LEYKTT WASHINGTON' (CFi A Canadian volunteer worker, captive in Vietnam for five years, was described Monday as "gentle, unassum- ing and lie- cause fhe Americans living with him ignored him." Marc Caver, 29, of St. Ray- mond. Que., is among (he ci- vilian internees to be released by North Vietnam under the ceasefire agreement. Tom Luche. director of In- ternational Voluntary Serv- ices (IVS) Inc.. knows Cayer only through his file. There it Ehcws his scholastic back- ground including Laval Uni- versity where he obtained a bachelor of science degree in agriculture. "He wanted to work with natives, teaching them mod- ern methods of farming" Luche said in an didn't know him he was before my time.'' In his application, written in French, Caver spelled out his reasons for joining the voluntary service: "This comes from the heart. I've always wisied for better understanding, greater friendship and a more equi- table balance among people. Peace and happiness aren't found in money, but in friend- ship. I have applied so I can go and help another people who are poorer. Jess devel- oped in the field o( agricul- improve the fate of poor farmers." But Marc Cayer go! little opportunity to fuL'ii his dream. He joined IVS In October. 1967. and arrived 'j South Vietnam 01 .November after training in Washington and the Philippines, rle had barely begun his Yietaamese- language studies when he was ssr.t to Hue in the Central HigHa.Tiis in December. A later, he was captured. "I knew him for a snort time, just a couple of days, reaily. m December, IKT.'1 said Fred Braniman, a for- mer colleague new living in Washington and active in the peace movement. "That was two Konths before the Tet (lunar Dew year) offensive. I was an IVS worker in Laos. We had a couple of days together at Christmas at a get-togeiher in EM Lac. Later, we drove to Dalai and spent two davs there. "He didn't speak much English, buj I spoke French and he was glad to see me. He was Li toe middle of his orientation and learning Viet- namese at the tjme. "He became unhappy be- the Americans living with him ignored him. He was Ic-oking forward to escaping Ills fellow-servers and work- ing with the people." Branfman later left Ibs IVS and has since been critical of ils operations. Unking them loosely with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. "But I'm sure Marc wasn't involved in that. He was gentle and were many like that. The IVS took in token foreigners so as net to appear to be as much a creature of the U.S. govern- ment as indeed it was. Mare was one of those." DESCRIBES CAPTURE Chris Kenkins is another former IVS worker who latex quit. He was in Hue when Ca- yer was capture didn't know him for very sad Jenkins, at that time an English teacher and adviser in community devel- opment. "He stayed with me and other IVS volunteers at my house in Dalat before his signmcnt to Hue. "I went there just before the lunar new year offensive broke oui. I was staying a Vietnamese family and I hid under a bed whenever the Viet Cong came. "When the fighting began, .Marc and some others went down into a bomb shelter un- der a house. Later they heard someone banging on the door and wen; up 10 let them in. It was the local Viet Cong un- c'Drgrmind. The people in the hunker wore under house ar- rest for five days, then they were taken to a public ing. then off into the jungle. "They went from ramp to camp in a circle around Hue. Later, the women among them were released. They told of how well they were treated." Among the women Sandra Johnson and Dr. .Mar- jorie Nelson, both Americans, capiureti at the same time as Cayer. They reported that Ca- yer and a U.S. colleague. Gary Daves, were alive and well up to that time. Jenkins said the invaders took the city "in the space of one city was sur- prised durir.s tha celebra- tions." "It took the Americans 18 of that time shelling and take it back in street-by-street fighting. Jeakms said: '-We were more worried about Marc than we were about the women." The women could speak Vietnamse and Enq- had only French "and we were concerned that he could not make his position clear to his captors."
