Civil Suit Continues In Court Peace Talks Hinge On U. S.

LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON land- mark safety package that would give the government broad au- thority to deal with slaughter on the nation's highways is one short step from final congres- sional approval Both unanimous approval Wednesday to the bill that would, grant the govern- ment power to set mandatory safety standards for all new buses and trucks starting with 1968 models. Power to de- velop standards for automobile tires and, eventually, the sale of used cars also is included. The House action came on a 365-0 vote, and two hours later the Senate acted by voice vote. The House also passed 360 to 3 a highway safety bill that would provide million in federal aid to help states and communities establish safety programs covering such things as vehicle inspection, driver ed- ucation, improved highway de- sign and maintenance and traf- fic control.

No matter bow long the war goes on, De Gaulle said, "France holds as certain that it will meet with no military solu- tion." There was no immediate com- ment 'from the State Depart- ment in Washington. De Gaulle conferred for 35 minutes Wednesday with Nguy- en Thuong, North Viet Nam's chief representative in Cam- bodia, and sounded him out on Hanoi's views. There was no indication, however, that the call for American agreement to a withdrawal timetable was based on anything the North Vietnamese told him.
