The final attack took place at about 5:15 p.m. Saturday. When the Viet Cong strike finally came, American advisers again called for air-strikes, but the U. S. Air Force planes did not arrive for more than half an hour, according to reliable reports from the scene. The approaching rainy season has left skies overcast throughout much of the day in the Dong Xoai area but has not grounded the Amer ican air effort. The sources said the delay on Saturday was not due to bad weather. Under heavy fire from the .50 caliber machineguns on three armored cars that the Viet Cong had captured the previous day, the Vietnamese paratroopers withdrew to the Dong Xoai district headquarters. As the Vietnamese paratroops scattered, the three American advisers were picked up by a U.S. helicopter and taken from the scene. It was the second time this month that American advisers have been evacuated by helicopter when it appeared the Viet Cong were going to overrun government forces.

SO FAR ONLY 150 of the 480 Vietnamese paratroopers have reached the district headquarters. They brought with them 46 wounded colleagues. The American casualties remain 19 U.S. advisers and aircraft crewmen dead or missing and 15 others wounded. The U.S. military spokesman in Saigon declined yesterday to release any Vietnamese airborne or infantry casualty estimates. Some officials in Washington have been critical of news reports that listed Vietnamese government losses before Viet Cong casualties could be accurately assessed. The spokesmen denied, however, that they were withholding information. They said they had only fragmentary reports and could not provide a total. But they offered an estimate that another 225 Viet Cong have been killed by U.S. air-strikes around Dong Xoai. Reliable sources that had been at the battle scene discounted that figure as they had rejected previous estimates that 700 Viet Cong were killed on Thursday and Friday.

"Harry Lochner Associates, Inc., did the reconnaissance and preliminary survey work," he said. "This work totals seven years. "Preliminary right of way plans are completed for several sections and the final plans went to the Bureau of Public Roads this week on the north leg from 1 6th Street to Central Avenue," Hayes said. "MY REPORT Friday from the Land Acquisition Division is that we have abstracted 405 parcels, we have 179 in the buying section," he added, "and we have paid out $1,-309,950." Hayes continued: "This means to me, and it should to the public and the citizens of this community, that we're certainly to the point that we would not only be wasting a lot of money by changing the design or route, it's sure to be a great economic loss." An even more important consideration, he said, is that there would not be time to complete the interstates by the 1972 deadline. THE PLANS were accepted after a four-year study by a committee that included a representative of the mayor, Marion County Commissioners, the Metropolitan Plan Commission, the State Highway Department and the Bureau of Public Roads. Only the State Highway Department or the Bureau of Public Roads can change the plans. Brydenthal said he Tias appealed to Federal officials in Washington to reconsider the highway plans, but has received no reply. THE PROPOSED location also has received strong support from Frank E. McKinney, president of the Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee. The Chamber of Commerce statement noted that by nature of its geographical location, Indianapolis is destined to become an important hub in the nation's modern highway system. "Seven routes will converge upon our community more than upon any other metropolitan area in the country. We just cannot afford to lose this program," it said.

(AP) A sunset swim became a tragedy Saturday night when four Camden (N.J.) teenage boys drowned in the Delaware River. A fifth boy, who could not swim, stayed ashore and fished. When he suddenly noticed all four of his friends were missing the youth assumed they had come out of the water and were hiding. His calls for them alerted nearby residents, who called police. Police and volunteers recovered three bodies early yesterday and continued searching for the fourth. 'LBr Plates Not LBPs Washington (UPi) The latest head-turner in the nation's capital is a rangoon-red Mustang zipping along the streets with license plates em blazoned with "LBJ." Motorcycle policemen and tourists stare to see if it's Lynda Bird, Luci Baines, Lady Bird or Lyndon Baines himself at the wheel. But it's Lucille B. (for Best) Jones, a government clerk. According to the insider's newsletter, Mrs. Jones had little trouble getting the plates from the District of Columbia Motor Vehicle Department for an extra $25. The President's plates, on the car he uses most often, are "9P-421." 2inl Loan SAVES YOU MONEY BOTH... for $69 monthly A $2,000 Morris Han. personal loan for 36 months can often pay' what you owe such as the balance still owing on your car) . . . and, buy what you need (such as a new kitchen range for your home) at about the same monthly payment you are now paying on your car alone . . . just $69 a month.
