, JUNE 2?, 1968 ALtON EVENING TELEGRAPH Ky Withdraws Into Isolation By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH AWBeiated Press Writer SAIGON (At») - south Viet* ftani'a flamboyant Nguyen Cao Ky, tolled to the ambition to be* com* chief of state under Amer« lean auspices, has abruptly changed style and tactics. His ultimata objecttvft-power-re* mains unchanged, Instead of his famed Captain Midnight flying suit with laven- del' scarf and black baseball cap, the vice president now ears ft Mao jacket. Instead of cultivating friends in the U.S. Embassy, Ky has withdrawn into semMsolation and embarrasses American officials with thinly veiled attacks on the United States. The 37-year-old swashbuckler with a passion for exploits has virtually broken with the American-backed regime of President Nguyen Van Thieu. Reduced to the ceremonial functions assigned to the vice presidency by South Vietnam's new constitution, Ky still pays lip service to the regime. But in the public mind, he is a more immediate threat to Thieu than the Viet Cong, Irt his new image, Ky wants to appeal- a nationalist hero, seeking to free his country as much from the threat of communism. He remains the most prominent and most determined foe of any kind of accommodation or discussion with the Viet Cong. Once the master of South Vietnam's military regime as premier. Ky's decline really began When the ruling group of generals*»and discreet American prodding-persuaded him to abandon his bid for the presidency and enter last September's presidential elections as fhieu's running mate. American officials believe Ky has lost so much power and influence in the past two months that he is no longer a physical threat to Thieu. Thieu himself and those close to him disagree. Since early May, many of Ky's friends have been removed from important posts and replaced by Thieu nominees. Yet the more .Thieu strengthens his position, the more he seems to fear that the vice president's supporters may resort to Violent action before it is too late. A get-away helicopter stands permanently on the lawn in front of the presidential palace. The president's personal security force has been assigned to keep an eye on Ky and his entourage. The president's friends point out that Thieu's elimination would automatically put Ky into the presidency. The South Vietnamese constitution requires new presidential elections in case the presidency becomes vacant—but the vice president assumes the post in the interim. In South Vietnam, that provision can be interpreted in widely different ways. CHOOSE FROM A LARGE SELECTION OF FINE... In sizes 5 to 20. Sheaths, Full Skirts, 2-Piece Dresses end Sun Dresses & Tents.
