Some officials nave encouraged speculation that it was a signal'to HsJWI, ; v J. ;i , . ••::"-. .;:: < Others say the ortback was v only a budget measure that was mistakenly announced at art awkward moment. . Yetj despite the" iecrecy -hefe surrounding aoftte of the specific diplomatic and military gestures toward the North Vietnamese, senior officials have been saying enough both in public and private to reveal their basic assumptions and objectives at this stage. They start with the assumption that Hanoi is seriously interested in a settlement that would yield it something less than a forcible takeover of South Vietnam. • In pressing the search for: such a settlement, the administration's planners also wish to prepare a fallback position, that is, a tenable alternative in case negotiation fails. :• . , Hanoi's interest- in negotiation is thought to flow from a combination of pressures: a degree'of military and economic exhaustion; fear of a loss of Soviet support because of other crises, particularly MOSCOW'S conflict with Peking; and 'realization that American forces cannot be defeated or forced to withdraw from South Vietnam if Nixon succeeds in appeasing domestic public opinion. ; Moreover, officials here still count on some marginal though secret Soviet support in arranging a settlement. . They think Moscow would favor a •compromise that vindicates neither lAmerican intervention in Vietnam nor 'the guerrilla warfare habitually endorsed by Communist China. If they can get substantial negotiations, Administration officials would Want to arrange for a schedule of mutual troop withdrawals by North Vietnam and the United States, while the political future of South Vietnam is left to the talks between the Saigon government and the National Liberation Front. Indirect diplomatic exchanges appear to have left officials here with the '' impression the NLF is prepared to deal with the Saigon government, at least long enough to work out some new political processes. The attitude of the Saigon government is said to have changed remarkably in recent weeks as the Nixon administration privately made plain its determination to move toward disengagement. American officials do not now expect the Saigon regime to obstruct agreements for the withdrawal of outside forces. The Saigon leaders also are said now to understand the need to strengthen their political and military position against the day when they must cope alone with their rivals. Public pressure on Saigon is thought here to be self-defeating, because it helps Hanoi's campaign to undermine the existing South Vietnamese government. The private prodding has continued and, as Nixon is said to have remarked, it may be difficult to make peace with Saigon but it will be impossible to make peace without Saigon. Behind that moment, and behind the entire Nixon approach to the war as described here, lies the administration's judgment that the United States cannot simply withdraw and let Saigon fall to armed insurgence or invaders. The administration is not unalterably committed to the existing Saigon government, but it has concluded the investment of more than 500,000 American troops and of solemn American commitments must be redeemed in some minimal way. It is not known whether the President has tried to define his minimum terms. Some of his senior officials say they have concluded there must be some genuine "self-determination" in South Vietnam and not merely some arrangement that camouflages a Vietcong victory by force of arms. Therefore, the administration appears to be seeking a phased withdrawal of American and North Vietnamese troops over a period of time long enough to let new political processes Develop in South Vietnam. Simultaneously it is contemplating the possible need for an even slower pace of American withdrawal if negotiations are unproductive. Officials refused to discuss the numbers of troops they might recall even if negotiations fail. Some estimates have ranged from 50,000 to 100,000 over the next 18 months. Some estimates have been even greater. Officials say they will not talk about these numbers because they do not wish to undermine the talks with Hanoi about mutual withdrawal. It is clear the administration is definitely thinking of unilateral withdrawals of some magnitude as an alternative to a negotiated settlement. More about Nixon starts U.S. reform ROY L.

Paget, partner in the J!tew York management consultant firm pf Cresap, McCormick and Paget. According to the White House announcement, he is also a director of Prudential Insurance Co. of Great Britain and of Atlas Chemical Industries. White House sources have predicted some major governmental reorganizations will be undertaken by the Nixon administration, which is committed to streamlining and improving the means of delivery of federal programs and services. In other action, the President named C. Burke Elbrick, who has been serving as ambassador to Yugoslavia, to be U.S. ambassador to Brazil. The White House also announced that John H. Irwin IV, who is the President's personal representative in the negotiations with Peru over the seizure of the International Petroleum Co., will meet Nixon this afternoon at the presidential villa at Key Biscayne. In another development, it was announced the President has reappointed L. J. Andolsek, Democratic member of the U.S. Civil Service Commission, to another six-year term. Andolsek, 58, is former administrative assistant to Rep. John Blatnik of Minnesota and former chief clerk of the House Committee on Public Works.

One of the New York marchers' favorite shouts was "Tricky Dicky, hey, hey,, how many GIs died today?"—a variation of the "Hey, hey LBJ" chant familiar during the stormy protests "of the Lyndon Johnson era. -^ > The Chicago marchers were escorted by 800 policemen picked in tests last week for their "friendliness and cooperativeness." There were 7,000 National Guardsmen on duty in the city, called up Thursday to put down violence which ' broke out on the anniversary eve of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But the soldiers stayed in the background. As the Chicago marchers walked 12 abreast down the middle of State Street, a half-dozen youths calling themselves "the Young Americans" spilled onto the street and began swinging their fists. Marchers swung back with their signs before police broke up the melee. Along the route, counterdemonstrators waved American flags and shouted, "Commies, scum, hippies, skunks ... we love cops." Twenty marchers became isolated in a parking lot at the parade's end and got into a scuffle with 25 hecklers before police moved in and made arrests. One of the organizers of the coast- to-coast protest, Dr. Erich Fromm, author-psychiatrist, said, "We have waited r long enough and if we wait any- longer lethargy will set in." Another key sponsor, Sttwaft Meacham, said the purpose., of the marches was to revive the fervor of the antiwar movement. He said -H has become "increasingly clear that President Nixon may represent a change in style' but no change in direction." in the progress of the war talks. ; Although the war was the prime target of the marchers, demonstrators in each city proclaimed causes of their own, The Chicago parsers, parade against war State Street with a police permit they were denied during the Democratic National Convention, said they were protesting the indictment of eight protest leaders for their activities during con- yentionweek. The New York marchers carried banners reading, "Free the GI political prisoners. Free the Panther 21." These weft references to 27 soldiers charged with mutiny at the Presidio Army base in San Francisco and 21 alleged members of the Black Panther Party who were arrested in New York this week on charges that they plotted to blow up midtown department stores. In San Francisco, the specific target of the protest was likewise the Presidio soldiers. A spokesman for the marchers charged that the Army has issued extra duty assignments and canceled leaves so that soldiers could not join the protest. The New York march, a 35-block marathon, began with a chant of "Peace now!" In Chicago, the parade had a festive air. Demonstrators showed up with painted faces and bright costumes and there were floats along the route — "our own ABM machine," a march leader said, and "a people eating machine." Democratic Party task forces to listen to Voices of discontent' Associated Press In a drive to overhaul the divided Democratic Party, five task forces will start listening to the voices of discontent at a series of regional hearings beginning this month. Sen. George S. McGovern yesterday announced the party hearings will be held from April 25 to June 14. The South Dakota senator said in a statement that the Commission on Party Structure he heads wants to listen to every point of view in an effort towards "democratic" , presidential nominating conventions. • "We want to hear from the party re- gulaj and the disaffected, the academician and the blue collar worker, the young and the old and the various minorities," McGovern said. "We want to know what the people think we should do to encourage more political participation and to open the political process," he said. .

Sen. Harold Hughes of Iowa, who brought in a report to the convention criticizing its delegates selection procedures, is scheduled to preside at a five state meeting in Minneapolis May S. Hughes, vice chairman of the commission's executive committee, will be given other assignments later. The commission, still looking for $200,000 in private financing, is operating temporarily on funds supplied by the debt-ridden Democratic National Committee. Emphasizing the recent assertion of Hubert H. Humphrey, the 1968 presides tial nominee, that the party must be rebuilt in the South on a racially integrated basis, the Atlanta hearing will be conducted by a task force headed by Dr. Aaron Henry, Negro chairman of the Mississippi delegation seated at the Ch> cago convention. open mon., thurs., fri. 10 to 9 ... tues., wed., sat. 10 to 6 AFTER EASTER SALE DISCOVER MANY MORE UNLISTED ITEMS IN OUR STOREWIDE CLEARANCE • maleolm's dresses WOMENBVFASJSIONS DftESSES \& 19.95 DRESSES to 29.95 ^:14»00 DRESSES to : 45.0b ;/ An exciting selection from our regular stock of spring linen types* voiles, bondeds and easy-care miracle*. • ; ' LADIES' BETTER DRESSES DRASTICALLY REDUCED! .
