. f-'-if.-.a.-.-j.. 4-q PRESS, Binghamton, N. fCy Believed Rethinking U.S. Visit WASHINGTON (AP) Nixon administration officials say Vice- President Nguyen Cao Ky may now be reconsidering his visit to the United States to attend a "march for victory" raily here next month. The , opposition of key Republican and Democratic senators on both sides of the Vietnam war issue is expected to . be a persuasive dissuader. In addition Vietnamese friends of the vice president have been advising him the situation is not favorable at this time for a U.S. visit under the auspices of the Rev. Carl Mclntire, a fundamentalist radio preacher. Adopting , something of a , "don't-call-us, we'll call you" attitude,, officials were vague about the Ky visit. According to one knowledgeable source, Jne Ky visit has been left dangling. "We, still have had no formal application saying that he is coming and requesting appropriate consideration," explained one official. ? State Department officials have taken pains neither to .welcome the visit nor denounce it. Instead they are looking the other way, obviously hoping Ky would notx make an appearance here that could sharpen opposition to the Vietnamization program. , Mclntyre flew to Saigon last.; weekend to persuade Ky to stand up under what he called pressure from the White House and State Department to stay away from the Oct. 3 rally designed to encourage support for an all-out military effort in Vietnam. Some State Department spokesmen said they are hope-ful Ky might reconsider , the visit which they fear would sharpen domestic divisions ' over the war. Meanwhile, Senate critics, who include supporters of the Nixon policy, were explicit in condemning the trip. Inastrongly worded speech, Sen. Gordon Allott, v R-Colo., said Thursday Ky's ' acceptance of Mclntire's invitation can only intensify U.S. dissent over the war. Allott, chairman of the Sen-j ate's Republican Policy Committee, often echoes the President's views in the Senate. 1 iVo Reconsideration ? Ky Aide Contends ' SAIGON (AP) - A senior aide to Nguyen Cao Ky said today the South Vietnamese Vice-President is not reconsidering his visit to the United States to attend a "March for Victory1" rally, and his decision right now is "irreversible." "He will tell the American ,' people why we are fighting," said Col. Phan Van Minh, i Ky's chief of staff. "He is not 1 reconsidering. He is all set to go. We are working on his s p e e c h . AH arrangements have been made." Indictment Of Niarchos Is Rejected ATHENS (AP)-A panel of lower court judges rejected to- - day a public prosecutor's proposal that Greek shipping multimillionaire Stavros Niarchos be indicted in connection with the death of his wife. The prosecutor said he would appeal the decision to a higher court. Prosecutor Constantine Fa- - foutis, who has been handling the case since Eugenia . Niarchos died on her hus- ) band's private island last May 4, said he would file an appeal within the next 10 days in accordance with Greek legisla- tion. ' The three-man lower court panel rejected a recommenda-' tion that Niarchos be indicted :,on charges of causing bodily injury leading to his wife's death, ' A spokesman for Niarchos issued a statement in London that said: "It can now be disclosed that the leading British expert Dr. Donald Teare, professor of ' London University, who has ' f specialized in forensic medi-1 cine for 32 years during which he has conducted no less than ' 8 5", 0 0 0 autopsies including . some 1,200 cases of barbiturate poisoning, was invited 'to comment on the Piraeus district attorney's report to the ' judicial tribunal. "In a signed statement, Prof. Teare said that he is in full agreement with the findings of his Greek forensic colleagues . . ." - A board of medical experts had previously ruled that Mrs. Niarchos, 42, had died from an : oerdose of barbiturates.

'Neitf Paris Peace Plan Looks Old WASHINGTON (AP) - The Viet Cong's "new" eight-point peace plan has a familiar and unacceptable look to Washington of ficials: . , Under the enemy ' offer, presented in Paris Thursday by Viet Cong Foreign Minister Nguyen Thi Binh, Saigon's Thieu-Ky government would be replaced and the United States would have to promise: to get its troops out of South Vietnam by next June 30. In return, the Viet Cong would refrain from attacking the withdrawing allied troops and would discuss future peace arrangements including release of prisoners. U.S. authorities here and in , Paris have agreed to scan the Binh proposal carefully for any possible new openings. But in general, they said, it appears to be a retread of past offers. Although a-Viet Cong . spokesman said the plan con-, tains new points, the text received here showed Mrs. Binh . herself described the material only as an elaboration of the Viet Cong's previous 10-point proposal. Officials here noted the enemy already had proposed a time limit for U.S. withdrawals. Last December the enemy offered a six-month limit. The 10-point plan and other North Vietnamese-Viet Cong proposals have provided for negotiating a prisoner release after the fighting ends. And ouster of the Thieu-Ky regime is standard fare in enemy demands. U.S. officials said the American ambassador at the Paris peace talks, David K. E. Bruce, is willing to talk with Hanoi-Viet Cong envoys about any point they may put for- ward as part of unconditional discussions. But the United States, they said, will not accept such demands as conditions for the beginning of serious peace negotiations. Thus, the prospect for progress toward a negotiated end to the Vietnam war does not appear any brighter now than when the Paris talks began Vh years ago. Humorist Quits U.

Perelman," 66, best known for his sardonic commentary on the American scene, says he will move to London next month permanently. - , Calling England "a far more rational society than our own," Perelman said, "Today, the news in this country is so filled with insanity and violence that the newspapers, from which I derive many of my ideas, have scant room for the sort of thing that turns me on."

Catholics Ask Larger Layman Role BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) A congress of leading Born a n Catholic theologians called Thursday for letting laymen share in the selection of popes, bishops and priests. The resolution was approved 14S to 20 at the six-day meeting on the future of the church. The theologians did not; agree on how laymen should take part in the election of church leaders. For centuries, popes have been chosen by the College ' of Cardinals, The Pope appoints bishops and priests are ordained by bishops. The conference also voted, 156 to 19, to call on the Church to fight for freedom and guard carefully against any link with "the powers of oppression." Christian communities must act to free the oppressed, whether victims of racial discrimination, industrial societies or totalitarian regimes, the resolution said. Other resolutions approved included one denouncing discrimination against women and another stressing the importance of small Church communities. .The latter was considered important because of the Catholic Church's traditional emphasis on unity and universality.

Two men vere arrested on first degree assault charges, and two others were being sought in connection with the Thursday evening attack. "You men are not being given the tools of your trade," a campus police union official told a meeting of officers. Many of the security guards refused to go on patrol Thursday night. Campus police are allowed to carry nightsticks, handcuffs and spray cans of the chemical Mace. Officers said they were forbidden under threat ot arrest to carry sidearms. The two campus officers were slashed in a scuffle In front of Hayes Hall, the university's administration building. Four men, being questioned hv five unarmed cammis oa- t r o 1 m e n , suddenly pulled knives and attacked the officers, police said. The four were being questioned about an earlier knife attack near an edge of the campus. William C. Robertson Jr., vice president of the campus police union, . said the labor group would not order a halt in patrols. He added that the union would support any officer who refused to go on duty. ."If you feel your life is in danger : going out on that campus, the union will back you all the. way," Robertson told the officers. "This trouble today is not an isolated case," one officer said. "We have things like this happening three or four nights a week. Just the other night a guy came at me with a tire iron." Another officer said banning sidearms might work for smaller , schools, but law enforcement at the University of Buffalo required them. V "This university is a different situation. We're not policemen at a small college with a bunch of farmers who want to just study. We have revolutionaries here," he said. Robertson said Dr. Robert Ketter, the university president, told him the university system's central adminis-t r a t i o n ' ' w o n 't p ermit sidearms at this time." $1$00 Lost As Cornell V. 'Riot' Staged ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - A 24-year-old waving a wine bottle turned out to be the highlight of a "riot" called for Thursday night on the Cornell University campus. However, a crowd of 200 gathered near the campus store, threw rocks and broke three plate glass windows worth $1,500 as well as smaller windows in at least two more buildings. False fire alarms also were turned in during the "riot," scheduled in posters and handbills for 9 p.m. The man waving the bottle talked "double-talk" to the crowd and asked "Are you concerned with the v revolution? Raise your hands." "Are you concerned with the Mets?" he queried. "Raise your hands." ' University officials said advertisements for , the "riot" were circulated on the Cornell campus and at junior and senior high schools in the city. They bore the name of no sponsor, but listed four reasons for a gathering and told participants to add any they wanted. T ., They were: President Nixon's speech on violence delivered Wednesday at Kansas State University; 7 To protest the arrest Wednesday night on campus of David Burak, a Cornell graduate and activist' leader, who had been threatened with arrest if he ventured onto the campus.

Judge Orders Ottinger's Conservation Party Back on November Ballot ALBANY (GNS) A ruling by a state Supreme Court judge Thursday put Senatorial hopeful Richard L. Ottinger's "Conservation Party" back on the November ballot. The decision by Justice A. Franklin Mahoney of Troy was a reversal of a ruling made a week ago by Secretary of State John P. Lo-' menzo, who claimed the name "Conservation" was too similar to the already-existing "Conservative" Party. Although Justice Mahoney's written opinion wasn't immediately available to the press, it was reported that he reversed the Lomenzo ruling on the basis that the pubhc understands "conservation" and "conservative" as distinctly different words. It is expected that the Con-servative Party, which brought the original challenge, will appeal Mahoney's .decision. If it's allowed to stand, however, Ottinger will appear on two lines Democratic and Conservation on the November ballot. The new party's symbol will be a leaping fish.
