halt the bombing of North Viet-

announcement on the prospect of
Others suggested that Washing-
ton should adopt a wait and see
The papers expressed their views
concerning a statement by Foreign
Minister Nguyen Duy Trinh of
North Vietnam that his country
"will hold talks" if the United
States stops bombing and other
hostile acts against the North.
"In our view," said the New
York Times, "the time clearly has
come for President Johnson to
make a move to open talks. A halt
in the bombing is the way to be-
The Boston Globe took the view
that on the face of it the Hanoi
statement "is only the latest in a
long list of peace feelers that have
come to nought, so it is hard to
be optimistic," but added:
"Such an attitude would be
more warranted if Hanoi's since-
rity were tested immediately by
stopping the bombing of North
The New York Post declared that
if the Communists advanced the
proposal as a propaganda device-
confident that it would evoke no
warm response in Washington-

The Chicago Sun Times, in its
first front page editorial since
1952, urged its readers to bombard
the White House with letters and
telegrams urging a halt in the

means of persuading Ho Chi Minh

United States will go more than

The Nashville Tennessean com-
"Hanoi is up to something, and
it isn't clear whether it is soften-
ing its hard line position of old
or merely wants to put a little
psychological pressure on Wash-
ington. . . .
"So many previous bubbles have
burst, the best attitude is the one
prescribed by the Laotians: to
wait and see."
The Cleveland Press reacted
"We expect to get from Secre-
tary of State Dean Rusk in time
an honest report on the signifi-
cance of the Hanoi statement and
not the kind of 'it's nothing seri-
ous' brush off President Thieu in
Saigon gave instantly.
"But let's not get our hopes up
The Washington Post said: "If
leaders of North Vietnam are real-
ly serious about negotiations they
ought to be willing to discuss in
advance, through intermediaries if,
need be, what sort of settlement
they would envisage, or at least
what questions they would con-
sider 'relevant.' And so should we."
Congress To Study
Soldier Burial Costs
WASHINGTON (P)-A congres-
sional committee will inquire next
month into reports that many
American families must bear part
of the funeral costs for members
killed in action in Vietnam.
Chairman Olin E. Teague (D-
Tex.) of the House Veterans' Af-
fairs Committee said yesterday
his investigation might lead also
to new restrictions on burial in
national cemeteries "which are
filling up so fast that the problem
has become critical."
An Associated Press survey this
week showed that frequent allow-
ances fall short of the actual cost
to the families of service men.
Some families reported paying as
much as $700 over the allowance.
Some funeral directors inter-
viewed in the 10 state cost sam-

pling said they could keep funeral
costs within allowance limits but
that the combined costs of both
funeral and burial often exceed the
Some funeral directors said they
sometimes take financial losses in
an attempt to keep their fees with-
in the allowances.
Tom Johnson, a Junction City,
Kan., funeral official said he
"wouldn't want to profit on fun-
erals for these servicemen."
A District of Columbia funeral
home official said he couldn't pos-
sibly stay within the. limits unless
he gave a serviceman "a pauper's
"This is one of the first things
we intend to look into," Teague
said. "For years the responsibility
for these allowances has been
scattered all over Washington.
It's time to do something about
The allowances are set by mili-
tary regulation on the basis of
average nationwide costs for es-
sential funeral and burial services.
Military sources said. They added
the allowances are intended to
"assist in defraying' funeral and

The project, part of Presidents
Johnson's push to get private in-
dustry to help solve the poverty
problem, is the first that requirest
the companies to guarantee jobst
at the end of the 15 month train-K
"The problem is to get these1
people placed" in jobs after train-j
ing, a Labor Department spokes-
man said. Previous Manpower Ad-.
ministration training projects
have not included a job guarantee.
The Manpower Administration
is still awaiting replies to invita-
tions to the 300 firms in five cities
to take part in the new experi-
The cities are Boston, Chicago,
San Antonio, Los Angeles and
Start Next Summer
A Labor Department spokesman
said the training projects will get
under way by early next summer
and that the government will
check up over a period of 18
months to see that the companies
live up to their pledge to hire the
"What we are saying to those
companies, in effect, is 'You tell us
what it costs you, we'll give you
the money to do it, and then hire
the trainees," the spokesman said.
The estimated cost is $3,000 to
$3,500 to train each person.
The government will keep hands
off the training program except
for later check of payrolls to see
how many of the trainees got jobs.
The spokesman said the project
will be the first experiment with
one of two main theories for train-
ing poor, uneducated and unem-
ployed ghetto resident, mostly Ne-
groes and other minority group
One theory, with which the gov-
ernment is already experimenting,
is to let professional educators and
training firms bring poverty vic-
tims up to employability, and then
try to find jobs for them.
The other theory, applied in the
new program, is to persuade in-
dustry to get involved in both
training and hiring.
While industry proved during
the severe labor shortages in
World War II that it could train
"the completely unemployable" for
many jobs, the technique has not
been used in recent years, the
Labor Department spokesman said.
The letters of invitation to the
firms went out last week and it
is too early to tell what the re-
sponse will be, the spokesman said.

which the Project is interestedsare:
Biological effects of radiation, Radia-

related to controlled fusion, Radiation

attitudes toward nuclear energy haz-
ards, Evaluation of hazards to urban
populations from nuclear activities,
and Economic studies of nuclear ac-
tivities including power production.
New research ideas and pilot projects
are particularlyencouraged. The rela-

energy, however, must be clear. The

Requests for grants of $3,000 or less
are most appropriate. Grants may
