The target was 168 miles north of the demilitarized zone and two miles south of the 19th parallel, the northern limit for the bombing set by President Johnson.

But the monsoon has begun to break and Sunday there were "light to broken clouds," the U.S. Command said. The 151 missions was the second highest total of the year, approaching the 160 flown on Friday, before the clouds settled in again.

(AP) _ Greenwood businessmen and residents have begun to regroup and lay plans for rebuilding their city after a killer tornado struck Friday. Thirteen persons were killed by the twister and 270 others injured. Most of the rubble and debris in the downtown section has been bulldozed away. A group of Greenwood businessmen met Sunday with the Western Arkansas Economic Development Association to discuss plans for rebuilding the downtown sections on an overall architectural plan. Association Director Leon Hardin said he and Sebastian County Judge Ben Geren met Sunday with about 30 of the city's business leaders, Hardin said the businessmen wanted an over-all plan for the downtown area rather than have each merchant rebuild as he pleased, Geren, who is also president of the WAED, asked Hardin to move rapidly to provide necessary planning and coordinate plans with tho various federal agencies that will provide money and low»interest, long-term loans. Representatives of the Small Business Administration were In Greenwood today. Geren said the governor's off flee has been asked for federal disaster funds, but the governor's office said today no word has been received on the application yet. All other city projects have been temporarily dropped in order to devote full time to rebuilding. Geren said today that all businesses in town were closed today and that food is having to be brought into the city. Geren said the Red Cross and Salvation Army has set up kitchens to feed the children. HOPE (ARK) STAR, Printed ft 0ff*«t COURT ORDER (From Page 1) Electric manufacturing em- ployes in Buffalo, N.Y., also have walked out. Where Bell System contracts have not expired, such as in AI* abama and. Kentucky, many telephone workers are refusing to cross the picket lines of the Western Electric Installers. The union previously rejected company offers of a 7.5 per cent increase in wages, which now average $3.27 per hour for Western Electric telephone installers and $2,79 for Bell System workers. The company said the union had demanded increases of 10i5 per cent over 18 months. The New Jersey Bell Tele* phone Co* offered a $1,000 re* ward for information on dam» age to about 10 telephone booths, including one riddled by bullets, and also said 62 cables have been slashed since the start of the strike. The walkout began four days earlier in New Jersey, where members of the AFL-CIO International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers struck before the Communications Workers. Union officials in New Jersey protested the firing of four workers accused by the company of misconduct, ONLY NINE (from page one) apportionment to determine who must stand for re-election. The high court disagreed with the GOP contention, saying that the drawing for lots should come on a reapportionment following a federal census every 10 years if a reapportionment is required. The reapportionmsnt that left the election of senators out of balance came under court order. The high court said the constitutional provisions amount to a restriction upon the length of terms of off ice for which some senators are elected and that all senators are aware of it and would have no grounds to complain if their terms were limited to two years through lot drawing after a federal census reapportionment. "But we do not think an additional restriction should be placed on their tenure in the absence of constitutional sanction," wrote Associate Justice Lyle Brown in the unanimous decision. The ruling upheld that on Circuit Judge Warren E. Wood of Little Rock. The high court said there is no occasion for a drawing of lots until at least after the 1970 Monday, April 22,1968 federal census has been taken. "We would also point out that appellants (Republicans) seek a mandatory drawing for 26 senators whereas the constitu* tion requires that 35 senators participate," the court said. The nine senators who must stand for re-election this year are Dorathy Allen of Brinkley, James Lee Bearclen of Leachville, Clarence E. Bell of Parkin, Russell EIrod of Siloam Springs, W. K. "Bill" Ingram of West Memphis, Guy H. "Mutt" Jones of Couway, Cecil M. McNiel of Rector, Knox Nelson of Pine Bluff and Morrell GathriRht of Pine Bluff.
