West Germans
Spurn all Offer
Accuse Reds of Using Berlin Issue
As Political Tool To Split Germany
BONN - West Germany yesterday rejected an East German
offer to reopen the Berlin Wall for Easter and Whitsun holiday visits
and accused the Communists of using the issue as a political tool to
keep Germany divided.
The West German government and the West Berlin senate an-
nounced jointly they had turned down a proposal for temporary re-
newal of the agreement that allowed about 500,000 West Berliners to

Seek BipartisanAgreement

visit relatives in East Berlin on
one-day passes at Christmas time.
East Germany had offered
Thursday night to reopen the wall
on the same basis on Easter.
March 29, and Whitsun. seven
weeks later. It would be the sec-
ond chance for families in the di-
vided city to get together since
Communists built the wall in Aug-
ust of 1961.
Agreement Misused
Chancellor Ludwig Erhard's
government and the West Berlin
sate, charging the East German
regime with misusing the Christ-
mas pass agreement for political
puiroses, said in their announce-
"The administrative agreement
on visits to East Berlin during the
past Christmas resulted exclu-
sively from humantarhanconsid-
edations. Despite this, the Com-
munist side, after the conclusion
of the agreement,. sought with all
means to make political capital
out of it.
"The East German Communist
Politburo made demands in this
connection that. if they were fu:l-
flled.would 1have interfered deep-
tthe political life of Berlin
and the freedom of its citizens.
The government and the senate of
Berlin object energetically against
such political misuse..'
The statement referred to East
German efforts to use the Christ-
mas agreement to support its
three-Germanys theory: that
West Germany. East Germany
and West Berlin should be regard-
ed as separate political entities.

LANSD EG :~-P-_.House mem-
bers have submitted a package of
proposed constitutional amend-
mrents to a six-man "negotitn
committee"to determine if tier
can be bipartisan agr eemen.
Partisan differences over what
the package should and should not3
contain emerged Thursday as Re-
publicans and Democrats met sep-
arately .
Neither party took a poll of its
members on the proposed changes
in election provisions of the state
constitution, but agreed to send
them to the special committee for
further talks
Great Expectations+
House Speaker Allison Green
(R-Kingston), said he expects
"something" in the way of a pack-
age to result from negotiations by
Tuesday, when the parties will
meet privately again.
"We need to find out if we have'
enough leeway to come up with
something. We recognize the is-
sue is orderly government. Thats
the reason for the negotiating
committee." Green said.
Republicans are not in accord
on the contents of the amend-
ments to be submitted to voters in
a special April 28 election, said
Green. He added that they might
supply "60 per cent" of the votes
needed to get them through the
House, however.
Among Democrats. coolness to-
ward the proposed amendments
was more apparent than at any
previous time.

Democratic sttae chairman Zol-
ton Ferency told his party's cau-
cus that the Democratic policyv
committee. made up of key par
leadters, isopposed to legislators
sending_ self-serving"_ amend-
ments to a v'ote of the1 people.
Democrats. it was reported. were
split over whether to endorse
amendments that would allow,
lawmakers to hold down either
government jobs and to give
House members four-year terms.x
Frozen Districts
Both of these changes are part
of the key resolution, the purpose
of which is to freeze existing legis-
lative districts for this year's elec-
tion unless a new apportionment
plan is in effect as of June 1.
One Democrat said he didn't
expect the amendment-origin-
ally put together by a bi-partisan
House group-to receive much
support in the Democratic caucus,
If the proposals eventually are
rejected by Democrats, he said, it-
probably will be because of ob-
jections to freezing te dimstrits.
Publicity Stunt
"The Democrats are willing to
let this campaign go on for a
while just for the publicity about
the new constitution needing
amendments." he said.
"But when the chips are down,
they're not going to support any
plan that would allow the Repub-
licans to keep control of the Legis-
lature, he added.

LP - Plans to sell
Brit ih road bulding equipment
to Cuba and to extend a huge'
credit to the Soviet Union for
massive purchases of factories"
were reported yesterday.
The disclosures came as Prime

Lyndon B. Johnson that Britain

Nonstrategic Purchase
At the same time, a group of
London banks was reported pre-
paring a credit to finance a deal{
with the Soviet Union for up to
$448-million worth of British fer-
tilizer and other nonstrategic
chemical plants.
The credit deal for the Soviet
Union also runs counter to United
States policy if it provides easye
terms over a long period. The
terms of the deal were not dis-
The Russians already have
signed an agreement covering 95
million pounds (266 million)
worth of factories, plant and

cember that the Russians will:i-

Cite Self-Isolation


Self-isolation of the two nation-
alities in Panama''s one of the
predominant"factors militating
against co-existence b e t w e e n
Americans and Panamanians. Di-
ana Gail Hoeneke, '64, of the
Canal Zone, and Gladys Oro. grad,
of Panama, said in a recent imter-
'If Americans living in the
Canal Zone want to make friends
with the people in Panama," Miss
Hoeneke commented, "that's their
own choice. Most of my own con-
tacts consist of shopping and
movies. You're away from home
friends. Some of mine are Pana-
and have people you like as
manians lving in the Zone."
Miss Oro affirmed that people
in the Canal Zone are completely
separated from Panamanians and
don't meet them socialy. Ameri-
cans tend to keep to themselves"
Poverty is another factor. Both
women emphasized the contrast
in living standards between the
Canal Zone and bordering Pana-3
ma City.
"Panama is intolerably poverty-
stricken. Zonians live as they
would in the United States and
have a right to. In the city, people
live in compounds and go bare-
footed. The noise and smell are
unbearable," Miss Hoeneke said.
"There are so many poor people
that in spite of the increasing
education trend. not too many
can afford to go to college. The
majority of those who do work
during the day and go to school
at night," Miss Oro noted.
"The Canal Zone is very nice
looking. almost as though it had

been part of the United States
which was placed in Panama,"
she added.
Mss Hoeneke hasn't observed
any personal hostility toward
Americans. "When we go into the
city we go to buy; we support
them. The people are quite friend-
ly: children look at you with curi-
"Impersonal anti-Americanism,
on the other hand, is characteris-
tic of Latin American people," she
'There has been quite a bit of
resentment for a long time," Mi~s
Oro said. "I. myself, have never
felt such antagonism. When we
were in Panama City and saw an
American, we wouldn't talk about
him as though he were a strange
"The dislike is something gener-
al,. not stemming purely from the
lower classes. Strongest feeling
comes from the students."
Voting Proposal
Gains in Support
LANSING .P--An effort to
lower the voting age from 21 to
18 picked up momentum Thursday
as four Republican senators added
their sponsorship to that of two
Democrats who initiated it.
Senators John Fitzgerald (R-
Grand Rapids) and Lester Begic
(R-Bay City) added their names
to Senators John Bowman (D-
Roseville) and William Ford (D-

duced the proposed constitutional

Still More Changes
House minority leader Josep
Kowalski D-Detroitb c said some
Democrats want-to add other
changes to the list-among them
restoring the elective offices of
some administrative board mem.-
Rep. E. D. O'Brien (D-Detroita

objections to the package, he ex-
