Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 7, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Diplomats must be very agile To escape rocks bombs By TOM LAMBERT New York IdTribune News Service WASHINGTON The Quiet the Ugly Ameri can as some see bet ter be an Agile American these days especially if he is sta tioned in some Communist na tion or in one of a score or more in Asia Africa the Middle East or Latin America Increasingly over the last several years people in those countries have been attacking American embassies consulates Information Agency libraries or other USoccupied buildings to express displeasure over US policies or programs If the Quiet American isnt agile he might for example be skulled by a rockthrowing Afri can attacking an American li brary in Cairo or assaulted by an Indonesian breaking up an American reading room in Ja karta In many other countries gov ernments disturbed about Amer ican policies or programs usu ally confine their objections to diplomatic exchanges or public statements But in Moscow Cairo and Ja karta recently the regimes there seem to have encouraged helped stage or connived at de structive attacks on American occupied buildings by demon strators protesting US actions in the Congo The depredations promptec Secretary of State Dean Rusk to declare in a statement that such violent acts cannot but affec relationships between nations Resort to riot and violence against foreign mission strike at the heart of the system of diplomatic intercourse the es tablished channel by which one nation communicates with an other Rusk said More than 50 American em bassies libraries or other of fices in some 30 foreign coun tries have been attacked by mobs since July 1962 Only one American is known to have been injured in the attacks which resulted in more than worth of damage Some countries have paid or offered to pay repair costs In donesias President Sukarno said his government would pick up the repair bill estimated a the two American libraries his followers wrecked Cambodia has said it will paj for 5123000 worth of destruction inflicted by government ap plauded mobs last March on th American library and embassj residence in the capital o Phnom no money ha yet been received The Russians and Bulgarians have indicated they will pay for damages to American buildings in Moscow and Sofia caused b African student mobs las month Czechoslovakias Communis regime has called for the re pair bill for damage don simultaneously by African stu dents to the American Embassj and 12 official cars in Prague In most instances in the las several years US Information Agency libraries there are about 250 scattered abroad have been the prime targets of antiAmerican mobs around the world Officials here think Com munists led or took part in about twothirds of the library attacks and that a third of the assaults were directed by the governments of the countries in which they occurred There are several theories why foreign mobs which often include students who spend a good deal of time in American libraries like to attack the reading rooms Ideological minded officials here say some of the assaults particularly those led by Com munists or nationalists indi cate the libraries are feared as sources of education against ex tremism and are therefore logi cal targets for attack Other officials note however that most of the libraries are centrally situated and on routes taken by mobs and therefore arc easy for the demonstrators to get at Fire stones and paint seem to be the prime weapons of mobs that have attacked American buildings abroad The arsenal varies however Moscow dem onstrators favor inkpots prob ably supplied by the Soviet gov ernment which is the sole man ufacturer of everything in the USSR However Brazilian crowds have used tar in attacks on American buildings African students in Bulgaria have thrown steel bars As expected antiAmerican demonstrators often seize and desecrate any US flag they can reach and sometimes they hack the American

parallel action already taken with re spect to the Army Reserve and National Guard The units involved are 112 re covery squadrons and 43 recov ery groups These are ground units whose mission is to provide for support of regular Air Force military planes at civilian airports fol lowing an attack on the United States that might have knocked out military fields This support included such things as ground maintenance and food and lodging for crews The Air Force said reviews have indicated that these recov ery units could be deactivated without unduly impairing Ail Force combat effectiveness and with accompanying cost sav ings It did not say how much money might be saved Air Reservists involved in the disbanding of the recovery units the Air Force said will be given an opportunity to train as individuals or to transfer to other units to the extent their jobs and grades are available This was the second and final cut in the reserve recovery unit program Last July and August 91 squadrons and 40 reserve recov ery groups were deactivated At the time it was said the Air Force had determined there is no foreseeable future military need for these units The recovery program was started in 1960 and was ex panded later to include dispersal of military aircraft to civilian airports in a national crisis that held a danger of attack on United States Such a dispersal designed to make the regular Air Force less vulnerable to knockout on the ground was accomplished during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis At its peak the reserve re covery program included 18000 reservists The newspaper that makes
