Stark several times and had talked to her over the telephone July 18. Garrison quoted Cross' statement as saying the women were slain in Austin in midafternoon of July 18. The police director refused, however, to divulge the alleged motive or the place where the statement said — if it did — the women were killed. He said the statement implicated no one other than Cross. Officers said Cross came to headquarters alone to make the statement. Garnson said, "we are pretty ously hurt.

The Viet Vietnamese Cong shelled the positions, ranging rom 100 miles to 125 miles iouthwest of Saigon, with 60mm and 81mm mortar rounds, an officer reported. Vietnamese casualties were •eportec 1 as "light" in some of he attacks. There were no reports of casualties in others. A Navy Al Skyraider was lost n a raid on the Dong Hoi bar- •acks 40 miles north of the border. A military spokesman said were sighted and all U.S. planes returned safely. Bomb disposal squads were removing explosives scattered along a main street in Nha Trang following the crash of a U.S. Air Force B57 jet bomber. The Canberra smashed into the city 200 miles northeast of Saigon Friday. Military authorities listed 14 Vietnamese killed, 67 Vietnamese injured and 8 Americans injured. They said eight of the injured Vietnamese were in serious condition. The two crew members of the plane had parachuted after setting their disabled craft on automatic pilot headed toward the South China Sea. It was reported the plane had been hit by enemy ground fire and it was Rally Is Held In Park Near White House California, Indiana Have Demonstrations WASHINGTON (AP) Critics by the hundreds demonstrated in Washington, California and Indiana against President Johnson's Viet Nam policies.

A smaller Sinatra Weddina Rumors Persist EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Frank Sinatra's chartered yach Southern Breeze prepared t leave Martha's Vineyard today carrying the 49-year-old singer, his friends, and 19-year-old sweetheart, Mia Farrow, to Boston. Ashore, rumors and unanswered questions outnumbered the sea gulls. Reports have persisted for several days that Sinatra and Miss Farrow, the schoolgirl in television's "Peyton Place", would leave the yacht to be he plane was one of 29 from he carrier Midway that dropped 5 tons of bombs on the area. rhe Skyraider was hit by ground fire, plunged to the ground and the pilot was presumed killed, the spokesman arlripH ZLUUCU. * * * In another development, a government unit was reported ;o have uncovered a major Viet Cong medical facility in a jun- jle area 35 miles southwest of Saigon. The medical facility reportedly consisted of 14 wards, each capable of holding from 10 to 20 satients Five tons of medicine ;quipment and supplies were lOund Other Viet Cong products seized included 2,000 "items of arms and ammunition" and 1,000 tons of rice, officials said. In other action, the Viet Cong renewed a mortar attack at the special forces camp at Due Co, 215 miles northeast of Saigon. The camp in Pleiku Province in the highlands was the scene of heavy fighting earlier in the week, but the spokesman said no casualties were reported there today. Meanwhile, forward air controllers calling air strikes for U.S. and Vietnamese war planes in South Viet Nam were said to have indicated 200 guerrillas were killed in a 24-hour period ending today. The figure was not confirmed by body count In air strikes into North Viet Nam today, an explosives plant 55 miles northwest of Hanoi was hit by eight U.S. Air Force FlOSs supported by five . other planes, briefing officers said. * * * Pilots said they destroyed four buildings with 24 tons of 750-pounc? bombs. The officers gave this account of other raids during the day: Four Air Force FlOSs attacked a barracks area about 70 miles north of the South Viet Nam border and pilots reported inflicting light damage. One flight of Navy A4 Sky- hawks from the carrier Independence hit a petroleum storage area about 130 miles south of Hanoi. Pilots reported seven tanks damaged heavily with fires observed at the target. Four other Skyhawks from the Independence attacked a barracks area about 110 miles north of the border and a warehouse about 80 miles north of it. Pilots reported that the warehouse blew apart from secondary explosions. About 65 miles south of Hanoi. two other Skyhawks from the Independence attacked railroad cars and barges with rockets and pilots reported inflicting heavy damage. • Some groundfire was encountered over target areas, spokesmen said, but no enemy planes ueiievfii a zauity engine caused it to veer off the course set by the automatic pilot. The pilot, Capt. Lawrence Horacek, 29, of Ludington, Mich., and his navigator, 1st Lt. Robert Johnson, 25, of Osawatomie, Kan., were picked up uninjured by a helicopter within five minutes after their parachutes touched the water, a spokesman said. The Viet Cong's call for help from Hanoi has raised speculation about the motives behind it. Some viewed the appeal, broadcast today by Hanoi Radio, as an indication that the Communists are feeling the manpower pinch. U.S. officials claim the guerrillas have suffered heavy losses recently. * ^ ^ w W Another theory was that the statement was a prelude to some new action by Hanoi or a move to strengthen its bargaining position should there be a new approach to negotiations. It may also have been a response to President Johnson's July 28 announcement that the United States would add 50,000 troops to the U.S. forces in Viet Nam, bringing their strength to 125,000 Up to now, Communist North Viet Num has disclaimed direct involvement in the war. But U.S. officials say units of the North's regular army have been identified in the South and there has been steady infiltration. The North Vietnamese broadcast said the guerrillas want help "to increase our forces and step up resistance of the war 10 times more vigorously." The Viet Cong's statement was quoted as ruling out all negotiations unless its political arm — the National Liberation Front — was included among the participants. The Soviet Union declared Friday that the 50,000 additional American troops are intended to "break the will of the people of Viet N:?m." The defense committee of the South Korean National Assembly approved a plan to send about 15,000 soldiers to South Viet Nam. A session of the assembly will deal with the proposal next week. South Korea already has 2,500 troops in Viet Nam for engineering and medical duties. A U S. spokesman in Saigon announced that the Viet Cong in July compared with a total of 2,750 such casualties in June. Total Vietnamese government losses for July — killed, wounded and captured — were put at 3,850. Of these 1,335 died in combat. South Viet Nam's military government said today former strongman Lt.

Scores of police were on guard against outbreaks. In Emeryville, Calif., about 300 pickets tried unsuccessfully to block a 22-car train hauling troops to the Oakland, Calif., Army terminal. In B'oomington, Ind., more than 100 Indiana University students and a few professors paraded downtown with such signs as "Stop the slaughter of Vietnamese people." The assembly in Washington plans to climax its protest meeting Monday with a march from the Washington monument to the Capitol. A 100-member delegation of the assembly sought unsuccessfully to present a "declaration of conscience" to President Johnson. When he refused to to | receive it personally, about 60 pickets staged a sit-in at an entrance to the White House grounds. The sit-in party sought to continue its vigil through the night, but by midnight it had dwindled to a band of about a dozen sharing one water jug and a few packs of cigarettes. There were two arrests. President and Mrs. Johnson were away for much of the sit- in. They left about 9 p.m. for Camp David, presidential retreat near Thurmont, Md. Earlier, speakers at the mlly here denounced fighting in Viet Nam, called for admission of Red China to the United Nations and noted that the day marked the 20th anniversary of the dropping of an atomic bomb on Hirshima, Japan. Folk singer Joan Baez and other musicians performed between speeches as the demonstrators, many wearing blue jeans and sandals, milled about. The Emeryville, Calif., demonstration was the second of its kind in two days. Three hundred pickets gathered at the Sante F« ; ,Jlailroad crossing, seeking to halt the troop train by sitting rails. As the train slowly approached, a flying wedge of about 30 deputies from the Alameda County sheriff's office forced them off the tracks. The sign-carrying demonstrators booed the deputies. Soldiers in the cars booed back. No cne was injured or arrested. At the Bloomington, Ind., demonstration, students passed out i printed "declaration of conscience" urging draft-age students to refuse to serve if called into the armed services. "We encourage those who can conscientiously do so to refuse to serve in the armed forces and to ask for a discharge if they are already in," the declaration stated in part. Meanwhile, in Congress the House Armed Services Committee approved a bill calling for a five-year prison term and a $10,000 fine for anyone convicted of destroying his draft card. LAKEWOOD, Calif.
