present Viet Nam conflict re vent a Korea in et By SEYMOUR M HER5H CHICAGO AP Gen Mark Clark who led the United Na tions forces in Korea said Wed nesday that the must continue to bomb North Viet Nam or face another Ko rea The country must realize Clark said that the way to win is to hit hard and use all our Air Force and naval aviation pow ers He added The great lesson 1 V learned in the Korean War was thatwe must not fight the Com munists in a manpower war Even itwe wanted to we wouldnt sacrifice our men the way theyre willing to sacrifice theirs he said I wasntwill ing to tradeone dead American for a thousand Chinese in Ko rea The general who was in Chi cago fora speaking engagement expressed his views in an exclu sive interview with The Asso ciated Press Although Clark emphasized he supports the actions of the John son administration thusfar he cautioned I hear indications that were reluctant to use sea or air pow er to their full extent I dont know if its true or not but if were willing to engage in a manpower war I just feel we cant win Many sources have been high ly critical of the air raids which the sources say have done little to improve the bargaining posi tion of the United States Told of those opinions Clark said emphatically Dont think they the Viet Cong wouldnt be in a much strongerposition if they werent being smacked I feel that these attacks are doing a lot of dam age to them and the more remu nerative targets1 we pick out the better off well be Here are some questions put to Gen Clark and his answers Q Is the United States doing the right thing by bombing North Viet Nam A When I was asked to sign the Korean armistice it was accompanied by a declaration that if there should be any fur ther aggression of its kind it would not be fought on a limited basis In other words pur hands were not going to be tied As I recall if aggression came we would not limit the war in any given area but would hit the enemy in places where he re served his power and the strength to attack us Ive had lots of experience with communism and I know they respect force and stop look and listen when they see it But when they find weakness they exploit it and despise it Q After the Korean War there was talk of the great con trol that Washington had over troop movement and attacks CLARK Please Turn to Page 2 GEN MARK CLARK Advocates bombing To p n ACCIDENT

pill Mosquitoes would avoid you like a plague By ALTON BLAKESLEE AP Science Writer NEW YORK AP Some summer you may swallow a harmless pill to make mos quitoes and other biting bugs avoid you like a plague The antibug pill hasnt ar rived yet But scientists are actively trying to find one with some hopes of success The pill would do something to your skin so a mosquito tick chigger or other pest would scram away You would remain as socially acceptable as ever to other people to dogs and cats and canaries This quest for an antibug drug and better usual ways of repelling insects were de scribed Wednesday lo the Amer ican Medical Association by a group of physicians and scien tists They are mainly interested in preventing bugs from passing diseases on to humans such as US soldiers serving in tropi cal lands but any progress benefit picnick ers bathers gardeners and summertime porch sitters Now we can envision a pill that would repel mosquitoes and other insects said Dr Jacques L Sherman of New York de scribing research begun in 1062 under the US Armys Research and Development Command Among major reasons for hope he and others said arc A pill is known that clears up fungus diseases like athletes foot by acting through the skin Some people naturally are more bugproof than others mosquitoes usually avoid them and scientists have some clues as to why this is so SAME DATE1W4M7 A fair amount of knowledge has been found as to what seems to attract or repel blood sucking insects how they are governed in choosing their tar gets A few bug repellents do a fair job of making a mosquito go elsewhere Detailed research is going on to find why these work and o turn up better ones One trouble with usual repellents is that they dont last long they rub off are oily or smelly or have other disadvantages A joint program of the Uni versity of California and Stan ford Research Institute has proved what many people gen erally have thought of us are pretty unattractive to mosquitoes said Dr Howard I Maibach of San Francisco Natural substances from poo pie that attract or repel bugs have been collected tested for their effect and are being chemically isolated he said
