A military court gave the 31-year-old pilot a 10-year sentence for espionage but modified that by specifying only three years are to be spent in prison. The rest of the sentence is covered by "deprivation of liberty." That may mean assignment to a special col- ony with other prisoners, or possibly expulsion.

There was nothing of- icia! on this, but the feeling j_________ among some diplomats and cor- respondents in Moscow is that the Soviet Union at this stage has no special desire to keep Powers aft- er the excitement about him sub- sides.
