The new U.S. postal rates do go into effect today, but most people won't have to resort to taping
a penny on their envelopes along with their old, unused five-cent stamps. The new six-cent stamps
and one-centers to go with the old five-centers should be available in the post offices beginning to-

from eight to ten cents per ounce.

Associated Press News Analysis
WASHINGTON (P) -President
Johnson's decision about halting
the bombing of North Vietnam will
turn mainly on his judgment as
to whether this would start pro-
ductive talks on a peaceful settle-
ment of the war.
This shaped up as the central
question yesterday amid secret U.S.
diplomatic inquiries into the
meaning of Hanoi's new line about
entering into negotiations.
Pressures on Johnson to stop the
air raids have been mounting, both
domestically and abroad, since
North Vietnam began saying last
week that it will engage in talks
if the bombing and other acts of
war are halted unconditionally.
Earlier Hanoi had been saying
sucha halt could lead to negotia-
But Johnson's senior military
and diplomatic advisers have cau-
tioned against moving into a ne-
gotiating situation in which North
Vietnam would get a free exemp-
tion from air attack without giv-
ing up anything in return.
So through secret diplomatic
channels, U.S. strategists are try-
ing to find out whether Hanoi
intends a real peace feeler or just
a propaganda ploy to cancel the
Administration sources say the
president will make his decision
on the basis of what he deems to
be the U.S. national interest, re-
gardless of public or diplomatic
pressures. And they said his basic
yardstick will be what they term
his rock-bottom offer in his San
Antonio speech last Sept. 29.
Johnson's San Antonio formula
put forward three conditions for
stopping U.S. air and naval attacks
on North Vietnam:
They would be halted when this
would lead promptly to discussions,
when the discussions would be pro-
ductive and when the United
States could assume that Hanoi
would not take advantage of the
bombing limitation to reinforce
and re-supply its troop during
The first point is comparatively
technical. The timing of the open-
ing of talks could be simultaneous
with a stop in the bombing, or
negotiations could begin within an
agreed period after the air attacks
The third point has been kept
deliberately vague to allow U.S.
Washington wants something in
return for a bombing halt, but its
publicly expressed formula could
be met through private assurances
from North Vietnam or by an ac-
tual holddown of Communist mil-
itary operations or some other
demonstration which U.S. author-
ities consider acceptable.
North Vietnam hitherto has
shown no interest in negotiating
with the United States on any
topis except the departure of U.S.
forces from Vietnam. And it has
called for recognition of the Com-
munist National Liberation Front
as the government representing
If peace talks do come about
both Hanoi and Washington are
likely to encounter difficulty in
reconciling any settlement with
past public positions.
This is one reason for the se-
crecy which has surrounded the
current U.S. diplomatic probe. And
as yet, informed sources said,
there has been no response from

Town on a white person has given
the liberalistic press in America,
Britain and elsewhere the oppor-
tunity of sowing hatred and sus-
picion against the republic."
The columnist "Dawie" ,in the
Cape Town Afrikaans newspaper
Die Burger declared yesterday
that reaction overseas was due to
ignorance or malice.
"How little these people know
about us ... why do they say so
much about the fact that a col-
ored man's heart was transplant-
ed into a white man while the
transplanting of a black man's
kidney into a white woman-here
in Cape Town - caused so little
The English language press,
which tends to oppose official
apartheid segregation policies,
took a different view.
"That the second heart trans-
plant operation at Groote Schuur
Hospital should have evoked
pointed allusions toour race poli-
cies in the overseas press is not
difficult to understand," said
Johannesburg's Rand Daily Mail.
The Star of Johannesburg Paid:
"This is perhaps what the world
finds so difficult to understand-
that in spite of our crazy rigidi-
ties, of our race imbecilities, of
our seemingly endless lack of
compassion, there is still suffi-
cient flexibility, sufficient hu-
manity left to meet the periodic
challenge when it comes."
