party organ Nhan Dan branded the current US peace moves as trickery and said hat if any political solution to hc Viet Nam war is to be achieved the United States must halt definitely and uncondi ionally all acts of war against the North The Hanoi newspaper also said Washington would have to acknowledge the four conditions he Communists have set down or an end to the war What was meant by

sell aluminum from the trovernment stockpile and thus forced a rollback of an an nounced aluminum price in crease Later the Defense Depart ment used its considerable weight to discourage a price

Bethlehems increase unwar ranted and said it could lead to inflation But Edmund F Martin chair man of secondranking Bethle hem said in a statement Sun Pope Paul VI sends peace appeal to LBJ day night the threedayold price hike was a result of product improvements that en able lighterweight steel to do heavier jobs After the price adjust ments Martin said the cost of equivalent steel framing for structures will be less than five years ago This is not inflation ary Government sources indicated Sunday thata cutback of feder al purchases from Bethlehem may be forthcoming if the com pany refuses
