At the same dead end
A ND SO,.we are back at the same dead end.
President Thieu pronounces the advocacy of a coali-
tion government as unlawful-and invokes his "demo-
cratic" Constitution as a sanction for that verdict.
President Nixon vows that we will not participate in
the "imposition" of a coalition that the people of South
Vietnam have not chosen.
But how can they make that choice if any prospective
candidate guilty of urging it becomes automatically eli-
gible for prison and is barred from seeking public office?
The answer is deadly silence.
TO READ the transscripts of the Thieu and Nixon
interviews is to realize more clearly than ever (as Vice
President Ky indiscreetly remarked yesterday) that the
designation of David K. Bruce as our new envoy to the
Paris talks was a tactical concession to domestic unrest, a
public relations operation rather than a serious new
Nixon asserted that Mr. Bruce would have "great
latitude" in his new role. Yet the President simultaneous-
ly tied his emissary's hands on the issue that remains the
key to peace-the emergence of a coalition in Saigon.
Bruce has lofty credentials as a diplomat and gentle-
man. One wonders why he is permitting himself to serve
as front-man for another exercise in the pacification of
American dissent when his options have been so bluntly
foreclosed in advance.
NIXON EMPHATICALLY denied that there was any
"significant difference" between Washington and
Saigonon the "political future" of the Thieu regime. The
inescapable corollary is that there is some significant
difference between himself and his Secretary of State,
William Rogers. Thus in the Thieu interview, the colloquy
Q. You say that you want to see a negotiated settle-
ment but Washington insists on keeping the door open to
the possibility of a coalition government here (in Saigon)
and you insist on keeping it closed. Is there any room
for agreement between you and Washington?
Thieu: I never heard that from President Nixon but
sometimes some declarations of Secretary Rogers and
some other Senators (sic) create some misunderstanding
but for us our position is clear. We never accept a coali-
tion government imposed by anyone.
Again the code word-to borrow President Nixon's
disparagement of "coalition"-is the word "imposed."
Mr. Thieu proceeded at length to reaffirm his willingness
to accept the results of a "free election" under interna-
tional supervision. But how "free" is an election in which
advocates of a neutralist, coalition government are barred
from running? Back to the transcript:
Q. Sir, the Constitution of this country disallows
many, many people from running. Would you be prepared
to change the Constitution of South Vietnam in order
to have that kind of (free) election?
Thieu: I think right away if the day of election the
Communists win the election they have to change the
Constitution at once.
Q. At the moment the Constitution of -South Vietnam
prevents many people of certain political. coloring from
becoming candidates. Now would you be prepared to have
the Constitution changed?
Q. Now you are preparing for another election next
year. Will people like lawyer Dzu (Thuong Dinh Dzu) who
ran second to you in 1967 and has spent his time in jail
since then be permitted to run-people who say they
want peace and people who call themselves neutralists?
Thieu: I don't think ... I think we have a law of
justice. Anyone whohas been in jail cannot be a candidate
O BEYOND all the double-talk it comes down to the
brutal truth that there is no real-place in South
Vietnam's political structure for those who urge a coali-
tion solution; they are all potential cellmates. Who, then,
is "imposing" what when Nixon lends his prestige to the
approaching new election fraud and covers up for Thieu's
preposterous prescription for change-the "freedom" of
dissidents to revise the Constitution-if they "win" an
election in which they are not allowed to run? How much
longer can the fakery of "self-determination" be mer-
chandized when Thieu so crudly gives the show away?
How much longer can Nixon play straight man in this
wretched comic opera?

NIGHT EDITOR: PHILIP HERTZ
PRESIDENT ROBBEN Fleming
returns to his office in the
administration building t o d a y,
after nearly a month's absence.
Waiting for him, like so many
gremlins, are a number of deci-
sions to be made and questions
to be answered. In more ways
than one, his vacation is over.
Most immediately, perhaps, is
the decision of whether Gay Liber-
ation Front (GLF) will be allowed
use of Union facilities for their
Michigan conference which is
scheduled for Saturday. Fleming
has already rejected the idea of a
Midwest conference, saying it
should be directed toward "those
with a professional interest in
But, since that statement, the
members of GLF have been trans-
formed from an almost apologetic
group of somewhat aimless stu-
dents, to an increasingly assertive
and vocal organization. It seems
likely that the executive officers
will support Fleming's decision at
their meeting this morning.
ANOTHER DECISION which
must be made soon is the appoint-
ment of a vice president for stu-
dent services. Fleming, during a
brief touchdown here July 31, said
he would make a decision by Sept.
1. And, since that time, Student
Government Council (SGC) has
been interviewing prospects so
they can present their recommen-
dation to Fleming within the next'
The appointment is a crucial
one. The person whom Fleming
appoints will ultimately determine
the role and power of the em-
battled student policy board.
The appointment will also spell
out Fleming's views on student
Then there is the question of
why the University is pursuing
Bob Parsons. Parsons, who grad-
uated in May, was convicted iii
civil court of striking engineering
Prof. John Young during the re-
cruiter incident last February.
Even though Parsons served his
sentence and is no longer a stu-
dent at the University, the ad-
ministration is still attempting to
prosecute him on their own.
THEN THERE IS the question
of why the new safety director
was created and why the present
director of the state police, Col.
Fredrick Davids, was appointed to
fill it. On the face of it, the ap-
YOUNG rest home-vacancy for man.

pointment seemed to indicate the
installment of a "supercop" to
crack down on disruptions, thus
indicating a generally tougher line
And, despite Davids' assurances
to the contrary, that initial, im-
pression is still very strong, and
while he may be able at present
to claim some uncertainty about
his exact job, Fleming certainly
knows precisely what he has in
mind. The truth will come out
eventually, and if Davids is indeed
a "supercop," Fleming can only
lose by claiming otherwise now.
RUNNING THROUGHOUT all
these issues is the role of SGC.
In sharp contrast to the previous
administration, SEC's c u r r e n t
leaders began their term last
spring by attempting to, in the
words of president Marty Scott
"reopen the lines of communica-
tion with the Regents and the Ad-
ministration." The Regents re-
sponded with the interim conduct
rules and disciplinary procedures.
Scott called their totally unilateral
action "a slap in the face," and it
has been downhill ever since.
On the matter of selecting an
OSS vice president, SGC has taken
upon itself -(no other group was
prepared to act) to interview po-
tential candidates and make a
recommendation to Fle m in g.
Should Fleming reject their choice
or delay still longer his decision,
another function of SGC will have
become an exercise in futility.
THE ADMINISTRATION and
the Regents utterly fail to compre-
hend what is meant when they are
accused of provoking confronta-
tion. Yet, that is exactly what is
occurring when virtually every ef-
fort by SGC at reapproachment
is met with rebuffs from Fleming
and the executive officers.
Can it be that the administra-
tion actually longs for the days
when SGC members used their po-
sitions mainly as platforms for
promoting confrontations on a
variety of issues? Whether it does
or not may become academic as
frustration increases not only for
SGC, but student leaders in gen-
The real irony of the situation
is that one would expect the ad-
ministration to be pleased that
any group of students are willing
to work within the system and
would work to keep them there,
rather than drive them away. But
that does not seem to be the case,
and if Fleming succeeds in kicking
the students out of his office, he
should not be surprised to find
them in the streets.
