Agnew Seeks X A t/Oo s . JL d*V/C/ W00M4WN, Md. (UFl) Vice PreiMltfit Spiro T. Agnew, once the White House's leading news , media critic, called Wednesday for an end to the "unfortunate hostility" between the press and the government, a good deal of which he said is the fault of the administration. Agnew, Whose role in developing administration policy W63 expanded this week by President Nixon, freely admitted his part in causing the hostility but did not apologize for his criticism. "It could have been stated less abrasively," he said. But in speeches this year, he said, he had "intentionally adopted a different tone and one that has been much better received by those who do not agree with my conclusions." Agnew called on the government and the media "to' put aside their visceral reactions and engage in a productive, intelligent discussion of their differences." He said the Nixon administration was ready to participate in such a discussion. "It is of immense importance to the American public that information flow creditably and freely to them," he said. "In candor, t cannot gfoss over the unfortunate hostility that has existed for too long between the media and the Nixon administration. To say that there is fault on the part of the administration would probably be described by many in this room as the understatement of the week," he told the Maryland Press Club here, where he was honored as "Man of the Year." "When 1 say unfortunate hostility f mean deep feelings that run beyond the traditional adversary relationship between government officeholders and members of the press," he said. "But there is also some blame properly assessable to some individuals in the media," he said, singling out CBS newsman Walter Cronkite for an article he has written for an upcoming issue of Playboy Magazine. Agnew said Cronkite had written that the White House was conducting an active conspiracy against the press.

Agnew was speaking at the Maryland Press Club well in his switch from the Democratic Party to the Republi- in Baltimore, and was honored as the club's man of the can camp. Connally had been a life-long Democrat and said year. UNIFAX he felt that "the Democratic Party had moved too far to Communists Fire On Reconnaissance Plane A rgentine President-Elect Argentine President-elect Hector Campora returned from Madrid Wednesday guarded by tough security measures under a regime of martial law imposed in response to terrorist Violence. Campora said that his "urgent" meeting with the ruling military junta "doesn't depend on me," and left for-his.department in Buenos Aires to rest until the formal arrangements are made. UNIFAX SAIGON (UPI) - The Viet Cong said Wednesday night that Communist forces fired on an American reconnaissance plane because it flew over territory the Viet Cong controls near the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). A Viet Cong statement broadcast by Hanoi's Vietnam News Agency did not say if the gunfire hit the plane, only that Communist forces opened fire and "punished the marauding plane." Saigon command spokesman Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien reported 116 more Communist cease-fire violations in the 24 hours ending at noon today, among them blowing up of a railroad culvert 32 miles east of Saigon Wednesday. Hien said three civilians were wounded in the blast, which halted . rail service to the provincial capital of Xuan Loc. The broadcast heard in Saigon said the reconnaissance plane was flying at about 3,000 feet from Quang Tri City along Highway 1 to Gio Linh, along the DMZ. "Worth noting," the statement said, "is the fact that the spotter plane was flying along the very air corridor reserved for International Commission of Control and Supervision planes by the Provisional Revolutionary Government." Quoting a Hanoi-based Viet Cong spokesman, the statement added: "The above mentioned U.S. move constitutes an encroachment upon the air space of the areas controlled by the PRG." It demanded a halt to such flights. Earlier Wednesday, two ICCS helicopters were fired on after leaving Quang Tri City on a flight to Gio Linh. The crews turned back although neither craft was hit. The two choppers were en route to Gio Linh to pick up four ICCS investigators, four mechanics and four survivors of an April 7 incident near Khe Sanh in which one ICCS helicopter crashed, killing nine persons, and a second was damaged by ground fire. In war action, Hien said Communist troops attacked government positions along Highway 1 near the Binh Dinh border along the central coast. In a four-hour battle there, he said, the Communists were driven off, leaving behind 20 dead. Two government soldiers died and five were wounded. He also said cease-fire violations in the 24 hours ending at 6 a.m. today went up to 122, the highest total since April 15. In political developments, a Saigon spokesman said a May Day peace proposal by Gen. Duong Van "Big" Minh was neither new, concrete nor reasonable. Government spokesman Bui Bao True said Minh's proposal "was not reasonable since it did not touch on the withdrawal of non-South Vientamese—that is, North Vietnamese—troops from South Vietnam." Cool House The best way to cool a house for comfort is not only to lower the temperature, but to reduce the amount of water vapor in the air. The less humidity, the easier for perspiration to evapo- jrate — and evaporation is a cooling process. Corn is America's most valuable crop. The soybean has now become the second most valuable crop. WASHINGTON (UPI) Phase II of the meat boycott—a national day of protest against food prices—is due Saturday. But so far it does not appear to have the widespread public support won by last month's meatless week. The protest is being backed by the National Consumers Congress, a loose coalition of local groups and individuals active in the meat boycott. The group was formed with the help of several congressmen, notably Rep. Benjamin S. Rosenthal, D-N.Y., who at the time were pushing legislation to force a rollback of all prices and interest rates. That legislation was soundly defeated in the House. Since then there has been little congressional interest in—or rallying point for—the May 5 protest planned by the boycot ters. The coalition left it up to its local members to decide what form the protest should take. Some said they planned picketing; others, a grocery boy' cott. The decentralized nature of the new organization and the lack of continuing national publicity has left the impact of the protest doubtful. At least two consumer groups —the New York Consumer Assembly and the Citizens Action Program of Chicago- 4 said they detected a move away from the protest approach, toward a more long- range attempt to question and monitor the government on the food price issue. The Consumers Congress itself has already moved in that direction. It asked the Cost of Living Council and Cabinet members for a meeting to discuss the food price situation. The council said it was coordinating such a session, but no date was set. A group calling itself Women United For Action said it would [picket the New York headquarters of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. (A&P), the country's largest supermarket (chain, on Saturday. It also said some of its members in Brooklyn would form "community inspection teams" [which will enter stores to determine how clean they are. Air Traffic In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration is chraged with controlling air traffic to keep order and prevent accidents, just as local governments control automobile traffic on the ground.

Minister of State Nguyen Van Hieu also said he knew nothing of a possible mid-May meeting between presidential adviser Henry A. Kissinger and Le Due ABOVE ALL MAKE IT WHITE'S ROOFING 342-0185 Tho of Hanoi to discuss cease­ fire violations. "We have no information about any such meeting," Hieu said. Hieu made, his statements before the ninth meeting between Saigon and Viet Cong delegates aimed at charting South Vietnam's political future. The Saigon government had proposed a ten-point agreement last week calling for elections Aug. 26 and complete withdrawal of North Vietnamese troops. In return, Saigon offered to demobilize an equal number of troops. "We believe that the South Vietnamese proposal runs counter to basic requirements laid jdown in the Paris treaty," Hieu told newsmen as he entered a chateau at suburban La-Celle- Sainf Cloud, where the talks are taking place. "Today we will give the other side an answer to this effect," he said. Hieu said the main reason the Saigon plan was unacceptable was that "it does not give priority to the question of first re-establishing democratic freedoms. "It also goes against the basic role of the National COSTA CATHOLIC SCHOOL CAR WASH 9TH GRADE BENEFIT TRIP TO CHICAGO THIS SATURDAY — MAY 5, 1973 70 A.M. to 6 P.M. - $1.00 Per Car — Inside & Out At Former Station — Corner N.

Editors Hear Three Views On Watergate WASHINGTON (UPI) President Nixon's counselor, Anne Armstrong, said ''we were wrong" on Watergate. Sen. George McGovern found "no satisfaction" in it. Cabinet member Caspar Weinberger called it "messy" and "tawdry." These were three views of the Watergate affair told to 500 editors and their wives attending the annual meeting of the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) Wednesday. "Yes, we were wrong on Watergate," said Mrs. Armstrong, reportedly one of the first White House insiders to urge the President to act on Watergate. "To you in the press I add my apologies to those of Ron Ziegler." Ziegler, the President's press secretary, apologized to the Washington Post Tuesday for having denounced its Watergate reporting at a time when the administration was denying all charges. Sen. McGovern, D-S.D., the defeated presidential candidate of 1972, said of Watergate, "I take no satisfaction from this sad affair. Indeed, since the election last November, I have repeatedly refused to respond to press inquiries about Watergate. And I take no joy today from the President's difficulties. With him, I hope they will be resolved soon so that he andj we can fight out the future onj other better issues." 1 This Paint Lives Up To Its Nome! Mini-Work - Midi-Cost Maxi-Beauty!
