State Circuit Judge George Wai- Jace of Clayton, Ala, who refused to respond _tq a subpoena, Wasn't said whether he will honor Iho federal court order He was rcsubpocnacd along with who refused to live registrars testify. The governor's office disclosed today that R E Cook, chairman of the Board of Registrars in Wil- / cox County, has sent Iji his resig-' nation iM'acon Counly 'Regislrars E. P.

Refusal to o'bey the supoenas could bring contempt citations and possible penalties of imprisonment or fines. This would bo at the court's decision. A promise of "vigorous opposition" to the court orders came Jrorn Alabama Atty, Gen.

It included the Berlin situation but 'ruled out discussion of German reunification. The statement from (he official t1.cws agency Tass rilso warned that any Western use of force to rhainutin access to Berlin would be. 1 niO|l by Soviet force and would touch off a nuclcnr war. Some Western official." have iprpposed that iBcrlln !be discussed o'njiy in connection with the entire Gcrh'ian unification problem. Tass- rl-nowecl the K r e m 1 i n stand agirtnst negotiating on reunification and also rejected again the :Wtslern demand for all-German Irijo elections. pic Soviet Union repealed, how- ewr, ils readiness to talk about a fWorld War II peace treaty for Goi'msny, Tass added that the iSbviot Union stands for a' meet; Jng of the heads -of slate, on tho 'condition that East and West, are equally represented, with the aim •pfj "discussing ripened questions of' consequence (toward) casing international tension ..." The Communists contend thai .German unification should be negotiated by the East and West German governments, meeting ns equals. .Preliminary negotiations for a Isii.rnmit conference broke down last June when the Kremlin published secret minutes of meetings in (Moscow, The West was insisting on searching talks at a lower level to insure likelihood of agreement before, the heads of governments gathered. The Soviet Union* wanted to get the government cbipfs ,to ,do the actual trading. The West ^Iso had insisted on restricting' any summit conference to ?-the •-United Stales, Bi'Hain, France and the Soviet Union, 'with possibly a few neutrals. It had rj- >jec,ted Soviet efforts to include such small Communist nations as , apd Czechoslovakia tui 1 equality. " " ' The statement reiterated thai the Soviet Union will transfer its occupation powers to the East Germans in six months regardless of whether the West accepts Premier Khrushchev's proposal to make west Berlin an unarmed free cily. * Uiief of Ihesc powers is control of the . Western Allies' supply aoutes lo their garrisons in West Berlin. To talk of Allied counteraction against any new Communist blockade, Tass asked; "Is it not clear that ,Tiiy attempt to ibreak into Berlin by force would mean an attack on the (A Communist) German Democratic Republic and also its Warsaw Pact allies?" (.The Warsaw Pact js Ihu military alliance of ihe Soviet Union and its East European bloc,) In Washington, Stute Department oflk'ials said the Tass slaU- mcmt looked like a propaganda broad?jdo, They said again that thy United States will not be do^ terred by threats Irom defending ils rights in Berlin.
