15 Radical Buddhists

By The Associated Press
SAIGON-Radical Buddhists op-
posed to President-elect Nguyen
Van Thieu nailed down at least
15 seats yesterday in the ballot
tabulations for South. Vietnam's
137-member House of Represent-]
The House is the most powerful
body in the new civilian-based
Still incomplete tabulations gave
Roman Catholic candidates 12 or
possibly more seats while army of-
ficers, who may or may not sup-
port Thieu, had 15. Indications
were that Thieu," himself a Cath-
olic, could count on support from
Catholic members on some issues
but not on others.
The Hoa Hao and Caot Dai reli-
gious sects captured a handful of
seats. Both these sects have tried
to remain aloof from the war but
in the past six months they began
to slip into the government camp.
There is no evidence, however,
they support the present programs
of the Thieu government. Both
sects appears to be seeking to im-
prove their own positions within
the current constitutional frame-
Thieu and Premier Nguyen Cao
Ky will be inaugurated as presi-
dent and vice president Oct. 31.
Thieu then will appoint a premier,
who- will serve largely as an ad-
The two military chiefs were
elected along with a 60-member
Senate on Sept. 3.
The presidency has far less pow-
er under the new constitution than
does the president of the United
Like the House, the Senate is
splintered into a variety of polit-
ical factions and U.S. diplomats,

foresee difficulties ahead for Thieu
if the new National Assembly does
not break down into bodies with
a simple government faction and
an opposition.
The -radical Buddhists of Thich
Tri Quang apparently made some
headway in Sunday's election for
his attempt to lead his minority
Buddhist faction back into a posi-
tion of power after the failure last
year of his street campaign to
overthrow Premier Ky's military
The monk's chief spokesman in

the House is likely to be Prof. Ho'
Huu Tuong, a former Trotskyite
and neutralist barred from run-
ning in the Senate race Sept. 3
because of his proneutralist views.
He captured a seat from Saigon.
One senior American diplomat
predicted that because of the mul-
tiplicity of political groups in both
the upper and lower houses, legis-
lation such as land reform prob-
ably will go down.
There were suggestions that
possibly for years to come, the
popularly elected government may

work against the hoped for ideal
of a broadly based political force
with the necessary direction and
energy to woo the peasants' loyal-
ty away from the Communists.
Thieu will take office not only
without a clear majority loyal to
him in both houses but without
knowing where members stand on
The least organized and most
confusing political force is the
House, which under the constitu-
tion is the most powerful single
group in the new government.

DETROIT (P) -- Speculation is
growing that the United Auto
Workers, with a contract won
through a seven-week strike at
Ford, will take on the giant of the
manufacturing world - General:
Motors-in its next tussle for new
money. -
The UAW's international exe-
cutive board is expected to name
the next target before the end of
the week. It met in Detroit yes-
terday and will convene again to-
While Ford has been shut down,
after building relatively few cars,
GM and Chrysler have been pour-
ing out 1968 models. G4 has built
747,912 and Chrysler 370,179.
A strike by GM's 325,000, hourly
rated workers would cost the un-
ion about $8.1 million a week, plus
an additional $12 million month-
ly to defray insurance payments
of strikers.
The union's strike fund shrunk
from $67 million to $40 million
during the Ford strike.
But the UAW has proclaimed
loudly that General Motors must
-like Chrysler and Ford-permit
union committeemen to devote
their full time to processing griev-
ances and otherwise tending to
union business while remaining
on the company payroll.
Even while striking Ford, UAW
President Walter P. Reuther's an-
griest words were directed at
General Motors, which he claim-
ed had formed a conspiracy with
Ford and Chrysler to thwart the
union's achieving its new con-
tract goals.
When he announced Ford as his
target for winning a pattern-set-
ting contract, Reuther said flatly
he would go next to Chrysler and
then to GM. But when he had
won at Ford, he refused to say
Chrysler would be next.
He mentioned GM as a possi-
bility. Working conditions, rather
than economics, are expected to
pose the major problems at GM.

PITTSBURG (A) - Steel haul-
ers voted yesterday to end their
nine-week rebellion that spread
violence and vandalism across
eight states and bottled up an
estimated half a million tons of
steel in mill warehouses.
William Kusley, the man who
started the wildcat walkout in
protest against a three-year na-
tional contract negotiated by the
Teamsters Union last spring, said
in Gary. Ind., that the trucks
wouldrroll again Tuesday morn-
ing. He said 67 per cent of the,
10,000 to 20.000 striking drivers
approved a settlement that prom-
ises the drivers $10 an hour for
every hour they wait at mill load-
ing docks after four hours, a 5
per cent general hike in shipping,

cost and a special committee to
represent the independent before
the Teamsters. *
The steel haulers, who own their
trucksand contract out individu-
ally, earn a minimum of 73 per
cent of shipping costs under the
Teamsters contract. They had
originally asked for a 6 per cent
boost, in their share of costs and
$15 for every hour they wait after'
two hours.
Pennsylvania Gov. Raymond P.
Shafer, who called together the
seven-state mediation panel that
drafted the settlement a week ago,
said "I extend my heart-felt thanks
to all the representatives of the
governors who worked so dili-
gently to bring about this result."

Pennsylvania Secretary of La-
bor and Industry William J. Hart,
who piloted the panel, said, "I am
always happy to see hostilities
come to an end."
Hart acknowledged that he was
taking a caculated risk last Fri-
day when he told the strikers
they could stay out until "hell
freezes over" if they rejected the
second proposal. The idea, he said,
was to pressure the truckers into
returning to work.
A dynamite blast wrecked his
summer home near Butler, Pa.,
Sunday. but no one was home.
The bombing was the last of a
rash of beatings, shootings and
bombings which stalked the dis-
pute from the beginning.

sources said yesterday that Soviet
naval personnel possibly super-
vised the Egyptians firing of So-
viet-made surface rocket missiles
which sank the Israeli destroyer
As Egypt braced for possible
reprisals, Israeli Prime Minister
Levi Eshkol denounced the sinking
an "an act of war in open sea,"
and newspapers in Israel demanded
vengeance for the attack that sent
the Elath to the bottom of the
Mediterranean off the Sinai Pen-
insula coast Saturday with the
probable loss of 53 lives.
The weekend sinking gave fresh
impetus to the search by UN dip-
lomats for a formula that would
make a start toward permanent
peace in the tense Middle East.

But in Washington, Israeli For-

Informants in Tel Aviv de-
clared they doubted if Egyptian
crews have had time to be trained
enough to fire the missiles, which
locked on the destroyer by radar.
"We expect renewed Israeli ag-
gression any time," an Egyptian
official said in Cairo. "Our armed
forces are constantly on the alert."
Israeli government leaders con-
ferred with military officers in
Jerusalem, informed sources said.
Dfficials were tight-lipped over

Claiming the Elath was a mile
inside Egypt's 12-mile limit, Cairo
asked that UN observers be sent
to Port Said at the north end of
the Suez Canal.
Israeli officials, who reported
the Elath was a mile or more out-
side Egypt's territorial waters, de-
clared the requesttfor UN observ-
ers was Cairo's attempt to head
off Israeli reprisal.
"This despicable attack was
launched without any cause," Esh-
kol told the Israeli nation in a

attack. The blood of our sailors,
like the blood of our civilians and
soldiers, will not be shed wanton-
As he spoke, Israeli helicopters
and navy ships searched the sea
without success for 36 men still
missing. Two more sailors died of
burns during the night, bringing
the death toll to 17. Another 46 of
the crew of 202 were wounded.
In the midst of the latest Mid-
east crisis, Marshal Matvei V.
Zakharov, Soviet military chief of
staff and deputy defense minister,
arrived unannounced in Cairo.
Western diplomats in Moscow said
they believed the Kremlin was
concerned about the possible con-
sequences of the Elath's sinking
and Zakharov had gone to Egypt
to look over the situation.
Some UN delegates expressed

hope that a resolution would be
ready for Security Council action
this week, but other said they ex-
pected more time would be need-
d'There is no cause for excessive
optimism about an early council
meeting," one nonaligned diplomat
said. "But the trend is forward."
According to one informed dip-
lomatic source, the resolution un-I
der consideration would rule out
any territorial gains through the
use of force and recognize the
need for an Israeli withdrawal
from the Egyptian, Jordanian and
Syrian teritory Israel seized in the
six-day Arab-Israeli war last June.

SAIGON (A)-With 4,100 fresh
troops from the United States,
the U.S. Army. yesterday began a
beef up of its fighting power in
the most dangerous sector of the
Vietnam war-the 1st Corps area
below North Vietnam's border.
The landing of troops of the
198th Light Infantry Brigade from
ships at Chu Lai will boost U.S.
manpower in the northern-most
provinces of South Vietnam to
111,000 and bring overall U.S.
manpower in the whole of South
Vietnam to 468,100.
The new troops, activated only
in May at Ft. Hood,rTex., will be
coming ashore over the next few
days for assignments with the
Army's America Division, which
has been spreading out over the
five northern provinces since

tarized zone which separates
North and South Vietnam.

gade at Chu Lai came during an-
other lull in the ground action in;
