Harold E.

Administration informants said the only questions for decision were those of exact form and timing. They were not hopeful about a prompt or positive response from North Vietnam or the Viet Cong in light of past rejection of U.N. appeals. What is new in the present situation in Washington, some officials . privately admit, is the sense that losses suffered by the Communist forces in the South and by North Vietnam as a result of U.S.. bombing may be reaching a point where the enemy leadership will be forced to reassess its whole policy. If so, the war may be close to a turning point. Depending on events between now anr his arrival, Wilson's visit with Johnson could assume special import, diplomats believe. The British and Soviet governments hold key positions in the diplomatic machinery which created North and South Vietnam in 1954 and U.S. officials have long believed that if and when a peace breakthrough comes in Vietnam it might vei? well be managed by the prime ministers of Britain and the Soviet Union. U.S. officials say such efforts as the Wilson meeting, the U.N. probe and the careful manipulation of holiday truces must be continued because of uncertainty over when and whether a break may come—and also to demonstrate to the world U.S. interest in peace-seeking. But military assessments of the war recently given President Johnson by Gen. William C. Westmoreland cover at least another two years of the war, and many authorities here now accept the notion an end of the conflict may very well come not through negotiations but through a fading away of Communist operations.
