But a'proposal of a cease-fire as an end in means of stopping combat'while .efforts for. a settlement.. would mark a. departure from U.. policy as outlined by both the Johnson and Nixon adminis- trations. Officials in both administra- tions have argued a cease-fire in a war with no fixed front would be difficult to carry out. They also have contended the major U.S. purpose since the peace talks started has been not just to end the fighting but to make peace.

Opposed Measure The Nixon administration, in strongly opposing the Senate measure, contended this, was not the time to loosen trade re- strictions with the Communist bloc. But when it came to the final vote, 33 Democrats and 16 Re- publicans supported the changes. Seventeen Republicans Democrats voted against them. The measure "now goes to conference with the House, which last week passed a simple .two-year extension of the Ex- port Control Act without any cf the Senate-made changes. Sponsors of the legislation en- listed the support of many U.S. businessmen who contended they were being. shuT out of Eastern European markets on products which the Communists could buy freely elsewhere. Sen. Wallace F. Bennett, .R- Utah, speaking for thi adminis- tration, said the bill could result in "undue weakening of export controls, with attendant risk to O'jr national, security."

White Secretary Ronald L, Ziegler, when'asked about the Laird 'comment, said "obviously this is a part of the over-all discussion and thought that exists in the administra- tion." He also declared Laird was speaking as an administration official and a close adviser to the President on Vietnam, and was reflecting the view of the Defense Department. Ziegler did not say what other views have entered into current Vietnam policy discussions.

Governor Pappagianis said -Wednesday in a letter to the governor it is not their business or, the state's to get involved in. the' contro- versy New'Hamp- shire workers at the Ports- month Naval-Shipyard ought to pay Maine's, income tax., The real issue, Pappagianis said, is the-governor's-us.e cf tha office of his legal counsel, which he said is unconstitution- al, to undermine the authority of the attorney general. The of- fice is held by Warren Rudman. Pappigianis asked Peterson and the Executive Council to seek an opinion from the state Supreme Court on the constitu- tionality .of the job Peterson met with the council today for about two hours, pre- sumably to talk' about the dis- pute, but there was no immedi- ate comment about what was discussed. Rudman was not at the meeting. For the third time, Pappagi- anis refused to issue an opinion on the tax Issue as the attor- ney general, but said that as a lawyer, he thinks Maine can im- pose the tax. Peterson denied he is trying to force Pappagianis out of of- fice before his term expires in 1871. Seeks Advice The governor said, "I can't speak for the attorney general, but from my own standpoint I'm just trying to get the best advice I can from the state's lop legal authority on how we should proceed" in the shipyard dispute. Pappagianis has said It is up to the individuals affected by the tax to sect relief. As for whether Rudman has sparked the dispute, the gover- nor said, "As a matter of fact both Mr. Rudman and I have been scrupulously careful where the office of attorney general has been involved, There 'has been no attempt to undercut the attorney general. I think 'it's somewhat a figment of his im- agination." As for Rudman's job being unconstitutional, Peterson said he didn't think' a lay- he said, I don't honestly unconstitutional .The laws for some time that .the'.governor could have a legislative counsel. Warren Rudman is a key. staff assistant who happens to also be a lawyer." Pappagianis had said that while a governor can have a legislative counsel, such a staff member works only during the legislative sessions, not through- out the chief executive's term.
