VOL 105 242 me ommies 30000 Relief for US cavalry New battle rages in valley By ROBERT MOOREFIELD SAIGON Viet Nam AP Easing the burden of US cav alrymen South Vietnamese paratroopers battled North Viet namese regulars in the la Drang Valley Saturday and re ports from the field said they killed up to 220 Communists A spokesman said the fight raged for nearly four hours at the western edge of the valley near the Cambodian frontier Contact was broken atdusk Losses among the government troops freshly committed were described as light A figure of 180 Communist dead was cited in one report 220 in another during this ac tion one phase of a bloody sixday battle waged previously between the Hanoi troops and elements of the US 1st Air Cavalry Division B52 jets from Guam renewed their blasting at North Vietnam ese positions staging two satu ration bombings in the area be tween the cavalrymen and their government allies US cavalry battalions and the Vietnamese paratroopers were on independent sweeping operations The spokesman re ported the Americans ran into light sniper fire Buildup by Hanoi gains momentum SAIGON South Viet Nam AP North Viet Nam swiftly snatched up the gauntlet thrown down when the United States began its massive buildup in South Viet Nam Hanoi has de termined to reply in kind What began as a trickle of infiltration from the north may reach flood proportions in the coming months as tens of thou sands of North Vietnamese reg ulars pour down the Ho Chi Minh trail High American circles believe Hanoi is preparing four and pos sibly six divisions tos be thrown into the swiftly escalat ing conflict within the next six months Washington indicate that such intelligence already has dictated the decision to send 40000 more US fighting men to reinforce the 160000 here The prospects are clearly for a string of massive engage ments probably far heavier than anything yet seen in this coun try There is deep concern in some quarters that the reported deci sion by Hanoi to enter a show down fight may draw Commu nist China into the conflict Hatrict Merger proposal is killed A proposed merger of Dough erty District 1 with the Rock wellSwaledale school district was disapproved Thursday by the State Board of Public In struction M C Martin Cerro Gordo County superintendent of schools received word Friday Although no official notifica tion of the disapproval has been made Martin received confir mation of the boards action from David J Gilliland reor ganization consultant for the State Department of Public In struction Martin said Friday he would wait until receiving written no tice of the boards action before suggesting the next step in merging Dougherty 1 with an other school district If no action is taken to merge Dougherty 1 with another schoo district by April 1 the Cerro Gordo County Board of Educa tion will be required to assign i to a high school district Martin stated In all probability Doughertj 1 would be assigned to eithe the RockwellSwaledale schoo district or Sheffield Chapin Martin said Since approval of the State Board of Public Instruction is required in making all assign ments the Cerro Gordo County board could not assign the entire district to RockwellSwaledale without concurrence of the state board If any merger is proposed the proposal would have to include the entire school district Por tions of the Dougherty 1 district could be assigned by the coun ty board to each of the Rock wellSwaledale and Sheffield Chapin districtsbut this could not be done by a merger pro posal Martin added Voters in the Dougherty 1 dis trict petitioned last July for an election to decide whether to merge their district with the RockwellSwaledale district The election proposal was then ap proved by the Cerro Gordo County Board of Education The proposed merger of Dougherty 1 with Rockwell Swaledale had been appealed to the state board by the Franklin County Board of Education Franklin County officials based their appeal on the fact that the merger would be dif ferent from the assignment of territory agreed to in a multi county plan in 1958 The original county plan called for the southern four square miles of Dougherty l to be at tached to the SheffieldChapin district with another two square miles to go with Rockwell Swaledale The town of Dough erty is part of what was origin ally recommended for inclusion into the SheffieldChapin dis trict In its appeal the Franklin County board pointed out that the merger would mean a loss of revenue to the Sheffield Chapin board which now serves pupils from

and iron bombs re main the tools for land battles noi could be forced to call on China for help despite the well known Vietnamese aversion to Chinese of any political stripe If China does enter the war it almost certainly would mean the launching of US air attacks on the Chinese mainland and could raise the possibility of a nuclear war The now count more than 200000 men in South Viet Nam including North Viet namese regulars and hard core Viet Cong guerrilla units American circles believe the monthlong battling near Plei Me and the fighting close to the Cambodian border 210 miles north

strategic key to the control of the south and be cause the country is so vast and wild that heavily equipped American units may be handi capped They stressed also that the Sheffield Chapin board has

back down on price raises NEW YORK AP The copper industry has rolled back its price increase following a government decision to sell 200 000 tons of copper from its stockpile Anaconda Co and Phelps Dodge Corp two of the na tions largest producers re scinded price increases of two cents a pound on Monday Another major producer Ken necott Copper Corp did not raise its prices A copper industry spokesman said that the copper price roll back could not be compared to that of aluminum last week In the case of aluminum he in the south and air attacks for striking the north Because the matter is so polit ically and militarily sensitive administration officials decline to discuss it But there clearly has been no shift from the offi cially stated view that nuclear weapons do not figure in current strategy There are two basic reasons for this policy 1 An explosion in the world of delicately balanced internation al relations could outweigh the use of a nuclear weapon in the Viet Nam war 2 Military leaders believe nuclear weapons dont fit the needs of the war There is however another aspect to US policy on use of nuclear weapons as defined by top ofifcials If in another con flict a situation arises requiring their use they will be used said release of some of the US stockpile posed a direct threat ot markets while the re lease of government copper stocks is to meet a demand in

songs to me on the way in on the bus We told the parents last night we were coming so that they could prepare the children so that it wouldnt be a trau matic experience for them In stead they apparently told them other things some of which were not true The Amish farmers have been maintaining two oneroom schools taught by their own teachers with eighth grade ed ucation which they think is enough for the simple farm life Their failure to have statecerti fied teachers is the basis of the dispute At the Haileton school the children found persons to show them around and to introduce them to schoolmates The girls in their bonnets and the boys in their flat hats took part in recess after class Some of the boys played basketball They had never ridden in a school bus Fathers and mothers

disclose all its internal work ings t It took the jury of eight wom en and four men hours to decide the government had proved not only that the party failed to register but did so despite the availability of a vol unteer to sign the forms on its behalf After an earlier trial in 1962 the party was convicted and fined but this was re versed by the Court of Appeals on the grounds the government had failed to prove there was such a volunteer The court said party officers could not be com pelled to register because they would risk selfincrirnmation under other antiCommunist laws This time the government proved that two paid FBI plants within the party a California housewife and an elderly re tired Negro longshoreman were available as volunteers if the party chose to use them
