Of- ficials in Saigon believed the ad- mission meant the 79-year-old father of Vietnamese commu- nism was near death. Ho's illness was announced in a communique which said: "Over the past few weeks. Pres- ident Ho has not been well.... A collective of profes- sors and medical doctors has been attending him day and night."

"They would hardly issue such a bulletin unless Ho was already dead or In. a! coma ol some said one official in Saigon. Hanoi did not disclose the na- ture of the illness, but Ho had a bad case of tuberculosis in the 1940s, and reportedly had suf- fered from heart trouble and possible lung complications for more than two years. Official Remarks A North Vietnamese official in Paris remarked: "All I can say is what Is presi- dent is an old man." Experts in Saigon said Ho's death or incapacitation proba- bly would result in an intensi- fied power struggle-in North Vietnam change in-the goal of a unified Communist Vietnam. And they said even the jockeying for power might 1' not be evident for some time. "It will be a dictatorship by the party, not a dictatorship by one one expert said. "The Political Bureau and the Central Committee will be the important factors." Known as "Uncle Ho" to the millions of Vietnamese who con- sidered him the father of Viet- namese independence, Ho Chi Minh was the son of an impov- erished minor government offi- cial who r was fired by the French for his anti-French atti- tude. Ho studied In Hue and Saigon, then went to Europe at 19 as a cabin boy on a French steamer. His goal from that time on was Vietnamese independence. Studying for it, planning it, he worked in the kitchens of the Carlton Hotel in London, wet the leading of the time in France, and met Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky in Moscow. Organized Campaign For more than JO years of ex- ile he devoted himself to organ- izing an underground campaign against French rule in Indochi- na. Engaged by Stalin's Comin- tern as an agent, he shuttled be- tween China, Hong Kong and Thailand. Ho returned to his homeland after the Japanese invaded In- dochina in World War II. There he revived an old anti-Chinese underground organization known as the Viet Nam Doc Lap Dong Minh, or Vietminh, to fight the Japanese. Ho was 79 on May 19, and his troops observed his birthday on; Vietnam's battlegrounds. .He made one of his last recorded statements on July 19. HO CHI MINH i Arts By FRANCES tEWINE SAN.CLEMENTE.
