* Ford Asks Nearly $1 Billion Viet Aid Friday, April 11, 1975, THE HERALD. PrgyoJJ|ah=EaiLL (Continued from Page 1) June. He plans a series of meetings with leaders of Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia and Japan. He asked Congress to repeal its ban on U.S. military aid to Turkey and said he is considering economic and military aid to Greece —both NATO members. —He told the Communist world not to mistake detente as a license to "fish in troubled waters." But he urged Congress to repeal trade restrictions against the Soviet Union tied to emigration of Jews. He expressed hope of new U.S.- Soviet accords to limit nuclear weapons. He said he plans a visit to China this year. -He said the United States will continue peace efforts in the Middle Bast. —He called on North Vietnam to "cease military operations immediately," and he urged Russia, China and other signatories to the 1973 Paris peace accords on Indochina to use their influence to halt the fighting. Ford said he wasn't blaming Congress for the erosion of those accords, and offered and asked for cooperation between the White House and Congress. He gave this analysis U.S. inability to act in Vietnam in recent years: "We deprived ourselves by law of the ability to enforce the agreement —thus giving North Vietnam assurances that it could violate that agreement with impunity. "Next we reduced our economic and arms aid to South Vietnam. Finally we signalled our increasing reluctance to give any support to that nation struggling for its survival." Now, Ford said, "let us put an end to self-inflicted wounds. Let us remember that our national unity is a most priceless asset. Let us deny our adversaries the satisfaction of using Vietnam to pit Americans against Americans." On other subjects, Ford: -Warned that the United States, approaching 50 per cent reliance on foreign oil, would be highly vulnerable to a new oil embargo. He renewed his appeal for conservation. —Said it is proper for Congress to investigate U.S. intelligence activities, but "sensational public debate over legitimate intelligence activities is a disservice to this nation and a threat to our intelligence system." -Cautioned that any significant cut in his defense budget "would endanger our national security and thus jeopardize the peace." South Viets Bolster Defense of Province (Continued from Page 1) in the raids northeast of Saigon. The command said the warplanes battered a big Communist truck convoy hauling supplies down the coast of the South China Sea toward the battle zone. In Washington, President Ford asked Congress Thursday night for nearly $1 billion in military and humanitarian aid to help the South Vietnamese government "save itself." Ford also asked for authorization to use U.S. troops "for the limited purposes" of evacuating Americans and endangered South Vietnamese from the war- torn country. Opposition politicians in South Vietnam welcomed additional aid but said Ford should direct his efforts more toward bringing peace to the country. "The American aid is logical, but there is another totally different thing that we need —a diplomatic effort, not military aid, to end the war," said Tran Van Tuyen, an opposition party leader in the National Assembly. A high-level South Vietnamese army officer expressed pessimism about getting more aid, saying Ford was merely "passing the ball to Congress," which would "return it to where it came." Soon after Ford's speech, the U.S. Embassy in Saigon said American officials who want to leave South Vietnam could fly out with their families on U.S. Air Force jets. American Pilot Dies In Cambodia Crash (Continued from Page 1) with a Cambodian who claimed to be speaking for the insurgents but who has been discredited as not connected with the rebel leadership. (In a Khmer Rouge official statement broadcast by Hanoi Radio today the rebel leaders denied that Khmer Rouge insurgents had met in Bangkok Livestock Threatened By Storm By United Press International A snowstorm threatened livestock on the range in Montana, and floods spilled over parts of southern Alabama Thursday. National Guard troops were sent into both stricken areas to help. Montana Gov. Thomas Judge sent guardsmen and transport helicopters into emergency haylift operations in four north central Montana counties where blizzard snows have stranded cattle herds. However, snow squalls and fog Thursday forced some of the guard helicopters to turn back early. Guardsmen also were ordered into action in southern Alabama .where as much as 12 inches of rain fell in some areas, flooding streams, closing highways and farm roads and forcing lowland dwellers from their homes. In Montana, some ranchers were locked in by deep snow drifts and said they had not seen their cattle herds since blizzards hit Glacier, Toole, Liberty and Cascade counties early this week. * Energy (Continued from Page 1) Fannin said. "It's a vast regulatory machine ... that will reach down into the operation of every business and every American. It is totally inconsistent with the purpose of the bill ... just ridiculous and farfetched." last Monday with Long Boret and said they would never negotiate. Thailand's Foreign Minister Chartchai Choonhavan had reported the meeting.) The Phnom Penh sources said an approach was made to Boret through Cambodian officials while he was in Bangkok on his way back to Phnom Penh after accompanying President Lon Nol to Indonesia. Boret doubted the man's credentials but met with him Monday in order to^explore any chance of opening a dialogue with the insurgents, the sources said. Experienced political observers here believed it unlikely that the insurgents would agree to negotiate at the present time with a military victory in sight.
