AIR STRIKES CONTINUE:
Buddhists Turn to Nonviolence
Of Soviet Bloc Face
WASHINGTON (P) - NATO's
Communist counterpart is also
suffering from the strains of na-
tionalism which may further re-
duce Soviet authority over her
satellites, a Senate subcommittee
said last night.
The group said trends at work
within the Communist Warsaw
Pact may give the Soviet Union's
Eastern European allies greater
autonomy in political, cultural and
But it stressed the value of the
alliance to the Soviet Union and
said it would be unrealistic to
suppose the Soviets will cease to
play a predominant role in pact
"Today, it is no exaggeration to
say that the Warsaw Pact is one
of the few remaining effective de-
vices available to Moscow for
holding the Soviet bloc together
at a time when the forces of na-
tional self-interest are increasing-
ly coming into play in Eastern
Europe," the subcommittee report
"On the other hand, said the
study, the East European states
"probably regard the pact as sure-
ty the U.S.S.R. will continue to
underwrite their regimes and safe-
guard their borders."
SAIGON (A')-Leaders of the
politically active segment of Viet-
namese Buddhism, writing off a
campaign of violence, turned to
passive resistance yesterday in
their efforts to unseat Premier
Nguyen Cao Ky's military govern-
ment. They had obviously lost the

northern Buddhist center where
family altars now clutter the
streets. Quang declared he would
limit himself to water and juices
until the government resigns.
Saigon's Buddhist Institute, un-
der chairmanship of the moderate
Thich Tam Chau, announced a
policy of noncooperation with the.
government. At the same time it
ruled out threats of further fire
suicides, which stand at nine, and
new street disorders.
Americans battled North Viet-
namese regulars in the central
highlands in the chief military ac-
tion of the day as the Buddhist
hierarchy shifted tactics in the
play to wrest the Saigon reins
from the ruling generals.
Paratroopers of the U.S. 101st
Airborne Division reported they
had slain 292 men of an enemy
battalion on a Red supply trail
260 miles north of Saigon and
were slashing ahead, "killing them
faster than we can count them,"
a U.S. spokesman said. Casualties
among the two or more helicop-
ter-borne American battalions
were reported light.
Calls for Unity
The Buddhist Institute an-
nounced formation of a "Commit-
tee for the Protection of Bud-
dhism." The institute appealed for
the support of "all Buddhists and
all friendly religions."
The effect of such an appeal is
problematical, for moderate Bud-
dhists are among the 10 civilians
added this week to the military
directorate to help guide the coun-
try toward the election of a Con-
stituent Assembly Sept. 11.
The institute's move and Qu-
ang's hunger strike seemed to
show a wavering and emotional
deviation from the past course of
hard-line propaganda, the Da
Nang uprising, and widespread

government seemed firmly in pow-
The ups and downs of Vietna-
mese politics are apt to be felt
again, but for the time being
American diplomats relaxed.
Emotionalism and Division
The government, backed by the
United States, was faced by a di-
vided, feuding Buddhist wing
whose method narrowed down to
symbolic gestures and emotional
appeals. A large portion of Viet
Nam's practicing Buddhists ap-
peared outside the conflict.
Even Hue was not considered a
major headache by the govern-
ment, which calmly examined a
draft proposal to set the Septem-
ber election in motion.
The streets of Hue were blocked
by Buddhist family altars in a
gesture of protest. iVetnamese
troops manning positions there
were not doing anything to remove
the altars. The Buddhist "strug-
gle groups" similarly were mak-
ing no move against the troops.
Government sources announced
that Radio Hue, silent for the
past week, will go back on the air
today, under government control.
Look for Truce
An American military spokes-
man said the Viet Cong are try-
ing to get a truce with a regi-
ment of the South Vietnamese 1st
Division, which has headquarters
The spokesman said Viet Cong
leaflets have been found in the
area of the 3rd Regiment, a unit
known to have wavered in loyal-
ty to the Saigon government.
In Saigon, a spokesman for the
government's 32-man Electoral
Commission said Ky probably will
announce a final draft within a
week of the arrangements for the
Sept. 11 vote.
The commission proposed a 159-
seat Assembly, which would mean
roughly one representative for
each 95,000 of South Viet Nam's
people. Two national minorities
are to have 11 seats. These are
Cambodians living in Viet Nam,
and the Montagnards, mountain
The most controversial of the
commission's proposals was that
the Constituent Assembly trans-
form itself into a governing legis-
lature after it writes a constitu-
tion. Speculation centered on
whether the government would
swallow this, for it could shorten
considerably its life expectancy as
proclaimed by Ky.

Ten Times Harder
Brown told his supporters: "I
want you to know that you have
to work ten times harder than you
have ever worked before."
The conservative-minded Re-
agan, whom Brown called a "far
right" heir to Barry Goldwater,
built a massive Republican margin
in the south, and it was there
that Yorty ran strongest.
Brown said his coming contest
would be tougher than those he
won over former Vice President
Richard M. Nixon and former Sen.
William F. Knowland to capture
his first two terms.
In Washington, national leaders
of both parties declared their
forces would unite to win the
November battle for power in the
nation's most populous state.

Ray C. Bliss said Reagan's major-
ity "can now be blended into a

John M. Bailey called the primary

and an endorsement of President
Johnson's policies and programs.
He said the Democrats would

than that two years ago.
Nixon, who lost to Brown in
1962, forecast a Reagan victory
and said the Democrats "are more
divided than they have been in
a dozen years."
Works for Reagan
Ironically, Brown strategists
had promoted Regan's causein
the Republican campaign, dis-
tributing years-old data on dairy-
man Christopher's troubles with
state milk price authorities.
Reagan, who began his political
climb in Barry Goldwater's presi-
dential campaign, was the soul of
moderation and the spirit of unity
as he faced cheering supporters in
Los Angeles Tuesday night.
"The Republican party is the
polarity around which constitu-
tional principles are founded," he
said. "The cause we represent is
greater than one man."

his government operations sub-
