San Antonio Light (Newspaper) - March 10, 1965, San Antonio, Texas -1 r THE DAILY LIQHT Is Delivered to Per Cent More Than All Other San Antonio Papers Combined1 FINAL LIEUT SAN ANTDNID TEXAS Telephone CAS-2441 Classified CA6-1231 85th 50 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10, 1965 76 PAGES U.S.Marine Killed in Viet Nam De Gaulle Wouldn't Back U.S. PARIS Highly- placed French sources said to- day France will not help the United States if the fighling in Viet Nam develops into a shoot- ing war with Communist China. The French position was said to have been relayed to Wash- ington through diplomatic chan- nels in the form of a warning that present American policies run Ihe risk oJ a general war in Asia. Informed French sources said they had every reason to be- lieve that U.S. allies in NATO would stand aside with France or offer only token noncombat aid. "ONLY HOPE" President De Gaulle has re- peatedly slated, both publicly and privately, that Ihe anti- Communist war in Viet Nam cannot be won through military means. He lias said that ne- gotiations, in which Red China would have to take part, offer the only hope of ending the con- flict. The French now argue: Negotiations become more difficult with every month of new fighting and increase t h e hazard of general war in Asia American air against North Viet Nam are simply making Communist Chi- na mora obstinate and less pre- pared to talk, Present U.S. policies are heading toward open war with Peking a war that neither side wants and that the Chinese greatly fear. France has no na- tional interest in such a war. Without n cease-fire, the United States will be compelled to step up its air attacks against the Communist north, extending them ultimately to the capital of Hanoi itself and other industrial centers far beyond the 17th par- allel. These air raids may eventually reach targets on the Chinese mainland. It is possible that the Unit- ed States may be forced to use nuclear weapons against North Viet Nam and Communist China. SOVIET POSITION? French officials, it was learned, are divided as to wheth- er the Soviet Union would come to the assistance of the Peking regime in the event of war. Some do not rule out this pos- sibility, although it is believed here that the Soviets would do everything in their power to avoid any direct involvement. It was conceded, however, that if Russia came to Red China's aid a world war would result and all nations would be involved.
