  • Description

    SAIGON ON SUNDAY (AUG 31) WAS THE SCENE OF A BIG RALLY DEMONSTRATING SUPPORT FOR PRESIDENT NGO DINH DIEM AND HIS POLICIES. OBSERVERS SAY THE MEETING WAS ONE OF SEVERAL PLANNED TO SHOW POPULAR SUPPORT FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE BUDDHISTS' CAMPAIGN AGAINST ALLEGED RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION.

    MANY OF THE CROWD WERE MEMBERS OF THE REPUBLICAN YOUTH ORGANISATION. THIS MOVEMENT -- HEADED BY THE PRESIDENT'S POWERFUL BROTHER, MR. NGO DINH NHU -- IS ONE WHICH ALL YOUNG GOVERNMENT WORKERS HAVE TO JOIN.

    FOREIGN CORRESPONDENTS, STILL OPERATING UNDER A RIGOROUS PRESS CENSORSHIP IMPOSED WITH MARTIAL LAW, HAD BEEN TOLD BY THE SAIGON MILITARY GOVERNOR TO EXPECT WHAT HE CALLED A "SPONTANEOUS DEMONSTRATION."
