South Vietnamese give up on Rte. 13 Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, Aug. 30, .1972 C-l SAIGON (AP) - After nearly five months of grinding, bloody battle, the South Vietnamese have abandoned effort* to open Highway 13 to An Loc and are reverting to "mobile tactics" to forestall a threat to Saigon, military sources said today. Lt. Gen. Nguyen Van Mlnh, the commander in the Saigon region, has put a new task force of some 10,000 troops into the field. Government forces have given tip all fixed bases along the 15-mile stretch of Highway 13 between Chon Thanh and An Loc, a stretch where they had been stalled In costly fighting since early May. The sources said the North Vietnamese forces now appear to be trying to move south toward Saigon on courses paralleling the highway. Some officials believe this is part of a new offensive effort that, according to captured documents, is being readied for the immediate Saigon ajrea next month. President Nguyen Van Thieu predicted such an effort in a speech Aug. 1, saying the Communists would put pressure on Saigon before the U.S. election in an effort to create economic crisis and political unrest in the capital. The plan's early phase already is being manifested in a series of attacks and terrorist incidents that temporarily sever main highways leading into Saigon. Most of these attacks have been concentrated along Highway 4, Mr. Bee's Foodliner 560 East Airline Drive Rosewood Heights Open 8:00 a.m. to 9: .10 p.m. MONDAY thru SATURDAY We Welcome Food Stamps MR.
