  • Description

    General Ky, on July 2, paid a visit to a Montagnard Training Center near Pleiku. The Montagnard youth who have been under training have been at the centre for about three months. During their course, they were taught some reading and writing and given some military training. The ceremony attended by the general was their graduation.

    His appearance was one of a number of public functions that the general has been attending since coming out on top in the recent Vietnamese crisis.

    Our purpose in making this appearance was to urge the tribesmen to vote for pro-government candidates in the September elections to select and constituent assembly.

    It is also reported that the general is seeking to give himself a benevolent image--a kind of father of his country.
