Minister Cham, a Saigon phy sician, listed six reasons wh regular North Vietnamese so diers seldom choose to defect Because they move in units It is more difficult for thi North Vietnamese to change sides with impunity. Each uni bas a political officer, and eac soldier receives a thorough po litical indoctrination before de parting for South Vietnam. Th Vorth Vietnamese hesitate tode 'ect because they rarely have relatives -or friends in South /ietnam. Many fear punishmen "rom the 800,000 anti-commu nist refugees who fled the North n 1954. Many believe the Saigon 5overnment will forcibly ejec hem should they defect. Others equate defection with dishonor able surrender, Cham said. If, after living in the South or a trial period, the North Vietnamese elect to return lome, then, the Saigon govern ment .will accord them freedom do so, the minister said, le implied .that because Hanoi oes riot admit having troops ti South.

Most of the 894 North Vletna- lese;who have rallied to.the aigon government have be- ome members of armed prbpa- anda teams, which defend pro- incial Chieu Hoi centers and elp recruit new. defectors.

Thus far in 1969, 36,229 men nd women presumed to have een communists have rallied o the Saigon government. But in general, thte defectors have been functionaries or common soldiers, not ranking officials in the National Liberation Front. .. · Depending on whose estimate one accepts, between one and 20 per cent are South Vietna- Life's Like That Committee approved the plan aimed at giving 18-year-olds ad- 'ance notice of their draft pros- ects by a surprise 31-0 vote Thursday.

Later the train was operated by the Colorado Southern Railway, a Burlington subsidiary, as the Texas Zephyr between Fort Worth and Denver. Last summer the Burlington sold the cars to two Denver businessmen and they have been standing in the Burlington yards here since. Robert D.

He said bidding on the train will start at $30,000, its estimated value as scrap, and may go as high as $250,000, Interesl in the sale of the silver-colored train has been high, Esbenson said. "One foreign government which I can't name, has ex. pressed interest, probably t( put the train back into use,' he said. "Another man has spoken of the possibility of buy ing the train and converting i into a motel, with the idea, 1 guess, that kids who never lave ridden a train could get a chance to sleep in an upper berth." Esbenson said another prospective buyer is an Ohio merchant who goes in for advertised "train load" sales. If ie gels the train, he might pack t with television sets and other appliances and move the entire cargo to another section of the country. But most of the inquiries have come from railroad buffs who would just like to own one of he trains that made transportation history.

The House Armed Services To Tell About Their Boo-Boos LOS ANGELES (AP) - Grad- late business students at the Jniversily of Southern California recently told their instruc- ore they were tired of hearing only about success stories and wished some speakers would .ell about their boners. So the USC faculty lined up a speakers' series for this fall, advising each guest to prepare a alk not only on their successes, mt on their classic boo-boos as well. Among those accepting the challenge: Walter O'Malley, iwner of the Los Angeles Dodgers; Richard Cooley, Wells Far\o Bank president, and Richard V. Frank, owner of Lawry's |"oods. But reports from the Senate n d I c a t c d Armed Services Chairman John C. Slennis, D- tfiss., was reluctant to put the lill on the floor where critics, who count Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., have a host of roposed revisions including elimination of all college draft deferments. Stennis could not be reached or comment but Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, who favors elimination of the Iraft, discounted those reports. An effort to eliminate all col- ege deferments was ruled out of order by a 21-10 roll-call vote n the House committee that in- licated the strategy that may )e used to block draft amend- nents on the House floor. The elimination of college draft deferments was proposed y Rep. Richard H. Ichord, D- Mo. Deferments "in time of a hooting war one of the biggest mistakes we have made," lie laid.

Pike D-N.Y., and Lucien N. Nedzi, D-Micli.--con- tend deferments are unfair simply because they put the burden of fighting to men who don't have the academic ability or money to go to college. Nixon's lottery plan is aimed at letting 18-year-olds know Ihcir draft prospects the following year so they can make career plans accordingly. The 305 birtlidates for the following year would be drawn out of a hat in late September or early October to determine the order of callups. Men whose 19th birthdays fall on the first dates drawn would now they face the draft early in the year. Those with the last )irthdates drawn likely would escape the draft entirely.
