S. naval forces operat- ing off Viet Nam, American fighters can chase them across the Red China fron- tier if necessary. The decision to provide more precise authority for 0. S. pilots to apply the principle of "hot pursuit" and deny the Communist privileged sanctuary" re- portedly was prompted by Inc Red Chinese movement of Soviet-biiilt jet warplanes into Communist Viet Nam early in August. The aircraft were intro- duced itilo the area after American planes blasted torpedo boats and other in- stallations in North Viet Nam following attacks on American destroyers in the Tonkin Gulf. The sequence of events in- dicates a slow and cautious escalation of the danger of direct U.S.-Chinese clashes in southeast Asia. This situation is likely to become more tense, and probably much more seri- ous, if deteriorating politi- cal conditions inside South Viet Nam tempt tile Com- munists to exploit the dis- order and political instabil- ity. A buildup of military pres- sures inside South Viet Nam by increased Red guerrilla strikes and parallel external actions could produce a very grave crisis in short order. Cuero Bond Proposition Voted Down DEMANDED From Washington's point of view, however, Ihe South Vietnamese situation is sub- ject to so many unpredicta- ble developments that no one here can say whether the worst possibilities of in- creasing danger are likely to be realized or not. Wha't is said authoritatively is that administration leaders, deeply occupied at home with the American politi- cal campaigns, would like lo do what they can within the limits of U.S. policy to keep the situation as quiet as possible. The Pentagon announced Aug, week after the U.S. retaliation raids that "a number" of oid style, (Soviet MIG15 and MIG 17 fighters had been moved by Red China into North Viet Nam. The Red planes are far slower than the U.S. Navy jet fighters which are capa- able of speeds up lo miles an hour, yet they are fast enough to add a new dimension to hostilities in the narrow air space over lhe Gulf of Tonkin. State and defense depart- ment spokesmen said this svholc subject coincs under what they eal! the "rules of engagement" for U.S. mili- tary forces and is an Ail- Force secret. They said they would not even con- firm the existence of a Johnson authorization for across national frontiers pursuit if necessary in com- bat.

They were not riols of Negroes against whites or whites against Negroes. And they were not a direct outgrowth of conventional civil rights protest."
