Interviewed on a CRC-TV pro- gram about the Vietnam war, Mr. Rusk was asked what now makes the mining more ac- ceptable, a policy now adopted by President Nixon. One very important differ- ence, he said "is the fact we ara getting out of Southeast DEAN RUSK not impressed Asia and it may ne that some others in the West felt that this kind of step h; less pro- vocative than it might have been if we had troops in Southeast Asia "I can only speak for myself on this but I was not particu- larly impressed with the techni- cal feasibility of mining that entire coastline, because of the opportunity to put supplies ashore over the beach, or by using the ports of southern China, moving them in by road and rail out of Cliina, tilings of that sort. "The military effect of the mining would be relatively minor compared to the major provocation that could well be involved. t Montreal Mayor Jean Dran- cau said in Vancouver that Quebec separatist leader Rene Lcvosquc was ihe only politici- an to grasp the true feelings of Quebecers in the province's current labor strife.

A foreign ministry statement Wednesday said Nixon's pro- posal May 8 "is, In essence, only aimed at forcing the Viet- namese people to lay down their arms, abandon their just fight and accept the puppet (Saigon) administration, stooge of the United States, and the U.S. neo- colonialist administration i n South Vietnam."
