Second trip to Vietnam and Rev. Thielman is first civilian aboard a
Phantom II in combat area. On his left, the aircraft's pilot.
Rev. Thielman is well-known to Montreat-
Anderson students. But, many of his outstanding
achievements go without recognition. Sunday,
a "Cavalier" interviewer talked with Rev.
Thielman about his summer trip to the Congo
for the President's Council on Youth
Opportunity. He laughingly said he was the
only unknown on the Council.
Rev. Thielman continued by disclosing that
60% of the Congo population is under 20.
He feels the gap between students and General
Mobutu could become dangerous. His
suggestion is that various youth groups such as
4-H and Future Farmer clubs be formed to
control youthful energies.
Another youth problem Thielman cites is
the strong Belgian resistance to accepting
American college or university degrees.
Besides giving the United States a bad name,
the Congo loses money when the American
trained Congolese students refuse to take
underpaying jobs, in his opinion, the three
Congolese universities need something like
football teams to draw them closer together
and break up tribalism. Regarding the football

idea, Thielman says television stations could
be created to give coverage. This, he thinks,
would also increase national unity.
Dr. Thielman, by the way, landed in Lagos
in the far from unified nation of Nigeria. He
stayed for a few hours and tried unsuccessfully
to get into Biafra.
Discussing the Biafran situation turned the
interview toward the Vietnam conflict.
Rev. Thielman is well-versed on this
subject, having been there a year ago. He
discovered the South Vietnamese appreciate
the American effort. After the 1968 presidentia
election, he believes that Hanoi will find a
continuation of present foreign policy.
And this, he feels, will cause the North
Vietnamese to come to the peace table next
Asked If President Johnson's decision not to
try for re-election stemmed from frustration
over the war In Viet Nam, Rev. Thielman
agreed that it did. The discussion continued ir
good spirits on a wide range of subjects and the
interview was concluded.
