The United States and Britain are agreed that while it is difficult to keep large forces on a stand-by basis over 'long periods, preparations must provide for quick availability of trained and equipped reserves, if the emergency requires them. The United States has plans that would call for fighting with conventional weapons in the air and on the ground, at least for an initial period.

S, armor at point-blank range for 16 nerve- wracking hours. U! S, tanks withdrew 73 minutes later. The United States lessened tension further by letting it be known chat the jeeploads of armed U.S. military police who had escorted ^.civilian officials into East Berlin had proved their point and that such trips were no longer necessary for the time being. " v A high U. S. official hj Washington said the emphasis would shift now to diplomacy in hopes of easing the Berlin crisis. But he did * not rule out more "test" incidents should Communist East German actions warrant it. American officials in Berlin said ^tthe Soviet action in bringing in tanks proved the Western point that the Soviets were still the | masters of East Germany and not : the East Germans. Russia insists East Germany is a sovereign! state.

Lesser is 7 sues, some continuous and some relatively new,' include tax regulations, on so-called "ABC" deals, crude prices and use of public lands. The occasion will be the 32nd annual meeting of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, an organization with some strong general ideas on the subjects to be discussed, but lacking complete agreement on the details. Recent crude price r r e d u~c- tions and cutbacks will'add a'new urgency to practically -,al,l isslies taken, up by committees or before.'the, general 'convention./ »ln short, the general tone of the convention is not likely to be one of optimism. The program calls for "beefing up ... many programs of defending depletion of its merits." Committees will hear reports on the current re-evaluation of the federal imports program, including the trade agreements act which is up for extension and review in 1962. Proposed "area pricing" of na.t' ural gas will be discussed along with proposed legislation for regulating the sale of gas.
