(AP Photofax) By PEGGY SIMPSON WASHINGTON (AP) In a prime-time unity show, the Democrats have handed their vice presidential nomination to Sargent Shriver and cheered the ticket's opening swings at President Nixon and Vice President Spire T. Agnew. "I'm not embarrassed to be George McGovern's seventh choice for vice Shriver said Tuesday after the Democratic National Committee added him to the ticket. "We Democrats may be short of money. We're not short of talent. Think ol the comparison and then you can pity poor Mr. first and only choice was Spiro Agnew The Democrats loved it. "If we have used valuable lime in the selection of a vice presidential McGovern said, "the nation must wish the Republicans had made their choice wilh greater care." And thus the lines were drawn again, this lime With McGovern teamed with Shriver in place of Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton of Missouri, who withdrew last week after dis- closing that he had undergone shock treatment for mental depression in the 1960s. McGovern and Shriver were lo try and sustain the mo- mentum at a unity luncheon today with members of the Democratic National Commitlee, which winds up its extra- ordinary three-day meeting today with some ordinary busi- ness. In addition, Latin and women's caucuses were to meet separately with McGovern to air grievances that their favorite issues-aron't being represented in his cam- paign. In the balloting, Shriver was given of the commit- tee's authorized votes, It appeared he might be elected unanimously. But then Missouri Gov. Warren Hearnes cast his slate's 73 voles for i-aglcton, and Oregon cast four of its 74 votes for maverick Democrat Wayne Aforse who is trying for a Scnale come- back. Guam had nobody present and its three votes weren't counted. Shriver, 56, former director of Ihc Peace Corps and of Ihe anlipoverly program, a former ambassador to France, and a Kennedy in-law, outlined the Democratic campaign in accepting the nomination: "We intend lo go out and ask of our young people not just to protest against inadequate schools but to teach chil- dren; not just lo complain aboul the quality of law enforce- ment, but to enlist in our overburdened police forces and to join the staffs of prisons; not just lo make speeches about the Third World, but to serve abroad in a revived Peace Corps; not just to talk aboul love, but lo work wilh the re- arded, the elderly, the lonely, (he ill, the blind, and mil- lions of hungry children on this planet. _ "This is what America at ils best has said. That is what we will be again."

Officers in the field said 58 of the militiamen were near Kompong Trabek. The four crewmen and 10 to 15 refu- gees from the besieged provin- cial capital of Sva'y Rieng were reported killed. In :the air war -against North adiu DO ui uie uiiauamen were killed and 55 wounded in the Vietnam, a flight of; U.S. jets fighting Monday and Tuesday. The Rangers, moving on foot by helicopters, were maneuvering io get behind the estimated 250 North Vietnam- ese and Viet Cong in the Binh Song rubber plantation east of Highway 15. The enemy forces ambushed platoon of South Vietnamese militiamen on a patrol Monday along a dirt road between the village of Binh Son and Long Thanh. The North Vietnamese, with mines, mortars, and rocket grenades, then cut into the militiamen who were poured in to reinforce the pa- trol. The fighting tapered off by Tuesday night, but the enemy forces held its position despite U.S. and South Vietnamese bombing, officers said. Officers said it was the big- gest action in Long Thanh dis- trict in two years, and the first time during that period that the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong had stayed and fought; Previous enemy attacks were by platoon-size forces on a hit- and-run basis, the officers said. In Cambodia, Cambodian forces still holding part of the town of Kompong Trabek, 85 miles west of Saigon, drove back a north Vietnamese tank and infantry assault after with- standing a 500-round rockel and mortar barrage, the Cambodian command said. It said the Cambodians de- stroyed three North Vietnamese tanks. The Cambodians are being supported by U.S. bombers, and U.S. and Cambodian offi- cials have claimed 24 Soviet tanks knocked out since Sunday in the battle for Kompong Tra- bek, more than half of them by U.S. bombers.

No predictions on House vote on end-war mandate By JIM ADAMS WASHINGTON (AP) Pressures heightened on both sides today as the House moved toward a vola on an end-the-war mandate coupled to a forcign-mili- tary-aid bill. Neither side was predict- ing whether Ihe antiwar amendment would survive, although both friends and foes conceded the House could echo the Senate and vote down the entire bill. Again, the lineup was loo close to predict. "I think the foreign-aid bill is in danger whatever we said Speaker Carl Albert. Passage of the foreign-aid measure hinges on the amendment direct- ing withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Indochina by the end -of the turn for release of Amer- ican prisoners ami a limit- ed cease-fire lo assure safe withdrawal of American forces. The measure is one of Iwo cnd-lhe-war amend- ments before Congress. The other, stronger one would cut off all funds for U.S. war operations and provide for U.S. withdrawal from all parts of Indochina ex- cept Thailand within four months if Hanoi releases American prisoners and ac- counts for GIs missing in action. The Senate passed (he milder amendment, then killed the foreign-aid bill lo which it was attached. Bui in a quick turn- around, Ihe Senate passed the slronger end-lhe-war provision and also the Pen- tagon procurement bill car- rying it. Because the House version of that bill conlain- ed no end-the-war language, Ihe package was senl to a House Senate conference where il may languish with- out action. The House Ihen became the forum as doth sides step- ped up their lobbying. The counter pressure drives were being conducted by Republicans under GOP Leader Gerald R. Ford and by a coalition of antiwar congressmen and peace lob- byists. The war-pullout mandate originally carried a dead- line of Oct. 1 bul backers announced during opening debate Tuesday that they will move to change it to Dec. 31 to keep the issue oul of the presidenlial election.
