fight ers since the Korean war To deepen the embarrass ment the Communist MIGs shot down two of this countrys mod ern fighterbombers over North Viet Nam with models dating back to the Korean War period Gen J P McConncll Ait Force chief of staff was report ed irked over the incident As one source put it When they get ours and we dont gel theirs you know how he feels A report reaching here said

lacking The six attacking MIGs disappeared back into a haze from which they jumped the fighter bomb ers The MIGs bore North Viet namese markings and presuma bly were part of 30 such aircraft based at fields near Hanoi McConnell Gen Earle G Wheeler chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and others were in the Pentagon on Sunday reading the cable reports on the incident No official would speak out publicly but their discomfiture was evident from private re marks The Defense Department is sued an unusual Sunday state ment which played down the loss of the two 105s and other craft and emphasised results of US and South Vietnamese air strikes against three important bridges in North Viet Nam The Pentagon said the strikes inflicted serious damage by ruining the bridges which it called vital links in the North Vietnamese transportation sys tem supporting Communist guerrilla operations in South Viet Nam and Laos The vital importance of these bridges to the North Vietnamese was indicated by the heavy an tiaircraft defenses and by the fact that MIG interceptor air craft were employed for the first time it added The Pentagon statement un like official information given out in Saigon did not mention that the Thanh Hoa bridge had to be hit a second lime Sunday because it had been only slight ly damaged in an attack the day before There had been unconfirmed reports that US bombing accu

during the early morning scientists sent a sig nal turning on a tiny ion engine prototype of an electronicbeam device designed eventually for speeds up to 100000 miles an hour Success of the test was expect ed to be disclosed later by Gen Bernard Schriever head of the Air Force Systems Command The satellite launched Satur day cleared its first hurdle ear ly Sunday when a small nuclear reactor called SNAP10A achieved full power generating 580 watts of electricity The Atomic Eneegy Commis sion said it was the first time a nuclear reactor operated in or bit and called it a significant advance in this countrys space and atomic energy programs Plans called for electricity generated by the reactor and stored in a bank of batteries to start up the ion en gine for a onehour run In a tiny lank about the size of a lemon the engine carried enough fuel to operate for 300 hours It was expected to be shut down however after one hour test runs daily over the next three months In its 700milehigh

federal arm spending more than million a year But re ail prices of bread and other foods probably would be pushed up million or more a year The extra million in food costs would go toward increasing farm income In effect the changes would shift part of the cost of farm programs from the government to consumers Savings to the government would come from a major change in the wheat subsidy program and modifications in rice supports and a cropland re duction program all outlined in a farm bill sent to Congress Foods which would be expect ed to rise in price include bread bakery products flour other wheat products and rice Present government farm price and income stabilization programs cost more than bil lion a year The net farm in come last year was about 5126 billion Along with wheat the farm bill proposed a twoyear exten sion of the feed grains program and a fouryear extension of the wool stabilization program both with some changes a sharp modification in the rice sup port program a cropland retire ment system offering rental pay ments for land taken out of sur plus crops and authority for farmers to sell lease or other wise transfer acreage planting allotments The measure contained no recommendations for either the cotton program or for creation of an emergency food reserve both of which Johnson had men tioned in a special farm mes sage on Feb 4 Administration
