Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Detente failed to prevent war Easy assumptions fractured in Washington by latest crisis New Ytrk Times Service WASHINGTON The spirit of detents still remains alive in but the Middle East crisis has fractured some of the easy assumptions in this capital about the value of the new relationship with the Soviet Union.. CLIP AND SAVE THIS PAGE. IT MAKE A HANDY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING GUIDE. Despite all the hopeful words uttered by President Nixon last Friday night about the prospects for a Soviet American sponsored peace in the Middle many influential officials and politicians have been deeply disappointed and some even shocked by the failure of the detente policy either to prevent the war from starting or to stop it sooner than it did. The crisis last Wednesday night and Thursday over signs that Moscow might intervene militarily on Egypt's behalf not only produced a by the United but a widespread feeling that the value of detente was ques- tionable if the two super- powers in moments of crisis had to communicate by such cold war actions as military movements and alerts. The movement of an American carrier task force into the Indian Ocean Monday was a further example of this an ac- tion taken in ostensible response to the Soviet build up of its fleet in the Mediterranean. Sen. Henry Jackson. who leads the critics of the detente policy in believes the Russians have been trying to take advantage of American naivete.

He did his best to keep the door open to productive relations with Moscow despite irritation over the Soviet threat to intervene. The next night Nixon told the American people the alert was the result of the difficult since that over Soviet missiles in Cuba in 1962. In the same breath he said that he and Leonid the Soviet only avoided a confrontation but we moved a great step forward toward real peace in the Mid Many thoughtful analysts in. the state department and in other branches of government complain too much was made of the detente policy in the first place. They say for many years both powers have sought to avoid direct confron- tation and have found it in their political interest to carry out a number of trade and cultural but neither side has expected any short term changes in the other's vital policies. the talk about detente and the hoopla' around the summits I a false one ad- ministration official said. fact is that we both dis- trusted each other and this is shown by the big military Kissinger has taken the line that the Russians are tough and it would be irresponsible to accept Soviet goodwill in place of concrete deeds. But he has also argued that over the longrun the of seek- ing cooperation with the Soviet Union will prove more fruitful than the cold war philosophy of trying tp contain the Russians. one result of the Middle East crisis will be a more realistic appraisal in Washington of the limits of and probably less op- position on Capitol Hill to the Pentagon's defense budgets. U.S. army alert 'worried' Texan By HEDRICK SMITH New York Times Service MOSCOW When the Soviet American confronta- tion over the Middle East reached its climax last a Texas oil executive here on business winced at the thought that his at an American base in West might be pointing a missile at him in Moscow. mused Charles White of Tex. here in Moscow during a crisis while my son was one of the men who leapt to his feet when the alarm bell But after a brief reflective White and hundreds of other American executives at an oil gas show 'here went back to doing business with the Russians. In human White's predicament points up the strange and contradictory mixture of promise and ten- sion inherent in the difficult and uncertain transition from the old era of the cold war to a new era loosely called detente. Here in the flashback to temporary confrontation has shaken the process of east west accom- modation a bit. like the oil it carries on. the fragile trend grows best when Washington and Moscow can see parallel and mutual advantages and' hide their differences in the secrecy of various and it risks up- rooting when their national interests and their national prestige collides as in the Middle East. the Soviet leadership has put a much cooler facade on the strain of last week's alert than President Nixon. No one here has chosen to echo Nixon's public assessment that this was the worst Soviet American trauma since the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev asserted Friday that the risk of nuclear war had been reduced in the past decade by a network of west most im- portantly those between Washington and Moscow. The Soviet tactic is to make it look as though Nixon vastly over reacted. Pravda and other Soviet newspapers developed the theme that Moscow had been a model of restraint and calm self assurance while Washington was engaged in jittery that worried even its own European allies. But between the the Kremlin has been showing signs of strain its tactics have been suggesting was probably a fluc- tuating coalition within the ruling Politburo as the Middle East crisis unfolded. Soviet officials and East European diplomats now contend the situation would have been much more serious had there been no foundation of Soviet American cooperation. The minority view among western diplomats here Is that it was not detente that prevented an explosion put the military risks immediately underscored by Nixon's reac- tions. The rebuttal offered directly by Brezhnev's sup- porters is that Moscow did make some sacrifices for detente. When a Soviet Israeli rockets in a Syrian Moscow protested publicly but generally kept cool. When Arab leaders were still sounding reluctant about a cease fire in the Kremlin sold them on the idea and invited Kissinger here to seal the so the argu- ment goes. And Brezhnev himself de escalated Sadat's call for Soviet and American troops into an appeal for from the two big powers to observe the cease fire. The different Soviet1 and American public reactions to the latest underscore their different conceptions of detente. To many in the detente suggests an era of stability and cooperation without problems. Americans seem to want to know that Russians are friends and no longer rivals. The Soviet conception is more complex and more com- partmentalized. From the out- Moscow has had a clearer concept than the west of what it sought from detente acceptance of nuclear parity by guarantees for the present favorable division of trade that will help the Soviet economy spurt forward with help from western technology and capital. But this concept of peaceful coexistence assumes continu- ing competition and tension in many areas while it seeks cooperation in others. Sentence reduced on appeal Ont. A Collins Bay penitentiary pris- oner has had his six-month sentence for escaping custody at Edmonton in 1972 reduced to three months by an Ontario Court of Appeal here. Court was told Robert Law- rence Pritchard pleaded guil- ty in Port last March to a number of charges involving offences across the country and was sentenced to three years. Then he was charged sepa- rately with escaping custody in Edmonton last plead- ed guilty and was sentenced to six months. Pritchard appeal- ed this sentence. The court also reduced by 18 months the three-year sentence of Leo another prisoner at Collins Bay. The court said the trial judge appeared to be a about how long Pendleton had to serve when he was convicted at of break and enter with intent. Appeals against their sen- tences by Samuel Cleveland and Paul Douglas both at Joyceville peniten- and Clarence a prisoner at were dismissed by the court. Cleveland was sentenced to three years as Sault Ste. in on a morals charge. Harper received three yean in at Kingston on charges of break and enter ;
