Golesburg Register-Moil, Galesbufg, Tuesday, June 26, 19735 Summit Was Public Relations Hit But What Else? By STEWART HENSLEY WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Soviet-American Summit was clearly a public relations success, but whether It, was News Analysts more than that remains to be seen. President Nixon and Soviet Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev succeeded in demon- |stratlng their continued and intense devotion to the task of easing tensions and increasing world stability. This is important. Any indication that the Soviet- American peace collaboration was losing momentum would jhave had an adverse effect, not only in their relations but on Having a DULL time trying to cut with worn SCISSORS or KNIVES? BRING YOUR PROBLEM UTENSILS TO OUR SHARPENING EXPERT: RAY VAN HYNING (also a bonded, master locksmith) 712 E. Main Gajeshurg ' 342-5012 other nations whose courses are determined by the climate between Washington and Moscow. However, there must be further progress in lessening danger of nuclear conflict. In particular, there must be a formal treaty limiting and possifoly reducing the strategic offensive nuclear weapons in the arsenals of the two countries. And Russia must bo given the trading status the Kremlin wants in order to enjoy parity with most, other nations and to secure access to U.S. loans on favorable terms. The speeches and the final communique were optimistic on these points but very vague on the specifics and mechanics, the explanations by administration spokesmen did not help much. Although a wide number of subjects were discussed, there were three critical issues to be dealt with at this time. —Trade: The Soviet Union appears likely to get what it wants. Nixon, in a trade agreement last year, promised Russia trade equality and credits under the "most fa vored nation" arrangement. However, Sen. , Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., and 77 other senators have said they will not approve this concession unless the Soviet Union permanently abandons the high taxes on Jewish emigration to Israel. Indications arc the legislators will change their minds now. Failure Would Cause Delay Brezhnev told them that failure to grant the trade concession, which he badly needs to secure U.S. equipment, technical know-how and credits, would make it necessary for him to drag his feet on major issues such as arms control. Administration officials have pointed out to Jackson and others that the Russians have suspended the emigration tax but would probably reimpose it if the Senate acted adversely on trade. — Nuclear Arms Limita Hons: Nixon and Brezhnev, declaring that progress had been made on a treaty to limit and reduce strategic offensive nuclear weapons, said they hoped to complete the pact sometime next year. Inasmuch as their two negotiating teams have • been able to make virtually no progress on this issue in the past six months, and also In view of the complexity of the problem, there was a tendency in Washington to consider the target date of 1974 as unrealistic. —Prevention of Nuclear War: The President and Brezhnev signed a "surprise" agreement on this subject which puzzled diplomatic observers who were not certain exactly what it was supposed to mean. They agreed to refrain from the threat or use of force against each other or each other's allies, an obligation they already had undertaken when they signed the United Nations Charter, In Brandt Policy DcpartsFrom 'Bitter Past' By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst In Bonn on June 20, in a new [pact with Czechoslovakia, West German Chancellor Willy Brandt's policy of ostpolitik reached a peak of success which even four years ago would have seemed impossible. addition, Russia and the United States agreed that if relations between other countries appeared to involve the risk of nuclear war between Washington and Moscow, the two nuclear superpowers would "immediately enter into urgent consultations with each other and make every effort to avert this risk." This appeared to be a warning to smaller nations not to try to play off one of the big powers against the other. Although the tendency of the two principals to indulge in champagne-drenched platitudes and hyperbole tended to give the impression that there was more froth than substance to the summit, this was not necessarily the case. There was plenty of hard work done In the working sessions but it will take time to disclose whatever real progress was made. 441 E.

For the Soviets it was the 20 million who died. For the Poles it was the death decreed by Hitler for Warsaw and the 22 per cent of Poland's pre-war population who also died. And for the Czechs it was Lidice, the Sudetanland and the Munich pact. Slaughter The 1938 Munich pact gave Hitler the Sudetanland. And it was at Lidice in 1942 that the Germans slaughtered all the men and razed the village in revenge for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the Ger man "protector" of Bohemia and Moravia. It was to Munich that the Czechs most frequently referred in the grim days of 1968 as they braced against the Soviet invasion that was to end their brief attempt to put a human face" on communism. This correspondent well recalls an interview in Warsaw with a Polish economic planner who railed against German chauvinism" which he said the United States was encouraging because it failed to recognize Poland's new Oder- Neisse boundary. West Germany, he said, was growing stronger each day and perhaps soon would be strong enough again to attempt to regain its lost eastern lands. In Between In the cold war years these were the nations in between. On the one side was the Soviet Union's Nikita Khrushchev who threatened to "bury" the West beneath his new j economics and occasionally used Berlin as a blackmail threat against peace. And on the other was the displaced schoolteacher in Hanover who mourned that his son was growing up without knowing the lost lands to the east. Brandt tossed aside as i unproductive the hard line which had been followed by West Germany's first chancellor, Konratl Adenauer, and the former U.S. secretary of state, John Foster Dulles, and called for "reality." The result assured him a place in history and a departure from the bitter memories of the past. Opened Way I In 1970 came his pacts with jtho Soviet Union and Poland, land on June 20 the initialing of ! the agreement with Czecho [Slovakia. The pact with Czecho jslovakia opened the way to 'similar agreements with Hungary and Bulgaria, rounding out the package. It was noteworthy that the G e r m a n businessman had move d into Czechoslovakia ahead of the treaty setting up diplomatic relations. Under a trade treaty valid until 1974, West Germany sold Czechoslovakia $430 million worth of goods last year and imported about $310 million worth of Czecholvakia products.
