Nixon a bombing and mining measures Are slated to continue until there is an Indochina cease fire and . Prisoners Are returned a proposal again rejected by the enemy wednesday. . Analysts see no evidence that the present generation of North Vietnam a leadership is going to give up its Long standing ambition to Quot liberate Quot the South. North vietnamese forces Are believed to have enough manpower and Materiel on hand to continue their offensive at its current Pace into the summer months. Whether Hanoi will choose to do so is thought to depend on How the enemy assesses results of the current Campaign. If the North vietnamese rate their present strikes As highly successful they May want to push on into the lowlands to harass major cities in Hopes of collapse an Loc Relief Force makes big Advance by George Esper associated press writer Saigon a a South vietnamese Relief column advanced to within 2 Miles of the besieged provincial capital of an Loc today making its biggest Advance in six weeks Field reports said. The Carrier Saratoga joined the Battle to lift the six week siege of the devastated town 60 Miles North of Saigon. It was the carriers first combat since she was commissioned in 1956. Moving behind hundreds of bombs dropped by jets from the Saratoga and from . B52 bombers the South vietnamese met no determined resistance from North vietnamese forces the Field reports said. The . Command confirmed an earlier report from South vietnamese Headquarters that 300 North vietnamese troops were killed by a b52 strike two Days ago Southwest of an Loc. Despite no major opposition As the government infantrymen leapfrogged by helicopter from Point to Point South vietnamese Field commanders indicated they expected Tough fighting ahead As they try to Clear North vietnamese troops from Highway 13. The South vietnamese Field commanders were reported cautious because of heavy casualties already sustained in the bloody six week drive to open Highway 13 and lift the siege of an Loc. The equivalent of three South vietnamese divisions Are committed to the drive. Associated press correspondent Lynn c. Newland said the strongest opposition is coming from the West Side of Highway 13 where North vietnamese forces Are Well entrenched to withstand air strikes. The arrival of the 78.000-ton Saratoga from the Atlantic boosted the 7th Fleet to six carriers for the first time in the War and increased the offshore american naval Force to about 46.000 men aboard More than 60 ships. While the Saratoga was operating off the coast of South Vietnam three other carriers the Kitty Hawk Midway and Hancock raided North Vietnam from Battle stations in the Tonkin Gulf. The fifth and six carriers assigned to the Vietnam War the Coral sea and Constellation Are on port leave. A seventh Flat top the Ticonderoga sailed from san Diego for Vietnam wednesday.

A wire photo opposing groups object education measure May die despite busing Compromise Washington a a coalition of civil rights liberals and anti using forces in Congress is threatening to undo a hard won Compromise on an $18. 5-billion higher education Bill. Both groups object to anti using provisions added to the Bill by House and Senate conferees one said because it thinks they go too far and the other because it thinks they done to go far enough. Whether there Are enough votes in the Middle to save the Bill the most sweeping higher education Bill Ever considered in Congress depends in Large part on the republicans. House Republican Leader Gerald r. Ford of Michigan who holds the key to the gop response declined to commit himself wednesday when the conference agreement was announced. Quot there Are Many Many questions to be answered and until they Are i am going to Reserve judgment Quot said Ford. One unanswered question is what position the Nixon administration will take. A White House lobbyist in chatting with newsmen indicated the Price of administration support will be congressional action on president Nixon a own anti using proposals. One of Nixon s Bills would fix remedies the courts could apply in desegregation cases permitting busing Only As a last resort temporary measure. It also would provide extra funds for inner City schools As an alternative to de segregating them. The other Nixon Bill would declare a moratorium until june 30, 1973, on any new court busing orders. The main Compromise amendment approved by the conferees wednesday would keep Federal court busing orders from going into effect until All appeals had been exhausted. The provision would expire dec. 30, 1973. Extensive hearings have been held on both Bills in the House education and judiciary committees but most of the testimony has been in opposition to them and neither committee has shown an inclination to approve them. The House and Senate conferees who hammered out the higher education agreement at Dawn wednesday after an All night session that climaxed nine weeks of meetings expressed Hope at a news conference that it would not be dragged Down by the busing Issue. The Bill would authorize $850 million a year for three years in direct Aid to institutions and $900 million a year in student Aid. Ing the Thieu government this year. By . Estimates however such a go for broke strategy would be highly costly to the North vietnamese. While Saigon forces Are hard pressed and have left wide areas of the Countryside thinly defended . Officials say Saigon a troops plus . Airpower already Are mounting a heavy toll on the enemy. Therefore analysts expect Hanoi More Likely will decide to hold Down costly frontal assaults except at some symbolically important Points such As Hue and to try to move into Little contested areas of the Countryside. They anticipate that Hanoi would accompany this military threat with a renewed offer at the Paris negotiating table of terms which in the . View would amount to a communist takeover of the South. If North Vietnam decides its Spring offensive has gained Little it could pull its forces Back into the bases outside South Vietnam to prepare for another drive later. Some units probably would remain dug in South of the demilitarized zone especially if Hue is captured. . Analysts say the North vietnamese think time is on their Side. Nixon a strategy counts time As in Saigon a Favory for Progress in Vietnam nation while . Air sea interdiction takes hold on Hanoi a Supply lines from the May have stalked Mcgovern Baltimore my.
