As to the future, Nixon said- "We have adopted a plan which we have worked out in cooperation with the South Viet- namese for the'complete, with- drawal of all U S. ground com- bat forces and their replace- ment by South Vietnamese forces on an orderly scheduled timetable As South Viet- namese forces become stronger, the rate of American withdraw- al can become greater Nixon did hot detail either the dates in his timetable or the to- tal of troops to be brought home. Administration officials say the withdrawal rate will go up in 1970, and speculation is that pull backs during the year may total or if there are no upsets. Nixon argued his plan had-to remain: secret because he must adjust it to conditions in South Vietnam and possible progress at Paris. He said the progress in training South Vietnamese troops plus a decline in enemy infiltration and offensive action had enabled him to make a "more optimistic" withdrawal schedule now than he made last June. At the same time-he declared that "if the level of enemy ac- 'tivirjr significantly inoreasesvwa might have to adjust our tirneta- bte accordingly" And in words specifically directed to Hanoi he issued this Warning: "If I conclude that increased enemy action jeopardizes our remaining forces in shall not hesitate to take strong and effective measures to deal with that situation."

PeariSt 8M-MW Mori, thru Open Thin, 'til I By GEORGE ESPER SAIGON (AP) North Viet- namese troops launched their heaviest ground attacks in two months Tuesday, some 12 hours before President Nixon said that a "significant" increase in ene- my activity might force him to stretch out his timetable for withdrawal of U-S. troops. However, an official U.S. source said the current upsurge in enemy attacks, which began last weekend in the central highlands, didn't appear to .be sufficient to slow the withdraw- al program. U.S. and South Vietnamese headquarters reported at least 45 enemy rocket and mortar at- tacks during the night; and in- fantry assaults on .four Ameri- can bases north of Saigon, an American niehtjnvouac in the central highlands, and two South Vietnamese positions in the southern' central highlands. Loses Heavily The enemy lost heavily in the ground attacks, with the allied commands claiming 180 killed, while allied casualties were four Americans and five South Viet- namese killed, 61 Americans and 12 South Vietnamese wounded, plus 23 Americans wounded in the shellings. The Americans captured seven North Vietnamese.in the fight- ing north of Saigon; "I think what the President is talking about is whether or not they launch something that would be relatively large said the U.S. source. said all antici- pated that in the immediate fu- ture they, would continue the a low level of action with periodic peaks, as opposed to a sustained offen- sive. I think President Nixon is thinking in those terms." The attacks were the heaviest since the night of Sept. 5-6, when the enemy shelled more than 100 bases and towns and launched several ground at- tacks. This was during the final "highpoint" of the enemy's fall campaign. A spokesman for the U.S. Command, noting that the night's attacks were not coun- trywide, termed them a "high- point" in the 3rd Corps area, which includes Saigon and the 11 provinces around it.

The Saigon government re- ported 47 Vietnamese civilians were killed, 107 were wounded and 47 were kidnaped by Viet Cong terrorists in the week end- ing Oct. 29. Spokesmen said this was a 24 per cent drop from the previous week, when 104 civil- ians were killed, 197 wounded and 48 kidnaped.
