At the top of the form, returnable to the Census Bureau this year reporting 1967 statistics on private business, the Government agency publishes the shops and same public notice given in is usual, earlier forms, as follows: "NOTICE - Response to this inquiry is required by law (Title 13 U.S. Code). By the same law, your report to the Census Bureau is confidential. It may be seen only by sworn Census employes and may be used only for statistical purposes." But the 1967 form adds this line to the Notice of earlier years: "The law also provides that copies retained in your files are immune from legal process." This last line is untrue. As I pointed out in my editorial of April 30 the Supreme Court of the United States declared in a decision Dec. 11, 1961, that while original reports in the files of the Census Bureau are immune to legal process this protection DOES NOT extend to copies remaining in private business files— and these copies may be demanded by Government • agents. French Strike Fails to Reach Goal By LOUIS NEVIN Associated Press Writer PARIS (AP) — French labor unions, students and opposition politicians joined today in the first nationwide general strike of President Charles de Gaulle's 10-year rule. But by midday the attempt to paralyze France appeared to have fallen far shorl of its mark. Except for scattered slowdowns and disruptions the coun° try seemed largely unaffected. Train service was reduced departure of international flights from France was canceled, traffic in the cities was less than normal. But power supplies continued with only spotty interruptions and many offices did business Honor Graduates Weekend Death Toll Is Worst In Paris, one of the electricity cutoffs hit the two hotels housing the U.S. and North Vietnamese delegations to the Vietnam peace conference. But at the conference building, where full-scale discussions got under way this morning, there were no effects. The nation's four mam trade unions acted together for the first time in more than a decade to organize the strike. Security officials hoped that a major demonstration planned during the afternoon would not turn violent. Thousands of students were expected to join with workers in a three-hour march through a working class district to the left bank. The strike was called in support of students at the University of Paris whose conflict with the government erupted last week in bloody battles with police. The riots, strikes and demonstrations could not have come at a more embarrassing time for CAROL ANTHONY Carol Anthony and Jimmy Turner lead the 1968 graduating class of Hope High School scholastically.

By FRED HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 20,000 Army, Air Force and Navy Reservists and National Guardsmen—about half of them Vietnam-bound—answer President Johnson's call to active duty today. How long they stay in uniform will depend at least partly on the course of U.S.-North Vietnamese talks beginning today in Paris. They could be held on active duty for up to two years. The course of the peace talks may also determine whether any more citizen soldiers and sailors will be called up. Pentagon officials said no decision has been reached on any further muster of Reservists. Acting on Johnson's orders, Secretary of Defense Clark M. Clifford announced April 11 that Some of Those Little Irritating Remarks Made Around theHouse Negro Named to L.R.

"What do you do with yourself all day—watch soap operas?" "Hey, mom, can you drive me to school this morning? I don't feel like walking." "I lost so much at poker last night that you'll have to give me some of your household money to tide me over to pay day." "Yes, it's an attractive dress, but don't you think it's for a younger woman?

Clifford said about 10,000 of the Reservists and Guardsmen would be sent to Vietnam to provide needed support troops and the rest would help fill out the badly depleted central force of fighting men kept in the United States for possible use worldwide. Last week, about 1,250 Air Force and Air Guard troops were excused from active service because it was found regular Air Force units could provide the support functions the Reservists had been designated to fill. This reduced the over-all cal- lup total to about 23,300. Nearly 20,000 report today. They form some 87 units In 34 states. Another 3,600 Individual Reservists from the Army ready reserve manpower pool will show up for active duty starting June 15, the Pentagon said. These men will fill out the ranks of understrength units called to active duty. The new callup brings to more than 38,000 the number of Reservists and Guardsmen ordered to active duty since January.

Meet In an Atmosphere of Hope Red Attack APN ^» est CongAccused of Troop Buildup on Saigon Is Crushed By GEORGE ESPER Associated Press Writer SAIGON (AP) - The U.S. Command says allied troops have crushed the main thrust of the Communist command's nine-day-oid attack on Saigon, but it also announced the loss of a Special Forces camp 350 miles to the northeast. Headquarters said Special Forces-- Green Beret — troops and South Vietnamese irregulars were evacuated by air Sunday from the Kham Due Camp after North Vietnamese troops attacked one of its outposts and threatened to overrun the entire camp. The enemy shot down one of the evacuation planes, a four- engine C130 transport, killing the six Air Force crewmen and an undisclosed number of civilian irregulars and South Vietnamese army soldiers, U.S. headquarters said. A C130 can carry about 100 troops. The camp, with about 400 defenders, came under attack Friday. Headquarters said preliminary reports showed 19 Americans killed and 89 wounded. It had no figures on South Vietnamese casualties. Troops of the U.S. 196th light Infantry Brigade moved in to cover the withdrawal, and military spokesmen said more than 300 enemy soldiers were esti- LV« been killed. They, tin unknown additional number were killed in massive air strikes, including seven missions near the camp by Air Force B52 bombers Sunday night and today. Lt. Gen. Fred C. Weyand announced the victory over the enemy's main thrust against Saigon. "Although isolated small attacks, terrorism and harassment by fire, including rockets, are still possible, large numbers of the enemy have been attempting to withdraw from the battlefield for the past 48 hours, many being intercepted in the process," said Weyand, who commands the 2nd Field force. The general said more than 5,200 enemy soldiers were killed or captured in the 3rd Corps Tactical Zone—Saigon and the 11 provinces around it—since the Viet Cong launched their offensive May 5. He said about half of these were lost in greater Saigon area. The remainder were killed or captured when their units were intercepted ' T See RED ATTACK on Page Two U.S. and North Vietnamese negotiators meet in an atmosphere of slender hope. the principals in the Vietnam peace talks are as different as the worlds they represent, U.S. officers say the Viet Cong appears to be pulling away from Saigon after a week of attacks.
