  • Description

    IN VIETNAM, THE VIETCONG HAVE CALLED FOR ANOTHER CEASEFIRE. THEY'VE PROPOSED A FOUR-DAY TRUCE TO MARK THE VIETNAMESE NEW YEAR WHICH BEGINS ON JANUARY 20TH. SO FAR THERE'S BEEN NO OFFICIAL REACTION FROM THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT, OR FROM WASHINGTON. ALTHOUGH AMERICAN MARINES HAVE BEEN IN ACTION AGAINST THE VIETCONG IN SOUTH VIETNAM, BOMBING RAIDS ON NORTH VIETNAM HAVE NOT STARTED AGAIN SINCE THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE. ON THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS THERE WAS A SCARE IN DANANG WHEN THE MILITARY POLICE HEADQUARTERS CAUGHT ON FIRE.

    THE MILITARY POLICE HEADQUARTERS IS NEAR THE BIG AMERICAN AIR BASE, AND WHEN THE ALARM WAS GIVEN, UNITED STATES FIRE TRUCKS RUSHED TO THE SPOT. ALTHOUGH THE FIRE WAS QUICKLY BROUGHT UNDER CONTROL, THE FIRST AND SECOND FLOORS OF THE BUILDING WERE GUTTED. THE CAUSE OF THE FIRE IS BEING INVESTIGATED.

    THE FOLLOWING DAY DANANG WAS THE SCENE OF SOME SHARP EXCHANGES BETWEEN THE VIETCONG AND AMERICAN MARINES. ONE MARINE SQUAD WAS REPORTED TO HAVE KILLED 15 VIETCONG IN A CLASH. AND IN ANOTHER ENGAGEMENT, TWO HOURS LATER, 40 VIETCONG WERE KILLED AFTER AN AMERICAN COUNTER-ATTACK.
