Mishandled pacification
Sprogram funds reported

WASHINGTON (A') - Federal
auditors told Congress yester-
day they found loose control
and a lack of reliable account-
ing in U.S. funding and man-
agement of the South Vietnam
pacification program.
The report of the General
Accounting Office, (GAO) an
auditing arm of Congress, con-
cerned a management device
called CORDS, for Civil Oper-
ations for Rural Development
Support, set up in 1967 to con-
solidate administration of U. S.
support for pacifications.
Neither the Pentagon nor
CORDS has developed a report-
ing system providing reliable in-
formation for budgeting funds
needed for the programs or for
measuring the aid already pro-
vided, GAO said.
"CORDS estimated that the
cost of deliveries to regional
and popular forces, a major
element of CORDS activity, to-
talled $1.8 billion" for 1967
through 1971, but "GAO be-
lieves that the actual costs
were approximately $900 million
- a 50 per cent difference," the
auditors added.
"No effective controls were
set over commodities provided

to war victims. GAO said.
For instance, GAO said it
found about 13,000 tons of food
valued at nearly $3 million had
spoiled in warehouses near Sai-
gon, and 55 sewing machines
had been given to ineligible re-
cipients such as Vietnamese
senators and the mayor of Sai-
gon.

MICK ARRESTED:
Suit planned against Stones

BOSTON (P) - A newspaper
publishing company yesterday
announced plans to file a civil
suit against two members of the_
Rolling Stones traveling party
after a. skirmish with a photo-
grapher and police which delayed
a Boston concert for five hours.
The Providence Journal Co.,
publishers of Rhode Island's two
largest newspapers, said t h e
suit would be filed against Roll-
ing Stone Keith Richard a n d
Stanley Moore, a member of the
entourage which is touring North
America.
The suit stems from a disturb-
ance Tuesday night at a Rhode
Island airport which temporarily
landed five members of the
Stones party in a Warwick, RI.,
jail.
The Stones said yesterday they
were innocent of all charges and
pledged to deliver their second
Boston concert last night on
schedule. Another packed house
was expected at Boston Garden.
Two Stones, Mick Jagger and
Richard, and three members of
their traveling entourage have
been ordered to appear in War-
wick District Court in Rhode Is-
land Aug. 23 to answer charg-
es stemming from a brawl with
the photographer, Andy Dicker-
man and Warwick police.
The five were released from
custody in Warwick after Boston
Mayor Kevin White said if the
Stones weren't rolling toward his
city soon he'd have trouble con-
trolling the 15,509 who had come
to hear the musicians,
The crowd waited, until near-

ly 1 a.m., passing rubber f o o v-
balls and generally heeding
White's plea for calm.
In an 11:30 p.m. appearance
before the packed house, White
pledged to keep public transit
running through the night a n d
said he was cutting security sfrc-
es in half.
Police at the Garden were
needed to put down a third con-
secutive night of violence tn the
city's South End.
During the 75-minute perform-
ance, the 29-year-old Jagger,
clad in a purple jumpsuit laced

with rhinestones, told the crowd
the Garden "is better than War-
wick."
"Our thanks to the Mayor of
Boston," Jagger said. "He help-
ed us get out of that jail,"
William Radican, a Warwick
police commander who was in
charge of the police contingent
which arrested the five, s a i d
he would not have agreed to re-
leasing the arrested Stones from
custody Tuesday night if Boston
had not been faced with several
trouble areas, including its South
End problems.
