Nguyen Hy Van, chairman of the Voluntary Youth Association (VYA)--a Vietnamese Peace Corps--and Lucien Pye, professor of Economics at M.L.T., will speak at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the Quincy Junior Common Room.
The speeches, sponsored by the Harvard-Radcliffe Liberal Union, will present a plan for urban-rural cooperation in South Vietnam. The VYA, like its American counterpart, places special emphasis on direct personal contact. Its plan involves the transfer of skilled labor to rural areas in order to equalize the rural and urban standards of living.
Nyugen came to the United States to recruit private funds for the expansion of the program.
Pye has written a number of books on Southeast Asia.
