Congress Holds Trade Deal Trump Card By JOHN HALL WASHINGTON (UPI) - tentien foreign leaders: American summit has humps. At- The two Washington Window Leonid I. Brezhnev, general secretary of the Communist party, climbed both of them when he was here. Ho spent most of his time on the mountain with President Nixon, which is where foreign leaders ordinarily do business in the United States. But Brezhnev also spent an extraordinary 3% hours with representatives of Congress— and that is the second hump in the summit. Congress has given away a lot of power to the executive branch in foreign policy, but it still holds the trump card on Brezhnev's desire to sell Soviet goods in the American marketplace. He can sell practically nothing if Congress does not approve a bill giving "most favored nation" trade concessions to his country. And Congress has made It clear it will grant no such concessions until Brezhnev grants a few elementary civil freedoms— particularly the freedom to leave the country—to Russia's 2 million Jews. Brezhnev Finds Fact That is why Brezhnev had members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and other members of Congress in for vodka and caviar at Blair House last week. That Is why he spent all afternoon with them and that is why he spent the afternoon talking about substantive Issues, not just exchanging pleasantries. Brezhnev has recognized a fact that some American presidents have refused to recognize: That the presidency is not the only source of power in the United States. Congress must play a part ultimately In bargains—hot only trade, but on a number of other Issues in which the Constitution assigns it a role. European leaders, for Instance might be advised to keep Congress in mind when they discuss with Nixon the con-. tinuatlon of U.S. troops in Europe this fall, in view of the backing Sen. Mike Mansfield, Mfont., is receiving for his campaign to bring half the troops home. The same applies to countries bargaining for more foreign aid. Vietnam Changes Roles In the years during and after World War II, congressional attitudes were not a major factor in summitry because they nearly always coincided with presidential viewpoints. These were the heady days when presidents and key members of Congress consulted frequently and arrived at common decisions in advance of international. diplomatic arrangements like the Marshall Pirn and the Truman Doctrine. But the Vietnam War has brought about a fundamental parting of ways between the executive and legislative branch- cs that apparently neither side is wlllihg to settle behind the scenes. • There is a certain twoheadedness about American foreign policy in the 1970s, and it is just something that foreign leaders wilt have to get used to. Is this' duality necessarily wrong? Perhaps it does bother Henry Kissinger to havej Congress order an end to the bombing of Cambodia while he is trying to achieve a negotlat* ed peace—removing his "bargaining chips" as they say. Another Point , But it can also be argued that! it is useful to have Congress applying pressure of lis own on negotiations. Its Insistence on American withdrawal from Indochina might produce a greater willingness on the part of South Vietnam and Cambodia to come to terms with their adversaries. Its pressure for disengagement km Europe can bring about a greater willingness among the NATO allies to begin sharing a greater burden of the defenses. And, in the,case of Brezhnev and the trade bill and Soviet Jewry, Congress is playing the classic parliamentary role of human rights advocacy, however troublesome that may be to Brezhnev and Nixon In their quest for detente. Mrs. Doris Haynes, Geriaw, was visited June 22 by her daughter, Mrs. Joe Watson, and grandchildren, Tom and Nancy, Rocklin, Calif. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gofctler and Saibrina, Colur d' Alame, Idaho, have returned home after visiting with Mrs. Gotfeler's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Bellinger, and other relatives here.

Their first stamp was issued June 20 in honor of Pig Day. A continuing celebration held each year in PittsfieW, 111. Pike County Is located between the Mississippi and the Illinois rivers and is one of the three U.S. counties to vie annually for top honors in the production of pork. Here the citizens are glad to accept full responsibility for the origination of the phrase, "Hogs are beautiful." WARREN WINSTON, one of the leading promoters of the Pig Day stamp, informed me it is the intention of the Pike County Historical Society to issue new designs every year at the same time in limited editions. Just as with any stamp collection, a private issue contains 50 stamps to the sheet with a serial number from 0001 to O500O imprinted in the upper left corner to facilitate a plate block number as PIKE COUNTY.
