obviously was prepared for a question on the subject His reluctance to elaborate was equally evident In Washington the United States and South Viet Nam were reported planning a Christmas lull in the war to the extent that the Communists are willing to go along and refrain from shoot ing on their side The Communist forces broad cast two weeks ago a suggestion for a truce in the fighting on the night before Christmas If both sides stop shooting there could be an effective truce even though no formal ccascfirc agreement is likely The Communist CR was for a 12hour ccascfirc beginning on Christmas Eve and lasting until Christmas morning Ap parently the United Slates and South Viet Nam plan a 24hour cessation of hostilities on their side provided thai the Commu nists do not initiate

Communist nations of Europe to intensify their efforts to im prove reciprocal relations Secretary General U Thant hailed the action as another welcome indication of the pro gressive ending of what has be come known as the cold war UN diplomats did not con ceal their disappointment in the failure of the assembly to find a formula for financing future peacekeeping operations A major part of the
