Viet Action After Vote? WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., voiced his confident assumption Saturday that President Johnson will push for U.N. action on Vietnam after the Sept. 3 elections in the South.

Windless, relatively cool summer weather aided firefighters Friday, but a new front was expected to move in today. Forest officials feared the front could bring winds and send the fire across the 300-foot backburn lines. ' Eight aerial tankers, 150 men, four bulldozers and six water trucks are fighting the Plans for Hospital SAN'A, Yemen (AP) - The Yemeni Cabinet is thinking of making a hospital out of the 30 four-room villas used as a camp at Tais by personnel of the U.S. Agency for Interna-t i o n a 1 Development before AID was thrown out of this Red Sea country last April. 11"' A M A s o 'tI fife: P4M HIGH STEPPING 'The.Greatest Show ...;4he - Ringling; Bros, and Barnum & on Earth' continues its spectacular, ex- -Ba.Hey bandsmen.

As the Senate Democratic leader, Mansfield participated in a White House conference earlier in the week at which Johnson was reported to have indicated his desire to bring the matter before the United Nations after South Vietnam Sequoia National Forest blaze which had consumed more than 200 acres by dusk Saturday. That fire broke out about 3:30 p.m. Saturday from an unknown cause. There have been no reported injuries or structures burned in the largely unpopulated area. Another 1900-p 1 u s -a c r e Three Rivers brush and timber fire 23 miles east of Visa-lia is reported 95-per cent contained with control expected sometime today. Some 275 inmate firefighters are still battling hot spots on the burn's west side, but most heavy equipment and aircraft have been released from service. None of Sequoia National Forest's 2,000 year old Redwoods were destroyed although the fire consumed 177 acres of Forest land. votes on a civilian government. While he would not comment other than to say the President had discussed the Vietnam situation, Mansfield , said : "As soon as possible after the election, I would hope that the issue will be put before the Security Council." He said he thinks the elections will become a landmark for the timing of such a move no matter how they turn out. Mansfield, who has long been critical of the U.N.'s failure to discuss and act upon Vietnam, is expected to lead off a demonstration of vocal encouragement in the Senate Monday for a presidential push for U.N. action. Hawks, as well as doves, may join in this. The U.S. resolution, which has lain dormant since the Council voted 9-2 to take it up early in 1966, calls for a conference to apply the Geneva accords of 1954 and 1962 for "the establishment of a durable peace in SoutheastAsia." The resolution was quietly shelved after it became apparent to Americans tha the Soviets and France were taking the position that the Geneva convention apparatus, rather than the United Nations, should deal with Vietnam. The United States became convinced it either would be outvoted or the resolution vetoed in the Council. Subsequently Ambassador Arthur Goldberg, in letters to Secretary General U Thant, has urged the exercise of U.N. good offices to end the war. ATHENS, Greece (AP) -An Athens public prosecutor, Saturday night filed an indictment against Andreas Papan-dreou, former government minister, and 11 others on charge of conspiring to. com- mit high treason. andreou, 48, a onetime mencaiL enhjUaught,, at several American universities, is the son of former Premier George Papandreou. The younger Papandreou was arrested after the April 21 military coup in Greece. Papandreou and the others were charged with conspiracy to commit treason and linked by the charges with the leftist army officers group called As-pida. It is alleged that Aspida sought to overthrow the government and withdraw Greece from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The public prosecutor's action followed a recommendation by a council of magistrates. The indicted can appeal and it might take weeks or even months to bring the case to trial in a civil court. School Means End To Youths7 Jobs Continued from Page 1 I'm not going to clean someone else's toilet To do that I don't need to go to school." Carletta and her friends need money to return to school this fall. They don't want a lot "just enough to not have to wash the same dress evey night until it wears out and enough to buy a hot meal so we can keep going in class." And they believe that this summer they've earned the chance to continue work after school and on Saturdays. The summer recreation program consisted of reading, arts and crafts and games for children from low-income families. Their work supplemented that of regular recreation department workers and was paid for by the Neighborhood Youft Corps, a federal agency. "This was pacifying us during the summertime. But if I'm goin; to be able to put myself through school, I'm going to have to have a job. I'm tired of people telling us to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps when we don't have any boots," Carletta said. She, six friends and her supervisors from the Recreation Department took their case Friday to George Johnson, director of manpower for the Department of Human Resources, which administers the Neighborhood Youth Corps. Monday they are scheduled to meet with the city manager to make their pitch for a year-round program not limited to dropouts. Their mission could have a happy ending. The Neighborhood Youth Corps program started late in Oakland and as a result will end the summmer with several weeks extra funds. Under the guidelines, the funds probably can't be used after school resumes, according to Hap Smith, acting director of the Department of Human Resources. But Hugh Taylor, director of the Mayor's M a n po w e r Commission, was conferring this weekend with -a repre-. sentative 'of Vice President Hubert Humphrey, who heads the nation's youth programs. Mud Torrent Nearly Cleaned From Lake Tahoe Shore Area CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. -Cleanup of Tahoe's mud torrent was almost complete here today. The cascade of mud poured from the hillsides along the shore of northeast Lake Tahoe late Friday, following a brief cloudburst C "P x c e p t for one vacant . home destroyed! oh Second! Creek, actual damage was "Tightr- said Mrs." Velda"Far- ris, a resident of the Crystal Shores Apartments and r spokesman for the Crystal Bay Development Co. The complex of apartments on the shore side of Highway 28 bore the brunt of mud flow-ing toward the lake, mostly in ditches and overflowing into the road bed of the highway and Mt. Rose Highway, which intersects it about a mile far-' , ther up the shoreline. "It looked pretty 'frightening at the time, with this river of it r ? 2 Steel and concrete Taylor said that a way is being sought to take advantage of the unused funds. This would continue the program a few weeks while an alternate source of money is hunted. And so there is a possibility and at this point it is only that that the recreation program may continue. Summer Fun Task Force Succeeded Oakland's Recreation Department worked hard this summer to make the school vacation a fun time. From the smiles of youngsters who participated the department succeeded, partly because it had plenty of help. The programs were extensive and varied: tours, playgrounds, swimming, camping, track, music and dance, sports clinics and 1 i f e t i m e sports. And then there were stories and games for the younger vacationers, and arts and crafts and drama, too. r It was all made possible through the Recreation Task Force, which was part of the Youth Opportunity Campaign. The program gave Oakland youngsters one of the nation's outstanding recreation programs while at the same time providing jobs for teenagers who otherwise might have been unemployed. The tour program is a good example of the detailed planning and scope of the campaign. One - hundred - ninety-seven busloads of youngsters-some 10,000 youths by the end of the summer are taking part. Airplane rides, soccer games (3,500 free tickets) and a chance to see big league baseball lirst. hand (again free) at Candlestick Park all were Included in the tours program. In addition, the youngsters visited industrial plants, military installations, airports in Oakland and San Francisco, the Knowland State Park Zoo, a half dozen beaches, Fairyland and the Alameda County Fair. Much of the tour program was financed by private donations. mud coming across the highway," said Mrs. Farris. "But the total damage seems to have been one house washed away and some mud in just four apartments, garages and hallways." "It appears culverts carrying Second Creek (under the highways) got clogged with logs or other debris and this sent mud flowing out Into the roadways," she said." "It was thre8 feet deep across the highway at one point." The heavy snow pack of last winter may have saturated the hillside causing Friday night's brief rain to run off instead of soak into the ground; local authorities believe. The runoff picked up large quantities of sun-dried surface dirt and turned the whole thing into mud. r "It will all be cleaned up in a couple of days," said Mrs. Farris. T- in ri - ' . "" m go into place at the new Nursery Burns . In San Leandro SAN LEANDRO - A three-alarm fire broke out in downtown San Leandro late Saturday, sending smoke billowing into the sky and attracting hundreds of spectators. The blaze was in the building occupied by Don Lucas and Sons Nursery and florist shop at 1585 E. 14th St. Eight pieces of equipment and 35 men were engaged in the battle against the flames shortly before midnight. Neighborhood Youth Corps workers made it possible for the department to extend operation of 25 elementary school playgrounds and six recreation centers on weekends. The hours of public swimming pools were extended and special group rates of 10 cents per child vere established at the target area schools. The Recreation Department has established a special week of camping at Kamp Kidd and Camp Eierra, and camper-ships are being set up for youngsters in low income neighborhoods. Track programs were established at McClymonds and Castlemont High Schools, and jazz groups and guitar lessons also are underway in some target areas. Teen Talent shows have been organized and special instruction is available in such lifetime sports as bowling, badminton, tennis and golf. ' . , ., -Si ail J !J; ' " i -v lift.
