(Studio) Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to go to Mideast Wednesday
REPORTER: Tom Snyder
(Vail, Colorado) President Ford and Kissinger meet. [KISSINGER - says some issues remain, but differences are surmountable. Americans who go to Mideast (as electronic observers) to only go if Congress approves. To have no military purpose and must volunteer; to give warning information to both sides and UN.] US to give Israel partial compensation for them giving up important oil fields. Israel shows flexibility by accepting less.
REPORTER: John Cochran
(Studio) Israel cabinet approves steps so far.
REPORTER: Tom Snyder
(Tel Aviv, Israel) 2 sides closer to agreement. Israel gives up Baluza stronghold. Map shows where Egypt and Israel will move. 4 electronic warning systems to be in area of Gidi and Mitla passes; probably Americans to man them. On eastern coast of Suez Canal, Abu Rudeis oil field goes to Egypt. Armies to be further apart and buffer zone to be larger. Unresolved points cited. Many Israelis feel American pressure has squeezed out too many concessions. Kissinger's welcome to be cooler.
