The storage area that came under attack had been on the . Pentagon's out-of-bounds list. The downing of the two Korean War-vintage MIG17s by the fastest plane the Air Force has, brought to 98 the number of MIG kills for American airmen in battles over North Vietnam. The United States has lost 26 planes to MIGs. The announcement came after the command reported that U.S. Air Force jets had raided the Gia Thuong storage area less than a mile north of the Gia Lam air base, which is across the Red River from the heart of Hanoi and is North Vietnam's main civilian air field. Credited with bringing down the two MIGs were Capt. Darrell D. Simmonds, 33, of Vernon, Tex., the aircraft commander, and 1st Lt. George H. McKinney Jr., 24, of Bessemer, Ala., the pilot. Both are assigned to the tactical fighter wing at Ubon, Thailand. Gia Lam is also the only MIG airfield U.S. warplanes have not yet attacked and one of about five major targets still on the Pentagon's restricted list. Among the others are the Haiphong docks and railroad terminal and the power plant in Lao Cai, on the border of Communist China. The Gia Thuong storage area is on the main northeast rail- Drake's Director Lauds Musicians The Carroll High School auditorium was filled Saturday night with spectators and band members on the floor and a stage band on the stage.

He also lauded the band directors as being "a fine credit to our profession." The "Brighton Beach March" by Latham opened the concert with its rousing rhythm and tuneful nuances. This was followed by "Contempra Overture" (Cofield), selections from "West Side Story" (Bernstein) and "Titoro" (Taylor). After an interlude by the stage band, the concert band tackled some more difficult numbers, including an Isaac arrangement of Jacques Offenbach's "Parisian". The ballet music was divided into five sections — the overture valse, gal- op, valse and the finale, with the highlight being the lively dance music of the galop.

(AP) — A multipurpose "pinball" satellite parked itself in a stationary orbit high above Brazil today, a successful herald to one of America's busiest space weeks. The new ATS 3, for applications technology satellite, rocketed into orbit from Cape Kennedy Sunday night to test systems that might eventually provide man with greater benefits from space. Included are new experiments in communications, navigation and weather prediction. The payload initially achieved a wide-looping orbit ranging from 110 to 22,147 miles high. After a few days of precise maneuvering, the satellite is to take up permanent station above the mouth of the Amazon River. ATS 3 is one of four U.S. space shots scheduled this week. Also on tap are: — Surveyor 6, set to blast off from the Cape at 2:22 a.m. (EST) Tuesday on a planned fi5-hour flight to the moon. The spacecraft is intended to land in a potential astronaut landing site near the center of the moon's surface to snap photographs and analyze the lunar soil. — ESSA 6, another in a series of operational weather-study sa- tallites, to be launched Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif.

A U.S. spokesman said Gia Thuong is considered one of the largest military storage areas in North Vietnam, with 72 storage buildings, 11 support buildings and eight administration buildings in the compound. He said the American bombs impacted on the buildings and on antiaircraft sites protecting the area. The spokesman said both the Canal des Rapides and Doumer bridges had been knocked out in previous raids and there apparently was a backlog of military supplies in Gia Thuong, making it "a lucrative target." In another major strike Sunday, Air Force Thunderchiefs again raided the Phuc Yen MIG base northwest of Hanoi and reported damaging at least two MIG 17 interception on the ground. In South Vietnam, meanwhile, South Vietnamese infantrymen battled Viet Cong troops near Loc Ninh. One American F105 was shot down during the Phuc Yen raid, but two propeller-driven Al Skyraiders drove off two MIG17s while a "jolly green giant" helicopter rescued the pilot.

Kosygin said Soviet armed forces "are always ready to give a decisive rebuff to any aggressor who dares raise a sword against our motherland or the Socialist camp." The new missile, dragged under canvas through Moscow late one night last week in a parade rehearsal, is about the size of a missile shown here for the last two years.

Ford assembly lines were closed for 60 days, 46 of them during a national strike by the union and the last two weeks over local disputes. Ford workers won roughly a dollar an hour more in wages and fringe benefits above the previous big-three rate of $4.70 an hour. All the company's key parts plants have settled local contracts. Four out of 16 assembly plants are still without new pacts. Workers at some Ford plants had been called back earlier although anything close to a full resumption of production awaited settlements at three key parts plants in Ohio.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court today declared Maryland's ' loyalty oath for public employes unconstitutional because it is vague. The 6-3 decision was given by Justice William 0. Douglas. It stressed a provision in the oath requiring state employes to swear that they are not engaged "in one way or another" in an attempt to forcibly overthrow the Maryland or federal governments. Douglas questioned if someone could be considered involved in an attempt to overthrow the government if he belonged to a subversive organization but was unaware of its objectives. "We do not know," Douglas said, "nor could a prospective employe know save as he risked a prosecution for perjury." The three dissenters, speaking through Justice John M. Harlan, said: "The only thing that does shine through the opinion of the majority is that its members do not like loyalty oaths." Harlan and Justices Potter Stewart and Byron R. White added that they found nothing unconstitutional about the Maryland loyalty oath. The challenge to the loyalty certificate was brought to the court by attorneys for Howard J. Whitehill, a Johns Hopkins University professor who was denied a visiting teacher's post at the University of Maryland last year when he refused to sign the certificate. It called on him to swear that he was not "engaged in one way or another in any plan to overthrow the government." The oath stems from Maryland's 1949 Ober Law. Since 1964 the Supreme Court has also struck down loyalty oath requirements in the states of Washington, Arizona and New York. In the light of these actions Maryland had revised its oath to eliminate a requirement that the job applicant Court . . . See Page 9 Suggestions to Builders on Tax Situation DES MOINES (AP) -A spokesman for Iowa contractors Monday labeled a decision to collect the state service tax on new construction "vindictive," and suggested ways .for builders to cope with the situation until it is clarified. The State Tax Commission reversed an earlier ruling Friday and decided the tax should apply to new construction 'as well as repairs. A variety of factors make it unlikely, however, that the decision will ever take effect. Ken Lewis, manager of Master Builders of Iowa, Inc., suggested in a statement that builders could refuse to enter into new contracts until the problem is resolved. They could also include the tax in bids, he said, or omit it, but with the provision that they will be reimbursed for any service tax due on the contract if the tax becomes effective. The commission's ruling must be approved by the Legislative Rules Review Committee, which could delay the effective date of the tax until after Jan. 1. By that time, Commissioners Builders . . .
