"There are positive indica- tions that we arc making progress toward a just peace in the the secretary said at Sadat's residence outside Cairo. Kissinger also announced he would return to the Middle East the first week of November, fol- lowing visits to Kussia for nu- clear arms talks and the Indian subcontinent. After his talks with Sadat, Kissinger flew tn Damascus for talks with Syrian Presidcni Assad and later flew to Algeria. Sadat, the key leader in Kis- singer's Middle East diplomacy, seemed to be walking on eggs as he agreed to take the initia- tive at me Arab summit in Morocco on Oct. 26. "All Concerned" Asked about the prospect of Palestinian participation in fu- ture Geneva peace talks, Kis- singer said, "Negotiations be- tween Jordan and Israel should start first. But as I have pointed o u t previously, negotiations should include all the parties concerned.' A key goal of Kissinger's cur- rent trip has been to initiate separate Israeli-Egyptian and Israeli-Jordanian talks rather than to press for a full-scale Geneva parley. Newsmen tra- veling with Kissinger were 'told Sunday the secretary hopes to have new peace negotiations under way by the end of the year.

In Trouble Meanwhile, several lawmak- ers said Rockefeller's nomina- tion may be in trouble and Rep. Drinan (D-Mass.) said he will join with a number of other congressmen in a bid to have President Ford withdraw the nomination. At his Wcslchester county, N.Y., estate, Rockefeller insist- ed he had responded thoroughly to all questions asked by con- [ressional committees about gifts he made to public officials and associates between 1957 and 1974.
