(Courier News Photo) VIET NAM (Continued trom Page One) many American Jives and aircraft losses extending into billions of dollars." A day earlier, Sens. Edward M Kennedy, D-Mass., and Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa., called for a trial halt in the bombings. Other senators have urged a permanent halt in the air raids. As set forth by President Johnson, the objectives of the bombings are to cut the flow of men and supplies from North Vietnam to Communist forces in South Vietnam and to pressure Hanoi into taking the war !o !he conference (able. The bombings have undoubtedly made infiltration from North Vietnam more costly. But McNamara told ,a Senate hearing last January the bombing had not "significantly reduced" the flow of Communist troops and supplies into South Vietnam. In fact, the number of Communist troops has slowly and steadily increased, according to the weekly estimate of enemy strength from the U.S. command in Saigon. Rather than forcing Hanoi to negotiate, says the antibombing camp, the raids have strengthened the resolution of the North Vietnamese to continue the war. Unlil the recent attacks on power and sleel plants, the targets for U.S. bombers largely consisted of highways, bridges, railroads, trucks, boats, barges and fuel depots. Critics of the raid contend these are unworthy targets for the most part, considering the expenditure of men, planes and munitions. These critics argue lhat it is not worth risking a $2-million plane and a valuable pilot to attack a truck or stage a raid against what one frustrated pilot called "suspected stream bed." Nevertheless, official figures credit U.S. planes with destroying or damaging 5,000 bridges, 3,000 railroad cars, 7,« 000 trucks and 5,000 cargo boats and barges up to the start of this year. Of the 500 planes downed in combat in North Vietnam, 19 were shot down by Communist MIG interceptors and between 30 and 40 were knocked down by Soviet-supplied missiles. The remaining 450 were brought down by conventional antiaircraft artillery. More than 500 American pilots have been rescued. Half of them were picked up uninjured and went back to combat flying 1m- ] mediately.

Parts 2 of 3. Weather U. S. Weather Bureau Agricultural Service Reiser, Ark. The frontal system which moved across the state yesterday touched off some widely scattered or light showers in north Arkansas, but amounts were disappointingly small. A somewhat cooler air mass covers the state and temperatures will generally climb only to the upper 60s and 70s today. The front has become very weak and promises nothing in the way of rain. A warming trend will return Wednesday with temperatures heading for the 80s again tomorrow. Yesterday's highs were in the upper 60s to mid 70s in the north and the 80s in the central and south. Overnight lows ranged from the upper 40s to the mid 50s. Land preparation will continue in the delta. This spell of dry weather should have farmers well ahead of the normal schedule and ready to plant when soil temperatures and moisture conditions are right. The normal date of last 32-degree temperature is still a week off for the Fayetteville area. However in only about three years out of 10 will a 30-degree temperature be reached at Blytheville after April 6th. The same probability finds a date of April 3rd at Marianna and in only about two years in 10 will the Stuttgart area have a freeze after April 4th. The five-day outlook of above normal temperatures will result in an even lower probability of a freeze as the days pass by. Substantial soil moisture shortages are still building up as evidenced by the 7 and one quarter inch deficit so far this year at both Little Rock and Fort Smith. There is little likelihood that the deficits will be reduced appreciably this week. Yesterday's hlgn—79 Overnight low—47 Precipitation previous 24 hours 'to 7 a.m. today)—none Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—7.34 Sunset today—6:24 Sunrise tomorrow—5:42 This Date A Year Ago •yesterday's iilgh—72 Overnight low—38 Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—11.73 Traffic Accidents Vehicles operated by Patty June Davis, 48, Box 745 and Dave H. Glower, 19, Manila, collided on Main and Fifth Streets at 2:45 p.m. yesterday. There were no injuries and Clower was ticketed for failure to yield right-of-way. Where's the Fire? A stove fire at 1016 Clark at 8:50 a.m. yesterday. A stove fire at 414 North First at 11:56 a.m. yesterday.

(AP) - A St. Louis group has launched its semiannual, 10-week drive for contributions, and hopes to collect 10,000 baby teeth. The drives, conducted since 1958 by the St. Louis Committee for Nuclear Information, will benefit "the baby tooth survey." It is described by officials as the only record anywhere of strontium 90 deposition in teeth which has continued without interruption in a scientific manner. Since 1958 the drive has produced 250,000 baby teeth for research, an official said. Hippies to Flood Little N.M. Town SHERMAN OAKS, Calif.

Suppose the legislature takes away the superintendent's supervisory power over the schools and gives it to the governor? Stone may find himself caught between a state government telling him to do one thing and a federal :ourt refusing to recognize the state's intervention and ordering him to do another. Before it is over, federal authorities may have to decide whether to send in troops or U.S. marshals to see that the court order is carried out and to ^reserve peace. Then the governor's husband, former Gov. Ge»rge C. Wallace, could campaign for president :elling the voters how his state lad been "occupied" by federal forces.
