WORLD'S WEEK By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS They came out of Communist captivity after two years and announced that they would campaign to get American troops onl of Viet Nam, "The United Slates has nothing to gain from the war in Viet Nam, for the Viet Cong are the people," they told a news conference in neutral Cambodia. It sounded strange for they were American soldiers themselves, Sgt. George E, Smith of Chester. W.Va., and Spec. 5 Claude D. McCIure of Chattanooga, Tenn. An agent of the Viet Cong who accompanied them to Cambodia said they had been released "becauve of (he popular movement in the United States against Johnson's policies." Smith and McCIure were two of four Americans captured Nov. 24, 1963 when the Viet Cong overran their U.S. Special Forces camp 25 miles from Saigon. One of the others, Sgt. Kenneth M. Roraback, also of Chester, W.Va., was executed last September. The fourth, Sgt. Isaac Camacho of E 1 Paso, Tex'., escaped in August. Why had Smith and McCIure changed their rninds about fighting the Viet Cong? Although they denied it, the betting was that they had been brainwashed by their captors. Reactions of antiwar groups LSU Sorority Initiates Two LC Students BATON ROUGE- Donna Foyleman and Sandy Yeldell of Lake Charles were initiated into the Alpha Lambda Chapter of Tau Beta Sigma, honorary band sorority at LSU recently. Sandy was chosen outstanding pledge and was president of the pledge class. Sandy is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. U. Yeldell, 1307 E. School St. and Donna is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. C. W. Fugleman, 1009 Fair Oaks Lane. that had been demonstrating in the United States were divided. "Millions of Americans support you," cabled nine staff members of the Students for a Democratic Society. "Help us tell the iNlh about Viet Nam." "I am just a little bit wary about people who come out of | imprisonment saying that," said Sanford Gottlieb of the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy. "If these were their own ideas, it would be wonderful, but if they are saying this as the result of intense indoctrination, it's not so wonderful." As for the war itself: A predawn attack Saturday by the Viet Cong on an enlisted men's billet in downtown Saigon killed at least two U.S. servicemen and wounded more than 60 others. Military authorities said the daring raid started when a hand grenade was thrown at the Met- ropole Hotel, which was used to house American troops. The grenade didn't explode, but about 10 minutes later a j truck stopped in front of the ho- j tel. Five or six Viet Cong i jumped from the- truck and fired j machine guns at a' military policeman. The terrorists then ran for cover just before the truck exploded, wrecking the hotel and knocking out electric power over a wide area. Saigon civil authorities said at least 100 Vietnamese were killed or wounded by the blast. In other war developments: "We have stopped losing the war," said Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara as he concluded a 30-hour visit of inspection to South Viet Nam, But, he added, the size and intensity of recent Viet Cong assaults "expressed a determination to carry on the conflict which can lead to only one conclusion — it will be a long war." On the racial front, the apostles of violence in segregation received setbacks in two Alabama courtrooms. An all-white jury in Montgomery convicted three Ku Klux j Klansmen on a federal charge I of conspiracy to -violate the civil i rights of Viola Liuzzo of Detroit.
