TAAKA VODKA other ministers, warning against succumbing either to Soviet promises or threats, and pointing out that the Russians, who seem to be making more friends than the West in the third world, send mostly arms and little economic aid. Crosland, speaking more sharply although on the same line as Kissinger, called the Soviet contribution to third-world development 80, 90.4 & 100 PROOF, DISTILLED FROM GRAIN, SAZERAC CO., INC., N.O., LA. X Kissinger took care to emphasize the need for balance in his valedictory." In the long term, he said, Soviet power would keep growing because its industrial and economic power would grow. While that did not necessarily mean that Moscow has a plan for world domination, he said, it did mean that Soviet use of force would be unpredictable. Therefore, he stressed his recent theme that the West must not disarm psychologically by putting too much faith in detente, and neither should it paralyze itself with fears that the Russians have become overwhelming. In order to assure that western populations will be willing to defend themselves if need be, it is essential that the West make serious, convincing efforts to negotiate for peace, he said. The same approach was echoed by objectives and compete unfairly in western markets despite its own economic troubles. Kissinger also spoke of the North-South relation as important to the future, mentioning that Moscow sends the third world little except arms. He said that NATO had learned better than any other alliance that while 'foreign policy could not be successful without military security, military preparations alone were not enough. In his overall review of world trouble spots, he said the prospects were good for progress toward a settlement in the Middle East and for Western interests there. He supported the British on southern African negotiations, and warned that African radicals would gain ground if moderates failed to reach agreement on stable new black majority governments. AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE (Heating & Air Conditioning) REPLACEMENT UNITS CENTRAL SYSTEMS WW The British minister called for Western consultations on subsidized credits for deals with the Russians, an old proposal that has stumbled before over allied competition for trade. But it was important now, Crosland said, to prevent a transfer of resources to Moscow which enabled it to promote its third-world AIR CONDITIONING l.lLri 1 cit. 19790 30 Years of Service n SPECIAL HOLIDAY SAVINGS ON FAMOUS MAKER JEANS AND KNIT SHIRTS HE WANTS TO FIND UNDER THE TREE!

Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger making his last major speech to the allies, warned that it would be very dangerous to draw any clear distinctions beforehand on when the West might move from conventional to nuclear weapons in the face of attack. Britain's Foreign Minister Anthony Crosland called the Soviet-backed proposals cheap propaganda tricks. West Germany's Hans Dietrich Genscher said almost the same. The rejection of a freeze on alliance members was intended to hold the door open for the addition of Spain a reflection of how much European attitudes have changed in the last year, as post-Franco Spain has begun to transform itself The United States for years has been advocating drawing Spain closer to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, but the Europeans refused any such involvement until the Madrid government became democratic. Participants said this year's annual ministerial meeting was one of the most harmonious in a long time, with everybody agreed that growing Soviet power made it more necessary than ever to unify and strengthen the alliance. There was, said one, "a great sigh of relief" when Kissinger read a message from President-elect Jimmy Carter, pledging that "the NATO alliance shall be sustained and strengthened under my administration." Kissinger said he was "leaving the foreign policy of the United States in excellent hands" and was near tears as his fellow foreign ministers praised him as "an eminent world diplomatic figure." In his message, Carte said, "Our NATO alliance lies at the heart of the partnership between North America and Western Europe. "NATO is the essential instrument for enhancing our collective security." Kissinger heard the accolades of his peers. Delegates to the meeting said he appeared deeply moved when Council President Jose Medeiro Fereirra of Portugal said, "It is with great regret that we watch this eminent figure of world diplomacy leave the scene." British Foreign Secretary Anthony Crosland at one point turned to Kissinger sitting at his side and said he did not intend to praise him at this meeting. He said he was taking Kissinger back to London with him after the meeting and would take over the public address system at the Wolverhampton-Chelsea soccer match Saturday to deliver heartfelt tribute. Crosland praised Kissinger for his "courageous and audacious" influence in seeking a peaceful settlement to the Rhodesia crisis. "Without Kissinger's intervention," Crosland said, "there would be no Rhodesia conference in Geneva." Kissinger appeared to be close to tears as he closed his remarks by expressing how much it has meant to him to participate in such meetings with colleagues that he valued so much. Kissinger also praised his successor, Cyrus Vance, as "a just, fair and able man" and urged his NATO colleagues to give him full cooperation. Soviets Criticized As 'Stingy' BRUSSELS, Belgium (UPI) -America and Britain criticized the Soviet Union yesterday for its tightwad attitude toward the world's poor countries. Sources at the NATO foreign ministers' conference reported Kissinger told the closed-door session the West supplies 90 per cent of the transfer of resources that developing countries receive. Soviet aid to the developing world is pitifully small, British Foreign Secretary Anthony Cros-land said, and in any case the Communists mostly send arms. He told the foreign ministers Russia has evolved into an imperialist power in the classic manner. Kissinger said Soviet policy is based on a mean spirit of "petit-bourgeois nationalism" aimed only at promoting the Kremlin's self-interest, the sources said. He said the Soviets play no appreciable part in world councils, such as the North-South conference and other talks between rich and poor countries, and when they do intervene in developing nations it is only to grab opportunities to extend their influence, as in Angola. Soviet stinginess in helping poor nations enables the Communists to devote their resources to an arms buildup of worrying proportions and promote friction around the world, Crosland said, He urged Western countries to hammer away at the theme of freedom of ideas and movement to give encouragement to the people of Eastern Europe. Through the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Crosland said, Western nations sent 25 times as much aid as the Soviets to the Third World in 1975. Even counting the entire Communist bloc, the proportion came to no more than 5 per cent, the sources said. SALE!
