North capitalizes on Khe Sanh

HONG KONG (A) - U.S. aban-
donment of the Marine combat
base at Khe Sanh has given the
North Vietnamese what they ob-
viously consider their greatest
propaganda opportunity of the
The official reason for aban-
doning the base in the northwest
corner of South Vietnam was to
give Marines greater mobility.
But North Vietnam is using the
withdrawal to make the United

its Asian friends and the object
of derision among other Asians,
Asians in this British colony re-
For five days, North Vietnam's
radio has devoted about 70 per
cent of its broadcast time in every
Asian language to trumpeting
"American defeat" and a "Com-
munist victory" at Khe Sanh.
Previous American declarations
of why Khe San) was vital to U.S.
strategy and would be held are

De Murville names cabinet:
Education post goes to Faure

blended with inflated claims of
death and destruction wrought
among Khe Sanh's defenders.
The broadcasts are laced with
quotations from Western news
reports of how tough Khe Sanh
was for the Marines trying to de-
fend it. Observers here believe
that the propaganda will, be ac-
cepted by many throughout Asia.
Here is the way some of the
propaganda is beamed:
To the people of Thailand, Khe
Sanh is proof that despite its
superiority in weapons, t h e
United States cannot protect an
Asian ally and will "always, even-
tually abandon it."
To U.S. soldiers in South Viet-
nam, "Why and for whom do you
die? For President Johnson and
other American leaders who sent
thousands of your buddies to their
death at Khe Sanh and then de-
cided it wasn't worth it?"
To other Asian nations, the
Americans declared Khe Sanh
vital to their war strategy and
so "America suffered a staggering
defeat that spells doom for the
American aggressors as Dien Bien
Pho spelled doom for the French."
"It (Khe Sanh) was so vital to
American war strategy that Amer-
ica sacrificed 17,000 troops wiped
out and more than 500 planes
shot down trying to hold it,"
claimed one broadcast.

No court
action on
NEW YORK ( ) - A federal
judge declined yesterday to call
Howard Hughes, the all-but-invis-
ible industrialist, into court to
answer questions about his pro-
posal to buy a controlling interest
of the American Broadcasting Cos.
ABC had sought to compel
Hughes to appear in federal court
-where the communications com-
pany is trying to block the pro-
posal - but Judge Dudley B. Bon-
sal turned downfthe request.
Hughes has offered to buy 43
per cent of the ABC stock for
$148.8 million through his wholly
owned Hughes Tool Co.
Goldenson said he. told Gregson
Bautzer, a California lawyer rep-
resenting Hughes, last January
that ABC had been involved for
about two years in a fruitless
merger negotiation with the In-
ternational Telephone & Tele-
graph Corp. and he now wanted
to "first get my house in order."
He said Eliot Hyman, president
of Warner Bros.-Seven Arts Inc.,
told him that he knew Hughes
"very well" and that "we should
sit down and talk to Hughes about
the acquisition of ABC."

Third Battle of Saigon nears

PARIS (R) - Premier Maurice
Couve de Murville announced last
night the 30-member cabinet he
has assembled to revamp French
society along the lines promised
by President Charles de Gaulle.
'There were few new faces and
veterans held on the top jobs.
The Education Ministry, ex-
pected to be a crucial post fol-

last spring, went to Edgar Faure,
outgoing minister of agriculture
and former premier. Sources said

SAIGON (A) - The looming
third battle for Saigon may
well be the largest and most de-
structive of the seven year Viet-
nam war, intelligence sources
The enemy command has
massed elements of four divi-
sions olus numerous independ-
ent battalions and regiments
including artillery units around
the capital.
Documents and prisoner in-
terrogation indicate the enemy
believes a victory here would
put overwhelming pressure on
the. United States at the Paris
peace talks, paralyze the Saigon
government and destroy support
for the non-Communist cause.
The enemy seems prepared to
take massive casualties to win
its point.
Moren.than two divisions of
American and Vietnamese
troops have been assigned to
protect city and suburbs. Six
more U.S. and Vietnamese divi-
sions are deployed farther afield
around the city and there are
reports of major reinforcements
on the way
But there is little hope that
all the enemy battalions could
be kept out of the city. The U.S.
estimate was that it would re-
quire nine divisions dug in
around the city to seal it off.
That many troops are not avail-
able unless the countryside is to
be stripped.
At present it appears that
the major threat is to the west
of Saigon where perhaps two
divisions are located. Elsewhere
around the city the enemy units
are in small groups awaiting a
signal to mass for the attack.
Their total strength is not
known with any degree of pre-
Three of the four Vietnamese
divisions around Saigon are
considered among the least ef-
fective in the country.
Allied troops have been large-
ly unsuccessful in tracking
down the enemy units as they
move into position, although

weapons caches have been
found. These caches, in the
opinion of some U.S. officers,
do not represent more than a
small percentage of those ready
for the attack.
More than 200 B52 raids have
tried to break up enemy forces.
There have been some indica-
tions of success but U.S. sources
in a position to know say many
of the strikes are a day behind
the actual positions of enemy
troops .-- possibly because of
security leaks.
The first attack on Saigon
came during the lunar new year
holiday when there was sup-
posed to be a cease-fire. This
put some 4,000 enemy troops in
the city and they were able. to
claim a psychological and prop-
aganda victory.
Most of the second-wave
troops were met outside or on
the fringe of Saigon and when
the blow fell May 5, only scat-
tered units got through the
suburbs and refugee belts into
the city proper.
Enemy troops have been in-
filtrating the city for weeks in
preparation for the third wave,
police sources say. Weapons al-
ready have been cached inside
the city for squads whose iain
duty will be to disrupt the city
and its communications.
The allies feel battalions
ranged below the city to the
south may make a diversion-
ary attak to start the new
battle, with the big units to the
west launching the main blow
into the Phu Tho- area betyeen
the big air base of Tan Son
Nhut and the Chinese section
of Saigon.
Allied troops so far have not
had any measurable success in
smashing the enemy units on
their way to positions around
Saigon. One major infiltration
corridor comes through an area
guarded almost entirely by the
5th Division, one of the Viet-
namese army's least effective.
U.S. sources have said this route
hr chen in almost constant use


by enemy units, including the
famed Dong Nai Regiment.
Enemy plans for the third
battle appear far more exten-
sive than before, when the main
targets were the U.S. Embassy
and the palace. Such spots are
expected to remain high on the
list but other targets - avail-
able intelligence indicates -
include infiltration of suicide
squads into downtown Saigon
to force destruction in the city's
core as well as an attempt to
cut all the city's power.
Last month, intelligence said
the Viet Cong had threatened
to hit the city with 100 rounds
of rockets for 100 days. The
threat was never carried out,
but there is suspicion a massive
barrage of rockets and mortar
shells will precede a major as-
Together with the downtown
area, major attempts are ex-
pected to center the fighting in
the middle and upper-class
quarters of Saigon.

The problem with sealing
off the city is that hundreds of
waterways and trails lead in
from the countryside and spill
into thousands of back alleys
and slums. Gen. Hay said it
was impassible to block all
these routes but ambushes were
set on major ones.
Surprisingly Saigon's mood is
far from one of crisis. There is
no signdof panic buying. Lux-
ury goods are moving almost as
fast as canned goods. Work on
home bunkers and sandbagging,
begun at the height of rocket
attacks, has all but halted.
hSaigon until this y sar has es-
caped virtually all the unpleas-
antness of war and. the, Saigon-
ese apparently still see, the, war
as essentially a matter for the
countryside. Their ability to
panic quickly during major
trouble has been demonstrated
this year, but the response has
always come after trouble hit
full force.
