Sullivan and aides arrive at a villa in Gif Sur Yvette, France to start a new round of talks with North Vietnamese violations of the cease-fire agreement. UNIFAX on PARIS (UP1) - U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State William H. Sullivan said today North Vietnam must decide soon either to adhere to the cease-fire agreement or go back to war. "Hanoi knows what we expect from them," he said.

He did not elaborate on the possibility of new military action. Sullivan made his statement to newsmen before departing for Washington to report on the three days of talks he had with Nguyen Co Thach, North Vietnamese Vice Minister Foreign Affairs.

The talks were broken off by Washington in protest against North Viet* namese cease-fire violations. The fact Chau was flying home suggested there would be no early renewal of the economic talks. Sullivan told newsmen later, "We are not at all satisfied with the performance of the implementation of the Paris agreement and the way they have been handling the forces under their control. "We have circulated a note to this respect which spelled out the violations of the agreement made by the North Vietnams and at the same time have taken a certain number of actions ourselves such as breaking off the economic talks here. "We seriously wish," Sullivan said, "that the other Side WilF carry out faithfully all the provisions of the Paris treaty. Wc talked about these things quite frankly and without emotion over the past few "Hanoi knows what expect from them," Sullivan said, adding Hanoi must choose between respecting the ^agreement or risk possible new military involvement.

Real Estate By DICK ROIYNBK, GRI Realtor Takeover Not Automatic When buying an existing home, taking over a mortgage that was financed at a considerably lower interest rate can be practical and profitable. But be cautious. Never take for granted that handing over the loan obligation to another is automatic. If you are the seller, you can't hand over your mortgage to anyone you choose. The lender has a stake in who's going to repay him, so notify him of your intent to transfer the loan and get a copy of the original mortgage document. Lenders often have the power t ouse "acceleration clauses" to block assumptions they regard as risky by demanding repayment in full. Some lenders may vie wa transfer as an opportunity to raise the interest rate. To avoid pitfalls in this area, you'd be well advised to get the competent assistance of a Realtor and lawyer before making such a commitment.
