The fight six'miles northeast of the'key provincial capital, which Allied Intelligence says, may be the "main target of-a new enemy drive, was the only major disruption reported as the battlefield lull' entered its fifth week. The. battle Friday involved troops of the 33th Infantry Dirl B5J bombers struck around Tay Ninh and it enemy positions at the ol Black Virgin Mountain. Thiea Replies South Vietnam' President Nguyen Van Thlea, answering questions at a newt conference, said he did not believe U.S. and South Vietnamese policymakers should read political impli- cations Into the battlefield lull. He said the Communists hare decreased their battlefield ac- tivity many limes, three or four times this year alone, but only to rest add re-equip their forces. Thied'aiso said that i "very ftiportant part1' of U.S. troops could be' withdrawn' from Viet- nam only if sufficient .U.S. equipment and funds are forth- coming.

Thieu's opinion of the lull was in accord with the expressed views of most American com- aanders in Saigon. They be- iev'e the Communist command s girding for another "high point" in its sporadic summer campaign. After the news conference, Thieu met with Gen. Earls Wheeler, chairman of.the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff: Wheeler was. accompanied to Independ- ence Palace by Adm. John Mc- Cain Jr., U.S. commander in the Pacific; Gen. Creightoa W. Abrams, commander of U.S. troops in Vietnam; and Deputy U.S. Ambassador Samuel 'Ber- ger. Wheeler and McCain are on a four-day tour of Vietnam to as- sess the lull and the battlefield situation. They were expected to discuss with President Thieu the prospects for further withdraw- als of American troops beyond the now being pulled out. The fight near Tay Ninh City flared Friday morning when U.S. troops ran into an enemy force of unknown size, a U.S. headquarters communique said. The fight was the biggest Iff- volving American forces where in country since U.S. 1st Infantry Division troops and air strikes killed 31 enemy in virtually the same area July 11.
