H. 24 PAGES TEN COfTt Cong Hits U. S. By RODNEY ANGOVE PARIS (AP) A rep- resentative of, the Viet Cong accused the United States today of spreading rumors about private Viet- nam peace talks in an ef- fort to calm antiwar senti- ment at home. 'Perfidious Than Buu Kiem, spokesman for the Viet Cong's National Lib- eration Front, told the 12th full- session of the Vietnam peace talks, that the reports of private meetings were part of a "perfidious maneuver" to make the public believe the Nixon ad- ministration has a program for a peaceful settlement. The United States continued to hammer at the presence of North Vietnamese forces in the South and to seek discussions on a mutual withdrawal of forces. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge insisted that the withdrawal of the North Vietnamese "military and subversive forces" was one of the crucial issues to be dealt with. Kiem did not specifically deny that private contacts are taking place in Paris and elsewhere. But his continued attack on se- cret talks dimmed the likelihood ,of any such discussions least as far as the Viet Cong is concerned. Lodge told the North Viet- namese that their demand for the unilateral withdrawal of U.S. forces "is not realistic." He presented detailed evidence to back his contention that North Vietnamese .forces were in the South in substantial num- bers. He cited specifically the 95th and 101st regiments of the North Vietnamese army. "For our he said, "we have made clear our willingness to begin the withdrawal of U.S. and allied forces simultaneously with the withdrawal of North Vietnamese forces." It was the third straight week that the United States hit it' the North Vietnamese presence in the South and in neighboring Laos and Cambodia. Lodge not- ed this and said for a lasting settlement North Vietnam must be willing "to respect the terri- torial integrity of its neighbors and to respect international frontiers and demarcation lines." "That is he added, "that the United States has called for the restoration of the demilitarized zone. That is why the United States has called upon North Vietnam to respect the 1961 Geneva agreements on Laos and the territorial integri- ty of Cambodia.

(AP) More than 400. club-swinging po- licemen swept 200 protesters out of Harvard's revered University Hall today in a bloody clash that till 3D persons hurt and about 200 under arrest. The h e 1 m e t e d officers stormed through a mass of stu- dents to get inside the hall which had been seized Wednes- day by youths protesting the Harvard Reserve Officer Train- ing Corps (ROTC) program. .Historic Harvard Yard was alive with turmoil. Whistles, yells, jeers and curses reverber- ated through the area as police, in tight formations, swept back and forth in skirmish platoons. Bottles and other objects were hurled at the police, some from neighboring .buildings. Many of those arrested were carried bodily from the hall and thrown into police wagons. Most of the police withdrew within an hour after the rush on the hall. As the officers pulled back, more than young people surged through the Yard to the steps of Memorial Church, where they shouted "Seig Reds Clamp Down On Czech Newsmen By ALVBM SHUSTER Miw Yerk Tlmei Nwn IvnUt PRAGUE Communist Party proceedings are expected to begin today against progressive writers and editors who face either repri- mand or expulsion from the par- These art the first such hear- ings to be held here aince Alex- ander Dubcek, the party chief, came to power 15 months ago to begin the Czech liberalization movement. The liberalism later fell victim to the Soviet-led inva- sion of Czechoslovakia last Au- gust and the subsequent return to conservative communism. At least a dozen journalists understood to hive been told to come before the party's control commission, presided over by Mi- las Jakes, its 48-year-old man and no favorite of progres- live forces. The hearings are expected to be concluded before the meeting of the Central Committee on April 17. The committee will then act on.the control Commission's rec- ommendations for reprimands or expulsions. Informed sources said the names of those summoned include Alois Svoboda, chief editor of Politika, the suspended weekly of the party; Miroslav Jelinek, the chief editor of Mlada Fronta, the youth newspaper; Ladislav Velen- sky, the chief editor of Prace, Die trade union newspaper; Milan Jungman, the chief editor of Lis- ty, a cultural and political week- ly; Ludvik Vaculik, an editor of Listy, and Michal Lakatos, an editor of Zitrek, another weekly which suspended publication aft- er the government announced res- toration last week of pre-publica- tion censorship. It is generally assumed among editors here that reprimand or ouster from the party would mean removal of the chief edi- tors from their posts. They may, howeyer, be permitted to take lesser jobs on their publications. "On strike, shut it and "Pusey must go." The last was a reference to Dr. Natham M. Pusey, Har- vard's president. The number of those inside University Hall had dwindled to about 100 during the early morning hours, but one student leader said the figure swelled to between 150 and 200 with word that the police were arriving. Editor Injured Colin Leinster, education edi- tor for Life magazine, was among those injured. Leinster said .he "was clubbed from be- hind by state police" as he stood taking notes on the steps of University Hall. "I spent two years in our Saigon bureau and never got a he said. "I've just been back here a month." Another.of those injured was David Geddes, a Harvard fresh- man. "I was standing on the top row of steps when the police came in from the Geddes said. "They started piling in and came over iho edge of the steps with those big baseball bat sticks. One of them clubbed me on the head and I fell down the stairs, getting clubbed all the time." The police piled into the Yard smoothly, and within minutes formed a large rectangle in Tercentenary Theatre, that por- tion of the yard traditionally used for graduation ceremonies. They advanced on the hall quickly, driving up the steps and inside in a matter of sec- onds. Later, after the bulk of the po- lice force withdrew, a fight broke out between several dozen students and about 30 Cam- bridge policemen. The students broke ranks and ran as the police, standing back-to- back in a tight circle, began lashing out with their clubs. One student was left facp-dswr1. in the grass. The takeover of the hall was led by the Students for a Demo- cratic Society They carried one dean out bodily, and ejected several oth- ers including Dean of the Facul- ty Franklin L. Ford. Six Demands The demonstrators issued a list of six demands, .including the one for abolition of Har- vard's HOTC program. Some of the others were tied to the ROTC demand, while the rest called for a reduction of rents for Harvard-owned build- ings and abandonment of what the students described as a plan to tear down houses and apart- ments for a medical school ex- pansion and construction of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Li- brary. Pusey said in a statement that he could not take the demands seriously. "How can one respond to alle- gations which have no basis in the university president asked. Pusey than gave the demon- strators an up their occupation or face arrest. The police moved into action at 5 a.m., 12 hours after the ulti- matum deadline. After Wednesday's University Hall seizure, about stu- dents gathered outside the hall. Many jeered those inside, and some carried signs reading "SDS does not represent Har- vard" and "SDS must go."

The allegation was made by Londonderry Selectmen Albert Johnson and Charles DeCato, when the authority approved sale of the land to Gerald Q. Nash, Samuel A. Tamposi, Nashua de- velopers, and John Pearson of Merrimack. Purchase price was set at 000 or approximately per acre. Mills pointed out that such an authority is established by state law as a non-profit agency and it cannot speculate with any of its holdings 'and cannot sell to specu- lators. Johnson, chairman of the se- lectmen, said he did not know of any place where industrial land sells as low as He said there are standing of- fers of an acre for the land at Grenier Field which the LHRA has declined. If the town had held on to the land, he added, it might have re- ceived as much as an acre. Part of Parcel The land is part of a 275-acre parcel and 100 buildings at Gren- ier Field acquired by the LHRA from the federal government in 1968 for "The purpose of the LHRA, as voted by the people of London- derry and as outlined by law, is to return to the tax rolls property which has been lost to the town for nearly 30 years, to encourage industry for a firmer tax base. and to provide Mills said. He said the law further states than an authority must sell at a price reflecting the actual value of the land but low enough so that the purchaser can afford to de- velop it. According to Billiard and Mills, the recently sold land is marginal in value. It is roughly triangular in shape, resembling an irregular wedge of pie. The short side of the triangle is bounded by the clear, zone to the Manchester Airport, that is by the cleared section of land along Harvey Road which is immedi- ately south of the runway. The bounds of the property are ap- proximately along the line of trees beyond the cut-over section. One of the long sides is bound- ed by the Perimeter Road, but between it and the road lies Little Cohas Brook. This is but a few feet wide in places, but in other places stretches wider. Mills said that in order to gain access to the property, a bridge must be built across this brook. The terrain is rough and full of deep gullies, he said, and it has no road, water, sewer or electric power. Standing (Her Askedrif the LHRA had a stand- ing offer of per acre for land within the complex, Mills said the authority had such an offer for one of the best loca- tions it owns.
