(News-Herald Photo) U.S. Aircraft Bombs Batteries South of Hanoi SAIGON (AP) - A -flight of American fighter-bombers attacked North Vietnamese antiaircraft batteries 125 miles south of Hanoi Thursday after the Communists fired on a reconnaissance plane apparently attempting to photograph a MIG air base, U.S. military spokesmen said. It was the fifth so-called protective reaction strike Inside North Vietnam this week, the most in a five-day period since the American halt in the bomb- Ing of the North on Nov. 1, 1968. The command earlier this week had announced four protective reaction strikes over North Vietnam, and two raids against antiaircraft defenses in Laos, just across the North Vietnamese border. The strike Thursday was 185 miles north of the demilitarized zone, the deepest in North Vietnam since last November, a spokesman for the U.S. Command said. Several carrier-based Navy fighter-bombers. escorting the unarmed RA5 reconnaissance plane fired five radar-homing air-to-ground missiles at a cluster of North Vietnamese surface-to-air missile-SAM-sites and antiaircraft guns which fired at the reconnaissance plane and the escorts. A spokesman for the command said two antiaircraft po- sitionswere knocked out and ail of the Navy planes returned safely after evading SAMs and other antiaircraft fire. The Navy escorts—F4 Phantoms, A6 Intruders and A7 Corsairs- were from the carriers Kitty Hawk and Hancock on the Tonkin Gulf. Del Rio Boys Club Sets Summer Programs By GARTH JONES Associated Press Writer AUSTIN (AP) - Gov. Pros- Official Beaten VIDOB, Tex. {AP) -" Three men beat'a Victor city councilman Thursday night and the entire police force resigned during a stormy city council session. Orange County sheriff's Capt. Walter Billingsley said today that the three men accused of beating Councilman C. E. Scott are known members of the Ku Klux Klan. No charges or arrests were made immediately. Councilman C. E. Scott said he would file charges in the incident, which was apparently sparked by Scott's motion to fireVidorPolicemanB. L. Vandewater. Scott would only say he sought Vandewater's ouster for "reasons of a personal nature." Scott's motion passed 4-1 and spurred the resignation of Police Chief Robert Sawyer and the city's other five full-time policemen. Orange deputies said they pulled the three men off Scott as they were punching and kicking him. Although the three were reported to be from Lakeview, a Port Arthur suburb, Orange deputies said one was the Klan leader in Vldor. Orange County deputies patrolled Vidor Thursday night and will continue to do so until a new police force is hired. Sawyer was unavailable for comment today and Vanderwater declined to talk, stating. "The establishment will print whatever they want- to anyway. " Directors of the City of Del Rio Boys Club, meeting Thursday afternoon at the Del Rio Chamber of Commerce building, approved two programs which will be offered to the youngsters of the community this summer. Judo instructions will be offered to both boys-and girls, ages 12 to 18, in co-ed classes Tuesday . and Thursday evenings. Professional instructors under the direction of the Rev. Lonnie Green will be available to teach the course. The other program will be a summer-long series of weekend campouts at Lake Amistad. Boys Clubs officials said they hope to have enough camping sessions so that every boy between the ages of 10 and 16 who wishes to can go for one weekend. An attempt is being made to obtain women camp counselors so that camping can also be made available for girls groups. Bob Gazaille will have charge of the camping program. Meanwhile, directors reached tentative agreement in selecting a site for the future Boys Club building.

Smith gave reporters copies of a letter asking that a total of 175 counties be declared a major disaster relief area by presidential order. Smith asked major disaster relief for 60 counties on March 31. "Although I have never been officially notified I am under the impression, particularly from statements made by Sen. (John) Tower, that at this moment the president is against granting us this relief...We still have hope we can convince him different, "Smith said. Smith said he was "very sorry to see that John Tower has abandoned Texas' request for disaster relief and is how defending the position of the president. " Tower told a news conference in Washington Thursday he thought such presidential declarations should be reserved for quick developing catastrophes such as tornadoes and hurricanes. He said that declaring a disaster area of all the counties might "open a Pandora's box of troubles." Smith said he signed an agreement today between the state and the Department of Agriculture allowing farmers and ranchers to obtain emergency loans for livestock feed and hay. "However, a presidential proclamation (under public law 91-606) would give us much more relief, including such things as a $2,500 loan that could be forgiven under certain circumstances...We need a cash flow to our farmers and ranchers in addition to the feed and hay," Smith told a news conference. In his letter to the President the governor said, "Our farmers, ranchers and agricultural workers especially are suffering extensively from the effects of this drought. These workers have little or no income on which to support their families outside of the work they can find on Texas farms and ranches." Also in the news conference, the governor: — Distributed copies of a letter mailed to all daily and weekly newspaper editors saying that his original recommendations to the legislature, if passed, would have resulted r in a need for $320 million new taxes plus a state college tuition increase. He said his plan could have been financed by increasing the sales tax from 3.25 to 4 per cent and the pending liquor-by-the-drink taxes. —Estimated Texas might save as much as $30 million by not approving a second year appropriation now for public welfare and waiting until a special session in 1972. He said his recent trip to Washington convinced him chances were good for some federal relief on welfare by Sept. 1, 1972. —Asked for all information available on the "judicial reform "bill that was filibustered for 13 hours before it passed theSenate early Friday. Among other things it would permit 10-2 jury verdicts in civil liability cases based on fault. —Said "We're considering" a third term, but was not ready to make any announcement.

(News-Herald Photo) Cosmonauts Zero In For Safe/life Rendezvous MOSCOW (AP) - Three Soviet cosmonauts eased their Soyuz 10 spaceship into a parallel orbit with the unmanned target shipSalute today and zeroed in for a rendezvous with the satellite launched four days ago. Soyuz 10 streaked into orbit early this morning and began pursuing Salute, launched early Monday. If the two craft link up. it would be a major step to building an orbiting space laboratory, one of the main goals in the Soviet space program. ,Soyuz, 10 was In an orbit slightly higher than that of Salute, but their angles of inclination to the' equator were exactlythe same, 51,6 degrees. This means that Soyuz 10 would only have to .slow down a bit to drop into the same orbit as Salute. At Jodrell Bank, England Sir Bernard Love 11, a leading expert on the Soviet space program, predicted that Russia's Soyuz 10 cosmonauts will attempt to transfer to the unmanned Salute craft. Lovell heads the research team at the observatory which has used a giant radio telescope to track every major Soviet space flight since the first 10 years ago, Lovelisaid he was-waitli>g to see what transfer method would be used, a space walk or a docking system. He told newsmen he believed the Russians were "very close to carrying out procedures which have been anticipated for some time." The director of West Germany's Bochum space tracking station, Heinz Kaminski, predicted one or two more spacecraft would be sent up to be attached to Soyuz 10 and Salute. He suggested tonight or Saturday night as possible launch times. Soyuz 10 will conduct "joint experiments" with Salute, the official Soviet announcement said. It did not specify whether this would include docking, but Soviet spacecraft have docked in space before, and it ap- peared a likely step in the orbital laboratory program. The huge, three-stage carrier rocket lifted off its launching pad at the Baikonur space complex in central Asia at 2:45 a.m., or 6:45 p.m. Thursday EST. Aboard were Vladimir A; Shatalov, the commander; Alexei S. Yeliseyev, the flight engineer, and Nikolai Ruka- vishnikov, test engineer. The rocket jettisoned its first stage shortly after liftoff and then locked Into earth orbit with a high point of 154 miles and a low point of 129.8 miles. This was very close to Salute's orbit which ranges between 137.9 and 124.2 miles above the earth. Kaminski said this indicated the current operation isva re-, hearsal, not an attempt to establish a manned space lab in orbit. SEARS Chain Link Fence Sale 59« F ,. 4 Ft. Ht.
