U.S. Forces Lose Contact With
Viet Cong After FourDay Battle

SAIGON ()-American infan-
trymen lost contact almost com-
pletely Monday with a tough Viet
Cong jungle force they fought four
days in one of the sharpest clashes
of the war. A U.S. commander said
the outmanned enemy apparently
was dashing across Tay Ninh
Province toward the Cambodian
border, leaving behind more than
400 dead.
But other U.S. units reported
clashes with North Vietnamese
army regulars in two separate
operations near the central coast
and reported killing 51 of them.
In another coastal area, 400 to
500 Communists attacked a 200
man South Vietnamese militia
force but were beaten off by ar-
tillery fire. Officials reported 30
Communist bodies were left be-

hind by the retreating enemy'
units. The government force suf-
fered two wounded.
Air Strikes
In the air war, U.S. planes flew
127 strike missions Sunday against
N o r t h Vietnamese waterways,
bridges, antiaircraft sites, truck
convoys and petroleum dumps.
Red guns brought down a U.S.
Air Force F105 but the pilot was
rescued. It was the 419th U.S.
plane lost in the north.
B-52 bombers from Guam car-
ried out their ninth straight day
of saturation bombing attacks on
suspected North Vietnamese posi-
tions in Kontum Province in the
central highlands in support of
troops of the U.S. 4th Division.
Results of the bombing raids were
not made known in Saigon.

With the Viet Cong disappear-
ance from Tay Ninh, U.S. officials
totaled up the score of the battle:
433 Communist bodies counted;
over all U.S. casualties light, but
heavy in some infantry companies.
The allies do not list their casual-
ties by number for specific battles.
Major Battle
The battle pitted 10,000 Amer-
icans against about 2,000 Viet
Cong. Only scattered sniper ac-
tion was reported Monday.
U.S. officials expressed belief
the American forces-units of the
1st and 25th Infantry divisions
and the relatively green 196th
Light Infantry Brigade-had been
fighting troops of the Viet Cong's
9th Division, long the holder of
the thickly jungled Tay Ninh ter-
rain bordering Cambodia and
about 50 miles northwest of Sai-
"That's our old friend out there,
the 9th," said Brig. Gen. James
Hollingsworth, deputy commander
of the 1st Division at Dau Tieng.
"It looks like he doesn't want
to fight. Since there are so many
of us here, they're probably head-
ing for the Cambodian border.
We'll try to stop them, but you
have to have a rifleman every two
yards. They can move a whole
battalion through a 10 yard gap
if they don't want to fight."
The Cambodian border is about
25 miles west of the battle zone.

drafted to fight in Viet Nam.
And last month, Congress ap-
proved legislation that gave Pres-
ident Johnson unrequested au-
thority to call up the untrained
reservists for active duty without
declaring a national emergency.
McNamara Announcement
Secretary, of Defense Robert S.
McNamara announced Saturday
that draft calls t hrough April
would total under 25,000 monthly,
about half the current levels.
Sources indicated this would
enable the Army to more than
double the amount of Reserve
training now being scheduled. The
Army is scheduled to train only
7,000 Reservists a month under
current programs because its
training facilities are strained to
meet the heavy demands of the
Viet Nam war.
Officials said that with the ease
indraft requirements, as many as
20,000 Reservists could be trained
each month. The Army now has
the capacity to train about 55,000
men a month-both for regular
service and Reserve status.
Reduce Gap
Sources added that the speedup
in training of Reservists would re-
sult in a reduction in their time

Record Show
Despite this, it had been wide-
ly reported before last weekend
that the Army is considering a
cutback in Reserve enlistments.
And although no offical announce-
ment was made, the Army did in
fact sharply reduce Reserve en-
listments in the first three months
of this fiscal year.
Officials said the reduced draft
calls will have no effect on the
150,000-man selected R e s e r v e

the Reserve-because the training
of their enlistees is a priority item

By The Associated Press
A possible 1968 presidential bid
by George Romney may be on the
line today when voters choose be-
tween the Michigan governor and
his Democratic challenger, Zolton
Ferency. Romney, 59, has been
given a 2-1 margin in most polls
to win a third term as a governor.
Ferency, 42, Democratic state
chairman, has said Romney is
'considering a bid for the 1968
Republican presidential nomina-
tion. Romney has turned aside
questions on whether he has White
House ambitions.
Romney, former president of
American Motors Corp., ended his
campaign Saturday except for a

The percentage was a two-point,

election bid by Robert P. Griffin,
named by the governor last spring
to fill a vacancy created by the
death of Sen. Patrick V. McNa-

Observers and polls have cited
a close contest for the Senate be-
tween Griffin, 42, a former five-
term congressman, and G. Men-
nen Williams, former governor
and one of the state'smost popu-
lar politicians in decades. Chief
difference between the two has
been Williams' support of the
Johnson administration and Grif-
fin's votes against many Demo-
cratic programs.
Most state election officials ex-

Republicans their first Michigan
