Oct. 7, 1970: PRESIDENT NIXON

asked for a Cease Fire, but

did not mention an Election.

Proof that the War
Can Be Stopped
In a letter to the Editor of The Ann Arbor News on
July 2nd, stated the War in Viet Nam COULD BE STOP-
PED in 48 hours and offered a plan.
On July 28th, another letter appeared saying Presi-
dent Thieu would offer a similar plan; then on July 31,
1970, President Thieu said Saigon (AP) wire: "In a radio
and television address, he repeated past proposals for
elections under international supervision, with the Viet
Cong having a role, and a policy of national reconcilia-
tion."
This is all the North and the Viet Cong have been
fighting for. So, the War can now be over if you want it
to be!
NO. 1. PERSONALLY, ARE YOU, IN FAVOR OF END-
ING THE VIETNAM WAR?
If you are anxious to stop the killing on both sides, will
you do just this much to try? Would you spend $1.00 (one
dollar) to help this plan to make known the facts and a
solution?
90c of your dollar will be spent in advertising or taxes
to get other people to cooperate, you will be paying only
10c for this plan. We, all included! You and I CAN end
the War if you want to. That is considering you do act
TODAY by signing and paying one dollar to help!!
NO. 2. FIRST, WE MUST ADMIT THAT WE WERE
WRONG!
If the following is true-the following quotation is quot-
ed from a United States Government folder No. P-413-
1269:
"This decision is the Forerunner and the reason for our
original, and the cause of our interference and involve-
ment. Here, is the start of our involvement and how it
started:
Quote from above U.S. Folder:
.. . and I include in this injunction a plea that the United
States NEVER gave its approval to the early nationwide
election called for by the Geneva Agreement."
This became the United States policy by every one of our
Presidents. THIS DECISION HAS COST US 40,000 of
our best young men killed and 200,000 wounded.
NO. 3. THAT ELECTION IS WHAT THE NORTH AND
THE VIET CONG HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR EVER
SINCE. To stop the War, we must arrange for the election
that the South has been PREVENTING but now has
agreed to allow a election to unite their country. Here, is
how it can be done: Now, that they agree to it AND
THAT WE NOW ALSO AGREE TO A NATION WIDE
ELECTION. Here is what our representative said to the
North at the Paris peace talks:
Our representative Mr. Lodge. Quote . . . "If it is a Na-
tional election you want, tell us now it can be done."
IT CAN BE DONE
Let us use the following plan as a means of carrying it
out:

THIS
AD
COST
$24360

QUOTE (AP) WIRE SERVICE JULY 31, 1970:
"In a radio and television address he repeated past
proposals, for elections under international supervisions,
with the Viet Cong having a role, and a policy of national
reconciliation." From a speech by the President of South
Viet Nam, the North has asked for it, the South HAVE
agreed to it, when we admit we were wrong in preventing
it, all we have to do now is to offer a plan and assist in
carrying it out! ARE YOU GOING TO HELP BRING THIS
INFORMATION TO ALL AMERICA?
THE PLAN
NO. 5. ALL WE HAVE TO DO NOW IS REVERSE OUR
POLICY. And our effort from resisting and preventing
the nation-wide election, to suggesting a way and assist-
ing in carrying it out!
Here is the plan we suggest unless you know of a better
one:
Use all of our 2 hundred thousand men we have in South
Asia to assist in arranging and carrying out an absolute-
ly fair election in all of North and South Viet Nam and
let everybody vote free from intimidation by anyone and
release or allow all political prisoners to vote!! It would
be necessary to dress all of our men in white to prove
friendship and as a symbol of peace! Fourteen United
States Senators have written President Nixon asking him
to seek a Cease fire now!! It has been stated that the
Lady that represents the Viet Cong in Paris said that the
Viet Cong WILL agree that there will be no retailiatiori
by them.
NO.6. A DATE MUST BE SET FOR THE ELECTION:
Let us set the date for November first, 1970. 39 United
States Senators have agreed that the War SHOULD BE
STOPPED; they voted to cut-off the paying for it. 14
United States Senators have asked President Nixon to
ask for a cease fire!!
North Viet Nam and the Viet Coig have asked for a
nation-wide election to unite their country and have
fought for it, just like we did here in our Civil War in
1860-1865 to keep our country united. Our representa-
tive, Mr. Lodge said "Tell us now it can be done." Quoted
above in this ad is President of South Viet Nam Thieu's
plea and request for an election (of National reconcilia-
tion). All President Nixon needs and all we need NOW
IS YOUR PERMISSION AND COOPERATION. PLEASE
SIGN AND PERMIT THIS.
