VOCAT 123rd Year-No. 157 Victoria, Texas, 77901, Friday, October 11, 1968 22 Pages-10 Cents Red Units Hurtiiir All Systems OK'd THE VICTORIA For Food 'Malnutrition v Found in Dead SAIGON (AP) - Some North Vietnamese units that once threatened Saigon are on the verge of starvation after huge food caches were seized in ti nea sweeps, u& oil jeers re ported Thursday. Adding to the enemy difficulties. North Vietnamese bases near the Cambodian border have been pounded by U.S. B32 high altitude bombers and enough weapons have been captured since Jan. 1 to equip four divisions, the U.S. Command re ported. Big Caches Found The command added that in the past two weeks nearly 100 tons of cached rice have been found. U.S. officers said that while some isortn Vietnamese turns: are still well fed some, such as the Dong Ngai Regiment, are hard hit The Dong Ngai Regiment has bees operating around Lai Khe, 45 miles northwest of Saigon but now it is scattered looking for food, they reported. Enemy Starving "These guys (the Dong Ngai .Regiment) are starving to death," one U.S. officer said. "Most of the bodies of Dong Ngai soldiers we kffied in battle how some signs of malnutrition. The prisoners of war from that regiment say they are out looking for rice. The eight-engine B52s were out in force again Thursday attacking enemy base camps around Saigon, including those around Lai Khe. Bombs Hit Bases Since June 1, after a new enemy offensive was blunted, the B52s have dropped 125,000 tons of explosives on base camps, infiltration corridors and other targets lanrwnding the capital "We're running out of good targets," one source said. "We're hitting 0d base areas Just in case tbey decide to come down. They wont have anything to come oowa to. - B52s ranged north of the de- : inilitaraed tone into southern North Vietnam for their targets in three of eight strikes Friday. Tactical iignter-Domber crews reported setting off numerous secondary explosions in raids Thursday over the southern panhandle. On the ground, Viet Cong mortared the provincial capitals of My Tho and Go Cong in the Mekong Delta early Friday. The two barrages, totaling 37 rounds, killed two persons and wounded 35, Vietnamese bead-quarters said. Around Saigon, allied troops turned up two pairs of "significant' caches of enemy arms and equipment Thursday, nine and 24 miles northwest of Saigon, the U.S. Command said. The finds added to a large stockpile of enemy war material turned up recently. Describing earlier discoveries, military spokesmen said Thursday that intelligence, defectors and intensified sweeps were credited with recent successes in rooting out the enemy stores. The UJS. Command said the total of captured enemy arms since Jan. 1, was 42,924 individual pieces and 8,770 crew-served weapons, phis 2,093 rockets. That many weapons would easily equip four North Vietnamese divisions, which officially number about 12.100 men each, the command said. ' While actual fi chtiiu has been in a relative lull recently, U.S. officers consider operations in search of weapons and food caches to have been unusually successful la many cases the stockpiles are believed to hart been destined for use in new offensives against South Vietnamese cities.
