Violence Flares As Election In Viet Nam Hears By GEORGE McAKTHUR SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) A rash of bombings and new intelligence reports today Indicated the Communists were building up a wave of violence in the four days left before South Viet Nam's election of a constitutional assembly. Sixteen persons have been injured in four bombing attacks in Saigon and Hue in the past 48 hours. A woman Viet Cong agent was captured in Hue with six band grenades. She admitted being part of a six-person terror cell and said they had orders to use their grenades on election day, Sept. 11. A similar terror cell was bro- ken up in Da Nang earlier this week 50 pounds of explo- sives were seized. Official quarters also dis- closed a captured Viet Cong document -that evidently came from senior authorities in the National Liberation Front. It ordered armed attacks on vital election personnel and "all oth- ers who are forcing our people to vote." The order directed teams to place bombs beneath and in polling places belore .election day presumably timed to go off on Sunday. The document, marked top secret by the Viet Cong, was seized by U.S.- soldiers during a sweep in the area north of Sai- gon several days -ago. Official sources said practi- cally every province in South Viet. Nam reported evidence -of tepped up Red pressure. Armed propaganda teams were nightly into countless lets to harangue and threat- villagers. The Communists can By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) American fighter- bombers again chopped up the two North Vietnamese rail lines between Hanoi and Communist China, the U.S. military com- mand reported today. In simultaneous blows at the vital supply links, Air Force F105 Thunderchiefs pounded the northwest line 102 miles from Hanoi Tuesday while others bombed the northeast line -55 miles from the capital. Ground fighting slowed to scattered small actions, but re- ports of Viet Cong terrorism aimed at disrupting the national elections Sunday came from several sections of the country. U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine pilots flew 136 multi- plane missions against North Viet Nam Tuesday, 20 short of their record. They hit oil depots, supply areas, a missile site and barges as well as the major rail lines. The pilots bombed and strafed a 15-car train on the northeast line, destroying five box cars and damaging one and cutting the line in three places, the spokesman said. On the northwest or Red Riv- er route, other Thunderchief pilots reported knocking out a bridge and ripping up the rails in three places. Pilots reported bomb hits on three fuel dumps and said they damaged or destroyed 24 build- ings, 16 bridges, 45 cargo barges, 13 junks and three an- tiaircraft sites. Navy fliers from the aircraft carrier Intrepid re- ported knocking out a surface- to-air missile site eight miles southwest of the coastal city of Vinh. The U.S. command in a de- layed report announced the loss of a Navy F8 Crusader Mon- day night. The carrier plane was shot down 50 miles south of Hanoi and the pilot is missing. It was the 362nd plane an- nounced lost over the north and the second shot down that day. No significant ground action was reported by American spokesmen today, but South Vietnamese headquarters re- ported its forces killed 74 Viet Cong in three engagements Tuesday. In the largest, Vietnamese Rangers killed 50 Viet Cong while taking light casualties on- ly eight miles northeast of Sai- gon, a spokesman said. In another action 48 miles southwest of Saigon.

Fulton awl they have two daughters, Mrs. Dorothea Meloy and Mrs. Jane Judy of Toledo, Ohio. Mrs. Meloy and her husband, the Rev. Robert H. Meloy, are United Presbyterian missionar- ies. They and their family re- turned to the Sudan today after a three-month leave apent at Ally. Jehu M. Urey Clearfield. Dr. John F. Kennard, above, recently returned to his native Clearfield after several years and is now associated with Dr. Dorothea McClure Gilmore in the practice of pathology at the Clearfield Hospital.

Second St., graduated from Clearfield High School in 1949, completed his premedical edu- cation at Grove City College in 1953, and received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in 1957.

Bennett, Temple Massive Sludge Dam Kills Most Kettle Creek fish LOCK HAVEN A massive sludge dam. loosened by heavy rains, slid 18 miles down Kettle Creek, killing an estimated 95 per cent of the creek's fish over the weekend, a fish warden said yesterday. The sludge, traveling as one solid mass, made the 18-mile stretch from a drilling rig near Cross Fork, Potter County, to a watershed two miles from the Alvin R. Bush Dam, Clinton County, in 36 hours. Bass, whitefish, mullets, suck- ers, minnows, crayfish and other baitfish and fish bait were kill- ed. Some trout also were found but most of the stream's trout population had migrated to trib- utaries nearer the headwaters during the warm weather and low-water period. The fish warden, Lloyd Wil- son, said the sludge is suspend- ed across the width of the creek for three m'iles. He said the sludge was an accumulation of soil and sediment brought up by the drilling operation near Cross Fork. Wilson added that he expected it to settle in the lake before Fair and cool tonight, low 42 to 50. Thursday sunny and warmer.
