REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Speed of modern events tends to chew up reputations at dizzying rate; Kissinger feels this most acutely now. Brought to head by surrounding circumstances of Vietnam collapse; details given. Root of disenchantment began with Kissinger's wheeling and dealing among pressure groups. It wouldn't serve country if Kissinger resigned now; details given. Kissinger's reputation and United States respect in eyes of other nations would be helped if Kissinger resigned as head of National Security Council, if President listened to others on foreign policy besides Kissinger.
