BOMBERS IN From (Page 1) North Vietnam before Johnson on April 1 ordered them to slay south •yf. tho 20th parallel of latitude. Ten days la'er the President, in a .n<?"e never publicly announced, put the northern limit for bombings raids at the 19th parallel, 170 miles north tf the demilitarized zone. The curtail- mont w.vs aimed at Inducing the North Vietnamese to open pea^e negotiations. Tlva doepast rported penetration Thursday was a raid by Navy A4 Skyhawks from the carrier Enterprise on a ratlroal bridge one mile below the 19th parallel and 1G9 miles north of the demilitarized zone. Somo U.S. sources say thai: despite Johnson's curtailment order allowing tha North Vietnamese to move WAV supplies with impunity down to the 19th parallel, a distance of 140 miles from Hanoi, there lias been very little change in enemy truck traffic in the southern panhandle. The U.S. Command said a limited damage assessment showed tha raiders Thursday destroyed or damaged 14 bridges, 13 trucks and 16 boats, barges or sampans; cut bridges and roacls in many places, and touched off several secondary explosions and fires, indicating the planes hit fuel or ammunition dumps. The pilots reported antiaircraft fire was light to moderate. Testifies Man Could Have Shot Himself WALNUT RIDGE, Ark.
