Vietnam policy panned LETHBRIDGE: 613 4th Avenue South. Telephone 328-4214 Dy FOX BUTTEnFIEI.n New York Times Service SAIGON, Nov. 26 -Ameri- can officials here are secretly planning a major post-war presence of civilians in Viet- nam, with many of them per forming jobs formerly held by military men. Operating mostly under de- fence depart ment contracts, American civilian advi- sers and technicians will stay on in South Vietnam after cease fire, well informed sources said. The civilians will do everything from running Ihe South Vietnamese military's personnel and logistics com- puters, to teaching the Viet- namese Air Force how to fly and maintain newly plovided planes, to repairing the com- plex military communications network left behind by the Uni- ted States Army. About half the civilian work- ers are already in Vietnam, I with others beginning lo arrive i almost daily at Saigon's Tan- sonnhut Airport under confiden- tial contracts signed during the last few weeks. Senior American officials in- sisted that such a continued American presence in the post- cease-fire period "violates ne- ither the letter nor the spirit of the peace as one diplomat put it but the officials, both civilian and military, have repeatedly refused to provide any details about postwar Am- erican planning. "It might upset the Paris ne- a spokesman for the U.S. military command ex- plained, "and it's just not in the national interests (o have these things known." A few Americans and some foreign diplomats here have ex- pressed doubts about the wis- dom of such a post-war policy. It's like 1961 or 1965 all over remarked a western of- ficial who has served several tours cf duty in Indochina. "The Americans are full of optimism again, and once more they are proceeding as the Viet- namese aren't even around. They're just bringing in Ameri- cans lo do Ihe he added. Canadian heroes receive PITTSBURGH (CP) Gar- field Babcock, a Weston, Ont., physical education teacher who lost his life trying to save two students from drowning, was among three Canadian winners of bronze medals annouced to- day. The awards are among 14 given in Canada and the United States by Ihe Carnegie Hero Fund Commission, which hon- ors persons who save or at- tempt to save lives at extraor- dinary personal risk. The 14 medals were accompanied by a total of in money grants. The other Canadian winners are John Kruszelnickl, 52, of Vanguard, Sask., and John Wal- ler Bruce, 22, of Greenwood, B.C. The citations say that Bab- cock, 24, died last April 15 while trying unsuccessfully to save two brothers, H. Edward and John A. Thorneloe, from drown- ing in Ihe Humbcr River at Weston, a suburb of Toronto. The youths' canoe went over a low dam and capsized. Babcock jumped into the river but was caught in the undertow and sank. Edward Thorneloe, 18, was pulled out by a constable but could not be revived. The bodies of John, 15, and of the teacher were recovered down- stream. RESCUED FARMER Kruszelnicki rescued John Ho- lenski, a 69-year-old farmer, from burning at Vanguard last May 5. Holcnski was in diabetic shwk on the driver's seat of a tractor stalled on a pile of planks which had been ignited by the tractor's spinning wheels. Mrs. Ilolenski sum- moned Kruszelnicki and he pulled Holenski lo safety Just before Ihe fuel lank exploded. Both men were admiltcd to hos- pital with burns and only Krus- zelnicki re: ovcred. Bruce was honored for say- ing Allan J. Petty, a 24-year-old highway engineer, fiom drown- ing after the latler's canne cap- sized in a lake near Greenwood, B.C., Nov. 9, 1971.
