CEASE-FIRE IN SOUTH
Allied sources reveal bomb halt proposal

An Open

Letter

MA YOR LIND SA Y
Dear Mr Mayor:
We're sorry you've had to cancel your visit. By the way, the last time you campaigned for an
Ann Arbor political, candidate was 1964. 'Remember? Your candidate was Republican Congressman
George. Meader, of whom you said:
"He is a courageous, fair minded legislator to whom the whole House of Representatives
looks for advice and guidance. Michigan's Second District is exceptionally well served." (Ann Ar-
bor News, August 29, 1964)
Remember George Meader, whom you urged on us in 1964? He voted:
against the 1964 Civil Rights Act;
against low-cost housing .programs;
againstiFederbl aid to education;
against practically everything you stand for.
That's why, despite our respect for you, Mayor Lindsay, we have to take your endorsements of
Republican political candidates with more than a grain of salt!
Because, party loyalty aside, Mr. Mayor, the Congressional candidate you should be endors-
ing, here in Ann Arbor, is the man who defeated George Meader in 1964 and who was your col-
league in the 89th Congress:y

PARIS ()P) - Allied sources re-
ported last night that a secret
plan of Washington for peace in
Vietnam begins with a bomb halt
in North Vietnam and leads to a
cease-fire in the South. The two-
stage plan would hinge on Hanoi's
help, they said.
Informants representing more
than one country outlined ele-
ments of proposals they said have,
been submitted to North Vietnam
and to America's fighting allies-
Australia, New tealand, the Phili-

ppines, South Korea, Thailand and
South Vietnam.
Neither American nor North
Vietnamese delegates to the Paris
peace talks would comment on the
sources' accounts. The Americans
have never officially acknowledged
the existence of such proposals.
As the informants explained it,
the hoped-for first stage would
bring withdrawal of North Viet-
namese forces from the so-called
demilitarized zone and reduction
of pressure against cities in the
South. Whether those two moves

already have begun is a moot I
point.
Once President Johnson was
sure of an enemy stand-down he,
would feel justified in ordering an
end to the,. bombing, the allied
sources said.
The sources continued:
In the second stage, the peace-
making process in Paris would be
broadened. Current U.S.-North,
Vietnamese talks would go on to
settle political and other issues
between Washington and Hanoi.
Separate negotiationsl would con-
sider a cease-fire and eventual
withdrawal of foreign troopsfrom
South Vietnam.
The new negotiations would be
betweenmilitary representatives of
the parties considered by the
United States to be involved - a
single delegation of North Vietna-
mese and Viet Cong envoys and
one of the Americans and the
Saigon government with advisors
from the fighting allies.,
But Hanoi has never acknowl-
edged that its forces are engaged
in the South and claims it is not a
party to the war there. The North.
Vietnamese might turn their backs'
on the negotiations, leaving Wash-
ington and Saigon to sort things
out. with the Viet Cong.
President Nguyen Van Thleu of.r
South Vietnam wants to negotiate
with Hanoi, not with the Viet
Cong. Saigon's view is that any
settlement with the Viet Cong
would leave North Vietnam free
to ignore it and would give the
Viet Cong a status to which they
are not entitled politically or,
morally.
. Some sources saidran allied po-
litical effort is under way to em-
phasize North Vietnam's involve-

ment in the Southern fighting.
That, they suggested, is behind the
release of war prisoners by U.S.
and Saigon authorities.
The Americans freed 14 North *
Vietnamese seamen earlier this
week. The South Vietnamese an-
nounced 140 captives would be
freed within days. Both moves
were portrayed as acts of good
will.
Cuba: 'Free
Puerto Rico!
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (Rt -,
In a._hall cleared of spectators to
forestall possible anti - Castro
demonstrations, Cuba told the
125-nation O e n e r a 1 Assembly
Wednesday that the United States
seeks to block independence for
Puerto Rico.
The Cuban ambassador to the
United Nations, Ricardo Alarcon
Quesada, said the United States
has. imposed "colonlial :servitude"
on the Caribbean island for 70
years. He added that Cubans
would support Puerto Ricans in
what he described as a struggle
for protection of their rights and
claims to independence.
In past elections, the Puerto
Rican people have rejected alter-
natives such as independence and
U.S. statehood and opted to con-
tinue their status as a common-
wealth associated with the United
States.
Recently, however, observers
have seen strength gathering in
favor of statehood.
