In the Da N a n g area U.S. Marines avenged weeks of harassment with two successful combat patrols. In the air war U.S. Navy and Vietnamese air Force planes destroyed or damaged boxcars. radar stations, military buildings and three small bridges in Communist North Viet Nam. All planes returned safely to base, a military spokesman reported. The Marine combat patrols from Da Nang killed seven Viet Cong and captured a wounded guerrilla in perhaps their most successful strike of the war. Two Marines were slight Jv wounded when one stepped on a mine and a third was wounded by a booby trap. One Marine patrol killed sev- en guerrillas in a thrust at the village of Thai Binh, six miles west of Da Nang. In this operation two companies caught the guerrillas between them and called down an artillery bar- nine in a classic "hammer and anvil maneuver." The other patrol revisited the village of Le My where four Leathernecks were wounded Tuesday. It encountered some fire but made no serious contact The patrol captured a guerrilla wounded Tuesday and heard reports from villagers the Viet Cong carried off two dead and three wounded Tuesday. An American military spokesman reported that Viet Cong guerrillas have sharply Increased their activities with the coming of the first monsoon rains. He reported 25 "incidents" including one attack, seven cases of sabotage and 17 incidents of terrorism in the past 24 hours. The South Vietnamese government in an official show of disfavor toward France's Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) policy announced it was expelling the bureau chief of the Agence Prance Press (AFP) and banning French cultural mission radio broadcasts in this country. France, opposed to U.S. military operations in Viet Nam. boycotted the current SEATO meeting In London. A spokesman reporting on the air war said six Navy jets from the carrier Midway hit 11 boxcars on a rail siding 20 miles north of Vinh and blew up a nearby building. Vietnamese planes bombed two suspected radar sites and left two buildings in flames. Other Vietnamese planes shot up three small bridges on the north-south national highway . The combat-ready paratroop force which landed today Immediately dug In to fend off any Communist attacks on bases within sniping distance of guerrilla forces. Huge C130 transport planes rumbled into the Bien Mao and Vung Tau air bases throughout the day in a massive airlift of the 3,500-man 173rd Airborne Brigade from Okinawa. It is the first U.S. Army unit committed to the war effort In an acknowledged combat role. i 'Firm Truce' iqned In Dominican Union Reviving Fireman Dispute WASHINGTON' (fPD - A this has benefited the public ilioad labor union is reviving 1 through rate reductions or ser- lone and bitter dispute over; vice improvements from!
