THE MICHIGA"'t C,%ILY
EXPRESSES OPTIMISM ON MID-EAST
i*.. %Kissinge vows no Viet bombing
By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger told a
news conference yesterday that
a war powers bill which allows
President Nixon to order U.S.
troops into action for up to
90 days does not open the way
to renewed American military in-
tervention in Indochina.
Kissinger also said the U.S.
would consider, though extreme-
ly reluctantly, the permanent
stationing of U.S. and Soviet
troops to enforce a Middle East
Speaking in Washington, he
said State Department legal ad-
visers had undertaken the study
to determine whether the War
Powers Bill might have super-
seded earlier legislation which
prohibited all direct U.S. mili-
tary activity in North and SGuth
Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
SINCE THE WAR Powers Bill
was passed after the so-called
Cooper-Church law, which pra-
hibits all U.S. military activity
in Indochina, the State Depart-
ment started the study to see
whether a loophole had been
created for renewed U.S. mili-
Kissinger said the State De-
partment's legal adviser n a d
concluded the War Powers Bill
did not supersede any existing
He said the Nixon Administra-
tion would have to seek congre-
sional approval if it decided that
renewed American involvement
in Vietnam was warranted by
continuing violations of the cease-
ADDRESSING THE news con-
ference held at the State De-
partment, Kissinger said, when
asked about the possibility of
a joint U.S.-Soviet force; "We
do not rule it out :otaily but we
are reluctant to get into this.
"We are prepared to consider
the question of guarantees ;n
its broadest sense and we are
willing to examine any of the
ideas that the parties may put
forward as to adequate guar
"As to the permanent station-
ing of U.S. and Soviet forces in
the Middle East, we are some-
what dubious," he said, "we do
not rule it out totally but we
are reluctant to get into this."
THE UNITED STATES h a s
previously rejected participa-
tion by U.S. and Soviet mili-
tary forces in the Middle East
Some State Department offic-
ials have hinted recent; that
the current U.S. position is zo

ing a ceasefire that might be
acceptable to the Arabs and
Kissinger said he was setting
out for crucial negotiations on
U.S. relations with Europe and
peace in the Middle Eas? and is
hopeful of success in both areas.
IN SPITE OF recent flare-
ups in the Middle East, "the fact
is that we consider i: extreme-
ly probable that the (Geneva
peace) conference will begin on
December 18," he said.
Although difficulties exist in
U.S. relations with its Euro-
pean partners, he will be attend-
ing a NATO ministerial meeting
in Brussels next week "not . .

Kissinger said: "We do not be-
lieve that the ceasefire will come
apart and that the conference wi1l

GIA NGHIA, South Vietnam
(P) - North Vietnamese troops
yesterday routed a government
outpost near the overrun town
of Kien Duc, field reports said.
Kien Duc residents have fled
by the thousands to this pro-
The Communists threatened
new and heavier attacks in the
lowercentral highlands, where
the earlier attacks took place.
But they denied charges by gov-
ernment officials that they in-
tend to launch an offensive to
seize control of South Vietnam.
Field reports said two platoons
of government militiamen -
eabout Otroopst-pulled out after
the attack by tank-led Commun-
ist troops at the post, less than
five miles southwest of Kien Duc.
SOUTH VIETNAMESE Al Sky-
raider bombers and FS jets
pounded North Vietnamese posi-
tions around Kien Duc, which
was overrun Tuesday. Gia Nghia
is 15 miles east of Kien Duc and
90 miles northeast of Saigon.
By Thursday, the population of
Gia Nghia had expanded to
more than 10,000, double its nor-
mal size, because of the influx
of refugees from Kien Duc, most
of them Montagnard tribesmen.
Officials estimated 2,000 more
refugees were still on the road or
in the jungles.
MANY OF the Montagnards
are refugees twice over. They
fled earlier fighting at Dak
Song a month ago, streaming
southward to Kien Due.
Reports said a division of
South Vietnamese infantrymen,
up to 10,000 troops, faced a
North Vietnamese division at a
point about three miles east of
