Stable Europe Kremlin goal MOSCOW (Reuter) For Kremlin and Uw world, 1972 Jiokto promise of foreign policy developments as startling at any last year. Soviet leaders in plaining tlie year ahead still face a long struggle to hold their own as the focal point of Communist Influ- ence against their arch rival- China. The Soviet Union ended 1971 with what appears to be a major diplomatic supporting India in its clash with Pakistan over the forma- tion of breakaway Bangladesh. Both China and the U.S. backed the loser-Pakistan. The coming year, however, still presents thorny diplomatic problems. With President Richard Nixon about to visit Peking in Febru- ary and Moscow in May, tbe Kremlin will have to work hard to ensure that the United States does not play on Soviet differ- ences with the Chinese leader- ship. Meanwhile, Soviet talks with the U.S. begun in 1969 on ways Bangladesh foreign policy to follow moderate line DACCA (Eeuter) Prime Minister Sheik Mujibur Rahman of Bangladesh intends to pursue a moderate line in foreign pol- icy, judging from his statements at his first news conference since returning home to Dacca. Rahman made it clear here that his government is willing to accept aid anywhere, including the United States, despite pre- vious Indications from some of his ministers that U.S. 'aid would be acceptable only through international organiza- tions. Mujib, who took over power as prime minister of the newly- created state Wednesday, said: "I will accept anything, any- body gives me to save my peo- ple. Without conditions, of course." His remark, in reply to ques- tions, that he had "some resent- ment" about American policy towards Bangladesh was seen here as mild in the circum- stances, considering the virulent attacks on the U.S. in India. Also considered of some sig- nificance was the insertion in his prepared statement of a phrase thanking the American people for their support. WANTS TO GET ALONG At the same paid public tribute to the backing given by the Soviet Union and said he hopes to have good rela- tions with China. Observers said he appeared to be chiding Peking for joining West Pakistan when he "noted that the Chinese also had at- tained freedom by armed strug- gle against "warlords, and feu- dal and colonial exploiters." Mujib, considered a practical politician, apparently realizes that the bulk of the much- needed external assistance could come from the U.S. if he shows a willingness to accept it. But on the question of any future ties with Pakistan he was adamant that there would be none. "The question of joining West Pakistan does not he said, adding that Bangladesh is a fully and indepen- dent nation. He indicated that Bangladesh would seek membership in the Commonwealth.

IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE to curb the strategic arms race continue at a slow pace, some- times giving the impression of being entirely Independent of the general course of Interna- tional events. The fact that Washington and Moscow can however, discuss such vital issues as their na- tional security is a measure of the wary trust between (East and West built up painfully since fte Second World War. This atmosphere also contrib- uted to the agreement reached between the U.S., Russia, Brit- ain and Frame last year on Berlin, providing easier access to the East for West Berliners. Moscow now hopes to crown this in 1972 with an all-Euro- pean conference to improve the general .atmosphere of detente in the region. Other Soviet proposals for in- ternational gatherings such as a world disarmament conference or a conference of the five nu- clear Big Four and not fared so well and China is more responsible for this than any other power. Suggestions that Russia wants the all-European conference to assure its rear by a stable Eu- rope in case of a flare-up with China are rejected by officials In Moscow. But there is no denying that a stable situation in Europe- nearer realization than 16 years release much of Russia's defence capacity. MIDEAST PROBLEMS TOO Apart from China, Moscow also faces great problems in the Middle East. An Egyptian alliance with Li- leader Col. Muam- mar Gaddafi is outspokenly Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's sup- port for me suppression last year of a Communist-backed coup in Sudan caused anxiety in Moscow. The Soviet Union has persis- tently urged a political settle- ment of the Middle East conflict and there is no reflection of the beligerent tone of the Egyptian leaders against Israel. Ostensibly the rivals in the Middle East are the U.S. and the Soviet Union. But China takes an active interest, even evoking Soviet charges that Pe- king is planning collusion with Israel. Senator Edward M. Kennedy, (Dem. Mass) said in Boston that he will not go to Lire Dem- ocratic national convention in Miami this summer as a dele- gate. Kennedy Bali at a meeting witti the state Muse- press as- sociation that he "won't run as SENATOR KENNEDY won't run an at-large or district candi- date" for a spot as a delegate in the April 25 Massachusetts presidential primary. It had been expected that Kennedy would head the at- large slate from Massachusetts. Kennedy reiterated that he will not endorse a Democratic candidate prior to the conven- tion, but he said he will support the convention's nominee. Out of the entire field, Ken- nedy said, Gov. George Wallace of Alabama was the only one that be clearly could not sup- port. Baby Trudcau will get an honorary membership in the Ottawa YM-YWCA. The membership will be pre- sented to Prime Minister Tru- deau Wednesday as part of Y week celebrations across Can- ada. The prime minister will be presented at the same time with a jogging suit inscribed with the theme of Y week, "People Helping Change Happen." The honorary membership for the 20-day-old Justin is part of the Vs campaign to interest families in die various pro- grams. Maurice Chevalier, in mat ing a widow the chief benefi- ciary of his estate, was acting in [avor of the woman's handi- capped seven-year-old daugh- ter, the entertainer's former secretary said in Paris. Long time secretary Felix Pacquet said the daughter of 40-year-old former actress Odette Melier, sutlers from a rare illness that pre- vented her from speaking nor- mally. Chevalier was married once to singer Yvonne Valle but be had no children of his own. Mrs. Melier was namsd as chief ben- eficiary of the entertainer's es- tate. Mayor Sam Yorty of Los An- geles said that Senator Robert F. Kennedy would not have been assassinated in 1968 if he had allowed Los Angeles police to protect him. "If he'd only let us protect the mayor said, "it wouldn't have happened. It couldn't have happened." Mayor Yorty, one of a swell- ing field of candidates for tha Democratic nomination in the 1972 United States presidential election, was in Toronto to tape a television program1. Senator Kennedy was shot in Los Angeles just after winning the California primary in the 1968 race for the U.S. presi- dency. The mayor said the Los Ange- les police force was anxious to protect the senator but was told "he didn't want police around him." 10th Annual 1 CONTINUES G.E.
