And what he saw, despite the fact that one eye couldn't get out from under that coat hood, was the gentleman on his float at right. Biggest to Date in War... u s By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam-(AP)-U.S. troops in War Zone C called an end today to the biggest operation of the Viet Nam war with the Viet Gong still firing at one American command post. Just about the time the 1st Infantry Division and other U.S. End Operation forces terminated Operation Attlcboro, Communists unloaded a 30-round mprtar barrage on the tactical command post of the division's 2nd Brigade. The U.S. command said casualties were light in the 35-minute shelling early today. Elsewhere, the U.S. command reported no ground action and South Vietnamese headquarters announced only three small, scattered clashes in which 18 Viet Cong were killed. Over North Viet Nam, monsoon weather persisted and limited U.S. pilots to 29 bombing missions Friday.. Off the North Vietnamese coast, two U.S. destroyers re- ported damaging or destroying five cargo barges during Operation Traffic Cop, ' the Navy's month-old campaign to halt seaborne infiltration of supplies. During the 43-day Operation Attleboro, fought in the jungle and brush country of Tay Ninh Province 45 to 65 miles northwest of Saigon, U.S. forces re- ported killing 1,106 of the enemy. At its peak, the U.S. command deployed 25,000 or more men against the Viet Cong 9th Division and the 101st North Vietnamese Regiment. Official U.S. spokesmen declined to speculate on the whereabouts of the remaining. Communist troops, but they were thought to-have pulled back into the Tay Ninh jungles or across the border into Cambodia. Over-all U.S. casualties for the operation were officially termed light, although some individual units were hard hit. Baptist Church first...
