The committee is one dealing with a convention on the preserva tion of. mankind's cultural herit- age in case of war. United Nations Educational, Sci- entific and Cultural Organization- sponsored the international con- vention. On a motion by the French dele- gate, Louis-Philippe May, the committee voted 18-11 Monday that observers from nonsignatory When it comes to the matter of tax reduction, never was so little waited for by so many for so long. (Copr. Gen. Fea. Corp.) countries can attend its sessions only if invited by UNESCO's act- ing secretary-general following ap- proval, by the UNESCO executive board. The Red bloc .is heavily outnumbered in the 24-man board. The effect of this was to nul- lify a previous committee decision to drop restrictions on the na- tionality .of observers. The com- mittee's original' ground rules limited observers to countries which are already members of the U.N. or UNESCO. The com- mittee last week removed the limitation an action which; as U.S. observer Max Isenbergh jointed allow even the Red Chinese to send an observer. The issue popped up again in message from Communist vTorth Viet Nam asking the com- mittee to admit its .-commercial representative in Paris as an ob- server. Approval would have set a precedent for the admission of a Red Chinese observer since North Viet Nam, like Red China, s not a U.N. -member. and the engineers had accepted at different the general plan for a settlemenl on the crew makeup point. Consent Needed The airline said the assent oi Eastern's pilots was needed be- fore the cockpit job plan could be accepted. It also objected to in. eluding .payroll retroactivity in proposed arbitration of economic issues. In accepting Goldberg's plan the flight engineers made it. clear they want retroactivity included in the arbitration of pay and other economic issues just as the labor secretary proposed. Suit Looms The engineers announced plans to file suit later today in 'the .'U.S. District Court in New York'to. en- join-Eastern against making; of- fers to individual engineers and against changing- .engineers' quali fications without negotiating the changes with the union, as the engineers said is required- by law. The deadline set by Eastern for the strikers- to claim their jobs on an individual basis or face discharge came up today. The airline resumed limited operations' Monday and said it would continue the same sched- ule flights each way between New York and Miami, Fla.

The survey will extend over a two-year period, representing a total cost of some Of total cost, Ada will pay per cent, not to exceed and the remainder will be borne by the state via the federal government. The study will include such work as origin and destination studies, traffic flow, traffic in and out of town, residential and business parking, roads and road use, traf- fic control and signals and will projected out as far as 1980. The department also' agreed to present before July 1, 1963 a re- port on traffic signals and con- sols in Ada.

Dear Nikita: People In Berlin Don't Believe You EDITOR'S NOTE- Paul Miller, president of the Gannett Newspa- pers, and Walker Stone, editor-in- chief of the Scripps-Howard News- papers, have been close friends from college days in Oklahoma, 35 years ago, and professional rivals since. Together with other representatives of the American Society of Newspaper Editors they interviewed Premier Khrushchev in Moscow on July 13. And, to- gether, they went to Berlin this week and joined in this letter to Premier Khrushchev. BERLIN open .letter from Berlin, July 24, 1962, to: His Excellency, Nikita S. Khrushchev Chairman, Council of Ministers Moscow, U.S.S.R.. Dear Mr. Chairman: A little more than .a week..ago, with a group of 10 other .American newspapermen, we sat with-you in the Kremlin and .listened at- tentively toyour how to solve the problem of Berlin in a way which you believed ,'would contribute to the' happiness and security of the German people and ease the tensions between the U.S.S.R. and the .United States and its allies. Neither of us Had been in Berlin for several years. We did not know how Berliners felt. So, on coming here after leaving the cor- dial hospitality of the Soviet Un- ion, it seemed'logical to ask the people- of. Berlin, both East and West, whether they .agreed with your ideas and welcomed your proposals: This is a. report to you, ourlxist in as" well as to our newspaper readers in; America, on what we .saw. .First, let it be; emphasized that we. did not talk with Mayor Willy Brandt nor any officials of West Berlin. Nor did we talk with Herr Ulhricht or any. officials of .East Berlin or East Germany. But -for the better part of two days we roamed'.the streets of both Wes_t and East- Berlin, ranging both sides of the wall that has been erected to divide this great city, and talked with Germans willing to talk. .Using several -different .inter- preters, we talked'with -people of such varied occupations .as man- ual workers, clerks, students, law- yers, secretaries, businessmen, border housewives arid of course taxi drivers who seem to be- the common denom- inator of public opinion. in all countries whatever the social sys- tem. For these conversations we took along the "-official Soviet Union transcript of our Kremlin inter- view on July 13, and we read from that --document' the .state- ments and suggestions you made. We .told these people, that we believe an your ideas and proposals can be expressed this way: V 1. The last vestiges of the- war should be wiped-out by a peace treaty. .2. The' Soviet'Union 'proposes to sign such a-'treaty, with" the gov- ernment of-East Germany and you are hopeful that it will be signed or acquiesced to by the United States, Great Britain and -France. 3. Such a -treaty should estab- lish what is now known as-West Berlin as .what you call a "free city." 'Such a solution in your view, include .the. withdrawal of U.S., U.K. and French troops from West Berlin. .5. .Tie people of Berlin would then fed'more 'secure, more con- fident of the future, and be hap- pier. .'-.-6. this occurs, West Berlin on the vine." Mr. Chairman, we hope you will Tse interested in the opinions of the people with whom we talked. We were. In America, actions of govern- ments are dictated by judgments of the people. When we read your statement that the Germans of Berlin would be "much more at ease" and enjoy "prospects for further de- velopment" if a peace treaty were sigced and Western troops with- drawn, we could -hardly finish before the person being inter- viewed would exclaim "nein." This means the same as the Russian "nyet" When we asked if they would sleep easier if Allied troops with- drew from Berlin, they said: "Nein. In 30 days Russia would gobble up Berlin." When we asked if a peace treaty would.reassure them, a West Ber- lin policeman at. the wall said, 'You Americans of all people should know how little is the meaning of such promises." Berliners, with, the bitter first- hand experience of two dictator- and hind: them are not fooled by propositions for a Soviet-style "peace." They say they can we for them- selves what this meani for their own relatives just a few blocks away in East Berlin. In their conversations with us they left no doubt that they fear same fate if the American soldiers and their allies quit the city. These are no longer "occupation" troops in the minds of the Berlin- ers with whom we. talked but rather "our protectors." We talked with a Lutheran nun, standing on the west side of the wall waving at a window a block away from which she hoped a friend on the east side was watch- ing. We talked with a middle-aged (Continued from
