Cabinet lies ignations Reflect Viet Nam Regi(

By KENNETH L. WHITING
Associated Press News Analyst
SAIGON-Deputy Premier Nguy-
en Luu Vien submitted his, resig-
nation from the cabinet this week.
Yesterday, 24 hours later, he sat
smiling beside Premier Cao Ky
and heard Ky announce that Vien
will act as head of government
*while Vietnamese leaders attend

Manila-.
His resignation was not officially

No officials would talk. The peo-
ple directly involved did not seem
certain of the status of anything.
*But a piecing together of often
contradictory reports gives this
picture:
*Ky's regime is not imperiled, on-
ly embarrassed, by the dissension.
The 35-man Cabinet has no vital

cessions.
Two of those who quit seem de.-
termined to stay out. At least two
have returned to the fold.
The resignations were prompted
by Viet Nam's emotion-charged
North-South regionalism overlaid
by oldtime politicking.

Viet Nam historically was sep-
arated into the rice-rich French
colony of Cochin China in the
South's Mekong delta, the Man-
darin protectorate of Tonkin or
present-day North Viet Nam, and
the old imperial Buddhist kingdom
of Annam along the central coast.
Ky and many top leaders in Sai-
gon are refugees from what is now
North Viet Nam. Ky comes from
Hanoi.
Even though Ky and other
northerners came to the South
12 or more years ago, they are still
mistrusted by Southerners, espe-

cially since taking

ectd S e. 1C1 to write a new con-

progressive element. Southerners
won only 44 of the assembly's 117
seats though they comprise two-
thirds of the total population.

Ky accepted Kha's resignation
and praised his performance while
in office.

Much Southern displeasure was
directed against Brig. Gen. Nguyen
Ngoc Loan, chief of the national
police, security service and immi-
gration force, who had selzed Loc.
Loan denied Loc was under ar-
rest but said he was "invited for a

Loan declined to specify the
charges.

the only serious threat Ky might

Talks Show
Interest In
Nuclear Ban
Top Ambassadors
Open Anal Debate
Over Disarmanient
UNITED NATIONS (P - The
United States and the Soviet
Union dleclared yesterday that
prospects were improved for agree-
ment on a treaty to ban the spread
of nuclear weapons. Both warned
also that substantial differences
remained.
U.S. Ambassador Arthur J.
Goldberg and Soviet Ambassador
Nikolai T. Feddorenko made the
statements in opening the annual
disarmament debate in the as-
sembly's 121-nation main Political
Committee.
Claims Progress
Goldberg told the committee
that substantial progress has been
made in th e 17-nation disarma-
ment talks in Geneva. He said
the United States was encouraged
*also by statements made by Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gro-
..myko after his recent talks with
President Johnson and Secretary
ofState Dean Rusk in Washing-
With that in mind, Goldberg de-
clared he was happy to inform the
committee his country and the
Soviet Union "have agreed to take
Sadvantage of this new and more
promising situation.
Discussion Exploratory
"'We are engaged in a continuing
and joint search for mutually ac-
ceptable ways of overcoming our
remaining differences. Our discus-
sions at this stage must of neces-
Ssity be exploratory. They will not
be easy since important differences
remain."
Agreement on a treaty would be
another milestone on disarma-
mnent similar to the limited test-
ban treaty signed in Moscow in
1963. France and Communist
*China have never signed that
treaty, and there is no assurance
they would sign a non-prolif era-
tion pact.

LONDON UP)-The British gov-
ernment reported yesterday the
biggest jump in unemployment in
four years, with a winter of labor
strife in prospect.
The Labor government's policy
of deflationary austerity waG held
directly responsible for much of
the 97,027 increase in the jobless
since Sept. 22, making the total
unemployed 437,229.
Left-wing Laborites called the
report on unemployment "most
gravely disturbing."

big Austin Motors plant at Long-
bridge because of a strike oi car

ago at the British Motor Corp.,

makers of Austin,. at Oxford. The
drivers walked out when the cam-
pany announced 12,000 men will
be laid off next month becaus.e of
the austerity measures.
Behind the labor disputes at
G nMrand othes atb Vauxhal, a
the Rover Motor Co., was general
discontent with Prime Minister
Harold Wilson's six-month freeze
of wages and prices.
Freeze Compulsory
A voluntary freeze was ordered
by the government July 20. The
freeze was made compulsory Oct.
5 after some unions and firms re-
fused to observe it.
Wilson made the freeze com-
pulsory during Parliament's sum-

mer' recess and is seeking legts-
lative approval next Wednesday.
He almost certainly will be as-
sailed not only by opposition Con-
servatives because of the growing
business stagnation but by leftist
of his own Labor party because of
the hardship for workers.
The outright freeze is to end
Jan. 20. but the government al-
ready has said It will maintain a
program of "extreme restraint" on
wages and prices for a further six
months.
In the House of Commons on
Thursday, left wingers charged the
governmnet was maintaining no
effective control on prices and said
the freeze was hitting workers ex-
clusively. Government spokesmen
rejected this charge.

Increase in Clothing Prices
Drives Living Costs Upward

WASHINGTON (A)-A jump in
clothing prices pushed the cost of
living to a new peak in September
prices since la st dMay. Frther in
creaes are expected in the months
just ahead.
In reporting yesterday the Labor
Department said its consumer
price index rose three-tenths of 1
per cent during the month to a
record 114.1 per cent of the 1957-
59 base period.
This meant that consumers paid
$11.41 in September for the same
goods and services which cost $10
about eight years ago.
Other Increases
SAlthough higher clothing prices,
especially for women, were prima-
rily responsible for this eighth
straight monthly advance, the
Bureau of Labor Statistics said
housing and medical costs also in-
creased while automobile 'prices
declined.
Living, cost during September
were 3.5 per cent above a year
earlier and bureau Commissioner
Arthur Ross said he expects that
trend to continue through the end
of 1966.
