A NEW COMMUNIQUE from leftist urban guerrillas in Mon-
tevideo, Uruguay increased fear yesterday for the safety of two
kidnapped foreign officials.
The communique set a midnight tonight deadline for the release
of all Uruguay's political prisoners.
The government of Jorge Pacheco Areco had no immediate com-
ment on the message, but up to now it has indicated it was not ready
to negotiate with "the criminals" for the release of the two captives.
SECRETARY OF DEFENSE Melvin Laird said yesterday the
military situation in Cambodia is "better than I had expected it
Laird struck to his position that the primary mission of U.S. war
planes in Cambodia is to destroy North Vietnamese and Viet Cong
supplies and troops.
But without specifically commenting on eyewitness reports that
U.S. aircraft are providing close support of Cambodian troops, the de-
fense chief said once again "there will be ancillary benefits that will,
affect the Cambodian army."
THE FOREIGN MINISTERS of West Germany and the Soviet
Union agreed last night on the text of a treaty aimed at smoothing
relations between the two countries.
A West German delegation spokesman said the treaty will be
initialled this morning.
West German Foreign Minister Walter Scheel was scheduled to
fly back today to Bonn where Chancellor Willy Brandt's Cabinet
will study the text tomorrow. The treaty must be approved by the
Cabinet before it can be signed formally.

AMBASSADOR DAVID K. E. BRUCE was greeted by a bar-
rage of Communist criticism yesterday as he made his bow at the
Paris peace talks with a low-keyed call for moderation in nego-
"Solutions can be found if there is genuine will on both sides to

The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong speakers ignored his plea

ANOTHER BLOODY CLASH erupted yesterday between guer-
rilla groups in Jordan as disputes raged in the Arab world over
Egypt's acceptance of the U.S. Middle East peace plan.
The clash, third in three days, resulted in the death of one com-
mando and the wounding of seven and prompted an emergency meet-
ing of the over-all command of the Palestinian guerrillas in an effort
to stop the fighting before it gets out of control.

WASHINGTON WP)- T h e

board recommendation that the
nation's longest-standing labor
dispute be solved by eliminating
the jobs of most railroad firemen

A White House statement said
that its formula for resolving

In essence, the recommended
settlement would combine the
duties of firemen and brakemen
under a new classification that
rail operators and the union
would agree to.
Under the board's suggestion,
no newly hired rail workers
would be classified as firemen.
However, no currently em-
ployed railroad firemen would be
fired. Rather, the old classifi-

Another key board recom-

rail lines through the proposed
elimination of firemen's jobs
should be shared with rail work-

Speaking of the two partie,
the board said, "They need take
only one small step to conclude
a final and complete agreement,
an agreement that is substan-
tially their own."
Men already holding senority

Judge cont inues
BARNSTABLE, Mass. W) - Marijuana possession
charges against two 16-year-old Kennedy cousins were
continued until September 1971 yesterday by a judge
who said he then would dismiss the case if the youths
keep out of trouble.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and R. Sargent Shriver III were
accompanied by family members and lawyers as they
heard the decision by Judge Henry L. Murphy in a
private session of juvenile court. Both boys were charged
with being delinquent by possession of marijuana in
an incident last July 10.
The judge's action meant there was no ruling of
guilt or innocence in the cases. He said the charges
against the cousins would be dismissed September 16,
1971, "unless they have difficulty of some kind."
Murphy, speaking with reporters in the courtroom
after the hearing, declined further comment, citing state
law requiring secrecy in juvenile court cases.
