The Radio Hanoi message from "John A. Young, captured U.K. serviceman against the war in was described us a U.S. soldier's view on the practice of dis- enchanted soldiers tossing gren- ades into quarters of superiors. There have been several such cases in South Vietnam, some resulting in deaths. It referred to one reward being offered for the death of a lieutenant-colonel and said: "It's a well-known fact that the front-line troopers are fed up with the war and have placed bounties on other Gting Ho officers and NCOs in a large number of units in South Viet- nam, with bounties ranging from to to the man who rubs them out." Plan meeting OTTAWA (CP) Environ- ment Minister Jack Davis is to hold meetings in Washington Friday with Russell Train, head of the president's council on en- vironmental quality, and Wil- liam Rucklehaus, head of the environmental protection agency.
