(Star Staff No New U. S. Tests Needed to Develop Anti-Missile System WASHINGTON (AP) The United States could develop an effective antimissile system with- out further nuclear testing in the atmosphere. But the warhead would require a greater "kill" margin to be extra sure, qualified scientific sources said .Sunday. It is known that last year's high- altitude nuclear tests over the Pacific gave U.S. atomic scien- tists and weapons engineers many data vital to a missile-killing system. That was one of the chief ob- jectives of the during which 34 nuclear devices were exploded between late April and November. Much was learned about the "blinding" effects of nuclear blasts on radar equipment which tracks incoming enemy warheads and discriminates between the real thing and any decoys ac- companying them. Those tests also disclosed much about the blackout of communi- cations resulting Irom atomic ex- plosions in the atmosphere. Dis- ruption of such links among radar, computers, and ground control gear could foul up a mis- sile defr .se. And the Pacific test shots yield- ed information on the impact of nuclear explosions on other atomic devices. Scientists would like more such data but there are strong indica- tions they could get by with what they learned from last year's high-altitude nuclear shots. The toughest problem in devel- oping a reliable antimissile sys- tem lies in the discrimination radar whose job it is to sort out the lethal enemy warheads from decoys. Perfecting discrimination radar is a job that does not hinge on nuclear testing. The Army has been working out its Nike-Zeus antimissile mis- sile against U.S. ICBM target warheads for the .past year. It has reported seven successful inter- cepts over the Pacific. In no case was a nuclear warhead used. The Nike-Zeus would foe part of a more advar-td system called Nike-X. The key in this advanced system is a new and, hopefully, more reliable radar component. Under the Nike-X concept, the Zeus rocket would "be launched to meet oncoming warheads about 100 miles out. A new and much faster missile called Sprint would speed out to knock down warheads that penetrated into the at- mosphere. The first annual Summer Rec- reation Swim Meet was held yes- terday at the Wilber Park Pool. Included were entrants Irom Pine Lake, Norwich, Cooperst o w n, Stamford, and Oneonta.

Crack Viet Nam Troops Avenge Loss to Viet Cong CHO GAO, Viet Nam (AP) The South Vietnamese 7th Divi- sion got its long-awaited revenge. The evidence: 58 guerrillas oi the crack Communist Viet Cong 514th Battalion lay dead in fox- holes and bunkers. It was revenge lor the savage beating the Reds handed to the 7tlh last January in the hamlet of Ap Bac. The Reds Jay in wait as U.S. helicopters landed soldiers of the 7th, then opened up with Mistering 'fire, killing 68 South Vietnamese and three Americans. The revenge battle was just as brutal. Nineteen government troops were killed and 45 wound- ed. K happened Saturday. The first reports of the est of the said 300 Viet Cong were killed. The battle arena was identical to Ap Bac. Both lie south, of Sai- gon on Mekong River Delta. Guerrillas were dug iff deeply around a perimeter of a tiny village. Government infantry and armored vehicles were driving in on them. According to U.S. advisers in the Mekong Delta there was one big difference in the two battles, Wihereas in Ap Bac, government, units lay around reluctant to. fight, this time they went in like battle-hardened veterans. 'Everything they did wrong aV" Ap Bac they did right one senior U.S. adviser told news- men flown here Sunday. Vietnamese officejs were proud that they had wreaked revenge on Battalion 514. _ But they also realized most of guerrilla unit had to light another day.
