The facp of this fabled Eastern capital of canals nnd porcelain temples^ of smiles and easy-paced living is changing sharply. Sompthlng American has been added. American aid now Is spread over the very visage of the city. Rig American-styk? automobiles jam the already clogged streets. Americans fill chairs In night-clubs and restaurants. Midwest accents dominate cocktail party conversation. The American Embassy now has 101 on Its staff, in contrast to 30 only three years ago. In the past year 79 members of the American Special Technical and Economic Mission (STEM) arrived. Military Group Here In the same .12 months 73 members of the U.S. Military Assistance Advisory Group took up residence here. In addition there are 13 Point: Four representatives; 16 Fulbright Fellowship people The U.S. Information Service (USIS) has expanded enough to branch into two offices and a library. There are other Amarieans in such United Nations groups here as UNESCO, or ECAFE (Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East,) the FAO (Food Advisory Organization) or UNICEF (U.N.

Now the favored Chez Eve, an air-conditioned eating place and night club, Is crowded with strangers. Reaction Against Newcomer* The general reaction of the old-time foreign resident here isn't hard to plumb. He doesn't like his chummy playground swarming with newcomers. He has lived here for almost nothing and was proud to be treated by the hospitable Thais as, one of their own. All is changed now. House rents have .loubled and even trebled. Servants costs have skyrocketed. Everything for the foreign community jumped In price. Those who were here before the influx of American aid blame the officials who arrived with big allowances for a "hardship post." Ask the average foreigner and he'll say he liked it better before American aid furnished t\\» generators so the power wouldn't fail every few hours. Me doesn't care whether the Chao Phraya River bar has been removed by the American dredge, Manhattan, Tlmilamlers Attitude The oldtime Bangkok foreign resident really can't be persuaded that the Thailanders will change their old pattern—yielding with the wind and waiting to come up a^ain once the storm has passed. The Siamese, the olcltimers say, want to be left alone to play* their own peculiar brand of politics. Many American observers dis- j pufe the oldlimers. They say a definite change for the belter is j taking place iin Thailand under American aid. By helping Thailand attain stability and economic prosperity, these observers bn lieve America is shoring up I he defense line against Communi.s aggression. Time will tell — but meantime the old Bangkok hand fears i precious jewel is losing its lustre "Lively" which once meant ar allowance of food and clothing has come to mean the dress furnished to servants..
