New Raid Was Retaliation
For Red Attack On Billet
(See Related Stories on Page 3)
WASHINGTON m The United
States struck back Thursday at
what it called murderous aggres
sions and outrages by the Viet
namese Communists and then
clamped silence on future plans.
A White House statement said
this government maintains its de
sire to "avoid spreading the con
flict" but felt compelled to attack
military targets in North Viet
Nam in response to "further di
rect provocation" by the Hanoi
Red regime. - -.. -
The statement announcing the
s third reprisal air strike of this
week cited the Viet Cong terrorist
bombing in which Americans were
killed in their billet as well as
. "assassinations and ambushes in
volving South Vietnamese civil
and military officials."
Reports from Saigon said about
150 U. S. and South Vietnamese
warplanes,, striking from land,
! and sea, smashed at targets in
North Viet Nam. Four carrier
based U. S. Navy planes and one
pilot were lost.
The White House described the
targets as military facilities used
tfor the training and infiltration of
Viet Cong personnel into south
Press Secretary George E.
Reedy said President Johnson
ordered the air strikes after an
emergency meeting with the Na
tional Security Council Wednes
The President went to bed
around midnight, Reedy said, but
was up several times during the
night checking on latest develop
ments in the situation.
Reedy said Johnson awoke at
3:30 a.m. and telephoned the
"situation room" a command post
in the White House basement,
asking for the latest reports. Three
more times during the night the
President checked with the com
mand post, Reedy said.
The raid was a thunderous re
sponse to Viet Cong attacks.

J96S State Game
To Be In Raleigh
The Student Government at N. C. State has decided the State
Carolina football game will be played in Raleigh next fall. The
athletic department and administration left the decision of
where to play State's home game up to the students themselves.
Tentative information indicates UNC will receive 4,000 tickets
for the Oct. 9 game in Riddick Stadium. Probably 250 of these
will be complimentary tickets, with the rest to be divided between
UNC students and Carolina fans.
State students will get 4,000 tickets under the plan still to
be approved by the State Student Government, and closed circuit
television will be provided in Reynolds Coliseum. Riddick Stadium
will hold 18,500 spectators. Additional temporary seats may raise
the capacity to almost 20,000. Kenan Stadium will seat 45,000.
Seating for UNC fans will range from the 35-yard line to the
goal line. About 500 seats will be in the end zone.

Astronomy Professor Thomas N. Noonan has
been selected to write a textbook on relativity
from the research of his faculty adviser at Cali
fornia Institute of Technology, who was killed in
an automobile accident in 1961.
Noonan the last student to earn a Ph.D.
under Professor Howard P. Robertson was
chosen by the National Science Foundation,
which awarded him $19,575 for the book.
Robertson, a distinguished physicist and mathe
matician, was scientific adviser to the Supreme
Allied Commander in Europe, Gen. A. M. Gruen
ther, from 1954 to 1956. The book, requested by
the Air Force, will be a memorial to him.
Before joining the faculty at Cal Tech, Robert
son taught at Princeton from 1929 to 1947. He
was a consultant to the Secretary of War from
1944 to 1947 and in 1945 was chief of a scientific
intelligence agency for U. S. forces in France.
Noonan, interviewed Thursday in his Phillips
Hall office, said he graded papers for Robertson
as a graduate student in astronomy at Cal Tech.
Noonan said his writing project will require
about two years. His sources will be papers and
notes from a course Robertson taught.
More than 100 Navy jets, tak
ing off from the 7th fleet carriers
Hancock, Ranger and Coral Sea,
struck at Chan Hoa, 50 miles north
of the border and about four miles
northwest of Dong Hoi.
Chap Le, 8.5 miles north of the
border, was the target of 28 propeller-driven
bombers and an escort of 20 U. S.
Air Force Fll fighters.
The attacks were made through
antiaircraft fire described as
ranging from light through mod
erate to heavy. The , defen
sive weapons appeared to be rela
tively small 37 mm guns and
50-caliber machine guns.
One of the four Navy planes
lost was a Skyhawk, from the
carrier Ranger, that sought to
set down at Da Nang, a missile
guarded U. S.-Vietnamese air
base 80 miles south of the border.
Its landing gear collapsed and
some of its unspent munitions
exploded. But the pilot escaped.
The crash temporarily closed the
Da Nang runaway.

The resolution, submitted by

Brazil called the intervention a

One article of the bill, asking
all states to "desist from inter

The main article that "all na

military operations in or aid to

The assistant professor of physics said Robert

cosmology, the science of the structure of the
universe. He did work, Noonan said, in both the
"special" and "general" theories of relativity.
Noonan, who received his B.S. in physics at
Cal Tech in 1955, conducted research at the
Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Boston
for a year before coming here in 1962.
The observatory, an agency of the Smithsonian
