    PROFESSOR NGUYEN VAN HIEU, A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT (NLF), OF SOUTH VIETNAM, TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) THAT THE UNITED STATES BOMBING HALT OVER NORTH VIETNAM WAS "A GOOD THING." HE ALSO SAID THAT THE N.L.F., THE POLITICAL ARM OF THE VIET CONG, WOULD AGAIN CALL A TRUCE IN VIETNAM THIS CHRISTMAS TO ENABLE SOUTH VIETNAMESE SOLDIERS TO VISIT THEIR FAMILIES IN VIET CONG HELD AREAS.

    SPEAKING ON THE FUTURE OF SOUTH VIETNAM AFTER A UNITED STATES WITHDRAWAL, PROFESSOR VAN HIEU SAID THAT THERE WOULD BE WHAT HE CALLED A "NATIONAL GOVERNMENT". THIS GOVERNMENT WOULD HOLD ELECTIONS, AND WOULD BE SELECTED FROM ALL SECTIONS OF SOCIETY. HE SAID THAT EVEN PEOPLE WHO HAD NOT ACTIVELY SUPPORTED THE VIET CONG COULD TAKE PART, PROVIDED THEY HAD NOT HELPED THE UNITED STATES.
