Quat, Suu, Chieu Resign; Military
To Take Control, Authority Again
By The Associated Press
SAIGON - South Viet Nam's chief of state, prime minister, and
national legislative council issued a joint communique;yesterday saying
they are were resigning and returning power to the military.
The announcement was signed by Chief of State Phan Khac Suu,
Prime Minister Phan Huy Quat, and Maj. Gen. Pham Zuan Chieu,
chairman of the legislative council.
It seemed likely, several sources said, that the generals might ask
Suu, Quat and the council to stay on in a caretaker capacity until

Senate Cuts
AidBU Blby
$200 Million
WASHINGTON (41) - Admin-
'i stration. forces were jolted by a
$200-million cut in President Lyn-
don B. Johnson's foreign aid bill
yesterday after beating back what
one Senate leader called a "meat
ax" whack at the $3.44 billion
measure. The amendment passed
The drive for a top-to-bottom
cut in the bill was led by Sen.
Wayne Morse (D-Ore), who call-
ed the foreign aid program "a
stinking mess."
Whatever slim hopes Democrat-
ic Leader Mike Mansfield of Mon-
tana had of passing the measure
last night ended when Morse an-
nounced further plans to call up a
series of amendments Monday
proposing country - by - country
Final Vote Tuesday
Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of Il-
linois, the Republican leader, pre-
dicted the Senate will reach a
final vote on the authorization
measure Tuesday. It must be fol-
lowed later by an appropriation
bill providing whatever funds are
Morse tried first to cut the
whole program from $3.44 bil-
lion to an even $3 billion for each
of the. next two years, starting
July 1.
Administration backers led by
Sen. J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark)
stemmed this attack by a 54-26
roll call vote.
Target: Entire Program
Morse's amendment was aimed
at the program as a whole, leav-
ing it up to Johnson's foreign aid
directors to decide where to dis-
tribute the $200 million reduction
if it prevails.
Morse read from a stack of
comptroller general reports which
he said supported his contention
that the aid program is a mess.
He said aid officials "won't have
any trouble making- the cuts if
they will just read 10 per cent
of these reports."
Before taking up the Morse
amendments, administration lead-
ers defeated, 43 to 38, an attempt
by Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho)
to cut $115 million from the $1.17-
billion military aid section.
Block Expansion
Church said his amendment was
designed to block a planned ex-
pansion of military aid to Greece
and Turkey as well as to Paki-
stan and India, even though he
said "these countries are on the
verge of going to war against one

some new governing body can be
Power Goes to Army
The resignations specifically
handed over "responsibility and
power" to the armed forces, how-
ever, and it appeared the nation
would be ruled by the military
U.S. officials said the govern-
mental change followed marathon
meetings between South Vietna-
mese generals, Prime Minister
Phan Huy Quat, chief of state,
Tham Khac Suu and the legisla-
tive council..
Quat, whose four-month-old re-
gime had come under increasing
fire from domestic critics, was
said to have offered his resigna-
tion after asking the military to
mediate a constitutional dispute.
Less Serious
U.S. officials in Washington
portrayed governmental upheaval
as far less serious than previous
occasions when the military has
seized control by coup, sometimes
with fighting or threats of it.
They said North Viet Nam
should take no encouragement
from the change because Quat's
critics are people who want an
even more vigorous prosecution of
the campaign against the Viet
Cong guerrillas.
The U.S. officials also noted
that the military has always been
close to positions of power in the
Saigon government even when not
in outward control.
Minimize Impact
Although officials here tended
to minimize the impact'on the war
effort of yesterday's developments,
it seemed apparent that the
change will add some difficulties
for U.S. leaders on the scene.
Officials said that Quat's resig-
nation would wipe out the moves
toward stability which have been
built up since last February, and
reactivate the old problem of how
to keep a reasonably stable Sa.
gon government in existence.
There is some indication that
the change was brought about by
Catholic pressure.
Catholic leaders said yesterday
afternoon they would settle for
nothing less than the ouster of
Quat, whom they mistrusted com-
Planned Demonstration
Catholics had planned a massive
anti-Quat demonstration for yes-
terday but it was assumed the
rally would be called off.
It was expected the generals
would quickly organize a kind of
council or junta to avoid a total
vacuum in national leadership.
The armed forces generals last
month formally disbanded the old
armed forces council, under which
former Gen. Nguyen Khanh ruled.
Quat took office Nov. 16. Most
American officials regarded him
as one of the few figures in the
nation who seemed capable of
unifying Saigon's Catholic people.
Another issue in the collapse of
Quat's four - month - old gov-
ernment was the growing section-
alism in the country. Residents
of the southern part of the na-
tion accused Quat, whose origins
are in central Viet Nam, of fav-
oring those coming from the same
sector as well as former residents
of the north.
As for the battle against the
Viet Cong went yesterday, Viet-
namese paratroopers p u s h e d
through dense jungle seeking a
Viet Cong force that devastated
the town of Dong Xoai and its
American special forces camp.
The 52nd Vietnamese Ranger
Battalion, which suffered heavy
casualties in pushing the-Commu-
nists out of the community 60
miles north of Saigon, remained
behind, handling the many dead
and wounded-soldier and civilian,
adult and child. I

Rank Raised
By Johnson
By The Associated Press
HOUSTON - President Lyndon
B. Johnson visited the two Gemini
4 astronauts Majors James Mc-
Divitt and Edward White in Hous-
ton yesterday.
The president raised the pilots
from the rank of major to the
Air Force rank of Lieutenant
Colonel and nominated two other
astronauts, Gemini 3 command
pilot Virgil Grissom and and Mer-
cury astronaut Gordon Cooper for
the same rank.
The promotions are subject to
approval from the. Senate.
Gives Okay
Also today United States as-
tronauts got a green- light from
medical authorities for a planned
seven-day flight into space. Flight
Surgeon Charles Berry said he
saw no obstacles for a 14-day
"I don't advocate jumping to 14
days next," Berry told a news
conference, "but after looking at
preliminary data from McDivitt
and White, I would say the out-
look was very bright."
Berry said some problems must
be overcome, the biggest being the
work-sleep cycle of four hours
work and four hours sleep.
More Rest
"We need to give the man more
rest," he said, "at least six hours."
Another problem is dehydration,
long a bugaboo of manned space
"We must be able to measure
how much water is left for drink-
ing," he said. McDivitt and White
weren't drinking much water at
the beginning of the flight because
they were afraid they wouldn't
have enough left for the four
days," he said. '
Pre-Launch Condition
Berry said both Gemini astro-
nauts were back to their pre-
launch physical conditions, four
days after their return from space.
Berry, who is in charge Of all
medical programs at the manned
spacecraft center, said he con-
tinued to be amazed at the fine
condition of the two astronauts.
"Early data indicates man is
perfectly capable of carrying out
tasks in space, inside the space-
craft or outside," he said.
The surgeon said he didn't an-
ticipate any future ailments for
the two spacemen as a result of
their four-day trip.

The House Ways and Means Committee slashed $6.3 mil-

House Majority Leader Joseph Kowalski (D-Detroit) said
that he will do "everything in my power to see that the

Study Resident~tial College Plan

The Residential College Facul-

comprehensive examinations and
a three year undergraduate pro-

ning for the new self-contained
college, a recent analysis by the
committee indicates.
The analysis, written for a
"Workshop on Liberal Arts Edu-
cation" in which three members
of the- committee will exchange
ideas with educators from other
schools, summarizes the progress
of a year-and-a-half of planning
and lists some questions which
have arisen in the committee's
The progress report says the
work of planning is about half-
done for the college, which is ex-
pected to be completed near North

indicate the general trend of the
unique college.
Questions Posed
The questions concern other
school's experiences with: abo-
lition of individual course grades,
comprehensive examinations, cur-
ricula in science courses for non
science majors, classrooms in dor-

Course Development
"We are well on our way toward
the development of a program of
freshman seminars, core courses
in the physical and social sciences
and the- humanities, and are con-
sidering a variety of techniques
of encouraging i n d e p e n d e n t
study," the report says.
Faculty commitment, however,
may prove more of a problem, the
report indicates. Surveys the com-
mittee has taken indicate that al-
though many teachers are inter-
ested in teaching at the Residen-
tial College, few are willing to do
so full-time.
"Thus we ask," the report con-
tinues, "what can we make out
of a network of split and part-
time appointments? How shall we
define 'load' on the new campus?
How can we get our faculty to
mingle with the students on off-
hours and not retreat to the cen-

Hold Chicago
Rights Protest
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Two hundred par-
ticipants in a school protest pa-
rade were arrested in Grant Park
yesterday after staging a sit-down
in a dispute with police officials.
The protest was an attempt by
civil rights leaders to pressure
Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley
into firing school superintendent,
Benjamin C. Willis. Some civil
rights actionists accusp Willis of
not moving swiftly enough in a
racial integration plan for the
Daley, who first had set Mon-
day for a conference with protest
leaders, shifted the appointment
time to yesterday afternoon. But
he warned marchers that they
must not block the city's heavy
downtown traffic.
Repetition March3
The suddenly abolished march
had been planned by civil rights
leaders as a repetition of a dem-
onstration march held Thursday
which snarled downtown Chicago
traffic and blocked LaSalle St.
outside city hall.
The marches were staged in con-
junction with a proposed two-day
boycott of the city's public school

University's Flint branch this
year. Rep. Charles Grey (D-
Ypsilanti), who proposed the
cutback, said that the move
"was not a serious amendment
in the sense of cutting the
University's budget."
Force Restoration
"It is an attempt to force res-
toration of cutbacks made in ad-
ministrative pay raise bills by the
Senate Appropriations Commit-
tee," he explained.
"I hope that our differences in
this area can be worked out so
that the University's budget can
be raised again to $50.35 million
plus an additional $900,000 for
faculty salaries."
No Interest
Grey emphasized, however, that
he had no interest in restoring
Senate cuts in the controversial
legislator pay-raise bill. Other
House members had bitterly at-
tacked the Senate Appropriations
Committee when it killed this
measure earlier this week
University officials had no com-
ment on the budget cut.
The slash was made as the Ways
and Means Committee read the
higher education bill onto the
House floor. The bill, which orig-
inated in the Senate Appropria-
tions committee, was passed by
the Senate with a total appropria-
tion of $184.3 million and $51.2
million for the University, includ-
ing funds for Flint and additional
faculty salaries.
The Ways and Means Committee
did not reduce the budget of any
of the other nine state schools,
reporting the bill to the floor with
a total appropriation of $183.4
Many observers interpreted the
University cutback as a direct slap
at Senate Appropriations Commit-
tee Chairman Garland Lane (D-
Flint). Lane has been generally
favorable to the University, and
is a staunch supporter of its plans
to admit freshmen at Flint in the
Sources speculated that part of
the purpose of such a large cut is
to make sure that the University
cannot divert other funds to sup-
port the Flint venture-a factor,
they said, which will put a great
deal of pressure on Lane to end
his opposition to the House-passed
administrative pay-raise bill. Lane
had joined Appropriations Com-
mittee Republicans in killing the
Lane could not be reached for
comment last night. However, the
Associated Press indicated that he
has made no apparent moves to
confer with House leaders.
Grey noted that the Ways and
Means Committee cutback would
give the University an appropria-
tion identical with its operating
budget for the 1964-'65 year, add-
ing that the Lane committee's
recommendations for administra-
tive salaries were to keep them at
their present level.

Several OAS
States Resist
Peace Levies
WASHINGTON (M)-Some mem-
bers' resistance to paying special
assessments to support the United
States-proposed inter-American
peacekeeping force threatens to
create a financial crisis in the
Organization of American States.
The problem is similar to that
faced by the United Nations in its
unsuccessful efforts to make sev-
eral countries-notably the Soviet
Union and France-meet special
assessments for UN peacekeeping
efforts in the Congo and the
Middle East.
A special committee headed by
Ambassador Guillermo Sevilla Sa-
casa of Nicaragua met at the OAS
yesterday to discuss the matter
but it announced no decisions af-
ter considerable talk.
Vote Authorization
The Senate voted Tuesday to
authorize the use of 25 millionof
the $55 million available for La-
tin American military assistance
to help support the inter-Ameri-
can force under OAS control.
But Mexico has already warned
it will object to "any OAS resolu-
tion assigning quotas resulting
directly or indirectly from the
establishment of the inter-Ameri-
can force."
Venezuela, Chile and Uruguay
also have notified the OAS they
reserve the right to object.
No Support
These countries did not support
the establishment of the inter-
American force. Mexico objected
to any such force at all since it
regards the Dominican crisis as an
internal matter to be solved by
the Dominicans.
Venezuela failed to get the OAS
to declare that the inter-American
force be evenly divided, numeri-
cally, between U.S. and Latin
American troops.
The force was established May
6 by a vote of 14 to 5 to help to
keep the Dominican factions from
