The disorder began with a seemingly quiet demonstration near the residence of armed forces commander Lt. Gen. Nguyen Khanh. But as marines and police moved in to contain or disperse the demonstrators, some 300 broke through police lines and began rioting. A marine officer told the Associated Press he was certain the rioters were led by Vietcong agents. THEY WERE quickly joined by at least 1,000 youths and other demonstrators in several downtown streets, where they beat up passersby, photographers and police. At least a score of persons were believed to have been injured. Among those hurt was Associated Press photographer Huynh Cong La. But about noon, the riot appeared to be spreading to various parts of the city. Some youths had established a stronghold in the middle of Saigon marketplace, hooting and jeering at the bayonet-canylng marines who encircled them. OTHERS were running along main boulevards and appeared planning to make a riot headquarters of the main Buddhist compound in the city. There also was trouble in the city of Hue, 400 miles north of here, where student agitators also were at work. No violence was reported in Hue, but students were planning to begin a two-day hunger strike, accompanied by antigovernment demonstrations and agitation. The demonstrators in Saigon rallied to protest the trial of four student agitators charged with inciting riots in November. THE military trial was postponed a few minutes before it was scheduled to have started. It was reported that the minister of education was trying to get the trial cancelled and have the students freed. Inauguration Of Goddard Today SAMUEL P.

The demonstration followed a day of speechmaking at Saigon's Buddhist headquarters camp. Yesterday monks exhorted a crowd of about 2,000 to continue the campaign to brmg down the Huong government. Police and marines blocked off a five-block area to vehicular traffic to keep demonstrators away from the waterfront mili-j tary compound where the trial of the students was to have taken place. The compound is next to the residence of Lt. Gen. Khanh. The swelling ranks of demonstrators hoisted banners demanding the release of the students, and fastened slogans to the coils of barbed wire blocking their way. Several additional truckloads of marines and fire trucks with high pressure hoses were brought up. ROUGHLY one battalion, 500 men, of marines^ was detailed to riot control. Behind barricades thrown up (Continued on Page 2, Col. 5) Military in Bolivia Stop Gnip Attempt LA PAZ, Bolivia (UPI) - The ruling military junta announced the army smashed a plot yesterday by supporters of ousted President Victor Paz Estenssoro to overthrow the government. It said the plot's leaders were arrested and there was no violence. Gen. Oscar Quiroga Teran, the interior minister, said the civilian federal police had planned a simultaneous uprising in all major towns and cities of Bolivia but that the anay learned of the plot and struck at dawn. INFORMED sources said more than 100 persons had been jailed. Troops poured into La Paz from outlying barracks and all traffic was forbidden. The ruling junta said calm prevailed in the entire country and that there had been no armed encounters. Quiroga said the plot was discovered and frustrated through the interception of coded messages being smuggled into La Paz from other towns by women couriers. He called a news conference to display evidence of the plot. THE PAZ Estenssoro government was overthrown last Nov. 4 by a military coup and the president fled the country. He now lives in exile in Lima, Peru. The coup was led by Gen. Alfredo Obando Candia, commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and Gen. Rene Barrien-tos Ortuno, chief of staff of the air force. They were sworn in Nov. 5,1964, as copresidents but a few hours later Barrientos announced that Obando had resigned. BARRIENTOS was on tour at Tupiza, 250 miles from the capital, when he was informed of the plot. It was understood he would cut short his tour to return to La Paz. Although the interior minister reported the situation calm, he said military forces were carrying out mopping up operations after arresting leaders of the (Continued on Page 14, Col. 2) Storm-Hit Cruise Ship Makes Port NEW YORK (AP) - The American liner Independence arrived yesterday after battling through a violent North Atlantic storm which brought it to a standstill off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland for 40 hours. Sixteen persons were injured amid some terrifying incidents. The tempest slammed the big 26,000-ton passenger ship with 60-foot waves which smashed windows on upper decks and ripped open a weather door on a lower deck. PASSENGERS were flung about like tenpins at times as the liner wallowed in the mountainous waves. Many were gripped by seasickness. Some became apprehensive and took to napping fully-clothed in the public lounge after hearing of an incident in which a gigantic wave smashed a window of an upper deck cabin and hurled a half ton of icy water upon a couple asleep, Capt, Charles Reilly, skipper of the Independence, described the rough water as the worst he had encountered in more than 40 years at sea. "The waves rose to a height of 60 feet and spilled over the bridge deck," he related. "It was like riding a roller coaster." THE LINER was returning from a 22-day Mediterranean cruise with 807 passengers.

Mexican Red Cross officials said at least 55 persons were killed and 63 injured. "It happened so fast nobody had a chance to run," said one of the survivors, Alfcmsc Escamilla, 15. Escamilla said about 300 persms were in the church at Rijo, in an isolated area about 80 miles southeast of Mexico aty, for the 9 a.m. Mass when the tragedy occurred. "I heard a noise and looked up and saw the center part the roof coming down," Escamilla said. "I was near a door but I didn't have time to get out." Officials said a preliminary InvestigatiiMi pointed to defective cmstrscfiMt as flie cause of the tragedy. Amt�g those killed was 4be priest officiating at the mass, Father Ezequiel Ollvares, whose brother, a mason, was said to be the designer and builder of the church. Police said they were seeking the mason for interrogation. RUO IS A village of 5,000 inhabitants, mostly workers of the nearby Atencingo sugar mill. The church, of brick, mortar and concrete construction, was being used formally for the first time yesterday and the Mass was to dedicate the building. The interior structural supports of the church's aisle had been removed by construction crews Saturday. Those who survived joined other townspeople in forming rescue crews to dig through the rubble in search of dead and injured. Five tractors plowed away the heavy debris. Help from outside was hours in arriving because of Rijo's remoteness from any large towns and its lack of telephone communication. Red Cross units from three towns moved into Rijo and took the injured to neighboring hospitals. Red Cross officials in Puebla said those who escaped uninjured were seated at tiie back of the church where (he roof had not been completed. Reapportionment Methods Legislature Has Many Suggestions to Consider Second of Series By BEN AVERY WHAT WILL Arizona's 27th Legislature do about reapor-tionment when it convenes a week from today? Legislators themselves are asking this question along with many citizens, but suggestions have come from three groups. The Legislative Council, in response to a legislative resolution, has prepared a series of alternative suggestions for reapporticNung congressi(mal districts. A blue-ribbon conunittee appointed by Gov. Fannin has proposed some alternatives on legislative apportionment. And the Council of State Governments at a meeting in Chicago last month urged amendment of the federal Constitution to avoid reapportioning both houses. THE Legislature will be facing a mandate to act from a three-judge federal court, as results of a lawsuit challenging constitutionality of the pres�it apportionment. However it has until 30 days after adjournment ci tia regular sessiim, enou^ time for one 2May special session, to comply with that mandate. The Arizona Legislature may ignore the mandate. This would force the court either to order all 108 legislators and the three congressmen to run at large in 1966, or to set up a special master to redistrict the state. OR THE legislators may face up to the court's mandate and enact laws to provide for redistricting. It may amend the present constitutional apportionment clause, or it may let that clause go by the board as being in violation of A'^cle 14 of the U. S. Constitution. The members of the House (ContiniKd eak to a heavily Democratic House and Senate at 9 p.m. today in the first evening state of the union address since FrankUn D. Roosevelt spoke at the identical hour 20 years ago. (Ihe President's speech may be seen on television in Phoenix at 7 p.m. on Channels 3, 10 and 12.) Johnson is expected to place a strong emphasis on educaticxi programs in outlining his "great society" proposals to Congress on the opening day of the 89th session. The contents of Johnson's speech have been closely guarded. THE CmEF executive, however, is expected to ask early approval of programs approved by either the Senate or House along during the last session. These would include the Appalachian recovery measure for aid to distressed Eastern states; hospital care for the aged under Social Security, and continuation of the Area Redevelopment Administration. The President was said to be unwilling to move too quickly and donand too much from Coa^ gtess too soon.
