    A PARTY OF EUROPEAN AND NORTH AMERICAN RELIGIOUS LEADERS LEFT LONDON TODAY (MONDAY) AT THE START OF A GOODWILL MISSION TO NORTH VIETNAM. THEY WERE ANGLICAN BISHOP AMBROSE REEVES, RABBI ABRAHAM FEINBERG, A UNITED STATES CITIZEN WHO LIVES IN CANADA, AND THE REVEREND A.J. MUSTE, A PRESBYTERIAN PASTOR FROM THE UNITED STATES. A FOURTH MEMBER OF THE MISSION, PASTOR MARTIN NIEMOLLER FROM WEST GERMANY, FLEW TO HANOI ON FRIDAY.
