f h6 ArtzVna Republic ®O Wed., Nov. 5, 1969 ** Red China U.N, seat still cold Washington Post Service * UNITED NATIONS - The United States again opposed the seating of Communist China in the United Nations yesterday while reiterating an offer to talk when Peking abandons its "isolation." Rep. J. Irving Whalley, R-Pa., making the U.S. presentation to the General Assembly, did not depart notably from previous American policy statements despite the Nixon administration's efforts, so far unsuccessful, to resume discussion with Peking's representatives in Warsaw. Meanwhile, Albania reiterated its traditional demand for the seating of the Communist government and expulsion of the Nationalist government based on Taiwan. It blamed the United States for a series of "aggressions" around China which it claimed had now been joined by the Soviet "revisionist" clique. Whalley asserted that the Peking regime has spurned disarmament discussions and opposed a peaceful settlement in Vietnam while insisting on a condition for admission to the U.N. which the assembly "in good conscience" cannot accept — the expulsion of Nationalist China. He cited liberalized American regulations on travel and trade'with Communist China and asserted that the United States had been prepared to offer ; "specific suggestions on an agreement' for more normal relations" at the planned Warsaw meeting last February which Peking abruptly ~. canceled. I Despite discouragement "from Peking, Whalley said, o the United States "intends to persevere." He reiterated ,. President Nixon's assertion , made here in September th^t ; "we are ready to talk with * the leaders of Communist .• China in a frank and serious * spirit whenever they choose - to abandon their self-imposed • isolation." ~ Whalley's speech reflected U.S. confidence that after the debate ends next Monday the •assembly will again defeat a • Cambodian-Albanian move to seat Peking and expel Taiwan and also will reaffirm a " decisjpn, that,, China representation is an "important question"" requiring a two-thirds , • vote to change. "Philippine Ambassador Pri- -vado C. Jimenez supported the U.S. position, contending that arguments for "universality" in the U.N., which is not mentioned in the charter, should not be allowed to over- .ride other considerations. Na- -tionalist China, he asserted, has lived up to its charter obligations. Albanian Deputy Foreign Minister Halim Budo contend• ed that from its inception Communist China has fol- • lowed a policy of friendship, good neighborliness, nonin- ^.tervention and peaceful coexistence with all states. Almost in the same breath he also noted that China has .-. supported the revolutionary ' struggle of all peoples.

In Jerusalem, Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban said Lebanon risks Israeli retaliation if it lets Arab guerrillas attack from its soil. Al Ahram, considered to reflect Egyptian government views, said Joseph Sisco, U.S. assistant secretary of state, had outlined the broad peace recommendations to Ashraf Ghorbal, Egypt's representative to Washington. The newspaper gave no details of what the .plan contained and made no editorial comment on Egypt's attitude toward it. It said the formula would be submitted for discussion when Big Four talks on the Middle East resume in New York later this month. The United States submitted two earlier plans for achieving peace between Israel and the Arab states. Egypt rejected both as "completely adopting the Israeli viewpoint." "If certain organizations regard themselves as having the right to attack Israel, Israel is entitled to take action against them in any way she deems effective," Eban said in a nationally broadcast speech. He said Lebanon is under "an obligation to respect the independence and security of Israel and prevent any attack from her territory upon Israeli citizens and territory." Commenting on proclaimed Soviet support for Arab guer-- rillas, Eban said this proves the Soviets do not want peace in the Middle East and are pursuing an "unfortunate policy which led to war in 1967 and is preventing peace in 1969." Eban, who spoke in Jerusalem, said his country will not consider itself bound by any peace formula worked out by the United States and the Soviet Union. Earlier yesterday Arab guerrillas fired rockets against an Israeli settlement near the Lebanese border. The attack came within hours after commando leaders and Lebanon announced settlement of differences over guerrilla raids against Israel, Israeli warplanes streaked across the Jordan River cease- fire line and bombed Jordanian artillery positions in retaliation against an attack earlier in the day on Israeli positions near the Damiya Bridge. By TOM LAMBERT Los Angeles Times Service WASHINGTON — Even before he took office, and apparently without informing the Johnson administration, President Nixon corresponded secretly with Ho Chi Minh to try to end the Vietnam war, the Los Angeles Times learned yesterday. This exchange pre-dated the President's July letter to Ho Chi Minh, made public by Nixon in his Monday night Vietnam speech. The prein- augural correspondence has been kept so secret that many ranking Johnson administration officials still are unaware of it. Nixon wrote the letters at his preiriaugural headquarters in New York City's Hotel Pierre and sent them secretly via a special and still unidentified courier to Ho Chi Minh. They were delivered in Paris to Mai Van Bo, the ranking North Vietnamese diplomat there, sources said. The Nixon letters, according to sourcces who have seen them, were simple in concept. They said in effect, "I am taking office filled with goodwill and want to end the war." Ho's reply to the first Nixon letter was in the same vein, the sources said. Then, they reported, Nixon wrote a second letter to the North Vietnamese President in which he emphasized some of the points outlined in his first note. It is not known if Ho Chi Minh replied to the President's second letter. '- about the Nixon-Ho letters. Further, it was learned, even before Nixon was inaugurated, his national security affairs adviser, Henry A. Kissinger, met at least twice with Russian officials in New York City to ask Soviet help in trying to end the war. The Kissinger-Soviet sessions apparently were among those referred to Monday by the President, who said that he, Kissinger, Secretary of State William P. Rogers and Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge have solicited Russian help "in getting meaningful negotiations started." The Nixon-Ho Chi Minh exchange of letters and the Kissinger-Russian meetings came during the final weeks of the Johnson administration, and as Nixon was refusing-to send an observer to the Paris peace talks. At one point, after a Dec. 5 meeting with Nixon, Ambassador W. Averell Harriman, Johnson's chief Paris negotiator, said the incoming president would send an observer to the talks in the French capital. Later the same day, a Nixon spokesman said no observer would be sent. Keep age limits, 101-y ear-old says COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) David W. Donley, who at 101 is believed to be Ohio's oldest registered voter, said yesterday 19 - year - olds should not be granted the right to vote. Donley, who has voted for the past 80 years, said he voted "no" on a proposal to lower the voting age in Ohio from 21 to 19, the chief issue on the ballot.

Use Our Lay-AWay 946-M31 False kidney disposable London Times Dispatch LEEDS, England—University scientists at Leeds claim' they have developed a simplified, fbrin of artificial kidney that can be thrown away after use. ; The njain feature is a filter unit costing little; njo^e. than the cheapest existing type.- It is so designed that skilled nurses and technicians are not needed to sterilize it. The developers say it would make it possible for many more patients to treat themselves in their homes. The Leeds equipment, proved in trials after three years' research, employs a di- alyser in which the infected blood is washed with a salt solution sealed in a plastic container which can be incinerated without anyone coming into direct contact with it. Existing artificial kidneys employ either a "wet" dialy- ser, which has to be sterilized, or a throwaway coil type of filter, which costs between $16.80 and $21.60 a treatment. Most of the 800 patients now receiving treatment twice or three times a week have to go to the hospital. Astronaut trio greeted by J apon, emperor United Press International TOKYO — Japan welcomed America's Apollo 11 astronauts yesterday with cheering crowds, medals and a special audience with the royal family. ; Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. and Michael Collins and their families flew into Tokyo from Seoul, Korea, on the last leg of their round-the-world goodwill tour. They leave today for Washington and a welcome home reception headed by President Nixon. An estimated crowd of 120,000 Japanese lined the route of the motorcade from the airport through the bustling Ginza district to cheer the astronauts. . Prime Minister Eisaku Sato, who was host later in the evening at a dinner for , the astronauts, pinned Japan's Cultural Medal on each of them. They were the first foreigners ever to be awarded the decorations. The three also were made honorary members of the Japanese Boy Scout organization at special ceremonies attended by Foreign Minister Kiichi Aichi. About 2Ms hours after their arrival,,..,the astronauts and their wives were received at the Imperial Palace in a 30-minute audience with Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako. The Japanese couple had watched the moon landing when it was televised live to Japan by transpacific communications satellite. A court attendant said Hirohito asked the astronauts a number of questions about their mission. Japan was the 24th stop on the tour which took the astronauts to every continent. Israeli court hears expert JERUSALEM (UPI) - A prominent British, psychiatrist told an Israeli court Monday Denis Michael Rohan is "sev- erly mentally ill." But he said Rohan knew what he was doing when he set fire to Al Akash Mosque last August. Rohan admitted earlier in the day d u r i'n-g cross- examination that he had carefully planned the burning and had taken elaborate precautions to avoid discovery. RUSS AUTHOR HUMBLED MOSCOW (AP) — Novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn, long under a cloud for his harsh portrayal of life in Russia, was expelled by the writers' union of his home town, usually reliable sources reported yesterday. •'New N. Viets enter Laos United Press International ; VIENTIANE, Laos - New elements of the North Vietnamese Army's 312th Division are moving into Laos, appar- 'ently as reinforcements for an offensive in the central and northeastern sections of Laos, a defense ministry spokesman said yesterday. The spokesman, Col. Thong- phanh Knocksy, said North Vietnamese troops and Communist Pathet Lao guerrillas began offensive probes in the areas about two weeks ago. Documents found on bodies of slain North Vietnamese identified them as members of the 312th Division, known previously to have been responsible for infantry training in North Vietnam, he said. Thongphanh said the division's strength in Laos has been initially estimated at 30,000, adding to the 30,000 to 40,000 troops of the North Vietnamese 316th Division already operating in the coiin- ^Miracle of the hospital' She laughs at death try 9 morgue trip United Press International LIVERPOOL, England Last Friday Mrs. Kim Nevitt lay on a mortuary slab with a death tag around her wrist. Yesterday, the 23-year-old mother of three sat up in bed, ate rice pudding and laughed at herself for trying to commit suicide. As the blond former nightclub worker came out of a deep coma, her estranged husband stood beside her. They were reunited with a kiss. "I've been such a fool," said Kim. She laughed with her husband Frank, a 26-year-old laborer; asked him to "go and buy me the prettiest nightie you can find," and then told doctors she had taken an overdose of sleeping tablets because she missed her family. Kim and her husband parted a year ago, and her three young children were put in the care of local authorities. "I wanted them back so much, but I couldn't have them because I was living in a rooming house," she said. Kim was found on a lonely beach near Liverpool Friday. A coroner, finding no pulse, pronounced her dead, and she was taken to a local mortuary. A tear saved Kims' life. A mortuary attendant noticed it rolling down her cheek, and she was sped to the hospital. "It was such a shock," said Kim. "When I first came round, I discovered an identification tag round my wrist. It just said Waterloo Mortuary on it and then my name." Said a Liverpool hospital spokesman: "She wasn't expected to pull through. She's the miracle of the hospital." Medical experts said a combination of an overdose of drugs and exposure helped to keep Kim alive as she lay on the beach. Dr. H. Alstead, deputy medical officer at Liverpool Hospital, said the overdose and exposure lowered her body temperature and blood metabolism, giving her the appearance of being dead. He said there had been no apparent brain damage or damage to other organs. Doctors said Kim made "an astonishing recovery and is progressing fine." Said Kim's husband Frank: "Now I hope everything will return to normal and we will get back together again with our children." The Arizona Republic Published every morning by Phoenix Newspapers, Inc.

But Nixon did not say he had written and sent two letters to Ho Chi Minh. Correspondence between a president-elect and tJie head, of a hostile state in wartime is believed to be rare, if not unprecedented. Nixon said he had extended to Ho "two private offers for a rapid, comprehensive settlement" of the war. And he added that "Hanoi's replies called, in effect, for our surrender before negotiations^" It is uncertain if Nixon advised . President Johnson : personally of this exchange of letters. If he did, Johnson kept the matter secret. One source said Dean Rusk, Johnson's secretary of state, did not know The Met will accept nothing less... Knabe.
