the upcoming en rifles bles. Twenty-one persons were held for questioning. Police uncovered an arms cache of.nine automatic rifles in Saigon's 3rd Precinct Sunday night and arrested seven suspected Viet Cong. TJie cache was within a mile of Independence Palace, where President Nguyen Van Thieu has his office, and near the homes of several high U.S. officials. It was by such infiltration tactics that the Viet Cong were able to launch their surprise attack on Saigon in the Tet offensive. A U.S. military spokesman declared American troops were on the same alert they had on since the Tet offensive, add ing: "We're just normal..' South Vietnamese troops have been on a 50 per cent alert of the time since the enemy offensive. Half of them have been allowed overnight passes. Now all troops are restricted to their bases. Vietnamese troops have been put on full alert several times since Tel.
