Kissinger arrives today for new cease-fire talks with Hanoi, bargaining in an atmosphere clouded by warnings by North Vietnam and growing antiwar sentiment in the U.S. Congress. Kissinger was due to arrive al Orly Airport from Washington sometime between 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., U.S. embassy officials said. The presidential adviser is scheduled to open the talks with Le Due Tho, his Hanoi counterpart, on Thursday in a Paris suburb. The talks were expected to last three or four days.

The United States requested the talks in hopes an agreement can be reached for strict compliance of the cease-fire accord. They follow high-level meetings in Paris last month to review the agreements and the charges of violations. Tho arrived Monday and promptly delivered a warning to Washington, saying that the talks would not begin or continue, if started, if the United States carried out more of what he called U.S. bombing attacks on Communist-controlled areas of South Vietnam near the border with Cambodia. The United States denied the bombing charges.

Republican leaders were attempting to delay final votes on the issues until Kissinger concludes his talks. In Washington, administration officials said Kissinger hoped to persuade Hanoi that it was in North Vietnam's economic and . military interest to refrain from violation of the agreement. The officials said Kissinger would probably tell Tho that Congress cannot be expected to vote reconstruction aid while the violations continue. Similarly, they said, Kissinger is expected to contend that the United States does not feel obligated to clear mines from North Vietnamese waters while the violations continue. playtex' .AllvMRIM swimsuits helps you look pounds younger ranks of the over 9,200 strong all male military organization.

Lt. Gen. Vernon Walters, CIA deputy director, also told the Senate Armed Servicee Committee that a third White House official asked the CIA to pay the bail or salaries of the accused Watergate conspirators. Walters said the attempts to use the CIA to halt the FBI probe into financing of the Watergate bugging by funds sent through Mexico were made by Nixon's former chief aides H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman. Walters said he was asked by Nixon's ex-counsel, John Dean III, if CIA funds could be used to help the Watergate conspirators, and he refused. A summary of Walters' testimony was made public Tuesday by Sen- Stuart Symington, D-Mo., acting committee chairman, who said, "I don't think there is any question in the world that Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Dean were trying to obstruct justice.

Following the ceremony held at the Bluff Road Armory in Columbia, General McCrady said the event marked a milestone for over the whole situation and eventually take over responsibility for the Watergate itself," Symington told a news conference. White House attempts to involve the CIA in the Watergate affair were made in a series of meetings beginning six days after the June 17, 1972, break-in at Democratic national headquarters, according to the summary of testimony, which Walters gave to the committee Monday. Haldeman and Ehrlichman, according to Symington, met in the White House last June 23 with Walters and then CIA Director Richard Helms. They asked Walters to tell then Acting FBI Director Patrick Gray that if he pursued his probe into the channeling of campaign funds through Mexican banks, it would "compromise certain CIA activities and resources in Mexico." An immediate appointment was made for him with Gray and he went there an hour later, Walters said. Re(k 111 JJ " ; - wa Your Happy Shopping Store tS The Mall Gaffney . A A A.
