The Enemy Within: Corruption Grows In South Vietnam SAIGON (AP) The Viet- nam war has spawned an un- cerworld of about foreign- era, including Americans who foster the black market and "are not effectively under the control of any government." That's the judgment of a cor- ruption fighting United States government group which wants these alien American, South Korean, In- dian, Filipino and statesless civ- vilians-kicked out of South Vietnam. The South Vietnamese govern- ment, which expresses concern about the black market and cor- ruption, has been reluctant to IN CALGARY STAY AT THE ATLANTA MOTEL WHERE YOU ARE A STRANGER ONtY ONCEI 4!

Inevitably, this lack of action suggests to some U.S. authori- ties that certain key South Viet- namese officials must be in on the black market and smuggling profits or (2) accept- ing bribes to look the other way. NUMBER Reporting confidentially t o high U.S. officials, the govern- ment's Interdepartmental Ac- tion Task Group estimated that what it called "an illegal com- munity" includes about "third-country nationals" and about Americans, both ci- vilians and military deserters. Most are said to lite in the Saigon area amid a refugee- swollen population in a crazy tangle of rundown slums and huts. Among them are many Amer- ican, South Korean and Filipino civilian workers attracted to PHILIPS COLOR TV RADIO t TV JAl.IV 9 302 13th St. N. South Vietnam by high-pay war contract jobs which now have run out. Others are men fired from such jobs for dabbling in illicit activities, chiefly money manip- ulation. Still others belong to a strange breed of drifter who fol- lows wars wherever they break out in the world. The main motive is profiteer- ing. "This is the land of the big as one top U.S. official put it. Though their documents may have expired members of the great colony of illegals in Sai- gon find it easy to get new visas, work permits, identifica- tion and post-exchange ration cards on the black market. Just about everything is avail- able for a price. LAW HELPLESS The U.S. command court-mar- tials military deserters, thieves and black marketeers when it catches them. But the courts have held that American civil- ians in South Vietnam cannot be tried under military law. And U.S. civil law does here. So it's up to the South Viet- SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES namese police and immigration agencies to push or expel law- breaking American civilians, But this is a rare occurrence. Sources connected with the U.S. mission's irregular prac- tices committee say fewer than 10 Americans have been jailed, and these were flagrant viola- tors. When the South Vietnamese do act, they only impose fines. "A fine isn't much of a deter- rent when there's so much money to be made on the black the sources say. While the U.S. mission tries to goad the South Vietnamese into such action, such as deporting erring U.S. civilians, American sources say the Philippine em- bassy "c o u 1 d n 't care less" about repatriating its errant na- tionals, although the Philippine government did send a ship to South Vietnam recently to take home any Filipino who wanted to return to the islands. An American expert said the ship could accommodate 400 persons, but only about 40 showed up. "They don't want to he said.

The trumpeter swan is the official emblem of Grande Prairie. There are about of the birds left in the world and about 120 of these general- ly nest in the Grande Prairie region. John Kohuch of Fort St. John, B.C., was fined last week after he pleaded guilty to killing a trumpeter swan in the Sas" toon Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary. The rare swans are protected under regulations govern- ing the hunting of migratory birds.

PH. 327-7244 Lelhbrldge Financial Aid Needed For Transit Run EDMONTON (CP) A city official said today he doubts if a rapid transit system sched- uled to be in operation by De- cember, 1973 will proceed with- out provincial support. Highways Minister Gordon Taylor said Wednesday in Cal- ;ary the provincial government s not prepared to directly fi- nance rapid transit because it is too premature. Stan Hampton, utilities com- missioner for Edmonton, said the total cost of Edmonton's >roposed rapid transit system is million. The city was counting on sub- sidization of 40-60 per cent of the capital cost if the system was to be in operation by 1973, a deadline Mr. Hampton feels is now impossible fn achieve. Mr. Taylor said there Is noth- ing to stop Alberta cities from using money from the provin- cial land bank to establish traf- fic corridors to be later desig- nated for rapid transit. "But this is the wrong time to go into a rapid transit sys- he said, because of the over-all cost to mil- jion _ for an operation "that has no hope of beginning to pay its way."
