The study said the soviet relations with the other members have not grown notably smoother since the departure of Nikita Khrushchev from Kremlin leadership. Moscow has said on a number of occasions recently the pact would be strengthened or reorganized. Moscow made these statements especially on context with its warnings to the West against giving West Germany a say in Allied nuclear strategy. The Institute s study made by soviet expert Thomas w. Wolfe suggested there Are two main trends at work within the pact one pulling toward closer military integration and interdependence the other pulling toward assertion of separate National interests and a new balance of decision making Power Amone the members. A though it would be unrealistic to expect the soviet Union to surrender her dominant role in pact affairs Quot the study said a the evidence suggests that the Warsaw pact May be evolving into a More conventional sort of Alliance where decisions will be subject in a greater degree than hitherto to the interplay of coalition the armed forces of the pact amount to about i million men organized in 60 divisions which were largely equipped by Russia. A russian commander Heads the defense alignment. Two years ago Russia started supplying potential nuclear delivery systems to the East european countries in the form of tactical missiles with ranges of up to 150 Miles. But the nuclear warheads for these weapons presumably remain under soviet control. I Sia helps american publishers Washington up a the . Information Agency Usia is quietly spending $65,000 this year As an a incentive Quot for private unlabelled publication of books on the american Way of life. Some have viewed this system As a government subsidy of books the United states wants to ship overseas without putting its own name on them. Usia maintains the practice is perfectly proper and Lias been permitted for a decade by Congress and the general accounting office which oversees Federal spending. The latest example of How the system works was confirmed today by a Usia spokesman. He said the Agency has contracted to pay $24,000 to a Washington publishing House to buy 4,300 copies each of six books being published by the firm. Usia sends the books overseas to be used by teachers and students. The books Are also for Sale in this country through regular commercial bookstores.

Up emotions play Strong role in Panama treaty negotiations by Phil Newsom up foreign news analyst since last september the United states and Panama quietly have been negotiating terms of a new Panama canal treaty. At the same time the United states has been examining Sites for a new sea level canal. Unfortunately emotions and the volatile nature of panamanian politics Are playing almost As important a role As sober reasoning. For the panamanian living along fourth of july Avenue dividing the .-Contr oiled zone from Panama City proper the trim Laws and the manicured shrubbery of the zone provide Sharp contrast to his own frequently Dingy surroundings and a constant reminder of a North american urged on by leftist agitators he and others like him reacted violently in december 1964, to enforce demands that the panamanian Flag Fly beside the american inside the zone. Those four frightening Days hastened the Day of negotiations to replace the old treaty signed in 1903, but did nothing to ease them. The american controlled canal is the overriding Issue of Panama a political life the favorite Scapegoat of politicians who use it to turn attention away from social and economic ills having nothing to do with the canal itself. Arrayed in bitter opposition Are Panama s president Marco Aurelio Robles who governs with a six party coalition and a Man who earlier served twice As president Arnulfo Arias. Arias charges that Robles won office by fraud. Arias has said he would accept a Robles negotiated trea Eaty if it were a very very very Good and if they gave us a Little piece of new York along with the for suspicious and nationalistic panamanians it is a Good position to take. Panama a terms for a new agreement already Are stiff. The United states currently pays Panama an annuity of $1.9 million for the canal zone. Panama also is estimated to Benefit by As much As $100 million in wages and purchases. For the future Panama is demanding both an increase in canal toll rates and participation in the profits. She also would a abolish the canal zone and take full sovereignty to herself Over the 50-mile strip which flanks the canal for five Miles on both sides. A eliminate a . Police Force school and Hospital system and with it the privileged zonal society. A limit the use of . Military bases exclusively to defense of the canal. This would eliminate two schools for latin american military personnel and extensive Jungle Harriman asks red Cross help in prisoner Exchange Geneva up presidential envoy w. Averell Harriman met with International red Cross officials today to ask for help in securing an Exchange of american prisoners of War in Viet Nam. Harriman began talks this morning with Samuel a. Gonard president of the private All Swiss committee on the possibility of using the International Aid organization As a go Between if the communists agree. Gonard greeted the Veteran american official with a smile and a handshake outside red Cross Headquarters and then took Harriman to his office. So far the Viet Cong and communist North vietnamese have rebuffed attempts by both the United states and the red Cross to ensure that american and South vietnamese prisoners be treated according to the 1949 Geneva War conventions. These conventions allow for each Side to Supply prisoner lists permit red Cross inspection of pow Camps and permit the Exchange of mail Between prisoners and their families. Although the United states and South Viet Nam have complied with these regulations North Viet Nam which adopted the conventions in 1957, has refused to abide by them. The Viet Cong also have rejected the Geneva agreements. American officials specifically Are talking about an Exchange involving the . Prisoners. The United states lists 33 military personnel known to be detained by the communists in South or North Viet Nam. But there Are another 149 servicemen listed As missing Many of whom Are believed to be communist pos. Training facilities important in the readying of . Forces for Viet Nam. Most sensitive Point in the negotiations is the location of the new sea level canal. Panamanians regard any discussion of Sites in Colombia or Nicaragua simply As a smokescreen to improve the . Bargaining position. In the end they expect the present canal to be dredged out and its obsolete system of locks eliminated. To locate a new canal anywhere else they say not Only would be costly to the United states but also would wreck the Economy of Panama City.
