Major Banks Raise Top Interest Rates BOSTON (AP) State Street Bank and Trust Co. raised its prime interest rate today to an all-time high'of 854 per cent, fol- lowing the lead of Bankers Trust of New. York. Indications were that New England's other major banks Jsoon would follow suit. i State Street's old prime inter- est interest charged to a bank's biggest and best cus- 7% per cent. Word of the State Street boost came from H.-Frederick Hagemann, chairman of the board. He said lie felt the increase would be beneficial. "Credit should be Hagemann said in a telephone interview, "but only when a bor- rower is willing to pay for it." Asked whether he believed the increase would have detrimen- tal effect on the nation's econo- my, Hagemann replied: "Not at all. In fact, jt may even strengthen it. Previous in- creases in the prime interest rates have shown little or no sign of slowing down the infla- tionary trend." Richard P.

(AP Wirephoto) U. S. Closer To Peace, Says Defense Secretary ByBOBHORTON WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Defense Mel- vln R. Laird declared today President Nixon's decision to pull troops out of Vietnam moves the United States "closer to peace." Arriving from the joint U. S. Vietnamese meeting at Laird said: "I believe we return closer to peace and we now have a program moving forward to change the role of United States forces in Vietnam and in Southeast Asia." Bigger Role The defense chief said he be- lieves the U.S. effort to give South Vietnam a bigger role in the war "will bear fruit" in the coming days. Laird did not identity which units will be the first to leave the war zone. He said that will be decided Thursday by a joint service task force which is being assigned to prepare for the movement of withdrawing units in early July. Other sources indicated the withdrawn troops would not re- turn to this country, but would be held in reserve in such areas as Okinawa and Hawaii, from which they could be rushed back to Vietnam in case .they should be needed. to of The pullout is expected start with the withdrawal several combat battalions or support-type forces. The task force, to convene at the Pacific command in Hawaii, will include representatives of Laird's office and of each of the military services, and air and sea transport specialists. Laird would not forecast how the North Vietnamese would react to the initial U.S. with- drawal. "I don't make predictions as to what kind of response there will he said. Nixon Asks Billion In New Foreign Aid Funds 'WASHINGTON (AP) rhe Nixon administration opened its drive in Congress today for billion in new foreign aid funds, saying the U. S. program must continue if America is to keep its influence in de- veloping lands. Pentagon Chiefs Uncertain Over Russian Missile Power By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) Ob- servation of a series of Soviet missile tests ,in the Pacific has left Pentagon experts uncertain whether the Russians now have multiple warheads which can be steered to separate targets. American ships stationed in Russia's Pacific testing area have watched three or four ex- tended range test shots of the giant SS9. intercontinental ballis- tic missile since April. A study of telemetry and oth- er data gathered by the observ- ing U.S. vessels has been incon- clusive as to whether the So- have multiple warheads which they fire in clusters, or whether they have mastered the technology of separately target- ing each of the warheads, sources say. Opinion thus is divided, al- though there is general agree- ment that at a minimum, the Soviets have been testing multi- ple warheads with sufficient dis- persion to threaten knockout of individual Minuteman missile sites in the United States. The United States has con- ducted at least 14 tests of Min- uteman III land-based missiles and Poseidon submarine- launched missiles equipped with multiple independently targeta- re-entry vehicles, called MIRV. U.S. Air Force and Navy sources said these tests demon- strated Impressive accuracy. The U.S.. test series began last August and is scheduled to run tor two years before the first MlRV'i can be mounted in com- bat readiness.
