Kingsport News (Newspaper) - November 16, 1967, Kingsport, Tennessee Thais Let Americans Worry BANGKOK CDN The United States appears to be embarked In Thailand on one of those ambiguous adventures which have damaged the cause of foreign aid at home and abroad The ambiguity flows from Washington Rutherford deputy director of aid told a House Committee last spring that Thai program 192 million dollars in military and economic assistance over the past two years is defensible only in terms of our joint alliance commitment with land A few days later William Bundy Secretary of Stale for this region bluntly told the same committee with respect to Thailand there is no connection between our access to Thai bases and our aid ONE FINDS here that the aid Is principally directed against pockets of guerrillas operating in three areas particularly in the highly developed northeast along the Mekong River Some 439 American civilians and American military plus 500 hired Thais are deployed to wage a struggle about which the Americans are plainly more excited than the Even businessmen in the Mekong Valley are described as relaxed about the Communist A telling exchange occurred recently between the Thai Minister for Development Nai Pole Sarasin and Howard Parsons director of the aid mission here Irked at Parson's pressures to give more attention to the guerrillas Sarasin suddenly exclaimed Howard I know lhat you've got problems in the northeast but I've got lots of problems right here in This is precisely he attitude which American mission combats want the Thais to accept the northeast as their problem but they stumble repeatedly against the fact that the most imaginative officials are gripped by the lightening pace change and opportunity in Bangkok ST LOUIS CDN Dr William H Masters of fha book Human Sexual has completed another book to be published next year entitled Human Inadequacies It will contain a new con- cept in the treatment of sexual besetting men and The field he ong

Whale Finds Home LOS ANGELES CDN Baby a killer whale is getting along just fine hi his new surroundings thanks to Clyde dolphin The whale was caught accidentally by some Canadian fishermen a few weeks ago They freed him from heir nets and turned him over to curator John who flew him to his new home in a specially plane He wouldn't cat anything for JO days just what we were able to force-feed says Prescott He was upset by the plane ride the confinement and the change in food Then we Introduced Clyde and two other dolphins into his tank The two look to each other right away even lets Clyde

this massive effort in behalf of six million peasants Parsons and his aides must stress their fears that the guerrillas will drag Thailand into the nightmare which besots Vietnam This analogy embellished by American journalists infuriates the Thai officials They are delighted have Americans bolster the economy of the north country visitors are building a network of roads spending 17 million dollars a year to improve the national police and launching all kinds of education programs Their initiatives will cause Thailand to become within a few years one of the world's great producers of corn The American taste for guerrilla chasing has served Thailand well since 1950 when Marshal perceived lhat nothing opens the aid spigots so quickly as a Communist Dean Husk speaking in 1951 as an Assistant Secretary of Slate said Thailand have enough resources to take care of herself But in the years sirce then flie American aid o this well-endowed nation has run over 1 billion dollars MORE THAN half of the aid has gone directly to the military and thus reinforced the general's political control This is now the focal issue with which the Communists undertake to rally the countryside But the Thais angrily deny that the Vietnam analogy fits them They have a king who is forceful and popular they are religiously unified in Buddhism and their farmers are landowners They remain amateurs at many modern pursuits but they are lively and grasping and anxious to learn They are not beaten down like the Vietnamese by war and occupation Their foreign currency reserves are bulging and have no of being dominated by the Americans If this scale of aid is the price which they want Washington to pay for the air bases here lie deal should have been negotiated in those terms The present arrangement leaves a confusing link between Bangkok and Washington that is certain to cause rouble in the end for everyone particularly for the foreign aid program ALL NEW 180 SQUARE INCH
