The mice plague reached its peak iii December, a summer month in" the Southern Hemi- sphere, with hordes of thou- sands of the rodents marching on the eastern Australia grain belt of acres. Farmers hoped for a severe Australian winter to wipe out the plague. But while heavy rains early in the season killed many mice, others took refuge 'in deep burrows and found sup- plies of food in the warmth of storage shelters and silos. Farmers throughout the grain belt reported large numbers of mice gnawing steadily into their winter crops. In the "rice bowl" in southwestern New South Wales, the area hardest hit by the plague, the mice have sur- vived in the stubble of the pre- vious summer crop.

Immunization of Indians and Eskimos by federal authorities began seven weeks ago, but it's up to each province to handle its own immunization programs, Mr. Munro said.

It said loss of life was ex- pected to be high. Forty-five bodies were seen floating in the river. The number of persons in the convoy was not immediately known.

Favors Coalition Government NEW DELHI, India (AP) Mrs. Nguyen Thi Binh, foreign minister of the Viet Cong's provisional revolutionary gov- ernment said Wednesday she fa- vors formation of a broad-based coalition government in South Vietnam that could even include some members of the present regime headed by President Nguyen Van Thieu. "We are ready to co-operate with all persons who favor peace, independence and neu- J trality regardless of their politi- cal tendencies and sympathies and their past Mrs. Binh told a news conference. "I think that in the present regime, apart from the handful of ringleaders, such as Nguyen Van Thieu, and Nguyen Cao Ky, who are fervently opposed to the ardent aspirations of the South Vietnamese people for peace, independence and neu- trality, there are quite a num- ber .of people who favor these objectives."

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) Afro-Asian countries went ahead today with efforts to pre- vent the supply of arms to South Africa despite earlier fears of a British and French veto in the United Nations Secu- rity Council. Informed sources said today Sierra Leone, Burundi, Nepal and Syria will join in sponsoring a formal resolution of condem- nation which Zambia will intro- duce in the council. The resolution condemns all sales of arms to South Africa j and calls for strict observance of a seven-year-old UN embargo on trade to the white-ruled re- public. Despite earlier African threats of a mandatory ban, fears of a British and French veto of such a resolution led to modifications in the text ap- proved by African and Asian strategists Tuesday. State Challenges War Entry WASHINGTON (AP) The state of Massachusetts urged the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday to rule that partici- pation of the United States in the Vietnam war is unconstitu- tional. In a suit that named Defence Secretary Melvin H. Laird as defendant, the state said the ex- ecutive branch of the federal government is acting illegally in committing American troops to the Southeast Asia war. The plea for a ruling was au- thorized by the state legislature in April when it approved a bill challenging the federal govern- ment's authority to conduct un- declared wars such as Vietnam. The central legal point the state is pressing is that, without a declaration of war by Congress, the president is acting unconsti- tutionally when he sends troops into Vietnam to fight.
