REEDY SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - Two U.S. Marine divisions working out of Da Nang and Chu Lai broke up into numerous small units today in a new search for the elusive Viet Cong and reported that 581 various operations turned up only a handful of the enemy. The Leathernecks conducted patrols, laid ambushes, set up listening posts, scdut, sniper and search and destroy missions in the central coastal plains once bristling with bands of Viet Cong. They killed eight Viet Cong, captured two' and got two weapons. Eight sampans were sunk. The experience of the Marines was duplicated by the U.S. 1st Cavalry, Airmobile, Division in a two-brigade search for a North Vietnamese regiment which put up a stiff fight in the Chu Phong mountains along the Cambodian border. But now the enemy regiment apparently has chosen to fade away. The only contact made today was a flash fight with a platoon. Associated Press photographer Rick Mcrron reported one company of the Air Cavalry ran into the platoon at 1 p.m. only about 100 yards from the spot where the troopers killed more than 100 of the enemy Wednesday. The firefight was brisk but brief. Nine Viet Cong were killed. The 2nd Brigade of the 25th Infantry Division scouring 25 miles northwest of Saigon also failed to uncover any major Viet Cong units. But it had minor contact today when an enemy gi^enade attack was launched from ambush. The infantry retorted in kind, killing two Viet Cong, and capturing a Chinese Communist carbine, four U.S. hand grenades and documents. The infantry also counted two dead Viet Cong snipers during Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 3 Improvement Noted In Pastor's Condition GRAMPIAN-The Rev.
