Talks on Pueblo Crisis

By The Associated Press
Security Council has moved into
a weekend of intensive private
talks on the seizure of the USS
Pueblo, after hearing an Ethiop-
ian suggestion that North Korea
be invited to tell her side of the

range for an intermediary to "ex-
ercise good offices" between the
United States and North Korea.
