An American officer said the ri-

restore order to avoid having to
resort to bayonets. It was not im-

whether any of the rioters were
seriously injured.
About 100 paratroops participat-
ed in breaking up the riots. They
were armed with shotguns, auto-
matic rifles and night sticks. They
withdrew after restoring order,
leaving a small detachment to
work with the national police.

Armed Forces Minister Francis-

military leaders were rebelling.

Rebellion

He said the palace guard had
merely been reinforced and the
government radio station "taken
into custody" for a while. He term-
ed such acts demonstrations of
disagreement and said the army
acted spontaneously.
The government radio was still
silent, but the San Isidro radio,
located at the airbase 15 miles
east of Santo Domingo, continued
broadcasting announcement of
pledges by military units to an
alleged armed forces communique
rejecting the president's transfer
orders.

State Department press officer
Robert J. McCloskey said when

Officials said privately they did
not believe a full-blown military
revolt against Garcia-Godoy was
in progress, but said it was clear;
a military power play was going
on.

ARRIVES IN NORTH VIET NAM:
Shelepin Sees Communist Win

MOSCOW-The Soviet Commu-
n nist party's ace troubleshooter ar-

said: "Any decision on the re-

The bombing hiatus is the mili-
tary phase of the intensive peace
offensive Johnson has been direct-
ing since shortly after Christmas.
Indications in the past few days
have been that it is likely to con-
tinue through next week even if
Hanoi persists in its refusal to
join in any effort to move the
Vietnamese conflict from the bat-
tlefield to the conference table. No
date has been fixed for its end.

Military authorities also are
sending across several 350-foot
floating piers to serve where per-
manent docks are few and inade-
quate.

Saigon despite frustration of the

NEW YORK (M)-Labor Secre-
tary W. Willard Wirtz said yes-
terday he sees no shortcut to
settlement of New York's week-
old transit crisis. But a mediator
claimed to "smell" an atmosphere
of approaching agreement in the
subway and bus strike.

Transit Authority asked $322,000

Rivera Caminero, who was or-
dered to Washington, said he
would be ready to go as soon as
he could put his personal affairs

"A thousand per cent better
than Thursday," was Traffic Com-
missioner Henry A. Barnes' assess-
ment in the fifth straight day of
mammoth auto and commuter rail
jams. Rain complicated Thurs-
day's tieup and the result was
what he called "the longest rush
hour in the city's history."
Wirtz Returns
Returning to Washington after

York at the request of Republican
Mayor John V. Lindsay, who has
had the transit millstone around
his neck from the moment he took
office at the midnight stroke of
the New Year.
The walkout of 34,400 employes
of city-owned subway and bus
lines is costing New York's econ-
omy $100 million a day, accord-
ing to estimates by business
sources.
While Wirtz was briefing the
White House on the strike situa-
tion, the chief mediator in the
dispute, Dr. Nathan Feinsinger,
told a news conference here: "I
think I can smell an agreement
or atmosphere of agreement when
it arises around a bargaining ta-
ble. I can smell one now - not
necessarily today, tomorrow or the
next day."
Speed Settlement
Feinsinger said he didn't think
a settlement would be speeded by
the release of Quill and eight sth-
er strike leaders who were jailedI
Tuesday for contempt of court.
"On the contrary, it would add
insult to injury," the mediator de-
clared. "I have no doubt that Quill
is still directing traffic."
Pressure for the release of the
nine union officials built up be-
hind Harry Van Arsdale, head of
the City Central Labor Council,
who took his plea to Republican
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller dur-
ing the day.
Rocky Answers
Rockefeller's answer was the
same as that made earlier by

Mayor Lindsay-that the release
of Quill and the others was up to
the Transit Authority, which had
them jailed in the first place.
Van Arsdale, whose council
claims to represent a million New
York City unionists, said Quill's
release would expedite a strike set-
tlement.
Actually, Quill has been confin-
ed to Bellevue Hospital since sW -
fering a seizure shortly after his
imprisonment. The nature of his
ailment has not been disclosed,
although he was treated for a pos-
sible heart attack because of a
past history of cardiac trouble.
A hospital medical bulletin yes-
terday read: "The doctors caging
for Mr. Quill report that he had
a restful night and is somewhat
better."
Quill and the eight other strike
leaders were jailed for contempt
of court after they refused to halt
the subway and bus strike, which
began at 5 a.m. New Year's Day' in
violation of a nonstrike court in-
junction.
Clear skies replaced Thursday's
rain and, although rail and auto
traffic was reported just as heavy,
it moved more smoothly. Vehicular
traffic was speeded when police
reversed opposite lanes on bridges
to the direction of the heavy traf-
fic flow.
Despite the hardships of travel,
about 80 per cent of those work-
ing in Manhattan have been get-
ting to their jobs. This led Coin-
missioner Barnes to pay tribute
to their "amazing ingenuity."

Raise Speculations
Some diplomats speculated that
the U.S.S.R. was trying to per-
suade Ho to negotiate peace in
South Viet Nam with the United1
States. Others took the line that!
the Kremlin was preparing a big
increase in military and economic
aid to North Viet Nam not only
to outbid Red China, but to
match possible escalation of the
U.S. effort.
Tass said thousands of Hanoi
residents turned out in the streets
to welcome Shelepin, high-rank-
ing -member of the Soviet party
secretariat and ruling Presidium,
and that the crowd burst into
cheers when the visitor appeared
in Ba Dinh Square with Hanoi
government leaders.
The North Vietnamese premier,
welcoming Shelepin and his dele-
gation, said the visit came at a
time when "the American imper-
ialists are intensely conducting a
false so - called 'peace-seeking'
campaign in order to condition
public opinion to new, extremely
dangerous steps on the road of
escalation." He said in such con-
dition, Hanoi welcomed support
from the Soviet Union "along with
the valuable support rendered to
us by China."
Reports Bombing
Red China reported yesterday
that the United States resumed
bombing of North Viet Nam on
Wednesday. Washington denied it,
and an administration leader said
he expects no early end to the
bombing lull which began Dec. 24.

economic demands of war and
peace pushed the nation's job to-

tal to a record December high,
while unemployment hit a nine-
year low and the government mov-
ed yesterday against the threat of

TASHKENT, U.S.S.R. - Soviet

Premier Alexei N. Kosygin got the
stalled India-Pakistan conference
back in motion yesterday but a
solution to the smouldering quar-
rel still was elusive.
President Ayub Khan of Paki-
stan and Prime Minister Lal Bah-
adur 'Shastri of India conferred
privately twice for a total of
about 1%/2 hours for the first time
since Wednesday.
They were still deadlocked on
Kashmir, the heart of 18 years of
strife and bloodshed, but were au-
thoritatively reported considering
minor issues in an attempt to re-
duce tension.
Kosygin, who formed the sole
link between Ayub and Shartsi on
Thursday, spent more than three
hours with the Indian leader yes-
terday. There was no explanation
why he did not meet Ayub.
