State Department Reforms Launched by GOP Leaders By PETER GROSE York TimM Nlwi WASHINGTON The Repub- lican leadership has started1 a series of reforms in the State Department where President Nixon promised voters last year that he would make a thorough housecleamng" But instead of the partisan political purge implied in some c a hi p a i statements, this week's reorganization measures look more .like: the sort of re- 'forms that professionals of the Foreign Service themselves have been urging. The opening move in the re- form, came four days ago in a formal two page memorandum from Under Secretary of State Elliot L. Richardson to the As- sistant Secretaries .and other bureau chiefs of the department. He instructed; them to.

One purpose behind this move is to give the Secretary of State the bureaucratic machinery necessay for him to carry out his legal responsibility of coordi- nating US foreign operations; rather than letting this function fall by default to the smaller National Security Council. staff at the While headed by. presidential assistant Henry A.

GRAY WASHINGTON (AP) Both Congress and the White Houst appear willing to close tht Pueblo case along .lines set by the secretary of the Navy: no punishments but no of innocence. And- the principal figurt, Cmdr. Lloyd said' was satisfied with that outcome. Time and more current, pressing concerns have dissipat- ed most of the high feeling that once prompted congressional demands for fixing the blame in the capture of the U.S. ship by North Korea more than U months ago.- Navy Secretary John H. Chafee said Tuesday he was re- jecting recommendations of a Navy court of inquiry for disci- plinary moves that would have included a general court martial for Bucher, the ship's captain, and Lt. Stephen R. Harris, who commanded the ship's intelli- gence unit. Chafee said there would be no punishment for any Navy per- sonnel connected with the inci- dent. Key congressional- figures case indicated they accepted Chafee's decision. .Sen. John Stennis, D-Miss., chairman of the Senate Armed Services. Committee, saw, no firm reason for pursuing the case further. Rep. Otis Pike, D-N.Y., chair- mari.of a House.Armed Services subcommittee that investigated the Pueblo, backed Chafee. "The.

"It wouldn't have been fair to punish or admonish, the juniors in gone across the board to the joint Russell said. Sen. Peter Domihick, R.-Colo.. issued lie only congressional call for pressing the case. But he said his concern was 'actions of the personnel in- volved but "the question of tht breakdown In communications." Dominick, who had long held the Navy wiSs trying to make Bucher a scapegoat, said the re- commendations of the court of inquiry were "simply ridicu- lous." crashes of fixed-wing U.S. spoksmen say they caii give no particular reason for tht recent large losses of helicop- ters, but they cite the "enormity of the operation."

They explained that the only limitation in Vietnam is the pair- load, and that the Chinook can lift up to pounds, depend- ing on how much fuel it is car- rying and the distance it has to travel.
