Kissinger says his trip to Hanoi next week is aimed at opening a new phase iii U.S-North Vietnamese rela-' tions, moving the two countries from hostilities to normalization. "President Nguyen Van Thieu, meanwhile, borrowing ·all phrase from President Nixon, has declared that the United States has a responsibility to provide military aid to South Vietnam to insure a "peace with honor." ;;Both made their remarks in separate televised interviews. Kissinger, White House adviser, likened his mission to his first trip to Peking. "The basic purpose," he said, "is to established a new relationship .'. . to establish some sort of dialogue . . to exchange ideas." Kissinger said there had been armistices before but never a "genuine peace," His trip, he said, would be an "exploration mission to determine how to move from hostilities to normalization." Diplomatic relations, he said, were still "far down the road." He sought to separate that · process from a discussion of aid to Hanoi, which he said he would "discuss in principle" during his visit. But he emphasized that while the United States was ready to participate in the reconstruction of North Vietnam, that was a matter to be discussed in the context of peace. He reiterated that aid was not part of the negotiations to end the war. Thieu, in his remarks, said that "if the peace is violated by the Communists, I think that President Nixon will not consider it as a peace. So I think the responsibility of the United States will not be accomplished and I think that we do not call that 'peace with honor,' " he said.- By responsibility, Thieu said, he meant economic support and military aid in the form of American air power if the Communists engage in massive cease-fire violations. "We never ask U.S. troops to come back here," he said. Asked how compliant he expected the other side to be with the cease-fire terms, Thieu replied, "I think that they will continue the guerrilla on the remote rear and they continue the infiltration and they would like to capture as many as possible the hamlets and the people." U.S. aid is essential, he stressed. "If I have the continuation of full support, economic and military, from the United States, the 1 Communists will never win in South Vietnam. They never win by means . . . and they can never win by ideology of psychology or by politics, no," Thieu said. LOS ANGELES '(AP) Pleading a bad memory, a Defense., Department official has refused to confirm or deny the sworn word of a former staff member that they had orders .to; remove from government files reports which could exonerate Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo, the .defendants in the Pentagon papers case. Charles Hinkle, director of the Defense Department's Office of Security Review, gave these answers to most questions yesterday while testifying at;the Pentagon papers trial: "I -have no recollection,^ "1 don't.recall" and "I can only say'I don't recollect." Retired Air Force Lt. ; Col. Edward A. Miller, had just fin-' ished testifying .that Hinfcle personally told 'him in 1971 that a report by Miller which would harm the, government case against Ellsberg and Russo had been ordered "removed from files" in the Office of Security Review. * At the time, Miller: was; an analyst in the::office. Miller testified that Hinkle wrote a memorandum on the incident and filed it. ' . " But Hinkle said he couldn't remember the conversation or the memo. He also testified that he could not remember whether Miller was assigned' to do a special study' of the Pentagon papers, or that he read any of the study, or whether, in his 19 years in the office, he was ever ordered to suppress any papers. Ellsberg, 41, and Russo, 36, "are charged with espionage, conspiracy and theft in connection with the release .to news media in 1971 of the top secret Pentagon history of the Vietnam war. The government has been seeking to show that the release could have harmed national defense and helped an enemy. But Miller's report, and the 13 cited by the judge, contained official evaluations that the papers were worthless to an enemy when released. The defense says they were suppressed because of this. Cars are scooped ,, DENVER (UPI) -- J.amee A. Howton, 23, has been charged with criminal mischief. Police said he used the giant scoop on his earth-moving machine to lift two illegally parked cars out of his machine's path.
