By JAMES MARLOW Associated press New? Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - The war in Viet Nam is like a blind puppy. It scampers, skips, butts its head, barks in pain. With this year almost half over, the end is still no more in sight than at the start of 1966. There was chaos in Viet Nam, criticism at home, confusion elsewhere among Communists and non-Communists in the first half of 1966. In Indonesia the Reds suffered disaster without any war at all. Near the end of 1965 the United States stopped bombing North Viet Nam while President Johnson sent his emissaries scooting around overseas, talking peace, seeking signs of it. There were none. Hanoi stood firm. So did Johnson. The bombing was resumed. The ground fighting continued. More deaths on both sides, more U.S. troops to Viet Nam. At home the critics of, the war teamed up on Johnson, in and out of Congress. Johnson ordered a restrained war, wary of the critics, concerned about the dangers, perhaps with Red China, if he stepped it up too much. And as the routine war continued chaos- engulfed South Viet Nam. Public opinion polls showed dwindling confidence in Johnson's handling of tbe fighting. In America youths paraded, performed and protested against the war. This was a mixed picture, too. While some of the protesters must be credited with earnest convictions thoughtfully arrived at, for others the motivations probably ranged from a simple desire to assert themselves to discontent with things in general. But they made noise. So did the Buddhists in Viet Nam. Right in the midst of the murky war they gyrated through the streets of Da.Nang, Hue, Saigon, demanding civilian government. Premier Nguyen Cao Ky and his government of generals agreed to oblige, set in motion the machinery for civilian government. Rendered ridiculoui by success, the Buddhists then demanded a quick exit by the generals. ...» * * Looking back on it, their whole performance looked Irresponsible for they never made dear bow they would run a gov- lernment or even that they could. But they performed. Buddhists, men and women, burned themselves .to death, spread altars in .the streets, multiplied anarchy. Ky suppressed them. Their futile lead- ,er, Tri Quang, took refuge in a hunger strike. Ky grabbed him, empty stomach and all, put him in custody. The Buddhist revolt collapsed. But all this involved months, slowed the war, made many Americans wonder whether this country should be mixed up in it at all. And even if Ky emerged looking like a strong man, this may not last in a land so unpredictable. But it was a slow six months mostly everywhere, and just as murky as Viet Nam. 1,000 Catholics Riot in Polan By GENE KRAMER WARSAW, Poland (AP) — About 1,000 hymn-singing Polish Catholics clashed with club- swinging police Sunday night in two attempts to march on Communist party headquarters in Warsaw. At the height of the outbreak, helmeted police charged into a chanting crowd of youthful supporters of Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, the Polish- primate, and began swinging their truncheons. Newsmen saw at least two persons struck by clubs and reported several arrested. • The violence erupted 10 years to the month after the bloody 1956 riot of Polish workers in Poznan which set off a shock wave felt throughout the Com munist world. The trouble in Poznan was a forerunner of the Hungarian revolution. The Catholic hierarchy and Poland's Communist regime have been at odds for months over a proposal by Polish bishops for Polish-German reconciliation. As a result of the controversy the government rejected a proposed visit to Poland by Pope Paul VI, barred Cardinal Wyszynski from traveling abroad and closed Polish borders to foreign pilgrims during the celebration this year of the rnillenium of Christianity in Poland. + * * On May 29 several hundred demonstrators tore down and burned a big government signboard in Gdansk — Danzig —after an ovation for the cardinal. Police broke up the crowd and arrested more than a dozen.

But a bulldozer operator breaking ground for a new apartment building here really hit the jackpot. His big 'dozer blade clanked against metal. It wouldn't move. Further digging by hand uncovered a steam locomotive lying on its side. It was later learned that it had been blown over during the hurricane of 1926 and covered up rather than moved. TEACHER WAS NEPHEW OF PUPILS GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - Not many teachers faced th« problem confronting Samuel S. Smith when he began teaching in a one-room schoolhouse at Little Poplar Grove. Among Smith's 40 students were three of his aunts, two uncles and a sister. "None of my relatives seemed to know what to callnie," he said. "So usually they didn't call me — they just came after me." strators refused to let motorcycle police .clear the street .in front of the primate's palace and the policemen finally rode off. Sunday night's demonstrations started after more than SO,000 Catholics jammed St. John's Cathedral and nearby streets for. services including 1 -a weeklong celebration of the millennium in Warsaw, Hundreds of Communist party workers blocked street intersections to try to keep Catholic crowds from surging into the center of the city. One group of more than 4,000 Catholics massed outside the palace of Cardinal Wyszynski. When traffic police attempted to clear the streets, demonstrators lashed out with their umbrellas. Abonut 1,000 of the demonstra^ tors chanted 'Primate, primate" and "Catholics unite" as they marched toward the downtown headquarters of Wladyslaw Gorhulka's ruling .Polish.
