Donnelly Bald, however, that "past and present evidence demon- struts that the Interference of the Soviet occupation authorities with communications and traffic to and from Berlin had the inevitable effect of thwarting the development of healthy trade between West and East Germany." He said "I am sure that it U not necessary to list for you the long and well-known record of harassment of Berlin by the Soviet oc- cupnfion authorities." Donnelly added: "Apart from the measures alluded to above the Soviel occupation authorities have within the last six months Instituted a scries of drasllc measures designed to seal oil Germany from Weftt Germany, as BgnlnKl which emphatic protests have been made on several occasions." Donnelly questioned the sincerity if the Russians. BJ>YTHEV1LL1 (ARK.)
