Soviet Protest On Stonings Ignored by U.S. BERLIN CAP) - The Russians tried twice to protest stoning their military buses by West Berliners and were brushed off by Maj. Gen. Albert Watson II, the U.S. commandant in Berlin, a spokesman for the U.S. mission said today. He said the Soviet deputy commandant, Col. C. V. Tarasov, called on the mission headquarters Sunday and Monday night to protest the stonings by West Berliners angered by the fatal wounding of an East German refugee by East Berlin border guards. "On his second call, the Soviet officer was told that Gen. Watson was not available to meet him," the spokesman said. Soviet buses, taking replacements to guard the Soviet war memorial in West Berlin, have been attacked with rocks by West Berlin youths four times since Aug. 13, the day of the first anniversary of the Red wall dividing Berlin. Watson today received West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt. They were understood to have discussed the demonstrations on the wall by West Berliners which have grown more violent every day. West Berlin informants hinted that Watson is angry about the frequent stoning of the Soviet bus and apparent police inability to protect it against youthful rioters. These sources said Watson is demanding lhat the West Berlin administration take all necessary precautionary measures to prevent the rock hurling. The stonings have occurred in the U.S. sector of Berlin for which Watson, as top representative of the occupying power, has ultimate jurisdiction.
