the same story a ball of fire and then the roof caved in Johnson said This investigation could take as long as three months would be interested in knowing what Hanoi would say Ht made point that the posi ion of Communist North Viet Nam has toughened recently Rusk was asked whether the United Slates would accept a proposal from Hanoi through UN SecretaryGeneral U Thant seeking unconditional discus sions In reply Rusk referred io a statement made by Hanoi and said I wouldnot predict that this is likely to occur The Hanoi statement declared that some American newspa pers had the invention that

he wanted reassignment to Viet Nam he said I think that is where a sol dier should be If you are in the service of your country and you believe in its ideals I think you should serve where your coun ry needs you Leveringer said it was not an easy matter to get his reassign ment approved by his superiors He said someone whom did not want to identify wrote to resident Johnson in his behalf two or three times but that those proposals have been re jected by the Johnson adminis tration In a Hanoi broadcast the North Vietnamese paper Hnan Dan said This deceitful trick was aimed at two goals On one hand criticizing the John son clique in preparing for forthcoming elections and on the other hand inventing the story of the socalled proposals by Hanoi to negotiate to sow suspicion among public opin ion The North Vietnamese de clared the Johnson administra tions desire for peace was brazen and deceitful Rusk said he had the impres sion in recent weeks that the North Vietnamese were moving toward demands for the remov al of US forces from South Viet Nam as a precondition for peace He explained US policy this way are prepared for discus sions without conditions without preconditions But we are not going to promise in advance or at any time that we are going to give away the basic interests of the South Vietnamese people and South Viet Nam and the interests of the US when we go into such discussions The other side is not going to do that He said that the problem is to find out whether peace is possi ble given the attitudes the in terests and the commitments of the Communist and nonCom munist sides Rusk conceded that the prob lem of Viet Nam had put a chill into USSoviet relations and he expressed hope that Moscow will find a way to ease off on matters of this sort and not let the obviously difficult questions in Southeast Asia affect unduly the necessity for these two great powers to find some basis to get along with each other SAME flltek Traffic Realk hi rail 31 Honri
