(Jalesburg Register-Mail GAUBSBUIWJ, ILL., MOW., JUNE 11, 1972 PAG& 17 North Vietnamese Wait for Kissinger PARIS (UPI) - U.S. nnd North Vietnamese diplomatic technicians conferred at a lower level today while awaiting the return of Henry A. Kissinger and resumption by (him of negotiations on ways to make the Vietnam cease-fire work. Kissinger was expected to come (back Tuesday after seeing President Nixon on two matters—the latest series of discussions with his Hanoi counterpart, Le Due Tho, and the forthcoming visit to Washington by Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev. Kissinger and Tho apparently (failed to reach agreement because of the wording of a new document on violations of the Vietnam cease-fire signed in Paris on Jan. 27. "American officials have sometimes been mistaken in their estimates of the length of time required to bring Vietnamese parties to a common realization of the significance of certain words," Kissinger said before leaving Saturday for Washington. He refused to elaborate on ABOVE ALL MAKE IT WHITE'S ROOFING 342-0185 what words were In dispute or what other problems might remain ias obstacles to an accord. , Kissinger also said he could not discuss details of his meetings with Tho because the negotiations are still in progress. When he arrived in Paris to resume the talks with Tho, Kissinger expressed guarded optimism. So did: Tho. Behind him when he left, Kissinger left matters in the hands of William H. Sullivan, the deputy under secretary of stale. Sullivan and Tho's chief aide, Nguyen Co Thach, agreed to meet today for lower level talks. The snag in the negotiations between Kissinger and Tho came as a surprise because U.S. officials said last Friday they expected the talks to wind up at the weekend. The Americans said they expected the Saturday meeting between Kissinger arid Tho to last only about one hour. Instead it lasted 4% hours. The two men did not say what happened to their plans. But in Saigon, there were 'reports the problem was dissatisfaction by South Vietnam with the formula reached by Kissinger and Tho. BOSTON (UPI) - A security guard who once complained his family was "a noose around my neck" killed his wife and five of his six children before taking his own life with an overdose of drugs. Police said Sunday that George O'Leary shot his wife, Thelma, arid five children; George Jr., 13; Colleen, 11; Kathleen, 10, and Michael and Melinda, 8-year-old twins, some time Friday or Saturday. Their bodies were discovered by the eldest daughter, Theresa, 14, Sunday when she returned from a week-long stay at Boston City Hospital. Neighbors described O'Leary as a difficult man to get along with. He and his family lived in a two-story, one-family house in a quiet residential neighborhood of Boston's Dorchester section. The neighbors said O'Leary kept as many as eight dogs on the property, all of them trained as "vicious watchdogs." Occasionally, they said, he would brandish the pistol he owned as part of his job on a security detail. One woman said O'Leary once told her, "my family is a noose around my neck and someday I'm gonna kill then! all." David Hosmer, owner of thi house O'Leary rented, said M and O'Leary were to paint the house Sunday afternoon. Hos* mer said he found a note, taped to tho inside of a kitchen window, written in a childish scrawl and poorly spelled. It read, "DaVid~-I had to gd to work—I'm sorry. Do not disturb Thelma, she and kids got virus and I had doctor-appreciate if you could do it tomorrow. I am bad at spelling —They are sleeping, please.., George."

Brezhnev's meeting next week with President Nixon has come under attack by a senator citing Watergate and by some Jewish organizations citing the Soviet Union's emigration policies. Other Jewish groups, citing the President's desire to give Brezhnev as polite a welcome as Nixon got in Russia last year, were cautioning against a series of demonstrations planned for the period of Brezhnev's trip. Meeting Postponed Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., urged in a copyrighted interview with U.S. News and World Report, published Sunday, that the Nixon-Brezhnev summit meeting be postponed because of Watergate. "I believe that it's a very, very poor time for the President to be meeting with Mr. Brezhnev," Sen. Jackson said. "I think the meeting should be postponed—not canceled, but postponed. "This is a risky time for him to be bargaining with the head of an extremely powerful country....Mr. Brezhnev will be coming here right in ibhe fury of the Watergate hearings on Capitol Hill. Surely Mr. Brez­ hnev is not so high-principled that he's going to forego the temptation to take advantage of that situation." Demonstrations Planned Demonstrations were being planned in Washington, New York and near Nixon's 'home in San Clemente, Calif., to protest the refusal of the Soviet Union to let all Russian Jews emigrate freely to Israel.
