Soviet Commercial Exhibition -oves Mexican Relations Impn MEXICO CITY (AP) Af- ter five decades of roller coas- ter relations with Mexico, the Russians have opened a commercial exhibition here, with huge red trac- tors, Soviet-built cars and crew-cut specialists with thin .ties. President Luis Echeverria "inaugurated the exhibit, cele- brating 50 years of Soyiet- Mexican ties, and left with a handful of promises and an agreement to have Sovi- tractors tilling Aztec soil within a couple of years. None of the officials at the exhibit recalled the expulsion .of fiye Soviet diplomats in .1971 in connection with guer- illa actiyities in the country. The expulsion was the worst crisis between the two nations since relations were broken in 1930 by President Emilio Fortes Gil, who claimed there were spies in the Soviet em- bassy. The air apparently has fi- nally cleared. A Spaniard named Carmen, who liyes in Russia, guides visitors through the intricate problem of consumer market- ing in the Soviet Union.

She draws a picture of sun- filled days, happy children and Communist achievements. Everything at the exhibit shines. The car doors shut tight. Spectators arc dwarfed by huge industrial machinery. Cameras and microscopes arc sealed in glass cases. In the center is a replica of the Lunakhov lunar transmission station. "We don't need men on the a Soviet official says. "Our achievements are in ma- chine technology." On nearly every horizontal surface are stacks of litera- ture, slick magazines and leaflets. One official, weaving through the displays, said, "Our purpose is not to exploit. That's why we don't have fac- tories here. We offer excellent terms at very low interest to help developing countries." DRIVE SAFELY! Fall Casual and Sport Shoe SALE!
