Kissinger also announced he would return to the Middle East the first week of November, following visits to Russia for nuclear arms talks and the Indian subcontinent. After his talks with Sadat, Kissinger flew to Damascus for talks with Syrian President Assad and later flew to Algeria. Sadat, the key leader in Kissinger’s Middle East diplomacy, seemed to be walking on eggs as he agreed to take the initiative at the Arab summit in Morocco on Oct. 26. “AII Concerned” recall Mr. Rockefeller,” said a press secretary for Sen. Cannon (D-Nev.), chairman of the panel. “More than likely, questioning will be on the gifts and the book.” Cannon also was quoted by the aide. Barbara Dahlke, as saying the committee would not vote on confirmation before December. In Trouble Meanwhile, several lawmakers said Rockefeller’s nomination may be in trouble and Rep.

Alexander Haig receiving two for heroism in in separate commands at the same time and in the same battle. Haig, former White House chief of staff who was recently named supreme allied commander in Europe, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) for heroism as a battalion commander during thc Battle of Ap Gu on March 31 and April I, 1967. He also was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (DFG) for actions as a brigade commander during the same battle. In a statement Sunday night, Ll. Gen. James Hollingsworth said he was responsible for recommending both awards. At the time, he said, he was assistant division commander of the First infantry division, and the senior eyewitness. “The DFG was for the air mobile assault and the action pertaining to Gen. Haig’s acts in his attempts to save tho life of his reconnaissance platoon leader and subsequent action in the extraction of his dead lieutenant and wounded enlisted men.” Hollingsworth said, adding that this occurred the afternoon of March 31 He recommended Haig for the DSC “as a result of his extraordinary heroism in command of the first Twenty-sixth infantry (brigade)” on the morning of April I, Hollingsworth said. When ho submitted the recommendation. Hollingsworth said, “I most likely lumped the times together, ie, 31 March through I April . . . Most of the recommendations in the field are written by hand, as was the case here, and I can see wherein the rear area clerk could very well confuse the dates.” The Daily Oklahoman re ported the conflicting decorations in its Sunday editions. It said Haig was awarded the DEC for actions as a brigade commander although he did not become brigade commander until afterward and never left the ground during the time claimed in thc citation An anni spokesman said Haig’s command changed from battalion commander to brigade commander at IO a rn. April I Hollingsworths statement said Haig was airborne over the battle most of the afternoon of March 31 and that his helicopter was shot and crashlanded in the middle of the fight. “The crash marked thc end of the exploits” for which Hollingsworth recommended Haig receive the DFG, toe .statement said, adding that Haig then joined his battalion on the ground and organized its defense. “Action is under way to correct the administrative error in the wording of the citation of tho DKC,’ the statement said. “Department of the army awards jwlicy permits the approval of separate awards for separate acts of achievement or valor, each of which may occur within a short period of time during a sustained action or combat operation ” Haig's DFG was awarded May 29. 1966, the day he relinquished his Vietnam command to return to thc U.S. for assignment as a regimental commander and later deputy commandant of the U.S. military Academy at West Point, N Y. Despite the clerical error, Haig understood the events for which they were awarded. He said on Saturday, prior to Hollingsworth's explanation, that he considered the DSC an award for actions only on April I. “The first is where the big battle took place. I consider I got the award for the 1st. not the 31st The 31st was a meeting engagement . . . although it was an important day, it was not the battle. The battle took place un the 1st of April.’ | livan continued hosting several j specials a year. Sullivan, born in Manhattan and raised in Port Chester, N Y., began Ins newspaper career 53 years ago as a $10-a-wcek reporter on the Port Chester Daily Item. He drifted into sporewriting and started his Broadway column in 1931 on tile : now-defunct New York Journal American. Even at the height of his television success, lie continued writing his syndicated “Little Old New York” column, which in recent years ran twice a week. His last column was in Monday’s editions of thc New York Daily News. ED SULLIVAN ;
