MOSCOW (Reuters) Lead- ers of the seven Warsaw pact countries hailed the new Soviet- West German non-aggression pact and said today it repre- sents a major step toward re- Maiisou Claims Jail [istreatment LOS ANGELES (AP) Charles M. Manson complained on the witness stand at the Sharon Tate murder trial today he has been mistreated county jail, but added: makes me stronger. I can't be discouraged." Manson, 35, leader of a hip- pie-type clan, is charged with mur'der-conspiracy in the case along with three girl disciples. He spoke in support of his mo- tion for a "cease-and-desisf order at a hearing in advance of the regular court session, with the jury absent. Manson told the judge he was subject several times daily to "shakedowns" in which sheriff's deputies made him disrobe, then probed his body. Some- times, he added, he was de- prived of pencils. The judge, after listening for 45 minutes, said it was time for regular testimony and ad- journed the hearing on the mo- tion. On Wednesday, state witness Linda Kasabian finished 18 days of testimony and the prosecu- tion began calling other rot- nesses. Mrs. Kasabian, at a news con- ference after she left the nit- ness stand, said: "I'd like to go into the wilderness with my children and get down to nature and closer to God."

Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia East Germany, Hungary, Po land, Romania and the Sovie Union made the declaration in a communique after their one-day summit in Moscow Thursday. The communique, publisher by the Soviet news agency Tass said the Bonn-Moscow talks anc the signing of the treaty nine days ago were "a major step on the road towards relaxation o the tension and normalization of tiie situation in Europe." The Kremlin's partners proved the new treaty slightly more than a week after West German Chancellor Willy Brandt flew to Moscow to sign the accord renouncing the use of force and respecting the in- violability of existing European frontiers. The five-hour meeting Thurs- day reviewed the non-aggres- sion treaty's implications for the Communist alliance and lat- est prospects for a European se- curity conference. The communique said the leaders "expressed firm inten- tion to take further steps aimed at strengthening Euro- pean security." It added they would take ac- tive measures "for implementa- tion in the nearest future of the proposal on convocation of an all-European security confer- ence which is enlisting ever wider support." A European conference to ful- fill Warsaw pact aims could serve to enhance East Ger- many's status and further con- solidate on a European scale the positions reached in bilat- eral negotiation between Bonn and Moscow. Observers said that East Ger- man party chief Walter TJlbricht who attended the summit, likely will seek further support among his allies for his campaign for full recognition of East Ger- many by the non-Communist world. First Zoomobile NEW YORK (AP) Mayor John V. Lindsay put the city's irst zoomobile on the road Thursday, It is intended to iring a look at the animal world o children in their own neigh- borhoods. In a joint communique as they wound up a 26-hour visit here, they also established fixed 12-mile maritime boundaries in the Gulf of Mexico and the Pa cific Ocean. A treaty will be drafted to be submitted for approval by the senates of both countries. During a Zfrhour meeting Thursday afternoon, Nixon also proposed certain new measures he said "would result in signifi- cant improvement" in the wa- ters received by Mexico from the' lower Colorado River. The issue involves salt content aris- ing from irrigation on the U.S. side. Further study and propos- als were called for. Nixon and Diaz Ordaz reaf- firmed their determination to suppress illicit international traffic in marijuana, narcotics and dangerous drugs. Thursday night, Diaz Ordaz had told reporters: "Two peo- ples married by geography should have no problems in de- lineating our borders." Since the end of the war be- tween Mexico and the United States in 1848, the constant shifting of the Rio Grande has generated endless squabbling by tutting small parcels of land 'irst in one country and then in he other. After the presidential an- nouncement, White House Press secretary Ronald Ziegler told reporters the two governments lad worked out a system of 'compensating factors" which would come into play whenever he river bed shifts. Details of the agreement were o be disclosed in a commu- nique later today. After a farewell luncheon oday for their hosts, the Nixons fly to the Western White House at San Clemente, Calif.

The plane's pilot, Capt. Rob- ert Hedgecock, never saw the man until Cuban officials hus- tled the hijacker off the plane and snatched the brown attache case in which he claimed he had an explosive device. Hedgecock, 40, of Atlanta, said his Delta Air Lines plane had just levelled off at 9 p.m. EDT, after takeoff from Atlanta to Savannah, Ga., when stew- ardess Judy James, 22, also of Atlanta, told him of the man with the bomb. Trudeau Ends Secret Visit CHARLOTTE AMALIE (AP) Prime Minister Trudeau of anada left on his official jet plane today after a secret visit to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Informants said he had spent his time at the Tektite II under- water research project at the nearby St. John Island. Trudeau is believed to have been in the Virgin Islands two or three days. Officials at the St. Thomas airport here refused to allow re- porters near the prime minister. They said he had given orders to keep lu's visit secret. The destination of Trudeau's plane was unknown here. But a spokesman at the San 'uan Flight service station in uerto Rico later said the plane (earing Trudeau was headed for recport, in the Bahamas. A Soviet government state ment carried by Tass new agency said study of plane parts recovered had established tha the Antonov transport aircraf had crashed. The four-engined Antonov-22 one of the world's largest air craft, was en route with r'elie supplies for earthquake victims in Peru when it went down over the North Atlantic. The statement said communi cation with the plane was los July 18. It went on: "As a result of the seard tarted by Soviet airplanes anc ships and also as a result of the study of discovered objects anc jarts, it was established that the airplane An-22 crashed. The neinbers of the crew ana hospi- :al staff 22 persons in perished." The flight was part of a huge earthquake-relief airlift by the Soviet Union to Peru. The miss- ing plane was one of two which refuelled at Keflavik airport in eel and July 18 before departing or Halifax. In the statement, the Soviet [overnment expressed thanks to he governments of Canada, the United States, Iceland, Den- nark and Norway for helping in the search. Eleven days after contact was ost, wreckage was found by a Russian trawler 300 miles south- vest of Iceland.

A selective immigration sys- tem started in 1967 is aimed at weeding out unskilled, unedu- cated applicants in their home country via a test. But Canada also has waived visa requirements for visitors who are here less than three months, created the appeal board, and given deportees the right to P appeal at public ex- This means anyone can come to Canada as a visitor, then seek landed status once here. If he is ordered deported, he may appeal at once, usually with the knowledge that it will be months and possibly years be- fore o definitive order is made. Because the board can quash an order on compassionate grounds, would-be immigrants who are appealing often marry quickly on arrival in Canada; Marriage and children born in this country naturally enhance their chances of staying. Easy access to social security cards and a job make the short-cut route even more at- tractive. The immigration appeal board was formed in late with seven members. It has nine now and there is talk of en- arging it. But a spokesman says this isn't the answer. The ward would have to be un- wieldy to really cut into the racklog. The board will divide into >anels of three this fall to hold learings in Toronto and Mont- real as well as Ottawa. "But if ve sat night and day, it would ake months to get up to a spokesman says. Czechs Ignore Anniversary Of 1968 Invasion PRAGUE (Reuters) planned boycott of stares died aborning today as Czechoslo- vaks largely ignored the second anniversary of the 19C8 Warsaw pact invasion of their country. Many stores that were nearly empty this morning, apparently iu response to a clandestine ap- peal for a protest boycott, filled up as the day wore on. Sales clerks said business was nor- mal. At noon, a likely time for a protest, Wenceslas Square in the centre of the city was hum- ming with its usual activity. Last year at noon, car horns were blown and traffic stopped to protest against restrictions of the country's freedom. Communist party officials will undoubtedly hail the absence of even passive protest today as a triumph for their policy of "nor- reform- ers from public life and ensur- ing political conformity under strict Communist control. The only known incidents in Prague involved three East Germans and two Italians, who were questioned by police today as they Wed to pay a tribute at the grave of Jan Palach, the student who burned himself to death in a protest suicide in January, The- East Germans, one of whom is a stopped by priest, also were police Thursday night as they tried to put flow- ers in front of (lie statue of King Wenceslas in Wenceslas Square. They said they had come to Czechoslovakia specially to mark the anniversary. Czechoslovaks appeared to be buying fewer newspapers than usual, in keeping with part of the clandestine appeal for a boycott of stores, movie houses, theatres and newspapers. But movie theatre box offices were doing a normal amount of busi- ness, and downtown restaurants were full, or almost so, during the lunch hour. Police continued to patrol the streets but were clearly breath- ing easier after the noon hour had passed. Police Protection Reduced For Foreign Diplomats Flights Checked CALGARY (CP) Two Air Canada flights were inter- rupted Thursday afternoon and he aircraft searched after an anonymous call indicated a was on board. A DC-8 charter from Europe was searched after1 it arrived at McCall Field but no bomb was found. A flight to London vhich originated in Vancouver vas also checked. NEW YORK (AP) Police protection for foreign govern- ment interests in New York is :o be cut nearly by half starting at midnight tonight. Police Commissioner Howard Leary announced Thursday that 50 of 106 patrolmen assigned to diplomatic posts would be with- drawn at that time and protec- :ion at 37 of 37 locations housing foreign interests would be elimi- nated. However, patrols outside the major United Nations missions and consulates are to be main- tained at present levels, he said in a statement. Under the revisions, the police department will discontinue as- signments to locations where foreign personnel lack diplo- matic immunity, he said, thus eliminating police guards at pri- vate buildings where foreign governments have-purely finan- cial or political interests. A spokesman for the Cana- dian consulate said the reduced security arrangements will not affect Canadian personnel work- ing in New York. He said the consulate has never had any regvlar system of police protection "except that afforded every citizen in New York." In recent weeks, off-duty po- licemen have picketed to protest assignment to fixed diplomatic posts, shopkeepers have com- plained that such duties were keeping patrolmen from walk- ing beats, and the city has un- successfully sought federal as- sistance in providing protection to foreign missions and consu- lates.
