A study report released by President Nixon urged joint action by the government, doctors, hospitals, medical schools and the health insur- ance industry to make the best use of overburdened resources and to stress prevention and early treatment of first line of attack." The administration promised to crack down on abuses and lax administration of the "badly conceived and badly organized" Medicaid program of federal-state health-care for the needy of all ages. It appealed at the same time for voluntary remedial steps by private institutions, which it said had too often "been reluctant to give up outmoded practices that are unstated to the incredibly rapid changes of car society, to new. demands and increased demands." The report was prepared by Secretary Kobert H.'Finch of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and his newly appointed assistant sec- retary for health and scientific affairs, Dr. Koger 0. Egeberg. The President said at a White House briefing that he knew health care was a serious national problem when he entered office in January but after studying the report he realized the situation was "much worse than I realized."

Israel con- firmed the attack but said only eight of its soldiers were hit. An Egyptian. army spokes- man said in Cairo that the special forces troops held the post in the Port Tewfik area for one hour and captured an Israeli soldier. He said the company returned safely to its base after destroying five Israeli tanks and setting the Israeli post- on fire. "The (Egyptian) force stormed enemy positions till it reached their rear defenses and destroyed all enemy weapons, tanks, equipment and personnel inside their bunkers and the Egyptian spokes- man said. "It had the area under complete control for one hour and captured one enemy soldier who was wounded during the he added. The spokesman said "enemy losses are not less than 40 either killed or injured. Fiva enemy tanks were also de- stroyed and fire was set to his equipment." Ah Israeli military spokes- man said in Tel Aviv that the attack took place in the Port Tewfik area and that the Egyptians were repulsed after a short battle. The Israeli official gave no details on the number of attacking Egyptians or whether they suffered any casualties. Port Tewfifc is located near Suez City. Earlier Thursday Egypt said it crossed the canal at another point and damaged Israeli military hardware. Israel de- nied the Egyptian report.

They brought to eleven the total number of Justice Depart- ment actions in the past four days compared with just eight school suits during the entire six months since President Nixon took office. stepped up activity had been promised last Thursday when Atty. John N. Mitchell and Secretary Robert H. Finch of Health Education and Welfare issued a joint statement removing the Sep- tember school desegregation deadlines as too rigid. If that statement was calcu- lated to appease southerners, this week's unprecedented num- ber of legal attacks was clearly aimed at satisfying disgruntled liberals. Officials made no pretense of the fact several actions had been held back until'this week. The Arkansas suit Thursday attacked for the first time what appeared to be gerrymandered districts aimed at keeping schools segregated. The government sought a court order to consolidate the all-white Bright Star School District No. 6 with all Negro Milter County School District No. M as a means of abolishing the alleged discrimination. am Xelntotoi Veterans of the 3rd Battalion, Infantry, Jth Infantry Division, the first Troops of a total of ordered out of Vietnam to be returned home, are welcomed at ceremonies in Seattle, Wash.

The rocket attack against the Bien Hca Air Base, 14 miles northeast of the capital, killed seven Vietnamese civilians and wounded 15 others. Allied sources said some 300 Viet Cong commandos recently had moved into Binh Chanh district southwest of Saigon, hiding there in preparation for sabotage attacks on the capital. The sources said some of these Viet Cong already had entered Saigon, and the bombing of the billet indicated the sabotage campaign had begun. The billet attack coincided with a Viet Cong Liberation Radio broadcast Thursday urg- ing the guerrillas to increase their efforts in view of the "weakening position of the Americans and their puppets (South The com- mentary, monitored in Saigon, said Communist victories dur- ing the past six months had given the Viet Cong "a very solid base" for operations. The radio said the Viet Cong will launch "continuous at- tacks" against the Allied forces if the United States fails to modify its Vietnam policies. The bomb at the air base barracks was thrown by a lone terrorist who escaped, military sources said. The bombardment of Bien Hoa Air Base with 20 122mm rockets was rare in thai it came during daylight hours, following overnight shelling attacks against 32 other Allied installations. T- Blastoff Scheduled Wednesday CAPE KENNEDY Launch crews fixed a helium leak and then started the countdown Thursday night for the Apollo 11 blastoff next Wednesday on man's first attempt to land men on the lunar surface. The leak in the Saturn 5 rocket was the only significant hitch in the series of prepara- t-'ons for the launch of Nefl A. Armstrong, Michael Coffins and Edwin E. Aldrin, and it wai solved quickly. Two technicians climbed In- side the first stage- fuel tank and tightened a loose fitting. The long countdown began on time at 8 p.m. EDT when ,vchief test conductor read .pat from a countdown manual said: "Start on.my.mark at T- minus.J days, 21 Sours, zero minutes. 5-4-3-2-l-mark. The leak was caused by a loose nut' in the helium gas pressurization system in the booster's cavernous liquid oxy- gen tank. After it was tightened and the system retested, flie space agency announced "the problem has been resolved." The technicians, wearing super-clean white coveralls, entered the tank through a manhole at its base and climbed up on rib-like baffles along the side of the tank's inside wall to locate and repair the leak. They traced it to a loose nut on the bottom of one of four helium bottles attached to the wall of the tank, structure as tall as a six-story building and as wide as nuclear sub- marine. One of the technicians, mechanic Ira Kay Beeson, tightened the nut while the other, Walter Delle, inspected tie operation. They then left the big rocket and launch crews applied pressure to the system to make certain the teak was eliminated.
