A BRITISH OFFICIAL flew to Lagos yesterday to discuss
possible moves toward peace in the Biafran war.
Britain's minister in charge of African affairs will also discuss
relief for civilian victims of the fighting.
The last contact between senior British and Nigerian officials
was in March when Prime Minister Harold Wilson went to Lagos in
an unsuccesful attempt to bring the two warring sides together in
ARTHUR GOLDBERG, former Supreme Court justice, pro-
posed yesterday that President Nixon name a blue ribbon panel
to probe U.S. conduct in the Vietnam War.
He and a group of jurists suggested that such figures as former
Chief Justice Earl Warren, Gen. Matthew Ridgway and Elbert
Tuttle were men of "unquestionable impartiality" suitable to serve
The key issue, sponsors of the investigative proposal said, "should
be to determine whether the war is being conducted in accordance
with international and national laws regarding humanitarian treat-
ment of civilians."
GEORGE ROMNEY, Secretary of Housing, has announced he
will free $340 million in special urban renewal money that has
been under a controversial seven-month freeze.
Romney said 35 cities already participating in the Neighborhood
Development Program will receive $175 in the current fiscal year,
The NDP is a special program providing renewal funds on a!
yearly rather than long-term basis. Cities that convert their long-
term renewal fund commitment into short-range NDP money will
receive an estimated $30 to $40 million, the secretary said.
The NDP program was frozen by the Nixon administration April
30 because demand threatened to go far beyond the renewal money
supply. Guidelines for its use have now been agreed on.
U.S. RED CHINESE diplomatic talks may be reopened after
a lapse of over 22 months.
Reportedly, the Nixon Administration proposed the reconvening
through its Ambassador to Warsaw Walter Stoessel. Stoessel spoke
briefly with a Chinese Communist diplomat after attending a Yugo-
slav fashion show in Poland's Palace of Culture.
He presented the Chinese diplomat with an informal message
stating that the United States is ready to resume the talks as soon as1
the Chinese are willing to do so. State Department press officers'said
only "they had a few words.'"'
Ambassadorial talks between Washington and Peking started in
Geneva in 1955, switching to Warsaw in 1958. The last meeting was
held there in January 1968.
CLEMENT IIAYNSWORTH, JR. will continue to serve as
chief judge of the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, President
Nixon announced yesterday.
Nixon said he told the judge about his philosophy that an indi-
vidual cannot expect to avoid defeat but must accept it without fear.
"The judge has suffered a defeat, but he is without fear," said Nixon.
On Nov. 21 the Senate voted 55 to 45 to reject Nixon's nomina-
tion of Haynsworth for associate justice of the Supreme Court.
"No one likes to lose," said Haynsworth, "I don't. But I never
have felt that a setback should be accepted as a final defeat of a
man as a judge."
PRESIDENT NIXON says he will call Congress back into
session Dec. 26 if it does not complete action before Christmas
on all appropriation bills.
And House GOP Leader Gerald R. Ford adds that the President
may also call Congress back the 26th if there is no "movement" be-4
forehand on his anticrime legislation. f
The need for anticrime legislation was a major theme of Nixon's
presidential campaign but none of his recommendations have gottenc
very far in Congress.
Ford expects Congress to adjourn sometime between the 20th
and 24th for the Christmas holiday.

SAIGON M---American battlefield casualties have passed
the 300,000 mark, the U.S. Command announced yesterday.
Since Jan. 1, 1961, casualties have totalled 300,829.
In nearly nine years of fighting, 39,642 men have been
killed in action, 259,828 have been wounded, and 1,359 have
been missing or captured.
The U.S. Command said that 70 Americans were killed in
Vietnam last week out of 1,049 casualties. U.S. headquarters
said the death toll was the lowest in two months and 46 per
cent less than the previous week's 130 dead.
South Vietnamese totals were also down last week, with
the government reporting 373,of its soldiers killed and 953
The allied commands claimed
2,177 Viet Cong and North Viet-
namese were killed last week,
compared with 3,220 the week be-
fore. This brought the reported
Viet Cong-North Vietnamese
death toll since Jan. 1, 1961 to
Explaining the reduction in bat-
tlefield deaths, the South V i e t-
namese military command said
Viet Cong and North Vietnamese
activity was at its "lowest 1 e v e 1
since the beginning of the Com-
munist winter-spring campaign" a
Meanwhile, the U.S. Command
announced that American planes
attacked North Vietnamese forces
in Cambodia for the second
straight day. About 500 North
Vietnamese attacked two South
Vietnamese district towns after
crossing into South Vietnam from
American fighter-bombers pur-
sued retreating North Vietnamese
two and a half miles into Cam-
bodia, smashing a Cambodian
border post which South Vietnam-
ese official said was being used
by enemy artillery observers.
The U.S. Command, which un-
til recently has been cautious in
references to air and artillery
strikes into Cambodia, acknow-
ledged the action Wednesday and
Thursday. FRED HAMPTON, slain eader

CHICAGO (M - Fred Hamp-
ton, leader of the Illinois
Black Panther party and ano-
ther party member Mark
Clark were killed yesterday in
a gun battle on Chicago's West
Three members of the Panther
party were charged with attempt-
ed murder and aggravated battery
in the predawn battle.
The C o o k County-Chicago's-
state's attorney's office said gun-
fire erupted as investigators, car-
rying a search warrant, raided an
apartment shared by Hampton
and Bobby Rush, another Panther
The warrant charging illegal
possession of firearms was issued
in Circuit Court Wednesday after
a witness testified he had seen "a
large cache of shotguns and other
weapons" in the building.
Edward Hanrahan, state's at-
torney, said seven handguns, seven
shotguns and 1,000 rounds of am-
munition were confiscated. One of
the shotguns was stolen in April
from a Chicago Police Department
patrol car, he said.
Hampton was among nine per-
sons who opened fire on 13 mem-
bers of a special prosecution unit
of the state's attorney's office.
Officials said the unit stormed
through barricaded doors at the
Sgt. Dan Groth, leader of the
raid, said he twice pleaded with
the occupants of the apartment
to cease firing. But each time, he
said, "a voice came from the back
Uand shouted: shoot it out.'"
