SAIGON, South Viet Nam -
Elated Premier Nguyen Cao Ky
reported yesterday an 80 percent
turnout in South Viet Nam's elec-
tions for a constitution-drafting
assembly and said this presages
"a brighter, more beautiful future"
for his nation, torn by war for 20
years.
The returns showed the election
of only 20 military men and 97
civilians, somne of them critical of
military rule.
Ky called the outpouring of vo-
ters in the face" of Communist
threats and terrorism a stunning
defeat for the Viet Cong. The
clandestine Viet Cong radio ang-
rily branded the elections a fraud
built upon "concocted phony fig-
ures."
Ky Critics
While some of the civilians elec-
ted to the Constituent Assembly,
due to meet Sept. 26, are critical
of Ky and his regime, all are anti-
Communists. All candidates had
been screened and those deemed
to harbor Communist or neutralist
sympathies were barred from run-
ning.I
Officials recognized that the
turnout was partly the result of
the drive by Ky's regime to ob-
tain a big vote. However, the size
of the vote surprised some prev-
iously pessimistic U.S. officials
who had felt Ky would be lucky
to obtain a majority or perhaps a
60 percent turnout.
! Foremost among the elected as-.
semblymen is a former chief of
state, Phan Khuc Suu, 61, an inde-
pendent who was jailed by the
regime of President Ngo Dinh Di-
em before it was overthrown Nov.
1, 1963. Suu became civilian chief.
of state in October 1964. He bowed
4 out in July 1965, after a coup that
brought Ky to power.
Separatists
Also in the assembly are two
mountain tribesmen who once led
separatist movement, and such
outspoken critics as former Eco-
nomics Minister Tran Van Van.
The task of the assembly is to
draw up, by March, a constitution
to replace the one thrown out
with the overthrow of Diem.
Other elections will be held la-
ter to fill the offices the constitu-
tion provides. These most likely
will include a president and a bal-
ancing Congress. Ky says he then
will turn power over to the elected
officials. This is expected to take
a year or so.
4.2 Million
In the voting Sunday, 4-2 mil-
lion of South Viet Nam's 5,288,512
registered voters balloted for 108
assembly seats, the government re-
ported. The other nine seats went
to mountain tribesmen who used
their own traditional methods to
select their representatives.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO READ
1000 to 2000 WORDS A MNUTE
WITH FULL COMPREHENSION & RETENTION
EASE PRESSURE-SAVE TIME-IMPROVE CONCENTRATION
You can read 150-200 pages an hour using the ACCELERATED READING method.
You'll learn to comprehend at speeds of 1,000 to 2,000 words a minute-3 to 6 times as fast
as you read now. And retention is excellent.
This is NOT a skimming method; you definitely read every word.
You can apply the ACCELERATED READING method to textbooks and factual
material as well as to literature and fiction. The author's style is not lost when you read at
these speeds. In fact, your accuracy and enjoyment in reading will be increased.
Consider what this new reading ability will enable you to accomplish - in your
required reading and in the additional reading you want to do. You'll save many hundreds
of hours.
No machines, projectors, or apparatus are used while learning the ACCELERATED
READING method. Thus you avoid developing ANY dependence upon external equipment in
reading rapidly. The new reading skill is permanently retained for this reason.
Afternoon classes and Evening classes in ACCELERATED READING will be taught
each TUESDAY, at the BELL TOWER INN, adjacent to the U. of M. campus, beginning on
October 4. The semester ends on December 6. This is our seventh semester of classes in
Ann Arbor.
