Berlin traffic treaty

unites split
BERLIN (A') - East and West
Germany took- a long stride
toward normalized relations yes-
terday, signing the first state
treaty ever initiated by the di-
vided Germans since they be-
came rivals in the postwar era.
Afterward the two chief nego-
tiators strongly hinted t h e y
would take up cessation of shoot-
ings along the Berlin Wall and
the minefields on the inner Ger-
man dividing line in a next round
of negotiations.
West German State Secretary
Egon Bahr and his East Germ-
an counterpart Michael Kohl
signed the first all-German trea-
ty regulating traffic by road,
rail and waterways inside the
divided country.
Attached to the treaty was a
letter from East Germany prom-
ising visiting rights to W e s t
Germans. The letter said East
Germany for the first time would
allow its people to visit the West
in emergency cases such as
births, deaths and illnesses.
East Germany also promised to
give West German citizens 30
visiting days a year in the Com-
munist state.
There was speculation in East
Berlin that East Germany want-
ed West German guarantees
against refugee flight as a con-
dition for liberalized application
of the promised freedom to visit.
To halt defections, the Com-
munists built the Berlin wall in
1961 and mined the East- West
frontier with order to guards to
shoot to kill.
Kohl announced he and Bahr

Germany
would meet June 15 to begin
talks about a general treaty cov-
ering all phases of life among
the Germans. He emphasized
that such a treaty would have
to be on the basis of internation-
al norms between equal and in-
dependently sovereign partners.
Bahr avoided giving direct re-
cognition to East Germany in
the traffic accord which takes ef-
fect after confirmation by the
two parliaments.
The traffic treaty was the
second pact Bahr and Kohl
have completed.
After -last year's four-power
Berlin Accord by the United
States, Britain, France and the
Soviet Union, they worked out
the details on visits to East by
West Berliners and eased ac-
cess traffic controls by the East
Germans.
These take effect after a final
four power signing in West
Berlin June 3.
Von Braun
resi gns post
WASHINGTON (P) - Dr. Wern-
her von Braun, pioneer rocket
expert, announced yesterday he
is resigning from the U.S. space
agency to join private industry.
Starting July 1, von Braun
will become a vice president for
engineering at Fairchild Indus-
tries, which is developing ad-
vanced scientific satellites f o r
launch in 1971 and 1975.
He retiresfrom a desk job
brainstorming space buses and
moon cities for the National
Aeronautics and Space Admin-
istration, where his title is de-
puty associate administrator for
planning.
The reasons for his departure
aren't clear. He said in a brief
printed statement that he wants
to 'help implement some space
projects I feel are of particular
importance," but didn't say what
they were.
Von Braun, born 60 years ago
in Wirsitz, Germany, is a giant
in the history of military and
peacetime rockets.
Before his 33rd birthday he had
developed the V2 rocket bomb
for Hitler. At the end of World
War II he evaded capture by
the Soviet Union and came to
the United States, where he be-
came a citizen.
In this country he built mili-
tary rockets and later the Saturn

for granted today by everyone
but groundskeepers, the dande-
lion was once the subject of in-
tensive investigation by the gov-
ernment. Searching for a rubber
substitute during World War II,
federal researchers experiment-
ed with the milky sap found in
the plant's stem, a type of latex.
When the war ended, so did
the experiments, with a final
verdict that making rubber from
dandelions was impractical.
The dandelion's use as a food
has a more successful history,
according to Eric Nelson of Soy-
