indicated during de- bate Thursday there is an area of compromise between the two amendments since both ed continued antiballistic I would think as a suggestion perhaps it would be possible to achieve

said he will not state his position publicly Aiken said in his speech that even though the legislation as written could be approved by as many as 51 or 52 votes in this Senate which I doubt we would be in an extremely weak bargaining position in coming arms talks with the viet Union I believe it is absolutely essary for President Nixon to have a much larger number of votes of this Senate ing him

any political outcome which is arrived at through free tions President Thieu proposed free elections settle the war ing the Viet Cong can pate if they pledge to renounce violence and abide by the re- sults of the Thieu called for international supervision to insure conditions fair to all Observers in Saigon said Thieu's proposal was unlikely to end the stalemate at the Paris peace talks since Hanoi and the Viet Cong's provisional government insist the United States must withdraw all its troops and the Thieu regime must step down as the first steps to end the war The President described Thieu's proposals as marking the culmination of a long ies of steps by the South and American ments all of which together demonstrate clearly the sincere desire of our two governments to negotiate an honorable and rapid settlement of the war In saying he and Thieu have declared themselves ready to accept any outcome arrived at through -free elections Nixon underlined the word any Ronald L Ziegler

vised by an international body Ziegler said the White House had a full text of Thieu's re- marks before they were ered He likened the tion to that which preceded the May 14 address putting forward an peace plan The presidential spokesman responding to questions left open the possibility that a re- view of further withdrawals of U.S combat troops from South Vietnam promised for late gust might be accelerated should the current lull in ground fighting continue However he said that while the level of fighting was being watched and assessed carefully it was too early to determine whether it represented a signal from the other side Nixon in his statement said Thieu put forward a statesmanlike and fair proposal deserving the support of all who seek peace If the other side is prepared or serious negotiations and willing to abide by the free choice of the South Vietnamese Nixon said this should open the way at last for a rapid settlement of the con- The President called upon the leaders of the other side to respond in a spirit of peace and let the political issues be re- solved by the political process Scout planes carrier watch Soviet ships JACKSONVILLE Fla Additional U.S
