26 'HE LEiHBRIufeE HERALu Jul> 18, i, 3 Open mouth policy shouldn't be foot-in-mouth poliqy SAIGON (CP) With the re- covery of its two missing offi- cers, Canada has returned to its "open mouth" policy in Inter- national Commission of control and Supervision (ICCS) affairs. But care apparently is being taken to make sure that this can not be construed as a foot- in-mouth way of operating, as the Canadians prepare to leave Vietnam. For the last two weeks, Cana- dians have been virtually gag- ged as they negotiated with the Viet Cong's Provisional revolu- tionary Government (PRG) for the release of Capt. Ian Patten and Capt. Fletcher Thomson. Canadian Ambassador Michel Gaubin, the most outspoken member of the ICCS since the Canadians arrived here at the end of January, was virtually silent. Even when the Canadians were finally released neither the ambassador nor other Cana- dians had much to say for the record. It appears the major concern of most of the. Canadian contin- gent is to get out of Vietnam at the end of the month. LEAVES THURSDAY Gauvin leaves Thursday for Ottawa and eventually to his post as ambassador to Greece. His place is being taken by Ver- non Turner, his senior political adviser. Whether the controversial ambassador goss out like a lion or a lamb, will be answered at a press conference just before his departure. His lack of criticism of the Viet Cong following the release of the Canadians is unchar- acteristic. He has made strong statements in the past when helicopters were shot at when flying over Viet Cong-controlled territory, commu- nists. The departure of the Cana- dians is going to be a major loss to the international news services interested in ICCS af- fairs. To all intents and purposes Canada, more particularly the Armed Forces information sys- tem, has been the major outlet for ICCS news. During a meeting of ICCS commissioners, reporters await news in the office of the Cana- dian Forces information officer, at resent Lt.-Col. Jean Boulet of St. Hubert, Que. Boulet, as did the information officers who me before him, comes out of a meeting, checks with the ambassador and tells reporters: "The Canadian dele- gation to the IOCS says GIVEJS DETAILS Boulet then elates what pened at the meeting. Naturally the news from the Canadians must be regarded as biased, al- though Canadians will often give an indication of what the other delegations said. But generally the Canadian statement satisfies the press. Meanwhile, Capt. Geoffrey Haswell of Edmonton, the press officer at the Canadian section of the ICCS compound at Tan Son Nhutair base, is one of the more sought-after Canadians Through him it is possible to get a reservation on one of the ICCS flights throughout the country. The Canadians are fairly ac- commodating about such trips. If there is an indication that the reporter wants to write some- thing about the ICCS, the Cana- dians arrange for passage.
