Chou called willing to renew U.S. talks WASHINGTON - Premier Chou En-Lai is reported to have told eastern European diplomats in Peking in recent weeks that Communist China looks forward to a resump* tion of contacts with the United States in Warsaw following the "temporary" interruption forced by the Cambodian crisis. Chou's reported remarks have been relayed through diplomatic channels to various eastern European capitals, which in. turn have informed some of their diplo^ mats in Washington. United States officials said yesterday the administration has not been directly apprised .Of Chou's reported comments. But they said the United States government received information through other chammels that would appear to support the accuracy of the reports. The American-Chinese meetings in Warsaw were resumed Jan. 20 after a pause of two years. A second meeting was held by American, and Chinese diplomats on Feb. 20. The third meeting had been scheduled for May 20, but on May 18 China canceled it on the ground that' the United States entry into Cambodia on April 30 made a meeting /at ..that time inappropriate, -i . American officials' noted, however, that the Chinese an- New York Times Service nouncement of the cancellation of the May 20 session included the statement that liaison officials of both sides Would remain in touch to set a new date. Until now, the officials said, no approach had been made by the Chinese in Warsaw for a new meeting. They indicated the U.S. was prepared to wait for "awhile," but then could initiate an approach itself. American specialists in Chinese affairs expressed their belief that it was "plausible" for Peking to resume contacts with-the U.S for reasons of evolving Chinese foreign policy, They cited the deepening Chinese-Soviet dispute and stressed that Peking presumably wishes to retain a certain level 6f dialogue with the U.S. rather than to force Washington and Moscow into a growing degree of cooperation which is clearly disturbing to China. This feeling, it is believed here, was behind Peking's original agreement to resume the talks last January. Eastern European diplomats reported that Chou volunteered his comments on the contacts with the U.S to several recent visitors in the context of a broader discourse on China's desire to improve relations with countries everywhere. family of 5 to a new home A mother fought her way through heavy smoke early yesterday to take her four children to safety as flames destroyed their upstairs apartment. Late yesterday afternoon the mother, Mrs. Arthur Douglas, and her youngsters were installed in a furnished apartment, with the rent paid a month in advance by the Fire- belles, an organization of firemen's wives who used donated cash, clothing and food to help fire victims. Mrs. Douglas and her four sons, Terry Lee, 4, Jeffrey Lee, 3, Steven, 2, and Charles, 11 months, had been living in a three-bedroom apartment at 1014 N. 10th St. while her husband, Sgt. Arthur Douglas, has been serving in Vietnam. On Tuesday, she said, she paddled Terry Lee and Jeffrey Lee for playing with matches. Yesterday morning she awoke with smoke choking her and her first thought, she said, was for her children. She led all four to safety, but was able to save nothing from the apartment. The loss, of the building and its contents was estimated at $9,000. Firemen said Terry Lee and Jeffrey Lee had been playing with matches again. EARTHQUAKE IN GREECE ATHENS (UPI) - The National Observatory yesterday reported an earthquake of moderate intensity 103 miles west southwest of Athens at 8:25 a.m. City Council postpones $173 million bond vote GRIN AND BEAR IT fey George Lichty The Phoenix City Council last night postponed a city election on $173 million in revenue and general obligation bonds that had been scheduled for July 21. Another election has been tentatively scheduled for the middle of August, but no specific date has been set. The council will also have to set an interest rate on the bonds for the election, which was the main reason for the postpone-• ment. The bonds were approved by voters last June, but they carried only 6 per cent interest. The bond market is running 6.9 per cent and higher. The bonds would finance parks, municipal buildings, police buildings, landfills, service centers, libraries and fire stations. In zoning action, the council approved rezoning and a spe-' cial permit for a mobile home park on 17 acres just south of Indian School on 67th Avenue. The rezoning, from Rl-6 to R-3, and permit were sought by W. N. Shawver of Glendale. There was no opposition. The council also approved rezoning for an apartment complex at 3228 W. Glendale Ave. on a 4V 4 acre parcel of land and for an industrial development on 43 acres at the northeast corner of Roeser Road and 36th Street. There was no opposition to either change. However, opposition was raised against a proposed apartment building at 5317-25 N. 12th St. A change in zoning from R-3 to R-4 had been requested by Ralph Haver, the developer. Two neighboring residents complained to the council about the additional traffic and parking problems the apartments would cause. On a motion by Councilman Ed Korrick, the council denied the change. Korrick said R-3 was sufficient for the project. The council split, 3-3, on rezoning the northwest corner of 43rd Avenue and McDowell from Rl-6 to C-2 for the construction of a service station. The council then voted to take the matter under advisement.
