Question Of
Seating China
Raised Again
Italians Propose New
Committee To Seek
Answer for China
proposed yesterday that the Gen-
15 era] Assembly create a small, high-
level study committee to devise a
practical method for breaking the
16-year-old impasse over seating
Communist China.
Attilio Piccioni, Italian senator
and former foreign minister, made
the proposal as the 121-nation
assembly opened its annual debate
on Chinese representation. He said
it would provide a fresh approach
to the problem.
Cambodia introduced the usual
pro-Peking resolution calling on
the assembly to admit the Chinese
Communists and expel the Chinese
Nationalists. It is expected to fail
with perhaps a larger margin of
no votes than last year.
Cool Reaction
Initial reaction to the Italian
proposal was cool on almost all
sides. Supporters of Peking said
it was a delaying action because
the committee would report back
to the next General Assembly. A
U.S. spokesman was noncommital.
Picconi told the assembly that
one factor inhibiting the situation
was uncertainty over attitude of
Peking toward U.N. membership.
Therefore, he added, the com-
mittee should direct its inquiry
along' these lines: Does Peking
really want to be in the United
Nations? If the answer is yes, will
is abide by the provisions of the
U.N. Charter?
The third query,. he said, "Is
what can and must be the posi-
tion" of Nationalist China.
Italy Supports Vote
He said Italy would vote against
the pro-Peking resolution, and
also support the U.S. position that
approval requires a two-thirds ma-
Piccioni made no direct ref-
erence to a "two-Chinas" approach
to the problem, now the subject of
private conferences among U.N.
diplomats probing still another
course of action for the assembly.
Under this plan, Communist
China'would be admitted and
given the big power Security Coun-
cil seat held by Nationalist China,
which would retain its seat in the
assembly as representative of the
government of Formosa.
No Two Chinas
Wei Tao-ming, foreign minister
or Nationalist China, declared
rtegorically that a two-China
solution was unacceptable to his
Wei said the creation of the
"Red Guards" on the Chinese
mainland was proof that the Pe-
king government was i n deep
"Far from making the Chinese
Communists more moderate in
words and deeds, such a proposal
would strengthen their belief that
they are indeed invincible, and
that their policy of aggression has
paid off," he added.

Says Brief Holiday
Pause Possible But
No Bomb Halt Seen
WASHINGTON W) - Secretary
of State Dean Rusk held the door
open yesterday to a possible brief
Christmas truce in the war in Viet
Nam, though he ruled out any
long pause in bombing North Viet
Nam under present circumstances.
Rusk told a news conference
that actual decisions on a Christ-
mas lull would depend on what
the South Vietnamese wanted to
do and also to some extent on the
Viet Cong-the Communist forces
figthing the allies in South Viet
His discussion of the possibilities
covered not only Christmas but
also "Tet," the traditional new
year period in Viet Nam which
comes a few weeks after Christ-
Asked specifically about a holi-
day halt in the fighting next
month, Rusk said, "We ought to
distinguish between what might
happen at Christmas and the idea
of a general pause such as we had
a year ago."
No Indication
"We've not been able to get any
indicationfrom the other side on
what would happen if the bombing
of North Viet Nam stopped."
He added that this was not for
a lack of contact because "we've
tried almost every week since last
On other subjects Rusk told
1. The United States is "very
much disturbed" by the conditions
under which a Czech-born Amer-
ican citizen was recently pulled off
a Soviet airplane at Prague and
put under arrest.
"We do 'not like the circum-
stances of this man's treatment,"
Rusk declared. He said the United
States is asking explanations from
the Soviet Union as well as
Czechoslovakia concerning the
case of V. J. Kazan-Komarek,
president of the Harvard Travel
Service in Cambridge, Mass.
2. The whole Communist world
apparently has avoided a "mis-
calculation" of the importance of
the Nov. 8 elections on U.S. policy
in Viet Nam. Rusk said the Com-
munists seem to understand that
the election does not have any
significant effect on U.S. policy.
3. President Johnson feels that
in spite of differences with East
European countries over Viet Nam
the United States must "keep
probing" the Soviet Union and the
other countries for possible new
4. The United States hopes for
early agreement with the Soviet
Union in the United Nations on 9
pact to outlaw military bases and
operatioins in outer space. Rusk
also expressed continuing hope for
a treaty to ban the spread of nu-
clear weapons but said a conclu-

BONN, West Germany (R)-A
new West German chancellor, a
new foreign policy, and a new
upsurge of the extreme right-all
three could emerge from a state
election Sunday in Bavaria.
Coming at the height of a po-
litical crsis in Bonn, the vote will
have a magnified effect in na-
tional politics. West German
leaders are looking for a new
chancellor to replace Ludwig Er-
hard and a new combination of
ministers under him.
The upsurge on the far right
and the foreign criticism sure to
follow are dreaded by most West
Germans. The rightist Nationall
Democratic party is expected to
show its greatest strenth in the
region around Nuernberg, once
the shrine of the Nazis; and Bay-
reuth, home of Adolf Hitler's
favorite composer and poet--
Richard Wagner.
The People Decide
The voters will be choosing the
204 members of the legislature in
a state with a population of about
10 million. The politicians will be
watching the effect on ex-Defense
Minister Franz Josef Strauss and'
his bid to shift West Germany to
a line more favorable to French
President Charles de Gaulle.
Strauss is not running in Bav-
aria himself but he leads the local
wing of the Christian Democratic
party, called the Christian Social
Union. But he sees a major post
in the next Cabinet. Strauss
helped make Kurt Georg Kiesing-
er the Christian Democrat choice
for chancellor, and Kiesinger has
publicly promised him his re-

arian results are in.

himself, might have to give up his
candidacy for the chancellorship.
The Christian Democrats have
110 seatshin the legislature, the
Social Democrats 79, the Free
Democrats 10 and the Bavarian
party five.
Prospects are for a small ad-
vance of the Social Democrats
and a small decline for the Chris-
tian Democrats. Some observers
are predicting that the small par-
ties will lose all their seats to the
National Democrats, the new par-
ty of the extreme right which
showed surprising strength two
weeks ago in the State of Hesse.

ROVIGO, Italy ()-The stormy

Call Off Repairs
Officials called off repair work
on Thursday's break in a dike
near the town of Scardovari be-
cause of rough water and danger
from barges that had been sunk
by waves offshore.
Operations continued to build up
the sides of other dikes and to
evacuate the population. More
than 10,000 persons have been
taken to higher ground in the past
two days.
The new crisis in the Po delta
came two weeks after the most ex-
tensive floods in Italy's history

had swamped the north and cen-
tral regions. Many residents of the
battered delta had been back in
their homes for only a few days
when the new storm broke.
The delta towns of Scardovari
and Bonelli, with a total popula-
tion of 5,000 were completely

tically in the delta, President Gui-'

Berlin, head of the Social Dem-
ocrat party, has attacked Kiesin-
ger for tieing himself too closely
to Strauss. And on the devious-
paths of West German politics,

foes but as potential allies. There

The government has set up a
500-billion lire - $800 million -
program to aid the stricken re-
gions and has increased gasoline
and income taxes to pay for it.
Some critics of the government
have declared that the aid pro-
gram is too ,small to rebuild the
wrecked economy of the one-third
of the nation hit by the floods.
As Premier Aldo Moro toured
mud-clogged Florence, the hardest
hit of scores of flood-damaged
communities, Florence Mayor Piero
Bargellini was asked by a reporter
if he was satisfied with the' gov-
ernment's aid to the city.
"The wife is always unhappy
with the money the husband gives
her for shopping," he replied, "but
then she realizes that the poor
man couldn't do any better."

WASHINGTON (k) - Virginia

turn aside a major challenge to
state laws barring interracial mar-
Defending the state's ban on
mixed marriages, Virginia officials
said various federal and state
courts already have held that such
laws do not violate the "equal pro-

wisdom, propriety or desirability
of preventing interracial alliances
is utterly forbidden," Virginia
Atty. Gen. Robert Y. Button told

DETROIT - General Motors
Corp. said yesterday it plans to
cut car production by 3.7 per
cent next month and by 4.4 per
cent more in early January.
The cut in production schedules
by the nation's largest automaker
followed a report by a trade pub-
lication that GM, Ford Motor Co.
and Chrysler Corp. already have
trimmed 58,000 units off their No-
vember car production plans..
New car sales in the first 10
days of this month have lagged
five per cent behind the pace of
a year ago.
GM said its scheduled produc-
tion cutbacks will be made "to bal-
ance production plans for the near
future with expected demands."

PASADENA,'Calif.-Lunar Or-

of the moon yesterday and a source
said they showed a crater-pocked

men to land on.
The source, who could not be
identified, said he had seen Po-
laroid prints made as the pictures

were received at a tracking sta-
tion at Goldsteon, Calif., yester-
day afternoon.
The pictures, meant to show
surface details as small as three
feet in diameter, indicated typi-
cal lunar terrain dotted with cra-
ters of all sizes.
Scientific evaluation of the pho-
tographs will be made when pic-
tures are released later, but the
