The announcement was made by White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, who aid Kissinger and those accompanying him will "make concrete arrangements" for the Nixon journey planned for sometime before next May. Kissinger said he and the Chinese would be discussing possible dates for the Nixon visit and said, "I think we should have' an announcement within a reasonable period thereafter." Kissinger,' Nixon's principal national security policy adviser, m a-d e a secret trip to Peking in July that foreshadowed Nixon's dramatic announcement of his own travel plans. Kissinger said he will be meeting now with Premier Chou En-lai. f The two had also met during Kissinger's July trip. Asked what he could say about recent and rather mysterious happenings in Communist China and their possible impact on Nixon's plans , Kissinger said: "We have not raised the issue . . they have not volunteered any information." However, he said the White House has been in direct contact with Peking and that the Chinese have pushed ahead with advance planning for the Nixon visit in a "meticulous and careful" way. Kissinger said he believed the Communist Chinese, have made a "serious decision" to seek improved relations with the United States and added that he did not believe this decision would be easily reversed. . The makeup of Kissingers traveling party, which will fly to China via Hawaii aboard a presidential jet, would suggest that a Nixon journey could come relatively soon. Traveling with Kissinger -will- be "advance men" from Nix•on's staff, from the White House press office, from the S e c r e t Service and from, the . White House communications • agency. Advance men do careful planning prior to all presidential trips outside Washington. In addition,' Kissinger will be accompanied by Alfred Jenkins, director of the Asian Communist' Affairs group at the State Department and Winston "Lord and John Holdridge of the National Security Council staff. Holdridge, an expert in Bast Asian affairs and Lord accompanied Kissinger on his mystery trip to Peking in July. At about the'time Washington was making the announcement, , Radio Peking said Communist China and the . United States agreed on the trip by Kissinger in the last 10 days-of October. It added that the purpose is to arrange for .Nixon's visit to Peking. The member of Nixon's personal staff who will make the trip will be deputy assistant Dwight Chapin. Kissinger said he would be in Peking a maximum of four days and expected to spend all of his time in the Chinese- capital. He said he did not want to preclude the possibility that members-of the advance party might go to other points in China that.could be considered, for presidential stops.

Names Inquiry Board; Report by Wednesday WASHINGTON (AP) — Using emergency'powers 1 of the Taft-Hartiey Law for the first time since taking office, President Nixon has moved toward halting strikes that have shut down most of'the nation's deep-water ports.
