Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Moscow-Bonn summit Washing machines hetore politics By ROD CURRIE LONDON (CP) Remote as it may seem, the apparent suc- cess of the Soviet-West German summit meeting in Bon owes much to such things as Leonid Brezhnev's preoccupation over China and the shortage of wash- ing machines in Russia. From the outset of his official five-day visit, it was apparent that Brezhnev, Soviet party leader, was less interested in politics than in economic co-op- eration with the highly-industri- alzed West Germany. For his part, Chancellor Willy Brandt wanted hard and fast assurances on the status of Ber- lin. He got them, and the prom- of hefty export orders to the Soviet Union as a bonus. Chem- icals, nuclear energy, elec- tricity and minerals were all listed by the Russians as fields in which they also wanted West German technology, credits and co-operation. In talks with German indus- trialists, Brezhnev held out a vista of untold riches in Siberia and elsewhere just waiting for German-Soviet joint under- takings to develop them. BARGAINS CEMENTED After all the hard bargaining and back-slapping, the sub- stance of the 14-page commu- nique was that the West Ger- mans responded positively to sweeping Russian proposals to obtain German aid for ex- panding the Soviet economy -rapidly. In exchange, they have obtained Soviet assurance on tough point that occu- pied much of the closed-door bargaining. With the Watergate affair clouding the future of President Nixon, it seemed to many ob- servers that Brandt is increas- ingly emerging as the states- man best; placed to speak for Western countries as a whole on matters of East-West detente. He went into the meetings with Brezhnev well briefed, having recently conferred with Nixon in Washington and con- sulted with the British and French foreign ministers. He emerged with his personal reputation enhanced. Brandt flatly refused to en- dorse any joint statement un- less it included a Berlin clause. The formula worked out states that relaxation of tensions in Central Europe requires "strict adherence" and "full appli- cation' of the four-power agree- ment signed 11 months ago by the Soviet Union, Britain, France and the United States. It means that West German ties with West Berlin "will be main- tained and developed.' DOMESTIC ISSUES SEEN Brezhnev's preoccupation on trade, investment and tech- didn't even get around to meeting German Communist party leaders until the final day of the seen as a reflection of problems at home. Some observers have sug- gested he is anxious to reduce tensions in Europe to free mili- tary resources to guard against possible Chinese pressure in Si- beria. Aside from that, production of Russian consumer goods has been disappointing at a time when Soviet leaders feel pres- sure to give their own and the East European people a higher living standard.

Icturday, May 1973 THi lETHMIDOt HERALD 13 Scandal victim rehired WASHINGTON (AP) Jeb Stuart Magruder, his once promising future in government shattered by the Watergate scandal, is back working for the Inaugural Committee which goes out of business in another week. Magruder, executive director of the committee until last March, was rehired Monday by J. Willard Marriott, committee chairman. Government sources quoted in the New York Times Friday identified Magruder as the per- United States attorney has said will plead guilty with- out immunity and testify for the prosecution at the expected sec- ond Watergate trial. Alberta child killed in B.C. ARMSTRONG, B.C. (CP) RCMP identified a child killed Thursday in a two-car crash near this community in the Ofcanagan Valley eight miles north of Vernon, as James Salak, 3, of Edmonton. In fair condition in Vernon hospital Friday were the boy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Salak and another son, Timo- thy, 2, is in Armstrong hospital with undetermined injuries. Also in hospital was Hubert Monchanp of Vernon. Police said one 01 the cars was on the wrong side of the road. Committee officials declined to disclose Magruder's salary. He once served as executive di- rector of the committee at a salary of between and annually. He now is one of only four sa- laried employees left at the committee. One of the others is Sally Harmony, former secre- tary to G. Gordon Laddy, con- victed Watergate conspirator. TO STAY ON The committee gones out of business May 31, but Magr- uder's job probably will last longer. He was hired to oversee completion of financial records and subcommittee reports which are to be bound and pre- sented to President Nixon and the National Archives. Marriott said the job could last for months. Earlier this year Magruder left the committee to take a job as director of policy development in the com- merce department. Once an aide to H. R. Halde- man, White House chief of staff, Magruder joined the presiden- tial campaign committee and after the election took over at the Inaugural Committee. But in April he became the first high-level administration official to resign as a result ot disclosures in the Watergate scandal. He also is reported to be one of the first to tell his story to investigators and link other prominent officials to the case. Published reports said Magr- uder told investigators that for- mer Attorney-General John N. Mitchell and former White House Counsel John W. Dean HI had helped plan the Water- gate bugging operation and ar- range payoffs to buy sllentM from the men accused of the raid on Democratic National Committee headquarters.
