A Vietnamese spokesman said the company was hit Friday on Highway 13 - a favorite Viet Cong ambush route - at a point 18 miles northwest of Saigon. The company had been assigned to provide security for a military supply convoy. After the last truck passed the company's area, the spokesman said, a Viet Cong force estimated at a reinforced battalion struck from both sides of the road. Unofficial reports said most of the company was killed or wounded. Elsewhere in South Viet Nam, both the U. S, and Vietnamese commands reported only small-scale fighting Friday. However, two Viet Cong hit- light in South Philadelphia, police said. One of those slated at 4:30 a.m. today was 17-year-old Pal-rick Conahan, who, according to police, walked into Hazleton, Pa., police headquarters Friday night accompanied by his mother and said: "I was involved in that incident in Philadelphia yesterday morning and I want to turn myself in. I was driving the car when the policeman was shot." Earlier Friday night, another 17-year-old, Paul Magilton, back on his job of hustling baggage for passengers at a center city bus terminal, was picked up by a policeman.

Corazon Amurao, 23, filled in details missing from her first, hysterical account blurted out to police when she finally fled the blood-splattered house of death Thursday at dawn. At least one mystery remained, however, and police shed no new light on it after the interview with Miss Amurao: Why were there no loud screams, no outcries for help, during the time the killer bound and gagged the nine girls, herded them into a back room, and led eight of them out one at a time to their deaths? "There were some light outcries by the girls who came in late, but it wasn't much," Spiotto said Miss Amurao told him. An autopsy report showed the By AUSTIN SCOTT and HOLLIE WEST CHICAGO (AP) - "I don't get it," said the Negro cab driver as he threaded his hack among shards of glass littering streets in the West Side district torn by nights of rioting. That just about summed up the statements of residents there. Most seem puzzled by the violence. The cabbie, speaking of youths who spearheaded the looting, burning and shooting, added: "If I'm mad at you I'm going to get you, even if I have to sleep on your doorstep to do it. But I'm not going to do something that will _ louse up everybody. And By JAMES E. DWYER CHICAGO (AP) - Squads of impressively armed National Guardsmen and police restored relative peace today to the scarred streets of a West Side area ripped since Tuesday by racial violence. Youthful gangs who had loot-ted, burned and fired sniper-style from rooftops faded away Friday night as guardsmen - told lo shoot to kill if fired upon - went on patrol. Through the streets of a 140-square-block area rolled trucks loaded with soldiers, rifles at the ready, bayonets fixed; jeeps with machine guns mounted; police cars with shotguns poked out windows. Knots of Negroes lined curbs in some areas, catcalling occasionally, but there were only scattered incidents: one reported sniper shooting, with police returning fire but finding no one; a fire bomb thrown into a street outside a home; a few store windows broken; several fires in houses and stores. By midnight, police reported, streets were virtually deserted. The calm contrasted dramatically with Thursday night, when an estimated 5,000 were abroad. Then, two Negroes were killed by gunshot and 30 were injured amid widespread shooting, looting and burning that continued into the day Friday. Gov. Otto Kerner called up the Guard, 3,000 strong, Friday at the request of Mayor Richard J. Daley. The mayor said he felt police alone could not cope with the rioting, worst in the North since 34 were killed in massive rioting in Los Angeles last August. Maj. Gen. Francis P. Kane hold 1,500 troops in reserve and sent 1,500 into action, operating from a base in a parking lot. They teamed with 1,000 police. "If anybody shoots at my men," Gen. Kane told newsmen, "my orders are to shoot back - shoot to kill." The word must have gotten around. Newsmen interviewing Negroes on the streets reported an attitude of fear among many - especially of the guardsmen. There was much comment about weapons. And there were some who said the Guard will leave, sooner or later, and trouble will come anew.

State police from Philipsburg said the color of the unidentified car was maroon. Damage was fixed at $5. east of Saigon. They inflicted light casualties and damaged several vehicles, a Vietnamese spokesman said. In the North Viet Nam raids, a U. S. spokesman said American planes knocked out at least two of the six missile sites attacked. One was 25 miles northeast of Hanoi and the other about 18 miles southeast of the North Vietnamese capital.

Dozens of interviews during hours of walking the streets Friday night, as heavily armed National Guardsmen restored order, produced no pattern beyond this: Most agree that the youngsters are angry. They disagree as to why. Virtually all feel that the appearance of the Guard prevented another night of violence. Unlike the Los Angeles racial riots of 1965, cries of "Get whi-tey" or "Burn baby burn" were scarce during the Thursday-Friday peak outburst here. There was no indication that any one cause - alleged police brutality, hate of white merchants, for instance - was the spark.

Indira Gandhi told reporters before flying to New Delhi that Soviet leaders had told her they could agree to peace proposals only if North Vict Nam accepts them. And Hanoi has not commented on her proposals, which include Soviet action in calling a peace conference in Geneva. Communist China has rejected her ideas. Premier Alexci N. Kosygin headed officials at the airport to see her off. Kosygin stayed on to welcome British Prime Minister Harold Wilson an hour later. Wilson will attend a British trade fair here and also discuss Viet Nam with Kosygin. Mrs. Gandhi said the Soviet Union has promised "just under" a billion rubles (slightly more than $1 billion at the official rale) in aid for India's fourth five-year plan, which is now beginning. This will be about equal to all the economic aid which the Soviet Union had supplied to India in the past. Virtually all has been on long-term credit for repayment in Indian products. At a news conference before flying home after four days of talks with Soviet leaders, Mrs. Gandhi said she thought a precondition for peace talks "would be the stopping of bombing" of North Viet Nam." Talking separately to reporters, Soviet Premier Kosygin said he had explained to Mrs. Gandhi "our position - that American aggression should be stopped and all foreign troops Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 2 Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 2 thority to handle those flights for the next 30 days that are not now being handled by the non-struck airlines.
