Up a a spokesman for 29 new England scientists has likened to gangsterism the United states use of chemicals to destroy crops believed grown for the Viet Cong in South Viet Nam. The comparison was made sunday at a news conference sponsored by the scientists who denounced the crop destruction in a letter to president Johnson and top officials. A even of it can be shown that the chemicals Are not toxic to Man such tactics Are barbarous because they Are indiscriminate a the letter said. A they represent an attack on the entire population of the Region where the crops Are destroyed combatants and non combatants a in other words a policeman act like a gangster a or. Bernard d. Davis of Harvard told the news conference. Davis is chairman of the department of bacteriology and immunology at the Harvard medical school.

The scientists statement continued a in the crisis of world warn in which the direct threat to our country was far greater than any arising in Viet Nam today our government firmly resisted any proposals to employ chemical or biological warfare against our enemies. A the fact that we Are now resorting to such methods shows a shocking deterioration of our moral standards. These attacks Are also abhorrent to the general standards of civilized Mankind and their use will earn us hatred throughout Asia and elsewhere. A such attacks serve moreover As a precedent for the use of similar but even More dangerous chemical agents against our allies and ourselves. Chemical warfare is cheap Small countries can practice it effectively against us and will probably do so if we Lead the Way. A in the Long run the use of such weapons by the United states is thus a threat not an asset to our National mrs. Kennedy mentioned As candidate Toms River nil. Up a mrs. John f. Kennedy vacationing in Switzerland today had the apparently quite unsought endorsement of a county democratic organization As a u. S. Senatorial candidate.

Staughton Lynd a Quaker who teaches history said at a news conference he based his speculation on a Jan. 5 interview he had with North Viet Nam Premier Pham Van Dong and on reports in Merican newspapers. During the 90-minute interview with Pham Lynd said the Premier denied Point Blank that any North vietnamese troops were aiding the Viet Cong in South Viet Nam. Lynd said this puzzled him but added to press reports Here indicating no Contact with North vietnamese troops since before the Christmas truce it a seems a possible indication of a favourable reaction to . Peace moves.
