Dispute Remains Over Route Of Peace March on Nov. 15 WASHINGTON (AP) Jus- tice Department officials and war protest leaders were about feet from agreement today on the proposed route of the Nov. 15 mass march through Washington. x- White House security officials adamantly insisted such a large range from to not be permitted closer than ttat to the executive mansion. The Justice Department, after consultation with the White House, agreed Friday to Jet the mass march proceed .next Sat- urday as long as the. route is Constitution Avenue and the demonstrators don't make a side trip to the presidential resi- dence. But the New Mobilization Committee to' End the War in Vietnam rejected.the govern- ment proposal, again saying that any plan must allow Pesticide Traces Found in Turkeys WASHINGTON (AP) Gov- ernment inspectors are making an intensive check of turkeys bound for the Thanksgiving market after finding traces of a powerful pesticide in tens of thousands of the birds. Agriculture Department offi- cials say they are confident no contaminated turkeys reached the retail markets, and that all turkey products in federally in- spected processing plants are being checked. The investigation began after residue of heptacholor, a long- lived pesticide ranking in toxici- ty with DDT, was discovered in a Minnesota processing plant Oct. 9. The department spokes- man said the plant was using I Thank You For Your Votes Robert Pillsbury birds supplied by Arkansas Val- ley Industries, Ltd., headquar- tered at Little Hock. Department officials said that of birds checked on ranches supplying the Arkansas company, have residue traces and the rest were uncontaminated. Another live turkeys on farms supplying AVI are to be checked before they are re- leased for slaughter. Also being detained for check- ing in federally inspected proc- essing plants are four million pounds of turkey meat. Officials indicated the investi- gation extended to states other than Arkansas and Minnesota, but would not name them or the processors involved. Food and Drug Administra- tion regulations permit no' traces of pesticide residue in meat and poultry products. Tur- keys or turkey-products found to be contaminated ate con- demned. marchers to pass in front of the White House. The New Mobilization said demonstrators feel they must make a symbolic gesture of pro- test to the policy-making execu- tive branch of government. The war protest leaders re- mained steadfast in demanding a swing by the White House and they said Deputy Atty. Gen. Richard G. Kleindienst knew their position before he offered the latest government proposal. Kleindienst said Friday the department believes "that the demonstrators have a clear right to meet in Washington and to petition the government for a redress of their grievances." He said his plan, under which the march would proceed down Constitution to 17th Street and then to the Washington Monu- ment area, would satisfy both goals. The route was proposed by Kleindienst after day-long meet- ings with march leaders and a separate session with represent- atives of. various capital securi- ty forces, including police, the Secret Service and the Army. Kleindienst said the govern- ment is willing to continue nego- tiations on other route alterna- tives. Both sides have reached agreement on all other aspects of the three-day demonstration. His resolution would empow- er, the elections and returns committee to determine the ex- tent or desire for a partisan municipal election rather than a non-partisan election. Bouchard, who, touched off a controversy over the letter by denouncing it earlier this week, is an active Dembcrat. He said Republicans had told him that the. letter was the re- sult of a minority, party" and 'that they too deplored it. "I just think this was a regret- table he 'said, I .would1 like to see; if there is anything we. can do to'prevent .........it frbhr "ever 'Bappenmg1 Bouchard said the purpose for studying electid'n tabulation' methods is to find out if there is a quicker way. As it'is now, he said, the re- sults come in very late whereas other cities, including Manches- ter, have, theirs relatively Dearly. in the'evening. Only the legislature, he said, can .'redistrict the wards, but the aldermen can expedite mat- ters by making known their de- sire for-such action. The wards here were redis- tricted in. 1966 but Bouchard said the election Tuesday showed that the wards are bad- ly out of proportion in terms of voter registration. This, he said, is a direct vio- lation of the one vote concept which the U.S. Supreme Court has' extended down to the local level. Ward S, the city's largest Ward, has registered vo- ters. The smallest is Ward 4 with voters. By GEORGE ESPER SAIGON (AP) Gen. Creighton W. Abrams, commander of the American troops in Viet- nam, said today that South Vietnam's armed forces have "prepared themselves for the rapidly approach- ing and eventual takeover of the defense of their country." Sets No Timetable He set no timetable for a US. piillout, however. "Our Vietnamese counter- parts have demonstrated their willingness to endure enormous "Hardships in order to attain their freedom from Communist Abrams said in a message released-to his com- mand in commemoration of Vet- erans' Day next Tuesday. Abram's message was made public ,as North Vietnamese troops along the Cambodian border attacked four. U.S. 1st Air Cavalry Division bases north of Saigon, inflicting light casualties. The enemy pounded the bases, one of them a brigade headquarters, with more than 200 rounds of rockets, mortars and grenades. North Viet- namese' troops followed up one of the attacks with an infantry assault. One American and one South Vietnamese civilian irregular killed, and 24 Americans and seven: South Vietnamese ir- jegulars were wounded. Four North Vietnamese soldiers were known dead. Up, to 40 American B52 bomb- ers dumping more than tons of bombs along a 130-mile stretch of the 'U.S." "artillery" "and helicopter'' guriships blasted North Viet- namese camps: in the' jungle near the bases, which range from 55 miles northwest to 83 miles nortlrbf Saigon. Enemy gunners shot down two U.S. Army AH1 Cobra heli- copter gunships in the area, kill- ing one American and wounding one. The losses raised to the number of American' air-, craft lost in the Vietnam war. The U.S. Command reported 37 enemy rocket and mortar at- tacks during the 24-hour period that ended at 8 a.m. today, but said only 15 of them caused cas- ualties or damage. American losses were put at three killed and 19 wounded.

Five South Vietnamese troops were killed and 20 wounded. En- emy losses were put at 15 dead. Three South Vietnamese civil- ians were reported killed when an enemy mortar shell nit a government outpost 12 miles north of Saigon. Senate Skirts Peace March By H. L. SCHWARTZ III WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate, although widely divided on the1 subject of the Vietnam. War, is showing surprising un- animinity in.its reluctance to get involved publicly in next week's peace demonstrations in Washington. Bepublican Charles Goodell of New York, one of the most out- spoken doves, came close to an endorsement of the march when lie called on the administration Friday to grant a permit.for a parade down Pennsylvania Ave- nue. But Goodell made it clear in a letter to. Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and in a news confer- ence that he was not supporting __the three days pi .demonstra- hot until con- vinced organizers are .making every effort to prevent violence. Goodell's position makes nun only senator of ei- ther party to make any kind of gesture toward the demonstra- tions. Many of those who supported. Oct..-15. moratorium have ei- ther been critical like Oregon Republican Mark .Hatfield and Arkansas Democrat J. W. Fill- bright or silent like Democrat George S.. McGovern of South Dakota. In contrast to Goodell, his fel- low New York Republican, Ja- cob Javits, informed leaders.of the Vietnam Moratorium Com- mittee that be would not take part in any demonstrations. Javits gave no reason in a telegram to the leaders. He said he had taken part last month and would "join again when I feel my participation is best for Vietnam peace objective."
