The overwhelming adoption of the resolution by Congress in 1964 preceded the rapid escala- tion of American troop strength in Vietnam. Fulbright recently held hear- ings on the controversial naval incidents of Aug. 2 and 4, 1964, involving two U.S. destroyers and North Vietnamese torpedo boats. He concluded the Johnson administration gave misleading information to Congress regard- ing alleged attacks by the Com- munist vessels. Kennedy renewed his charge there is "deep seated corrup- tion" in the South Vietnamese government. He said Johnson had commented on such allega- tions recently in a Beaumont, Tex., speech that "there's steal- ing in Beaumont, Tex." "'If there's stealing in Beau- mont, Tex., it's not bringing about the deaths of American Kennedy said. Sen. Mark 0. Hatfield, R-Ore., said the escalation decision "should not be made by one man."

Drive (Continued From Faqe 1) nist offensive. But the offensive itself has made it difficult io get any non- war program on the road. It has brought a sort of creeping para- lysis. The Communists now have so much initiative that they can hamper, if not para- lyze, any efforts of the govern- ment to repair its leaky political and economic structures. It takes only, mortar or rocket at- tacks to produce 100 per cent alerts and keep attention cen- tered on the threat. Saigon is badly off balance. In any case, corruption in South Vietnam has become an institution. South Vietnamese leaders, government and opposi- tion, do not deny charges of cor- ruption. They admit it and often pledge themselves to work against it. Some of those now involved in proposing a program against corruption were ministers and generals in the past who at least tolerated widespread graft. Out of office, they can view it with public expressions of alarm. But the corruption continues and still is of huge proportions. For example, the chief of a province who says that now is the time to tighten belts, to sac- rifice for salvation of the coun- try, goes along willingly'with an edict to close bars and night clubs from which he had been raking in money. He turns his attention are plenty of other sources of profit. Graft is deeply ingrained be- cause it is a share-the-wealth program involving the economic and finance chiefs of a given province, the province chief himself and the higher-ups who must be paid, too. Sales of fake identity cards for draft evasion, draft exemp- tions and civil service jobs are common occurrences. A police- man will look the other way for when a citizen lacks an iden- tity card. A guard at check- point will not search under a truckload of watermelons, for a price, although arms for the Viet Cong may be under the. melons. A mother can save her boy from army service, or get him a safe assignment, for the equivalent of about sisted. The United States has practi- cally no control over those com- modities once they land on Viet- namese soil. Among the victims of corrup- tion are the hundreds of thou- sands of helpless refugees made homeless by the Communist at- tacks. As soon as money is giv- en out for rebuilding, construc- tion prices skyrocket. The gov- ernment provides cement and roofing, but when the time to re- MEMORIAM MARY B. RILEY Requiem High Mass will be offered 10 a.m. Monday in Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Toledo, for Mary B. Riley, 67, of Toledo. Burial of the former Lima resident will be in Gethsemani Cemetery. Miss Riley was born here, the daughter of Harry and Delia Riley. She was graduated from Lima Central High School and for several years was society editor of The Lima News. She left here more than 30 years ago to make her home in Toledo. Miss Riley died Monday in Colorado Springs, Colo., where she was a resident of the Union Printer's Home. She had been ill several years. There are no survivors. FLORENCE M. ANDERSON CONTINENTAL Mrs Florence M. Anderson, 70, of Rt. 1, died "p.m. Thursday in Lima St. Rita's Hospital after an illness of four months. She was born Jan. 26, 1898, near Fostoria, a daughter of Foster and Mary Yochum Rose. She married John S. Anderson on June 2, 1920, and he died Feb. 4, 1941. Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Floyd (Helen) Zim- merman, of Rt. 1; three grand- children; and a sister, Mrs. MARGARET HYLAND J Margaret M. 79, of 1115 N.

When they talk about it at all, the leading politicians agree that corruption must be at- tacked from the top levels, whence through it the seeps down population. aU But there is a great deal of mutual protection at top levels, and punishment is rare. The government has pledged itself several times to act. Not much action is visible. The National Salvation Com-j mittee is made up of a combina- tion of opposition politicians and influential people supporting the government. Vice President Ky is reputed to be one of its top figures. The cobwebby tangle of Viet- namese politics is such that it is difficult to sort out just who is doing what to whom. Though Thieu and Ky both are said to encourage the move, the vice president is frequently reported to be at odds with the president. However, half a dozen opposi- tion politicians with whom this correspondent talked at length say that in the light of the crisis posed by the Tet offensive it is likely lie president and vice president have submerged their differences. Both are said to be encourag- ing private, nongovernment ef- forts to build civilian morale. Rt. 1.- She was a member of Christ Lutheran Church. Services will be 2 p.m. Sat- urday in Walker.
