Nixon promised $3 billion to Vietnam

WASHINGTON () - Richard
Nixon secretly committed the
United States four years ago to
$3.25 billion in post-war aid for
Vietnam but he now believes
fulfillment of that pledge would
be unjustified and immoral, ac-
cording to documents released
yesterday.
In a 1973 Nixon message to
North Vietnamese authorities,
released simultaneously yester-
day by the State Department
and by Rep. Lester Wolff (D-
N.Y.), the former president
promised the U.S. post-war aid
"without any political condi-
tions."
WOLFF ALSO released a let-
ter Nixon wrote him last Satur-
day in which Nixon said he
could think of "no action which
would be less justified or more
immoral than to provide any aid
whatever to the Hanoi govern-
ment in light of 'their flagrant
violations of the Paris peace
accords."

Wolff, chairman of the House
subcommitte on Asian affairs,
and several House colleagues
said the two documents suggest
that former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger and his prede-
cessor, William Rogers, lied to
Congress about the existence of
the agreement.
Wolff said the two documents
make clear that the Congress
and the American people were
"consistently misled as to the
existence of any secret negotia-
tions, much less as to the actual
content of the agreements."
RELEASE OF the original
Nixon message to North Viet-
namese Prime Minister Pham
Van Dong settles one of the lin-
gering mysteries about t h e
terms of th January 1973 Paris
peace agreement.
A State Department spokes-
man said it was a coincidence
that the letter was released on
the same day that David Frost
was airing the Vietnam aspect

AlIong time* ago in 8 aelexv far. fara

of his series of interviews with
the former president.
The substance of the letter
was disclosed by Vietnam more
than a year ago. In explaining
its decision to release the let-
ter now, the State Department
said it is "no longer deemed
sensitive" and Nixon -raised no
objections.
THE NIXON pledge, made a
few days after the peace agree.
ment was signed, has been cited
by Vietnam as a major justifi.
cation for its claim to U.S. post-
war aid.
President Carter has said a
"normal" aid relationship with
Vietnam may some day be ps-
sible but he has ruled out any
U.S. 'contribution based on the
notions that the United States
bears the blame for what hap-
pened in Vietnam.
A U.S. aid commitment was
contained in the peace agree.
ment but Vietnam insisted on a
presidential message outlining
a target figure and a mechan-
ism for dispensing the aid.
CONSISTENT with a Nixon
proposal included in the mes-
sage, a U.S.-North Vietnamese
Joint Economic Commission was
set up to discuss post-war aid
but talks we're suspended after
a few months with no agreement
reached.
Kissinger said two weeks agn
that the Nixon message made
it clear that any U.S. contribu-
tion would first have to be ap-
proved by the Congress. Cur-
rent legislation .prohibits aid to
any of the communist contwss
of Indochina.
Kissinger said it would ie
"absolutely absurd" for Viet-
nam to claim a right to post-var
aid in light of its conquest of
South Vietnam two years ago
When December arrived, the
Texas Rangers had two fine
shortstops - Toby Harrah and
Bert Campaneris, the latter
having played out his option
with Oakland.
