Chuong Says Cut
In Aid Spurred
S. Viet Nam Coup
FRESNO, Calif. (UPI) - Dr
Tram Van Chuong, father of
Couth Viet Nam's Mme. Ngo
Dinh Nhu, said Monday he did
not feel the United States
played a direct part in the mil
itary coup that ousted President
Ngo Dinh Diem.
But, Chuong admitted,' the
fact the United States cut eco
nomic aid in South Viet Nam
may have encouraged those
who staged the coup.,.
Chuong resigned last' summer
as South Viet. Nam's ambassa
dor to the United States in pro-!
test over the alleged repressive
policies of the Diem govern
ment against his country's Bud
dhist population. He drew a
parallel oh the effect his resig
nation and the severing of eco
nomic aid by the United States
had on the overthrow of Diem.
"The removal of foreign aid
may have had some effect, just
as my resignation was a real
blow," Chuong said. "But sim
ilarly, my resignation does not
mean that I had any part in
the coup."
Chuong criticized the United
States for not taking a more
practical approach to the dis
tribution of foreign aid.
"The American approach is
too generous," he said. "Maybe
you are not aggressive enough
. . . you (should) . . . use for
eign aid as a weapon of war."
Chuong, who is on a speak
ing tour through California, sug
gested that the Diem govern
ment collapsed because it was
"blind to realities."
Noting that he had suggested
changes in the government's
policies, Chuong said, "when
you are in power, you are Iso
lated from the rest of the world.
You are surrounded by advisers
and flatterers who tell you only
what they want you to know
and ydu are not able to see the

Indiana Blast
Blamed On Gas
vestigators said Monday night
propane gas probably caused
the Halloween coliseum explo
sion that killed 68 persons but
they said they do not know
what ignited it.
"Nothing we heard has made
us change our mind that a pro
pane gas explosion," probably
in the commissary, rocked the
coliseum, Bernard Sweeney,
chief investigator for the In
diana state fire marshal's, of
fice, said after Monday's 10
hour hearing.
But he said it was an explo
sion "from factors unknown."
' Sweeney said there was "no
definite ; evidence" that indi
cated a rupture or leak in any
of the five liquid petroleum gas
tanks which were impounded
from the tons of debris inside
the coliseum. ,
The five tanks were to bo
sent to Purdue University to
day for examination. Sweeney
said "perfunctory" examination
failed to show signs of defect.
Sweeney said "several witnes
ses" told of seeing what "ma
tured into an explosion" last
Thursday night, while a crowd
of 4,600 persons was watching
the finale of the "Holiday on
Ice" show.
He said the witnesses used
such words as "vapor," "fog,"
and "steam" to describe the
circumstances. But he said
there was no indication that
anyone was touching the. tank
when the vapor or fog was first
seen, and the tank was upright.
The last witness, Cecil Lonas,
Indianapolis, a part-time em
ploye at the Coliseum, told re
porters after the hearing that
he saw smoke coming from the
tank. Lonas said all he knew
was that "Shorty" (Wilbur
Gaithcr) said something about
gas, and they ran out.
The men were working in the
commissary, a pit area unaer
the stands where the food is
prepared for the vendors.

vested corn in the street last
Wednesday. It was covered with
huge sheets of plastic to pre
vent spoilage.
But the sight of grain piled
high in the streets of Midwest
ern terminal cities was not un
common today.
An estimated 19.85 million
bushels of milo was stored in
the open during the past week
in the Midwest. Officials feared
the loss from spoilage might
run as high as $40 million.
Elevators were full or filling
rapidly throughout Missouri
Grain movement in , the slat
was practica'ty at a standstill.
The milo harvested in Ncbras
ka, Iowa and the Dakotas forced
the movement of scarce box
cars into those areas.
'We usually have a shortage
of cars," said George Ross, Mis
souri Farmers Association traf
fic manager. "But it's much
worse this year.
Spokesmen for several rail
roads agreed.
"Worst Than Ever"
A Rock Island official said the
shortage was "worse than
Eldr;. Martin, general counsel
for Burlington Railroad, said
that at the end of October, Bur
lington had only 493 empty box
cars and needed 2,225.
'It's the worst shortage I've
ever seen and I've boen in the
business for 35 years," Martini
Other railroad officials said
the shortage could become oven
worse if the wheat sale to the
Soviet Union is completed.
The railroads ha"e estimated
that 100,000 boxcars would be
needed to transport grain sold
to Russia from storage areas in
the Midwest to shipping ports.
The boxcar shortago has been
attributed to many causes other
than the bumper grain harvest
this year.
The Association of American
Railroads said part of the short
age arises from the faot that
there aro 106,542 fowcr boxcars
in use this year than in 1958
Association figures also show
that while 20,821 boxcars were
placed in service during the
first three quarters of this year.
23,882 wero scrapped.
Much Needs Repair
In addition, 8 per cent of the
nation's boxcar fleet is in need
of repair, the largest percentage
since World War II
age is that railroad companies
can rent boxcars from other
companies cheaper than build
ing their own. A single boxcar
costs more than $12,000 to
build. A company can rent the
car for $2.88 per day.
The company using the car
will receive an estimated $15
per day in revenues. As a re
sult, the association said, many
rail companies have lost the in
centive to build new boxcars.
Yet conditions appear to be
improving, the association said.
The Interstate Commerce
Commission issued an order
Oct. 18 requiring the return of
all 40-foot and 50-foot boxcars
belonging to Midwestern rail
roads but being used in the
