Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 27, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Economic Outlook Still Dim for Embattled Indo-Chinese Nations Television Listings By Dennis D. Gray SAIGON (AP) There is very little light at the end of In- do-China's economic tunnel. Dayight, economically, depends almost totally on more U.S. dol- lars for more years to come. With years of warfare behind them and continued hostilities across most of Indo-China, the governments of South Vietnam Cambodia and Laos are bj themselves nearly impotent in the battle to pull out of their economic quagmire. "There is absolutely nothing you can do to get back to eco- nomic health in IndcfChina ex- cept increasing one economic expert in Saigon said.

Consequently, the growing fig- ures in red must be covered b> checks from the outside, most ol them from the U.S. Washington foots a very long and varied bit which includes everything from the manufacture of noodles in Students Back Ousted Jesuit At Georgetown WASHINGTON (AP) The Rev. Edmund Ryan, a Jesuit priest who played a walk-on part in is out of a job and the Georgetown university student government is protesting his ouster. Father Ryan was dismissed as executive vice-president of the (university by Georgetown's president, the Rev. R. J. Henle, also a Jesuit. A spokesman in Father Ry- an's office said Tuesday that the dismissal was not related to his being in the popular film. The spokesman said a lawyer had been retained and an ap- peal was planned. President Henle said on Mon- day he took the action over the weekend "with deepest regret only after it was evident the differences between us were ir- reconcilable." Jack Leslie, president Of the student government at George- town, said, "All indications are that the academic and Jesuit community are solidly behind Ryan." Leslie said Henle lold the sludent leaders that Ryan had been upset after not being ap- pointed, as he had been pre- viously, to serve as acting pres- ident during Henle's planned summer absence. Instead, Henle named a five- member panel, with Father Ryan as a member, to admin- ister university affairs. Leslie also said Henle told the students that Ryan did not al- ways show maturity in handling some of his duties and he lacked expertise in matters con- cerning the university's medi- cal and law centers. Laos, the provision of 750 tons of tobacco to Cambodia and the six million artillery shells the South Vietnamese army said it fired during 1973, the first year of "peace" in that country. The total U.S. economic-mili- tary aid package to the thret countries this fiscal year will be about billion, according to of- ficial U.S. statistics. The aid will be roughly divided at a ratio of three for guns to one for butter, with South Vietnam get- ting the lion's share of both. In fiscal year 1975 which begins 'this July the price tag for U.S. support to Indo-China is expected to rise to about ?3.5 billion. "If it were not for U.S. aid, Cambodia would revert to a barter one Western observer said in Phnom Penh. "But the Phnom Penh govern- ment would probably fall before that happened." Battle Inflation The consumers of Indo-China must do battle with such infla- tionary rises over the last year as 66 percent in South Vietnam, 46 percent in Laos and as high as 300 percent in Cambodia, ac- cording to U.S. estimates. The long wars have prevented real development in the manu- facturing sector, increases in agricultural output and the splintering of what is grown and made between the various war- ring sides. Fighting in Indo- China has to dale spawned an estimated 11 million refugees, creating vast strains on the eco- nomic systems. And all-out war in Cambodia, a bloody peace in Vietnam and a fledgling, uncertain coalition government in Laos have fright- ;ned away most foreign private investors. Thus with meager production at 'home, imports in all three countries have for years soared above exports. Anticipated irade deficits for calendar year 1974 include million in South Vietnam, more than million in Cambodia and million in Laos. These deficits will in all prob- ability continue to be largely offset by U.S. import financing 17 Kids, Wedding Prompts Suicide MEXICO CITY (UPI) For nearly two decades, Domingo Gasca Araujo, 52, a shoemaker, had been promising Virginia Rosas Gonzalez, 42, that (hey would get married. As time went by, Gasca fath- ered 17 children by her. Last week the shoemaker, under increasing pressure by his older children as well as Virginia, finally agreed to be married. Then, as she made final pre- parations for the wedding and a post-wedding fiesta, Gasca went quietly into the bathroom and killed himself with a. bullet in the head. programs and basically U.S.- funded monetary stabilization programs. Exporters Again But were peace to come, there is little doubt that in time both Cambodia and South Viet- nam could again become signifi- cant exporters of rice, timber, fish and other produce. Large untapped oil reserves are be- lieved to lie off the coast of South Vietnam. And all three countries have considerable tourist appeal, which has been dampened by years of bombs and bullels. It is also quite certain that given a politically stable Indo- China, foreign investors would take a positive look at the area. Even with daily fighting in some corner of South Vietnam, a few foreign countries have been in- creasing their aid and invest- ment, notably Japan and France. Despite the huge and growing trade deficits, export flows from Soulh Vietnam have shown marked increases over the last three years. In Cambodia, prob- ably the most helpless of the three economically, revenue from rubber production is ex- pected to double this year over 1973 to about million, ac- cording to U.S. sources. Impelled by soaring world trices and (he energy crisis and reportedly very concerned about possible U.S. aid cuts, the Saigon government has taken some steps to tighten its eco- nomic belt. The 1974 budget has jeen pared of some excesses, ;ough energy conservation de- crees have been handed1 down and the piaster has been deval- ued more than (a dozen times since Jan. Doubled Taxes According to official statistics, :he Saigon government has dou- bled its tax collections over the )ast year. Imports of luxury terns, once at the million level, are down to he- men million and mil- ion. The U.S. ambassador to Soulh Vietnam, Graham A. Martin, las recommended an mil- ion economic aid package to the country for fiscal year 1975! "and a little less the following year." This fiscal year economic aid minus the Food for Peace Program and in-country proj- ects will add up to about million. "I believe that with such a push for a surge effect, if you will, it will be possible for eco- nomic aid the third year to be drastically reduced or perhaps be eliminated the ambassador said Some U.S. officials believ that even million would no be enough to reverse the down ward economic pull. It would b a piecemeal approach which ii the long run would do nothin; but prolong the economic mis ery and possibly only postpon economic disaster, they say. The Saigon government ha said economic aid would be re quired at least until 1980 but a a reduced- rate after the firs few years. President Thieu's top adviser Hoang Due Nha, recently said: Substantial Amount need for the first two o articularly among so-called riscal.conservatives. Goldwater and a handful of other conservatives have The Neighbors gy made known their disdain for the record spending requests. But from the vast majority of GOP members, there has been only silence. "The battle of the budget is the American Conserva- tive Union (ACU) said last month in mourning the big budget rise. "The budget won. President Nixon has uncondi- tionally surrendered." The Watergate -beleagured Nixon, the ACU concluded, "has taken a dive in the fight for fiscal responsibility." Incensed that so few congres- sional conservatives have spoken out against the Nixon budget, ACU compiled state- ments from anyone they could find in congress who had criti- cized the increased spending requests. In many cases the political organization had to solicit opinions. Only 35 mem- bers responded. Less Attention "I cannot live with the budget my President has presented to the Goldwater said in a senate speech that received much less attention than his 1957 statement. "If I felt Ike's budget was a 'dime store New Deal' you can imagine what I think of the budget recently sent to Capitol Hill It is a political mis- take with the gravest kind of overtones for the welfare of my country." Senator James Buckley (CR-N.Y.) who recently called for Nixon to resign, said the President had abandoned his avowed intention to elimin- ate wasteful federal programs, and was continuing to "throw dollars at problems." Senator Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) called the Nixon fiscal requests "CWSETHP POOR so-me CWRK WON'T eft our, Advertisement LOSE FAT OR MONEY BACK Lose 5.10.25 or more pounds of excess (at without missinfi a meal with Iliis Plan lhat can help you slim down..

(AP) An elderly man who says he hasn't been in a bank in 44 years was robbed of more than cash at his home. Marshal Strayhan, 82, who re- pairs guns and watches in his home, told police he received a telephone call at night from a man who wanted to leave a gun with him. He said he told the man to come in when the shop re- opened. Strayhan said the man came with two other men. They overpowered him, bound his bands and feet and took the money from a safe. Strayhan said he withdrew his money from a bank to fix his louse in 1930 and "just never ivent back." Why take our word that want ads work? Try one yourself. l 398-8234. 7-News, WNttitr.

Like other protest demon str'ations the Indian seizures of Alcatraz and the'later' con frontation at Wounded Knee the -public's attention was often misfocused on potential violence rather than the issue the pro testers sought to dramatize. When the Trail of Bro Treaties caravan took over the BIA one -of the central points il tried to make was that federal srograms, despite increases in imding, were not having the impact they should have. GAO Report Now, in a report by the Gen- eral Accounting Office, the Indi- ans' point has been made in the detailed and precise language o government investigators and accountants. The GAO study took only, one aspect of the services the feder- al government, by historical precedent and treaty, is respon- sible for providing American In- dians: The Indian Health Ser- vice an agency of the department of health, education and welfare. In health, as in economics, the [AO said that Indians are 'at he bottom of the ladder'." "Indians experience higher ates of illness and have shorter ife expectancies than the over- all U.S. the GAO aid. "It added that "Indian health is still significantly worse ban that of the general popula- ion." Area of Progress One area in which the IHS ap- to have made significant trides in combatting Indian lealth problems is that of infant deaths. In 1955, when HEW took there .eaths for were every 62.5 infant live irths, compared with a 26.4 fig- re for the rest of the popula- ion. 'The 1971 figure was 23.8 ler compared with a pro- 'isional 19.2 per for (he est of the population. But while illnesses that are primarily medical are being somewhat reduced, Si e a 11 h problems that mix the medi- cal and social alcoholism and venereal disease are increasing drastically. The Indian suicide rate, for xample, has climbed 99 per- ent since 1955 and the in- idence of cirrhosis of the liver esulting in death has increased 85 percent since 1955. HEW has been pointing out for ome time that venereal disease s a national health problem of pidemic proportions. Gonor- hea, for example, is second only o the common cold as the most widespread contagious disease in the nation. Yet, according to the GAO, "The reported rate of venereal disease among Indians is many times higher than the rate reported for the total U.S. population. Program Lacking "Despite these facts, IHS has not developed a comprehensive program for controlling the spread of venereal disease in the Indian population." Alcoholism, a white man's disease introduced to the Indian in ihe 17th Century, is probably the major Indian health prob- lem. The GAO said IHS es- timates "linked as much as 61 percent of the demand- on the health care system .at the six service units (studied by GACT directly and indirectly to alco- hol.' The IHS said that alcoholism also works to adversely affeci "the economic functioning ol the whole of Indian society.- "Most accidents, homicides; assaults and suicide attempts are associated with drinking, the GAO said. Improvement Costly The IHS concurred with most of the GAO's findings. But i pointed out, as did the angry In- dians who seized the BIA in 1972, "that some implementing actions would be costly." At a time when the adminis- :ration is seeking to cut back domestic social funding and the congress is focusing on the un- :olding of the impeachment drama, the Indian is likely to !ade even further into the back of the governmental conscious- 21-Year-Old Plans Atlantic Voyage WICKFORD, R.I.
