Moscow's spokesman at Madrk was a Russian by the name at Vigdor who Is said to represent the U.S.S.H.. Oil Trust. Spain was apparently represented by "dl rectors" of CAMPSA, state-owned petroleum monopoly, and accord ing to some sources, by Seno Sangronlz. Soviet expert on Franco's Foreign Ministry.

Toay the 20-year-old daughter o! 1r. and Mrs. J. L. Nabers, 518 W, Main, holds one of the fe» Certificates in Riding issued by American colleges.

And of her ports In Morocco and elsewhere ; in North Africa. 3. Repatriation by loite of ex- Soviet citizens and Red Army "deserters" who have been residing In Spain since the end of World War II. Moscow offered in rflliriK 1. Oil, cotton and other raw ma- :t]*!s ] "Possible access to the East European markets. i 3. Repatriation of survivors ot ' Franco's "Blue Brigade" which invaded Russia together with Hitler's armies. Some members nf this brigade have already been repatriated through Turkey. The most sordid part of the negotiations concerned a group of anti-Franco Republicans who fled to Russia following their defeat In the Spanish civil war. Originally staunch supporters of the Communist cause, many of these Republicans have since become disillusioned in tile "Workers' Fatherland" and are in disfavor with the Politburo. Some o! them are at present in forced Soviet labor camps at Karaganda. Their return to Franco Spain would mean certain death. Seek Use nf Ports The Soviet negotiators wer?

"The five-gaited is my favorite.' she said, indicating that it is the more versatile horse, but "I like jumpers, if they'r r good at It." Miss Nabers has been riding " long as I can remember," and has been pevforming in horse shows for about the last five years.
