Willard "Nig" Ford, 43, ofter New Riots By Students In Viet Nam By PETER ARNETT SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP)—Students in three south Vietnamese cities rioted today against president Ngo Dinh Diem's regime, reliable sources said. Word that the schoolboy rebellion had spread from Saigon to the countryside came as Diem announced that martial law throughout South Viet Nam would end at noon Monday, after a 27- day state of siege. The announcement said all administrative functions would revert to civilian agencies. The sources said 6,000 students in the mountain capital of Dalat, 140 miles northeast of Saigon, barricaded themselves in four or five high schools in a shouting, brick-throwing demonstration that was quelled by armed Vietnamese soldiers. Smaller demonstrations were reported in high schools in Bien Hoa, 30 miles north of Saigon, and Vinh Long in the Meking Delta 65 miles south of Saigon. Hundreds of students were carted away to detention camps in all three cities, informants said. Saigon, which has been the scene of dozens of smiliar demonstrations in the past week, was reported quiet today as students again attended classes under armed guard. Nearly 3,000 school pupils and university students have been arrested in Saigon. More than 1,000 were reported still in detention camps. Reliable sources said a strike by doctors and interns in four hospitals run by the Saigon University faculty of medicine ended this morning with the release of a professor and his wife and daughter who had been arrested earlier in the week. Martial law went into effect just before government security forces raided Buddhist pagodas last month. Today's decree noted that while martial law will end, the technical state of national emergency that went into effect Oct. 15, 1961, will remain in effect. Under the state of emergency, interrogated about suspected vice operations along the Collinsville Road "strip" area was named in a second complaint on a charge of keeping a house of prostitution at the motel on Rte. 159. Ford and his wife, Norma, were rounded up at the motel last November when state police and sheriff's deputies, armed with search warrants, staged three simultaneous raids on three establishments, near Collinsville in a crackdown on alleged prostitution in the area.
