Journal "Pg Major Viet Cong Supply Depot Hit By GEORGE ESPER Associated Press Writer Wednesday Aug. 7-SAIGON (AP) - A U.S.-South Vietnamese task force invaded a major Viet Cong supply depot and killed 219 enemy soldiers in a week of clashes that took American infantrymen deeper into the Mekong Delta than ever before, military spokesmen announced today. South Vietnamese military headquarters said there were no allied fatalities and only six U.S. infantrymen and three South Vietnamese marines were wounded. A spokesman attributed the unusual kill ratio to American helicopter gunships and artillery, which were credited with killing most of the claimed enemy dead. The fighting swirled in am out of three provinces centerec about 125 miles southwest o Saigon on the fringes of the U Minn forest, a Viet Cong sane · tuary virtually untouched b; '. government troops for morc " than 20 years. ; . Amored troop carriers from the U.S. Navy's Riverine Force moved up and down the rivers and canals with gunboat escorts, carrying more than 1,000 American infantrymen from the 9th Division and 500 South Vietnamese marines info action. d, but the Leathernecks re- ulsed the invaders. Enemy asualties were not known. East of Khc Sanh, enemy gun- ers shot down a Marine CH46 .clicopter. The crew and pas- engers were rescued unarmed, headquarters said. Using an explosive-laden raft, Hie Viet Cong blew up the Ben * * * Luc pontoon bridge on the main route between Saigon and the .Mekong Delta, but South Vietnamese engineers repaired the damaged pontoons by 1 p.m. and reopened the road. The Viet Cong blew up the permanent bridge two months ago, and the pontoon bridge is being used until the other or* is repaired. * * * Admits Presence Of NYN Troops At the other end of South Vietnam, U.S. Marines and South Vietnamese paratroopers reported killing 75 North Vietnamese troops in clashes Tuesday south of Da Nang, an area of intensified fighting in the past two weeks. Allied losses included one Marine and 10 South Vietnamese killed, 14 South Vietnamese and 22 Marines wounded, and two South Vietnamese missing. Enemy Overrun In. one clash 10 miles south of Da Nang, U.S. Marines from the 5th Regiment came under heavy machine-gun, mortar and recoilless rifle fire.

The Graphic said the premier made the statement in an interview with the magazine's assistant publisher, J. Antonio Araneta Jr., and his wife. If true, the admission would be the first public acknowledgement by a North Vietnamese official that troops from the North are operating in the South. The U.S. government believes that such an admission by North Vietnam might provide the basis for a discussion at the Paris peace talks of ways to get the North Vietnamese out of the South. Arancla reported that he asked Pham: "Your govern mcnt, in public statements, re fuses to admit (hat you are ac- * ·* * ually helping the National Lib- ralion Front in the South by lending troops and war mate- ials? Why do you deny it?" He said that Pham replied, vith "a puzzled expression," 'We do not deny that. We are ndesd helping the NLF in every ,vay we can--including the sending of our own troops. "Since the U.S. invades our fatherland in the South and attacks-the North, why should we renounce our right to defend our entire fatherland from every corner of our sacred territory?" Araneta said in Manila today that he was surprised Dong made the statement and later confirmed it with North Vietnamese press officials. "I asked why they had denied this previously and their answer was that they had never denied sending troops South, only that they denied committing aggression on the South, 1 ' Araneta said.

South Africans Fight Disease CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) -- Tuberculosis remains a "dreadful problem" in South Africa, mainly because of the difficulties encountered in making 12 million Africans conscious of the need to ccnibat it, Health Minister Albert Hertzog told parliament. Superstition plaj-s a part in neglect of the disease, he said. In the current financial year, Rands 28 million--S39.2 million --out of a total hcnllh budget of Rands 49 million--$68.B million --has been devoted to fighting TB.

August 7-PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Bethlehem Steel Corp. cut its recent price hikes almost in half tcday to remain competitive with U.S. Steel, which had announced new but more modest price increases earlier in the day. Less than two hours after U.S. Steel, the nation's No. 1 producer, announced price raises on steels used in huge quantities by the auto and appliance industries, No. 2-ranked Bethlehem said he was chopping its prices. Bethlehem said its general price increase of 5 per cent was being cut to 2.4 per cent on al its products. A spokesman saic the cut \vas marie "to be com petitive with those of U.S Steel."

Opposed by LB.T Today's announcement came in the face of opposition by President Johnson, who had asked the steel industry to hold the line on price increases. While House aides had said during the weekend that a stand- pat position by U.S. Steel was the President's big hope of averting industrywide hikes or even forcing a rollback of new prices.

By LARRY HALL Associated Press Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Lt. Gov. Thomas F. Eagleton, 39, of St. Louis, a brilliant speaker who conducted a hard hitting campaign, defeated U. S. San. Edward V. Long in Missouri's hot contest for ths Democratic senatorial nomination Tuesday. A poor third was True Davis, wealthy St. Joseph businessman who is a former ambassador to Switzerland and former assistant secretary of the treasury. Long said today "the citizens of Missouri have spok-sn and the campaign is over." The sem- ator wired his congratulations to Eagleton. "My defeat is a great victory for the wiretappers, snooper; and federal bureaucrats who violate the constitutional rights of our citizens," Long said. Long has maintained thai articles in a national magazine which suggested he misused his office to help a convicted union official and to aid a St. Louis union local were designed to af feet the election in Missouri.
