Troops believe they hit two gunmen during the battle in the Roman Catholic Mount Pottinger area of east Belfast, an army spokesman said. "One gunman was seen being dragged away screaming," he said. No-troops were reported hit. The running battle through ticians charged that the election was rigged. An election official in Saigon said he was ordered to replace anti-Thieu ballots with votes for the president. The national election center claimed Thieu—the only candidate—won 91.5 per cent of the votes cast, with 5.5 per cent of the votes against him. They were unable to account for the remaining three per cent of the votes cast. CAN'T SAY "Now, for the moment, we [can't say where they are," said government spokesman Vu Khanh. "Maybe later." One election official said the discrepancy could be due in part to the fact that seven ballot boxes were stolen in Da Nang, the scene of bloody anti- Thieu street riots during the election. He added that some voters might have thrown away both the Thieu 'ballot and the voting envelope after having their voting cards punched, possibly accounting, for more of the "missing votes." Before the election, Thieu told .voters he would step down if he did not receive at least a 50 per cent of the vote. He said JI.UC J.

Hijacking-Kidnaping Leaves Three Dead Task Force Opens Push ;•'•'.;»,*:£&>*.-••• M-*:;?'*'-^- '•- V In Cambodia SAIGON (AP) — An 800-man i South Vietnamese task force launched another drive today eastward from the Cambodian town of Krek toward a fire-base that has been under repeated enemy shelling for nine days. The task force, spearheaded by two armored units, pushed to within 1% miles of Fire Base Alpha near the Cambodia-South Vietnam border before it ran into enemy resistance.. Elsewhere, the South Vietnamese command in Saigon reported 92 enemy shellings and oilier attacks across South Viet- i nam in the 24 hours up to day- I break today. DISRUPT VOTING The surge in attacks, the most for a one-day period in a year and a half, apparently was tuned to coincide with South Vietnam's presidential elections and disrupt the voting. Policy Talk Delivered To General Assembly UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Secretary of State William P. Rogers pleaded strongly with the United Nations today not to oust Nationalist China, saying "the path of expulsion is perilous." Pagers also called for an accord to reopen the Suez Canal as a "major step toward peace" in the Midease, and set forth a six-point negotiating agenda to achieve this. In a wide-ranging annual policy speech to the 130- nation U.N.

"It is ironic that just as the sentiment for universality in the assembly is growing, many of those who have long extolled it now seek to violate it." Rogers referred to an Albanian resolution which would seat Peking in place of Taiwan. He termed it "punitive." seeking not "to deal with the facts settlement than we were before and we're still trying." . SET FOR TODAY The talks between the striking International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union and the Pacific Maritime Association were recessed after four hours with another session set for today. The strike which began July 1 had idled 15.000 longshoremen, tied up some 208 ships and their crews and cost the economy of California alone an estimated $1.5 billion.'

Two other persons, a copilot, and a.man charged with aiding Giffe, survived unharmed. ...

The two vacancies are delaying a vote on the constitutionality of the death penalty and other important questions. PROFOUND LOSS Burger said Black's departure was a profound loss. He said "throughout his entire life ' he never wavered in his unbounded faith in the people and in the political processes of a free people under the American Constitution." Black retired Sept. 17 and died Sept. 25. He had served as a justice for 34 years. Burger's tribute accented Black's reverence for the Constitution, respect for the Presidency and for Congress, but especially, his belief in the people.. He said: "In a period when institutions are under attack and wlien people themselves are having doubts about their own capacity to. govern themselves, this should give heart to all, for Hugo-Black had no doubt whatever about the. ability of an informed and free people to govern their own destinies."
