Cabot Lodge says the situa tion in South Viet Nam has changed for the better since his first tour as the American en voy here When I left in July of 64 there was a question in many peoples minds as to the chances of success in the effort to ward off Viet Cong aggres sion he I find an atmosphere in which it is gen erally agreed that the Viet Cong cannot win militarily Lodge gave his views in an interview with the Columbia Broadcasting System The US Embassy released the trans cript of the interview Monday Lodge left his post here in 1964 to take part in the Republi can nomination of a presidential candidate He returned to Sai gon last month Lodge said the huge US buildup in Viet Nam had made it clear to the Viet Cong that they could not win militarily and that the outcome must be achieved by subversion by ter rorismand by economic means That I regard as a very con siderable change and thats to the good Lodge said Now of course its also true that we and the Vietnamese have not yet discovered an cf fective way to overcome Com munist subversion and terror ism But I think we are learning I think we are making headway on that Lodge said the US and Viet namcse authorities had been making spectacular efforts to fight an economic war against the Viet Cong who are attempt ing to deny rice power and rail transport to the government We met this threat by im porting rice from California coal to Saigon in ships and de veloping a fleet of coastline steamers to make the country independent of the railroad Lodge said Lodge said he would knew when the war was won in Viet Nam when one morninej the young man whos been in the Viet Cong wakes up and says I am not going back today and the reason Im not going back is a I think Ill get killed and b I look around me and I see the
