(Photo by Taylor) Explosions, Fire Rake U.S. Ammunition Dump By ROBERT TUtXMAN SAIGON, South Vietnam (AP) Expiosions and fire, believed touched off by Viet Cong saboteurs did heavy damage today t9 large sections of a huge U.S. Army ammunition dump near Saigon. It was the fourth time in a little more than three months that the munitions depot a Long Binh 14 miles north of Saigon has been hit. Fourteen hours after the first explosion at : 3:25 a.m., smoke still poured from many parts of the 'dump. It was still too hot and dangerous for U.S. Army AGENT (Continued from Page One) and by his congresswoman, Margaret Heckler." It was understood Kennedy had, with State Department approval, written a personal letter to Czech President Antonin Novotny urging the travel agent's release. Brooke had wired the Czech ambassador this week, also urging suspension of the sentence and expulsion of Kazan-Kornarek from the country. Then three- judge court 1 Prague convicted Kazan-Ko marek of organizing and di reeling an antistate group as a paid agent of a foreign intelligence service from late 1948, after the Communists took over Czechoslovakia, until December 1950. The court said Kazan-Komarek operated in West Germany and France as well as Czechoslovakia. He was charged with smuggling out people "In whom the foreign intelligence service was interested" and in bringing radio transmitters and arms into the country. A n t i state activities in Czechoslovakia theoretically are punishable by deatti, but this penalty has not been invoked since Stalin's time. In pronouncing sentence, the court said it took into account the fact that more than 16 years had elapsed since Kazan-Komarek engaged in espionage. Kazan-Komarek was taken prisoner by the Germans' in World War II, escaped and was employed by the U.S. Army in Nuernberg from May 1945, to May 1946. He lived in France for a while, emigrated to the United States in 1953 and be- cam a U.S. citizen in 1960. He and his wife have five children. His arrest came as he was returning from a conference of travel agents in the Soviet capital. The Soviet travel service had invited him to attend the conference, which dealt with preparation for the 1967 international tourist year.

Spokesmen said 22 military policemen were in the barracks Friday night when the explosion and fire occurred, nine were wounded. Of the four B52 raids today, two were staged before dawn. The first hit a Communist base camp and underground storage area 27 miles north-northeast of Saigon.
