(Studio) South Vietnam President Thieu assumes broad powers of search and arrest.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Quang Nam, South Vietnam) National police conduct house to house searches to find mbrs. V.C. infrastructure. Police force becomes more politically oriented and militarily trained. Actions taken against suspected Communist sympathizers are harsh. [Opposition leader, Senator Tran Quang THUAN - says many innocent people are jailed. Some are charged to extract bribes from their families.] Many Catholic, leftist students are disappearing. Some charge Thieu is using police not only to root out V.C., but to silence opposition.
