Soviet-German treaties
Ea stalled on border issue

BONN (P)'- A deadlocked
West German ' parliament yes-
terday postponed for a week its
vote on ratifying Chancellor
Willy Brandt's treaties with the
Soviet Union and Poland after
Brandt and the powerful oppo-
sition failed to overcome differ-
ences.
Opposition leader Rainer Bar-
zel rejected Brandt's demand
that Parliament vote at once,
and insisted on more time to
consider the momentous issue
affecting East-West relations.
The treaties, signed in 1970,
renounce the use of force and
recognize German territorial
losses in World War ff.
"The situation needs addi-
tional clarification," Barzel told
a tense parliament session
shortly before he and Brandt
met privately during a recess
and agreed to put off the show-
down vote. Brandt accepted the
postponement after B a r z e 1
warned he would lead his oppo-
sition lawmakers into a solid
"no" vote.
Barzel did not explain the
"additional clarification" he
wants, but apparently this
meant trying again to get firmer
Soviet recognition of Bonn's
hopes to eventually reunite East

and West Germany into an eco-
nomically powerful nation of
78 million.
The setback came only 24
hours after Brandt thought he
had won a compromise with
Barzel assuring the opposition
votes the chancellor needs to
keep alive the treaties and his
own political prestige.
Tuesday's compromise, worked
out at Brandt's home with So-
viet Ambassador Valentin Falin
sitting in, came unstuck when
Barzel balked at a later Soviet
reaction of it.
The compromise was a dec-
laration interpreting the trea-
ties as providing no legal basis

for permanently cementing post-
war borders, including the di-
vision between East and West
Germany.
A secret Soviet note, appar-
ently expressing reservations on
Bonn's backing away from in-
terpreting them as border trea-
ties, touched off new objections
and knocked the props from un-
der the agreement Brandt
thought he had with Barzel.
Barzel was careful not to rule
out the possibility that his sup-
porters might eventually vote
"yes" on the treaties if given
more time to work out another
compromise.

Union head testifies
in Yablonski probe
PITTSBURGH I'- United Mine Workers (UMW)
President W.A. "Tony" Boyle and two other UMW of-
ficials appeared yesterday before a federal grand jury in-
vestigating the murders of union insurgent Joseph "Jock"
Yablonski and his wife and daughter.
Two more UMW officials were expected to testify before
the same grand jury later.
There was no official comment on the nature of his
appearance. But reliable government sources said ques-
tioning centered on a special UMW fund allegedly set up to
