OAS Patrols'
_ Skirmishes'

AN INTER-AMERICAN military police patrol is inspected by an.
American lieutenant. The patrol is made up of Americans, Costa
Ricans and Hondurans under the Organization of American
States. Blame for a skirmish yesterday between Dominican rebels
and an inter-American force was shunted around by both sides.
Meanwhile, the rebels called for observers from both the OAS and
the United Nations to be posted in the city to stop possible vio-
lations of the cease-fire.
DeGaulle Still Stalls on
common Market Plan
PARIS (P)-President Charles DeGaulle's government yesterday
maintained its empty chair tactics in the Common Market as trouble
S loomed at home and elsewhere in Europe.
DeGaulle called his regular weekly cabinet meeting and govern-
ment officials from the five other Common Market nations awaited
some indication that might point a way out of the week-old impasse.
But after a relatively short cabinet session, the cabinet spokes-
man, Information Minister Alain Peyrefitte, fended off a barrage of"
questions from newsmen by referring them to a cabinet statement

France would boycott Common
Market meetings for the present.
France contends that its Comr
mon Market partners-West Ger-
many, Italy, Belgium, Holland
and Luxembourg-failed to keep
a promise to establish agricultural
financing provisions for the Cus-
toms Union by June 30. Without
such provisions, the agricultura
chapters of the Rome treaty set-
ting up the Common Market can-
not be realized.
Great strides have been made
on the industrial side of the
Common Market, but farm pro-
gress has been slow. France-the
biggest farming nation among the
six, insists that the agricultura
provisions of the treaty must be
quickly realized.
French officials have tried to
give the impression that France
might go so far as to cancel al
of its relationships with the Comi
mon Market. Most observers fee
that France, with her industry al-
ready committed to the Common
Market, could not completely
abandon the Customs Union.
The French National Farmers
Syndicate was showing increasing
alarm about the freeze on the
Brussels talks.
Syndicate officials were press-
ing for a reopening. French farm-
ers have been looking forward t

NEW YORK 0P) - American
church leaders hailed the prospect
of a visit this fall by Pope Paul VI
to the United States-and pos-
sibly to the United Nations-as
an opportunity for strengthening
the trend toward closer ties among
It would be the first trip by the
head of Roman Catholicism to
this continent.
The Pope would be "received'
very warmly in America by all
men of good will," said the Rev.
James I. McCord, president of
Princeton Seminary and head of
a United Presbyterian Church-
Unity Commission.
Such a visit, he said, would be
"a dramatic indication not only of
the Vatican's interest in peace,
but also of the new ecumenical
spirit which prevails throughout
all Christendom. today."
Likelihood of the trip, rumored
for nearly a month, has been in-
creasingly indicated by statements
both at the Vatican and the Unit-
ed Nations. Vatican sources have
said the Pope has been invited to
address the UN General Assembly
and may accept.
The Rev. Franklin Clark Fry,
president of the Lutheran Church
in America and chairman of the
Central Committee of the World
Council of Churches, said:
Mutual Acquaintance
"I am confident that Protestant
leaders would gladly respond in
Christian friendship in all ways

open to them during such a visit.
"Anything that furthers mutual
Christian acquaintance a n d
friendship is definitely an asset in
the ecumenical movement."
The Vatican broke weeks of of-
ficial silence recently on published
speculation about such an un-
precedented papal visit to Amer-
ica in a press office communique
which said Pope Paul had express-
ed his appreciation to UN Secre-
tary-General U Thant for the in-
The communique said it is pre-
mature to say when, or whether,
the Pope might go to New York-
but the very fact that the an-
nouncement was made by the Vat-
ican at all was taken as an indi-
cation that the Pope has the trip
under serious consideration. Gen-
eral belief is that he has not defi-
nitely made up his mind, but is
inclined to accept Thant's invita-
There was no indication wheth-
er he would travel in the United
States beyond the UN. One report
here was that he would strictly

"At a time when Christians are
drawing closer to one another,
they ought to encourage the people

Reports have indicated that the

would be made when the UN As-

Pope would make a major appeal
for negotiations and disarmament.
"It would certainly represent
the growing Christian dialogue
with the world, and the concern
not merely of Roman Catholics
but of all Christians with the
great issues lying before mankind
of world peace and world hunger,"

said Peter Day, ecumenical officer
of the Episcopal Church.
He added that it also "is to be

Roman Catholicism and other
The Rev. John B. Sheerin, edi-
tor of the Catholic World, said
the visit would be an important
manifestation of the Church's
new efforts for "dialogue with
the modern world."
"It means getting to the heart
of peace-keeping," he said. He
said it also was in line with
Schema 13, pending before the
Vatican Council, that called for
greater "opening to the world"
and closer unity with it in service.
Dr. Paul Empie, executive sec-
retary of the National Lutheran

Council, voiced hope that Pope
Paul's agenda would allow for
meeting a "cross-section of church
leaders in America. It would give
further impetus to the fresh un-
derstandings and developing rela-
tionships between Roman Catho-
lics and other Christian churches."
It would be the Pope's third trip
out of Italy. He has visited the
Holy Land and India.
Sometimes called the "apostle
on the move," Pope Paul voiced
the breadth of his outlook in an
address to the Vatican Council
"Let the world know this: the
Church looks at the world with
profound. understanding, with sin-
cere admiration, and with the
sincere intention not of conquer-
ing it, but of serving it, not of
despising it, but of appreciating it,
not of condemning it, but of
strengthening and savilg it."
