He said Methodist missionar- ies in the south of the country confirmed the town of Sandoaf about 55 miles east of the Angolan border and about 200 miles west of Kolwezi, had been overtaken. Three other border towns were captured in the early stages of the fighting last week. The government-run AZAP news agency Thursday denied reports the invaders have taken Kolwezi.

AZAP said the Zairean army was regrouping "to contain the danger and reinforce its arma- ment before launching expan- sive action against the invaders." H said the invading troops had turned parts of the province "into mine fields11 and are "launching rockets and missiles to avoid any en- gagement."

No charges were filed.' captured four towns in the Shaba province, formerly called Katanga. Katanga's copper accounts for about 7 per cent of world production of the metal and for well over half of Zaire's exports. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance said in Washington last week that if anything should happen to the copper mines "it would be a very serious blow to the Republi c of Zaire.'' AZAP said the invaders were remnants of a Katangan militia that backed the province's abortive move to secede from the rest of the country after independence in i960. But the force is being' 'solidly officered by the agency said. AZAP also said a third country, presumably the Soviet Union, is supporting the inva- sion "for the needs of ideologi- cal conquest."

"We want to expand our efforts, and i would think a major thrust in Canada and possible some more work in the Middle East would be ournext targets." In Ure U.S., McBrayer said there is nothing planned in the way of opening additional offices in the country.
