George E. Reedy, presidential press secretary, made these points Wednesday after UN. Secretary-General U Thant said in New York that had made concrete proposals aimed at negotiated settlement o{ Vietnamese war. France the and the Soviet Union are also seek- ing such an agreement. But Reedy said: "I know of no specific proposal for negotiation that has been made to this gov- ernment." President Johnson Is known to feel that, at this stage, there is no evidence that the Chinese and North Vietnamese Commu- nists are interested in serious talks on Viet Nam.

Huge snow drifts, piled up by winds up to 50 ra.p.h., blanketed hundreds of highways from Ten- nessee to Michigan. The cold front spread through (he East and South and many munltles paralyzed. La Salle, points reported falling barome- ters, heavy rains and wind gusts up to 60 m.p.h. Eight inches of new snow bat- tered Kentucky and 53 of the state's 120 counties ordered schools closed.

And Reedy noted: "This mat tcr would be terminated very quickly if aggressors would cease their aggressions.' The U.S. position appeared to be that, in the absence of real hopes for negotiations now, the anti-Communist position should be strengthened as much as possible with an eye toward talks sometime in the future. This was underscored by the news from South Viet Nam that American-manned jet bomKvs had taken part in several raids on Viet Cong positions in the key central region of South Viet Nam. This broadening of the U.S. role, in a land where some 000 American personnel are functioning officially as "advis- ers" to South Vietnamese forces, was described by the Slate Department as "in ac- cordance with the government's Knowlei was known lo have stated policy of continuous ac- thei proposal ready for presen-, Ution to lawmakers.

Wisconsin now has a torse per cent sales tax on selected items and the governor's pro- posal would extend the levy to all purchases and services short of food, clothing and pre- scription drugs. To make the sales tax exten- sion more acceptable to a Dem- ocratic controlled Assembly, the governor will ask that (he sales tax rate be cut to 2.5 per cent. revenue from the sales tax extension would come to million in the biennium. Another million in new revenue would be netted through a one-fifth of one per cent increase in state income tax rates. The increase would be applied across the board. An additional penny a pack tax on cigarettes would yield million. State DST Bill Is Sidetracked ST.

Federal Grand Jury Re-indicts Communist Party WASHINGTON f AP) A fed- eral jrrand jury re-indicted the U.S. Communist party today for failing to register as a Commu nist-action organization. In an attempt to avoid a pit- fall that led to a Court of Ap- peals reversal of a previous party conviction on the same charge, the grand jury specifi- cally charged that the party failed to register even though it was aware that a person was available and willing to register on behalf of the party. 5 Sound Like 50 There isn't actually a population explosion.
