Page 8 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Vice President Agnew was but one of many Administration officials last week briefing ' the press and members of Congress on the President's State of the Union proposals .Shown here at a Nat'l Assn. of Counties-sponsored revenue sharing rally in Atlanta, Ga., the VP also spoke in Kansas City and this week will talk with the Governor of Illinois in Springfield and the Mayor of Indianapolis in Indiana. The topic will be the same: the fiscal crisis in state and local government and how the Nixon Administration proposals are designed to alleviate the problem. * Troops Wait 13 Communist dead. . ' Daniel said elements of the South Vietnamese 17th Cavalry received heavy ground fire today from a large Red force 6% | miles southwest of Fire * District Scouts ! (Continued from page one) und Area Council. Giving through the Community Fund and sustaining membership is low in this District in per capita compared to other areas, reported the Council. It was hoped by the Council that Caribou District would carry their "fair share" of the $30,000 needed for operating expenses in the Kfkthawenund area council areas. Support Base Saigon. Another cavalry unit skirmished with six to eight Communists eight miles west of Khe Sanh where the Communists! scattered to five or six bunkers in the area. Gunship crews killed one. Nearby, the 2nd Vietnamese Division killed three Communists. Five more were killed 11 miles northwest of Khe Sanh by gunships. - V Daniel said three American soldiers were injured by the explosion of an old mine at Khe Sanh airstrip today and were evacuated by helicopter. A man who was not wounded fell 200 feet to his death from the rescue helicopter. . Daniel said the U.S. border positions would be untenable unless supported ' by troops inside Laos and that the men involved were told they would be there at least three months. Daniel said the object of the operation — the biggest in South Vietnam in three years —was to cut the Ho Chi Minn trail, and that to do so effectively meant the capture of Sepone, 25 miles inside Laos. The mountain passes leading from North Vietnam empty into the: Sepone area, from which supplies are sent southward. The drive was supported by massive U.S. air strikes into Laos, an-offense by B52s and fighter-bombers that entered its 118th day today. U.S. helicopter gunships and supply planes also were involved.. * Federal Land Bank (Continued from page one) sen, Manager of the local association.
