A senior South vietnamese to. Lotical official said in Saigon earlier today the United states has proposed a full bombing halt and was discussing the pro. Postal with the Saigon govern ment. In Paris South vietnamese diplomats told newsmen they understand the United states had made the proposal As an attempt to further peace negotiations. Washington officials although declining to say whether a final settlement has been reached acknowledged the United states and North Vietnam Tiave been discussing for several weeks a package plan to end the deadlocked talks in Paris. The Washington officials said a key element of the package is North Vietnam a military re. Strain in return for a bombing halt. Also being discussed they said is the Way the South Viet namese government and the a. Tonal liberation front political Arm of the Viet Congo would be brought into the second phase of the Paris talks. The report from Saigon Fol. Lowed two meetings today be. Tween . Ambassador Els Worth Bunker and South Viet namese president Nguyen Van the leu.

By Wayne Morse himself is Oregon Senate Issue Portland Ore., a Wayne Morse is up for re elec. Tion to the . Senate and he is the Issue As he has always been. This Stormy Senate figure has been told every six years for a Quarter of a Century that in Ore. Gon he is the Peoples Choice. It could be different this time. Morse is opposed by Republic. Can Robert Packwood a Portland lawyer three term Mem. Ber of the Oregon legislature and an amazingly Able organic. Or of political campaigns. At 36 Packwood is Only a Little More than half morsels age. He was Portland a Junior first citizen in 1967, organized an annual Republican Confer. Ence of Young liberals that the old pros found it necessary to join and recruited and trained legislative candidates whose victories switched the state legislature from democratic to re. Publican. He is articulate personable and generally moderate in his views. In outlining the Campaign is sues he has alienated almost no one riots must not be tolerated but conditions that cause them must be treated the United states must end the Vietnam War with Honor demanding land Reform and an end to govern mental corruption As a condition of continued military presence there. A i Tell myself the Young fellow can to beat the old pro a says an Eastern Oregon Newspaperman. And one from Southern Oregon agrees adding that a they All say a Morse is a stubborn old Man but a and then they add vote for him because he helped them on some local mat. Ter or they want at least one Maverick in the Senate or for some other a poll taken for Morse in late August showed him ahead 49 to 40 per cent with la per cent undecided. A poll taken for the newspaper the oregonian had almost identical figures for All voters but when pared to those most Likely to vote it showed him ahead Only 45 to 44 per cent with la per cent undecided. The big undecided vote in both polls was puzzling. Nearly every voter knows Morse and seemingly has Strong feelings about him. People like him or dislike him but they Are not in different to him. Packwood says it May be be cause Many who done to want to vote for Morse Arentt certain they want to switch to a Man they done to know. But his big Chance comes oct. 25 and some think that is the Date the election will be decided. Morse and Packwood will face each other that Day before the Portland City club and nearly All of the states television stations. A it is such a tossup the debate May Settle the election a says one observer. It will give Packwood great exposure to voters who now scarcely know him. A Man close to Morse agreed but said the courtly language of which Morse is capable would dispel the idea held by Many that Morse is blindly vitriolic against every foe. He said it also would put Down the idea of Morse being an old Man. He will be 68 on oct. 20 but is vigorous and looks it. All of this he said would swing the undecided votes and Victory to Morse.
