COl^lER NEWS PAGE FIVE Vietminh Forces Strike Far Below Cease-Fire Line By JOHN RODERICK SAIGON, Indochina (AP) — Vietminh forces stabbed southward in Viet Nam over the weekend, striking far below the dividing line set in the imminent cease-fire. A French high command spokesman said the rebel attack in the South began Saturday. He said the Vietminh struck at Nha Trang, on the China Sea coast. Rebel commandos sabotaged several bridges in Nha Trang after Vietminh artillery had bombarded the coastal town's defenses, Pressure Elsewhere The rebels also attacked French Commodity And Stock Markets- N«w York Cotton (12:90 quotations) Oct 3429 3443 3429 3440 Dec 3445 3468 3445 3461 Mch 3464 3493 3464 3486 May 3471 3496 3471 3490 Naw Orleans Cotton Oct 3429 3448 3429 3437 Dec 3445 3463 3445 3460 Mch 3466 3492 3466 3484 May 3472 3499 3472 3493 Chicago Soybeans Sept ... 313y 4 31Sy 4 307 313y 4 Nov ... 289 289y 8 288 289% Jan ... 293y 8 293% 291 293% Mch ... 295 295% 294 295% Chicago Wheat Sept ... 211 213 211 211% Dec ... 214 218% 214 215V 8 Chicago Corn Sept ... 160y 8 166y 2 16(T/e I 64 Dec ... 154 160% 153 & 158% New York Stocks (12:45 quotation*i A T and T Amer Tobacco Anaconda Copper Beth Steel Chrysler Coca-Cola Gen Electric , Gen Motors Montgomery Ward N Y Central Int Harvester , Republic Steel , Radio — Socony Vacuum , Studebaker Standard of N J Texas Corp Sears TJ S Steel , Sou Pac , 174 7-8 58 7-8 38 7-8 74 1-4 63 1-8 116 44 3-8 79 7-8 79 7-8 22 1-2 32 1-4 61 1-2 34 1-2 42 7-8 18 3-8 86 5-8 70 1-2 65 3-4 54 3-8 43 3-4 Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, HI.

PLANE (Continued from Page 1) there were no casualties on the American side, and emphasized that the Red planes made their attack "over the high seas," It said: "The United States plans to protest most vigorously "against this further evidence of Chinese Communist brutality and their belligerent interference with a humanitarian rescue operation being conducted over the high seas." The American fighters were from the two United States aircraft carriers ordered into the area Saturday to "protect further rescue and search operations" launched after Chinese Communist fighters shot down a British Cathay Pacific airliner on a flight from Bangkok to Hong Kong. The Communist radio announced today that the Peiping government was Apologizing to British for the attack on the airliner. It said the Red pilots thought the plane was Chinese Nationalist. Thailand Next—ftfiet MCCHORD AIR FROCE BASE, Wash, (/P)—President Syngman Rhee of South Korea predicted last night that Thailand "will be the next victim" of Communist ag- ression. The Korena President en route to an official visit with President Eisenhower, described as "an unfortunate thing" the manner in which tht Indochina action WAS settled. and Vietnamese positions at Qui Nhon, 100 miles north of Nha Trang, and struck at Tuy Hoa, midway between tiie two towns. Other Vietminh forces brought pressure on Cheo Reo, a post 60 miles southwest of Qui Nhon on central Viet Nam's plateau. Gen. Paul Ely, French commander in chief in Indochina, warned the rebels to stop or face mass air retaliation. The stepup of fighting in the South, just as the cease-fire is about to go into effect, appeared base on a Vietminh desire to show Their strength to communities which will not be under their control. Peiping radio has broadcast statements by both Ho and Vietminh Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap to the effect that South Viet Nam was only temporarily in French hands, regardless of the cease-fire. Ho was quoted as saying, "The demarcation line does not mean the political and territorial border line. North, central and south Viet Nam are inseparable parts of our nation's territory. We assure the people of each region, that they will be liberated." Evacuation Begun Jacques Compain, French civilian director general in North Viet Nam, said he hoped to fly out 300 French civilians and 500 Vietnamese Wednesday. By mid-August, he expects the operation to hit high gear with about 1,000 flying out daily and another 4,000 a day going by ship from Haiphong, 65 miles east of Hanoi, to Saigon, 700 miles southward. Evacuation of the Hanoi area must be completed within 80 days after the July 27 cease-fire. Military units can remain in Haip- hong up to 300 days. Th cease-fire will be supervised by a three-nation commission — Indian, Communist Poland and Canada. India has accepted chairmanship of the commission. Peip- ing radio announced last night Poland also had agreed to serve on the group. As the day of evacuation approached, both sides stepped up their propaganda battle for more than a million Roman Catholics living in the North. There were claims and denials that Red sympathizers already are persecuting Catholics in Red River delta recently abandoned to the rebels. The Vietnamese hope to persuade Catholics in the delta to migrate south, where they presumably would furnish a solid bloc of votes in future elections provided by the cease-fire. 7,000 Said Dead in Flood NEW DELHI, India (fl>)—Reports from the India-Tibet' border say more than 1,000 persons died in the floods which swept the Tibetan trade center of Gyantse last week.

"'While carrying out patrol duty over Port Yulin of Hainan Island," the broadcast said, the fighters spotted the airliner '"'and fighting took place."

The talkfest was interrupted over Sunday, but indications were it would resume today. Knowland said he and the other leaders gave Eisenhower a complete report on the legislative situation and added: "The President fully concurs in a decision of the legislative leadership—both Republicans and Democrats—that the filibuster must not be allowed to block the legislative program, even if it requires that Congress continue in session several additional weeks to do it. There will be no surrender on this issue." Knowland's statement still left unanswered some other questions: Morvel Man To Head State American Legion LITTLE ROCK WV-Abe J. Davidson of Marvell. Ark., was named state commander of the Arkansas American Legion yesterday when his only opponent. Waiter H. Scbrader of Hot Springs, Ark., withdrew his name from the race. In other action at the closing session of the state convention, the Legionnaires voted to table a resolution censuring the investigating tactics of Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis). The resolution "condemned and vigorously opposed all forms of totalitarian dictatorship, whether displayed in communism or in investigating procedure." A Legion spokesman said the convention decided to table the motion, which mentioned McCarthy by name, because it felt "singling out McCarthy for criticism was un-American." Other new officers include L. A. Elliott of Batesville, Ark., and Joe C. Carroll of Shoemaker, Ark., vice commanders, and Ray Bebout of Newport, Ark., chaplain. SAVINGS!
