Probes By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States has several .efforts under way to probe the possibilities of extending a Christmas truce in Vietnam into a long-term cease-fire under agreed conditions, officials report. \ But they add that reactions from Communist leaders so far are completely negative. The possibility, that U.N. Secretary-General U Thant can in- terest North Vietnam in ceasefire discussions is considered slight, in the light of the probing so far. Officials declined to give any specifics, but said there had been no encouragement to hope for' a break in the war of more than a few hours duration during the holiday season. U. S. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg asked Thant Monday to explore all possible ways of getting cease-fire talks going. The move was designed in part, according to available information here, to dramatize declared, U. S. readiness for easing of the war on a reciprocal basis. It appears also to have been designed to forestall heavy new pressures on the United States to have a long pause this holiday season in the bombing of North Vietnam. Officials still rule out an extended suspension of bombing by the United States unless the Communists make a reciprocal move to scale down hostilities; Both Thant and Pope Paul VI have been pressing for extension of the Christmas truce beginning next Saturday into a lengthy period of;quiet in the war and intense activity on the diplomatic, front. ,: The truces so far agreed between the two sides are- the, Christmas halt of 48 hours next Saturday and, Sunday and a New Year's pause the following weekend. The allies also have suggested a suspension of combat Feb. 8-12, the Vietnamese lunar'New Year, but State 'Department officials say they have not had a reply. In addition, to the U.N. channel which has been used before, the United States also has channels through Eastern European countries and the Soviet Union and through nonaligned countries, such as Egypt and Algeria.

Edward M. Kennedy says he hopes for a compromise in the dispute over publication of the book about the assassination of his brother, President John F. Kennedy. "I hope that some day the book will be published," the Massachusetts Democrat said in an interview Monday night over Boston television station WHDH on the program "Channel 5 Reports." ' Asked by the interviewer Whether, despite the legal fight, there was a, possibility of compromise, Kennedy replied: "Let's hope so.'V ,. . A spokesman for-Look, magazine, one of "the two* publishers named last Friday in a suit filed by Mrs. John F. Kennedy to block publication of the book, said today "informal, communi-cations" between thertiyo opposing sides are still continuing in efforts to settle the case out of court. A hearing on Mrs. Kenne- dy's suit has been set for Dec. 27. Cass Canfield, chairman of the executive committee of Harper & Row, the other publisher named in Mrs. Kennedy's suit, issued a statement Monday defending his firm's decjsion to publish the book, "The Death of a President," by author William Manchester. Canfield said: "In the interest of historical accuracy and of the people's right to know the true facts of the awesome tragedy - the right to know which led the Kennedy family to request Mr. Manchester to write his book and us to publish it - we join with him in defending the book's right to live." In reply, a spokesman for the Kennedy family,'issued a statement saying: "No amount of rhetoric about 'historical accuracy' or the public's 'right to know' can alter the nature of this controversy - whether Mr Manchester and the publishers broke the written agreement, from which breach enormous profits will apparently flow." Canfield said that "understandably, the members of the Kennedy family were unwilling to read the manuscript, themselves and hence they designated representatives to do this for them. Had they read it themselves, the present situation might have been avoided. The Kennedy family spokes-man said: "Although neither Sen. Robert F.
