Cotal aid to Viet Nam is ap-
aching $3 billion. The current
e is running about $500 million
[he cost in lives has been grow-
fnd the longer the United States

i the greater risk it runs in loss

country were limited in number.
The United States kept close to
the 685 advisers permitted. But as
guerilla activity increased in late
1961 and the situation in Laos
deteriorated, the United States
augmented its forces.
By February 1962 United States
forces had grown to 4,000 and by
the end of the year stood at an
estimated 12,000. This was not
publicly mentioned until early this
year. The figure now is around

rebuked by American Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge when she
criticized American officers in South Viet Nam as being little
better than soldiers of fortune.
In 1954 and before, South Viet
Nam, then part of- French Indo-
china, was the responsibility of
France. But with French defeat,
United States aid began.
In 1955 the United States spent
$129 million in South Viet Nam,
all of it economic aid.
It wasn't until the next year
that the military _buildupbegan.
That year saw $167.3 million spent
for arms, the highest total through

And while the military figure
for 1963 isn't available, the U.S.
has obligated expenditures of
$208.1 million in economic aid for
this year. Obligations are moneys
