GO VERNMENT COMPLAINTS INCREASING:
Vietnam Anti-Americanism Rises
Informant To Testify
At Civil Rights Trial
is on the rise in South Vietnam
and most surprising is that much
of its is coming from the military
Newspapers known to be con-
trolled by the military, or to reflect
South Vietnamese military think-
ing, have been accusing the United
States of interfering in internal
The newspaper articles, which
have reached banner-headline pro-
portions in some papers; also show
a fear by the South Vietnamese
military that the United States
may try to force South Vietnam's
generals into a peace settlement
with the Communists that the
generals consider unacceptable.
"Without due vigilance, the
bonds of friendship tied by blood
between the Vietnamese and
American peoples risk being cut
off and both nations might become
foes to each other," one news-
U.S. officials say privately that
they have noticed an increase in
anti-American feeling among the
military, as well as, among stu-
dents and other groups. They
ascribe it to what they say is a
" growing feeling of confidence
among Vietnamese that American
help is no longer a matter of life
and death, as it was in 1965 when
U.S. troops were first sent here in
It also is pointed out that
throughout history an influx of
foreign troops in any country
has produced frictions. Added to
this in the present situation, there
is the traditional Vietnamese dis-
like of foreigners and the long
years that they have struggled
against invaders from other lands.
It is agreed in many quarters
that for a variety of reasons
stronger anti-American feeling is
coming to the forefront and this
is most obviously expressed in the
South Vietnamese press.
One of the most outspoken
newspapers has been Cong Chung-
The People-a newspaper under
the control of Brig. Gen. Nguyen
Ngos Loan, director of the na-
tional police and a supporter of
Premier and Vice President-elect
Nguyen Cao Ky.
The newspaper said recently:
"A plot is being hatched by' the
French with the tacit approval of
the Americans, British, Russians
and other Eastern Europeans-
especially the Poles-to impel the
Vietnamese people into accepting
their peace formula. We must not
let the foreign nations do again
what the French did in 1954."

that divided Vietnam were signed.

Jordan, a man of mystery since
his grand jury testimony about theF
1964 deaths of three civil rights
workers, waited in the wings yes-
terday as a key witness in the con-l

However, Jordan's case was
transferred to another jurisdiction
after he testified before a federal
grand jury that indicted the men.
Since, the FBI has refused to give
The only official statement from
the FBI concerning Jordan has
been, "He is in federal protection."
Five armed guards,\ with their
pistols drawn, whisked Jordan into
the Post Office building where
the trial went through its third'
day. They entered hurridly through
a side door, but did not go to the
third-floor courtroom immediately.
In opening statements, Monday
the Justice Department told the
all-white jury of seven men and
five women that it would offer
testimony from informants paid by
the FBI. It did not give any names.
A dozen lawyers for the de-
fense failed earlier to uncover the
name of the informants who tip-
ped the FBI to the location of the
three men's graves near Phila-
delphia, Miss. The bodies were un-
earthed beneath a farm pond dam
after an intensive 44-day search.
Government attorneys, in out-
lining their case to the jury, have
said they would prove that de-
outr sheriff Price, one of the de-
fendants arrested the three, held
th m for several hours, then re-
lcas d them so that kidnapers
co'd capture and shoot them.
