A Chinese Com- munist manufactured 75-mm. recoilless rifle was captured from the Viet Cong.east of Hue, but reports of the discovery of a large weapons cache have not been confirmed by US officials in South Vietnam. The Communist clandestine Liberation Radio has appealed to "our armed forces and people to seize this favorable opportunity to strive to kill more enemy troops, attack the enemy more often, and maintain pressure on him." The broadcast warned, however, against overconfidence after victories and against un- derestimating the enemy. It stressed that along with military activities by various "concentrated units," guerrilla activity must be expanded to consolidate political control of rural areas and overthrow the "pup- pet administration." Political Developments in South Vietnam: No change in the status of the cabinet occurred yesterday. The Catholics maintained pressure on the government by sending another delegation to Chief of State Suu to demand Premier Quat's resignation. While the Catholic campaign continues restrained, speakers at an anti- government rally in Saigon Sunday evening reportedly called for recruits for a Catholic "security force." This is the first open suggestion that--as Buddhist circles recently charged--they may be trying to create a paramilitary following.

One youth was killed and another seriously wounded. The incident may add to current political tension by arousing the sensitivities of the Vietnamese, particularly the Catholics who have begun to complain of US support for a government which they allege is oppressing them. 25X1 V 8 Approved For June 6 5 Release 2005/05/17 : CIA-3 RDP79T00975A0083003 0001-4 25X1 25X1 Approved For Release 2005/05/17 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO08300320001-4 Next 1 Page(s) In Document Exempt Approved For Release 2005/05/17 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO08300320001-4 i~i~i~i~i 25X1 Approved For Release 2005/05/17 CIA-RDP79T00975A008300 20001-4 j 25X1 *Argentina: US Consul Temple Wanamake.r was seriously wounded_by, a burst of machine-gun fire yesterday afternoon in Cordoba--about 500 miles northwest of Buenos Aires.

In re- sponse to a US Embassy officer's comments, he warned against trying to use foreign assets control regulations to bar such sales, saying that Chile would obviously not let a US regulation prevent sales con- sidered in Chile's national interest. In the opinion of the official, some leaders of the governing Christian Democratic Party would welcome closer ties with the Chinese as showing increasing economic independence of the US. 25X1 Brazil: The government is taking steps to pre- vent some of its opponents, including supporters of ex-president Goulart, from running in the gubernatorial elections scheduled for October in 11 of Brazil's 22 states. To accomplish this it will seek early legisla- tion under a recent constitutional amendment govern- ing eligibility of candidates. The new laws will tend to eliminate potential candidates who would be most inclined to make campaign issues of the growing public dissatisfaction with the regime's economic policies which are blamed for Brazil's current recession and persistent,inflation-F_ 25X1 8 June 65 Approved For ?elease 2005/05/17 CIA-RDP79T00975A0083003 0001-4 25X1% 25X1 Approved For Release 2005/05/17 : CIA-RDP79T00975AQQ830 THE PRESIDENT The Vice President Executive Offices of the White House Special Counsel to the President The Special Assistant for National Security Affairs The Scientific Adviser to the President The Director of the Budget The Department of State The Secretary of State The Under Secretary of State The Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs The Deputy Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs The Counselor and Chairman of the Policy Planning Council The Director of Intelligence and Research The Treasury Department The Secretary of the Treasury The Under Secretary of the Treasury The Department of Defense The Secretary of Defense The Deputy Secretary of Defense The Secretary of the Army The Secretary of the Navy The Secretary of the Air Force The Assistant Secretary of Defense (International Security Affairs) The Assistant Secretary of Defense The Chairman, The Joint Chiefs of Staff Chief of Naval Operations, United States Navy Chief of Staff, United States Air Force Chief of Staff, United States Army Commandant, United States Marine Corps U.S. Rep., Military Committee and Standing Group, NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Europe Commander in Chief, Pacific Commander in Chief, Atlantic The Director, Defense Intelligence Agency The Director, The Joint Staff The Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Department of Army The Director of Naval Intelligence, Department of Navy The Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence, Department of the Air Force The Department of Justice The Attorney General The Federal Bureau of Investigation The Director National Aeronautics and Space Administration The Administrator The Atomic Energy Commission The Chairman The National Security Agency The Director The United States Information Agency The Director The National Indications Center The Director Approved For FFefease 25X1 Approved elea ffjp95 t f4P79TOO AO08300320001-4 Approved For Releaseop/OO'EGH P79TOO975AO08300320001-4
