Quang Tri Still Major Battlefield SAIGON-ir?--Hard fighting was reported in and around Quana Tri on Saturday and government units more than 100 miles to the south claimed continuing progress in their efforts to recapture strategic Que Son Valley. South Vietnamese marines in Quang Tri reported that nearly 100 North Vietnamese troops were killed in five battles in and on the edges of the ruined provincial capital just below the de militarized zone. Marines suffered at east 10 killed and 1 wounded in the fighting and un dcr the pounding of more than 1,000 enemy artillery shells. IN ADDITION, a government communique issued by regional military headquarters in Hue said 181 enemy were killed and three were captured in 24 hours of fighting on the northern front, ending at 6 a.m Saturday. South Vietnamese casulaties were put at. 20 killed and 85 wounded. Government marines and paratroopers have been battling for nearly fwo months to retake Quang Tri, which f e l l to the North Vietnamese last May 1. The city has been virtually leveled in the process, and government casualties have been estimated at 2,000 to 3,000. Although the marines have penetrated the city on three sides, the North Vietnamese, remain dug-in in the rubble and still hold the battered old Citadel in the heart of Quang Tri. In contrast, the enemy appeared to be putting up o n l y token resistance as South Vietnamese troops pushed back into the Que Son Valley which they lost in a rout a week ago. The Que Son Valley is considered militarily significant because it has long been used by the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese to infiltrate troops and equipment from the Laotian mountains to the west down into the fertile lowlands along the eastern coast, where most Vietnamese in the region live. IN THE AIR war over North Vietnam, one of America's top MIG killers was shot down by antiaircraft fire, but he and his crewmen managed t o g u i d e their crippled fighter out to sea before bailing out. They were picked up by an Air Force rescue helicopter. The Air Force said the F4 fighter-bombers on the mission struck within 35 miles of the Chinese border, knocking out three bridges and damaging the approach to a fourth using laser-guided "smart bombs." In the Cambodian war, 117 Khmer soldiers have been killed 107 wounded and 216 are missing and feared dead in eight days of fighting along Highway 5-Cambodia's "rice road" where C o m m u n o s t-led forces have seized a 15-mile stretch of road fiO miles north of Phnom Penh, threatening the Cambodian capital's food supplies.
