Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tutldiy, February 18, 1975 News analysis Detente issue divides Kremlin By WILLIAM L. RYAN The Soviet Communist par- ty has started a massive propaganda campaign keyed to the anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and the tone suggests continuing sharp debate in the Kremlin about the policy of detente with the United States. The policy apparently will be continued and the Soviet party chief, Leonid Brezhnev, evidently still looks forward to another visit to Washington to talk about the benefits of collaboration. But the pronouncements on the 30th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany provoke suspi- cion that the party's leadership is being watched by the hawks, lest detente go too far or surrender too much. The campaign keynote for what will be three months of highly publicized preparation for the anniversary was sounded in the Soviet media Feb. 9. A spate of articles and statements will be forthcom- ing regularly now, on Kremlin orders. The pronouncements leave a strong impression that the Kremlin speaks of detente with two voices, one for the Communists and the other for the West. For Communist consump- tion the tone is militant and even militaristic-sounding. There is a note reminiscent of some of the cold war days. For the West there are words like those of President Nikolai Podgprny on Wednesday, but even his statement raises some doubts. Podgorny said the Soviet Union is "prepared to take new practical steps" to make the detente "irreversible." The Communist party's state- ment of several thousand words Sunday also said the process should be "irrever- but in the same paragraph it warned that "it is impossible to forget that the nature of imperialism has not changed, that the forces of re- action and aggression have not laid down their arms" but still try to carry out "ideological subversion" against the Communist camp. Thus, says the party, while the detente policy goes forward, the regime must show "ceaseless concern aboiit strengthening the defence might of the Soviet motherland, train Soviet peo- ple in the spirit of high vigil- ance and do everything so that the peaceful labor and securi- ty of the country" will be guaranteed. That "vigilance" line has an ominously familiar ring. was a useful slogan in other times to generate suspicion of the West and also to deflect attention from the Kremlin in times of political uncertainty. Taken all together, the opening barrage of the cam- paign Feb. 9, a follow-up in the party newspaper, Pravda, editorial Feb. 10 and Podgor- ny's statement Feb. 12 make it appear possible that the military complex and the political hawks had decided to police the detente with respect to guarding the military's share of the Soviet budget and satisfying the old- liners' eagerness to take all possible advantage of current economic turmoil in the West. The party decreed a five- day celebration, May 5-9, of the victory anniversary. "All major media it said, "must systematically publish and broadcast materials connected with the 30th anni- versary of victory." All mass labor, party and military organizations are ordered into these preparations. The party statement recall- ed the 1945 days, and said the Soviets alone had any part in the victory. The Pravda editorial was along similar lines. Former CIA security chief testifies to commission WASHINGTON (AP) Howard Osborn for 10 years headed the CIA's security of- fice, the unit that straddled the thin gray line separating the CIA's legitimate domestic activities from what critics claim are illegal operations. Responsible for guarding against leaks of classified in- formation and protecting agency installations, the security office directed break- ins at the homes of CIA employees and infiltrated radical groups in the United States, CIA Director William Colby has said. What role Osborn perform- ed in these operations is un- known. Osborn, 57, testified Monday before a closed ses- sion of the Rockefeller com- mission which is looking into the CIA's domestic activities. Osborn's 27-year CIA career ended with the controversy over the so-called Pennington affair involving one of his former subordinates, con-' victed Watergate burglar James McCord. Senator Howard Baker's in- vestigation of CIA involve- ment in Watergate disclosed that Lee Pennington, an agency operative, was sent to McCord's home shortly after the June 1972 break-in at Democratic headquarters and witnessed the destruction of documents linking the Watergate burglar to the agency. The Baker report says Osborn attempted to cover up the affair by ordering the Pen- nington materials removed from CIA files on Watergate when they were about to be reviewed by the agency's inspector general in connec- tion with furnishing material to congressional committees. When the Pennington affair was revealed, Osborn went on extended sick leave which be- gan in March, 1974, and lasted until his official retirement in December. Colby has said that "begin- ning in 1967, the CIA's office of security, acting on the basis of concern for the safety of agency installations in the Washington area, inserted 10 agents into dissident organizations to gather in- formation relating to plans for demonstrations, pickets, protests or break-ins." The program ended in December, 1968, Colby said. Another operation under Os- born's security office involved "surreptitious entry" at the residences and offices of agency employees or ex- employees suspected of security violations, Colby has said. It was recently revealed that in 1972 police in suburban Fairfax County, Va., supplied the office of security with police badges and identifica- tion cards for use in an opera- tion involving leaks of classified information. Osborn's office also con- ducted physical surveillance against the agency's own employees suspected of leak- ing secrets, Colby has said. Osborn, like many other senior CIA officials, began his intelligence work during the World War. Before becoming head of security, Osborn was involved in clandestine operations that sources say included the "bringing over" of a Soviet defector known by the code name Ladle, one of the agen- cy's biggest triumphs. Aussies let MP stay Food firm giving away million in frozen food FLORENCEVILLE, N.B. (CP) McCain's Foods Ltd. is giving away frozen prepared foods with a retail value of because a fire left their containers with a slight smoke odor. A statement released by McCain's Monday night said the 5-million pounds of food in packages include mostly trench fries and pies. The rest consists of vegetables and pizzas. The statement said dis- tribution, by refrigerated trucks and at an estimated cost to the firm of will be in the Atlantic provinces, Ontario and Quebec. The firm is using church groups, government agencies and social service organizations. The bulk of the food is going to families and the remainder to institutions. The company began giving away the food last week, but the volume was not made pub- lic until Monday. The fire was at a cold- storage facility in Florenceville. The- company said sampling and testing for quality had shown the food was totally unaffected. The statement said the proj- ect was initiated despite suggestions the food should be dumped because of possible effects on markets and problems in distribution. The decision to give away the food was made by the company's president, Wallace McCain, and board chairman Harrison McCain. The statement quotes Harri- son McCain as saying: "The company is determin- ed that the food will go to the needy, not the greedy, and has taken every possible step to ensure this." CANBERRA (Reuter) John Stonehouse, the runaway British member of Parliament, will be permitted to stay in Australia, at least for the present, Immigration Minister Clyde Cameron said today.

Podgorny, however, men- tioned the West's part in the defeat of Nazi Germany to point up the idea that battlefield collaboration may be carried over into conferenr? collaboration. But he ado is a cautious con- dition I there are consider- able forces in the world oppos- ing detente and stockpiling nu- clear weapons. That can mean the U.S., and it seems to echo the military argument that the Soviets, too, must stockpile. The party's statement noted with satisfaction that events since 1945 have led to "a deep- ening general crisis of capital- ism and the hastening of development of the world revolutionary process." The whole treatment of detente makes it seem that the policy, adopted several years ago with the concurrence of foreign Communist leaders, always was aimed primarily at hastening world revolution. Lately, Communist camp news media, including those of the Soviet Union, have taken little pains to conceal its happiness at the state of Western economies, their mounting problems and what Moscow seems to regard as glowing opportunities ahead for Western Communists.
