One national magazine claimed to have "exposed" the experiments by having another magician do them. Not so, said the institute: none of the tricks he did Were like those Geller performed. , Both Puthoff and Targ, who performed the study for some undisclosed 'orm foundations and ell, drew no sweeping conclusions from their work. "Wc do not claim that cither of these men has psychic powers," they said. "Wc have observed certain phenomena for which wc have no scientific explanation. Alt wc can say at this point is that further investigation is deafly warranted. Our work is only in the preliminary stages." ,1 Targ, who has A bftckgrouni!

When a military magazine charged money was being embezzled from the fund, construction on the bank was r halted four months before completion. In the ensuing scandal, Defense Minister Nguyen Van Vy was fired and placed under house arrest along with 11 high-ranking officers. The government took over the liability and repaid the soldiers the amounts, which had been withdrawn from their jpay. Since the scandal broke more than 14 months ago, the uncompleted building has remained only a landmark. The Vietnam Credit government's Bank took the other over holdings of the compulsory savings fund—six firms, including an insurance company, a construction firm, a paper mill, a textile plant and a transportation and ; communications concern. But the Vietnam Credit Bank apparently decided the Military present value. The building was constructed on a site on broad Nguyen Hue', half a block from Saigon's river front, in the area where most of the city's tallest buildings have been erected.
