Leathernecks Running Into Heavy fire SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Two U.S. Marine companies ran into heavy fighting late today in their drive to clear Communist forces from a canal- laced peninsula 35 miles southeast of the North Vietnamese border. The action flared up again after the Viet Cong shied from contact Tuesday with the Leathernecks and Vietnamese troops hunting them down in the rice- lands overlooking the South China Sea 12 miles southeast of the old imperial capital of Hue. Monday the Marines reported killing 40 Reds and capturing many weapons. Marine headquarters at Da Nang said the Leathernecks suffered light casualties in the new righting with the large Viet Cong force. Communists losses were not known. The battle was taking place about six miles southeast of the Marine camp at Phu Bai, Otherwise U.S. planes carried the brunt of the war against the Communists today. Only scattered skirmishes were reported from American and Vietnamese forces slogging through the jungles and rice paddies. Air Force B52 bombers roared past slumbering Saigon before dawn to drop their 500. and 750- j pound bombs on a suspected Viet Cong storage area near Bien Hoa. only 20 miles northeast of the capital. Another flight of the eight-engine bombers from Guam pounded a Viet Cong troop concentration reported by intelligence in Phuoc Tuy Province, 55 miies east of Saigon. Despite heavy cloud cover, U.S. Air Force and Navy fighter-bombers flew 34 missions against North Viet Nam, relying mostly on radar to lead them to an assortment of bridges, roads and storage areas between the 17th Parallel demilitarized zone and the Vinh area. The U.S. Military Command announced that 109 Americans were killed and 747 wounded in the fighting last week, which included a fierce Viet Cong assault on a regiment on the U.S. 1st Infantry Division 30 miles north of Saigon Thursday. No Americans were reported missing. mended for its promptness.

"We have some students who have already graduated and are paying back their loans. Some five or six will graduate in June or at the end of the summer and may begin paying back their loans. These are students who could not have attended college without the feeling that he has someone behind him." He elaborated with one case of a young married man who applied for a loan and was accepted. After he started his classes, he got a parttime job and has not had to call for his loan. The deadline for accepting loan application is April 1. Applications are available at Lee College. The loans, based on need, are available to any deserving student in the Baytown School District who cannot receive financial aid elsewhere. Preference is usually given to students who have already completed two years at Lee College. Age makes no difference. The U.S. Office of Education has advised the Loan Fund that the group should continue their efforts, Comeaux told the board. Comeaux said the inquiry was made by the board after recent newspaper publicity on federal aid to education.
