Rusk, heading a 33-man delega- tion, took off from Andrews Air Force Base aboard a military jet liner.

By LOYAL GOULD LEIPZIG, East Germany (AP) pall of despair has intensi- fied in East Germany in Ihe seven months since the Communists built their wall across Berlin, to keep East Germans from fleeing to the West. This reporter, permitted to visit East Germany for Leipzig's spring trade fair, found gray mo- notony and in some cases hope- lessness. A dreary conformity showed through the atmosphere of festivity temporarily created during the fair. A visiting Briton compared the material conditions with those p( wartime England. But he said the people's spirit was a far cry from that of his countrymen. Leipzigers in conversations ex- pressed fear that Walter Ulbricht, East Germany's top Communal; has entrenched his position !n the last few months. They see little hope of a letup in the daily pres- iations that we've been in for a ong, long time." It is important, he said, because this arms race is threatening lo piral to new heights of unman- geabilily." A disarmament ac- :ord, Rusk said, would be "not inly in the interest of (he safety if this country but also of all mankind." If Gromyko -indicates willing- ness to settle the Berlirfproblern on terms .flic West might accept, informants said, Rusk is prepared !o offer somewhat revised ver- sions of past Western proposals. These reportedly involve a pos- sible interim settlement of the Berlin, issue and agreement on Central European security. De- ails were not revealed but were said to have been worked out in advance in Washington with the British and French. On disarmament Rusk was pre- pared to lay before the full con- 'erence the general U.S. program aimed at achieving complete, con- rolled disarmament by stages. Within -the over-all plan are long- range and first-slop proposals for arms cuts designed to set varying degrees o! progress by Ihe nego- tiators. A related proposal is the U.S.- British'draft'treaty for a nuclear lest ban, rejected by the Russians last year because of its inlema tional control provisions. U.S. of ficials figured (he issue could be taken up by a special U.S.-British Soviet subcommitlce al the con ference. Rusk intends to bring up [he subject with Gromyko after re viewing it with Home. Lingering differences remain between (he British, who lean toward easing sure to conform to his concepts of communism. Ulbricht is regarded as a Stalin- ist whose repressive measures lave not eased despite changes n some other Communist coun- tries.
