Barzel did not define the issue but he had been questionedabout the unification ol Ger- many and access to Berlin.Speaking through an inter- preter, he called Berlin negotia-tions "a test case" for East- West detente.

From the airlines' point ofview, reducing rates drastically would cut the ground out from under their charter line competi-tors and introduce a vast new market to regular airline travel,the spokesman said. Pierre Marion, an Air Francevice president, told a news con- ference that the French nationalairline would propose a $198 round trip Paris-New York ticket for young people at theInternational Air Transport As- sociation conference. The cur-rent high-season fare is $554. Such a ticket would be good all year round for young peoplefrom 12 to 22 and to students 25 years old or less."We have very high hopes this project will come through," hesaid, "I don't know of any com- pany that is clearly opposed to it, although others havetions that differ in details." Air France will also propose a40 per cent reduction to young people on all nights within Eur-ope, but on a seats-avail able basts. The reduction would be 25per cent if seats were reserved. The airline will also askfor special low rates on tickets for young people between Partsand Bio de Janeiro, Paris and Tokyo and Paris and New Delhi.
