About • third rye Frenchman and Foreign Legionnaires, another third, are Moroccans and. the rest native Vietnamese.

A special mission of officers and noii-commlssfoiied officers Is now enroutc from France to Vietnam to train--the new national army. It will be built up at first not by transfer of Vietnam troops now under French comn.and, but by recruiting the village defense units and local war-lord's forces.
