Egypt, Libya to form social,
political union in near future

govt marines
SAIGON ( -- Hundreds of American air strikes have
failed to silence communist artillery positions around
Quang Tri as North Vietnamese gunners poured about
2,000 rounds yesterday onto government marines fighting
to retake the devastated city.
The Saigon command spokesperson, Lt. Col. Le Trung
Hien, reported it was the heaviest communist artillery
bombardment since the South Vietnamese launched their
drive to recapture the capital of the country's northern-
most province five weeks ago. Quang Tri fell to North
Vietnamese invaders May 1.

GOP funds
to undergo
investigation
The General Accounting Office
(GAO) announced yesterday it
will begin a full audit of Nixon's
campaign finances in connection
with the break-in incident at
Democratic National Committee
headquarters June 17.
In response President Nixon
has asked all of his staff and the
staff of the Committee to Re-
elect the President to cooperate
in the investigations.
The director of the GAO's of-
fice of federal elections, Philip
Hughes, said he was ordering
the audit of possible links be-
tween Nixon campaign financing
and the break-in and alleged bug-
ging at Democratic Committee
nffices in the post Watergate
complex.
Hughes said that audit was
called for because of reports in
a Washington Post story that
$25,00, apparently earmarked
for the President's campaign
fund, ended up in the bank ac-
count of one of five men arrest-
ed in the incident.
The White House, press secre-
tary Warren said, would continue
its policy of not commenting on
the case while it is under investi-
gation by appropriate agencies.

At least eight government
troops were killed and 28
wounded, while the communists
lost six dead in the fighting at
Quang Tri, Hien said.
North Vietnamese guns near
the city have been the target
of repeated attacks by U. S.
Air Foice Phantom jets, Navy
planes and naval gunfire. Two
heavy guns eight miles south-
west of Quang Tri were report-
ed silenced Tuesday by U. S.
planes and the 7th Fleet de-
stroyer Rupertus blasted a
100mm artillery position two
miles northwest of the city.
Fresh North Vietnamese
guns are reported heading for
the Quang Tri battlefield.
The Air Force claimed to
have damaged or destroyed four
of them Tuesday near the North
Vietnamese city of Quang Khe,
65 miles north of the demili-
tarized zone.
The communist artillery con-
centration around the provin-
cial capital is described by U.S.
advisers as one of the heaviest
of the war and is said to have
been a major factor in holding
government troops at bay.
More than 50= B52 bombers
struck back at communist po-
sitionis three to 15 miles from
the city, the U.S. Command re-
ported. The bombers also hit
other targets elsewhere in North
and South Vietnam.
Air Force Phantom jets and
Navy planes flew more than
260 strikes against targets in
the North, including bridges,
fuel installations, railroads,
warehouses, trucks, barges and
missile launchers

BENGHAZI, Libya (t) - Egyp
aind Libya agreed yesterday I
'complete union between the tw
countries" but said it would tak
at least a year to work out th
inerger'.
The announcement was mad
after a three-day meeting bt
tween President Anwar Sadat c
Egypt, which has 35 million pet
ple but little money, and Cc
Muammar Kadafi of Libya,
neighboring nation of only tw
million with an annual oil it
come of $2.4 billion.
Kadafi, a devout Moslem an
outspoken prophet of Arab unit:
is chairman of Libya's rulin
Revolutionary Command Cou
cil. He has said a common Ara
effort is the only way to defe
Israel.
The connection between A r a
unity and the struggle with I
rael was underscored in the pr
amble to the Sadat-Kadafi con
munique.
It said: "The imperialist an
Zionist challenge, symbolized b
the 1967 aggression and the a
tempts by U.S. imperialism an
world Zionism to make it a
accomplished fact, cannot t
met, whatever help we get froi
our friends, unless Arabs unit
behind Egypt, the spearhead{
the confrontation."
A communique broadcast b
Benghazi radio said the lea
ers of the two Arab nations ha
reached "a historic decision"t
form a unified political leade
ship committee that will wor
out a plan for the union and r
port by Sept. 1, 1973.
For Egypt, which risked it
Soviet support by ordering Ru
sian military advisers to leat
July 18, the union promisE
much-neededneconomic suppot
For Kadafi, one of the more hi
ligerent Arab leaders, the mer
er could be a boost in his pus
toward a new confrontation wi
Israel.
The young Libyan leader, wh
has pursued the unity plan f
at least five months, wants
new battle and has been tryin
to build up his armed forces wi

Egypt and Libya already are
linked in the 11-month-old Feder-
ation of Arab Republics, with Sy-
ria as the third partner. T h e
official Middle East News Agen-
cy in Cairo said a Libyan-Egyp-
tian delegation was on the way
to Damascus to inform Presi-
dent Hafez el Assad of Tues-
day's decision.
The Benghazi radio broadcast
said that, effective immediately,
Libyans and Egyptians will be
able to travel, establish busi-
nesses, work and exchange mon-
ey in each other's countries with-
out the restrictions imposed _ on

fureigners.
Sadat and Kadafi also decided
to set up six joint committees
to write a constitution, organize
a joint defense force, merge
monetary, judicial and economic
systems and report to the uni-
fied political command before
Sept. 1, 1973. That is the an-
niversary of both Kadafi's coup
in Libya and of the loose three-
state federation formed I a s t
year with Syria.
There is to be a referendum
on the final unity plan at an un-
specified time in the future, af-
ter both governments have ap-
proved it.
