Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier New - gahinUy, July U, MM- Pi* tint Hanoi Hard-Line Message Expected TOKYO (AP) - Radio Hanoi seeks world attention Sunday for a message of undefined import. Hinting there will be an important statement, the North Vietnamese station said it will "release a special transmission" at 8:45 a.m. — 9:45 p.m. EOT Saturday. There was no indication of the topic, though North Viet Nam's threat to try captive American pilots on war crimes charges has been among the chief topics of recent Red transmissions. Perhaps forerunning another hard-line dedaratMR, the Hanoi newspaper Nhan Dan declared in a broadcast dispatch today that Americans are impudent and stupid for not recognizing that "we are determined .to fight, fight hard, fight to the end until the U.S. aggressors are completely defeated." "Do they want to talk with guns?" Nhan Dan asked rhetorically. "Well, they will be met with guns and bullets." Speculation that the special broadcast may concern war issues arose against a background that included a revived flurry of peace moves, intensified American air strikes north of the 17th Parallel and rising optimism among U.S. and South Vietnamese officials at the course of the conflict. President Johnson, whose repeated efforts to get negotiations started have been spurned by the Ho Chi Minh regime, suggested two weeks ago that the Communists "don't really expect a military victory." Only today Prune Minister Indira Gandhi of India, winding up a four-day visit to Moscow, said the Soviet Union has re- fused to make any efforts to arrange peace talks unless Hanoi asks it to do so. Various American lawmakers and government leaders have warned the North Vietnamese against execution of American risoners. If Hanoi carries out that threat, said Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt, "the American people will demand the complete destruction of North Viet Nam." WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chickasawba District, Mississippi County, Arkansas.

Gerald Wayne Finley, is hereby warned to appear within thirty days in the court named in the caption hereof and answer tne complaint of the plaintiff, Norma Joyce Finley.

There was no announcement concerning the findings. Reporting again on an angle sf which U.S. officials have disclaimed knowledge, the Red station charged the United States is bombing North Viet Nam's dikes and irrigation sys- em "in an attempt to realize their dark design to massacre he people by flood, water-logging and drought."

"But after VIET NAM (Continued from Page One) any sense at all," the vice president said, "I would think they would be very hesitant to take that step." In an interview, Aiken blamed Moscow for encouraging the North Vietnamese to step up their resistance. "No persons in the world wants to establish peace more than President Johnson," Aiken said. "The Soviets could help bring this matter to the conference table. But I fear they want to bog us down to the fullest extent in Viet Nam and put themselves in a position to attack us. The situation never looked worse in our efforts to head off a nuclear war." * * * Mansfield told the Senate he has not lost hope that the conflict will be settled at the conference table through negotiations. But he agreed with the 18, headed by Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, that U.S. prisoner executions would bring the war to "a peril point of no return." Sens. Rzobert Kennedy, D- N.Y., and Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., rose also to endorse the statement by the 18, which was signed by, among others, Chairman J.W. Fulbright of the enate Foreign Relations Committee. Robert Kennedy said that regardless of anyone's opinion about the U.S. bombing of areas near Hanoi, execution of American prisoners would be "an intolerable act. . .of barbarism."

He said Secretary of State Dean Rusk had voiced assurances that Viet Cong and >Iorth Vietnamese prisoners in he hands of the Saigon government are getting just treatment under International Red Cross supervision. Communist dispatches from Hanoi have indicated that the trials may start July 20 or Aug. 4. There has been no official word, however, from the United States or from the government of North Viet Nam.

Robert F. Kennedy has urged public hearings as part of a "searching re-examination" of plans to extend the west front of the U. S. Capitol. The New York Democrat said Friday impartial experts should be invited to testify at the hearings. He said the extension plan was approved without such hearings and apparently without "adequate consideration to the esthetic or historic factors involved." Sen. A. Willis Robertson, D- Va., joined 14 other senators in sponsoring a resolution for an independent study of the cost of restoring the original west front walls. The extension was approved by the five-member Commission for the Extension of the Capitol as a means of replacing the present walls that are in danger of collapsing. The commission suggested the extension to include additional office space and restaurant facilities. Robertson said Friday there now is office space in the Capi- rhl "which is not beine utilized. additional space is preposter- nlle " ous. WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk fias denied again that foreign aid is a backdoor commitment for tilt use of U. S. armed forces to defend countries receiving aid. In a letter read to the Senate Friday, Rusk said aid legislation "has no bearing on commitments to employ United States forces to assist in the collectiv« self-defense of other countries." Instead, the secretary said in he letter, such commitments 'are made, pursuant to our aws and the Constitution, where the national interest requires and not because' the United States is or is not supplying the foreign country in question with foreign aid." Rusk said it is "important that any confusion on this issue x removed" before the Senate takes up the foreign aid 'program next week. He said the suggestion that foreign aid can lead to military involvement lias become one of the issues -hi the debate over the program^- rumTAT rvuvrvnTirc hit would say.
