    Background: THE GOVERNMENT OF SOUTH VIETNAM IS CONTINUING ITS CAMPAIGN FOR THE MILITARY TRAINING OF ALL WOMEN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18 AND 45. THE LATEST GROUP TO FINISH TRAINING -- YOUNG WOMEN WHO HAD DONE A COURSE INCLUDING DRILLING, WEAPONS INSTRUCTION AND JUDO -- PARADED N THE CENTRE OF SAIGON AT THE WEEKEND.

    THEY WERE REVIEWED BY MADAME NGO DINH NHU, THE SISTER-I-LAW OF PRESIDENT NGO DINH DIEM, AND AFTERWARDS DEMONSTRATED THEIR SKILL IN JUDO. AT LEAST ONE OF THEIR MALE OPPONENTS GOT THE WORST OF THE CONTEST: HE WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL ON A STRETCHER.

    FROM THE SAIGON TRAINING CENTRE, THE WOMEN ARE SENT OUT TO ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY TO HELP TRAIN OTHER WOMEN IN THE SO-CALLED "STRATEGIC VILLAGES" -- ANOTHER GOVERNMENT MEASURE IN ITS LONG FIGHT AGAINST THE VIETCONG. LAST MONTH, THE GOVERNMENT STARTED A NEW TACTIC -- "BOMBING" VIETCONG CENTRES IN THE JUNGLE WITH LEAFLETS URGING THEM TO SURRENDER WITHOUT BEING HARMED.
