A lower-level Chinese diplo- mat made Peking's view known lo a U.S. official during a 10- minute meeting at the Chinese Embassy in Warsaw earlier to- day, a Stale Department spokesman said. The Chinese had previously cancelled a scheduled May 20 ambassadorial meeting on the ground of displeasure over the U.S. intervention in Cambodia.

But the author of best seller "Ruffles and Flourishes" took out some time to discuss her book, her plans and her observations of the country while "peddling her wares." Mrs. Carpenter's nation-wide tour to sell her book on the days of President Johnson's adminis- tration in which was press secretary to Lady Bird brought her to Abilene as well as the invitation to attend the Fandangle. Having been miles in 17 weeks selling her book, she said the trip was frustrating. "It's like campaigning only in bookstores instead of precincts." Mrs. Carpenter said she had had little time to see America on her trip. "I'm an inveterate marker reader and, I'll have to go across America again so I can get all this in." "That is what brings she said. "I know this territory, not personally but federally through hearings." Under her arm she toted a copy of Katharyn Duffs book "Abilene On Catdaw Creek" which she had been reading on the plane, and from questions asked and comments made, she, indeed, knew this territory. In her travels, Mrs. Carpenter said she had been able to meet all kinds of people, find out what they were thinking, what was bugging them. "In the July issue of McCall's Magazine, I have done a piece on people I've talked to and i n t erviewed, "Conversations with Out Silent she said. "I've found that the fringes of the country need psychiatrist more than the she said.

The Stale Department said Saturday: "We regret that the Chinese side has taken a position against resuming the ambassadorial level meetings at this time. "We continue to believe that the interests of both sides would be served by an early resump- tion of these meetings. As we have previously made clear, we stand ready to engage in con- structive discussions at any mu- tually convenient time." The Chinese statement broad- cast by Radio Peking did not re- fer directly to the Cambodian situation but said: "In view o( the fact that both sides clearly understand the current situation, the Chinese government feels that to discuss at present the meeting date of the Sino-U.S. ambassadorial talks is not suitable. "The date when future talks will be held will be discussed later at the proper time Bartch noted that when the Chinese had called off the pro- posed May 20 meeting, the Chinese had "indicated there would be a further meeting to set the dale for the next one." So, when a letter came from the Chinese setting up Satur- day's. Warsaw appointment the U.S. side had expected it would be for the purpose of arranging an ambassadorial session he said. Saturday's contact at Warsaw was. between two liason officers second secretary Tfitmias P. Simons Jr. for the U.S. side, and Ch'ien Yung-Men for the Chinese. Other U.S. officials held out hope once the Cambodian issue cools and Peking feels it less necessary to sound tough in its rivalry with Moscow for in- fluence in Asia, that the War- saw sessions wfll go ahead. In April, the Communist Chinese agreed to a meeting in Warsaw May 20. But on May 18, Peking canceled the meeting "in view of the increasingly grave situation created by the U.S. government which has bra- zenly sent troops to invade Cambodia and .expanded the war in Indochina."
