By MICHAEL T. MALLOY United Press International SAIGON (UPI)—Vietnamese airborne troops today landed within shooting distance of a mountain outpost surrounded NoblesviEle Man Suicide After Two Holdups NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (UPI)— A young motorist shot himself to death Tuesday in his car when police with drawn weapons ordered him to surrender- at the end of a high-speed chase in the investigations of two Indianapolis holdups. The victim was identified as Gary Banta, 21, R.R. 2, Noblesville. He fired a bullet into his head apparently from' an Italian- made pistol identified as a gun stolen in one of the holdups involving a grocery and restaurant . on the Indianapolis east side earlier in the evening. Indianapolis police received a report of a $S05' holdup of Carter's Market by a young man wearing a tan trenchcoat and a handkerchief mask. Abraham Garter, 54, the owner, gave a description of the getaway car, and police issued an alert. Less than half an hour l?ter, the Little Pigs of America Barbecue was held up and robbed of $115 and an Italian pistol by a gunman whose car answered the same description as the one used in the market robbery. Moments later, Marion County sheriif's deputies started chasing a car answering the description at speeds of 85 to SO miles per hour on Indiana 37-A toward Noblesviile. State police joined the pursuit, which continued to Noblesviile. Other police units joined in the chase and finally blocked the car. Sgt. Herschel Fuston and 'Patrolman Gary Cook of the No­ blesviile police department jumped out of their patrol car and Fuston drew his service weapon and ordered the driver to surrender. Instead, the suspect fired a bullet into his head and was dead on arrival at Riverview Hospital. Three guns were found in the car. by Communist guerrillas. At least one American has been killed and another .wounded in two days of bitter fighting around the garrison. A U.S. military spokesman here said a third American was listed as missing in the battle for beleaguered An in the rugged central highlands 300 miles north of Saigon. The American combat fatali­ ty—230th of the war—was a helicopter machine gunner killed in the early stages of the battle when Viet Cong guerrillas captured strategic hillUip positions overlooking the fort. Three U.S. soldiers were killed Tuesday in a separate engagement with the Viet Con:; southwest of Saigon. The wounded American was part of a L'.S.-supported armored relisf column which was ambushed Tuesday night 10 miles south of An Lao. He was struck by shrapnel in the leg;!. The missing GI, -the spokesman said,, may have been burned beyond recognition when Communist g.infire reduced five armored personnel carriers in the column- to ru!>-' b!c. It was the first ,big "set piece" battle of thw ar for Viet Cong forces, and bore strikin-: resemblances to the classic Communist attack on tii-.ii Bien Phu 10 years ago during the French Indochina War. Tne Dien Bien Phu campaign against the French marked the transformation of the Communist effort from the guerrilia warfare stage in'.o conventional fighting. Military observers here said today that the An Lao battle may signal a widening Vict Cong experiment at similar tactics to speed up the war. The relief column was trudging its way up the half-mile- wide trench-like valley leading to the garrison locked in at the other end when a detached force of guerrillas opened up with a withering barrage of recoilless cannon fire. The fort is surrounded by Communist-held hills ranging from 2,003 to 3.C00 feet in height.
