House said yesterday there may
be a need for additional con-
sultations with the North Viet-
namese beyond the "one more"
negotiating session outlined last
month by presidential adviser
Henry Kissinger.
Presidential press secretary
Ronald Ziegler told newsmen he
could not confirm nor deny that
Kissinger and chief North Viet-
namese negotiator Le Duc Tho
would meet this week in Paris.
But if and when such a session
takes place, Ziegler said, "there
will be further consultations re-
quired" with South Vietnam and
perhaps Hanoi.
Ziegler told reporters also that
Gen. Alexander Haig, Kissing-
er's deputy, brought a letter to
President Nixon from S o u t-h
Vietnamese President Nguyen
Van Thieu when he returned
from Saigon yesterday. Ziegler
confirmed also that Haig went
to Saigon last week carrying a
Nixon letter addressed to Thieu.
The spokesman would not dis-
close the contents of either mes-
sage, but American officials in
Saigon indicated Haig's four days
in the South Vietnamese capital
apparently cleared the way for a
resumption of the Kissinger-Tho
The main purpose of Haig's mis-
sion was believed to be to offer
reassurances to Thieu that the
United States would maintain
diplomatic and material support
for him after the ceasefire went
into effect.
President Thieu has been insist-
ing that North Vietnam explicit-
ly or implicitly agree to remove

its troops from South Vietnam
and also wants iron-clad assur-
ances that the proposed national
council for reconciliation a n d

fire draft to prepare elections
in South Vietnam - is not viewed
as a coalition government, with
communist participation, in Sai-

and President Chung Hee Park

Camp David for more than a
week to review Vietnam develop-
ments and also to continue his

Mafia figures indicted

ll l


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Three
underworld figures who played key
roles at a Mafia headquarters in a
Brooklyn junkyard have been ar-
rested in a major crackdown on
New York's organized crime,
Brooklyn District Attorney Eugene
Gold said yesterday.
The men, tracked down by a
young detective who pretended to
cooperate with them, face charges
of bribery, relony, and conspiracy
which could put each one of them
in jail for a total of 129 years, if
convicted on all counts.
All the indictments announced
yesterday were said to be a direct
result of Gold's probe into organ-
ized crime revealed last month
when police began a massive oper-
ation to serve subpoena notices on
677 underworld figures compelling
them to appear before a grand

Meanwhile Mafia leaders were
maneuvering to escape the drag-
net by using a young detective
whom they thought they "owned,"
today's press conference was told.
The detective, Douglas Levien,
had made contact with key men at
the junkyard Mafia headquarters
by pretending to cooperate in a
stolen cars racket.
He became friendly with the
three men arrested yesterday -
Paul Vario, an alleged consigliere
(counselor) to the Carmine Tra-:
munti Mafia "family", C 1 y d e'
Brooks, and Norris Rubin, both
alleged close associates of Vario.

LONDON - Representatives of
79 countries pledged yesterday
not to dump oil, mercury and cad-
mium compounds, germ warfare
material, or highly radioactive
wastes into the ocean.
The convention takes effect
next year on ratification of the
signatory countries. The meth-
ods of policing the treaty will be
decided then. It is expected,
however, that a supervisory com-
mission will be set up.
A "Grey list" requiring special
permits for dumping includes ar-

senic, lead, copper, zinc and
their compounds: cyanides, fluor-
ides and other pesticides not on
the black list; bulky metal ob-
jects or containers likely to pre-
sent fishing or navigation obsta-
cles; and radioactive materials
not blacklisted.
Many delegates viewed the
agreement as a compromise and
not the ultimate answer to ma-
rine pollution. A Belgian dele-
gate called it "a step in the
right direction."
An escape clause allows the
bans to be disregarded in "an
