his program to strengthen the
Western alliance, which he re-

margin of victory in Sunday's
The anti-Communist president
of this-Southeast Asian republic
was re-elected to a five-year term
as expected. His opposition con-
sisted of two political unkowns.
The Communists called off their
hit-and-run attacks without ex-
planation on election day and the
turnout was unexpectedly heavy.
The government claimed 90 per
cent of the 7.2 million voters cast
Late yesterday the government
said the rebels "have launched
massive attacks in some remote
areas, mostly in central Viet Namn,
in an effort to prevent collecting
of ballot boxes."
Officials added, however, that
the situation was not believed
critical in any area and was ex-
pected to be cleared up by night-
A spokesman said fighting in
some remote areas of these pro-
vinces began after polls closed and
continued yesterday. Reports were
delayed reaching Saigon.

very slight affect on total returns,'

reelection by about 80 per cent"
of the votes cast.
Ngo ran strongest in Cqmmu-
nist heartland to the south, and
his lowest margin was around Sai-

campaigned hardest.

Passes Two
Stronger Measure
May Fail in Assembly
United Nation's special political
committee approved yesterday an
African demand for a world eco-
nomic and diplomatic- boycott of
the Union of South Africa because
of its white supremacy policies.
But the margin on the harshly
worded resolution containing the
demand-47 to 29 with 18 ab-
stentions-was not large enough
to assure ratification by the 99-
nation General Assembly, where a
two-thirds majority is required.
Milder Resolution
The committee approved also by
a vote of 93-1 with no abstentions'
a milder Asian resolution which
would leave up to individual coun-
tries what collective or separate
action they wished to take. Only
Portugal voted against it.
Both resolutions were sharp in
condemnation of South Africa's
policy of apartheid, and raised
anew speculation whether South
Africa might withdraw from the

New Colleg
Chooses Site
Grand Valley State College offi-
cials met Friday and chose a 740.5
acre site for the new school.
The site, near Allendale in Ot-
tawa County, is bounded by the
Grand River.
The nine man board in control
of the college agreed to the pur-
chase of the site for a price of not
more than $300,000. The money
for the site will come from the
gifts collected during a half-year
long fund-raising campaign.
The Allendale site is 31 miles
from Muskegon and 15 miles from
Grand Rapids, the two population
centers of the college's eight-
county area.
