SAIGON (R) - President
Nguyen Van Thieu told South
Vietnamese beginning the Tet
lunar new year yesterday that
more bloodshed and hard times
are ahead. The political opposi-
tion repeated calls for his resig-
nation.
In an address to mark Viet-
nam's Year of the Cat, Thieu
again ruled out a coalition gov-
ernment with the Provisional
Revolutionary .G o v e r n m e n t
(PRG) and pledged to fight un-
til rebel forces are defeated.
MORE THAN 20 opposition
deputies and senators staging a
hunger strike in front of the
National Assembly building
lighted torches and burned
photos of the president. They
chanted, "Grab Thieu's head
and pull him down," "Nguyen
Van Thieu must resign," and
"Down with the heroin seller
Nguyen Van Thieu."
Charges that Thieu has been
involved in narcotics distribu-
tion have been made several
times in the past. He has de-
nied them.
A letter from the opposition
accused Thieu of taking advan-
tage of Tet by going on nation-
al radio "to renew his lies and'
his promises for political sta-
bility, building up democracy
and maintaining territorial in-!
tegrity."
IN HIS address, Thieu said:
"Two years have elapsed
since the signing of the Paris
cease-fire agreement. The North
Vietnamese Communists have
rebuilt in South Vietnam aI
stronger invasion force.
"They are crazily pushing
ahead a general offensive on!
our territory. We must under-
stand that the Communists will
never strictly implement the
Paris agreement unless theirI

armed invasion at present is
defeated."
HE CALLED on the people to!
increase production and sacri-
fice so as to give sufficient
manpower and materials to
soldiers.
"If the rear is fully stabilized
then the soldiers on the front
line do not worry and will fight
to destroy the enemy," Thieu
said.
HE SAID those in the rear
cannot allow Communists "to
integrate among our nationalist

ranks to poison and excite the
people and to campaign for po-
litical solutions that would lead
to a surrender to the Commu-
nists."
Thieu labels much of his po-
litical opposition as Commu-
nists or,their henchmen. The 181
newsmen arrested last week
were accused of being Commu-
nist agents. The five newspap-
ers closed were among nine
that had tried to print charges
of corruption and malfeasance4
against Thieu.
