Buddhist Rally Sparks
Saigon it Demand




End to Huong Regime

--Associated Press
BUDDHISTS SURGED THROUGH groups of seated Buddhist
monk demonstrators in Saigon yesterday as tear gas exploded
about them during protests against the government of Premier
Tran Van Huong. Paratroopers smashed through the mob with
billy clubs and tear gas.
Soviets Attack U.S.
Sone Fight
UNITED NATIONS ({P-The Soviet Union accused the United
States yesterday of trying to paralyze the activities of the United
Nations by creating an artificial crisis over peacekeeping assessments
owed by the Russians and a dozen other nationis.
In a statement to the press the Soviet Union delegation declared,
that the U.S. position was the only stumbling block preventing the
General Assembly from returning to normal voting procedures.
The statement said the Soviet Union would make a substantial
voluntary contribution to ease the UN's financial plight-but that
the amrount was Moscow's own business, and would be disclosed

SAIGON MA)-Buddhist rioters
attacked the United States Infor-
mation service library and bat-
tled security forces throughout
Saigon yesterday in an effort to
unseat South Viet Nam Premier
Tran Van Huong. Skirmishes per-
sisted into the night..
The disorders, touched off by a
rally of about 450 yellow-robed
monks and nuns in front of the
U.S. Embassy, had openly anti-
American overtones.
Some banners curiously parallel,
ed the Viet Cong propaganda line.
Communist Slogan
One, though looking innocent,
was identical to a slogan of the
Communist guerrillas: "We de-
sire democracy, freedom and peace
for the Vietnamese people."
Monks and nuns carried these
and other banners in a 10-block
march through Saigon to the U.S.
Embassy in defiance of govern-
ment orders against street dem-
Vietnamese paratroopers guard-
ing the embassy permitted a five-
man delegation to deliver to the
door a petition for U.S. Ambassa-
dor Maxwell D. Taylor. They de-
manded an end to American sup-
port for Huong's regime, which
the Buddhists charge is oppressive.
Attack Police
Trouble boiled up two blocks
away. A wave of yelling Buddhist
youths attacked and stoned cor-
dons of combat police. Dispersed
with tear gas and clubs, the youths
reassembled and marched on the
U.S. Information Service library
-four blocks from the embassy.
They smashed library doors and
Use Tear Gas'
Paratroopers finally donned gas
masks and broke the demonstra-
tion up with tear gas and clubs.
Several dozen demonstrators were
Fifty-five Buddhists and 20
monks were arrested in the ini-
tial clashes. Police charged some
of the monks were draft dodgers.
Not Anti-American
A U.S. Embassy spokesman said
he did not regard the vandalism
at the USIS library as an anti-
American act, adding:
"In any case it does not reflect
the feeling of the majority of the
Vietnamese people."
Even so, the number of rioters
did not seem to be great. Perhaps
fewer than 2000 persons made up
the hard core.
The demonstration apparently
was organized by the Young Bud-
dhist Monks and Nuns Associa-
tion for the Defense of Buddhism,
headed by a monk named Thich
Thanh Nhan. None of the rank-
ing leaders of the Vietnamese
Buddhist movement was present.

Associated Press Staff Writer
WASHINGTON-As of now, the
House would pass some version of
President Lyndon B. Johnson's
egislation for health care of the
aged, an Associated Press poll
The Senate passed the bill last
'ear and Democrats have increas-
d their strength there. And the
party widened its House majority
ven more, so it appears that a
[ecade of controversy will end in
victory for the proponents of
health benefits administered un-
er the social security system and
inanced by payroll taxes.
The Ways and Means Commit-
'e will decide the exact provi-
ions of the bill sent to the House.
Poll Legislators
Associated Press reporters reach-
d 396 of the 435 House members
with questions about health-care
Of these, 175 said unequivocally
[hey are for the administration
egislation, and 25 more said they
re inclined to vote for it. Per-
haps more significantly, only 21
ecorded themselves as opposed to,
ny further government action in
his field.
Reactions of the remainder var-
ed, but the biggest bloc--115--
aid they want enactment of some
lan for health benefits for the
ged, other than the Johnson plan.
Some Undecided
Twenty - nine representatives

ix said they are uncommitted,

Moreover, some of the 115 who

These general principles are ex-
pected to survive the committee's
rewriting of the legislation dur-
ing the next few weeks.
The major alternative plans
so far brought forward avoid pay-
roll-tax financing and set some
means qualifications.
Alternative Plans
Those most often mentioned by
representatives polled are a bill in-
troduced by Rep. Frank T. Bow
(R-Ohio), a plan suggested by the
American Medical Association and
expansion of the existing legisla-
tion for state-federal health serv-
Ives for low - income persons,
known as the Kerr-Mills Act.
Moreover, Republican members
of the Ways and Means Commit-
tee have promised to bring up an
alternative of their own, still be-
ing worked on.
Both the Bow bill and the AMA
proposal contemplate the subsidiz-
ing of private health insurance for
elderly persons whose incomes fall
below specified levels.
Tax Credits
Bow would subsidize premiums
up to $150 annually by granting
tax credits, or, for persons who
do not pay that much tax, by
grants from the fegeral Treasury.
The AMA would establish a flex-
ible, state- administered system
using state and federal funds. The
insurance under either plan would
cover more than just hospital bills.
The Republican plan, not yet
disclosed, is believed likely also
to contemplate the use of private

Alex Quaison-Sackey of Ghana,

he will call for election of com-

The Soviet Union is about $60

the amount of the Soviet volun-

awaited to an appeal for volun-
