S. ambassador in Saigon, has met frequently with Thieu since Johnson ordered the total halt In bombing of North Vietnam, and some of their meetings have been secret to avoid publicity.

S. officials indicated Saturday that they now expected broadened Paris peace talks including South Vietnam to begin shortly, but they refused to speculate on the exact date. They left the impression that President Nguyen ''an Thieu of South Vietnam was gradually coming around to acceptance of the idea of taking part in discussions that also would include the Viet Cong in some way. Because past negotiating sessions in Paris usually have been held on Wednesdays, the earliest expectable date for the start of expanded talks would be Nov. 20 next Wednesday but U. S. officials would not hazard a guess. There clearly was no deadline in Administration circles.
