Saigon Conflict

(Continued from Page 7)
directorate consisting of four re-
presentatives from the sect "Unit-
ed Front" and Diem. This would
have placed control of the gov-
ernment squarely in the hands of
the sects.
D i e m refused to acquiesce,
whereupon the sects presented an
ultimatum giving him five days to
comply with their demands, warn-
ing that they would pass to a
"phase of action" at the end of
that time. Diem repeated his of-
fers of government positions and
troop integration but to no avail,
and on March 29, the fighting
broke out.
SHE BINH Xuyen actually fired
on the Premier's residence and
were joined by Soai's Hoa Hao
troops in fire fights in the south-
western section of Saigon. The
Cao Dai, however, withdrew from
the sect coalition just before the
clash started, and remained in-
decisively neutral for several days
to see what would happen. They
then integrated into Vietnamese
National Army after the latter
had made a surprisingly good
showing against the Binh Xuyen
and Hoa Hao.
The French interceeded on be-
half of the Binh Xuyen after it
became apparent that they were
no match for the National Army
and called a truce. It lasted a
month.
In the meantime, Diem rallied
Cao Dai and other support behind
him so that when the Binh Xuyen
and Hoa Hao struck again in
early May, the Premier was able
to retaliate swiftly and effectively.
Despite covert French support,
the Binh Xuyen and Hoa Hao
were soundly defeated by the Viet-
namese National Army. Retreating
into Ba Cut's marsh to'regroup,
they were relentlessly pursued and
finally captured, annihilated or
run out of the country by mid-
summer.

BY THE MIDDLE OF 1956, the
Vietnamese government was on
firmer ground than it had ever
been. The Binh Xuyen and Hoa
Hao had been wiped out, Bay Vien
and Soai having been chased into
neighboring Cambodia where they
took political asylum on condition
of good behavior. Ba Cut was cap-
tured, tried for treason, and exe-
cuted.
Of the Cao Dal, Tac retired to
Tay Ninh and General Phoung
was taken into the National Army.
Cao Dal troops were either inte-
grated into the army or demobiliz-
ed and given land to farm.
Trinh Minh The was killed in
combat in leading his troops
alongside the Nationalist Army in
the May battle. He was buried with
full military and state honors.
Within a year, Bao Dai, voted
into exile by the Vietnamese peo-
ple, remained in parasitic luxury
on the French Riviera. Premier
Diem was elected first President
of the Republic of Vietnam under
a govrnmental revision. The last
vesitiges of French political influ-
ence disappeared when the Viet-
namese negotiated for and re-
ceived the withdrawal of the
French Expeditionary Forces.
VIETNAM is still a partitioned
nation. Ho Chi Minh's Viet
Minh rules north >f the 17th par-
allel, backed by their neighbors
further to the north, Communist
China. In the south, the Republic
of Vietnam, her internal dissen-
sion fading into the past, has the
encouragement and support of the
United States in her fight for sur-
vival as a national entity.
A once many-sided and fluid
situation has crystallized into a
two-part affair with the issues
clearly outlined, the lines distinct-
ly drawn. A unified Republic of
Vietnam faces the north with hope
that the day of complete unity
under a free government is in the
not-too-distant future.

Teeth
(Continued from Page 5)
a cup of tea. A glass straw made
things easier. About eleven, I de-
cided- to stake my life on the
penicillin tablets also prescribed,
and one-sidedly consumed a hot
fudge sundae and potato chips.
My jaw stopped moving about
halfway through them, completely
exhausted. The next few days
were easier, but my jaws were
locked almost entirely shut. Jt be-
came embarrassing: I kept push-
ing food off the fork with my
teeth.
I went back the next Monday to
have the stitches removed. A dif-
ferent dentist pried open my
mouth, then checked the record.
"I see by the record that three
stitches were put in, but there're
only two here. I guess they made
a mistake." He pulled out the two.
THR EE DAYS LATER, I felt
something with my tongue,
then looked in the mirror. A black
thread was hanging out of the
side of a now-smooth gum, with
a neatly tied bow on the end.
I waited about three weeks and
finally had it removed over spring
vacation by my next-door neigh-
bor, a Rockefeller Center dentist.
I had the other two teeth out
a couple weeks ago. The total
operation took 35 minutes.
The cost for four extractions,
including drugs, was $9.50.
It should be recognized, I sup-
pose, that the Department of Den-
tal Surgery did a perfectly compe-
tent job as far as I am concerned.
Even the perfect job is accom-
panied and followed by some dis-
comfort. They can pull the rest
of my wisdom teeth any time.
One other aftereffect: During
the height of the swelling, the side
of my jaw turned slightly bluish.
In true Michigan tradition, it be-
gan to turn yellow, and then, in-
explicably, a yellow streak pro-
gressed from the jaw downward to
a point just above the collar hone.
I wasn't fazed: I took to wear-
ing a blue sweater.
