Helicopters Crash in Jungle Of S. Viet Nam SAIGON, South Viet Nam (UPI) —Two U.S. Marine Corps helicopters carrying 12 Americans crashed Tuesday night in the central highland jungles, possibly shot down by Communist ground fire. An American military spokesman said rescue planes sighted the wreckage of both helicopters today. There was no sign of survivors, and search aircraft were fired on by the Red guerillas, killing and wounding South Vietnamese and U.S. Marine officers and two Vietnamese. Sight Wreckage The wreckage of the two downed Marine . helicopters was sighted near the banks of the Thubon River, about a half mile from the wreckage of a T28 fighter - bomber plane which crashed under Communist fire Tuesday, killing an American army captain who was its pilot. If the 12 Americans on the two downed helicopters are dead, it would bring to 124 the total number of Americans who have died in this strife-torn country since the United States began all-out aid in the fight against the Communist Viet Cong rebels. Although the official U.S. military spokesman said it still was not certain whether the helicopters were shot down by the communists or crashed because of mechanical troubles, another military source said he believed they were shot down. On Rescue Mission Both helicopters were taking Congressman Tells Diem Of Concern SAIGON, Viet Nam (UPI)—Rep. Wjlliam S. Broomfield (R-Mich.,) member of an eight-man U.S. congressional team touring Viet Nam, has protested to President Ngo Dinh Diem against the beating of three American newsmen by Vietnamese police. Broomfield said Tuesday he had made the protest the : Father Will Not Call on Madam Nhu in separate meetings team held earlier in the day with the president and his adviser brother, Ngo Dinh Nhu. "When we arrived here I was deeply disturbed to find a correspondent (John Sharkey of National Broadcasting Co., from Detroit), who was a constituent of mine had been beaten up last Saturday," Broomfield said. "During our talks at the highest level I also entered my official protest against the beatings," he said. Sharkey and two other newsmen were beaten while covering the suicide by fire of a Buddhist priest in Saigon as a demonstration against alleged government religious persecution. Rep. Clement J. Zablocki (D- Wis.), chairman of the congressional investigating team of the House Far East affairs subcommittee, said the group discussed with both Diem and Nhu "all subjects and problems of common interest, including the difficulty of fighting the Communists in this area." part in rescue operations in the rugged mountains near the Laotian border where a Vietnamese Air Force T28 fighter bomber was shot down, apparently killing a U .S. Air Force captain and a Vietnamese observer. Search planes also reported no signs of survivors at the site on the T28 crash. The spokesman said the Americans aboard the helicopters included four Marine officer pilots, five Marine enlisted crewmen, one Navy doctor and two Navy hospital corpsmen. Both helicopters belonged to a newly • arrived Marine Corps squadron based at Danang about 40 miles northeast of the crash site, which is 325 miles north of Saigon. An all-out air rescue search had been launched at dawn today when the two helicopters failed to return to Danang Tuesday night. They had last been heard from at dusk, heading back to the base from the site of the T28 crash. ; ,;f'ir f * lift! 1 n , 'W; : > ] W i iifiiifw!:'""'*!-? ;•'«'•• ILL — Prime Minister Mac* mlllao entered a London Hospital Tuesday on the eve of his Conservative Party's annual conference due to • pros* tatic obstruction, a condition not unusual for a man of his age, 69, but at what appears to be adverse timing. UNIFAX NEW YORK (UPI) — Mme. Ngo Dinh Nhu begins a whirlwind round of speaking engagements today that she hopes will silence her critics and those of her brother-in-law's regime in South Viet Nam. While Mme. Nhu was quiet, her father, Tran Van Chuong, spoke to a club meeting a few blocks from her hotel and again rebuffed her, saying he did not intend to see his daughter during her three- week visit in the United States. Chuong, who did express a desire to meet his granddaughter, said he would refuse to see Mme. Nhu because "I am fully conscious of the harm that has been done to my country by the Diem family to which she belongs."

The annual conference of the nil ing Tories opened formally in an mosphere of shock and confusion at the development. There was a sense Of unreality about the party's, debates on national educational and health because the issue of, leadership was, the only one preoccupying the 4,000 assembled delegates. * Elder statesmen, managers and Cabinet ministers who form the party hierarchy faced a stark choice between soldiering on leaderless for the next two or three months in the expectation that Macmillan will recover, or agreeing by Saturday on an heir- apparent who would be ready to take over the minute Macmillan signals he has had enough. Even though the leaders themselves still were deeply engaged in secret discussion over the claims of rival contenders, it became increasingly evident that the consensus among them was that the present situation could not be allowed to continue. The word in private was that a big effort is under way right now to agree on the man to be designated heir-apparent. Mobsters Violated Own Narcotic Ban, Valachi Testifies Flora Floats Away Leaving Heavy Toll MIAMI (UPI) - Hurricane Flora's Caribbean death toll rose to more than 2,700 known fatalities and another 6,500 were feared lost today as the storm finally moved toward the open Atlantic and away from the U.S. mainland. Radio reports, intercepted in Miami, added 105 known dead and 4,000 missing in eastern Cuba to previous reports of 2,500 dead and fears for 2,500 others in Haiti and at least 112 other dead in Cuba. In its nine-day rampage through the Caribbean and across the southeastern Bahamas, the hurri cane which may turn out to be the most deadly of the 20th Century, also claimed nearly 50 more lives in Tabago, Grenada, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. A Cuban radio broadcast reported this morning that "two entire villages have disappeared, washed away by the flood waters, and there is fear that 4,000 students and workers have perished." The villages were not identified. Although it may be weeks before tiie full extent of death and damage can be determined, the Miami Weather Boreau^sejd dam-! age in Cuba alone would run into "several hundred mffliona of dollars." Haiti counted nearly $100 million in damages. Did So Despite Danger of Death WASHINGTON (AP) — Joseph Valachi testified today that the bosses of Cosa Nostra crime syndicate laid down a rule against narcotics trafficking in 1957 but money-hungry gangsters violated the rule even at the risk of death. Under heavy guard as he made his fifth appearance before the Senate investigations subcommittee, Valachi said that mob leaders m Chicago paid their "soldiers" a $200-a-week sub- Council Approves Use of Modern Language in Mass SUCCESSOR to Pick Powell. A hair stylist, Glenn Maxwell, is to wed the widow of pick Powell, June AUysea, at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., a spokesman has reported. Miss Allyson and her two children, Pam, 15, and Ricky, 13, flew from California for the approaching event. UNIFAX VATICAN CITY (UPI) - Ecumenical Council fathers today overwhelmingly approved a series of proposals authorizing introduction of modern languages to replace Latin in large portions of the Mass. Eight separate amendments to the document on the worship of the church were ratified at today's session of the council by top-heavy majorities. The largest negative vote on any of the amendments was 96 out of 2,227 votes cast, Four of the amendments concern the use of vernacular — the everyday language of the people —in the Mass where this is desired by national or regional conferences of bishops. Endorsed Last Fall The general principle of allowing Catholics to worship in their own language was endorsed by the council at its first session last fall. Today's voting was on specific amendments to the draft document on providing for this and numerous other reforms in The effect of the amendments approved today is to make it clear that the use of modern lan­ guages in optional with the bishops of each country and those who wish to continue an all-latin mass may do so. They also provide for a wider use of vernacular than the original text would have dope. For example, the original text would have restricted modern languages to the reading of the Gospel and Epistles and certain other portions of the so • called "fore- Mass." An amendment approved today by a vote of 2,212 to 47 says that if local circumstances warrant, modern languages may be used in all parts of the Mass which "belong to the people." That is those chants and responses in which the congregation is supported to participate, such as the Credo and Sanctus. Wider Use Possible Another very significant amendment, approved 2,149 to 67, says that a still wider use of modern languages may be permissible if proposed by the bishops of a country and approved by the Pope. This opens the door for possible future introduction of modern languages even in the Canon of the sidy to lay off handling narcotics. A convicted killer and narcotics peddler himself, Valachi said he had heard while he was in jail in Atlanta that the weekly payments had been raised to $250. But Valachi said that in New York the bosses of the Cosa Nostra mobs, or families, didn't make these payments to their "soldiers" and this caused some grumbling. Had No Chance He testified that if gang members in Chicago were caught deal ing in narcotics after getting the weekly payments to lay off, they had "no chance at all." Asked what the penalty .was in the New York family bossed by Vito- Genovese, in which he was a lowly soldier, Valachi said that "iutihey had the evidence on. you, •you were': dead'." . ,'•> | .But Valachi. acknowledged he| had broken the rule. And he said that so had some of the bosses, "especially Albert Anastasia;" He named Genovese, now in jail after a narcotics conviction, as another boss who violated his own rule. Valachi said the rule against trafficking in narcotics was put into effect for Genovese's mob in 1948 but that it did not apply to all the Cosa Nostra families until after Albert Anastasia's slaying in 1957. Money Maker Anastasia was listed in previous testimony, as the boss of another New York family before he was killed, not as a member of Geno- ovese's gang Valachi said that narcotics were one of the principal money-makers for the mobs, but the ban on dealing in them was ordered for Genovese's family after publicity and prosecutions had reached a peak. He said members defied the rule because of ^ \o&.m& .1* said that if they %e™ arretrtid. they had to stand "another trial by the family after their government trial." Showdown in Algeria May Be in Offing ALGIERS (AP)— A showdown appeared building up today in Algeria's Berber revolt as President Ahmed Ben Bella cancelled a trip to the U.N. General Assembly and moved more troops toward the rebel stronghold in the Kabylie Mountains. Apparently abandoning hope of settling the dispute by negotiation, Ben Bella ordered troop convoys into the mountains east of Algiers and told a news conference: "There will be no discussions with the criminals, no bargaining. They only understand the language of machine guns." Ben Bella, who had been scheduled to leave today for New York, also announced that 10 persons had been killed in a clash in the coal-rich Colomb-Bechar area of the northwest Sahara which both Morocco and Algeria claim. He blamed the incident on "uncontrolled Moroccan elements"—an apparent slap at the Moroccan government—but did not say which side suffered the casualties. There was no immediate comment from Moroccan officials. The Algerian government's major concern was the rebellion of Mass—the most sacred portion of the service in which the priest re-enacts the sacrifice of Christ on Calvary. Other amendments approved today strongly commend the reception of Holy Communion by the faithful each time they attend Mass rather than only on special occasions, and authorize the reception of communion in both species—that is, wine as well as bread — by the laity on certain special occasions. As a consolation of traditionalists in the church, the fathers also adopted an amendment urging pastors to teach the faithful how to make their responses in Latin even though the service is 'normally conducted in a modern language. The amendment says this is desirable so that Catholics can take part in mass when they go to another country. One amendment stresses the importance of worshippers taking part in the "service of the word," that is, the sermon and scripture —reading portions of the Massas well as the actual Eucharist, It says that the obligation to at tend the entire service is especially great on Sundays and holy days. Mission Will Check Claims Of Buddhists UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) —A U.N. fact-finding mission is expected to leave soon for South Viet Nam to investigate charges that President Ngo Dinh Diem's regime is violating the rights of Buddhists. The assembly agreed Tuesday to dispatch a mission to be appointed by U.N. President Carlos Sosa-Rodriguez of Venezuela with instructions to report to the 111- nation forum as soon as possible. Consent came without a formal vote after behind-scenes talks succeeded in getting the Soviet Union to drop a rival proposal which would have blocked a direct U.N. investigation. Others Withdraw Under the agreement, Chile and Costa Rica also withdrew a proposal that an inquiry be launched. This left the way clear for Sosa- Rodriguez to accede to the Diem government's request that a mission be sent. U.N. sources said he would start lining up the group today. Informed sources said Sosa-Rodriguez probably would name seven members, including three from Asia, two from Africa and two from Latin America. Meanwhile, assembly debate is suspended on the charge that Buddhist rights are being violated in South Viet Nam. The outcome obviously pleased the United States, which did not relish full-dress discussion of the Vietnamese issue at this stage. Trial Is Postponed MANCHESTER, England (UPi) —The trial of Samuel Waters, 25, accused of wounding with intent to murder, was postponed Tuesday when lawyers said Waters was under treatment for a razor blade and water glass fragments he swallowed in prison.

Wis., labor attorney, to be federal judge of the Western Wisconsin District. Aides to his Senate sponsors. Wisconsin's Democratic Sens. William Proxmire and Gaylord Nelson, said they knew of no opposition witnesses from their state. But according to other sources, opposition already has been filed in letters to Sen. James O. Eastland, D-Miss., chairman of the subcommittee and of the parent committee. The letter writers were Wisconsin attorneys, many of them Democrats, it was said. And Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen, IU., told newsmen at an impromptu news conference late Tuesday that two nominees for federal judge now before the committee had produced more letters of protest than any other judicial nominations. He declined to identify either, but newsmen learned he referred to Rabinovitz and to George C. Edwards Jr., Detroit police commissioner and former justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, nominated to the Sixth Circuit Court. The vacancy has existed on the Wisconsin bench since the death of Judge Patrick Stone, Wausau, last Jan. 13. Democratic officeholders early in the year endorsed five candidates to succeed stone. Rabinovitz, an early supporter of President Kennedy for the Democratic presidential nomination in I960, was included in the list submitted to the White House.
