Canada and Indonesia from mally presenting reports of North Vietnamese infiltration of South Vietnam. After nearly three hassling, Canadian Ambassador Michel Gauvin asked that meeting adjourned. The four- country commission will Uke up the matter again Wednes- day. The deadlock was reached after Hungary had reversed its position of last week and allowed three reports of inter- views with North Vietnamese prisoners to remain on the ICCS agenda. Earlier, Gauvin had said the Canadians might have to boycott commission meetings if the Hungarians insisted on their right to unilaterally strike the from the list of items to be discussed. The two East European coun- tries now take the view that only investigations of reported truce violations which are car- ried out with agreement by all four ICCS parties can be consid- ered legitimate. They point to articles of the Paris peace agreement that re- quire such unanimity and they refuse to let the Canadians and Indonesians forward their re- ports to the two-party Joint Mil- itary Commission com- Dosed of the Viett Cong and South Vietnamese government representatives. Gauvin told reporters today's meeting had been "successful" in the sense that the Canadians had been able to have the three reports, based on interviews with four North Vietnamese prisoners, left on the agenda. The Hungarians say, how- ever, that they are "reserving the right" to insist that reports not be considered unless they have been prepared by all four countries. "The question now said Gauvin, "whether the commis- sion can be rendered com- pletely impotent by the insist- ence of some parties on the ne- cessity for unanimity."

(AP) President Nixon prepared to return to Washington late today after a holiday stay marred by the death of a secret service bodyguard in a helicopter crash. Nixon, who flew here Friday with his family, will be in the capital only briefly. He flies to Iceland Wednesday morning for summit talks there with French President Georges Pompidou. The helicopter fell into the At- lantic Saturday night near Grand Cay in the Bahamas, where the Nixons were guests at the home of New York indus- trialist Robert Abplanalp. Nixon ordered a defence de- partment investigation of the accident, which claimed the life of Clifford Dietrich, 25, a new- comer to the White House se- cret service detail, who was making his first presidential trip.
