S adat seeks renewe
effort against Israel
CAIRO (A) - President Anwar Sadat issued an appeal yesterday
for a unified Arab crusade against Israel and the restoration of the
rights of the Palestinian people.
In a nationwide radio and television statement, Sadat urged
Egyptians and all Arabs to ready themselves for a coming battle
against "Zionist aggression."
He accused the United States of "direct participation" in the
occupation of Arab soil and also charged, "continuation of U.S. mili-
tary and material assistance to Israel is tantamount to American
participation in the occupation of our land . . Therefore the U.S. has
defined its stand as a partner in aggression on our nation."
Sadat's remarks seemed to doom any hopes of a peaceful interim
settlement as advocated by U.S. Secretary of State William Rogers.
Instead, it reflected a return to a hard-line policy, with Egypt new-
ly reinforced by the 15-year treaty of "fraternity and cooperation"
with the Soviet Union.
"The Zionist act of aggression will remain even after we have
liberated our lands," Sadat said. "The Israeli aggression will remain
as a menacing sword hanging over our countries, over our industrial
development and over every bit of bread of our children and of our
children's children, if we fail to face this Israeli technological and
cultural defiance with an equal one.
"There will be no peace in this area if we do not build a modern
state equipped with sophisticated military and civil weapons based on

FEWEST SINCE 1965:
U.S. combat casualties
SAIGON (IP) - U. S. battlefield
deaths last week dipped to the
lowest point since the start of the
big American troop buildup in
Vietnam in late 1965.
The U.S. Command announced
yesterday 19 Americans were
killed in action, reflecting both
the current ebb in fighting and
the diminishing combat role of
U.S. ground forces.
The fatalities were matched by
19 American noncombat deaths

hit new low
from sickness and accidents.
It was the lowest battle toll
since the third week of October
1965, a time when the United
States was just starting to build
its forces toward the 1969 peak
of more than half a million men.
In that October week, 14 com-
bat deaths were reported from
among 148,300 American troops
then in Vietnam. By comparison,
the 19 deaths last week came
from 250,900 U.S. troops still in
The highest one-week toll of
Americans killed occurred dur-
ing the heavy fighting that fol-
lowed the Communist Tot offen-
sive of 1968, when 562 Ameri-
cans were killed in the week of
So far this year. 1,609 Ameri-
cans havebeenekilled in actios
for an average weekly toll of 45.
In the comparable period last
year, the U.S. death total was
2,500 or an average of 114 a week.
The low casualty count coin-
cided with word that U.S. Ain-
bassador Ellsworth Bunker will
leave Saigon Sunday for talks in
Washington, possibly dealing with
a speedup in American troop
withdrawal. Also on the agenda
will be South Vietnam's presi-
dential election next October.
Along with the reduced casu-
alty figures, the U.S. Command
reported only scant battle ac-
tion. For a third straight :lay, the
command issued only its. 'vening
communique and did not release
a morning report because of lack
of significant fighting.
