enough to draw a warning

from the American Academy of
Sciences that further Soviet-
American science exchanges
could be jeopardized.
Why were the organizers of the
nationwide s m e a r campaign
against Sakharov allowed to pur-r
sue their venture to the point of
provoking the West, especially
on the eve of the Geneva meet-
ings on European security for,
which the Soviets have been
pressing so hard?
Another mystery was why
Deputy Soviet Prosecutor Mik-
hail Malyarov summoned Sakha-
rov to his office Aug. 16 to warn
him sternly against meeting with
foreigners. Up to that time Sak-
harov had been relatively quiet
and was nearly inaccessible to
the Western press.
IN A NEWS conference five
days later, Sakharov said it was
Malarov's threatening tone that
was making him speak out.

contrived to alarm Western opin-
ion at a moment when an unruf-
fled West was needed to make
the European security discus-
sions go smoothly for Rusia.
Probably some who sought the
trial knew full well that the
"show trial" aspect of the pro-
ceedings, evoking memories of
Stalin's times, would stir opinion
in the West.
* Finally, there is the ques-
tion of the so-called U. S. "repre-
sentation list," which reflects the
state of. Soviet - American re-
lations. This is a list of Soviet
residents who have applied to
join close relatives living in the
United States.
LAST MAY, the names of about
670 people were turned over to
Soviet authorities by the Ameri-
cans. The Americans were given
reason at the time to expect
prompt action on a question with
enormous public relations poten-
tial for the Soviets.
