There is music, food and some-

AFL-CIO to sit

union boss says
WASHINGTON (N-AFL-CIO President George Meany
led the big labor federation to the political fence yesterday
to sit out this year's White House election race between
President Nixon and Democratic nominee George McGovern.
"I will not vote for either one of them," said the 77-
year-old labor patriarch, backed up by a vote of the AFL-
CIO's executive council.
"I'm disappointed," McGovern said when he returned
from a horseback ride near Custer, S.D., to learn the news.
"I frankly don't want to feud with President Meany. I'm
confident the leaders of the rank-and-file of many indi-
vidual unions will go ahead and endorse us."
His vice presidential running mate, Sen. Thomas Eagle-
ton of Missouri, voiced simi-
lar hopes in Washington. *

Presidential adviser Henry
Kissinger met with Hanoi Polit-
buro member Le Duc Tho yes-
terday in the 14th round of
secret talks Kissinger has held
with the North Vietnamese
leaders in an effort to end the
Vietnam war.
Kissinger returned to Washing-
ton late last night for secret
meetings with the President.
According to White House Press
Secretary Ron Ziegler further
meetings between Kissinger and
Le Duc Tho "will be announced
as they are held."
Meanwhile, the South Vietna-
mese army claimed to have re--
pulsed Communist infantry at-
tacks on Quang Tri, as ARVN
paratrooper units continued to
advance toward the provincial
capital's old walled Citadel.. ,
By late yesterday afternoon,
some airborne units were re-
ported within 50 yards of the
19th century fortress, which is
filled with North Vietnamese
gun emplacements.
The secret peace meeting, in
Paris, was announced imme-
diately in simultaneous com-
muniques by both sides. It was

preceded by speculation, that
blossomed as soon as Kissinger
dropped from public view in the
United States.,
No details of the tone or
substance of the talks were re-
leased, and there was no indi-
cation how the discussions
might affect the 151st meeting
of the semi-public peace con-
ference, scheduled for tomor-
The semi-public conference
resumed last Thursday 'after a
ten-week break, the longest
ever. The United States had
refused to attend the sessions
until the Communist side start-
ed "serious negotiations."
There was no sign of any sig-
nificant shifts last Thursday in
the semi-public sessions, in
which texts of the delegation
speeches are issued to newsmen.
and spokspersons hold briefings
In Washington, Senate ma-
jority leader Mike Mansfield
said yesterday that with the
secret peace talks underway,
he will hold off pushing for a
Senate vote on his end-the-war

He said that since Kissinger
was meeting in the talks, he
was "willing to wait a couple of
days to give Mr. Kissinger an-
opportunity to work out a sat-
isfactory settlement."
A negotiated settlement of the
war, if possible, "would be the
most satisfactory conclusion,"
Mansfield said.
He said Kissinger should be
given "all possible flexibility."
But Mansfield said that if noth-
ing conclusive is forthcoming,
he will press ahead with his ef-
forts to win approval of his
amendment to a foreign aid
authorization bill.
The bill, as approved by the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, includes Mansfield's
amendment, but action on the
measure has been stalled since
early last month by senators
seeking to delete or modify it.
The amendment provides for
withdrawal of U.S. ground
troops from South Vietnam by
August 31, without any condi-
tions, and a halt to all U. S.
military operations in Indochina
once North Vietnam agrees to
a cease-fire and the release of
American prisoners of, war.
