The allied commands estimated that 298 North Vietnamese were killed in massive U.S. and South Vietnamese air attacks and ground fighting Saturday and Sunday at half a dozen points south of the demilitarized zone. South Viet- namese headquarters said its forces captured 27 heavy weapons and 44 rifles from the battlefields. • Six South Vietnamese soldiers were reported killed and 53 wounded in the fighting. No American ground troops were involved, the U.S. Command said. • The enemy s&eUed~DanNanag~\early today for the third time in nine days. Three 122mm rockets apparently meant for thei)a Nang Air Base smashed into half a dozen homes near the base shortly after midnight, killing three Vietnamese civilians and wounding 10, the' South Vietnamese Command said. Three more of the 100-pound missiles fell inside the air base but caused no casualties or damage, the U.S. Com- mand said. The U.S. Air Force has a wing of F4 Phantom fighter bombers at Da Nang flying bombing raids against the Ho Chi Minh trail. Enemy gunners also bombarded allied positions just below the DMZ for the 17th successive day. About 10 mortar shells hit U.S. troops stationed 4% miles south of the zone, and the U.S. Command said casualties were light, with at least one American killed. At the other end of the country in the Mekong delta, the U.S. Contmand said American helicopter gunships and light assault planes made two attacks during the night on a sampan convoy carrying an estimated 300 troops. The command said at least 11 sampans were destroyed aiid 22 of the enemy troops killed. The attacks were carried out in darkness six hours and six miles apart. LOS ANGELES (AP) -v A \jetliner carrying £8 persons cartwheeled \like a shooting star\ into a mountain region and exploded after a collision with a Marine jet fighter. The only known survivor was one of the two crewmen aboard the military plane. The Sunday night crash of the Hughes Air West DC9 was the worst civilian plane disaster in Calif ofnia^ history..And it was the first crash in the United States of a scheduled airliner in more than a year. The radar interception officer of the Marine F4 Phantom jet parachuted to safety after the in-flight collision east of here. He Was the only reported survivor, but a helicopter pilot later reported sighting a parachute which he said he believed to be that of the pilot of the F4. It was sighted near the wreck of the fighter plane. Nine bodies were spotted in the wreckage of the twin-engine airliner, which crashed into' a deep gorge in two pieces and was still smoldering hours after the disaster. Wreckage was spread over a mile- square, tree-studded area.\ Fire officials and sheriff's deputies who flew oyer the wreckage before darkness fell said they were convinced no one aboard the DC9 could have sur- vived. - A thick fog prevented sheriff's search and rescue teams from climbing down a cliff to the airliner or reaching the fighter during the Sight. The gorge is- too narrow to land a helicopter, : officials, .s\ai8? '-•--' - - The erash f occurred\ over the moun- tainous Van Tassel Canyon area of Angeles National Forest. Authorities described the region as \the most rugged area in Los Angeles County and perhaps in California.\ The nearest inhabited area is the town of Duarte, about five miles from the crash site and 25 miles east of Los Angeles. The Ah- West airliner, Flight 706 carrying 43 passengers and a five-man crew, had taken off from Los Angeles International Airport only 18 minutes before the collision. It was en route to Salt Lake City, Boise and Lewiston, Idaho, and Pasco, Wash. The F4 was flying from Fallon Air Force Base in Nevada to its home base at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station-near suburban Santa Mitchell Is Expected To Run Nixon's Re-Election Campaign WASHINGTON (AP)-^ Hedging like a \\' ... A C Legislature Struggles To Wrap Up Session WASHINGTON (AP) — Hedging like a good lawyer, Atfy. Gen. John N. Mitchell says he probably will manage President Nixon's re-election campaign next year. Throwing together a string of caveats that might have choked even Clarence Darrow, Mitchell went further in an Associated Press interview toward dis- closing his plans that in any previous public statement. Actually, Mitchell concedes between puffs on.his everpresent pipes,, he would prefer to be back on Wall Street where he was aaacknowledged expert on state and municipal bonds. But his future, the attorney general maintains \depends entirely bn the President and his wishes in the matter.\ After 2V2 years as the nation's top lawyer and administration strong man whose duties reach far beyond the Justice Department, Mitchell professes, to have no liking for the power that many outside the Nixon fold yearn for. \You're always faced with decisions,\ he says. \You have to have a strong back, a weak mind and a cast-iron stomach.\ Washington has taken its toll of Mit- chell. Since agreeing to run Nixon's 1968 campaign, he has worked long hours and made many hard decisions. Some of them, his critics say, justly warrant charges of political repression by-the Justice Department and merit for him the nicknames \Inquisitor Gen- eral,\ \Old Stoneface\ and \Mr. Law and Order.\ But John N. MitcheU is not without a dry sense- of humor. After a call from the President had interrupted the interview, after Mitchell had again settled at his desk and lit his pipe, a photographer entered. Would he pose with. Buttons, the Mitchell toy poodle who was in the attorney general's office waiting for a trip to the veterinarian? '\'Hell no, not after what Bobby Ken- nedy's dog did to the rug out there,\ Mitchell laughed. \No thank you.\ Questions and the attorney general's answers: Q. You've said on a number of oc- casions that you have not been asked to run President Nixon's 1972 re-election campaign and that you \sure as hell aren't I going to volunteer.\ Do you expect to be asked? A Well that's so far in the future that I. don'Uknow, but I think there's a possibility of it, and there's a possibility that the President may go to places whee there's better talent. Q. If the President asks you, will you serve? A. I would assess the circumstances at the particular time, to' see what the organizational structure was,' and who was going to be involved and on what basis, and assuming that there were not circumstances existing then that detracted from the effort, why I might carry out his wishes. Antiwar Lobbying Begins WASHINGTON (AP) -\Professional religious and civil rights leaders open a week of antiwar lobbying here today in hopes, of wooing 24 senators whose votes could mean passage of an amendmentto withdraw U.S. funding of the ; Vietnam war by Dec. 31. Their chances are considered slim by most observers. The group, known as the. Lobby of Americans, also is sponsoring radio and newspaper ads aimed at stirring pressure by constituents of senators who have not pledged support of the amend- ment. The week-long campaign was to open Hatfield amendment last year when it was defeated 55 to 39. Five others are freshmen who have spoken in favor of President Nixon's war- policies and one is a senator who neither voted nor stated a position last year. A showdown vote is expected on the amendment this month but most ob- servers feel the lobbying will not change . the outcome. \I don't think any debate or any pressure is going to change a single vote,\ said Senate. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana. \They've got their minds made up.\ The Lobby for Americans en- with former Sens. Joseph Clark, D-Pa., compasses delegations from dozens, of charles E. Goodell, R-N.Y., Ernest Gruening, D-AIaska, and Stephen Young, P-Ohio, holding a neWs con- ference and rally on the Capitol's east steps. The lobbying efforts are aimed at- lining up votes for the Senate's revived and revised McGovern-Hatfield amendment. Thameasure was defeated last year despite a similar organized campaign. Eighteen of the 24 senators targeted for special pressure are among those who voted against the McGoverri- businessmen's, civil rights, en- vironmental, senior citizens, church-and women's organizations. One delegation is from a 4-H club. WEATHER VARIABLE CLOUDINESS, HUMID THROUGH . Tuesday with scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms bath days.

(AP) — The -clocks were stopped - in the Senate and Assembly chambers today .as the legislature struggled for final ad- journment of its 1971 session,, still grappling with the New York City fiscal problem/ Working right through the weekend, the lawmakers ordered the official clocks stopped on Sunday afternoon just before'they reached the 3 o'clock deact line that had been set in their ad^ journment resolutions. - They continued debating and passirig bills, while Republican arid Democratic leaders worked with Gov. RockefeUer off the floor to nail down votes for a $625- million fiscal package for New York City. Information filtering back from the Republican high command was that, unless New York City Democrats pledged their votes for the plan, the leg- islature would adjourn today and return in special session to tackle the city problem again. . Finally, around 9:30 p.m., Minority Leader Joseph Zaretzki arose in the Senate and declared: \I'm tired arid don't want to work all night.\ The Senate then recessed until 10 a.m. today. At 10:45 p.m.- the Assembly followed suit, recessing until 9 a.rii. During the busy weekend session, which saw the legislature remain in session until midnight Saturday, there • were these major developments: -*• Both houses voted Saturday night for a Republican drawn plan to supply $33 million in additional state aid for parochial schools in the present fiscal year. The Assembly also voted for repeal of. the State Constitution's Blaine Amendment restriction on church school aid, but Senate Majority Leader Earl W. Brydges said the action was pointless and would not be duplicated in his house. — At the saihe time, Brydges brought to the floor of the Senate a bill he was sponsoring to repeal the state's liberalized abortion law. But Brydpes conceded that hi£ own action-was merely a gesture, because there were not suf- ficient votes to pass the bill. So he \starred\ the bill — a procedural move that put it in limbo until next year. — Sunday night's session of. the Assembly wgs enlivened and disrupted by a snouting match between Sen. Waldaba Stewart, R-Brooklyn, and an assistant sergeant-at-arms who brusquely refused to admit Stewart to the Asseinbly floor during a roll call. The incident arose during an unsuccessful attempt by Westchester arid Nassau Republicans to override Rockefeller's veto of a bill that would have prevented construction of a bridge across Long Island Sound, from .Oyster Bay to Rye. — At Sunday's session, the two houses also overrode protests from Newburgh area lawmakers and gave approval to Rockefeller's plan for ,.&' $30^milli6n expansion of the Stewart airport. — Funds for a start on the airport project were included in the annual supplemental budget bill, unveiled Sunday afternoon. The measure, a catch-all spending vehicle introduced to ward the close of each annual session, would authorize $23.6 million in cash outlays during the present fiscal year. Among other things, it includes $144,000 for increased expense allowances for chairinen and ranking minority members of Senate arid Assembly committees. It was revealed-also that Brydges. and Assembly Speaker Perry B. .Duryea had decided against writing into the sup- plemental bill their plan for raising the annual expense allowances of all legislators by $2,000. The reason was that some lawmakers had .objected to raising their own aUowarices in the. present climate Of /State fiscal austerity. MOSCOW (AP) - Soyuz 11 linked up with the orbiting scientific station Salute today, and the \three cosmonauts from the Soyuz boarded the other satellite, Tass announced. •, - ; \A Soviet manned orbital scientific station is functioning in space,\ id Dozens of persons in Duante who witnessed, the crash said there was an explosion^ \like a sonic boom\ almost ifiimediatgly after the two planes (Same together. Fiery debris showered down and scattered over a wide area. Minor brush fires were touched off by the flaming wreckage. The two. planes separated as they crashed, several eye-witnesses said, and the airliner tumbled end over end \like a shooting star.\ \I heard a boom and saw two flaming objects going behind- the. mountain,\ said Jim Frisbie of JXuarte, \it exploded again when itwas behind the mountain.\ The jet fighter fell at aft. Bliss, about a mile from the jetliner. The area is about 3,000 feet above sea level. The Federal Aviation Administration said there was good visibility at the time of the collision, at an altitude of about 12,000 feet. • The airliner was on its specific flight route and the Marine F4 was flying under visual rules, the FAA said. A spokesman said air controllers saw • the two planes oh radar coming toward each other just before the crash. He said there was no radio transmissions from either plane before the crash. Neither Air West nor the Marine Corps would comment on how the planes could have collided. The surviving Marine, crewman, 1st Lt. Christopher Schiess, 24, of Salem, Ore., landed on a fire road and was picked up by^sheriff's deputies who to6k A •him to Santa- Teresita Hospital in Duarte. He was listed in good condition with leg and head injuries. The plane's pilot was not identified by the Marines. Officials at Hughes Air West identified the pilot of the DC9 as Capt. Theodore Nicolay, 50: The other crew members were: eo-pilpt, Price Bruher; 49; stew» ardesses Helena Koskimies, 30, Patricia Shelton, 28, and Joan Pluylaar, 34, all of Seattle, Wash. It was the first fatal crash in the United States of a scheduled airliner since an in-flight collision between an Allegheny Airlines DC9 and a student pi- lot's plane left 83 dead near Shelbyville, Ind., on Sept. 9, 1969. The regular airlines statistics does not include the two' football charter flights that crashed with a heavy loss of life last year. \The cosmonauts entered the station Salute through a passage,\ the official Soviet news agency-said. \The task of delivering the crew to an orbital station by a transport ship has been solved, for the first time,\ It reported that the equipment aboard Salute was functioning normally after seven weeks of unmanned orbital flight.. \The cosmonauts have started' to fulfill their flight program,\ the an- nouncement said. It added that the joined SaluteSoyuz \cosmic system-' Has a total weight of more than 25 tons. SoyuzTl was sent into orbit Sunday to do the job that Soyuz 10 failed to ac4 cpmpiish, send oile' or more men into Salute to carry put further experiments in the Soviet program to establish the first permanent space station. Soyuz 10 cruised in tandem with the laboratory for 5V2 hours in April, but there was no transfer of personnel. Lt. Col. Georgi Dobrovolsky, 43-yea'r- old commander of Soyuz ll, iiiade,a flight correction Sunday to bring his ship's path, within 2.5 miles of Saluted Tass said only one further small cat* rectjpn was needed to swing in and dock witlf the big unmanned space laboratory. There was no indication how long the cosmonauts would remain aboard Salute of when they would return to earth. ' Salute, however, is not the permanent space station that is the goal of the present Soviet program. Salute, laun- ched April 19, is orbiting too close to the earth andeventtially will burn up-when-it drops into the; earth's atn>6sphefe. '• - Suf success, for the^oyuz ll mission \ will be*anoffier sfep toward a pernianent : station with a higher orbit that will circle the earth indefinitely while alternate crews come and go. Tass said Soyuz 11 docked with Salute ; in two stages. First it was brought automatically within 100 yards of the satellite, and then the cosmonauts - brought the two together. ' - . The linkup was accomplished at 10:45 a.m., or 3:45 a.m. EDT. . \Solved for the first time was the. • engineering and technical tesk of delivering a crew to an orbiting scien- tific station by a transport ship,\ said Tass. .. • It reported that after the two vehicles docked, they -. were \rigidly - mechanically coupled and their elec- trical and hydraulic communications . were connected, \Then the cosmonauts cheeked the air tighteness of the compartments and ffie -. station's onboard* systems, the parameters of the microclimate in the compartments of the docked spacecraft, ~ppeiied the hatches of the airtight • passage linking them aiid entered tfie scientific station through ife\ ppbovolsky and his test engineer,: -- Viktor Patsayev, 37, are making their- first flights as cosmonauts. Flight engineer Vladislav Volkov is a veteran - of the'Soyuz 7 mission in October 1969, when the 35-year-old engineer made 8Q earth orbits. - Moscow television, in a film of the.: launch, showed the cosmonauts inside ; their cabin, one of two in the craft. The crew -members were seen lying on their- backs their hands folded in front of them. The Soyuz 11 commander was 'a • Jightef pilot when chosen for the Russian\ space program. He was turned down by.
