U.S. Ends Biggest Drive of Viet War By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP)-U.S. troops in War Zone C called an end today to the biggest operation of the Viet Nam war with the Viet Cong still firing at one American command post.

The U.S. Command said casualties were light in the 35- minute shelling early today.
