Council delegates believed the resolution would get only four of the nine votes needed for adoption, clearing the way for action the Soviet request for the assembly to meet. Following defeat of the Soviet resolution, Secretary-General U. [Thant would poll the 122 U.N. members by telegram, and the necessary majority of 62 countries was expected to agree to the emergency session. Thant then was likely to call the session on 24 hours' notice.

Dodd defended today The ethics committee, after a investigation, his honesty and his honor against the ethics committee's recommendation that he be cen sured for financial misconduct. A member of the Senate since 1959, the white-haired Connecticut Democrat spoke slowly and forcefully and appealed to his colleagues to decide the issue on its merits and without political considerations. He hit hardest at the charge he bilked the government on travel expenses. He said if he is judged a thief, he should be expelled from the Senate. Dodd acknowledged the use of some campaign and testimonial funds for personal expenses - but not to the extent reported by the bipartisan ethics committee. The wife of the 60-year-old senator and four of their six children listened from the gallery as he said "a man's reputation is his most precious possession" and appealed for justice, not mercy. * * * More than 80 of the 100 senators were in their seats and listened attentively. In denying during Tuesday's opening of debate on the resolution that he deliberately billed the Senate for travel expenses collected from private groups, Dodd said, "I am telling you the his fellow senators judged him to be a thief, they should expel truth, the whole truth and noth-lhim from the Senate rather than 14-month investigation, found Dodd billed both the Senate and private organizations for travel expenses on seven trips and also used political funds for his personal benefit. Dodd blamed the double-bill- mejust censure him. The bipartisan ethics ' panel said Dodd should be censured for a course of conduct that "tends to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute." Committee Chairman John Stcnnis, D-Miss., bore down most heavily on the panel's finding that Dodd converted at ing on bookkeeping errors and least $116,083 in political funds disclosed for the first time .that to hls personal benefit, he had sent a check for $1,763.96 to the Senate disbursing office "in full payment for the seven trips that were erroneously billed to the government." As a hush settled on the normally noisy Senate floor, and as Dodd's wife and other members of his family listened from the gallery, Stennis said: he held only a trustee or fiduciary control." He was referring to contributions to Dodd's 1964 re-election campaign and to funds raised at a series of testimonial affairs for Dodd between 1961 and 1965. As to the double billings, Stennis said he believed the testimony of Michael V. O'Hare, Dodd's former bookkeeper, who said the Connecticut senator in structed him to enter the dual travel charges.

The focus in today's debate was on the Middle East and France's foreign minister, Maurice Couve de Murville, declared French opposition to imposition of any United Nations settlement in the area. Later the ministers went into secret session on Vietnam. After the conclusion of the meeting, Rusk took a plane for Washington.

FRANCIS COLLEGE OPEN JO A.M. - 9 P.M. Tampa, Fla., Tuesday night despite an outbreak of arsonist fires. "The people wanted a chance and we want to give them . a chance," said a police spokesman after Sheriff Malcolm Beard withdrew the troops and police. Negro leaders had promised there would be no trouble. But in Ohio, officials called in National Guardsmen to aid hard-pressed policemen trying to stem a second night of racial rioting which spread through Cincinnati and outlying areas with sporadic fires and stoning of cars. The Tampa Fire Department reported 13 alarms after the troops were pulled out. "They are mostly fire bombs and building fires," the dispatcher said. * * * A Negro leader at a fire scene said he felt there would have been even more fire bomb ings if police had not withdrawn. "You can't get to the kids who are doing this," a Negro fire man said. "They are teen-agers, and they don't listen to anybody." Shortly after midnight, a Negro patrolman said things were "almost back to normal." Riots broke out Sunday and continued sporadically. The Tampa violence apparently was triggered by the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old Negro by a white policeman. Cincinnati Mayor Walton S. Bachrach asked Gov. James A. Rhodes for National Guardsmen after violence spread over a wide area of his city. The Guardsmen, carrying the fixed For Kennebunk Motel Call 9854404 After 4 P. M, BLACKTOP SEALER MAC'S SEALER SERVICE Free Estimates 034-292$ Old Orchard Beach bayonets and with machine guns mounted on Jeeps, moved into the riot areas early today. Police said more than 20 persons had been arrested and at least 22 injured. The trouble broke out in the Avondale section, the neighborhood where rioting erupted the night before. Within minutes, trouble calls poured in from the city's other predominantly Negro areas. A deluge of fire alarms, most of them false, poured in. Elsewhere on the racial scene, black power advocates Stokely Carmichael and Rap Brown appeared before the second march in two nights by young Montgomery, Ala., Negroes. Both were critical of action by white officials during a gun battle at nearby Prattville Sunday night. "These white-helmeted cops are your enemies!" shouted Carmichael as he pointed at the Montgomery police who had blocked the marchers from their destination, the State Capitol. The gunfire between Negroes and law enforcement officers in Prattville Sunday night had fol lowed Carmichael's arrest on a charge of disorderly conduct. He was released Tuesday under $500 bond. In New York, 16 white teenagers were arrested and charged with unlawful assembly Tuesday night after a row with a dozen Negro youths in Brooklyn. In Warren, Mich., police guarded the home of a racially mixed couple after a mob of more than 80 persons hurled stones at the house and shouted threats. A picture window was shattered by stones in the $25,-000 house being purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Corado Bailey, but no injures were reported. Bailey is a Negro and his wife, Ruby, is white. Calm returned to the predominantly Negro Watts district of Los Angeles after a night in which 500 Negroes threw rocks and bottles at firemen fighting a $35,000 blaze. In Washington, President] Johnson repeated his pledge of U.S. support for the territorial! integrity of all Middle East nations but said "events of the days ahead" would determine how it is carried out. He said that the first priority for the United States was "peace in the area." The foreign ministers of the 15 North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-Iinn nations were meeting in Luxembourg, and eight of them were reported supporting such Israeli demands as Arab recognition of Israel's statehood and the rights of Israeli shipping to use the Suez Canal and the Gulf of Aqaba. France was not among them. Israel meanwhile began administering the territory west of the Jordan River that it seized from Jordan as a separate entity. Reliable sources said the area would remain separate from Israel until a final settlement is made. The Old City of Jerusalem will be incorporated into Israel, however, and air-conditioned sightseeing buses are already touring the holy places there. The sources said other former areas of Jordan would have a special status with their own currency, customs posts and telephone system, and Arabs would not be allowed to pass freely into Israel.

In ' line with this, Saudi Arabian delegate Jamil ( M. Baroody commented that for the Arabs, the result of an assembly session would be "zero." Gromyko's letter said that despite the Security Council's three cease-fire resolutions, Israel had "seized further territories" from Egypt, Jordan and Syria. The letter called for "the convening of an emergency special session of the United Nations General Assembly within 24 hours" to demand "the immediate withdrawal of Israel forces behind the armistic,e lines" fixed at the end of the 1949 Arab-Israeli war. While Gromyko did not say so, his letter indicated that he was acting under the assembly's 1950 "uniting for peace" resolution, which was adopted to circumvent the Soviet veto in the council. The Soviet Union has always called it illegal. * * * An emergency special session can be called only under that resolution, and only when the council has failed to act for peace "because of lack of unanimity of the permanent members, the big powers. The Soviet resolution before the Security Council "vigorously condemns' Israel's aggressive activities and continued occupation" of part of Egypt, Syria and Jordan and "demands that Israel should immediately and unconditionally" withdraw her troops behind the armistice lines. U.S. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg told the council at a ty of an onboard motor to adjust its path later in the flight, they said. * * * "Spacecraft performance also appears to be very good," said Allen E. Wolfe, Mariner 5 system manager for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Pasadena, Calif., which oversees the Mariner 5 project. Wolfe said experiments to study radiation in interplanetary space were turned on and the craft's four power-producing solar panels deployed. Guidance sensors aboard the S35-million Mariner 5 locked onto the sun for orientation as planned. During a brief 26-minute encounter Oct. 19 when Mariner 5 is to pass within 2,000 miles of Venus, electronic fingers of high-frequency radio signals were to penetrate through dense Venusian clouds to study radia tion levels and atmospheric pressure, and These findings would be im portant to scientists trying to deduce whether Venus can support life. No camera was aboard because of a weight limitation. Mariner scientists said they did not know whether the U.S. craft or the Soviet 2,438-pound Venus 4 would arrive at the planet first. The Soviets have announced only that Venus 4's trip will take about four months. The Soviet Venus 3, which crash-landed on the planet in March 1966, was to send a sphere filled with experiments parachuting to the planet's surface. Details of Venus 4's mission plan have not been announced. Experiments packed aboard Mariner 5 were to measure atomic hydrogen and atomic oxygen in the planet's upper atmosphere, from which a temperature profile can be calculat-ed. Other spacecraft instruments were to further refine atmospheric temperatures, pressures and densities. SAIGON (AP) - Communist guerrillas swarmed through a small Mekong Delta hamlet before dawn today, killing or wounding perhaps 80 Vietnamese civilians and militiamen. The attack was one of several deep in the delta near Can Tho during the night. They occurred near the Cambodian border in an area where the Viet Cong control vast areas of the countryside by night Ground action was light out-land tho attack was beaten off. side the delta, the U.S. Com mand reported. In the air war against North Vietnam, U.S. pilots reported six more MIGs probably destroyed on the ground in the ninth attack on the Kep air base north of Hanoi and widespread destruction to supply lines extending from Hanoi and Haiphong. The heavy Viet Cong attack in the delta fell on two adjoining hamlets .110 miles southwest of Saigon. While one was being raked by mortar fire, perhaps as a diversion, guerrillas smashed into the other. A company of about 120 militia defended the second village. They nastily called for artillery support and for the U.S. Dragon Ship planes that nightly circle the delta to provide flares and Galling gun support for embattled outposts. A Vietnamese spokesman said 19 civilians were killed, 41 were wounded and the militia suffered heavy casualties, a term that means at least 20 were killed or wounded. * # * More guerrillas hit a South Vietnamese training center at Tan An, about 25 miles away. Once again Dragon Ships dropped flares and strafed the attackers with Galling guns, The U.S. Command reported the Dragon Ships were called out 24 times during the night, mostly against Viet Cong probes in the delta. Elsewhere, there was some fighting in the central highlands around Pleiku and more in the 1st Corps area below the 17th Parallel dividing Vietnam. The fighting around Pleiku cost one U.S. Air Force Super-sabre jet which dove into the ground, probably after being hit by guerrilla fire. The pilot was killed. It was the 185th combat plane downed by hostile action in South Vietnam. Also in the 1st Corps area, big B52 bombers pounded suspected Red infiltration routes in Quang Tri Province twice Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Infiltration routes in Quang Tri, South Vietnam's northernmost province, have been hit seven times in three days now. The U.S. Command reported 97 missions over North Vietnam Tuesday, with fair flying weather over most important target areas. The North Vietnamese air force was up in some force, and U.S. pilots reported sighting many MIGs but no dogfights were reported. The raid on the Kep base was the third since Saturday and brought the total number of MIGs reported destroyed, damaged or probably destroyed to 16. The railroad yards at Kep were also attacked and pilots said they destroyed or damaged 15 to 20 boxcars including one tank car which sent dense smoke 3,000 feet into the air. On the political scene, the South Vietnamese Provisional Assembly endorsed a proposal by the ruling military junta that presidential and senatorial elections be held on the same day-Sept. 3. Only the presidential election had been scheduled that day. The. Senate election had been set for Dec. 17. The junta requested the change on the ground that the original schedule would leave the new president without an elected legislature for too long. HELP WANTED T.C.F.
