Lets Sea And Land Retaliation To Red Attack Soak In WASHINGTON (AP)—U.S. Navy aircraft made a devastating strike at North Vietnamese PT boats and their shore bases today in retaliation for the two attacks on American craft in the Tonkin Gulf this Week. Then the Washington government apparently sat back to let the lesson soak in—if it will soak in— with this stern word from Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara: “Whether this will be ail that is necessary is up to the North Vietnamese.” The account of the explosive U.S. reaction, and the warning, were given by McNamara at a morning news conference, within hours of a somber announcement by President Johnson of the decision to hit back hard in reply to the attacks.    9 In a premidnight address to the nation, Johnson said: "That reply is being given as I speak to you. "Air action is now in execution against gunboats and certain supporting facilities in North Vet Nam which have been used in these hostile operations. “The determination of all Americans to carry out our full commitment to the government and people of South V let Nam will be redoubled by this outrage.” In summary, McNamara reported four North Vietnamese torpedo boat bases heavily damaged and one oil depot wrecked in 6 sorties by planes from the aircraft carriers Ticonderoga and Constellation, with 25 PT boats destroyed or damaged. Four shore bases were turned into rubble. He gave the U.S. cost as two aircraft downed by ground fire and two damaged. The action, McNamara said, took place between noon and 4 or 5 p.m. local time Tuesday. With Vienamese time 13 hours ahead of Washington, that means the bombs and rockets were falling within an hour after Johnson’s report of his decision. Planes doubtless were going aloft as he spoke. Johnson referred to the U.S. reaction as a “positive reply” to the aggression by North Vietnamese PT boats against American naval vessels in international waters.    See RETALIATION, Page 5 Mrs. Swonger Collapses At Crago's Trial By Joe Woerdeman Daily Reporter Staff Writer Mrs. Milton (Nancy) Swonger, 24, collapsed outside the courtroom this morning, following her testimony in the trial of James Moses Crago for the second-degree murder of her husband on March 28.
