United Press International "WASHINGTON - Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge is dismayed . with the lack of progress at the Paris peace talks on Vietnam and would like to be relieved toward the end of this year, informed sources reported yesterday. The sources said that President Nixon and Secretary of State William P. Rogers were aware of Lodge's sense of frustration, but they were unsure whether Lodge had submitted a formal request to be replaced. The sources said that Lodge had told friends about his frustration over the talks which since May 1968. when they began, have succeeded in reaching agreement only on the shape of the negotiating table. ''Reports of Lodge's discouragement began circulating after President Nixon's Viet- riam speech Monday night in which he virtually wrote off the Paris talks as a way of .'achieving'peace. I' On Oct. 23, Lodge refused £to deliver his prepared speech jto the regular session of the ipeace talks because he said {the other side was engaging dn invective which made seri- jous discussions impossible. •; Speculation in Washington ;that Nixon might not replace •Lodge if he should be relieved Jof his duties was discounted fry officials here.

The tanker broke up yesterday morning 120 miles southeast of Nantucket Island off Massachusetts. There was no word of the 36-man crew, reported on the stern section when she began breaking up. up. Three Coast Guard cutters and a Navy destroyer were heading to the scene and one British ship, the Border Laird, was already where the bow was found. At dusk, hopes for the crew dwindled, but officials said the search for survivors would continue. She carried a full load of fuel oil — about 210,000 gallons — and the Coast Guard said it posed a serious pollution threat. In the same storm - tossed area, seven yachters clung to their 41 - foot sloop Whisper awaiting rescue. The Coast Guard said the stricken yacht had been located by air, but the tanker Thomas IVL, steaming to the scene, would be a number of hours arriving. Meantime, the Coast Guard said, aircraft circled over the distressed sloop which had been en route to Bermuda from Marion, Mass. .The Coast Guard identified six of the persons aboard as James Ferris, 40; Donald Steele, 43; Phil Sears, 26; all of Dover, Mass.; Dennis McDonald, 27, Newton, Mass.; Peter Mesmer, 42, Sharon, Mass., and Peter Hayes, 40, of Bermuda. Aircraft, -including helicopters, hurried to the aid of both vessels. A fleet of nearby merchant ships, Navy destroyers and Coast Guard cutters followed. The U.S. merchant craft Chicago, which had said it was in the vicinity of the Whisper,, guided a C130 search plane to the area. Two •other ClSOs, flying only a few hundred feet above the ocean, sought out the tanker, named the Keo. Associated Press SAIGON — Three American war prisoners freed by the Vietcong walked into a South Vietnamese militia outpost yesterday. All three are in "good condition" at the big U.S. Army hospital at Long Binh outside Saigon, the U.S. Command said They will probably be heading back to the United States "in a couple of days," the command added. The three walked to a post four miles west of Tam Ky in the northern First. Corps area. The Vietcong radio had announced Oct. 29 that the captives were freed. It sometimes takes days or weeks for released prisoners to make their way to allied posts. And it's got a million of 'em! Pronounced "Old-ee." It's also called America's Number One Bourbon Buy.

Tinsley, in Cleveland, Tenn., reported receiving word froni the U.S. government that he had been freed and was in a hospital in South Vietnam. They said he was reported in good condition, "except for some trouble with his feet." "I just think it's the most wonderful thing I .ever heard," said Watkins' mother, Mrs. Inez Watkins of Sumter. She said the Army wired that her son's condition is fair and that he is receiving medical care. "I don't know when he will be coming home, but they tell me they will let me know soon." Mrs. Watkins said. Relatives of. Tinsley and Strickland said the Army told them their sons might telephone them from a hospital in South Vietnam soon. Strickland and Watkins had been missing since January 1968. Tinsley was captured last March. Strickland's father, John Henry Strickland of Rt. 4, Dunn, N.C.j said he was told his son was suffering from foot ulcers and malnutrition, but he believed the soldier 'was in generally good health. rt t r u s i...
