    SOUTH VIETNAM'S PRESIDENT-ELECT NGUYEN VAN THIEU YESTERDAY (MONDAY) DISBANDED THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE AND THE PEOPLE AND ARMY ADVISORY CORPS.

    ITS MEMBERS HAD BEEN WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE GOVERNMENT FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS.

    THE DISBANDMENT CEREMONY WAS HELD AT THE INDEPENDENCE PALACE, AND PRESENT WAS VICE-PRESIDENT ELECT NGUYEN CAO KY.

    THE TWO LEADERS HAVE RULED SOUTH VIETNAM FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS -- THE QUIET-MANNERED NEW PRESIDENT PREVIOUSLY TAKING. A BACKGROUND SEAT TO PREMIER KY -- BUT THE SEPTEMBER THREE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION GAVE THE STAMP OF CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THEIR RULE.

    STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WERE TAKEN IN SAIGON FOR THE INAUGURATION CEREMONIES. HUNDREDS OF CHAIRS WERE SPREAD OUTSIDE SAIGON'S FORMER OPERA HOUSE FOR THE CEREMONY.

    A PLATFORM WAS ERECTED ABOVE THE STEPS WHERE THE TWO LEADERS WERE SWORN IN TODAY AGAINST A BACKDROP OF VIETNAMESE FLAGS AND BANNERS, ONE OF WHICH READ: "LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM."
