    Background: SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT FORCES HAVE MOUNTED A BIG OFFENSIVE AGAINST THE VIETCONG IN KIEN HOA PROVINCE, SOUTH OF SAIGON. ACCOMPANIED BY UNITED STATES ADVISERS, THEY LANDED ON A BEACH AND WERE SOON IN ACTION AGAINST SUSPECTED VIETCONG INSTALLATIONS INLAND.

    LATER, THE FORCES DISCOVERED A LARGE CACHE OF VIETCONG WEAPONS. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SAID MOST OF THE WEAPONS APPEARED TO HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED IN THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC, AND WERE OF A MODERN DESIGN.

    (MEANWHILE, U.S. CARRIER-BASED AIRCRAFT TODAY (MONDAY) BOMBED VIETCONG POSITIONS IN KIEN HOA PROVINCE AND ELSEWHERE IN SOUTH VIETNAM. AT THE SAME TIME, IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT 3,500 MORE AMERICAN PARATROOPS WILL ARRIVE SOON).
