H. 18 PAGES Price TEN CENTS Nixon Warns Hanoi By PETER GROSE Miw York Tfmn fanlM WASHINGTON The Administration hu North Vietnam that a continua- tion of this week'i attacki to South Vietnam would mean that the understanding that produced the bombing halt last Nor. 1 had "expired." The tharp reduction in enemj thellingi and ground assaulti la the last 24 houri wai interpreted by high at Wnta-. lively, ai North Vietnam'! positive response to thii wan- ing. The United States mesiage, which did not make specific threat to resume bombardment North Vietnam, was said to have been conveyed through pri- diplomatic contacts short- ly after enemy forces intensi- fied their attacks across South Vietnam last Sunday. Military officials feared the att a c k s might turn into new general offensive. The warning was reportedly repealed in Paris today, at the formal session of peace talks with North Vietnam and the National Liberation Front or Viet Cong. The U. S. Representative, Henry Cabot Lodge, was quoted as telling the enemy side "the, consequences of these attacks are your responsibility." The precise nature of the un- derstanding between the U. S. and North Vietnam, which pres- ident Johnson disclosed in his speech of Oct. 31 announcing the complete bombing halt, has become a point of public dis- pute between Washington and Hanoi, as well as within the U.S. Government. Because of this ambiguity, the Nixon administration withheld an automatic, judgment that the enemy offensive required an'. immediate military response. After a virtually hour-byrhour study of the military action in South Vietnam few days, the administration's hope now is that the diplomatic warning was sufficient and that military retaliation will be un- necessary. The relevant part of the un- derstanding, as stated by John- ton Administration officials at the time of-the bombing halt, was this: "If there were abuses.'. of the demilitarized zone, Viet Cong or North Vietnamese at- tacks on the cities or other populated areas in South Viet- nam, a bombing cessation sim- ply could not be.maintained."
