"Eu- r .'it tary Rogers, declaring that indivisible J J'H rope's security is from our own," proposed a live- point plan for peace today at the European security conference. The proposals which Rogers placed before the meeting of 35 foreign ministers ranged from an exchange of military Information between East and West to lowered barriers to trade, and, "of paramount importance," a freer flow of both peo- and information the two Rogers stressed the need to outlaw "the use or threat of force" between nations. He called this "the keystone in the arch of a durable peace." "The United States has learned from our experience- is our own," Rogers told the conference. "Our goal should be a continent in which no nation feels threatened, a continent open to that indivisible Europe's security from y '.i|l (i1 j J it i mr p .

European Fears Rogers, alluding to European ars that Russia and America may make deals behind Europe's back, assured the ministers that "the United States and the Soviet Union have a major contribution to make to a secure and cooperative Europe. The recent improvement in our relations is helping to bring Europe together again." The five points of Rogers' plan are as follows: — The "elaboration with precision* 1 of principles on relations between nations. These principles—including the banning of force and the noninterference in other nations' affairs—are agreed by all 35 nations here, but East and West have disputed their exact meaning. —Agreement on exchanging of "certain military information" and exchanging observers at military maneuvers. —Development of ways to solve disputes between nations "which might have the potential for confrontation." •Reduction of barriers to trade and in \ cooperation science and technology. —"Specific and meaningful ways to facilitate human contacts, the freer dissemination of information and the broadening of cultural and educational cooperation." Concrete Ideas Rogers said the United States will have specific proposals later. But he cited a few concrete ideas today—more freedom for newsmen to work abroad, easier travel, and more contact between East and West by members of divided families and young people. The U.S. secretary of state said nations should have the right to change their borders peacefully—a right resisted here by the Communist nations. Another Western minister challenged Russia to "move from words to deeds" in guaranteeing the security of Europe. Britain's foreign secretary, Sir Alec Douglas-Home, told the European security conference that the Soviet proposals presented Wednesday, which set out general principles for a "code of conduct for Europe," are "impeccable." But he said, "We cannot sentiments hanging Ve must come down earth. The people of our thank countries will not tnanic or congratulate us for adding more solemn declarations. It is time I deeds. * +1 from nham Douglas-Home gave few specifics himself. But he suggested that newspapers of ail countries have unhampered circul at i on and proposed international, "linked television discussion programs on subjects of current interest of foreign affairs." He also urged improved facilities for businessmen working abroad and said any troop- cut talks must not disturb "the collective security system." Without citing examples, Douglas - Home said peace in Europe had been disturbed since World War II and that each nation must earn "trustworthiness." He appeared to be referring to such affairs as the 1968 Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia. A Soviet spokesman said Wednesday in Helsinki that none of the Soviet proposals for a "code of conduct" would prevent such an invasion from happening again.

A bank statement issued in Buenos Aires said the money, escorted by three bank officials, was being sent to the town of Jujuy 1,000 miles north of Buenos Aires for loans on the forthcoming sugar crop in that region. The plane, which had 80 passengers and crew aboard at the time, was seized by six or more terrorists on the flight to Jujuy. The hijackers, believed to be members of a guerrilla group blamed for numerous acts of violence in Argentina, took over the short ranee Boeing 737 return the money to Argentina if it were still aboard. A Foreign Ministry spokesman in Havana told UPI headquarters in New York by telephone that the Boeing 737 landed at Jose Marti Airport in the Cuban capital Shortly before 7:30 a.m. EDT.

Dent today placed controls on 41 commodities including other livestock protein feeds, animal fats and edible oils. No Corn Controls No controls were placed on corn, the basic livestock feed grain which remains freely available for export despite speculation it may be subject to control later if demand continues to increase. But corn gluten feed, a high-protein byproduct, was added to the control list. Dent said the action to expand controls was needed because foreign buyers, finding U.S. soybean shipments sudden­ ly limited until fall, were increasing Orders for other high-protein feed supplements like peanuts, sunflower, linseed and safflower meals, alfalfa and meat meals, and prepared livestock feeds. . Protect Supplies The new controls, like those imposed earlier on soybeans and cottonseed, are designed to protect U.S. supplies until farmers harvest what officials hope will be record 1973 corn and sojfcean crops.

The hijackers were armed with a sawed-off shotgun and hand grenades. Airport officials in Panama City said the guerrillas demanded a life boat, 35 life jackets and fuel. The airport said it did not have the boat or life jackets. Earlier, President Hector J. Campora of Argentina ordered the nation's airline to refuse to hand over the ransom money the hijacker demanded. The money would go, the hijacker said, to hospitals. The plane was seized during a domestic flight from Buenos; Aires to Jujuy, a city about 1,000 miles north. At stops in Santiago, Chile, and Lima, Peru, the hijacker allowed more than half of the passengers, many of them •women and children, to leave the jet. Passengers freed in Santiago said a lone hijacker pulled ^ sawed off shotgun from beneath his jacket and seized the plane over Argentina.

Dent said that under an export licensing system for the 41 commodity categories covered by today's action, the government will permit shipment of all orders accepted on or before June 13 for export before Oct. 1, However, Dent said orders accepted after June 13, for shipment between now and Oct. be issued until a new system of shipping allocations —which presumably could allow ej of a portion of the orders —is announced "subsequently." Officials said a determination in rts on licensing of any ex, earmarked for shipment after Oct. 1 will be made later.

(UPI) — President Nixon is dispatching Henry A. Kissinger next month to Peking apparently En-lai's again to enlist Premier Chou negotiated Cambodian conflict. support in a settlement of the White House with Huang Chen, China's chief diploma t in Washington. Huang, who last met with Nixon on May 30, a day after he arrived in the United States, was being flown coincided with Nixon's race against an Aug. 15 deadline imposed by Congress, to halt the bombing of Cambodia. Although he rejected such Diplomatic observers speculated that Kissinger also may urge Chou to pick up Nixon's invitation to visit Washington, perhaps this autumn during the United Nations' General Assembly meeting. Although the date is not yet set, Kissinger's sixth trip to the China mainland was being j arranged as Nixon prepared to confer Friday at ihe California, opportunities in the past, here today in a presidential jet. (Kissinger was expected to confer with Prince Sihanouk, the exiled Cambodian leader Will Review Results The session with Huang was expected to cover the gamut of Sino-American relations, with the President and Kissinger reviewing the results of the recent summit meeting with Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezh­ nev to keep Washington diplomacy with the Communist superpowers in balance. The timing of Kissinger's iourney to the Chinese capital who may be able to rally opposition forces to begin peace negotiations with the Lon Nol government. Kissinger has stressed the "complexity" of a negotiated settlement in Cambodia on grounds the leadership of the warring factions is fragmented. Dealing with Sihanouk w r ould signal a change in the U.S. 'position on the approach to a cease-fire. N i x o n's discussions with Huang also were expected to center on the Chou government's views on a Cambodian peace settlement. There is Speculation There was speculation that Kissinger's return to China was being put off until after Nixon meets July 31-Aug. 1 with Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka. The Japanese also seek reassurance after the "Nixon shocks" in July, 1971 when the President announced t his di ploma t ic bre ak through with China. Chou has a ^ standing iqivita- i tion to visit the United States. He has said he will not travel to Washington while the U.S. has formal ties with the Nationalist government on Tai- jwan. But that could change. A Chou address to the U.N. and a trip to Washington for informal consultations while he is attending the General Assembly mee ting was considered a j distinct possibility.
