Sermans catch bank robbers mission complete WASHINGTON (AP dent Nguyen Van Thieu of South Vietnam was to leave Washington today, reported to be convicted that in a six day round talks he has won as- surances of short term Unit- States economic support and probably U.S. military aid in case of dire need. Concluding his U.S. visit, he planned to fly aboard a U.S. Air Force jet to Austin, Tex., for a luncheon meeting with Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson. Then he travels to Rome for a meeting with Pope Paul. Both Vietnamese and U.S. of- ficials reported the Vietnam- ese leader was satisfied with the outcome of his visit. Thieu told reporters at a farewell re- ception that he felt he accom- plished his mission. In talks at the National Press Club and with members of the Congress. Thieu stressed that his country still needs U.S. economic suoport but he said he never will ask for a return of U.S. ground forces to help fight against North Vietnam and the Viet Cong. In response to questions, Thieu said he hopes it will not be necessary to ask for U.S. air support and he will not do so if China and the Soviet Union exercise restraint in pro- viding arms to Hanoi. He said that fighting now j under way in South Vietnam poses no serious threat to the security of his country. j Some Vietnamese officials said the Communist objective is to use the border area be- tween Cambodia and South Vietnam as a base and to em- ploy the main Cambodian port near Phnom Penh as an alter- native to the overland Ho Chi Minh Trail for the movement of supplies.

"We will not disarm until such time we are' assured their actions, based on the govern- ment negotiations, are Means said on his arrival here Friday. This contradicted reports that the six-point agreement signed by Indian leaders and a repre- sentative of the U.S.. attorney- general's office spelled out ex- act terms of a disarmament. The pact was said to require that Indian militants leave Wounded Knee in South Da- submit to arrest, and be taken to Rapid City, S.D., for arraignment as soon as word is received that the Washington meeting is under way. "The federal government has duped the press and the world sadd Means. "The con- frontation at Wounded Knee is not over, and will not be over, until the federal government proves to us it is sincere in the negotiations." Means said he will telephone his followers to disarm "when they prove to us they are nego- tiating with us in good faith."
