Moscow-Bonn pact in 1970. Any rivals for Brexlmev's present position of party leader- ship would probably derive en- couragement from a setback to his initiative towards Brandt. POLKS ANXIOUS At the same time, many Poles would be unnerved, anxious as they have been to achieve the guaran t ees for I heir western frontier enshrined in tho Lreaty witb Warsaw currently up for parliamentary ratification i n Bonn. Moreover, the Soviets say the agreement on Berlin they reached last year with tho "United States. Britain find France depends for its imple- mentation on ratification of tlio Moscow-Bonn pact. This involvement of Berlin's future in the controversy over the Russian-West German 249 votes in the- lower house enough for an absolute majority liis ratification measures. But. this figure is also tho sum total of his coalition govern- merit's voting strength in the lower house ordinary occasions. If any government supporter rebels against ratification in June or even at a preliminary showdown in May, then the as- j sumption is that the choncellor j will call an election. Vet indications are that Brandt has the backing of most West Germans for his osi.poUtik. The opposition Christian Dem- ocrats therefore will likely try to concentrate much of their anti-government attack on eco- nomic issues rather than be lured into a fight solely over the j Eastern question. i In any case, tlw coining' events are certain to be a se-1 vere test for Brandt as a politi-' cal tactician following the rec- j ognition he received from Nobel committee as L world statesman.
