A valuable point was his understanding of the might and strength of our country." H 11 1 Soviet commentator Yakov Victorov charged Nixon dodged the question of American bases encircling the Soviet Union. Defensive Purposes In his address Nixon said the bases were for defensive not aggressive purposes and would be removed whenever the United States and its allies no longer felt threatened.

Viktor- ov asked. "To be still more convincing, Nixoo even tries to delve into the past, distorting Soviet foreign policy and the history of its development. But what did history say, now that Nixon has been ablo to convince himself of the love of peace of the Soviet Union? "No Answer" "How is one then to explain the establishment of American atom and rocket installations in other countries at a maximum proximity to the Soviet Union? "He has no answer to that question, nor could he have." Viktorov's commentary was made in a Swedish-languago broadcast from Moscow. There was no indication whether his remarks had been put out to Soviet listeners. Two and n half hours after Nixon's address Radio Mos« cow's domestic news bulletin had nothing to say about Nix* on's TV appearance. Later, however, Moscow began stepping up its distribution of Viktorov's comment on the Nixon speech. Soon after the Swedish-language commentary was heard, Radio Moscow began putting it out on its German and Italian services. For Italian listeners, Radio Moscow elaborated and developed its criticism of the Nixon speech. Disarmament Deadlock It charged Nixon had purposely avoided mentioning the 'constant efforts" of the Soviet Union to end the deadlock over disarmament. Nixon said in his speech he was disappointed by the statement of a Soviet worker whom he had met that the worker did not believe that America was really for peace. "Mr. Nixon also said that he was disappointed by the fact that among the Soviets the point of view was widespread that the U.S. says much about peace but does little for it;" the radio said. "It is certainly understandable that Nixon should have been disappointed. To hear such things is not pleasant, especially in view of the fact that it is not only difficult but impossible to refute them," "Peaceful Coexistence" With a touch of sarcasm, the broadcast went on: "Mr. Nixon declared that he is not against the victory of (Turn to Page 2, Col. 1) Racine Area WEATHER Sunday, AUK- 1. 1I>S> Fair and wanner today and Monday.
