All four crewmen of three of the planes, downed Sunday near heavily-defended Hanoi, were listed as missing in action. The pilot of the fourth plane shot down Monday was rescued less than an hour after he parachuted 15 miles west of Dong Hoi. The losses brought to 361 the total of American planes reported lost over the North since the air war was launched in February of 1965. In South Viet Nam, U.S. officials reported an army twin- engined Caribou transport crashed Sunday into a village shortly after takeoff about 255 miles northeast of Saigon. Four Vietnamese Chilians were re- ported Hlled and 20 to 25 injured. Three Americans also were hurt. Air Force, Navy and Marine pilots took advantage of rare good bombing weather Sunday to carry out 134 missions against North Viet Nam. They struck at targets in the southern panhandle, just above the demilitarized zone separat- ing North and South Viet Nam, and at 30 targets around Hanoi. U.S. spokesmen reported only "light and scattered" ground action for American and allied forces throughout South Viet Nam. The government claimed a major victory over the Viet Cong in the U Minn forest in the Mekong Delta, about 140 miles south of Saigon. In three days of fighting, Vietnamese infantrymen and rangers teamed up with U.S. Army helicopters to kill 291 Viet Cong. South Vietnamese spokes- men said their forces suffered "moderate" casualties. North of Saigon, elements of the 101st Airborne Division's 1st Brigade wound up Operation John Paul Jones 240 miles from the capital.

In an apparent reply to French President Charles de Gaulle's call for U.S. commitment to a pullout in advance of any Viet Nam peace talks, the President told Labor Day audiences in Detroit and Lancaster, that American troops are in Viet Nam "because aggression is there." and he declared: "Those troops will go and their bases will be turned over for constructive peacetime soon as aggres- sion stops. "If anyone shows me the time schedule when infiltration will be the North- ern forces illegally in South Viet Nam will lay on the table the schedule for the withdrawal of our forces from Viet Nam." When the President was outlining this stand at Detroit's Cobo Hall, several protesters tried to interrupt him by yelling such things as "Let's stop the war in Viet Nam" and "Neutralize Viet Nam." Others in the audience hustled them into the arms of plainclothes- men. A brief battle broke out later in the day when Johnson again touched on the Vietnamese war in an address at the Montgome- ry County Fair grounds in Dayton. Ohio. Throngs which police esti- mated at hundreds of thousands of persons were in an exuberant holiday mood that matched Johnson's own high spirited Labor Day jaunt to Detroit and Battle Creek, Mich, and Dayton, Columbus and Lancaster. Ohio. Johnson piled 18 speeches into his 13 hour day. building up to a rousing climax as he motor- caded from the Port Columbus airport to the fair grounds at Lancaster and stopped a dozen times along the 30-mile route to shake hands and talk to cross- roads crowds. At the Lancaster site, the crowd waited through a rain- fall, as Johnson arrived an hour and one-half late. The President and Mrs. Johnson arrived back in Wash- ington shortly after midnight (EDT) after a one-hour flight from Ohio. The President's big jet-prop Convair touched down at Washington's National Air- port at a.m., and he and the First Lady helicoptered across the Potomac to the White House soon after. The scuffle in Dayton oc- curred after someone "tried to pull down a sign reading "Please stop the killing." The President noticed the flurry, directly in front of him in the big crowd, and said "Let's go on." He did. aird drew long applause when he said: "'Let us guarantee to our young people more than the right to dissent. Let us give them not only an opportunity to declare against something but to declare for something." He got another big hand when he looked soberly at the disturbance in the crowd and said: "Look at the men who wear the green beret and make it possible for you to dissent and to criticize." Johnson originally had includ- ed his remarks on withdrawal of troops from Viet Nam in his prepared speech for Lancaster. But he decided to get on record at the very outset of his at Detroit. There he also urged organ- ized labor to keep the national interest at heart in their wage demands, and indicated that the government was on the verge of deciding some actions to slow down the rapidly overheating economv. 'Planned Shoiv" Prisoners Stage Riot San Francisco Jail SAX BRUNO. Calif. (UPI) Prisoners in one cell block of San Francisco City Jail rioted for two hours Monday, burning mattresses and screaming from sixth floor windows. Sixty inmates w ere out of control until Sheriff Matthew Carberry entered their wing and convinced them to return to their cells. "This was a planned and prepared the sheriff said. He said four broadcasting stations had been telephoned before the riot began and told there would be trouble at the jail. Prisoners have been com- plaining about jail conditions for several weeks. Carberry said the sixth floor small portion of the jail's 575 prisoners mattresses in an empty cell and burned them when news- men appeared outside the jail in a suburban area 10 miles south of San Francisco. They then climbed to win- dows throughout the wing and screeched their complaints. A half dozen pickets were marching outside the jail to protest conditions when the rioting broke out. One of them, civil rights leader Dr. Thomas Burbridge, joined the sheriff in asking the prisoners to return to their cells. Carberry said the inmates, who were loose in the wing, agreed to end their agitation after he assured them some of their complaints were already being rectified.

Teen-Agers Strike Back Unrest Against Red Guards Sweeping Communist China TOKYO (UPI) unrest against the Red Guards is sweeping across Communist China, and the teen-age zealots are striking back with Stalin- era terror tactics, reports from Peking said Monday. There was widespread specu- lation the resistance was headed by groups opposed to Communist Party Chairman Mao Tse-Tung. The official Peking People's Daily made it quite clear that the opposition to the Red Guards would be ruthlessly crushed, by the army if necessary. The reports of unrest, by Japanese and Yugoslav corre- spondents in Peking, were corroborated by travelers arriv- ing in Hong Kong from China. Some travelers said the Tops 580 Mark Labor Day Death Toll Is Highest In History By United Press International The Labor Day weekend became the bloodiest in the nation's motoring history Sun- day night, breaking the record of 575 traffic deaths set a year ago. For the fourth time this year. a holiday weekend traffic toll established a new record. Americans died on the highways at the rate of nne every eight minutes during the 78-hour holiday period. A United Press International count at midnight. EDT showpd at least 583 persons dead in traffic since the holiday began. The breakdown: Traffic Drownings Planes IT Miscellaneous 43 Total 732 California led the nation with 52 traffic deaths. Ohio had 37. Texas and Michigan each listed 32 and New York 30. Illinois had 27. Iowa 26 and Pennsylva- nia 25. Georgia reported 20. Only Alaska and New Hamp- shire reported no traffic deaths during the weekend. The death toll Sunday was paced oy a pair of disastrous two-car collisions, claiming a total of 15 lives. The only states listing no traffic fatalities were Alaska and Xew Hampshire. A National Safety Council spokesman said that with the worst hours of the holiday still to coinc. the traffic death count was running about 10 per cent alwve the 1965 Labor Day pace. In a pre-holiday estimate, the Safety Council said that be- tween 530 and 630 persons would die on the highways between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight Monday. Fight died and two suffered serious injuries when a car carrying five teen-agers collid- ed with another automobile on a curve of U.S. 12 near Coldwater. Mich. guards were making house-to- house searches in Canton for their opponents. In one of these raids, the guards uncovered an arms cache of Nationalist Chinese espionage agents aird radio equipment, the travelers said. The arrivals said only Hed Guards are allowed on Canton streets after eight o'clock at night. They described the city, largest in southern China, as resembling a ghost town. Correspondents in Peking reported that there have been widespread flare-ups between Red Guards from the cities and country youths they have tried to proselytize. There were even battles reported between urban and rural guards. Mao openly backs the mili- tant youths and it became known late Sunday that Lin has agreed to become their top leader with Premier Chou En- Lai and Chief of Staff Marshall Ho Lung as advisers. The Peking-based correspon- dent for the Tokyo Shimbun reported it was not known how large the anti-Mao movement was, "But there is no doubt that the Chinese Communist party organization is in a state of split." The Peking People's Daily warned that "the party leader- ship was determined to "crush the people's enemies at all costs." Apparently taking cognizance of the opposition to the guards, an editorial in the newspaper indicated the Communist re- gime would prefer to carry out the "cultural revolution'' peace- fully. It urged it be done "by reason raiher than weapons." Bicycle Rider Struck Car Gwynn Coffman, 9. s o n of Dr. and Mrs. Ward D.
