WASHINGTON - Top-level sparks flew after wires crossedj

to the challenge politely in a telegram saying, "It is with some
surprise, yet with great anticipation, that I accept your kind
invitation to meet with you in a series of nationally-televised
debates financed by the affluent McGovern campaign." Demo-
cratic National Chairman Lawrence O'Brien muttered some-
thing about MacGregor's "flippant response" demeaning the
purpose of serious political dialogue.

Thieu to reject
interim peace,

n rr a nr* r. n re ir~r r -



From Wire Service Reports
In an apparent effort to dampen speculation about a
possible Vietnam settlement, a leading Saigon newspaper
yesterday reported that South Vietnam's President Nguyen
Van Thieu continues to reject any proposals related to an
interim peace agreement.
The report came as Thieu was completing his fourth
day of talks with U. S. presidential adviser Henry Kissinger.
According to informed sources, Kissinger's primary goal
in this round of talks is to persuade Thieu to accept some
sort of compromise with the communists, including a possi-
ble coalition government.

The ecology movement doesn'tj

However, at a conference yes-
terday at Michigan State Univer-
sity, more than 80 young Michigan
citizens met to study the concepts
of organization, project planning,
and financing as applied to en-'
vironmental action groups.
Walter Pomeroy, coordinator of
the Michigan Student Environment
Confederation (MSEC), explained
that the idea behind the conference
was "to get people together to ex-
change ideas and see what kindr
of services we can provide to each
Imagination, he told the confer-
ence, is one of the most important
tools available to the environmen-
tally concerned organization.
To illustrate his point, Pomeroy
related a story of a group of stu-
dents who favored more strict
regulation of billboards. They tied
helium balloons to a large bill-
board, he said, and let it float in
the air around the state capitol
on a day when the legislature was }
in session.
Conference participants heaxd
Mike Schechtman, director of the
Ecology Center, list the problems
of funding a non-profit organiza-
"Our expenses come every
month, but our money comes a lit-
tle at a time, so sometimes we're
very fat, and sometime~s we're very
lean," he said. "Right now, we're
very lean."
Schechtman stressed the im-
portance of using fundraising as a
method to acquaint the public with
the purposes of the center.
He mentioned today's center-
sponsored Walk-A-Thon as an ex-
ample of a fund-raising activityx
that also teaches people about eco-
logical problems in the area.
Listeners exchanged their ideas

Such an agreement would prob-
ably involve a cease-fire as well
as a plan that would allow both
sides to occupy the territory they
now hold. It would almost certain-
ly also be dependent on Thieu' s
resignation, a condition on which
the communists have long insisted.
These same sources say Kissing-
er has already reached such an
agreement with the communists.
In contrast with the Saigon
newspaper account, a French pa-
per Friday reported that a peace
settlement would come within the
next ten days. That news was
said to be primarily responsible
for a large rally on the stock mar-
ket, as Dow Jones averages
climbed nearly ten points Friday.
The Saigon paper, Tin Song, said
that afternthree meetings with
Kissinger, the South Vietnamese
told him they reject all temporary
peace solutions such as a partial
cease-fire. Thieu was quoted as
saying any agreement must be a
lasting settlement.
The interim agreement concept
envisions a part-way peace deal,
perhaps before the Nov. 7 U. S.
presidential election, which would
be followed by further negotia-
tions toward a permanent settle-
Other sources also quoted Thieu
as saying he was opposed to any
kind of a limited cease-fire as well
as a tripartite government. He has
insisted that a cease-fire must in-
clude all of Indochina, with all
North Vietnamesetroopswpulling
out of Cambodia and Laos as well
as South Vietnam.
U. S. informants agree that any
announcement of a settlementor
new proposal by the allied side
would come before the Nov. 7 elec-
tion, although the plan itself might
not go into effect until afterward.
U. S.. officials acknowledge that
the election may be responsible
for the intensified negotiations.
Reports circulated by Vietna-
mese sources said the discussions
between Kissinger and Thieu in-
cluded a recent proposal by the
Communists calling for Saigon to
concede about 600 square miles of
territory as "regrouping zones" in
connection with a cease-fire.
Under the plan - which could
not be verified by either U. S. or
South Vietnamese officials-per-

This was the seventh year of the
Triple Fan Fair and chairman Bob
Brosch and his hardworking com-
mittee added a new feature to the
convention-Star Trek.
The guest of honor was the
creator and producer of Star Trek,
Gene Roddenberry. He brought
along with him a number of Star
Trek episodes, including the orig-
inal TV pilot film which was never
shown, starring Jeffrey Hunter as
the commander of the Enterprise.
Roddenberry informed the en-
thusiasticcrowd that theretwas "a
good chance" that there would be
a full length Star Trek movie'
within a year and "if it gets good
crowds, we may see Star Trek on
television soon."
The producer- also said he was
presently working on four science'
fiction television series pilots which
will be shown this year as made-
for-TV movies.
The popularity of the 'now-de-
funct Star Trek was evident every-
where-Star Trek song books, Star
Trek record albums, Star Trek
slides, pictures, drawings, paint-
ings and even Star Trek pillows.

vention was the comics, and the
collectors flooded the swank De-
