SAIGON (AP) The U.S. Command is concentrating now on massive air and naval offensives to smash movements of the enemy .in South Vietnam, newly exhorted by Ho Chi Minn to fight on to complete victory. Gen Creighton W.

Sources In the know said the four-star commander issued word that there will be no scaledown in American military operations In South Vietnam while envoys dicker in the expanded Paris peace talks. Abrams left the clear implication that ousting of North Vietnamese divisions and grinding down the local guerrillas are primary alms. "There's going to be relentless, continuing pressure on all fronts," one source said. "This includes the big battalion war, pacification and elimination of enemy infrastructure." Another remarked: "If you don't put heavy pressure on them, you'll give the enemy the countryside." A U.S. Navy spokesman revelealed that an allied river-boat campaign aimed at strangling enemy supply lines from avowedly neutral Cambodia has been under way in the Mekong Delta since Oct. 18. Attacks in the first phase of this campaign, called Operation Sea Lords, were reported to have smashed 359 Viet Cong sampans and wrecked 411 trenches and other enemy fortifications. The spokesman said the maritime drive was not announced earlier for security reasons. Other American officials said U.S. Marine, Air Force and Navy planes have stepped up attacks over eastern Laos, pounding North Vietnamese troops and supply columns moving down the Ho Chi Minh trail to South Vietnam. U.S. intelligence sources say there are now about 120,000 to 130,000 main force enemy troops in South Vietnam or along the border in Cambodia and Laos. About 75 per cent of these are reported to be North Vietnamese army regulars. A senior U.S. official said some captured documents reveal an "inkling, an indication" that the enemy may be preparing to de-escalate. He noted too that North Vietnamese artillery had not fired on allied positions across the demilitarized zone since American attacks against the North halted by Johnson's order at 9 p.m. Saigon time Friday.
