assis losing das touch to leek regime C ··; ' '?:. ; ' · ' - . . . O (AP) -- Aristotle Onassis, the Lrreek Midas with the golden touch, is losing nsatister -- a victim of the fuel crisis and thejnew government here. Bjifuel crisis, which Kast year, eventual- y "robbed the 69-year-old Tiujtipliionaire and hus- )andip| Jacqueline Kennedy bflis'last big stake in his 'oft homeland: Olympic Aifways. Th"new government is :rying«to limit the privi- eges ot.the business class m general, and Premier Constantine Caramanlis is said to be "trying hard to avoid becoming the usual pavin':'' of the money clique." The dispute over Greece's national air carHei? between Onassis a n d^|h e v a r i o u s Greek governments in power singe-^last y e a r began when.Jtie'rnagnate, claim- in g^financial losses be- cause^pjpthe fuel squeeze, demjiidfed'a $16.7'million loaKpJuel price help for the'.jfif'fleet, and increased 'fg|-. es f° r domestic flights^ The^last governing j u n l i f f l e l a y e d its response,;*and with the return ojfc'democratic government last July Onassis found things even tougher. Last month he renounced the agreement to exclusive operation rights'^over O l y m p i c which he held since 1956. Then a^week ago, agreement was announced for the stafe- to take over the A SPOKESMAN for Onassis' b u s i n e s s interests said the magnate is currently "lying low." He said his eounterdemands stem from Onassis' "realization of his mistake" to renounce operation rights over Olympic, and that he is now "back-peddling to save as much as. possible." He described these attempts as "basically spasmodic moves." ARISTOTLE ONASSIS Losing His Luster ment the next day. Instead, the official said Onassis sent a memorandum with the eounierde- mands. ' The official said Onassis "still has a number of powerful c a r d s in his hands which could cause difficulties- for the government." He said this concerned finance, but would not elaborate. Olympic o n l y owns 'a few of its planes, mainly 'small j e t s for internal flights. Most of the Boeings were chartered from a Panamanian corporation controlled by Onassis. company's operation.

The spokesman said Olympic was important to Onassis "because he used it as a helpful balance in his international business deals." Russ press hardens criticisms of U.S. A all. By GEORGE A. KRIMSKY (AP) - The Soyiet press is feeding its reaHers'"an unusually bit- ter^iet of anti-American propaganda these days. ''It's gotten a lot tough- . er, '{here's no doubt about thati'|£ said one Western observer of the Soviet press*-"Something cer-, tainly'ftfias happened to turn them on, and it can't be attributed to the ac- tions'of a few errant editors." The switch is even more apparent after the sweet gentleness that pervaded the Soviet press following the me'eting in Vladivostok two months ago between President Ford and Leonid I. Brezhnev, the Soviet Communist Party leader. THEN, the Soviet press drew a picture of h a r - mony .between the United States' and the Soviet Union, and held out hope for a better world. N;pw Pravda, the party organ, and Izvestia, the government newspaper, depTctlthe United States as ,3m":'ungrateful and mjpfal friend.

I Ford's White House [doesn't seem to have the ·immunity from criticism ·enjoyed by his prcdecccs- sor^Richard M ' N JT luring those days of dp- lento following the break- through summit of 1972. Even- during the best of times, the Soviet press has taken swipes at the American capitalist scene as part of the ongoing ideological struggle designed to prove the superiority of socialism. But such articles-took a back seat to positive commentary during such periods as the November summit in Vladivostok. And then the chill set in. ON DEC. 18, the Soviet Union "flatly rejected as unacceptable" the new U.S. trade bill attaching preconditions that C o m m u n i s t countries must loosen up emigra- ANALYSIS (ion if they want to do more business with America. As press criticism of the bill grew, there were hints that the Soviets m i g h t retaliate against what it considered to be discriminatory legislation, and which it claimed violated the t r a d e a g r e e m e n t signed by Nixon and Brezhnev in June 1972. Then it was announced in Washington last week t h a t the Soviet Union could not accept the legislation and that the entire agreement was shelved along with any conditions that emigration would increase. Coincidentally or n o t , Brezhnev has been absent from public view through most of the bad political weather. He has not made a public appearance since Dec. 24, and rumors abound that he has been ill. Soviet officials have refused to confirm or deny these reports, but the press did slap down speculation'that a power struggle is under way in the Kremlin.
