Page two courier Newt Blytheville , july,11,1977 eavesdropping safeguards aimed at soviets by James ger8tenzang Assoc lated press writer Washington a president Carter concerned about soviet eavesdropping on Telephone Calls in the United states will soon be Given several proposals to preserve the secrecy of classified communications. The president is expected to decide by the end of the summer How to protect such Calls one source said sunday. The problem stems from the relative ease with which the soviet Union is reportedly listening in electronically from properties it owns in Washington and elsewhere in the United states on Telephone Calls transmitted through the air by microwave. The Advent of advanced computers has simplified the process considerably because the equipment can quickly sort through the various Calls selecting particular information. It is a problem and we re trying to figure out what to do about it a one White House official said.

But the count for the opposition Paris improved in the returns from the big cities. By mid afternoon with 20 seats undecided the Liberal democrats had won 59 seats giving them a total of 120. The socialists had 21 for a total of 50 Komito 12 and 26 the communists 3 and 14 the democratic socialists 6 and la the new Liberal club i and 2, other minor parties 2. And independents 2 and 4.
