The objective, said one nation* al officer of Students for a Democratic society, is "an alliance jetween students and workers •^like in France.!'

"We Will learn how the workers, thiflk and how they live," Davids'on said. "Then we can brganisie." SDS, which claims 35,000 members on more than 200 campuses, has made similar attempts at community organizing in the past—generally without success. In 1963, it launched Economic Research and Action Projects (ERAP) in slum areas of 10 cities, but two years later dissolved the ERAP structure. 'Our rhetoric sometimes gets ahead of our programs," Davidson said. The renewed talk of expanding off campus follows two developments: .,.,-. 1, A year', of unprecedented unrest on U.S. campuses, begin n i n g with demonstrations against the Vietnam war and the military draft and ending with a paralyzing student strike at Columbia University. 2. The wave of disorders in France, sparked by a student- worker alliance that plunged President Charles-de Gaulle's government into its gravest crisis. Some SDS members contend the group should maintain its campus orientation, at least for present, and forget about trying to organize .workers. Thus, the proposals for community organ- zing may touch off debate at an 1-hour plenary session today at .he SDS' annual convention at Michigan State University, East a n s i n g. Newsmen /covering this week's convention are handed a nine-point memorandum stating that no one can bte quoted directly or indirectly. And re- jorters were excluded from two workshops Wednesday. But in the days preceding the convention, The Associated Press interviewed scores of SDS officers and members from Brooklyn to Berkeley.

"You're not a student forever," Davidson said as he ate apple pie in a restaurant near the SDS national office in Chicago and talked of the off-campus or ganizing plans—a project he dubbed "Discover America." The 24-year-old Penn State graduate, who sports a shaggy mustache and wears heavy boots, plans to move to Phila delphia as an, organizer after hii term as national secretary ends this weekend. "We're using draft resistance as the basis to get into the com munity," Davidson said, "bu we hope the organizations wil become multi-issue and will concern themselves with cops welfare, rats and rent." In a recent issue of the Guard ian, a radical left weekly news paper, Davidson summed up the goal. "It should be clear," he said, "that the aim of the resistance strategy is to transform itself into a class-conscious revolutionary socialist movement." Steve HalliweU, a graduate student at Columbia and one o SDS' eight-at-large national offi cers, insisted SDS has "no blue print" for the future. We want a free society/ [Haliwell said. "The shape o that society will be determined by men shaping their own lives But we know this—capitalism will have to go."

Biggest Target Arotmd Expensive Bridge By GEORGE MCARTHUU Associated Press Writer PMU CUONG, Vietnam (AP) — The bridge cast fline lives nd nine months' sweat. The American engineers built it to ast although evet-yone knows t's the biggest target for miles around. The site is on the main Viet Cong infiltration route to Saigon ust 18 miles to the south. To put a 1,000-foot concrete and steel bridge across the Saigon River at this point was ob- ;iously a gamble—but a gamble hat the U.S. Command figured would pay off in many ways. It is practically finished now ind the freckle-faced and sun- anned first lieutenant in charge, Bruce Adams, 24, East Bloomfield, N.Y., admits "If .his bridge is ever blown up, I'll be heartsick." To, protect his bridge, Adams Jed an infantry assault last February when the Viet Cong almost captured the South Vietnamese post commanding the northern anochor of the span His pickup platoon of about 25 men included cooks and anybody who could be hastily assembled.

"Engineers are fighters too," Murphy recalls, "but I'll tell you, 1 tiidn't thlflk 1 was g&tag o riiake it home for a while." Two engiiie&s were killed and ive wounded but the rest were back at work the next day. •We're sort of proud of that bridge," said S.Sgt, Richard Turoczy, Grafton, West Va,,, at 34 a relative old'timer. "These kids have learned to do every* thing." There are about 30,000 Army engineers in Vietnam. Their jobs are frequently unglamorous, so a big bridge is a welcome assignment. This one is the biggest permanent span built by Army engineers in Vietnam. Apart from the Viet Cong> the bridge was a technical challenge. There is no bedrock foundation in the ancient delta. More than six miles.of piling was put in and the bridge sort of floats on the mucky soil. TO cemplieate the job, delta ides shift as much as 10 feet ialfy and the temperature tops 00 most of the day.
