Dodd D-Conn., just back from a tour of inspection in Southeast Asia criticized press coverage of the long war in Viet Nam. He proposed that the Senate Foreign Halations Committee send a bipartisan delegation to the scene •o that "non-facts be laid at rest." The Senate debate was touched off by the first formal disclosure here on Tuesday that U.S. troops have for some time been authorized to conduct "combat support" of South Vietnamese units under certain conditions. Prior to Tuesday there had been no indication — save for s [elements by an anonymous military spokesman in Saigon— that the 53,500-man American force in Viet Nam could do any more than guard key installations and conduct "aggressive patrolling."
