REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(DC) [President NIXON - says 60,000 Americans to be in pullout and 50,000 not drafted. Infiltration is 2/3 less than last year American casualties down 1/3, US made comprehensive peace offer. Time for Hanoi to make move. Right of South Vietnam to choose own leaders not negotiable. Senator Goodell's plan' is defeatist attitude. Not in interests of US. Enemy incentive to talk destroyed when he knows all he must do is wait for United States pullout. No Am, combat forces in Laos. I'll sign House bill involving oil depletion allowance if it doesn't require revenue shortfall that's more than nation can stand.]
