Germany Uf> — Chancellor Konrad Adenauer told the Soviet Union today that his government would be willing lo consider a demilitarized zone in Central Kurope if the Russians would agree lo "reunification of Germany in freedom." In a 4,000-word message, Adenauer said he wanted to reassure the Russians his government is willing lo accept any legitimate Soviet proposal that would guarantee a free, rcunilcd Germany. Would Make Concessions He made it clear that he was witling to make some concessions, saying: "If the Soviet government seriously fears (he revival ol German 'militarism' it is free lo demand, logclher with the reunification of Germany, effective guarantees of its (Russia's) security." Adenauer again rejected the Soviel proposal lhat he negotiate German reunification with the Communist East German government. The 17 million East Germans, Adenauer said, arc not free lo make any decisions for themselves. They are. he added, under "the domination of Communist functionaries, who are falsely called the working class." The note was handed to the Soviet government in Moscow Friday. It was the third exchange between the two governments in 24 hours and was in reply to a Soviet message sent last October. Adenauer in the past has firmly opposed a neutral Germany but has said he would agree to keeping all weapons out of whal is now East Germany if the nation is reunited. He appeared to lake a cautious step further in today's message. Adenauer pointed out (hat Ihe Ittissians. in their October message, had said they svould view wjj£ "interest. . .the selling up ol a dcmilitarized zone in Europe between fast and West," and al the same time asked Bonn if it would sign an agreement renouncing the use of force. Calls For Reunification "The ideas menlioned in these statements," Adenauer replied, "could be important elements in a security system which could guarantee reunification to Germany and peace and freedom to all European states and also to reunified Germany." Bonn, he added, "has no hesitation about linking an agreement on the reunification of Germany with contractual obligations reaffirming the reunificalion of the use of force."

Mitchell Presents Ih-oiui Proposals To Senate Coinmiuce WASHINGTON t* _ The Eiscn- lower administration broadened ts proposals for protection of la- jor welfare-pension funds today to cover all funds and to provide criminal penalties for stealing from them. The broad new bill was pre- scnled lo a Senate Labor subcommittee by Secretary of Labor Mitchell, who said in prepared testimony that findings of the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee, other congressional probes and his department's studies had brought the conclusion "that our original proposals may be improved and strengthened." The new proposals went far fa- ward meeting objections which Jen. Douglas (D-II1) had raised In he former administration proposals in testimony prepared for the same hearing. Douglas is the author of another bill on the same subject. Would Provide Penalfiu Douglas' prepared testimony had said that while the framers of the original administration bill "have good intentions, the work of their hands is a toothless crip- pie." Douglas' bill, like the new administration plan, would apply to both union and management-operated funds and would provide criminal penalties for misuse. House hearings are also to slart n a few days on similar legisla- ion a major step aimed at curb- ng labor corruption. An estimated 75 million workers and members of their families are beneficiaries of these funds.
