The wording of the announce- ment made it clear the new American aid would be of the same type it has been since 19C1, although greater in quanti- ty. No new combat role was fore- seen for the American troops, who would continue to serve as advisers and in supporting roles. Gradual Buildup Neither the Vietnamese gov- rnment nor U.S. officials would say how many new U.S. person- nel are expected hero. A U.S. spokesman said, however, that the arrival of personnel would be gradual, and the number now planned might be changed with developing circumstances. The announcement followed conferences between Premier Nguyen Khanh and U.S. Ambas- sador Maxwell D. Taylor. In Washington, indications were that the augmentation of U.S. personnel eventually might amount to several thousand but something less than the mentioned in some reports. Same System The additional personnel, it vas understood, would not be sent as combat-type units, bill vould go as individuals or small groups of specialists, techni- cians, combat advisers and rainers. This is the system al- ready used in the Viet Nam pro- >ram. The communique declarer .hat "this increase in U.S. aid as well as other aid from friend- y countries granted at the re- quest of the Vietnamese govern ment should be construed as a warning to the Communists in Hanoi (capital of North Vic "The Free World 'has decided to help the Vietnamese govern ment and Vietnamese people to fight for.freedom and indepen dence. Besides, it should not be forgotten that this aid is a de monstration of U.S. dctormina lion to supply everything neces sary to our fight. The Republic of Viel Nam is glad to accep (his act of the U.S. govern ment." Adviser Increase The communique listed foul areas where U.S. aid would b elieve and know that this hap- >ened. And the Soviet Union also knows il. "If another of our men is mur- dered we will not have another alternative but to answer shot 'or shot independently of what :he American government be- ieves or not." In answer lo a queslion at a rambling 3'A-hour news confer- ence, Caslro said in any possi- )le Cuban action at Guantana- mo "the Soviet Union knows if we are forced to take measures we would not be looking for arms." When asked about a possiblity of meeting wilh Presidcnl John- son or olher American officials, Castro rejected Ihc idea saying, 'il is impossible to think about such a meeting al a high level." Referring to the nominalion of Sen. Barry Goldwatcr ot Arizo- na as the Republican nominee for president, Caslro said "Re- publican and Democratic ad- ministrations have- been s." In reference to Cuban aid lo clher Latin-American revotu- ionary governments, Caslro said, "Cuba has never admitted officially that it has ever given material aid to them." He said Cuba "will supporl only those movements in coun- ries which do nol respect our sovereignly." Asked if such aid would include armaments, Cas- lro said Ihc kinds and quantities of such aid "will depend on the ;ircumstances and Ihe form and dnits of our resources ant (See CASTRO, Page 10) Cotinly Court Rescl The County Court session scheduled for Tuesday morning has been reset for 1C a.m. Thurs day, County Clerk Va!
