La attack an Accident caused either by mechanical failure or a Hung bomb. The head of the Mission Delegate general Pierre Susini died of Burns in a Paris Hospital thursday night. Five indochinese employees in the Mission also were killed. Pentagon spokesman Jerry w. Friedheim said it was Likely that the damage was caused by a 500-Pound bomb that had fallen from one of two dozen Navy planes from the Carrier Midway which were attacking military targets about three Miles from the French legation. He said the bomb apparently dropped As one of the planes was heading to or coming from its assigned target. A obviously this was an Accident and not a planned strike a he told reporters. A Hung bomb would mean that one of the 500 or 1.000-Pound bombs used in the raid failed to drop on the intended target when it was supposed to instead after the supersonic Jet pulled up and away the bomb slipped of on a wild course. Friedheim said because it was an Accident no reprimand recriminations or punishment Are planned. At the outset Hanoi maintained that it was an american bomb that hit the French Mission. While the . Command did not deny this it also raised the possibility that the damage could have been caused by one of More than a half dozen North vietnamese surface to air missiles fired at the amen expectations High autumn furniture Market launched by Jim Hawkins Enterprise staff writer a furniture Market expected to be a a tremendous got underway this morning in High Point and along North Carolinas furniture Highway.

The Bureau of labor statistics said that the consumer Price Index Rose four tenths of one per cent last month with higher prices for clothing causing almost half of the increase. The Price of gasoline and eggs also contributed heavily to the Advance. On a seasonally adjusted basis the rate of increase was five tenths of one per cent the highest since february when the Economy was going through a Post freeze bulge in the rate of inflation. The Bureau said the effects of clothing gasoline and egg Price increases were moderated by lower prices for beef fresh fruits and vegetables and new cars. The Price of food Rose six tenths of one per cent on a seasonally adjusted basis about the same rate As in july and August. But on an unadjusted basis the increase in food prices was two tenths of one per cent.

President Nixon sent a letter of regret to Pompidou. Kissinger Thieu Pierre Susini talks held in Saigon Saigon a Henry a. Kissinger and president Nguyen Van Thieu conferred for nearly four hours today amid reports that a partial cease fire was being discussed. It was the third meeting in two Days Between president Nixon a chief foreign policy adviser and the Leader of the Saigon government. There was no immediate word on Kissinger s next move but some sources indicated he would remain in Saigon at least through saturday and most Likely would see Thieu again. Kissinger was accompanied to the meeting today by . Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker Deputy ambassador Charles s. Whitehouse and Gen. Creighton w. Abrams the . Army chief of staff. South vietnamese sources who reported that a cease fire proposal was figuring in the talks said it probably called for Only a partial truce As a a Good will gesture that could Lead to further agreements. A it is impossible to have any cease fire that could be enforced even by an International body a said one South vietnamese official. A it might mean an end to bombing and mining of the North and perhaps an Exchange of prisoners but it would be impossible to guarantee any kind of a cease fire in the South where the fighting is going the chief stumbling Block to a cease fire agreement has been Thieu a rejection of the communist condition that he resign and give Way to a three faction coalition government including the communists. There has been widespread speculation that Kissinger is trying to persuade Thieu to step Down and the South vietnamese information ministry in a communique thursday said the president had renewed his vow a never to accept a coalition regime. A number of Thieu a political opponents refused an invitation to meet with him thursday night to discuss the current status of the peace Effort. A Many of us feel that Thieu is trying to create a myth about opposition to a tripartite government proposal a said one political foe of the president. A we feel he is Only pretending to ask for opinions to strengthen his position. We Are not willing to he used for such propaganda so we have refused to meet with Early peace not Likely Jim Van Vleck Nathan Dincan Bill Ross at Stanley furniture .

Washington a such phrases As a cease fire a coalition government and a interim agreement Are prominent these Days in speculation that a Vietnam peace is near. They also Point up difficulties that suggest no settlement is Likely for some time to come. Washington officials who report some Progress in presidential adviser Henry a. Kissinger a secret negotiations likewise caution against expecting any Quick Accord. A look at the practical problems helps show what the negotiators Are up against cease fire a halt to the shooting relatively simple in a War with fixed Battle lines becomes much More Complex when applied to a guerrilla Tydd conflict. For South Vietnam the talks have suggested a Checkerboard cease fire in which the opposing forces would stay in the areas they now hold. One problem at the Start would be to agree on who holds what territory. This is an item of considerable dispute Between the two sides and control in various places keeps changing with the tides of Battle. If there is a cease fire in place a question arises As to safeguards. Presumably communist forces in isolated pockets would want Access to the outside and the Saigon government would oppose uncontrolled communist crossing of its territory. Coalition government a key demand by the vietnamese communists is replacement of the current Saigon regime by an interim three a e g in e n t government. South vietnamese president Nguyen Van Thieu is solidly against this. Even if the communists Are willing to accept Thieu As head of one part of the tripartite Rule As Hanoi has indicated it is hard to imagine How this could work out. Presumably the communists would not agree to Thieu a staying on with the apparatus now under his command nor would Thieu agree to being a relatively powerless minority figure interim agreement this concept envisions a partway peace Deal perhaps before the nov. 7 . Election which would be followed by further negotiations toward a full fledged settlement. While Many variations of such an arrangement Are possible administration officials keep saying that the timing of a peace Accord will not be dictated by its presumed vote win Ning potential. They argue that Nixon will win in november anyway and thus is not under political pressure for a Quick pact with Hanoi. Others say that Nixon a avowed goal is a Broad and permanent Southeast asian peace not a temporary Deal which might fall apart. They acknowledge that the . Election May be stimulating the intensity of the current negotiations. They suggest that both Washington and Hanoi see this As a time when the other might be inclined to make some concessions and thus View the hour As Ripe for bargaining.
