PRAGUE (P) - Government
leaders met yesterday to discuss
measures needed to bring Czecho-
slovakia back to as normal condi-
tions as possible under the Soviet
bloc occupation.
No dtails were disclosed, but
the session coincided with reports
that Soviet leaders were meeting
in Moscow. These accounts said
the Moscow meeting could prove
significant to Czechoslovakia's fu-
ture course.
Despite the Soviet crackdown on
Czechoslovakia's liberalized pol-
icy of free speech and an uncen-
sored press, signs persisted that
the public and some leaders still
are defying the occupation forces.
Prace, the trade union newspap-
er, reported residents in the in-
dustrial region of Ostrava are
calling a special election to re-
place Drahomir Kolder, accused
of collaborating with the Rus-
sians, in the National Assembly.
Kolder is a former member of the
Communist party Presidium.

yepterday to give his supporters
in at least 12 states a chance to

The others were Minnesota,

Clifford declares
project not part

WASHINGTON (A) - Secretary
of Defense Clark M. Clifford, de-
claring the United States must ne-
gotiate with Russia from strength,
yesterday ordered work on t b e
Sentinel antimissile system press-
ed forward.
Clifford exempted the Sentinel
from Congress-ordered spending
His action came several days af-
ter it was learned that Pentagon
officials were discussing possibility
of deferring start of the Sentinel
for some months, in part, because
Communist China is nearly a year
late in testing its first: long range
ballistic missile.
Speaking to the National Press
Club, Clifford also defended the
pushing ahead with tests of ad-
vanced Minuteman and Poseidon
missiles incorporating. multiple
He noted the concern expressed
by some critics that development
of the antimissile system - which
is currently designed to deal'most-
ly with the Chinese threat - and
development of the multiple war-
heads would cause Russia to react
with a big stepup in its own wea-
pons and would harm the prospect
of U.S.-Russian arms control
Clifford declared that he does
not share these fears. He said the
United States is pushing the new
weapons developments "on the
basis that a position of substantial
strength is essential and is the
best position from which we can
negotiate agreements that m a y
make the threat of nuclear war
increasingly remote."
The $5 billion Sentinel system,
while aimed at China, may grow
into a $45 billion project against
Russian missiles, in the view of
some critics.
Clifford voiced the hope that
"at an appropriate time" arms
control talks can take place be-
tween the United States and :us-
It was evident t h a t Clifford
feels this is not an appropriate
time because of the Russian-led
invasion ofCzechoslovakia and an
apparent return by t h e Soviet
Union to hard line policies in Cen-
tral Europe.
In this same vein, Clifford de-
clared that the events in Czech-
oslovakia "h a v e clearly demon-
strated that a significant Ameri-
can military presence in Western
Europe is still needed."
Thus, he came down hard
against any further. reduction of
U.S. forces in Europe.
At the same time, Clifford call-
ed on North Atlantic Treaty Or-
