Under the proposed stabiliza- tion plan the sales baseline would annual sales averaged over five years about million in the first year.

Police, guarding the proces- sion route and patrolling roof- Soviet trade employee disappears BRUSSELS (Reuter) Ana- toli Tchibotarev, a clerk at the Soviet trade mission in Brus- sels, disappeared last Sunday, a spokesman for the Russian em- bassy said today. The spokesman said Tchibo- tarev failed to return from a Sunday afternoon drive, and was later .reported missing to police. He refused to comment on re- ports that he had been granted political asylum in Belgium. A senior Belgian official ear- ler had reported that a mem- ber of the trade delegation had disappeared. The newspaper De Standaard said today the disappearance might be linked to the defection in London of Soviet security Of- ficial Oleg Lyalin. Britain sub- sequently expelled 105 Soviet diplomats and officials. The Belgian foreign ministry issued a statement that Tchibo- tarev had not asked for political asylum, nor made any attempt lo get in touch with Belgian au- thorities or the Belgian repre- sentative of the UN high com- missioner's office for refugees. Tchibotarev does not possess diplomatic status, the ministry said. lops, watched the demonstrator warily but made no move to si- lence him. The emperor ignored the shouls. The yelling Incident, in a mh- ture of English and Japanese words, flared as the emperor's gold-trimmed carriage ap- proached the entrance to St. James's Palace where Hirohito was meeting ambassadors and diplomats from scores of coun- tries and the Commonwealth. The demonstrator refused to give his name, but told report- ers: "I was shouting out the orders that they used to shout at me when I was a prisoner-of-war In a Japanese camp. I was tor- tured for three months. "I think it's disgraceful that our establishment should be showing hospitality to these peo- ple." GUESTS OF THE QUEEN The procession from Buck- ingham Palace where the em- peror and Empress Nagako are staying with the Queen rolled on with no further incidents to St. James's Palace. The shouting incident under- lined widespread objections to the emperor's four day visit by war veterans, but so far the hostility has been shown largely by the absence of cheering hi the imperial presence. At a banquet at Buckingham Palace Tuesday night, at which the emperor wore once again the sash of the Order of the Garter, the decoration taken from him in 1M1 and now re- stored, the Queen said in her speech: "We cannot pretend that the past did not exist. "We cannot pretend that the relations between our two peo- ples have always been peaceful and friendly. However, it is pre- cisely this experience which should make us all the more de- termined never to let it happen rain."
