Gen. Robert F. Kennedy conferred with Philippines President Diosdado Macapagal today in the second stage of his efforts to aid in a peaceful settlement of the Malaysia dispute. Kennedy, President special emissary, met President Sukarno of Indonesia in Tokyo last week and will fly to Malaysia Tuesday to see Prime Minister Tengku Abdul Rahman. prospects of an early meeting among the three countries are Philippines Foreign Secretary Salvador P.

Lopez said after two and one-half hour talks with Macapagal today. The U.S. embassy announced that Kennedy would leave for Malaysia at 1 a.m. Tuesday (12 noon Monday EST), five und a half hours earlier than originally scheduled. His schedule for Tuesday left the afternoon open for possible meeting in Kuala Lumpur with Prince Norodom Sihanouk, who also is acting as a peacemaker in the dispute.

Kennedy plans to meet again with Sukarno later in the week. Indonesia has opposed Malaysia, the new British commonwealth nation on its borders, on the ground that it represents another form of Western colo- fused to extend recognition because of territorial claims it has on Borneo, the island Malaysia and Indonesia share. Tension arising out of Indonesian guerrilla raids on Malaysia threatens the peace in Southeast Asia and Kennedy was believed pressing for an immediate summit meeting among the powers concerned. Lopez said Macapagal told the attorney general today that the Philippines has "endeavored from the beginning to bring about a among the three countries. "He assured Mr.

Kennedy he supports his efforts in this direction and pledged full cooperation to this Lopez added. SPRINGFIELD Illinois lawmakers today had 10 more days of "breathing in which they could hammer out a passable program to implement an at-large election of 177 state representatives. The Illinois Senate met Sunday night in a Sunday meeting to pass a measure that set back by 10 days the opening of filing of petitions by candidates for the House in the April primary. Immediately after the Senate passed the bi-partisan measure, by a 51-0 vote, it was signed into law by Gov. Otto Kerner.

It was the first election bill to become law in the two-week-old special session. Filing had been scheduled to start this morning, and the extraordinary Sunday meeting of the Senate was called to pass the filing-date bill before midnight. Filing for other offices was not affected by the new law. leaders of both parties favor elimination of a primary for House candidates in the at- large election. They would substitute party conventions to nominate House candidates However, there has been no agreement on any of a number of proposals to set up the nominating conventions.

If such a convention bill does become law, the measure passed Sunday night to set back the filing dates until Jan. 30- Feb. 7 would be automatically nullified. As the lawmakers returned to Springfield for the start of the third week of the special session, a feeling prevailed that some sort of agreement on a legislative program would be reached before Friday. Last Thursday, the state Supreme Court refused to reverse an earlier decision outlawing the election of House members in November from districts established in 1955.
