Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1964, Yuma, Arizona Nottboofc 'Get Out -or Go By JONES OS8ORN "Get out or go north." These arc two of the choices facing Ameri ca in Vie N am, i seems. "Ge out" mean! that wi should admi the futility o trying tc fight a land war in thi jungles o S putheas Asia and ge our people out of there. Try to maintain some stability in that area with our naval forces. "Go north" means we ough' to attack North Viet Nam, 01 at least to attack the supply lines and depots of the commu- nist forces that are attacking South Viet Nam. Life magazine this week wil probe the Viet Nam dilemma. Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, our ambassador to Viet Nam, is quoted extensively. First, he tries to explain our general objective there. "That policy is simply the peace and stability of South- east Asia and its retention as a free area of the world. As specifically applied to South Viet Nam, the policy reflects our resolve thai South Viet Nam shall have the privilege of self-determination of de- ciding what kind of country it wants to be, what kind of gov- ernment it wants to have." In other words, we hoped to create a free nation that can stand on its own feet. Ambassador Taylor was frank to admit our two biggest problems there: 1) The great difficulty in get- ting an effective national gov- ernment established, 2) Inability to halt the con- tinued reinforcement of the communist forces. He might have added a third -problem: American impatience to solve all problems today. But he did say this: "The U. S. lias a vital stake in these operations. A great battle has been joined. The out- come is not in sight. It's too early to say how or when it will end or who will win it. But, certain, now is not the time to lake counsel of our fears. And, above all. it is not the lime to sell our side short." Sfone U.S. VIENNA, Austria (AP) _ About 400 African and Commu- nist Chinese students stoned the U.S. Legation in Sofia, Bulgar- ia, today and staged a demon- stration in front of the Belgian Embassy protesting the U.

A big recruiting job to get vol- unteers for the Job Corps will be launched next week. Most of the camps will be for boys, but a few will be set up for girls. For Cities Another million will go to a dozen cities and six rural ar- eas for community-run pro- grams aimed at a variety of targets, including teaching In- dian children to speak English, training unemployed parents in job skills, and providing social services for impoverished aiv eas. Five cities with well-devel- oped plans for spending the money, will get the. largest amounts: Detroit, J2.8 million; Los Angeles, million; Wash- ington, million; Pittsburgh, million, and Atlanta, mil- lion. Other projects for which funds liave been approved include set- ting up neighborhood youth corps patterned on the Job Corps camps but for youths who will live at home, arid helping colleges provide jobs for needy students so they can remain in school.

Speaking before the Maricopa County Bar Association, God- dard said this appears to be the solution to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legislatures must be reorganized in most states. Goddard said he would go to Washington in several weeks to encourage congressmen to work for a delay in reapportionment of legislatures. He said, how- ever, that the chances for such a delay are slim.
