that the Saigon government
was illegal.
In a rebuttal at the next
meeting Harriman replied
that, on the contrary, the
Saigon govermment was
legal. It had a popularly
elected Chief of State and
l egislature, he said, an ef
fective armed force and a
civi'rn administration which
"represents a majority of the
S.uth Vietnamese."
Harriman added that the
U.S. was determined to

Thuy contended that the
Americans were guilty of
"aggression" and that Ameri
can forces were "terrorizing
the South Vietnamese."
Harriman countered by
saying, "I must state that we
reject your interpretation of
history. North Vietnamese
Military and subversive for
ces have no right to be in
South Vietnam."
The DRV head delegate
replied that Hanoi had no
knowledge that soldiers from
the North Vietnamese
Regular Army were in South
Vietnam. He dared the
United States to recognize
the "right to self-determination"
to all Vietnamese.
The American delegation
claimed it did recognize that
right. Harriman continued,
' 'We are prepared t

of violence thus subsides."
Cycle complete
The cycle was completed
when Xuan Thuy told the
next meeting, "We require
an unconditional cessation of
the bombing and all other
American acts of war."
Thus the stalemate had
developed. The talks were
now a routine debate. It was
agreed to hold sessions only
once a week, "to give ade
quate time to study each
others statements."
By August of 1968 officials
were privately conceding
that North Vietnam had the
advantage at the talks. They
attributed it largely to
mounting opposition to the
war within the U.S.
The only significant con
cession either side made
came on Oct. 9, 1968. Xuan
Thuy proposed that, if the
U.S. were to stop bombing
the North, Hanoi would allow
Saigon to participate. The
Americans added to the con
ditions that the DMZ be
respected and that southern
cities not be attacked.
A week later the DRV
agreed to the terms, provid
ed that the Viet Cong gov
ernmental arm, the National
Liberation Front, be accepted
as a full member also.
On Oct. 31, President
Johnson halted all air,
naval, and artillery bom

The election of Richard M.
Nixon sidelined the peace
talks. Averell Harriman
resigned with very little
optimism that the talks
would solve anything before

Finally it was decided that
a rectangular table would be
placed on either side of the
main circular one. It took 77
days to reach that decision.
Henry Cabot Lodge- former
Ambassador to Vietnam,
was appointed as Harri
man's successor.
Lodge's initial statement at
Paris indicated a new en
thusiasm. "This is a unique
moment in history," he told
the session. "Today we begin
the search for an honorable

halftime, and the Huskers
