Soviet Ousted in Attempt

Department announced yesterday
the expulsion of a Soviet diplomat
for trying to get secret data from
an American citizen for "large
amounts of money."
"The FBI thwarted these at-
tempts" by Valentin A. Revin,
listed as a science officer at the
Soviet Embassy here, State De-
partment press officer Robert J.
SMcCloskey said.
But beyond the barebones an-
nouncement, he declined all com-
ment including the American in-
volved, whether the FBI will make
an arrest, and how large were the
The secrecy remaining about the
case contrasted with the big pub-
licity in the latest spy incident
here--the uncovering of a Czech
attempt last July to plant elec-
tronic eavesdropping devices in
the State Department's headquar-
ters building.
Revin was identified as a third
secretary, age 34, with wife and
one child, assigned to the Soviet
Embassy in Washington since
July 26, 1963.
McCloskey said the Soviet
charge d'affaires, Alexander I.
Zinchuk, was called to the State
Department Thursday and handed
a note ordering Revin's "immed-
iate departure from this country"
because he "was engaged in ac-
tivities incompatible with his dip-
lomatic status during his assign-
ment in the United States."
What Revin was engaged in,
said McCloskey without further
elaboration, was "attempting to
obtain classified information from
an American citizen in return for
large sums of money."

PHOM PENH, Cambodia (.P) -
France and Cambodia asserted
yesterday that outside interven-
tion is turning the Vietnamese war
into an international conflict.
They demanded that all foreign
troops get out of Viet Nam.
A communique declaring that
"all acts of war must cease on
Vietnamese territory" was signed
by French President Charles de
Gaulle and Prince Norodom Siha-
nouk, Cambodia's chief of state.
It seemed evident from a speech
by De Gaulle the day before that
by foreign troops, the French
president meant U.S. forces in
South Viet Nam. But the wording
of the communique was broad
enough to include Soviet and Red

becoming almost hysterical. The
Reds promised "merciless punish-
ment" to anyone who takes part
in the election. They called Pre-
mier Nguyen Cao Ky a puppet and
a traitor.
The United States, one broad-
cast said, has supplanted the
French in Viet Nam and this is
like giving the people "a choice
between cholera and the bubonic

Diplomats Seek Draft To Keep
Than t as Secretary-General

diplomats concentrated yesterday
on how to draft U Thant to con-
tinue as secretary-general. Talk
about a successor faded into the
background for the time being.
U.S. Ambassador Arthur J.
Goldberg, in the forefront of the
draft movement, sent a personal
note to Thant asking him to re-
consider his decision not to offer
himself for a new term.
A U.S. spokesman said the note
was intended to back up the state-
ment issued by Goldberg several
hours after Thant's decision was
announced Thursday. The United

States appealed to him to con-
tinue in office beyond Nov. 3, the
date when his five-year term ex-
pires. The United States made
plain a limited term would be
There was no reaction from
Thant, who was reported out of
the city vacationing with friends.
A spokesman for the secretary-
general refused to comment on
the draft possibilities. UN diplo-
mats were reluctant to express an

Council bears primary responsibil-
ity in the situation. Mechanics

were being left in the hands of the
four Asian-African members -
Jordan, Nigeria, Mali and Uganda.
Ambassadors Muhammad H. el-
Farra of Jordan and J. T. F. Iyalla
of Nigeria conferred with Gold-
berg, and also with the heads of
the British and French missions.
They will confer also with So-
viet Ambassador 'Nikolai T. Fe-
dorenko. Reports that the Soviet
bloc was taking a dim view of a
draft movement were denied by
an East European diplomat.
Members of the 34-nation Afri-
can group conferred privately and
issued a statement expressing
great concern over Thant's deci-
Diplomats did not expect a
council meeting until late next
week. Fedorenko is the council
president for September. The ses-
sion would be a private one, as is
customary when a decision con-
cerning a secretary-general is be-
fore the council.

"To bring an end to these hos-
tilities, it is necessary first. of all
that the powers whose interests
and ideologies are opposed in In-
dochina renew with all the in-
terested countries the engagement
to rigorously observe the clauses
of the 1954 Geneva accords."
Meanwhile, stepped-up terror-
ist attacks and student radio
threats yesterday signaled a con-
centrated Communist effort to
disrupt the national election Sept.
11 in the Saigon area, which con-
tains almost a quarter of South
Viet Nam's -population.
The military government, which
wants a big turnout here and else-
where, countered with a decree
making persons convicted of sabo-
taging the voting liable to life
imprisonment. The decree waslis-
sued by Lt. Gen. Nguyen Van
Thieu, the chief of state.
The Viet Cong radio labeled the
guerrilla force around Saigon a
"divine sword" pledged to thwart
creation at the ballot box of a
Constituent Assembly.
The guerrillas punctuated their
threats with a series of attacks
in the Saigon-Gia Dinh capital
district. They blew up a civilian
bus, killing 12 and wounding 10.
They bombed a village election
office northwest of the city,
wounding eight civilians.
Some U.S. officials considered
the Communist radio attacks were
