"« Main Mission The main mission oMhe U.S. — South Vietnamese move-into Cambodia through the Fishhook 105 miles east of the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh- was to destroy the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese supply bases and headquarters in the area, a sanctuary for many years. —l.The estimated 12,000-man force has pushed more than 25 miles north to a point he* yond the town of Snuol, scene of the major action of the operation Tuesday. Most of the structures of "The City" are in pairs, with one hut about 12 feet high at the center and with a palm- thatched roof sloping to six feet at the open sides. They are about 15 feet by 30 feet in size. Nearby is a slightly smaller structure dug out to a depth of six feet and standing the same height above ground. In both types of hut are crates of brand new Russian and Chinese rifles and machine- guns. There are also British, American and other weapons. -The huts also contained medical equipment, field glasses and many other types of as-" sorted mili^ry supplies. Send Flotilla Meanwhile, the South Vietnam Foreign Ministry announced it will send a flotilla up the Mekong River to the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh. Foreign Minister Tran Van Lam told reporters the operation is a relief effort and will carry medicine and supplies to Vietnamese residents of Cambodia. He said that the boats will-return any Vietnamese who want to leave and the movement will have "the co-operation of Cambodian troops." The U.S, Command refused to confirm or ,deny reports' from official sources that American boats would join the flotilla. "If there is American participation, we will announce it at the appropriate time," -a command spokesman said. The flotilla will coyer 60 miles of river to reach Phnom Penh. \ Other sources described the relief effort as a military river- opening operation. They pointed out that the stretch of Uie Mekong River from the border to Phnom Penh has been closed to commercial traffic since two Japanese ships were fjred on several weeks ago. V North Vietnamese troops hold the ferry crossing Neak Luong, 37 miles southeast of Phnom Penh. It was captured Sunday and Cambodian troops have been trying to retake it. They moved to within six miles of it Thursday.

Estimates ranged up to 50 per cent. Mid-way through the down- t o w n business district, the marchers sat down on the streets and. sidewalks for several minutes of speeches. "This is about people being murdered — in Vietnam, Cambodia and here," said Tony Og"den of Cedar Falls, former state Vietnam War Moratorium chairman.
