Averell Hardman publicly warned Hanoi today that mtiisitreiateent of U.S. captives "will change the whole feeing of the war" which, he said, up to now -has not been aimed against the people of North Viet Nam. In the strongest words yet issued by a Washington official concerning Red 'threats, to try American pnisoniems as war criminals, Hamrimiain said: "North Vieit Nam still indicates that ftey believe that the United States wil give up, just .as France did some years ago, if they hold out.

"So far 'there has been no bitterness on the part of the American government or the American people against the pople of North Viet Nam. But this barbaric act would heighten the temporal fading and can only react against the interests of the North Vietnamese."

"We all gotta die some time. we'll fight," said another. The trouble began Tuesday night when police turned off a fire hydrant spraying kids with ncmiic development after peace comes to Vieit Nam and promised the United States would contribute $1 billion or more. But mistreatment of U.S. prisoners, he said, "would have a great effect against any future relations between our two countries on the kind of live-and-let- Kve basis we hope would come about."

Mayor Daley said that he blames the outbreak "in large measure" on aides of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., chairman of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. King and his staff have been con- ductiing a civil rights drive in Chicago. Said Daley: "Surely some of the people that came in here have been talking for the tat year of violence, and showing pictures and instructing people in how to conduct violence. They're on his (King's) staff." .Salid King: "It is unfortunate that one in such a high position of authority as the mayor of Chicago Should perpetrate such a fafcehood." King said he believes the National Guard caffiup was necessary.
