Mon April 2 1973 Each Has His Problems Thieu on War Peace 81111iltiRY I men comes close to a diplomatic put-down for Thieu although Agnew is one of Thieu's greatest fans and Most enthusiastic supporters his regime In addition to meetings with Nixon his itinerary includes visits with US labor and veterans groups a speech to the National Press Club in Wash ington a television appearance and a visit to the late Lyndon Johnson's grave in Texas When he left Saigon Saturday Thieu said he was making the trip "to express our deep gratitude for the noble sacrifice of the American sol plan has encountefed opposition in Congress and has undoubtedly been further imperiled by horror stories from released US prisoners of war about how badly they were treated White House aides insist that Nixon is still serious about reconstruction aid but knows ne's got his hands full politically One said Friday that the President continues to believe that the "central issue in Indochina is diers on our land" The summit meeting with Nixon was sought by Thieu and Nixon has not been overwhelmingly enthusiastic about it He is throwing a Qsmall black tie dinner for Thieu Monday night but won't be present at a big official state dinner for him in the White House in Washington later in the week Vice President Spiro Agnew will play host at the dinner instead of Nixon That arrange the normalization of relations with North Vietnam" In other words the President believes that the only way to calm things down in the long run is to calm down North Vietnam and aid would help Thieu can expect to encounter demonstrations on his visit He is no favorite of the US peace movement which continues to survive although the Vietnam war officially is said to be over PERHAPS the stickiest issue in the meeting will be the question of possible US reconstruction aid to North Vietnam Nixon has said many times that he favors such aid and once used the figure $25 billion over a five-year period But Nixon's TnE T7011LD SOUTH VIETNAMESE President Nguyen Van Thieu arrived in Los Angeles for his talks with President Nixon scheduled this morning On his arrival Thieu said he came to say thanks to the Amer-Jun

Cincinnati By JAMES McCARTNEY Herald Washington Sumo SAN CLEMENTE Calif President Nixon today opens a summit meeting at the Western White House with South Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu to lay plans for the future US role in Southeast Asia The decisions they will make in the next two days could cost the US taxpayer new millions or billions and have a decisive effect on questions of war or peace in Vietnam Thieu wants economic aid as well as money to support his military machine a total of more than $24 billion probably considerably more HE IS also decidedly cool about Nixon's plans for reconstruction aid to North Vietnam afraid that such aid would strengthen his enemies Nixon however has his problems One is that he would like to see real peace In Vietnam through rigid adherence to the two-month-old Vietnam ceasefire agreement His guest at these talks however has been shooting up ammunition at a furious rate in spite of the ceasefire contributing US officials say to many "major" viola- tions The Communist side has contributed to major violations too with the result that the war goes on THE US taxpayer however is picking up the tab for South Vietnam's military activities thus helping to finance the continuing war 25 Are Injured In Downtown Blast 1 MILE'S PRESIDENT SALVADOR Allende is now 1 convinced that the US government conspired along with the International Telephone

Vietnam are among steps that the United States could take if Hanoi does not live up to terms of the ceasefire agree melt He spoke in answer to questions at a news conference Page 13A Major Flooding Threatens Carolinas A major question of the summit is whether Nixon is prepared to crack down on Thieu and demand tighter South Vietnamese adherence to the ceasefire agreement Nixon has the power because he controls the pursestrings One well-posted official said he believed that Nixon is prepared to tell Thieu to "cool it" on the battlefront but didn't pretend to know how strong Nixon may make the message It is unlikely that Nixon would cut military aid to Thieu certainly not so long as the Communists are continuing to infiltrate supplies and men into South Vietnam estimated at $50 millionS100 million He said an estimated 5000 persons were left homeless in the state and 250 were injured Some 1000 homes were damaged he said Police said a tornado touched down in at least Falls SC

Marshal Norman Wells said the cause of the blast was not immediately determined but it "probably was a natural gas explosion" Shattered were Clara and Al's Cafe and Bar and apartments above It a small apartment building behind the cafe and a storefront church beside it Wells said one body was found on the sidewalk in front of the cafe one was found in the rear apartment building two others in the basement under the cafe one behind a cold drink cooler in the cafe's bar area and another in an apartment above the cafe Wells said firemen had to use hand saws to reach injured persons because of a heavy presence of natural gas Three survivors were dug out of rubble on the cafe building's second floor and another out of the rear apartment building Wells said there was no ire after the explosion which shattered windows in a block-wide radius THE CURRENT price tag on US aid is secret although the tentative US budget for 1974 allowed for $19 billion That figure is likely to be low unless the ceasefire starts to hold Thieu is also seeking about $500 million in "economic aid" He also would like a major piece of the action in any reconstruction program that might be undertaken for Indochina as a whole ington the unit was to move on to Miami to go ahead and bug Mr O'Brien's phone and the phones of top officials down there You know that's quite a list for any group and this in essence was what this particular unit was involved with" he said Weicker said he is as concerned withan "apparent coverup" of the facts behind the GOP spying as he is of the spying itself He said Haldeman was the key figure on both the White House staff and on the Committee for the Reelection of the President THE DISMEMBERED AND decomposed bodies of two young girls have been found off the beach south of Fort

with the heaviest flooding in many years Sion news program "Face the Nation" said Kennedy's office was regarded as a "real gold mine" because potential anti-war and other protesters visited there One of McCord's primary assignments as security chief of the Nixon campaign committee was to provide protection against disruptive demonstrations during the GOP campaign Weicker described this Surveillance as sort of "the exhibition schedule before we got to the main event" one undetected Wagergate break-in late in May and the abortive June 17 raid that ended in the arrest of McCord and four other men "1 think you ought to know that the schedule for the weekend the schedule which never came off was (that) once the Wagergate was accomplished then the next activity was to go back to the McGovern headquarters which they hadn't succeeded in going into that (earlier) weekend and break into that McGovern headquarters" Weicker said GLIBATEll MIAMI "I DON'T THINK it's fair to point the finger at him and say 'This is the man that's responsible' Weicker said "All I'm saying is that when it came to personnel he knew what was going on" Weicker said "And there was nothing in the way of policies that was going on that he didn't know either "I think it's absolutely necessary that Mr Haldeman testify before the committee" Weicker said The White House has said it may allow some presidential assistants to appear informally and in private before the Senate unit The price tag for the United States on reconstruction aid is also secret although a total of $5 billion for South Vietnam Cambodia and Laos has been mentioned by the administration For Thieu the trip and the meetings with his powerful protector are essentially a public relations exercise an attempt to improve his image in the United States to make sure that the money keeps flowing in to support A CEVERSE TALKATHON tested the taciturnity ents of 35 normally talkative girls Sunday They tried to stay mum together
