Vandals Eight tombstones were pushed over and the grave in the foreground was dug into last week at the Hoover family cemetery at Locust Stump in Braxton County. Relatives said they had no idea why the cemetery was vandalized. ( S t a f f Photo by Lawrence Pierce) Many in West Wary Of Helsinki Summit By William L. Ryan The Aiiociated Press Widespread skeptical comment on this week's Helsinki supersummit suggests that a large body of Western opinion views it with grave misgivings as an exercise tending to give Moscow important political gains in return for vague promises. A wordy declaration will be placed for ceremonial signing before 35 leaders of big and little nations including the American, Russian and Canadian chiefs. This won't be a treaty and will lack.the binding force of one, but that's unimportant to the Communists. "Treaties are like piecrusts, made to be broken," counseled Lenin, who bequeathed to his successors the contempt for international pacts that surfaced time after time, notably in multiple vioations of the 1945 Yalta agreements. * * * IMPORTANT to the Russians is what is implicit in acceptance of the final document as a guide. The 35 participants "reaffirm" the inviolability of borders as now existing and thus accept for good the division of Germany and the Communist regimes installed under Soviet guns in East Europe after World War II. Reluctantly, the Russians agreed that borders might be changed "by peaceful means," but that's hardly likely with the Soviet giant looking on, especially if political developments in the West continue to erode the foundations of the Atlantic Alliance. The Russians also agree to give advance notice of all maneuvers involving more than 25,000 troops within 150 miles of frontiers. But that's far from earth-shaking. The can maneuver to their hearts' content otherwise, and do whatever they please militarily. In turn the Kremlin was asked to accept freer exchange of ideas and information through the Iron Curtain which Moscow claims is only a Western invention. But Communists are experts at semantics, and that chances of lowering the bars are extremely dim. In fact, as international detente progressed on high official levels, the Kremlin grew tougher with regard to shielding its orbit from the possible contamination of "bourgeois ideology." * * * THE SOVIET fear of the West in this respect is an old story. Karl Marx professed to advocate freedom of information, but G. Washington, Robin Hood Arrested in Ohio CLEVELAND. Ohio - (AP) - George Washington was charged this week with receiving stolen property, and Robin Hood is awaiting trial for breaking and entering. Municipal Court Judge Ann McManamon released George B. Washington. 29. on personal bond Wednesday after he was charged with receiving a Stolen 1975 Mark IV Lincoln Continental. On Thursday. Judge McManamon ordered Robin D. Hood, 21. bound over to the Common Pleas Court on a charge of . breaking and enuring. today's Marxist-Leninists are quite the reverse. For many years the Kremlin has insisted that the West sought freer exchanges only with the aim of subverting Communist rule. At the 1971 Soviet Communist Congress, the 24th, General Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev specifically demanded relentless ideological war against "bourgeois" ideas. This was a step in the sealing -- off process that immediately preceded a 1971 four-power agreement on the status of West Berlin. That in turn melted Western opposition to convening a conference to prepare for a European security agreement. Campaigning again for European security, a 20-year goal of Soviet policy, Brezh- nev late in 1972 assured the West he was all for freer exchange of information and people, but "only if such cooperation is conducted with respect for the laws and customs of each country." Soviet laws and customs don't leave much room for a free flow of ideas. The Soviet press, meantime, has been ridiculing the idea that freedom to travel has anything to do with civil" liberties. The crackdown on internal dissent in the USSR has been pronounced in the 30 months that hundreds of diplomats spent in Geneva haggling over terms for a su- persummit. Soviet propagandists now are busily alerting Communist leaders in the orbit against Western "peaceful infiltration" plans. Again and again the Politburo leaders warn there must be "no weakening of the struggle against bourgeois ideaolgy." Thus, the ideological chasm, rather than narrowing, seems a widen and may do so even more by the 25th Soviet Congress in February, which may also be Brezhnev's swan song. * * * THE MAIN worry in Western Europe about the supersummit seems to have been about the matter of quid pro quo -what Soviet quo for the Western quid? The critics deplore the haste with which they say the summit has been convoked. The Russians had been in a hurry, because the conference would crown that 20-year Soviet drive in time for the 25th Congress. A few months more, say the critics, might have made a difference in how much the Russians might have been willing to concede in return for an apparent victory for a long-term policy goal.
