Draft Scandal Major Sees Unity


Draft Scandal, Major Flooding sees enity
Plague New Viet Nam Regime In Bolivia

U.S., USSR Deadlocked in UN

SAIGON (I)-A draft scandal
showed up yesterday among flood
relief, political and other prob-
lems besetting South Viet Nam.
Police sources said they uncov-
ered a ring, involving officials in
the former government of Maj.
Gen. Nguyen Khanh, that has sold
exemption papers to Vietnamese
youths conscripted for military
service against the Communist
Viet Cong.,
The price for avoidance of du-,
ty in the U.S.-advised armed forc-
es, they said, ranged from the
equivalent of $750 to $1500. That,
would be too high for peasants,
but within the means of wealthy
Press Investigation'
The police reported one man is
under arrest. They said they in-
tend to press the investigation de-
spite a pbssibility of efforts from
high places to sweep it under the
Draft boards speeded up their,
work recently after a -long lull.
Teams of military and civilian po-
lice are stopping youths for
checks of identity and draft reg-

istration cards and sometimes are
inducting them on the spot.
All branches of the armed serv-
ices need more men. While the
United States has built up its
supporting forces to more than
21,000 men, at only half their
authorized strength. One goal is
to bring the regular army up to
215,000 by the year end.
Flood Disaster
The war went on even in flood-
ed central Viet Nam, where U.S.
and Vietnamese relief and rescue
teams struggled through Viet
Conzg sniper fire and foul weath-
er to alleviate the disaster.
A U.S. military spokesman -
cautioning that the figures might
be exaggerated--said floods rush-
ing through mountain valleys in
the last few days are reported to
have drowned 1100 civilians and
driven 150,000 from their homes.
Refugees poured into the main
coastal cities. It was estimated
that 36,000 or more are in Da
Nang, a South China sea port and
military base 380 miles northeast
of Saigon.

In Saigon, dissident student
leaders pressed their demands for
a reorganization of Premier Tran
Van Huong's week-old civilian
government. A dozen surround-
ed him at a state reception in
Gia Long Palace, saying they lik-
ed him but couldn't stand some of
his ministers.
Huong, a former school teach-
er, told the students that all
complaints are under study. But
flood relief has priority for the
time being, he said. The students
clearly were not satisfied. They
have threatened to defy Huong's
ban on demonstrations if their
demands are not answered by Fri-
day afternoon.
The 12 youths were among in-
vited guests at a reception given

LA PAZ, Bolivia (R)-Gen. Rene
Barriento said yesterday most po-
litical parties have agreed to sur-
render their arms to prevent fur-
ther violence in Bolivia.
"This is an important step for-
ward in the understanding we
have achieved with the parties,"
the President of the military jun-
ta said in an interview.
"We are gradually strengthen-
ing a working alliance with the
political forces toward realizing
our aim of national unity."
Civilian groups, including pea-
sants, students and miners be-
longing to different parties, have
had weapons for years. Their
stocks were increased by loot-
ing arsenals during last week's
military revolt that ousted Presi-
dent Victor Paz Estenssoro.

By The Associated Press
President Lyndon B. Johnson
has expressedwillingness to re-
solve the deadlock over UN fi-
nances "in tny number of pos-
sible ways" consistent with the
UN charter. But from all indi-
cations, the basic positions of
the U.S. and Russia in the feud
over payment of UN dues re-
mains unchanged.
The President's chief delegate,
Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson,
gave Johnson's position in a let-
ter to the Nigerian UN ambassa-
dor, Chief O. S. Adebo, made
public yesterday.
The Soviet Union is two years
behind in UN dudes because of re-
fusal to pay assessments amount-
ing to roughly $52 million to
support UN operations in the
Congo and the Middle East.
Charter Penalty
Article 19 of the UN Charter
says any member two years be-
hind cannot vote in the Gen-
ral Assembly. The USSR could
avoid being the full two years
behind by paying only $5,793,331
of their total assessments.
Others two years behind are
the Ukraine, Bylorussia, Czecho-

eral U Thant. Afterward Feder
enko told reporters not to "hav
any illusions" that the Soviet Un
ion would depart from the state
ment of last Saturday reiteratin
its refusal to pay for Congo an
Middle East peacekeeping.
According to Stevenson, th
U.S. is willing to strengthen th
Council's primary role in peace
keeping, without derogating fro
the Assembly's power of assess
ment. It favors assessing peace
would "take more fully into
keeping costs in a way that woul
"take more fully into account" t
views of the chief financial co
Stevenson said that "as far
the United States is concerne
the current financial difficulti
can be settled in anynumber
possible ways consistent with t
He did not elaborate. The United
States has always argued that i
would be "consistent with th
charter" for the Russians to for-
feit their vote if they did not pay.
But it has also said it is flexible
as to the method of payment, be-
cause "the only vitally essential
ingredient in any solution is that
the funds be made available to
the United Nations."
Stevenson's letter was the first
announced response to Nigeria's
letter which was sent Wednes-
day to Johnson, French President
Charles De Gaulle, Soviet Pre-
mier Alexei I. Kosygin and Brit-
ish Prime Minister Harold Wil-
son, asking that their govern-
ments get together on- the issue.

Quyen said Catholics and Bud-
dhists, often at odds in the last
18 months, are prepared to unite
against the government. Huong's
statement that politics and reli-
gion should be separated is open
to question.
Both faiths are dissatisfied be-
cause Huong did not consult re-
ligious leaders in selecting the
ministers, he said.

Parties giving the junta some
form of backing range from
Lechin's Revolutionary Party of
the Nationalist Left to the right-
ist Bolivian Socialist Falange, the
nation's two largest parties.
It remains to be seen whether
the various parties will return all
