U.S. move fails

to end


Peace talks recess for one week;
Thuy remains adamant on bombing
PARIS (M - North Vietnam parried an American attempt
to seek a break in the deadlock in the peace talks yesterday
and left the impression it will hold out until the United
States surrenders on the issue of halting air attacks.
At the request of the North Vietnamese delegation the
sessions were recessed until next Wednesday, the longest gap
thus far. The U.S. delegation spokesman said, "I can't say
that any progress was made."
Ambassador W. Averell Harriman, the chief U.S. nego-
tiator, seized upon a Hanoi statement of last week which de-
manded that the United States "acknowledge its responsi-
billy" to halt the bombardment. That statement, it was un-

SAIGON P)-The allied com-
mand detected yesterday a gen-
eral withdrawal of the enemy
units that attacked Saigon and its
suburbs a month ago, and a pris-
oner said the\Viet Cong would pull
out to rest and refit for a new at-
Vietnamese rangers, in blocking
positions to cut off possible es-
cape routes, killed 21 Viet Cong in
heavy fighting through the aban-
doned shops and homes of the
war-torn Cholon district.
Government soldiers and U.S.
Marines ambushed an estimated
300 Viet Cong and North Viet-
namese apparently' trying to leave
Gla Dinh.
The marines killed ten enemy
soldiers and captured ten more in
a trap on the banks of the Sai-
gon River.
Vietnamese navy boats ma-
chine-gunned a group of enemy
soldiers that tried to swim the
300-foot-wide river and claimed
15 of the enemy were killed.
Some- of the enemy units were
reported heading westward from
Gia Dinh into the residential dis-
trict of Go Hap where they could
establish new strongholds.
The enemy maneuvers gave cre-
dence to the report of a captured
Communist cell leader who said
the Viet Cong were beginning a
10-day rest in preparation for a
June 15 attack.

of the offensive is to prove to the
city's residence and to U.S. and
North Vietnamese negotiators in
Paris that the Viet Cong can at-
tack and enter Saigon at will.

derstood, later was revised by

Hanoi from the original word-
ing in the official newspaper
Nhan Dan.
"You have asked," Harriman
said, "that we acknowledge or de-
termine our responsibility for a
cessation of all bombardment. As
we have stated, this has never
represented an insurmountable
obstacle for us, and we are pre-
pared to cease the bombardment
at an appropriate time and in ap-
propriate circumstances. I hope
that we will proceed forthwith to
the discussion of other matters."
William J. Jorden, the U.S.
spokesman, said Harriman used
"acknowledge and determine" to
cover either version of the Hanoi
statement which had been cor-
rected from "acknowledge" to "de-
The indications now seemed
otherwise, as if Hanoi is prepared
to hold out as long as necessary
for a U.S. retreat on the issue.
Jordan said Xuan Thuy, the chief
Hanoi negotiator, again "firmly
rejected" any idea that Hanoi
should respond to a cessation of
bombardment by scaling down its
own war activity.
Harriman called the war in
Laos "the forgotten war." He has
called before for restoring Laotian
neutrality-which would mean
cutting infiltration trails from the
North to South Vietnam. He said
yesterday that if the neutrality
were established in fact as well as
in the 1962 Geneva agreement,
then other results could be
Harriman apparently felt free to
talk about the issue at length
even though North Vietnam has
said the only subject for discus-
sion now is action by the United
States to halt all attacks on the
Thuy said he recognized the
bombing has been limited, but
said: "Your perfidious design is ...
pretending to 'de-escalate' with a
view to misleading public opin-
ion ..."

Left and right clash during Italian elections
Yugos larv ffiarsrMay
meet studentde

BELGRALE (IP)-Yugoslav au-
thorities were prepared yesterday
to satisfy a large number of stu-
dent demands amid signs that
extremist students have decided
to push for more than the gov-
ernment is ready to grant.
Students continued to occupy
several university faculty build-
ings. However, their headquarters
in downtown Belgrade was under
close police surveillance.
Banners denouncing the police
and proclaiming "Down with Red
Bourgeoisie" still hung from a
balcony on the occupied demon-
stration building of the university
but no further fighting or inci-
dents were reported. '
Fresh posters on occupied uni-
versity buildings indicated that
some students, described by Com-
munist authorities as extremists,
have turned their campaign into
a purely political one.
New posters denounced "Social-
ist princes" and demanded the
resignation of 'incapable leaders"
and widespread democratization.
One poster at student head-
quarters said they oppose "resto-
ration of capitalism," a favorite

slogan of the Communist Chinese.
However, this was the only hint
that pro-Peking elements were
active among students.
Previous student complaints had
dealt with the details of student
life as well as politics.
The students have demanded
democratization of the Communist
Party, complaining it has fostered
a rich, new class. They have also
demanded freedom of the press
and abolition of social privileges.
Observers have surmised that
student demands seem to be for
a type of reform similar to the one
which has taken place in Czecho-
slovakia, a country many Yugo-
slavs consider more liberal than
their own.
A report from Sarajevo, univer-
sity city of the Republic of Bos-
nia-Hercegovina, said that police
and students clashed there Tues-

The clashes marked the first
violent protest in the country
since the Communist takeover.
From other university centers
came reports that students are
supporting demands of their Bel-
grade colleagues, but that no sup-
port was given to demonstrations
and riots that broke out here Sun-
\day and Monday.
The Communist party took a
strong stand against extremists,
acusing them of "anarchist de-
mands" and said that while jus-
tified demands will be satisfied,
disorder and riots will not be tole-
The Communist party-organized
meetings of workers in factories
continued to carry resolutions
supporting the justified student
demands, evidently those the gov-
ernment is ready to satisfy, but
strongly opposing demonstrations
and riots.

break ties
ROME (P)-Premier Aldo Moro
resigned yesterday as head of
Italy's 27th postwar government,
coupling a political crisis with a
wave of student unrest.
Moro's center-left coalition
broke down last week. The So-
cialist partners voted to pull out
on the grounds that their ties with
Moro's Christian Democrats ac-
counted for Socialist setbacks, in
last month's elections for a new
Parliament. The Christian Dem-
ocrats made gains.
The government crisis is expect-
ed tobe eased but not resolved by
formation of a minority Christian
Democrat cabinet.
Moro submitted the resignation
to President Giuseppe Saragat.
a Following custom, Saragat asked
Moro and his Cabinet to stay on
for administrative work while the
president looks for a new, premier.
Mariano Rumor, Christian Dem-
ocrat party secretary, and Emilie
Colombo, another Christian Dem-
ocrat and outgoing treasury min-
ister, have been mentioned as the
most likely candidates to form
the new government.
The old Cabinet approved the
resignation hours after the seat-
ing of the fifth postwar republican
legislature, an inaugural which
provided an indication that the
Christian Democrats and the So-
cialists would continue coopera-
ting closely in Parliament.
As the result of a trade, Chris-
tian Democrat Amintore Fanfani,
outgong foreign minister, was
elected president of the Senate
and Socialist Sandro Pertini was
elected president of the Chamber
of Deputies.
For Moro, 51, the move ended
five often stormy years as head
of the- country's first governing
coalition of Roman Catholics and
Violence struck the Moro gov-
ernment in four major cities dur-
ing the week where both workers
and students held active protests.
In Lanciano, east of Rome near
the Adriatic sea, riot squads used
tear gas to drive back striking
factory workers. The laborers
smashed windows in the City Hall,
set fire to a postal truck, and
battled police with stones and
Students in Turin, Rome, and
Naples vigorously demonstrated,
brandishing red flags of revolu-
tion and black flags of anarchy.
At least a dozen students were
reported injured in the Turin
demonstrations. Left - Wingers
armed with nail-studded clubs
clashed with groups of moderate
opposing students who tried to rip
down flags andI enter a university
In Naples, police with clubs
broke up a march by nearly 200
employes of local schools demand-
ing higher wages. -
Armed police kept order in
Rome where a handful of students
returned under guard to the uni-
versity to resume exams.
Police had earlier cleared the
Rome university of 2,000 rebel-
lious students who had occupied
it since Friday night.
There has been no sign that the
student and worker disorders are
directly connected, howeyer.

First strikers report
backi to jobs in Paris



PARIS (MP)-The municipal tran-
sport system announced last night
that Paris subway trains and buses
will start rolling today. This ap-
peared to be the first major
break-through in a strike wave
that has crippled France for 19
The Socialist Trade Union Fed-
eration, one of several involved
in talks for a settlement, said the
decision to restore the capital's
public transport came "after long
and difficult negotiations which,
have brought substantial improve-
ment" for the employes.
Paris had been paralyzed at the
evening rush hour by a colossal
traffic jam as motorists made use
of available gasoline.
A joint announcement from all
unions involved said the workers
had agreed by a large majority

Britain to borrow
international money



LONDON (R) - Britain an-
nounced yesterday it will borrow
$1.4 billion from the International
Monetary Fund to repay loans in-
curred after devaluation of the
pound last November.
The three-year drawing in ef-
fect gives Britain more time to
repay the earlier loans, but has
no effect on the strength of the
country's reserves backing the
pound. There was no adverse im-
mediate reaction in London finan-
cial markets.
Provision for the drawing exer-
cised yesterday was made at the
time of devaluation, when the
pound's relation to the dollar was
cut from $2.80 to $2.40.
At that time Britain incurred
an undisclosed amount of short-
term debts by borrowing from
central banks.
Britain's ability to repay these
loans is linked to the economic
benefits from devaluation, ex-
pected to show up next year.
After the announcement the
pound eased a fraction to $2.3858
from $2.3895. Prices held steady
on the London Stock exchange.
The treasury also announced a
drop during May of $26.6 million

in the country's gold and con-
vertible currency reserves backing
the pound. They now total $2.775
This was still well above the
serious drop in reserves of $240
million last December, the month
after devaluation, when the re-
serves stood at $1.695 billion.
The drop in reserves during May
was blamed on a series of difficul-
ties abroad rather than on do-
mestic problems.
These included pressure on
paper money from demand for
gold ,in the free market, uncer-
tainty over American balance of
payments difficulties and the pro-
posed U.S. tax increase to com-
bat them, and the weakness of
the French franc.

End search
for ,Scorpion
on Wednesday officially pro-
nounced the nuclear submarine
Scorpion with its crew of 99 "lost
in the depths of the Atlantic."
Adm. Thomas H. Moorer, chief
of naval operations, said it was
his "sad duty" to announce that
the extensive air and ocean search
the past ten days has failed to
turn up any trace of the Scorpion.
"Now, because of the lack of any
evidence of Scorpion's presence on
the surface or in waters which
would permit rescue, we must'
conclude that she was lost in the
'depths of the Atlantic," Moorer
The submarine had been listed
as overdue since failing to arrive
as scheduled May 27 at her home
port of Norfolk, Va., afters a sub-
merged Atlantic crossing.

to accept the proposed settlement
and return to work. Details of the
settlement were not .reported.
The Paris subway has 105 miles
of track and carries more than
1.5 billion travelers a year. The
bus services carry about 300. mil-
lion passengers a year.
The government had asserted
its intention of insuring the right
to work of strikers wanting to
return to their jobs. Elsewhere in
France the back-to-work move-
ment appeared slow but steady.
There seemed to be a possibility
of a general return of railroad
workers. The unions said that, on
the basis of votes already counted,
the workers appeared to be choos-
ing 3 tb 1 to end their strike. /
Post office employes were get-
ting down to work in many ci-
ties, sorting the mountain of ac-
cumulated mail.
Air France personnel voted to,
end their strike.
Paris' Orly and Le Bourget air-
ports began reopening.
Some ports wete operating but
the Chanel ports, Calais, Boulogne
and Dunkerque, were still shut
The central strike committee of
the French Postal and Telephone
System anounced resumption of
transatlantic phone calls, "because
of the important event which oc-
curred in the United States," the
shooting of Sen. Robert F. KEn-
nedy. The service resumed before
the strikers completed a vote on
whether to approve a proposed
The railway holdout was set-
tled last Monday night. After an
all-night bargaining session with
Transport Minister Jean Cha-
mant, the union agreed to a 12 per
cent wage hike.
The Finance Minister gave a
slight indication of the cost of the
strike by announcing the nation's
reserves of gold and foreign cur-
rencies slumped $306 million last
month to $5,720,500,000.
