"The practical steps as well as
the measures announced speak
to the contrary," it said.
The dispatch said Nixan or-
dered the mining of port ap-
proaches and strikes at "inter-
nal waters, rails and roads" in
North Vietnam.
"Nixon has tried to justify
these naked aggressive acts,
which mean an aggravation of
American interference in Viet-
nam and the violation of norms
of international law, as saving
the lives of 60,000 American
soldiers," it declared.
Meanwhile, the North Viet-
namese and the Viet Cong ac-

cused Nixon of presenting an
ultimatum and rejected any
such action, saying they would
fight to the end. I
Mme. Nguyen Thi Binh,
chief Viet Cong negotiator in
Paris, said in a telephone in-
terview recorded by a New York
radio station that Nixon's speech
was "a speech of war" and his
decision would "escalate further-

Britain said the plan offers a

chance for ending the war soon
but stopped short of expressing
support of the plan for mining

Kremlin to help set -up an inter-

the war.
France criticized the new mili-
tary moves and suggested "frank
and courageous negotiations"
were the only way out of the
conflict. Referring to what he
called the present "escalations"
of the war, Foreign Minister
Maurice Schumann said,

Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) read

The report advised Nixon that it
would be next to impossible to

North Vietnam.
The papers were prepared by
Henry Kissinger, Nixon's prin-
cipal foreign-affairs adviser,
from separate assessments made
by the Defense Department,

N.Y. Assembly overturns
liberal abortion law

ALBANY, N.Y. OP)-The New
York State Assembly yesterday
approved a bill to ban abortions
except to save the life of, the
mother, reversing the stand it
took two years ago to allow
abortion virtually on demand.
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, how-
ever, reiterated his determina-
tion to veto any bill repealing
the liberalized law, under which
at least 300,000 abortions have
been performed.
The bill must still be acted on
by the state senate where vig-
orous debate is expected later
this week.
The 79-68 assembly vote fol-
lowed an intense struggle over
the issue, with presidential in-

tervention, demonstrators pro
and con clogging the halls of
the Capitol and a statewide
campaign spearheaded by the
Catholic Church against the lib-
eralized law.
