Tewptwne 328-9231 Confrontation shapes up over Spratly archipelago By DANIEL SOUTHERLAND Christian Science Monitor HONG KONG A new and more complicated confrontation seems to be shaping up between China and South Vietnam over yet another group of islands in the South China Sea. China has accused the South Vietnamese of "invading" several islands in the Spratly archipelago, located 270 miles off the Vietnam coast and about 700 miles south of China's Hainan Island. A foreign ministry statement issued by Peking warned that China "definitely will not tolerate infringement on China's territorial integrity and sovereignty" with regard to the Spratlys. The Chinese had issued a similar warning before ousting the South Vietnamese last month from the Paracel Islands, which are located much closer to China and about 500 miles north of the Spratlys. After being driven from the Paracels, the South Vietnamese landed troops on at least two (some reports say four) of the Spratly Islands, all within the past few days. The Saigon government promptly and "completely" rejected the Chinese protest reasserting its claim to the islands. Taiwan and the Philippines have also made claims on the and are reported to have small army units of their own stationed somewhere in the archipelago. Thus of the four claimants, FBI nabs man at funeral ROCK ISLAND, 111. (AP) Relatives and friends gathered for the funeral of Thomas Kelly. Among them was his son, Allen, 28, and a close family friend, Robert Wickwire, head of the Rock Island office of the FBI Wickwire arrested the son, and the widow thanked him when, they left. Allen surprised everyone by showing up for his father's fu- neral. He had fled to Canada in 1969 to avoid U.S Army in- duction and had been living in Prince George, B.C. Young Kelly, charged as a draft dodger, was free on bail Monday. He appea- red Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Robert Morgan. Frank Budelier, another close friend of the elder Kelly, said the son sought unsuccessfully in 1969 to obtain conscientious-objector .stilus. "The night before he was to be inducted, he married his girl recalled Budelier. "Then the young couple left for Canada. "I just couldn't believe it when I attended the wake Thursday night and saw Allen there. Then at the funeral Fri- day I saw Wickwire, and I knew Allen would be arrested. "Wickwire had the option of having his men pick up Allen or doing it himself. The arrest was a traumatic experience for the widow, but she .actually thanked Wickwire for the manner in which he handled the unpleasant task." 'Blundering9 Japanese envoy fired TOKYO (Renter) vice-foreign minister, Shinsaku Hogen, 64, resigned today after the ministry was accused of a series of diplomatic blunders. The most recent instance occurred in Washington a week ago when the foreign minister, Masayoshi Ohira, and the ambassador there, Takeshi Yasnkawa, mistakenly told the press that Emperor Hirohito would visit the United States by the end of the year. This was quickly amended to some time "in the near future at a mutually convenient date." Hogen is being replaced by Deputy Vice-Foreign Minister Fumihiko Togo, 58. Other alleged diplomatic blunders were the failure of embassies in the Middle East to predict last year's Arab- Israeli war, and tbe failure of embassies in Southeast Asia to warn Tokyo of tbe depth of anti-Japanese feeling before the premier visited tbe area last month. SOUTH KOREA i NOETH VIETNAM only China, apparently, has yet to establish a military presence there. Meanwhile, China also issued a warning to Japan and Korea that they would be responsible for "all consequences" arising from their Jan. 30 agreement for the joint development of a large area of the continental shelf in the East China Sea. The pact was signed "behind China's said the Peking statement. Although preliminary explorations have yet to be concluded, it is believed that huge oil deposits lie under both the South China and East China Seas. When the Chinese seized the Paracels Jan. 21 after a two- day air, sea, and ground battle, some diplomats concluded that China's main motivation was oil. The Vietnamese obviously are not capable of winning out in military confrontations with the Chinese. But President Nguyen Van Thieu may have other aims. He may be hoping to stir up nationalistic feelings against China to divert attention from his critical domestic problems. Mr. Thieu's championing of the Vietnamese claim would also appear to put Hanoi and the "provisional revolutionary government" in an embarrassing position. The Vietnamese Communists can hardly come out with any criticism of their Chinese allies. But neither would they want to appear to be renouncing what many Vietnamese consider to be a valid historical claim to the Paracels and Spratlys. Another hope of Mr. Thieu may be to get the Americans more deeply involved on his behalf. The United States position has been that it regretted the use of force in the Paracels dispute, but that it is not going to take sides. Saigon has been less than happy with this attitude.
