Special Correspondent WASHINGTON Iff Maxwell D Taylor a top presidential adviser said Tuesday the Communist Viet Cong might be included in a new South Vietna mese government through free elections but he op posed negotiating them into a coalition government Taylor thus seemed to line up conditionally with a position taken Saturday by Sen Robert F Kennedy DNY in saying the United States should admit the Communists and other discontented elements in South Viet Nam into a Saigon government Taylors condition was that such ac tions must follow free elecII I tions Labor and Negro ties are urged MIAMI BEACH Fla AP civil rights leader told AFL CIO leaders there must be a lew era of cooperation between he Negro and the labor move Kennedy himself indicated in an interview in New York this morning that he was talking about a postelectiongovernment when he spoke out Saturday But in his Saturday statement He did not specify elections as a precondition to a Communist share in power His comment today could be construed as nar rowing the earlier gap between him and the Johnson adminis tration Some administration officials believe an effort to construct a bridge between the positions of Kennedy and the Johnson ad ministration on this highly con troversial issue is the reason Taylor has spoken up Taylor is a retired general a former ambassador to Viet Nam a chief architect of ad ministration policy in the war and an adviser with offices across from the White House Monday night that he had endorsed Kennedys propos al to include the Viet Cong in a Saigon government apparent ly without reference to free elec tions indicated a split in the Presidents Viet Nam policy team On Sunday Undersecretary of State George Ball and presiden lial assistant McGeorge Bundy had rejected the Kennedy prop osition Reached at his office Tuesday Taylor gave this explanation o his position Let no one think I favor a coalition government for South Viet he said Let no one think I favor recognition o the Viet Cong But if you reac what Sen Kennedy has saic you will find that he doesnt say those things either This is a question of givin representation to the discontenl ed elements in South Viet Nam
