He stressed a double theme of progress at home and of independence and standing in the world as he wished his fellow citizens a happy new year over radio and television. It was a very confident president who was heard in millions . -of French homes brushing aside get them." the "nostalgia, bitterness and: THE FOUR new graves were demagogy" of those who tried found next to the wreckage of to throw doubt upon the progress a helicopter that burst into of the country and its individual fame and exploded at treetop Graves Bait Viet Ambush SAIGON (AP) - Fresh graves believed to contain the bodies of four U.S. Army helicoper crewmen were the lure for a Vietcong ambush near Binh Gia this New Year's Eve. Red guerrillas still clinging to jungles about that Roman Catholic refugee town shot up a detachment of 100 Vietnamese marines as they dug into the graves to check the identity of the dead. Vietnamese losses were believed to be extremely heavy and a U.S. Marine captain with the detachment was wounded. The marines withdrew, taking the wounded with them. They were reported planning a definitive check with a greater force later. "The Vietcong have done this before, used graves of Americans as bait," a U. S. adviser said. "They know we have to citizens. He announced for 1965 further national prosperity "unless there are grave upsets at home or elsewhere." He also appeared a very determined man as he issued a call to work and to battle. Life is a battle, he said, "for a nation as for a man." The president cited "the pressure of American economic power" being felt in France as one of the reasons why the French needed "to produce more and better, save and invest constantly and more, and push relentlessly our scientific and technical reserach." He said otherwise the country threatened to sink into "bitter mediocrity and to be colonized by foreign participation, inventions and capabilities." HE DECLARED the country sought to dominate nobody but "intends to be its own master." He said that in the political, economic, financial and defense fields, France rejected any system that "under the cover of supranationality, or integration, or of Atlantism would keep us in fact under tha hegemony that we know." Again the reference to the United States was clear. It was a way of explaining why, for example, France rejected the U. S. proposal for an Allied nuclear force although he made no direct reference to this. De Gaulle declared, however, that "we arc completely disposed to friendly cooperation with each of our Allies." Earlier in the day at a reception for correspondents accredited to the Elysee Palace, he said that the Atlantic Alliance must continue but that its form must change. He indicated that level Wednesday night as it was covering marines collecting the bodies of troops killed in the assaults that recovered Binh Gia, 40 miles east of Saigon, from the Vietcong. The four men, officially listed by the Pentagon as missing, were identified as WO Stephen E. Morgan of San Jose, Calif., bat in Vietnam in the last three years. In addition, 23 U.S. servicemen previously had been listed as missing in action. Fourteen of these and four American civilians definitely are considered captives of the Vietcong. Two of the missing servicemen were seized by the Red guerillas in the fight for Binh Gia, which cost government forces nearly 300 casualties. Nine Americans were wounded. TENSIONS OF war and politics were reflected in Saigon celebrations of the advent of the new year. The capital's curfew was lifted for the night, but security forces were on watch against a coup or terrorism. Some intelligence sources said WO Roy G.
