BROWNE SAIGON, South Viet Nam Vietnamese forces using decisive airpower scored two major vic- tories over the Communist Viet Cong in.the past two days killing more than 100 Red. guerrillas and wound- ing or capturing hundreds more, officials of President Dinh Diem's govern- ment said today.

Official action talwn by the board as it moved through a light agenda included a final decision on the problem of Washington's south windows. The sun's glare through these windows has troubled students and teachers for some months: and the problem has been up before the board in previous meetings.

However, a majority of the members present plumped for the outside screens and their rel- ative freedom from maintenance problems. The board set March 27 as the date for the annual school elec- tion, to authorize the extra five- mill school levy and five-mill building fund levy, both of which have been consistently approved in past years. In the same election voters will be asked to elect a board mem- ber from Ward fhree, comprising the Irving and Glenwood districts: The post is currently held by Millard Lawson, whose term ex- pires this year. Filing Period Filing period for the office opens March 7 and closes March 17. Lawson announced his inten- tion to seek re-election. Voting March 27 will be in Con- vided the knockout punch for the other, the officials said. Biggest This Year The reported military successes are understood to be South Viet Nam's biggest of the year. They followed closely on three straight setbacks for Diem's pro-Western government. Government ground forces fol- lowing up a strike by the South Viet Nam air force in Phuoc Thanh Province found 60 Viet Cong bodies Monday. 'They esti- mated at least 240 more Commu- nist guerrillas were wounded in the attack by the single-engine propeller planes Sunday.

Burned Post The operation centered around 1 the government outpost of Bo Tuc, which was attacked Sunday night by a Viet Cong force now estimated at Only. 79 civil guards and militiamen manned the post. They managed to hold on through the night, but 15 were killed and 10 were missing the next day. The attackers burned the post. South Vietnamese air force planes dropped a battalion of 540 paratroops near the post Monday. Before the battle was done, 56 Viet Cong were killed and large numbers were reported wounded or captured. Relief Battalion U.S. Army helicopters shuttled in a second battalion today to as- sist in running down fleeing Com- munist guerrillas.

Bands of young Moslems came through adjoining streets smash- ing windows and damaging parked cars rocks, pipes and iron bars.

In an unusual report, Hulett candidly pointed the finger at Doerfler-Krapff Corporation, pav- ng contractor from Oklahoma City, .for bad performance in some cases and poor public relations. Contractor Rapped Doerfler-Krapff was awarded contract for districts No. 68 and 71. Hulett, engineer on the jobs, said frankly that "we had trouble (with the contractor) more trouble than we've ever had." Several councilmen reported some cracks that have been called to the attention of the city officials and requested that Hulett check over the jobs. Finally, ft was agreed that the engineer and the councilmen themselves will spend most of a day looking over the districts on which Hulett has performed en- gineering services to determine whether there are any faults to be corrected by the contractor. Another contractor has already of 'some: minor cor- rections on, -'two' districts, Hulett said.. As for-the recent district, completed by Palm Paving Co., Hulett commented, "1 think the contractor did a good job in all phases." Appraisers Report The amended report simply made nine minor changes. The city clerk, Tom Grant, caught ownership and dimension correc- tions necessary. Hulett compli- mented the city clerk, and added, "No city that has a lazy city clerk or lazy city manager ever does any paving." The engineer was highly, complimentary of the city's administration. The city manager, J. B. David- son, reported from airport operations and from state, bus, and gasoline taxes. The amounts were approved and appropriated to maintenance and operation accounts.
