Germans agree to
ease border travel

BONN, Germany (A") - East and
West Germany completed action
yesterday on a trafic treaty easing
border restrictions. and began talks
on one to normalize relations be-
tween the long hostile states.
The historic document, ratified
Monday by East Germany's rub-
ber-stamp parliament, was approv-
ed by the West German Bundestag
last month.
The two diplomats immediately
resumed efforts to negotiate a
treaty normalizing relations be-
tween their two countries, still sep-

arated by an 816-mile border where
East German guards shoot to kill
defectors to the west.
The traffic treaty will ease pas-
sage through the border by road,
rail and inland waterway.
Added concessions by E a s t
Germany allow Germans to visit
relatives across the border for a
total of 30 days a year, provide for
unlimited tourist traffic via recog-
nized travel bureaus, and for he
first time permit East Germans
below pension age to visit the west
on pressing family matters.
