Kamen attracted national at-

The film showed the House Un-

Teach Thai
The "common core" program
will consist of the teaching of the
Thai language to the volunteers,
for instruction.
The "common core" program, to
be required of all the Thai volun-
teers, will itself consist of four
separate phases.
The first will be instruction in
the Thai language. Secondly the
volunteers will be made aware of
American culture and institutions
from a more objective viewpoint
so as to be able to explain what
the United States is like to the
native Thai.
Physical Education
Thirdly, all the volunteers will
be subjected to an intensive physi-
cal education program designed to
develop in them the stamina they
will need to stand up to any de-
mands that might be made on
Finally they will be instructed
in personal health and hygiene so
they will know how to avoid illness
or how to care for themselves if
they do become sick.
For three years, the University
has been operating in conjunction
with the International Cooperation
Administration, centers in Thai-

On Berlin
NASHVILLE (')-Vice-President
Lyndon B. Johnson said last night
Soviet leaders will "blunder into
an irreparable catastrophe" if
they misjudge the United States'
willingness to defend Berlin.
Johnson said in a speech pre-
pared for the annual Southern
Governors Conference "we are not
paying any blackmail . . . we are
not deserting our obligations to
West Berlin . .."
The Vice - President praised

speech earlier in the day before

will and the weapons to resist
Communist aggression.
No Mistake
Johnson said he hopes the Rus-
sians make no mistake about this
"We challenge no one," he said,
"but we never surrender under
threats. The path of reason, of di-
plomacy, of negotiation, of hon-
orable settlement is open. We want
to take it.
"We seek peace but we shun
appeasement because we know it

in world affairs. It is a develop-

future and defeat the ambitions
of dictators," the Vice-President
"Today the United Nations can
place troops in the field, under
its own authority, even when all

ALGIERS (P)-A mob of about
400 youths held police at bay for
more than three hours in the cen-

traffic, stoning police and military
trucks and tearing up sidewalks.
It was a battle of maneuver and
the mood o the participants
varied from jocular to serious.
Several times riot police and
troops charged the demonstrators
and sent them scooting up side
streets. But each time the mob
reformed to taunt the police. Mas-

The demonstration came at the

or visitor from abroad." the Presi-

h o w :rength here at home and the
