InteUig«uié imports have said Russia technicians aid advisers were known tatw wftrMng in,t|lia tudmiflrtprg. iHit t^lNW was no immediate comment on this from the command.  A six-page communique reporting the assessment of damage done by nearly 2,-000 strikes in North Vietnam during the past week said:  "The North Vietnamese Air Defense Headquarters at Bach Mai air field, south of Hanoi, was struck by U.S. Air Force F4s. destrovine several structures."  Bach Mai is three miles south of Hanoi.  Ilie command also disclosed ISut air strHces against North Vietnam have been stepped up to an average of 2S0 per day in the campaign ordet«d by President Nixon n week ago to chdke off supply routes to the south.

Wallace, shot and critically wounded on the eve of what looms as his biggest 1972 political triumph, is favored to sweep Democratic presidential primaries today in Michigan and Maryland, possibly boosted by a sub-sUntial sympathy vote.  Michigan will divide 132 delegates to the Ehnocratic National Convention proportionately according to the presidential preference voting. In Maryland, 53 votes will be decided on the basis of statewide and congressional district results.  Even before a gunman shot Wallace as he campaigned Monday in the Washington suburb of Laurel, Md. he had been favored to win in both states, and after the shooting an aide said the governor would continue his drive for the presidency. His top rivals are Sens. George McGovem and Hubert H. Humphrey, considered the leading candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.  The incident may create "a large sentiment to vote for Wallace," president Tom Turner of the Metropolitan Detroit AITT-PTO a HiimDhrev backer, oredicted.  ouHi~rier» ana periuipa ■wuig some voters undecided between the Alabama governor and another candidate.

PolLs were scheduled to open from' 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. EDT in Maryland; where only Democrats can cast votes in the Democratic primary.  In Michigan, which is holding its first presidential primary, polls were to open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. EDT, with officials predicting a turnout of 1.2 million of the state's 4.1 million registered voters. Voters could decide in the booth Aether to vote in the Democratic or Republican primaries.  In both states. President Nixon was expected to be an easy winner in the GOP primaries.  Victories today would add a border state and a northern industrial state to Wallace triumphs in Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina.  In Maryland, where Wallace polled 43 per cent of the vote in the 1964 Democratic primary, Humphrey hoped for strong showings in the labor strongholds of Baltimore and its suburbs to overcome an expected heavy WaUace vote in rural areas. McGovem's strength was believed confined to the Washing suburbs.

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) - Arthur H. Bremer, the onetime photography student charged with shooting Democratic presidential candidate George C. Wallace, is described as a quiet but confident loner.  Hie picture drawn by relatives, friends and acquaintances of the man who is accused of gunning down Wallace and three others at a Maiyland shopping center Monday is that of a youth who kept his opinions to himself, developed few friendships and was something of a puzzle even to his family.  Bremer, 21, is being held in lieu of 1200,000 bond in Maryland, under federal dharges of assaulting a candidate for public office and a federal officer and under state charges of assault with intent to kiU.  Although acquaintances, including classmate in his college i^iotograidiy class, said they were not aware of poUtical interests or activity on the part of the blond, young man with close-cropped hair, effects foun4 in his Milwaukee apartment Monday nigit indicated otherwise.  Among the'items in the West Side apartment were a Confederate flag and newspaper ^i^ings about WaUace's campaign, some dating to 1968 wheh Wallace staged a third-party effort.  trtif must have been for George . because he had a Wallac« (rtifJcftr  —i weréiûly dm^ knbw Is thé extent of the casualties we've inflicted on the North Vietnamese," he added. "We know they are heavy, but we don't know how heavy."  South Vietnamese forces continued to push out from Hue to widen their defenses and keep the North Vietnamese from getting close enough for an all-out attack (hi the old imperial capital.  Government troops sweeping in the path of B52 raids uncovered about 18 tons of artillery, rocket, mortar and small arms ammunition stockpiled at various points for attacks on Hue. A cache of 2,500 mortar siWlls was found less than two miles nmtheast of Fire Base Bastognc, which the South Vietnamese recaptured Monday. Basto^ is 12 miles southwest of Hue.  Reporting im the air war against the North, a U.S. communique said: "AU pumping stations along the main Communist pipeline running down the southern panhandle of North Vietnam into the demilitarized zone were destroyed.  "This effectively cuts the line which previously could carry 1,130 metric tons of fuel per day to support enemy mechanized equipment and trucks q>erating in the demilitarized zone and northern Quang Tri province.  "In ad(Ution, U.S. Air Force tactical air strikes cut the pipeline in several places. The continued daily interdiction of roads and rail lines and the destruction of bridges in the panhandle further impedes the enemy's efforts to move fuel south by surface transportation."  The pipelhie runs from the coastal city of Vinh, 145 miles north of the DMZ. Coastal tankers delivered the fuel to Vinh.

''-ií^ ■'■ -«  WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate votes today on adding to an end-ihe-war amendment a proviso with one of President Nixon's conditions for a total U.S. troop withdrawal—an internationally supervised ceasefire.  The proviso was proposed by Sen. Robert C. Byrd, the assistant Denuxratic leader, to be included in the amendment sponsored by Sens. CUfford P. Case, R-N.J., and Frank Church, D-Idaho.  The amendment would cut off all appropriations for U.S. forces in Indochina four months after American prisoners were released by Hanoi.  The Byrd provision, in addition, would require an internationally supervised cease-fire before money could be withheld.  In announcing the mining of NorUi Vietnamese ports, Nixon said he would withdraw U.S. troops from Vietnam four months after an intei^tionally supervised cease-fire and following Hanoi's return of American prisoners.  Case and Church incorporated the wording on prisoners, saying it would back up with law what the President offered the North Vietnamese.  And Byrd moved to put the cease-fire worduig into the amendment.  "If there is to be an end to wholesale slaughter, it can't be accomplished just by withdrawing U.S. forces," Byrd said as debate drew to a close Monday.  But Clase and Church said the presidential provision would weaken their amendment.  (3»urch said the cease-fire proviso would bind the President's bargaining positior and freeze the chief executive into sometiiing he may want to discard later.

Appearing before a Senate Appropriations suoéommittee on Monday, Secretary of State William P. Rogers urged Congress not to pass any end-the-war legislation that would undercut Nixon's Vietnam policy.  And Rogers called for an end to criticism of Nixon's response to what Rogers termed "a massive North Vietnamese escalation" of the war.  Opponents of the Case-Church amendment have contended that even discussion of such a proposition encourages the North Vietnamese and weakens the President's position in Moscow.  By adding the cease-fire language, the amendment was viewed as more attractive to Republican moderates. Hpw-ever, supporters of the Case-Church amendment said that a watering-down to accommodate these moderates would turn antiwar Democrats against their own  "Htsam it iavii, Mái^ . .

Bremer moved into the apartment from his family's South Side home last fall. Neighbors said he dropped from sight about a month ago.  Wasche also said he was "pretty sure" that Bremer had worked for Wallace in the Wisconsin Democratic primary campaign in April.  Bremer's truck driver faUier, WiHiam, 58, said his son had "never mentioned anything poUticai," but he said he had learned that his son was a "dues-paying member of the 12th Ward Democratic unit."  Notebooks found in the apartment included one with the words "Cheer up, Oswald" in large print. Then, in smaller print, were the words "white coUar conservative ... middle class Republican ... suburbanite robot."  Members of Bremer's family—who hadn't seen him smce he moved to the apartment in October^^escribed hhn as "shy and timid," and they expressed dis-beUef that he could have been involved hi the shooting.  "We could never talk to him." said a younger brother. Roger, 18. "We jjever knew much about him."

Several dozen pers(ms, scmte of them holding lighted candles, stood vigil outside the hospital during the operattra.  Bremer was taken before u.s.
