    Background: Weapons captured from the Communists during the recent offensive in South Vietnam were put on display yesterday (Tuesday) in Saigon. The exhibition was opened by President Nguyen Van Thieu, as army spotter planes showered leaflets urging the population to oppose a ceasefire on what was called "Communist terms." Among the onlookers was the South Vietnamese Prime Minister, Tran Thien Khiem. Strict security precautions were in force when President Thieu toured the exhibition. Military policemen held back the crowds of reporters and cameramen anxious to get some word from the President of the latest peace developments. All he kept repeating war that peace depended on the communists. He hoped for peace quite soon.
