$3.7 Billion Canal Plan To Water Texas

Cold War Blocs May Dissolve
Due to Resurgent Nationalism


Associated Press Staff Writer
r AUSTIN, Tex.-Texas, a scorch-
'ANed, dusty plain in the eyes of
Easterners, has a new Texas-size
master plan aimed at supplying
the state's exploding water needs
:<Tye "A,:. for the next half-century.
The price tag, too, is Texas-
%4 sized: $3.7 billion.
y ' Planners, spurred on by Gov.
John Connally's insistence on a
- .*modern program for an urbaniz-
- ing state, concocted an elaborate
scheme of reservoirs and canals
for the eastern two-thirds of Tex-
as, where most of the people are.
But West Texas, which in some
respects fits the Easterner's con-
ception of the state, apparently
baffled the planners.

tude that it is unequaled in any
political subdivision of the United
States," said Connally.

approved until after hearings this

- growing tip of Texas.

?Wvoirs, but only six of them in arid
West Texas, by the year 2020.

An essential feature of the pla

1 ht s ~p ir g *ewater management. This means
/ pn.t ethat the Fort Worth-Dallas area's

state water planning agency.

That's where pollution control
measures become important,
West Texas is another problem
area. That area, embracing giant
panhandle wheat fields, irrigated
cotton and the state's richest oil
pools, long has depended on un-
derground water.
But the sub-surface supply is
being pumped to the surface fast-
er than it is replenished by rain-
fall. Reservoirs aren't a satisfac-
tory answer because of high brine
content and low flow in the upper
reaches of rivers in the area.
The area's water needs by 2020
are estimated at nearly six tril-
lion gallons a year-enough to im-
merse to a depth of one foot the
states of Rhode Island, Connecti-
cut, Massachusetts, New Hamp-
shire and Delaware, plus the na-
tion's 10 largest cities.
It would cost too much, the ex-
perts said, to move water from
humid East Texas to the west,
So Texas is looking to the Co-
lumbia, Mississippi and Missouri
Rivers as possible sources of water.
"Active and vigorous leadership
at the state level" is needed to.
get Congress to include West Texas
in proposed regional plans for ex-
port of water from those rivers,
the plan says.
Texas has had water plans be-
fore, but for the first time a sense
of urgency and the prospect of de-
termined leadership make this one
a good bet to be translated into
dams and pure water.

Resurgent nationalism threatens
today to frustrate efforts of both
the United States and the Soviet
Union to keep their alliances in-
tact, and threatens in the long run
to shatter the concept of big mil-
itary blocs.
In both the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization and the War-
saw Pact, pressures of national
interests are producing rips in the
fabrics of what once were tightly
knit associations.
Because of the problems of the
two greatest powers, each with its
own restless and balky allies, long-
entrenched ideas about the Cold
War are being seriously chal-
A jolt to NATO, produced by
President Charles de Gaulle of
France, and the increasingly wide
chasm between the Soviet Union
and Communist China are open-
ing doors to free-wheeling diplo-
macy by the allies of both big
For many years after World
War II, Europe was the main
front of a Cold War between the
United States and the U.S.S.R.
Now, in the background, is an
emergent China, historically con-
temptuous of all foreigners, de-
veloping rapidly into a military-

nuclear power. Before long, China
may control the balance between
war and peace.
This is giving an entirely new
look to the Cold War, so far as
Europe is concerned. Statesmen
today are reflecting that the real
threats to peace in the future are
not going to be inside Europe, but

a secret mission, shortly after
Ceausescu indicated balkiness over
Soviet plans to strengthen Moscow
control over the Warsaw Pact.
The Americans are just as con-
cerned about what is going on in
France-and about new manifes-
tations from West Germany. Along
with De Gaulle's various activitiesj
-including his departure from the
NATO military organization -
these activities could represent yet
a new tear in the fabric.

in the hungry, underde-
nations of Asia and

Europe, East and West, feels the
impact of this sort of thinking.
Today, nations which under
Communist rule long occupied the
roles of docile Moscow satellites
are becoming balky. The existence
of another pole of Communist
authority, Red China, has encour-
aged this.
Red Chinese Premier Chou En-
lai now is in Romania for a week's
visit. He lost no time in cheering
the Romanians on in what he
called "defense of the independ-
ence of their country." Romania's
Communist party chief, Nicolae
Ceausescu, has questioned Soviet
leadership of East Europe. He said
in a speech recently that the no-
tion of Moscow's guidance for all
Communist parties had become
Romania is to the Soviet-dom-
inated Warsaw Pact military al-
liance in the East what France is
to NATO in the West, an irritat-
ing thorn in the side of the dom-
inant big power.
In the West, De Gaulle has
judged U.S. domination of NATO
as an affront to French sovereign-
ty. In the East, Ceausescu has de-
clared all military blocs ot be an-

Rainer Barzel, deputy chairman
of West Germany's ruling Chris-
tian Democratic Union and an
heir apparent to Chancellor Lud-
wig Erhard, said in a speech pre-
pared for delivery, in Washington
that "In a reunited Germany, and
within the framework of a Euro-
pean security system, there might
even be room for troops of the
Soviet Union." He proposed eco-
nomic and political lures for the
Russians in exchange for giving
up an independent Communist
state of East Germany for a re-
unified Germany.
This has been billed as a major
foreign policy statement, but the
Erhard government disassociated
itself f r o m Barzel's remarks.
Nevertheless, the words could have
strong impact.
Soviet policy has centered on
the idea of European security and'
keeping German fingers away
from a nuclear trigger. For the
foreseeable future, the Russians
might not be willing to surrender
East Germany to such as arrange-
ment, but the idea would have
powerful attractions. In addition,
the Russians might seek ways of
using this sort of idea as a lever in
further attempts to loosen the
ties which bind NATO together.
In any event, recent ferment in
both power blocs has produced an
air of crisis both for the United
States and the Soviet Union.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk,
evidently aiming his words at De
Gaulle's attempt to spearhead a
German settlement, emphasized
with a note of urgency that the
only way the problems of Ger-
many and the East-West chasm
could be solved was by mainten-
ance of a strong, united defense
in the West.

VIENNA, Austria-"Communist
espionage methods have basically
changed in recent times," veteran
Austrian spy-hunter Oswald Pet-
erlunger says.
"Nowadays spies do not cross
the Iron Curtain by secret pas-
sageways, but travel to the West
in sleepers," the head of the Aus-
trian state police explains. "And
they get their information from
newspapers and dinner conversa-
tions rather than by cloak-and-
dagger methods."
Kurt Seidler, his boss and head
of all Austria's security forces,
says Communist secret services
"are firmly established in such
capitals as Washington a n d
"There also is a good deal of
espionage activity in Austria, as
networks were set up here when
the country was occupied by the
Western allies and the Soviet Un-
ion," he adds.
Communist secret services in
Vienna are interested in technical,
economic and political informa-
tion about Austria-the latter es-
pecially since Austria tries to join
the Common Market. But Vienna
also is a favorite meeting place
where information and orders can
be exchanged, and is used as a

over to Austria as refugees are in
fact secret agents, Peterlunger
says. They can be divided into two
-Those who volunteer for in-
telligence work to get an oppor-
tunity to leave their Communist
home-country and go to the West.
This type contacts Austrian au-
thorities upon arrival.
-The more dangerous type, the
professional intelligence man or
woman who takes on the cloak of
a refugee. Systematic polic invest-
igation, finger-printing, and selec-
tive shadowing "in which nothing
is left to coincidence" help un-
cover this type of spy.

The Schumann Studies and the
Busoni Toccata contained the
same excitement in the soft por-
tions, but when the loud parts
came it seemed that nothing was
being said; there was no life, only
groups of notes being played.
The feeling of improvisation, so
vital to much of.Liszt's music, was
an aspect of Brendel's readings of
the Rhapsody and Bagatelle
which made the music interesting
and bubbling with spontaneity. But
the Pensees des mort,s in which
the improvisational element is a
much less vital ingredient, seem-
ed to die simply from its trying
length and monontony of sorrow-
