Stale Department officials said today they are. si ill pressing for his release. The evidence that the near-boycott is pinching the C z e c h s ' p a i n f u l l y , plus other developments, has led to hopr for a break-in the case, The Prague regime has hinted it might consider freeing Oatis-now 38--although at a price the [State Department, has f i r m l y ruled out.
