(Courier News Photo) Kremlin Frets Over Balkan Nationalism By HENRY S. BRADSHER BUHCAREST, Romania (P) —Nationalism, the powerful force that has' often brought trouble to the Balkans, is storing today in Romania. The nation's Communist leaders are cultivating the nationalist spirit to unite the nation in a determination to seek its own destiny without interference from the Soviet Union. Romanian nationalism has proved a headache for the Kremlin, which has dominated this part of the Balkans for a generation. In theory, Communists deplore nationalism, which runs counter to the Red credo that the workers of the world should unite and break down national barriers. Romanian nationalism manifested Itself several years ago in a rebellion against Moscow's economic plans. The Soviets wanted this land of rich wheat fields and oil wells to specialize in some products and import others, tying itself to Soviet economic needs. * * * Romania refused and made some pointed remarks about it being uncommunistic "for one country to try to exploit another. With success on the economic front, Romania became more assertive, moving into the tricky explosive field of territorial claims. The extensive overlapping of linguistic groups in the Balkans — people speaking Romanian living among those speaking Hungarian, for instance—has been the cause of much bloodshed. In 1964 Romania published gome old writings of the Communist prophet, Karl Marx, saying that Bessarabia should be part of Romania. Before World War I, Bessarabia was in czarist Russia but its _ people spoke Romanian, Ukrainian and other languages. After that war, Romania got Bessarabia from the Soviet Union and another Romania n-speaking region named Bukovina from the Aus tro-Hungarian Empire. * * * Stalin, with Adolf Hitler's approval, demanded Bessarabia back in June 1940, during the ;wo-year Soviet-Nazi alliance before Hitler attacked the Soviet Union. Stalin also demanded part of Bukovina, although It had never been Russian. Weak and defenseless, Romania yielded. The Communist regime installed here after World War II did not talk about this. But in 1964, documents began to appear here to show that the majority of the people in Bessara- bia and Bukovina still speak Romanian. These areas are now Soviet Moldavia and part of the Soviet Ukraine.

Brandt Deals Ludwig Erhard Political Blow By GEORGE ARFELD BONN, Germany (AP) — West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt's political stock rose today after his Socialist parly scored big election gains in West Germany's richest and most populous state. The outcome of the balloting Sunday in North Rhine-Westphalia dealt a sharp blow to the prestige of Chancellor Ludwig Erhard, whose Christian Democrats lost 10 seats in the state Parliament. The ruling coalition of Christian Democrats and Free Democrats emerged with the barest majority of 101 of the 200 seats. The Socialists picked up nine seats from the Christian Democrats. With 99 seats in Parliament, they are now the strongest single party in the state. The Free Democrats took one Christian Democrat seat, winning 15, and the Christian Democrats dropped from 96 to 86 seats. Heinz Kuehn, 45-year-old journalist turned politician, headed the Socialist ticket but Brandt, 52, was generally credited for the victory because of his oratory and tireless campaigning. Brandt had been written off as a political has-been on the national scene following his second defeat as candidate for chancellor last year. Observers now predicted that he would head the Socialist ticket again in the 1969 federal elections. Many believed that Erhard, who campaigned as actively as Brandt in the state, contributed to his party's defeat by antagonizing voters in some Ruhr communities. The chancellor's continuous references to his role in West Germany's economic miracle did not sit well in mining areas hit by unemployment. . Drowned out at one rally, Erhard stormed from the rostrum after calling his hecklers "rabble." The results of the state election were expected to touch off a fight inside .the Christian Democratic party. Some members want Erhard to dump the Free Democrats from his coalition and join with the Socialists, who control enough votes' in the federal Parliament to block legislation requiring a two-thirds majority. , Even the name Adenauer failed to score in North Rhine- Westphalia. Dr. Max Adenauer, son of the former chancellor, was defeated in Cologne where his father first gained prominence as lord mayor, In a speech May 7, the general secretary of the Romanian Communist Party, Nicolae Ceausescu, indirectly blamec Soviet leadership of the world Communist movement foi hurting Romania in the perioi before the beginning of Worl< War II. Ceausescu blamed the Mos cow-controlled party for calling Romania an imperialist state holding oppressed people in oc cupied territory. This apparent ly meant the party dutifully supported Stalin's desire to get Bessarabia back. A few days after Ceausescu spoke, Soviet Communist Party Secretary General Leonid I Brezhnev came to Bucharest The visit seems to have beer hasty, possibly made because ol the speech, which also con tained criticism of all military alliances. The official description o Ceausescu's talks with Bre zhnev made them sound rathe: cool. Ceausescu then went off to border areas near Bessarabic and Bukovina to recall Romani an history rather pointedly. Brezhnev was liere again last week for a summit conference of the Soviet bloc nations. One of the main items of business was strengthening the command structure of the East European military alliance, the Warsaw Pact. Romania apparently blocked the Soviet plan because it did not want to relinquish any control over its own 200,000-man army. Vacation Is Over for Congress sidered later. The authorization bill, substantially larger than administration recommendations, includes provision tor several controversial Items such as a nuclear frigate and as start on a second, and development of a new manned bomber and the Nike X antimissile system. the House next takes up its Version of the |U-Dillion foreign aid authorization act, which for the first time would authorize a two-year program. Congress previously has insisted on authorizing foreign aid only a year at a time, with a lull review each year. The Senate has a different version which may bo. considered late in the week, or more probably next week. Viet Nam and foreign policy generally are certain to figure largely in the debate in both chambers. The House has only minor matters before it today, but the Senate considers a House- passed bill to give federal civilian employes a pay raise of about 2. per 9 cent, with improvements in fringe benefits. The Senate, after acting on the defense authorization, is scheduled to take up legislation for stepping up programs to alleviate water and air pollution. Later in the week, if time permits, the Senate is expected to renew a lively Internal scrap on a proposal to add members of the Foreign Relations Committee to the special watchdog committee supervising the Central Intelligence Agency. Present members of the watchdog committee, now drawn from the Armed Services and Appropriations committees, oppose enlargement. Got Termites; Coll ACME! Don't Want Termites? Call ACME!
