Official Information
Kept Classified
SAIGON (AM)-The United States
is going to triple the length of
service of some of its Army men
here, an informed source reported
About three-fourths of the es-
timated 4,000 U.S. servicemen here
are assigned to a temporary six-
months duty tour, but the inform-
ant said this is being extended to
a permanent 18-month tour for
some key personnel.
The extension, it was reported,
applies to such men as pilots of
the three army helicopter com-
panies now stationed from end to
end of South Viet Nam.
Information Classified
Official information on the ex-
tension was classified--secret or
confidential-presumably to avoid
calling attention to the U.S. mili-
tary buildup that has been going
on since December to keep this
Southeast Asian country from
falling to Viet Cong Communist
guerrillas and infiltrators from
North Viet Nam.
A British note delivered to the
Soviet embassy in London yester-
day charged North Vietnamese
authorities were pursuing a policy
of "seeking to overthrow the es-
tablished government of South
Viet Nam by force."
The British note rejected "the
Soviet contention that inited
States military assistance to South
Viet Nam is aimed at turning
South Viet Nam into a strategic
bridgehead in Southeast Asia."
Northern Direction
Rebellion in South Viet Nam
was "fomented, organized, and in
part supplied and wholly directed
from the North," the note added,
and it called on the Kremlin to
restrain the North Vietnamese
and bring home to them the possi-
ble serious consequences of their
'The British note was a reply to
a Soviet complaint of Jan. 10
blaming the United States for
turning South Viet Nam into a
military stronghold. Britain and
the Soviet Union, as co-chairmen
of the 1954 Geneva conference
that split Viet Nam, have special
responsibilities for preserving
peace in territory formerly known
as Indochina.
Under the 1954 Geneva settle-
ment the number of foreign mili-
tary personnel here was limited to
685 men., The U.S. buildup was
started after it became plain a
similar restriction in North Viet
Nam had been violated for years.

Hope Victory
To Minimize
Death Toll
McNamara To Meet
With Top Officers
States officials expressed opti-
mism yesterday that the Commu-
nists will be defeated inSouth
Viet Nam with" a minimum of
American combat and loss of life.
This view was given to news-
men coincident with the an-
nouncement that Secretary of De-
fense Robert S. McNamara will fly
to Hawaii this weekend to con-
fer again on the Viet Nam situa-
tion with top American officers
and diplomats from the Red-
pressed Southeast Asian country.
It will be McNamara's third such
trip in the past two months, indi-
cating the great importance Wash-
ington attaches to saving South
Viet Nam from what President
John F. Kennedy terms a sub-
terranean war waged by the Reds.
U.S. aid is running about a
third of a billion dollars a year.
The official optimism is based
on an assessment that South Viet-
namese President Ngo Dinh Diem
is undertaking sufficient reforms
to gain popular support in his
land. It is felt also that the South
Vietnamese troops are fast learn-
ing counter-guerrilla techniques
which they will be able to carry
out themselves without direct ac-
tion by Americans.
The present U.S. military con-
tingent in South Viet Nam, report-
ed to number some 4,000, is de-
scribed as assigned for technical
and training purposes only.
French Await
Of Cease-Fire
ALGIERS VP) - Thousands of
French troops yesterday began
moving toward Algeria's strife-
torn cities as army sources said a
cease-fire may be announced with-
in days.
Tension mounted in Algiers,
where the right-wing Secret Army
Organization repeatedly called on
Europeans to remain calm and
wait orders.
French headquarters for Algeria
intends to mass most of the half
million men army around the ci-
ties, to block expected violence by
European extremists who oppose
Algerian independence and control
any demonstrations by Moslems.
Army sources said most garri-
sons in Algeria's interior will be
used to permit maximum concen-
tration of troops around Algiers,
Oran, Bone and other explosive
urban centers.
The troop movement is expect-
ed to be completed by Monday,
Army sources said.
The troops will be kept on the
outskirts of the cities in special-
ly prepared quarters. Their entry
into the cities is expected to pre-
cede by a day an announcement
of a cease-fire in the bitter, sev-
en-year Algerian war.
Government sources said they
have been informed an agreement
between France and the Moslem
nationalist rebels has been vir-
tually completed.
A meeting of the national coun-
cil of the Algerian revolution,
which acts as parliament for the
nationalist rebels, is expected to
ratify the argeement, perhaps as
early as this weekend.

Republicans yesterday assem-
bled a package of bills to restore
$48 million of expired temporary
taxes by May 1.
Switching from a move toward
a flat rate income tax as a per-
manent solution, the Republicans
are working for immediate new
revenue sources to avoid a major
tax in an election year.
Success for the GOP would spell
death for Gov. John B. Swainson's
personal and corporate income
tax plan which, at three per cent,
is the key point in a general fis-
cal overhaul.
Swainson's proposal includes tax
relief for business and industry
and ends sales tax on food and
The Republican plan, sponsored
in the House by Rep. Gilbert E.
Bursley (R-Ann Arbor), calls for
reenactment of the 1-mill increase
in the business activities tax to

The other taxes are the four per
ceht liquor excise, which would
yield $5 million; an increase in
the cigarette tax from five to six
cents a package, to yield $10 mil-
lion; doubling the beer tax from
$1.25 to $2.50 a barrel, for $7 mil-
lion; and a telephone, telegraph

Air Tactics
BERLIN (AP)-Soviet MIG's fail-
ed to show up yesterday for ad-
vertised exercises in the Ham-
burg-Berlin air corridor and an
informed source said the Russians
indicated they would drop their
10-day-old harassment tactics.
Bad weather may have tempor-
arily grounded the Red fighters at
their East German bases. But
Western airliners and military
planes droned in and out as usual
through gale winds and driving
"There have been no reports of
any Soviet aircraft sighted," a
Western spokesman said. His an-
nouncement came after the ex-
piration of a three-hour period-
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.-which
the Russians had claimed for ex-
clusive use of the Hamburg-Berlin
lane at levels up to 7,500 feet.
May Discontinue
A message from the Soviet offi-
cer in the four-power Berlin Air
Safety Center gave the impres-
sion that the Russians are calling
off the whole thing, an informed
source said.
On the other hand, a Soviet
embassy spokesman In East Ber-
lin indicated the Russians stood
on their claim to be able to make
block bookings of air space in each
of the three 20-mile wide corridors
whenever they wish.
"We will continue to request the
use of the corridors In the way
we have been doing as long as we
feel it is necessary," he said.
The United States, Britain and
Francenprotested to Moscow
Thursday against the Soviet ef-
forts toymonopolize slices of the
corridors and they were reported
ready to send in fighter patrols if
the MIG's persisted in buzzing
Western planes.
Maintain Schedules
A British Royal 4ir Force Bev-
erley transport and at least one
American military aircraft made
.the Hamburg-Berlin run in the
period claimed yesterday by the
Russians, a Western spokesman
said. Civilian airliners maintained
normal schedules.
The Communists could turn the
pressure on the corridors on and
off at will. They have been giving
only a few hours notice in the Air
Safety Center of their wish to keep
certain air space for themselves.
The rules are that each flight

must be handled on an individual

The only part of the previous
tax package, which died June 30,.
not included in the bills is a $2
million tax on cigars and tobacco.
If the package became effec-
tive May 1, it would yield an esti-

Although this would raise in-
come to $473 million from $455
million, there would still be a def-
icit because of school aid and de-
ficiency payments, which will
raise the current budget of $462
million to about $480 million.

Associated Press UN Correspondent
latest rebuff of Cuban Prime Min-
ister Fidel Castro by the United
Nations demonstrates the sweep-
ing change which has taken place
in Cuba's position here since last
The one-sided defeat in the po-
litical committee Thursday was
much more than a rejection of
Castro's charges that a U.S. in-
vasion was imminent. It showed
how the rest of the world reacted
to the Cuban leader's open em-
brace of Communism.
At the time of the abortive in-
vasion of Cuba last April, Castro
found strong support among most
Asian and African countries as
well as some Latin American
neighbors. Thursday all the Latin
American countries-except Cuba
-voted right down the line with
the United States.
Communist Dominated
The whole 10-day debate was
dominated by the Communist bloc.
One by one, the Communist coun-
tries denounced the United States
as an imperialist giant bent on ex-
ploiting all Latin America.

gui tried without success to get
some of the neutralist Asian and
African countries to sponsor a
resolution calling for a peaceful
solution of U.S.-Cuban differ-

felt that Cuba was too closely
tied to the Soviet bloc and that
Castro's complaint was primarily
a cold war maneuver, as U.S. Am-
bassador Adlai E. Stevenson de-
scribed it.
He accused Cuba and the Soviet
bloc of gross misuse of the United

from the inter-American system.

The only resolution put before
the committee was sponsored by

SEC Begins
Market Probe
With Questions
ernment kicked off its broad study
of the New York Stock Exchange
yesterday by asking for the busi-
ness secrets of the big board stock
The specialists, who handle the
daily auctions in stock assigned
to them, were asked also to fur-
nish detailed data on trading in
more than 100 selected securities.
Complex questionnaires were
distributed by the Securities and
Exchange Commission, which is
looking into the affairs of the New
York Stock Exchange as part of
a year-long study of the entire se-
curities business.
The 16-page inquiry forms were
twice as long and much more de-
tailed than similar questionnaires
sent last summer to all members
of the American Stock Exchange,
which is undergoing a major re-
form as a result of the SEC study.
In New York, the New York
Stock Exchange president, Keith
Funston, commented that the ex-
change's members and member or-
ganizations "will naturally coop-
erate to the fullest extent in this
and all other phases of the com-
mission's study."

Would Resist
However, McClellan said he
would resist any move to discharge
his committee Monday from con-
sideration of a resolution disap-
proving the plan.
The actual debate will come on
such a resolution.
The alternative would be for the
committee to meet Monday morn-
ing and report out the resolution.
Not Sure of Meeting
But McClellan said he did not
know whether such a meeting
would be scheduled. He said he
would have to check with other
"I see no valid reason and from
what I know no urgency exists
for immediate consideration of
this plan by the Senate," McClel-

that would warrant the unprece-
dented act of discharging the com-
mittee when it is diligently pur-
suing its duty in properly pro-
ceeding with the plan."
