Q: Do you believe the "Great
Society" will face a major slow-

them rather than negating them.

Astronaut To Take

CAPE KENNEDY (A) - Gemini
r 12 -pilot Edwin E. (Buzz) Aldrin
Jr. charges into a searching, two-
hour walk in space today, hoping
to pin-point human limitations in
that hostile environment.
Whipping 42,000 miles through
the ocean of void, Aldrin poked
head and shoulders out of his
spaceship yesterday for more than
two hours as he and companion
James A. Lovell Jr. chased the
moon across the face of the sun.
Aldrin was awed and chatty as
he sailed through a complex pic-
ture taking session of man's first,
perhaps most revealing, pictures
of a rare .solar eclipse from space.
It proved to be a smooth sailing,
flawless prelude to today's long
work session outside.
As the moon moved between the
earth and sun, the astronauts
shielded their eyes and took stills
and movies of the seven-second
event. However, they failed to
spot the 52-mile long shadow of
the moon as it swept across Peru,
Boliva, Brazil and Argentina be-
low. On earth, the eclipse lasted
for 31/2 hours as 800 scientists
charted its progress.
Aldrin's space walk is designed
to probe baffling questions uncov-
ered by previous strollers. He will
go to the rear of the spaceship
where a "work bench" has been
designed with some simple task

ease over to the Agena target ve-
hicle to which the Gemini craft

foot cord for a formation flight

WASHINGTON ()P) - Any call
issued by Pope Paul VI for a
Christmas truce in Viet Nam is
assured of sympathetic consider-
ation in Washington, but Johnson
administration o f f ic i als are
strongly opposed to another pro-
longed, one-sided pause in bomb-
ing North Viet Nam.
The U.S. attitude does not rule
out a Christmas lull in the fight-
ing. It does, however, appear to
bar any _repetition of the 37-day
suspension of air strikes against
North Viet Nam such as grew out
of the Christmas truce a year ago.
The one exception would be
some indication from North Viet
Nam, perhaps through the Soviet
Union, that a decision by John-
son halting the bombing would
bring- immediate, responsive steps
from the Communists. The word
from Hanoi would probably be
clothed in diplomatic secrecy, but
U.S. officials say there has been
no such indication so far.
As President Johnson and his
top advisers see it, the aerial of-
fensive against the North is one
of the most potent instruments
they have for bringing about
peace negotiations or scaling down
the Vietnamese conflict. They in-
sist that any pause must be Justi-
fied by some move toward peace
from the Communist side.
As Johnson put it Friday: "We
are very anxious to always give
consideration, and as sympathetic
as possible, to any suggestion the
Pope gives, as we did last year.
But we are also anxious to have
other people do likewise."
This comment, a restatement of
a news conference remark of a
week earlier, was made as ne and
roving Ambassador W. Averell
Harriman talked with newsmen at
the Johnson ranch in Texas.
Harriman said Friday "we are
hopeful" that some sign of pro-
gress toward peace talks will
emerge from Moscow discussions
next month between the Soviets
and the British.
Indeed, the lack of any demon-
strated interest on North Viet.
Nam's part in easing or ending
the conflict is seen by Washing-
ton officials as the fatal flaw in
the new surge of peace efforts
which has developed in the last
These developments included a
strong indication from the Vatican
Press Office in Rome that Pope
Paul will call again for a Christ-
mas cease-fire. The appeal he
issued last year resulted in a lull
in the fighting and with that as
a start Johnson built his own ac-
tions into a peace offensive that
produced a 37-day pause in the
bombing of the North.
The flattest request for a bomb-
ing pause came last week from
U.N. Secretary-General U Thant
who said the United States should
stop the attacks unconditionally
and without a time limit. His pro-
posal appeared completely at odds
with Johnson's policy.
The importance of the air of-
fensive over North Viet Nam as an
element in the search for peace
was strongly emphasized by vet-
eran Canadian diplomat Chester
Ronning, former envoy to Peking.
He said in Montreal there was no
possibility of starting peace ne-
gotiations unless the bombing was
