Doctor Explains Basic Baby Delivery ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP A University of Michigan obstetrician says traffic and sub' urban living means ambulance drivers and other emergency workers can expect to deliver more babies. So George W. Morley, an associate professor of obstetrics, told emergency workers at a conference Friday to take these steps: — "Apply local anesthetic — face the inevitable and talk to the mother-to-be in a reassuring maner." — Do not use force in trying to keep the baby back. "Let's be professional; if you see she is going to deliver, do your job." — Guide the baby Out, tip It down to drain mucous, flip the bottom of its feet to start breathing, use mouth-to-mouth respiration If needed, and tie the cord with a shoe lace, string or anything. Rememoei 1 Pay Your ftfft Bflf There was speculation that survivors had pulled back into Communist-controlled eastern Laos through an elaborate, log- covered system of bunkers. Gen. William C. Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, visited the scene and said: "I don't think the battle is necessarily over." "But the enemy has been set back and has suffered tremendous casualties," lie said. "The ilarines hit them before they lad a chance to prepare the area." A company of U.S. Marines also fought south of Da Nang Friday, losing (even dead and 14 wounded to Comunists entrenched in fortified positions. The Marines reported killing one enemy soldier. Near the Cambodian border, about 15 Communist troops wounded 25 Vietnamese civilians in a mortar attack and ground assault on the village of Trang Sue. Viet Cong casualties were not known.

South Vietnamese Premier Nguyen Cao Ky was in Da Nang for a two-day visit to areas of recent fighting. He told newsmen he expects the Communists to try to open a new front in the central highlands when the weather shifts soon to a rainy season over the South and drier weather in the North. SECRET (Continued from Page One) He died in Juen 1963. When Pope Paul addresses pilgrims—more than a million are expected—*n his 13-hour trip to Fatima next week, it is thought he may mention the Fatima secret in passing without disclosing what it is. Cardinal Ottaviani, however, told a gathering in Rome last February that "morbid and alarmist" speculation about the Fatima message was "entirely false." The cautious, conservative Italian cardinal who directs the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith also spoke of "the confidence the message of Fatima inspires." The Fatima site has become one of the largest Roman Catholic shrines in the world. It is built up with hotels, convents and other religious houses, including the basilica where Pope Paul will say Mass and pray for peace. New McCulloch n & 9 H.P.
