News in Brief: Aerial Landing Craft. U.S. Marines demonstrate new tactics of amphibious warfare. Helicopters land entire platoon of troops in new techniques to offset threat of atomic retaliation. Marines board helicopters, fly to field where they are dropped off -- in front of spectators, at least one with binoculars. Odd situation to have an audience. (This training looks like preparation for what is always seen in 'Nam combat footage.) Innovation in warfare.
