BONN (Continued from Page 1) ern diplomat commented: 'As usual, the Russians have a door open. They're smart enough not to bother the Allies. But Ido think the Russians will let East Germany use its so-called sovereignty to force recognition by West Germany." Real Sovereignly The East German delegation which negotiated the new treaty with Moscow claimed it gives the East Germans "real sovereignty- contrary to the phony sovereignty Bonn received from the Western Powers." Its provisions include: 1. Pledges of mutual respect for the sovereignty of both countries, with "no interference in internal affairs.' 1 2. East Germany was proclaimed "free to decide questions concerning its domestic and foreign policies, 'including relations to the (West) German Federal Republic, and also the development of relations to other countries."' 3. Russia agreed to release German war prisoners still held by the Soviet Union, the same promise made to West Germany 4. Russian troops will continue on East German soil as long as American, British and French troops remain in West Germany. 5. The two countries "respect the obligations" both have under international agreements "concerning all of Germany." This is considered as plain acknowledgement of the four-power status of Berlin. 11 lego I Meters Bring Revenue JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Pla.

VP)—Prospects lor peace are better than they have been at any time since World War II, but it's no occasion for relaxing vigilance, Vice President Richard Nixon said last night.

But he asserted the government is not being lulled into a false sense of security by the recent conciliatory moves of Soviet leaders, adding ihe United States and the free world "are strong enough to meet and defeat attack by any potential aggressor."
