    Background: THE GOVERNMENT OF SOUTH VIETNAM HAS CONSTRUCTED AN ATOMIC ENERGY CENTRE TO TRAIN TECHNICIANS AND SPECIALISTS IN THE FIELD OF SCIENCE.

    THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE CENTRE IN DALAT, NEAR AN ARMY TRAINING COLLEGE, WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY CONTRIBUTIONS FROM FRIENDLY NATIONS - THE UNITED STATES, BRITAIN AND FRANCE.

    PRIOR TO THE COMPLETION OF THE CENTRE, MANY SOUTH VIETNAMESE TECHNICIANS WERE SENT TO AUSTRALIA, CANADA AND JAPAN FOR ADVANCED TRAINING IN ATOMIC ENERGY.

    ON MARCH 30, FOREIGN AND HOME CORRESPONDENTS TOURED THE CENTRE AND RECEIVED A FIRST HAND BRIEFING ON RESEARCH PROCEDURE.

    LATER, THE DIRECTOR OF THE CENTRE SHOWED NEWSMEN HOW THE EQUIPMENT FUNCTIONED.
