The heavily populated Delta with mangrove thickets and Rice paddies laced by 25,000 Nativa ble Miles of Waterways has been out of the martial mainstream because of the Prospect that Sharp action against indigenous Viet Cong bands would mean heavy civilian casualties. Its hard for even a native to distinguish guerrillas from peaceful Panama Clad peasants.

That is a tag avoided so far because the americans have been deployed where there were fewer people and More room to Man Euver. Experts figure a full infantry division 15,000 or so men is the minimum needed to really Start carving through the stalemate.

Bartlett has held a wide Range of interests on his Way to becoming governor of Oklahoma. A native of Ohio Bartlett was raised in a Lush truck farming area and says he held a number of farm jobs during the Summers before developing an interest in Oil.

Adam Clayton Power be removed As a committee chairman monday but that he be allowed to remain in Congress. The attempt to strip Powell of the chairmanship of the education and labor committee Wel be one of two attacks on the houses almost sacrosanct seniority system at the democratic party caucus a Day in Advance of the opening of Congress. The liberals will try also to prevent rep. William m. Col Mer d-miss., a conservative from moving into the vacant chairmanship of the important House rules committee. The pre caucus strategy has been worked out by leaders of the democratic study group which with a claimed membership of 145, represents a majority of the 248 democratic House members. In their Effort to topple two chairmen the Eberall will be going against the wishes of speaker John w. Mccormack d-mass., who regards the seniority system As a Cornerstone of congressional organization.
