    SOUTH VIETNAMESE VICE PRESIDENT NGUYEN CAO KY YESTERDAY (MONDAY) RENEWED HIS APPEAL FOR A VOLUNTEER ARMY TO MARCH ON NORTH VIETNAM. HE MADE AN EARLIER APPEAL LAST WEEK IN THE PRESENCE OF PRIME MINISTER NGUYEN VAN LOC DURING A RALLY OF PROSPECTIVE VOLUNTEERS AT HO NAI, IN BIEN HOA, JUST NORTH OF SAIGON.

    VICE PRESIDENT KY SAID - "I WILL LEAD THIS LIBERATING CRUSADE IF ENOUGH OF YOU WILL JOIN IT". HE ALSO SAID THE COUNTRY WAS FIGHTING TO SAFEGUARD ITS FREEDOM BUT IT MUST FIGHT FOR THE FREEDOM OF SOUTH VIETNAMESE LIVING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BORDER.

    VICE PRESIDENT KY PRESENTED RIFLES TO THE VOLUNTEERS AS A DEFENCE AGAINST ANY NEW ATTACK ON BIEN HOA SIMILAR TO THAT DURING THE LUNAR NEW YEAR.

    MEANWHILE IN SAIGON, THE GOVERNMENT CONTINUED TO SUPPLY RICE AND BUILDING MATERIALS TO FAMILIES WHOSE HOMES WERE DESTROYED IN THE OFFENSIVE. CIVIC AUTHORITIES ANNOUNCED A HALT IN PRIVATE CONSTRUCTION OF LUXURY BUILDINGS IN THE CAPITAL FOR ONE YEAR BECAUSE OF THE DEVASTATION CAUSED BY RECENT VIET CONG ATTACKS. BUILDING WILL BE CONFINED TO DWELLINGS FOR THE HOMELESS. FOOD PRICES HAVE RETURNED ALMOST TO THE LEVEL WERE BEFORE THE OFFENSIVE.
