(CP Wirepholo) to repel North thrust A f AV> Presi- dent Nixon lias ruled out for now the reintroduction of United .Slates ground forces to repel the North Vietnamese thrust into South Vietnam. But he is holding open his option of send- ing of U.S. planes against North Vietnamese targets. The president's stance was re- ported by reliable sources after Nixon and his top advisers held an urgent round of conferences Monday to ponder ways of countering the strongest Com- munist push since Tot of 3DG3. As Hie strategy sessions con- tinue, administration spokesmen are stressing that turning back the Communist offensive is a "South Vietnamese operation." Presidential press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler used that phryse twice at a briefing Mon- day when he reported that Nixon is "watching the situation very closely." Ziegler also cited as ''totally reflective of Hie over-all admin- istration view" a statement by stale department spokesman Robert .1- McCloskey that the North Vietnamese attack was Printed only good news, U.S. newspaper folds SACRAMENTO.

Nixon said months ago that the U.S. ground-combat role has ended, and his reluctance to send U.S. troops into battle now fits with his expressed confi- dence that South Vietnam i s prepared to withstand the long- oxpected Communist offensive.

MONTREAL fCP) Two dy- namite bombs exploded witliin 15 seconds early today, ripping apart the Cuban trade commis- sion offices and killing a Cuban guard. The trade commission offices, on the lop floor of a 12-storey building on north-end Metropoli- tan Boulevard, are across the city from the downtown Cuban consulate. Killed in the quick succession of explosions was Sergio Perez. 25, a Cuban national employed .1 guard at the offices. Four other Cuban guards, armed with revolvers and semi-automatic rifles, tried lo prevent police from entering the offices. They were later ar- reslcd- The dynamite bombs shat- tered tiie lop southeast corner of the building and showered the street below with concrete and glass. KK.CAU, JULY INCIDENT Last July, an incendiary de- vice described by a police dem- olition expert as a "childish ar- rangement of a fire Vionib1' was found ont.sJde the trade commis- sion office. A member of the Cuban delegation discovered it outside a door lo the stairwell and kicked il two storeys down. Police said at the time that if was so crude there was no dan- ger of it exploding. Four fire bombs wore thrown at the Soviet consulate in down- town Montreal Jan. 23, causing about damage. One em- ployee was injured extinguish- iiim a fire at the building's front door. The incident involving foreign governments are a twist from the usual rash of bombings that have hit Montreal almost an- nually since the early 1960s. But the early bombings were gener- ally associated with terrorist groups seeking the violent sepa- ration of Quebec from the rest of Canada. At Ottawa Cuban Ambasa- dor Jose Fernandez de Cassio today called on C. M, Drury, acting external affair minis- ter, to "inform him of the sit- uation" regarding (he bombing of the Cuban Iradc commis- sion office in Montreal. However, an external affairs department, spokesman said that so far as he was aware, the ambassador made no kind of protest. SECOND IXCIDKNT The bombing was the second incident in less than a day in- volving Cuban property in Can- flda. Earlier Monday, an explo- sive device was found near the Cuban embassy in Ottawa. Po- lice said it was the second such device found near Cuban property in that city in the last two weeks. After the package w a s re- moved by military experts, po- lice reported that there was no detonator on the device. Two pieces of paper with Miami, Fla., written on them were found near the scene, Ot- tawa police said. Many activist Cuban refugee organizations are reported to located in the .Miami Area.
