HIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent PARIS : (AP) : — The United States and North Vietnam are moving toward a showdown in the Paris peace talks.on the issue of ending U.S. bombing of North Vietnamese territory, and there is no compromise in Sight.

U.S. officials say they believe that North Vietnam's main aim is still to win the war by coordinated action on three fronts— trying to undermine the U.S..supported government in '"Saigon, pressing the United States for concessions in .the Paris talks; and striving for new military victories in South Vietnam. A long-range secondary aim, they say, may be to negotiate a compromise ' settlement, for which their bargaining position would be strengthened, by-whatever gains they can .make in South Vietnam. .

NICHOLSON Associated Press Writer BOSTON ; .(AP) .— Television films of Dr. Benjamin Spock standing on .the steps of the Justice Department, building in Washington, exhorting young irien-to continue. resisting the draft, have been shown; to a federal jury trying the pediatrician and four others on- antidraft "Remember, the r greatest weapon the government has is division and we must not attack each other, we ..must stick together," Spock was'heard to say in the film of an antidraft rally last Oct. 20. Also seen and heard in the films projected Thursday was another defendant, Yale Chaplain William Sloane Coffin Jr., 43. -.-.'• On trial with the 65-year-old baby doctor and Coffin are Mitchell Goodman, 44, a New York writer and teacher; Marcus Raskin, 33, a Washington research director; and Michael Ferber, 23, a graduate student . at Harvard. All are charged tit with conspiring to counsel, aid and abet young Americans to evade and avoid the draft. The government contends that during the rally, Coffin, Spock, Goodman, Raskin and others attempted, to hand,over a briefcase containing 185 draft'cards and 172 classification cards to John McDonough, an assistant deputy U.S. attorney general, at a meeting inside the-building in a deliberate violation of Selective Service laws. The incident is one of several upon which. the government based its indictments against defendants, who face five- year prison terms and $10,000 fines.if convicted. Spock's remarks during the meeting, McDonough: said, were confined to a condemnation of the Vietnam war and the claim that President: Johnson was trying-"to save face" by continuing the war. ; McDonough did not accept the cards, but.the government says the visitors left the briefcase on a table as they walked out.

He said he did not include the figures on which it is based because they are classified. Ambassador Robert W. Komer, in charge of the U.S. pacification effort in Vietnam, acknowledged in a March 28 interview with the AP.that "we un- back" in the Tet offensive. He said, however, that only about 200, of,some 8,500 hamlets with a degree.,of -government presence had reverted to Viet Cong control.
