Viets, Says Laird - : : By RICHARD HOMAN j and MURREY MARDER i The Washington Post ; WASHINGTON - Under revised battlefield orders tha 1 limit Hie combat role of American forces, the United States is successfully shifting the burden of tlie war in Vietnam to the South. Vietnamese government, Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird said Thursday. While peace negotiations in Paris show little progress, Laird said in a Pentagon press conference, the process of "Vietnamizalion," the Nixon administration's alternate hope for disengaging American forces, is going well. . Though Laird would not disclose details of the new tactical orders that he said went to U.S. commanders in late sum mer, he said they spelled out the "protective reaction" policy that replaced earlier instructions to put "maximum pressure" on the enemy. "A greater responsibility has been given to the forces of South Vietnam and the Viel- namizalion program which we have put into effect in this administration is working," Laird said, "1 think it's important for us' all lo understand that." Laird revealed little unexpected news about Ihc war, but repeatedly stressed the importance of Vielnamization. Laird also revealed that the administration has downgraded the significance of the level o combat in South Vietnam in bringing the war lit an end Other administration officials confirmed the shift of emphasis privately. The shift came as fighting clipped to another low point. The administration's heavies stress now,.'Laird said, will be on the "dual approach" of "ne- gotilations in Paris and Viet- namizalion" of the war. This Â·Â· approach downgrades Hie third of ihe three criteria originally set by Presidenl Nixon to govern the pace pi U.S. troop withdrawals: "The level of fighting in Soutli Vietnam, whether or not the offensive action of Ihe enemy recedes . . ." Laird said that "Ihe level of violence and infiltration" will continue lo be looked at "very carefully." Bui, he said, "it seems to us the best place lo :ive signals, however, is in 'aris, and if this is some sort of a signal, I would think lhat it would help if it were given in Paris." Larid appeared to be saying :hat if North Vietnam and the Viet Cong want to claim there s political significance lo their .-educed level of combat, they vill have to register that claim n the Paris negolilalions.

Name the controversy and Finch is into it-school desegregation, dirty air, consumer protection, welfare reform, food and drug safety, student unrest. The California politician and old buddy of President Nixon can claim several notable victories in administration skirmishes. They include the far-reaching income guaranlee welfare plan and the restrained White House position on college upheavals. But Finch took bis lumps in the aborted appointment of Dr. John Knowles as the nation's chief health officer and in the administration's revised school desegregation policies.

By G. C. THELEN Jr. Â· Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Robert H. Finch lias paid a price in his ascent from lieutenant governor of California lo national prominence as a trusted Nixon cabinet officer. He finds the Washington pace frenzied and the paperwork I , overwhelming. The peonage ^TM!JÂ°^ demands and political pressures are heavy. The national problems in corner are abstract and slow to yield solution. Frayed Nerves In short, the affable yet shy 44-year-old secretary- of Health, Education and Welfare lias a slight case of frayed nerves. But forget the headaches, Finch shrugs, "Ihe job is far more exciting than I had even ad- M1 ovc ,. . ^ jm . b pad on legislation by working l lis the floor. Paper Work Pile "I spend much of my time now before congressional committees. And the paper work in this department is incredible." Finch describes stale problems as more manageable than national ones. "There's an abstraction lo the federal level I never felt at the stale level," he says. "I could visualize almost any one of Ihe problems in a way I can't do here. "In many cases now I'm looking at files whether about ci"il rights compliance, food and drugs problems or radiation levels. And I'm really not salisfied at the kind of data I'm getting," Finch says. Even t h e p o l i c y breakthroughs, he observes, have payoffs far- in the future. -. -''There's a lot of satisfaction out of the fact we got a presidential message on population 'or the first time in history," Pinch says. "But we don't have T system that can really tell you low many children you didn't the current level of combat, all through the summer that subject was given major attention by the State Department and by the White House. On July 2, Secretary of State William P. Rogers said, "if the rate ol combat falls off to a very small level, then obviously our plans will change." Â·Speaking of the administration program to turn more of the war over lo the Vietnamese, Laird said: "I believe it is essential lhat the American people also understand what Vielnamization is all about. They should know why Vietnamizalion, in Ihe absence of progress in Paris, offers the best prospect for minimizing American casualties while resolving (lie war as quickly as possible without abandoning our basic objective." In recent months, Laird said, U.S. officials in Vietnam, 'working closely with ihe people of South Vietnam," lave "achieved a real momentum behoind Vietnamizalion. As examples, he ciled the recent transfer of amphibious activities in the Mekong Delta from U.S. to South Vietnamese 'orces and the assumption by he South Vietnamese Air Force of ils first significant combal iir support role, with two squadrons of American-supplied A-37 attack planes. lives. It certainly' runs counter to the traditional Soviet emphasis on ouutput rather than cost and the corollary preference for increasing production by increasing the work.force rather than, worrying about individual productivity. In theory, each factory now is allocated' a total wage fund through the slate planning machinery and the centralized ministries responsible for particular industries. The fund is calculated by.complex formulae based on the numbers of workers in carefully graded jobs needed to produce the factory's planned output -- including allowances for extra pay to those who surpass their jobs' work irms. If the number of workers is reduced, so is the wage fund. There is no incentive to increase efficiency. Most plants have more workers than they reed and, in the words of Soviet economist Aleksandr Birman, "Loafers gel paid as much as good workers." The Shchekino idea of more from fewer appears to be working despite Ihe weighl of tradition against it. The Central Committee noted that in two years, labor productivity has risen 87 per cent and total volume of production by CO per cent while Ihe number of workers has shrunk by 870. No figures have been made public for the value of production or the actuual number of personnel. The Central Committee, however, in approving the retraining of workers and ;cncral propagandizing for the idea lhat was part of Ihe Sch'- ekino Experiment, said that 5,000 workers had had their skills upgraded. The 'lolal must be several limes thai. The Central Committee accordingly recommended thai parly and government organizations at all important levels should "mobilize" workers for production of more by fewer. It also "assigned" ministries and departments the job.of. or- Dismissal Asked Of Suit Against RM Gas Storage DENVER (AP) - The gov ernment has asked U.S. Dis- Irict Court to dismiss a suit seeking lo halt storage of nerve jas at Rocky Mountain Arsenal. In a petition Thursday, Asst, U.S. Atty. Gen. James Richards said the decision of the Army lo store Ihe gas at Denver is not subject to review by he courts. Former U.S. Rep. B y r o n Johnson of Denver filed the suit his summer, claiming storage f the gas was hazardous. works, this was far from an order for full speed ahead. Bui for Ihis particular economic reform, it appeared to. be what Lenin once called two steps forward. The' subsequent one step back may yet materialize, judging by the mixed success that econimic reform has generally had here since it was started in 19C5. Â· The "proceed with caution" may have political significance because productivity reforms are a favorite of Soviet party leader Leonid Brezhnev. :If the need 'for unanimous decision in a collective leadership- compelled him -to accept ^a compromise, it is worth noting.
