Agnew Popularity Bothering Nixon?
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 completely loyal to Nixon and determined to do a good job in a position he has often described as “supportive” of the President.
Two years after Nixon plucked Agnew from political obscurity and made him the Republican vice presidential nominee, their relationship remains formal, business-like and somewhat distant.
They rarely see one another outside of working hour's. Despite some overlap, each has his own staff and goes his own way.
Nixon has often praised Agnew publicly. But there is some surprise among Nixon intimates over the way Agnew’s popularity has grown over the past nine months. A Gallup Poll last January rated him the third most respected man in the United States, behind Nixon and the Rev. Billy Graham, an unprecedented rating for a vice president.
Though Agnew has made It plain he knows who is boss, the

President apparently does not like to lose an opportunity to show it.
Thus, last Monday, the Western White House abruptly summoned Agnew from Hawaii, where he was midway through a two-day rest stop after his Asian trip, to return to San Clemente, Calif., a day ahead of schedule.
“I wanted to stay longer, but they wouldn’t let me,” the vice president told Gov. J Burns of Hawaii as he hurried to board Air Force Two that afternoon.
Several Agnew aides grumbled about the change in plans, and one insider, asked Agnew’s reaction, said, “He was plenty upset.”
The ohtensible reason for Agnew’s early return was so he 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,

B52s Bomb Delta
SAIGON (AP) — The U.S. Strategic Air Command diverted part of its B52 bomber fleet Saturday to strike at Viet Cong lairs deep in the Mekong Delta.
Six of the planes hit the Delta's thick U Minh Forest, a longtime enemy hideout 145 miles southwest of Saigon. Allied officers reported stepped up activity there recently.
Another 15 B52s kept up the sustained campaign—now two months old—against North Vietnamese operations in Laos, hammering at the Ho Chi Mnh Trail. Daily attacks on the jungle 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 Vietnamese command reported 'a lightning-like Viet Cong assault on advil defense training center in coastal Binh Dinh province 275 miles northeast of Saigon.
In the pre-dawn attack Friday, tile 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 tile area.
The attacking Viet Cong fell back into the countryside almost unscathed. The Saigon command claimed only one enemy soldier killed.

The U.N. Security Council demanded 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 vote was 14 to 0, with the United States abstaining.
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 continuing.
Shabtai Rosenne, Israel’s dep-aty U.N. representative, replied that Lebanon had reacted in panic to “a minor patroling incident.”
The resolution demanding an Israeli withdrawal was submitted by Spain. French Ambassador 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 Israel. He said Israel had taken counteraction against them.
Because of the conflicting reports, 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.
Rosenne told the council that the incursion into Lebanon was “fully justified by the free hand given the terrorists by the Lebanese government.”
He said there had been since May more than 200 acts of aggression “committed from Lebanese territory” against Israel “with the connivance of the Lebanese authorities.”
The Israeli raid was a minor one, he said, “in which the Le-

SANTIAGO Chile (AP) -Marxist Salvador Allende won support from a centrist opponent Saturday and prepared for a six-vear presidential term in which he has said he would steer Chile sharply to the left but stop short of Castro-style communism.
The first avowed Marxist ever freely elected head of a Latin-American country, Allende appeared assured of victory after receiving congratulations from Radomiro Tomic, the Christian Democrat who placed third in Friday’s election.
“You deserve this embrace,” Tomic said, hugging his fellow politician.
Allende got 1,075,616 votes to 1,036,278 for conservative Jorge Alessandri, but his 36.3 per cent fell short of the more than 50 per cent required for outright election and Congress must

Saturday’s gesture by Tomic, who polled 824.849 votes, indicated the 74 Christian Democrats would join the 83 members of Allende’s leftist coalition to give the Marxist a solid majori-

Lebanon sought a Security Council resolution demanding the withdrawal as well as the imposition of sanctions against Israel. However, the council adjourned until Tuesday after adopting the resolution only.
A Lebanese spokesman in Beirut said “Israeli forces are still carrying out military operations.” He said the Israelis had withdrawn from the village of Kfar Hammam 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.
