Kissinger, President Nix- on's super envoy for secret and not-so-secrel missions, is head- ing for Peking under cover of a barebones announcement that has raised more questions than answers. With Soviet President Nikolai V. Podgorny en route to Hanoi, word of Kissinger's departure late today or early Friday spurred speculation of a new Vietnam peace move. White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler publicly de nied any link between Kissin- ger's trip to Peking, his fourth, and Podgorney's journey. And he said the Nixon strategist plans no side trips or meetings with non-Chinese representa- tives during his talks with Pe- king leaders June 19-23. But the White House spokes- man left wide open the proba- bility that Vietnam will at least be discussed, as did the brief joint announcement of Kissin- ger's visit issued Wednesday here and in Peking. Kissinger is going, it said, "for concrete consultations with Chinese leaders to further the normalization of relations be- tween the People's Republic of China and the United States and continue to exchange views on issues of common interest." Kissinger's first, secret jour- ney to China last July set up Nixon's summit session seven months later. He led an ad- vance team to Peking in Octo- ber and accompanied Nixon there in February. Meanwhile he went on a series of secret trips to Paris for Vietnam ne- gotiations. Those trips were dis- closed in January. The presidential aids five- man entourage this time in- cludes a Vietnam specialist. John D. Negroponte, along with China experts. Yet Ziegler said "I would not relate it (the trip) to any particular topic." Administration sources ruled out Nixon's new mining and bombing of North Vietnam as prompting the parley, despite Peking's charge Monday that the air raids threatened China's security. They said the Kissinger visit was agreed on last month, and that Peking could have can- celed it if the Chinese intended to follow up their anti-U.S. rhe- toric with tough deeds. And Podgorney's call at Hanoi, the sources said, had been expected as the Kremlin reports to its allies on the U.S.- Soviet summit. The United States has held similar sessions with its allies, including Kissin- ger's just-concluded trip to Ja- pan. Nonetheless these adminis- tration sources are not dis- couraging speculation that Pe- king and Moscow might be pre- vailed upon to influence Hanoi loward a peace settlement. They say: the Chinese and the Soviets have shown Vietnam is a secondary issue them, running below their other prior- ities including their dispute with each other. Vietnam is hard hit by Nixon's seal-off and bomb- ing measures. Because Chinese and Russian supplies arc chocked down, Hanoi may be more inclined to negotiate. Other guesswork about Kis- singer's mission suggests that the Peking meeting will pick up uherc Nixon's talks there left off, covering a broad range of topics from Taiwan to trade but not necessarily reaching much new agreement.

Twenty-nine states have already adopted nitrogen dioxide controls to meet fed- eral standards. The agency admitted Wednesday a flaw in its bas- ic tests for nitrogen oxides. At the same time, it pro- posed nitrogen-oxide control plans for nine states whose original proposals were ruled inadequate. Ground Money Deputy Director Robert W. Fri said EPA was rech- ecking all of the 45 regions where such controls were re- quired but would not have new readings until the end of this year. Therefore, Fri said, EPA would not put its nine state plans into effect for nitrogen dioxides before July 1, 1S73. The agency also recom- mends that the other 20 states with such control plans delay their implemen- tation. EPA proposed nitrogen oxide controls for Mass- achusetts, Texas, New Jer- sey, Missouri, Maryland, Washington. Georgia. Ten- nessee and Michigan. The plans were required by EPA findings in 1S71 that parts of those states had smog-inducing nitrogen ox- ide levels high enough to threaten human health. The same finding was made for parts of Arizona, California. Colorado. Con- necticut, District of Colum- bia, Florida. Illinois. Indi- ana, Iowa, Kentucky, Minne- sota.

Conference on the Human Environment. The unofficial document point- ed out that the conference had adopted a resolution calling for a 10-year moratorium on the killing of whales. It said: "Whereas the only way for the human race to survive this cen- tury is for us lo stop killing each other: "Be it resolved for a trial peri- od of 10 j-ears beginning July 1. 1972 all people of the earth and all governments purporting to represent these people, be they tribal, local, national or inter- national, recognize Homo Sa- piens as an endangered species and joyously proclaim a 10-year moratorium on the hunting, "kill- ing and environmental poisoning of human beings." WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Nixon asked Congress to- day to approve by Sept. 1 the arms curbs he initialed in Mos- cow so broader disarmament talks can begin in October. Speaking informally, Nixon appeared before dozens of con- gressmen at what he termed an unprecedented briefing session in tfie State Dining Room of the White House. He had invited 122 legislators to attend and to question the sometimes elusive Henry A. Kissinger, Nixon's na- tional security adviser. Most of the invited Senate and House members showed up. In urging approval by Sept. 1 of a treaty with the Soviets lim- iting defensive strategic arms and a companion executive agreement lo curb offensive missiles, Nixon added he was not suggesting it should take that long. But in any case, he said, he was hopeful the way could be cleared for the beginning of talks in October on broadening limitations on offensive weap- ons. The chief executive also urged his audience to fund a bigger defense, program, saying the Soviets have made it clear "they are going forward with offensive programs." Should the United States stand pat, or disarm unilateral- ly, the Soviets no longer have any incentive to negotiate further arms curbs, he said. The early-morning appear- ances by Nixon and Kissinger marked the latest adminis- tration maneuver in seeking congressional approval of "first step" arms accords. It was believed to be .the largest congressional briefing session ever held at the White House. Those invited included all members of the five key com- mittees directly involved in considering: Moscow treaty to limit defensive strategic missiles, subject to approval by two- thirds of the Senate. companion five-year ex- ecutive agreement to curb of- fensive missiles for which Nix- on seeks a majority vote in both houses. Nixon could only remain with the legislators long enough to make opening remarks at the 9 a.m. meeting, the White House said, because of his participa- tion in arrival ceremonies an hour later for visiting President Luis Echeverria Alvarez of Mexico.

If the federal government could adver- tise a product it is having a hard time get- ting rid U.S. that's probably the way it would read. Federal reserve banks are beginning Jo grind up cash instead of burning it, be- cause many localities have anlfburning laws to protect the environment. Treasury officials say grinding eventually will be the only way they will dispose of old dollars. But wnat to do with the end product-a fine, light green fluff, has presented prob- lems, and the Treasury Department is try- ing to sell it. So far, oniy one company, a Kansas well- drilling outfit, has been interested in buy- ing the lint-like chopped cash. The Davi Mud and Chemical Co.. trea- sury officials say, is buying ground-up dol- lars from the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank for S10 a ton and using it as well- drilling mud. The ground-up money. turned into a thick slush, is used in the boring process. The Treasury says it is also in-1 vcstigating selling the former greenbacks lo a roofing company for use as roofing v i felt, but no deal has been worked out. The only problem is there aren't many commercial uses for worn-out money. The government destroys about 2.500 Ions of currency a year, about two billion notes with a face value of S12 billion. Treasury officials say they would like lo make old dollars into stationery, but it is out of the question because of Secret Serv- ice regulations. Someone might get the idea thai Jhey can use the paper for count- erfeiting. "It still has the distinctive fabrics that could cause problems to secret service in its counterfeiting said 0. H. Tomkinson, ihe department's management analysis officer. Another problem is that it costs too much to get Ihe ink out, so that any end product made from dollars is going to be money-green. The Dallas Federal Reserve Bank is the only one doing the grinding now, but this summer banks at Cincinnati. Philadelphia. Cleveland and Minneapolis will begin shift- ing from burning to grinding.
