Remni^TPOWs Gelling Divorces WASHINGTON (UPl) Thirty-nine of the 420 married American prisoners of war returned from Vietnam either have gotten or are getting divorces, the Pentagon's chief medical officer reports. The figure was given by Dr. Richard S. Wilbur, assistant defense secretary for health, in a weekend interview with several newsmen. It includes men whose wives divorced them while they were in captivity, and other couples who have sought divorces since the prisoners were released. Dr. Wilbur also said four returned prisoners are returning to hospitals for treatment of emoiional problems resulting from their imprisonment. He said those are among about a dozen men believed to have returned from Vietnam with such problems. WASHINGTON (UPI) - The United Slates is paying Laotian Air Force pilots for combat missions they don't fly and the salaries of Cambodian soldiers who either don't exist or are children, according to a congressional staff report. The report, written by two staff investigators for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who toured Southeast Asia in April, detailed military conditions in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam in the aftermath of the Paris peace agreements and the subsequent withdrawal of American troops. The study, issued Sunday by a subcommittee c|f the foreign relations panel, said investigators James G. Lowcnstcin and Richard M. Moose discovered the United States was making monthly lump sum payments to Laotian Air Force pilots for not flying missions. "We were told that the Lao Air Force wants to comply with the cease-fire but that the military region commanders, especially in the south, continue o call for strikes," the staff aides reported, adding that the funds were paid "to encourage the air force not to fly." The two investigators said they confirmed that the money to pay Laotian flight salaries comes from the Pentagon and is disbursed through the Central Intelligence Agency outpost in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. The report also confirmed stories of how thousands of children under 16 were on the Cambodian Army payroll — perhaps as many as 4,500. Cambodian unit commanders "like to recruit children because they can pocket their pay and the children don't com plain," the report said. The study said Lowcnstcin and Moose were also told by Cambodian officials that as many as 100,000 "phantom" soldiers may have been listed on that country's military payroll. The major reason for the deception, according to U.S. and Cambodian authorities, was a corrupt system that allowed top-ranking Cambodian military officers to pocket the money allocated to pay the fictitious soldiers. The staff report was generally pessimistic on the prospects for a lasting peace in Vietnam if the United States relies on political maneuvering. The study saw "little prospect that peace will be restored by political means, given the apparent continued determina tion of Hanoi (and the Vie' Cong) to displace the existing political structure in the south and given the South Vietnamese government's adamant refusa" to afford either the Communists or the non-Communist opposl tion any meaningful role in political life." The investigators also concluded that President Nixon's administration "may have mis calculated badly" if it though the Communists "would abandon their lifelong objectives or that (South Vietnam's) Presi dent (Nguyen Van) Thieu would be willing to risk the tenuous security won for him by the United States." 2.131 31-35 | W ( 6,24 | "Blind Ad Charge—Me Card ot Thanks.
