RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sunday, July 18, 1965 An AP News Analysis U.S. Appears Slipping into Asian Ground War (Continued from Page lA) and possible mobilization of some national guardsmen and reservists. Sec. of Defense Robert S, McNamara's mission to Viet Nam almost certainly will result in a boost in the 75,000 American servicemen now in Viet Nam or due there soon. Total U.S. troop commitment could double before the end of the year. Nobody \vi hazard a guess as to how big the involvement will become, although there have been estimates that as many as 300,000 U .S. fighting men will be needed to prevent loss of South Viet Nam to the Communists. Different Type This would put the Viet Nam War at about the level of the Korean War of the 1950s when a peak of 275,000 American soldiers and Marines and 47,000 airmen fought the North Koreans and Red Chinese. But this would be an entirely different kind of war. In Korea, there was a front and the enemy was met in conventional battle formation. It was possible to bring massed artillery to bear. The terrain was much different— chiefly open country which exposed the Communist enemy to U.S. air power. Further, supply lines to the front ran through secure areas, except during times when U.S. forces were broken up and thrown into retreat by overwhelming enemy waves. No Front In Viet Nam, there is no front. The war has been likened to a cancer running through the entire country. it is a mass of relatively small actions in which the enemy takes advantage of jungle cover to hit where he has local superiority in numbers, then fades back into the jungle. U.S. airpower reportedly has caused the Viet Cong morale problems. But even the heavy weight of B52 intercontinental bombers dropping hundreds of tons of high explosives hasn't brought any appreciable change. Roads Cut Soldiers and arms continue to infiltrate from North Viet Nam, despite heavy and al­ most daily air attacks on their routes. The Communists have' cut Viet Nam's roads and its single rail line so that the only way the South Vietnamese can move is by heavily protected—and often ambushed —convoys. While confident of the fighting quality, training and equipment of U.S. soldiers and marines, U.S. military professionals have developed a deep respect for the tenacity and military competence of the enemy. Just a year ago the prevailing view here was that it would be unwise to put U.S. ground combat forces alongside the South Vietnamese. The general view in the Pentagon and elsewhere was that the United States should lead from strength, which at the time was thought to lay in airpower. Move In Deeper Since then, the inability of the South Vietnamese to turn the tide even with massive U.S. supplies, advice and other support has forced the United States to move deeper into the war. There has been concern that an outright U.S. takeover of the major ground combat role might provoke the Red Chinese, with their millions, to enter openly into the Southeast Asian War. One Army staff study has concluded that it would take about 150,000 men to hold a line running along the 17th Parallel boundary between North Viet Nam and South Viet Nam, and across.the Laotian panhandle to the Mekong River. This would not account for the t h 0 u sa n d s of troops needed to deal with the Viet Cong inside South Viet Nam, to the rear of that line. The United States is building a number of enclaves along the South China Sea— bases with their backs to the sea where the mighty 7th Fleet reigns undisputed. These enclaves will be the points from which offensive operations will be launched around the country in an ef- for to prod the Communists on the run and eventually to bloody them so badly that they will give up. U.S. military men feel the United States may have to brace for a long and costly campaign entailing heavy casualties. But the political decision to win appears to have been made, even if it means a heavy outpouring of U.S. manpower and resources, and the military men are prepared to try to carry it out.

Converge on Pass As many as 5,000 Vietnamese troops were reported converging on the pass, 240 miles northeast of Saigon, which the B52s hit. It is a bottleneck for traffic between the port of Qui Nhon and Pleiku, an inland"center of resistance to Viet Cong efforts to take over the highlands. The raid was the fourth staged in a month by the B52s from their base on Guam. The three earlier strikes were saturation bombs of suspected Viet Cong holdings 25 to 35 miles north of Saigon. In Saigon, the U. S. Mili- t a r y Assistance Command MAC supported, in c o n- ference with Defense Sec. Robert S. McNamara, a recommendation of Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's military government for an increase in American forces in Viet Nam. A U. S. Marine unit came under mortar and machinegun fire during an operation to clear an area southwest of the Da Nang Air Base, 380 miles northeast of Saigon. The Marines suffered light casualties. Viet Cong losses, if any, were not determined. Air operations within South Viet Nam included a bombing and strafing attack by four U. S. Air Force FIDOs on guerrilla encampment near Cholon, the big Chinese enclave that makes up part of the capital. The official description of the site was "15 miles southwest of Saigon airport." A forward air controller reported 30 buildings and 10 guns were destroyed.

It shows some smudges and surface markings. Details are not quite as sharp as in the two later photos, because it was taken from an altitude of 10,500 miles, at the start of Mariner 4's 25-minute north- to-south camera run last Wednesday night. The first three pictures presumably could have shown evidence of life on Mars — had the evidence been in the form of objects two or more miles across. Few Surface Markings They showed very few surface markings, and none of these seemed to indicate life. This strengthened belief that Mariner's shots are not likely t e 11 i g e n t beings on that planet. Leighton, a California Institute of Technology physicist, said none of the dark areas which some scientists have believed to be vegetation will show up before frames seven and eight, which are not due to be released for weeks. Sixth Picture As he spoke. Mariner 4 was transmitting its sixth picture. Transmission of the pictures, coming in at a rate of one every 10 hours, is expected to Mariner project scientist R. K. Sloan said earth telescopes looking at Mars when Mariner flew past reported very little haze. He said the spacecraft apparently has excellent photographic conditions; Dr. Bruce Murray, Caltech planetary scientist, said he doubted that any of the smudges or markings were caused by haze or clouds in the Martian atmosphere. "These may be something in the spacecraft's television or transmission systems," he said. Pickering said that despite the lack of evidence in the first three photographs he was still confident that unmanned landings planned in the 1970s would find some continue through this week.| simple form of life on Mars.

Fourteen skyhawks and two crusaders from the Carried Independence made the Ben Thuy strike. The spokesman said there were direct hits, but heavy smoke prevented a more complete assessment. The railroad facilities of Yen Bai, 75 miles northwest of Hanoi, were attacked again, this time by four U. S. Air Force F 105 Crusaders. The spokesman said three large buildings were destroyed.

Stephens, who was elected mayor in the last election in 1932 and who since has continued in that office, said the citizens "just didn't want to| Ivote." He said the town's popula-|S tion of 124 persons was supposed to choose five village trustees today. There were no candidates so the voters were supposed to write-in theiri choices and the five with the most votes would win. "But, most of the people were not interested," said the Viet Nam.

George H. Benson, City Cleric , ^ (Continued from Page lA) apprehension over the possibility of the racial flame in Bogalusa flaring into other communities. Jackson G. Ricau, president of the South Louisiana Citizens Council, wrote the governor that James Farmer, national director of the Congress of Racial Equality, "is a known troublemaker." Farmer's appearance here about a week ago launched a series of demonstrations. Ricau called on the governor "to keep James Farmer and other outside agitators out of the state of Louisiana." PICKETS MARCH AT SITE OF VIOLENCE GREENSBORO, Ala. —(JP) —Civil rights demonstrators picketed the Greensboro business district Saturday less than 24 hours after the town's first racial violence left 17 Negroes injured. The demonstrations were confined to picketing Main Street businesses rather than the Hale County courthouse where tempers flared Friday. The leader of the local civil rights movement, the Rev. A. T. Days of the St. Matthew A.M.E. Church, called a halt to the picketing in the early afternoon and said further demonstrations would be held Monday "if we don't get a favorable reply from the merchants." The demonstra- tiors claim white merchants refuse to hire Negroes. 5 -MILE N.Y. MARCH PROVES UNEVENTFUL NEW YORK— i/P) —More than 100 singing, chanting demonstrators marched five uneventful miles through New York's sticky heat Saturday to protest Thursday's fatal shooting of a Negro ex- convict by a white patrolman; The Congress of Racial Equality staged the march to dramatize renewed demands for a civilian police review board, but very few of the spectators along the way seemed to know or care what it was all about. The parade began under hazy skies and heavy police guard in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a mostly Negro Brooklyn neighborhood. It crossed the Brooklyn Bridge and ended at Manhattan police headquarters two- and-a-half hours later amid light rain and about 50 white counter-pickets from the U.S. Nationalist Party. The protest was triggered by Thursday's killing of 28- year-old Nelson Erby by patrolman Sheldon Leibowitz at an intersection near Brooklyn CORE headquarters. There are several versions of the'incident, in which Leibowitz was shot in the arm. Police say Erby came at the patrolman with a knife, tooK his gun away, shot the officer, and was killed during an ensuing fight in which the policeman regained his weapon. A spokesman for CORE has said Erby was an eccentric and was kneeling in the street praying for rain when shot. The spokesman said Liebowitz accidentally shot himself while trying to arrest Erby, and then killed the Negro man. TRAFFIC SOLUTION? MITCHELL, S.
