Chicago Grain Vietnam, conferred today with President Nguyen Van Thieu on U.S. troop withdrawals and a possible cease-fire in light of the break in the peace talks deadlock. The meeting took place less than 24 hours after an announcement from Paris that the United States, North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front will begin four-way talks Saturday. Earlier, the U.S. Air Force disclosed it is reviewing its contingency plans for a troop withdrawal or a cease-fire. One source said the meeting was "pretty high level stuff," also attended by Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky and Foreign Minister Tran Chanh Thanh. The informant said the leaders discussed "a whole spectrum of things" for nearly two hours. Topics included: —Withdrawal of American troops, how many and how soon. —A truce, which could mean a cease-fire, a partial cease-fire or a "cease-fire in place." The latter means all troops would simply stay where they are without mounting any new operations or continuing any old ones. —How to retaliate if the enemy should attack Saigon during the new negotiations. "In other words," said the source, "would this mean an automatic resumption of bombing North Vietnam?" —The demilitarized zone.

Some blue chips weakened under selling and the result was a loss in the Dow Jones industrial average. The Dow industrials at noon were off 1.43 at 937.16. Gains outnumbered losses on the Big Board by more than 200 issues. Airlines were strong as a result of approval of tentative air line fair boosts by the Civil Areonautics board. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was up 12 at 352.9 with industrial up .7, rails up 1.4 and utilities up .6. Bcnguet took a big lead as most-active stock, rising a point on a parade of big blocks as issue rebounded from selling and advanced on hope that a 60-day delay in a decision by the Philippine government would be favorable 1o those who hope the company will link up with hotel and gambling interests in the Bahamas.

He lias said, however, he would divert himself of any interests the committee considered a possible conflict. Otherwise, the Hickel hearing continued to center his connection with the oil Industry, on land claims, fishing disputes and other controversies during sis tenure 'as governor. early next week, U. Alexis Johnson, undersecretary of state for political affairs in the incoming Nixon administration, canceled a scheduled meeting with Thieu later today. A spokesman for the U.S. Mission said he had a bad case of flu. Johnson has been conferring with top American and South Vietnamese officials since Wednesday. He is scheduled to leave" for Washington Saturday to report his findings to President-elect Nixon, but the spokesman said his departure may be delayed by his illness. While Abrams is against withdrawing any combat units from Vietnam before mid-July, sources said he has reluctantly accepted the fact that some troop withdrawals will be made relatively soon. Informants close to Thieu said the initial withdrawal announcement could sepcify from 20,000 to 50,000 men without a timetable. On Thursday, Premier Tran Van Huong was quoted by a spokesman as saying he believes the United States could begin a withdrawal of 10,000 men a month without compromising the war effort. Reds Shell Towns U.S. headquarters reported the 51st significant incident of enemy activity in the demilitarized zone since the Nov. 1 bombing halt of North Pietnam. A communique said North Vietnamese troops hidden in bunkers fired on a light observation plane Thursday over the south- em half of the six-mile wide zone. American artillery retaliated, smashing three bunkers. On the Batangan Peninsula, an 8,200-man allied task force tightened its cordon on North Vietnamese regulars and Viet Cong believed holed up in the area 340 miles northeast of Saigon. Now five days old the operation still has not encountered any major resistance. Military spokesman also reported that enemy mines sank one U.S. Navy boat and heavily damaged another on the Cua Viet River just beolw the eastern flank of the DMZ Thursday. Five American crewmen and one civilian were killed; 12 sailors and Marines were wounded, and 11 other Navy men and Marines were listed as missing. Charge Woman In Disturbance The report was made public by the Justice Department Thursday night on the eve of court proceedings on a petition by New Orleans Dist. Atty. Jim Garrison to gain possession of autopsy photographs and x-rays in the hope of proving the President was hit by one bullet fired from in front him, and another fired at his back. Garrison subpoenaed the material as evidence in the trial of Clay L. Shaw, retired 55- year-old New Orleans businessman charged with conspiring to murder Kennedy. Garrison claims he can use the photographs and x-rays to prove at least one of the bullets which struck Kennedy in Dallas five years ago was fired from his front. This would show that a conspiracy was involved, whereas the Warren Commission concluded Kennedy was shot by one man, Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone. The photographs and x-rays were placed in the care of the National Archives in 1966 by Kennedy's widow, Mrs. Aristotle Onassis, and 1 his brother, the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. This was done by letter agreement that the material would not be made public for five years, and then only to government investigators, to prevent "undignified or sensational" use of them. Garrison asked that the District of Columbia General Sessions Court order the national archivist, James B. Rhoads, to appear with the material at Shaw's trial Jan. 21. Rhoads was ordered to a show-cause hearing today to explain why he should not. He filed an application in the court Thursday listing several reasons. For one thing, Rhoads said, violating restrictions under which the National Archives received the material "would completely destroy the public confidence in the federal gov- renment to honor its commitments to donors of papers, oral history transcripts and' other historial material." Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark, who released the review panel's findings said Mrs. Onassis and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., the only surviving Kennedy brother, were consulted before the material was shown to the panel. Burke Marshall, former assistant attorney general who represents the Kennedys in the matter, said Sen. Kennedy and Mrs. Onassis "both asked me to say that they will have no comment to make on the report or its release." Clark did not say why the review was kept secret. The report of the panelists was signed last spring. It says they met to review the autopsy material last Feb. 26 and 27 in Washington. Members of the panel were Dr. William H. Cames, professor of pathology at the Universi ty of Utah; Dr. Russell S. Fisher, professor of forensic pathology at the University of Maryland; Dr. Russell H. Morgan, professor of radiology and radiological science at John Hopkins University, and Dr. Alan R, Moritz, professor of pathology at Case Western Reserve versity in Cleveland.

U.S. ambassador to Saigon, is to head the Paris negotiating team beginning Monday. And Ells worth Bunker will remain as U.S. ambassador in South Vietnam. W. AvereU Harriman, who headed Johnson's negotiating team, said in Paris that the agreement on starting talks with South Vietnam and the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front participating, removed an important obstacle for the new administration. "Otherwise there might have been considerable delay," he said. I Harriman said Nixon had asked him to be available for consultation on the expanded negotiations, and he will do so. "I will be glad to participate," he said ments in the legs that carry an oxygen supply system, heating elements and a ventilation system for pumping warm or cool air into the space suit. The temperature of the air is automatically controlled by a mechanism built into the suit. The Tass description of the suit made it clear that the cosmonaut could move around in orbit without the oxygen hose connected to the ship's air supply. It did not say how long he could survive independently in space. ' : " " " " " The Soyuz mission has been described as a step toward construction of an orbiting space platform... A ..Soviet, engineer wrote in today's Pravda that Soviet space scientists consider it "much more sensible" for cosmonauts to operate from an orbiting platform instead of making an earth launch every time. | Orbiting stations would be of "great help" in training cosmonauts for flights to other planets that might take years, Pravda said. Looking far into' the future, the newspaper asserted it is possible that industrial production of such things as ball bearings could be carried out in space. The advantage would be that the ball bearings could be made with "ideally spherical form" because of the vacuum. Five major damage accidents occurred on rain-slick Mt.
