   Kingsport News (Newspaper) - November 16, 1967, Kingsport, Tennessee                                Thais Shrug: Let Americans Worry BANGKOK (CDN) The United States appears to be embarked In Thailand on one of those ambiguous adventures which have damaged the cause of foreign aid at home and abroad. The ambiguity flows from Washington. Rutherford Poals, deputy director of aid, told a House Committee last spring that "Ihe Thai program (192 million dollars in military and economic assistance over the past two years) is defensible only in terms of our joint alliance commitment with Thai- land." A few days later, William Bundy, Assislant Secretary of Stale for this region, bluntly told the same committee, "with respect to Thailand, there is no connection between our access to Thai bases and our aid commilmcnls." ONE FINDS here that the aid Is principally directed against pockets of guerrillas operating in three areas, particularly in the highly developed northeast along the Mekong River. Some 439 American civilians and American military plus 500 hired Thais are deployed to wage a struggle about which the Americans are plainly more excited than the Tliais. Even businessmen in the Mekong Valley are described as relaxed about the Communist lhre.il. A telling exchange occurred recently between the Thai Minister for Development, Nai Pole Sarasin, and Howard Parsons, director of the aid mission here. Irked at Parson's pressures to give more attention to the guerrillas, Sarasin suddenly exclaimed, "Howard, I know lhat you've got problems in the northeast but I've got lots of problems right here in This is precisely (he attitude which Ihe American mission combats. Tliey want the Thais to accept the northeast as their problem but they stumble repeatedly against the fact that the most imaginative officials are gripped by the lightening pace o{ change and opportunity in Bangkok ST. LOUIS (CDN) Dr. William H. Masters, co-author of fha book "Human Sexual has completed another book to be published next year, entitled "Human iexual Inadequacies." It will contain a "new con- cept" in the treatment of sexual >roblems besetting men and ivomeu. The field, he ong been neglected. The 52-year-old SI.

LBJ Has New Travel Buddy WASHLNGTON (CDN) President Johnson has a new traveling companion and White House symbol a mongrel pup named YuM. The little white dog scrambled under or around Mr. Johnson's feet on his cross-country Veterans' Day tour of military bases and aboard the Carrier U.S.S. Enterprise. He clearly has captured the President's heart even more to than Him or Her, the Beagles who once Inhabited the Executive Mansion but died early, accidental deaths. Her swallowed a stone. Him was run over by a car in the White House driveway. Yuki's origins are unknown. The President's daughter, Luci, picked him up in a gas station in Texas and brought him. home. He was turned over to the First Family, after the birth of Luci's boy, Lyn. At Ft. Benning, Ga., where troops were drawn up In impressive array to welcome the Commander-In-Chief, it was Yuki who scrambled off the plane first and delighted the crowd. Leaving the Enterprise, Yuki was on a leash with George Christian, White House Press Secretary, on the other end. It was one of a few times he was confined. At McConnel Air Force Base, the Presidenl gently nudged the lovable 'mull wilh liis fool while thunderchief jets roared over the field. Yuki Is said to be Japanese for snow. There's another dog at the White House, a while collie, and some replacement Beagles. 'Yuki has become the official Presidential dog, I said one of Mr. Johnson's aides. "Why, he can almost talk." Even without talking, clearly is a potential campaign asset in 1968. Baby Orky, Killer Whale, Finds Home LOS ANGELES (CDN) Baby Orky, a killer whale, is getting along just fine hi his new Marineland surroundings, thanks to Clyde dolphin. The 3-year-old whale was caught accidentally by some Canadian fishermen a few weeks ago. They freed him from (heir nets and turned him over to Marineland curator John Prescolt, who flew him to his new home in a specially tigged plane. "He wouldn't cat anything for JO days just what we were able to force-feed says Prescott. "He was upset by the plane ride, the confinement and the change in food. "Then we Introduced Clyde and two other dolphins into his tank. The two look to each other right away. Orky even lets Clyde nuzzle him and lay on his snout."

Which should cause Clyde some concern. Clyde weighs only 105 pounds. "Next to lhat 17-loot whale, Clyde looks like a liny says Prescott. When Baby Orky finally grows up lie may stretch from 26 to 33 feet and weigh as much as pounds. "Orky is quite a handful even says Prescotl. "I'm always afraid of him when I'm in his tank. Once I was swimming around him and he got tired of me and startec pushing. Believe me I got out of there fast. He is so huge you could be seriously hurt if he just hit you by accident." None of which seems to bother Clyde. But maybe his good deeds come naturally. He was trained by Ihe kids in MarineJand's explorer scoui troop.

"We have received favorable reviews on our hook in 98 per cent of medical Masters (old a seminar sponsored by Washington University and Ihe :Council for Writing. and Indisposed to waste their time on the provinces. TO JUSTIFY this massive effort in behalf of six million peasants, Parsons and his aides must stress their fears that the guerrillas will drag Thailand into the nightmare which besots Vietnam. This analogy, embellished by American journalists, infuriates the Thai officials. They are delighted !o have Americans bolster the economy of the north country. Thoir visitors are building a network of roads, spending 17 million dollars a year to improve the national police, and launching all kinds of education programs. Their initiatives will cause Thailand to become within a few years one of the world's great producers of corn. The American taste for guerrilla chasing has served Thailand well since 1950 when Marshal Pihul Songgram perceived lhat nothing opens the aid spigots so quickly as a Communist Ihreat. Dean Husk, speaking in 1951 as an Assistant Secretary of Slate, said Thailand have enough resources to take care of herself. But in the years sirce then flie American aid (o this well-endowed nation has run over 1 billion dollars. MORE THAN half of the aid has gone directly to the military and thus reinforced the general's political control. This is now the focal issue with which the Communists undertake to rally the countryside. But the Thais angrily deny that the Vietnam analogy fits them. They have a king who is forceful and popular, they are religiously unified in Buddhism and their farmers are landowners. They remain amateurs at many modern pursuits but they are lively and grasping and anxious to learn. They are not beaten down like the Vietnamese by war and occupation. Their foreign currency reserves are bulging and have no inlention of being dominated by the Americans. If this scale of aid is the price which they want Washington to pay for the air bases here, (lie deal should have been negotiated in those terms. The present arrangement leaves a confusing link between Bangkok and Washington that is certain to cause (rouble in the end for everyone, particularly for the foreign aid program.
