Red Cross
Help Asked
By Monks
Coast Guard Cutters
Seize Chinese Arms
Bound for Viet Cong
SAIGON ()-Embattled Bud-
dhist leaders, blockaded in a Sai-
gon pagoda compound, appealed
yesterday to the International Red
Cross for help in a health situa-
tion they described as critical.
They claimed one Buddhist had
caught cholera, but the govern-
ment said a hospital examination
showed no such symptoms.
In the northern city of Hue,
extremist monk Thich Tri Quang,
leader of the widespread anti-
government agitation that has
wracked the country for weeks,
was placed under virtual house
arrest.
13th Day on Hunger Strike
A squad of about 20 govern-
ment soldiers guarded his room
in Hue Municipal Hospital where
he was in the 13th day of a hun-
ger strike to protest the govern-
ment of Premier Nguyen Cao Ky
and American support of Ky.
While maintaining its firm pres-
sures on the weakening Buddhist
opposition movement, the govern-
ment announced formally its plans
for national elections in the fall
and made official its intention to
stay in power well into 1967.
It also eased its curfew on Viet-
namese in Saigon, and U.S. mili-
tary authorities followed suit and
relaxed restrictions on U.S. serv-
icemen in the capital.
Anti-American Demonstrations
A tight curfew had been im-
posed when Buddhists began a se-
ries of antigovernment demonstra-
tions that on numerous occasions
erupted into violence on Saigon
streets. In many cases, the dem-
onstrations had a strong anti-
American overtone.
In the war, U.S. Coast Guard
cutters intercepted and seized a
blockade-running trawler that was
about to deliver tons of Chinese-
made arms and ammunition to
Viet Cong guerrillas south of Sai-
gon.
The major ground action involv-
ed units of the 1st Brigade of the
101st Airbone Division, which ran
into a Viet Cong force of un-
known size and became involved
in a brisk firefight that lasted
through the day. The Americans
reported they killed four Viet
Cong while suffering light casual-
ties themselves.
Hit Near Cambodia
B-52 bombers from Guam blast-
ed a suspected Viet Cong area in
Zone C near the Cambodian bor-
der. Officials said a Viet Cong
unit of about 500 men and a head-
quarters detachment were be-
lieved in the target area.
Monks of the besieged Buddhist
Institute, where Saigon's violent
anti - government demonstrations
have originated, said in a cable
to the International Red Cross
in Geneva that one Buddhist had
contracted cholera and others
massed in the compound were "in
hunger."
The suspected cholera victim
was permitted to leave the insti-
tute in an ambulance, and offi-
cials said no symptoms of the
disease were detected when he was
examined at a hospital.
The monks claimed in their
message to Geneva that 1500
adults and 400 refugee children
were jammed into the compound
surrounding Saigon's main Bud-
dhist pagoda.
"Electricity and water have been

cut off," the cable said. "The
health situation is critical. One
Buddhist has caught cholera.
Medicine and food cannot be
brought in. Help, save our souls."
In New York yesterday Secre-
tary-General U Thant renewed his
three-point plan for ending the
Viet Nam conflict and declared
that "these three steps alone can
create conditions conducive to a
peaceful solution of the Viet Nam
problem."
The three points, previously out-
lined by the secretary-general, are:
-A cessation of the U.S. bomb-
ing of North Viet Nam.
-A scaling down of military
operations by both sides.
-A willingness by all sides to
enter, into discussions with all
those actually participating in the
fighting
Thant said he had made no
new proposals on the Viet Nam
conflict recently. He acknowledged
that he had touched on thes ub-
ject briefly in an informal talk
with U.S. Secretary of State Dean
Dusk at President Johnson's UN
reception in Washington last
Tuesday, but described the con-
versation as "casual."

WASHINGTON (M)-The Sen-
ate Ethics Committee, starting
hearings on misconduct charges
against Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, first
ruled out copies of documents tak-
en from his files but later dis-
closed they are being used in
the probe.
At the end of a day-long, clos-
ed hearing, Chairman John Sten-
nis (D-Miss) said his opening
statement about not using as evi-
dence copies of over 4000 docu-
ments removed from the Con-
necticut Democrat's office requir-
ed clarification.
In his original statement he
said the bipartisan committee felt
the copies of the documents were
"sufficiently stigmatized so as to
preclude their use as evidence
here."
Documents Questionable
Stennis told newsmen later that
since the committee regarded the
admissability of these copies as at
least questionable, it considered it
had a duty to secure "all docu-
ments and facts obtainable," in-
dependently,
"This is what we are doing," he
said. He added, "If the original
documents obtained are at vari-
ance, or do not include all docu-
ments taken from Senator Dodd's
office with respect tothe mat-
ters before the committee, the
committee will inquire into such
variance."
Stennis said that after screen-
ing the copies it obtained, the com-
mittee requested Dodd to furnish
it with the originals of all the

Boyd. who 'left Dodd's staff in
May. 1965, said he is disturbed
by the committee's ruling against
the use of the copied documents'
as evidence.
"This will be of the greatest
advantage to Sen. Dodd," Boyd
said as he left the hearing room.
He said he would be "very sur-
prised" if Dodd had turned over
all the documents involved in the
case to the committee set up to
police senatorial ethics.
He would not discuss his testi-
mony before the committee.
Dodd and Klein
Stennis said the committee's
initial hearings would deal with
Dodd's relationship with Julius
Klein, owner of a Chicago public
relations firm and a registered
agent for West German business
interests.
Stennis said "a critical ele-
ment" in this relationship is a
trip Dodd made to West Germany
in April 1964.

"The committee will accordingly
be especially interested in any
evidence which seeks to establish
or refute the allegation that Sen.
Dodd employed the official sanc-
tion of such a trip as a subterfuge
for a scheme to improve the repu-
tation which Julius Klein had in
Germany." said Stennis.
Trip To Investigate
In his libel suit against Person
and Anderson, Dodd said he made
the trip for the Senate Internal
Security subcommittee to investi-
gate murder and kidnaping as in-
struments of Soviet policy.
The columnists had written that
inateDodd made the trip to help
Klein retain his West German
clients after Klein had figured in
a Senate Foreign Relations Coin
mittee investigation of the activi-
ties of foreign agents.
Dodd willbe permitted to attend
all the committee's hearings, to
cross examine the witnesses and
to offer evidence on his own
behalf, Stennis said.

by Sen. Edward V. Long (D-Mo)

backed similar legislation in the
1950s.
This legislation, Moss told the
House, "will not only correct in-
equities which have developed
over the past 20 years but also will
establish a governmental program
to prepare for the wave of the
future."
'Political Problems'
And he noted that "government
information problems are political
problems" but not partisan prob-
lems.
"Let me emphasize today," Moss
continued, "that the government
information problem did not start
with President Lyndon Johnson.
I hope, with his cooperation fol-
lowing our action here today, that
they will be diminished."

Merry Christmas
In 1895, in Copenhagen at the old Bing and Gron-
dahl procelain factory, the idea of the now famous
Christmas plate was born. Since then, a new plate with
a new motif is manufactured every year. Every year,
the molds are destroyed and the plates become col-
lectors items,
The theme for the 1966 plate shows the fishing fleet
returning home for Christmas with a spruce decorating
the mast-head in the old Danish Christmas tradition.
The new 1966 Bing and Grondahl plates are now in
