THE INCREASES WERE ANNOUNCED BY THE 73-YEAR-OLD PRESIDENT IN A RADIO BROADCAST AND IN HANOI NEWSPAPERS. HE SAID THE NORTH VIETNAMESE PEOPLE WERE DETERMINED TO STRUGGLE ON TO COMPLETE VICTORY.

    THE NATIONAL FRONT FOR LIBERATION, POLITICAL WING OF THE VIET CONG IN SOUTH VIETNAM, HAS ALSO ANNOUNCED MEASURES TO EXPAND ITS GUERILLA FORCES AND TO INTENSIFY THE STRUGGLE.

WITH SMALL ARMS AND AUTOMATIC FIRE, INCLUDING A 75MM RECOIL-LESS RIFLE, THEY DAMAGED THE STATION BUILDING AND SEVERAL VEHICLES. VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT FORCES RETALIATED BY CHASING THE GUERILLAS BACK INTO SWAMP COUNTRY JUST NORTH OF THE SAIGON RIVER, WHERE THEY CLAIM TO HAVE KILLED TEN ENEMY MEN AND CAPTURED A NUMBER OF WEAPONS.
