WASHINGTON (R) - The United States issued a new
warning yesterday that "serious talks" could not be conducted
with North Vietnam if the demilitarized zone dividing North
and South Vietnam were violated by North Vietnamese at-
tacks from the zone on allied forces.
A statement, authorized by Undersecretary of State Ni-
cholas -Katzenbach and cleared at the highest White House
level, emphasized "the serious view we take of the verified
instances since Nov. 9 in which North Vietnamese forces fired
on allied forces south of the DMZ from positions within the
