To Rally New Support]

SAIGON (W)-The collapse of
the Buddhist rebellion in Da Nang
+ spurred the government of Pre-
mier Nguyen Cao Ky into quick
action last night to rally new
popular support for his military
rule. But dissidence persisted in
Hue, the Buddhist center, and
turmoil with anti-American over-
tones threatened Saigon.
In the aftermath of Ky's vic-
tory in bringing about the sur-
render of the main force of Budd-
hist dissidents in Da Nang, there
were these developments:

-Ky ordered a massive air lift
of food and supplies to Da Nang
to ease shortages among the city's
160,000 people after a week of
bloodshed-a move aimed at win-
ning popular favor. He lifted a
24-hour curfew and tension eased.
The city was slowly returning to
Civilian-Military Congress
-The military junta drew up
the agenda for Tuesday's meeting
of a civilian-military congress
called in an attempt to pacify'
segments demanding a return to

civilian rule.
-Buddhist dissidents entrench-
ed in Hue, the old imperial capital
50 miles north of Da Nang, con-
tinued to assail Ky as a dictator,
and demanded his ouster. U.S.
officials predicted a government
move to starve them out. Hue,
which has a population of about
104,000 is considered solidly hos-
tile to Ky.
-Simmering anti-Ky sentiment
in Saigon took an anti-American
tone after a South Vietnamese
soldier was shot dead as a U.S.

Viets Vow To Speed Elections

Viet Nam government has accept-
ed a speedup of elections for a
constitution-making assembly this
fall, but has not bowed to Budd-
hist demands, a special represen-
tative of Premier Nguyen Cao Ky
said yesterday.
Deputy Foreign Minister Bui
Diem, a special assistant of the
premier, said anti-Communist
feelings still are strong in Viet
"Up to now there have been
no defections to the Viet Cong,
but there are quarrels among
ourselves about who should be
in charge of the anti-Communist
struggle," he said in an interview.
Efforts for Legality
"I am not afraid of the pre-
diction of some that Viet Nam
will fall apart. But we are making'
a turbulent effort to achieve legal
foundations in the midst of war,
inflation and social injustice."
He indicated a belief that Ky's
success in quelling the rebellion
at Da Nang has enhanced the
chances of maintaining the gov-
ernment's election plan.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
met with House leaders in the
Capitol and brought them up to
date on Viet Nam political de-
"Our hope is this matter will
be resolved before very long,"
Rusk told newsmen.
Viet Cong Plan Attack
Sen. Stuart Symington (D-Mo)
told the Senate that he has
learned "on good authority" that
Viet Cong troops are assembling
4 in Cambodia for a major attack
on South Viet Nam.
Rusk said that with the Ky
government apparently in control,
"our hope is that they will be
able to work out a peaceful agree-
ment" and restore unity for the
war against the Viet Cong. He
A said the United States has been in
"normal communication" with the
opposing elements during the re-
bellion and tried to bring them
Diem and Ambassador Vu Van
Thai are emphasizing in talks
with U.S. officials that Premier

Ky had taken a necessary step to
re-establish the authority of the
central government in the 1st
Corp area of Da Nang and Hue.
After reaching agreement with
the Buddhists in March on holding
elections, they say, it became
necessary to re-establish the gov-
ernment's authority.
Now that Ky has restored his
control over Da Nang, the second
largest city, he has improved his
bargaining position in Hue. It is
believed that from this improved
position Ky will now try to come
to terms with the rebel forces in

The rebel officers in the 1st
Corps area number about 15 to 25.
The troops under their command
are not considered completely pro-
Buddhist because many of the
soldiers have been drawn from
other parts of the country and
include Roman Catholics as well
as other sects, Diem said.
The officers in the 1st Corps
area went too far and found them-
selves in the forefront of the
Buddhist protest movement, he
said, and now because they are
military men their defiance of
authority becomes a difficult

military convoy passed by. Crowds
streamed into the streets shouting:
"Burn American cars! Kill Ameri-
cans!" The U.S. Command im-
posed an 8:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. cur-
few for military personnel..
Heaviest Raids
-Although action continued
light in the war against the Com-
munists, allied forces reported
killing 227 Viet Cong in scattered
fighting in South Viet Nam. U.S.
planes staged their heaviest raids
against North Vietnamese com-
munications and military targets
for the first time in a week as
monsoon weather cleared.
Da Nang was reported 90 per
cent under the control of Ky's
forces, which he dispatched to
the coastal city May 15 for a
showdown with the Buddhist-
backed "struggle forces" seeking
his ouster. Rebels held out in
small pockets but were not re-
garded as a threat.
The commander of Ky's task
force, Brig. Gen. Du Quoc Dong,
reported that Da Nang's mayor,
Nguyen Van Man, had been taken
into custody and flown to Saigon.
Gen. Dong said the mayor, whom
Ky once threatened to execute as
a Communist, tried to flee from
Tinh Hoi Pagoda where the main
rebel force gave up.
The surrender followed a gov-
ernment offer: "If you surrender,
your lives will be saved."
At this stage, the government
appeared victorious. But the turn
of political events was by no
means decided and the country
was likely to go through many
critical periods before a transition
from military to civilian rule.
Events began in Saigon yester-
day with another wave of rioting
outside the Buddhist Institute-a
drab compound with a barn-like
pagoda in the center of a muddy
American Vehicles Attacked
The shot that killed a Viet-
namese soldier incited crowds
from adjacent streets to attack
American vehicles. The rioters
screamed that an American ser-
viceman had killed the Vietnam-
ese. Oother reports said a Viet-
namese guard in the convoy shot
the soldier. But the source of the
shot was not officially determined.
Within minutes, the street was
full of surging youths and flames,
shot out from two American ve-
hicles, overturned by the mob. The
occupants fled.
It took two hours before steel-
helmeted Vietnamese marines and
paratroopers could clear the
streets, hurling tear gas grenades,
throwing up a smoke screen and
firing in the air.
By nightfall, five rows of barbed
wire were built around the in-
stitute-the center of antigovern-
ment and anti-American agitation.
U.S. officials said there was no
evidence that an American was
involved in the shooting incident.

British Plan
By Erhard
'Wilson's Proposal
To Give NATO Allies
Bridge-Building ActionE
LONDON )--Prime MinisterI
Harold Wilson won West German
Chancellor Ludwig Erhard's broad
support yesterday for a five-point
British plan to revamp the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization after1
France's military withdrawal. ,
The British and West German
chiefs of government, meeting for
two-day talks, also agreed the,
role of Fench troops in Germany
must dovetail with that of allied
forces there.
Erhard at the same time ac-
cepted a British-American idea
for widening NATO's purely de-
fensive functions to give the al-
liance a bridge-building function
to the Communist-ruled East. The
British and Americans are look-
ing ahead to possible Soviet-
Western cooperation in the 1980s
and beyond in the face of a nu-
clear-armed Red China.
Want To Resolve Crisis
Britain's scheme for a stream-
lined NATO aims at resolving the
crisis caused by President Charles
de Gaulle's withdrawal of French
forces from the allied military
system. The British already have
been assured of the backing of the
Americans and most other allies.
This means their proposals are
likely to be endorsed in principle,
if not in detail, when NATO
foreign ministers, minus France,
meet in Brussels June 6.
The Wilson government, mean-
while, slated a big effort to per-
suade Erhard to give up West
Germany's demands for a nuclear
weapon role - and to be content
instead with a share in nuclear
planning within NATO. This
comes up for discussion Tuesday.
Wilson's bid to confine Ger-
many to a policy-making instead
of an ownership role in nuclear
weaponry would imply abandon-
ment of his project for an Atlan-
tic nuclear force owned and
manned by member nations. It
also would, he hopes, make it
easier to secure Russian agree-
ment for a world treaty banning
the spread of nuclear weapons.
Five Principles
The five British principles for
tackling NATO's crisis:
1) NATO's integrated or com-
bined military system must sur-
vive France's walkout.
2) The French must not, by
any allied action, be driven fur-
ther out of the alliance.
3) Equally, the French must be
denied any privileges by the allies
that would give them unearned
4) The crisis must be used to
strengthen NATO by modernizing
and streamlining its military and
political organs.
5) Simultaneously, France's 14
partners must use current op-
portunities to root out other weak-
nesses. These include ineffective
nuclear policy making, unsatisfac-
tory means of political consulta-
tion, unfair burden sharing-
especially on balance of payments
Erhard backed these ideas, al-
though on some "technical mat-
ters" he was said to have reserved
Germany's position pending fur-
ther discussion. These relate to
the relocating of such NATO or-
gans as the political headquarters
which now is in Paris and which
De Gaulle has invited to stay. The

consensus seems to be that
NATO's political directorate should
move with the military directorate
to Brussels.

Attempt To Influence Voters
Senate critics of President
Johnson's Viet Nam policy have
described their public attacks as
intended to influence him by in-
fluencing the voters. That is the
explanation offered by Sen. J.
W. Fulbright (D-Ark).
The Oregon balloting will test
their success, at least among Dem-
ocratic voters there. For the two
principal contenders for the Dem-
ocratic nomination for the Senate
are sharply split over Viet Nam.
Rep. Robert B. Duncan, 45, sup-
ports the President's policies while
Howard Morgan, 52, a former fed-
eral power commissioner, is criti-
cal of them.
Winner Faces Hatfield
The winner is expected to go up
against Gov. Mark O. Hatfield in
the Nov. 8 general election. Hat-
field has only nominal opposition
in the Republican Senate primary.
In Florida, Gov. Haydon Burns
has raised the racial issue in his
contest with Miami Mayor Rob-
ert King high for the Democratic
nomination for governor. He
charged there is a "paid Negro
bloc vote" and called for Florida
voters to "stop the bloc vote can-
didate as they did in Alabama."
Oklahoma Democrats choose be-
tween former Gov. Raymond Gary
and Preston Moore, Oklahoma City
attorney and former American Le-
gion national commander, for their
party's nominee for governor.
