Emerging from the negotia- tions between the Transit Au- thority and the striking unions, Mayor John V. Lindsay report- ed: "There has been some move- ment, nevertheless the gap re- mains wide between them. New offers have been made. Lindsay declined to predict if this could lead to settlement of the six-day-old strike of bus and subway workers, but he de- scribed the new offers as very important move." Negotiators for the Transit Authority and the striking Transport Workers Union and Amalgamated Transit Union, both AFL-CIO, plan to get back to work the first thing today. Lindsay, vowing to stick with the negotiators until they come to terms, said he would join them as soon as he cleared up some city business. In New York's five boroughs, and from Connecticut to New Jersey, people bound for work cut short their sleep to face an- other long day of fighting the traffic and crowded railroad facilities. One thing that has been con- tributing to the prevention of chaos In the strike has been that the morning and evening rush houn have been spread out over! a longer period of time. Traffic Commissioner Henry A. Barnes announced a plan Wednesday for staggered work- ing hours in lower Manhattan.

"I am satisified from my own personal observation that both parties were in hard bargaining." He refused to say what offers had been made by the opposing sides. "That was desired by both he said. Pre- viously, the unions had demand- ed ?216 million in higher wages and benefits and the Transit Authority had offered a mlllion package. Lindsay said he had no idea whether Michael J.

The Kremlin apparently hopes to outbid Ked Chinese influence in the North Vietnamese capital with more economic and mili- tary assistance. Some Western governments were hopeful also that Shelepin would encourage Ho Chi Minh's regime to negotiate for peace in Viet Nam. He is the No. 2 man in the Soviet Communist party under Chairman Leonid F. Bre- zhnev.

Edgar Hoover said today the Communist party has played an ever-increasing role in generating opposition to the U. S. position in Viet Nam. Hoover said also that the par- ty is trying to attract more youth and is making plans to take a more active part in the 1966 elections, running candi- dates wherever possible. In his annual report to the attorney general on FBI activi- ties during 1965, Hoover said: "Always eager to engage in any activity which will bring embarrassment to the United States, the party has played an ever-increasing role in generat- ing opposition to the United States position in Viet Nam. "In September 1965, party headquarters sent a directive to all districts giving instructions on slogans to be used in protests against United States action in Viet Nam. In addition, the party has expended large sums of money in propaganda efforts (CONTimrED ON PAGE FIVE) As Paratroopers Push Into Delta Terrorists Strike Twice In Saigon SAIGON, South Viet Nam troops and U.S. planes knocked out hidden Viet Cong installations in widely sep- arated areas in the past 48 hours, but the Communists struck back tonight with two terrorist attacks in Saigon.
