REUNION-Former Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry
S. Truman met yesterday when Eisenhower paid a visit to the
Truman Library in Independence, Mo. This was the first time
either one had called on the other since Eisenhower's first
inauguration in 1953. Reportedly, Truman, had been angered by
charges against his administration made by Eisenhower in the
1952 campaign, resulting in 'a long period of personal coolness
between the two. '

News reports listed four points
as the heart of the Kremlin's
thinking on how to end the pres-
ent stalemate on Berlin. They
were, briefly:
1) A four-power agreement on a
"new status" for West Berlin,
guaranteeing the freedom of its
inhabitants and free communica-
tion between West Berlin and
West Germany.
2) East German pledge to the
Soviet Union to respect West Ber-
lin's new status.
Recognize East Germany
3) Western - including West
German-recognition of East Ger-
man sovereignty, and
4) A peace treaty either with
both Germanies, or one between
the Soviets and East Germany,
to be concluded only after an
East-West agreement on the pre-
vious three points.
An Associated Press story from
Moscow yesterday said these pro-
posals were dramatically leaked
to correspondents in the early
hours yesterday morning.

United States delegate Francis

could not support harsh boycott-

African-Asian nations and Cuba.
But he said he sympathized with
those that want them because of
South Africa's long defiance of
UN appeals to change its apart-
heid laws.
He told the UN Assembly Spe-'
cial Political Committee that "the
United States is irrevocably and
unalterably opposed to the poli-
cies of apartheid. The United
States is committed to do its best
to persuade South Africa to alter
its policies."
