Most East European nations operate multi language j sternal broadcasting stations j which are extremely critical I and sometimes hostile about the nterual affairs of Western na- tions, but these stations are the ifficial voices of the States in vhich they stand. The decision ibout RFE's future should he an American decision, in no vay involving other Western countries, and, it is said, if it s to continue it should do so as an unmistakably American ra- dio station based in the United States. The other possibility, which ihould be confronted by those vho deplore the threat to RFE md Radio Liberty in their presen form, is that the exter- nal broadcasting of Western us- Jonal stations should be stepped up as a substitute. There is something disingen- uous about lamenting the fate of RFE if the lamenter is not >reparcd to argue that his own country should provide extra money to bring the East Euro- Kan services of the BBC, the French ORTF or the West Ger- man Deutsche Welle up to a similar volume of program- ming. AH three are starved of funds, although their reputation 'or detachment especially that of the BBC external ser- vices is usually higher than that of the American or Amer- ican-financed stations. It is a condition of European security today, whether the Russians and Americans like it or not, that no Government may use either force or inflam- matory propaganda to foment a violent change of regime in an- other country. Within thai lim- itation, there is no reason why the radio stations of countries with different social systems should not describe and criti- cize each other's societies. There will always be protests; some Governments have thin- ner skins than others. But if obvious targets like the "inter- national" status of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty were removed, this would become a custom which both halves o!

Viking-built St. M a g n u s, known as the Westminster Abbey of the bleak Orkney Is- lands ofC Scotland's norttem tip, is not only an architec- tural treasure but B direct link with the era when the Norwegians ruled the region, Haakon IV, last of tJw Nor- wegian sea-kings, was laid out before the altar of the cathe- dral after he died here on his horns following defeat by the Scots in an invasion of the mainland in 12M. There is a tradition that the seven-year- old Staid of Norway, who died at sea in while on her way to be married to Prince Edward of England, was in- terred temporarily there. The Vikings wore still sail- Ing from Orkney harbors in spring and autumn raids on the adjacent British Isles wlien St. Magnus was founded as a Roman Catholic institu- tion. It was dedicated to a Norwegian holy man who was martyred, for reasons unclear now, on the Orkney isle of Egilsay. SKULL GASHED His bones. wit.h an axe wound in lhe skull, lie there. So do those of his nephew, Rognvald, built the origi- nal church as a shrine dedi- cated to Magnus. Rognvald had men quarry red and yellow standstone from the Orkney cliffs. He sent to Durham, 300 miles away, for masons who created polychrome effects that to this oay glow with warmth aijd light on a summer evening. After belonging to Norway for aboirt six centuries, the Orkneys were ceded to Scot- land in 1463 and the cathedral became the private property of Scottish King James ITT.
