(Studio) President Nixon to meet with top advisors. Shift in American war policy indicated.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Plan is not to start action except in response to enemy's movements and to only engage in "protective reaction." South Vietnam probably won't agree. Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler denies relations split between President Nixon and Thieu. DC may be more pleased if South Vietnam do more offensives on their own. General Creighton Abrams unhappy about protective reaction and more troop cutbacks. Feel it will leave United States vulnerable.
