22 THE IHHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, March 5, 1973 Hanoi shifts U.S. attitude By FLORA LEWIS billing New York limes Service groups. PARIS Although the pris- oner crisis drew more atten- tion, the most interesting de- velopment at the international conference on Vietnam was evi- dence ol a subtle shift in Han- oi's attitude toward the U.S. North Vietnam had said for so many years that its major aim was Eo get the U.S, out of Indochina that (he goal tiacl come to be taken for granted, It is no longer quite so evident. In a number of ways, Hanoi's behavior at the conference indi- cated a determiintioti to affirtn direct American rcsponsibiliU for the Vietnam cease-fire, and inevitably therefore a continued1 degree of U.S. influence. One way the North Vietna- mese showed their unwillingness to let the U.S. off the hook was a repeated insistence that re- construction aid be given di- rectly rather than tlirough sonic international body. This was some tiling of a sur- prise. It is almost an axiom of international relations that aid comes packaged with political strings, but they ars much looser when the aid program is dcliv ered by several n aliens acting in concert, 01- by an in ternattonal organization. In the case of North Vietnam, there is also good reason to think that the total of aid would be substantially higher if it was not given directly. throu gb international Alberta budget summary Resistance Political resistance in the U.S. is going to make it hard to get an aid bill through Congress, much harder if it is not in an international framework. Japan, which is ready to pro- vide aid, can give more easily tlirough a consortium of na- tions than on her own. and it ought to be easier for Hanoi to receive it that way than by rect dealings with Tokyo. Henry Kissinger, president Nixon's adviser in national se- curity, has said tJiat a substan- tial U.S. aid program will help persuade Hanoi that it has an overriding interest in keeping the peace, but the North Viet- namese, at least during t h e Paris conference, said that the U.S. owed aid and cannot ob Bcure the obligation by ccntri insistence Another sign of insistence on keeping the U.S primarily re- sponsible was in the Comtnun ists' attitude toward the United Nations. Kissinger was negotiating the cease-tire with Hanoi's Le Due Tho, North Vietnam seemed eager and will- ing to associate the U.N. Sec- rotary general with guarantees. Secretary general Kurt Wald- DEFICIT helm was invited, without the slightest controversy, to be the 13th parly at the international conference of six communist and six non-communist parlies. Ho was expected to become chairman. Some U.N. sources said China had raised strong objec- tions. But when the foreign ministers assembled in Paris, Hanoi and the Vietcong's pro- visional revolutionary govern- ment who made the most dem- onstrative demands that Wald- hcinvs role be restricted to that of an observer. They were so harsh that Canada's Mitchell Sharp complained of treatment of the world's top civil servant. Repeatedly, the Vietnamese communists said that the sig- natories to the cease-fire nust bear "prime responsibi- ly" for preserving it. That means the three rival Vietna- mese governments and one for- ign country, the U.S. Arguments The same principle was brought to the fore in testy arguments over how truce sup- ervision machinery should Junc- tion.

Canada wanted reports on vi- olations to be sent to some "in- dependent political authority" and some outside arbiter es- tablished fo recall the confer- ence if the cease-fire broke down. There was a weak compro- mise, providing for reconvening oE the conference if the cease- fire broke down, but it did not erode the north Vietnamese ar- gument that the U.S. must re- main first on the line of cease- fire guarantors. Whatever the reasons, the feeling came tlirougli clearly at the Paris conference that Hanoi does not want the U.S. to for- get all about Vietnam and go home.

The institute said the finding may help doctors identify >eople who are vulnerable to he mental disorder and to diag- nose it in patients. often called split personality, is a complex and sometimes severe mental llness that affects more that wo million, persons in the United States and Canada. The NIMH said researchers lave known for some time that schizophrenic patients have less active monamine oxidase than mentally healthy people or o t h cr psychiatric patients. Monamine oxidase is an impor- tant enzyme in nervous-system chemistry, and its activity can be measured by its presence in the blood. An NIMH research team headed by Drs. Richard Wyatt and Murphy set out to determine whether the low en- zyme activity was an inherited trait or whether it ocurred after a person was affected b y schizophrenia. After tests oil 13 sets of iden- tical twins, the researchers found the defect was genetically determined. "The scientists believe that this phenomenon may be a use- ful 'genetic marker' for vul- nerability for NIMH said. DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY!
