John E. Ingcrsoll, director of the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD), said methadone use is quickly approaching marijuana and heroin as a major part of the illegaV drug traffic in the United States. Government Authority He told a House Commerce subcommittee he favored proposals to give the government more authority in dealing with the methadone traffic. "Of approximately 325 substances on which data are collected," Ingersoll testified, "methadone consistently ranks in the top 10 in frequency of reported incidents." He said marijuana and heroin continued to lead the list. "Data for an eight-month period ending in April, 1973, the more current reporting month, show that the incidents involving methadone constitute major portion of all narcotic reports," he said. Ingersoll said BNDD's Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) collected 822 incidents of heroin usage from 13 sample points in April, compared to 643 in September. 200 Incidents It cited 200 illicit methadone incidents in April, compared with only 93 last September. Part of the problem, Ingersoll said, was that during the past 30 months the number of addicts enrolled in methadone control programs has grown from several thousand to as high as 70,000 and the number of practitioners, or dispensers, from several dozen to several hundred. Ingersoll said methadone is diverted to illicit use by unscrupulous practitioners, negligence or ignorance by legitimate practitioners, and by individual patients in the programs selling their dosage to others.

SAIGON (UPI) - President Nguyen Van Thieu today warned the world not to be lulled by Communist appeals for peace and charged "the Communist scheme is still to take over South Vietnam by force." Speaking at annual Armed Forces Day festivities, Thieu told an estimated 50,000 onlookers in downtown Saigon: "In the past 18 years it was not because of their peace and goodwill and national love that the Communists spoke of stopping the fighting. And they will never give up their scheme to reinvade our South." Viet Flyover At the end of his nine-minute speech, dozens of South Viet- n a m e s e helicopters, cargo planes and fighter-bombers swept over the city. The flyover was followed by a parade featuring about 20,000 members of the armed forces who SUNSHINE SHOP VALUES DURING MOONLIGHT HOURS /Wy* Madness 1 Open Wednesday Nite 6 to 9 Casual Slippers Regularly $4-$8 6-9 PM only ^2 • Mercury Label S-XL • Slippers, Indoor - Outdoor Pant Suits Regularly to $38 $| Q99 Big Assortment | • New Styles Added • Washable, For Summer Summer Shorts Big ^ f \Q/ Assortment /O off • Cottons, Nylons, Polyester • Colors.

It was a perfect day for the parade, which featured a good deal of the $5 billion in U.S. military equipment owned by South Vietnam. Temperatures were mild and, although it is the monsoon season in South Vietnam, the skies were cloudless. Because of the holiday there was no morning military news briefing on Communist cease­ fire violations but Thieu in dicated there had been no real let-up in the fighting. Cease-Fire Violations "The Communist scheme is still to take over South Vietnam by force," he said. "Last June 13 the cease-fire was once again pledged by the Communists but in past days they have still continued to seriously violate it. This is enough to confirm that the Communists' intention is not to restore peace by a temperate solution." He praised the military for recapturing most of the territory taken by the Communists in the spring offensive in 1972.

"Exactly three months later you defeated the Communist invading troops on all the main fronts and the important territories were retaken." The Communists, however, still control much of northernmost Quang Tri Province just below the former Demilitarized Zone and a vast area around Loc Ninh, 75 miles north of Saigon near the Cambodian border. WASHINGTON (UPI) - Attorneys afctenijptog ito overturn the conviction of Lt. William L. Galley Jr. have asked a military court to probe the role the White House played in investigating Uhe My Lai massacre. The attorneys filed a motion Monday with the U.S. Court of Military Appeals asking it to order the production of interviews, wirettapg, logs and other records collected by two former White House aides who have been mentioned in the Watergate case. The lawyers cited published reports that former New York policeman John J. Caulfield and an associate, Anthony F. Ulasewicz, interviewed My Lai participants on behalf of the White House. Caulfield and Ulasewicz Highway Battle Is Successful, Bombs Stopped PHNOM PENH (UPI) Cambodian troops today linked forces on a major supply highway south of Phnom Penh that had been under Communist siege for several days and for the first time in weeks no U.S bombing was heard in the capital. The successful ground opera tion followed by one day the arrival in Phnom Penh of a 13- ship convoy carrying vital supplies up the Mekong River. Communist gunfire raked escort boats accompanying the convoy, killing a Cambodian soldier and wounding two others. Reporters in the field said government itroops linked up today on Highway 4, Phnom Penh's vital supply line to the nation's only seaport at Kom- pong Som. worked on undercover projects fof the White Housa for three years' beginning the spring of I960, principally under the supervision of John; D. Ehrllch* man, one of President Nixon's chief aides. Ensure Silence The two investigators told the Senate Watergate Committee they sought to ensure the silence of James W. McCord, one of the seven men convicted of burglarizing Democratic national headquarters. Capt. J. Houston Gordon, Carey's principal military lawyer, said the attorneys had asked the court to obHain the records to learn "everything the White House staff did that involved My Lai." "We don't know what we'll 'ind in the records because we didn't know about their involvement before," Gordon said. Gordon said BIICH material might nates doubts obou* the truthfulness of witnesses if they said one thing to the White House investigators and another at Uhe court martial of Galley. It said the records also could supply evidence of a White House effort to convict Calley. Gailey'g defenders already have charged that numerous high officials, including President Nixon and then Army Chief of Staff William G, Westmoreland, pursued a policy of punishing Calley "in order to cleanse the Army of any guilt." They have asserted that such "command influence" is grounds for overturning Calley's conviction. Calley was convicted of murdering at least 22 civilians in the massacre at My Lai March 16,1968.
