ABSTRACT
The article reports on the political and social situation in South Vietnam. There have been some indications of non-Communist nationalists strength that could prove to be helpful in establishing a truly representative government before a final showdown with North Vietnam. Vietnam is no longer a primary issue in the U.S. but continuing American aid is still essential for Saigon, while Russian and Chinese assistance is still important for Hanoi.
