From AP and UPI
George Bush virtually conceded the
Republican presidential nomination to
Ronald Reagan yesterday by canceling
weekend appearances in New Jersey
and closing his operations in California.
"We have in effect closed it down -
we don't have the bucks," said Bush
campaign manager James Baker,
referring to a campaign in the June 3
winner-take-all California primary
against the state's former two-term
THE CALIFORNIA primary alone,
with 168 national nominating delegates
at stake, would give Reagan, the for-
mer governor of that state, more than
enough votes to win.
Bush himself said earlier he would
probably not campaign in Ohio at all
and would head to Houston this
weekend to confer .with his aides in-
stead of keeping his schedule in New
Jersey. California, Ohio, and New Jer-
sey, all of which vote June 3, represen-
ted the only semblance of hope for Bush
of overtaking Reagan.
"We've been talking to party leaders
and he's going to make a decision over
the weekend," Baker said from Bush's
Washington headquarters.
THE DECISION will be announced in
Houston Monday, he said.
Not contesting California "doesn't
rule out going ahead with campaigning
for wins in Ohio and New Jersey
primaries the same day, which we
think we can do," Baker said.
Bush, for his part, said he still wanted
to discuss with aides whether enough
money could be raised to continue the
race "full out, which is the only way I
know how to campaign."
While those statements obviously fell
short of a formal withdrawal, it was
clear that the candidate's
organizational and scheduling
decisions left him with little other cour-

Vietnam, too, is having its share of
problems, Cadwallader said. "I was
very astonished at how austere the
lifestyle of the North *Vietnamese
was ... The methods of farming are
very primitive, and many things are
still being done by hand."
SHE ADDED, however, that the
Vietnamese are making some progress
in rebuilding the country. "Parts of the
south were a real revelation. When I
was in Saigon in 1974, there were
prostitutes and drug addicts
everywhere. Today it's much more
quiet and peaceful."
Cadwallader said she feels the United
States has played a negative role in ob-
taining aid for the area. Currently, the
United States, along with several other
western nations, maintains a trade em-
bargo against Vietnam and Kam-
puchea and a food embargo against
Vietnam. In addition, she said, neither
country can obtain loans from the In-
ternational Monetary Fund.

According to Cadwallader, these ac-
tions are "part of a punitive foreign
policy of the United States. Since our
leaders think that Vietnam 'invaded'
Kampuchea, they should be punished."
SHE ADDED that American media
have contributed greatly to distortion of
events in Southeast Asia by the
American public. "There is much the
media got wrong about Vietnam," she
said. "For example, we've been told
that it was North Vietnam that invaded
South Vietnam, when actually it was a
whole country trying to liberate itself
from coloinial rule." She explained that
the Vietnamese nation has been
fighting domination by the British, the
French, the Japanese, and the
Americans for generations.
"Even now, Vietnam does not want to
be in the 'Russian camp'," Cad-
wallader said. "The people want their
independence more than anything else.
We should give them aid and let them
into the world of nations."
In Kampuchea, Samrin is still trying

to pull things together, she said. "He
told me that Kampuchea has an
agreement with Vietnam and Laos that
states each will become a sovereign
nation... He thinks it will hold."
Cadwallader suggested the first thing
the United States should do to aid
Southeast Asia is to officially recognize
Vietnam. "We were ready to do so in
'1978," she said, "but when we played
the 'China card' and normalized Sino-
American relations that year, we
bowed to China's , wishes and didn't
recognize Vietnam."
Kampuchea, she said, can be aided
by the United States also. "We pledged
$30 million to Kampuchean relief, but
it's tied up in the budget," Cadwallader
