A3 Palm Beach Post-Times. Sunday, Nov. 17, 1968 fiaie r.-o.-n U.S. Wt ATHM iU&EAU SSA U. S. Troops Repel Enemy 70 vWA Ena SAKJON (AF) - U.S. 1st Air Cavalry Division troops, using mobility and firepower, shattered a North Vietnamese attack Saturday near the Cambodian frontier. Brought from the northern front only recently to help face the menace of lfi.OOO or 20,000 enemy troops massed In the area, the cavalrymen had little trouble breaking up the attack. The cavalrymen were in a night bivouac 75 miles north west of Saigon when North Vietnamese in undetermined force struck with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons. The battle raged for an hour and a half, then the enemy began withdrawing under the blows of the division's helicopter gunships. The cavalrymen pursued for nine hours before final contact was lost. In the battle at the bivouac, 24 enemy were killed, but U.S. headquarters said more were killed in the pursuit through the jungles, with some North Vietnamese shot from perchs in rubber trees. American casualties were reported as several wounded with no fatalities. Nine miles away from this battle, cavalry helicopters caught an enemy patrol in the open and killed 10, the U.S. Command said. There were no American casualties. The U.S. Command said there had been three more vio lations Saturday of an agreement with North Vietnam to keep the demilitarized zone free of military activity In exchange for the U.S. bombing halt of the North, announced Oct. 31. American artillery and war-planes attacked the zone between the Vletnams after sighting enemy troops and convoys.

In Saigon, South Vietnamese sources close to the government maintained cautious optimism that a way out would be found for the diplomatic tangle holding up enlarged peace talks In Paris. U.S. officials, however, would say only that discussions were continuing and various solutions were being studied. No top level U.S.-South Vietnamese meetings were held. President Nguyen Van Thieu has refused to sit at the peace talks if the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front Is a separate delegation. He wants South Vietnam to lead the allied side with the front subordinate to North Vietnam on the Communist side. Informants said one formula under study would leave South Vietnam nominally head of the allied team facing the North Vietnamese and the NLF. South Vietnamese sources said this might m?ke it possible for Thleu to send a delegation to Paris. Another solution suggested was setting up a rotating chairmanshp for the Saigon-Washington team, with Saigon refusing to recognize the Front but agreeing to Its presence on the Communist side. The English language newspaper Sunday Post criticlzd the United States for agreeing to a loose "our side, your side" formula, Interpreted by North Vietnam and the Front as a four-party setup. The Post said It was up to Washington to convince Hanoi "to organize 'your side' as a single delegation if It is prepared to negotiate in earnest and in good faith." A Hanoi radio broadcast again rejected this principle, saying that the Front must take part In the Paris talks "as an Independent entity, fully equal to all other parties."
