Skylab flight today to decide whether and how to get their own space program off the ground. the meeting of ministers from 11 nations was expected to be the last before Aug* 15—the U. S>imposed deadline (or European acceptance of an American invitation to join the post-Apollo spaeelab program. BUT WEST GERMAN Technology Misinster Horst Ehmke predicted no agreement would be reached on sharing the costs and responsibilities among the 11 nations. Ehmke Said failure to agree would be "a step backward for European unity.' 9 So far, Europe's space program amounts to six unsuccessful attempts to launch a rocket and a handful of scientific satellites 'launched by American rockets. The Europeans conceded defeat last December and agreed tentatively to organize a new space agency and to accept an American invitation to make a new start as a partner in the IL S. post-Apollo program. THE MINISTERS met again July 12 to give final agreement to this program. But Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands said they were not ready and approval was postponed until today's session. The ministers also were asked to give formal approval to a French project for building a new rocket—the L3S. This rocket would replace the Europa rocket, which never went into orbit. France said earlier it would provide 60 per cent of the financing for the L3S, which diplomats said Paris sees as insurance against any future U. S. refusal to provide rockets for European satellites. Other European nations said the L3S is not necessary, but that they will put up the rest of the money if France agrees to join the post-Apollo program.

What tm been ordained now clearly lies more in the hands of Hanoi and Peking man in Washington.

SiiSanouk says he will refuse to see Kissinger after earlier rebuffs at Kissinger's hands and suggests that Chinese Premier Chou Ert-lai can act as an mtiHrtnedtery.
