M Red sant By WILLIAM L. RYAN ' AP Special VI The Vietnamese Communists are "ready to talk peace" in South Viet Nam — but on their terms. That, in the tone run, would promise eventual communization of the South and annulment of years of costly U S effort. ' ' Obviously jubilant over recurring-political crisis in Saigon successful bold attacks and terrorism, the Red regime ia North Viet Nam gives the impression u its propaganda that ft see* events rushing toward a climax. The Communists speak as if victory already were witiu» their grasp — just a matter of time. If rtwy la* peace, HM Com. munists now indicate, it will not »e under the auspices of any iroad international convocation. Hie slogan is: "The people of Viet Nam Stores are crowded by Exchanges' Impulse buying boosts business By SAM DAWSON AP Business N«ws Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Many stores will be as crowded today as last week. Many will keep their extra clerks over for a few more days to handle the throngs bent on exchanging or returning Christmas presents. Merchants also are preparing for upcoming clearance sales with more items added to the list, while others will have bigger price discounts this time than last. Some stores have tighter rules than formerly about exchanging those gifts that aren't quite right. They're making sure the goods were really bo'ugh'jt where the exchange is sought. : Most take the rush in stride. They put up with the unprofitable business of exchanges, hoping that many of those coming in to get a more wearable necktie will be leaving with some extra merchandise. That's known as impulse buying generated by traffic through store aisles. The big volume of December sales probably has left less distressed merchandise on hand than usual. But a number of merchants already have laid plans for bigger than normal clearance sales. Some items will be marked down more than last year. Often the weather calls the tune. Where there was a surprisingly balmy autumn, merchants may have' unsold overcoats. Toys moved very well this December. But January markdowns will be common. Merchants also *r» **g«r to take advantage of their customers currently free-spending mood as long as it's running strong. High-priced luxury items moved particularly weU this December. In January the merchants will be aiming at the bargain hunters. And a few will admit privately that some of the goods to be put on sale at hopeful • attractive prices in the days and weeks ahead were bought for that purpose and weren't part of the stock displayed on the counters in December. Retailers also are counting on sales in the first few months of 1965 topping this year's figures by about 5 per cent. With overhead fairly steady, that could bring them a 10 per cent increase in profits. But today the major business is exchanges. The usual run of customers crowding the stores will be those who got gift garments of the wrong size or in colors they loathe or objects they couldn't possibly use. Some will be returning gifts and asking for credit against future purchases. Others will be turning gift certificates into goods — in some stores they'll get what's left over in cash, in others they'll be given credit. Radio system used to study sleeping bear NEW YORK ttf—A huge grizzly bear will be broadcasting from Yellowstone National Park this winter. "We don't anticipate any problem with the Federal Communications Commission," says Oscar Brockmeyer .of Butova Watch Company's Systems and Instruments Division, "although the bear will be humming on the air 24 hours a day all winter long." Brockmeyer explained that the bear is being equipped with an electronic timepiece and a tiny transmitter, to permit scientists to determine whether hibernating bears really sleep straight through the winter. The transmitter will broadcast the summing sound of the timepiece's tiny tuning fork that oscillates 360 times a second, he said. If the bear wakes up after starting his hibernation and wanders around before settling down again, he added, scientists will be able to follow his movements electronically. POLIO FUND GOODELI^Mrs. Russell Ver Heist will be chairman of the 1965 polio fund drive in Goodell. Viet N*n will settle their own •flairs between themselves." Nhan Dan, official North Viet- •amese Communist newspaper said recently: "When the aggressor (the United States) gives up hi* aggressive schemes and respects our independence and sovereignty, we are ready to talk peace with him." But they dp not indicate they are really willing to talk peace with.the United States beyond inviting the United States to get out of South Viet Nam aitd let the Communists negotiate with Saigoo, They even imply that the Soviet Union, too, would remain mostly out of such talks. Only Chinese participation seems to be acceptable to the Communists. Peking, indeed, acts as spokesmen for the Vietnamese Communists. A few days ago, Red Chinese Foreign Minister Chen Yi said; "The South Viet Nam question can be settled only through negotiations without outside interference and in accordance with the progranvof the National Liberation Front and the desire of the South Viet Nam people. There is no other way out." The suggestion really is for talks between the Saigon government — whatever it might be at any given moment — and the so-called National Liberation Front of South Viet Nam, the Viet Cong Communist cover organization. The front has its real headquarters in China under a man named Nguyen Minn Phuong. It was set up exactly four years ago with Chinese help, when it was decided the time was ripe for a drive to envelop all Indochina. From then on, things popped in the South, which had been relatively quiet since Viet Nam was partitioned following the French debacle at Dien Bien Phu in 1954. After this decision, things got so rough that the United States began its mammoth military assistance effort. The North Viet Nam Communists — and the Chinese — happily predict now that soon new Dien Bien Phu" will take place — the end of (he road for the Americans as it had been for the French.
