Last fall, when President Johnson halted the bombing of North Vietnam, ele- ments of three divisions of North Vietnamese were pulled out of the Northern I Corps area. In recent weeks W.

Haniman and Vance believe the North Vietnamese were in- the ave dicatin; their willingness to re- months, duce the level of fighting. Military men here dispute this, arguing that the movements began as early as last August, and that the North Vietnamese were compelled to withdraw in order to refit and replenish their units. Neither military nor diplomatic sources here would hazard a guess as to the significance of the current pullback. Without preclud- ing the possibility lhat it could represent a political hint or quid pro quo on the part of the North Vietnamese, they noted several factors that tend to militate against such an interpretation. The military men point out that there has been no withdrawal of enemy troops anywhere else In per month, which his been the average for the past eight nonlhs. In addition, there is consider- side in Paris or even a hint that the movement constitutes a po- litical signal able evidence that the enemy Is preparing for another "mini-of- fensive" such as was launched in Jfay and June.

The Nashua Telegraph Will Not Publish Tomorrow INDEPENDENCE DAY WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. George S. SlcGovern's secret meeting with top Communist ne- gotiators has come under attack from a fellow Democrat who questioned whether it is in the nation's interest "to meet with the enemy in time of war." Sen. Harry F. Byrd Jr. of Vir- ginia raised the issue after McGovern, long a critic of VS. policy in Vietnam, disclosed he had met for 10 hours May JJ in Paris with North Vietnamese and Viet Cong representatives. Answering questions about the propriety of the meeting, Jfc- Govern said: "These same con- siderations went through my mind for many, many months." But he said he decided to go ahead with the meeting atler conferring with the Slate De- partment and chief U.S. peace negotiator Henry Cabot Lodge. "I wouldn't be able to rest if I thought anything I'd done had cost the life of a single Ameri- can boy or prolonged the the South Dakota Democrat said in defending his action. McGovern told of the secret meeting Wednesday in a Senate speech, and he elaborated in a press briefing and a series ol exchanges with fellow, senators during and after his formal talk, e' said he arranged the ses- sion to get a better understand ing of why the war and the kill- ing goes on. The senator empha sized he only asked questions and made clear to the repre- sentatives of North Vietnam and the Viet Cong he was not speak, ing in behalf of the U.S. govern- ment.

NOT TO STATE CIXEUA rwoimirl. flop nounced by City Engineer James F. Hagan as admlnlstra-i tor of the zoning code at a pub-! lie hearing last night The hearing was conducted by the aldermanic rules and policy committee on an ordinance which would change the ad- vance notice required for Zoning Board of Adjustment variance hearings from 72 hours to seven days. Other changes proposed per- tain to broadening the radius of persons (o be notified of re- quested variances and a change in the variance application fee. No recommendation been issued by the committee, pend- ing a meeting to examine an analysis of costs for variance notifications prepared by Hogan. Six Persons Testify Only six persons testified at the hearing but none was op- posed lo the seven-day notice proposed by the ordinance. The only area of dispute which arose was over the appli- cation fee to be charged in re- lation to notification costs. Testifying were Frank DiPic- Iro, 61 Spaulding Si.; Basil Pres- ti, m Manchester St.; Frank B. Clancy, a lawyer; Thomas Kudzma, a member of the Zoning Board of Adjustment; were away on a vacation. When they relumed they said, they discovered the hearing notice in their mailbox on the eve of the hearing, giving them little time to relaln.a law- yer and to rally (he neighbor- hood. Presti said he felt the zoning code was designed to protect property owners but the way the variance notification proce- dures, were handled now it worked to the advantage of the variance seeker.

W Per Ceal Role Clancy said when a variance applicant had lo secure the ap- proval of W per cent of nearby property owners to get a vari- ance approval, the residents of a neighborhood had some pro- tection with the 72-h'our notice. The "SO per cent rule" had been ruled unconstitutional by Iria courts some years ago, he pointed out.
