Wed., April 2S, 1173 GKEELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 2S Saigon, VC give radically different plans on S. Wet accord · fAHIS (AP) - south Vict- wm and the Viet Cong today presented radically different proposals for reaching a political solution to the continuing violence in South Vietnam. :.· Al 'he eighth session of their deadlocked talks on the political stalemate that has succeeded the war, the Saigon government presented a to-point program and the Viet Cong pro- posed a solution in six points. Both called for new elections, but there was still wide divergence on the details. The proposals came near the end of the 90-day deadline set by the Jan. 27 Paris peace pact for reaching agreement on political issues. Nguyen Luu Vien, the South Vietnamese deputy premier, suggested signing a preliminary agreement on April 27 as a way of meeting the deadline despite continuing disagreement. But the Viet Cong rejected the whole South Vietnamese package. Nguyen Van Hieu, a Viet Cong minister of state, said Saigon's plan was "nothing but yet another maneuver of diversion and propaganda containing nothing concrete or positive and designed to deceive world public opinion." The Viet Cong plan presented by Hieu called for an immediate end to the continuing hostilities in South Vietnam and strict observance of the cease- fire. It also demanded release of all political prisoners in South Vietnam and "immediate and full"guarantees of democratic freedoms. Hieu said these two points must be settled before any political settlement. Both proposals called for establishment of a national council of reconciliation and concord as prescribed in the Jan. 27 peace accord. But the Viet Cong plan would give the council explicit responsibility for carrying out the proposed elections. The Saigon plan said the council should merely "com- plete the law on the procedures and modialities" of the elections. This appeared to be a fundamental difference. The Viet Cong would participate in the national council and thus would have a hand in organizing the elections if the council took over this responsibility. In another apparently essential difference, the Saigon gov- ernment demanded the withdrawal of North Vietnamese troops from South Vietnam as a prior condition for the elections. The Viet Cong proposal said only that the question of armed forces in South Vietnam "will be settled by the two South Vietnamese sides without foreign interference." The rival plans also contained the seeds of more dis- agreement on what the elections would be about. The Viet Cong insisted the voters should choose a constituent assembly to fashion a new contitution. Saigon's plan, although it apparently dropped previous insistence on retaining the present constitution, did not specify whether the new assembly would work out a new constitution. Saturday Review plans to reorganize under bankruptcy laws SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The publishers of the four Saturday Review magazines have filed bankruptcy petitions here and say they plan to merge the publications with World magazine to form a new biweekly. The merged publication would be run by Norman Cousins, now World's editor and for Indian 1st fatality of Wounded Knee ; RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) -An Indian wounded last week in ; an exchange of gunfire with ·federal officers at Wounded Knee died today. It was the first death since militant Indians look over the reservation '· village 58 days ago in a protest that has been marked by sporadic gunfire. Frank Clearwater, 47. died 1 today in a Rapid City hospital of a head wound suffered last Tuesday during what federal officials called the heaviest gunfire exchange during the occupation. A total of 11 persons, including two federal marshals, have been reported wounded since followers of the American Indian Movement took over the (own. · Clcarwater's widow, Morning Star, 37, told authorities in Rapid City she wants her husband's body buried at Wounded Knee. Mrs. Clearwater, who said she is three months pregnant, was with her husband in the Pine Ridge Reservation village when he was woimdori. Clear- water was evacuated by government helicopter to Rapid City where he underwent brain surgery a few hours after the. incident. Mrs. Clearwater had earlier said her husband was lying on a cot in a small church in the village when shots fired from a federal bunker went through the walls and struck him in the head. Clearwater was one of four Indians reported wounded during the 90-minute exchange of gunfire last week. Indian leaders said the other three suffered wounds in the arms, hand and feet and did not require evacuation. Mrs. Clearwater said she and her husband walked past government blockades into the village only two nights before he was wounded. She said neither she nor her husband were members of AIM, but that both sympathized with the goals of the village insurgents and had traveled from their home in Cherokee, N.C., to South Dakota the weekend before they entered the hamlet.

Saturday Review's publishers said the four monthly magazines would suspend publication until completion of the reorganization under the federal Bankruptcy Act. In New York, Cousins called the merger "a natural one" and tentatively set the first issue for early summer. At the magazine's offices here after the announcement Tuesday, about 100 employes- sipping warm bourbon from paper cups--milled about unhappily. Some sobbed. Cousins subsequently confirmed fears that the new magazine could not af- ford to continue many of them on the payroll. Cousins said the biweekly will be called "World-Saturday Review," "Saturday Review of the World" or something similar. Frederick S. Wyle, chairman of the Saturday Review's executive, committee, said the merger between the 48-year-old publication and World magazine will incorporate "the best features of both." A group headed by John J. Veronis and Nicolas H. Charney took over Saturday Review in December 1971. They later moved the magazine from New York to San Francisco and changed the weekly format to four monthlies dealing sepa- rately with the arts, science, education and society. "Splitting the weekly into four monthlies is a very expensive undertaking--a 'little larger than our resources," Wyle said. However, he defended the monthly formats, saying "the total business, editorial and publishing idea was good." The publication's bankruptcy petititon, including two affiliates--Media Ventures Inc. and Magad Development Corp.-listed current assets of $1,864,527 and liabilities of $3,479,489. It listed 322 creditors, the largest of which was McCall Publishing Co. of Dayton, Ohio, with $1,784,000. A separate petition by the book publishing firm, Saturday Review Industries, Inc., showed debts outweighing assets by more than $2.1 million. "The Saturday Review is not dead," Wyle told employes. "All we arc doing is pausing in the publishing ... of the magazine between now and the time the reorganization is completed." Cousins said the combined magazine will be devoted to the arts and society. Editorial supplements on science and education will be included in alternate issues. During Cousins' tenure, Saturday Review's circulation grew from 14,000 lo a total of 030,000 weekly subscribers. As m o n t h l i e s , the publishers claimed 800,000 subscribers to one or all of the four magazines. World magazine subscriptions, which have grown to 160,000 in nine months of publishing, will continue without interruption, Cousins said. All Saturday Review subscribers will re- .ceive the combined publication for the remainder of their subscriptions. Cousins said in an interview that he was delighted to be associated once again with Saturday Review. "Saturday Review has a tradition worth maintaining. I am glad to devote myself to that purpose," he said. Cousins said he will meet in San Francisco next week with Saturday Review's 100 staffers to discuss their futures. "Naturally, we can't keep very many of them," Cousins said. "We'll stretch il to (he limit, but four magazines meant an awful lot of people." Veronis and Charney also had established Saturday Review book clubs and printed programs tor New York's Lincoln Center of the performing arts. Cousins said he Ihinks (he organization should not try to compete with (he magazine's book club advertisers. "I am encouraging them to make other arrangements for the book clubs. "I don't want to dissipate our energies," he added. "I Ihink we should jusl concentrate on pulling out a magazine." dated April 25, 1956 were found by a woman who was looking for relics. Stark said he and some other men removed the dynamite caps and destroyed them Tuesday but left the explosive powder for the Army crew to handle today. He said the explosives become more dangerous with age.
