Despite her grief, Mrs. King left the city Monday and flew to Memphis where she led a march in support of sanitation workers who are striking for higher wages and an end to the alleged discrimination that is directed against them. It was this march that cost King his He. King had led a protest march in Memphis a week before his death, but it erupted in violence. This, he felt, cast doubt .on his abili ty to lead a peaceful protest, so he returned to the city to le'ad another march the one his wife finally finished for him Monday.

Oscar Davis of the U.S. 1st . Cavlary Division said Monday North Vietnamese troops trying to escape an allied jug gernaut in the Khe Sanh area were "pretty well doomed." The U.S. command said 60 Communists had been killed in a week of fighting and that the toll was rising. As Davis spoke from his headquarters inside Khe Sanh, about 1,000 South Vietnamese troops moving out of the fortress under heavy U.S. artillery cover pushed toward Lang Vei to recapture the "Green Beret" outpost overrun by North Vietnamese tanks and inantry trhee months ago. The South Vietnamese col umns moving toward Lang Vei three miles southwest of Khe Sanh reported killing 80North Vietnamese, finding the bodies of 71 more and taking five prisoners. The fall of Lang Vei in early January opened a gaint hole in allied defenses along the Laotian border, and permitted Communist commanders to pour thousands of troops and tons of war material into South Vietnam for the siege of Khe Sanh. The siege began Jan. 21, and the a 1 1 i e s finally lifted dt Saturday with Opera tion Pegasus. Through midnight U.S. losses in Operation Pegasus were placed at 59 killed and 427 wounded. This included 31 Army men killed and 28 Marines killed, and 162 Army men wounded and 265 Marines wounded. The push against the Com munist survivors of Pegasus coincided with an intensification. said during an appearance on XBC's "Today" Show. "We hope he'll be under ar rest quite soon. The focus is sharpening and we are quite close, we think, but that depends on how some of the leads we have develop," Clark explained. Piecing together the crime, police theorize that the assassin stood in a slimy bathtub in a flophouse across the street from King's hotel and rested the murder weapon the window sill. The woman who runs the flophouse described the suspect as a neatly-dressed young man an unlikely can didate for the $8.50-a-week room he rented. It had been publicized in advance that King would stay in the Lorraine Hotel-Motel while he was in Memphis last Thursday to lead a march for striking sanitation workers, but this information wasn't enough. The Lorraine is a large, many sided structure and in order to map any sort of a plan, the killer also had to know King's room number. A striking ooint in the in- Sunday, vestigation is that the windows of the rooming house on the side facing the Lorraine cannot " be seen from the . street, the view being blocked by a high wall and a growth of peach trees. On the other hand, there are several other old hotels easily in sight of the Lorraine, but further away. Authorities believe the killer parked his car, possibly a white Mustang, directly in front of the rooming house and walked quickly to it, only to find that someone had park ed too close to him and that he couldn't squeeze through between the bumpers. Instead, police' theorize, he had to walk around the second car, and in so doing, spotted one of the many police cars that were speeding to the scene. He ducked into the doorway of an amusements company, police said, and was seen by the operator of the store, Guy Canipe, who quickly moved to the rear of the building. "I saw him drop the rifle, but I didn't go out," said Camipe. "If you had seen a man drop a rifle in your doorway, what would you have done." TOKYO (UPI) North Viet nam repeated its warning Monday that proposed Washington-Hanoi peace con tacts must involve n o bargaining" but only discussion on a total halt to U.S. bombing and "all other acts of war." Radio Hanoi said a North Vietnam delegate on the am bassadorial level was willing to meet with U.S. represen tatives at Phnom Penh, Cam bodia, or "any other mutually agreeable city." Prince Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia promptly announced Hanoi had "chosen" his neutral capital as the site. He did not clarify whether he was referred to the broadcast or if he had had a direct request from Hanoi. Radio Hanoi said an un conditional halt to the air at tacks was a prerequisite to any formal full scale peace conference. The broadcast, involving in terviews of North Vietnamese leaders by Charles Coll ingwood, correspondent for the Columbia Broadcasting System, was monitored in Tokyo amid Communist claims of total victory. Diplomats in London said Peking was putting heavy pressure on the North Viet namese regime to continue the battle "to the bitter end." Pek ing insisted military victory was near for the Communists, the diplomats said.
