Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, July 15, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD SI South Forces Open New Sweep SAIGON (AP) Nearly South Vietnamese troops launched a major new sweep today, seeking to destroy North Vietnamese base camps in rug- ged jungle country west of Da Nang. Kicking off one of the biggest operations in months in the northern provinces, waves of United States marine helicop- ters landed the assault troops and their American advisers Need Services SPARWOOD (HNS) Con- cern was expressed recently by mobile home lot owners over the delay in servicing the lots they have purchased in the new Sparwood townsite. Many of those present at the recent council meeting felt the contractor had destroyed more trees than was necessary. Phil Moriss, district engineer, stated water and sewer ser- vices should be completed soon. B.C. Hydro will not install un- derground wiring until all oth- shorlly after daylight in an area 25 to 40 miles east of, the Lao- tian frontier. No major- open lions have taken place there in years. Only light contact was re- ported in the early hours of the operation. The attack force included three battalions of South Viet- namese marines recently with- drawn from Cambodia and two battalions of South Vietnamese special forces troops, merce- naries paid by the United States and trained and led by U.S. Green Berets. Their primary targets were two North Vietnamese base areas west and southwest of Thuong Due. It is the site of a Special Forces camp which was 'under sporadic rocket and mor- tar fire until about two weeks ago. Col. Nguyen Van Thien, the commander of the operation, said his force is taking advan- tage of good weather to spoil potential North Vietnamese buildups for large ground at- tacks such as they have almost always made in August.

Soviet Ballistic Missiles Given Greater Advances WASHINGTON (AP) United States defence sources say Soviet tests this year indi- cate the Russians have im- proved the accuracy of their SS-11 intercontinental ballistic missiles. Officials stopped short of say- ing the SS-11 has become a seri- ous threat to the United States' own but they strongly suggested it has progressed in that direction. The information became available -as controversy mounted over whether the Sovi- ets have stopped building new missile sites recently, perhaps to enhance chances for agree- ment on nuclear arms limita- tion. Jonathan Bingham (Dem N.Y.) said in the House of Rep- resentatives here he has in- formation that the Russians re- frained from building any new SS-9 missile sites for the nine months before June. Defence officials insisted that intelligence, gleaned from ob- servations o f reconnaissance satellites, shows the Russians began new sites for the giant SS-9 missiles, as well as smaller SS-H and SS-13 intercontinental missiles, in the last several monllis. Officials contend these reports support Defence Secretary Mel- vin R. Laird's statement last week that Soviet missile "mo- mentum has not slowed down" and that the Russians pushed ahead with new starts both after U.S'.-Soviet arms limita- tion talks opened in Helsinki last November and since those negotiations resumed in Vienna in mid-April. ALL MAY BE THREATS Although the SS-9 with its multi-warhead has been billed by the Nixon administration as the chief threat to U.S. Minute- man missiles in a surprise at- tack, the SS-11 and the SS-13 are regarded by military experts as part of tlie potential danger to the U.S. land-based deterrent force. Government authorities famil- iar with the latest intelligence evaluations says the Russians have about 300 SS-9 missile launchers poised for use or under construction. This compares with Lalid's estimate earlier this year ot about 280 SS'-9s. Current assessments place the total of SS-lls at more than 700 and the more-advanced SS-13 at nearly 100. There is no evidence yet that the Russians are developing multiple warheads for the SS- lls and the S'S-13s. However, tests monitored this year have noted not only im- proved accuracy for the SS-11, but greater versatility, involv- ing more sophisticated devices, such as decoys, for penetrating anti-missile defences.
