In a dramatic address, the pontiff urged "the pursuit of honest and sincere negotiations" and begged world leaders "to avoid any action that could harm the climate of understanding so necessary for the success of the current talks" in Paris. The Pope told 150 Vietnamese clergyman and laymen that he was sure their embattled homeland would someday "know better days." Speaking in French at the home of the papal nuncio, where he is staying while he is in the Philippines, the pontiff asked his audience: "But, you will say, what is the Pope doing to help us attain that peace which everyone longs for? "Dear sons and daughters and dear friends," he continued, "we are doing everything in our power. In particular we unceasingly urge the pursuit of honest and sincere negotiations. This seems to us not only the surest road to a just and lasting peace, but the only way worthy of love." The pontiff had been invited to stop briefly in Saigon during his current 25,000-mile swing through Asia and the Pacific. But Vatican sources said he turned the invitation down because he had not been able to go to Hanoi also. The pontiff did not mention the invitation in his address today. While he was en route to Manila Friday from his stop in cyclone -stricken East Pakistan, his chartered jetliner flew him directly over Cambodia and South Vietnam, sites of the conflict he has so often deplored in his seven-year pontificate. Before he made his address, the Pope rode in motorcades through the streets of Manila, addressed cheering students at a university, and heard Roman Catholic bishops from 15 nations commend him for the calm way he reacted to a knifer's attempt on his life. With loud applause, the 209 delegates to the first pan-Asian bishops' meeting passed a resolution condemning the attack on the Pope at the Manila airport Friday and expressing admiration for the "courage and serenity which characterized His Holiness in a difficult ... situation." The resolution was proposed by Valerian Cardinal Gracias of India and was passed by acclamation. The bishops' meeting was the highlight of Pope Paul's visit to the Philippines, the third stop of his ten-day, eight-nation tour of Asia and the Pacific. Stephen Cardinal Kim of South Korea set the tone of the meeting by welcoming the Pope "as Jesus of Nazareth came to us, not as a stranger or guest, but as a man among men, a working man among the common folk." Cardinal Kim was at the Pope's side during the assassination attempt, and his sleeve was spattered with blood when police subdued the attacker. Neither the cardinal nor the Pope was hurt. After Cardinal Kim spoke, the bishops debated resolutions on the role and responsibilities of the Catholic Church in Asia. One resolution said the church should "be more truly the church of the poor," and another urged church leaders to avoid entanglements "with the rich and powerful." The bishops voted on the resolutions by secret ballot. Results will be announced Sunday. Pope Paul Listened to the de­ bate, then mingled with the bishops during a long coffee break and gave each a silver or white gold crucifix. After the break, he addressed the bishops. "Here we are together at last," he said. "This meeting makes us very happy." He uged the bishops to offer the Catholic faith to all, "without distinction of condition, without any privileged link with one race, continent or civilization." This seemed to be an indirect criticism of the church's past policy of linking missionary efforts in Asia and elsewhere with attempts to imbue the natives with Western ways. The Pope also reiterated his belief in collegiality, which means giving bishops a role in papal decision-making. But he cautioned against interpretations that "confuse the doctrine and weaken it." Some progressive churchmen say the Pope should be required to consult with his bishops before making major decisions. Pope Paul believes a pontiff should consult with his bishops whenever he wishes, but is not bound to do so. Before going to the bishops' meeting, the Pope rode in motorcades past hundreds of thousands of cheering, waving Filipinos and told students to strike a balance between "criticism" and "generous self-giving." Smiling and waving, the 73- year-old pontiff seemed bouyed by the throngs that lined Manila's streets. At the Dominican-run University of Santo Tomas, he told a vast crowd of students: "Today is your honor. You are the advancing vanguard of your country." i "The youth of the Philippines, like that of all Asia, is on the march," he said. "Allow us in this regard to ask you some Pope ....

First and Largest Health Care Lag Hit by Official of AMA BOSTON (AP) - An official of the American Medical Association today criticized organized medicine, the fedral government and local communities for what he termed failure to team up toward solving national problems of health care. Dr. L. J. Snyder of Fresno, Calif., chairman of the AMA's Council on Rural Health, did so in declaring that the health services problems of rural America — with its estimated 55 million inhabitants — are among the most acute for the nation, especially the problems of the rural poor. In a speech prepared for a special AMA-sponsored conference on "New Aproaches to Health Care Delivery," held on the eve of the organization's 24th clinical convention, Dr. Snyder said: "Health service provision for all Americans has become a topic for acrimonious debate across this land. Piecemeal legislation has been written and funded at the federal level. "Multiple experiments in health-service provision are being tested by governmental agencies, medical schools and organized medicine." But, he added: "At no time have I seen legitimate evidence of a real commitment to planning for solutions to the dilemma of distribution, delivery and Health ...

Three persons were missing, said an Alaska Air Command spokesman who gave the death total. The spokesman said 168 persons, more than 100 of them injured, were counted at a hospital on nearby Elmendorf Air Force Base. He said 11 others were in Anchorage hospitals. The spokesman said the plane carried 219 passengers and 11 crewmen, one more crewman than given in earlier reports. A witness said the plane, owned by Capitol International Airways, was moving "too fast to land and too slow to take off" when it crashed at Anchorage International Airport after refueling and changing crewmen. A survivor said the plane "only climbed for a few minutes, then it sort of glided down." John Pederson, an airport mechanic, said the plane's nose dropped, then ran off the runway. It caught fire, he said, and then exploded twice about three or four minutes later. Master Sgt. Robert L. Kellar of New York City, a 16-year Army veteran who said he survived two previous crashes, told of "panic at first, three or four seconds at most." The father of six said other GIs quelled the panic "instantly, and this was one of the things that pulled us out." Another survivor, Spec. 4 Wil­ liam Goez of Tacoma, Wash., said the plane approached the end of the runway. "I thought, 'We're not going to make it'," he said, "the plane was coming apart." Goez and Kellar, both of whom suffered minor injuries, were interviewed in a hospital after treatment. The flight originated at McChord Air Force Base, Tacoma, Wash. It was to have stopped at Yakota, Japan, as well as at Anchorage, en route to Cam Rahn Bay, South Vietnam. A McChord spokesman said the passengers were believed to be Army and Air Force personnel. A Pentagon spokesman said they included replacements for assignment to units in South Vietnam. Goez said the plane also carried military dependents, including at least one child. They apparently were bound for Japan. M.H. Rowe, executive vice president of Capitol, said in Nashville, Tenn., he was told most of the crew survived. Pfc. Philip Zimmerman of Jersey City, N.J., another of the survivors, said the plane broke 3 Iowans in POW Raid; 1 Shot in Thigh By The Associated Press The parents of an Iowa serviceman, the only one wounded in last week's unsuccessful effort to free Americans from a North Vietnamse POW camp, said Friday their son is in good shape except for a wound about the size of a pencil. Army Sgt. l.C. Joseph M. Murray, 26, of Sioux City, was hit in the thigh by rifle fire from • Chinese made AK47. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond D. Murray, talked to him Thursday and said their son reported that the bullet left a crease on his thigh about the size of a pencil. He told his family that the wound makes it a little difficult for him to sit in chairs and he walks with a limp, but other than that he's in good shape. The Pentagon Friday identified Murray as the only man wounded, and it also released the names of 39 Army and Air Force men who were on the ground at Soy Tay during the POW rescue attempt. Included in the list were two other Iowans — Sgt. Marshall A. Thomas, 22, of Ames and M. Sgt. Galen C. Kittle- lowans . . .

Halted Bombings A A A J* <k <fc 4 Hot off the Wire Holiday Toll Rises; 9 in 1 Crash By The Associated Press The Thanksgiving weekend traffic death toll across the nation climbed to 302 today. Rain or snow wet highways in much of California, snow fell from Montana to Minnesota and rain or drizzle dampened a large part of the Midwest. The count of deaths began at 6 p.m., local time, Wednesday and will end at midnight Sunday. Nine Thanksgiving weekend travelers-six of them children- died in a collision on the Pennsylvania Turnpike as the four- day holiday period passed the halfway point. The three-vehicle pileup near Downingtown, Pa., late Friday was by far the worst so far in the weekend and pushed the nation's holiday traffic toll toward 300.

Command said today there have ben more than 14,000 incidents and sightings indicating enemy activity in Vietnam's Demiltar- zed Zone since the United States stopped bombing North Vietnam on Nov. 1, 1968. During the same period, a spokesman said, there have been more than 7,000 "engagements" in which American planes, a r ti 11 e r y or ground forces attacked North Vietnamese positons inside the 6-mile-wide zone. The spokesman said U.S. and South Vietnamese patrols operate in the southern half of the DMZ "from time to time, when ever there are indications of enemy activity in the southern half which may constitute a threat to allied "forces located in he Republic of Vietnam south of the DMZ." The U.S. Command said military security "precludes providing frequency of these patrols or public announcement of these patrols. If patrols make significant contact they are announced just as is any significant contact." The Command said there are no U.S. ground combat troops operating in North Vietnam, but when asked if the term "ground combat troops" includes reconnaissance patrols and sabotage teams, a spokesman said: "I'm not going to go beyond my statement." It is known that small recon- SHOPPING DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS naissance patrols made up of civilian irregulars and led by American special forces troops operate in Laos. There have been unconfirmed reports of similar patrols operating on North Vietnam's border with Laos to check out the movement of enemy supplies and troops. Under questioning, the Command acknowledged that many of the incidents inside the DMZ are not reported on a daily basis. But the spokesman said there have been no enemy mortar or rocket attacks across the DMZ since March. The last time an American reconnaissance plane was fired on was two months ago, he said. This had not been reported previously. U.S. officials maintain that under an understanding that went along with the bombing halt, Hanoi agreed to keep the DMZ free of military activity. Hanoi has denied that there is any such understanding. Sources in Saigon said many of the incidents and sightings reported by the U.S. Command are minor, including such things as the sighting of freshly built bunkers and truck lights that might indicate movements of supplies. Informants said the number of reported sightings goes up sometimes and down at other Indochina . . .See Page 2 up as it crashed. "Gas (fuel) was sprayed all over everyone," he said. Joe Heywood of Anchorage, who saw the accident from his car near the runway, said the fuselage "split in the middle and a big ball of flame went up maybe 120-150 feet high." Some of the survivors said they saw fire in an engine before the crash. Some also told of hearing a series of loud reports just before the plane nosed back to earth. Heywood said there were "three or four blue - colored flames that sounded like sharp cracks or explosions ... like a big rumbling hiss." The Anchorage (airport was closed by the accident, delaying one Western Airlines flight from Seattle and causing an earlier Western flight to return to Seattle. Debris from two of the DC8's four motors and its wings was scattered widely by the crash and explosions. A 500-yard trail of fuel stretched behind the wreckage. The crash came after dark in cold, drizzling weather. Rush- hour traffic clogged airport roads, and officials said emergency vehicles were delayed momentarily. A temporary morgue was set up at Kulis Air Force base, a small Air National Guard facility near the main airport. The National Transportation Safety Board dispatched a 10- man team to investigate. Ineffective Drug List Released WASHINGTON (AP) - The government has released what it says is the most complete list of ineffective drug products ever compiled. The Food and Drug Administration said Friday some of the 359 prescription and non-prescription products were earlier declared to have little or no value in improving health. Others are already off the market. But the agency said it decided government purchasing agencies needed a more up-to-date guide. Among the prescription items on the list are Aureomycin lozenges, Neo-Cortef nasal sprays, various tablets containing Rauwolfia, an anti-high blood pressure compound, and Terramyoin in some forms. Non-prescription products include Colgate dental cream with Gardol, Pepsodent antiseptic mouthwash, C u r a d Medicated bandages and Amm-I-Dent toothpaste and tooth powder. The toothpastes listed did not stop tooth decay, the FDA said. The FDA said some of- the drugs are simply ineffective in what their makers say they can do. Others, the agency said, are combinations of drugs which are no more effctive than their component ingredients are when used separately. The list is a product of a study done by a National Academy of Sciences board and FDA doctors who studied 3,000 different preparations approved for sale before 1962 when manufacturers were required to begin proving their products were effective as well as safe. 'International' to Continue CHICAGO (AP) - The president of the International Live Stock Exposition says the show will be held again next year and in the Interational Amphitheatre. The announcement Friday by William P. Adams II appeared to quiet widespread speculation that this year's International, the 71st, might be the last, at least in Chicago. Rumors that the historic show might fold or move out of Chicago began and grew several weeks ago after the Union Stock Yards & Transit Co., announced it would close the yards Feb. 1. The company operates the exposition as a ^-for-profit event to help improve the quality of livestock. "There is definitely going to be an International again next year, and it will be held right where it has always been since it opened in 1900," Adams said. "We're very much encouraged over the support we are getting this year from the public and from livestock exhibitors," he added, "and if we continue to get that kind of support, the future of the exposition is assured." Charles S. Potter, president of the company, said before this year's show opened that he is "very optimistic about its future." Closing of the yards was fore­ shadowed earlier this year when the company anounced that declining shipments into Chicago would force it to end its hog market operation. This was followed in late summer by word that cattle deliveries would end Feb. 1. At the exposition Friday, a crossbred C h a r o I a i s- Hereford senior calf shown by Kendall Taylor, 17, of Dysart, Iowa, was named grand champion steer of the junior show. Young Taylor's l,13kpound steer, named Pumpkin, will compete in the open classes Monday, and from this judging will emerge the grand champion Show . ... See Page 9
