THE ARC.US PagcS Fremont - Newark, California Saturday, October 5,1968 ft* 'Temporary Stationing' Dubcek Signs New Treaty; Soviets' Occupation Troops To Stay MOSCOW (UPI)-Czechoslovakia Friday night agreed to i treaty providing for the indefi nite stationing of Soviet troop; on Czechoslovak soil. Th( official Tass news agcncj announced the pact at the cnc of a two-day summit conference in the Kremlin. Czechoslovak Communist Parly First Secretary Alexander Dubcek and two other top Prague officials agreed to sign the treaty permitting the "temporary stationing" of Russian forces in their country, Tass said. The Tass communique reiterated that these forces would eventually be withdrawn "by stages" but it gave no timetable for this. SAME DESCRIPTION Tlie treaty would give a legality to the invasion Aug. 20 21 which sent troops of the Soviet Union, East Germany, Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary marching into Czechoslovakia to crush what the Russians des c r i b e d as "anti-Socialist forces." The term "temporary stationing" is the same description the Russians have given to the Soviet troops which remain in Hungary today 12 years after they moved into that country to crush the 1956 "freedom fighters" revolt. Participating in the Moscow conference with Dubcek were Premier Oldrich Cernik, Vice Premier Gustav Husak and the ruling Russian troika: Party First Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev, Premier Alexei N. Kosygin and President Nikolai Podgorny. SEEN OFF Dubcek, Cernik and Husak left Moscow for Prague immedi- ately after the talks ended Friday night, Tass said. It said they were seen off at Vnukovo-2 airport by the Soviet leadership. "The question of the presence of allied troops on the territory of Czechoslovakia was discussed in the course of the talks," the Friday night communique said. "The sides agreed that the governments would consider and sign a treaty on the temporar troops in "In ac documen talks in I of the carried c The A milted D leaders c to powe that t h stationing of allied 7echoslovakia. accordance w i t h t h e ts of the Aug. 23-26 Moscow the withdrawal other troops will be jut by stages."

The announcement said both sides discussed problems of peace and state security. As for the Czechoslovaks, the communique said: "They will intensify the struggle against the anti- socialist forces, will take the necessary measures to place all the mass information media at the service of socialism, will reinforce the party ana siaie organs with men firmly adhering to positions of Marxism- Leninism and proletarian internationalism." The talks were described by qualified informants as tough and outspoken, a description backed up by the communique which said they were held in "a spirit of comradeship, businesslike cooperation and frankness." Fremont's Heirs Sue Over Fort SAN FRANCISCO (TJPI) The heirs of Gen. John Fremont filed suit in federal court Thursday for Fort Mason, which they contend was seized from the general without payment - by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. The fort, 70 acres of prime waterfront land in San Francisco's exclusive Marine district, is being phased out by the armed services. Half has been declared excess properly and turned over to the General Services Administration for disposal. Mayor Joseph Alioto has suggested city acquisition and resale of the fort for high-priced housing developments. Public hearings on .the use of Fort Mason arid two other forts in the city will begin in two weeks. The suit, latest in a series, was filed on behalf of Jesse Benton Fremont and Juliette Hull of New York City and Valerie Larson of San .Francisco, all descendants of "The Pathfinder." Named as defendants were Clark Clifford, U.S. Secretary o! Defense, and Lawson B. Knot 1 Jr., administrator of Genera Services. The suit said Fremont ha( improved the land by approximately $40,000 after purchasing it for $42,000 in the mid-1850s. The suit alleged the government seized the property without payment by executive order of President Lincoln during the Civil War on grounds it was needed for the war effort.
