Disarmament and the Middle
East crisis were the major topics
discussed by Rusk and Gromyko,
who met for more than three
hours Tuesday night. U.S. sources
said Vietnam was not discussed
because the deep U.S.-Soviet dif-
ferences on this topic had been
amply aired in previous talus.
While Rusk told newsmen "I
cannot report there was a great
deal of progress" on the Middle
East issue, other American sources
Both big powers have long rec-
ognized Israel's existence as a
state, in contrast to the Arab view.
The Kremlin may therefore agree
that there should be a state of
peace rather than war between
the Arabs and Israelis.
But Kosygin and Gromko stood
fast on Soviet demands for with-
drawal of Israeli forces to pre-
war boundaries before a settle-
ment can be negotiated. Since the
United States favors linking a
withdrawal with a settlement, the
main argument is over the seq-
uence of moves toward a solution.
Recent hints of a softening of
the Arab stand against any ne-
gotiations before an Israeli troop
pullback are, in the U.S. view, im-
proving chances for a settlement.
On the nonproliferation treaty,
both of the nuclear superpowers
have long pursued parallel policies
against giving nuclear weapons to
nations that don't have them.
The difficulty over the inspec-
tion provision is less between the
Soviet Union and the United
States than between the West-
ern European powers and the So-
viets, the U.S. sources said.

meeting with Soviet Priemier Alexi Kosygin in Gllassboro, NJ. After Rusk spoke to the committee
in a closed session, Fulbright said the Vietnam was was "poisoning" U.S.-Soviet relations.

WASHINGTON (R)-Sen. Stuart
Symington (D-Mo.) demanded
yesterday a full-dress investiga-
tion of U.S. bombing in North
Vietnam. He contended its effec-
tiveness has been falsely criticized.
The former secretary of the Air
Force told the Senate that "un-
truthful and dangerous reports"
are being circulated in an effort
"to further denigrate the effec-
tiveness of air power."
As Symington spoke, Sen. John
Stennis (D-Miss.), chairman of
the Senate watchdog defense sub-
committee, announced that such
an inquiry already is underway.
Stennis said he had sent two of
his investigators to Vietnam ear-
lier to conduct a searching in-
Symington objected to publish-
ed reports that bombing in North
Vietnam had been ineffective and
that meaningful military targets
now are lacking.
"Something peculiar is cur-
rently going on," Symington told
the Senate, as he said that these
reports did not "coincide'with tes-
timony given in executive session"
to the Senate Armed Services
Committee "by military people
who are doing and have been do-
ing the actual fighting."
Terming reports critical of the
bombing untrue, Symington said
that if they were accurate "then
we are losing unnecessarily scores
of multimillion-dollar airplanes,
and killing unnecessarily hun-
dreds of our finest Americans."
Symington said the military
chiefs of staff "know there are
many lucrative military targets
remaining in North Vietnam
which have never been touched"
while other targets damaged once
have not beenrhit a second tmie.
When bombing was halted dur-
ing the lunar new year holiday,
Symington said the e n e m y
brought in heavy equipment which
has been killing Americans.
"We have lost hundreds, if not
thousands of young Americans
because of this continuing and
inaccurate attack on airpower and
seapower," he added.
Symington said the Senate in-
quiry should provide "all the truth
in this matter which will not help
a possible enemy.

Witnesses said three casualties

The shooting broke up the mob
but it soon returned. The demon-
strators were met by army and
navy troops who barricaded the
embassy entrance. The mob re-
treated when they found they

owned shop and house in Rangoon
on Tuesday.More than 100 cas-

Red China filed a protest with
Burma yesterday charging that
the mobs in Rangoon carried out
outrages in beating up Chinese.
According to the New China
News Agency in Peking the Chi-
nese government protest note
said "Burmese ruffians" assaulted
the Chinese Embassy in Burma
and its residential quarters Tues-
"What is even more intolerable
is that the ruffians went so far as
to insult the great leader of the
Chinese people, Chairman Mao
Tse-tung, and carried off the na-
tional emblem of the People's Re-
public of China."
The note sent to the Burmese
government charged these anti-
Chinese incidents were "wholly
and deliberately engineered by the
Burmese government," as indi-
cated by what it called "all recent
The note demanded that the
Burmese government take emer-
gency measures to prevent further
agravation of the situation. It
added, "The Chinese government
reserves the right to demand
compensation from the Burmese
government for all the losses."

WASHINGTON (-)-The House,
after three days of sharp debate,
voted yesterday to slash about
$200 million from the $5 billion
authorization request to carry on
the nation's space program for the
next 12 months.
In the process, members voted
to set up a 16-member independ-
ent aerospace safety advisory panel
aimed at making accidents such
as the fatal Apollo fire tragedy
less likely to happen.
In its final version, the House
approved a $4,791,182,000 measure
to carry on activities of the Na-
tional Aeronautics and Space Ad-
ministration'ufordthe year begin-
ning next Saturday.
Senate Bill High
This compares with a $4,851,006,
000 bill approved by voice vote in
the Senate earlier in the day and
the $5.1 billion the administration
asked for NASA's activities in the
next fiscal year.
A tonference committee will try
to iron out the money and other
differences between the Senate
and House bills.
The Senate defeated efforts by
Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis),
to slash the total first by about
$317 million and then by some
Also defeated in the Senate was
an effort by Sen. Charles Percy
(R-Ill), a freshman Senate Space
Committee member, to direct
NASA officials to keep Congress
better informed of their problems
and programs. He said an infor-
mation gap revealed by the Apollo
fire needs to be closed.
Final House passage on a 342-53
roll call vote came after the House
adopted, 238 to 157, a move by
Rep. James G. Fulton (R-Pa), to
trim about $136 million from vari-
ous parts of the vast program.
The House, earlier during yes-
terday's prolonged debate, ap-
proved a $65-million reduction in
the post-Apollo applications pro-
gram which is designed to carry
on space activities after the man-
More than half the new funds
would be authorized to the effort
to land a man on the moon and
return him safely.
This measure sets spending ceil-
ings so actual funds must be pro-
vided later in separate legislation.
Fulton's proposal also put into
the measure the safety advisory
panel, which the House at an ear-
lier stage had rejected by a non-
record teller vote of 106 to 101.
The Senate version of the bill con-
tains no such language.
Upset by Fire
Originally it was proposed in the
House by Rep. Donald Rumsfeld
(R-11), who said the January
Apollo fire which killed three as-
tronauts 'should have taught this
country the need for an independ-
ent safety review board."
Rumsfeld said there is no way
to prevent all accidents but he
contended adequate safety pre-
cautions were not observed in con-
nection with the Apolo tragedy.
"This is an outgrowth of the
Apollo accident," argued Rep.
John W. Wydler (R-NY). "It is'
designed to make such accidents
less likely in the future."
