US Viet Casualties Higher than 1966 By HAL COOPER Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) - The casualty rate among U.S. troops in South Vietnam climbed significantly in 1967 over 1966. It increased both in the over-all total and on a percentage basis, despite a prediction the precent- age rate would decline. A comparative survey showed today that troop strength, greatly augmented during the year, averaged 448,200 against the 1966 average of 299,281. Casualties in 1967 totaled 9,353 killed and 62,004 wounded, a percentage of 15.9. The percentage killed was 2.08, wounded 13.8. Total casualties in 1966 were 5,008 killed and 30,093 wounded, or 11.7 per cent of the average number of men engaged. The percentage Killed was 1.66 per cent, wounded 10.05. Henry Cabot Lodge, then U.S. ambassador to Soutii Vietnam, predicted las January the percentage of casualties would drop during 1967. "I believe the purely military part of the war, which is what the Americans are engaged in, will make tremendous progress in 1967 and that the percentage of American casualties will start declining," Lodge said in an,interview at ttiat time. At the end of the year the number of American dead since 1961 stood at 15,997 and the number of wounded at 99,742. Another 878 were listed as missing or captured. Some men were wounded more than once, which somewhat inflated ttie total, and in many cases the wounds were minor. Eor example, of 437 •wounded during Christmas week, 130 did not require hospi- Where the Cowboy? By LOUDOWKELLY Associated Press Writer DENVER, Colo. (AP) - The trained cowboy—who can handle a horse, a truck and cattle —is hard to find in these parts. Good cowboys are scarce and getting scarcer in most of the] cattle country. One exception is Montana wiiere, "there are more cowboys than jobs," says a spokesman for employment bureaus. But other states report ranchers need capable hands. Brad Stewart, president of the Arizona Cattle Growers Association, said, 'The trained cowboy is be- 'coming a vanishing breed." Lyle Liggett of .the American National Cattlemen's Associa- ble to most town jobs," he said -Television is a factor, too, because 'cowboys who have families don't want to work at ranches that might be out of range of TV. . * * * Dick Wilson, editor of a Texas cattlemen's magazine, said, "We're mechanizing where we can, but it's kind of hard to mechanize the cattle business." Horses are still used in many areas. Harry Lee, who helps his father operate a 250,000-acre ranch in New Mexico, summed up one aspect of the problem: "One of te troubles is when you finish work on a range camp, you are there. But in talization. Christmas week dead totaled 185. The bloodiest week'so far for U.S. troops was May 14 to May 20 when 337 were killed and 2,282 wounded. As of Dec. 30 the Pentagon reported a U.S. troop level of 486,000, compared with 389,000 a year previous. In 1965, when the U.S. armed forces in the South Vietnamese arena totaled fewer than 200,000 casualties were 1,369 killed and 6,114 wounded. The White House announced last August that the U.S. .corm mitment would be increased to 525,000 men by June. iiauuucu i<ai.L!t;ii!cii a rtaouuia- i i.. . i tion, with headquarters in Den-! tovm when you flnlsh work you ver, said, "The shortage is : can go to a movie or do whatev real. + ••* * "It's not just a matter of more money," he said. "The good, old-time; hardworking cowboys are dying off, and not many young men are coming along to take their places. Liggett said cowboys are paid as much as $300 to $400 a month plus such benefits as a house, a vehicle and free beef and milk. "That makes the job compara- Retail and Institutional Size PROVISION CO.

(AP) President Johnson's talks with Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol have produced an indication that a Soviet buildup for Arab nations may mean more U.S. arms for Israel. This was the outcome of conferences spread through. 25 hours Eshkol spent at the LBJ Ranch Sunday and Monday- conferences at which U.S. officials had said a durable peace in the Middle East would be the prime subject. A joint statement omitted any pledge that- the United States would allow Israel to buy 50 F-4 Phantom jet fighter planes. Eshkol wanted them as an offset to what he says is a dangerous resupplying of Soviet arms to the Arab nations after the June war with Israel, I Austin was canceled, along with I presidential plans to go along. The prime minister and his wife drove over glazed roads in a limousine, accompanied by the U.S. chief of protocol, James Symington. At Bergstrom, plans for a civic sendoff were abandoned, although Ihe mayor and City Council had turned out to see the Eshkols off for New York.

And they reaffirmed calls for peace elsewhere in the world, although no direct mention was made of Vietnam. It was the first sunny day in a week—but frigid—when Eshkol and his wife came to Texas Monday afternoon. That was the last decent weather they saw and they got a good look at the ranch. It was back to rain Tuesday —freezing rain and iced roads in the hills where the ranch sits beside the Pedernales River By the time the Monday sessions ended and Eshkol 'was ready to leave, he was three hours behind schedule. The weather was so bad that a 65- mile flight to get the Eshkols to Bergstrbm Air Force Base in went up from 2% c»hts a piece to 3.6 cents. . • In Buffalo, N.Y., 600,000 letters were dumped through the slots—400,000 more than the usual Saturday collection.
