SAIGON (I)-North Vietnamese
and Viet Cong troops tried to lure
allkid forced out from their de-
fense of Saigon yesterday, perhaps
in prelude to a large-scale Com-.
m nlst" drive against the capital.
U.S. intelligence sources said the
earliest the Communist could
mlount an attack against the capi-
tal was mid-Seplember, provided
it scored successes over allied
wfces In the outlying areas.
The U.S. Command announced
thiat American combat casualties
soared last week to the highest
level in the past three months. It
said 408 American troops were
killed and 2,513 were wounded in
the secon4 week of fighting that
followed a two-month lull in the
ground war.
Communist forces tried unsuc-
cessfully to throw the allied de-
fense of Saigon off balance when
they shattered the ground war lull
Aug. 18 with heavy offensive along
the Cambodian border northwest
of the capital. Intelligence officers
say the Commhunists hoped t
force the allies into pulling troops
out of the Saigon defense ring.
More than 2,000 American and
South Vietnamese infantrymen'
launched a drive into the Bbi Loi
Woods, 30 miles northwest of Sai-
gon, yesterday, in search of an
enemy force believed bent on up-
setting the allies' defenses.,
First reports said there vwas no
contact with the force, made up
of elements of two regiments from
the Viet Cong's 5th Division. The
Viet Cong could use the woods
as a springboard for attacks on
allied installations and towns
along the defensive line leading to
Saigon. These include the 25th
Sen. Dir Sen
reveals plot:
a:a
assassination
WASHINGTON (P)-Sen. Ever-
ett M. Dirksen of Illinois disclosed
yesterday that, he was notified by
Uficial sources three times in
recent months that attempts on
his life were planned. '
He was given special protection
on each occasion, Drksen said.
He declined to tell newsmen
how the plans were discovered or
who was said to have been in-
volved.
Dirksen, the Senate minority
leader, said that, "I was supposed
to have been assassinated in my
office" late last inonth.:
iHe' said $he information came
from the Federal Bureau of In-
vestlgation, which assigned agents

LAGOS, Nigeria (P)-Plans for
a daylight mercy airlift to starv-
ing civilians in secessionist Biafra
verged near collapse yesterday
amid controversy over where Red
Cross planes could land supplies.
Federal troops reported they!
had raised the Nigerian flag over
Aba, the largest of three towns
held by the Ibo rebels. Biafra
acknowledged federal forces had
broken through Aba's defenses.
Diplomatic sources here said no
Red Cross planes took off as had
been scheduled yesterday from
Fernando Po, the Spanish island
off the eastern Nigeria coast where
relief supplies are stockpiled.
Nigeria's military government
had agreed to allow Red Cross
transports to shuttle food and
medicine from the island to a
Biafran airstrip, called Annabelle,
for 10 days starting yesterday.
The federal authorities had pre-
viously threatened to shoot down
planes flying into Biafraa.
Biafra welcomed the agreement,
but broadcast a proposal yester-
day that the Red Cross planes
land instead at Uturu, a village
near Obilago airstrip in central
Biafra. The Nigerians have re-
jected Obilago as a landing spot
because it would block the advance
of federal troops on the head-
quarters of Biafra's leader, Lt.
Col. C. Odumegwu Ojukwu, 25
miles from the airstrip.
"We will not change our stand,"
a Nigerian military spokesman
said of the latest Biafran pro-
posal.
August Lindt, International Red
Cross coordinator for West Africa,
was reported in Biafra trying to
talk Biafran leaders into accept-
ing the Nigerian proposal. He was
to fly to Fernando Po Thursday
night, but diplomatic sources said
he might return to Lagos if the
warring sides canot agree on a
landing site.
Lindt got the Nigerians to agree
to daylight relief flights after the
Red Cross had threatened to defy
federal government warnings
against flying into Biafra. The
Nigerians had contended that the
opening of an air corridor to Bia-
fra would make it easier for the
rebels to smuggle in arms..
The Red Cross and other wel-
fare organizations have been
making unauthorized night flights
across Nigerian territory into the
secessionist state, but these fall
far short of meeting the needs of
thousands of starving Biafrans.

These same intelligence officers
said the advancing enemy units
are not trying to break through
to Saigon, but merely harass al-
lied installations in the outlying
areas. Any large-scare attack'
against the capital would be waged
by 18 main force and local Viet
Cong battalions around the capi-
tal.
A Viet Cong reconnaissance
force was repulsed by South Viet-
