predict what further action might be taken From their re marks it seemed unlikely that anything would be done Some acknowledged that the East Germans could cite their successful blocking of the ambu lance Saturday as a precedent for topping other Western military traffic in East Berlin But they pointed out that this had not hap pened yet They also pointed out that the East Germans could halt all West ern traffic unless the Allies gave it armed escort The Allies did that with some military vehicles last October when the East Ger mans beganstopping Allied cars The East Germans backed down after the Russians and the Amer icans each rushed tanks up to the wall Mayor Willy Brandts Socialist party said Soviet vehicles should San banned from West Berlin in Puerto Rico on Wednesday j retaliation

Walter Heller chairman of the Presidents Council of Economic advisers Walt W Rostow chairman US Policy Planning Council and Frank Deputy director Agency for International Development The conference is being sored by the Peace Corps with the cooperation of the Depart ments of State and Labor The administration hopes that itwill lead to the establishment of peace corps equivalents in other nations under either govern mental or private supervision The possibility of creating domestic corps groups with US aid under the Alliance for Pro gress has been greeted with particular enthusiasm by Latin American nations And the Republic of the Philippines is starting an Operation Brother hood which is much the same thing Vice President Johnson this summer discussed with the Shah of Iran establfshing a local peace corps operation The United States as the plan now stands would send abroad technicians who would teach local technicians Aow to estab lish and administer training programs The aim would

nations development can be attributed to capital in vestment and that more than half must be attributed to man power skills Even in this country at least 60 per cent of all specialized workers have ac quired their skills through on thejob training and through working up step by step to jobs requiring higher skills However many larger com panies such as General Motors maintain institutes at which training may be acquired either on a fulltime or parttime basis These institutes could provide useful laboratories for studying the teaching of skills Econ omists now estimate that a na tion wanting to maintain an economic growth rate of 5 per cent a year must its trained mechanics and other workers by 15 to 30 per cent action There was no indication how ever of any such Allied plans One reason apparently was reluc tance to rock the boat while talks on Berlin were still in progress in New York The Allies in their protest charged that interference with the ambulance was a violation of their warworn occupation rights in all of Berlin The Russians refusing to accept the protest gave their usual comment that the matter was one for East Germanys Com munist regime The Allies refuse to deal
