Herter said today world trade is helping to crack the once impenetrable Iron Curtain. Herler made the comment at commencement exercises at Tulane University. Herter, currently President Johnson's chief negotiator in the tariff talks at Geneva, wa.s awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree by Tulane. "A key factor in the recent assertion by some of the Eastern European regimes of a certain degree of independence from Moscow has been the pressing need to expand their trade with the West," Herter said. He noted that even Russia has reached the stage where large scale imports from the West are necessary. "Th example of the Common Market has been contagious," said Herter. "We have in recent years seen the emergency of the European Free Trade Association—known as the 'outer seven'—, the Latin American free trade association and the Central American Common Market." Success of the Geneva trade and tariff negotiations, Herter said, "offers to this generation of mankind its best prospects for establishing freedom on so broad and sjtrong a basis that it will prevail over all the dangers that beset it." i During the exeicises, 1,045 de- j grees were awarded by Tulane [President H e r b e r t E.

About 12 persons from Hackberry testified before the jury in favor of creating the gas district. Representatives of Pan American Petroleum Corp.. Cities Service Corp., and several individuals from Hackberry opposed the creation of the district because a large part of the proposed district was uninhabited and would not be served by the gas. P. II. Chaffin of Lake Charles, representing United Gas Corp., said United Gas could provide gas service to the community if a source of natural gas could be found in the area. The utilities resolution was rejected by a vote of 3 to 2 at the meeting. The resolution creating a garbage district for Hackberry was adopted unanimously by the jury. The jury also voted to accept a bid for a tractor and loader priced at $3,600, for Ward 2 and a bid for 6,000 yards of reef shell priced at $2.35 per yard.
