SEVERAL of the informants said they had discovered, while in prison, a sardonic saying favored by the police"Khong, Danh Cho Co.,, - "If they were innocent, beat them until they become guilty. The accounts of the informants indicated that the worst torturing took place while prisoners were being interrogated in police centers--before they were transferred to prisons such as Con Son, and Chi Hoa. Con Son is South Vietnam's biggest civilian penitentiary, situated on Con Son Island, 140 miles southeast of Saigon. Chi Hoa, the coup :ry's second largest prison, is in Saigon. The informants said that most of the torture and interrogation took place between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. they said some of the prisoners, under torture or fearing torture, agreed to become police agents to win their release. Some of the documents purportedly smuggled out of the prisons gave the names of five persons who had been tortured |j to death recently in jail, and said this was only a part list. IT IS impossible to tell, without government cooperation how many thousands have been arrested since the North Vietnamese offensive began. Most foreign diplomats think the figure is well over 10,000. One American source said slightly more than 15,000 people had been jailed and about 5,000 re leased later. It is also impossible to tell how many of those arrested really have Communist connec- :ions and how many are simply sheriff's deputies.

The guard complained that the identification p i c u t r e s became outdated by fashion-conscious government w o r k e r s adorned with beards, long hair and wigs.

"Instead it took as its first task the forging of a closer bond with (South Vietnamese) President Thieu. "This meant," they said, "nullifying the opportunity for a negotiated solution since compromise would inevitably eliminate Thieu's power." In a news conference Friday, Rogers derided Shriver's assertion and asked why he had not told the administration or the problems was young, attractive state Department of his unhappiness with official.

There s a third category of prisoners as well--people who were ap- prently seized at random and vho committed no crime. They ust happened to have been in he wrong place. Critics of the government say hat each district administration has been given a quota of arrests and that local officials lave been trying to meet the quotas quickly with little regard "or legal niceties.

"This is not really a fabrication. It is political fantasy." *· SHRIVER WENT to Paris in 1968 at the end of the Johnson administration and at the beginning of the Peace Talks which got under way there in January L969. Nixon asked him to stay on and he did for one year. Rogers told newsmen he had checked all available statements Shriver had made at the time land found no reference to eace chance allegedly lost. "Nixon had peace handed to him literally in his lap," Shriver told interviewers Thursday. "He blew it." Reached by telephone at his New York state home, Hamman said the, peace sipal in late October and early November of 1968 and was well known to Nixon and among top government policymakers when the Nixon administration took office in January 1969. "Nixon knew all about it and instead of starting negotiations, he supported Thieu and gave him veto power," Harriman said. "Vance and I both believe the Phone Rates Change ROME (AP) - The Italian government announced Saturday a rate increase for urban :elephone calls and a decrease for long-distance calls, effective Oct. 1. Nixon came to office, and they've missed others since," Harriman said. "We had 'the full information," he said. "We got it from Saigon from U. S. Army intelligence." As he has in the past, Harriman accused Thieu of stalling the talks with debate* on the shape of the negotiating table and refusals to meet privately with the Viet Cong representatives. "It was perfectly obvious Thieu was waiting for Nixon to become President," Harriman said. He declined to elaborate farther on the joint statement, declaring that he and Vance stand firmly behind it. From Page I Trying the streets and drugs in tht jails." Green disagreed with Kinchen's -claim that 95 per cent of population is using one form of drug or another. "I think that's incredible," he said. "I can't prove what he said isn't true, but it's incredible." Kinchen appeared before Baker in May at which time he collapsed in the courtroom after- suffering h e r o i n withdrawal symptoms. The youth pleaded guilty to 18 charges involving breaking and entering, possession of stolen roperty and drug offenses. His awyer pleaded with the judge ,o send Kinchen to the stockade so he could be. treated under a special drug program that uses the heroin substitute methadone. Baker agreed and sentenced tinchen to two years in the tockade and two years in pris- n. But a Florida appeals court ater ruled felony sentences of more than a year could not be erved in county jails. Kinchen withdrew his guilty )lea Friday and Baker granted lis request for ? new trial, allowing him to return home to await it.
