At least 119 North Vietnamese regulars were re ported killed in scattered fights involving U. S. Marines, Korean marines and U.S. Army para troops and infantrymen. U.S j losses were three dead and 651 wounded The Communists today showered some 400 mortar and artillery shells and rockets on Marine and Army artillery oosi-1 lions just below the demilitar-' ized zone. The Marines .reported 47 wounded in the attacks. Part of the fire came from 140mm rockets and 12mm artillery pieces which the Communists have been using in increasing numbers. B5 bombers resumed raids ^ over South Vietnam's northern- j most Quang Tri Province after a month's pause. North Vietnamese surface-to-air missiles poised near the demilitarized zone, a threat to the high-flyins Stratoforts, were reportedly the reason for the one-month bombing halt. In two years of B52 raids, not one bomber has been shot down. R«Y.

(Continued from Page One) into the darkened buildings. The slum area was lighted only by the flames after the power company turned off electricity to prevent spread of fire. For several hours, the rioting was held to a 10-by-6 block area in a slum section called Central Village. After midnight the battle spread to the west Negro district. | "They're shooting here," ra- i dioed an officer who was sent to I investigate a jangling burglar alarm. Three cars were sent to aid the lone policeman. The owner of the store reportedly dclined to come into the neighborhood to shut off the alarm. Patrolman J. R. Clark said eight looters were arrested. He said there were reports of isolated lootings tiiroughout the city. Police said looters raided a large gun store, grocery stores, a liquor store, laundries, a pharmacy and two wig shops. Many of the stores burned to the ground along Central Avenue. There were reports that fused to enter the riot area fusd to enter the riot ara without police escorts. The shooting incident which apparently sparked the riot on a j muggy summery night occurred at Nebraska Ave. and Twiggs St. when Martin Chambers, 19, was shot as he ran from a policeman. Patrolman J. P. Calvert said (he boy and two others had broken into Tampa Photo Supply Co. and stolen cameras. The officer said he shot Chambers as a "last resort" when the youth ignored the officer's orders to halt. 'Why did it take a policeman to shoot a teen-ager? -one Negro asked after the shooting. There was some grumbling but no immediate trouble. A drenching two-hour rain followed and about 10 p.m. reports of looting were received by police. Groups of looters smashed windows and stole from the stores, police said. A riot squad that began with 100 helmeted officers, some witn leashed dogs, swelled through the night and was bolstered by an armored riot mobile unit from the highway patrol equipped with tear gas guns and a water cannon. The bottom edges of the truck are razor sharp so it cannot be tipped. The entire area was a nightmarish battle scene with electric power off. Flames from burning stores reflected from the smoky white pall over the city. James Hammon, a Negro, administrator of the Tampa Commission on Community Relations, said the trouble apparently was triggered when the Negro burglary suspect "was shot in the back." He said most of the rioters were under 20. He said many of the original rioters knew the youth personally. Hammond said that in an area on Central Avenue, between Cass and Scott streets, where the looting and torching occurred, every store burned was owned or operated by whites. (Continued from Page One) and that persons should be immunized from the diseases. A 1913 law requiring immunization from smallpox before gaining admittance to a school was not affected by the Oglesby measure. The 1913 law is still on the books and has been challenged numerous times in the courts by persons objecting to the immunization because of religious beliefs. Mrs. Oglesby said Sunday that she had not received much criticism over the measure but that many persons seemed to be confused about it. "When school starts there may be some more confusion," she said. Mrs. Oglesby said she conferred with Herron and other state Health Department officials in drawing the bill. "I see no reason why we can't go ahead and take advantage of these (medical) advances and maybe be among the first states to see that our children have a better health program," she said. "I hope this will be fte beginning of a complete eradication of communicable diseases in Arkansas," she said. Herron pointed out that whooping cough is an especially dangerous disease to infant's and young children and that it could develop into several lung diseases. The health officer said that a normally healthy child of age four or five has usually gained natural immunization to the disese, and that the American Academy of Pediatrics, in the concensus of its members, believes that a whooping cough shot for persons age six or over could be more harmful than good. The Board of Health has circulated literature in the state advocating an immunization progrm against numerous diseases of the young, including pertusis. Mrs. Oglesby said she had a copy of some of the literature Which says the "importance of immunization cannot be stressed too strongly." Herron says children should be immunized from whooping cough before they reach the age of six. He also said they should be immunized from the other diseases listed in Mrs. Oglesby's measure. The exemption under doctor's certificates is an escape for all students who have not undergone immunization against whooping cough. To supply these certificates may give school officials throughout the state some additional paper work, but it also might prompt the parents of pre-school age children to take the precaution now. "I feel like the program is needed and it needs to be publicized so the people can gt rady for it before school starts," Mrs. Oglesby said.
