An- other 16 bodies were found after an air attack. Soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division killed six more guerril- las in a 20-minute gun battle when the Reds tried to protect a large tunnel containing 15 bales of cotton and six tons of rice. While U.

Faubus defeated Rockefeller Nov. 3, 1964, in a bitterly fought general election contest. Rockefeller noted in a six- page statement issued when he filed he got 44 per cent of the vole in that election.

Equally frustrating was an eight-day search for guerrillas by the U.

This time the Communists hurriedly pulled out, abandon- ing four rest camps capable of accommodating guerrillas. The cavalrymen destroyed the camps. The operation netted eight Communists captured. Some of the captives were identified as members of the 32nd and 66th North Vietnamese regular regi- ments. There also were reports that an antiaircraft battalion with 18 Chinese machine guns had been in the area. As the Americans crashed into one campsite, they saw squad of armed men in a patch quilt of khaki and black uni- forms flee across the Tongle San River, the border with Cambodia 40 miles west of Plei- ku.

RYAN AP Special Correspondent The Russians have been cook- ing up a spicy diplomatic pud- ding. It bubbles with possibili- ties, but the proof of that pud- ding is still to come. Aggressive Kremlin diploma- cy, seems centered on removing threat.1; to peace on the Soviet doorstep in Asia. Success or failure may de- pend upon establishing domi- nant influence in North Viet Nam. If H current Soviet, mis- sion to Hanoi ihould be re- buffed, there would be little hope of anything but continued war in Indochina and tense So- viet-American relations at the moment may not be in the na- tional interests of either great power. A look at recent Soviet activi- ty suggests an atmosphere of urgency on the part of the So- viet party and government chiefs, as if they might be lay- ing their own leadership on the line. From more than just propa- ganda standpoint. Premier i Alexei N. Kosygin scored a coup at Tashkent, where he persuad ed the Indians and Pakistanis at least to talk about peaceful rela- tions. President Johnson wel- comed the result, but it is like- ly to enrage the Red Chinese. The Russians have battered their way into the Viet Nam sit- uation with a high-powered del- egation whose aim, many quali- fied observers agree, is to out- bid Peking for the loyally of the Hanoi regime. The Russians have sent a first team, headed by parly chief I, Brculinev. in Mongo- lia.
