He said 206 helicopters also have been downed in the south and three in the north. On the ground, a Communist force of more than battalion strength opposed two companies of U.S. Marines today just three miles south of the demilitarized zone. The Marines were believed to be fighting a reinforced North Vietnamese army battalion, or possibly two battalions. A Marine spokesman said the two companies "don't seem to be in any particular danger." The fighting began about noon Friday. Since then the Marines had killed 50 Communists, according to body count. They es-' timated 110 more of the enemy have been killed, but this figure was not confirmed.

The MIGs fled after a brief encounter, apparently with no damage to either side.. On the ground, units of the.U. S. Marine battalion which landed Thursday just south of the demilitarized zone came under North Vietnamese mortar and automatic weapons fire in a predawn attack today. Associated press photographer Horst Faas reported from the battle area that two Marine companies operating about 1,500 yards south of the buffer zone suffered light to moderate casualties in separate attacks. The Marines' took one wounded North Vietnamese soldier as prisoner. The units were part of a reinforced battalion of more than 1,200 troops which landed by ships and helicopters in Operation Deckhouse 4 to seek infiltrated units of North Viet Nam's refurbished 324B Division. On the'political front, Premier Nguyen Cao Ky today pledged to speed up transition of his military government into a civilian democracy as a result of last Sunday's successful elections. Speaking to the foreign press corps at a luncheon, Ky said the elections were a severe blow to the Communists and their claims of influence and control over large sections of the people. "Now that we have set out on the road to democratic government, we cannot slow down," he said. "We cannot detour or rest on the excuse that we are only a caretaker government." In ground action Friday, U. S. troops reported killing 26 enemy soldiers in two battles in South Viet Nam and a South Vietnamese spokesman said Vietnamese infantrymen killed another 11 Viet Cong in an engagement in the Mekong Delta 75 miles south of Saigon. In air activity, Guam-based U S. B52 bombers hammered the demilitarized zone in a pre- miles north of the Marine operation. The intensification of both air and ground activites in the buffer area has brought the demilitarized zone nearer to complete involvement in the war. .Over North Viet Nam Friday, Navy A6 Intruders from the aircraft Carrier Constellation destroyed or heavily damaged 20 to 30 trucks in a 60-truck convoy 25 miles north of Thanh Hoa. They also silenced three antiaircraft gun positions in the area, a spokesman said. . U. S. Air Force jet pilots also reported attacking 50 large flat- bottomed cargo boats, destroying five and damaging 10. Communist North Viet Nam's news agency, in a broadcast monitored in Tokyo, today identified another captured American pilot. The agency said he was Lt. Burton Wayne Campbell, 27, of the U. S. Air Force and that .he was captured July 1. His hometown was not disclosed. The agency also' said that American flying ace ' Maj. James H. Kasler of Indinpol- is, Ind., suffered a badly broken leg when he was shot down last month. His capture had been reported previously by the ortJi Vietnamese. The agency quoted Kasler, an Air Force ace of the Korean War and top pilot in Viet Nam, as saying he had been "treated well' since his capture Aug. 8. CITY calling for "grass roots" support from the great masses of the state, emphasizing the facts of his birth into a poor family. "You know I love yuh," he said. "You know I need yuh by my side, standing up for Arkansas, standing up for freedom, standing up for America."

"The man from New York," is Johnson referred to his Republican opponent, Winthrop Rockefeller, came in for much slanging, which the crowd seeh- ed to enjoy. "Jim Johnson will stand or fall on these pledges in November!" Johnson also attacked a federal government that, he said, was "alien to the concept handed down to us by our forefath- to be stuck with a prissy sissy whose only claim to public service is that his millions attracted for him an honorary appointment rom a Denwatic governor." Johnson accused Rockefeller of using his position as head Of the state's Industrial Development Commission to take "the confidential informaiton available to Hm and (buy) property for housing developments in areas where new industries were to be located." (Rockefeller was later to brand this allegation a >ibel.) "(H)e wants to become King Winthrop the First," Johnson shouted.

Other names Johnson called Rockefeller included "the Santa Gertrudis steer," "the anointed one," and the "clever manipulator." Johnson renewed his vendetta against the Arkansas Gazette. "They will stop at noth. mention of action he might take | — nd p «o' th7depths «o to forestall the government's * „ ,:„, TM™.,,., -rL r.=. government's desegregation guidelines. He avoided also specific declarations of policy of all kinds. Earlier the convention had adopted a long platform which most observers considered reformist and even progressive in tone. It called for constitutional reform, an audit of the highway department, and studies of state agencies, tax structure, the .Arkansas election system, governmental re-organization, and asked for a minimum wa<;e. That platform had allegedly been drawn up by Jim Brandon, Sam Boyce, Dr. A. B. Luck, Sam Boyce, Tom Tompson, and Max Allison, ~the first four members of relatively liberal factions of the party, the last reputed to have been a behind-the- scenes liason man with Johnson and the rest of the party.

Why should our son manage a newspaper route? Most any educator or businessman will tell you why in three simple words: it builds character. Oftentimes the youngster who grows up in comfortable circumstances and who gets his weekly "handout" from dad never realizes the value of money or the efforts required to make it and manage it, until he's on his own. By then attitudes and habits are difficult to reverse. But the newspaperboy quickly learns valuable lessons that stick While making money on a newspaper route is important, the experience of gettmg- the-job-done-no-matter-whaf is more important. When through route management, responsibility and self-confidence are acquired at this early age, a newspaperboy has an advantage over other youngsters that no amount of money can buy. If you're still wondering whether your son would benefit from newspaper route management, ask a community businessman or civic leader, or bettor stall, phone our Circulation Department.
