Almost unanimously, top-rank-
ing American staff officers in
Vietnam yesterday welcomed the
Democratic National Convention's
refusal to endorse an uncondi-
tional halt in the bombing of
North Vietnam.
"You won't find anyone around
here who wants to halt the bomb-
ing," one officer said.
Top South Vietnamese. officials
also expressed gratification pri-
vately. There was no official com-
ment from President Nguyen Van
Thieu.
With the current bombing pol-
icy generally endorsed by the plat-
forms of both U.S. parties, soldiers
in Vietnam tended to react to the
Democratic nomination of Vice
President Hubert H. Humphrey
according to their personal poli-
tics.
Ranking officers would not
speak for publication because of'
the military's traditional non-
political role. But privately staff
officers admitted that the up-
surge of peace sentiment at the
Democratic convention caused ap-
prehension.
"I was beginning to have my
doubts about Humphrey," one
senior officer said. "Now that's
out of the way."
It was noted appreciatively in
Saigon that the U.S. commander
in Vietnam, Gen. Creighton
Abrams, had been quoted on the
convention floor as strongly op-
posing any bombing halt.
Rep. Hale Boggs, chairman of
the Platform Committee, told the
convention, that Abrams had in-
formed him North Vietnam could
increase its offensive capabilities
five-fold in the neighborhood of
the demilitarized zone if the
bombing was stopped.
Abrams still holds this view, a
staff officer said, and it is shared
almost unanimously by his staff
and subordinate commanders. The
South Vietnamese government
holds a similar position with the
added belief that the bombing
should also be maintained for

political reasons unless the North
Vietnamese display a willingness
to de-escalate.
Among GIs, Republicans gen-
erally predicted victory for Rich-
ard M. Nixon, Democrats were
favorable to Humphrey, and there
was some regret that Sen. Eugene
J. McCarthy didn't get the nom-
ination.
At home, the Vietnam plank
showed promise of splitting the
Democratic vote with many Dem-
ocratic voters voicing support for
the several minor anti-war tick-
e ts.
Sen. Eugene McCarthy indicated
yesterday he does not plan to
campaign for Humphrey, but will
instead concentrate his efforts to
elect anti-Vietnam war candi-
dateh to the Senate.
McCarthy's plan to campaign
for dove candidates for the Sen-
ate would keep him within the
framework of the party without
exposing him to the charge by his
followers that he had sold them
out by actively backing Hum-
phrey.

300 units of public housing has
sparked a request by Mayor
Huleher for "more initiative by
the private sector" in creating
low-cost housing.
A conference of area builders,
architects, building trades union
representatives, city officials and
representatives of churches and
civic organizations met at the
mayor's invitation last night to
discuss possible alternatives to the
'Housing Commission's request.
TASK FORCE
At the end of the general meet-
ing, Hulcher named a temporary
task force composed of selected
representatives of the groups
present to study the problem in
fur ther detail.
{"This is the last big chance for
private people to step in and meet
this need, or the Council will have
to proceed with more public
housing," said Joseph Edwards,
who has worked with both the
Council and the Housing Commis-
sion.
David Byrd, a Negro architect
currently serving on the Planning
Commission disrupted the hither-
to congenial, atmosphere of the
conference when he said "You're
really not getting at the core of
the problem, and that is my peo-
ple.

per cent mortgage program is a
great thing but it won't meet the
needs of the people making $1,000
or $2,000 a year who we are sup-
posedly trying to help. I urge that
you do not press home ownership
on people who can't afford it."
The 1968 housing bill, which
Congress has not yet appropriated
funds, was the focus of the con-
ference discussion. The bill sup-
posedly provides incentives for
the private development of homes,
for individual ownership with
mortgage commitments of a low
as one per cent.
