Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta CLEAff PlilCE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS -24 PAGES .-ussia agree skill during Nixon talks By WfLLIAM I.. RYAN Associated Press Correspondent Nikila Ki-ushchev sought from the United States some of the same things Leonid Brezluiev was aJter at the SIoscow summit. Krushchev failed and his col- leagues dumped him. Krushchev paid a price for failure, but. tbere may also be a price for success. Brezhnev, general secretary of Ihe Soviet Communist party, went at tilings moiie skillfully than Khrushchev and got much of what he sought, largely because the Americans happened to have similar goals al this lime. Still, there probably must IK some payment, and part ol Ihe price emerges in a serious indictment of the Soviet party by a Com- munist ally. The very fact that Brezhnev succeeded where Khrushchev's ponderous clumsiness failed, causes con- slcrnalion among some Comnuinisls, at least in Asia. Brezhnev's "Russia first" stance has provoked dismay and anger in North Vietnam. Hanoi seemed to wonder whether it was being treated as a bargaining chip by1 Brezhnev, The chip may not yet be altogether committed to the pot, because one of the things Brezhev wanted most, a trade agrecmcnl. was left hanging. But the horse- fi'ading continues Ihe chip slill could be useful. Different types 'Why could Brezluiev have his way and Khrushchev nol? Probably tecaiise Brezhnev belongs, not to tho rough-hewn old Slalin henchmen, but to a later crop of practical technocrats. Wilh him, practical aims arc important. Khrushchev bad economic problems similar tn and perhaps deeper than those facing Brezhnev. Like Brezh- nev, lie wanted Western and U.S. credits. Like Brezh- nev, he eyed the technologies lhat made Western coni Eumer economies flourish. But Krushchev constantly got in hiii way. Krushchev launched peace offensives one after an- other, even hintinp at one time, without actually saying it, that Lhc Americans and Russians ought Lu whack up the world into spheres ot influence between them. The Americans weren't buying. Richard Nixon, then found Khrushchev's "peaceful com- pclilion" theme a ncgathc concept suggesting a world forever divided into hostile camps. Krushchev himself blasted his own peace offensives sky high crisis after crisis: Berlin, the torpedoed JOCO Paris summit, the Cuba missiles. Avoid bluster Brczluiev is no such reckless gambler. Wanting tho same things Khrushchev wanted, he avoided ths Klinishchevian style of boast and bluster. His rationale for the summit was (hat it vindicaied a traditional "peaceful co existence" policy, eased the threat of nuclear war and thus assured "peaceful development of all socialist states.'1 Rome socialist states won't be impressed by that promise. One is North Vietnam. There seems a fear in Hanoi that in the bargaining with Nixon the Soviet chief has litlle lo offer except an imphcalion of less devotion lo the Noilh Vietnamese cause.

MOSCOW CAP) President Nixon and Communist parly chief Leonid Brezhnev signed a joint statement of Jong-ranga principles today agreeing to avoid military confronts I ions and envisaging eventual total world disarmament. For the near future, Nixon and the Soviet leader agreed in a companion communique to bold a European security con- ference-long a goal of the Soviet retime-quite soon. The conference will aim firsi r.t providing for an cut hack in military forces in Central Europe, notably those in East and West Germany. Nixon climaxed his seven days of summit talks at the Kremlin by inviting the three top Soviet leaders-Brezhnev, President Nikolai Podgorny and Premier Alcxei Kosygin lo visit the United States ''at a mu- tually convenient The communique said the So- viet trio acepted the hid but Henry Kissinger, the president's assi.staiiL for national security affairs, said the return summit would not. lake place until after Hie U.S. election in November. GIVES VIETNAM VIEWS The communique recited the opposing views of American and Soviet negotiators in Vietnam. However. Kissinger said tho war was Ihe. subject of 'long, sometimes difriicull and dc- lailed discusions" which left in doubt (he vital question of whether the two governments understand each other on tho issue and will co-operate to seek. peace. As for the prospects, 'only the future can say, and I want to Kissinger .said. The communique also dealt with Middle East tensions and said the United States ami the Soviet Union "declare their readiness (o play (heir part in bringing about a peaceful settle- ment." Of the (wo summit docu- ments, the statement of princi- signed by Nixon and Brezh- nev at a televised Kremlin cere- money was the more .sweeping. CAN BE IGNORED Kissinger caulioned. however, that it represented "an aspira- tion and attitude" that ei- ther side can ignore it at will. The presidential adviser ndcd that Nixon assumes Iho Soviet leaders take the docu- ment seriously or they wouldn't have signed il. The first basic principle af- firmed by Nixon and Brezhnev was that the two governments "will proceed from the common determination that in the nu- clear age there is no alternative to conducting their mutual rela- tions on the basis of peaceful coexistence." Differences hi ideology and social systems, Ihe document said, 'are not obstacles to the bilatonal development of nor- mal relations based on the prin- ciples of sovereignty, equality, non-interference in internal af- fairs and mutual advantage." The second principle said tho two countris "attach major im- portance to preventing the de- velopment of situations capablo of causing a dangerous exacer- bation of their Nixon and Brezhnev agreed "they will do their utmost to avoid military confrontations and to prevent the outbreak of nuclear war."

The Daily Express, z staunch supporler of royally, summed up the wave of emotion that swept the country, saying: "Many of his countrymen bitterly regrelled the political pressures that forced him to ab- dicate. The duchess should know that the king who was never crowned has a firm, en- during place in Brilish hearls.'1 QUEEN SENDS MESSAGE In a message of condolence to the duchess, the Queen ex- pressed grief at the death of her uncle and said: "I know that my people will always remem- ber him wilh gratitude and great affection and that his services to them in peace and war will never be forgotten."
