Europeans have expressed strong opposition to Kissinger's earlier suggestion for a new Atlantic Charter. Nixon planned to visit European capitals in the early fall to reach an agreement with the allies. However, little has been said lately about this visit. By GORDON P. JOSELOFF MOSCOW (UPI) - The Soviet mania for secrecy is clouding otherwise bright" prospects for further improvement of relations with the United States. Unless the Kremlin is more forthcoming with information, Soviet-American trade as well as space cooperation could be affected. The problem is the Soviets never before have had to tell what they did not want told There was no reason to do so Now there is. American bankers and businessmen have been in the vanguard of those seeking to learn some of the Kremlin's secrets. "The information given out about the Soviet economy is very much less than that given out by other countries," said 3-LB.

Moam- mar Khadafy as he presses for full union with Egypt apparently has been resolved. Khadafy was concerned that France would suspend delivery of its Mirage warplanes —of which Libya has 100-plus on order. One argument has been that by uniting with Egypt in a ceremony scheduled for Sept. 1, Libya will become a "frontline" nation and therefore ineligible to receive war weapons. However, France does not go along with this view and political sources in Paris say she has assured Khadafy there •will be no halt to Mirage supplies. David Rockefeller, chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, on a recent Moscow visit. "Unless they are prepared J over time to give more, very large credits would be difficult to obtain." Rockefeller's words echoed those of a few weeks earlier from Henry Kearns, chairman of the U.S. Export-Import Bank. Some American businessmen have been willing to make concessions to Soviet secrecy in their eagerness to do business here. But the concessions may not continue indefinitely. The Soviet space program long shrouded in secrecy because of its military potetv tial, is an especially sensitive area and thus a special problem. Dr. Philip Handler, president of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, told Soviet scientists recently they must soon explain recent Soviet space failures to insure that the planned U.S.-Soviet space mission proceeds on schedule. Western monitors have detected at least four major Soviet space failures in the past two months. The failures raised doubts among American scientists about the Soviets' ability to carry out their half of the joint space project, in which a two-man Soyuz craft and a three-man Apollo ship are scheduled to link up in space in the summer of 1975. At the end of a two-week visit, Handler would not discuss in detail with American newsmen the state ' of the Soviet space program. Ho referred them to Western accounts.of the Soviet failures and said, "All of us can be concerned for reasons that are] well known." ! Handler said he told Mstislav Kelydsch, president of the Soviet Academy of Sciences, that "There will come a time before we do the formal linkup when we are going to have to have more definitive information than we have been provided as to the current status of your program." The Soviets have not admitted failures, and it would !be greatly embarrassing to .concede privately to American scientists what has been denied publicly. READ THE WANT ADS! ii! NEED SIDING?

The outstanding example: Japan imports 3.9 million tons of soybeans annually, with 3.2 million coming from the United States, and Tanaka is under fire for putting all his eggs in one basket.
