They hurry around the world on exhausting tours lo carry their message and image to other countries and to discuss international problems at UK? ummit. Outstanding tensions may not always be overcome at such meetings. Bui paths to solution can be explored, relations can become more cordial, trade ex- (hangcs are often boosted, and talesmen come to understand each other Iwtter. World leaders seem convinced a tele a-tcle at the summit can produce quicker and more posi- tive results than traditional di- plomacy, even if official trips mean huge police mobilization, vocal per- haps bad eggs and even bombs. The latter part of this year Fund backs iced markets growers o lias been a growing amount of, diplomacy. There have been moments of flamboyance and humor.

Communist party Leader' Brezhnev went lo Belgrade in September and a few weeks later to France, his first trip outside tbe Soviet orbit since he became parly chief in taw. Kosygin went to Canada and then Cuba soon after visiting geria and Morocco. There have been example- in' success as well as comparative failure in summit .statesmanship this year. In September, Brandt's talks with Brezhnev in the Crimea were described as an important step towards better relations be- tween the Second World War en- emies. j VISIT tJEIUlA.N'y I Lingering war wounds also healed when Belgium's King Baudouin and The Nether- lands' Queen Juliana paid the first Belgian and Dutch state visits io West Germany since the war.
