Rollins was moved to another camp but Urabel kept contact with the captssin. "They would lead him out to the latrine and you could see he was black and blue and swollen all over," he said. "But we never heard him scream. They would keep him in that hole tied like a hog and the rain would fall in on him until he was lying in inches of mud. But when they brought him out he would be holding up his head, proud like. LIVING SYMBOL "He knew we were all pulling for him and he didn't want to let us down."

The West proved once during the 1948-49 blockade that it could feed Berlin by air through the existing system of three 20-mile-wide corridors across Soviet-occupied East Germany. Allied airmen are not sure an airlift would work with just one wide corridor. So they are taking no chances. "The single corridor idea is a dead duck," a Western official said.

Some kind of face-saving agreements may eventually emerge. But they are most likely to be of minor importance. One thing the West wants to make sure: Whatever changes are made must not in any way restrict the present aerial access to Berlin.

It was easy to detect, for instance, the recent abarn donment of four Soviet fighter bases.
