West German economics Mir Lster Ludwig Erhard claimed credit for the new proposal which he said he thought would end the deadlock with the United states. French finance minister Valery Giscard d Estwing said a it s for the americans to the full session of the 73-nation general agreement on tariffs and trades conference marked time while the common marketers and the americans cockeyed for position. Chairman Hans Schaffner of Switzerland called off an afternoon meeting but agreed to preside at a special evening session of the disputing sides.

In letter to red Premier area residents ask Nikita Compromise forty five Bennington area residents Are among too americans who have jointly written to soviet Premier Khrushchev asking him to accept seven on site inspections a year As a step toward facilitating a .-soviet nuclear test ban treaty. Irving Adler of North Bennington a signatory and unofficial spokesman for the group said that letters from individuals to Khrushchev have occasionally brought results. He attributed the soviets 1958 unilateral tests suspension to a letter from Corliss Lamont now an instructor at Columbia University.

Nelson a. Ito Gefeller when he returns from his honeymoon. What his private pollsters Tell him about the political effect of his marriage to Divorcee Margar Etta Fitler Murphy could have a direct bearing on whether the governor plunges into an Active drive for the 1964 Republican presidential nomination or merely coasts along awaiting developments. If the indications Are that his marriage has built up resistance to his nomination the governor can be expected to tread water for a while until a new canvass can be made this fall. If relatively Clear sailing is in Prospect he May step up his campaigning. Rockefeller is a great believer in polls. He also is a Man who plays his politics close to his Vest Seldom confiding his plans in Advance even to party allies. For example he told sen. Kenneth b. Keating r-n.y., Only 20 minutes before the ceremony that he was going to be married. Although Rockefeller has made All of the familiar motions of a candidate for the nomination his remarriage after being divorced last year by his wife of 31 years has injected a new element of doubt about his intentions. What Rockefeller s marriage has done to his prospects for the nomination and to his chances of beating president Kennedy if the governor should be the gop Standard bearer remain a subject of discussion and disagreement.

Durksen of Illinois who has adopted a Neutral stance on the Choice of a nominee said in a separate interview he thinks the whole matter will blow Over in a few weeks. See Rockfeller continued on Page 8 constitute espionage they might be persuaded to agree to seven so As to facilitate the treaty s ratification by the . Senate. Hence a major obstacle a although by no Means the Only one a to a test ban treaty is the difference Between three and seven inspections. The signatories feel that if the . Negotiators reduced their demands below seven there would be what Adler Calls Quot a real obstacle in the opposition of some senators to a test ban agreement which contains what they May feel Are too few inspections for safety. The spokesman conceded that the signatories Quot just Don t know if the letter will have any effect. He added that he Hopes More letters of this nature will be sent to Khrushchev. Test ban treaty negotiations have been stalled since the soviet Union raised the number of inspections it would accept from Zero to three and the . Reduced the number it would require from Twenty to seven.
