Accidental Bombing, Shellings Kill Marines By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) U.S. military headquar- ters reported today that an acci- dental bombing of U.S. Marines by a Marine plane and two acci- dental shellings of American infantrymen by their own artil- lery killed six U.S. servicemen and wounded 23 others. The artillery shells landed on units of the 196th Light Infantry Brigade in Tay Ninh Province near the Cambodian border. One shelling at a.m. to- day killed two infantrymen and wounded 16, an official spokes- man said. Several hours later, two more rounds of 105mm ar- tillery killed one infantryman and wounded three, the spokes- man added. Both artillery incidents took place a few miles from Tay Ninh City, 40 miles northwest of Saigon. In the accidental bombing, a U.S. Marine F4 Phantom fight- er-bomber accidentally dropped a 500-pound bomb Sunday on Marines dug in during Opera- tion Prairie. The incident oc- curred in the northernmost province of South Viet Nam a few miles south of the demili- tarized zone. Scranton's Rusk To Confer Credit Bill With Gromyko On Action HitWef Peace Talks Senator Soys Much Had Been Completed On Compromise By PAUL ZDINAK HARRIS3URG (AP) A member of a Senate subcom- mittee trying to reach a com- promise on a consumer credit protection bill said today that Gov. Scranton has "pulled the rug out from under us." Sen. Benjamin R. Donolow, one of two Democrats on the five member subcommittee, said the panel had been making "a great deal" of progress be- fore Scranton elaborated on the proposal last week. "We had arrived at a com- promise of 15 per cent interest and had reached two or three other compromises before Scranton stepped Donolow, D-Philadelphia, said. The controversy over a con- sumer credit bill, smoldering since March, flamed anew Wed- nesday when Scranton urged at his news conference that the legislature adopt a bill similar to the California act. "The California act will not get Donolow said.

(AP) Secretary of State Dean Rusk arrives in New York today for talks with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko and others on the Viet Nam war, but prospects for progress toward the peace table ap- pear slight. Gromyko arrived Sunday talking a hard line against "forces of aggression" which in Soviet parlance the Americans in Viet Nam. U.N. Secretary-General U Thant in the introduction to his annual report said chances of fruitful international coopera- tion had been sei'ously im- paired by "the deepening crisis over Viet Nam" and "an in- creasing intransigence and dis- trust among governments and peoples." Rusk will spend a week in New York meeting foreign min- isters attending the 21st annual session of the U.N. General As- sembly, which opens Tuesday. He will see Gromyko Thursday. Gromyko will make a Soviet policy speech in the Assembly's general debate Friday. In a statement issued on his arrival he said: "The peoples are expecting the United Nations to adopt de- cisions which would erect a re- liable barrier before the forces of aggression and safeguard the freedom and sovereign rights of the peoples." U.S. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg indicated that Rusk would ask Sromyko to help get North Viet Narn into peace ne- gotiations.

He urged Catholics every- where to join in a special "day of prayer" Oct. 4 the first anniversary of his peace pil- grimage to the United Nations in New York and announced he would preside at a ceremony that day in St. Peter's Basilica. In fourth encyclical of his Thc U.S. Command said three Marines were killed and four wounded. A spokesman said the air strike was called in by the Marines and was under direc- tion of a forward air controller. He said the Phantom jet made one bombing run 600 feel in front of Marine positions, then the ground unit called for strikes 300 feet closer to them. The forward controller marked the target with a smoke grenade. The bomb was dropped in the designated target area, inflicting the Marine casu- alties, the spokesman reported. The mistaken bombings over- shadowed war developments in which U.S. planes kept up crip- pling pressure on targets in North Viet Nam and sparred with Communist MIG jets for the third straight day. In the onl> major action reported in the South, Marines fought North Vietnamese regulars just below the demilitarized zone. The last major bombing error in Viet Nam took place Aug. '26 when U.S. planes dropped na- palm on a unit of the "U.S. 1st Infantry Division. "They killed three infantrymen and wounded 19. There were a series of other accidental bombings on allied troops and Vietnamese civilians during July and August. Gen. William C. Westmoreland, com- mander of U.S. forces in Viet Nam, appointed a military re- view board and ordered a full- scale investigation of firing pro- cedures and control.

Please Turn to Page 6, Col. 1 By WILLIAM F. LEE Progress Staff Writer (First of Five Articles) The United States Department of Agr'cul- ture recently released a film which hailed the unexcelled status of "Agriculture U. S. A The film noted America's swelling agricul- tural abundance, its bulging surplus with which it is feeding the hungry nations of the world, its technological advances in the last half-century, which surpass all the mechanical advancements ot the first 150 years of the Re- public. The film pointed out that one Ameri- can farmer provides food tor 35 people, and that four out of 10 people are employed in pro- fessions related to agriculture. But the film did not call attention to some other statistics about American agriculture: That two-thirds of the nation's farm people have moved away from the farm in the last 20 years; that young people are leaving the farm at an amazing rate: that it takes about in capital to start d mildly profiiable farm today; that one-quarter of American farms produce about 85 per cent of the na- tion's farm goods, that the average j parly farm income is about w'th one-half of the farms bringing in a yearly income of 500; and that our surplus is vanishing as fast as world hunger is increasing.
