Jim Bishop Tells Fantastic Story Of The Alcoholic Broker In Monday's y __ VOL. NO. TEN CENTS Appeal Sent To Britain, Russia KEY BISCAYNE, PI a., Nixon, seek-., ing to put to rest fears the nation is drifting toward another Vietnam, said Friday America has "no: plans for introducing ground combat forces in Laos." He disclosed he had sent an appeal Friday to' Soviet Pre- liiier Alexi Kosygiri and British Prime Minister Harold Wilson asking for their help in restoring the Southeast Asia nation to neutralist status established for it in the 1962 Geneva agreements. The chief executive, in a special word report tracing the history of America's involvement in Laos, said that ;the action America has. taken to date has been and "requested'' and that no American stationed in Laos has "ever been killed in ground combat operations." In amplifying the President's statement, however, a White House. official said the Air Force has suffered about 400 casualties in the fighting in including approximately 200 killed and an equal number captured or missing. The President revealed for the first time that the United States had increased air support of Price Souvanna Phouma's neutralist" govern- ment, but. the spokesman emphasized the United States had made no open-ended commitment in Laos, and was determined to keep American involvement to a minimum. Nixon said the North Vietnam- ese Have built their forces to men in Laos and now pose the greatest threat the embattled nation has faced in 20 years of intermittent war- fare. He said the .U.S. government, directly or indirectly, now employs Americans in Laos, and of this, number 320 are engaged in military adviso- ry or military training.rotes. "We desire nothing more in Laos than to see a return to the Geneva agreements and the withdrawal of North Vietnam- ese troops, leaving the Lao people to settle their own differences in a peaceful Nixon said. The President said he had not deemed it wise to speak out in detail previously on America's involvement in but recent events had forced a change of heart. "In recent he said, "there has been intense public speculation to the effect that the United' States involvement in Laos .has substantially in- creased in violation of the Geneva accords, that American ground. forces are engaged in combat in Laos, and that our air activity has bad the effect of the conflict. "Because these reports are grossly inaccurate, I have concluded that our national interest will be served by putting the subject into per- the President said. Most of the U.S. activity in Laos, the President said is a. direct result of the war in Vietnam and is aimed at denying to North'Vietnam the use of Laotian territory for smuggling men and supplies to South, Vietnam. Nixon said Communist domin-- ance in Laos would raise profound security problems for Thailand, a staunch American the south. He added that the United States has been in consultation with Thai officials over the threat. .In revealing that "in the neighborhood" of 400 planes had been lost in the six years of American air activity over including, losses in attacks on the Ho Chi Minh trail, the President said the interdiction of the enemy supplies was America's ''first priority" in its military role in Laos. The President said recent offensives had carried the North Vietnamese '.'beyond the farthest line Communist and added that native Laotian Communist fore-. es now were playing an "insignificant role" in the war. He said he appealed to Soviet Premier Kosygin and British Prime Minister Wilson as co- chairmen of the 1962 Geneva accord, which was supposed to guarantee neutrality to Laos; In addition to the United States; Britain and the Soviet Union, the nations which signed the agreement included Burma, Cambodia, Canada, Communist China, North Vietnam, France, India, Poland, South Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos. Nctiufets Great Spectacle Sun Eclipse By United Press International Far out in the South Pacific Saturday.thesun rises with a tiny scallop nibbled out of its lower. right-hand edge by the moon. That starts a 6-minute spectacular of "the skies .during which millions of North Ameri- cans in three countries will witness some degree of an eclipse of the sun, and many fortunate ones in a 90-mile-wide corridor along the Atlantic seaboard will feel the awe of daytime dark. The total eclipse of the sun along that race- path on earth will be by far the most dramatic of the century. The totality, lasting around three minutes at any spot the shadow passes at 1500 miles an hour on a sweep, comes when the moon. passes between earth and sun and completely covers the sun's main .body. .The sudden dark m the totality path, during which chickens go to roost, flowers close, and the sun's outermost atmosphere, the corona, sends out pink, scarlet, and violet streamers, is one of nature's great spectacles. The total eclipse shadow touches down in the Pacific at a.m. EST and races northeastward to reach first landfall at a.m. EST the arid and mountainous Isthmus of in southern Mexico, where several- hundred. scientists frcm '14 nations waited with, their observing equipment. The little-Indian village of Miahuatlan there was the focab point of astronomers, for a reading of "the eclipse of the and the forecast was for clear skies and ideal viewing. The scientific results will not be available for several months. Indian revelers danced to seven bands in the main square in the climax of the weeklong "Eclipse 70" fiesta at the 'village, now swollen with tourists, and girls, waved from floats pulled, by oxen. There no more rooms. Some tourists slept on the pavement, .others oh roofs. In the mountains, some Indian women prepared to hold blessed and lighted candles during the darkness to ward off evil events. The total eclipse reaches northwest Florida at p.m. EST and leaves the mainland at Norfolk, Va., 19 minntes later. Along that coastwise strip a million people live, and 50 million are within a day's drive.

Field reports said the Communists were taking the irUiaiive despite food and manpower problems. .Elsewhere, Jhe United States took another big step toward Vietnamizing the war.

Residents Warned EyeDamage v O By RANDY JONES TRStaff Reporter Hundreds of persons suffered eye damage following a solar eclipse in 1963 from looking directly into the sun without sufficient eye protection. About 30 per cent of the sun will be blocked out in Southeastern Ohio by the moon's shadow this afternoon. The Health Department. has Issued a word warning don't try direct observation or fool A .i the false security of homemade protective devices. Direct viewing of an eclipse of ths sun, even through smoked glasses, old photographic negatives or other filters can severely damage the eyes. The glaring visible rays are blocked by these filters, but the invisible infrared rays of the sun, which cannot be seen or felt, can cause damage. Persons who use protective devices for direct viewing often suffer more damage then persons who view the eclipse with the naked eye, simply because the person using devices can generally look at the sun for a longer period of lime, thus receiving more harmful rays. There is an answer, and a totally safe one, according to the accident prevention unit of the Ohio Health Department: Take two pieces of while cardboard, and make a pinhole in one. Face avray from the sun and focus the eclipse image through the pinhole board onto the second piece of cardboard. The size of the image can be altered by changing the distance between the two pieces of cardboard. FORECAST Partly ctariy today witt fcigfc tem- pcratwc hi tke 4ts.
