A dispatch from Massada in (Israeli territory about 50 miles I from Tel Aviv, said the Jordanians had hit a farm there with about 50 artillery rounds and fire from 120mm and 81mm mortars. Newspapers throughout the Arab world had claimed for two days that another Israeli attack was in preparation. Amman reported heavy troop movements on Israel's side of the Jordan River truce line Thursday. Newsmen In the tense Beisan Valley said the French-made Israeli jets penetrated several miles into Jordan to strike at gun emplacements dug into the slopes of the Gilad Mountains, and raked riverfront machine- gun nosts in a four-mile sweep. Reporting on the attacks, the Jordanian army said: "The enemy is keeping up continuous air activity over the northern area of the Nurdan Valley and is shelling our frontier positions. Our troops are fighting back." The Israelis, sensitive about the vulnerability of their low- lying farm communities in the fertile valley, said they went to their air power after Jordanian big guns hit settlements at Gesher, Beit Yosef and Yardena.

(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) aganda and fifth column action. Trager Talk Dr. Trager, well known in military, governmental and educational circles, declared, "no kind of solution is now feasible because of nuclear weapons." An authority on the Far East Dr. Trager opined, "although we have two options in regards to Vietnam . . . thai of withdrawing or speeding up our ef-j forts to cause a cease and desist situation, we should and must take the latter way due! to our commitments made i through instruments of treaties. I He said he believes we could bring about a cease and desist I situation in Vietnam and force the North Vietnamese back to where they belong by using our conventional weapons more effectively. Fast Conclusion. Speaking prior to a Brownwood High School a cappella choir performance, Trager said, "We need to bring the war in Vietnam to a fast condition not only because of economic reasons which are causing us to spend billions of more dollars than the communist bloc and which could bleed us to death financially, but also because of the threat of nuclear war. "Even though," he said, "you don't read much about it in our metropolitan papers, we do have quite a lot of help from our allies as exemplified by South Koreas' 50,000 troops and the help we are getting from Australia, the Philippines and other nations." His statement that we should take back the Pueblo immedi' ately, was echoed by applause from the near capacity crowd.
