Command hit Viet Cong po sitions only 17 miles from North Viet Nam today a US military spokesman announced Vietnamese government troops followed up the raid with one of the largest offensives ever staged by the 1st Army Corps US spokesmen said Military sources said 14 Viet Cong were killed in the initial phase of the operation They said government casualties were light There was no immediate re

Marine Corps personnel The extensions were ordered in a telegram sent Friday night by Secretary of the Navy Paul H Nitze to all major Navy and Marine Corps commands The Pentagon confirmed the order early today after news of it be gan to leak out at some of the commands that had been noti fied The extension follows by less than a month the Navys deci sion to draft men for the first time in nearly 10 years Navy enlistments have been lagging and an appeal by Nitze for voluntary extension of tours drew a disappointing response The extension order affects neither reservists on active duty nor those who already have vol unteered to extend their enlist ments It goes into effect Aug 20 for Marine Corps enlisted men and Sept 15 for Navy en listments The number of men affected was not known immediately It was learned that Nitze signed the order shortly after 6 pm Friday night The Navys personnel needs stem from several causes For one a general buildup triggered by the Viet Nam con flict is bringing more ships into the service More men are need ed for such support craft as am phibious ships and to fill out ship crews which are currently under strength In addition shore stations that contribute directly to the support of the Viet Nam war need men On July 28 defense officials announced that for the first time since early 1956 the Navy would draw on selective service for manpower An announce ment 10 days ago said that the Navy would get 4600 men from the October draft call of 33600 North Iowa Weather outlook Pair south and partly cloudy Saturday Spread Guard forces Guardsmen kill
