U.S., Russians
authorize pacts

{Cont, ,,d fros, Pae2,
-Cooperation in transportation
research, including railway oper-
ations and aviation safety.
At the signing ceremony Brez-
hnev turned on the charm and
won Nixon's accolade as "the
best politician in the room." The
ebullient visitor hammed it up
for the photographers. "Ne Snim-
ayete (Dost take any pictures),"
he joshed.
Earlier, while some 500 State
Department employes and Soviet
embassy workers watched, Brez-
hnev playfully reached for a nap-
kin to hide his face while photo-
graphers took his picture sipping
champagne. He wound up spill-
ing about half the glass onto the
floor. He recovered quickly, how-
ever, and the toasts went on.
AS NIXON led him from the
room at the end of the cere-
mony, the Soviet leader stopped
to chat with Fulbright, S e n .
Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.), and
other senators. Later, Humph-
rey quoted Brezhnev as say-
ing: "If the Senate won't come
to me, I'll come to the Senate."
Actually Fulbright, Humphrey
and several others did troop
across the street to Blair House,

snhere Brezhnev is staying, to
have lunch with him. Humphrey
said the emigration question
night come up in the discissions.
On Monday a Soviet spokesman,
Leonid Zamyatin, said that even
asking about emigration policies,
and practices was "tantamount
to interfering in the domestic
affairs of another country."
In a long, Politburo-style
speech, Brezhnev told the sen-
ators there is no "Jewish prob-
lem" in the Soviet Union and de-
clared: 'The Cold War, as far
as we are concerned, is over."
REACHING FOR his spectacles
and an old-style notebook, t h e
Soviet leader told a luncheon
group of some 20 senators that
only a tiny percentage of Jews
who want to leave the Soviet
Union have not yet received exit
permits.
In fact, he said, even as he was
traveling to the United States to
see President Nixon a number of
visas were granted.
Sen. Vance Hartke (D-Ind.), re-
ported after the extraordinary
three and a half hour session at
Blair House: "I think he was
opening the door and saying:
'For goodness sake can't we get
along'?"

for Yablonski murders Martha, the fairy princess

ERIE, Pa. OP)-Albert Pass,
a former lieutenant to ousted
United Mine Workers (UMW)
President W. A. "Tony" Boyle,
was convicted of first degree
murder yesterday in the slaying
of the Joseph Yablonski family.
Richard Sprague, special pros-
ecutor in the case since its birth,
said immediately afterward that
at least one more arrest would be
forthcoming, but he did not say
how quickly or whom it would
involve.
Sprague had said previously in
court that Boyle ordered the
killings, but Boyle steadfastly has
denied any knowledge of them.
The verdict, returned by an
Erie County Court jury after
about six hours of deliberations,
covered three first degree murder
counts, one each for UMW in-
surgent Yablonski and his wife
and daughter.
The government has maintain-
ed from the outset that Yablon-
ski was slain in a plot hatched
by the union's old hierarchy and
financed with union money.
Pass, 53, the highest ranking

ex-officer of the union yet charg-
ed in the case,- appeared un-_
shaken by the conviction.
He looked on woodenly as a
court clerk read the verdict,
whispered something inaudible
at one point to his attorney
Harold Dondleman, then stood
and nodded to his family before
being led back to his cell in the
Erie County Jail.
"It is obvious from the testi-
mony in this case that someone
in Washington gave the green
light to Mr. Pass," said Sprague
after the verdict was delivered.
He declined to be more spe-
cific about his use of the word
"someone" however.
"There will be at least one
more arrest," Sprague said.
"When we take action, it will
speak for itself.
"This jury heard the evidence
and they came to the conclusion
that there was a murder for hire
in the hierarchy of the UMW,"
Sprague said. "It's obvious in
this case that somebody gave
Pass the green light."

NEW YORK-Once upon a time
there lived a fairy princess,'
Martha Mitchell by name. She
lived with her husband John, her
daughter, her bodyguards, and
her telephones in a lovely $200,000
apartment on Fifth Avenue in the
hamlet of Fun City, also known
as New York.
Princess Martha reigned over
her apartment with a loving
hand. When Prince John would
come home after a hard day
fighting indictments in court,
Martha would be sure to have his
dinner on the table and a scotch
in his hand.
ALL WENT WELL until an
evil group of trolls, also known
as reporters, decided to camp
outside of the Mitchell apart-
ment to photograph the loving
couple within.
Yesterday, Princess Martha
could stand it no longer. Charg-
ing that the evil trolls kept her a
prisoner in her apartment, she
came out of her domain and told
the reporters off.

"You know, I can't get away..
I have never done anything
wrong in my life, ever. I wasn't
even sent to the principal's office
when I was in school."
AND WITH those remarks,
Princess Martha sped back to
her dream apartment on the
trusty wings of Otis, her iron
steed.
We must presume that she will
happily ever after, with John,
her daughter, the bodyguards,
and Ma Bell at her side.
