By BILL NEIKIRK WASHINGTON Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield and his R e p u b 1 i c a n counter- part, Hugh Scott, both pre- viously critical of U. S. Vietnam policy, are spon- soring a resolution sup- porting President Nixon's efforts to end the war but also calling for a "mutually observed cease-fire." Supports President The two Senate leaders would not reveal details of their reso- lution in advance of its introduc- tion today but Mansfield said he .and Scott worked it up to "generate support for the Presi- dent." An aide to Scott said the Sea- ate resolution "requests the President to call on the govern- ment of North Vietnam to ob- serve a mutually observed cease-fire." The proposal comes one day after the House Foreign Affairs Committee approved 21-8 a res- olution supporting Nixon's ef- forts to "negotiate a. just peace." The House measure makes no mention of a cease-fire. Both Mansfield and Scott pre- viously have proposed cease- fires, but without specifying they should be "mutually ob- served." While he has been mildly crit- ical, Mansfield also has urged that Congress and the people give Nixon their backing. Speaking of Nixon's, efforts to end the war, -Mansfield said in the Oct. 2 interview: "He.sure- as hell wants out. He is Just finding the ways and means dif- ficult." Scott made what appeared to be a proposal for a unilateral cease-fire in Vietnam last month. But after the idea was denounced by. Defense Secre- tary Melvin R. Laird, Scott is- sued another statement saying that he intended to proposes mutual cease-fire. The Pennsylvania senator also found himself going counter to the administration during the summer when he proposed more troop withdrawals at a time Nixon was trying to fend off such pressures from Demo- crats. At that time he was the assistant Republican leader. The Senate leaders decided to go with introduction of the reso- lution today, Scott's aide said, after getting .34 signatures early Thursday still more senators saying they wanted'to cosponsor it. The House resolution, largely fashioned by Rep. Jim D-Tex., and introduced three days ago, has the backing of 181 members. GOP Election Letter Spurs Four of Saigon's 10 Divisions Found in Combat Readiness Credit Report Bill Guards Consumers By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate has passed without dis- sent a bill to protect consumers against arbitrary and erroneous credit Sen. William Proxmire, D- chief sponsor of the bill, hailed its passage Thursday as "the biggest 'consumer victory this year" in Congress. The measure now goes }o the House' where sponsor of similar legislation said the subject would be considered in the Banking Committee later this year or early in 1970. Any House floor action will not come before next year, they said. Proxmire .said credit ratings now are maintained on 110 mil- lion Americans and that the bill would for the first time give in- dividuals a federally guaranteed right to correct false infbrma- tion in their files. The measure should "prevent consumers from being unjustly damaged because of inaccurate or arbitrary the senator said. The Senate :acted on the bill by voice vote after less than an hour's.debate with only half a dozen members present. During committee hearings on the bill last spring, senators heard witnesses charge erro- neous credit reports had cost them jobs and ruined their ca- reers.

HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) Four of South Vietnam's 10 regular army divisions have reached reasonably acceptable combat shape, according to .U.S. mili- tary sources. These officers said just a year ago only one AHVN division could be rated as at least good- They now rank the remaining six South Vietnamese divisions from marginal to poor. U.S. authorities concede the South Vietnamese army has not yet been battle tested on a wide scale since the Nixon adminis- tration ordered a speed-up in the "Vietnamization." The aim of that program is to prepare the South Vietnamese forces to replace U.S. ground combat units as soon as possi- ble, so Americans may be with- drawn gradually. "The ARVN is going to lose some battles, there are prob- lems and there are some bad units, but the South Vietnamese are doing one civilian official said. Last Monday, President Nixon reported progress in training the South Vietnamese forces has been greater than anticipated and that, as a result, the U.S. withdrawal timetable "is more, optimistic now than when we made our first estimates in June." American military sources said the South Vietnamese 1st division in the Northern I Corps and the 7th, 9th and 21st divi- sions in the Mekong River Delta are at least reasonably accepta- ble. The U.S. officers who dis- cussed current evaluations gave high marks to the South Viet-' namese airborne troops and re- ferred to 14 armored cavalry squadrons as "a real success story." The armored cavalry, using M48 tanks and personnel car- riers, have been conducting road security operations and serving as -a battle reserve, these officers said. By CtAUDETTE DUROCHER Democratic City Chairman Robert A. Dion, disclosed to- day that he not only favors, partisan municipal elections but at one time had considered in- troducing a bill in the 'legisla- ture to amend the city charter to permit them. But G.' Allen Walker Jr., chairman of the Republican which precipi- tated the controversy over par- tisan municipal elections, said he would reserve comment on the subject "until a more ap- propriate time." The GOP committee last week sent letters to Republi- cans voters asking them to sup- port the 22 Republicans on the ballot for Tuesday's non-parti- san election. Violates Spirit Alderman at Large Bert- rand J. Bouchard, an active Democrat, denounced the com- mittee for the move, saying it was "a shameful violation of the spirit of our city charter which calls for non-partisan municipal elections." r And if the Republicans intend to continue with these tactics, he said he would introduce a measure to consider changing the election format to a parti- san one. His proposal was welcomed by Charles R..frnk, vice chair- man- of the Republican city committee who "alle- giance letter" was his idea. Dion. said "the 'Democrats didn't do anything along parti- san lines in We kept our noses clean but the Republicans stuck their out. "So if that's the .way they want to play it, let's go all the way and get partisan he added, noting that Nashua is 65 per cent Democratic. Dion suffered defeat at the hand of a Republican Tuesday when Donald C. Davidson ousted him as Ward 8 alderman.

HoUis St. MMK By HOWARD BENEDICT 1 CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) Electrical power surged into a giant Saturn 5 rocket today as the launch team began the week-long countdown for Apollo 12, man's second moon-landing mission. The countdown clock started right on schedule at noon EST, 167 hours 22 minutes from scheduled liftoff at a.m. next Friday- In addition to 98 hours of countdown, four automatic holds totaling more than 69 hours were programmed for rest by the launch team and for dealing with possible problems. Proceed Smoothly As the countdown started, launch director Walter Kapryan reported all launch preparations were proceeding smoothly. The three astronauts, Charles Conrad Jr., Hichard F. Gordon Jr. and Alan L. Bean, planned several hours today in com- mand ship and lunar lander simulators, rehearsing key steps in the 10-day flight.

Conrad, Gordon and Bean _ first climb into the command 'ship trainer to practice proce- dures for the rocket burn that will propel them out of earth or- bit and onto the quarter-mil- lion-mile translunar trail. That ignition occurs.over the Pacific Ocean after the astro- nauts have circled the globe one and a half times to make cer- tain the spaceship's systems are working. Later, Conrad and Bean are to enter the landing simulator to practice descent to the moon Fortunately Rain Wasn't Snowfall So the rain's getting you down. Well, here's a redeeming point. If all this rain had occurred as snow, we would "now be trun- dling through 28 inches of the white stuff. But fortunately for all except skiing enthusiasts, the past five days have called for umbrellas rather than snow shovels, as the rain total drlbblad its way up to 2.82 inches. Sunday's storm left the most rain (1.19 with Wednesday second and yesterday third And, you guessed it. The fore- cast for tonight and tomorrow is: more rain. Low tempera- tures tonight will be in the up- per 40s or low 50s, with gentle northeast winds. Saturday is predicted as another rainy day with high temperatures in the low 50s. and liftoff for return to the or- biting command craft.

They are to make two excur- sions outside totaling seven hours to carry out the first de- tailed exploration of the lunar surface. Apollo 72 Landing Site Composite picture shows were Apollo 12 spacecraft will land on the moon ffov. 19. Since subsequent eight moon missions will attempt to park landing .craft in areas far more rugged than lunar plains chosen for Apollo 11 and 12, much depends on the latter crew's ability to put craft down within walking distance of a crater 636. feet wide.
