I ew briefs
By The Associated Press
W. AVERELL HARRIMAi said after a meeting yesterday
with Soviet foreign minister Andrei Gromyko that the Soviets
are willing to help arrange an Indochina settlement.
"I think they will help'us if they can," said the former chief
U.S. delegate to the Paris peace talks. But he contended there has
been no role for them to play since President Nixon took office because
"there have been no serious talks" since then.

BARNADO SIMPSON, a former rifleman who said he killed
at least 10 My Lai villagers on orders of his own platoon leader
refused yesterday to testify at Lt. William L. Cafley Jr.'s court-
He invoked the Fifth Amendment almost as soon as he took the
witness stand for the defense.
Simpson, 23, of Jackson, Miss., in interviews and statements, has
admitted killing Vietnamese, including a woman and a child, as a
member of Charlie Company's 2nd Platoon during an assault on My
Lai March 16, 1968.
He has quoted the company commander, Capt. Ernest L. Medina,
as directing in a preassault briefing that his men "kill everything in
the village-men, women, children, cats and dogs."
YOUNGER HOUSE DEMOCRATS are planning an attack
next week on the seniority system which would unseat most pre-
sent committee chairmen within two years.
They will propose setting a 70-year age limit for chairmen and
limiting chairmen of any age to four terms at the head of a committee,
with both changes to take effect in 1973.
If they succeed-and the odds are against them-there would be
a wholesale uprooting of chairmen in the 93rd Congress, with 11 being
forced out by the age limit and three more by the time limit. Only
three chairmen of major committees would survive.

WASHINGTON (iA-Four Catholic priests, a former priest,
and a nun yesterday denied federal charges that they had
-plotted to kidnap presidential advisor Henry Kessinger and
bomb heating tunnels in Washington, D.C. yesterday.
The Rev. Philip Berrigan, and the four others declared
that charges were a government attempt to discredit oppo-
sition to the Vietnam war.
Berrigan, 47, the alleged mastermind of the plot, and five
others were indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Har-
risburg, Pa.

LONDON (A-TIhe British gov-
ernment ordered tightened securi-
ty at the homes of all Cabinet
ministers yesterday following an
attempt at thq first political mur-
der of a British government min-
ister in more than 150 years.
Two time bombs-regarded' by
police as an assassination attempt
--exploded late Tuesday night at
the home of Employment Minis-
ter Robert Carr. The minister and
his family escaped injury.
But the attempt alone was
enough to produce an outraged
reaction across this nation that
prides itself on traditions of free
and reasoned debate and an ab-
horrence of political violence.
No political leader has been
murdered in England since Spen-
cer Perceval was shot dead in
Prime Minister Edward Heath,
attending a Commonwealth prime
ministtrs' meeting in Singapore,
was among the'first to express re-
lief that the Carrs had escaped
injury. Heath cabled a personal
message to Carr.
Last month on a visit to the
White House, Heath told Ameri-
can officials London was so peace-
ful that he could leave his Down-
ing Street residence for evening
walks through nearby St. James
Park without any worries about
his safety.
Officials here Would give no
details, but such strolls are likely
to be guarded now under the se-
curity precautions announced in
the House of Commons by Home
Secretary Reginald Maudling.
Squads of police questioned
known extremists and political
militants during the night. Police
said the bombs, made of gelignite,
were set off by acid fuses timed to
go off 30 to 60 minutes after the
bombs were left.
