    UNITED STATES SENATOR EDWARD KENNEDY HAD A 90-MINUTE TALK WITH PRIME MINISTER HOUARI BOUMEDIENNE YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) AFTER ARRIVING IN ALGERIA FROM MOROCCO FOR A THREE-DAY FACT-FINDING VISIT. SENATOR KENNEDY WAS ACCOMPANIED BY CONGRESSMAN JOHN TUNNEY. THEY ARRIVED FIVE HOURS LATE AFTER BREAKDOWNS ON TWO AIRCRAFT WHICH HELD UP THEIR JOURNEY FROM RABAT IN THE MOROCCAN BORDER TOWN OF OUJDA.

    SENATOR KENNEDY GAVE PRIME MINISTER BOUMEDIENNE A LEATHER-BOUND COPY OF A SPEECH MADE IN 1957 BY THE LATE PRESIDENT KENNEDY, IN WHICH HIS BROTHER CALLED FOR ALGERIA'S INDEPENDENCE FROM FRENCH RULE.

    FURTHER DETAILS OF THE TALKS WERE NOT RELEASED, BUT SENATOR KENNEDY WAS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS VIETNAM, AMERICAN INVESTMENTS AND PALESTINE REFUGEES, IN WHICH HE HAS A SPECIAL INTEREST, DURING THE VISIT.

    SENATOR KENNEDY'S VISIT TO ALGERIA COINCIDED WITH THE ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S TRAGIC DEATH (NOVEMBER 22 1963), AND HE WAS SCHEDULED TO LAY A WREATH AT PLACE JOHN KENNEDY IN ALGIERS TOMORROW.

    DURING THE SENATOR'S FOUR-DAY VISIT TO MOROCCO HE WAS UNABLE TO SEE KING HASSAN AS SCHEDULED, DUE TO THE INDISPOSITION OF THE MOROCCAN MONARCH.
