(Studio) Senator doves reject Republican call for moratorium on Vietnam criticism.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) [Sen, Eugene McCARTHY - says words and actions of President Nixon similar to LBJ's.] [Senator Mike MANSFIELD - proposes mutual cease-fire that could lead to negotiated peace. And if fired on, weld fire back. Hopes South Vietnam pop. could get together in election and decide on government President Nixon trying to get out of Vietnam. Not a partisan issue. Thinks he had plan put into operation, but hasn't reached objective. Call for moratorium counterproductive and could bring more criticism.]
