     "United States officials were surprised and heartened today at the 
size of turnout in South Vietnam's presidential election despite a Vietcong 
terrorist campaign to disrupt the voting. According to reports from Saigon, 
83 percent of the 5.85 million registered voters cast their
ballots yesterday. Many of them risked reprisals threatened by the 
Vietcong. A successful election has long been seen as the keystone in 
President Johnson's policy of encouraging the growth of constitutional 
processes in South Vietnam."

  - Peter Grose, in a page 2 New York Times article titled, "U.S. 
Encouraged by Vietnam Vote," September 4, 1967.
