KL ./L'lL' t * r .«.*-_-. Nix6if sNisit to Mexico has portents of a sounding board News comment By HAROLD K. MILKS Republic Latta Affairs Editor President Nixon and Mexico's President Gustavo "Mat Ordaz are unlikely to settle many major policies during the Nixons' 24-hour visit 1 to the west coast resort of Puerto Vallarta starting T h u r s day. Nixon, in, taking his wife on a belated wed- wedding anniversary trip to Mexico, may be looking for a sounding board on problems with Latin America. President Diaz Ordaz, after nearly six years as Mexico's chief of state, makes a good one. But any decisions involving U.S.-Mexican problems must wait until Nixon meets the Mexican president-elect, Luis Echeverria, who is scheduled to make a private Visit t6 Washington in mfd-November b e f& r e taking over power from Diaz Ordaz Dec. 1. Unlike the U.S.-, where re- lirihg presidents usuaMy etid their terms in a flurry of policy activity,, in Mexico the retiring chief of state normally coasts through the final months' in office in order not to tie the hands of his successor (of course, in Mexico the question of •' succession' by an' opposition party has never developed). Behind ttie facade of festivity filling the 24-hour program for the Nixdns in Puerto Vallarta, where the movie "Night of the Iguana" was filmed, the two presidents / I •«•<•» r ( ' . : • Marine gets 5*year sentence in killing of 15 Vietnamese Associated Press DA NANG - Pfc. Samuel G. Green Jr., an 18 - year old Marine, was sentenced to five years in prison yesterday on a charge of killing 15 South Vietnamese \vomen and children Feb. 19. "I think they'll get me off." said the young Marine from Cleveland, Ohio, referring to the automatic appeal from the court - martial verdict. 4> f don't know." Green is the third Marine tried so far jn the slayings at a village southwest of .Da Nang, and the second convicted. A fourth Marine is awaiting trial. .A jury of three officers and two senior enlisted men convicted Green of unpremedital-, ed murder, for which the maximum penalty is life in prison. He was convicted on 15 counts involving the slayings of four-women" and 11 children. The jury was (jut mosi of the day, and Green greeted the verdict with the .same calm he had shown during his one-day trial Friday. Pfc. Michael S. Krichten, 19, Hanover, Pa., the key government witness, testified he did not see Green kill anyone during the patrolthat day in Vietcong - infested Son Thang village. TheKjfr o.s e c u t i o n said Green's rounds, fired along with those of other Marines, killed the Vietnamese, and he should be convicted even though liis bullets did not cause every death. The de. fense argued there was no evidence Green killed anyone. Krichten said all the slayings were committed by Pvt. Michael A. Sch'warz, 21, of WeirLon, W> Va,>x and.-Pvt. .Kandell E.

Mexico is concerned over possible changes in U.S. laws covering jobs on th'is side of the border for "blue card" holders, Mexicans who live south of the border but cross over to work here. Mexico is equally concerned that organized labor here may force changes in the favorable tariff regulations by which the "twin-plant" concept has flourished along the Mexican border. The U.S. Tariff Commission is now winding up public hearings before making recommendations to the President on this subject. Diaz Ordaz also may be interested in telling Nixon Mexico's side of claims to more water from the Colorado River, as well as its displeasure that Florida vegetable growers have been able to push through embargoes on U.S. imports of Mexican tomatoes the past two years.

Windsor Misses' Dresses, 49 The U.S. remains worried about the confirmed flow of narcotics into this country from Mexico. A presidential meeting would be a good time to discuss how well "Operation Cooperation" to curb this trade is now working and to smooth Diaz Ordaz feathers, which are badly ruffled by the inept application of the earlier "Operation Intercept" by U.S. border officials. Communications may be a major problem for the two presidential parties and the dozens of newsmen accompanying them. Puerto Vallarta two years ago was a one telephone town, but since then more phones have been installed and during the past month technicians have provided special facilities for the presidential visits. Arizona visitors t6'Puerto Vallarta today would scarcely recognize the place. Dozens of workmen have been busy sprucing up the town, painting just about ev- erything pamtable, cutting back jungle growth near the airport and.along the roads both for beauty and security, and repairing the old cobblestone streets. Nixon and his party will stay at the new Camino Real, a curving, 10-story, 280-room hotel set into a cove between jungle - covered mountains and the beach on the south of Puerto Vallarta. The Mexican presidential party will use the older but equally expensive Posada Vallarta, north of the town near the airport. The possibility of hostile demonstrations following the Ntxons into Mexico are remote. "We have no such problems in Jalisco state," said federal administrator Hector Palencia Alonso. "The people here love Nixon as they love Diaz Ordaz." Should Nixon find time heavy on his hands — unlike- ly in view of the busy schedule already laid down for the 24-hour visit — he might go campaigning and tiedown a few Republican votes for the Novembef elections back home. There are nearly a thousand Americans now resident in the town of less than 25,000 people — it was a sleepy coastal village until "Night of the Iguana" was filmed in 1964. At least 20 Phoenix families own resort homes or apartments there.
