The ruling Revolutionary Command Council has decreed the "Arabization" of all signs, stfeet directions, billboards, nameplales, tickets, stamps and cards. Workers in the city's hotels catering to foreigners are busy daubing black paint over all directional signs in English and Kalian. Such discreet signs as "Ladies" and "Gentlemen" are no longer visible in the lobby of the deluxe Libya Palace Hotel. One no longer can tell whien lobby door to "Push" or "Pull." Elevators' "Up" and "Down" have become unmarked. Even the menus in firsl-class'be diverted. is lo restrict English study to secondary schools. The new prime minister, Mahmoud Maghradi, cited China as an example of a nation with only one language taught -Chinese -- indicating that secondary languages were no longer needed. The prime minister added, however, that Western numbers could still be used -- since they were originally based on Arabic numerals. This new policy makes it unclear as to the future of .180 U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers in Libya, almosl all of whom are English teachers.

Mansfield Blasts Hold-Off On Viet Policy Criticism By WARREN UNA The Washington Post WASHINGTON - Senate majority leader Mike Mansfield (D- Mont.) led off the Senate's Vietnam debate Wednesday by charging that the administration's desire for a hold-off on criticizing U. S. Vietnam policy will confuse only the American public, not Hanoi and not the National Liberation Front. "Saving faces in Washington docs not save lives in Vietnam," Mansfield declared. "The erosion of the nation's strength will continue as . long' as the war continues. It will continue even if, .through changes in tactics, it is possible to cut combat fatalities from 200 a week to 100, or to whatever figure someone calculates may be necessary to make these tragic deaths palatable to the American people.' And then, without naming the administration directly, Mansfield added: "It is long pasl the time when a gadgetry ol words or some neat finesse ol diplomacy can bring this tragedy in Vietnam to an end." .
