trial last Wednesday by Federal Judge William C Han son Foreman said that if rhere was to be a book burning the jury would have burned the girlie books first These are not obscene as a matter of law he said WASHINGTON AP Sen ate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfields factfinding team believes that as the Vietnamese war escalates Communist North Viet Nam becomes more dependent on Red China As a result it said the likeli hood increases that Hanoi will not be able to negotiate a settle ment without at least the tacit consent of China In fact that point may al ready have been reached the team said in a report released Friday night Mansfield and four Senate colleagues also warned that the Viet Nam fighting ultimately could engulf the entire Asian mainland in general war and that chances for a just negoti ated settlement are slim Mansfield Democrats Ed mund S Muskie of Maine and Daniel K Inouye of Hawaii and Republicans J Caleb Boggs of Delaware and George D Aiken of Vermont returned last month from a 35day 30000mile tour which took them lo 12 countries and the British colony of Hong Kong They visited South Viet Nam Dec 24 and reported the gen eral situation there is much the same as a year ago despite the major US troop buildup What was controlled then by the Viet Cong is still controlled by the Viet Cong they said They fixed Communist Viet Cong control of the South Viet namese population at 22 per cent and said 18 per cent live in contested areas The senators returned to the United States prior to President Johnsons multination cam paign to bring Communist North Viet Nam to the negotiat ing table Nonetheless they touched on the part other coun tries might play in settling the Vietnamese war Many nations they said are deeply desirous of an end to this conflict as quickly as possible Few are specific as lo the manner in which this end can be brought about or the shape it is likely to take In any event even though other nations in certain circum stances may be willing to play a thirdparty role in bringing about negotiations any pros pects for effective negotiations at this time and they are slim are likely to be largely depend on the initiatives and efforts of the combatants North Viet Nam has repeated ly downplayed the US peace offensive while South Viet Nam through its ambassador to the United Stales Vu Van Thai has said the effort is designed to create the condi tions to show we are ready in sincerely seeking a settlement In what some sources con strucd as a part of the US peace offensive Secretary of State Dean Rusk Friday night attended a Yugoslavian art ex hibit then went on to a recep tion staged by that Communist countrys Washington embassy The secretary docs not general ly altend such functions Although the Mansfield group met with numerous national leaders it confined its report to The Viet Nam Conflict The Substance and the Shadow It did say there is no reason to think the Soviet Union is anx ious to play a major role in peace efforts Late last year Ihc Russians spurned a British invitation to reconvene the Geneva conference on Indochina to negotiate an end to the Viet namese fighting The Mansfield report said They the Russians have em phasized repeatedly in public statements as well as in other ways that they have no intention of takingan initiative for peace in Viet Nam at this time Soviet party leader Alexander N Shelepin is in Hanoi but his mission is unknown He was accompanied by experts or mil itary production and rocketry The senators were wary of immediate negotiations saying Negotiations at this time moreover if they do come about and if they are accom panied by a ceasefire and standfast would serve to stabil ize a situation in which the ma jority of the population remains under nominal government con trol bul in which dominance ol the countryside rests largely in the hands of the Viet Cong aminer Dr J Murtaugh New Hampton said The body was accidentally discovered by John Pecinovsky Lawler Edward Manske
