U i'AGKS 10 CENTS Mine Sinks Ship SAIGON' -A Viet Cone mine today sank a U.S. Navy freighter southeast of Saigon, closing one ol the two supply channels from the major port to the sea. Seven Americans were missing and presumed deaJ. An eighth was injured. The blast ripped into the port side engine room of the Military Sea Transport Service (MSTS) vessel Baton Rouge Victory in the muddy Long Tao River 22 miles from Saigon. The ship, owned by Hie government and leased to the States Steamship Co. of Balti- more, MJ., had a crow of 49 Americans. A stoppage of vital channel traffic lias been the aim of two years of Communist harass- ment of waterways from Saigon to the sea. Five such attacks have occurred since the end of 1905. The crew of the Baton Rougu Victory grounded the ship, which sank up to its main decks, to avoid completely blocking the channel. 11 was carrying a "general U.S. spokesmen said. Saigon officials said earlier that seven crewmen had been killed but their bodies were not found near the ship. Other vessels on UK river reported later they were fired on by Viet Cong units along the banks of the Long Tao before the Baton Rouge victory was sunk. The channel was closed to all but emergency traffic. Spokes- men said no further "regular" traffic would be moved on the Long Tao until the grounded ship was raised and moved.

Nixon Sets Report on Viet Nam WASHINGTON (UPI) For- mcr Vice President Richard M. Nixon, who was a Viet Nam "hawk" a decade before the term was coined, reports to fellow Republicans in congress today on his latest trip to that Asian battleground. Chances were he would reiterate the stand he took Monday night in New York when he called for a buildup of military efforts in Viet Nam to avoid World War III. "The longer the war con- tinues in South Viet Nam, the greater the chance of escala- tion to World War said Nixon in an address at the national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars "The war in South Viet Nam is not about Viet Nam. The war is about Southeast out the Pacific, about World War in. "If lost, Asia will lose hope, communism will sweep over free Asia in 5 or 10 years and we will confront World War said the former vice president who first advanced his "hawk" view on the Viet Nam problem in 1954.
