and its two crewmen were re-

north of Hanoi.
Little significant ground ac-
tion was reported in the South,
where high-ranking officers say
there is no evidence the com-
munists are short on supplies
despite the air strikes and the
mining of North Vietnamese
harbors.
Meanwhile, after 67 days, Sai-
gon claims that the seams of the
North Vietnamese siege over An
Loc are starting to burst. .
A trickle of refugees began
leaving the devastated province
capital at dawn yesterday when
they heard the road south was
open to civilians. This trickle
soon became a flood of 10,000
people scurrying over broken
bridges, past bomb craters and
burned-out vehicles, to govern-

foot by foot from trenches and
foxholes.
Inside the city, Vietnamese
airborne troopers, who linked up
last week with the embattled de-
fenders, were probing gingerly
at North Vietnamese strong-
points, particularly a rubber-
processing plant where tanks
and infrantrymen are still dug
in.
"The siege will be over when
Route 13 is open,' said the
senior American adviser to the
21st Division, Col. Ross Frank-
lin. "I know we have made
many incorrect- predictions in
the past. But I feel we have a
grip on it at last. Give us two,
three more days, then we'll
punch through."
The refugees who started out
from An Loc at dawn got
through anyway, covering the 12
miles from An Loc south to a
fire base near Chon Thanh in
about eight hours in the searing
sun.

However, the Pentagon counts
only those personnel actually
in Vietnam in its troop totals
for the war zone.
Pentagon spokesman Jerry
Friedheim would not discuss
specifics, but said it was likely
that several Air Force and Ma-
rine air units would be moved
from Danang to Thailand in
the coming weeks.
Pentagon sources reported
Saturday that the remaining
four Air Force and three Ma-
rine F4 Phantom fighter-bomb-
er squadrons at Danang will be
re-assigned to bases in Thai-
land at Nmam Phong, Karat
and Tah Li.
Friedheim said the move will
allow Gen. Creighton Abrams,
the U.S. Commander in Viet-
nam, to send home some of the
ground troops providing secur-
ity at Danang, which the sourc-
es said is to be turned over to
the South Vietnamese Air
Force.
