been most offensive. badly hit in the Tet offensive, for all U.S. nurses to go home. One nurse said they were told the enemy was expected to attack Monday night or early Tuesday. Throughout the 11 provinces that make up the 3rd Corps area, the day passed quietly except for an area 11 miles southwest of Saigon. There elements of U.S. 9th Division reported heavy contact with an enemy unit. In the air war, U.S. fighter- bombers returned in force to attacks on North Vietnam's southern panhandle Sunday with a break in the bad weather. Hanoi radio claimed tlirei U.S. fighter-bombers were shot down Sunday but there was no confirmation in Saigon. The planes, flying the second highest number of missions ol the year, set three fuel dumps to blazing, and scored hits on trucks, communication lines, artillery and a radar site, pilots reported. They also touched off numerous explosions. The largest number of missions of the war, 160, was flown Friday. But monsoon clouds settled down again and only 94 missions were flown Saturday.
