Those talks are in recess until'
Wednesday. Ambassadors W. Ave-

went to New York to attend the
senator's funeral, and for the mo-

Among the many far-reaching
consequences of the assassination
may be that it will strengthen the
y determination of the North Viet-
namese to hold out in Paris for
their minimum demand before
permitting any progress in the
talks. That demand is complete
cessation of bombardment of the
North, free of any cost to Hanoi.
For more than a year, North
Vietnam's statements have re-
flected a conviction that the
United States is ensnared in an
;internal revolutionary situation
which will force it to come to
terms sooner or later to end an
insupportable war in Vietnam.
In Saigon, Gen. William C.

a few hours after the capital suf-
fered its worst rocket attack in
five weeks and condemned indis-

TOKYO (M)-Nearly 25,000 stu-

The students fought with police
when they tried to break through
a police cordon around the air
base. About 150 persons were in-

national police board said.
Hundreds of students staged a
sit-down on an auxiliary runway
on the outer fringe of the air
base but later withdrew.

PARIS (M) - President Charles de Gaulle assailed com-
munism and capitalism last night and outlined what he
called a "third solution" for France, linking French workers
closely with the operation and benefits of their factories.
The general spoke to his nation in a radio and television
interview on the social and political crisis that has buffeted
France for more than a month. He said that at one point, May
29, "I was tempted to retire."
"And then at the same time I thought that if I left,
the threatening subversion Would flow over and carry away
the republic," he added. "So,
