WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1968 T U C S O N D A ( L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE? U.S. OFFICIAL: Vice Threatens Vietnam Future from Page reports, told the senate of a gold and opium smuggling operation which lie said "involved tin. highest South Vietnamese government officials." President Johnson, speaking Friday in Beaumont, Tex., said "certainly, they have corruption and we also have it in Boston, in New York, in Washington meats for processing until a fee mproves his finding tech- ique." --"The very high officials vho condone, and engage in muggling, not only of dutiable merchandise, but undercut the nation's economy by smuggling ?old and worst of all, that unmitigated evil -- opium and other narcotics." Community Shopping Centers Preferred, Survey Shows By GIL MATTHEWS Citizen Staff Writer . A survey conducted by students at Pueblo and Palo Verde higb schools shows that most Tucsonians prefer to 'do their shopping at community shopping centers because of downtown traffic congestion and parking problems. In addition, distributive education students discovered that most Tucsonians would avoid the downtown area even if bus service were improved. The surveys were carried out in the general East and West Side areas. A similar canvass was made by students at Rincon High School, but results were not made available. Approximately 500 persons were interviewed. To the question, "What is the single biggest drawback to the downtown shopping area?" Tucsonians replied, percentagewise: (East Side) Parking space, 38 distance from home, 27; inconvenience, 8; traffic, 21 appearance, 9; lack of variety in stores, 6; quality of clothes sold, 1; high prices, 2; un- friendly merchants, 2; other reasons, 3; no reply to question, 9. (West Side) Parking space, 42.2; traffic, 8.3; not enough stores, 2.2; too crowded, 5.7; transportation problems, 5.8; other reasons, 20.7; no reply, 15.2. Westsiders broke down this way to (he question, "What method of transportation do you usually use for downtown shopping?" Car, 77.7; public transportation, 6.3; walking, 4.3; no reply, 13.3. Eastsiders were even more convinced that their family car was the best way to travel. Eighty-nine percent of them said they drove their car to their favorite 'downtown shopping spot. Nine per cent didn't answer, 1 per cent said they rode the bus. Probably even more discouraging to transportation officials were the results of this question: "Would you be likely to shop more often in the downtown area if there were more convenient, frequent and reliable jxiblie transportaton?" Fifty-three per cent of the Westsiders answered no. Only 23.5 per cent said yes. The remainder said "maybe" or just didn't answer. Eastsiders said "No" nearly 70 per cent of the time. Only 22 per cent said yes, 4 per cent indicated "probably," and 6 per cent declined to answer. What do Tucsonians feel is the most atrractive shopping center in town? According to the s u r v e y , t h e overwhelming choice is El Con. El Con polled 66.2 per cent of the West Side vote and almost 90 per cent of the East Side vote. Students have entered their surveys in the state Distributive Education Clubs of American creative marketing competition in Phoenix. In addition to the surveys conducted by Rincon, Pueblo and Palo Verde, Tucson will be represented in the competition by a study on the effectiveness of local sales people, done by students at Catalina High School.

Established 1960 and in Johnson City. Somebody is stealing something in Beaumont right now." The U.S. adviser, however, told AID that South Vietnamese corruption, when viewed across the board, "is appalling; it is frightening enough to make one have grave doubts that there is any possibility of ever achieving any reasonable degree of honesty and integrity in Vietnamese officialdom." An honestly run customs operation "conceivably could produce revenue equaling the entire AID program" less commodity imports, he said. That would be about $300 milKon. An aide, to the chief adviser said "no statistics are available and, it is doubted, ever will be on the amount of taxes losi through granting of favors and concessions by officials in return for a small reward." The team chief's. January re port detailed a South Vietna mese power struggle which led to dismissal of the director-gen eral of customs, Nguyen Van Loc --not related to the pre mier of the same name. A month earlier, the U. S. ad riser had written Washington "It has become obvious tha Loc has at the very least (1 condoned important contraband smuggling operations, an'd (2 was promoting the day-to-da system of payoffs in certain areas of customs activities " In an experiment on graf curtailment, U. S. adviser moved.to Tan Son Nhut airport in Saigon to work elbow-to-elbov ·with Vietnamese officials. The result: The Vietnames government collected 740,00( piasters in customs duties for the first seven months of 1967 without close surveillance; took in 3.9 million piasters in the nest three months working under the eyes of U. S. advisers. "Every dollar of revenue GVN customs produces is a dollar the U S. doesn't have to put into this country," said the advisers's report. "Our proposals to attain these revenues have in the past been criticized by the hearts and minds purist as being too 'operational" -- that is involving U.S. rather than advising. "While this argument has been a continuing thing, it is now affected by the emergence of increased revenues as the number one priority. So at least o u r o b j e c t i v e s are not eminently acceptable; and when the ends become so very important, the means are no longer easy to reject on abstract argument, and so we have arrived at a sort of transposition: "Operational" is still a bad word, but 'presence' is all right. By presence we mean not the giving - of-advice-from-a-discreet- distance, but elbowto-elbow, not unfriendly surveillance. "The hearts and minds purist does not give up easily, however, and while the country is overflowing with examples of his failure, it'is still necessary to affirmatively prove onr point." In his recommendations to AID, the adviser listed 17 types of corruption and said "the list could go on indefinitely." His examples included: --"The court officials who can keep a person locked up for months on technical, trumped- up charges until a payoff is made, or who can secure the release of a tried and convictec criminal upon a similar, but higher payoff." --"The police officials whose 'check points' are synonymous with 'shakedown points.' " - "The government officia who refused to approve aid overseas 7 training participants until he has received a persona fee from the prospective partici pant." --".The customs official who sells to the highest bidder the privilege of holding down for a specified time the position where the graft and loot possi bilities are the greatest." --"The petty official who can't 'find' an importer's docu CONVALESCENTS ...recovered from colds »ix! other minor ailments, on regular hiflh-eilorio dicta, will nroslly find SUFEK IVATRON's «tra ·loria bmeficiil...piruculirly in tgj- ·og, milkjlialfes, neUnb, puddings anil' iilK ntotit drinli.
