WASHINGTON (AP) Some signs of strain are beginning to show between President Nixon and the man he picked as his vice president, Spiro T. Agnew. But Agnew remains complete- ly loyal to Nixon and deter- mined to do a good job in a posi- tion he has often described as "supportive" of the President. Two years after Nixon plucked Agnew from political obscurity and made him lite Re- publican vice presidential nomi- nee, their relationship remains formal, business-like and some- what distant. They rarely see one another outside of working hours. De- spite some overlap, each has his own staff and goes his own way. Nixon has often praised Ag- new publicly. But there is some surprise among Nixon intimates, over the way Agnew's populari- ty has grown over the past nine months. A Gallup Poll last Jan- uary rated him the third most respected man in the United States, behind Nixon and the Rev. Billy Graham, an unprece- dented rating Jor a vice presi- dent, Though Agnevf has made It plain he knows who is boss, the An Aiiociated Presi News Anglyiis President apparently docs not like to lose an opportunity to show it. Thus, last Monday, the West- ern White House abruptly sum- moned Agnew from Hawaii, where he was midway through a two-day rest slop after his Asian trip, to return to San Cleraente, Calif., a day ahead of schedule. "I wanted to stay longer, but they wouldn't let the vice president told Gov. J Burns of Hawaii as ho hurried to board Air Force Two that aflernoon. Several Agnew aides grum- bled about the change in plans, and one insider, asked Agnew's reaction, said, "He was plenty upset." Tliu obtcnsible reason for Ag- new's early return was so lie could attend Tuesday's National Security Council meeting on the Middle East. Another reason was apparently due to Nixon's tentative plan to go to Portland, See AGNEW, Pg.

Six of the. planes hit the Del- ta's thick U Minh Forest, a longtime enemy hideout 145 miles southwest of Saigon. Al- lied officers reported stepped up activity there recently. Another 15 B52s kept up the sustained two months North Viet- namese operations in Laos, hammering at the Ho Chi Mnh Trail. Daily attacks on the jun- gle route are aimed at blunting any North Vietnamese buildup for a major offensive in two months' time. Ground action was generally light, although the South Viet- namese command reported a lightning-like Viet Cong assault on. acivil defense training cen- ter in coastal Binh Dinh prov- ince 275 miles northeast of Sai- gon. In the pre-dawn attack Fri- day, the command said, the Viet Cong killed 14 South Vietnamese and wounded another 26 in what was believed part of a drive to wreck the Saigon government's pacification program in the area. The attacking Viet Cong fell back into the countryside al- most unscathed. The Saigon command claimed only one ene- rhy soldier killed.

S-B To Your Good HealtH 8-B TV Tob 1-16-E Women's By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The U.N. Security Council de- manded Saturday the complete and immediate withdrawal of all Israeli forces from Lebanon despite claims by Israel that its troops had pulled out after a 40- hour raid. The council vole was 14 to 0, with the United Stales abstain- ing. The session was convened at the request of Lebanon after it charged that Israeli soldiers crossed its southern border. The Lebanese denied Israel's claim, that it had withdrawn its troops and said fighting was contin- uing. Shabtai Kosenne, Israel's dep- aty U.N. representative, replied that Lebanon had reacted in panic to "a minor patroling inci- dent." The resolution demanding an Israeli withdrawal was submit- ted by Spain. French Ambassa- dor Jacques Kosciusko-Morizet said France welcomed the measure and "fully supported" it. U.S. Ambassador William B. Buffum told the council that while some of the reports were in conflict, there was no doubt there had been raids by Arab guerrillas from Lebanon into Is- rael; He said Israel had taken counteraction against them. Because ot the conflicting re- ports, he said, his government had instructed him to abstain. He added that adoption of the resolution would amount to a finding that Israeli troops were still in Lebanon despite Israel's "categorical" assurances of a withdrawal. Roscnne told the council that the incursion into Lebanon was "fully justified by the free hand given the terrorists by the Le- banese government." He said there had been since May more than 200 acts of aggression "committed from Lebanese territory" against Is- rael "with the connivance of the Lebanese authorities." The Israeli raid was a minor one, he said, "in which the Le- Analysis, Pg. 3-A First Communist in Chile's History Elected President Lewis Grimes Dies After Heart Attack Lewis Alexander Grimes, 83, an Abilene city employe for more than three decades, died at p.m. Saturday in Henririck Memorial Hospital after being stricken by a heart attack four days earlier.

Lebanon sought a Security Council resolution demanding the withdrawal as well as the imposition of sanctions against Israel. However, the council ad- journed until Tuesday after adopting the resolution only. A Lebanese spokesman in Bel- rut said "Israeli forces are still carrying out military opera- tions." He said the Israelis had withdrawn from the village of Kfar ilammam only, indicating Israeli troops still held Kfar Chouba, a mile away. Thant was the first speaker at the 15-member Security Council meeting, in which Lebanon said it would press for "adequate punishment" of Israel.________ Girl Drowns In Tank Hear Slephenville STEPHENVILLE (RNS) Jacqueline (Jackie) C a r o!
