RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN I OA An AP News Analysis Sundoy, July 18, 1965 Big Romanian Parley This Week to Put Stress on Independent Role By Hans Benedict VIENNA, Austria —(JP) — The Fourth Congress of Romania's Communist Party opens this week on a note of growing independence that points up Moscow's weakening grip on the Soviet bloc. A new national constitution and a rewritten party statute, to be adopted during the five-day congress, virtually refute Soviet claims to countries on the basis of friendship and brotherly cooperation." Changing Times Designed to replace the first Communist constitution adopted in 1952 during the era of Stalinist domination the draft stresses the need for close ties with "countries of different social and political order" — namely, the West.

The draft constitution omits any reference to the neighboring Soviet Union. In one of its 116 articles, the constitution sets forth Romania's future relationships with "other socialist tional independence, equality, mutual benefit and non-interference in internal affairs," the constitution reads. The party statute, approved by the party's central committee last month and published recently in the Ro- Letters Urge 'Hotfoot Sam' to Resume Sidewalk Show MILFORD, Del. — i/P) — "Please keep dancitig on the sidewalk—this world is too serious and needs all the cheering up it can get." This plea was one of many recently written from around the country to "Hotfoot Sam" —the sidewalk song-and- dance man of this tiny Delaware town ui-ging him to come out of self-imposed retirement. Hotfoot, whose real name is Charles Jackson, used to attach bottle caps to the bottom of his feet, put on a mul- Water on Barn Fire Too Good to Waste BLOOMFIED, N. J. — (^)— Drouth-conscious Bloomfield residents found a way to get around community water restrictions, and conserve water at the same time. While firemen were pouring water on a blaze in a storage barn, Friday, residents of the area formed bucket brigades. They scooped water out of the street and poured it on their parched Jawns and gardens. ti-coiored patch jacket, dust off his harmonica and perform on the streets for children who would flock around him [and for coins some spectators would throw. But some residents complained that Hotfoot was noisy or a bad influence on children. Police relayed the complaint to Hotfoot and he "retired" his bottle caps and harmonica. Now he's receiving letters from all parts of the country, urging him to resume his [musical sideline. "I just wish our children had the chance to see you dance," one woman from the Southwest wrote in a postscript to her husband's letter. A man from Portal, Ariz., said he should ignore the complainers. "Continue to do your dances," he wrote. "You will be remembered, especially by children, longer than they will remerhber the complainers." Hotfoot wasn't available for comment on his fan mail, but Mrs. Sara Smith, a secretary at the canning factory where he works, said it was unlikely he would be back dancing on the sidewalk. manian press, strikes a note of political autonomy. Unlike other East European parties which still adhere to a policy of Soviet leadership, the Romanians have bowed out of any commitments that might infringe on their new independent status. Tailoring Ideology The statute declares that the party, as the leading po- itical and social power, "bases its activities upon Marxist-Leninist teachings — implementing them in accordance with the specific conditions and characteristics of our country." Romania's position is a byproduct of the ideological feud between the Soviets and the Communist Chinese. It started with a chill in 1958 when then Premier Nikita Khrushchev tried to; press his allies into an economic integration scheme in COMECON, t h e fledgling Communist counterpart of Western Europe's Common Market. Seeing a threat to their rich natural resources, the Romanians balked at Khrushchev's scheme and demanded bilateral and multilateral economic agreements between COMECON members. That was in 1962. Chance for Breakaway When the Soviet - Chinese feud erupted into open split, the Romanians declared themselves neutral. In a manifesto published in April 1964, they claimed full equality with the Soviet Union. Khrushchev's successors, party chief Leonid Brezhnev and Premier Alexei Kosygin, apparently have resigned themselves to Romania's autonomous course. In an apparent effort to patch up differences, Brezh nev is heading a Soviet delegation to the congress which opens Monday. An impressive array of East European Communist leaders will attend the congress. Among them are Polish party chief Wladyslaw Gomulka and Walter Ulbricht, head of the East German party. The Red Chinese also are sending !a delegation.
