Hanoi Peace Offer Sincere: Briton WASHINGTON (UPI) British Foreign Secretary Geftrge Bfowh Said yesterday I at least fmrt of Hanoi's latest peace'feeler appeared sin- cerej but Secretary of State Dean Rusk apparently disagreed. The two met for 2Vz hours at the State Department, discussing a wide range of subjects that included U.S. worries that Britain might abandon its military commitments in Southeast Asia earlier than planned. As he boarded an airplane for New York en route to London, Brown told reporters he talked by telephone with President Johnson in Texas, but the foreign secretary did not disclose the nature of the conversation. BROWN, emphasizing that he spoke for himself and not Rusk, told reporters that part of the latest Hanoi statement suggesting peace talks appeared sincere. He said: ". . .There is clearly a part of that speech which looks as though Hanoi has made a significant move and that it does in fact want talks to start. "There are other parts of the speech that are not so encouraging. It's important that we make sure as soon as we can just how significant the Carrier Planes Collide; 1 Dead HONOLULU (UPI) - Two Navy antisubmarine planes crashed in midair yesterday after taking off from the carrier Yorktown. One person was killed and six others injured. The Navy said the twin-engine tracking planes collided during maneuvers off the island of Kauai, 65 miles northwest of Honolulu. One plane crashed at sea while the other limped into Barking Sands Military Reservation on Kauai. Wajjjnea Hospital on Kauai said three of the injured were hurt seriously, while the others suffered minor injuries. Their identities were withheld pending notification of next of kin. speech was and what part of it is the basis we've been looking for." BUT U.S. officials said Rusk, despite considerable behind - the - scenes probing through diplomatic channels, had found nothing to change the administration's impression that Hanoi's statement was only a propaganda move. The statement by North Vietnam Foreign Minister Nguyen Duy Trinh Dec. 30 said the Communists "will hold, talks" if the United States stops bombing the North and ends "all acts of war" against North Vietnam. Rusk told newsmen last week Trinh's speech might be "only a propaganda ploy," but said the United States would seek clarification in the hope that he was sincere in wanting to talk peace. But since Rusk's news conference, the administration has become increasingly convinced that Hanoi was staging another propaganda offensive and would not be willing to make any reciprocal military reduction if the U.S. bombing stopped. Rusk did not talk with reporters yesterday and administration officials declined to disclose exactly what Rusk said to Brown. The foreign secretary explained that "it is not my intention to breach the deep confidentiality of the talks by saying what was discussed.' But he conceded that the Trinh statement and planned British withdrawals from Southeast Asia were discussed. BRITAIN has announced plans to withdraw from the area east of Suez in the mid- 1970s, but would like to get out before then. II was not known what Rusk said about this, but officials have told newsmen within the past few days that Rusk and other administration figures were unhappy about the prospect. These officials said the United States would make it clear that it was not going to step in and pick up commitments to defend points which the British might abandon.
