Before leaving Bangkok, Mondale
told a news conference the United
States is interested in "peace, stability
and national independence" in
Southease Asia and that "we have no
desires beyond that."
HE WAS responding to a charge by
Vietnam on Thursday that his trip to
the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia,
Australia and New Zealand signaled a
new U.S. military "plot" in the region.
When he arrived in Jakarta yester-
day for the third stop on his Southeast
Asia tour, Mondale was greeted by Vice
President Adam Malik and the entire
Indonesian cabinet which stood on a red
velvet carpet running from Air Force
Two some 330 feet to a VIP lounge.
Mondale said his visit was "a clear
reflection of the high priority that
President Carter and the United States
attach to our ties with Indonesia."
"The United States and Indonesia
share a common interest in economic
development to maintain stability in
the region," he remarked.
GOVERNMENT sources said Mon-
dale was expected to inform President
Suharto in talks Saturday of a $160
million food assistance grant and U.S.
agreement to supply Indonesia with a
small number of A-4 jet fighters.
In his talks with Thai Prime Minister
Kriangsak Chomanan, Mondale said

Citing McKinley's plans to install
glass windows to box in outside
balconies, Valkuchak renounced the
findings of McKinley's engineers,
saying, "They (the engineers) are
regular customers of McKinley's, they
are just telling them (McKinley's) what
they want to hear."
Taylor, however, disagrees with the
tenants. "They (the two engineering
firms hired) may not agree on some
minor points, but basically I think we
know how to fix the problem."
McKinley noted that many of the
strikers, such as Valkuchak, were not
planning on returning anyway, and
were going to the Township Board "just

Trustee Wes Prater proposed that a

speak at the next board meeting, "to

tificates should not be revoked."
Township attorney John Collins has
notified McKinley's of the Board's
views. Taylor said the firm would be
