Step-up Paris Negotiations ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., DEC. 13, 1972 Page 3 Speculate Kissinger Making Peace Progress WASHINGTON (AP) Steppe d-up negotiations in Paris and speechmaking in Saigon have produced speculation but little solid information here about prospects for the proposed accord to end the Vietnam war. A widespread assumption among Washington officials is that presidential adviser Henry A. Kissinger is making progress in his secret sessions with Hanoi's Le Due Tho and that he will return to the White House shortly. But the North Vietnamese were reported as very tough in the Paris negotiating, and hopes for a fast wrapup of peace details admittedly have dimmed. Just before Kissinger headed for Paris Nov. 19, authoritative U.S. sources anticipated that a cease-fire pact would be nailed down around mid-December. Truman Remains Serious In Second Week of Illness KANSAS CITY (AP) - Harry S.

Truman's vital signs of blood pressure, pulse and temperature continued to fluctuate and were elevated overnight, a spokesman for Research Hospital and Medical Center said. But his pulse was 88, blood pressure 114-56 and temperature 101—all within normal limits—at 10 a.m. EST. Truman was taken to the hospital Dec. 5 by ambulance when an ailment which had lingered for two weeks was described as lung congestion. The following day he was placed on the critical list, where he remained until Sunday when his condition was upgraded to serious. Doctors said Tuesday the former chief executive's condition would fluctuate within the serious classification for some time. The hospital spokesman said Truman's heart condition re- m a i n e d unchanged from Tuesday when it was noted as stronger than earlier in the week. His kidney function was described as adequate. The spokesman said Truman responds to verbal stimuli but that he did not talk during the night. The spokesman said this meant Truman was aware he is being spoken to but did not nec- \—Quotations STOCK MARKET SI REPRESENTATIVE STOCKS AT&T 51'/2 American Motors 8% Chrysler 40Vs Firestone 25% Ford 77W Gamble Skog 34 3 /g General Motors 81% Goodyear 32 Int.

John Dreves, director of public relations of the hospital, said neither Bess Truman nor their daughter, Margaret Truman Daniel, visited the hospital Tuesday for the first time since Truman was admitted. Icy streets made travel hazardous. Dreves said he didn't know their plans for today. Truman is receiving oxygen continuously through a face mask and he is being fed through a nasal-gastric tube. In response to a newsman's question, Dreves said that Truman is not and never has been on life-supporting machinery such an artificial respirator. Land Use DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Iowa Legislative council Tuesday approved a recommendation from a legislative study committee that the General Assembly pass a bill creating a nine-member commission to draft specific land use policies. The policies would be considered by the General Assembly, but probably not before 1975. Belmont Park is the nation's only l'/ 2 mile racetrack.

Another official said he does not expect any signing before Christmas. These officials are among many here whose duties relate to Vietnam, but who say they are clued in not at all or only in part to the reporting from the U.S. negotiators in Paris. Kissinger's messages to President Nixon rank among Washington's tightest secrets. The White House and the State Department stayed mum on Vietnam diplomatic developments Tuesday except for an announcement by presidential Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler that Kissinger would attend a further session in Paris today. With his jet plane standing by, the presidential envoy could be back in vVashington within hours. There also has been word, however, that he may make a final journey to Saigon to try to persuade a reluctant President Nguyen Van Thieu to go along with the proposed peace package. Neither the White House nor the State Department commented on Thieu's heralded speech Tuesday to the South Vietnamese National Assembly. Privately, U.S. officials suggested it would not alter the course of the Paris talks. Thieu proposed a truce starting before Christmas to last sometime into the new year, a pre-Christmas exchange of prisoners of war, and negotiations among the Vietnamese for a political settlement. It was noted here that Thieu must have known his proposition would be rejected by the Communists, as the Viet Cong delegation speedily did in Paris. Presumably Thieu hoped to status and build public support agreement neared, a U.S. offi- demonstrate his independent for his position as a peace cial said. w HIGHLANDER SUPPER CLUB ESTHERVILLE, IOWA STEAKS - - SEAFOOD Featuring: The Bob McDonald Show AND SATURDAY Rock - Country - Modern , WEDNESDAY - CHICKEN $1.75 FRIDAY - FISH $1.50 DONE TO PERFECTION FOR DINNER | RESERVATIONS CALL 362-5757 r.
